This was especially galling as I was at MCO early enough to catch the 1hr prior flight and requested a transfer to travel with a friend. There were seats available and Delta tried to move me but KLM would not allow it????"
Pros: "The leg room and freedom of not having another seat in front of me throughout this flight was great. It made getting comfortable a lot easier."

Pros: "Amasing crew"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and surprisingly the seats were comfortable."

Cons: "Random TSA check was not needed at the end when boarding."
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are a brilliant idea!"

Pros: "The crew was efficient and friendly. The plane took off on time and landed on time."
Cons: "Boarding was slow and tedious. People still crowd around the boarding area despite there being row for the zones. Why they don't board from back to front is beyond me. The food was mediocre at best."
Pros: "Most of the crew tired especially hard to keep everyone comfortable and safe. The food was absolutely amazing."
Cons: "Other members of the crew were snarky to passengers and dismissive of questions from passengers during the early stages of the delay. We were all trapped on board for about 4 or so hours without much communication from the crew or captain which made me very anxious. We arrived 5 hrs late and it put my whole trip in jeopardy. Based on this experience, I eont be inclined to use this airline again for future trip planning. This airline will need to work hard to earn my trust back because i felt physically and emotionally unsafe throughout the experience, many times."
Cons: "Air France delayed our JFK to CDG flight. That caused us to miss our connection flight afterwards from CDG to MUC. We got a later flight luckily but one of our bags got lost and is still currently lost!!!"

Cons: "Some of the shows and movies were a bit 'trashy'. Long flight. I was in the middle seat next to an inattentive octanegarian who was nice but kept calling the flight crew to fix her mess up of the video system. No air controls on this plane - so it was overly warm. 10 hours of overly warm makes for a stinky passenger. Oof."
Pros: "Good size plane. It didn’t end up being full so there was plenty of room to move around. Quick flight and easy."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Everything except the seat. Service ("would you care for a drink/beverage?") could be better."
Cons: "I paid for a"premium" seat on one of the emergency exit rows for the extra legroom. This was next to a galley. The seat itself was no more than 18" wide (NO EXAGGERATION!!) if not less. I had to sit on an angle (one butt cheek at a time) for 9 yours. I do not have a big butt either. This seat should have been a discounted seat, not a premium seat. I am so angry about this, I will NEVER fly Air France again."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Canceled flight—absolutely no notification. Convoluted rebooking in whcuhbhey lies to us about what flights we were actually on. Spent a couple hours at Delta rebooking our trip. Lost prepaid night at hotel and dinner eaecatuon plus day of vacation."

And this is not the first time hearing same story, Air France definitely needs to disinfect the plane more thoroughly. Media center is outdated, touch screen isn’t working well, felt being punched in head every time when ppl behind you tries to touch the screen!"
Pros: "On time departure and arrival"
Pros: "Friendly people on board"
Cons: "Crew was not very responsive. It would take over 45 minutes for them to respond to a customer call. Plane landed and we were kept on runway for 1.15 hours and crew only checked in with us twice during that time. People were panicking regarding missing their connections"
Pros: "It didn't take longer to board! Crew with great attitude Take off and landing were just great"
Cons: "My sandwich, it contained too much pepper, I mean too muuuuuch My narrow seat No entertainment"

Cons: "The chairs, for whatever reason, after just not that comfortable. Too squishy and they make noise when you adjust your position. I fidget a lot on flights so I felt like I was making a lot of noise. Also the plane didn't have cold air, do you get toasty pretty quick."
Cons: "The leg-space is very narrow The chair is very tiring No entertainment at all Food was tasteless But most surprising was that we were on stand by for our connecting flight. Though we bought the tickets months ago and we got our luggage checked in all the way to the final destination."
Cons: "Food was not good."

Pros: "Nothing much as an Economy passenger"
Cons: "Single lady travelling and the seat was between two men on both legs. Asked ticketing at Chennai nd he said you will get in Abu Dhabi and did not give boarding pass for the Second leg of flight. Came to Abudhabi and tried to get boarding pass for seating not between two males but the ticketing agent lied to me “ go run your flight is leaving” and gave me seating between two males for 15 hour flight requested"
Pros: "comfortable flight"

Cons: "Food was terrible , the plane is old seats are really small"
Cons: "The staff at the Abu Dhabi airport."
Pros: "Flight left on time and arrived at destination even earlier"

Cons: "The flight attending crew from Chennai as well as for the Abu Dabi flight ignore request for coffee or water service. Only after turning light several times they responded. Even when they were passing the halls with water and you called them they would not stopped. I love the soft landing of all pilots flights."
Cons: "If you are flying from AUH to JFK, they pre-clear you for US Customs. What they don't tell you is that the cut-off to get to the gate is one hour before departure. I took a leisurely stroll down to the gate when he signs said 'boarding soon' and was denied entry to the flight. The next one was in seven hours, so I spent the night in the terminal. The big slap in the face, aside from how rude the staff were: they won't just put you on the next flight. You have to buy a new ticket, full fare. It cost me more to get home than the original round trip ticket did to begin with. Trying to discuss this is fruitless - they are absolutely not interested in helping, but instead use phrases like "you are the one that is wrong" and "why should we pay for your mistake". Essentially, I was held hostage in Abu Dhabi and forced to pay a heavy charge to leave."
Pros: "I like the Menue idea. I like the service. The food was served frequently."

Cons: "Entertainment choice for Indians limited and poor content. Unremarkable English movies & music. Quantity but not quality"

Pros: "Traveled from India to Minnesota flight was nice got to sit in first class seat were larger"
Pros: "Service was competent and I commend the stewards and stewardesses for making the best of a poor situation"
Cons: "Seats are narrow and leg room is tiny. I am likely not alone in saying that I would pay a little extra for my ticket if all our seats were a bit more roomy and leg room a bit wider. And I am not talking about just your upgrades - I detest such a la carte pricing that only make money for the company without considering comfort for the customers."
Pros: "Staff was fantastic, bathrooms kept very clean & food was good."

Cons: "Food was bad"

Pros: "We flew 1st class. The crew going over was AMAZING!!!!"
Cons: "LHR-ATL first class was awful. My spouse lost her seat to an aircrew member. (I'm very sick and we chose being across from each other for a reason). Boarding on both ends was horribly done. Last minute gate assignments, no crew, delay, boarded after coach. Hard bed, no service, crying baby"
Pros: "That I got home"
Cons: "Haha where do I start. The experience overall was poor. One of my flights was canceled by British and they claimed I cancelled it. It was a hot mess all the way around. This left we standing outside the airport in Indi for nearly an hour."
Pros: "The crew was behaving nice."
Cons: "The website is horrible and full of bugs. In Flight tracker, the same flight returned two results, one in cancelled status and another in delayed status. I called british airways to update my personal details as their website didn't allow me to enter details, the staff messed up the details."
Cons: "Arrangenents for wheel chairs at London were poor compared to Chicago which was excellent ."

Pros: "Flight left on time. Crew were helpful and friendly. Asian vegetarian meal was good. I had tomato rice, broccoli and eggplant as side dish. Toilets were clean."
Cons: "Breakfast was not great. I had asian vegetarian meal. I had uppuma, mini dosa and sambar and they were tasty. But I also had bread, sweet bread and a piece of sweet cake. Three kinds of bread is not necessary. Too much carbo. Please provide, vegetables like cucumber, tomato and carrot with breakfast. Also chick peas without spices and rava kesari can be served with breakfast."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable. The crew are OK. No fruit juice or cool drinks."
Pros: "The staff were professional. Boarding was orderly. The flight was smooth. The lavatories were clean."
Cons: "As a tall man, even with an entire row to myself, it was impossible to be comfortable. I had to fold myself like origami to fit. My head and neck was pitched forward, even with the seat back reclined. You got me, next time I’ll spring for business class."
Cons: "Rude staff, incompetent customer care"
Pros: "Not much, maybe the food"
Cons: "Poor seats, terrible tv screens and entertainment options. I will not be traveling with BA again. Took forever to get on/off the plane"

Pros: "Good, current entertainment selection. Ample beverages and foods (though nutrition concerns). Pleasant crew."
Cons: "80+ year old disabled person placed in aisle seat next to me (middle). She was sweet and thoughtful, but couldn't even rise from her seat without assistance. This pinned the window passenger and me in our seats for 8.5 hours with only one bathroom break -- the stuff out of nightmares and ABSOLUTELY UNFORGIVABLE! Of course, crew would not accommodate any changes. ** Why should I ever choose BA again? ** (Seriously, I'd like to hear your answer.) Food nutrition -- generally tasty, but carb-heavy, fatty and salty. A de facto salad meal option would have been appreciated."
Pros: "Good hospitality"
Cons: "As to drinks like juices etc there is no suffecient supply"
Pros: "When I got off the fight."
Cons: "The boarding process is a mess. The flight crew is in total disarray. My friend beside me on the flight got the food 45 minutes before me. Then the second time they gave food out the last 5 rows didn’t get any bc they did bring enough. Just a total mess."
Pros: "The meals are delightful and the people are very respectful."

Pros: "My gluten free meal was delivered and acceptable, the seats were comfortable and the crew was exceptionally helpful and friendly."
Cons: "After first class boarded, the remainder of the passengers lined up all at once. As it was a large plane, there were two entrances and it was hard for them to keep up and direct us to the proper door. It was a minot issue."
Pros: "Great entertainment system, and good food. Thank you for the free wine, blanket and pillow."
Cons: "Seats in the back are very uncomfortable. Seats are too close together. If the passenger in front reclines there is no room at all. I assume space was taken out to accommodate the first class cubes."
Cons: "Seats were way too uncomfortable for a trans atlantic flight. Our seats from atl to lhr were much better The crew didn't hand us customs forms in the back of the plane"
Pros: "We were lucky we boarded early because i had reserved the seats in Premium economy and had a baby with us. That's the only good part about the journey"
Cons: "Horrible food No USB or charging ports in aircraft. The plane felt like decade old. Crappy seats with shitty monitors, reclining mechanisms Crew kept disturbing us for food when we were sleeping and kept serving us the meal we didn't order. When u hit the call button no answer! Ba missed our bags stroller and car seat. Thanks but no thanks BA. No one at athe counter to answer"
Pros: "1. MAA - Boarding - grouping should have been more professional"
Cons: "1. I had filled up API information & am an Executive club member. My India contact number is available on record. In spite of that I did not get SMS about flight ETD details or alert. 2. First meal was served about 1 hour after departure, which is Ok. The second meal was served after 8 hours, towards end of flight. 3. BA 36 takes off at ETD 05.30 & travels east. It is always day time as it flies."
Cons: "The only International flight I ever paid extra for one 2nd baggage. That took away my savings on ticket, and never going to fly on British airways as long as they charge for 2nd checked in baggage."
Pros: "Liked the high life entertainment and the flight attendants were friendly"
Cons: "I get a very limited amount of time to visit my girlfriend who is currently living back at home in England and spent nearly two hours sitting on the plane following the landing and then another two hours or so waiting for my bag to show up and finally filled out info to have it sent to me so that I wasn't wasting any further amount of time on a plane or in the airport. With limited service it was just an overall terrible experience, for my girlfriend even more so than me, as she began to get worried during the delay in the flight arrival up until I got into the airport and got service so that I was able to explain the delay and that I would be out soon. Which wasn't the case since I continued waiting for my bag to arrive for the next couple hours. What should've been a time of joy being reunited with my girlfriend turned into a time of stress for all involved and several hours overdue."
Cons: "Two children screaming their lungs out for the 8 hours, and kicking the seats in front of them. The fact that there was no food choice by the time I was served."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Crew was awesome"
Cons: "My seat covering was too short and plastic part exposed. Luckily empty seat was used to replace actual seat"

Cons: "Needs more airflow!!!! It got stuffy and warm."

Pros: "The experience in baggage counter was pathetic.They charged me more than $200 for my third baggage."
Cons: "The staff at Chennai Airport was unfriendly"
Pros: "Amazing airline to travel I will definitely used again in the future"
Pros: "I liked everything about the flight, very comfortable seats (Club World), great staff who were very thoughtful and helpful with our situation (disabled person). The check-in personnel at Chennai were very considerate and helpful, much appreciated. The wheelchair arrangements at Chennai were excellent. The food on the flight was very good and accommodated our dietary restrictions. Entertainment choices (movies) were quite good, too, and managed to get some pretty good sleep as well. The lavatories had green/red light system for availability, visible from our seats, which was very helpful. The lavs were quite well maintained and clean. The flight was on time. and it arrived safely, which is the main thing."
Cons: "The transition from the flight to the terminal at LHR was not optimal, though the staff were trying their best. The "jetty" ramp way for normal deplaning was broken, they said, so they brought a set of steep aluminum steps instead. Navigating these steep steps was not possible for some passengers (difficulty walking and with steps), so finally they called a mechanical lift device (like a fork lift) to help those passengers, many in wheelchairs, who couldn't manage the steps. We had to wait for at least 30-40 minutes on the plane for the lift to arrive and stand outside on its platform up in the air, waiting to be ready to descend to ground level. This was pretty uncomfortable and it made our connection time very short. To compound matters, once on the ground, there was a wheelchair available for only one of us, though 2 had been requested, but as on other flights through LHR, there was unfortunately not enough staff to push it through Term. 5 to the connecting flight. So, I had to do that myself, along with managing my own luggage, which was a bit challenging, as I was tired by then. Our flight connection time, already much shortened by the deplaning situation, was evaporating steadily. Fortunately, there was an excellent staff member from Heathrow, who had been assigned to push someone else's wheelchair, who guided our group of wheelchairs, complete with hand luggage and children, though the maze of Term. 5, through very busy security and finally to our gate. We would have gotten lost and even if not, would almost surely have missed the flight without this guide facilitating this trek. We made the connecting flight with barely 5 minutes to spare."
Pros: "Prompt service"
Cons: "Tea was excellent on Chennai London flight but not that good between London and Chicago"
Pros: "entertainment had a god variety"
Cons: "food was just awful"
Cons: "Paid for tickets in advance and were not given assigned seats until arrival at the airport. Were placed on standby as the flight was oversold. Thankfully we didn't miss the flight but this caused some unecessary stress."
Cons: "First of all, it was not Finnair it was British Airways, we had to walk on tarmac to plane and then carry our baggage up the steps, TV screen was old couldn't see it, did not get to pick my seat. Ended up sitting with some guys seat reclined almost in my lap for 9 hrs. Worst flight I have ever had!!!"
Pros: "Great overhead bin, good entertainment system, but I found that on both flights the screen touch screen is a bit off, I need to press on lower side of the button to get it work properly."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic from London. There was no call for regular passenger boarding."
Pros: "Crew was good food good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 2.5 hours as they were taking out luggage of passengers who did not make it. Yet my baggage from my connecting flight did not make it and suppose to come 1 day later."
Pros: "Was able to move a passenger so that we had an empty seat between us in a row of three."
Cons: "BA check-in system down and could not get a boarding pass. Could not proceed without one and could only get one via a long wait in the "assistance" line. Departed an hour late due to a passenger not getting clearance to leave the country and then for them to remove their luggage."

Pros: "Good entertainment option"
Cons: "Very delayed"
Pros: "That I at least had an aisle seat."
Cons: "I used to fly USAir all the time. The service was excellent. Following the merger, not so much anymore. The seat was very cramped. So much so that I had trouble walking when I got off the plane, and I'm in pretty good shape. I used to get upgraded often with USAir. Now that I have 3 times the mileage built up, it never happens. This wasn't the worst American flight , however. I recently had the displeasure of flying on one of the new planes, and that seat was so upright, cramped, and hard, it was like being on Spirit! (And I refuse to get on their planes ever again) my entire body was sore and stiff after flying on the new AA jet."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew"

We had 4 people in our row (including my son in my lap), when I let my son walk down the aisle I noticed rows with only 1 person. Flight crew should of asked if someone wanted to move for more space. They ran over the guy's foot across the aisle from me & were rude about it."

Pros: "The pilot apologized for the delay and promised to get us there as quick as he can, if that was possible. But, it was thoughtful of him."
Cons: "Although I was informed that the flight was delayed, it was too late, I was already at the airport. A two delay ended up being three hours delay. When it was time to board, we had to wait for a crew member, further delaying boarding. Finally on the flight, I was served cold coffee!!! There was no blanket!"

Cons: "I missed my flight in Atlanta heading to LA on my way to Brisbane, Australia on Saturday 16th July. The ground staff wasn't at all helpful in trying to get me on another flight and in fact sent me to Delta! The lady there couldn't have been nicer and more helpful. Sadly I wasn't compensated at all and had to pay to re-book the flights on the Sunday 17th. On my return from Brisbane, American Airlines had cancelled my flight to Atlanta as they said I was a 'no show' heading out. Thankfully I was able to get a seat on stand by. So, no I'm not a happy customer."
Pros: "thiughy it was a good price on the fare. Now I know why"
Cons: "The representatives and staff at your LaGuardia airport need some serious customer service training. Very rude - no one seemed to know what was going on. Flights were pulling up they rebooked and they were fussing at customers. Understaffed and delaying and canceling flights. Would not recommend to anyone to fly with them. Even on connection changed gates 3 times. So customer unfriendly!"
Pros: "The Professionalism"
Cons: "There is not nothing to say"
Cons: "The crew on the return flight home were a bit nasty..."
Cons: "This flight never happened due to an airport and schedule shift caused by the first leg being cancelled."

Cons: "Security going through my luggage over a candle"
Pros: "Flight and flight crew were wonderful. No problems at all."
Cons: "I was stranded in Miami airport because I was bumped from every flight. I was late to my 0500 flight from Houston because I circled the airport 3 times looking for the rental car return. Tried to check in 5 min. before boarding time. Was told I had to be rebooked. No problem. Next flight left about 0830. Made it to Miami. Was bumped every flight that day. Was #1 and #2 on waiting list for last 4 flights of the day, but was not given a seat. Others who were either employees or also waiting somehow got a seat though. How is this? Had to sleep in airport and pray to make the AM flight. I'm so disappointed that we are not picked in waiting order. No, all the others did not have priority seating or something. Passengers talk while waiting, so I know I'm not assuming this. We also heard the employees conversations about "hoping to get a seat too". None of us were told our new flight assignments were "stand by" either. If I was aware of this, I would have made another flight arrangement or could have driven to my destination! I paid for a ticket, yet employees on stand by flight get priority. Not right!"
Pros: "Flight from LGA to ATL was good. No complaints."
Cons: "Turbulence. I understand this is out of the crews control."

Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "I had the worst experience of my life. I was trying to go to Miami for my dads funeral an made a mistake booking the wrong airport an I didn't know until Tsa told me I had the wrong boarding pass. So when I tried to have American change the airport so that I can take another flight not only were they careless about my loss nobody tried helping me rebook they just told me the only thing I can pay $200 plus another ticket for about $600 or use another airline it may be cheaper i thought that was so rude an they would have a little sympathy but they did not. I end up spending $328 an using a whole other airline for a honest mistake I'm just very dissatisfied an disappointed that American airline would do that to me on one of the hardest times in my life an I hope they never treat anybody they way they did me."
Cons: "They forgot too board snacks and not enough leg space"
Pros: "I was reassigned to another flight due to problems with the airplane"
Cons: "There were problems with the airplane. I left Miami 5 hours later after requesting to be put on another flight."
Cons: "First off, the flight was delayed. And then when I was boarding the plane I was forced to check my carry-on bag. They claimed there wasn't any overhead storage left, however when I got on the flight, there was still a lot of room. Very disappointed I had to be delayed at baggage claim for no reason."
Cons: "It was late. On Wednesday Day 2 of my travel due to American canceling my flight the previous day. To add insult to injury, this flight was an hour late. I think you need a new slogan: "American - the unreliable airline""
Cons: "Flight canceled 2 hours before boarding. Was automatically swapped to a 5am red eye flight with layover. Had to find somewhere to spend the night last minute, and missed work on Monday. The airline never contacted me about the change."
