Flight attendants were excellent.
Cons: "Not make me check my carry on when there was adequate room in plane"
Pros: "Great flight crew, comfortable, clean plane, early arrival."
Cons: "Better free entertainment options."
Cons: "Delta is always a step above the rest."
Cons: "Assigning seats at check in? Why was that a thing? Also why did we have to wait for almost an hour once we landed to be given a gate for us to unload? So stupid the whole thing."
Cons: "They ran out of food by the time they got to the back of the plane."
Cons: "The Delta flight leaving Cleveland was a hour and a half late so we could not make our connection to get home and had to overnight in Minneapolis. This is the fourth time in six flights For Delta. I think the Kayak booking algorithm needs to allow more time between connecting flights."
Pros: "Quick boarding and great with accommodating my request for a window seat."
Cons: "Offer in flight entertainment."
Cons: "We were late getting into ATL."
Pros: "The crew was amazing this round I got good seats"
Cons: "Forgot my earphones so I had to read a book. I never asked nor did I see earphones"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "When all overhead bins were full, they should have allowed those who didn’t need to check their carry on to board the plane before those who needed to check their carry on. Very unorganized at gate."
Pros: "The ceew"
Cons: "Unorganized boarding and 6 hour delay from expected departure time."
Pros: "The crew was very good. So was the food."
Cons: "The flight was 1 hour delayed"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and our luggage is lost"
Pros: "We eventually got there"
Cons: "In Cleveland, the doors remained opened for about 30 minutes after they were supposed to close, and 6-7 people boarded. We then arrived in ATL quite a bit after we were scheduled to land."
Pros: "Delta Comfort Plus for the win! Great seats with plenty of legroom and room for carry ons. Friendly flight attendants"
Pros: "In flight movie in back of head rest. The kids thought I was the bomb when I booked this flight."
Cons: "The bathroom was smaller than my seat!"
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and tried their best the delay."
Cons: "Delayed flight. 2 hours delay. Had to rebook a connecting flight and hence was very tight to board the next flight"
Pros: "Flight was good. Left on time. Crew was attentive."
Cons: "Did not assign seat at check in. Had to go to gate and check in. Staff handled it well, but it was inefficient. Wasted time dealing with it."
Cons: "It was very hot and did not cool down"
Pros: "Two ladies working in the aisles were very pleasant and nice"
Cons: "Takeoff accelerated too much... nicer to have a longer launch process"
Pros: "Efficient on board crew"
Cons: "Ground crew caused delay for unknown reason"
Pros: "The crew is always wonderful. The complimentary beverage and snack really makes the flight better, even in the tiny seats. The flights with tv screens and charging ports are great, although they only seem to be on my shorter of the two connecting flights."
Cons: "Crew allows the first zones to place both their carryon and personal items in overhead storage, filling the bins before many travelers board the plane. We are then asked to check our bag, and are forced to put our 1 bag between our legs, whole many people stored two overhead. Flight was delayed a few minutes and time was not made up in air. Delta changed a few of our flights before we were even off the plane, while other passengers were allowed to keep their original flight (originally we all had the same connecting flight). Looks to me like they overbooked and pulled some of us randomly. Also, my checked bag was sent on wrong plane, and sat unattended at next airport for 2 hours."
Pros: "everiding si so good thanks this is my 2nd time lovet"
Cons: "so organais tritment so good everiding lovet"
Pros: "Short trip"
Cons: "Very hot ride"
Pros: "Better seats"
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Despite small aircraft, boarding was fast and easy. On time departure and arrival. And quite clean aircraft despite a very fast turnaround. And Biscoff!!!! Delta's free wifi for messaging is a nice touch, as is free in-flight video. In-flight music would be nice, too. Doesn't hurt to ask :)"
Pros: "On time. Most important"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "We were treated very well and it was a short, sweet flight. Nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable. These short haul flights often have worn out, painful seats."
Cons: "They do a bad job of screening people with bags too large for the overhead bins and then those people have to check one they have already tried to board and it slow things down."
Pros: "Delta was so accommodating"
Pros: "- usb abd 110v charging ports on the seat backs - in-flight entertainment system for all passengers - comfy seats and adequate legroom in basic econ."
Cons: "- zone 1-5 boarding does not make for good logic - should board all window seat passengers first, then all middle seaters, and finally all aisle sear passengers"
Pros: "I liked that Delta gave me quick alternative flights and was able to switch at no charge to another flight using their app. I was traveling with my 12 year son and they were accommodating in seating us together."
Cons: "The hassle and the fact that we had to run to catch the new flight."
Pros: "Very on-time and fast, respectful crew."
Cons: "The airplane was old and with no entertainment."
Pros: "Hey, they let us off the plane."
Cons: "The plane had just come in & problem was detected. Does it really take an hour to get the log book recorded?"
Pros: "Staff were great.. landed smoothly"
Pros: "Delta is a mess to check in. Check in on line, print boarding passes then stand for an hour to get bag checked, in Cleveland an. urn ind almost as long in Austin. Terrible"
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "The plane was dirty and there was a lot of trash around my seat."
Pros: "Good flight. Typical air travel"
Pros: "Hard to like anything with this delay -- missed 3 appointments in Raleigh."
Cons: "If you have to swap out planes, do it at night, not the morning of the flight! And tell the customers in advance, so they can get some sleep instead of hurrying to the airport for an "on time" flight that couldn't be flown because of an equipment problem."
Cons: "Economy seating was cramped and painful. I sat in a window seat and couldn't hardly move freely enough to get my seatbelt on; and I am a petite female!!"
Cons: "the seats are WAY TOO SMALL"
Pros: "Our original flight delayed and then cancelled and the need help kiosk was quick to provide an alternative. Better aircraft and good flight compared with the original flight"
Cons: "The replacement flight has been delayed almost 2:30 hours due to bad weather in NYC."
The flight got to JFK on time even with a 30mins delay and the crew where pleasant and helpful. They gave useful information to ensure people with connecting flights made it through border control/custom in a timely manner.
Virgin cancelled my flight on July 2nd, two hours after I booked it and never let me know. I discovered this when I attempted to check in online. By that time, it was too late to rebook on any airline and I missed an important training event and conference.
Virgin Atlantic should not be allowed to run codeshares without WestJet if neither company can provide check in or boarding passes - I was told I had to recheck my bags on a connecting flight which due to delays of the first one meant I had to abandon my bags at my first leg City to ensure I was able to run to get my flight as I only had 30 mins to make boarding. This means I landed in my destination without my luggage and am likely to never get it back. I will not fly on Virgin Atlantic again.
As far as food in international coach goes, it was pretty good. Haagen Dazs ice cream was a really nice touch. Flight attendants were helpful and nice throughout the flight.
Flight was okay when we got on it eventually after 4 hour delay. Spent another 45 minutes on the plane waiting for a gate. All quite tiring
There was a lot of delay in getting a wheel chair. Single person doing for multiple people at Heathrow airport. Since you know in advance how many need wheel chair assistance, it would have been better if more wheel chairs and persons were available. Had to wait for almost an hour after landing after a 10:30 HR flight. The economy classic leg room was so bad, that it is very difficult for senior citizens to getup from seat, if the front seat passenger is reclining. The cabin crew were very very helpful in providing the special assistance. But for them the flight would have been very difficult.
The crew was accommodating
Liked traveling with Virgin on the past. This time checking was an issue, meals sucked, we were missed when meals were served. Not a great experience. Will travel in two weeks to the UK but will fly with another carrier
Erything was excellent and easy
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The screen"
Cons: "The service on Virgin Australia is quite poor. They are barely around. The seats are also only mediocre"
Pros: "Craig in first cabin flight crew was amazing. :))))"
Pros: "The crew were lovely and the seats were ok."
Cons: "Not a lot to Improve on to Be fair"
Pros: "The crew were all excellent"
Cons: "Dinner choice was poor. Starter was just a few salad leaves."
Cons: "They have to uptade the airplanes"
Pros: "Provides the service you'd expect from an international carrier. Boarded on time, seat actually reclines, meals, baggage, seat assignments are included in the price. Staff treat you well and the price isn't bad."
Cons: "Virgin website is slow and not intuitive. Couldn't get seat assignment until i was at the gate. No explanation why. Boarding announcements delivered via ESP. Half of the passengers were still in the boarding area because no one heard announcements. Arrived 30 min early but had to wait on the tarmac for 45 min for a parking gate. Baggage delivery at JFK took forever."
Pros: "Limited numbers in the top deck, silence, service and deplaning first."
Cons: "Food has to much of an asian slant."
Pros: "Fabulous flight, light on passengers, so excellent service given by the crew. Virgin goes the extra mile on service and little perks. 747-400 planes also very comfortable, compared to the Airbus 320,"
Cons: "Nothing. Trip both ways were outstanding."
Pros: "modern comfortable plane, in flight entertainment was good, service was outstanding."
Cons: "food was meh at best, seats in economy are tight and there is no legroom"
Pros: "We liked everything about our Virgin Atlantic flight. They could not have been more helpful from the time we got our Boarding passes in London until we got off the plane in Washington DC."
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike on this part of our trip with Virgin Atlantic."
Cons: "luggage never made it to Boston? Don't know who's fault it was.Problem was corrected."
Cons: "The plane seemed to be a little bit old, especially entertaining equipment"
Cons: "10 hour delay in Brisbane was terrible"
Pros: "Lovely food and staff. Lots of food."
Cons: "The seat pocket in front of me was broken. I didn't want to make a fuss but one would have thought during checks pre-flight that should have been noticed and rectified. I was flying with my family including my 4 yr old and we had lots of toys to keep her entertained but had no where to put them apart from on our seats and tables when we were allowed to have them down."
Pros: "Food and service was ok"
Cons: "Delayed at the airport. Very little leg room and hot while waiting to yake off. Entertainment was really bad. Bad screen and sound quality was awful."
Cons: "I had to run for almost 2 miles every time I had to change the flight. On the way to India they lost my one bag, and on the way back to US they lost my both begs."
Cons: "It was terribly late. No one had a clue on when flight would depart."
Pros: "Safety. Service."
Cons: "Lavatory was icky and other passengers messy."
Pros: "simple easy boarding. Jumbo 747 is always a nice experience."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional, the food was good and offered frequently due to the long flight time (10.5 hours). The plane was comfortable even though nearly full. Overall, it was a good experience and I would definitely fly with Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "We really enjoyed flying with Virgin and so made sure we booked into a Virgin flight for this trip and not delta. The food was good, entertainment good when it worked."
Cons: "We got told that our flight number had changed from VS103 to VS4049 but still a Virgin flight. Only when we checked in we found out we were now flying with Delta and number was now DL285. Was not happy as wanted to fly with Virgin.The seats were ok but the entertainment system went down mid film. Took an hour to get started again. The games didn't work. Staff were a bit grumpy."
Pros: "food was good, and tvs in the seats."
Cons: "wifi didnt work, was the whole reason i took this airline. most international flights are cold it was very hot"
Pros: "Good Virgin experience though food was not brilliant"
Cons: "Seating was very uncomfortable. Hardly any padding in the seats and very little leg room. Far worse than any previous Virgin flight."
Pros: "We paid extra for more legroom and it was totally worth it."
Cons: "The regular seats were so lacking in leg room that I could not cross my legs, reach the floor to get my glasses when I dropped them, or even get my carry-on out. There is no way to get into the "brace for impact position" with arms over your head and head in your lap! This is really unsafe, not to mention really uncomfortable. The flight was long, so comfort would be nice! Our first flight was regular seats and I was pretty miserable and I am a slender woman 5'6". The extra 3" was great, and we had to pay more on the return trip. The FAA should be investigating seat size and safety on planes."
Pros: "This is my new favorite airline. I loved the staff and all the amenities. I was so comfortable and the food choices were great. I felt like I was cared for and my comfort mattered."
Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."
Pros: "The movie selections and comfortable headsets made it possible to watch three movies uninterrupted. The food selections were well prepared. Flight attendants were helpful and efficient."
Cons: "Boarding is always a bit of chaos when our seats are right in the back. People further up insist on boarding early and block the aisles in the process. Multiple levels of passport control and baggage checkout are chaotic, but that's for most all flights coming into USA? VIrgin/Delta handled it well enough. By the time we got through passport control in Boston ur bags were waiting and we had no problems at all."
Pros: "Australian airports are wonderful."
Cons: "More than one hour delated"
Pros: "ear plugs, eye mask, pillow and blanket provided. fruit, water and juice available without asking someone for it. adequate leg room, good movie selection and 2 meals with wine provided."
Pros: "Still a more pleasant experience than BA but others have overtaken. Crew make a difference though."
Cons: "Limo service wasn't great in China - asked for address of hotel - a major international chain and confusion on booking details"
Pros: "great food and service!"
Cons: "It got a little cold in the cabin for a few hours."
Cons: "I couldn't rank the food or entertainment as I didn't try the food since it was for purchase only, and there was no entertainment offered."
Pros: "The whole flight was great quick boarding, lots of leg room, good entertainment, a USB charge port, good lighting, and the crew was very nice and helpful. I enjoyed the flight and would like to fly Virgin Atlantic more. Finally, you are the 3rd best flight, I have ever take, and the 2nd best airline I've been on. Flew Business Class on Swiss Air once to Geneva (#1) and all the flights I have had with Porter Air are comparable to your airline, but the free cookies and beverages at Porter's terminal in Toronto wonderful."
Cons: "A couple things went wrong on this trip, my checked luggage got misplaced for a day, and a nice women in baggage claim told me what was happening and a nice man handled my claim and my bag has now been returned to me. The bigger thing is my flight bas delayed taking off by 3 hours. Let me start that I would rather have a part replaced on the runway then not, safety is paramount. The fact is my flight took off 3 hours late from London (VS11), and got to my destination (BOS) 2.5 hours late. Kudos to the flight crew for getting me to my destination faster by gaining a little time. Plus, since BOSTON was my final destination it was all fine this time. But if I had had to get home to the elder person I take care of or my teenager it would been a problem. Again, I'm annoyed, but I do understand the reasons and they are valid and preferred. I have heard that airlines to keep their flight rating high, wait for planes to leave the gate on time and then do repairs on the tarmac. If this is still a SOP for airlines you should change the way the statistics are collected and figure out a way of not perpetuating this type of disincentive. This is just hypothesis on my part, and my whole trip had little negatives."
Pros: "reservations easy to make (like most other airlines) A water bottle, blanket, headset & sleep kit on each seat. Seats were not so close together in coach that your knees were against your chin if the guy in front of you put his seat back. The planes I was on To/from LAX-BNE felt very spacious because of the interior height. 2 free checked bags."
Cons: "The food was mediocre--doughy stuff for both meals Not very tasty. The entertainment selection was nowhere near as good as on other airlines. Very Australia-heavy music, old films & TV shows available, as well as some new ones. But no live TV channels, not even current news."
Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"
Pros: "Flight was on the emptier side, so my boyfriend and I each got our own entire rows to lay down and sleep the entire flight. Which was great, since I had just spent 6h vomiting from bali belly on the previous flight. Liked that they accommodated my GF meal."
Pros: "The comfort of the flight and entertainment."
Cons: "My bag was not put on the correct flight so I had no bag for 3 days, they were slow in getting my bag to Bali from Sydney. It was really unacceptable. The food was horrible, I only ate it because I was starving. Flight was delayed from Sydney to Bali, which caused me to miss my pick up. Not sure if I'll fly with them again."
Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."
Pros: "Staff were polite"
Cons: "The seating space is horrendous, I am 5 ft 8 and felt like I was sitting with my knees at my chest, horrible horrible seating"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the crew were nice."
Cons: "the seating is horrible. it was the tightest seating I've ever experienced."
Pros: "Due to business I travel allot so I deal with allot of airlines. This is by far the best airlines I have used. Excellent crew and airport staff. I don’t think words can express how satisfied I am with this airlines and airport. The nicest people and great service. Clean and modern aircraft. Going to try flying only with KLM from now on."
Pros: "Food was great, movie selection too. Everything was great except for I couldn’t really get comfortable to sleep"
Cons: "Not sure how to make the seats more comfortable. I have some back issues though. However, some of my travel companions slept right through the flight."
Pros: "Terrific hot breakfast in bus. class"
Cons: "Window did not darken like the others."
Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."
Pros: "A flight was delayed due to weather conditions and we had to sit in the plane for almost an hour, BUT information sharing from the Capitan was sufficient and on-time. Very good job from pilots. Leg room in economy - I was positively surprised, very decent leg room! Thank you for providing it."
Cons: "I flew economy and all was good and appropriate to the level."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Staff: from check in to landing, they could at least smile. Baggage claim was a nightmare, 6 Schengen flights in the same belt."
Cons: "Seats in economy section are very close together . There is not enough room for knees...especially for such a long trip."
Pros: "The crew was informative"
Cons: "Inflight sandwiches"
Pros: "Food was great, enjoyed watching videos, staff very profession and friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and prolonged My Baggage was not transferred and was not available when I arrived in Dulles."
Pros: "Service and crew amazing friendly and went out of the way to Make u feel special even the pilots gave updates thru out the flight"
Cons: "Not being to help on the ground in Copenhagen with delta issues"
Cons: "Crew members in Amsterdam were very rude and disrespectful"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and flight was calm"
Cons: "The coffe and breakfast."
Pros: "Onboard crew were nice and polite. Flight was on time (a rarity)."
Cons: "The boarding crew was rude and unpleasant, the plane was boiling hot."
Pros: "KLM never disappoints, the cabin crew was extremely kind and helpful!. The food was great, nice leg room in regular economy class, thousands of movies and tv shows...it was great!"
Cons: "Well there was a LOT of turbulence but no one can control the weather and shout out to the pilot for giving us such a smooth landing a rough weather!"
Pros: "The crew is really welcoming"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow and a bit too hard"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Passenger who needed wheelchair assistance it took KLM 50 minutes to get him off plane which delayed our boarding. KLM not prepared to handle passengers with needs"
Cons: "Late departure. Rush to connect."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic."
Cons: "This was the most narrow airplane seat I’ve ever experienced. So uncomfortable."
Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding needs improvement"
Pros: "Crew was in a festive mood, the meal was unexpectedly delicious"
Cons: "Seats ok, but could be more comfy"
Pros: "Flight duration"
Cons: "Very stingy with the drinks Cramped seats"
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"
Cons: "Check in at Berlin was extremly slow. Staff was very unprofessional and not very friendly."
Pros: "Overall booking and airport was ok. Food was also actually quite good."
Cons: "A comfort of the seats... well its economy class in the end. Entertainment was just dreadful - small screen with visible pixels - I was unable to watch any movie."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful crew."
Pros: "Face recognition was amazing"
Cons: "Too hot on plane"
Pros: "The seat was spacious and the concept of the evening meal being the lighter option was innovative and well thought out"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic and congested with not much information or order."
Pros: "The crew was fantastic! Our needs were constantly being met and just about the time you thought you might want a snack or a meal, the attendants were already heading down the aisle. Because of an allergic reaction, I asked for ice a number of times and the attendants were more than happy to meet my needs."
Cons: "The seats were very close together. The trip from New York to Amsterdam seemed a lot more comfortable than the return flight. The food from NYC JFK was better than the food from Amsterdam. The movie selection on both flights was a little disappointing."
Pros: "Left ontime and service was excellent."
Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
Cons: "Boarding was a free for all. The travelers did not pay attention to the priorities."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Warm plane with happy staff."
Cons: "Maybe a second sandwich option for food, not everyone likes cheese."
Cons: "At some point the luggage was lost. here."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze and the staff were lovely. Online check was very simple and easy to navigate."
Cons: "The amount of extras you have to click no to while checking in online."
Pros: "Nice seats, comfortable."
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."
Pros: "From downloading the KLM app to the final touchdown of my final flight, everything was an ease, checking in, the option to change my seat, the service received was great."
Cons: "The ability to state a seat or meal preference within the app would be good but otherwise all was good."
Pros: "The sandwiches were simple yet just the right touch, on all four flights."
Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"
Cons: "The leg room on the long flight was less than I would have wished and it was particularly bad when the person in front put their seat back. this was a day time flight and it would have been good to have a bit more room to use a laptop."
Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"
Pros: "The flight was delayed by 40 minutes initially then a further 20 making it an hour late. Sitting at the gate there was then suddenly a last call to board the flight and a mad rush for everyone to get on. I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Loved this 747! Crew was professional and food was very good."
Cons: "We had a long wait (25 minutes) at the gate because we were early."
Pros: "I fly delta this was run by KLM they weight all bags delta does not they don't take TSA preach Check. Delta does It was a free for all with check in and getting into plane"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food."
Pros: "Flight crew on flight from Amsterdam to Cape Town were probably the most friendly and enthusiastic I've experienced and no, they were not all young. The plane was spotless throughout the flight. They were always coming around with water and juice and they genuinely seemed to care about all the passengers. The Flight back crew were just the opposite. More like the old lazy farts you get on the American carriers or BA or QF long haul. Whoo have been there for the long haul and should have stopped ages ago."
Cons: "The Entertainment images on the screens promoted Beauty and the Beast, Batman Lego movie but neither were on the system! Food quality was rubbish"
I booked my flight through Kayak. I was not able to make the flight. I sent my passport in for renewal 7 weeks ago. I still have not received it. I couldn't rebook because I didn't know when or if I would even receive it. That would of cost me a extra $500. So I asked for a refund or voucher to book at a later date. I only was able to recover $90 of the $1000 I spent on my flight. How would you feel?
Rude crew, there was no choices in food. For breakfast or lunch it was only one choice. I asked gor a vegetarian option for breakfast since i dont eat pork but they said no other options. Take it or leave it , when i complained how come they don’t have vegetarian options they said i should book it 72 hours before hand. I couldn’t believe that they didn’t seem to care or accommodate me for breakfast. Didn’t try to find an alternative and walked away leaving me hungry with no breakfast.
I like that I made it to my destination after 5 hours 23 of those hours sitting on the plane
They have made the seats even narrower and tighter fore. Like paying someone a lot of money to torture you. Tall people—don’t mean NBA— can’t scoot down so there’s no seat to support neck. We got sore necks and no sleep. The aisles so narrow now flight attendants are hitting people’s shoulders all the time, spilled hot coffee on me. They probably have bruises. Airlines guilty of human rights violations.
The flight was on time. The flight was rough/ choppy so there was no beverage service. The could of offered bottled water and the cookie or pretzels. Not customer oriented. Cleveland -Anerican Airlines needs to reorganize/ layout their incoming boarding pass and ticketing/bag tag area with a separate customer service area for flight cancelations. It is a cluster! Someone should video tape and send to the funniest video program.
The plane was very late arriving at the gate which made me miss my connecting flight which made me miss my shuttle. I’m very upset and will be calling American Airlines
Cons: "My eyes were watering and my nose was itchy for the entire flight and I had to hold back sneezes and I think there was something in the air on the plane that was causing this to happen. I was double-masking and I do not have allergies. I wonder if it had to do with the chemicals used to disinfect the plane between flights? I was not very comfortable, to say the least. Everything else was great, though, but I don’t think I will be flying again anytime soon."
Pros: "A crew member saw me struggling to walk and offered a wheelchair, explained to me that I would be met with one throughout my trip. Her name was Donna!! Problem occurred when we got to Dallas."
Cons: "Instead of circling in the sky, they could have had the pilot take the alternate route he eventually took anyway, in the first place. My family and I still don’t know if we’re going to get a flight to El Paso/ stand by. So much 4 seeing my armyson before he deploys, recipient time waisted over bad decisions on to of everything else, entitled woman on the plane insults me on the lane for no reason. The crew was amazing though."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and plane was clean."
Cons: "I was exhausted and wanted to sleep on my late night flight but my seat did not recline (broken)"
Cons: "The attendants attitude."
Cons: "6 hour delay"
Pros: "Great airplane. Enjoy the 2 seat rows."
Pros: "Boarding very well done."
Cons: "One of the crew was unhappy."
Pros: "The friendly informative team when we learned our plane broke. I switched to Charlotte connection earlier as a Miami one made no sense as Miami is south of Atlanta final destination. We had a different outcome than expected yet staff cared for us."
Cons: "Plane better maintained as before take off a hydraulic part broke and we were grounded . We arrived home hours later than planned because of this."
Pros: "My bag was lost!!!"
Cons: "To have my bag delivered"
Cons: "Departing on time...30 minutes late."
Cons: "Again, I paid for extra legroom when I purchased seats for a British airways flight and at check in I was rerouted to an American Airlines flight. The seats were the same in the entire aircraft except for first class. I want a refund!"
Pros: "Very professional and timely. My last six flights with American have been without a hitch and right on time. If I were a business traveler, which I am not, American Airlines would be my go to carrier. Quite satisfied with this airline and have been for a long time. Thanks!"
Pros: "We were early but couldn't get to the gate!"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "I just don’t understand how a flight can be delayed three hours from weather the day before. And, of course, we arrived and there was no gate for us. They had three hours to have a gate ready for us. AA fail!"
Pros: "Check in"
Cons: "Missed connection"
Cons: "They charge for coffee."
Cons: "Supposed to leave saturday, but didnt cause the lady at airlines said i need a visa when i did not need a visa.now its tuesday in austrailia and im stuck in airport because quantos doest know where my bags are. This trip is turning or turned into a total disaster!"
Pros: "Standard AA domestic flight. Once we were boarded and underway, things were fine. Crew was friendly, the aircraft was cleaned on the turn from the prior flight, and we didn't sit on the tarmac too long when arriving at DFW. Normal operations for AA domestic."
Cons: "Unfortunately, normal operations for AA domestic means boarding 20-30 minutes late, which delayed the arrival a bit. In general, AA could provide more accurate updates and boarding information for their flights. For example, if the inbound aircraft arrives at the time my flight should be boarding, I want to see an updated departure time, rather than maintaining the "on time" status right up until five minutes before the new boarding time. Generally it takes 25-30 minutes to turn the plane for the next outbound flight."
Cons: "Now pay significant more for carry on bags for another mediocre airline where it is not significantly cheaper."
Pros: "Like my AA rides > 90% of the time. The usual prob is sketchy gogo service."
Cons: "Nogo gogo"
Cons: "Plane was dirty and crew inattentive."
Pros: "Short flight, nothing much to say."
Pros: "The crew on both flights to Cancun were very nice!! thanks"
Pros: "Speedy boarding, friendly crew."
Cons: "Seats are definitely cramped."
Cons: "plane does not have in seat monitors, using tablets for entertainment. Power plugs worked on and off during the flight old equipment (767) but still better than PHL-AMS 757"
Cons: "Poor choice and food"
Pros: "The gate agent was having a bad night because she did not get a break. I am platinum pro and would not upgrade me because she said I was not on the list but she put 2 people in first who were not even advantage members"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and ontime"
Cons: "Flight was extremely expensive."
Pros: "We were able to be put in an exit row which was great - especially since my husband and I are very tall and it was a cross-country flight."
Cons: "I find it ridiculous that on a cross-country flight they can't even offer pretzels or peanuts. There was NOTHING!!!! I have been on short hops on other airlines and you get something."
Cons: "The leg room for seats were horrible especially anyone passed 5 ft 7in."
Pros: "The checkin kiosk, the crew, the food, the seat, the pilot, the cleanliness."
Cons: "The announcement systems was not good at the boarding groom. I couldn't hear sitting at the other end of the boarding room. Luckily other passengers were helpful."
Pros: "The Ticket agent was very helpful and friendly. The air crew and Flight Attendants were very nice and helpful. The wheel chair attendant who initially took me to my gate in Las Vegas was very friendly, and helpful, and she did everything she could possibly have done, short of leaving another passenger to come take care of me, which wouldn't have been right. I was there when she called her supervisor and advised him/her of my location and of my needs and she received confirmation. Was not her fault."
Cons: "I checked in with American and a wheel chair attendant assisted me to my gate. My wheel chair needed charged and I was two hours early, so the attendant sat me at the charging station because there were no outlets in the gate area. She contacted her supervisor to advise of my location and that I would need assistance. Nobody came for me. I gathered my things the best I could and struggled to get to the gate to get attitude from the gate agent, telling me the wheel chair attendant was there looking for me. What ever happen to using a paging system when you know the passenger who is disabled checked in two hours earlier? Had someone paged, maybe I could have flagged their attention, or maybe they could have called the company in charge of handling their wheel chair attendance and would have known where I could be located. Either way, the attitude is uncalled for, especially when I apologized and stated that the wheel chair attendant was expected to help me."
Cons: "I selected an aisle seat because I have very bad anxiety and when I got there to print off my ticket I was assigned a middle seat. It was very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Good flight! Smooth landing!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled without notification."
Pros: "Paid for extra leg room...otherwise everything went very smoothly.."
Cons: "The original flight was cancelled so we were stuck at the airport for nine hours. Then the replacement fight was a super old out of date place."
Pros: "All went very smoothly"
Pros: "nothing. horrible flight."
Cons: "Aweful experience. I waited for hours in the airport because there was no plane available. thank you for wasting my time. No food served on my first class flight. All airport restaurants closed down so no food available and yet American airlines left me stranded and hungry."
Still in London. Never booking a ticket with British or American Airlines. Awful customer service.
Pros: "Club Europe- excellent attentive crew, excellent food!"
Cons: "Nothing! They were the best!"
Cons: "The plane was old and literally falling apart. Tray tables were disconnecting. Worst part: The flight was delayed for some baggage mixup. Then they did nothing proactively to help passengers with tight connections that were only tight bc the flight was so late."
Cons: "LHR made us wait 30+ min upon arrival for a gate."
Pros: "Great comfortable aircraft they use and the best is that it leaves from FLL"
Pros: "Food and entertainment were good"
Cons: "Flight was terribly cold. Better AC management required"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Leg room!"
Cons: "For a first class flight, I think they gotta change everything. Concorde lounge in london outdated, bad food, no snacks.. on board monitor was so low in resolution that watching was a pain and movies with subtitles impossible to watch. Compared to LH Air France or any Asien Avery bad"
Pros: "Can’t complain having a whole row for myself in such a long flight and amazing crew"
Pros: "Planes are well maintained"
Cons: "Rigid attitude of the staff that goes the extra mile to find ways to irritate and upset clients"
Pros: "The ice cream bar served as a snack."
Cons: "The flight left late. It was one of the most turbulent flights I’ve ever taken-multiple people threw up, including my son 5 times. The in flight entertainment didn’t work and service wasn’t great."
Pros: "BA did everything right. Weather caused hours of delays on tens of flights. Airport was not prepared to manage the volume"
Cons: "Over 2.5 hours delay"
Pros: "Staff is genuinely pleasant. Perhaps since I was traveling with a four-year-old."
Cons: "At least give us coffee, having to pay for absolutely everything isn’t particularly nice after a long flight from NY. Perhaps offer complimentary coffee to travelers who connected from elsewhere, at least."
Pros: "Great entertainment choices"
Cons: "Slow crew. Same good choices as flight just before"
Pros: "Nothing - even in so called Club Europe."
Cons: "Cheapness and shabbiness in every respect. A sad downward spiral for a once impressive airline."
Pros: "Crew and staff were very nice."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked even though we booked the flight 2 months ahead of time"
Pros: "Snagged another aisle seat for this relatively short hop to Stockholm folllowing the trans-Atlantic leg from Boston."
Cons: "Some kind of free food might have been nice."
Pros: "Spacious. Great movies. Funny safety instructions."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "There was an abusive passenger sitting behind me that kicked my chair the entire flight. They were angry that they didn't have more space and that I wanted to have my seat back. I offered to put it up during meal times to make sure they had enough space but that wasn't good enough. The crew knew what was happening and tried to get the other passenger to stop but the passenger persisted. The crew refused to upgrade me even though I had paid for an aisle seat and there were no other aisle seats available for me to move to. I find this service unacceptable. I probably won't be willing to fly BA again as they obviously care more about money than ensuring their customers are comfortable."
Pros: "The crew members were cheerful and competent. No complaints."
Cons: "Security was slow, slow, slow and confusing. Arrived at gate after boarding had started. Did not like having to pay for a mediocre cup of coffee. Seats were not very comfortable and very cramped - and no, we are not overweight."
Cons: "Three hours late."
Pros: "Effective communication from the pilot"
Cons: "Still mind blown that they lost our suitcase."
Cons: "I don’t want to pay for coffe and a muffin"
Pros: "First international flight. In flight entertainment was fantastic, plenty of new movie titles to view along with music, all complimentary. Staff was hospitable and frequently came by to reduce lighting and offer food and refreshments. I’m about 6’3” so my only complaint was no room in the middle seat but otherwise it was ok. I made it work."
Cons: "Not enough room between the rows for me to adequately stretch my legs out."
Pros: "Comfortable flight with personal entertainment screen. Also had an extra seat next to me to spread out!"
Pros: "Its hard to consider a flight where you got bumped up from premium economy to business as anything other than a 10!"
Cons: "The dining choices in the terminal British Airways uses are dismal. I am not sure British Airways has any input to this but the line in arrivals for US passport holders was approximately 2.73 miles long while the line for UK/EU passports was perhaps 40 feet long - not a very welcoming situation. Perhaps a little pressure applied by the major airline could improve this situation."
Cons: "Seat is not so confortable crew member is not enough always forget to skip my raw and there is no more food I want ! Airplane is too big all full too many people and the gate is too far to walk to"
Pros: "Quiet, adequate legroom, comfortable climate and seat."
Cons: "Food and drinks only for purchase. Would have been nice to at least have been offered a glass of water."
Pros: "Efficiente flight"
Cons: "No movies"
Pros: "More leg room."
Cons: "Strange hot sandwiches! Only small amounts of liquid at one time."
Pros: "I made it to Paris and I guess that's what's important"
Cons: "You could offer small bottles of water as a courtesy Flight Attendants are definitely rude. Not to me, but I watched them interact with other passengers and they are just baseline.. rude."
Cons: "It has been a week and British airways still hasn't delivered my suitcase."
Cons: "Food and entertainment were not a part of this flight. Rating of 1 star means I could not evaluate it."
Pros: "The flight I booked through Kayak was cancelled and I was not told until I called three weeks later to check on my seat assignment."
Pros: "Hostess friendly and attentive"
Pros: "Very prompt and good communication from pilot"
Pros: "Once you get to the plane the service is incredible. The planes are comfortable and the food is worth paying for."
Pros: "Boarded easily plenty of room for bags"
Cons: "All snacks and drinks cost money! Paid for extra legroom row but my knees still touched seat in front of me. Exceptionally poor aircraft configuration - business class had center seats blocked. Remove those rows and make business class 2x2 and I will consider buying it."
Pros: "Good service! Nice seats !! Good flight over all!!!"
Pros: "flight departure and arrival were early. check in was easy even though I arrived at the airport late due to weather."

Pros: "the flight was very good for a domestic flight"
Cons: "after almost missing our previous flight do to ticketing errors, we were then delayed three hours in Dallas this trip truly tested my patients."
