Airline reviews

Cons: "Flight crew not too interactive"

Pros: "The seating on this plane was super spacious and comfortable- leg and seats. Also the seatbelt gave real room. The plane was cleaned; crew friendly, food delicious- featuring semi- famous chefs and well ventilated."
Cons: "Flights should enter from back to front that way you're not waking over people to get your seat.-"

Pros: "Excellent service, excellent seats and comfort . Good food"

Cons: "The dinner meal was not what I requested. A roll with breakfast would have helped. The shrimp was good what was under them was not so good. We had to wait tell last minute to sit together."

Pros: "Great service"

Cons: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "This was a very long flight, but the crew was fantastic and attentive. The meals were good and they did everything they could to make us comfortable. The flight was on time and convenient."

Pros: "We were numb from a long flight over the ocean. Pleasant flight with helpful crew, and it helped that some of them knew English."

Cons: "Leg room"

Pros: "I have gotten used to long flights on various American airlines where it seems the staff do the minimal amount. Service is so incredibly better on Japan Airlines. Staff respond when you ask for assistance. They smile and work with the passengers. They were actively present almost all the time which was amazing. There is just no, "no," on Japanese Airlines. I loved the media options."
Cons: "It has been a while but the food was not as good as I remembered from way back when, or maybe that was Korean Air? It was, however, hot when it should be hot and cold when it should be cold."

Pros: "The flight attendants were so nice and gave a gift to my wife and I when they found out we were traveling for our anniversary! Everyone was so respectful and the food service was awesome. We even flew economy and had a great time!"

Pros: "Always on time"
Cons: "No clue when it's boarding time and no announcement"

Pros: "Had Hindu vegetarian meals, which were good for airplane food and much better than the "standard" fare for the rest of the plane. The flight attendants were very nice and helpful."
Cons: "Space under the seat in front of me was very cramped - a large box for electronics got in the way and made it difficult to get into a comfortable position, which is tough for an 11-hour flight.. The plane was completely full, and my husband and I had to sit in separate rows - I was never able to switch the seats, even though I called several times and tried at the airport as well. Entertainment selection not as good as the American flight out. The JAL website (English version at least) is not very easy to use."

Pros: "JAL has customer service that no other airline comes close to."
Cons: "Nothing, JAL is perfect. I mean it"

Pros: "The Japanese culuture all in all is amazing, the Jap Airlines was no exception. The flight attendants were so nice and beautiful as well."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I didn't like. I wish USA could be more like them in a business aspect."

Pros: "The flights were generally ok. Flying coach.."
Cons: "My round trip had a total of 5 legs.. I had to get my luggage at every stop. I only had one destination so I was not expecting to get my luggage at every stop."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and solicitous and helpful. This is my third trip with JAL and I. Happy about it."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and plenty of leg room. Food is much better than US airlines and so as the service! Will fly JAL from now on."

Pros: "I liked everything about the flight service and attendants. The attendants were always respectful and smiling...."

Pros: "Everything worked as planned."

Pros: "Flight was on time. Staff was very friendly and courteous."
Cons: "The seats were horrific. We flew economy because anything of an upgrade is ridiculously expensive. The seats were so tiny with NO leg room at all. I couldn't even fit my purse under the seat in front of me. I have had more space on Southwest flights. My husband, who is 6'1" could barely get his knees in front of him. This is insane for a 10 hr flight...worse on the way to Japan for a 13 hr flight. Also, not a whole lot of drink service. i was dying for water but it is very difficult to get out of the middle seat to find it. Would NOT book again on this airline."

Pros: "The service was excellent and the food was awesome as always!"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The small touches - the hot soup in the middle of the flight was nice and comforting, the crew were exemplary in their hospitality, the seat was easily the most comfortable Economy Class seat I've sat on."

Pros: "Service was wonderful! Domo arigato gozaimasu. Aloha, Cary"

Pros: "very friendly and very helpful from checkin in to departing"
Cons: "some flt attendants didnt speak english or they didnt understand what i was saying. (but it was fine, i was flying on a Japanese airline and didnt expect them to speak english."

Pros: "Japan airline and ANA airline are the best quality. Service,foods everything is good wonderful!!"

Pros: "The good: The food was tasty given we were on an airplane. Better entertainment selection than my AA flight to Japan. I prefer the 3-3-3 seat layout to the 2-5-2 because even though I had a middle seat there was only one person to get past in either direction."
Cons: "The bad: The plane was warm. I understand some people get cold, but since blankets are provided I would much prefer a colder plan than a warmer one. The warmth made it hard to sleep, which is a big problem on an overnight flight. JAL does not provide individual air vents to passengers seated where I was. I understand the reason for this, but I wish there was some way to get more comfortable. The seats were standard airline economy seats, roomy enough and with enough legroom for my sub-6-foot frame, but not the most comfortable."

Pros: "Good food, real silverware, blanket and pillow provided to economy class, crew offering water and tea through the cabin constantly but unobtrusively."
Cons: "Long, long flight, not much leg room."

Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "Good"

Pros: "I liked the snack bag given at the beginning of flight. Long flights tend to dehydrate, I would like to see more bottled water available."

Cons: "Business class cabin very mediocre for a state of the art latestBoeing plane"

Cons: "Awesome"

Pros: "the food and the business seat is very good."

Pros: "The crew was amazing. The seats were good. I was pleasantly surprised to have a full meal on a two hour flight."
Cons: "Would have loved more current US tv shows to choose from."

Pros: "Lovely crew."

Cons: "Flight attendants rude to travel companion . Non Korean but speaks Korean. When addressing two flight attendants on Korean, they insisted on responding in English, rather than continuing in Korean. Travel companion not happy."

Pros: "Crew was great food was great flight was safe"
Cons: "More room"

Pros: "All crew was super polite, friendly and professional, the food was amazing, and seat was comfy."
Cons: "The entertainment was poor, bad movies selection, small selection of movies, old movies."

Cons: "no complaints. very appreciated our upgrade, since we went to Prague for mother-in-law's funeral, we were absolutely exhausted.This up grade made an excellence different to us. Thanks very much."

Cons: "The seats on the plane had ample leg room, even in economy. The service was excellent. The staff was very polite and efficient. All of this made for a pleasant experience even for the long trip. Thank you Korean Airlines. I would recommend you to all traveling overseas."

Pros: "Services"
Cons: "No, all good"

Pros: "Great leg room even for tall person. Food is good and there's enough choices."

Pros: "Legroom was generous, crew were attentive and polite, although alcohol availability was stingy."
Cons: "Food quality was poor bordering on tasteless, more importantly service of lukewarm egg meals is guaranteed to earn an "Air Typhoid" award, and is inexcusable."

Pros: "Flight staff/crew were the best. And them planes top notch condition and amenities."
Cons: "Anytime I looked to get help from there non-fight staff (customer service, reservation personnel,etc.) I found them rude, short and unhelpful."

Cons: "transit was bad. Almost late for my flight"

Pros: "Economy seating leg room is better than US domestic airlines."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "Ended up in the middle seat even though i booked the flight 7 months ago"
Cons: "bad seating. the Korean air website would not let me pick my own seat in advance"

Cons: "No any fruit available snack Lay over is too long!"

Pros: "Clean and nice crew"
Cons: "Food choices and not as comfortable as I had hoped"

Cons: "Old aircraft, tiny seats"

Pros: "Good is in Vietnam finish"

Pros: "They have bibimbap which is always a great meal option on a plane. The plane felt clean and new. Flight attendants were very nice and made several rounds of water service. Duty free catalog was immense, esp for Korean skincare. Great chance to shop."
Cons: "If you're on an extra long flight, you might feel like there aren't enough movie options in the entertainment system, but my flight was only 8 hours so I was satisfied."

Cons: "High chance of getting delay, this is mostly because of the nature of Korean air."

Pros: "Always slippers and good seats. Lunch was good. Entertainment was just ok but good classical music selection."
Cons: "The food used to be something I looked forward to, but this time the beef and rice for dinner (because chicken was already gone) was so salty and awful I had to ask to change for fish, which was flavorless. 30 minute delay on unloading luggage made the end of a long flight rough."

Pros: "I liked the seats and the comfort."
Cons: "The dinner didn't taste that good. The portion was small and I was hoping they would have Kalbi."

Pros: "Flight had to be cancelled because kayak/Korean air allowed us to purchase these tickets aware with the expiration date of Lauren Butz’s passport this would be an issue. Disgusting business practice."
Cons: "See above. Kayak or Korean air should refund us the cost and some for the stress incurred on our honeymoon, the extra night stay in San Francisco and all the challenges incurred with little to no help from Korean Air on finding an APPROPRIATE resolution (they’re best offer was for us to buy two tickets for the same flight pattern 1 day later for an additional $1,500. THey wanted us to pay them more to get us there? After their shady business practices of willingly stealing money for our initial flight purchase for our honeymoon? Atrocious.)"

Pros: "flight delay for more than an houe"

Pros: "Great Staff"
Cons: "Being too old to listen to crying baby's in the economy (Cattle Car) section of the airplane."

Pros: "Disclaimer: we flew business class. Regardless, our check-in was seamless, Incheon is a beautiful and easy airport, all the flight crew were responsive and pleasant. We flew China Eastern and dealt with Shanghai airport on our flight out and I would avoid doing that again at great cost!"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Schedule."
Cons: "Difficulty making connections at Inchon airport due to gate locations and lack of people moving capability."

Pros: "The crew are very good."
Cons: "Entertainment musically restricted."

Pros: "Considerate Staff"
Cons: "Business would be better; customs in Seoul are very slow."

Pros: "Boarding orderly"
Cons: "Cold food"

Cons: "It was very hot journey, as the air conditioner seemed not working properly. Hope this should be improved in future flight."

Pros: "I enjoyed the service and the touch screen TV."
Cons: "I didn't enjoy how cramped the seats are."

Pros: "I like all the email reminders and alerts"

Cons: "Since long flights with reduced body movement tend to create constipation, would be good to increase vegetables, reduce other stuff."

Pros: "Great leg room and wonderful flight staff. Coffee was excellent."
Cons: "Movie selection too limited and the same movies were offered on the return flight. The smell of sesame oil was a bit overpowering on the flight due to food choices offered. Additionally, an American/European style breakfast option would have been nice. We were offered two meals on our 14 hour overnight flight and both consisted of what we would consider to be dinner or lunch options."

Pros: "Aircraft is well kept and clean. Crew members are attentive and alert.check in process was fast and efficient."
Cons: "Charging of excess baggage on second piece of luggage checkedin. Amount is too steep. Selection of movies could be expanded esp the korean selection since its korean air? Current selection of korean movies was only 5!"

Pros: "I've flown all over the world and it literally was the best flight I've ever had."

Pros: "The international flight authorized two luggage check in, you only authorized 1 check in, and didn't let me know before the departure at airport with two luggage, had to paid for additional luggage $72.00. AA flight two luggage 50lb each luggage, just let you know from now on I will never use Korean Air, with skypass visa card. I though will have better service, but very dispointed. Chin H. Boyd"

Pros: "The food, available movies, and crew were all very good. The crew did a wonderful job."
Cons: "The flight was late for take off and I was disappointed that there was only one Japanese movie available for the flight."

Pros: "The food, available movies, and crew were all very good. The crew did a wonderful job."
Cons: "The flight was late for take off and I was disappointed that there was only one Japanese movie available for the flight."

Cons: "Could have had more options in terms of movies on the flight, such as more South Asian and more Western movie options. They also had a limited drink selection, and the wine was not that great."

Pros: "This was my first time on Korean Air. The flight attendants were so kind and attentive to everyone. I was very impressed. I felt the seats had more leg room and leaned back further than airlines I've flown on in the past."

Pros: "The cabin crew was very attentive throughout the long flight, offering water and orange juice often. Good selection of movies was available."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, everything was very good."

Cons: "Food"

Cons: "Again very impressed with Qatar Airways service on the board"

Cons: "Catering load was poorly estimated. They'd run out of my first choice of brunch despite being in the first row (apparently pancakes are "really popular with the kids" but they don't load extra to account for this). Also ran out of my main choice."

Pros: "Excellent food, service and comfortable seats."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The entertainment was reasonable, I enjoyed the festive choices."
Cons: "Screaming babies, obese people sat next to me, water rationing, not a pleasant experience. Arrived sleep deprived and dehydrated. I have much better experiencs on a visit to Australia - this was my third time this year!"

Pros: "Museum of Islamic Art,"
Cons: "No"

Pros: "The friendly and helpful service."
Cons: "There was a long line by my seat to use the restrooms."

Cons: "I get the safety thing with the window blinds but wish if it was 40 degrees outside they would let you close them until the plane takes off"

Cons: "It was too cold in the plane."

Cons: "Had an 11hr delay overall, 3.5hrs sitting on the tarmac only to be told to disembark for dinner at the airport. Then told that we won't be getting on until 7am the next day, but only really started boarding at 8:30am. By the time we were told about the reschedule to the next morning, it was too late to get a hotel room (too far away) and was told that I could use a 'Quiet Lounge' at the airport (which wasn't quiet). While waiting to board at 7am the next day, ground staff told us that they had to change the plane so there would be a further delay. On boarding, we discovered that it was the SAME PLANE."

Pros: "Service is courteous, both on the ground and air. Food & entertainment was top-notch as well. One of the economy rest-rooms were out of order and I was allowed to utilize the business class restroom by the flight attendant. Head bursar was very apologetic and sympathetic about the whole issue. Enjoyed my flight, again on Qatar!"

Pros: "process quick and efficient"
Cons: "average seats"

Pros: "Best host staff"

Pros: "Everything"

Cons: "Bad app don’t trust"

Pros: "Helpful crew"
Cons: "Food quality and quantity Cramped seating"

Cons: "The employees were not motivated to work. Food was scarce and I was left starving the whole flight. On a 16 hour flight, there should be more food and beverage service other than the 2 times the attendants served us. How can we stay hydrated if we aren't being given any liquids?"

Pros: "I really enjoyed the flight, which was almost 15 hours long. I give an overall 4 star review for this flight. The boarding process was pretty organized (without including the ignorant passengers who can't read their zone numbers, haha) because they called us up group by group, in a speedy process. Even inside, the cabin crew welcomed us aboard and showed us where our seats are. This leads me to my 5-star rating of the service. Very warm, friendly, and generally helpful cabin crew Qatar Airways has. They fulfilled all my needs even if they had to go out of their way. As for entertainment, I was very surprised at how many great movies they have! Especially the new ones! I would not be bored again with this selection. Food was okay to be honest. It was a hot meal that satisfied my hunger and tasted good, but maybe it's just me and airplane food. Doesn't taste right for me. And to be honest, I was cramped. Not even me but many other passengers felt like the seats were too small. Overall, Good experience!"

Pros: "service and staff was polite & friendly"

Pros: "The aircraft from US to Qatar was upgraded and looked new. I love the new on demand video streaming, the touch controls are precise and better than previous version"
Cons: "I wish the airline was a bit more organized with boarding. I saw people with other zones boarding even when they were not called. The air hostess was friendly but I kinda got a feeling that she is doing me a huge favor when I asked for something more."

Pros: "Once staff were aware that my child was sick one staff member in particular regularly checked on the well being of my child."
Cons: "Crew only helpful when pushed to help. My child was sick and the cabin crew tried to give me food. I said that my child had just vomited but there was no offer to help me clear it up they just continued serving food to other passengers. I had to search for someone to help me to clear up and then I felt as though I was an inconvenience. I then had to look for someone to bring food for myself and other child. My other child is 1yr and 11 months and I was told they were only allowed baby food not a child meal. Although there were a few spare seats on the plane I was squashed into a full row with a 3 yr old and one year old on my lap. I appreciate that there may not have been any bassinet seats left but would have been helpful not to be on a full row as a single adult travelling with two small children. No offers for assistance with bags."

Pros: "The staff are outstanding! Friendly, helpful and accommodating."
Cons: "Poor choice of movies. Their 'world' movies should have subtitles"

Pros: "all"

Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."

Pros: "I like the staff and the way they treat the passengers and foods too i like , was really good"
Cons: "I didn't like the comfortable part at the plane , it's not that good plane , the spoon ,& knife are not good , the chairs are not comfortable that much as the other planes of Qatar airways,"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"

Pros: "Soft blankets, seats were okay, crew was wonderful."
Cons: "No wifi even though kayak advertised the flight as having it. Bathrooms were full of trash and quite dirty by the end of the flight."

Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food and arrived 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "delayed flight"

Pros: "The flight was on time, not full and the crew and the entertainment was excellent. Very happy with the experience of flying on Qatar Airways from Johannesburg to Miami."
Cons: "Everything was well, the food was good not great (even for airplane food) and the only other issue is it seemed like trash from our drinks and food services was picked up for quite a while or until we brought it to the flight attendants ourselves."

Pros: "They don't charge you for any seat in economy class"
Cons: "The boarding process feels very hostile, they are not nice and you are threaded as a terrorist (while they smile at you during the process). Since a new policy of TSA according to them, you cannot take your computer with you in the plane. This means that working in your way back is very hard and you will be loosing the day which is very uneficient. But what was even worse, is that they didn't allow me to check my bag in the last connection gettting to the US, instead they made me check it from my original destination which made me loose almost two days of work without giving me a logic response on why I couldn't check my bag from my inbound flight to the US. By the way, this protocol from TSA is terrible. No internet in their flights No chargers plugs in all of their flights (including the ones that take you more than 4 hours) Lunch in their 15 hours flight is mediocre, everyone was starving since they only gave us one mini empanada."

Pros: "The guidence between flights I was the only person off my flight to transfer and they sill had a gal waiting to take me to the next gate"

Pros: "Great personnels!!"
Cons: "Overall nothing but great Service!!"

Pros: "On time, good crew, easy connection."

Pros: "The crew members are amazing."

Pros: "Food came out 1 am melb time ,2 hours after departure ."

Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "movies were good."
Cons: "14hour flight and you cannot give terrible food. You should know that. Although, a crew member did give extra food i request for a thing I liked."

Pros: "Very friendly crew and efficient check-in service. Food was lovely."
Cons: "Multiple problems with onboard entertainment re-setting itself."

Pros: "I travel from Sydney to Europe (UK and Greece) regularly. My experience with Qatar airways was fantastic: I highly recommend it. First of all, the travelling hours are a bit shorter (compared to travelling via Singapore or Hong Kong) probably because of the geography of the cities/connections and the corresponding flight times between Athens-Doha-Sydney. The aircraft was exceptional (I believe it was Airbus A380). It was a double-deck, wide-body and four-engine jet airliner. Cabin and economy class seats were very comfortable and more spacious compared to other aircraft. There was minimal turbulence, which is partially due to the type of aircraft: at least this is my understanding. The aircraft also had wi-fi (complimentary for the first 15 min) and one was allowed to use the mobile phone during the flight (except during take off and landing times). The flight attendants were absolutely amazing. Also, the crew was very understanding and friendly with children. Food was also excellent and in good portions. Overall there was high tech aircraft, excellent service and no delays. I will choose it again in the future."
Cons: "On the downside, I had a problem with my entertainment device during the whole flight: there was no sound, so I was not really able to watch any movies/TV.. The flight attendants tried to sort it out, but it was not possible. They kindly brought complimentary magazines and drinks/snacks, however it would have been much preferable if I could watch a movie or if free wi-fi was offered for the whole flight, as compensation.. My understanding is that this was not an option, due to problems providing free password..."

Cons: "The seats don't recline very far and on the a380 the window is a very long way from the seat making it impossible to lean against. - so difficult to get a reasonable test. The food was not great. Perhaps not qatar's fault(?) but we bought duty free alcohol in Brussels and took as carry on then after a layover in Doha we were advised Australian regulations prohibited us from taking it on board for the final leg - even though it was still sealed in the duty free bag. We were forced to check it protected only by some lightweight clothing and a thin back pack we had been using as cabin luggage. Fortunately it made it undamaged - but it would be better if we had been informed of this at Brussels."

Pros: "We liked how attentive your crew members were"
Cons: "The flight we took out from Doha to India was a bad experience the boarding was not handled well and the crew in that flight were not attentive."

Pros: "I have been in qatar airways many a times and they have done an excellent job connecting Kathmandu to outside world. The experience is usually very nice-the plane is in good condition, the fly crew are always smiling and helping, the food and entertainment are great."
Cons: "May be this is one time thing, but the ground crew were terrible, particularly the man who was on the check-in counter. Spoke with a robotic tone and was very rude. Spoke as if he owned the plane and we were asking for a free ride. Very disappointing start to a long journey."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Seats, unfriendly crew members, worst food "Hindu meal""

Pros: "Not a lot -14 hrs in cattle class is no fun."
Cons: "Toilet out of order from beginning of very long flight. Food ordinary. Doha airport transfer awful."

Pros: "Crew was great. Leg room good on 787"
Cons: "Food choices seemed a little under the Qatar standard considering the high level of quality for other aspects of this airline."

Pros: "The food was great and so was the staff. The plane was clean and spacious."

Cons: "You charge me around $400 Australian dollar because the emigration change the trip until I get the permission to travel overseas that not my fault , why you charge me all this amount ??!! Please return my money"

Pros: "Crew was great. Plane felt good and clean."
Cons: "My flight from Gainesville to Charlotte, we had to deplane down plane steps. I was told we would have jetway every flight. I have had hip replacement and steep steps very uncomfortable. Unable to deplane down them with both purse and small carryon. Someone always has to help me carry my carryon plus theirs as there is no provision for help from the airline. American seems to be only airline to do this, I will have to reconsider flying with you in the future."

Cons: "Foot room. Baggage room. Entertainment. Service"

Pros: "Flight attendants were amazing. Definitely some of the best I've ever encountered."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Friendly, efficient"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The Flight was inconveniently delayed and all they offered us were some cheap snacks and soda. I was completely annoyed by the whole situation."

Pros: "The mobile updates were helpful and timely."
Cons: "The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American."

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Wait for Baggage and 20+ mins getting to gate after we landed"

Pros: "Sears are comfortable and the entertainment is great as well."
Cons: "Not much to dislike."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: ". ."

Pros: "Flight was quick- onboard entertainment (streaming videos to your device) was cool...but the back of the plane is pretty bumpy and there was a lot of turbulance."

Pros: "All flights were on time. American Airlines personal is extremely friendly"

Pros: "The least service I have seen among all the airlines I have traveled so far"

Pros: "Nice entertainment on new 737."
Cons: "But it is a 3-3 and there no room to sit cause we are hip to hip which means shoulders overlap shoulders. It is horrible. Avoid this plane at all costs. It's really bad. Pitch of leg room is barely OK but side to side they have sunk to a new low. The new plane doesn't blow any air. Terrible system. Really? That should be easy to fix."

Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and that was horrible but they delivered it to my hotel which was nice."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the plane was clean, and all flights left and landed as scheduled. Actually, they landed and unloaded is early! Would recommend if you don't mind paying extra $25 to check a bag."
Cons: "That no checked bags are included in the flight costs. They didn't hide this or surprise me, but just a dislike."

Pros: "Getting bumped to First Class"

Cons: "My first flight was canceled then they took it upon themselves to bump me off the next light and put me on the latest flight where I got there at 11 o'clock at night then on the way home it was delayed again I missed my connecting flight and then he put me on the latest flight again it was a complete nightmare"

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Plane was clean and seating was not uncomfortable althouth they didn't recline very much. Short flight so it was o.k."

Pros: "The plane was clean, a/c worked well. Stewardesses offered food and drinks several times. Pilot repeatedly came over the intercom with updates on the flight."
Cons: "There was an annoying rattling noize coming from above my seat near the roof and wall."

Pros: "Plane was delayed repeatedly, then cancelled. I missed work and was originally offered a flight for twi days later. That wouldve been three days in an airport ? I had to purchase a room, taxi, and then spend the following day in the airport as that flight was repeatedly delayed. I booked a direct flight and was not rescheduled for such. Still waiting for reply from American Airlines. First time flying with this carrier and disappointed is an understatement."

Pros: "Loved that he was upfront with all of us that it would be a bumpy flight after about 20 minutes, which he was correct and very accurate."
Cons: "I thought his delivery sounded a little more "worrisome" than it needed to be. I thought that he could have expressed the same sentiment, while sounding more confident in his ability and more soothing for folks like me who despise turbulence:)"

Pros: "I enjoyed the whole experience. The staff was friendly and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "It was successful."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight overall. Also, it landed early."
Cons: "In Charlotte, they had to deplane on the tarmac and my daughter had a crutch, so she had to sit on the steps to go down them."

Pros: "Timelines"
Cons: "Turbulence, not there fault"

Cons: "Chaotic boarding Multiple delays Unfriendly ground staff"
