Cons: "Food selection"
Pros: "The Pilot kept us safe XD"
Cons: "Pretzels!!! Instead of those cookies, bleh"
Pros: "I've never had such efficient boarding - I wish we could have taken off early! I loooove that there is finally a direct flight from Seattle to Pittsburgh, which I travel between at least twice a year. I will likely continue to use Alaska Airlines for this service from now on."
Cons: "In-flight entertainment embedded in the plane would have been great. I also think it's ridiculous to automatically put your super saver customers in the very last seat, especially if there are a lot of other seats available. Make the experience great for everyone right off the bat!"

Pros: "Plane shakey poo. Me so scared."
Pros: "I liked everything: the attentive and helpful staff, easy check-in and boarding, and beverage service. The only thing that could be improved is the selection of snacks. There was no meal on this flight so I cannot judge the food."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "Tried to buy internet but couldn't, seats were very uncomfortable and tight, bloody mary was under complimentary but I was charged."
Pros: "This was first Alaska airlines trip and I want to do more! I showed up at the Seattle airport and tried to use one of the many conveniently placed kiosks. I couldn't find my trip, BECAUSE I HAD BOOKED FOR THE WRONG DAY!. This could have been very stressful but an attendant near the (short) line asked me if needed help and immediately redirected me to the VIP line. There, I found another very short line, and smiling, enthusiastic staff. The young woman who helped me got my info, and walked away to get the problem solved with a supervisor. She returned a short time later, my boarding pass in hand, upgraded me to Premium seating and TSA pre check -- without me even asking! On the plane, I mostly slept, but when I woke up I found the attendant had left me my boxes snack which was a mix of nuts and dried fruit in a fancy package. The seats seemed more comfortable than they were in recent trips on United and Southwest. There were plugs everywhere for phone and device charging. There was free wifi(!!). And there were devices available for borrowing. There was even a website for free movie streaming. In a time when most other airlines have sour faced (need to retire!) attendants (Southwest an exception), and EVERYTHING is a la Carte pricing, it is so nice to fly with a company that tries to make passengers happy and comfortable. What a switch!! You"
Cons: "The only negative was when the lights were abruptly turned on around 4:45 am."
Pros: "Helpful staff"
Pros: "Ample legroom, quick boarding and baggage handling. Love the "print them yourself" luggage tags. Did not use entertainment but loved power outlet at seat. Even lucky enough to arrive early."
Cons: "No lemonade available"
Pros: "Great and fast!!"
Pros: "The promptness"
Pros: "Free movies help pass the time."
Pros: "Loved the peaceful journey"
Cons: "no chargers"
Pros: "-Complimentary Snacks Served 2x -Smooth Flight & Landing"
Cons: "-Need to be more hospitable when people need to use the Restroom."
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortavle seats"
Cons: "No healthy food options. Not a big deal"
Pros: "Love the leg room and the seat comfort. Loved free WiFi for free movie options. Staff seemed more interested in talking to each other, which is fine unless a guest needed something extra. They weren't bad, just not exceptional."
Cons: "Extra luggage fees, extra food fees, snacks soooo unhealthy."
Pros: "The crew were all wonderful and very helpful."
Cons: "The seats on the teeny-tiny Skywest planes are so uncomfortable. My back was aching after a three-hour flight, and I was in first class...can't imagine how much worse the main cabin seats are. There was no dairy-free/vegan option for the meal. I get not having vegan hot meals on hand because it's not the most common request, but even a cold snack pack (like the kind the AlaskaAir website lists as being standard in first class) would have been great."
Pros: "I have never been on a flight with such an attentive captain! He pointed out sights, provided several updates, and was very good at warning us about possible turbulence, which ended up not being too bad at all."
Pros: "Staff and crew were very friendly and accommodating. Flight was good and on time."
Cons: "I had arrived from Ft. McMurray more than 3 hours before my connection, but was was paged for a search just 30 minutes before my flight boarded. Delays in security meeting me almost made me miss my flight. I didn't understand why they waited so long to do the search. It should have been done when I first got there."
Cons: "The check in process was cumbersome with being able to partially get checked in at a computer kiosk and then having to wait in line to see an agent while other people are jumping the queue and not having to wait... then having stood in line for 10 minutes an agent tells you that you could have been in the "fast" lane... but there is no or little signage indicating which line you should be in.... that's frustrating. Don't expect your customers to be unconsciously aware of all of your convoluted business practices... put some signs out... we at least like a hint. Other than that, for air travel it was a very good experience."
Pros: "Comfortable aircraft. Makes sense to board back of plane first"
Cons: "I was offered water, wine or orange juice but told there wasn't time to offer full beverage options because the flight wasn't long enough. Though the cart was fully stocked. How could it take more time to pour ginger ale than water? Made no sense."
Pros: "It was great"
Cons: "Lack of help with information on transfer between terminals at Seattle/Tacoma"
Pros: "Everyone was very nice and wonderful to my 2 and half year old."
Cons: "I didn't get much help from the stewards with my car seat and my bags. I struggled to get the seatbelt through the car seat. I guess it's not in the stewards job description. And only pretzels for a snack! What happened to peanuts! Need some protein to stave off hunger."
Pros: "The over all experience was great!! The only drawback was the connecting flights were so close we literally had to run to the gate and they had already begun to board the plane. But we made it, just was very stressful."
Cons: "The close connection flight times."
Cons: "Flew first class but still had to pay for internet. We also waited 20 minute in the runway after landing"
Pros: "Crew was extremely hostile and rude"
Cons: "Smile and treat black individuals better"
Cons: "See previous"
Pros: "Fly attendants have no knowledge of hospitality. They arguing with customers and refusing to assist, blaming on company policies. My friends were assigned seats next to a toilet. No folding options. One of our friends has a back pain problems and got stuck for 5 hours. There were seats available upfront and Manager Gina could simply change our seats instead of dry “there is nothing I can do” I am not recommending this airline."
Pros: "See previous comments"
Cons: "See previous comments"
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Yes crew was amazing"
Cons: "May be more frequent hydration"

I called Delta and spoke with Tiffany. She was so helpful. She located my e-reader and I was able to go to the airport and pick it up."
Cons: "Carry brewed decaf coffee."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. No issues. Friendly staff. We had to fill out customs declaration forms but didn’t have a pen. We asked stewardess for a pen and they didn’t have any left. She said to borrow from a neighbor which I thought was rude. We don’t know our neighbors. If a flight requires filling out a form, they should provide enough pens to do so."
Cons: "Not enough pens"
Pros: "When I finally got off the plane"
Cons: "Everything. No instructions, no pens or pencils, ignorant staff. Got to Cancun and waited 2 hours with no directions to just go they immagration. The forms were in Spanish and the staff could not translate. I’ll never fly Delta again."
Pros: "Flight Attendant Precious was just as her name precious and was very impactful in my amazing journey experience."
Pros: "Nothing - missed flight"
Cons: "Need to reschedule flight to tomorrow morning...."
Pros: "Excellent check in and boarding service"

Pros: "Almost everything."
Pros: "I love the aesthetic of the new planes. Boarding was seamless and the staff was great! More cookies please!"
Cons: "Gate agent @ LAX calling every single passenger with a lot of noise around couldn't hear. I had to go and check myself a couple of times."
Pros: "Food was amazing tasted and seasoned well. Not bland, really good salad and chicken."
Cons: "Delay. (liked kayak delay updates tho!) crew not very attending and it looked like they didnt care. In order to keep folks busy because of the delay. They gave out immigration and customs papers out, but refused to give pen. I literally didn't had one and answer from the crew was like that. " Excuse me do you have a pen by any chance?" . "NO! I dont! asked them" pointing out to other crew members, -this is the best part- the female stewardess had clearly visibly a pen in her front shirt pocket! Sitting around and trying to kill time and no pen still. While busy with food and other stuff, i fell asleep. Then after a while when going to the restroom i asked the male steward if he would have a pen please, he pointed out they dont have any pens. ( please note he marked on his check board, who is getting which meal on the first class)"
Pros: "We loved Jaimie and Dana with Delta, two super nice ladies working at check-in and bag drop counter. We were running late and a bit confused, both of the ladies helped us with the whole process, re-assured is that all will be well. They did so with a great genuine attitude. Thank you again Jamie and Dana :)))"
Cons: "More leg room wouldn’t hurt!"
Cons: "That we did not have a seat assigned"
Pros: "Loved having the Movie and tv options on the flight, really passed the time"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked, seat assignment at gate, was very anxiety provoking. I was concerned would not get on flight."
Pros: "Nice upgrade since we didn’t have seats! Delta was a good flight but don’t ever wanna fly on Aeromexico again!"
Cons: "Had all my jewelry stolen from my luggage!"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "The booking was done through vayama and the confirmation numbers didn't match with delta's. It was confusing. I had to talk to a delta rep and give her the eticket # and at that point, she gave me a new confirmation #, that I was able to use to check in with on delta"
Pros: "Flight home was excellent as there was movies to watch and and snacks twice. Crew was great!"

Pros: "direct flight from bdl to cun."
Cons: "reclining seats that doesnt give much room to person behind recliner"
Pros: "The plane was new and very comfortable. Free entertainment and plug for charging electronics. Love this airline!"
Cons: "Your company has the worst customer service ever! You ruined our family vacation and just have horrible policies I can’t believe it! Will never purchase anything off your website again! You suck!"
Cons: "They lost my luggage."
Pros: "great flight free movie going down"
Cons: "no free movie/tv coming back"
Pros: "Terrible customer service both on the phone before the flight, but Especially from the gate agent. Wow she was really horrible."
Cons: "The flight attendants on board were good! They helped get everything straight. Easily could have been handled by the incompetent gate agent. Wow."
Pros: "Outlets to charge your phone and watch movies."
Cons: "It wasnt specified which terminal to go to Aeromexico or delta. Going both ways. I had to pay a 40 dollar taxi to get me to the correct terminal .5 a mile away. And leaving in the early morning it was too dark and they convinced us it was unsafe and a 35 min walk. It’s def would be that long of a walk in Mexico since we had no idea where we were going."
Pros: "The plane was less than half full so I got my own row and slept most of the flight. Chargers and tv screens for each seat"
Cons: "The line for printing the pass was not open. I showed up 2 hrs prior. After dealing with the kiosk for more than 1/2 hour. I missed my flight."
Cons: "could not check in on line as you did not give us the confirmation of the carrier we used which was not west jet the one you booked us through. You need to fix this problem for us to use you again"
Pros: "Entertainment and crew were great- comfortable seats, got to watch a couple of movies with headphones provided by Delta; forgot mine so I assumed I would be miserable thru the whole 4 hour flight. so glad I was wrong! Would definitely take another flight with Delta... looking into the frequent flyer program as we speak"
Cons: "My suitcase was ruined."
Pros: "The crew as well as the pilot gave a lot of information to the customer due to a delay of 10min. Very professional. The pilot even said good bye in person to the customers leaving the plane, I really appreciated it :) The whether conditions in Seattle were very bad (windy, bumpy, rain, and night) and the pilot landed the plane as a pro! Thank you!"
Cons: "Nothing. Delta is the best airline in North America"
Cons: "There was a kid screaming on both flights and t was not a good time"
"See previous comments"
Pros: "Westjet crew are always amazing"
Pros: "Short and sweet."
Cons: "We changed planes in Calgary, and we could have used better signage. Half of our flight got lost and ended up in the wrong gate. We all had to quickly backtrack. Thankfully we had enough time, but if our next flight had been earlier, we could have lost our connection."
Cons: "We paid for transportation to cancun and it didn’t happen. We hope there will be compensation for the lost day. So disappointing."
Cons: "More than an hour late departing. Added to that it was almost an hour before luggage appeared. Not West Jet’s fault but it made us even later resulting in some of our long drive of our drive to Grand Canyon being in the dark."
Pros: "The landing was perfect, in spite of snowy, icy weather"
Cons: "To be on time, delayed one hour"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly!"
Cons: "Westjet connect was not available on this plane!"

Pros: "Westjet is just overall awesome"
Cons: "On both legs the seat was super uncomfortable. Really hard."
Pros: "Great job overall."
Cons: "Very poor customer service"
Cons: "Frequent American Airlines passenger. Found WestJet had far more leg room and plenty overhead storage. Plane was clean and flight attendants where attentive."
Pros: "Good food choices well prepared(even roll& breakfast croissant were excellent) An outstanding premium economy experience n stark contrast to Air France and other NA Carriers. Good wine list great service. Nice service touches like linen for table tops"
Cons: "Amenities on Asian carriers are more"
Cons: "Minor point. They boarded the plane very early. We got to the gate 1/2 hour before departure, and were almost the last ones to board."
Pros: "Boarding was fast."
Pros: "Airplane was comfortable."
Cons: "4.5 hr delay in Hong Kong airport."
Pros: "Crew was great, served us multiple times ! Even tho crew was late 25 mins. We have landed 10 mins early"
Cons: "I would expect that with a 5 and half fight that some sort of food besides ti terrible cookies and pretzel would've been offered!! A very long time to go without food!!!"
Cons: "Don't like having to download app for entertainment....some devices not current enough to download.. Not everyone has devices Kids disappointed..prefer Alaska monitors"
Pros: "Did not fly. But delayed by a while"
Pros: "I enjoyed every bit of the flight"
Pros: "noone booked in the seat beside me allowed for more room."
Cons: "food (ran out of items I wanted) seats are mediocre no entertainment stewardess forgot my cream for the coffee - too busy chatting with another passenger."
Cons: "Seats too narrow"
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "No entertainment option for longer flight?"
Cons: "Choosing my seats without paying extra."
Cons: "I was told I had time to run to washroom before boarding, and 5 min later the boarding area was empty and I was locked out. Plane was ready to leave me because the guy at desk forgot to tell them I wasn’t there yet. Thankfully I was able to hunt someone down to let them know I was there."
Cons: "There wasn't any food to purchase other than a few snacks. That's just not good enough for a 6 hour flight, Really poor."
Pros: "Crew very kind and smily. Very punctual."
Cons: "Prices ridiculous, one coors light 7dollars and with 7 dollars you buy 12 coors light in Mexico!!!. Food really bad and prices worse. No entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was good and the boarding process went smoothly and fast."
Cons: "The screens were so old and bad that it would be a total waste of money to pay for the PPV channels. Seats were hard and unconfortable"
Pros: "Westjet crew is fantastic!"
Cons: "Wish it could have been a longer flight to enjoy the WestJet crew’s hospitality longer"
Cons: "I accidentally seem to have picked a middle seat instead of the window"
Pros: "It is always an adventure flying into Lethbridge....maybe I should leave it at that. The crew both inside the terminal and on the flight were great, the service is great. It’s a very loud ride....if you have noise triggered headaches....I’m sorry. You’re in a flying cigar tube....up close with every other passenger and the open cockpit is a new experience....but totally fascinating too. The pilot and co-pilot are young but very compitant. The weather has a huge impact on your flight because if there is any wind you will get tossed around and the landing in Lethbridge is more of a roller coaster ride. Let me sum it up like this....if your not good with REALLY loud noise, or claustrophobic, or have any motion sickness issues.....rent a car and drive!!!"
Cons: "Don’t need to get there the 90 mins ahead as AC states is the policy, especially if you are on the 5 am flight because they aren’t. I made that mistake arriving at 3:30 am for my 5am flight and no one showed up til after 4am. It was really annoying to not know that ahead of time."
Pros: "The plane was clean, and seating is very comfortable with enough leg room. Its one of the best domestic rides I had."
Pros: "There is no entertainment so why ask.this question repeatedly and I understand on longer flights that is valid but on these flights it is not applicable"
Pros: "The crew and flight was amazing."
Cons: "Checking in was horrible. I stood in line while many of the agents kept chatting with each other. Then when they finally noticed that I was still standing there 2 of them waved at me. The agent who checked me in acted like I was inconveniencing her, she had a really bad attitude."
Pros: "Great service and atmosphere! The crew was so helpful!"
Cons: "I wish you could make the seat space bigger..."
Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "On an 8 hour flight there’s no complimentary meal. I paid for a meal and it was worse than free plane food and starved for the rest of the trip. The chairs were horribly uncomfortable with no lower back support and we were not even given pillows and blankets. There was also no free entertainment. I rented a tablet and had it taken away an hour before landing while I was in the middle of a movie. I might have been ok with that if the flight attendant had politely asked for it back rather than rudely waving and pointing while I stared at her blankly trying to figure out what she wanted. Next time I’ll pay a bit more for an airline that respects its passengers and our comfort."
Pros: "I travelled alone with a baby and all the staff at Westjet wete so helpful"
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and we arrived in Cancun early which was great."
Cons: "The cabin was freezing. I fly often and I always pack a sweater and a blanket but even that couldn’t keep me warm because the cabin was so cold Also, my meal that I purchased on the flight was frozen all the way through. It was literally like biting into a popsicle. My teeth hurt for the rest of the flight after just one bite. I asked for another sandwich which took a while because they were busy with other passengers. My replacement sandwich felt just as cold but it wasn’t frozen solid like the first one. It seems like a minor inconvenience but it became quite frustrating."
Pros: "Staff are friendly"
Cons: "The on board menu only caters to rabbits and squirrels. I get some people like to eat that way but what about the other 80 percent of the population????"
Pros: "The overall experience on my westjet trip was great. Everything west jet does - and all the groups in the airport are fantastic !"
Pros: "A short haul flight"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "The West Jet reps everywhere were calm, cool, and friendly. I thought they were terrific. In Edmonton, the women from West Jet did their best to help and keep the waiting disgruntled passengers informed. In Kelowna, when I discovered my luggage was still in Calgary, the West Jet rep was cheerful and helpful. How could I possibly be annoyed?"
Cons: "Wrong. I ended up in Kelowna."
Pros: "Safe and peaceful flight"
Cons: "A little bit late"
Pros: "Full disclosure, I did not partake in food or entertainment. But I had no issues. The staff was polite, I got on the plane, I got off the plane, end of story."
Cons: "The seats are to small, but that is every economy section that I fly on these days."
Pros: "I really liked the service with West Jet. The people were so friendly and helpful, and that was huge since we were not as familiar with Canadian procedures. After we got on board the flight, I do not remember much since I literally got on the plane and went to sleep. But I was comfortable enough to sleep!"
Pros: "Before taking this flight, I was very nervous because of all the bad reviews on here and other sites. The only good reviews seemed to be by people from Alberta (not really trustworthy, as they seem to support anything that's from Alberta, and note that Westjet is based in Alberta...). But I was blown away by how organized Westjet was and how nice they were. All the flights were on time (I had a few layovers), the staff was helpful....I really have no complaints. Sure, they don't have a plethora of great in-flight entertainment such as movies, etc. But when I fly, I'd rather pay less, have the staff be nice/organized, and just bring a darn book to entertain me. It was a great first flight with this company. I would fly with them again....and I can't remember the last time I said that about any other airline. So do yourself a favor: Don't listen to the bad reviews on here (unless you're obsessed with in-flight entertainment and big-butt first class seats)."
Cons: "The movie and T.V. show selection was bad. But that's not a big deal for me...."
Cons: "Arrived late."
Pros: "Flight on time and professional crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2hrs."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "Check in on line was diffucult and did not include opportunity to precheck a check in bag. Acwaste of time fir everyine in line"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "To have us sit together"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Smelly WC and crew"
Cons: "Seats had even less legroom than the worst US airlines. I'm and 5'8" and I could barely fit my knees and once the person in front of me decided to recline his seat I couldn't even do that."
Cons: "Entertainment or WiFi being available"
Pros: "Nothing. Iberia Airlines employs theives."
Cons: "Two one way tickets were purchased to Cancun. The layover was 2 hours... but since the first carrier was late, it caused us to miss our connecting flight. Because the 2 tickets were from different carriers, the airline charged us $1600 to buy new tickets. I would never buy tickets this way again."
Pros: "Perfect timing, pilots throttled up to catch up on a delayed departure, absolutely bang on. Cabin crew were great. Comfortable seats with recline."
Cons: "Inside could do with a clean, but it was an older 737 workhorse, typical wear & tear. I paid more than expected but I did get a good reliable service."
Cons: "El vuelo salió atrasado . Teníamos acientos en AM+. Incómodos El sistema de entretenimiento no funcionó. Pedimos que lo vean para arreglarlo. Nadie nos acercó con respuesta. Mal trato del personal a bordo"
Cons: "The plane is in terrible shape"
Cons: "Your customer service center is useless. The representatives do not help, they are mean and patientless."
Pros: "There was great service at the desk when I needed to have my flight rescheduled. Friendly staff in flight as well."
Cons: "Having less than an hour to deplane, go through immigration, them security just isn't enough time between flights. I missed my plane as Guadalajara immigration took almost 2 hours at 5:45am. I then had to add another flight to my itinerary. Planes are somewhat old."
Pros: "The entertainment"
Cons: "Lack of snacks, prefer chips"
Pros: "Choice of beverages was good, flight attendants impeccable."
Cons: "I was in Classe Premier. My seat was extremely hard to recline and my let rest wouldn’t extend. Very uncomfortable 2 and a half hours."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Cons: "No announcements for landing. I usually wouldn't complain about arriving early but my shuttle was not available for two hours so the early arrival added that time to my wait time."
Pros: "Quick flight, ease going through customs"
Pros: "Spacious seating, unexpected small meal at 11 pm, Mexican flight staff,(felt like I was in Mexico already)"
Pros: "I didn't have a seat and was upgraded to first class, which was AMAZING."
Cons: "Horrible customer service and delayed all our plans"
Pros: "Food was good. Flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "A horrible flight!!! We arrived at 5:04pm then we sat on the tamarac for 40 minutes before they could find a gate for us!!!! What a horrible lack of management!’ Who runs this airport/airline!? At the end they moved us to completly different terminal!!! Had to find a new transportation to the hotel!!! Again, what a horrible display of management skills!!"
Pros: "We made it"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for two hours. The flight was cold and miserable and today I’m sick."
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "No issues"
Pros: "Surprise first class!"
Pros: "The amenities (entertainment, in-flight service) were limited."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, an attendant asked me if I was staying there. I indicated that I was not, that I had a connection. He clearly knew I was about to be led astray, but he did nothing to prevent it. Maybe there was nothing he COULD do, but if so, why bother to ask?"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly."
Cons: "Aeromexico was unable to provide the boarding pass for our second flight on the itinerary (operated by Delta) when we checked in in Mexico City (our checked bags were tagged all the way to Minneapolis though). They informed us that we would need to go to the Delta ticket counter when we arrived in Cancun (with a short layover). This is an unacceptable level of service."
Pros: "I try to fly on the best airlines due to the service, however the service has gone down"
Cons: "The poor service provided to customers when a flight gets delayed, there was no explanation, no gate, we were walking around the airport without any information and the food voucher barely cover a meal."
Cons: "Got to the airport 2 hours before my flight to fly domestically. Waited 1.5 hours in line. Everyone who worked there didn't give a damn about anyone's situation. This isn't the first time the experience was miserable. I recommend viva or volaris. This airline can't get it together."
Pros: "It was ok from mexico city to cancun"
Cons: "All the bad experience in mexico city only"
Pros: "The plane is very comfortable"
Cons: "Que solo tengan cacahuates y el avión no tenía pinta de haber sido aseado antes de abordar"
Pros: "The crew on this flight was amazing."
Cons: "The seats, my Gawd...felt like I was sitting on marbles. And this priority board issue. Why say you have priority boarding and be the third zone???"
Pros: "attendants heard your grievances."
Cons: "i got there around 5am for a 7am flight. it took those 2 hours to check me in. and then ran to the plane so i would not miss it."
Pros: "Buenas actitudes"
Cons: "Missed flight due to my connection flight being iver one hour late"
Pros: "Seats had the television screen in the seats instead of the monitors that come down from the ceiling. Everyone could choose what they wanted to watch. Good selection of movies and television shows. Airline stewards were nice."
Cons: "All three of our flights were delayed. It was stressful trying to get to new gates and not sure if we would make our flights or not. No explanation why there was delays. However, this worked out to our advantage or we would have missed our flights."
Pros: "Everything - the excellent service continued."
Cons: "That our flight was finished."
Pros: "Aeromexico provides blankets; particularly useful on this overnight flight. The snack - such as it is - is certainly a step above what I get when I fly the same route on United. Also the entertainment system is much better, and free! This includes the flight map, although this was not functioning on the Calgary - Mexico City leg of my trip. Cabin staff are friendly and efficient. I paid extra for the exit row on the Calgary-Mexico City leg. Unfortunately, the cabin crew put another passenger in the seat adjacent to me, so I lost my expected room to stretch out. I'm tall, and this really affected my comfort on this long overnight flight."
Cons: "In-flight map wasn't working. Beer, scotch or red wine are not available, although other alcoholic beverages are available, apparently without charge. Mexico City is a terrible airport to have to pass through. Everyone has to go through Immigration (similar to US airports in that regard) even if just in transit. However, they have few officers there, and almost half of the available booths weren't even manned. The result was chaos, with the immigration hall filled with grouchy travellers, and other travellers stuck in aircraft waiting to disembark. Expect to be stuck in Immigration for a minimum of an hour after landing; maybe plan on 1 1/2 hours just to get through Immigration and Customs. And if you are making a connection, whatever you do don't go through the sliding doors on the other side of Customs - I made that mistake once!"
Cons: "Almost lost the conection at MEX because I was waiting for my baggage, nobody said anything until 20 minutes the bags for the flight stop coming."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket, but the airline changed Equipment to a plane without a first class cabin. I was unceremoniously bumped back to coach and placed in front of two screaming children who proceeded to yell, kick my seat and hit me in the head for the entire flight. Never fly aeromexico"
Cons: "Mexico City Airport Customs and bathrooms"
Pros: "Service from attendsnt"
Pros: "Excellent legroom, friendly service, on time"
Cons: "Delayed for no reason, very irresponsible msnagement"
Pros: "At least this one is on time."
Pros: "It was a nightmare. The reps were confusing and giving different answers"
Cons: "Everything could have been better I spoke to 4-5 AA reps/staff, they were horrible. Need lots of training."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed two hours. We arrived safe but still, the delay creates such an impact on traveler’s plans. AA didn’t even offer bonus miles."
Pros: "Prompt boarding and good directions from the crew"
Cons: "AA cancelled the Dallas flight before this one so they could fill up our flight. This does not seem very considerate of our health during a Pandemic especially with their messaging about social distancing. They also did a very poor job of keeping people patient in the deplaning process. They should have better messaging and a very non threatening way of encouraging passengers to be patient and courteous. Maybe they good offer each passenger a choice some type of goodie like a mint or a chocolate that says "please enjoy this while you wait for others to exit the plane"."
Cons: "Sat on the runway for over an hour. Lack of communication and lies.."
Pros: "Ground crew was great, they kept us informed about our 3 hrs delay"
Cons: "Get a crew in in less than 3hrs Some people has plans"
Cons: "Individual TVs, perhaps"
Pros: "second flight was delayed about 30 minutes"
Cons: "Bring back the individual TV's"
Pros: "Nice Asian stewardess made up for the rude tall bald African-American male Stuart who was snapping his fingers and literally yelling at me for no reason! I turned around and walked away to avoid conflict. He was being overly dramatic and completely rude and several people clapped when I responded"
Cons: "One particular steward mentioned above could adjust his attitude and be polite to his guests. He had no reason to be overly dramatic and excited nevertheless yell at clients!"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic but seats lack padding which agrivated my tailbone."
Cons: "A second beverage service would have nice."
Pros: "Left lake but still made it on time"
Cons: "Aircraft was hot. I volunteered to check my carry on and on other airlines they’d let you board early but the lady just made excuses. It’s fine if that’s policy but I don’t appreciate made up excuses."
Pros: "The cabin crew"
Cons: "The gate agents were utterly rude and unprofessional. If you’re going to be so negative why work in customer service ?!?"
Cons: "I wish my booking came with a record locator for easy check in"
Cons: "Flight delayed 1h30, no food or beverage served!"
Cons: "How is it possible, in this day and age, that American flies a 9.5 hour flight with no individual seat screens, just the 1980's style middle-of the-aisle screen with 2 x TERRIBLE movies?? I know, there are much worse things in life, but an Airline that claims to be SOOO big and great, this is a total disgrace, seriously. And try to explain that to my kids-ages 9 and 10-who had NEVER flown a plane without individual screens (and my son has been already to 20 countries....yes, we fly.) Did I mention that the food is the worse in the industry in this airline? Give me now a reason to keep flying American, please...."
Cons: "1 hour delay boarding then another hour waiting for a Pilot!?"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding system, come located entertainment o/b, non existan food/snacks"
Pros: "Very comfortable, fast, nice staff"
Cons: "They didn’t offer a snack!"
Pros: "We boarded early because of the security check, but that worked out fine. The food was good and the flight attendants were attentive."
Cons: "Spending 10 hours on a flight, but you can't do anything about that."
Pros: "Plane is clean. Well kept"
Cons: "Wifi. It terrible"
Pros: "Timeliness and friendly staff. Arrived before scheduled time..."
Cons: "After getting us lined up for boarding we were told to wait due to maintenance."
Pros: "The flight crew were absolutely marvelous and were wonderful on board."
Cons: "British Airways had too tight of connections on flights that we purchased and then they ran late. Because of this, we had to rebook both going to Europe and coming back. Our friends were then charged extra luggage fees when being put on a domestic flight back home after going through customs. It will be difficult for me to want to use British Airways again because of all the flight change notifications we got before traveling and then once we did actual travel."
Pros: "Premium economy seats/service made the flight much more tolerable than previous overnight flight to Europe. Would definitely fly this class again. Non-stop from Charlotte to Madrid made travel relatively short."
Cons: "However, only reasonable flight options where red-eyes. Would also recommend noise cancelling haedphones."
Pros: "The crew made a real effort to make everyone comfortable."
Pros: "Arrived early in CUN!"
Cons: "Food selection"
Pros: "quick flight"
Cons: "seats are very cramped"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nisy airplane and hard seats."
Cons: "Very narrow seats"
Cons: "Lost luggage for more than 18 hours. Poor costumer service by baggage assistance: Too many issues to even mention it. Arrived in Cancun w/o luggages and connection to Cuba with another airline and no luggages for 2 weeks."
Pros: "Boarded too early and left late. Long delay waiting for bus to terminal in DC"
Cons: "I didn't have enough time and had to rush to get to me connecting flight. It scared me that I might not make it to the terminal and gate in time. thanks!!"
Pros: "We missed this flight."
Cons: "Background info: we flew from Dublin to Toronto (Aer Lingus) and we were supposed to fly Toronto to Los Angeles on American Airlines; however, we had a British Airways flight number for both of these flights. We missed our connecting flight in Toronto with American Airlines (we had a 2 hour layover) despite landing on-time (de-boarded a few minutes late). I suggest avoiding the Toronto airport ALWAYS as every passenger must pick up his/her luggage even if you have a connecting flight, and then re-check the baggage with the next flight. Apparently the baggage handlers were on strike and some of the customs agents as well which added to the delays. Well, after going through Canadian customs and picking up our luggage (which took quite awhile) we arrived at the American Airlines ticketing kiosk about 45 minutes before our flight. The computer told us we were too late for this flight and to see a representative. We proceeded to wait in line for an American Airlines representative only to be told this was Aer Lingus' fault (we had just flown with them); even though we had a BA flight number.. After searching for an Aer Lingus representative we were finally told they were probably all on the Aer Lingus flight that was currently about to leave. An Aer Lingus representative was paged to the ticketing counter (took well over 30 minutes for anyone to show up) and what proceeded was an argument (for well over an hour) between British Airways and Aer Lingus representatives about whose responsibility it was to re-book us. After an hour at least of poor customer service, we were finally rebooked by British Airways on the last flight to LAX (on Air Canada). Moral of the story: avoid Toronto and fly direct."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The food was so so nothing special"
Pros: "The flight was ok with no issues once we were in board"
Cons: "We hot there in plenty of time for our 7 am flight and were bumped to a 12.30 pm flght. When we returned to book in we were being accused of missing our flight. Finally got vhecked in what a pain"
Pros: "Boarding was prompt, flight attendants polite and accommodating."
Cons: "If I am in business class and platinum status, why can't I use the lounge - which is only available to Platinum status going to LA or SF, Latin America but not to Cancun. American Airlines needs to change this policy."
Pros: "Was able to get my flight transferred!"
Cons: "I liked Everything!"
Cons: "The leg room for seats were horrible especially anyone passed 5 ft 7in."
Pros: "The crew and flight was great."
Pros: "Everyone was very helpful."
Pros: "Free upgrade to domestic first class was awesome."
Cons: "Food was meh."
Cons: "I am million miler in Korean air. It's a seven star airlines"
Pros: "Food was fine."
Cons: "Plane was old and didn't include personal screens in the seats, for an 8+ hour flight it should be mandatory. Everything about the plane felt old and slightly dirty, and while flying across the Atlantic, it's slightly nerve wracking to still see cigarette disposals in the bathroom and on the seats (reminding you just how old the plane is)! The boarding process was a bit crazed, we were put on buses in no particular priority order and dropped off at the plane to all board at the same time!"
Cons: "Delayed an hour. Don't think I've had a single American flight on time. No food or movies on international flight. No blankets or pillows."
Pros: "Quickly boarding, crew was extremely polite"
Cons: "No kosher food on board"
Pros: "Top notch airline - staff is personable & comfortable seating"
Pros: "Electrical outlets."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online"
Cons: "No entertainment. There wasn't even a drop down screen for a movie."
Pros: "Not a good experience so nothing"
Cons: "AA failed to allow me to check in at initial arrival in Grande Prairie airport so I had to rush to get a boarding pass in Calgary where the AA agent told me it was not an AA problem and sent me back to WestJet. WestJet discovered that it was an AA problem and returned me to the AA counter where it was resolved. Then I had to rush to catch the flight and missed any opportunity to have a decent lunch between flights. Then there was no food offered on the AA flight to Dallas."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the plane was clean, and all flights left and landed as scheduled. Actually, they landed and unloaded is early! Would recommend if you don't mind paying extra $25 to check a bag."
Cons: "That no checked bags are included in the flight costs. They didn't hide this or surprise me, but just a dislike."
