Pros: "The food was great and the crew was very friendly."
Pros: "On time. Check in was very easy."
Cons: "They asked me to pay for my luggages. It is strange"
Pros: "It was fine - overall pleasant/nothing."
Cons: "It was fine - overall pleasant/nothing wrong, but not outstanding, either. It helps to have no one in the middle seat, but it would have been nicer to have slightly more comfortable seating, and a bit more privacy."
Pros: "The crew was excellent, the food was very good as well as the entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive, information from the cockpit was enough to let us know but not disruptive"
Cons: "Boarding was one long line that other passengers in the airport had to walk through. This was difficult for passengers with kids and those with needed special accommodations Ike wheelchairs, canes etc"
Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Boarding was difficult with poor communication, before impolite request for spot check of carry-on bag and person. Ended up being one of the last to board. Entertainment system did not work, and after 4 requests for assistance to different crew members finally gave up asking and so had no entertainment for whole of flight. The last of the crew members suggested that an alternative seat or a future flight voucher could be given, but neither of these materialized. Food mediocre, and crew polite, but some not particularly friendly."
Pros: "Good on board service"
Cons: "Again delayed"
Pros: "The crew was amazingly kind and hospitable. The captain kept us informed continually of any changes which is something that as a passenger one really appreciates."
Cons: "As always, the economy chair area are small but roomier than other airlines."

Pros: "Special GF meals care on board, friendly staff, good food and drinks"
Pros: "Never made connection so now 1 day late."
Pros: "upgrade to business class"
Cons: "the flight was delayed, so I have arrivede later and was told that I should have been there for the original time..."
Cons: "8 kilo limit on carry-on luggage. Customer service attendant issuing boarding passes was less than friendly."
Pros: "Friendly service and food"
Cons: "Older plane with no entertainment"
Cons: "I was randomly selected for a second security check at the boarding gate in Zurich airport, the security staff were unfriendly, said it was a TSA requirement even though I stated I am a United States Citizen and That I have already passed through a complete security check Point, still they placed a metal & scanning detector on my feet, hands & belt. This was a complete violation of my rights. Never have I faced a humiliating situation at any other airport. If this was a TSA requirement then everyone should be subject to a second security check."
Pros: "Good service - including snacks and drinks. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Upon boarding, the agents in the airport gave us a hard time over a bag that definitely met carry-on requirements. Almost made us check it, and then changed their mind last minute. Very unnecessary/dramatic situation, especially since we flew with that bag via carry-on multiple times (and on even smaller planes)."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, good legroom in economy, excellent meals."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth. The crew was friendly and attentive. Even though it was a short flight, we each got a piece of Swiss chocolate."
Cons: "Like most planes, there was not enough leg room."
Pros: "I am very satisfied and I will recommended it to my friendships"
Pros: "Flight crew were courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Delay in BCN for an hour"
Cons: "The line at the check in was quite long. Luckily I had only carryon"
Pros: "Service was remarkable - food far superior! Will be my airline of choice going overseas."
Cons: "Check in"
Cons: "Our luggage was left behind in Zurich after an unnecessary gate check. There were plenty of room in the overhead bins, and we purposefully bought the luggage because they were sized for bin storage."
Cons: "Everything was very good except the TV screen on my wife's seat malfunctioned after the first movie watched. The crew "tried" to fix it but nothing happened, not blaming them specifically but I don't think they were to concerned about one customer with no entertainment. After a long while it started working again. It was a long flight to not have entertainment the whole duration of the flight. Besides this little problem it was a very good flight. Crew very professional and nice."
Pros: "Snack offered was tasty"
Cons: "No USB charger in seat"
Pros: "Very accommodating"
Cons: "SWISS always turns on the air conditioning too high on intercontinental flights. It is HOT inside the cabins. The entertainment system is very outdated, small screen and old and used hand set. Claiming to be a premium airline is unfortunately very overstated if you are unlucky to catch the old business class planes. Only few have changed to the new versions (777s) - Make sure to catch those."
Cons: "Flight from Barcelona was delayed for 2 hours, so we missed the flight from Zurich to New York."
Pros: "Excellent pilot, very smooth fly and landing, good comunication, friendly , good food, nice crew,"
Cons: "A little more water, and too little nag wait in Zurich for connecting flight"
Pros: "The plane was remarkable and the service was excellent!"
Cons: "The wifi on the plane was horrible."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly, everything was on time and extremely efficient. I don't have kids but I did notice how great the flight attendants were with the kids around me. Great job! Already recommended SWISS to friends and family"
Cons: "priority luggage arrived in SFO about 30 mins after regular luggage"
Cons: "I arrived to the airport within an hour of boarding time. I wasn't told the gate to my plane until 8:30. When I arrived to the gate there were no employees to speak to and it stated boarding time was 8:35 we didn't board until 9! It was just scary and confusing for someone flying alone in another country. When all the other confused flyers asked simple questions the employees at the gate were annoyed and rude."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment."
Cons: "There is no question about check-in?? My ticket, booked through Kayak, did not state that no baggage is included. The Swiss air just said I should have picked it up from the booking and forced me to pay Euro 30, which I will claim back from Kayak. This is gross misrepresentation and on the same ticket flying a luggage was included."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and accommodating."
Cons: "My baggage never made it on my first flight due to a strike by Swiss airlines crew. The flight was delayed and we were told it was because there was less crew and it was taking some time to get our baggage on the plane. Due to the delay, I missed my connecting flight and was rescheduled for a flight the following day. When I went to get my checked bags, I was told they never made it on the plane and were indefinitely in the first city (Barcelona). I was told to file a complaint once I got home (US) and then they'd forward the bag to me. I did not receive my bags until 5 full days later, in which I had to call every single day and ask to place more request to move the bags from one city to the next. If I hadn't stayed on top of it, I surely would not have received my bags. Also, when I checked my bags in Barcelona, I had to pay an extra 75 Euros for having a second bag although the weight limit was not surpassed. The guy at the counter was really nice and didn't want to charge me but due to the strike, the policy was really strict on a one bag limit. That I understand, but I did file a complaint and request to be refunded that 75 Euros since the service that I paid for was not completed on their end until 5 days later. I'm really hoping they refund me but not gunna bet on it."
Pros: "Nice crew, good food!"
Cons: "NO INTERNET!!!"
Pros: "I liked the friendliness of the crew"
Cons: "There was no inflight entertainment of any kind."
Pros: "Plane as always clean, perfectly maintained and of decent comfort. Crew as always very friendly and very professional."
Cons: "Both my flight to Barcelona as well as my return flight were delayed significantly. And there was a delay on 3 out of my last four trips to Barcelona."
Pros: "Everything! Great Flight attendants, good food. Drinks in economy class. First class treatment in economy. Plenty of entertainment options. We were fortunate to have a very clear air on our transatlantic flight. They did not turn on the seatbelt sign except to land."
Cons: "Everything was excellent! I will be flying with them again!"
Cons: "They lost 2 pieces of luggage in Munich. We are only here on 3 day vacay and will not have our bags until same time tomorrow."

Cons: "Window seat was completely obstructed by wing!! Seat uncomfortable but sat on pillow provided which helped a lot."
Pros: "Standard German efficiency. Neither good nor bad."
Pros: "Great aircraft"
Cons: "Waiting for arrival gate"
Cons: "Weather delay caused us (and hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of other travelllers) to miss connections. Lufthansa lost our luggage, and to get rid of us, told us they would send it to the hotel we had to check into on account of the overnight delay. They never delivered the luggage, and other employees later told us over the phone that this was not going to happen. The terminal was filled with tired and frustrated travelers, and to make matters worse, the Lufthansa staff were temperamental and condescending to many. At the peak of the chaos, the Lufthansa staff went out on break, while hundreds waited in line for over 8 hours. We expected more - much more - in one of Lufthansa’s own German domestic hubs."
Pros: "Everything went off without a hitch. Love how organized Lufthansa is."
Pros: "family line at check in made boarding a breeze."
Cons: "Two hours to unload my luggage!"
Pros: "Could not get skybridge to operate so that we could disembark. United airlines."

Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above."

Pros: "Comfortable, timely and pleasant overall."
Pros: "Timing was on schedule"
Cons: "I had to pay 142 euros for my bags. I'm united Global and never have to pay for my bags. I don't mind a fee, but that was ridiculous!"
Pros: "more than 2 hours spent in the plane which was the reason for waiting at the airport taxi and extra pay."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "everthing was good!"
Cons: "Systems were down. And it was chaos getting the boarding passes. Nothing was communicated to us until over an hour waiting in line. My daughter was miserable waiting as everyone passed by us, bumping into her and not apologizing."

Pros: "Coffee was excellent"
Pros: "terrible earphone, could listen only on one ear."

Pros: "honestly? nothing."
Cons: "3 hours late. it was operated by united airlines, it was the first and last time that I flew them, worst of the worst!"

Pros: "Crew was ok, But seats so tight, Economy size seats fitted in Business Class and so much wastage of space around seat, very little quantity and quality of food available.The flights to Delhi and Amritsar has more than 60 % Punjab Travelers and there is not even a single movie in Punjabi movie. Poor."
Cons: "Economy size seats fitted in Business Class and so much wastage of space around seat, very little quantity and quality of food available.The flights to Delhi and Amritsar has more than 60 % Punjab Travelers and there is not even a single movie in Punjabi, Please learn from Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Departed and arrived on time"
Cons: "Stop the sardine can treatment of passangers"
Pros: "Crew was great and welcoming"
Cons: "Some features on screen did not work, also seat handle wasnt possible to lower"
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent; seat was about what you would expect in economy; the boarding process was extremely confusing"
Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "Endless waiting and lost luggage. Excuse was unpredicted weather conditions. It was snowing in Finland so they had to clear the Ice from the planes.. Snowing in Finland? How uncommon is that during December? I actually think most of this is poor ground handling In Helsinki."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and polite, food was good"
Cons: "Would have preferred to watch one comedy movie. The crazy rich Asians was on a lighter side of a movie but I had seen that one already."
Pros: "Seat, new plane, service"
Cons: "Amenity Kit could be improved, food was very good but could add more appetizer choices."
Cons: "Missed my connecting flight from Helsinki to Miami because the flight from New Delhi, India was delayed by more than 4 hours."
Pros: "Plenty of leg room, and I got an empty seat next to me! Food was served on time (an hour into the flight, and about two hours from the destination). The options were decent particularly the caserole in terms of portions. Plenty of overheard compartment space, even with a nearly full flight."
Cons: "The arm rest between seats doesn't raise to the full upright position, only one-half way. The TV needed to be reset by the purser due to it being stuck on kiddie mode. If you're a snacker, bring food."
Pros: "Crew is very nice and helpful. Food is just fine."
Cons: "Seats are too close and not enough space for my legs. I am 187 (6'2"). No outlets for phone charging."
Pros: "The airport it's very nice and clean.."
Pros: "The original flight was canceled, the stroller was taken away when boarded the airplane, and not seen until final destination. With a 1-year-old and 2 and a half year old, this was the worst ever flight. Take us 35 hours total travel time to get home with 2 small kids, it is a nightmare."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled and changed to 2 stops from one. We purchased a 1 stop flight because of the kids. In mid season a week before departure, we were notified about the change and it was impossible to get a same priced ticket so close to departure. We bought insurance but even with that was impossible. Looks like a scam. Very upsetting, messed up the whole thing."
Cons: "On a 4 hour flight, food had to be purchased on board or (as I later learned) purchased and ordered in advance and this option was not offered to me in check in process."
Pros: "Despite leaving 5 hours late we arrived only 3.5 hours late so cheers to the pilot."
Cons: "Flight from dublin was delayed about an hour. Flight from Helsinki to Chicago was delayed almost 5 hours and all they gave us were 8 euro in vouchers which isn't even enough to eat at the airport. Communication on delays was poor and staff was not helpful."
Pros: "I'm so happy to be able to travel with my small dog in cabin. I've travelled from Miami to Helsinki and back with a dog at least 30 times in the last 16 years. The service has always been very good. I choose the airline always based on what's best for my dog."
Cons: "the flight was 2 hours delayed."
Pros: "We had a very reasonable fare that included two meals a glass of wine and movies. We weren't expecting any thing more than a plane ride. Thank you FinnAir."
Cons: "I ended up sitting in the last row although arrived at the airport early, but was placed on standby."
Pros: "The option of having a direct flight between Helsinki and Miami. The plane was clean and the seats comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was 1 1/2 hrs late!!!! This seems to be a regular pattern from what I understand from others who have travelled the same itinerary. Not good if this becomes your reputation. The crew was not very attentive during good service. It was more of a routine / rush job rather than making sure that everybody was served and got what they needed ( had to ask for my dinner as my row was skipped and was never offered coffee before landing). The crew seemed rather young and inexperienced. The food was below average!!!! Especially the chicken patty before landing - seriously!!!!! Why not include a little bit of Finnish / Scandinavian cuisine to emphasize the Finnair brand!!! Entertainment was also below average. There needs to be more variety - especially for the TV selection, which had only 2 options!!! No music and no games?? Also, it would be nice to have access to a flight map. Too few accessible WCs"
Pros: "direct flight from Helsinki to Miami was good"
Cons: "Only few movies, announcements were very quiet, the pilot barely spoke English, flight was 2.5 hours late."
Cons: "There was no reason given why the flight left Helsinki 35 minutes from schedule. Boarding aircraft seem to take a longer time than usual for a full flight. The flight crew during boarding in economy didn't have the push needed to get everyone seated in an efficient manner. The tv screen does not move out far enough to view when the person in front has their seat all the way back. Selection is limited compared to the non stop flight previous from Miami to Helsinki. There isn't an option to view the flight details in flight which is interesting to some passengers. At least have the option."
Cons: "Food, no option asked just served from Helsinki to Miami. Entertainment system was not working and later had only limited options."
Pros: "Good food, two hot meals."
Cons: "Unfortunately the flight was done by HiFly , not Finnair. Boarding took almost two hours, the whole flight crew behaved is if they were doing everybody a favor by being there. Entertainment options included like 6 movies and 2 tv shows, only 2 movies were more or less new, not much for a 10.30 hour flight. We really enjoyed our experience on the outbound flight with Finnair and were looking forward to this flight also, but Finnair didn't service this flight."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and accomodating. The food service for the long international flight was better than I expected."
Cons: "Movie entertainment options were not consistent from plane to plane. On the arriving flight, the plane had an impressive offering of movies and tv shows for passenger viewing during flight, however, on the return flight, there was much less available."
Pros: "Upgrade to business class was fantastic given my then physical condition. Wheelchair assistance to and from airplane smooth and courteous, food and all of service on board fantastic."
Cons: "Plane too old for such a long flight"
Pros: "Food and crew"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The entertainment system is terribly slow and hard to work with, food was awful. Next time I will bring my own."
Pros: "The crew were trying to help and accommodate the bad situation."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online 24 hours ahead. When called Finnair on the phone, they couldn't check us in, told us we have to check in at counter, by then all good seats were taken and I couldn't sit next to my husband, and this is our honeymoon trip. It's a full flight and All upgrades were booked by then so couldn't even upgrade to business class. Requested a gluten free meal, no crew can figure out it that meal was on board (not in system nor on paper list), so at the end no food for me. I have been dying BA for last five years and this had to be the worst BA flight I have taken, absolute chaos at the check in counter and no organization. One BA counter agent Alexa tried to help but it is just too late. I expected more from BA."
Pros: "The flight attendant ruined my trip and experience3 with this airline."
Cons: "Twice I was passed up and overlooked for food and drink when they were being provided to all. The attendant said i needed to speak up if i wanted something and i pointed out i did and he said he would get me on the way back but never came back until he was picking up the empties. He said everyone else seemed to get served what was my problem and I pointed out the girl next to me was also skipped to which he turned around and never walked down my aisle again. Also, the lack of wiFi on this leg was a disappointment as it was available on the trip to Barcelona. That goes a long way to making the long trip more enjoyable."
Pros: "The crew members were very helpful and kind. Seats are okay. The music selection was pretty good."
Cons: "If you are not planning to sleep, bring your own book, tablet and earbuds! The airplane has no individual screens for entertainment, only tiny drop-down screens."
Pros: "Empty seat next to me! Excellent crew services! Clean bathrooms!"
Pros: "Punctual and very good service from friendly crew"
Cons: "They don't give you options about what kind of food you prefer like carne / pasta , there is just one menu option. Any kind of snack between the two meals in a 11 hours flight. If you get hungry you will have to buy snacks on board . No legroom"
Pros: "The options for music and movies were good, but the poor service provided, at check-in and on board, outweighed any benefit we received from the entertainment."
Cons: "The crew at Barcelona Airport, especially "Javier" (he refused to give his last name or show his badge - he had it turned around) was very rude and unhelpful. We had to go to another desk person to help us who was a bit more polite. The Finnair Customer Service telephone service was completely unhelpful even though this was booked as a Finnair Flight. The crew on board was ok, at best. The food was the poorest we had in both flights we took (we travelled from Barcelona to JFK, New York, and from JFK to YVR, Vancouver). We were most pleased with our flight from New York to Vancouver, with Cathay Pacific, who, by comparison, had very helpful and pleasant staff both at the JFK Airport and on board."
Pros: "On time, good movies, good service."
Pros: "customer service was attentive smart yet caring."
Cons: "Passengers changing seats around."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Cons: "Service onboard was terrible. Very rarely saw the crew, constantly had to go up and and ask for a drink. 11 hour flight only offered drinks with the meal service..."
Pros: "geting off"
Cons: "To cramped so I will go back to Delta"
Pros: "The flight was on time and all went as planned"
Cons: "The in flight service was average"
Pros: "The only thing I liked was the ice cream that was served on the flight. And the Kerry Gold butter."
Cons: "What didn't I like? I didn't like that I bought a ticket from Finnair, got emails from Finnair, for some reason couldn't check in early on the Finnair website, arrived at the airport, waited in the absurdly long check-in line for Finnair only to find out that they had no record of me and I wasn't flying Finnair. Actually, I was on an American Airlines flight."
Pros: "The staff was very nice and attentive. Boarding was timely and flight landed 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Long flight with no screens on the back of the seats with personal entertainment options. Furthermore, I had a middle seat and my shoulders kept knocking into my neighbors. Worst of all, my seat didn't incline as far as the people on either side of me. Sleeping is already hard on a plane, and this made it way worse...not to mention my knees were jammed into the seat in front of me the whole time."
Pros: "Crew politeness"
Cons: "Food is only average and not enough good movies to watch"
Pros: "Is old aircraft. Few tv in all the airplane. My system didn't work"
Cons: "I will not fly again with this American airline"
Cons: "I booked this trip thinking it was with a European carrier - I had specifically wanted to avoid an American carrier. I was unable to confirm my flight online and had to ring because at NO POINT was I sent info that it was AA and not Finnair. I was charge almost $60 for this service because I did not have the right references sent with my confirmation email. T he seats were cramped and uncomfortable, I was unable to pick my seat on any flight and despite my request could not change it. Boarding at Chicago was a farce, none of the ground crew seemed to be in charge and we barely started boarding with 20 mins to takeoff. Needless to say the flight left late and we had to wait to take off, and of course had to wait to land in London."
Pros: "The crew went above and beyond to cater to everyone during this long long flight, they were really sweet, moving people around for more comfort if needed. Hadn't seen such a caring crew in a long time. Thank you to the Miami based crew, they were amazing !"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment....AA NEEDS to get individual screens in economy."
Cons: "The layover was exhausting & getting to other gate was too stressful. Changing planes should be simplified."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "When the refreshment cart passed down the aisle, the attendants neither articulated clearly what was available, nor did they even slow down as they hurried down the aisle to allow passengers to request items."
Pros: "Nice staff."
Pros: "See above, ditto."
Cons: "No tv at all"
Cons: "Wasn’t aware of the baggage fee"
Pros: "Aircraft ok never fly them"
Cons: "Had to pay for everything no included drinks or pretzels"
Pros: "I like everything."
Pros: "Short and comfy."
Cons: "Really? The only refreshments had to be purchased?"
Cons: "Flew into 1 concourse a few minutes late had to go through security checks and run to make boarding in another concourse. No place to use the restroom along the way, I will avoid Heathrow at all costs when traveling in the future."
Pros: "As a tall person, I wish there were better guidelines for passengers in front of you asking permission to fully recline, but otherwise right on time."
Cons: "No Wi-Fi."
Pros: "All great!"
Pros: "Nothing about wheelchairs"
Cons: "When arrived they don't take wheelchairs"

She should have explained the reason for this rather than just walking up to people and asking to see their boarding passes since this doesn't usually happen. She didn't explain why she was doing it until AFTER some of us refused. She explained it was for added security requirements (random checks) because we were travelling to the US."

Pros: "Clean airplane."
Cons: "Flight staff, food on board"
Pros: "I flew business class for this trip and loved the leg room!! Having frequently flown coach class on these overseas flights, I have a hard time folding my long legs into the cramped seats and arriving rested and in good humor. I can say unequivocally that the flight attendants give you much more personalized attention in business class. I didn't have to, but I preordered my meals and that info was registered, and that way I got what I wanted. I also made use of the Admirals Clubs during layovers."

Cons: "Poor service by air hostess in the flight. Didn’t give the right food. Ignored when I asked for orange juice."

Pros: "everything was on par to most travels until we got to miami."
Cons: "they lost a container of bags for over 2 hours!! i was supposed to have a 6-hour layover (i had 2 separate tickets) and had a spa appt at the ritz i had to cancel and pay for because you couldn't locate a container of bags for 2-hours. i feel bad for people with a connecting flight who didn't get home with their luggage. ruined the homecoming."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and accommodating to handling my wheelchair and helping me to my seat most uncomfortable seats I have ever used. My neck was sore before we even took off."
Pros: "The crew was terriffic"
Cons: "seats are tiny, but that's what I paid for."
Pros: "Once we got on the plane, it was fine."
Cons: "Flight was late, which we were told was because of a crew shortage. It was hard to get information at the Barcelona airport as to how late the flight would be or why it was late."
Cons: "It was not explained to us why my wife was pulled out of the line for questioning. They did not introduce themselves or anything."
Cons: "I paid premium price for comfort and to be treated at least nice! In the business cabinet! Other than the seat which by the way mine was broken so I couldn't get to the position I'm the most comfortable, everything else I could have gotten in the economy seat. Crew was not welcoming, the had big attitudes as they were doing me favors! Which they are not! And they didn't check at me at all. Fly got delayed more than 2 hours didn't offer more drinks or snacks! Food was horrible so I was very hungry since I couldn't eat it! And the snacks were available at the back much later but when I went to check it out almost everything was gone! Other airlines come to offer you snacks! AA did not and the make me feel like an intruder when I went to check the empty snacks trays! Only the package food was still available. Horrible service, mean big headed crew! It's is simple! Be nice and make an effort! Especially for the people that actually is there paying the premium!"
Pros: "Nice Jet."
Cons: "During boarding, we were pulled out of the line. The attendant that diverted us did not explain why he diverted us. Our boarding passes were printed by our hotel as were many others that we saw. We went to a desk where another individual started asking question about our life and where we were going. Still, no one thought it was necessary to explain what part of the process or what exactly is going on. The man that diverted us, I'll bet, does not have reasons or any idea why he diverted us. I hate to think that he did it because we were Black Americans."
Cons: "American Airlines was late! There was no indication that the flight was late until it was time to board, then they indicated it would be 25 minutes late, which actually turned into 50 minutes until the plane arrived. It had to be cleaned and prepared for our flight, which then took off over 1 1/2 hours late. Many passengers missed their connecting flights and American Airlines was no help... they directed people to the Miami Airport Crew. American Airlines stated that the plane was late due to air traffic control issues, but in reality the plane hadn't even arrived yet. I felt like I was lied to! Shame on American Airlines! I will never fly with this company by choice!"

Cons: "the food was awful and the crew seemed stressed out and not flexible at all."

Cons: "Our first flight had an hour and a half delay. Missed our connecting flight. Had to wait two hours for a later flight that was then delayed another hour and a half. Absolutely horrific and inconvenient."

Cons: "Food is horrible Change seats without notice"
Pros: "Business class comfort was a huge difference! The seat, space entertainment was great."
Cons: "Food not great. Priority line not separate for boarding. If you don't board right away when first called, you get stuck behind everyone else boarding. Those that have higher boarding numbers stand around blocking the line and no announcement ever made to remain away from line."
Cons: "I booked the flight with Kayak and it showed the airline as Finnair, the flight was actually with American, no complains about it. The issue was that Kayak did not update me with the Flight number for American Airlines and kept sending me information about the flight with Finnair which was not going to actually take place. I had to actually call American and spend time with a Representative providing all the data to be able to get my American Airlines flight booking code so I could check in online. American as always was great! Shame on Kayak!"
Cons: "This leg of my flight was closed out on me!"

Pros: "found out upon boarding that my $97 ticket was for a business class seat. Awesome"
Cons: "They didn't let him to aboard, because of a mistake on the name. I called to ask for help to fix the name and the person who answer me asked me for a numeric code and I didn't know where to find it. He was very rude, didn't help at lot guiding me where I can find it, but instead he said " You have to call back when you find it" I asked him that I couldn't find it and he almost yelled at me saying DID YOU GOT a RESERVATION OR NOT?. I never found the numeric code he asked for. So I called again and fortunately somebody else answer my call and she was a litTle more helpful and didn't made me waste my time with a numeric code. She asked me for the Trip ID # and I found it right away. VERY DISAPPOINTING. I LOST 700 DOLLARS. I HAD TO BUY ANOTHER PLAIN TICKET!!!!!"
Pros: "One crew member was very funny and helpful which unfortunately we forgot his name but he looks like Oscar from the Office if that helps. He was awesome! And the food was pretty good too."
Cons: "James. One of the crew members on our flight he was extremely rude and had no interest in helping you with putting your carry on away and if you have to put any effort he automatically says "you have to check this in" luckily my boyfriend got up and arrange the baggages easily and done. James was obnoxious, rude, and very unfriendly. The entertainment was absolutely terrible. It was a 10 hour flight the movie choices were slim to none. When I took a flight from New York to China and rode United Airlines we had every movie selection imaginable."
Cons: "The rental car they have different than show price is diferentente u pay more than kayak ofert to hight price they I was. Not happy you should be check that they said the insurance u offered is not valid in el salvador"
Pros: "All fly attendants. DId a very good job"
Cons: "The little flat tv was not working properly. The plain is too old."
Pros: "was on time"
Cons: "In business class, was supposed to be herringbone arrangement which are large seats and comfortable. I am not sure if they switches planes since my reservation, but the seating arrangements were different. They shuffled everyone up and no one was sitting next to their spouses/family. Also, the seats are horrific to lay on, that its a joke. Just sitting reclined and almost upright was better than trying to recline them. I don't like complaining about creature comforts, but when you pay extra like this and you think your getting one thing a don't, they should at elast acknowledge it."
Pros: "Seats are too close together. We can hardly move, backward or forward."
Pros: "The service and the time of things done."
