Cons: "More food, drinks & snacks. Especially on such long flights."

Pros: "Everything is great"
Pros: "The staff and there were great movies on the flight."

Pros: "Left earlier than expected and accomedations with movies and food was great"
Cons: "They were limited with certain meals"
Pros: "The crew was polite and efficient."
Cons: "I had requested special vegetarian meal. Although I did receive this meal, it was barely a meal, the full course was not provided. Only the main course and salad was provided. The bread(bun) and dessert were missing. It's not clear to me why vegetarians would be deprived of a full course meal."
Cons: "Terriable service"
Pros: "Smooth, on time, comfortable, good entertainment and decent food. Brand new plane"
Cons: "The crew manager shouted to me and my 1 year old boy during the flight as my son cried. They did not offer any help, my family got insulted and cried. The worst flying experience in my life, will never take that again."

Pros: "There was more leg room and the food was excellent!"

Pros: "The crew assisted my wife on boarding the plane."
Cons: "Because of her condition we should get more legroom for her."
Pros: "Crew was great, entertainment was diverse, blankets were comfortable, and food was good. I think I'll make Cathay Pacific my airline for East Asia US travel."
Cons: "The number of ads before in flight entertainment could start (i.e. movie), but that's a trade off I'm guessing, so not a big concern."

The captain was very pleasant during his in-flight announcements; complete and thorough. The bathrooms were quite clean."

Cons: "Plane was very warm"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "The crew was excellent and helpful."
Cons: "Some seats could not be made upright and passengers had to move around during landing time. While serving food, it took close to 2 hours to start serving everyone and the pre-ordered meal was served. Very delayed."
Cons: "6 and a half hours delayed. Poor communications from the airline about the delay and when the flight would leave. Some of the times given were clearly unrealistic as equipment was still in-route to DFW at departure time"

Cons: "did not like having to deplane then reboard"
Pros: "The captain landed the aircraft exact at the time he committed when the flight took off"

Pros: "I fly CP to Bangkok because they have best schedule and shortest trip from Hong Kong to Bangkok - have flown 15+ times"
Cons: "The food is AWFUL - the menu is geared to chinese (I guess) and the flavors are undesirable but I don't fly for the food; the english entertainment selection is limited but adequate"
Cons: "Delays Boarding was delayed and nobody communicated anything to us just left us sitting there with no clue. The food tasted like metal."

Pros: "Food was incredible and the staff were so accommodating! Absolutely loved it!"
Pros: "Excellent, kind, professional crew and timely flight."
Pros: "amazing they offer a meal!"
Cons: "as it was a red eye flight it would've been great if there were more seats open so one could sleep. the leg room is pretty small even for a not-tall person (5'4")"
Pros: "Overall experience is good"
Pros: "Great service. Nice plane. Flight attendants were attractive"
Pros: "Good communication about departure delay, check in was fast and efficient."
Cons: "I had to ask crew repeatedly for a simple snack, meals were very slow to arrive, entertainment system we'd glitchy, food was just ok."
Pros: "After being unexpectedly upgraded to premium economy at the gate, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the seats were even more comfortable than I would have expected for this section. The reclining pitch was excellent - even for the people sitting behind. There is a hassock-like panel to elevate one's legs about 45 degrees. Almonds instead of peanuts, a menu option with a main of a nice piece of steak (that could be cut with an airline knife!), amenity kit... Very happy passenger."
Pros: "The quick response of flight attendants and the comfort of the economy seats."
Pros: "It seems like it has little more space than other airline I use to ride for international. Entertainment has more verity to watch. Personally I thought I book the seat within 48 hours but they said it didn't go though but I got better seat though a ticket counter."
Cons: "Website is little confused and try to book the seat arrange wasn't work . Try to book mileage,book seats,see satuts of schedule over all Website is little confusing."
Cons: "48 hr preboarding online checkin is nonexistent. Error messages via link."
Pros: "The food is great"
Pros: "Excellent service. Very clean, mostly."
Cons: "Tight seats. Not the worst, but still tight. Bathrooms could get messy and unstocked."
Pros: "Smooth, quiet and comfortable overnight flight from Vancouver to JFK"
Pros: "The staff both when checking in and on board were excellent. The seating space was better than other international flights we have taken in the past and since. The food was better than what we received in the other flight we took later the same day (with another airline). We highly recommend Cathay Pacific."
Cons: "The entertainment options could be better - but this is just a minor flaw in their overall service."
Pros: "excellent entertainment selection"
Cons: "no bottled water, the tap water tasted terrible and chemically treated! also the flight was delayed 15 minutes but ended up landing 50 minutes late, i cannot see how they were not able to make up the time in the air for something so small. I also saw premium economy and asked for an upgrade, they wanted $1000, which when i saw the cabin and the amenities was happy i didn't pay for because compared to Japan Airlines which charges a fraction of this for the upgrade, Cathay is a shame."
Pros: "The entertainment options were good with many choices to choose from."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable with little leg room, especially when the seat in front reclines back. A few years back I flew the same route with Cathay Pacific where the seats had hard backs and reclining did not affect the seat behind you. That was much better."
Pros: "Only one thing is good, which was the cabin crew of Cathay Pacific provided an excellent service on the plane. I saw smiles on the face and they were really helpful."
Cons: "Don't know why I couldn't check in online.. It made my flight experience terrible because I can only check in when I arrived at the airport, my husband and I had to sit separately. Food are not good in flight and the plane was so bouncing most of the time, it made me sick and have headache really bad."
Pros: "I've really enjoyed the comfort and the stellar services by Cathay Pacific staff. Keep up the amazing service!"
Pros: "* Good food twice, with readily available snacks upon request * Nice flight attendants who are ready to help * Big, nice, new-feeling plane, lots of bathrooms * Lots of information along the way * Diverse entertainment options, including some good non-blockbuster movie options from countries other than the US"
Cons: "* I couldn't get comfortable in the seat. I don't know why * They had us shut the window shades at a certain point and never had us reopen then, resulting in a 30-hour night for me that made me really uncomfortable (especially because every once in a while I'd get this wonderful burst of sun from a shade someone had opened and shut suddenly). * I didn't realize that I could just ask for refreshments whenever I wanted. I would have liked a flight attendant to tell me that from the beginning. * There were tons of disposables in use for meals. I brought my own silverware and water bottle to avoid using disposables, but it would be nice if they found some solution to that. * This is a small thing, but every time there was an announcement on the PA, the audio on my movie would drop back down to the default level (i.e., inaudible). I had to keep raising the volume and rewinding to catch up what I had missed."
Cons: "The food could have been a a bit better."
Pros: "What can I say about this awesome flight with great crew and a free upgrade? Fan-dabby-dozy-tastic!"
Pros: "Comfortable economy seats. Excellent experienced staff."
Cons: "Food was so so. Entertainment system is old and a bit slow."
Pros: "Fast onboarding, quick flight, travel agent went above and beyond fixing my ticket"
Cons: "My ticket had to be reissued and I was the last one to board the plane."
Cons: "Being late and I missed my next flight. I talked with the customer service to book me on next flight from Dallas to London. They did that and told me that they moved my luaggage to the new booking but didn’t happen and I was going around in London looking for my luggage."
Cons: "One of the worst experience I’ve had, if not the worst. Lack of communication between flight attendants at gate was the main reason for missing our flight, after 2 delays from the previous flight. When we got to the gate they closed it at that moment, earlier than it should have. A Mr. Fenney, person in charge at the gate, didn’t help much. Just went through the motion and as slow as possible trying to help us. It seemed he just wanted to pretend he was helping us. Worse was his attitude when telling is the gate has already closed, didn’t do anything to help us, nothing at all. We had to literally get information out of him. We then went to customer service were the same thing happened, a lack of care that we missed our flight due to things out of our control. Even to the point where the agent told us “be sure to be there on time this time”, like if it was our fault we missed it (we told her the details of our situation). Till this point they don’t seem to care. They left about 15 people, that i know of, hanging. If they had better comunication between gates and waited a miserably 5 more minutes (although they closed the gate earlier then they should have) everyone would have made it. Throughout the whole process we noticed that american airlines employees did not care that many on that first flight had connection flights. They were just going through the motion, slowly while all of us were a bit desperate knowing that the layover time was going to be very close."
Cons: "The flight to Heathrow was delayed by 2.30 hours while other flights to London was on time"
Pros: "Good hospitality"
Cons: "As to drinks like juices etc there is no suffecient supply"
Cons: "Leg room/space BA offers is calculated for short and small body frame passengers and it is on not acceptable. It feels like cattle Wagon. BA should show consideration for real passengers not some sort of statistical average. I am 6'4" and sitting in your plane's cabin inflicts hours of body pain. The space given is sufficient for children and teenagers. Also sitting in the hot cabin for extended amount of time is extremely uncomfortable. Why there is no cooling and proper air ventilation right from the beginning?"
Pros: "On time, friendly staff"
Cons: "No entertainment in board and the AC dripped on me."
Pros: "Ease of boarding, no fuss no muss. Premium economy worth the price"
Cons: "Kosher food was frozen - inedible. Chicken dry. Worst meal ever on a plane"
Pros: "The entertainment and the service"
Cons: "Both legs delayed, almost missed connection due to delay and the crew on the flight didn't seem to care. When we asked if they could inform the next flight that our flight wasn't delayed, the stewards response was "our planes don't wait for anyone". Real friendly. Wish Southwest flew to Europe!!!!"
Pros: "Impressive airplane at first sight when boarding."
Cons: "Blankets were a little bit dirty. Screen was very small compared to other air crafts. Food was... British. So it was OK. Crew could have been better."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The replacement plane was very old. The entertainment screen was actually smaller than my phone, with just 4 low definition movie selections that started at preset times. My phone had 45 HD movies that started whenever I wanted them to. Toilets were dirty and in poor condition."
Pros: "Hard to find anything positive."
Cons: "Each leg of the trip was delayed by so much that I missed each following connection. Got to Prague and found out my luggage had been lost. After filing a claim about 8:30 pm on the 19th, I had to take a taxi into town because my hotel car had been taken out of service for the night. Rotten trip to Prague."
Pros: "My husband left his wallet on the plane and everybody was extremely helpful...we were able to get it back intact thanks to all of their wonderful Dallas staff!!!"
Pros: "Nicer and cleaner airplane, food was above average and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Chaotic boarding, stewardess hit me with the food cart while I was seated and didn't apologiza and looked at me in a very rude manner."
Cons: "I usually like plane food, but the gluten free meal just was not good. The chicken was very tough. I got a bottle of vinaigrette, but no salad!? Initially, I got no GF snack. Very shortly before landing a received a cold fritata in a box with warning "the contents may be hot" or not..."
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent, the crew was very professional, overall the flight was very pleasant"
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours late on the take off"
Cons: "The flight from AMA to Dfw was cancelled . I was told in March , yet no one told us . We had to book that trip ourselves & pay for it out of pocket , even though it was supposed to be part of this flight . We called the airline trying to rebook that flight & was told they couldn't till the next day , yet we could go online & book it ourselves . Pretty poor way to run a business . If we hadn't gone online to check in the night before , we wouldn't have known about the cancellation till we showed up at the airport . Very disappointed with your service"
Pros: "This was actually smooth, fast and on time. Flight Attendants were very courteous and helpful, one filled my water bottle so I could equalize the pressure, Food was good and I was in economy, I didn't have to pay extra for first row in section, which was a huge plus. Entertainment system worked well."
Cons: "Nothing, great experience. They didn't let me check in before 3 hour window was only hitch, and then gate didn't come in till 90 minutes later."
Pros: "Good food Seats were reasonably comfortable Boarding process went ok"
Cons: "Ticket sold as BA, but was shifted to AA (I'm assuming this was due to overbooking) Old aircraft - no power on seats, old TV displays, limited movie selection."
Pros: "When the flight was delayed and I missed my connection, the crew had a new ticket for me by the time we landed."
Cons: "2 hr delay in Paris very poor choice of movies"
Cons: "The entire trip"
Pros: "The seats were too cramped leg wise is why the lower rating"
Pros: "American Airline agent in Madrid was very helpful during check-in by finding us comfortable seats together."
Cons: "We could not do check-in on-line. Same as on the way from SFO to London and then Madrid. This is absolutely unacceptable. We plan neither use British Airways ourselves nor recommend it to any of our friends or family members in the foreseen future."
Pros: "Short jump to Dallas"
Cons: "Didn't even offer or apologize for no drink service. Prefer Southwest-excellent customer service. Airport check in was terrible. Was placed in 3 different lines before the computer checked us through. Worst I have EVER experienced."
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: "direct route to madrid"
Cons: "low quality entertaining system low quality meals"
Pros: "The staff are good, and that is probably the only good part. This trip is operated by American Arilines"
Cons: "The airplain is too old. It is time to upgrade. Each seat should has its own TV. There should be a charger too on this long flight."
Pros: "Travelling buisnes means a lot to me."
Pros: "Location in the aircraft"
Cons: "Our reserved seats were not available"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Not enough newer movies for a 10+ hour flight. I am not a movie-buff but only managed to find 3 movies I had not seen before. Monitor for video was hazy and hard to see the movies with the overhead lights on the whole flight. Flight attendants for my area (business class upstairs) did not seem to want to be there, did the bare minimum, felt like the attendants you usually get on any airlines US domestic flights. Yes, daytime flight, but did the lights have to be on the whole flight? Had 6-8 kids in 10-15 year range that were running around the whole flight, maybe if the lights had been at least dimmed they could have settled down so the other travelers who would have liked to sleep could... Food servings were smaller than usual, but since it was also unusually uninspired and tasteless I guess that was ok. Plane was dirty (visibly so on, f.ex. the sides of seats, traytable, and bathroom) and it was not just from the ongoing journey but from previous flights."
Pros: "nice flight, on time. No food expected."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Ir was an American Airlines plane, had really small and olf screens that didn't work."
Pros: "The food was solid, legroom was spacious even in economy. Chairs lean back pretty far. The staff was courteous and came by several times with water and juice before the end of the flight (and we had scones with clotted cream... win)."
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "The plane took off and landed on time Good with giving water with regularity."
Cons: "The Plane was so cold I needed to wear a sweater, scarf, down jacket and a blanket, compared to only having to wear a button up long sleeve shirt for the flight to germany. When i would get up to go to the bathroom I could see a large portion of the passengers wearing winter coats, hats, scarves, and hoods to keep warm. The temperature was never addressed during the flight. The flight crew with one exception could not have been in a worse mood. For example whenever they needed to tell people what the choices for drinks are they gave a big sigh and rolled their eyes. it seemed as if they had been working for 36 hours without a break and they had to smell trash the whole time. I am very unhappy with the way american airlines handled the british airways scheduled flight and i will make sure to not book with them again."
Pros: "We were like sardines caned for 8 hours. Horrible American Airlines airplane. Lesson learned for next time."
Cons: "asking one of the flight crew to give me a snack for my child was initially reused with the excuse that she didn't have any. Came back after few moments with an angry approach and the snacks showed up all the sudden when asking another flight attendant"
Pros: "Departed on time"
Pros: "The flight attendants were generous and helpful. I like that there was lots of water served, and lots of extra snacks and more water at the back of the plane for those who needed it."
Cons: "The light controlled by the switch at my chair illuminated the seat of my neighbor, due to a mis-alignment that the stewardess was unable to correct. The light switch of my neighbor also illuminated her seat, which meant that she had two lights to read by, even though she wanted to sleep, and I had no lights to read by, even though I had a lot of important work I was hoping to get done on the flight. The stewardess suggested that I switch from the aisle to the center seat (occupied by my neighbor's husband), but I did not want to switch seats like that because the seating was 5-across in the center and I didn't want to have to climb over two people unrelated to me every time I needed to use the bathroom. There was a sparse selection of movies, but it included a few I hadn't already seen, which helped the time pass - much better than my flight from ORD to CDG where the plane didn't even have personal entertainment systems and the common system only played TV shows."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to equipment malfunction almost missed my connection in Dallas onward to Frankfurt"
Pros: "Accommodated me when I was just off the check in time. Provided me with special meals that I had ordered inflight. Flight crew was very courteous. Enjoyed the new movies."
Cons: "Couldn't charge my laptop on a long flight. The tray table was a bit forward and did not have the cup holding circle. Got a bit hungry and had to bring out my own sandwiches that I had luckily packed, saw others snacking too; an extra snack would be nice, although, they did serve an ice cream which did not seem to be enough on a long day flight. Was an AA flight instead of a BA flight as shown in the itinerary."
Pros: "In flight personel."
Cons: "Machine was defect in Dallas. Ground crew must know how long it takes to get new plane. But official delay kept increasing every half hour."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food was awful and the entertainment system was old and working only intermittently."
Pros: "All overhead bins taken by people several rows behind our seats leaving no place to put small carry on bag but ulnder the seat. This left no leg room and was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "on time and efficient"
Cons: "breakfast food was not very good as poorly nutritious"
Cons: "Well organized loading, consistent beverage service"
Pros: "One of the few non-stop flights between Seattle and Philadelphia. Convenient times for my travel needs"
Cons: "There are 9 boarding groups some of which have no one in them. I don't understand why. Seats don't have screens for entertainment so you have to use your own device to. Make sure you have extra batteries since there is no power to charge on board."
Pros: "I had nice leg room as I was in the exit row"
Cons: "There weren’t any USB chargers which was confusing because the flight was 5+ hours long. There were no media options either, or blankets and the plane got cold."
Pros: "seating assignment"
Cons: "wish the crews were more pleasant. some were pretty rude to some passengers"
Pros: "The aircratf and on time operation"
Cons: "Gate agents not following AA.com policies to charge extra fees"
Pros: "There’s nothing better than a non-stop."
Cons: "Oy, they offered an $800 credit if I let them bump me. But they had no way to get me to my destination! I guess instead of asking for volunteers, they should have asked for people who really didn’t want to go. Then the flight attendant announced, “we’re really low on food”. Really? This is a SEVEN hour flight!"
Pros: "seemed more comfortable on this plane, still squishy."
Cons: "really.. a 6 hour flight with just a cookie.."
Cons: "it was not BA flight American Airlines. For a 6-hour cross-country flight, there was no entertainment of any kind. More than that, no blanket or a pillow was available which made the trip so much worse. Worst of all, the last 90 minutes of the flight all the toilets ran out of water so they can't even be flushed. First time I have ever come across such a problem. Absolutely terrible."
Pros: "Boarding and service was nice"
Cons: "We were delayed an hour because the plan was in the hanger! Why? We were all there, didn't American know the plane should be at he gate! No escplanation as to why the plane was not there other than it was in the hanger! Airlines need to let the customers be flexible especially when are!"
Pros: "Movies and plugs"
Cons: "This WAS the worst flight I have ever been on! First no pilot then no gas. Then turbulence the entire flight basically. AND THEN when we landed we couldn't even get off of the plain because there was no one to help us off??!!! Also they were out of food. It was just over all horrible."
Pros: "Free beverage"
Cons: "My bag was lost and it still hasn't showed up at the airport. Seems like I would get some kind of credit of some kind for this inconvenience."
Pros: "The pilot was charming, and really hugged Mt. Rainier on the way in - Made for an incredible view in the moonlight!"
Pros: "Had good bathroom access and place to stand in the back galley so you could exercise and stretch as this was a connecting flight and I had been in the air a long time."
Cons: "The older woman stewardess was rude. I tried to give her my papers and she ignored me. So I put them in the pocket and the man next to me saw what happened and she responded to him. Curt. The plane is old and no individual TV. The food choices were very limited. I felt like cattle rather than a relaxing flight. Flying use to be fun and exciting and part of a great trip. Now it is endured to get on a trip."
Pros: "I was upgraded to the comfort economy after waiting 10 hours at DFW for my flight."
Cons: "After being in DFW airport for 10hrs all I wanted to do was watch a movie on board and sleep. Go figure, my TV didn't work. I called the attendant and she said she would reset them. The "resetting process" took a while. She attempted, and the other stewardess did as well. They said that the TV issue that *some* of the people were experiencing wasn't able to be fixed by them and only by the company that provides it's service. So there wasn't anything that could be done. I know that at least the two guys that were traveling next to me had issues with the tv monitors as well. It was just driving it home that I will never fly on American Airlines again. I don't ask for much these days while flying, it's not like it's a luxury anymore. But the saddest part is that customer satisfaction is completely out of the question. Just pay the extra money and fly another airline. -Deidre Fugate"
Cons: "No in flight movie"
Pros: "I loved how sweet the crew was. I loved the movie selection."
Cons: "The seat was completely uncomfortable. My feet are swollen and my back hurts still."
Pros: "I did not like have to stay in a hotel room when I could be sleeping in my room I'm on medication I don't even have my medicine with me because American Airlines had engine trouble in Dallas we went back to the Terminal 3 times before they ever got it fixed slit throat me late getting into Seattle and I missed the flight to Yakima I don't feel that this was my fault I didn't nothing to delay the airplanes and I walked as fast as I could to the terminal on in Seattle so I didn't have such a pleasure to little trip but your airline get put me up in a hotel but it's still not does not change the fact I have my blood pressure medicine and about 10 other medications but my blood pressure is the biggest and I will think twice before I fly Alaska Airlines again"
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "No tvs"
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and put me to fly the next day"
Pros: "I had my first experience in the Admiral's Lounge at O'Hare and enjoyed it very much."
Cons: "My traveling companion's tray table was disgusting when she folded it down for beverage service. She asked for a wet towel and the flight attendant was snarky but went to get one without even looking or asking to see what the problem was. Her entertainment console wasn't working so they reset it but instead it reset mine (two seats over) they did this again and I let them know it was resetting mine. I was told that I was not in the seat they were resetting for ...I inquired if perhaps they should try to reset mine and see if it would, in fact, fix hers..it did. When she slipped off her shoes the carpet was soaking wet. This was a really crummy, crummy flight."
Cons: "See above comments"
Cons: "3 hrs on tarmac then weather canceled flight then hoax shutdown JFK"
Cons: "Charlotte to Seattle flight: The food served in first class smelled awful. Seated in premium seating just behind first class was unfortunate due to the atrocious odor that lasted for 3+hours. There was no option for food service for the rest of the plane. Which was unfortunate as I was very hungry. Due to inconsistent notification that the plane was delayed / on-time (kept switching the notification) we opted to not get dinner in the airport..... To which the plane was was an hour late yet we were told to check in every ten minutes to see if we were boarding. There were no blankets. The plane was incredibly cold. The suggestion I received from the flight staff was to turn off the vent above my head (which I had already done.) I had brought a jacket and was wearing pants. On a 5.5 hour flight, the crew served beverages 45 minutes into the flight (per usual) and handed out a pretzel pack. They didn't come back through with water or beverages again. On other airlines, they promote water at least once an hour to keep swelling and dehydration down. Since I am a pretty frequent flier, I bring my own water. Still, coffee would have been nice. Suggestions: increase beverage service to at least twice / 5.5 hour flight and provide blankets upon request. Food choices and entertainment would also be good. Don't cook stinky dinners in first class and allow it to pollute the rest of the plane."
Cons: "3rd flight with AA this year. Luggage damaged for second time."
Cons: "The crew was talking very loudly so I couldn't sleep. It's a red eye flight! People are trying to sleep!!"
Cons: "Broken seat and terrible gogo video experience with an attendant crew that was dysfunctional together for food/beverage service. I prefer to not fly AA."
Pros: "The young woman running the admirals club front desk was excellent Friday July 29"
Pros: "Crew was apologetic"
Cons: "No automated safety briefing after 2 hour delay at gate due to congestion at seatac."
Pros: "The standard seating had good leg room."
Cons: "The seat didn't have enough padding for a 5 hour flight, I don't think I'll take another long flight on an A320."
Pros: "Pilot on return flight got us to our destination 30 minutes early (unfortunately there wasn't a gate for us to pull into so we waited 30 minutes on the Tarmac)."
Cons: "Departing flight was delayed over eleven hours because a flight attendant was ill. They actually had to fly in a flight attendant all the way from Texas to cover this Seattle to JFK flight! So our flight departed a whole day later and we missed a day of our vacation (we arrived at 7pm instead of 7am). I understand things happen but this was not weather related or a mechanical issue. This is simply poor personnel management. They should have a back-up plan if an employee falls ill. One that doesn't involve flying in an employee from another region of the country, let alone another state. The inefficiency continued on the return flight when it took a whole hour for the luggage to come out! Will avoid flying American again at any cost."
Pros: "Nothing...I had to be rerouted to Chicago to Seattle!"
Cons: "The fact that through no fault of my own, I arrived in Seattle much later than expected and my clients were not particularly happy with the delay."
Pros: "Nothing!!! WORST EXPERIENCE IVE HAD TRAVELING"
Cons: "This was the worst day we have ever had flying. Spent 12 plus hours at the airport! Got on and off planes for 6 hours because of mechanical problems. 7 hours later they canceled the flight due to crew fatigue. The customer service was horrible plane was dirty it was an horrific experience. Alaska booked us with American Airlines. I will never travel American ever again. I'm considering using a different booking site. The experience was the worst I've ever had. Kayak Alaska and American are getting bad marks from me!!!!"
Pros: "The plane was luxurious and comfortable, even in coach. Great flight."
Cons: "They must have switched my gate four or five times and delayed my flight a whole hour"
Cons: "Flight was about 20 mins late"
Cons: "Out of certain food items that should have been available"
Cons: "The flight was delayed over two hours!"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendlier than on the earlier flight"
Cons: "That I had to pay so much for an upgraded seat which I needed due to recent shoulder surgery."
Cons: "There was no flight entertainment for a cross country flight! The only option was to stream via my personally device. This would have been fine if there were outlets to charge personal devices at each set!"
Cons: "Very conjusted seats"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed twice. We got to Seattle three hours later than we were supposed to."
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and efficient. Personal entertainment provided on every seat back."
Cons: "Boarding could be improved if airline would start boarding passengers seated in the rear of the plane first."
Pros: "Quick and easy commute from desert to PNW"
Cons: "My seat was right next to the toilet. On this red eye flight it was terrible trying to sleep but randomly having a bright light on my face because someone opened the bathroom door. This is terrible design."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, smooth flight. The European cookies were a nice touch. The crew were very friendly and gave my girlfriend a blanket when she completely passed out on me. Arriving in Seattle, the plane quickly and efficiently de-boarded all passengers."
Cons: "Our first scheduled flight timed out and was cancelled, forcing everyone to de-board. We had to sleep on the airport floor and arrived at our destination very late. The flight times were poorly arranged, as we had to wait 14 hours to get on the next flight. Also, I purchased two boarding passes for both myself and my girlfriend and somehow I ended up in a later group than she did after checking in."
Pros: "The flight was fine."
Cons: "The email i received was from Alaska Airlines but what I didn't know was that it was for an American Airlines flight. Normally this is not a big deal, but in Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport the two airlines are in different terminals which required a fair amount of time to travel from one to the other. Had I not arrived at the airport early, I may have missed my flight. The confirmation email I received was labeled as an American flight, but since I received it from Alaska, I assumed I had reserved an Alaska flight. Also, the confirmation email I received from Kayak had me listed as a passenger on an Alaska flight. I'm assuming I originally booked for an Alaska flight, but later on in the confirmation process I was somehow changed to an American flight via Alaska. While I don't see this as a problem for Kayak, I think this is a situation in which your feedback could be useful to help avoid confusion for passengers in the future."
Cons: "The email system set up by Finnair to communicate that my flight had been changed was poor and, therefore, I was forced to spend 24 hours in an airport as a result. Will not ever fly Finnair again."
Cons: "Since it is our Airlines priority should have been given to its passengers. Flight was awfully delayed thereby wasting more than half a day. Return flight was worse. We landed at 1.30 pm and luggage was not in the belt it was supposed to be as announced . It’s a shame that we had to endure sleepless nights and miserable time in the airport. Swore never to travel by AirIndia again."
Pros: "Flight in Time"
Cons: "There is a lot of difference between flights experience from San Francisco to Delhi and Delhi, India to San Francisco. India to San Francisco was little better. Service was very poor. Food was not on time and quality and quantity was poor. Get your own stuff to save yourself from starving."

Cons: "Flight delayed."
Pros: "Again, I did not require much service."
Cons: "An on time departure would have been preferred."
Cons: "Leg room was poor. All the aisle and window seats were being sold at extra rates. Entertainment system was pre-historic with very limited choices. Food was bland and nothing appealing. The staff, for most part was invisible. They appeared during the serving of the meals and then vanished."
Cons: "I purchased seats through justfly but air india refused to honor my seat selection. In fact this happened earlier between SFO to Delhi and Delhi to Pune as well. Money down the drain."

Pros: "Crew were really responsive"
Cons: "Entertainment never worked. They couldnt turn of lights due to technical problems Delayed by 2 hrs due to fuel loading issues No toilet essentials available from first hour of the flight"
Cons: "They gave my assigned seat (unpaid though) to some one else and gave 3 separate seats in far off aisels for me and my 4 year and 9 year old kids. I had an ordeal at airport with AI staff and they didn't care, same experience with crew.Awful"
Pros: "Short but comfortable flight. Staff were friendly and attentive"
Cons: "Delay wasn’t announced until almost close to scheduled departure time"

Pros: "In general, comfortable seats, decent service and okay food, ."
Pros: "Only good thing about this flight is that it's not stop flight to Delhi."
Cons: "Planes on San Francisco to Delhi route are really old and smaller than most of the international flights. The interior of ppane has really old look and feel. Most of entertainment screens don't work as expected. Seat cushions are really old and worn which makes 16 hours for flight even more uncomfortable. Food is ok quality as well."

Pros: "Overall it was good. Cabin crew, punctuality."
Cons: "You did not offer the 50% discount meant for senior citizens provided by Airindia. Pls do the needful to refund that amount to me."

Headphone two pin adapter not standard with Bose or other noise cancelling headphones I brought with self. Food was average. A lot more expected from the 16 hr non stop flight. Very disappointed. I have pictures to show broken hand-rest and headphones."
Pros: "The entertainment systems were not working on my seat and many other seats. The tray tables were all broken. The aircraft is very old and makes the flight experience very poor."

Pros: "Timing - good landing time at SFO"

Pros: "Food is good.. and overall travel experience is also nice"
Cons: "The transit in Delhi require change of baggage. It will be better if they transfer completely throughout the travel"

Pros: "The food was nice"
Cons: "The entertainment system did not work The crew was very unprofessional The plane was quite old and things were falling out"
Cons: "There was only one counter for the entire passengers to check in. After standing in the que for 2hrs with arrogant Air India staff treatment, i was forced to think why the h**l I booked in Air India. The flight got delayed for 6hrs and I was asked to come at 09:30pm to the airport by Air India staff. All I saw after entry was a big panic crowd with anger standing at the one Air India counter. The staff were absolutely not bothered of whos standing and for how many hours. They have no clue of how to manage a crisis...B*** S***."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Flew the AIR INDIA direct flight from SFO to Delhi with return. None of on-board services were in working condition. The in-flight entertainment system did not work at all - neither the touch screen mode, nor the remote controller mode. In fact, multiple buttons had come out of the remote controller - even the button to call flight attendant had come out. The headset was broken. I thought atleast food will be better than other flights, but it was sub-standards. Stiil, if you like to take advantage of the flight being non-stop, plan your journey with a book or two, an ipad and a headset, these were my saviour."
Cons: "aircraft pretty old, most seats have some problem or the other. crew wasn't the most friendly. juice not served only once. (only had 2 options)"
