Pros: "Really easy boarding and flight. Great in flight entertainment options."

Pros: "Travel time was great"

Pros: "Free checked bag. Comfy seats back in row 27."

Cons: "The chairs can be more comfortable."

Pros: "The window seat of this plane is so closely placed to the window that you can hardly sit straight up and down. Food is non existent and one drink offered in 4.5 hours is bad service"

Cons: "Power outlet cover was busted. But it worked."

Pros: "I liked the wide and spacious seating."
Cons: "Due to the planes running late we had to board the plane without the plane being cleaned beforehand. I had to ask a stewardess to wipe down the crumbs and spilt coffee on my seat before I could sit down. It was REALLY disgusting!!! There was crumbs all over the seats, Seatbelts and floor."

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Good entertainment selection"
Cons: "Most was as expected."

Cons: "I didn’t like the fact I had to wait 5 and a half hours in the airport and not being compensated by the airline, who for some reason penalize anyone of their passagers if they are late or want to change a flight. I was also late for a meeting"

Cons: "Had a mechanical problem and took us 30 minutes to take off"

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "entertainment monitor for my seat did not work at all. also on all flights: I was not aware one needed one's own headphones to hear entertainment."

Cons: "My flight was delayed an hour plus and I missed my rental car reservation. So now I'm stuck wih no car."

Cons: "Cramped seating"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought travel insurance as I do with any trip. I have a complicated family emergency that forced me to call off the trip. Being that I bought trip insurance, I felt good. Well turns out they make you jump through so many hoops that your travel insurance fee is useless. I sent a letter to Allianz (the company that handles the travel insurance) and blasted them for their insensitivity in a difficult time. Going forward, I will not be purchasing travel insurance in the future. It may sound irrational but if you think about it, travel insurance is the tax on gullible people. You hear travel insurance and one assumes that if you spend the extra money on the insurance and something comes up, you can at least get much of your money back. Don't count on it! It's a 1/1000 chance they will do the right thing so the odds are not in people's favor. If you want to be smart, use the money you would have spent on travel insurance on some pre flight cocktails at the airport bar. Air travel is hellish enough without scams like Allianz!"

Cons: "Leg room/space BA offers is calculated for short and small body frame passengers and it is on not acceptable. It feels like cattle Wagon. BA should show consideration for real passengers not some sort of statistical average. I am 6'4" and sitting in your plane's cabin inflicts hours of body pain. The space given is sufficient for children and teenagers. Also sitting in the hot cabin for extended amount of time is extremely uncomfortable. Why there is no cooling and proper air ventilation right from the beginning?"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled"

Pros: "the plane was very new and in excellent condition"

Pros: "Full can of tomato juice, head rests on the seat, relatively roomy seats and happy attendants."

Cons: "The fact that we didn't know we were supposed to go to American Airlines to acquire our boarding pass. A heads up would've been appreciated."

Pros: "Love these Non-stop to Austin even though they are always full. Thanks for this luxury of non having to transfer in Dallas."
Cons: "The down side is that these planes are smaller so we didn't have any entertainment and therefore no place to charge digital devices. There is however, wifi to purchase."

Cons: "Delayed waiting to unload fuel, then delayed again after they broke the tow-bar and had to inspect the nose gear. Hot cabin while waiting."

Pros: "Everything was timely, courteous & pleasant. The aircraft was very clean."

Cons: "Was very stuffy and hot. Plane never cooled down."

Cons: "He flight was extremely cold and they did not have any blankets. Very uncomfortable."

Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours"

Pros: "I liked the 2 x 2 seating arrangement. Leg room was adequate."

Pros: "I got these flights for dj jobs I had under a us p2 visa. My original flight to dallas was delayed from 12:56 to 8pm which would of landed me in dallas at 2:21am but the club Fat Rabbit closes at 2am Which in fact was a 1300 (US dollar) loss. I re booked my ticket to Austin from Vancouver this morning because the only reason to go dallas was my job. Was supposed to fly in have dinner play music get back on the plane n go Austin but going to dallas was irrelevant and a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "The fact I lost 1300.00 us has pissed me off I'm contacting AA about this I have my visa papers n contracts to show proof if not action is taken i will be contacting a lawyer"

Pros: "once i was allowed to board the flight attendants were kind and apologetic"
Cons: "they overbooked the flight. when I asked for clarification about what I should expect, people at the gate were rude for without provocation. They told me I had no seat and were unapologetic about their mistake. when they, at the last minute, said there was room, they assigned me a seat that was already taken."

Pros: "Cookies are delicious"
Cons: "I hate that United doesn’t let you get a boarding pass early if you don’t pay for for a bag. Hell, even Frontier lets you check in early. There was no one at the ticket counter till an hour before check in so I had to wait around outside security till I could get a boarding pass. It’s bullshit"

Cons: "Delayed 2 hours"

Cons: "The upgrade standby list was never cleared. My production assistant was number 1 in line for an upgrade and didn’t get it because someone at DEN forgot to do their job."

Pros: "Sadly, I am unable to find anything positive to say, aside from one customer service agent at LAX of the 7 I dealt with"
