Pros: "Terrific food, not the same old stuff! Professional staff with a great attitude! A little extra legroom never hurts!"
Pros: "The planes are comfortable, the entertainment has plenty of options and plugs for your chargers if you want to use your own. The staff are friendly and very attentive. Emirates understands service. We had one cabin crew (on our flight to New York) named Amor who was was “on it” - attentive, helpful...everything you want on a long-haul flight!"
Cons: "This isn’t Emirates’s fault, but it took over 45 minutes (after we had come through passport control) for the bags from our flight to come out and we almost missed our train into Milan. But that is the fault of Malpensa airport."
Pros: "Entertainment Staff"
Cons: "Delayed 40 min Long time for luggage"

Pros: "Magnificent plane lots of space friendly crew."
Cons: "The person behind me was kind of irritating"
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful, seats were comfortable, entertainment options were plenty, and food was excellent. Would definitely fly again and recommended to others."
Cons: "Check in process was a little slow, since they do not have self service kiosks for those who are not checking bags. However, ticket staff was very friendly and helpful. Boarding was a tad chaotic, since they do not have separate lines for each group."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection. Nice quality blankets. Flight wasn't overbooked. Leg room. Complimentary wine."
Cons: "We were delayed 2 hours on the runway. Temperature got hot during the night."
Cons: "Our flight from Boston to JFK in Ny was delayed an hour. We got to JFK and ran from the plane to the terminal and they had already closed the door but the plane was still there. They wouldn't let us on the flight and it ended up even being delayed for 30 minutes! We talked to JetBlue and they said they couldn't do anything for us so not only did we miss out on a day in Italy, we lost our a ton of money on all the things we booked for Tuesday. We also then had to get a hotel in ny and everything was booked so we almost had to sleep at the airport but luckily we found a place that had a last minute opening. Still was super expensive and no one helped with a "destressed rate". Now we have to wait until 10 again tonight to try to catch the plane to Milan because Emirates only has one flight a day. This has been the worst travel experience I have ever had."
Pros: "Well trained crew, layout of aircraft and comfort, wide choice of entertainment, smoothness of ride"
Cons: "boarding was rather disorganized mob scene"
Pros: "ICE entertainment system was of high quality."
Cons: "First, the seats were very small and uncomfortable. I had trouble sleeping, and, the seat was stuck (couldn't move back). And second, the food tasted horrendous. I have been on many flights, and this was perhaps the worst meal I've ever had. The coffee was bitter enough to make me gag (even after I added cream), and the chicken was flavorless. The boarding process was a mess. It was hectic and unorganized. The flight was delayed an hour, and the crew failed to provide an adequate rationale as to why. Speaking of the crew, they weren't helpful. At one point, I had asked to use the restroom, and I couldn't get in. Again the crew provided no rationale as to why. Then, a few HOURS later, a lady approached me and said I could go "very quickly". This was my first time flying with Emirates and I don't think I'll be flying with them again."
Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "It was an overnight flight but they serve dinner don't turn lights off then other passengers are shaking you awake to have you put ur seat up this was unacceptable"
Pros: "Excellent selection of entertainment"
Pros: "The flight was so nice! I landed on time, the food was good. I loved it the fact that I could charge my phone, have a good amount of tv show and movies to choose from. Comfortable seats. Yep I would recommend and I would flight with Emirates airlines again"
Pros: "Had a wonderful trip with many pleasant surprises - kind and efficient crew, tasty meals and a variety to choose from, cameras to see the outside at all times, and special treats for kids (photo, travel pack, meals, etc). Looking forward to the next trip on Emirates!"
Pros: "I like the confirt and the on time flight."
Cons: "As I'm pilot and being my first flight in a A380, I would like to visit the plane what was denied by a cabin crew."
Pros: "It was comfortable with plenty of space since no one was on the flight."
Cons: "The stop in Milan was unexpected and not marked on the ticket. It was irritating to stop in Milan and then have to reboard. I didn't notice when I was buying the ticket that the flight was a few hours longer than it could have been. I should have just booked my flight straight from Delhi to Europe. It would have been more efficient."
Pros: "The aircraft windows were clean, that's about it!"
Cons: "Everything, horrible food, no amenity bag for long flight. No toothbrush?? Dirty bathrooms from one hour into the flat guy till the end. Bad service all and all disaster not to mention that they cracked my suitcase."
Pros: "So nice to still fly on a comfortable seat and with great and friendly service."
Pros: "Food was really good and they accommodated my gluten free diet with ease. Great movies and tv shows to watch!"

Pros: "Great service, good food, lots of entertainment options."

Cons: "I like the seat is wider, more leg room. It's quite silent compare to 777. I also feels it's spacious compared to 777."
Pros: "Everything was great. I didn't want to get off the plane."
Pros: "The entire experience was first rate- an excellent web-based support network from flight planning through on-line checkin. Airport experience at both MXP and JFK was excellent.. attentive, efficient ground staff- as were aircrews on both our flights with Emirates. Top class, attentive.. really enjoyed the flight. And, we pushed back spot on time both legs."
Cons: "They work the aircraft hard and it shows in small details.. broken latch in the head, bits of trash in the seatback pocket... but still head and shoulders above their competition. Oh, and it'd be nice to have bar service better coordinated with dinner.. the bar showed up quite a while after dinner was handed out. Tough if you prefer wine with your meal."
Pros: "Smooth flight, nice crew and decent food. Good infotainment although I couldn't find live TV in the Menu."
Cons: "The plane was uncomfortably COLD and DRY! Had two blankets on me and still sneezing. Seats were TIGHT!! Unbelievable!! Such a large plane had seats as small as baby car seats! Left the plane with red eyes, dry nose and aching joints!"
Cons: "My car was left in Dubai , & I am not sure when I will get it."
Pros: "Gorgeous plane, delicious food and great entertainment system."
Cons: "My wife and I checked in together and we have identical bags, but hers did not make it to Milan BECAUSE IT NEVER LEFT NY DUE TO TOTAL INCOMPETENCE. IT TOOK 4 DAYS, 35 PHONECALLS AND INCREDIBLE PERSISTENCE TO MAKE SURE WE GOT IT BACK AND EMIRATES WAS AWFUL IN THIS REGARD."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and the flight was fast and smooth. Seating was great"
Cons: "Nothing needs to be corrected"
Pros: "Seating and serving, both very good"

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and appreciate gate agent's enforcement of the two personal bags per person."
Pros: "Great crew!!"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit slow!"

Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly and helpful. The drink package for comfort trip was fantastic and worth it."

Pros: "Delta as always top notch!"
Cons: "I had window seats on all flights and was boarded after those in middle/aisle seats 3 out of 4 times. Less legroom in the cheap seats. High whining pitch on speaker during announcements on last leg."
Pros: "Plane was on-time, that was the only thing nice to say about this flight."
Cons: "First, I was charged $100 because my bag was 3 kilos over weight. Second the seats in Comfort Plus were old. The recline was weak and there were no foot rests. For a cheaper flight on American, the seats have those amenities making it easier to sleep. Plus the food was inedible."
Pros: "The crew really took care of us. You could tell they care."
Cons: "I wish the headphone jacks allowed standard headphones. I brought a nice set and didn't have an adapter. I used the ones they included which were ok, but not great."
Pros: "All ok"
Pros: "Attendants, food and entertainment very positive"
Cons: "Seats reserved online no where in system. Everyone seemed to be in zone 3 or at least decided to stand in line."

Pros: "Good staff, plenty of room, comfortable flight, smooth flight"
Cons: "Some passengers behind me didn’t get snacks and drink"
Pros: "The attendant was most helpful. Because the flight was not full, she allowed us to sit in the exit row, window and aisle, with no one between. I'm a tall person, so the extra leg room was deeply appreciated. I give her and the airline high marks."
Pros: "Easy, fast boarding. We arrived early too."
Pros: "Everything is good except our lunch as described below."
Cons: "They ran out of chicken breast in our lunch packages, so the stewardess went back to get it. After 10 minutes she still did not show up, we turned on the help light, and still no one came.

Cons: "Everything else."

Pros: "This was a redeye flight that was very smooth."
Cons: "I had an aisle seat and a male flight attendant kept going up and down the aisle bumping my shoulder. If I were a big person I could understand the bumping. He was wider than the aisle. At last count he bumped me 7 times while I was trying to get some sleep on this 5 hour redeye flight. I was going to confront him on his next trip but finally fell asleep before then."
Pros: "Crew smiling at the end of the flight."
Cons: "Cheap coffee (although it says Starbucks, I have tried better)."
Pros: "Friendly crew and quick boarding process"
Pros: "They had some weather in atlanta. So they drove us out to the runway and then we sat for 45 minutes with the engines off waiting to leave. I guess it is nice that they want to keep you safe. After missing our connector - they did put us up in a hotel overnignt. However we still had to pay extra for taxi back, parking an extra day at the airport, and extra meals. Oh - and the extra trip to detroit..."
Cons: "So after waiting 45 minutes on the tarmac - we left and headed to Atlanta. There we landed and waited because they had no gate for us. Then we finally got off the pane and ran to our connector which left without us. We were told they don't hold the plane for less than ten people. So the four of us don't matter. We sat and sat waiting...and then lost another day due to travel."
Pros: "Friendly crew, great access to a variety refreshments, robust entertainment library."
Cons: "No suggestions."
Pros: "Pumpkin soup instead of a heavy entree was welcome and tasty. Breakfast yogurt portion was generous, the granola less so. Accompaniments were good. Butter was not ice cold, thank goodness."
Cons: "Inbelievably chaotic boarding process for Kili to Dar leg. No boarding lanes so had to fight through the crowd. Was able to observe cleaning process at Dar stop, which was cursory and am sure there was no cleaning of seats of those who boarded at Kili."
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."

Cons: "Again, no aisle seat for SkyTeam Gold member. Also, my baggage was lost. First bag arrived a day late, second after I had left Billund and it was six days before the bag with my clothes reached me. I was told I will have 100 euro credit for clothing, but in the winter and for 6 days, this was not even close to the amount I needed for clothing and necessities, to have my time here."

Cons: "The plane was very dirty when we landed in Dar-es-salaam. The plane did get cleaned a little bit in Dar-es-salaam however I was still missing a pillow and blanket which I had to actively seek out. Seating was not very comfortable as there was a box attached to the leg of the seat in front of me, making it necessary to keep my feet at an uncomfortable angle through the long flight. I did not enjoy the food."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed periodically during our journey. I liked that we could choose our seating online. The entertainment was good."

Cons: "Fewer entertainment options than the delta flight. I got excited with that first flight."
Pros: "Overall, good flight"
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."
Pros: "Crew and food"
Pros: "Flight was overbooked. After paying 1.7k, they put me to another flight which took me 7 hours more to arrive SFO."
Cons: "Old plane"
Cons: "Delayed 24 hours due to a massive system failure on BA's part, we were stuck on an old 747 with tiny seats, a ridiculous seat pitch, mediocre food. At least it got us home."

Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Price was reasonable"
Cons: "Seats not good for 5'10" and taller. Leg room cut short by box fixed under seat in front of me"
Cons: "Plane was very old. Seat rock hard. When I pulled the foot rest down the fabric was coming off to reveal years worth of food crumbs. Disgusting. TV screen was tiny. Seemed sort of staff, took them ages to bring food around, toilet was unclean with no toilet roll towards the end of flight."
Pros: "Very good"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Very room seats."
Cons: "They even charge for water."
Cons: "There was no food or movie"
Pros: "I managed to get onto an earlier flight than anticipated when my original flight to Milan was canceled. The flight went well and service was certainly completely acceptable. I don't recall many details more than two weeks later."
Cons: "The exit row seat available on the rebooked flight was a middle seat, and I can't really complain since I did get the extra leg room I originally booked. I didn't like the length of time I had to wait at Heathrow, however, due to the canceled flight. It was several hours! My apartment rental landlord and I were both inconvenienced somewhat by the late evening arrival when an early afternoon arrival was initially scheduled."
Cons: "Too much of time at security check in London. We almost missed our flight"
Pros: "Staff were great, classy even, making the journey pleasant"
Cons: "On checking in I wasn’t given the option to add a bag, meaning I had to pay over double the rate at the airport. Trying to add one online or on the app failed. Calling the support helpline was a waste of time and money; spending 10mins on hold before being told there was nothing to be done."
Pros: "Smooth & efficient"
Cons: "That you’ve to pay for everything including water"
Cons: "I paid for TWO EXTRA suitcases for my flight. I carefully packed and weighted them in advance. The "lady" on the counter made me remove one jacket and one pair of boots from each suitcase because it was GRAMS over the limit. Grams those that my hand scale did not accuse at all. The following customer right after me had KILOS OVER the limit (almost SEVEN) and were not flying business or first class, regular economic class just like me. And they did not had to remove a thing from their extra heavy suitcases. What is the company criteria? Anyway, I bought me another return flight on OTHER airline and simply lost my return flight on BA. I am never flying this horrible company again."
Pros: "Not much, flights were on time is the only positive"
Cons: "Turbulence (other airlines went out of their way to avoid it, by BA didn’t seem to care), BA has got rid of in flight services - so what am I paying so much for? - and made me exit and re-enter through security despite the fact that I’d checked in for a connecting flight. Overall not a positive experience and don’t think I’ll be rushing to fly with them again."
Pros: "Good friendly service. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Food, especially breakfast is atrocious."
Cons: "Flight was very late. Reason given was a mechanical issue but last minute boarding was people whose flight out of Gatwick was cancelled and they were bussed to Heathrow so I suspect that was the real cause for the delay or at least a part of it"
Pros: "There were no passengers in middle seats. I liked the M&S food for purchase, although they ran out of sandwiches by row 10."
Cons: "I made the connection from T3 to T5; my bags didn’t, again, BA!"
Pros: "Everyone was quite pleasant. Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The initial line for check in was ridiculous. Not manned for quite some time, then kept changing line classifications. May have been related to how Spain ran the airport, but very puzzling"
Cons: "We waited 3 hours in the airplane before they would take off, first because they said there was a line for the taxi gate, then they said something was wrong with the airplane they needed to fix it. Shouldn't they do maintenance before they load a plane?"
Pros: "entertainment and crew on the plane were great!"
Cons: "I was moved to standby coming from London back to Seattle. The check in attendant notified me that b/c I hadn't check in 24hrs in a advance, I was bumped. I never received any notifications via Kayak or BA to check in...I almost didn't make it home."
Cons: "Good service and amenities from London to DC. Athens to London flightnshould provide free coffee, warwe, etc. Why pay for every small amenity on a 2hr flight? Seemed like Freddy Lalker!"
Pros: "How short the flight was and the fact that I had an empty seat next to me."
Pros: "Everything. Professional staff."
Pros: "On time quick boarding and away"
Pros: "It was a smooth landing."
Cons: "Do difference between business and coach except no one in the middle. Same seats, same everything. Save your money."
Pros: "Nice, smooth flight, no complaints."
Cons: "BTW, BA cancelled the flight from Chicago and changed it to AUS->DFW->LON->BOM. While returning, wheel chair assistant left my parents on the midway who can't walk much and don't understand English. This happened at DFW airport. Next time I will think twice to book with this airline."
Pros: "Pre flight information, checking in online & self baggage drop."
Cons: "Flight delayed, sat on runway for 30 mins with no explanation. Not very comfortable, cramped. Can't pay for refreshments with cash."
Cons: "Our bags were lost. Only water was offered."
Pros: "The entertainment was good with variety. Overall, it's hard to appreciate a 10 hour flight."
Cons: "Seats in coach did not have much width or leg room. I don't like the policy of buying a flight and having to pay for a selected seat - that smacks of bait and switch. I know everybody is doing it, but it's tacking on extras once the committment has been made and that is low. The boarding process in London was horrible. queuing up everybody then telling them the general boarding is "over there". The lines should be more well-defined and single file to avoid bunching up. There was plenty of room to form lines, but the stanchions were not in place. Poorly executed. Also, there are FAR too many priorty boarding classes. People had to jump lines and go around barrier tapes to get to their positions in line when their priority class was called. Once on board, the crew did a fine job, but the boarding area is completely screwed up."
Pros: "Safe flight"
Cons: "Very poor service. Did not offer drinks. When asked for drinks the crew said they are doing duty free and did not serve water or drinks."
Cons: "We arrived over an hour early to bag check for our flight, stood around for 30 minutes while the staff chatted, and then when they finally started checking bags, we were told our flight was already closed. When we said we'd been waiting they called us liars and forced us out of the line. We had to stay in Paris 2 more days."
Pros: "Everyone please read this carefully before flying with British Airways - we will be taking this further as customer service is appalling!"
Cons: "British Airways overbooked the flight so we missed it and the next one due to system failure. We then were trapped in the airport (Heathrow) for the entire day. They 'allowed' us to leave the airport nine hours after we got there but unfortunately there were no trains, planes or buses going to Milan until midnight. After we searched for two hours to get to Milan we found one but had to spend nine hundred pounds to get a flight with another airline to get to my friends wedding. They lost our bags so we had to borrow clothes for the wedding from friends which was so embarrassing! We then continued our trip and they still have not returned our bags seven days into what was going to be the holiday of a lifetime. Not only have they ruined the trip for us both, they have cost us a bomb as we have had to buy clothes as we go."
Pros: "The seats are more comfortable than other low cost airlines. There is a bit more leg room. The crew are always friendly. We arrived earlier than the scheduled time."
Cons: "There was no in flight entertainment except a graphic showing how far we were progressing. Alas, paying for M&S food is not what I expect, that's EasyJet territory not British Airways."
Pros: "nothing to be noted"
Cons: "late departure"
Pros: "This was maybe a regional carrier, the flight was a bit more mundane compared to the wide-body crossing the Atlantic, however, there was nothing to really complain about. Boarding was a bit of a madhouse, but in the end not too eventful."
Pros: "the crew was grate, brakfest was good ."
Cons: "We booked a wheelchair transfer from the connecting flight, and BA refused to provide the service. My elderly mother in law with limited mobility was left alone and stranded at Heathrow and was only assisted by fellow passengers (NOT BA staff). Unbelievable."
Pros: "I loved everything about the trip. From the aircraft to the crew. Jaime (flight attendant) became like a friend on that trip. I will use British Airways for every flight to Europe going forward."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for 3 hrs which meant I would miss 2 onward connections-- had to be re- booked on American"
Pros: "I liked the demeanor of the crew that I interacted with and I appreciated the updates from the pilot since we were delayed into London and I had a quick connection."
Cons: "The breakfast option ran out by the time the crew got to me in the middle of the plane. The delay was nerve-wracking with the very close connection to my international flight."
Cons: "we didn't get a snack before landing we only got a drink. we were only given food at the beginning of the flight and it was an 8 hour flight. I was not able to change my flight for this trip had to do it at the counter; but the friend who i was traveling with did have the ability to do so. I went early to the airport in Johannesburg to ensure we could sit together but the workers in terminal A sent me to terminal B (even though they were closed and didn't open until 3) then i went to the ticketing desk and they said they couldn't' help me. so i ask them to call British Airways help desk (since i didn't have a phone internationally) and they said they were closed on the weekend. I wrote the gentleman's name down but i don't have it with me right now. I was finally able to get my seat changed when i checked in at 6pm; lucky there were seats available. I would say the customer service at Johannesburg airport for BA is terrible."
Pros: "Crew excellent!"
Cons: "The flight was crowded!"
Cons: "I almost lost my coincidence with the other flight"
Cons: "No snacks or drinks provided on any of my flights on American this weekend. 2 of them were real short so that makes sense but other 2 were long enough to have this but stopped before my row. We were Delayed, which is understandable, but not sure why we couldn't board and wait for crew to come on to speed up process rather than waiting for crew to arrive to even begin boarding process. I assume it's a safety thing but seems like there could be a better way to handle this and speed up process to make sure people aren't missing connecting flights."
Pros: "comfortable seats, legroom,"
Cons: "seat recline, food, offer lounge access"
Pros: "Boarding very well done."
Cons: "One of the crew was unhappy."
Pros: "Yes! The crew was amazing! The seat was perfect!"
Cons: "It was very cold on the plane."
Pros: "The crew and the duration of the flight"
Cons: "The comfort and the food"
Pros: "Crew entertainment"
Cons: "Seat cushions"
Cons: "AA provided me NO assistance when my flight was cancelled and I had to make arrangements on my own, which caused me to incur in extra expending."
Cons: "Wifi didn’t work."
Cons: "The seating was not good middle seat I like windows"
Pros: "Lots of leg room for such a small plane."
Cons: "AA did not update the flight status. My inbound flight was delayed due to weather but AA kept reporting the connecting flight as on time. I ended up making the connection with time to spare. If AA had reported the delayed departure I would have stopped for food. My bag did not make the connection."
Pros: "The only good thing about the flight was the crew."
Cons: "I’m surprised there weren't chickens and goats flying with us. The seats were worn out and ratty. There was no where to charge a phone or electronics. No in seat tv screen so was forced to watch the tiny overhead screen of terrible tv shows and mediocre movies. I prepaid for a seat a head of time which was given to someone else. Also quite a bit of heavy turbulence the entire flight. Not ideal for an 8 hr flight. I’m lucky I brought an external charger and some xanax. Never again"
Pros: "Everything was very smooth and pleasant overall."
Cons: "Most of the family were seating apart. I can't understand why?"
Pros: "I really like that they free inflight WiFi and entertainment. The seats are little more comfortable than other airlines. The service was great too."
Pros: "Food, Crew, and entertainment were satisfactory."
Cons: "I opted to pay an additional $398 for seats just behind the bulkhead - that is, no seats directly in front of me - so that I could have extra legroom. The legroom was fine, as expected, but passengers were allowed to use that space as a corridor, keeping my wife and me awake all night. We were constantly being expected to move our legs as people passed by. I want my $398 back!"
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude and nasty!"
Pros: "The crew was accommodating"
Cons: "The crew was pleasant. No water served due to turbulence"
Pros: "No major delays. Boarding and exiting was smooth. Got assigned a window seat near front"
Cons: "Small delay of 25 minutes"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient."
Cons: "Takeoff delayed 1 hr entertainment system in my seat didn't work asked crew 2x to assist and they ignored me food was poor, I'd rather have a cookie and a bag of almonds"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew"
Cons: "Booked flight with my sister 6 months before departure, paid for both tickets at the same time to find out seat assignment not together.... that could be understable only if ticket is purchased at the last minute, but that was not applicable to our situation..... we could not switch seats during flight"
Cons: "Dinner was so so but nice and hot. The breakfast in economy class was awful. The apple and cinnamon cake had too much cinnamon and left an aftertaste. The yogurt and granola was ok but not everyone has a yen for either of them. The dried apple and berries were too sweet. All in all we found this meal to be unsatisfsctory. The staff had only the most necessary contact with us which was to serve and remove trays and garbage."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Turbulent flight, little leg room, old plane, delayed, no entertainment."
Pros: "On time flight. Cheap ticket"
Cons: "Rickey seats. When woman in row ahead got up our drinks spilled. No personal screens and small shared screen too far away. Online entertainment did not work. Special meal came frozen. Water bottle frozen solid and only as it began to leak on floor did I realize ice had broken bottle. really primitive."
Cons: "Was not compensated for arranging trans from Albuquerque to Santa Fe! Refused delivery of bag Santa Fe address!"
Cons: "Old plane No outlet No screen No USB Poor food quality"
Pros: "Let’s begin by saying that this plane should not be flying anymore, it’s dated and doesn’t offer any type of comfort.n No entertainment, seats are extremely uncomfortable, my husband seat was broken and wouldn’t recline. Flight attendants were sloppy and never brought me anything I asked. I asked for lactose free meal and my breakfast was a yogurt... Not worth the price I paid for this flight... stay away!!"
Pros: "The seats were more spacious than other airlines which we appreciated, and this was quite comfortable."
Cons: "The overhead lights for reading were not working however, and we could not see the movie well from our seat so not being able to read was bothersome. The crew was nice but not especially helpful when we asked questions about the food and lights."
Cons: "6hours delay and no reimbursement. It sucked! Thank you."
Pros: "Arriving on time"
Pros: "Terrible. Old airplane, bad food, no entertainment. To avoid in the future"
Cons: "No individual screen. It would have been nice to know that beforehand. It was an unpleasant surprise."
Cons: "American Airlines"
Pros: "Crew updates during a technical issue investigation."
Cons: "This plane is very small for an international flight, and it does not have the proper entertainment system for long flights. To top it off, the plane was very smelly; I got a headache because of it. We also had to return to the gate due to a technical issue and ended up leaving almost two hours late, which defeated the purpose of picking this flight over the rest as it was the one that was supposed to land in Milan the earliest. I will be careful next time I pick a flight to check what kind of airplane they're using. My assumption that international flights have the best airplanes seems to be wrong :(."
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived early.T"
Cons: "This was by far the most turbulent flight I have ever been on. Perhaps it was due to the remnants of Hurricane Ophelia, but only toward the end did the flight become smooth. I am surprised that a better flight path couldn't have been chosen."
Cons: "Very inefficient that all bags had to be checked on the jet way and then picked up on the jet way. The picking up on the jet way turned into a cluster F."
Cons: "No power outlets in seats Poor viewing options off the 3 monitors Seat back was broken (when sitting up straight, it reclined on its own"
Pros: "Crew was exceptionally lovely through delay except for lead attendant who spoke down to attendants and passengers alike (would refer to me in third person in front of me--asking attendant condescendingly "why is he here?"). terrible sense of service, spoke like I was a grade school kid in her class. Gate agent gave me last minute seat change which was very cool of her"
Cons: "Plane is terribly old, has ashtrays and audio channels for entertainment. More importantly, mechanical failures at and after gate. Total delay of over 2 hours. My girlfriend flew this same plane and had even longer delays plus needed to divert In flight and turn around and land in heathrow on a mxp-jfk route (they were over the Atlantic). Problems continue for me 2 months later on this route and as a pattern it's incredibly unsettling. I'm questioning whether taking the return flight on a plane that's clearly begging to be retired"
Cons: "Strange thing: my wife and I were in business class. The stewardess going down my isle said all dinner choices were already used up and I only had a choice of pasta or chicken. Later the stewardess went down the isle for my wife and she had all choices available! Weird. And the stewardess said this was as it was supposed to be."
Pros: "We know it's high season, we got to Milan save. That's the main part, overnight flight so that was good we slept a little."
Cons: "Boarding was a little complicated, somehow they couldn't pull or flights up. But the staff was very helpful. Sorry but the plain seating was very uncomfortable, food was so so! We didn't really the kids movie on the main screen ."
Pros: "Very simple process. Easiest trip ever. Baggage was easy. Nice staff."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment, seat was not clean."
Pros: "Not one thing"
Cons: "Ancient aircraft Bad food No wifi No chargers Seat won't incline Seats were falling apart"
Cons: "After arriving at the airport more than 2 hours early and at the gate 30 min prior to departure, American Airlines never called last boarding call, not our names. We sat at the gate, not knowing they had boarded, and tje plane departed unbeknownst to us. Had to stand in the rebooking line for 1.5 hours before speaking to a rep who told us we couldn't rebook our international flight. Had to request a supervisor, who thankfully after an additional hour was able ro rebook us."
Cons: "Cancelled flight due to multiple mechanical malfunctions that should have been checked previous to boarding. Held on the plane for 4 hours, another 4 hours in terminal of the closed airport once allowed to deplane, no communication, no food or water, put up in a hotel an hour and half away despite this being NYC, terrible customer service, no compensation, unable to get tofinal destination earlier than 24 hours later missed events in final destination overall financial and personal losses due to the inadequacy of the airline."
Cons: "There was no phone charger at the seat."
Cons: "Very!! Dissatisfied & disappointed with AA. Finally took off over 3 hrs late. At that point everyone was thrilled that we were going versus being canceled. Had food in business class which tasted like it had been overcooked for three hours"
Pros: "Once we boarded, business class was very good."
Cons: "Food was pretty bad, dinner and breakfast. No taste at all."
Pros: "Flight in air"
Cons: "Take offs and landings"
