Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Appreciate the communication from pilot when on tarmac"

Pros: "the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "honesty. 29 minute flight took 3 hours. first they blamed it on waiting for luggage, then they likely realized there were no connecting fllights, so that excuse didn't work, then they were 'closing the cargo doors' for 45 minutes, then they had to de-ice as the plane had now sat for 4 hours instead of 45 minutes, had it left on time."
Cons: "The plain from LGA had to return to the gate for maintenance, it made to ROC almost on time."

Cons: "Customs when we arrived in MPLS. Around 300 people get off the plane and they have 1 TSA agent checking passports. Terrible staffing and management on their part. Pretty sad!"

Cons: "Have all Minneapolis passengers go direct from Amsterdam to Minneapolis"
Pros: "Wine included with meal no extra charge. Thanks"
Cons: "More comfortable seats in main cabin"
Pros: "Crew had pleasant personalities.. not stoic annoyed faces"

Cons: "I fly regular this was an excellent flight"
Pros: "The crew were good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed taking off. The crew tried to make it up but it was 90 minutes late in the end - I almost missed a connection. Seats were ok."
Pros: "The flight was fine"
Cons: "I had twenty minutes to make my connecting flight after my first flight was late to leave. I barely made my connecting flight and my luggage didn’t. It’s very inconvenient to arrive to my destination without clean clothes or a tooth brush."
Pros: "Staff tried to be helpful"
Cons: "Silly series of events. Maintenance problem before flight left previous city, got to us and we boarded only to deplane for more repairs. Ended up with another plane, five hours later. For a 44 min flight. Would’ve been easier to drive!"

Pros: "Loved how there was food to purchase on this flight. Great from having to run from one flight to the next."
Pros: "Ended up with earlyish boarding and exit row legroom."
Cons: "Online check-in was an ultimately unsuccessful confusing nightmare. Having either a codeshare flight or a passenger with a new passport would probably have been enough to break the online check-in system, and we had both. Straightened out in the airport, but required waiting in a long line where late arrivals for flights an bhour before ours were given priority. Frustrating not to have a seat assignment until boarding had already begin (would have gone SWA if we wanted that mess)."
Pros: "The crew was nice. The cabin very clean. Flight very comfortable"
Cons: "The landing was a little rough"
Pros: "Short trip"
Cons: "Boarding process. Paying to check bag when people with roll-on bags were allowed to check them at the gate for free."
Cons: "My seat was in the last row on an MD88 where the engines are in the tail fin. Felt like I had a washing machine with a bag of rocks in it next to my head the whole flight. The intercom system also had a gnarly hum/screech when the attendants we're talking so you could barely hear them."
Pros: "We landed earlier than expected"
Cons: "Bathroom was very smelly"
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Enhanced security procedures are onerous and caused the flight to be delayed 20+ minutes. Too many TSA staff at PLN doing too many things horribly inefficiently. Extra precautions (testing a Ziploc bag of cookies and several chocolate bars for explosive materials) did not make me feel safer or less inconvenienced by the theatrics of security."
Pros: "Being on time."
Cons: "3 hrs delay My first fly was cancell Atl- Mty So ,they booking me next fly atl-Qro I have to stay weathing 9 hrs and just water and cookies"

Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."
Pros: "The help desk personnel was friendly."
Cons: "Due to my first flight being late I missed my second flight. Delta booked me on a flight that was departing 5 hours later instead of the next flight. I had to go and ask to be was put on the stand by list for a sooner flight but not given any priority over the other standby's even though it was Delta's fault that my original flight was late."
Pros: "New equipment"
Cons: "Late departure"
Pros: "friendly flight crew"
Pros: "On a one hour trip no much to say, understandably no food or bererage service. Got me from here to there quickly. thanks You!"
Cons: "What I didn't like was two idiots behind me that talked loudly for the whole flight and it being a late flight it would have been good to catch a nap. Nothing to do with the flight but really they talked for the whole time they were sitting across the aisle from each other."
Pros: "Orderly boarding process."
Cons: "Overweight people being seated int he middle seat and sticking their elbows over both arm rests while comfortably sleeping."
Cons: "Your crew didn't smile. They didn't seem very happy. The food was ok, but different from normal American cuisine. I didn't appreciate the crew's comments to some of my fellow passengers about how they we wouldn't eat the food. I would have liked to have been offered more to drink. Additionally I'm glad the crew is fond of one another, but they were loud and distracting. They were nicer to one another than the people flying. I didn't like being barked at and being given confusing directions regarding exiting the plane. Overall I wasn't impressed and would prefer to not fly with your airline again."
Pros: "Safety of aircraft"
Cons: "Parents called as soon as the delayed flight caused the young teen to miss her flight, Lufthansa operator verifies only by phone that young teen had a seat in the next flight, UNTRUE! She was ignored at counter, mr. M. Meindle told her to step aside and it was not “worth arguing”! The people she sought direction from, are the ones that left her confused and ignored. Shame on them"
Pros: "Leg room"
Pros: "Crew were very good and helpful. Efficient and very helpful."
Cons: "It looks like Lufthansa has decided to make business class more like "Premium Economy" with lie flat seats. 1) Food was very average with very little selection. 2) Dessert was a joke - other airlines have ice cream sundaes 3) NO HANDICAP BATHROOM. Must be illegal. FAA require Disability access by Disabilities Act. 4) Amenities kit - worst I have seen in all the airlines I have traveled. 5) Snack bar - No selection, just small chocolate, water and orange juice. Even economy planes like Jet Blue have better selection. German people are getting used to mediocrity and I am surprised. World class airline with cheap customer side product. Don't cut costs on things that customers see, touch and eat. To add to that, my mother in law is handicapped. When transferring her to the gate, they took her in a bus and did not strap the wheel chairs next to her chair. All of them fell on her - YES! THEY ALL FELL FROM A HEIGHT ON A HANDICAPPED PERSON WHO HAS ARTHRITIS AND IN PAIN ALL THE TIME. Damaged her knee joints. This is why we travel business class - and they hurt her more than if we took her our selves."
Pros: "Flight arrived early."
Cons: "Last two transatlantic flights have been hot. What happened to a nice cool flight and using the blanket if you are cold?"
Pros: "1.5 hour flight, on time and all that one should expect from a good airline."
Cons: "Flew to Grand Rapids turned around to Chicago and then flew back to Grand Rapids"
Pros: "After the first flight on the incredible new plane, this was a disappointment. Plane seemed old and dilapidated."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Actual flight, staff, food, beverages."
Cons: "Altho I checked in on line in advance, i was unable to print my boarding pass . Lufthansa very little space for check in & luggage at Charles de Gaule and staff advised me to arrive at 4am for 7:45am departure so I could stand in line to get boarding pass and deposit luggage. I did so. Wait was not too long. Security was fast by comparison."
Pros: "It's not only pilot/auto-pilot or only weather dependent for sure, but ride was extremely smooth. landing was fantastic. Entertainment options were great. Crew was friendly and attentive. Sucks for LH, but I had to one sitting next to me on the 8-hour flight! no crying babies, no snoring. yiey!"
Cons: "Maybe US is ahead, but my experience with 2 terminals at Hanover and Frankfurt was that information exchange isn't good. Gate number was available at the last hour or so, which then got changed. Not just this flight. many flocks of people were running around to find their new gate... also as I mentioned climbing several stories of stairs with carry-on isn't fun! Not on this flight, but on my initial departure from US to FRA, monitors said go to Gate B. I got in line for Gate B as there was some security check, then we were told there was another B?!@ We had to go down and take the bus for that...written.. No where!"
Pros: "Had ridiculously long bus ride from terminal to plane. Plane was parked on the outer reaches of the airport. This happens far too often on Lufthansa when connecting in Franfort. Build more gates!!"
Cons: "Business clsss sweats on A321 were coach seats with the center seat left empty. Not sir it is worth the higher fare."
Pros: "Nothing this was a nightmare."
Cons: "We missed our connected flight because or flight was delayed... this does not make any sense. If the flight is delayed, there should be proper high priority check in and bus transport implemented so we arrive at our gate on time. Me and the 2 other passengers had zero chance to arrive on time and were at a loss of breath. And i paid for my selected seats to which i am asking for a refund because what happened was unacceptable. When we addressed our concern, the lufthansa employee told us that u cannot have buses for all the passengers in a situation of a delay.... unacceptable.... how is this the client's fault to miss a flight due to a delay?"
Pros: "Loaded plane from both ends, giving fast boarding time."
Cons: "Limited entertainment on this short flight."
Pros: "Loved the snack choice"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "So because of tge traffic and snow i got at the airport 25 min before the departure of my flight...but when i explained my situation every employee tried their best to help me in getting on the plane, by even opening the gate for me!! They were very helpfull, fast and efficient. Thanks to their kindness and efficiency i was able to get on the plane and see my family at home. I am verry thankfull to all the staff for it!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Because my first flight took off late, my luggage didn't make it on this flight. It was not waiting for me at customs and I didn't get it until several days later."
Cons: "No difference between Business class and main cabin."
Pros: "It was ok"
Pros: "The crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Fro dinner the quanty was very little. I weigh barely over 100 lbs, and l don't eat very much. Still even for me there wasn't enough, so I got hungry after a few hours. For breakfast the egg was rubbery. It was disappointing."
Pros: "Best part: Getting off the plane and swearing never to fly with Lufthansa again."
Cons: "Flying to Munich- flight was cancelled. Had to rebook on United for the following day. Arrived almost 2 days late (the original was direct, the United had layovers) and missed a planned trip to Neuschwanstein castle. Flying from Munich- The entertainment screen was broken, completely unusable. After a hard reset by the flight attendant several times... Still broken. She said she thought it would fix itself once we were at cruising altitude. Nope. Notified the flight attendant who said vaguely "I'll see what I can do..." Never came back to check, never got offered any sort of compensation (even something like a free mixed drink would have been nice), offer to move seats, nothing. So- ten hours with no entertainment/nothing to watch, just a malfunctioning screen. Food was mediocre. We boarded late, and left almost 1 hour late because they had to wait for an employee (who was not working, just getting a ride back) to board. Literally there and back with Lufthansa was a fiasco. On top of it, we have been back for 3 weeks and are still waiting to hear back from Lufthansa customer service. Apparently they only communicate by email with complaints. Not over the phone. So after repeated emails, just radio silence. Terrible airline."
Pros: "Only the fact that I got lucky with a exit seat with leg room. That's it."
Cons: "There was no update on the status of our connecting flight. The pilot gave an update of other flights except for ours but it caused a bit of confusion. Some people even had to missed there flights altogether! Lufthansa, from the 4 times I have flown with them always seems to be late with no sense of urgency. Ultimately after arriving in Venice, I get an email that my bags did not make it, yet I was told by the boarding agent that the plane was still loading our bags."
Pros: "Nice staff...."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Good space between seats"
Cons: "Old and loud plane, especially loud and shaky on taking off"
Pros: "Lufthansa is by far the best airline. All crew members were very friendly and attentive. Food was also great."

Pros: "My first flight overseas was wonderful. Almost never felt any turbulence and the crew was so friendly and courteous."
Cons: "Cramped seats in economy. Next time we'll definitely upgrade for more leg room."
Pros: "Main issue was the food was not as expected, it was a problem with kids food. Entertainment was also with No update movies, more of them classic or old."

Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic"

Cons: "We had to take a bus from the gate to the plane, it took forever to pick us up, and then drove so far getting to the plane, we felt like we must be driving all the way to Venice!"
Pros: "everything except the fact that no explanation was given why the plane was delayed by an hour and a half"
Cons: "Food was not very good for a few euros mote per passenger food could improve a lot"
Pros: "Service was great , flight attendant very courteous"
Pros: "Short flight"
Pros: "All was very proffessional"
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and attentive."
Cons: "In Boston, the boarding process was worst I have seen of any airlines and terribly organized. Given it was 747 flight, the boarding took over an hour and 50 min behind scheduled start time. The crew did not board until after the scheduled boarding time. No crowd control or baggage control announcements. compounded with traffic on the runway"
Pros: "Lots os space, food was delicious, the movie selection was superb, and I enjoyed every second of my international flight."
Cons: "Day before the flight, Me and my husband did the online checkin as soon we got the email to ensure that our seats are together. At Milan airport, we verified our seat numbers again with the staff to make sure that my seat( which was assigned by Lufhtansa itself) is still the same and is Window seat. She checked and confirmed at the airport that my seat is window seat and there won't be any changes. At Frankfurt airport, while we were ready to board the flight, we were told that the system had assigned my seat to someone else even though i had the seat number printed in my ticket and verified it the same morning at Milan airport too. The Lufthansa staff member M.Hoy ( M.Ahoy) was not at all helpful to resolve the issue. After requesting him to give me another window seat or resolve this system issue, he behaved in a very disrespectful way. Even though it was airlines mistake in reshuffling my seat at the very last moment of boarding the light, he was not at all helpful and spoke to us in a very rude way. I am a regular flyer with Lufthansa/United flights and this was a very horrible experience. I am very disappointed."
Pros: "Crew on the plane was helpful getting us to our seats."
Cons: "Flight from Florence was delayed 20 minutes, which resulted in a much shorter layover. We needed to run from one end of the Frankfort airport to the other to make the flight. We are over 60 and just made the flight."

Pros: "Everything is great. The airplane, staff, and their terminal at the airport"

Cons: "Stewardesses gave attention to other passengers and ignored me"
Cons: "There was no amenities pack given in Premium economy. The food was ok. It would have been nice to have been offered another bread roll. Seat comfort was fine, but I kept getting hit by the separating curtain as the flight attendants went back and forth from economy."
Pros: "The crew was astounding"
Pros: "The crew was perfect"
Cons: "No wi fi on the plane."
Cons: "Air France’s apathy towards its customers is shocking. Traveling with three children , our flight was delayed by 3hrs resulting us arriving in Paris after 1AM. With the airport shuttle(CDVAL) to our airport hotel closed, they offered no assistance despite of my request. Simply asked us to take a taxi (when all taxi stands are abandoned at 2AM). Beware if traveling with family."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The time. The flight was late for 1 hour. I miss everything and also I get very late to our Airbnb and I was with my family and child"

Pros: "Crew was awesome!!"
Cons: "I paid extra for the seat, but there was a metal box under the seat in front of me that curtailed my ability to stow my carry bag, and my leg room. I am very diappointed that I paid above the normal seat charge as if there was a premium to this seat, but in reality it was a sb par seat."

Pros: "Efficient and smooth flight. Service was great and flight attendants were friendly"
Pros: "That I was able to sleep a bit on the flight - and that we gained an hour."

Pros: "Nice crew, free snacks"
Cons: "For taller people flying economy sucks . The seats are always to small"
Pros: "Missed connection and it was airport not Delta that was the problem. Not a good way to start a vacation. Rating is for the Paris Airport, not the flight crew or Air France employees. Still sitting in the airport when we should be at our destination."
Cons: "Hundreds of people missed their flights. Delta had us into Paris with an hour and a half to get to connecting flight. Missed flight due to huge delay in passport approval. They seemed completely unprepared."

Cons: "No entertainment or usb plugsto charge."
Pros: "All 4 legs of our flight were right on time, and the planes appeared to be clean."

Cons: "A bit of food would have been nice on a 5 1/2 hour flight!"

Cons: "The cramped space"
Pros: "Food was ok and options for entertainment"
Cons: "I was sold a British Airways Flight and got AA"
Cons: "Nickel and diming people for every little thing. I didn't mean to select a paid seat upon making my reservation on-line, and I couldn't get it to come off. Had to pay anyway."
Cons: "Tv was out the entire international flight. When I asked the flight attendant for help he said that "wasn't his job" and walked away. When I asked another attendant for help she said there wasnt anything she could do and that their "tv's suck". Rude crew, uncomfortable, cheap."
Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "Left 25 minutes late. when I asked the flight attendant to let me move further to the front so I can leave the plane quick and not miss my connection I was told that there were no other seats. I looked and YES there was at least 5 other seats in rows much closer than mine! Also upon arrival we did not get off the plane for 15 minutes . My connection was boarding already. I had to go from gate E 6 to gate B14 in a flash at the age of 66 I barely made it out of breath and they were about to close the doors! I was not a happy camper when I was told in the flight 5406 that I had plenty of time!!! not to worry!!!"
Pros: "Well done again!"
Cons: "No WiFi"
Pros: "Tight isles tight seats crabby attendants sucks the life out of you. You arrive at destination feeling dead."
Cons: "Movies were ok. The food was passable, but, no place to eat it. Small trays, no place to put anything. And no sooner you get organized and situated to eat and was movie their ready to collect trash. Can I eat without choking my food......I got 8 hours to kill! Luggage was there when we arrived.....guess that was good...."
Cons: "Lack of communication from the crew on the delay."
Pros: "Flight itself was fine"

Cons: "Kosher meals were so so."
Pros: "Courteous and polite"
Cons: "Nothing was a great flight"
Pros: "There was an air traffic back-up for a few minutes, and instead of just letting us sit there wondering what was going on, the pilot gave us periodic updates on what was happening, which made the process much easier. Also, the flight attendants were friendly, which makes a big difference."
Pros: "Friendly flight stewardesses!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Food horrible especially for first class and entertainment did not work"
Pros: "The flight was late octavius"
Pros: "AA provided free headphones, free movies, music, and such."

Cons: "Entertainment system seemed to overload and choke at times. Seats were ok but no coach seats are great overnight."
Cons: "Bhm flight delayed . Threw everything else off"
Cons: "Missed my transfer in London because the plane took too long to unboard and I was unable to make it to the gates of my next flight in time, despite there being over an hour connection time. The flight came in slightly late and passports were re-inspected upon unboarding which wasted a lot of time, and Heathrow is a nightmare of an airport on a good day, which made it very difficult to get where I needed to go."
Pros: "Flight arrived safely and on time."
Cons: "Luggage was terrible. Forced me to check my 1 small laptop bag despite letting others board with duffel bags, then lost 1 of our actual checked bags in the airport for an hour after our other bag was delivered."
Pros: "uncomfortable seats, narrow space"
Cons: "If the plane had some wifi, better food,"
Cons: "More space is needed for legroom."
Cons: "It was frustrating to have to pay to check only one bag for a long international flight. Fortunately, I had two seats to myself, so it made it easier to be comfortable during the long flight. Food was mediocre, but good enough. Would have preferred more vegetables or fruit than sweets."
Pros: "Iberia cancelled my incoming flight to Madrid and put me on an earlier one, but refused to let me on the earlier flight to Bilboa, which made a long waiting time!"
Cons: "The crew"
Cons: "The crew is not nice and rude. The checkin counter didnt allow me to have overweight of 300 grams. Ridiculous. At some areas of the plan the air conditioning doesn't work well"
Cons: "Missed connection and this delayed by 20 hours to final destination."
Pros: "I had a problem finding ticket number for a return ticket. It took an hour at boarding but Iberia rep. found it and saved the day. She really cared and got the job done. Can't say enough about this Argentine rep. Also this was an international flight and they did Not hassle us about the weight of our carry on. Last year Etihad weighed our purses with a bathroom scale at the door of the aircraft. Outrageous. Slowed boarding for over an hour and cost passengers an average of $150 - $320."
Cons: "Food was terrible all around. Didn't pass out water during 11 hour flight and all the "good" movies didn't load."
Cons: "There is not enough space for my legs and specially when the passenger in front move the seat"
Pros: "Good entertainment options, Good food options, Pleasant staff and flight attendants"
Cons: "Seats were not as comfortable as the ones on the British Airways flight I took from NYC to Rome."
Pros: "First time flying El Al. Hopefully my last. They delayed the flight to give three people - two of whom were ladies iver the age of fifty - intensive security screens. I was given one as well. They took my laptop, one of my pbones, my tanlet, and my headphones. This would havr neen bearable if El Al invested in its cabins, but that doesnt seem the case. The headphones provided were similar to models from the 90s (and worked just as well), there was no individual screen for entertainment, and the seats were exceedingly cramped. At least the Wi-Fi was free."
Pros: "The flight is barley an hour so nothing was served. I was glad I had water on me. Other wise it was a easy flight"
Cons: "It was hard to hear the woman when we were boarding."
Pros: "On time, polite, comfortable"
Pros: "Other than that I landed safely. Nothing"
Cons: "From the staff to the food but mostly the staff. I have never experienced worse customer care then this. Pretty bold statement since I’m a New Yorker. Flight was delayed and it wasn’t weather related. Too much to complain about . Never again will I travel with them."
Cons: "Barcelona to Madrid... got the TB section. Chorus of coughers in these days."
Pros: "On time, Very professional crew."
Cons: "Could not do online check-in."
Pros: "Flight was safe, aircraft was clean and luckily with enough room under the seat to store carry on bag"
Cons: "The fact that all the passengers boarding in "group 3" were forced to check in their carry-on bags if they did not fit under the seat; and retrieve those at the baggage claim area (not right after exiting the airplane) In my case I was able to store my carryon under the seat in front of me after pleading to the crew and gate members to let me try because of my connecting flights. There is no complimentary food service, even water is charged."
Pros: "Good on board movies."
Cons: "Start boarding with the last row, not the 1st row - so people settling into the 1st rows do not hold up the people trying to reach the higher rows."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine"
Cons: "The agents at check in were rude and unhelpful despite the fact that I was traveling business class. One even tried to tell me what it is like to fly in the US, that it is worse than in Spain."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was good."
Cons: "Flight was significantly delayed. During this time, there was no air conditioning and it was extremely warm in the plane. Crew provided no guidance on connections at any point during flight."
Pros: "No free food this time. Shorter EU flight and seats not as spacious because of it."
Cons: "Very good"
Cons: "For the first time ever an airline lost my luggage. I fly several times a year and thus was my firat time flying Iberia. What a headache and inconvenience."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled due to weather. BA could not rebook me to get me to Seville in time for my meetings."
Pros: "Landing was perfect"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "The crew is so rough, never smiling, and speaking very poor English. Well, it was Iberia, and they are famous for that. When the Spanish company will address the fact that customer service should be their top priority is still to be seen."
Cons: "There were no vegetarian/pescatarian meals available so I literally ate bread rolls for dinner & the tv audio was broken. I paid $40 for 45 MB of WIFI so that I could work and the internet lasted about 10 minutes. i couldn't even send an email within that time. The tv screen itself kept flipping back down to the aisle. Finally, the temperature was freezing & the bathrooms were disgusting."
Cons: "After a delayed flight coming to Madrid, I was faced with an unbelievably long boarding control line, it seemed clear that I would miss my flight! Crew then stopped all people from going up to the security check point except those headed to London! But I was going to miss my flight to JFK also. This process was so poorly managed!!!! The crowd became very angry, some people even started pushing, yelling and becoming violent. I feared for my safety. I pleaded with a crew member to let me through, and eventually she did, but the process was frightening and chaotic!!!"
Pros: "Flight from tel aviv to Madrid was awful. Bathroom was dirty and no hand soap. Ordere d a special meal and never came. It was so cramped you couldn't move. I was betwee 2 tall men who placed there legs under my seat. No direction for connection flight."
Cons: "My connection flight to use was better on americal"
Pros: "Great in flight experience! Cabin crew were very friendly and kind. Entertainment was awesome!"
Cons: "Food was delicious compared to most American airlines. However, portions were smaller. Seating is more narrow compared to standard non low-cost laung-haul airlines. You will not have a pleasant flight if you're a tall and/or a big person."
Pros: "very comfortable had my own TV screen with free Wi-Fi loved it"
Cons: "I had my own TV screen with free Wi-Fi loved itI thought the food going was better then on the return trip to New York I was in row 57 and most of the food had run out by the time they got to Wes the one meal I had which was a burger was all dried out again going to Madrid had better food"
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "No air conditioning.no help with making connecting flight/customs. Staff could not speak english."
Pros: "They really know how to treat passengers. We enjoyed flight and the food was great. I haven't eaten so much on a flight in he last 14 years"
Pros: "We like the food, the entretenment service, the airplane was new and flight attendants was very polite !!!"
Pros: "Seats and service"
Cons: "We ended up flying to Paris on Air France because it was the only flight left after RAM screwed us over. Cost me $1800 dollars and no chance to retrieve my money back unless someone sends me a letter saying someone screwed up. Need help please!"
Pros: "We didn't crash."
Cons: "No priority lane for frequent flyers at MAD, no lounge at IBZ to use if your return is on BA (thought that was the same company?) Rude employees. Flight still not credited to AA 6 months later."
Pros: "I was safely delivered from New York to Tennessee in pretty turbulent weather."
Cons: "The craft was small and the seating was cramped, seats were uncomfortable. The flight attendant was very brief with the Safety protocols and really did a poor job of demonstrating how to use the safety equipment provided on the aircraft. This was a disservice to first time flyers."
Pros: "Upon boarding the flight attendant looked at my seat # and directed to to the correct side of the aircraft. I found this to be very helpful, since on the trip over I was in the wrong side had to bother people to move so I could get to the correct side of the aircraft. Travel can be very stressful, this made boarding quicker and easier."
Pros: "Departed and arrived on time."
Cons: "Was charged for coffee."
Pros: "On time experience."
Cons: "Tight quarters, I'm 6'2". No free coffee options."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly good, and I had no issues once on either plane."
Cons: "The layover in Madrid was too short. Because the first leg was slightly delayed, I missed the flight to my final destination. They ended up giving me a ticket which departed more than 12 hours after my arrival in Madrid (!). I had to go to the horrible inconvenience of wandering through the huge airport looking for their customer support desk, waiting in line, returning an hour or two later, and eventually getting myself a standby ticket on an earlier flight. I still ended up in the airport for about 4-6 hours. They provided a coupon for a free lunch, and there was a lounge to stay in, but for a transatlantic flight, adding an extra 4-6 hours was really bad."
Pros: "Each seat had its own entertainment. The food was good."
Cons: "We didn't get our boarding pass for the connection flight which caused a lot of problems when we got to NY. The airline attendant didn't say there was a problem with out itinerary. We found out until we got to NY and we were giving our luggage to Iberia for our connection. The person there said we were in the wrong airport! We had just landed there and our connection was leaving from there too JFK! He said there was nothing he could do and he sent us to the other airline counter to see if they would help us!"
Pros: "The quality of the service from the crew was superb. It was comfortable, relaxing and the food was delicious."
Pros: "Timing, personnel and plain"
Pros: "The flight from Raleigh to Heathrow London was LONG, so I especially enjoyed the wine being included without extra cost! Wine helped me to relax, read, & survive the long sleepless night!"
