Was not let to board as the site failed to notify me if a friend purchased the ticket they need to be present at check in. Now we are not able to get a refund and paid for a ticket we will never use. Ridiculous rules as I fly from London and she lives in the US. How can she be present to show her card. $480 down the drain on top of that I had to purchase a ticket at the airport since I was already there
Pros: "People were friendly. Flight was comfortable."
Cons: "Staff incorrectly assessed documents needed for visas, and told us we were incomplete and needed to return home. Instead of looking up policy, we were denied boarding mid-flight, missed a wedding, and had to spend three days in London instead of our destination. Also, we got bug bites during the flight that turned out to be from bed bugs, which followed us home and caused much frustration for months."
Pros: "Nothing really, seems everyone is underwhelming in this market"
Cons: "Quality of food and service"

Cons: "The food options always seem to run out by the back of the plane and this time didn't match the menu they gave me at the start of the flight, not that I minded because the option I was given was pretty tasty."
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "First time flying with a partner through Delta, so they stuck us on a Virgin Atlantic flight meaning I didn't get my free Delta check in bag (a fee of $60 each way) when I have gotten it every other flight I have ever taken with them. It was also 2 whole hours late in boarding."
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable and smooth flight"
Cons: "Poor communication about the reasons for our 4 hour delay. Also, we purchased Economy X, which should have given us priority boarding, but we were told we had to stand in the general admission queue."

Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"
Pros: "We paid extra for exit row seats so we had good leg space"
Cons: "The seats are so small that only your backside fits on it and we are not big people. There is no support for the thigh and I had severe cramps after leaving the aircraft. The flight to LA with Virgin Australia was far more comfortable."
Pros: "The selection of entertainment"
Cons: "My seats headphone connection did not work. I had to hold it and wiggle it around if I wanted to listen to anything."
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, excellent food and drinks. Very happy with the service we received"

Cons: "Reduction in available seat space will probably make me look at other suppliers the flight over on air New Zealand was significantly more comfortable"
Pros: "Crew, fabulous, Plane configuration, GENEROUS, just the best flight I've experiences in a very long time!"
Cons: "Some meal choices were a bit sparse. That's my only complaint!"
Cons: "Seat reclining happens even during meal time and landing! I had to ask crew to get passenger in front to put seat back upright during meal time!!! Crew should've noticed themselves and ask the passenger without my prompting!! So annoyed!! I complained to VA too"
Pros: "The service went a mile farther. It is my favourite airlines!"
Pros: "Very courteous and professional crews. Clean and comfortable plane. Pilots handled delay and weather superbly. Dinner was delicious."
Cons: "Dinner was great but could have used more snacks. Breakfast was ok. Movies were dated but okay."
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "The crew was great with updates. Checking in was a bit confusing though as not all the crew knew what was up. It was a very crowded day so it was bound to be a bit rough. Of my last four flights to London Virgin Atlantic was the best!"
Cons: "Heathrow was a bit confusing and it took a moment to get my bearings. The crew was a bit disorganized but that seemed to get solved quickly."
Cons: "I couldn't rank the food or entertainment as I didn't try the food since it was for purchase only, and there was no entertainment offered."
Pros: "Everything was great ! The staff very nice and the plane is absolutely amazing .."
Cons: "We paid for extra leg but there was no difference between normal and extra .."
Cons: "Why are there no plug-ins?! That was very disappointing..."
Pros: "The food and service was excellent. Love it!"
Pros: "Great cabin comfort and entertainment. Very nice place to be."
Cons: "Cabin crew less warm and professionally nice than Virgin. One point that needs addressing is that when the cabin crew or, even more so, the pilot came on the PA, the sound level was so much louder than that of the entertainment system. You had people jumping out of their seats and it was very uncomfortable."
Had a great experience. Very friendly staff
On time, cordial service,
Pros: "Friendly crew Flight left on time Refreshments were alright Thankful for the free WiFi"
Cons: "Seats were small Hardly any space below seat to store hand luggage Aisle was tight"
Cons: "Internet and plane was small and old"
Cons: "Extremely frustrated. Upon booking my ticket, I was told it wouldn’t be a full flight. At no point did u receive any information alerting me that it was going to be a full flight. I was extremely uncomfortable due to COVID."
Pros: "Almost as soon as we finished taking off, we were landing. A one-hour trip doesn't let you really love or hate anything."
Pros: "Crew was great, seats were comfy and the entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but it happens."
Pros: "I love all the complementary stuff on flight"
Cons: "Better ear buds"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and efficient. Flight was pretty smooth."
Cons: "On time departure would have been nice. 2.5 hours late."
Pros: "Yes, the crew was helpful and patient. The food and drinks were good."
Cons: "Clarity in the PA system could be better. Too much background noise."
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly or helpful. Not even a drink service on this flight. Atlanta is over crowded and always a problem. Couldn’t avoid it this time."
Pros: "Flight was short"
Cons: "My seat didn’t have a window. The woman who booked it told me there was limited recline, THERE WAS NO RECLINE, and she left out there is no window even though she asked me if I wanted window or isle and I chose window. I felt like I was in a closet. Landing was incredibly harsh."
Pros: "The flight crew was great. Very friendly and efficient and there were free snacks with the comfort + seating with Delta. It’s airplane seating so it is what it is but I was not uncomfortable."
Cons: "I’m not sure everything was really great."
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Pros: "Ryan was great! Very nice and professional, would love to see him on a future flight."

Cons: "Rough landing."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "An hour and a half late, terrible communication about scheduling"

Cons: "Food was ok...cramped space"
Pros: "Entertainment choices were plentiful."
Cons: "The flight attendants were borderline rude. No eye contact, no smile, not helpful when asking a question (overhead compartments were full in my section; I asked what I should do, response: „ I don’t know either“ and walked off. I went to find a spot further up the aisle..."
Pros: "Wonderful service. Staff was attentive and helpful. Flight was great. I got to watch a couple movies and was able to retrieve my oversized luggage easily and even quickly. Thank you, Delta!"
Cons: "I’m not a seasoned traveler and packed some needed items for our home out-of-state in an oversized bag. That bag ended up costing me $200 extra at check-in. I could’ve Fed-ex’d for cheaper or put into two separate bags for cheaper. Then, my flight was delayed an hour."
Cons: "There was a LOT of turbulence and the landing was a rough one too. Plane was cramped with very little leg room and my seat back was broken."
Cons: "This is the second flight in a row in which Delta has either cancelled or rescheduled my flight at the last minute. Last time I was stranded in the Atlanta airport overnight waiting literally all night for them to return my luggage (which never came, and then was late even to my final destination). I will not be using Delta in the future."
Cons: "Delta allowed flights with empty seats going to the same destination to take off without trying to fill them w passengers who were delayed on other flights. Our flight was delayed more than three hours, and it’s a shame that some folks could have been accommodated on that flight but were not."
Pros: "flight attendants"
Cons: "As soon as we all were boarded we where told there was a mechanical issue. Sat on the boarded cramped flight for 2 hours until issue was fixed. If there was a mechanical issue then the plane should’ve not been boarded until it was fixed. Much rather have waited in lobby for 2 hours than on a plane with no food and water. Or at least alllowed us to deboard while issues where resolved."
Pros: "Service vey Good. Nice choices. Comfort seating very nice"
Cons: "WiFi awful. Useless."
Pros: "The LGA team did great in difficult situation"
Cons: "Sat on the plane on the tarmac for over an hour in the cold..."
Cons: "They lost my bag."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding; crew had the foresight to ask for travelers to gate-check their bags due to a full flight and that saved a lot of boarding time and hassle."
Cons: "The seats on this aircraft looked like that had a 2-2 configuration; it's now 3-2 making it pretty cramped in Coach."
Pros: "Compared to previous flight - this was so much better with upgrade to first class and extra space."
Pros: "Left on time, no hassles at boarding. We were in premium economy and seating was comfortable for both of us, not-too-tall people. FA were quite friendly."

Pros: "quick trip, no problems"
Pros: "friendly staff check in was fast food was good"
Cons: "as always not enough room in the seats"
Pros: "Everything about it was excellent, which is saying a lot for a guy who travels a lot."
Cons: "I realize that a flight attendant is there ultimately for safety reasons, but one of the three was particularly brusque in her interaction."
Cons: "sitting on the runway for over 3 hours without any water, snacks, or even video entertainment screens or outlets to charge phones"
Pros: "Comfy seats"
Cons: "No earphones available. I had forgotten mine but crew stated that none had been put on the flight. Lunch was served but no snacks later as is usual on an almost 4 hr flight. I always fly First Class for the extra room and perks of crew service. Crew spent most time in galley chatting. Not a bad flight by any means but I guess I have been spoiled by superior service on all of my other weekly Delta flights."
Cons: "Delta doesn't manage their flight schedules and personnel with backup or standby crew in order to assist whenever there are delays across domestic flights. The plane was late to arrive at the gate and we were also told that while the pilot was ready to take off, we couldn't leave because we were waiting for a flight attendant to land from Pittsburgh (we were in La Guardia airport in NYC). delta would rather I convenience the flyer instead of hiring more personnel or figuring out standby or backup plans for delayed flights."
Cons: "I had a problem getting a boarding pass that was a carryforward from a problem that I had had on the flights from the USA to Frankfort 2 weeks earlier. On those flights, I was denied boarding on the flight from Amsterdam to Frankfort because of miscommunication between Delta and KLM. Apparently, the staff who dealt with that problem did not note that the issue had occurred, so it looked like there were "out-of-sequence" segments on my initial flight and I was not allowed to check in electronically. It took several calls to KLM and Delta in Frankfurt to try to resolve the problem and finally it was determined that it could only be resolved at the airport. Other than a very nice KLM representative, the other people I talked to seemed unwilling to engage in helping me and sent me along to someone else. Although the problem was ultimately fixed, this was not a great customer service experience."
Pros: "I make this trip every month. And this crew is the best I had in a while."
Pros: "Sitting in the exit row (52H) gave me lots of space and the temperature was great."
Cons: "My original flt KE018 on 03Apr17 was a different story; had adequate space, but the temperature was warm making it uncomfortable to sleep during the 13 hour flight. Unfortunately, the A-380 does not have manual overhead air vents."
Pros: "We landed 50 min early!"
Cons: "The aircraft could have been cleaned more thoroughly before boarding."
Pros: "Delta always has a nice professional crew. We were served within a reasonable time and I felt comfortable the whole flight."
Cons: "The pressure is the cabin with really bothering me. I've flown several times and never had the pressure to bother me but it was really hurting my head."
They canceled our flights that went on anyway.

Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."

Cons: "Lost luggage"
Pros: "the trip was excellent and comfortable. LOved the windows that shaded out rather than the having to pull down the plastic blind. entertainment on board top notch screen huge One hostess , Helen was absolutely fantastic and the best I ve had on my many trips. I will recommend KLM whenever I can"
Cons: "the headrest is hard. Apart from that- all was fine"
Cons: "Boarding was very slow."
Pros: "Crew was pleasant but not attentive to detail. Bypassed is completely for snack and drink towards end of 9 hour flight!"
Cons: "Pay attention to passengers."
Pros: "Smooth and faster than expected trip. I felt free to get up and walk around on this long flight. Food was good. I sat in seat with extra leg room for the first time and it was worth it"
Pros: "Good food, friendly service"
Cons: "More trash pickup; only one round of beverage service"
Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "The staff tried to help me when it was evident we would not arrive on time"
Cons: "The connecting flight is too short of a time. We were late out of LAX and I missed my connection and had to sit in airport for 5 hours. Missed my grandson’s third birthday party. Just made me sad as Travelled from far to try to make it."
Cons: "Still waiting to board after missing this connection had to be booked on another airline"

Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."
Pros: "On both of my flights to New York City, I was amazed at how friendly and helpful the flight attendants were to the passengers. On my short flight from Basel to Amsterdam, a young French speaking girl was concerned about how to manage getting to her next gate. The flight attendants talked to her and arranged for someone to take her there. On my longer flight from Amsterdam to New York City, there was a customer who was in distress about missing a previous flight and not making it to her connecting flight in New York. One of the flight attendants reassured her until she stopped crying and calmed down. That same flight attendant was always so positive and cheerful in all she did. The rest of the crew was top notch. This was my best experience flying in such a long time. Well done, KLM crews of flights 1984 and 0645 on July 10!"
Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My check in luggage was in very bad condition when I receive it. My clothes were all wet and they got bab by each other’s colour. Many clothes are not in a condition to wear now. Those were expensive and I had a big loss because of that."
Pros: "Lovely staff, good food, great movies."
Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."
Cons: "No proper info regarding cancellation. Staff was unfriendly and abruptly responded to passengers."
Pros: "Flight was on time and quick and comfortable"
Pros: "Comfort economy well worth the extra."
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Pros: "Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good."
Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"
Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."

Pros: "That we didn't crash"
Cons: "Being delayed and missing my connecting flight. No entertainment onboard (for hours and hours)."
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
Pros: "Easy airport business"
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
Pros: "The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful."
Cons: "The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be."
Pros: "Flight attendants tried their best given what they had to work with."
Cons: "They can not retire these old Boeing 747's soon enough. Due to mechanical problems, our flight arrived at LAXfour and a half hours late and further problems with the cargo door caused an additional one hour delay of our take off."
Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"
Pros: "No entertainment or food needed on a half hour flight. Otherwise excellent."
Pros: "KLM food and service are great"

Pros: "It was very comfortable"
Cons: "The crew was great"
Pros: "10 hour flight - I was well looked after, regular drinks, the food and snacks were good enough and tasty. The in flight entertainment was good - latest movies and worked a great variety of tv, books and movies. The airplane was modern and comfortable"
Cons: "Crew sucked, comfort sucked, british air sucks. Worse than even US airlines which I didn’t think possible"
Cons: "I paid $68 to pick up seats on airplane, but they didn't give us the right seat numbers that we wanted"
Pros: "Seats were small."
Cons: "The boarding process was inefficient and long. The seats don’t recline and very little leg room."
Cons: "Flight was late, boarding was archaic, seat pitch in for economy was tighter than I am accustomed, Could not purchase foo or drink because cash was not accepted & my credit cards were denied for offline purchase. No snacks or drink machines in boarding waiting area. Crew looked uninterested"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Hectic boarding; airplane seemed very old"
Pros: "Not much, except that I got to Nashville."
Cons: "I was told that boarding was about to stop, and that the doors would close any minute. As it turned out, this did not happen for at least 30 minutes. I was among the first on board, and really worried I'd miss the flight. The bathroom sink was out of order, no way to wash hands, a health hazard!"
Cons: "The plane, the arrival time and the service"
Pros: "new planes, good food, professional vrew"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "Not even a free water/soda was offered, need to purchase everything."
Pros: "BA crews are always great. Also excellent that they don’t have those annoying M&S menus on LCY flights. I don’t object to paying, but it just slows everything down."
Pros: "Everything it was 100 percent"
Cons: "Luggage is held up but I will eventually get it here"
Cons: "Always late always charge for water that’s sad"

Pros: "Level of information"

Pros: "Fast security and passport control at both ends, Home in 30 mins after landing"
Pros: "Only good thing was that British Air didn’t crash us"
Cons: "British Air overbooked the flight; I checked in on time but there were no seat assignments left. I went to the gate anyway to try; the gate attendant kept me waiting for a seat so long that the gate closed. He was not nice. His colleague booked me on a different flight to LCY airport (instead of Heathrow). But that different flight got diverted to Manchester. So the fast that BA overbooked cost me an extra 6 hours and $140 to buy a train & tube ticket to get back to Heathrow. The fact that there was not a single smile among the staff, and I had to argue to even get on the second flight, is inexcusable."
Pros: "Plane had to be de-iced which delayed departure time and then wait for landing slot."
Cons: "Heathrow need to build more capacity to reduce emissions and delays."
Cons: "Being charged for everything! Even a coke....really! Couldn't reserve a seat until 24 hrs. without paying extra ."
Pros: "The crew, all the way around were very attentive & courteous, food was great!"
Cons: "I was completely satisfied with this airline, would use again!"
Cons: "Absolute nightmare dealing with British cancelled flight and then having them rebook me with American, their "partner" company. Spent three hours this morning dealing with these two unprofessional companies and their lack of communication between each other."
Pros: "Crew in board was great"
Cons: "Representative at gate was rude reminding me I was late when we had to wait on bus for others."
Pros: "Made the long flight feel short and very comfortable."
Cons: "It was fine, it’s just a flight."
Pros: "We left ahead of time"
Cons: "No gate due to early arrival which meant we had to wait for a coach which negated early arrival."
Cons: "The passengers on the plane were rude. No consideration for others when departing the plane."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Check in counter make difficult: my cary on luggage is standard, they should know it."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled less than 12 hours prior to departure. The airlines switched our flight to one that ended at a different airport (where our car was not located). Called the airlines multiple times but only heard a message that they were "busy". British airlines was again unable to help us at the airport. We had to go to American to have them "hack in" and adjust our British airway flight itenerary. I will never fly British airlines again. They couldn't have been less helpful if they tried"
Pros: "Good, friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Flight was 60 mins late due to ATC issues at LHR and baggage loading problems at FRA. Also bus boarding at FRA on a hot day."
Pros: "Crew was fine. Didn't really do much."
Cons: "No food or beverage served on this 1.5 hour flight unless you paid extra. Not even water. Had to pay extra to select seats. You could wait until the day of the flight and do it for free. I wish I was informed of this before purchasing the non-refundable ticket. BA "customer service" was absolutely no help on this front and merely reiterated their policy. They are NOT a premium carrier and their practices have relegated them to bargain carrier status. I will not fly BA again."
Pros: "Very limited in flight entertainment"
Cons: "There was no food provided, so no need to rate the quality of the food that was not there"
Cons: "We couldn't enter the gate area until about 30 minutes prior. There wasn't anywhere else to wait so eveyrone nded up standing around the gate. Which blocked the hall to the restrooms and ended with a lot of people standing at a store front."

Pros: "I was able to check in on an earlier flight which helped me to arrive an hour earlier."
Cons: "British Airways do not have access to a gate so always have to take a bus to airplane."
Cons: "Horrible service I had to have my flights changed completely twice."

Pros: "Breakfast was good and a surprise. Short flight so did not watch any entertainment. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Checking in at main desk was chaos. Waited in line forever only to be overcharged for my second checked bag compared to their website rate. Inefficient people manning the desks. Boarding was just as chaotic. Crew acted new/disorganized. Seats extremely hard, very little padding. Old plane."
Late to board late to depart captain gave inaccurate information
Pros: "It was a small jet but the first class section was extremely nice."
Cons: "Small jets have limited overhead space and most roller bags have to be gate checked for pickup when you exit the plane. My roller bag is small to fit under a seat, and it fit in the overhead."
Cons: "The crew was so rude"
Cons: "In flight entertainment wouldn't work despite following the instructions, so I gave up after about 45 minutes."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and crew was nice."
Cons: "Need something more substantial for food in first class on a cross-country flight."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "One attendant looked and acted,like she had just gotten up after a rough night. Never smiled, watched people put jackets and even a fast food bag in the overheads without ever saying a word."

Cons: "No wifi, drinks came in the last 5 minutes flight was 1.5 hours late"

Pros: "Normal expectations were met"
Cons: "It was fine"
Cons: "The seats were SO uncomfortable and my legs were cramped up into one position because there wasn't enough room for legs and knees."
Pros: "Landed safely and on time. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Cramped. Older plane missing USB plugs. Entertainment requires an app. Should have been cheaper for what I got which was a regular ticket for a 5'8" 160lb person."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Cold no food"
Pros: "Crew were ok Captain was informant"
Cons: "Delay Heat on plane at 98 degrees upon boarding"
Cons: "The flight and the entire process with American was just fine. What bothered me most was the rude treatment from security staff in Philadelphia. Compared to security staff overseas, the U.S. rates the lowest of the 55+ countries I've visited. It does not reflect badly on American Airlines, but it does give travelers a bad lasting impression. As an American, I'm embarrassed by their behavior."
Cons: "the usual garbage AA flights on CRJ's with poor on-time performance and frequent maintenance issues..."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "One of my pieces of luggage was not on my flight. The gate agent was difficult to understand. It was her nasal accented English that was the problem."
Cons: "Very cramped seating This was an American Airlines flight, not Alaska Air."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "AA has nine boarding groups, which queue up in two lanes. Each of the two lanes hold about 5 people, at most. This is ridiculous. It creates enormous crowds of people jockeying to be near the tiny lanes for when their number is called 5 or 10 minutes down the line. AA needs to reduce the number of boarding groups, lengthen the lanes, and provide more of them. No other airline boards this way. That's because this boarding method is stupid. Unsurprisingly, our plane took off late because they couldn't get everyone boarded in time."
Pros: "Much more room in seats than expected"
Pros: "It was great! I got an entire row to myself."
Pros: "I got here."
Cons: "Everything else. American cancelled my first flight from MSP to ORD. And when I got to Chicago, it cancelled my next flight to Nashville. The flight I managed to get on departed two hours late. There was no explanation for each of these cancellations/delays. There was virtually zero inclement weather anywhere, save for most of the country’s temperature being nearly equivalent to the surface of Neptune. And, the surly, clueless Chicago-based gate agent was the coupe de grace in my search for a reasonable explanation after which I waited impatiently for this episode to conclude. American get your act together."
Cons: "I was forced to check my carry on and pay for it. I was not charged on my way to lax or my trip to Hawaii. Sad. And person was rude"
Pros: "The flight attendant was fantastic. Very friendly, very helpful, checking on all the passengers. He even loaned his phone charger to one passenger. It was a full flight and he was working hard, but had a smile on his face the entire time. Give him a raise!"
Cons: "the airplane was absolutely freezing. It was so cold, you could actually see the air blowing (like in winter). There's no need for that. Somehow European airlines manage not to freeze out all their passengers. It was less than a two hour flight but felt like an eternity because it was so uncomfortable. Seat size - this is absolutely the smallest it can/should go. I am pretty skinny, but even I'm running out of room and the seat backs could be made a bit more comfortable. Not only is there almost no recline, but the way they are constructed - they actually push my head forward - not made for short people."
Pros: "It was on time. Nashville airport is sparkling clean with very happy and warm staff throughout the facility. As opposed to Philthydelphia the city of Unbrotherly Love."
Cons: "We boarded an hour late and then sat in the runway for ever. Flight was scheduled to arrive in Nashville at 1137p we arrived at 148a! Ridiculous"
Pros: "Most things."
Cons: "Delayed flight!"
Cons: "First hearing news of my flight being severely delayed I asked the ticket agent if I should just drive down to DFW from Lawton he reassured me that the plane would get there with time I had to make a split decision to drive down very rapidly"
Cons: "I didn't get home til 1am bc of this flight delay. A lot of the passengers were on the final leg of overseas travel, so we had a really hard time with the delays. Boarding was inefficient. Cree counted us like 6 times. Why is that necessary? Plane was old and uncomfortable."
Pros: "I changed my reservation in Hartford. Crew were extremely helpful."
Cons: "I ended up getting to my destination 6 hours after what I had planned."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The male server was great. The ice cream for dessert was magnificent."
Cons: "First class was awful- no drink service for far too long, didn't have my food order that I selected ahead of time, the female asian flight attendant was not friendly at all, the seat reclined at the back only there was nothing for your feet, the blankets were awful, and movie selection was mediocre at best."
Cons: "COULDN'T GET ON THE SECOND LEG BECAUSE DIDN'T MAKE THE FIRST LEG"
Pros: "Overall friendliness of the crew"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No entertainment. Learn from TAM in Brazil and offer entertainment via smartphone / tablet. No food service."
Pros: "Arrived on time, left on time."
Cons: "It was inconceivable to me that I could not get a seat assignment until I actually checked in at the gate. While AA offered the option of paying extra for additional legroom, if you declined the offer, you could not obtain a seat. I know that it is getting unusual to have any sort of enjoyable experience on an airline, but the lack of transparency ("group two" for boarding is actually the fifth group to enter the aircraft) is totally unnecessary."
Cons: "That i booked a flight that departed 6:20pm on Alaska Airlines and found out i was put on a red eye American Airlines flight that left at 11:50 pm. In addition did not reciveve any notification of the change. Had to leave the airport because i thought i was leaving at 6:20 pm :("
Pros: "Everything was good"
Pros: "I was welcomed and make right at home"
Cons: "Did not like having to stay overnight in Charlotte but weather can do that to a traveler."
Pros: "I liked the comfortable seats.. The crew working for American Airlines are polite and nice. From the very time to get the boarding passes and my luggage handling and all the hospitality, am really looking forward to fly more on American Airlines."
Cons: "There is not much to not like American Airlines as I don't have any bitter experiences till date and I don't wish to encounter too lol I would like more snacks beside Pretsels too and I wish to have a very good hot Fliter coffee or even green tea's during my flight ☺️"
Cons: "Seeing as this flight was cancelled and we had to wait as two elderly people until 3pm the next day to get another flight and American Airlines would not compensate in anyway. I would say that we will never fly American Airlines again nor will my family. This was not the only delay or cancellation because of American either. We spent 48 hours traveling because of delays and cancellations and still American would do nothing for us. I'm 66 and my husband is 72 (who also has had back surgery for five slipped discs) and we had to sleep on concrete floors and had very limited money to buy food. It was by far the worst experience of my life and I would encourage everyone to not travel with them."
Pros: "Service and friendliness"
Cons: "Person sitting next to me smelled awful. Several passengers asked to move because of how awful the smell was. This individual should not have been allowed to board for basic sanitation reasons."
Cons: "Delays, delays and more delays. 3 gate changes and finally on an old plane. Avoid if you can. Only good thing about it, it was bringing me home"
Pros: "Once we finally got on the flight it was great! The crew was Fabtatsic and gave tons of updates as they became available."
Cons: "The only bad thing I can say was the delay. Beyond their control but very frustrating."
Cons: "It was a 2 hour delay and they had us run to two different gates. The plane didn't take off for another half hour or so"
Cons: "Delays. Always with the delays. An hour to take off and 30 minutes to land? I changed my flight because my father is dying of cancer, you charge me 200 extra for this? These planes shouldn't be allowed to fly. There's efficiency and there's just plain uncomfortable. Too tight. Small seats."
Cons: "Time to board flight and they announced we had no pilots. They did find some within 30 minutes and went ok from there. Jeesh! So glad to get home to Nashville."
