Narrow middle seat in Boeing 777 (10 abreast) instead of 9. Boarding one an a half hour late.
Booked through JetBlue but this was an American Flight. Terrible service, no alcohol beverages available yet. Crazy
Boarding process in Chicago was a mess. They didn't seem to be following the group numbers so everyone just boarded whenever. Flight landed 30 minutes early which was great, but then it took nearly 45 minutes before we got off the plane because there were issues with the jet bridge.
Los vuelos son un caos ayer estuve todo el día en el aeropuerto no tengo vuela hasta el noviembre 2. Tengo problemas en mi trabajo por que tenía que presentarme hoy y es hora que todavía estoy aquí en Miami estoy desepcionada.
Cons: "Had flight delay affecting my connecting flight."
Pros: "The staff was super friendly. Checking in was a breeze."
Cons: "The cabin temperature was insane. SO COLD!! even with blankets people and my self included were freezing!!"
Pros: "Crew were very friendly"
Cons: "AC power. Seat back TVs."
Pros: "ON time"
Cons: "Food selection"
Pros: "We eventually left."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The airline brought out some snacks for the passengers after an hour or so."
Cons: "There was a mechanical failure. We all had to deplane. The flight was delayed longer than the travel time to the destination."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly. Thank you AA!"
Pros: "That I finally reached my destination."
Cons: "I & all passengers would have received accurate, timely information related to the 4 hour delay"
Pros: "Quick f playing AA"
Pros: "Good crew. Smooth ride. Beautiful new plane."
Cons: "Food but it wasn’t bad."
Cons: "Be on time. Plus we were in first class and it would be nice if the center counsel was smaller giving the passenger more seat room."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Not sitting on the runway for 2 hours"
Pros: "Food was surprisingly tasty for airplane food, vote would be lovely if someone could figure out how to produce a hash brown at the passenger seat without having it be limp"
Cons: "I’m guessing that a great many passengers would happily pay 10% more on their fair to have 10% fewer seats on board so that was actually possible to achieve a state of modest comfort while flying in a 12 hour flight."
Pros: "For American’s domestic fleet, this is my favourite airplane, the Airbus A321. It has the largest coach seats so no matter where you sit, you aren’t a sardine in a tin can (like those awful 737s). Cabin crew was quiet and seemingly tired, but that’s fine for an evening flight. Peaceful flight."
Cons: "While I love their A321 fleet, they need to add power outlets at each seat! Otherwise, it was was good overall."
Pros: "plane was completely full , but the seating seemed comfortable for the short flight ( 1 hour )."
Cons: "bags were a bit delayed in delivery to baggage claim."
Pros: "not atg all"
Cons: "I paid for a preferred seat and the passenger seated next to me was so large that he could not buckle his seatbelt and totally squished me into the window. I called the stewarddess over and I was haphazardly moved to an aisle seat next to a smaller passenger. I was then bumped into repeatedly by"
Pros: "Flight was under 4 hours."
Cons: "No where to store carry on since everyone is allowed to bring larger bags than they should so you end up having to stuff everything under the seat leaving no room for your legs. Very uncomfortable!"
Cons: "Took over an hour to get baggage."
Pros: "Loved being able to watch new release movies and many different tv showed plus being able to listen to music thought the flight."
Cons: "Didn't like sitting in the emergency exit row next to the bathroom. Everyone uses it to stretch their legs and they end up standing on top of you most of the flight."
Cons: "NOT ENOUGH SPACE FOR THE LEGS, I serioulsy doubt that it was the size that the sold in the info when I booked (armrest blocked), the seat to small (I couldn't put my head because it was too much short). Paintful, the worst experience in my life,"
Cons: "Legroom was a bit cramped for a tall person"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Delayed and didn't try to speed up the delay"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Late taking off. Almost missed my connection"
Pros: "Everything was very adequate, nothing special about this flight."
Cons: "Takeoff was delayed about 35 minutes just due to traffic on the runway. Out of all the flights on our international trip, the only issues we experienced were with American airports. You would think an issue like this would be readily solved by foreplanning, but instead we sat on the tarmac just waiting for our turn to take off. Some form of entertainment on the plane would've been nice. Or at least a place to charge electronics. Our bags arrived at our destination before we did, and although I immediately received a text alerting me to this fact, I was dismayed to find out they were in an entirely different terminal of the DFW airport. After 24 hours of travel and very little sleep, instead of just walking off the plane and retrieving our bags, our group of 20 weary souls had to first determine where our luggage was, catch a bus to a different terminal ( because of the size of our group we couldn't all fit on the first bus, so had to wait for the second bus), and then track down our bags. American Airlines did absolutely nothing to help make this experience any easier for us. Five of our party were in wheelchairs due to various levels of exhaustion or ailment, and all we were told is "I'm sorry but there's nothing we can do." This little adventure delayed us about an hour."
Cons: "A couple of flight attendants were a bit grumpy/short with passengers. Lack of food definitely not ideal but glad they could get something given circumstances with health department. Still waiting for promised vouchers to arrive."
Pros: "air flight attendants were really great! As well as suitcase handle, it arrived on destination after all scales, awesome"
Cons: "space was small in economic class"
Cons: "it was cancelled "mechanical" sure heard that one before"
Cons: "Flight left late, once in Charlotte sat on taomac 20 min, waited 20 min for our forced to check carry on and missed our connecting flight. They gave away our seats and were not helpful. Eventually wander to a customer service desk. Anitbef ling wait. Finally got a flight out."
Pros: "The smooth flight"
Cons: "The smell in the plane"
Pros: "Flight on Time, Confort, Crew"
Cons: "I know if you want food, you must pay but not even a cookie...???"
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "There are NO ENTERTAINMENT, and I had two flights that were more than 5 hours each. It was not operated by British, it was actually American Airlines."
Pros: "Early departure and arrival, mostly comfortable flight, satisfying food, helpful crew"
Cons: "I did not have the option to reserve an aisle seat in advance, and I was stuck with a middle seat."
Cons: "Delayed flights, rude agents, no pre-boarding for families, no stroller delivery at the arrival gate and 20 year old planes with mechanical issues. Nightmare!"
Pros: "Nothing, I missed my flight bc of lack of paperwork and information from the crew"
Cons: "American airlines was helpful to embark my daughter who lost her conection from Miami to NYC"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac to move to the gate for 30 minutes. NEVER AGAIN, I AM THROUGH!!!!"
Cons: "The exit row seats were very confining g..way to narrow due to type of seat used..had the tray in the arm"
Pros: "I liked that the middle seat was open on my flight and that they checked my carry on for free because the plane was filled."
Cons: "I didn't like the minimal leg room. Also, there is no way to try and work on a computer anymore because of the lack of room."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to weather, which I was fine with as I wanted to fly home in the safest conditions, and I do trust the captains decision. However, upon arrival, we were stuck on the runway for 3 hours!!!! Our flight landed at 1, we did not exit plane until 3:40. They were not curtious enough to give us accurate time frames on when we would be allowed off. They told us 40 minutes initially, obviously was a lie. We did not receive updates whatsoever. We had to stay seated the entire time with seat belts even though we were not moving!! I got up to use the restroom and was instructed to sit back down even though attendants were aware that we were not moving and were not getting off any time soon. A 2 hour flight turned into 5 hours on the plane instead so of course many passengers needed to use the restroom. Flight attendants offered no avail with extra attention, drinks, snacks or even by allowing fussy babies to be strolled down the aisle as the aircraft was completely still until the last 3-5 minutes when we FINALLY pulled to a terminal. We had to have a terminal when southwest would have gladly brought stairs to our flight so we could at least wait inside a less compact space, such as the airport, for luggage. I know of many people on our flight who missed connecting flights, which I'm sure AA did nothing to accommodate. By the end of it all, my family member who originally was going to pick us up from airport went home as he waited over 3 hours for me to get off the plane. I had to pay a taxi cab to bring me home and did not make it home until 6am when it was all said and done. To add insult to injury, the flight attendants did not even thank us for our patience or have the decency to address said issue. Never flying AA again."
Pros: "The leg room on these flights is becoming a joke. I purchase upgrades seats always and was appalled on this trip how aa seems to be trying to rip off customers more and more with any trick they can come up with. My extra leg room was barely acceptable for any flight. I can't imagine those behind me."
Cons: "I really will avoid AA at all costs now. Just feels like a rip off every time I fly with them and their crew is rude."
The check in was very long, total chaos at Madrid airport.
Me fui madrid - Cancún y nunca llegó la maleta 🧳 a Cancún… iberia no se hace responsable y debo arreglármelas con AereoMexico quienes no dicen nada sobre mi equipaje…… MUY IRRESPONSABLE IBERIA
Pros: "They had a great selection of movies, each passenger received a blanket and pillow without having to ask, the crew was friendly and professional, and the takeoff and landing were smooth."
Cons: "During the reservation process it seemed that the ticket included luggage, and only when I received the ticket I discovered that I had to pay 30 Euro extra, each way, to check in luggage. The ticket was by no means low-cost, so I don't understand why that wasn't included in the price. And the food could have been much better, I really couldn't eat anything and I usually like airline food... :) Thanks!"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "A drink of water should not cost 2euro. On a moderately long flight it is a necessity."
Pros: "Tv, food, blanket with pillow"
Cons: "Everything was wonderful"
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "British airlines delayed flight to my transfer. Missed my transfer to Madrid and got one to London. Leaving from London my flight on British was delayed by 2 hours AGAIN. Not good."
Pros: "Service was a bit lacking. Due to extra security measures at the gate, we did not have time to get enough food in the terminal to bring on board with us so needed to order a sandwich and drink. The on screen food order system did not work, and it was difficult to know when we could request food."
Cons: "More attentive flight attendants and better explanation of when food and beverages not purchased in advance could be ordered."
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "The seats are awful."
Pros: "not enough leg room. Tray too small."
Cons: "the above"
Cons: "The attention to the passengers by the flight attendants. This applies only to one attendant that was not very helpful"
Pros: "To check in took so long . I could have used the automated check in but my code was not recognised. Travelling as a couple we were given separate seats .The staff did not even see fit to even tell us.Poor meals. the cabin crew looked harassed."
Cons: "Send emails reminders to offer web check in."
Pros: "The crew was amazing.The seats weren't bad but not super comfortable."
Cons: "The kosher food was excellent and delicious but cold.Our only complaint was that the boss of the crew laughing and making lots of noise when people were trying to sleep.It was great to see people so happy but not during sleep time.I loved the crew.They were very warm and friendly.Boarding was excell"
Pros: "Loved the staff. As far as my experience flying Iberia for the first time is concerned, the the staff was very attentive and courteous. The food was not bad either as it was pretty good and included many beverage options. Would like to see how they do for flights lasting longer than 8 hours. Mine was only about 5 and a half hours from Madrid to Tel Aviv."
Pros: "The food is very good in 1st class."
Cons: "Even though 1 of the 3 stewards was really excellent at everything (foremost his impecable attitude towards passengers), nothing is really standing out anymore in IBERIA 1st class. It used to be extremely good, but now everything is banal. No attention to detail or pleasantness. The one thing that really concerns me is that Spanish stewards, more the women than the men, are becoming more rude than before. I understand that some passengers must be a hassle from time to time, but this is their one and only job, so a nice attitude is of the utmost importance."
Cons: "Pedí un resumen del vuelo para ver lo que compré y nunca me llegó."
Pros: "Flew with the company Iberia was very good service ,easy flight ,good food ,all liked"
Cons: "I wish there was a bigger selection of movies and tv-shows to watch."
Pros: "The entertainment system is pretty good. Touch screens work great, and you can charge your phone. The plane itself is fairly up-to-date, and the headrest is adjustable and very comfortable."
Cons: "I am 6' / 183cm and 210lbs / 95 kg. The seats are quite narrow, and little legroom. I don't think I'll fly them again."
Pros: "It was a regular flight Seats worked entertainment worked Staff did their jobs without many smiles but they did it"
Cons: "staff was somewhat distracted doing their duty but not attuned to peoples needs I wanted more water Had to ask twice OH I forgot was the answer I got Otherwise all was fine"
Cons: "Not enough place on board. Very poor company"

Cons: "Could not do online check-in."
Pros: "The staff was rude and not helpful. Check in was below standard."

Cons: "Lack of legroom on such a long flight"
Cons: "No possibility to order kosher food on the site."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and very helpful."
Pros: "Usually on time"
Cons: "Too crowd. Bad food. They do not clean at all between flights."
Pros: "Spaciousness of plane"
Cons: "Boarding was a zoo! The stewardess in business class was very rude. The food could be less starchy."
Cons: "The airline put me on standby for my connecting flight without telling me at anypoint until I was at the gate. I lost a day of vacation and instead had to wait in Madrid for 4hrs, fly to a neighboring city, and then take 2hr bus to my final destination."
Cons: "They did not even serve water for a 4-hour flight. We did not know that this was a flight that you had to pay for everything."
Cons: "Doctor recommended not to travel but no credit given."
Pros: "Fast boarding."
Cons: "No air conditioning.no help with making connecting flight/customs. Staff could not speak english."
Pros: "It was short."
Cons: "Staff was not attentive to customers needs."
Pros: "Staff was friendly, bathrooms kept clean, and seats were comfortable. Entertainment was top notch."
Cons: "We kept trying to order water and food from our screens but the process was complicated, long, and ultimately didn't work. The system is buggy."
Cons: "There is no room for legs he flight was not comfortable .For flight more 5 hours,a plane must be larger,than AB 319"
Pros: "Meal and drinks"
Cons: "Flight was extremely packed and 5 hours long. It was loterlly from hell."
Cons: "Airline switched to smaller plane after check-in, we were bumped off. Instead of direct flight from Madrid to Tel Aviv, we were routed through Vienna. Instead of 4.5 hours, it took us more than 12."
Pros: "Excellent service!"
Cons: "The flight from Madrid to tel aviv was very crowded, no place to hand bag, the seat wasn't comfortable like in a low cost flight. The was no TV, not even music. To bad"
Cons: "NO HUBO ENTRETENIMIENTO, EL AVION NO LO TENIA. EL PASAJE SE SENTIA INTRANQUILO . Y ESO HACE QUEEL VIAJE RESULTE MUY MOLESTO. ALICIA"
Pros: "nothing good happens"
Cons: "the last truck (madrid - tel aviv) was not with the same airbus that the 3 others (tel aviv - madrid / madrid - buenos aires / buenos aires madrid)... it was like flying in low cost with food (even the chair could not go backwards...very bad the last one"
Cons: "Crew was good but they could be friendlier (i.e. smile).."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I think the Brie cheese I ate made me sick afterward. I wish the staff had brought water around more."

Pros: "The crew was great. Not some of the gate agents."

Cons: "Food, my kids refused to eat."
Pros: "Crew were really friendly and very courteous."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Pros: "Entertainment system"
Pros: "A long but uneventful flight."
Cons: "Nothing really. The flight was fine."
Pros: "The seats are very comfortable."
Cons: "The Newark security people were ridiculously rude. The flight was delayed due to mismanagement of the gates, and yet they yelled as us, the folks standing in line (and not making a ruckus). The flight attendants seemed bored and were inattentive."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. The food was great. The entertainment was great."
Cons: "There was very little room for my legs and I couldn't rest my arm on the seat next to me since the person on my left took over. It made my flight much worse. It is difficult to fly overnight when you are so uncomfortable and the price was very high in the economy area."
Cons: "The airline should have reviewed who was delayed on their connection and wait at least 5-10 minutes to accommodate me for a delayed connection. We ended up at the gate for the final leg of my flight and the door closed 30 seconds prior. Very poor internal communications and lack of customer care."
Pros: "Boarding fast"
Cons: "Bus took forever"
Pros: "I liked it because the flight was not overbooked and I had plenty of space."
Cons: "I didn’t like that I had pain and I didn’t know if the crew had any pain medication."
Pros: "Seats had ample room. Crew was nice. Good choice of movies."
Cons: "There was a problem passenger and we all had to get off with all of our carry on, and then repeat the whole boarding process. Very inconvenient."
Cons: "Same as for the first flight segment"
Cons: "Food was mediocre and in very small amounts, even the I have been seated in premium economy, there still was little space in the armrests and hardly any recline"
Pros: "The avod system of movies was good and the channel 9 ATC was amazing to listen to."
Cons: "Multiple delays because of United crazy crew scheduling and a lazy flight crew. Flight attendants didn’t even give us the meals on a 12 hour flight. Worst flight ever."
Pros: "Food was pretty tasty."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, seats are just too close for a 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Was flying biz class and the audio wasn’t working. The flight attendant tried her best but only was able to reboot over and over again. But she didn’t offer a voucher or anything for the lack of a sound system."
Pros: "kosher meals were on plane. extra legroom was comfortable. Good choice of movies"
Cons: "We started to board on time and after group 1 boarded, they said they pulled the crew for a different flight and we needed to wait til 1:30 AM ( 2.5 hours delay) to board. Then 30 minutes later they called us back after finding another crew. It was very chaotic and made not sense"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 5hrs and added multiple connecting flights that I didn’t need. I had a 6am flight and didn’t get to my destination until 11pm."
Pros: "We left on time and got in a bit early leg room was ok for me."
Cons: "It's a long flight."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Great multimedia"
Cons: "Food was good but they served same dish for dinner and breakfast"
Pros: "Entertainment was simple with ample choices"
Cons: "The seating space was cramped. Seats did not decline enough. Seat itself was not comfortable. Back pains after flight. I am not looking forward to the return flight"
Pros: "Spacy seats. Great entertainment. In time."
Cons: "Food could be better."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Food was terrible the service wasn't great not even one the flight attendant walked by and offered bottles of water or dessert besides the 2 meals served. The restroom always were out of tissu paper and were not maintained."
Pros: "The only positive to this flight was that after sitting on hold with United's customer service, it took less than 10 minutes for them to grant me a refund."
Cons: "I ended up backing out of this flight and booking out of a different airport and with a different airline bc apparently this flight with United has been seriously delayed (4+ hours) multiple times before. We were told that the flight was cancelled for the 2 days prior."
Pros: "Flight entertainment Comfortable seats"
Cons: "The crew was not very nice. The electric plug didn't work"
Pros: "Only good thing was the crew. They were good natured even though a roundtrio flight if six hours took 25 because of delay after delay"
Cons: "Too many delays"
Pros: "I was hesitant to travel with united but my flight was very comfortable and the 10 hour flight felt like 3. Smooth ride and landing. Thumps up to the captin I had a very good experience from the time I checked in in Ranold Regen till I arrived Tel Aviv"
Cons: "The food was not very good"
Pros: "Got everything we needed."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "Sitting on runway for almost an hour bc of ground stop in San Francisco"
Cons: "Delay Food Service Plane equipment"
Pros: "The new business seat gives improved comfort. New airplane smell."
Cons: "Flight was late close to one hour because of catering. No prior notices - we were left to stand for more than an hour in front of gate. Surely and nasty elderly citizens made up the flight crew including pilots. About the same service you get from a Siberian gulag prison guard. No communications from pilots. Despite delays and turbulence we were kept in the dark."
Cons: "United organized boarding by zones (1, 2, 3, 4) where 1 is in the front of the aircraft (business) and 4 is at the back. While I appreciate that business travelers should have priority boarding, the order of coach is from front to back. It would be beneficial to begin coach boarding from the back to the front to reduce the traffic on the aisles."
Pros: "The flight crew and gate personnel were courteous and professional., as were theTSA workers."
Cons: "Seating was crowded and uncomfortable. My seat wouldn't recline."
Pros: "I was pleased with the nonstop option from Chattanooga to Chicago."
Cons: "I have a bag that I have travelled with as a very on for years and I know that it fits in the overhead compartments of this size plane, but on both outbound and inbound I was made to gate check. Upon boarding there was plenty of room in the bins. The waiting at the end of each flight made the gateway crowded and replanting inefficient. Either have all bags checked upon check in with stricter guidelines or put overhead items into a lottery system."
Cons: "No room for bags"
Pros: "Direct flight was convenient"
Cons: "The crew on the outbound leg of the trip was unprofessional loud and disrupted everyone's sleep."
Cons: "The flight got delayed and we were told it was "basically cancelled" so we got on a different flight out for the morning but were told we couldn't get a hotel voucher because we volunteered to get off the flight. Very disappointed, will never fly united again. The flight ended up getting cancelled 5 minutes after we "volunteered" to get a different flight too. Luckily we were able to get onto a different airline who helped us out. United dropped the ball big time."
Pros: "Everything was perfect - the pretzel packs looked like they were from 2007 and stale but I don't care about that. The pilots landing there and back were like we landed on clouds - not a single bump or jolt. The flights left on time and arrived early. The staff at gate and plane were so helpful and happy and knew how to do their jobs and not opposed to doing it with a smile. I have flown over the world and these two flights on united were the best."
Cons: "The important things were perfect - the pretzels were stale but who really cares about pretzels! The pilot is the most important and they were great!"
Pros: "The landing was perfect"
Pros: "Air traffic control stopped all flights to Chicago, so my itinerary got changed and ended up taking American Airlines."
Cons: "Because it didn't go anywhere."
Pros: "Crow was great , was very nice flight actually !"
Pros: "On time quick flight."
Cons: "No legroom, snack a joke, no entertainment."
Cons: "Unable to pre-check online. Unable to check at the check in machines--had to go up and check in at the counter, long wait because there was only one clerk. We were then given a ticket just to get through security and had to check in a second time when we get to the gate for seat assignment, which is ridiculous. Why couldn't that be done at the 1st check-in? The clerk told me she will call me when she has the seat assignment/ boarding ticket but she never did and I had to go back up to ask for them when it was getting close to boarding time. At the last moment minutes, volunteers could check in their carry on for free....It would have been nice (and less hassle) to have that option at the 1st check-in."
Pros: "No issues or delays"
Pros: "Very profesional crew with positive attitude Take off and landing within the planed time schedule"
Cons: "Not enough movies with Hebrew subtitles For people with hearing problems English subtitles for all movies can help"
Pros: "Got upgraded to Economy Plus ... how nice to have some extra legroom on a long flight! LOTS of movie options for the 6 hour flight."
