My bought this for my mom who is very particular when picking up airlines, she said it was great!

Horrible. Will never fly again.

plane was delayed 1 hour

Cons: "Better food choices"
Pros: "In this age of very tight seating. JetBlue still manages to offer a better seat, a happy and efficient crew and good service at the airport ."
Cons: "I’m a short, average weight woman that felt the space in the bathroom was impossible! There were only two bathrooms for the whole airplane, used both once and I could barely fit in it."
Pros: "Good leg room"
Cons: "Old plane and time for the boneyard."
Pros: "An excellent crew makes the flight so much comfy."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "Nice crew, better planes than Spirit Airlines!!"
Cons: "Multiple delays & gate changes! Arrived 2 hours later than expected- not good for my ride home who had to wait so long!!"
Cons: "Not boarding us 30 minutes late then keeping us at the gate for another 30 minutes after landing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed leaving NYC and when we landed in New Orleans, the gate was occupies, so we had to wait."
Cons: "We were delayed which happens sometimes. I departed gate 26 at JFk the problem with the delay was there was no place to sit during the 90 min delay"
Pros: "Our crew was great"
Cons: "The delay sucked all the kiosks didn’t work 45 minute wait at the help desk bad"
Cons: "Waited to book seat and had to upgrade at 70.00. Feel ripped off. Did not appear to be any other choice."
Cons: "Checking in to the connection flight was horrible. The initial flight was delayed. Once we landed in Florida, customs was apparently backed up so far that we could not leave the plane. It ended up causing us to miss the flight. Jet Blue did provide a hotel and food voucher for the night."
Pros: "Crew was so helpful... even loaned me a phone charger."
Cons: "The flight was delayed after we boarded- originally scheduled to be in time. We sat on Tarmac 1.5hrs before we were able to take off"
Cons: "Pillow and blanket were extra"
Pros: "I made a flight, canceled it that day and booked on a different airline. But, I never got a cancellation email. So all I saw was the JetBlue flight. Last night, I got an email from Kayak telling me to check in so my daughter went to the wrong airport to the wrong flight!!"
Cons: "Why was Kayak not notified that I don't have this flight anymore? I booked 2 months ago...didn't remember the details. Do you know how confusing it is to get a check-in email, after no cancellation email? So when I search my email all that comes up is the flight that was canceled! Bad communication"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "entertainment, boarding-excellent Seat were pretty comfortable"
Cons: "Crew needs to learn better customer service"
Pros: "The flight was relatively quick and smooth."
Cons: "When I boarded the flight the overhead bins were already full so I had to check my bag at the gate. When I picked it up at baggage claim my bag was soaked and my pink bag had black dirt all over it. The terminal had poop on the floor in multiple spots along the main path where people walk, which is clearly disgusting and concerning. Although the flight was fine the combination of these things made it a very unpleasant experience."
Pros: "Just liovrJetBlue! The personnel is always attentive and engaging, quick with a smile and ready to lend a hand when needed. I believe other airlines should try to find out their hiring process and copy their system to get such quality people that understand service."
Cons: "JetBlue is how flying is meant to be!"
Cons: "Blankets are $5"
Pros: "Loved the live TV and spacious room between seats."
Cons: "I didn’t like the weather delay but that’s not JetBlue’s fault."
Pros: "Pilots made for a great flight in horrible weather conditions"
Pros: "Nice crews"
Cons: "Delayed nearly 2hours"
Pros: "Crew was very polite. Good leg room."
Cons: "Video did not work good. video screen small Plain not very clean Extra charge for blankets, pillow, adult beverages."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, crew was very nice, flight was very smooth."
Cons: "I searched and searched forever to figure out how to connect to the WiFi inflight. My phone kept telling me that I was connected but I could not use any apps or connect to the internet in anyway. I looked in the seat back pocket for information on how to connect, nothing. I googled before we took off, nothing. I loved everything else about this flight but this was incredibly frustrating, especially when I was traveling for work."
Pros: "Slightly greater than average leg room, makes a difference! Have not flown much with JetBlue in the past, but I plan to use them more in the future!"
Pros: "Plane was best coach accommodations at no upgrades . . . Ever! Plenty of space, clean, fresh, a Wow!"
Cons: "Delayed departure waiting for catering to show up"
Pros: "I flew JetBlue to and from Costa Rica, which included two connecting flights. All four of my flights boarded, took off and landed on time and in at least one instance, early! The staff are always great, free drinks and snacks, plus personal entertainment for all. One of my planes was brand spanking new - it was gorgeous and oh so comfy! I hope I only have to fly JetBlue going forward!"
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "The JetBlue staff was very attentive, and we reached our location quickly! Definitely will keep JetBlue in mind for future travel."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "I was feeling a bit ill and asked to move to an empty row to be able to lie down, and the flight attendants accommodated my request and were very kind to me. I was then able to nap and felt better after. I'm grateful for their hospitality!"
Pros: "Departure on time. Arrived early. Good snacks, WiFi and TV. Bags arrived easily."
Cons: "Wish there were movies (flight just under 4 hours)"
Pros: "Being on time is the most important thing for me! Thank you for landing earlier."
Pros: "The ticket agent was extremely courteous and helpful. She did her best to get our party of six seats near one another. She even came and found me several minutes after I left her station to hand deliver boarding passes to me."
Cons: "The on-line checkin process was miserable. I spent over an hour and a half attempting to checkin. I received numerous "invalid document" errors. I was unable to check in all members of my party at the same time. I was unable to check in any of the minors in my party due to the fact that I could not check in more than one person at a time."
Pros: "Service was great. Crew was nice. Refreshments were enough for the duration of the flight."
Cons: "Only issue is that you need to pay for the headphones."
Pros: "Crew was awesome, decent leg room, free wifi!"
Cons: "Our plane had a mechanical issue and fixing it caused a two hour delay; the row I sat at had something smelly spilled on the panel below the window that required the crew to call for cleaners"
Pros: "JetBlue is really the only airline that I care to fly anymore. Not only do they get me to my destination on time in comfortable seats but their staff is very accommodating and friendly."
Cons: "Everything was great"

Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "More movies. More breakfast options. And ran out of cookies."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly!"
Cons: "My tv screen didn't work. It kept flashing in and out for the first hour until it finally went black. On the rare occasion that a picture showed on the screen it was too dark to determine what was happening or what I was looking at. This made the ride feel long."
Pros: "JetBlue in general"
Cons: "Seating area was a bit messy. Not horrible but not super clean."
Pros: "Once again, flying Jet Blue was a great experience. The comfort of their terminal at JFK and their spot on service made a long day much easier. And we really enjoy the individual TV screens."
Cons: "The buttons on the TV were a bit glitchy but probably from being used so much."
Pros: "Fast, on time and comfortable. Good"
Pros: "Comfort was very good. The level of communication when things changed was very good. Good crew."
Cons: "It was obvious that they would not accommodate all carry on bags, this could have been announced earlier and allow for mutual benefit to both parties. JETBLUE cards benefits are only allowed to American residents as if they are the only one who supports them in travel"
Pros: "The customer service was great. They compensated me for the delay. The seats were spacious."
Cons: "A 6 hour flight delay. Luckily me for my connecting flight wasn't until the following afternoon. Had it been earlier I would have been extremely upset because it could have derailed my entire travel plans."

Cons: "CheezIts were too salty. We had to sit on NO tarmac for over 10 minutes because a plane was stuck at our gate...several other gates empty - what's up?"
Cons: "Snacks"
Cons: "Person next to me overflowed into my seat…"
Pros: "The crew was attentive."
Cons: "Games on the tv were okay. Tetris would be a nice addition."
Pros: "Flight was early into New Orleans"
Cons: "Flight had a lot of turbulence"
Pros: "The short duration of the flight and punctual arrival. Better seating with more leg space in Airbus than in the horrible Boeing 467- 400."
Cons: "No headsets distributed so I couldn't listen to film program. Crew rather impersonal. I'm dreaming of an airline that uses functioni g loudspeakers during boarding. Nobody understands acoustically which zone is being boarded ( not only a Delta issue)."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Wi-Fi not working or hard to get to work. Flight was delayed by an hour and service was very rushed."
Pros: "The crew! You have great people working for you on these routes."
Cons: "This was an easy flight. Nothing bad."

Pros: "My seat was randomly the exit row, so more leg room and pilots made great time"
Cons: "Left 20 minutes late because of travel agents"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and concerned about us making our connections"
Cons: "The fact that they didn’t make sure all the paperwork was correct and our delay to NO was due to that issue"
Pros: "Great staff, plenty of room, efficient snack and drink delivery, effluent boarding"

Pros: "Easy transition through customs."
Pros: "Crew was kind and helpful. Snacks were great!"
Pros: "Great flight . Even got here early"
Pros: "The outbound crew was terrific. The flight itself was fine. We even arrived early."
Cons: "Upon deplaning in Cancun, ALL passengers are put on a bus and driven far away from the terminals to an arrivals area. Those of us with connecting flights are royally f*cked at that point, especially if your connection is short, as mine was. The so-called shuttle to the departure terminals, which are entire kilometers away, was to arrive in like half an hour. HALF AN HOUR. Who has this time to spare?? The alternative to the shuttle is paying a taxi that charges a hefty fare--and God help you if you don't have cash. The departures terminal was swamped and only thru begging assistance and line cuts did I make my connection...and then only by the skin of my teeth. It was a complete nightmare."
Pros: "Really helpful staff, clean plane, attentive and easy boardiing"
Cons: "The check in was a bit confusing at the airport."

Cons: "Seats are really tight"
Pros: "New aircraft A320"
Cons: "Late,"
Cons: "1 hour flight delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed nearly 2 hours without any compensation to the passengers. I frequently fly jet blue and whenever they are that delayed not weather related the staff frequently gives the passengers a complimentary cocktail. Also your boarding process makes little sepnse to me why board from the front of the plane more sensible to board back to front"
Pros: "The gate person was very accommodating"
Cons: "It was over 2hrs late due to mechanical problems. Seems to be the norm."
Pros: "It wasn’t bad or good."
Cons: "Long delay due to maintenance of oxygen masks issue. Why hadn't this been taken care of with preventive maintenance?"
Pros: "The staff are fun and friendly. One of the hostesses stepped into the vacant seat where I was sitting and stepped back further when people where pushing by. We were almost cheek to cheek. The closest I've come to a cute bum in years."
Cons: "The gratis food offering isn't healthy - those bread pretzels, versus the almond & tomato juice I had on the next flight, with ...can't remember the name."
Cons: "Seating was tight"
Cons: "According to the website and documentation a card holder is supposed to get the first bag free when using this card. I did not, so I will be cancelling the card."
Pros: "They ran out of food on the plane"
Pros: "Personnel and crew handled the problem in a professional manner doing everything in their power to make the best of a bad situation. Another plane was provided within a reasonable time frame."
Cons: "Four hour delay. Boarded and then being told after 40 minutes that the problem was not fixable."
Cons: "No space."
Cons: "Flight was delayed over an hour resulting missing connecting flight"

Terrible ground service. Denied boarding and no refund or reprogramming. Robbed by Aeromexico

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "No really"
Cons: "Was not able to travel because of the virus, I was suppose to visit my parents"
Pros: "Not a lot."
Cons: "Our group of 11 missed our connecting flights in Mexico City because the plane was two hours late. Cost us thousands of dollars and a day of our time."
Pros: "The entire experience was great. Flight was at 1 got to the airport at 1208. They got me and my oversized luggage on the plane in time for take off."
Cons: "The meal was a pasta with no protein. While delicious, along side it’s compliments of a salad, bun and yogurt, it was no bueno for someone avoiding carbs. Obviously a pathetic comment but one none the less."
Pros: "Crew nice"
Cons: "The flight was delayed more than 6 hours...and they just dragged us along one hour at a time, effectively ruining our day"
Pros: "Loved it ... I had a layover and my flight from the other airline was late ... did t have a chance to che k in and Aeromexico printed my my boarding ticket at no cost and saved me time to catch my flight !"
Cons: "Awesome"
Pros: "Although the plane was old, I found the seat to be very comfortable"
Cons: "Entertainment was pretty much nonexistent. Plane was old and legroom tight."
Cons: "This part of the flight was good, Mexico City to Los Angeles was terrible."
Cons: "Nothing was good"
Cons: "I have nothing to complaint about Aeromexico is truly a good airline, friendly and. Has good customer service. We were very satisfied with our flight. Thank you"
Cons: "We could have left on time, not an hour 1:35 hrs late. The passenger next to me could have taken a shower to kill the super strong body odor. My seat could have reclined and The entertainment could have worked. But none of there happened so it was a very uncomfortable flight."
Cons: "Very happy, excellent!!"
Pros: "Crew was really friendly"
Cons: "We didn’t arrived as planned"
Pros: "Lots of free entertainment options. Easy USB locations where you can charge your phone. Somehow got called to cut line and board right away. They provided food (though had I known, I would have ordered vegetarian)."
Cons: "Some turbulence"
Cons: "The flight attendants they have attitude really bad I think u guys should check your employees."
Pros: "Hate it the flight."
Cons: "Terrible flight.We should of have the opportunity to sit closer to the the front of the plain considering that we were a family of six with little kids all under the age of 10."
Cons: "I actually arrived early, which turned out to be a mistake, because Aeromexico moved the gate to the farthest possible new gate location while I was away getting a sandwich, which was itself delayed. When I noticed the change, I ran to the new gate and waited 10 minutes while they talked to the boarding people, who wouldn't let me on. After several hours of bag retrieval, having to buy a new full price ticket, having my cards declined due to the price and circumstances, having to go through 2+ wrong directions for each step of the process, determining that maybe one employee in five could speak even minimal English in an international airport, I finally got on a Delta flight. In sum, won't be flying on Aeromexico in future."
Cons: "Boarding process. The Zone lines are formed a very long time before boarding really begins. Why?"
Pros: "Crew was very nice, twice beverage this is good but I miss the cacahuates japoneces."
Cons: "Airplane look little old , clean and comfort, but sound a lot when departing... that is creapy Checking was slow only 2 people"
Pros: "They were pretty much organized."
Cons: "The food. Some Mexican touch could be appreciated."
Pros: "We boarded fast and we arrived on time"
Cons: "I requested a "Fragile" label for my suitcase. They said they ran out of them. When I came back home, they had break 2 memories. One of them from the conference I taught. I tried to wrap them as tight as possible. I am aware of the risks of carrying fragile things but I can't stop thinking that the label might had helped avoiding things getting break. Flight Attendance were not very friendly. They were not rude but defiantly not friendly"
Pros: "I loved the food and the movies"
Cons: "The pilot landed really bad i almost return all mu food"
Pros: "It was on time"
Pros: "Everything once we boarded"
Cons: "Customs, Mexico City airport was awful. Had to deplane on the runway, load busses, wait,wait some more. Super long lines to get through customs. Wrong info on departure gate. No signs, very poor information."
Pros: "It was a very good fare in terms of biz class"
Cons: "Food was terrible . Drink selections terrible, bathroom dirty , service was not good at all"
Cons: "We were delayed 7 hours and offered $10 USD in food to compensate"

Cons: "My shoes were stolen"
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: "That I got there on time."
Cons: "Over booked the trip and got stuck in the Mexico, missing a 1 at work."
Cons: "Too many gate changes. They changes gates atleast four times for each flight. And long wait(more than an hour for each flight) at the boarding queue.Even the business class seats were very dirty. No vegetarian food. The TV remote did not work. And there were only 4 movies in the entertainment section and nothing else. No TV series or any other videos. The crew was courteous. That was the only good thing about the flight. Highly disappointed."
Pros: "Confortable seats, food on board and free! Nice service"
Cons: "Mexico Airport can be confusing. You have to be prepared to ask Aeromexico’s staff for help. They are very helpful though!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought a Business fly, they change the aircraft, no motive in advance. And they del did not offer nothing. Moreover, they try to hide it and denide, to see if you do not react."
Cons: "Amazing flight"
Cons: "The sits were to close to next line and the sitting was so hard and flat as on a wood bench, almost no cushion."
Pros: "The crew was really nice"
Cons: "The plane does not have any entertainment"
Pros: "I like that you can bid extra to upgrade to 1st class. It was well worth it to have better seats and more room. I liked the entertainment options. There was a lot of movies I wanted to watch."
Cons: "unfortunately the seats didn't fold flat or have a zero-gravity position. The food wasn't any special."
Pros: "Inside the plane the food (COLD SANDWICH) has a horrible and monotonous taste . Outside the plane the service is poor. You meet aggressive people without any clue of courtesy. I saw disable passenger without any attendance when wheelchair was requested.They don't have any idea that you are part of a business industry with many competitors. I will never recommend in my community to use your services. You are the worse of the third world."
Cons: "I experience an incident that affected emotionally my family. One hour after depart from Mexico City, the fly attendance announce that we need to land in Guadalajara for safety/security reason. You removed a youth passenger without any strong and fair reason, because he was unlucky this day: He was accommodated together with 2 members of a middle east family that was logically to be filled by the 3. he touch friendly the kid near him and his father that was in different place??? react negative against this normal gesture of the youth passenger. Why you didn't put the entire family together from the beginning?"
Cons: "It took 50min literally to be able to get off from the airplane after it had been landed on time because it was raining so hard and the airport could not send us the step machine. So I lost the original flight and kindly Aeroméxico changed to the new flight. But that flight was delayed also. It was a bad experience totally."
Pros: "The food and drink"
Cons: "First of all flight attendants were unfriendly and trying to sell lotions to sell watches and lotioMexicons like if you were in a flea market."
Cons: "I dint like the atention of the travel agent because I could not change the return and had to buy another tiket for my return, and Im afraid that would be a problem to ask him to reused my portuon , I didnt used."
Pros: "Flight was only minorly detailed (this is a major plus for Aeromexico, which is ALWAYS late)."
Cons: "Flight was minorly delayed"
Pros: "This was my first experience with Aeromexico and i loved it. Everyone was nice and the plane was nice. Loved it."
Pros: "La amabilidad y la atencion."
Cons: "La música muy aburrida."
Pros: "It was long, but the airline made everything smooth for the trip"
Cons: "Food was bland and 1st class was similar to a domestic flight to Fort Lauderdale from NYC"
Cons: "Price, airline & convenient."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "Nothing to complain about"
Pros: "The crew was attentive and friendly. The seat was relatively comfortable. My special meal was good."
Cons: "I was frustrated with the entertainment system. I watched one film, and that was fine, but immediately after, I could no longer watch anything, even the film I watched previously, and it turned out that something had happened to all of the screens in my central section. Even after rebooting the system, it would not work again."
Pros: "Information easily available staff friendly"
Cons: "The seats on the plane are so hard they cut off circulation in my legs . I fly everywhere and never have this issue. Soften up those seats a bit"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was awesome. Very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The cabin temperature was cold and the flight was delayed by over an hour."
Cons: "Food and wheelchair service dropping me off at inappropriate place & no wheelchair to continue through passport control to Heathrow express train"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight should have been on time rather than 2 hours late. The Gate agents should have been more honest about what was happening."
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Kayak.com overwrote the passenger name with an incorrect name. Neither Kayak.com or lastminute.com could correct this which resulted in me losing approx. £600 and taking the issue to the small claims court."
Pros: "Service manager Alan and crew were lovely, very friendly and felt genuinely happy to help us. I have never been given so much free stuff on a plane before! The snacks and beverage offerings just kept coming. I enjoyed my warm meal. Entertainment offerings were good, and as we were on a newer plane the technology was better than other flights I’ve been on."
Cons: "Seats could have been a bit more comfortable and roomy, but they were decent and I didn’t have too much trouble sleeping."
Pros: "rebooked onto another flight due to missing connecting flight in london"
Cons: "Flight cancelled and we will miss Christmas Eve Dinner"
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "This route needs a bigger plane. Always packed. Only a few rows of business class. Took off nearly an hour late. Economy on BA is very much a budget airline experience."
Cons: "The plane was warm which became uncomfortable for the second half of the 9 hour flight. Also they had some issues with double booked seats and having to move people around which delayed takeoff. The staff did a good job of making the best of a bad situation thoug."
Cons: "Check in with British at LHR very bad and slow"
Pros: "Price and prompt and timely boarding."
Cons: "Old airplane, old entertainment system, below average food on the LHR-IAH leg and charging for food and drinks for the IST-LHR leg which is over 3 hrs."
Cons: "I had to get off the plane."
Cons: "No power plugs/usb ports. Very small, poor quality screen. Not much bigger than my iPhone."
Pros: "Highlight of the trip was BA's inflight safety video."
Cons: "I took a BA flight after a while. I had stopped flying BA in flight service and comfort was poor. I travel business class. Seats were dated (seat cushions), plane was dated, inflight entertainment systems dated (compared to most other airlines). Crew goofed up on food. I had a seat change which I informed the Sr Purser who came to take food order, his colleague who came to serve drinks. Still the server gave my food to the other passenger who had requested to change seats. Which resulted in no food for me. They clamoured some meal fro economy class and served so shabbily (only a pic can show how shabby it was - unfortunately I can't attach one here). In spite of all this the purser showed no remorse or offered no apology. I think I made a mistake in choosing BA, should have never come back to them."
Cons: "My checked bag didn't make it from Barcelona to my destination (new orleans)."
Pros: "Good staff and food"
Cons: "Seats could have been better"
Cons: "Carrier was small. Crew could have been more helpful and courteous."
Pros: "Pilot gave good communication of flight progress, and arrived early."
Cons: "Slow boarding and disembarkation processes."
Cons: "They knew that they were going to delay the flight so that they can add the next flight to the 6.45 pm flight. @ least we should have been notified or something."
Pros: "Entertainment system worked well and had good selection of movies"
Cons: "Armrests didn't go up which is a problem with a toddler needing to sleep. Seat was broken so that pressure would make it lean back. Left over an hour late."
Cons: "Late BA flight made sure I had to wait 7 hours to catch and EVA air flight. I want my money back. I paid 1000 to flight British Airways not to be crammed on a flight as a show away. Super uncomfortable seat on EVA and a terrible experience. I fell on the plane."
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "When trying to check in online the day prior, the British Airways system was unable to load my reservation. Upon arrival to the airport, the rather unambitious fellow at the check-in desk refused to look up my reservation and instead insisted that my flight was in fact through American Airlines. After waiting in yet another queue, I was sent back to British Airways, where it was confirmed that Iwas booked on the flight, but that it would be to late to check my suitcase. I am still at my city of origin in London as I write this review."
Pros: "No lines."
Cons: "Impossibly poor online servicing, most unsympathetic, unhelpful and ignorant check-in, sales personnel w manager to match. If you take a hard-line to sympathetic, injured, elite member that s my 91-years-old father. And fail to provide most basic information of local scheduled flights you might just leave oneworld and let up-to-task risen stars add to the alliance (instead of abusing her standing as BA does. Shame on you."
Cons: "The credit/debit card machine didn't work on half the cards. It took about an hour for anyone to get food or a drink. The staff was more preoccupied with selling things than picking up the rubbish. It only takes a minute to walk down the aisle collecting cups and bottles. Some people never did have their items collected before the three hour flight ended."
Cons: "it departed late and with the fare I paid not even free water was served."
Cons: "The plane was old with worn furniture, torn material on seats, and non functioning entertainment system"
Pros: "Good legroom and lots of space on the plane"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The crew was ON TOP OF IT."
Pros: "Check-in was very easy and actually quiet compared to the rest of the airport."
Cons: "When we walked into the airport (upper floor), I didn't see any signs directing me to British Airways. We walked a long ways and finally asked someone who said we must go downstairs. More signs would help."
Pros: "The flight to NO was good. Service was good as well."
Cons: "The seating was much more cramped than the flight to Ireland. Very tight quarters for a 10 hour flight. Other than that, it was good. We arrived safely and that's the best feeling ever!"
Cons: "Worse experience ever!!!!"
Pros: "London to New Orleans direct is an excellent route."
Cons: "Food was poor."
Pros: "Connection desk and gate attendance were the only people who tried to help fix the mistakes made by the people in madrid. Global access allowed to quicken our time spent going home after the mets that was our flight home."
Cons: "the attendant at the connection desk did not understand why we had not been given boarding passes or allowed to check in to our flights in madrid. the gate attendants did not understand that even though we were numbers 72 and 73 person processed we were not allowed to check in, receive boarding passes or allowed to sit next to my sister who's reservation was connected to mine"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was a sardine in a tiny tin for 10 hours."
Pros: "The flight attendants on this flight where the best I've ever had!"
Cons: "My Entertainment device was broken"
Pros: "My mother is disabled and the crew were ALL so helpful and kind. Amazing!"
Cons: "Had to purchase even coffee, no complimentary anything."
Cons: "I WANT TO CAHNGE TIME OF FLIGHT. BRITISH ASKED TO HIGT PAYMENT. IN THIS AMOUNT I CAN BUY TWO TIKETS IN LOW COAST COMPANY AND I HAVE ENOUTH MONEY TO BUY FOOD. PERSON THAT BUY TIKET FROM THE SITE CAN'T CHOISE A SITE AND ITS COME AUTOMATIC WITHOUT TO CAHNGE/"
Pros: "Nice plane. Great movies"
Cons: "Breakfast poor quality. Disorganised boarding"
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "very crowdy with suitcases on the board"
Cons: "The sign said it would board by rows but they did general call and it was ridiculous on a flight this large. Nothing"
Pros: "The aircraft was much newer than the cramped old BA plane we took on the way to London. Much more comfortable- a bit more legroom. Screens in seatbacks for TV/movie viewing rather than the old laptops we were given on previous BA flight. Friendly flight attendants and food was great. Made for a very pleasant international trip!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "after 8 hours of delay after delay. Flight was cancelled. No flights available to New Orleans until the next day at 4pm. Had to be at work for payroll responsibliity. People counting on me for their paid. Hope I find another airline to make it home. Slept in airport with on place to go or eat"
Pros: "I actually slept the whole way."
Pros: "Great gluten free meal. Personal entertainment screen with great variety."
Cons: "As a guy with a 36" inseam, the seats were pure torture. Limping past the beds in first class on the way out was very irritating."
Cons: "We sat on the runway over an hour because they couldn’t get a proper flight plan. Such a waste of time and I felt so bad for those who had connecting flights"
Pros: "Nice and easy flight"
Cons: "They claim to be cleaning these planes but I find that hard to believe when there is Gum on the window sill. We were also delayed quite a bit in the boarding process. Also I would imagine that during Covid-19 these companies would do a better job of not overbooking flights but all of my flights with American this past weekend were overbooked. Which delayed us even longer as they searched for volunteers to adjust their flights. In today's age of technology the idea that they are still overbooking planes makes no sense to me in the slightest. I will be walking, driving or taking a boat before I fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Our flights got delayed from Belize city and lost all connections. Had to sleep in the airport. Very disappointed with American Airlines. Will avoid in the future."
Cons: "Bumped from first class to coach."
Cons: "WiFi"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Not a lot. Entertainment options on board were decent. Food was alright."
Cons: "Everything! Crew were terse, rude and inattentive. Due to an issue with a bag on board without the associated passenger we had to taxi back to the stand for it to be removed before we could take off. This cost us an hours delay. There was limited apologies for this, no refreshments provided during the wait and poor communication of this. During the flight the staff were inattentive and sparing with refreshments. Service generally did not live up to expected level associated with an inter-continents flight. The flight was turbulent but crew and captain seemed over cautious with it and crew had to remain seated unnecessarily at times and at the detriment of passenger service. One stewardess wouldn’t even let me finish a drink before removing it from my hand claiming we were about to land and she had to sit down because of turbulence. We were still 40 mins from landing at this point! All in all a pretty bad flight, and it’s safe to say I won’t be flying American Airlines again."
Cons: "The salad was included two unmentioned items that were unwelcome: bleu cheese and pasta."
Cons: "Everything, especially an AA customer representative. Very rude, inconsiderate, and unprofessional."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight delayed due to lavatory door not closing. Then+0, 20 minutes of papaerwork. Followed by no one able to operate bridge when landed for 20 minutes."
Cons: "Delays,"
Cons: "Poor comfort"
Pros: "Almost nothing."
Cons: "Communication in delays (we ended up being delayed for 13 hours in incremental delays), poor planning, lack of knowledge at the operations level around how long crew has worked, boarded the plane then unboarded the plane as the pilot decided he wanted tea, staff unempathetic and dismissive"
Pros: "During boarding the first class cabin attendant gave me water so I could take a pill I had forgotten."
Cons: "Lav could have been cleaner. Boarding area at airport is small and crowded for all airlines. Stairs to aircraft instead of ramps."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful!"
Cons: "There were no headrests for sleeping or TVs on thr airplanes. Also the flight departure time kept getting pushed back and ended up leaving over and hour late as did our last flight with american."
Cons: "Paid for upgraded seat with complimentary drinks that I still got charged for."
Cons: "They lost and cant track my baggage. Very poor customer service."
Cons: "How does a ground crew not know a plane is coming in late. How is there no one here for baggage. It's a joke."
Pros: "Flight was okay"
Cons: "That I ended up having to deal with AA for everything"
Cons: "inadequate ventilation"
Pros: "Free upgrade despite the delay so it was great."
Pros: "LOVED the spacious leg room on that aircraft!"
Cons: "The lady beside me and everyone else listened to her audio book."
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "This new low life category where you cannot even pay to be treated like a human."
Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half. My audio jack was broken and regardless, it will still trying to charge me for everything even though i was force to be squashed between two people who are also frustrated about sitting doing nothing."
Pros: "Attendants are always friendly; always a peaceful travel event"
Pros: "Travel time"
Cons: "No snacks on flight. The charging stations come in between legs space and very uncomfortable they got to be re adjusted. Make sure these are taken care in upcoming flights."
Cons: "American has the smallest seat space out of any airline I have been on and it is heinous."
Pros: "it was a bit bumpy all the way to NOLA, but we still got drinks and snacks, and flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Thank you"
Pros: "The 777-300 is a beauty. So spacious! Traveling in the main cabin of this plane feels like you're in first class compared to other planes. Great in-flight entertainment. Clear communication from captain and crew. Overall, the best plane ride I've had in the last 5 years."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed a little unorganized but not a huge deal."
Pros: "Cheap fare"
Cons: "American advertised free TV and movies streamed to your device via a card placed in the seatback pocket and in the flight attendant's announcement. Although the card stated, "This Flight. Free Entertainment..." I was informed that there was, in fact, no such feature."
Pros: "Cabin was clean. Flight attendants were courteous."
Cons: "Their snacks were merely a cookie which was okay, but not what I would have wanted."
Cons: "Middle seat and one of the last ones on. Enough said"
Pros: "I made it safely to my destinations and in a timely manner."
Cons: "The lack of space to breathe. Being herded like cattle to our seats. The fact that in flight service BARELY made it to the back of the plane before we landed."
Pros: "The entertainment system. It was awesome. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Nothing notable."
Pros: "Pilot was very communicative, which was great but plane was 1 hour late and we had a mechanical problem while taxing, pilots fixed it while still on the ground. Not their fault those planes are 35 years old, come on!"
Cons: "Stop flying MD80's, please! 35 year old planes!"
Pros: "American did a good job. DFW concourse was ice cold and the speaker system was terrible could not understand a word she said. Very obvious DFW is outdated and tired airport."
Pros: "The flight assistants were nice"
Cons: "The entire flight from Miami to New Orleans, the ac felt like the heater was on. I was sweating and felt nasty."
Pros: "Easy to navigate site. Was given Pre-check on one leg, which was nice."
Cons: "Had to purchase a seat on one leg, resulting in an extra $12. That was a surprise."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought some items when I was in Belize I get to Dallas to check my items into my bag and American Airlines has one person checking in bags and one guy standing in the hallway with a red coat on telling us where to go so I stood in the line for and hour and ended up loosing my items and missed my flight so I'm on a seven hr wait cause American Airlines can't get bags checked in on time"
Cons: "The original flught flight was delayed and we had to wait in a long slow line, however , once we got to desk , the agent was very nice and we had already been rebooked on an Alaska flight. So we never ended up going to Phoenix. The resolution was acceptable but it made for a 12 hour travel day instead of a 4 hour travel day."
Pros: "Captain and crew were capable and friendly."
Pros: "I loved the price more than anything else. All the staff were friendly and professional. Every flight was on time with no delays."
Pros: "they cancelled the flight and they did not say anything, then the crew in the airport were very rude with everyone."

Pros: "Mostly everything"
Cons: "More snack options."
