They moved my seat and then they asked me to sit in the back to balance the plane. I know I didn’t pay for seat selection but I don’t want to be a ping pong ball.
These types of planes have very small overheads bins. If you are not one of the first 25 on board, your folly bag goes gate checked.
The usual delays and of course our luggage never made it to our final destination.
It was so smooth…it was so nice to hsve no issues flying. This was the first time in a while that everything was effortless Thank you
Love the leg room and entertainment in comfort plus. Crew members were also excellent. However, serving gold fish and cookies twice on a 6hr flight is embarrassing. Delta should offer a better variety of snacks during a long flight.
Cons: "The one member on the crew team was rude and harsh. Very poor customer service skills."
Pros: "Great crew...seat spacing gives great comfort. Love they have a comfort class option. So much better experience than American. Wish Delta had more direct flights out of Charlotte."
Cons: "It was perfect!!"
Pros: "Great crew, spacing of passengers, comfortable, on time"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Arriving over a half an hour late"
Pros: "Crew, atmosphere, timeliness. I was satisfied overall"
Cons: "Gate number changed couple times before flight departure"
Pros: "Delicious food for coach"
Cons: "Cabin crew arrogant and rude Power ports didn’t work WiFi down"
Pros: "Entertainment. Flight attendants. Food"
Cons: "PROBLEM WITH LOCATING BAGGAGE CAROUSEL. GIVEN WRKNG LICATION ."
Cons: "The girls were sweet as usual!"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "I actually can not complain"
Pros: "There were minimal passengers on the flight so I was able to have the entire row to myself. The flight was also very short which is always nice."
Pros: "I love Delta! Always professional, efficient and polite. They disappoint on this round-trip flight. They are my go-to carrier. When I call the people whom I speak to are always very polite and efficient"
Cons: "The person next to me was a very large individual and the seats were not wide. This phenomenon had nothing to do with Delta as a carrier, however."
Pros: "Video access"
Cons: "Too hot, too crowded"
Cons: "Didn’t get our beverage and snack till we were almost ready to land at Charlotte"
Pros: "This was two hours of absolute freezing temperature"
Cons: "It was so cold it was actually unbeasable"
Pros: "Great experience. Left on time and landed early. Comfortable and great crew"
Cons: "Wish there were more snack options"
Pros: "Really nice staff all the way through from gate agent to flight attendants. Flight left on time and landed early. Night and day vs American"
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was perfect."
Cons: "I didn’t appreciate that your rude flight attendant allowed another passenger to move suitcase and she got an attitude with me. Delta there is always something on your flights."
Pros: "Like the smaller contingent of passengers. Boerding a lot quicker and simpler. Captain gave us some interesting details about plane and its capabilities."
Cons: "Exit row seats were were very uncomfortable, very little padding, although there was plenty of legroom. No snacks or entertainment. WiFi did not work."
Cons: "I was the very first person in line for Zone 3, and they automatically told me I had to gate check my bag, which would mean adding at least 20 minutes when I landed. I took it on the plane anyway; and there was PLENTY of space in the overhead compartments. This feels like I’m being treated as a second class citizen because I was unwilling to be nickel and dimed for seat or boarding upgrades. It’s infuriating"
Pros: "It was great because I was able to get an aisle seat."
Cons: "Like it all"
Pros: "Delta personnel were very pleasant/friendly"
Pros: "Flight attendant was nice. She changed my seat to the front cause the guy behind me was kicking my chair."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight from the day before and when they rebooked my flight, they could of gave me a better seat."
Cons: "My return portion of my flight was canceled and had to purchase a new ticket. I would like a full refund of my expenses."
Pros: "Left on time!"
Cons: "Too cramped"
Cons: "I understand gate changes happen, but I got 4 texts switching the gates back and forth. Is that necessary?"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and the boarding crew. From the time I walked up to the counter at LGA to the time I exited the plane in CLT, I was treated so kindly and with such respect. Kudos to the Delta Crew."
Cons: "The FLIGHT!!!!! There were delays. Scheduled take of time was 6:59 PM. We took off at 735 PM. Once I was on the plane, I started kicking myself in the you know what because I knew immediately I was scammed. I had purchased a 1st Class ticket for $400+, only to find that my comfort would be the equivalent of that if I purchased a ticket in economy. My long legs would still be cramped. For the past few years, I have been purchasing 1st class for it's spaciousness. On this flight, on the RCJ700, I did not fly comfortably. The space was very tight, and I was able to stretch my legs as if I sat in economy. This was by far, my most uncomfortable flight ever. SMH; A WASTE OF MY HARD EARNED MONEY!!!!!"
Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"
Pros: "We spent 90 min in line to take off on the tarmac. Pilot kept us informed. Crew were very pleasant."
Cons: "The fact they wasted two days of my trip with my son travelling from the U.S. to China because they didn't know about transit visa regulations. And so far they offered a 75 dollar voucher for participating merchants. Unacceptable"
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Pros: "Everything else fine."
Cons: "Made me check my bag - even though ther was plenty of overhead bin space."
Pros: "Speed and comfortable kind bars were a nice touch"
Cons: "Luggage went elsewhere"
Pros: "Plane left 2 hours late."
Pros: "The boarding process was very well done. Gate agent and flight attendants on top of their game. This is how it is supposed to be done. Thank you."
Cons: "Although weather played a part in the poor experience, it wasn't the only factor. Delta was unprepared."
Cons: "I paid for the upgrade to Delta Comfort Plus for an aisle seat & for some reason they reassigned our seats and I got Putin a middle seat. It was not what I paid for and it was very uncomfortable. If people pay to upgrade to specific seats we should. It be reassigned to whatever seat they want to put us in."
Cons: "The aircraft was older and visibly dirty in the corners. The baggage took well over the guaranteed 20 mins."
Pros: "The gate agents were courteous and efficient. The flight crew was very attentive. The pilots were clear in their announcements. Even though we were held up by sheer plane/ground traffic, we managed to still get back home early!"
Cons: "At one point on the initial flight, the cabin got so cold that I had to put on a jacket."
Very tight leg space in the cabin
Check-in was TERRIBLE !!! The AF staff was mostly clueless and not helpful, and the procedures in place were outdated.
Good cabin crew, Wi-Fi availability al through my trip.
Could not hear announcements from staff. Luggage in hold was delayed on both legs of trip.
Pros: "Easy boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly on bot departure and return flights. Will make me reconsider Air France in the future."
Pros: "Good aircraft, good service, on time, eventless"
Cons: "There are two types of foot-rests, both are a nuisance for people with long legs. The one popping up from below one's seat is extremely hard to put back in place. The metallic one folding down from under the seat in front cannot be secured back and is always in the way if the passenger needs to stretch his/her legs. This seems to be a new appliance, and I jut wish they would do away with it altogether. More is not necessarily better."
Pros: "Crew asked us if we’d like to move to an empty row to be more comfortable without us even requesting it."
Cons: "Bigger coffee cups? Really nothing to complain about. Everything I would expect from a flight. A++"
Pros: "The gentleman at the check out his name was Omar went over and above the call of duty for Customer Service me being an American he walked me through each step of using flybe via air France and paying for checking my bags and even the carry on luggage and getting me through security etc."
Cons: "The best airline what I was flying so far !! Excellent food, drink, comfort seat, free entertainment with great selection."
Cons: "Tell me i would misst the next flight and that my beg will not go to the final airport."
Cons: "Really hard to get boarding passes online"
Cons: "Check in process running smoothly and better announcement of gate change"
Pros: "The crew was amazingly helpful. My son was having some anxiety and they went out their way to make him comfortable. They were the best!"
Cons: "Boarding at CDG was awfully slow"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and accommodating"
Cons: "The flight was delayed, missed connection, and lost baggage. Subpar."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Flight was very crowded. Flight crew kept bumping into my seat and never apologized"
Cons: "I have never been in a situation were a flight has been delayed due to the co-pilot suffering a knee injury prior to take off. A request for a doctor on board after an hour or so and then having to leave the plane and then re-board after about 40 minutes was quite bizarre."
Cons: "My entertainment device did not work the entire flight."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "Very little room in economy class. For a 6'1" person, it's impossible to get comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was very gentile."
Cons: "No enterteinment on the plane."
Pros: "Extremely hot the plane"
Pros: "We were a little delayed, so I read my book. Not for long though as I was really tired after my flight from Los Angeles. I fell asleep right after take-off and didn't wake until we landed. Best way to fly :-)"
Cons: "Very little legroom for a 6'1" guy. Would have liked a bit more space, but I guess I was too tired to let it bug me."
Pros: "Over all pretty good for price."
Pros: "Check in process was easy. The flight attendants are all very helpful and kind. We are playing was OK but it could’ve been cleaned a little better before we got on board."
Cons: "Check in process was easy. The flight attendants are all very helpful and kind."
Pros: "That we were heading home. Nice seats. Good food. Lots of entertainment choices. Power plugs ( USB and European power) were appreciated. Wine as a choice with meal was appreciated and brandy after the meal."
Cons: "Some of the shows and movies were a bit 'trashy'. Long flight. I was in the middle seat next to an inattentive octanegarian who was nice but kept calling the flight crew to fix her mess up of the video system. No air controls on this plane - so it was overly warm. 10 hours of overly warm makes for a stinky passenger. Oof."
Pros: "That I was able to sleep a bit on the flight - and that we gained an hour."
Cons: "It left at 6 am. Which means we had a wake up call from the airport hotel at 3:30 am to stand in line with hundreds of others. The Air France app on my phone didn't let me pre- check in."
Pros: "Food was good. Crew nice and professional."
Cons: "Landing was not so smooth."
Pros: "Food was Fantastic, Air France the Best on Air."
Pros: "I liked the crew, they were professional and tried their best"
Cons: "The flight was a chartered flight . Air France informed us that due to cabin crew shortage they couldn't operate an air france flight and hence they hired Air Belgium. Whilst the crew were nice , the actual plane was old and creaky. It wasn't up to the standards expected of Air France. They could have done better in getting a plane up to standard. A lot of the passengers were disappointed ."
Pros: "The food, entertainment, and service. Waited for me after almost missing my flight."
Pros: "Service was great, flight was on time and I really enjoyed everything"
Cons: "Little turbulence but overall it comes as usual so it was worth the flight"
Pros: "Nothing special"
Cons: "They start serving late the apperitif before taking off and take it back right after."
Pros: "Crew very professional and nice food Boarding process well organized"
Cons: "Poor seat comfort in business class and no entertainment for a flight lasting more than 1h"
Pros: "The hostesses were very kind and nice"
Cons: "only there were del;ay at JFK"
Pros: "the food"
Cons: "no room for legs"
Pros: "Missed connection and it was airport not Delta that was the problem. Not a good way to start a vacation. Rating is for the Paris Airport, not the flight crew or Air France employees. Still sitting in the airport when we should be at our destination."
Cons: "Hundreds of people missed their flights. Delta had us into Paris with an hour and a half to get to connecting flight. Missed flight due to huge delay in passport approval. They seemed completely unprepared."
Pros: "Nothing..worst experience ever. Simply apologising for delayed doesn't help"
Cons: "Flight into and out of indiapolis was delayed by 2 hours. Missed my connection flight to LHR because of the delay. never had such a flying experience. Flight was operated by Delta. I won't be flying them again."
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "Seat to seat space OK for anyone under 4 ft tall. Pressed intoth seat framein front, I couldn't even turn or get my feet under the seat to extend."
Pros: "It was as expected."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit tedious because we had to first board a bus to take us to the airplane."
Cons: "Couldn't adjust the seat and the cushion wasn't comfortable neither seat or back. The bottom back was like a board across the bottom and hurts."
Pros: "cookies were great"
Cons: "we paid for two seats together (one aisle and one middle) an exit row with extra legroom from paris to LA. but when we got to Prague they had one of us in the middle seat in the exit row and the other in a completely different part of the plane, also a middle row. The folks in Prague couldn't fix this, they moved one ticket to a different exit row, not together, different part of the plane. In Paris, but ONLY after I located my receipt on my phone, they moved us to the seats we had paid for."
Pros: "Croissants instead of pretzels was a nice change of snack"
Cons: "Computer failure rendered the check in process a total mess. Staff seemed utterly at a loss and also totally unprepared for this very early and very full flight. Most passengers seemed to have multiple bags to check. Since this is a regular flight it was hard to understand why check in staff wandered in late when time was already tight - let alone having a system failure as well to deal with. We were 50 minutes late leaving. This resulted in many of us either missing or having extremely tight (stressful) connections at CDG Paris."
Pros: "I liked their seats, I had enough space to get comfortable flying internationally for 14 hours."
Cons: "Just wish they served water a couple times more, because when you're in the plane for the whole day, 2-3 little cups isn't enough."
Pros: "Pleasant staff."
Cons: "I sat next to an overweight lady and was incredibly uncomfortable my entire flight. There needs to be better regulation for overweight passengers to ensure that every passenger has enough room"
Pros: "Smiling, quick, courteous"
Cons: "Had to pee right after turbulence no time for bathroom"
Pros: "I normally like to take an Air France flight. I love the food and the crew treatment. I like this French know how."
Cons: "I really don't like this new scedule at 11.00 My flight from Nantes needs to take off at 6.10 I need to leave home at 3.00 I imagine that I am not the only one with this kind of problems. Please, try to help"
Pros: "Overall very good on time flight."
Cons: "I had wrong gate number on my boarding pass and I had to look for the gate and only one hour for transfer.Very stressful."
Pros: "Yes made sure mask was in place"
Pros: "Plane wasn’t full, they allowed everyone to spread out in the plane"
Cons: "No pre flight service in first class even though we sat at the gate for an extra 30 minutes."
Pros: "The Consistency!"
Cons: "Location of the gates in Charlotte are always so far away from one another!"
Cons: "Same old tiny uncomfortable commuter jet."
Pros: "It was difficult to find something to like."
Cons: "Everything could have been better. The terminal out of Charlotte looked like a bus terminal, unacceptable for AA since it is one of their hubs. I understand it was a busy holiday weekend, but the airline should have been better prepared for our arrival. While the pilot did an excellent job in getting us in NY on time after airport delays on departure, AA must have not had enough staff working when we arrived. Customers waited over 30 minutes for bags to arrive, which arrived at a different belt than what had been originally scheduled. There were no AA staff in sight when we arrived in NY either. I will do my best not to fly AA again."
Pros: "Not a lot. Entertainment options on board were decent. Food was alright."
Cons: "Everything! Crew were terse, rude and inattentive. Due to an issue with a bag on board without the associated passenger we had to taxi back to the stand for it to be removed before we could take off. This cost us an hours delay. There was limited apologies for this, no refreshments provided during the wait and poor communication of this. During the flight the staff were inattentive and sparing with refreshments. Service generally did not live up to expected level associated with an inter-continents flight. The flight was turbulent but crew and captain seemed over cautious with it and crew had to remain seated unnecessarily at times and at the detriment of passenger service. One stewardess wouldn’t even let me finish a drink before removing it from my hand claiming we were about to land and she had to sit down because of turbulence. We were still 40 mins from landing at this point! All in all a pretty bad flight, and it’s safe to say I won’t be flying American Airlines again."
Pros: "I just like flying in general"
Cons: "Flying oo high of the altitude made my ears feel like they’re about to burst."
Cons: "I wish my booking came with a record locator for easy check in"
Pros: "I hated the whole experience"
Cons: "I’ve never flown American Airlines and the flight was on time."
Cons: "Flight delays twice coming out of Augusta. Barely made connection otherwise flight was ok"
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "I would blame this on myself but had a second incident with CheapoAir. The date was wrong and neither cheapoAir NOR AA would help me to fix it without extravagant fees. Ended up eating the ticket."
Pros: "Great flight crew!!"
Cons: "Better food menu!"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "Less bumps"
Cons: "Actually having a flight to Charlotte. They delayed flight without much warning... actually, they were delaying/cancelling many flights without warning most of the day. Long story short, I had to get a ride to LaGuardia, to catch a different flight. That flight got delayed when boarding"
Cons: "The personal device entertainment wasn't working, which made for a long, dull flight."
Pros: "Plane was late in arriving so boarding was delayed. Took off 1/2 hour late, but landed on time in Miami."
Cons: "Snack offered by American could be better than some dry cookies. Especially for Diabetic passengers."
Pros: "Great seats w no annoying entertainment console."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Tiny seats, no snack or napkin with the drink. Noise in back."
Pros: "Good overall service level of AA"
Cons: "USB-, and Audio plugs are misplaced in the AA Premium Economy seats. Acrobatic skills required to connect/disconnect devices"
Pros: "Plane was new and clean..good leg room."
Cons: "Being told to shut window blinds and spent most of the journey in darkness. No hot drinks. Long gaps between cold drinks. Staff not very friendly."
Cons: "The gentleman sitting next to me never turned his phone in to airplane mode. His phone rang several times while the flight attendant was going through the safety procedures right in front of us. This was after the announcement came that all electronic devices where to go into airplane mode. The flight attendant did not do anything and seemed to ignore the phone that kept ringing. The gentleman was even talking on the phone while the flight attendant was going through the safety procedures. Later while landing an announcement came over that we were to return to our seats, close all tray tables, and seats ts in the upright position. At this point the gentleman sitting next to me leaned his seat backwards. The flight attendant passed by the gentleman at least three times and never said anything about his seat back. Evidently this flight attendant did not care to do his job properly."
Pros: "late boarding - Chaotic at the boarding gate"
Cons: "BAD Public Relations: AA announced the flight was overbooked, then called up 3 young ladies. Their reaction was seen by everyone. They had just gone through the entire procedure to get to the gate and were forced to be stranded. FIRST CLASS: food service: could there be a rating less than POOR? we were given 10,000 miles (yes that bad) but just like Whose line - the points don't matter when the airlines is that bad! Crew response: We're not any worse than the other airlines - my response: WRONG! NO WIFI NO entertainment NO CHARGING AREA magazines were missing pages in both seats- requested new one never received"
Cons: "That I had to take multiple plans when I wanted a one time stop"
Pros: "Good legroom on economy"
Cons: "Great flight great crew. Only issue was something was wrong with the entertainment system on my seat. Never worked"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable flight."
Pros: "The plane was late but from that point everything was fine."
Pros: "Quick floght"
Cons: "We sat in the tarmac for 30 minutes and I almost missed my connection"
Pros: "I got there safely."
Cons: "I will never fly American Airlines again. From the moment I checked in with the ticket agent to getting off the plane it was a disaster. The ticket agent was rude, hostile, and dismissive. Employees walked through the line at security forcing everyone to consolidate their belongings to one bag. I had a large wallet in my hand and was told I had to step out of line to put it in my backpack. They only allow you one bag to carry on without paying extra. At the time of boarding they announced that the overhead storage was full so even those that paid extra were still forced to check their bags. The plane was dirty, the service was slow, overall just gross. They don’t have WiFi or in flight entertainment so I paid the $20 to purchase the WiFi. It was worthless. I couldn’t stream anything, even music kept stopping to buffer. I understand it will be slower then on ground WiFi, but it was impossible to watch anything and a complete waste of money."
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "The flight got delayed from salt lake and we had to spend a day in Charlotte before another flight came"
Pros: "Everything. I bought some souvenir magnets from the shop across from Starbucks near Gate C5(?). The gentleman working the register was very pleasant and was a welcome personality so early in the day. As a service member, I would like to thank him for his service. He was consistent in asking patrons whether they’d like to purchase a travel kit for the troops. A few patrons were abrupt and responded rudely but he maintained a level head and pressed on. Great attitude and professionalism. Thank you very much for your support! Also, I was able to get my Military discount applied towards my purchase which enabled me to purchase 1 travel kits for my fellow service members. A little goes a long way and when returning from deployments or coming home for R&R, it tends to be hectic and I, myself have often forgotten toiletries which I was able to get from the USO. The USO staff were also friendly and did an amazing job handling all of the personnel that funneled in, exhausted. Great attitudes and clean facilities. I would love to see an expansion to this USO location. They were full up this day, thank you for having this available to us! TSgt Angela Santiago Otero, USAF"
Cons: "No baggage controls from seat 18 to 28 no bags would fit. As we exited all the front rows we're waiting to get there bags stored in back of planes overhead bins. That's just not right, especially when they charge us extra to take a bag for overhead bins storage."
Pros: "The plane was newer, drinks are available. Seat only reclines half an inch or so so get ready for that."
Cons: "Crew on aa is the worst bunch of entitled fools, almost as horrendous as united."
Pros: "I like the fact we got to Dayton 20 minutes early!"
Cons: "I don't like the fact that we don't have access to the overhead"
Pros: "Terrific meals, active flight crew and very attentive."
Cons: "Blankets seemed dirty and seats were cramped. Gate was changed but that was not communicated well, so we almost missed the flight."
Cons: "The internet wasn't working, and the flight attendant told me there was nothing she could do about it. The touch screens on the back of the seat had difficulty responding to touch. The headphone jacks and headphones they gave us on the plane were not compatible. If it twisted even a bit, it would lose the connection. I understand these may seem petty, but they are things we've come to expect on airline travel. If they aren't going to be there, please let us know when we book our tickets so we can plan accordingly. The flight attendant for my section of the plane was cold and a bit rude. I didn't want to ask her for anything."
Cons: "Got a notification of a TWO HOUR DELAY departing SFO. Rebooked into Charlotte instead of Dallas to connect to Fort Myers. THAT flight got delayed AFTER the doors were closed by another 45 minutes which caused me to miss my connection to Fort Myers AND have American Airlines leave my bag in Charlotte. I rebooked into West Palm Beach to drive to Fort Myers and my bag stayed in Charlotte even though there was ANOTHER 45 minute delay to change a tire on the plane. If I practiced medicine the way the airline handled customers, I'd kill every third patient!"
Cons: "I found out at the airport the day we were leaving for Spain that my daughter's passport had to be valid for 3 Months after we returned home from our trip. When booking a flight out of the country it would be nice if Air .com could of mention that to me. We were trying to get to a cruise we had already paid for that was going out of Spain. They would not work with me at all and cx my whole booking. When I tried to talk to them on the phone the man could not speak very good English and was not making any since at all. I let him talk to the British Airlines counter manager and the manager tried to explain that he would have to rebook us that he could not. Air.com was horrible and never helped us out at all. They should not be in business . I paid them of course months ago and I was just out the 1400.00 dollars. British Airlines was amazed that they did nothing to help us out."
Pros: "Liked that one of the flights ha a usb connection to charge my phone"
Cons: "It was slightly more cramped in the seating and it was very warm for the duration of the flight"
Pros: "The trip from st martin was fine in terms of check in. AA opened their windows early so we beat the crowd."
Cons: "The plane left 20 minutes late, and then we hit turbulence and a bit of rain close to our arrival in Charlotte. I had originally booked a flight through Miami with plenty of layover time to get a connecting flight to Dallas, but AA canceled that one and put me on a connection the following day! When I called customer service, they were helpful in regards booking and assured me there would be plenty of time to connect through Charlotte. When our plane landed 35 minutes late, there was only 15 minutes to connect, and we waited for baggage that whole time. No idea what took baggage so long, but the result is that we missed our flight. AA did put us on standby for the next one, but that meant our relative had to pick us up at midnight."
Cons: "They lost 1 of 4 bags."
Pros: "All flights were on time and the flight each way was very quick."
Cons: "It cost me $86 dollars to supposedly upgrade my seat to an exit row with tons of leg room. Granted there was plenty of leg room but the seat was extra narrow to give room for an emergency exit if necessary. I'm not huge but I barely fit in the seat. It was an uncomfortable squeeze which of course got worse as the flight continued. I complained to an attendant that the seat was too small and he had no remedy. If I was a few pounds heavier it would have been impossible. You'd think they would warn a customer of the narrower seat. It's so obvious that it's all about profit for the airlines which sickens me."
Pros: "As usual the plane was clean and everybody involved with American was very friendly."
Cons: "There wasn't anything that I did not like I wish they gave you peanuts instead of pretzels or chips"
Cons: "Apparently my seat change did not go through because I was still stuck in the last row near the bathrooms. I must say, the fecal aroma really complemented the on set nausea that was triggered by the turbulence. Every time I thought I was gona drift off to sleep I was rudely awakened by the constant "thwacking" of the bathroom doors. The family next to me was nice enough but they did have a toddler who was very loud and unhappy and the tantrums followed. I have been a server for 14 years and generally can brush annoyances off like this but this was by far the worst flight I have been on."
Pros: "I slept."
Cons: "The crew was overall terrible. For someone who also works in customer service, I was actually appalled at the behavior of the AA crew/staff. The flight attendants were ok, but the boarding crew was terrible and unbelievably unhelpful. I asked a staff member at check in if i needed to check my bag and he seemed really annoyed by my question, and refused to be of any help. Wow! He was so unbelievably rude. I ended up paying $25 to check a bag I didn't need to check. I was so disappointed. In the future, I think I will try to avoid flying AA."
Pros: "The Good: The seat configuration available for an upcharge of $38 gave just enough additional room to make getting my frail elderly mother in and out of her seat and accessing items she needed from a bag stored under the seat ahead of me much easier and safer than it would have been in, say, the sardine can-like conditions of the coach section on United flights."
Cons: "The Bad: At boarding, American does not provide pre-boarding for those who need extra time. I was traveling with my elderly mother, who can walk (very) short distances but is quite frail. American was great about providing a wheelchair to the gate, but then we were on our own. Because there was no designated boarding for people needing extra time or assistance, I had to sharp elbow my way to the front of the post-first class boarders and talk folks into letting her through. Stressful for both of us."
Checking in Madrid was a mess. I was there two and a half hour before flight departure, however, I has to wait during almost two hours to complete the check in. Considering all the changes and the documentation that has to be verified they should have hire more people. We weren’t informed and people were nervous.
Pros: "Super friendly"
Cons: "Maybe a hot meal?"
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "We were waiting for a long time in the bus from the airport to the aircraft. Once we got to the plane, we were waiting inside the bus again."
Pros: "The food served was really good (bacalhau), and the crew very friendly."
Cons: "The boarding in Lisbon was a total disaster: no control of lines, unprepared staff, very confusing and slow. The airplane was very uncomfortable: very small seats, almost no reclining of chairs, very warm inside. Horrible flight!"
Cons: "We were not able to board the plane. We left our morning flight from Madrid on time and arrived as expected. We hurried through the airport and went exactly where we were directed. Despite this, the gates closed on us while we were running to the gate. TAP sold us a service they could not provide."
Pros: "Smooth boarding, good vegetarian food options, helpful and friendly staff, and more legroom than my previous flight."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Lots of hidden fees, horrible customer service, no flight entertainment available, seats were uncomfortable. Definitely would not recommend"
Pros: "The overall experience was great"
Cons: "It was indeed a good experience"
Pros: "Punctuality, service and confort"
Pros: "The better question is what did we not like."
Cons: "Careless staff, unorganized, rude, long lines with slow working agents. We were traveling with our three and six year old and started with a weather delay and then eventually a cancellation. We stood at the Barcelona airport from 7pm until 2:30am with our children. Nobody offered us food vouchers, taxi or hotel. We had to ask and only got a hotel which was an hour away and taxi on us costing us over $100 euro! Everything closed and our children ate cookies from a vending machine for dinner. Finally we got to our hotel after 3am and slept until 6:30am to catch another taxi on us back to the airport just to find out it’s delayed and we would miss our connection in Madrid back to Miami. We arrived the airport again at 9am and at 3pm we’re finally given food vouchers for our hungry children to eat something. American Airlines has a direct flight from Barcelona to Miami but they insisted they couldn’t do that for us and we’d again stay another night in Barcelona at a hotel. This would all be fine if we weren’t traveling with small children, they didn’t have school and we didn’t have to work and had extra money to pay for all the inconveniences. This was by far the worst experience we’ve had and will never choose Tap again for our travels!"
Cons: "Flight#1 was late. I missed the connecting flight to Basel. I have to stay overnight in Brussels and fly VERY early to Basel in the morning."
Pros: "Everything great"
Pros: "Big plane. Breakfast snack was a nice surprise, didn’t expect that on an intra-European flight"
Cons: "Boarding started a bit late, didn’t like the bussing on the airport. Entertainment minimal (then again, it was an intra-European flight ...)"
Pros: "Good and entertainment options in executive class."
Cons: "Flight departed LIS late due to a couple of passengers. Definetly not the airline’s fault."
Pros: "Nice crew, tasty snack, new plane with comfortable seats"
Cons: "Huge bag charge for anything over 8 kg! Sign said last call 40 min before flight when agent told us to check board 30 min before flight for gate assignment!"
Pros: "was a direct flight"
Cons: "we were made to exit down a slepery stairs and pack ourselves like sadines on a bus to the terminal..not good!"
Pros: "Check in was handled professionally and personally. Service throughout the flight was cordial."
Cons: "The entertainment system was non existent on the Airbus 319."
Pros: "There wasn't anything special to like compares to other good airlines. I would say crews attitudes and foods were alright."
Cons: "Doesn't have a USB cable to charge the phone and there were no perfume or toothbrush for the long journey. Also no apple juice."
Pros: "Flight was on time and landed early. We got small samdwiches with a snack and juice."
Pros: "Cabinstaff were friendly and professional"
Cons: "Friendliness flight attendees Service on board Equipment/ tv Food beverage service Language skills of flight attendants"
Cons: "1) I tried several times while traveling but was unable to figure out how to choose a vegetarian option for the flight. When I called customer service, after a long hold time, the woman I finally spoke to told me it was too late to order vegetarian and refused to help me. I have never flown another airline (Air India, Turkish Air, United, American, China Southern, etc., etc.) that did not make this easy to choose during booking or check-in and that did not already have a standard ovo-lacto vegetarian option on the regular menu. Vegetarians practice for all sorts of reasons, including religion and health needs. It's unacceptable to make it so difficult to meet your meal needs while trapped on a plane for nine hours. 2) The check-in agent did not know the rule about all remaining seats being opened for passenger choice three hours before booking and insisted we had to pay to get aisle seats despite one of us having a health problem necessitating her standing up and walking every 45 minutes. Then another agent told us we couldn't choose seats for free for our Porto to Newark flight when we check in for our Madrid-Porto flight because it wasn't technically three hours before the Porto-Newark departure. But how were we supposed to choose seats for the Porto-Newark flight three hours in advance if we are in an airplane flying to Porto at that time? This makes no sense. Seats should be opened for every leg of a same-day journey at the same time. The agents were unhelpful and unsympathetic. 3) This was an old plane without options to choose a film or show to watch. Instead, passengers could flip through a few channels and hope to find something of interest that was already playing -- there was no way to begin a film or show from the beginning if you landed on it in the middle of its running time. I cannot recommend TAP Portugal to any of my friends, family, or colleagues after this experience."
Cons: "I have traveled to and from Portugal in TAP for many years and never ever did I have to pay for a checked bag till this year. It is totally a robbery to be charging people for 1 checked bag of only 50lbs. not only is it ridiculous but robbery. You charge a lot of money for the flights as it is and to go and charge people to check a bag on an international flight is insane. It is to bad I have to fly back with you because I will not be flying with you ever again after this I will take my money elsewhere. Also you need to let people know that they are being charged for luggage when the are booking their flight because when I booked my flight nowhere did it say I had to pay for my luggage. It already was rediculous that we are only aloud 1 50lb bag checked and now you want people to pay for it too? Pretty soon you minus well have people just get on a plane naked!!"
Pros: "I got to Rio de Janeiro on time"
Cons: "cramped seats, minimal water offered by crew on 9.5 hour flight. I also found the extra charge to reserve a seat on this flight a serious affront to economic sensibility"
Cons: "Selected to check my hand luggage due to full flight . No reason at all for this at all."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "No VOD No food available in between meals"
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew very friendly, check in process easy"
Cons: "Seats are very unconfortable and the space limited. baggage policy isn't very clear; I had to pay 20 extra euros for a checked bag"
Pros: "Good movie selection. Kind staff."
Cons: "Attendants did not check on us for about four hours, and it was not a red-eye. So, a snack or drink would have been noce."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!!!"
Cons: "Everything but specially the fact that there was no Business class but tickets Were sold and in the end not even assigned seats. No previous info or whatsoever ... this company is becoming worst than a low cost ... well much worst !!!"
Pros: "Food is worst I ever had in business class in 15 years of frequent flying. Worse than even many economy classes. Worse than many shirt hauls. Service is poor. Seats are super old. Only upside: on time"
Cons: "Nothing to like here except timeliness"
Pros: "The flight was quick, boarding was easy and efficient."
Cons: "Flight attendants can be a bit nicer."
Pros: "The crew was great and very kind; the pilot informed us a couple of times of where we were and how long to the destination; we arrived 10 minutes ahed of time! A perfect flight!"
Pros: "Crew and food Were ok."
Cons: "The whole flight, TAP decided to use low cost aircrafts to do long distance flights ..... very poor. Far too much Discomfort no entertainment at all."
Cons: "The monitors did not work."
Cons: "They gave my 70-year old mother only a few hours notice that they were changing her one-stop four-hour 6AM flight into an 8AM multi stop 14-hour marathon. In fact, she was already asleep when they changed her flight, so she was already at the airport when she found out about the change. To do this to a 70-year old woman is reprehensible. Worse, after 2-hours with customer service, nobody there made any real attempt to remedy the situation or offer any compensation. Worst airline experience EVER."
Pros: "everything was great"
Cons: "they had some video problems early in the flight but had it fixed about a third into the flight"
Cons: "My reservation was cancelled."
Pros: "Friendly crew. Good info on delay"
Cons: "No offer of coffee in businesss when woke up. Still 35-40 before landing"
Cons: "Very poor check in!! We checked two bags when we went to the desk to get our boarding passes.....then when we were boarding the plane, I went through without a problem but my wife was flagged. we were informed that we now had to pay for our checked bags..both of us even though I had already been cleared. 70 dollars was needed...and so with our flight ready to leave we had to just about run 250 meters and then back 250 meters to catch our flight....we are in our 60's!!!!!. If we had to pay we should have been told at check in! and to make matters worse both of our checked bags are carryon size...we only checked them because we thought it would be convenient. Given that it was not our mistake that bag fee should have been waived....very poor customer service to people who have flown TAP many times........"
Pros: "Free blanket, pillow, headphones, and wine! Flight was on time, no one weighed or measured carry on bags."
Cons: "Tight seats for an international flight!"
Cons: "Missed that flight because of previous delay"
Pros: "The crew was super nice and professional"
Cons: "The plan was delayed 2 hours, seats were beyond small."
Pros: "newer plane Very difficult to fly cheaper to GVA, not my first flight, not my last"
Pros: "on time clean plane price"
Cons: "flight attendant not super friendly older plane thus enttainement outdated"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats. No high headrest for a quickie nap. Non organized boarding from bus to tarmac which left me having to put my personal belongings 22 rows BEHIND me!"
Pros: "arrived on time"
Cons: "baggage fee for 1 checked bag"
Pros: "Big space between seats. Best screen entertainment."
Cons: "Food was only average. Especially fish."
Pros: "We were shuttled to the plane then the plane wasn't ready, so the bus took us back. We just stood on the bus by the gate for a good 20min. Then went back to the plane again. This time it was ready for boarding. I don't understand why they took us if the plane was ready. Once we were there why did we go back to the gate again?? Get it together TAP. My first and only experience and it wasn't a good one."
It didnt happen because my flight to london was cancled
There was a child that was crying a lot at first, so it was minorly annoying, but I'm sure that's out of their control, so that's fine. The first meal (chicken pot pie) was good, but the others (wrap and sandwich) were just kind of okay. I liked the meals going from SFO to London more.
Pros: "Quick flight. Friendly cabin crew."
Pros: "Breakfast was great, quick loading , great staff ,leg room was much better for my 6’1” husband with a knee replacement."
Cons: "Due to my husband’s knee replacement, he is always taken to another area to be searched and checked while his wallet and all of his valuables ate left on the conveyer belt unattended and could be stolen by anyone. I grabbed his stuff but they didn’t know who I was. They need a more secure policy."
Pros: "Yes.. crew was awesome.. Wish they did not charge us for drinks the second time around"
Cons: "Free drinks throughout the entire flight"
Cons: "Unnecessary delay"
Pros: "Attentive crew, plenty to drink"
Cons: "Not crazy about the seat arrangement on this plane"
Pros: "Crew was very good, seats were ok"
Cons: "Everything Good"
Pros: "There is o option to say food not applicable hence 1 star the menu to buy looked ok but didnt use it seat was standard and fine"
Pros: "On time and comfortable flight."
Cons: "No free snacks."
Pros: "Nice crew Good food Good landing and no uncomfortable turbulence"
Cons: "Personal tv didnt work for majority of flight and when it did there was no audio (update technology ASAP)"
Pros: "Boarding with efficiency"
Cons: "Food horrible. Too Salty, No taste"
Cons: "Just believe overall they could do better"
Cons: "Late departure caused down stream issues."
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "There is a charge for beverage service."
Cons: "British airways new I'l be late , they could send someone to pick me up from the security point, so I could have been on time."
Pros: "This was actually a very pleasant trip. Left a few minutes late (minor mechanical issue) but arrived right on time. Crew was courteous and efficient. The food was the best I have had on any airline in years. Entertainment included a good selection of recent movies."
Cons: "I'm 6'2" and slender - those seats are tight in both leg room and shoulder width, hence the "OK" rating for comfort. I was fortunate that my seat mates were also slender so none of us overlapped the armrests, and that the person ahead of me never reclined their seat because I have no idea of where my legs would have fitted had they done so. The only other gripe is that the volume of the entertainment system seems disconnected from the announcement system. The announcement system is WAY louder than the entertainment system - painfully so. I noticed many others around me also ripping off their headphones when a crew announcement commenced."
Pros: "The staff were professional. Boarding was orderly. The flight was smooth. The lavatories were clean."
Cons: "As a tall man, even with an entire row to myself, it was impossible to be comfortable. I had to fold myself like origami to fit. My head and neck was pitched forward, even with the seat back reclined. You got me, next time I’ll spring for business class."
Cons: "my ticket was suspended for no reason, asked me get another ticket book , can't board, later a lady ( Sonam ) there in check in counter resolved. The check in Staff Mr. Gaurav at India airport was rude and over smart while talking to me, he pretended he was busy , but who is FREE in this world. Poor experience at the time of check in. and yes Thanks to Sonam who walked extra mile to talk to customer care of british airways and resolved for my ticket. Finally I could board. Even if ticket was suspended why it was not informed me to take any pro active action, why I had to wait in long queue to know that my ticket was suspende, IS IT NOT RESPONSIBILITY OF BA ???"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The absence of free internet"
Pros: "Not much - the entertainment choices were good and the flight was safe and smooth. Plus my bag turned up from Helsinki, Heathrow, Singapore, sydney"
Cons: "The biz class seats on BA are just horrible. The biz class service - BA aren’t even trying to match other airlines. A stingy snenities kit and a blanket doesn’t come close to qantas or emerites. The food is an embarrassment - microwave dinners over heated is a a generous description. Crew do as little as possible (they don’t want to be they’ve either)"
Pros: "flight on time"
Cons: "hard to check in to BA in Helsinki. signage could be better as this was a code share."
Cons: "The plane was ridiculously freezing cold; the AC was way too low and now I am ill. I complained on numerous occasions but the temperature remained! Also there was hardly any leg room."
Pros: "Crew was courteous. Seats were comfortable, but tight. Meal was tasty and the entertainment was great."
Cons: "Boarding is totally chaotic. Once priority boarding is done it is every man for themselves. Most airlines give you a boarding number and that cuts down on the pushing and shoving."
Pros: "Was able to get a bulkhead seat. Wheelchair staff were very efficient at LHR and TPA. Wheelchair helpers were very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "The there was not a legroom class (or bulkhead seat)that could be pre-specified. I do not really care about other extras extras for premium economy. It is critical to me that I can physically fit into the space between my seat and the one in front."
Pros: "No food or entertainment. Flight was delayed, then delayed more because of gate assignment."
Cons: "The seats were not comfortable and no entertainment on the flight."
Cons: "The woman who worked the British Airways desk in Helsinki and checked our bags is not suited for a customer service position. The screens on the British Airways long haul planes are tiny and difficult to operate. A 2,5 h flight where you can't even get water complimentary is appalling. Honestly all of your competitors offer a snack and beverages complimentary even if the flight is only 45 min. The boarding for London to Dallas flight was very confusing and could have been made easier with grouping the boarding instead of tons of people piling up to rush in at once."
Pros: "That Pilot has to bring my buggy"
Cons: "Socking wet buggy Head rest in pices Rubbishy in the pockets Staff confused about checked in bag I purchase on different occasion than ticket, took ages to sort it out"
Pros: "The entertainment controls give many options which is nice to help pass the time."
Cons: "The attendants were not as helpful as I thought they should have been and actually were a bit unpleasant."
Cons: "Having to pay for a cup of tea!"
Pros: "Because of the cabin crew strike the old biddies pushing the trolleys were smart enough to give the passengers double the quota of wine to keep us quiet so we didn't mind the slow food service. I had an excellent flight sleeping thru half of it."
Cons: "The audio provided by the ear buds provided produced very poor results, probably causes long term hearing loss."
Pros: "Despite a four hour delay the staff was in good spirits and generally pleasant. The entertainment selections were also comprehensive."
Cons: "The food choices were very limited (chicken curry or pasta alfredo) neither of which were dairy free."
Pros: "Flight there was ok."
Cons: "British Airways customer service was terrible. Flight was delayed. We called BA and they told to us to arrive at the later flight and find our connection in London. This was not the right thing to do and we are still not home. We are now stuck in DC, have no clue where our luggage is. BA has provided no information. Not sure why they even have a call line."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Plane had a bit more legroom than others I've been on recently. That was a pleasant surprise"
Cons: "Airlines in general need to do a better job of controlling the boarding process (using the groups to board) and controlling the amount of luggage people bring on. Peoples definition of a "personal item" are skewed."
Cons: "Your airways lost my bag on the both flights from MIA-LHR-VIE and on the way back VIE-LHR-MIA My entertainment system was broken. I paid for the seat at the end of the day I didn't get. The moat horrible flight I ever had. I will never again fly with British Airways"
Cons: "As like always late"
Pros: "Customer service."
Cons: "Embracardo plane is small."
Pros: "First this flight wasn't operated nor flown byfinnair. We were delayed leaving Berlin, which made us delayed getting to London, they rescheduled us, delayed leaving London (we paid for direct route to Dallas, we were rerouted to Chicago), delayed getting into Chicago, missed flight to Dallas, had to stay in chicago overnight, delayed leaving Chicago, arrived in Dallas 23 hours after supposed to be home."
Cons: "That it wasn't even Finnair but that's how it was sold to us, that we paid for direct route, but we weee sent to another city and had more legs on flight."
Pros: "Movies. And friendly staff"
Cons: "Decided eating flight delayed. Boarding was bad. This missed connecting flight. Rebooked for flight several hours later and wasted entire day instead of enjoying half a day in Madrid"
Cons: "They wouldn't book is into our flight from a different terminal causing is to miss the flighr"
Pros: "British Airways makes you pay extra to pick your seat The alternative is to take the luck of the draw and hope you don't get the middle on the center aisle Kind of annoying"
Pros: "Especially a flight attendant...he was in the back of the plane, unfortunately I can't remember his name, he was so very nice , attentive to our needs and wants...what a difference it can make to have staff like him.And in general ell staff staff on board were very courteous and friendly...they were there not just to work, but to be kind and very pleasant."
Cons: "Hummmm I don't know. Liked everything!"
Cons: "The whole trip."
Pros: "We flew on an enormous double-decker Airbus that was equipped with an entertainment system that offered dozens of movies, TV shows, and other entertainment to keep the entire family occupied for the length of the flight. We could also charge our phones and other electronic devices from our seats. The flight attendants were all very nice and the food was fine. The distance between the rows in coach was comfortable, even for a 6' tall person. It was a great flight!"
Cons: "One of our bags did not make the connecting flight from Rome but it was delivered to our house the next day, so in the end it was fine!"
Pros: "The bad elements of this flight experience far outweigh anything that might have been acceptable."
Cons: "Our flight was plagued by issues which were both avoidable and unavoidable. Here is a list - * I was able to check-in online but my husband was not and kept receiving error messages (no big deal) * Upon arrival at the check-in counter, the line was incredibly long. I understand this happens but of the employees working, only 2 were checking in bags and 3 others were just standing there chatting and talking into walky talkies. * Flight from Rome to Heathrow was late for no apparent reason, landed 45 minutes prior to our connection flight. I inquired with our flight attendant about the potential to make boarding and he said they would let us know. We landed on the tarmac and had to be bussed to the terminal. Not once after we landed did the flight crew mention one word about connecting flights. Never have I had that experience in 44 years. Additionally, there was no direction regarding priority for boarding the busses. When we finally entered the terminal, an airline employee displayed a sign calling for passengers connecting on a flight to San Diego which was taking off just 10 minutes after ours to San Jose. A choice few of these folks were driven over to their boarding gate while many of us were left behind. * When we made it the recommended "Fastrack Express" the attendant informed us that we had already been cancelled out of our connecting flight to San Jose (this was 30 minutes before take off)! We were directed to go wait in line to re-book our flights. * After an hour in line we learned that the couple behind us had already been re-booked onto that evening flight to SJ, which would have been the next out. I wonder how that happens when you are further behind in line? After waiting 4.5 hours in line. We were told that and approximately 3 other convenient flights which would have been a possibility were no longer available since we had been made to wait for so long. There were no places to sit, no numbering system, we did not eat at all that day until 11pm and that was after waiting another 45 minutes to get our passports stamped and then stupid bus ride. *We were forced to miss hosting my best friend's baby shower the next morning. We were sent on an hour long bus trip to another airport in Gatwick to sleep in a hotel for 6 hours and then return bus trip back to Heathrow only to fly into an airport which is an hour away from our home as as opposed to 10 minutes. *Not once in all that time did a manager come out and let customers know the cause of the inconvenience. The window service to re-book was haughty and entitled, rather than thoughtful and efficient. I was insulted by the lack of customer service, the shoddy organization, communication and lack common sense. The only saving grace was that they booked us on a different airline for our return flight where we received decent service. We incurred extra charges due to the change in arrival location - all around failure on British Airways. Not happy at all."
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."
Pros: "The flight and in flight service was excellent"
Cons: "the rebooking of this flight was terrible, our seats were re booked from British Airways to American Airlines but not ticketed correctly by BA. I had to call airfare.com support four time with no resolution to only end up running from BA back to AA ticket counters only to be met with multiple BA agents that did not take the time to just lookup our flight info correctly. It took multiple time to finally have a BA ticket agent finally correct the issue. Please dont use Airfare.com their support is the worst."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "It took us over an hour to board. There were 3 lines. 3 attendants. One attendant would leave and we would be left standing there for 20 min. Then they lost my luggage. After 1 day they said they found it in Rome. Each day I would call and they said Rome wasn't sending it. They said they were in India and they couldn't do anything. Finally after 5 days I got it"
