Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Jetblue always has issues with their planes-this is the 4th time I have had a Jetblue reservation and I had to jump on another flight at the last minute because we were not being kept informed of whether the mechanical issues were going to be able to be resolved. Really disappointed in Jetblue"
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth, and attendants were kind and entertainment system seemed good."
Cons: "Attendants could allow passengers to use extra leg room seats if they are empty once in the air. Would be great if the default setting for the screens was OFF."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, on-boarding was easy and fast, everything was clean, and there were nice touches like a sleep mask and ear plugs on every seat."
Cons: "The leg room was better than in other flights, but that's not saying much and the seats were very uncomfortable and for such a long flight, it was deeply uncomfortable overall. My knee joints still hurt two days later."
Pros: "Nice crew. Safe flight"
Pros: "The crew was great and polite."
Cons: "Crew"
Pros: "Extra space seats. The crew. The food. The landing! Pre-board bag check at gate - asking for volunteers."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The aircraft was clean and comfortable and everything went official"
Cons: "The film did not work"
Pros: "Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Delay"
Cons: "connection in jfk was much too tight"
Cons: "Luggage claim was not correct. We were given wrong carrousel number. Our luggage was at carrousel #6, but we were directed toward carrousel #2, even the help desk person was saying “luggage would come to carrousel 2”. It was a big hassle. Fortunately, my next connecting flight is after 6 hours."
Pros: "I like only 1 thing wi - fi is working good."
Cons: "I don’t like anything. It’s a worse airline ever i take I would like to suggest never ever fly with jet blue . I go through so many problems so rude employees working at help desk . Especially steven he said he is supervisor then he says he is only shift leader instead of helping he just talking so mean guy . This is really a big story i try to put in small words ...i fly with them on march 2nd LAX to JFK my finale destination is amritsar in India because of their fault i miss my next flight . The lady help me in morning she is very mean i wanna talk to supervisor she say I’m supervisor but she is only shift leader.i forgot her name . When steven told me he is supervisor i was like"
Pros: "My connecting flight was delayed and I had to fly into a different city to avoid being overnight in an airport."
Cons: "Delays"
Cons: "Television need to be fix"
Cons: "When I scanned my boarding pass the Jetblue staff member told me my carry on was too big and had to be checked. This was puzzling to me because I travel often and do not have a problem with that bag. As I was sitting on the plane I saw everyone's bag's were bigger especially the man next to me. His was significantly larger and he had a large duffle bag between his legs causing him to manspread into my area. and yet i was told "make sure your purse is under the seat" seriously?! What about his giant duffle bag and huge carry on roller?!"
Cons: "Delayed over 4 hours..missed connecting flight.."
Pros: "Food, music, weather"
Cons: "The people always asking you to buy things on the street they were annoying"
Pros: "Always great!"
Cons: "limited choice for snack and very small portion."
Pros: "The crew seemed capable and came around a couple times with water. We arrived safe and sound as one would hope for, if an hour or so later than scheduled. Seats seemed roomier than most standard economy/coach (probably due to it being an older model). Though I didn’t partake they seemed to offer more complimentary snack options than other airlines."
Cons: "The airplane cabin had a strong urine odor that endured throughout the red-eye flight, the air temperature had to have been at least 75 degrees, probably 80 which was a bit stifling. No usb/power at the seat which would be preferable/should be standard by now for a coast-to-coast flight. Seat didn’t recline which isn’t the end of the world but a bit of a bummer. My headphones didn’t work with the little screen at my seat but it’s ok because based on my neighbor’s screen it was just a rotating lineup of Jet Blue commercials/fake tv shows that I can easily pass on."
Pros: "I liked nothing"
Cons: "I didn't like anything"
Pros: "Did not travel. The plane didn t takeoff."
Cons: "Everything."
Cons: "Had to reschedule the flight because it was delayed. With these delays, we would have certainly missed our connecting flight and ended up stranded at JFK."
Pros: "Great service on the flight."
Pros: "The crew is courteous to us. We had a delay flight but theymade sure that we are all informed and guided."
Pros: "2 hr delay very rushed boarding"
Cons: "C above"

Cons: "It was fine"
Pros: "Managed to switch me and my luggage to an earlier flight. Great service!"
Pros: "I love flying jet blue because of the efficiency with boarding, the snacks, ease of flying on the east coast, non stop flights, and movies and entertainment on the plane."
Cons: "My flight was delayed because the radio was not working. They tried to reset the plane /computers but it didn't work and they needed an electrical engineer to try to fix it, but it seems it was more complicated so they had to deplane us and put us on a new plane. They handled everyone that has connecting flights really well and the rest of us going to JFK they let us board the next flight. Overall it was okay and out of control of anyone."
Pros: "Free wifi when I got my bags and was headed out of the airport. I had to order an uber to the wifi helped"
Pros: "Welcoming friendly staff. No fuss boarding."
Cons: "Seat isn't that comfortable. Headrest isn't great."
Cons: "the coffee was very bad .A decent cup of coffee can make someone's day start on the right footing."
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Too long flight time I noticed the plane speed was 440 MPH most of the time. This may be the first flight I sat which was flying this slow"
Pros: "Original flight was delayed 2 hours was luckily able to get on standby for another flight with no help from kayak or jet blue."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight from Boston to JFK in Ny was delayed an hour. We got to JFK and ran from the plane to the terminal and they had already closed the door but the plane was still there. They wouldn't let us on the flight and it ended up even being delayed for 30 minutes! We talked to JetBlue and they said they couldn't do anything for us so not only did we miss out on a day in Italy, we lost our a ton of money on all the things we booked for Tuesday. We also then had to get a hotel in ny and everything was booked so we almost had to sleep at the airport but luckily we found a place that had a last minute opening. Still was super expensive and no one helped with a "destressed rate". Now we have to wait until 10 again tonight to try to catch the plane to Milan because Emirates only has one flight a day. This has been the worst travel experience I have ever had."
Cons: "Delayed 3 hours, missed connection to Manchester. 2 seniors, 2 adults, and 2 children 9 and 7. (One of the 6 was a young girl traveling alone and was crying, so I insisted that she stay with us. CaThey wouldn't accommodate us for the night, said there were no hotels available. Found something on our own, had to pay out of pocket plus cab fare to get there. Cab driver said we would have to use the GPS on our phone because he didn't know how to get there. Our luggage was locked up at Thomas Cook and no one would be available. We are wearing the same clothes, no medication, etc. They rebooked us on a flight at 10:00 pm the following night. It has been a nightmare! Very disappointed in Jet Blue. I also bought insurance through Alliance and they said I wasn't covered."
Cons: "no real alternative was given for the missed flight due to weather. No body knows where is my luggage"
Cons: "Filght ( Jetblue )got delayed by 3 hrs from Boston to Newyork , and travel got postponed to the next day due to this and rescheduled in Qatar airways. There was lot of inconviniences, time losss and personal adjustments occured along with the financial loss due to the change of travel date."
Pros: "Comfortable seating and good entertainment choices."
Cons: "Weather delays had us waiting on the tarmac for over an hour to take off."
Pros: "I had a very troubling encounter with a JetBlue employee at the ticket counter - BWI Airport. Specifically, when I approached the tick counter and asked if there were any flights going to Boston (03/12/2017), I was told by one if the ladies No more available flights to Boston (with a pleasant professional smile); from which I accessed the Kayak app ND discovered there were additional flights, wherein I proceeded to purchase a ticket. Once I obtained my confirmation from the JetBlue website via Kayak, I returned to the ticket counter and noticed the employee who gave me the false information left the area and did not return. I find this encounter troubling. The act committed by the unnamed employee indicates their are employees that feel empowered to commit deceitful acts."
Pros: "Good but could improve on food. We need more food, beside that I am satisfied"
Cons: "Service in general, nice plane it's new and large seating spaces"
Cons: "After a 5 1/2 hour flight from Iceland, we knew we had a three hour layover in Boston, which turned into a 5 1/2 hour layover. The crew was there, but there was no plane. I completely understand weather delays, traffic delays etc, However the gate staff never made any type of announcements with reference to the delay, in fact many of us thought that the flight had an excellent chance of being cancelled. Also we we arrived in Ft. Lauderdale (at 1:30 am) we had to wait almost an hour to get our luggage, something broke (not sure what) and I believe they couldn't get the luggage off the plane. BUT.....there was someone there giving updates every 15 minutes or so which was greatly appreciated."

Nothing but have more flight attendants like Tara

The comfort was excellent

Delta does a great job in general. However, the “Comfort+“ seats weren’t worth the money. I sat in both seats, and I compared the width of the seats and the distance from the seat edge to the back of the seat in front of it. There was a difference of about 2” in the seat width and 1” in the leg room. Very disappointing.

Same comment as before. Should not be part of skyteam. Alitlia is way below standard for that group of stellar airlines. Staff is unfriendly, delivers poor service and do not make you feel welcome on board. Food is good. Only water not other drinks available. No garbage college during flight or before landing. Entertaining is so so and the bathrooms are dirty.

No complaints!!

This was the Delta Shuttle flight (operated by Republic Airways (therefore not a mainline flight)). The crew was exceptional in expediting boarding, accommodating customers, and politely dealing with “difficult” passengers (don’t be that passenger - it’s a 40 minute flight). Great flight overall.

I like that I got to my destination safely.

Everyone is doing their best, but travel sucks! Mask wearing is necessary but odious. The worst thing is the toilets on 767s are so cramped that you cannot see where the trash is without crouching down or being a pigmy, so people leave their towels by the sink!

Lots of delays. Armrests are not big enough for two people.

Pros: "crew was amazing"
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Sanitized, open middle seats, comfortable"
Cons: "We were stuck on the tarmac for 40+ minutes due to our gate being blocked by another plane. We almost missed our connection and had to run through the airport with our luggage and the staff at our second gate yelling “hurry up” at us like it was our fault."
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Delta service and comfort is always excellent."
Cons: "All is great just keep it up"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable, empty middle seats. Good movie selection."
Cons: "Snacks lacked variety and nutritional value."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Everything! the best part was that the they kept the middle seat empty!"
Cons: "nothing"
Cons: "I dont know WHY Delta changed my flight with ALIITALIA, but, DON'T DO IT DELTA. The check in process took an hour, not talking about the line, the ACTUAL checkin at the counter. I couldn't complete my web checkin at the AliItalia web site. Landed in JFK, still sucks as an airport, nobody helps, nobody explains anything, very poor signs and instructions, Global Entry kiosk are hard to spot. My connection ticket didn't have the TSA/PRECHECK legend, went to AliItalia counter, the lady at AliItalia barely said anything when I asked for help with that, her immediate answer was to disengage and sent me to another terminal "to talk to Delta". She didn't explain or didn't want to give an explanation until I started to act as an already 9hr30min flight frustrated customer in a very old, very poor plane with poor food service. Again, I bought an over $1,000 ticket with DELTA, NOT ALIITALIA, if Delta send people with their "partners" at least make sure that they are taken care of properly."
Cons: "Being given seats at the gate. I like to choose my seat."
Pros: "Entertainment was great , also being able to watch live tv. Cabin crew were good"
Cons: "Be on time , delayed for an hour"
Cons: "Plane was late taking off. Crew did not provide water when requested. They were busy with beverages that they could sell at a cost."
Pros: "extra legroom of comfort plus zone"
Cons: "Bordung process runs smoother now that the order is made clear ahead of time. In jfk they did not have the columns marked “comfort” “priority? “Main 3”, etc, like they had at Reagan arpoirt in DC"
Pros: "Delta does an overall nice job."
Cons: "Food is OK. Service is friendly though. Comfort + was nice. Bathrooms were not great, smelled, could use a refresh."
Pros: "Seating was fine"
Cons: "Did not have a wheelchair waiting for my wife when we arrived in LAX"
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."
Cons: "Crew could have proactively provided more water. I was really thirsty mid-flight and had to stand up and ask for water myself."
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew. Comfortable and food was good and drinks and water was plentiful. I would highly recommend Delta for transatlantic flights,compared to so called 4* airline Aer Lingus, then Delta are a 6* in comparison"
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays... first class ticket from BOS to MSP got me a 6 hour delay and a middle seat in econ main cabin at the back of the plane. Delta you suck!"
Pros: "Got to London on-time (early, actually) and safely. The in flight meal was okay. The leg room in comfort plus was great, the mobile app was awesome, and the staff (check-in, gate, cabin and flight deck) were professional and friendly all around."
Cons: "The leg room was great, but as a broad-shouldered guy, the width of the seat was miserable. Unfortunately, the Delta 767 doesn't offer any upgrade for a wider seat beyond Delta One, and my employer won't spring for that. Too bad there isn't a premium economy option. Also, the entertainment unit in the seat next to mine malfunctioned, which you wouldn't think would impact me that much except that because it was "seeing" touches randomly throughout the flight, the screen would turn on, off, brighter, dimmer, play random stuff, and just generally be as annoying as possible to everyone nearby throughout an overnight flight."
Pros: "good flight and pleasant staff"
Cons: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"
Pros: "A3A"
Cons: "Ĺ"
Cons: "The volume controls on the tv we’re pretty poor. Was either too loud or too soft with only 5-6 volume settings."
Pros: "The staff. They were very helpful and polite!"
Cons: "We didn’t leave on time"
Pros: "We didn’t order food and there was no online entertainment"
Pros: "the service in general very nice"
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "Late flight without any compensation for our trouble"
Cons: "Much older plane. Not as comfortable as some other planes I've been on."
Pros: "Nice people. Very helpful."
Cons: "LOST MY BAG IN BOSTON BEFORE EVEN TAKING OFF!!!! Did not make it, and then won't deliver it when it makes it to Kathmandu! This is most distressing."
Pros: "Food selection and quality were fine. I also enjoyed the entertainment options. Seat area was comfortable and spacious."
Cons: "The flight attendants were uniformly rude and nasty to passengers from start to finish. As I boarded, I asked for a piece of art to be stored in the wardrobe compartment. This was treated as an inconvenience. During and after boarding, flight attendants addressed passengers rudely when encouraging them to take their seats in a timely fashion. Later, when my seat mate politely asked a FA to repeat the food options, she asked, "Excuse me?" several times and seemed very irritated to have to repeat the choices for him. Also, near the end of the flight, a pillow was on the ground and a FA asked those seated in my row to pick it up. We responded that it wasn't ours and she said something to the effect of, "Oh yeah? So how did it get there?" (Maybe because someone else dropped it and we didn't notice?) The FAs seemed irritated to serve passengers at all. Each time they passed through for beverage or meal service, I felt like I was imposing on them. I have never witnessed anything quite like it. Makes me wonder why they were all so upset and and felt it appropriate to speak and act disrespectfully toward customers. (Delta, do you have any insights?) I hope they all got a good night's rest after that haul."
Cons: "As a Platinum AFK/KLM Skyteam member I was NOT allowed to use the Delta Lounge. On the flight the meal choice was poor and the staff were not really geared to serving regular clients. The movie choice was poor. I expected better!"
Cons: "My flight got cancelled without letting me know in advance I was in the airport and spent me hours to switch a flight I ended up arriving at a different airport and need to spend more money for über"
Cons: "My wife was told she could not board our flight from Boston to Paris because her passport was expired, even though it was not expired. We were told that in Europe passports cannot expire within 3 months of your departure. However, Delta never let us know about this rule until we literally were boarding the plane. How they could not make us aware of this until we were boarding the airplane is unbelievable and unacceptable. This has ruined our vacation which has been in planning for the last six months."
Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."
Pros: "Boarding in St Thomas is always a mess, no matter what airline you fly. I usually fly Delta because the planes are clean and the people are nice. Well this time the staff went well above and beyond. My friend and I were sitting in the front row of seats in the lounge at the airport, facing the Delta gates. There was a mob of people milling about between us and the gate, so we could not see very well, but we thought we had a clear view of the door. Also it was very loud in the terminal. The flight had a delay, so we were relaxing and chatting, when I got a text from my mom asking if I was on the plane. So I went to the counter to inquire if they had started boarding our flight. The lady looked at me with surprise and said, "We have been paging you!!". Well we were both surprised! We had not heard anything over the general din in the airport. It turns out they had completed boarding and already rolled the stairs away from the plane! The ground staff talked to the captain and then they rolled up a set of stairs, opened the door to the plane, and let us on! The flight attendants said that they had never seen that happen before. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the crew at Delta for going the extra mile to make sure we made it on our flight."
Cons: "There is nothing I didn't like about this flight!!"
Pros: "red"
Cons: "red"
Pros: "Great crew and passengers"
Pros: "Delta service and conford are great."
Cons: "Pay for wifi"
Cons: "I understand delays happen, but Delta delayed the flight significantly and only informed customers around the time they had arrived at the airport - especially for an early morning flight, where you are counting on being able to sleep on the plane ASAP, that is absolute hell. If they had messaged even 30 mins earlier, we could have rescheduled our cab and slept at the hotel given we were on 2 hours sleep. We received the text 3 minutes before we arrived at the airport and tried to sleep on benches as the front desk kept delaying the boarding time by 20 minutes 4 times, each time exactly at the previously extended ETD, which is far more frustrating than if they had just extended it once by 80 minutes so we could legitimately relax."
Pros: "Worst experience ever."
Cons: "While my experience with Virgin Australia was good, I will not book with them due to the co-share with Delta Airlines. I missed my connecting flight from LAX to JFK due to additional security screening. As such I was advised to head to the Delta terminal to be booked onto the next available flight to NYC. After waiting over an hour in line to be seen by a staff member, I was told that they couldn't change my ticket as it was a Virgin flight. The same staff member didn't seem to even understand the concept of 'co-share', and also told me that because I booked through Kayak and not Delta that they could not help me. This makes me think that booking through a third party is a risky move. I was told there was absolutely nothing she could do, and that I would have go to a Virgin Australia Counter. This involved taking all of my luggage from Terminal 5 - all the way to Terminal 3. I was assisted by Virgin Australia, where they apologized for my experience, and confirmed that it was Delta's responsibility (and that they were capable) of rebooking my flight. Virgin booked me onto a later flight, but I still had to walk back to Terminal 5 (Delta) to give them my checked luggage. I was once again told that I didn't have the right ticket (details listed Virgin and Delta flight number - so this was way too confusing for them). Finally they printed my a boarding card and took my bags. I then ran through security and to gate in time for my flight. Flight was fully booked, due to a many people no doubt experiencing the same thing. Food was awful. Was a big step down from the Virgin flight in every aspect. There was not a single Delta Staff member who would even try to understand or be helpful. I will never fly with Delta again."

Check in was horrible in Miami. The woman was rude and not helpful with the questions. There was nothing to like at the check in and there were really slow even for First class passenger like me.

Cons: "Too crowded c19"
Cons: "Comfort of seats. Aisles were too narrow and everyone was touching each other even when they didn’t want to. Seats were uncomfortable and narrow"
Pros: "Yes and Yes"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "Crew were exceptional!!! Organizing the passengers and make the arrangements to meet the requirements of social distance. Bravo!!!"
Cons: "Cookies had a very bad taste. Water was perfect!"
Pros: "The crew was respectful and friendly, the seat was comfortable"
Pros: "I managed to slip ahead a couple of rows into what I guess was a slightly upgraded seating area. This resulted in my flight being very nice. But had I not been able to pull off this minor theft, I think it would have been miserable. Sitting up straight, without the seat ahead of me reclined, my knees touched the back fo the seat in front of me. It felt like I was sitting at a table in a kindergarten classroom, not a chair meant for an adult. In the upgraded seat I was very comfortable. Staff on board was friendly and helpful throughout the flight."
Cons: "I haven't flown American Airlines in quite a while and one gets quite spoiled flying on Emirates or Qatar or Singapore or Norwegian or whatever other airlines. It's easy to forget how utterly mediocre AA is. The food isn't great, the air quality on the flight is terrible and leaves you feeling oily. They don't air-condition the plane until after everyone is boarded so the whole process is hot, sweaty, and unpleasant. Many of the staff are flat out rude to people (I was never on the receiving end, but I overheard what I considered very abrasive tones to others). And so on. Ideally I'd fly on other airlines I think."
Pros: "Customer Service was acceptable."
Cons: "Flights were cancelled and bags were lost!"
Pros: "Wide choice of films on the flight, boarding was hassle free."
Cons: "Crew could have been much politer when asking about the food wishes of others. Seemed to have no idea how to walk through the aisles, hitting my head and shoulders more than once while walking through."
Pros: "The crew could care less about you..... You tell them your problem and they tell you to call American Airlines...."
Cons: "There attitudes.... you need to hire caring people...."
Pros: "The seat was great"
Cons: "Cabin crew - service"
Cons: "Seats what happened to towlets after food Also never asked if we would like water etc I felt invisible"
Pros: "The crew was really nice and helpful."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for awhile and there was little information on an ETA of when we would be able to leave."
Cons: "The flight from Boston was extremely delayed,but miraculasly, the boarding to conecting FinnAir flight 6, took extra 10 minutes, which gave me a chance not to catch it. Though, me and the AA rep., had to cross-run about a mile up and down the escalators at terminal 8 , my baggage was left behind and did not make a transfer to FinnAir 6. At final destination I was asked to file a lost baggage claim. If not the initial flight from Logan, everything should go smoother."
Pros: "Comfortable flight. New plane"
Pros: "The flagship first seats in American Airlines are among the best in class given that I only flew from Miami to JFK. Fully flat beds and ample room."
Cons: "Very limited food options."
Pros: "Bos to Rome via jfk. Both flights easy in all ways. Grrat first class seat one first flight and quite good bus class on second. New Flagship Lounge a real plus."
Cons: "There was a flight delay. That would have caused me to miss my connection. The airline switched me to another airline and did not notify me. Caused me to run all over the airport and waste extra 4 hours in waiting."
Pros: "Chocolate ice cream and pot pies"
Cons: "To start, I had paid extra to upgrade to a seat with more leg room only to find I had been reassigned to the back of the plane. This was after I had already done an online check-in for the appropriate seat. Then I was told by the AA agent at the desk that my upgrade was in the system but that it was “fake”. Apparently the money I paid two months before was no good on this flight. I was traveling with my boyfriend and they would not allow us at the same counter because we were not married. After much haggling we were finally able to rectify the situation. Horrible start. Then, once on the plane, the in- flight entertainment system as well as the lights broke right before take off so there was nothing to watch or see for an almost 8 hour flight."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of the scheduled time"
Cons: "Plane was less than half full yet the crew appeared pressured .... one crew member didn’t wait for me to complete my request and she brought me eat phones yet I wanted to ask for water to drink! Seats don’t recline much ...."
Pros: "Relatively comfortable plane, great movies (I watched four!), good timing between meals/snacks."
Cons: "These planes are always SO cramped. We paid to be in the section with 9 seats across instead of 10 which was worth it but wish that they would just give everyone slightly more space - seems humane for such long flights! The group boarding on these huge planes always seems chaotic. Also it seems like it would honestly make more sense to start at the back and move forward. Would have less waiting for people in front of you to get settled. Wish the last snack had a piece of fruit or something with a bit more healthy aspect."
Pros: "Flight crew were very apologetic"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight from Miami. Only one flight per day. Had to take a flight to an alternative location, drive for an hour down the coast and take a ferry to my final destination."
Pros: "Asked a stewardess to turn the heat up and she did."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Every person I could see was wrapped up in their blanket before we had even taken off."
Cons: "Food and drinks could be better"
Pros: "Crew very friendly couldn't be more helpful. Food snacks and drinks good. Very efficient boarding system the best I've encountered."
Cons: "Roof mounted tvs a bit disappointing and the films were just repeated. Coffee needs coffee in the cup, it was just milk and water no taste of coffee."
Pros: "Good space in premium"
Cons: "Female cabin crew were aggressive, discourteous and frankly rude to the passengers when they had to verbally communicate. I hear this so often with American cabin crew. When I started to experience this I became aware of the same trend in regard communications with other passengers. Very unattractive."
Pros: "Generally clean plane with good entertainment system and technology overall. Diabetic meal much better than in the past."
Cons: "Didn't announce meal choices at the start so flight attendant had to repeat herself every. Single. Row. They forgot my diabetic meal on the last part them forgot to include cutlery and it took a long time to sort out but they were otherwise lovely."
Pros: "The overall service x"
Pros: "Nice flight, great leg room, staff was friendly and flight was on time."
Pros: "strategic boarding to avoid standing in the cold"
Cons: "WASNT ENOUGH ROOM FOR CARRY ONS"
Pros: "The plane is updated and very comfortable."
Cons: "The change in policy of the 1 bag under seat, caught me by surprise."
Pros: "Due to a strong tailwind we arrived 45 minutes ahead of schedule. Great service with attentive attendants. However the plane was older than me, no real entertainment system or outlets to plug in smart devices."
Cons: "Plane needs to be retired or retrofitted to accommodate smart device charging."
Pros: "No hassle of changing terminals in JFK, no bagagge claim, AA check-in-this time, was a "good luck"....Connection in Helsinki, very quik!"
Cons: "Finnair flight AY06 are old aircrafts. Every other in-seat monitor was out of order, flight attendants could not do much. That created mess for passengers, trying to move their seats to the ones with working monitors....."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and caring"
Cons: "The music and entertainment collection was very limited"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Flight was late, seats was small, all time something smelled so much."
Pros: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."
Pros: "They offered pretty decent food and snack options that were included in the flight- the high quality chocolate ice cream was an especially nice touch as well as the included wine. My seat appeared to have more space than the flight previous to it, so that added a lot more comfort without the extra expense of having to pay for the "more space" seating- I often feel like airlines nickel and dime you to death these days. Perhaps it was just the luck of the draw, but the seats had much more legroom than my first flight to Paris as opposed to the return to NY. The flight crew were all courteous and pleasant. Leather seating with readily available pillows and blankets for all was a nice touch as well."
Cons: "Having to use communal screens for watching movies and shows, having no choice as to what was displayed, having trouble seeing everything displayed (too far and small to see nuance in dark scenes and print on screen), having only one bathroom mid plane."
Cons: "Trying to make any changes to the booking or check in was horrible. Because this was booked through kayak, then through an agent, then ultimately an Iberia booking on a British Airways / American flight, it took about 5 rounds of phonecalls being passed to another company or another department to get anything done. Sure the flight was cheap, but 6 hours of phone calls to get anything done is unacceptable. The plane used for this flight is ancient. Very tired seating, and no seatback entertainment. One children's film shown on the central TV screen followed by old sitcoms....For a transatlintic flight, this is really poor."
Pros: "Was on time"
Pros: "THis was an ok flight. Everything was on time and the crew was hreat. On the other hand, the food was terrible and the check in process was not expedite at all. The American Airlines crew did not know how to handle my G4 visa while checking in and they neglected to mark my bag with the orange ribbon signaling platinum status in American. This is key to getting your luggae faster in baggage claim when you have a short connection (I had less than two hours). This omission caused my suitcase to arrive last, and I had to run to make it to my next flight."
Cons: "States above"
Cons: "It was not obvious that I was flying American arlines out of Boston. I was very confy"
Pros: "Nada"
Cons: "Overbooked Long lines Lost bag for my son Rude agents Absude EU 33 charge to book a seat. Bad website. Not a decent customer service. End this airline"
Pros: "Very comfortable and nice staff"
Cons: "Had a 2.5 delay on one of my connectors from NY to Madrid. Was worried I wouldn't make my flight to Vigo on time, but I did!"
Pros: "The meals were excellent -- well timed distribution of food throughout the flight. Attentive staff. Good choices for meals and beverages. I liked the fact that we got ice cream halfway through the flight also, that's not a very common thing! Entertainment system was very good -- lots of choices of things to watch/listen to! I was pleased to find that there were movies available that had been very recently released that I had been wanting to see!"
Cons: "Comfort was okay, my seat was on the end of a row with three seats (aisle side) and immediately behind me was a row with only two seats. Without fail, the flight attendants bumped their carts into my chair EVERY time they passed. If I had been trying to sleep, this would be much more of a disturbance to me. Seeing as I was just watching movies and enjoying the food, it wasn't that much of an issue. However, I think it would be easy for the flight attendants to just take a second longer to try to navigate around the chair and not bump it every time. Little things like that go a long way, especially on a long flight."
Pros: "nothing. seriously I have NOTHING good to say about this trip"
Cons: "We boarded or flight just a few minutes late initially then had to taxi back to the gate to fix AC(?!) electrical issues, which were seemingly fixed just as we started to de-plane. Then after a slew of nonsense announcements about waiting for a new pilot, redirecting the destination, and basically misinformation about reboarding, we are told that the flight MIGHT be canceled; It has been nothing but one excuse after another and honestly after a 4 hour delay with no real answers, I really cannot find any reason to fly this airline ever again. Such poor service."
Cons: "When I booked the flight, I hadn't realized that British Airlways had contracted the flight out to be operated by American Airlines. The flight was delayed in Paris and I ended up missing my connecting flight through JFK to DC. Though we were told on the plane that we would be given assistance upon landing and helped in an expedited manner through customs, instead I was briefly informed I had missed my connecting flight, handed an envelope, and told I needed to now travel to Laguardia Airport. No other information or assistance was provided. I was not given a reason why I needed to travel an hour in NYC traffic to switch airports nor was I given any help through customs. The shuttle I was told to take was unable to take me to the correct terminal, so I needed to get on a secondary shuttle. Again, after a 7 hour international flight, little assistance or aid was provided. I was barely able to make it through security in time to catch the new flight. Additionally, the actual flight from Paris to JFK lacked basic in-flight entertainment that almost any international flight would have. I will not be traveling on American Airlines again, and I am hopeful that Kayak and BA will be more clear in the future."
Pros: "It got me home in one piece."
Cons: "The flight was delayed after some passengers began boarding. The boarding process was also all over the place. When i finally got on the plane, the seats were very uncomfortable and I felt like a sardine being crammed into a small tin. the crew was at best, mediocre and boring. The in flight snack was two crappy pieces of cookie? Or was that a cracker? I did not eat it. The entertainment was one shared screen that I did not have a headset for, nor was I offered a headset, free or for a fee. The screen in front of me was too close and the screen behind that was further away and barely able to see it. I choose not to watch it for these reasons. The landing was rough at the end, everyone jolted forward when we hit the ground."
Pros: "not a lot"
Cons: "flights were re-scheduled and therefore had to travel a day early causing overnight expenses in NY. Re-scheduled flight was also delayed by an hour!"
Cons: "it was not clear that finnair was being operated by american airlines. when I arrived to the airport in Paris, they couldn't locate my flight on finairr or american. my flight was missed and the staff on both airlines (finnair and partner american airline) were soo unhelpful. I have never missed a flight, I travel for work, in the air, more than on the ground and this was the WORST experience I have ever had. I was super disappointed that even after all the mistakes, no one would help me find a new flight and I had to pay for another one. Even after calling finnair several times and pleading for some answers or help."
Pros: "The crew were excellent and very professional. It was not a full flight and boarding was quick and easy. We landed almost an hour early. When we made the reservation we were told it was an 8 hour and 50 minute flight but we got there in 7 hours and 45 minutes, more than 1 hour early. It would be good to know the real timing so that meetings could be planned in a timely way."
Cons: "This is a code share with American Airlines and an American Airlines plane and crew and it is an out of date plane. There were no individual screens only 1 screen hanging down every five or six seats. The seats are very, very narrow. The cleanliness of the tray tables were gooey and full of crusted dirt as were the seat areas in front of the tray tables. I was told that they fly an even older plane from Europe to NY, which is an old one aisle plane. Not sure why AA continues to use such out of date planes but if they use planes from the 1980's it seems to me that they should charge 1980 prices!"
