Pros: "Good seat"
Cons: "Free food"
Cons: "Too many delays including leading the gate due to ground staff leaving equipment behind the plane .... really ?! On the upside - announcements from 1st officer was good"
Cons: "My window seat didn’t have a window"
Cons: "London Concorde first Lounge is old, food and service terrible, toilets dirty. And that is the best they got. Will try to avoid BA and only use if no other option. LH and AF much better in Europe"
Cons: "Hard to get over having to recheck our luggage"
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Nothing - don’t expect too much on short flight"
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "Heathrow’s use of buses to move passengers around is ridiculous for a modern airport. No water offered on flight exacerbated by dehydration from previous flight. All refreshments for a fee. I will not fly BA again if there is an alternative."
Pros: "Quick, smooth flight and a polite captain"
Cons: "Late leaving and arriving and baggage took forever to be delivered to belt."
Pros: "Nice professional crew"
Pros: "Boarding efficient, take off on time, flight smooth, crew professional."
Pros: "On time and smooth flight."
Cons: "We were packed in like sardines. There were no plugs to charge devices."
Pros: "Not yet done."
Cons: "My American partner's passport expires 2 months after our return to the US. Unfortunately, the French issued a year ago the following rule: to enter France, the foreign passport must not expire at least 3 months after the return date. British Airways let us fly to London, explaining this to us, how it would be on us if there were problems further down, and that we would have to get our luggage in London. We chose to fly thinking it would be OK, we had listened to an online person who had had the same problem and the French later told him they would have let him in, also I am myself a dual citizen of France and the US, plus I am autistic, an invisible disability (in my case) that makes it impossible for me to travel alone. I usually do not even say it since not much is understood -by those who do not have it- on how to accommodate it However in London BA did not allow my partner to go on. Due to the fact yesterday was Easter Monday, the American consulate in London was closed. We have spent the night in a nearby motel and now, the next day, I am waiting alone back at the airport with our 2 large suitcases while my partner is at the American consulate. We are poor, do not have phone, currency or charger for England, and I do not do well with stress, so it is difficult. Now we cannot easily reach one another. We hope to be able to fly on a standby basis (that's what BA told us we could hopefully do) later today. Sorry for this long letter, I hope it does not bore whoever reads it (if it is even read :). Anne-Laure"
Pros: "Arriving in Paris"
Cons: "They have a fare that does not charge for Regular Bags....we booked it unknown toy us assuming we each could take a regular bag for no charge....well we have ended up paying an extra 400+ pounds for our bags to go each way to Paris and it has ruined our first time to Paris. The fare online was foreign to us and deceitful being from the US in every way. No one could even work with us or was willing to make a decision but everyone seemed to agree while still charging. No more British Airways Deceipt!"
Cons: "We waited on the tarmac to deplane longer than we were in the air."
Pros: "Love BA airlines. Just be on time get on the plane and they will get you to where you want to go."

Pros: "on time, easy flight, comfortable, fairly priced"
Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "2 of 3 luggage kissed transfer at Heathrow to the Paris flight despite 2:30 hrs layover and arrived on next flight 4 hrs later"
Cons: "We had to go back to philadelphia after flying for 2.5hoyrs, landing at Bangor, waiting for the maintenance team to figure out the problem. We then had to wait for another flight for 4h before being able to go to paris.."
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "My previous flight was delayed at the start and further in flight so I missed my connection. LHR makes too much use of buses."

Pros: "Every thing on time no Daly"
Cons: "Nil"

Cons: "We were mislead on gate assigment which impacted our whole experience. There was no entertainment"
Cons: "We booked online with a major travel booking site and got Much chaper seats than aa offered. However, they wouldnt assign us a seat until at the airport; what a hassle."

Pros: "Comfortable seating"
Pros: "We appreciated the friendliness of the male Flighr Attendant during the boarding process."
Cons: "The landing announcement by the female Flight Attendant was inaudible (too close to the microphone?), and very uninspiring especially for tourists who were landing in wonderful Paris(!!!!!!!) from a 20-hour travel day. Wow."
Pros: "Cabin crew always professional. The cabin was fresh and new."
Cons: "the leg room In club Europe is appalling. No premium feel at all."
Cons: "British Airways didn't have my leg of this flight (London to Paris) as part of original checkin from Austin to London. As a result I stood in Customer relations line for 90 minutes, missed my flight, and was separated from other member in my travel party who didn't experience same problem and we were both on same booking confirmation"
Cons: "Lost my luggage and failed to deliver my luggage on time. I had to go out of my way to buy everything again."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Airplane had a flat tire... thank goodness they changed it before the flight."
Cons: "Flat tire took 2 hours to change, I'm shocked that they are still using this type of Equipment for a trans Atlantic flight."
Pros: "we got on the plane fast,"
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours delay leaving plaen was old and the seats were in rough shape"
Pros: "Saved 5 hours by being changed to a non-stop for the same fee."
Cons: "Working with Iberia to get accessible seating took ten irritating phone calls."
Pros: "Entertainment system functionality and selection was excellent."
Cons: "Tv screen does not tilt so when person in front puts their seat back it makes it hard to see. Probably only a problem in economy."
Pros: "got there alive"
Cons: "booked British Airways, got American Airlines. I didnt want American airlines. I would have booked American Airlines if I wanted American airways. there was no indication that the flight would be operated by any other than British air until I got to the check counter at British airways, and they sent me to the excruciatingly long check in line for American."
Pros: "That it got to my destination, eventually."
Cons: "The co-flight wasn't made clear to me. This was an American Airlines flight as is my return. Beyond the brand and gate confusion that resulted from this, the flight was delayed a couple hours and the plane looked like it hadn't been refurbished since the 70s."
Pros: "The customer service people were very helpful after we missed our flight but it would have been better if they were proactive in helping passengers who had limited time to get to their transfer gates."
Cons: "Reactive rather than proactive staff ... They should have informed us of a fast track lane if there were any but too many were standing around not helping. But the system was terrible ... Maybe it was just that particular day."
Cons: "The seats have zero leg room, it was quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "The food and service was good. The seats in coach were uncomfortable and the entertainment was subar as there were only 8 or so movies no being recent release"
Cons: "The lack of decent movies"
Cons: "I booked a british airways flight and found myself boarding a partner company plane of American Airline with not personal screens, with a very chaotic boarding and had a 40 minute delay."
Pros: "Arrived at my destination"
Cons: "Bought British Air tickets, got their partner airline American Air flight instead and didn't know of this switch until after purchase. Very rude! Crappy old plane, departed late, crappy food, mediocre service. I wanted British Air specifically as they are good in these areas."
Pros: "We landed safely in Paris. Crew were nicer than the one from SFO TO LONDON"
Cons: "Seat not comfortable."
Pros: "For a reasonably priced flight the comfort and free drink/snack were above average and very much appreciated."
Cons: "BA's online check in let them down though; the server kept crashing. They also wanted to charge £15 to pick one's seat, even at point of check in, a tacky ploy to pad profits. Forgiven on this instance as the flight was only 50 min, but would make me think twice for any longer distances."
Pros: "Direct airline"
Cons: "Delay, as usual on this rout because the airplane is too old and always have michanical problems From the inside it looks too old"
Pros: "Well flown comfortable plane."
Cons: "The worst food I have ever had on a commercial airliner"
Cons: "See my earlier comments on the first leg of the flight"
Pros: "Very good overall service"
Cons: "I don’t understand why we had to pay for checked bags. Second, we paid for advanced assignment of 4 seats (middle) to travel together, but one person ended up getting separated; it does not make sense"
Pros: "The flight crew were very friendlly and accommodating. The landing in Paris was the smoothest I've ever had."
Cons: "The guy sitting next to us. He was very messy with his own airport-bought food all over the floor. And very restless and up and down the entire flight."
Pros: "Seat, legroom, nice choice of movies."
Cons: "Crew was stingy with booze. Delta is generous with it. This crew acted like they were paying for it."
Pros: "More room"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Very old airplane used for this route. Upgraded to business but seats and pods are old fashioned, uncomfortable. Newer pods and planes used in other routes make the entire trip more comfortable. The video system didn’t work properly, hard to figure out what to watch."
Pros: "Well where should I start The plane was old and dirty The audio outlet was clogged so I could not listen to music or watch tv The flight was bumpy The crew was overwhelmed"
Pros: "Dinner and boarding"
Cons: "Seats, noise and kids running, walking and CRAWLING in the aisles and lack of wifi and entertainment that I can choose, Also, the bathrooms ran out of paper and the crew was not attentive. They didn't do anything about the kids disruptive behavior and extremely load talking (reciting abc and counting). I asked if they could talk to the parents and they said no, the beverage service was not good as I couldn't get more water and the seats were awful! Why wasnt the wifi working? even if it worked I'd have to purchase it even tho it was an international flight. I will not fly American Airlines again!"
Pros: "Nice crew Spacious plane"
Pros: "The empty sit next to me"
Cons: "The very basic food. Having to argue to get extra water to drink when I got seriously dehidrated The limited choice in movies"
Pros: "Kayak is taking people’s money by selling airlines tickets of airlines that doesn’t exist. I bought tickets for some airlines called Finnair and end up in the worse airline there is “American Airline” this is Not fare for clients, I refuse to flight Americans Airline, if I would have known I would have not buy this flight. 7 hours in a plane with no TV, no free drinks and the worse service. This is a trick, by using Finnair and then end up in AA! There is no Finnair, this is a lie! I am so disappointed about Kayak and won’t use it again. Thank you for rob me and trick me into the worse experience!"
Cons: "The trick the kayak used to put me in American Airlines, the worse Airline there is."
Pros: "The Flight Crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Business class, Boeing 767-300 The seating configuration was 1/2/1 I would give these seats on a scale from 1 to 10 a 5, this was a very basic B/C seat, without a TV screen integrated to the seat in front of you, instead the flight crew hand out individual passenger entertainment systems, that are a pain to deal with and get in the way of everything your trying to do (ie eat, work, sleep.) I’m only 5’9 and I found when the seat was in the bed mode, the seat slopped down very slightly, and your feet would end up underneath the side table to the row of seats in front of you. As i wear a size 13 shoe, i found that space to be rather cramped especially for my feet."
Pros: "They did have lots of entertainment movies, tv shows, games"
Cons: "They ran out of food for the passengers. The loaded and boarded us and then we sat on the plane not moving for an hour or two, making the flight feel much longer. The seats were so tiny and uncomfortable. Made it hard to sit comfortably"
Cons: "How much tighter can they cram us? I'm 5'11" and 185 pounds and was too wide for the seats!"
Pros: "Clean plane. Excellent service. On time."
Pros: "Crew was great. Courteous and efficient."
Cons: "For a long flight the entertainment options were pathetic. Also the flight was 2 hours late. And there were no chargers at the seats so that also limited the entertainment options. The food was too salty and fatty."
Pros: "The actual flight was fine. But leading up to it not so much."
Cons: "Please inform travelers that their passport must not expire within 3-6 months of their trip to France. I was unaware of this and was not allowed on our flight in Philadelphia because my passport would expire in two months. We lost an entire day in France because I had to go to the customs office the next morning and get an emergency passport. I travel frequently, but somehow was not aware of this rule. If I had known I would have fixed the issue months ago. Multiple people viewed my ticket and passport before arriving in Philadelphia and no one caught this error until right as I was boarding the flight to Paris."
Cons: "My flight IB 4190 from DFW to Paris on 11/11/17 @ 17:55 was operated by American Airline. I was denied to pay for my second check in bag for the simple reason that I didn't buy my ticket with American Airline!! According to American Airline agent (Danielle) at the counter, a ticket purchased with Iberia only allow 1 check bag for free and you are not allow to check in an additional bag. I called the travelling agency and Iberia customer service agent (Jose) while I was at the airport. They both told me that I should go with the luggage rule of American Airline which allow passenger to pay for a second bag. Danielle refused to talk to both agents I called. I need someone to tell me how my luggage can be send to me to Paris please. I had a very bad experience with this trip. Please help clarify the discrepancy!"
Pros: "On time, good service."
Pros: "Extremely nice and helpful lady at Philadelphia airport self-service kiosks sorted seating and frequent flyer number out for me, I noticed she really was helping everyone who was working on their tickets and I was completely impressed. The cabin crew and pilots were very professional as well."
Cons: "There were one or two staff members phoning it in but even they were basically pleasant to deal with. Overall I'd definitely fly American again. It reminded me of the simplicity and professionalism of flying in the early 90s."
Pros: "Flight was supposed to leave 5:45 PM , they let us board the plane right on time, then we stayed waiting on board for half an hour, there was zero communication from staff or the captain, then suddenly they asked us to leave for no reason whatsoever, we waited and waited, they decided to move us to Gate 1 instead and had us wait for four hours, they served us little food, and told us wait for AA to provide a new plane. we were delayed for four hours, flight left 10PM. very very dissatisfied, never ride with AA or Iberia"
Cons: "I need a refund for this flight. it was a horror, 4 hours of delay with zero communication."
Pros: "I like the fact that it was a nonstop flight and the food was OK"
Cons: "The entertainment needs to be updated! They're should be individual TVs on a long flight overseas. On the first flight going to Paris there was no Wi-Fi which sucked!"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Tiny plane, old. No leg space at all (I'm 5.5). Our connection before this flight was a 1 hour flight on a modern very spacious airplane, we wished we could've flown on the same plane for the 6+ flight to Paris."
Pros: "Crew were very efficient and kind."
Cons: "It was very cold the entire flight."
Pros: "Great crew. Nice passengers."
Cons: "Food not so good"
Pros: "The flight was equal to AA service I have had on a regular basis."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "This was one of the best crews I've ever had on a flight. So helpful."
Cons: "Didn't like having to get rescreened for a domestic flight after going through customs."
Pros: "I Was expecting a bad flight being an aa plane but it was honestly one of the best flights Ive ever had. Modern and clean plane with awesome entertainment. Kind staff, tons of snacks and yummy food"
Pros: "The American Airlines crews and people manning the desk erred very professional. Yes, this particular flight was conducted by American for Iberia under a share code. So whatever horror stories you have heard of about European Iberia flights, the one I took was fine. But the airline's crew is being let down."
Cons: "In Chicago, our flight was delayed at least three hours for a "GPS update." The crews said the software wasn't even handshaking. Okay. But I have a feeling this is common, and wish the airline would figure out a way to conduct updates, safely, without impacting everyone's schedule. My wife flew through same connection on the same airline a week later. And her flight was canceled. Maybe for the same issue? Unsure. It could have been a a bad luck streak."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, the window had a leak, the TV was too far away and the sound system to watch the movie was broken. When the plane is in that poor of a condition, it's time to replace it. F."
Pros: "Everything great. Rate food and entertainment moderate because there was no dinner, which we did not require, and we went to sleep so didn't pay attention to entertainment."
Cons: "Check in at Paris took 2 hours to get through passport control and baggage pick up."
Pros: "Crew are saving a bad experience"
Cons: "Space are laughable Food is bad If I have a choice, I'll not take an american airlines for any international travel"
Pros: "The flight crew was professional, friendly and competent. They served the dinner as early in the flight as possible."
Cons: "This was a plane with central screens along the aisle, and the airline chose to broadcast a sci-fi action movie with almost constant flashing blue light, and violent action scenes. This was first of all a movie that many people, including me, would never choose to watch, but since it was on the aisle screens there was no getting away from it. It was also unsuitable for children, even without sound. But mainly, I object to the showing of any film in that situation - only aisle screens available, and on a night flight where most of the passengers are trying to sleep. I was awakened several times by the flashing lights. Other things: one of the bathrooms was not very clean, and the plane felt like the usual cattlecar, with just 3 seats on each side of the aisle, which is unusual and unpleasant for a transatlantic flight."
Pros: "There was a female flight attendant who was extremely rude and coarse with everyone on the flight. It was painful to watch and annoying to experience. I will pass on BA in the future. People who dislike other people should not be placed in customer service roles."
Pros: "The crew and captain were lovely and communicative."
Cons: "Our plane was very old and there were engine problems that kept us grounded for hours at JFK. I was terrified the entire time we were in the air that something might go wrong. Additionally, the air conditioner worked very poorly."
Pros: "I loved the delay."
Cons: "Sits are very tight."
Pros: "Airline crew was good. Attendant was appreciative for my daughter translating for her. There were two passengers who did not speak English. One spoke french and the other Spanish. The food provided was tasty."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable, not enough leg room, too small ( I am a smaller person.). Did not like that could not reserve seats in advance without paying $50. Spent almost an hour with agent to get two bags checked for free. Iberia flight operated by American allowed two free bags. Agent took awhile to discover this was correct then she got locked out system. There was no regard that we had a flight to catch. No individual TV's."
Pros: "Food was decent"
Cons: "Informed VERY late that flight was delayed. Kept on being told a different time and then the flight was further delayed! Over 3 hours delayed. No movie on the flight."
Pros: "The boarding was quick"
Cons: "I am surprised that an 8 hr international flight, had no WIfi.. I had to continually ask and check the time with Crew members. This needs to change when the average seat is $800-900 and the flight holds 35 seats. AA is raking in WAY to much money to be this cheap. No WiFi and having to look up to the middle isle to watch a child's movie on repeat " Guardians of the Galaxy." My neck and back were in extreme discomfort from the 8 hr flight back to NYC. If AA had headrest monitors and WiFi this could be avoided. Its 2017 stop being cheap!"
Pros: "GREAT CREW! PILOT MADE UP TIME IN THE AIR DUE TO YHE DELAYED FLIGHT OUT OF MIAMI"
Cons: "THE FLIGHT WAS DELAYED DUE TO BAD WEATHER IN MIAMI."
Cons: "This is our honeymoon! Every single blessed thing you sent said British Airways, but it was really American. Ended up at wrong terminal. Staff uncaring, plane cramped, seat reservation not honored. The worst. You will be getting a letter on your deceptive practices and I am going to bury you on social media. Kevin Howard"
Cons: "4 hours delay and a plane with no tv or any kind of entertainment."
Pros: "Everything was smooth and organized. The flight even arrived early. Friendly crew and comfortable seats with extra leg room (but these were too expensive). Food was quite good for airline fare."
Cons: "Fee for more legroom."
Cons: "Because our first flight was delayed so much, we missed our connecting flight and our rebooked connecting flight (made while on the phone while waiting for several hours on the tarmac) and didn't make it to our final destination until the morning of 6/23 (first flight was 6/21 and was supposed to arrive morning of 6/22). Spent the night in JFK."
Pros: "Kind and courteous crew. Soft blanket for free."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable. There was no internet. There was no power for electronics. There was only one movie option (terrible selection) and the screens were spaced out so far I couldn't have seen it anyway. All of this would have been ok for a short flight but for an overseas flight it was the worst I've experienced."
Pros: "The crew for the most part were friendly. Boarding was easy enough"
Cons: "The one thing that stood out was that the flight attendants weren't offering water outside of the regular beverage service. I've never been on an international flight where there wasn't almost a constant flow of water. I was so parched after 8 hours. It seemed unusual. Also the seats are so small. I'm only 130 and 5'7" and it was a tough ride"
Cons: "Small plane, 6 seats per row, no individual entertainment. Not comfortable for a 7 hour trip."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We purchased seats and they changed them without telling us so we picked new ones. Well guess what, we get to the airport and the same thing. I was seated at the front of the plane and my fiancé was at the back. Luckily a nice gentleman switched seats with me and we were able to sit together but it was the last seats that did not recline on an 8 hour flight. We will never fly American again. Their customer service offered no help and was extremely rude to us."
