Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew was generally nice and caring."
Cons: "Of course coach seat was not super comfortable. And speaker and screen at my seat did not work."
Pros: "The food was good. The lane was comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was nearly full, and the 767 is a large aircraft. I think it would be preferable if Virgin Atlantic would board the plane by zones, similar to other airlines."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and effiecent. Had weather delays, bag got left, but got it the next day."
Pros: "Crew were great! Neck cushions on chair aren’t adjustable and not comfortable."
Cons: "Media screens are old and miscalibrated. Selection was decent. Food is probably average for the industry which to me is worse than fast food."
Pros: "The roomie seats, the USB port, and in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Child free section"
Cons: "at last minute itinerary was changed.. instead of routing through Brisbane, was now routed through Sydney. Flight from Sydney to LAX was delayed by 4 hours, then missed flight LAX to LAS... overall long delayed arrival. Checked the route through Brisbane, and those flights we're all there, departed and landed all on-time... so wondering what the reason was for the change of the itinerary without a cause (no cancel or delayed flights through Brisbane)"
Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"

Pros: "in flight experience is above average"
Cons: "The computer system really needs a lot of improvement.

Pros: "Did not take the flight in the end"
Cons: "My first leg flight was delayed and I booked through kayak on two different airlines and the first airline did not communicate with the second airline so 5 passengers ran to make the change and arrived 1 min after the jetbridge to get on the plane was pulled away. It was incredible frustrating and could have very easily been avoided with communication from the airlines"
Pros: "Entertainment system worked well. Good choices."
Cons: "Food decent, but not enough fluids offered during flight . Was very dehydrated by end."
Cons: "Seat reclining happens even during meal time and landing! I had to ask crew to get passenger in front to put seat back upright during meal time!!! Crew should've noticed themselves and ask the passenger without my prompting!! So annoyed!! I complained to VA too"
Pros: "comfort, entertainment, food"
Pros: "They were were very kind and helpful to all passengers"
Pros: "Crew was awesome and their service was great. I liked that they put snacks like fruit out to eat during the flight."

Pros: "very incompetent crew carrying out orders for a very cheap airline."
Cons: "There was nothing to like, attendants were rude, seating was horrible, No room, no snacks, counter persons were even worse, tried to contact virgin australia over 12 times for booking confirm and itinerary, no replies ever, none from HQ in Brisbane. Virgin has NO customer service whatsoever, all they want is to take your money online and do nothing for paying customers. "Paying Customer", remember who we are??? The ones that pay for the worst service in the world. Well done Richard Branson!!"
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "The flight from Sydney to LA was enjoyable"
Cons: "I was very disappointed that even though I booked through Virgin Australia when their partner Delta didn't get us to LA on time from Minneapolis, Virgin Australia said its Deltas fault, talk to them. They were not going to help."
Cons: "Boarding process was unorganized. Food was mediocre compared to emirates. Video monitor was poorly designed and limited options on movies and languages. Crew is just average compared to other airlines Online checkin and seating choices were difficult to do and not user friendly"
Pros: "This was my 3rd time to fly to Brisbane, Australia. Love flying with Virgin Australia. They have great service and friendly staff."
Cons: "I brought my own padded seat, but it is a long flight, so it's best to get up and walk around as much as you can."
Pros: "Friendly crew and good food"
Pros: "Everything was great ! The staff very nice and the plane is absolutely amazing .."
Cons: "We paid for extra leg but there was no difference between normal and extra .."
Pros: "Dont whish to comment unless a human being can contact me and help me get the $200 travel voucher I was promised. It was so stressful its the least that can be done"
Cons: "Let's see, my connecting flight was delayed. I missed my Sydney flight so they put me ona flight to Brisbane which was actually pretty great. Then, oh then they lose my bag. Two days later I guess is an appropriate time to then put it on the next flight? What? My bag is 20 pounds, smaller than a standard sized Dachshund. And low and behold they said I can spend up to $50 on necessities. Too kind, virgin Australia, too kind."
Cons: "The cabin was extremely dirty, the food was awful."
Pros: "I loved wine and whiskey. Blanket and blindfolds, headphones helped me sleep. Care packet with toothbrush came in handy."
Cons: "The Sears were tight and thin. I felt pushes from behind. I could not recline the seat enough. I didn't get a window seat, which is my favorite."
Pros: "I liked entertainment options on your phone but at the same time there was nowhere to plug your phone if it ran out of battery."
Cons: "The boarding was good but we did not depart o time which did not cause us to be on time to our destination. It was international flight for almost 4 hours and there was no foodie snacks serve. Only tea or coffee. For a international flight more than 2 hours you should offer something else, soda juices and a snack at the very least. I guess the reason why I am feeling this ways is because I flew with virgin a couple years back to London and was so impressed by he service and the airline and the great quality modern vibe. It was the W hotels of the airlines industry and this time I really want impressed."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was above average and the seats were decent"
Cons: "The attitude of the cabin crew was generally poor; at one point when I returned the post meal rubbish one member of crew commented to another on the lack of wrappers in my rubbish the other crew member replied "maybe he ate it" as this conversation took place directly behind me I assume they thought my headphones were plugged in."
Pros: "We were late arriving at the airport and the checkin desk people were SO nice putting us through. Otherwise we never would have made it on the flight. Also the extra legroom seats were well worth it!"
Pros: "No queues on check in, security nor on arrival. New plane, touch screens, usual abundance of films and food. More drink rounds than last trip. Wifi if you want it."
Cons: "cabin crew very perfunctory. No apology for screen needing resets ( sorry about that would do). Ok but no smiles or personal interaction"
Pros: "The food has improved."
Cons: "Flight turned back after an hour. Held in HK for 24 hours. Dreamliner no big sea change in air transport. Economy still uncomfortable and cramped. Crew give the impression of being bossy and aloof, I saw them making faces behind someone's back. Emirates crew are so much more helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled at the time I was standing in front of the airline counter to check my bag. I was so furious. The airline did not help me at ALL. In fact, they offer me to buy a brand new ticket at a new price!!!!!! I ended up re-bought the ticket from United airline as my husband has United card (chase) and we ended up paying over 1900 for the ticket that should have been about $911. The priceline number is not helping. I have trip insurance but no. nothing worked. I will never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "Great food and movie offerings. On time and courteous staff."
Cons: "Cramped chairs- less leg room than Delta. Also, annoying that buying through Kayak left us without a code to be able to check in online, meaning we were left to be assigned seats at the airport."
Pros: "Everything was great though navigating through the inflight entertainment could have been easier..."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, very clean cabin, very comfortable seats"
Cons: "Food is a joke"
Pros: "The fight had a lot of open seats as I had a whole row to myself! Also the crew was kind."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but it didn’t interfere with my travel plans."
Cons: "Better Communication from Lufthansa"
Cons: "A delay to unload then reload bags, followed by no in-flight communication of connecting flights, led to a missed connection and an overnight hotel stay."
Pros: "I was seated in Row 18 (comfort economy?) and my seat was relatively comfortable. The cabin was clean and pleasant. The crew was friendly, efficient, and professional."
Cons: "My family was seated in the economy section and their seats were extremely uncomfortable. I had the pasta dish for dinner and it was mushy to the point of being inedible."
Pros: "Service is excellent, comfortable seats and space between legs is comfortable even in economy."
Cons: "Yo no pude viajar y no tube ni siquiera una remuneración un empleado de luftansa me dijo que no podía viajar Ali mejor por que no le simpatize y le quedó sin viajar y perdiendo dinero tiempo"
Pros: "for the first time ever, my kid ate the airplane food, and it was because it was good. the service was really good and the staff outstanding."
Cons: "Te cabin pressure gave us headache. always happens with the A380 though."
Pros: "Crew, boarding, seat"
Cons: "Paris airport is extremely passenger unfriendly. Better to connect somewhere else"
Pros: "Crew and flight and service were fine"
Cons: "Economy seats are cramped"
Pros: "Good, friendly crew"
Pros: "on time no hassle"
Cons: "nothing in particular"
Pros: "Great hospitality"
Pros: "Everything was great. Not a single downside. Easy to follow announcements on connection, punctual and nice aircraft."
Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, good selection of in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Crew did not come around very frequently with water throughout flight, mostly only during regular beverage service."
Pros: "Actual flight, staff, food, beverages."
Cons: "Altho I checked in on line in advance, i was unable to print my boarding pass . Lufthansa very little space for check in & luggage at Charles de Gaule and staff advised me to arrive at 4am for 7:45am departure so I could stand in line to get boarding pass and deposit luggage. I did so. Wait was not too long. Security was fast by comparison."
Pros: "Arriving on time."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "The staff was communicative and genuine. The food was decent. Even though the flight arrived late I felt ok about it due to the direct communication of details about the situation. I was stuck in the extremely cramped space of seats just in front of the lavatory making the seat in front me 5 inches from my nose when reclined but the staff was sympathetic offering to ask the passenger in front of me to redress their seat more upright and also allowing me to spread out across two seats to compensate."
Cons: "While the staff compensated for the more than standardly cramped seating arrangement, I think the row of seats just in front of the lavatories should be either better designed or designated not usable. I am only 5’3” and 125lbs but still was faced with a mere 5 inches in front of me when the passenger in front of me reclined his seat. I couldn’t even stand in order to exit the row and had to crawl over the seats to my side. This had me thinking how dangerous this row could be in case of an emergency. Please consider designating these seats either not to be used or optional for passengers."
Pros: "Clean, polite and cheerful staff, good food conveniently offered, on time, decent in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Great service, comfy plane, smooth ride."
Pros: "I love Lufthansa! Great service, comfortable, warm towels before meals served with real silverware. Amazing!"
Cons: "Service! Comfort!!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice. 3 hour trip took 15 hours."
Pros: "Arrived with enough time for me to connect to my international flight."
Cons: "Boarding had no clear order. Had an international connecting flight and by the time I needed to board, there was no room in the overhead and I had to check my luggage. The airline should provide a vegan snack option for customers."
Cons: "I was very irritated and angry about the checking in procedure at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. Lufthansa representatives were extremely slow and inefficient. I already performed the check in online. What is the purpose of online check in if I had to wait in line almost an hour only to drop off my luggage???!! Very unpleasant experience."
Cons: "The boarding area was cramped."
Pros: "Still thinking about it."
Cons: "I didn't like that there was no organization. People just flooded the gate like animals.."
Pros: "Crew attention"
Cons: "Expect to pay $85 euro for a carry on bag that they will ask you to check in. This is our returning trip with the same set of bags for the round trip to Paris. At the gate we were asked to check in the other carry on bag which we bought right before the trip making sure it fit the new small size req. Still that was put into check-in. We ended up with no carry on luggages with us boarded. Only to find quite a lot of bags that are much bigger than ours were allowed to be in the cabin."
Pros: "I was sleep the whole time"
Cons: "It was okay"
Pros: "Food was great. Good movies. Friendly staff!"
Cons: "The television screens were very old and discolored."
Pros: "Crew were all super polite and friendly"
Pros: "Water bottle when we arrived at our seat."
Cons: "Paying 8 euros for premium movies AND if you wanted earphones (I had my own), you would need to pay 2 euros more. Excessive. Choice of movies was rather limited even in premium. In regular, it was quasi non-existent (2)."
Pros: "Smooth flight. No delay, no unpleasant surprise."
Pros: "On my going flight MSP to Frankfurt, I had a normal seat and as a tall person, it was miserable. The seats were so tight I had to have my legs in the aisle and constantly stand just to make it. On the return I was given an exit row and it was quite nice."
Cons: "Condor is a reduced price airline so I was not expecting a large amount of entertainment. But only two free movies was a little bit extreme. The music selection was good."
Cons: "The boarding process takes too long as people try to take too many things"
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked."
Cons: "The snack provided was totally insufficient. the check-in staff were stringent about luggage size and weight even when the flight was not full."
Pros: "Loved the little sandwiches!"
Cons: "The check-in process in Paris was frustrating and slow. The boarding process was also a bit chaotic."
Cons: "Great customer service!"
Pros: "The flight was short and well organized, boarding relatively efficient, snack was just OK, service was nice and crew was very accommodating and seemed happy. Mobile boarding options worked well."
Cons: "Snack could be better."
Cons: "Old plane. Bad food. Small seats. Obsolete entertainment system. Hate United!"
Pros: "On time, nice staff"
Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Boarding process was unclear."
Pros: "Food was pretty darn good, and the crew was very generous with drinks."
Cons: "There was some metal box by my left foot that restricted my leg room even more than usual. But I'm not sure if there was anything that could have been done about that."
Pros: "We were delayed but better that than bump around in a thunderstorm. Food good"
Cons: "Would like to see more selection in movies"
Pros: "The leg room was definitely more than on a US flight, which I gravely appreciated."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic -- no rhyme or reason . Pasta dish and chicken dish were both low quality."
Cons: "It would have been nice to know if each meal contained cheese, as oposed to just general "chicken and rice" and "noodles with marinara and cheese" It turned ut the rice was in a cheese sauce, and i could not eat it, and could also not eat the alternate option. Please think about giving out a detailed list of ingredients for the in flight meals so we can make more informed choices when we have food restrictions!"
Pros: "All the services were great."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "I like the crew and their service, the food was amazing speacially the vanilla cheese cake desert was on point, loved it. I loved the “my flight “interaction on the screen and the different view of the plane, cockpit view, left, right etc.. amazing feature."
Cons: "The seat could have been much better as far as reclining and space. Overall I loved the flight."
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: "The crew was great"
Cons: "1-2 +cms leg space"
Cons: "Seat recline was broken- wouldn’t hold position."
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Had to use a shoe horn to get into and out of my seat and I'm not a large guy. But really my harsh criticism comes from the loss of my girlfriends luggage. It was left behind in Paris on our way to Casablanca causing us to waste a day in Casablanca traveling back to the airport the grab the bag the next day. And to add injury to insult her bag was left behind in JFK during our transfer for our flight to Seattle. No big deal right, Delta will deliver the bag to our house the next day, wrong, we were told we have to go to the airport ourselves to get the bag."
Cons: "Kayak updated me that my flight would be late. It wasn't. Missed it had to pay $700"
Pros: "Crew was attentive. Timings were spot on."
Cons: "Virtually no information at boarding which made everybody just make a huge line. Boarding they a bus, it was raining and we got wet."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "No wifi on a 9 hour flight. Takes a long time to get another round of coffee."
Pros: "Crew was good, seat was not, it was freezing cold and one little blanket was inadequate!"
Cons: "Provide another blanket when needed, was wearing shorts and a short sleeve shirt."
Cons: "CDG airport in Paris is a very inefficient and by far the slowest airport. I recommend other passengers to get to the airport at least 4 hours before their departure."
Pros: "Great crews, excellent customer service"
Pros: "Crew very professional"
Cons: "Boarding was a little confusing"
Pros: "Crew great."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was excellent"
Pros: "The cue lines per zone are a brilliant idea!"
Cons: "An explanation to passengers as to why there was a backup between the gate and the plane."
Cons: "Check in process running smoothly and better announcement of gate change"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and always came around with water."
Cons: "The “vegetarian” option was tuna which isn’t vegetarian and there was no vegetarian snack. With the hundreds of dietary and religious food restrictions you would think having a vegetarian option would be much more attainable.. They also didn’t make an announcement about our flight being late."
Pros: "Crew and food were great."
Cons: "Old plane. Seats were super tiny and uncomfortable. Couldn’t sit in the same spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore."
Pros: "Intranet meant I could watch movies on my iPad"
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable"
Cons: "They lost my luggage :("
Cons: "Engine noise in the cabin is loud."
Cons: "My entire travel experience became extremely rushed and chaotic due to my flight being canceled and me being alerted -LESS THAN AN HOUR BEFORE IT TOOK OFF! This is unacceptable."
Pros: "Efficient and smooth flight. Service was great and flight attendants were friendly"
Pros: "Very nice stews. Food was A plus compared to US airlines AND included. Great list of movies etc."
Pros: "Food and wine was very good. Music selection was excellent."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."
Cons: "Plane left more than 40 minutes late with no explanation or apology."
Pros: "Very good male crew member. Pilot genuinely apologetic for the delay."
Cons: "After running due to a 1 hr 10 min change over between flights boarding didn't prioritise anyone but I got on fine. Only to be told at the departure time that there was a problem with the baggage hold and we were delayed. In total 50 minutes late leaving. Breakfast a simple brioche with nothing to add to it."
Cons: "Canceled flight—absolutely no notification. Convoluted rebooking in whcuhbhey lies to us about what flights we were actually on. Spent a couple hours at Delta rebooking our trip. Lost prepaid night at hotel and dinner eaecatuon plus day of vacation."
Pros: "La entrada"
Cons: "El resto de cosas"
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The room between seats is unbearable."
Pros: "Punctual, great food in Premium Economy, friendly crew."
Cons: "Took over 75 minutes (after arrival) for baggage to arrive on the carousel. Boarding area did not have well-defined lanes for different groups."
Pros: "Cabin crew very friendly and caring."
Cons: "Airport services and lounge are OK."
Pros: "Good service all around, personnel pleasant"
Cons: "Very difficult to find where to register with the flight but this is more tied to the way things are run by the airport"
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."
Pros: "No delays, service with a smile"
Cons: "Nothing to report."
Pros: "Flight went smoothly"
Cons: "Flight left late The seats are small and crowded There are no entertainment options"
Pros: "leg space in plane"
Pros: "Service was much better than on the flight from MIA to CDG 3 weeks before - that was very poor. Entertainment was excellent - great selection of movies. Premium Economy was definitely worth the upgrade cost."
Cons: "Boarding was a complete debacle - no control over who went where. Sky Priority line was full of 50 people who weren't Sky Priority, and there was only one person checking passports. The two people at the desk didn't care when I noted this. We were called to the desk in advance of boarding to check passport information. When we got to the check in line, we were taken aside for more passport checking, even though we are US citizens with Trusted Traveler status in the GOES program. We were one of the first people at the departure lounge, and one of the the last to board."
Pros: "Loved the movie selection and the food was good too."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. Every time there's an announcement, it interrupts the movies and some of the announcements were completely unnecessary and there were so many of them, it was like constant interruptions, really annoying."
Cons: "Delay over an hour"
Pros: "I had a choice of movies, games and music that was very appealing. My concerns about not receiving the correct meal was handled professionally and promptly during the flight. I was surprised they couldn't discover I only ordered it for the second leg of my flight."
Cons: "Being placed into a window seat at 6' 5". Although I opted for general seating rather than paying for a extra leg room which is out of my budget. Not getting an aisle seat was disturbing at my height. Then there was the guy in front of me not willing to forego putting his seat back on my knees for over half the flight. It would be nice if the seat assignments for general boarding considered the height of the person being assigned."
Cons: "No entertainment or usb plugsto charge."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Not enough room for legs. Small amounts of food. No entertainment."
Pros: "It was a fine flight"
Cons: "no specific feedback"
Pros: "You get everything you would expect in this kind of flight in term of meals, comfort and entertainment."
Cons: "The flight left half an hour late because of weather conditions. But it is more an airport issue rather than an airline one."
Pros: "Crew members were nice and polite."
Cons: "The plane was so old, it's like they bought it at a junk yard. The seats were falling apart and were very uncomfortable. Entertainment system is the same age as a VCR. Food was so bad I actually threw up (first time for me ever; I can eat pretty much anything and no problems). Given other compatibility priced options, I won't fly AirFrance again."
Cons: "Touch screens"
Pros: "Complimentary entertainment"
Cons: "Major delays"
Pros: "Glad we made it back."
Cons: "Flight could have been on time. Attendants in the airline could have communicated much better to give update on delay, but they did not give any information despite several times getting up to ask questions at the main check-in. Many of the passengers were very discouraged. Plane left nearly 2 hours late due to an unclear maintenance issue, paperwork and also no fuel put in the plane until all passengers we on board."
Pros: "Crew and service was solid given the covid restrictions."
Cons: "Great flight"
Cons: "Had to change our plans, and AA wouldn't give us a refund. We never got on the plane but had to pay for the tickets anyway. I'll never fly AA again."
Pros: "The was plenty of leg room."
Cons: "One flight attendant was pretty unfriendly."
Pros: "I was there on time .."
Cons: "Save seats for your mistakes and compensation for my time and missed reservation.."
Cons: "Make seat available for two of us together not every one in a deferent row"
Pros: "Only the food on this trip was good. Everything else had issues."
Cons: "Poorly organized boarding at Miami. Agent did NOT speak clearly. Uncomfortable long walk outside uphill ramps and steps to board on the a tarmac. Purser’s PA system only worked occasionally. Most communications relayed from rear. My first class seat in row 3 was broken partially reclined."
Pros: "The staff on board were excellent, very professional and efficient. Despite the fact we left an hour late, we arrived nearly on time, so kudos to the pilots!"
Cons: "We were delayed but didn’t get any updates from AA staff about new boarding times or gates. The WiFi onboard did not work; we could could connect to it but kept getting “Network Not Available” messages."
Pros: "Everything was great on the AA flight"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "VERY cramped"
Pros: "Must wider seats on this aircraft"
Cons: "Inflight monitor broken"
Pros: "Aircraft was comfortable and spacious"
Cons: "It was super cold, not even with 2 blankets made it"
Pros: "The flight crew was attentive, and the "at your fingertip" entertainment options helped distract me from the restlessness I got on my 8 hour flight from London."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Pros: "Nice crew Good landing and no uncomfortable turbulence"
Cons: "No entertainment on an almost 6 hour flight Flight delayed and crew served water/drinks at least 2 hours in"
Pros: "Easy boarding crew were friendly food was hot"
Cons: "Seating was a pain to try and get 2 seats together even though I booked it months in advance very noisy rude people couldn't sleep on a supposed overnight am exhausted"
Pros: "Staff at departure gate desk were great at announcing changes and relaying info regarding the delayed flight. Drinks were offerred although the flight was short. Flight attendants were friendly. My checked luggage arrived early and I was notified so I didn't have to wait."
Cons: "Flight was delayed."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew"
Cons: "Not much room to move around for such a big trip"
Pros: "In flight service was good and the meal was tasty and complete. Fun entertainment."
Cons: "Rude check in staff that priortized customers that arrived too late to the airport which made us late for our flight. A customed shouldn't have to stand in line an for 90 minutes just to drop off checked bags after checking in online. Every customer should start at the back of the line. All of Ecuadorians in the Guayaquil airport for Avianca should be replaced."
Pros: "The employee who checked me in was very helpful - found my frequent flyer number for another airline and give me a free checked bag."
Cons: "Great trip"
Pros: "Just flying AA excellent flight"
Cons: "No wifi. Pay only"
Pros: "Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "Everything was as expected. 1 star on entertainment as there was none. Would have liked to have been able to get 3 seats together without extra charges."
Cons: "They misplaced my luggage and it did not arrive in Boston"
Pros: "I appreciated the interactive screen on the backseat, which provided me entertainment watching Doctor Who and playing Angry Birds. I also liked that the power outlet to charge my phone was more accessible on the backseat instead of below my seat, which is normally where I find it."
Cons: "I did not appreciate that there was a device mounted below 2 of the 3 backseats in my row. Those devices cut into at least a few inches of valuable room to store a carry-on bag. At worst, I've seen 1 seat have such a device, so it was quite disappointing to see 2 seats with them, including mine."
Pros: "The flight attendants were helpful and friendly. Short flight, so seats were good."
Cons: "Food options are generally not good on American Airlines flights. This has been a beef of mine."
Cons: "The entire flight. Bumbing, disabled seating was not provided as promised, neither was off boarding to baggage area."
Pros: "Crew fantastic , food good"
Cons: "Limited seat space"
Cons: "The first plane was broken and the pilot kept coming to brief the passwngers that it was broken but it may be fixed and so on, it would have been better if he had just let the counter clerk say the plane is delayed due to maintenance. As a customer, i dont need all the rambling explanation every ten minutes about the issue. I was told that we could board another flight leaving in 30 minutes, so i went to that gate, crew was not there and we boarded the plane. We had to de- board and wait for the crew. After the crew showed up, the rest of the flight was pretty standard."
Cons: "I hated the waiting area at Pearson. I hated the temperature and how tiny the seats are. Was so hot and absolutely miserable."
Cons: "My seat was considered "Premium." The pull out table was dirty and broken. Was not able to use it for eating or holding a drink. Food was inedible. Plane was old so there were a few screens for the whole cabin. The screen was poorly located so unable to watch programs offered."
Cons: "I arrived at the airport and my flight was cancelled. I waited in lines for over three hours and was to finally able to book a flight with United. American Airlines refused to give me any explanation why the flight was cancelled."
Pros: "My flight was very good and I had no issues.I was very surprised how smooth everything went and I will be use kayak again."
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike.I will use kayak again I know that much"
Pros: "Trip on time"
Pros: "The beauty that is Oregon."
Cons: "The fact that AA had an issue with THEIR plane which caused me to miss an already booked connecting flight. I ended up spending SEVEN hours in Phoenix waiting for a different flight to take me back to Tampa. The least AA could do is offer to pay for my supper or even a snack ANYTHING would've been nice. It's called customer service. I understand things happen that are out of our control, I also understand what it is to help make people whole or happy."
Cons: "Wifi was not working in the airplane unfortunately. You could connect to it but it was not working at all for anybody '"
Pros: "For tall people more room for the legs"
Cons: "The Seats aré very near"
Pros: "Delayed 2 hours out of charlotte. Missed flight to Madrid. Newark people are rude"
Cons: "Look above"
Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"
Cons: "On my flight from San Jose to Arizona there were no t.v , so it made for a painful five hour flight."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled and I never got an email notification so they made me fly to New York and the flight was delay. One of the ladies from New York was really rude to me."
Pros: "Our flight had a veteran who had received the Medal of Honor and the pilot and attendants took a moment to recognize him and it was sooo special and meaningful for American Airlines to take the time to thank this awesome individual!!! Thank you!!"
Cons: "The fact that people carry-on luggage that exceeds the max requirements for carry on luggage so they can avoid the checked luggage fee. It's a disgrace. It time to live by your rules, the same for everyone. I had to be rebooked out a different airport as PGV was flooded. I was seated in 21F which does not recline. AA cancelled my flight out of PGV, a better seat would have been nice since I had to drive an hour to EWN whereas I was staying only 10 mins from PGV."
Cons: "seating was very uncomfortable crew was extremely rude no entertainment at all for the 5 hours flight"
Pros: "Efficient checkin. Left on time."
Cons: "It is disgraceful flying such a tight configuration on a transatlantic flight. AA should be ashamed."
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "Being charged for everything. Wifi was free for my sister on Delta."
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice and helpful"
Cons: "First of all flight was delayed an hour and a half.. Then I went to get something to eat to kill time just to find out they switched the gate causing me to have to run all the way to the new gate then they close the door as I was walking up and told me I missed my flight even though the plane was still there for another 15 minutes.. so I had to fly standby on the next flight which was another hour and a half later.. I arrived at the airport at 12:30 and didn't end up catching a flight until 7:45 p.m.... oh and I forgot to mention that I originally paid for an upgrade for priority seating with more legroom that I never received because they put me on the very last seat that you can't even replying because there is a wall behind you.. SMH"
Pros: "Efficient. Got to destination on time."
Cons: "My tv screen was not working. I asked four times to see if it could be fixed. Crew could have cared less. Crew seemed a bit rude overall."
Pros: "One crew member was very funny and helpful which unfortunately we forgot his name but he looks like Oscar from the Office if that helps. He was awesome! And the food was pretty good too."
Cons: "James. One of the crew members on our flight he was extremely rude and had no interest in helping you with putting your carry on away and if you have to put any effort he automatically says "you have to check this in" luckily my boyfriend got up and arrange the baggages easily and done. James was obnoxious, rude, and very unfriendly. The entertainment was absolutely terrible. It was a 10 hour flight the movie choices were slim to none. When I took a flight from New York to China and rode United Airlines we had every movie selection imaginable."
Cons: "Curt and rude"
Pros: "Quality of food served on Paris to Toronto leg was superior to the Toronto to Paris leg"
Cons: "Having to take a bus out to the tarmac and climb stairs on boarding."
Pros: "Seated near front. On time."
Cons: "Entertainment system had small touch screen that didn't respond to touch. Food was fair to poor. No leg room."
Cons: "In 25 years of traveling I think this is the worst food I ever had in a airplane. Lucky that the butter and the bread were eatable"
Pros: "Space for my legs, good movies and food. Smooth ride. It was my first trip with the airline and i loved it"
Cons: "Had to wait 1 hour to get my bag back. They were having trouble to find it. Because i waited an hour they gave me a $10 voucher to eat at the airport"
Pros: "They did a good job and I enjoyed their touch screen entertainment on the flight. I enjoyed the wine on the flight over and back. I will fly Air Canada again"
Cons: "Nothing, they did a good job"
Pros: "The entertainment options were good and the fight crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The delays and lack of information in the boarding process are unacceptable - this occurred on my trip from Montreal to Paris as we as the return trip. Passengers feel like cattle being herded."
Pros: "Entertainment system had good offers."
Cons: "Queuing in CDG was inefficient as was much of the airport experience at all sites (outside of PHL)."
Cons: "no luggage"
Pros: "Air Canada is great"
Pros: "flight was smooth"
Cons: "We basically were left without info about connecting flight! Also priority boarding for passengers with kids should be announced. It's not the job of passengers to ask. Crew could use more friendliness and being more helpful in giving directions especially in flight and for connections. The lady that checked us in was the worst. We gave her boarding passes and passport and after checking she gave them back to me in a disorganized way, I had a toddler and I had to stop and arrange my documents first. She did not even indicate where to keep the strollers. All she cared was to see d face of my toddler, in my effort to get d child up from stroller and turn her around to her, she fell and guess what, this lady did not even react! Unflinching, she just wanted to check d face of my 3 year old in case she is impersonating. That being said, some other staff were very friendly so this is not generalizing all to be same way"
Pros: "The food, wine and service were all great."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very professional and nice."
Cons: "The flight took off late and did not make up the lost time during the flight."
Pros: "Food and movies were good"
Cons: "I received a boarding pass in AMD for all my flights, when at the gate in paris the agent said we have to give you a new boarding pass and seat. I had window prior, now it was the MIDDLE SEAT!!!! They said they couldnt do anything about it because Air India changed it and they couldnt do anything about it. Especially since the flight was also full. Not Air Canada's fault, but the expererince of middle seat is TERRIBLE."
Pros: "Drop off at the counter was fast and easy on the upper level departure entrance. From my drop off at 9:00 am, I made it thru baggage check-in, passing thru passport control, passing thru security and into the gate duty free area in 25 mins! Impressive experience."
Cons: "With an hour delay out of Paris due to waiting for missing aircraft flight documents to be completed and delivered to the airplane on the holding ramp, we ended up arriving in Toronto an hour late. With only an original connection time of 90 minutes, it was not possible for me to make it thru Canadian and US customs to the connection gate. I was to learn that no other connection to a Kansas City was available until much later in the afternoon / early evening. As a result, I ended up arriving in Kansas City 6 (six) hours later than originally scheduled, three quarters of the time it took to travel from Paris to Toronto. To say the least , I was not at all thrilled having lost that time."
Pros: "Nice plane, food, staff, entertainment. It was great"
Cons: "We were delayed taking off. We boarded on time but then had to sit and wait in the plane for almost an hour before taking off. We had a connecting flight in Toronto and thankfully made it but some people missed their flights."
Pros: "Service and comfort. Friendly and responsive staff"
Pros: "The food is pretty good on Air Canada."
Cons: "Please communicate clearly to Paris travelers that Lufthansa in Paris only flies to places in Germany and that any other Lufthansa flight is basically an Air Canada flight. I went to the wrong terminal, terminal 1 to check in with Lufthansa. With the language barrier I had difficulty learning that I actually had to be in terminal 2a to check in with Air Canada."
Cons: "We missed our flight to Minnepolis we got a later flight home. We were tired and disappointed about getting home late. When we got to the gate our plane was still there but they said it was too late to get on but they delayed the plane 10 minutes to take our luggage off. We got a later flight. Not happy."
Pros: "They had individual tv screens."
Cons: "One of the female flight attendants was rude. Aircraft configuration was tight and dirty."
Pros: "Both planes were nice. Attendants were pleasant. Food and entertaining were great."
Cons: "Flight from Paris to Toronto was delayed 4 hours. That automatically caused us to miss our connecting flight from Toronto to Nashville. The 1st flight turned out to be more than 4 hours late. The 2nd flight was delayed as well. Not to mention we were directed many places throughout the Toronto airport trying to locate a boarding pass for the 2nd flight in hopes to make it to Nashville that day. All members of the Air Canada staff were helpful, however traveling for over 20 hours majority of which was spent in foreign airports made for a long and unpleasant day. It would have been different had it been our fault for being late or missing a flight, but we were very early for our international flights which simply added to the amount of time we had to sit, wait, and hope. A coupon was given to us, however being that I live in a different country I don't know how quick I will be able to redeem this."
Pros: "The plain was new"
Cons: "I asked for a blanket and they told me that they are out of blankets"
Cons: "By the time the food arrived at our seats the protein version was no longer available. This happened on the flight to Paris as well. A customer complained about a small child and the child and parent were moved to behind my seat. After an hour of the toddler kicking my seat I asked to be moved to any other seat on the plane. Was told too bad, nothing they could do. Spent the 8 hour flight being kicked and listening to yelling."
Pros: "Please post meal intentions on-line so I can plan for the possible need to bring food on board. I had repeated instances when my elbow would hit the buttons on the arm rest, thereby changing video/lights/call for help, etc. Poor ergonometric placement."
Cons: "Delayed over an hour, making it almost impossible to catch our connecting flight in Montreal. Thankfully, the flight out of Montreal was delayed and we were able to make the flight by the very last minute."
Cons: "It was late by an hour and I missed my connection. My flight on the way out we sat on the plane an hour and a half. Once the connection was missed they didn't handle things smoothly at all. I could write a book but it will just get me worked up again."
Pros: "Flight from Paris to Montreal was very nicexcited with comfortable seats, entertainment, and pillows"
Cons: "Going through customs in canada and the US due to 2 flights in canada."
Pros: "Food was much better than I've had on a plane in years"
Cons: "touch screen was very finicky"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight due to late take off from Paris and long wait at customs in Montreal."
Pros: "International flights were Excellent. Competent personnel, good food, comfortable seating."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The food and the seats were cramp"
Pros: "The crew and wonderful, and it's why i chose Air Canada -- i have flown with them a few times over the years and have never had a bad experience during the flight. they are always pleasant! Kudos to them."
Cons: "At Paris, I was given the boarding passes that went with my original itinerary even tho the flight had already been changed. they told me my bag was checked through to dulles --hindsight is 20/20. if only i hadn't checked the bag. I don't think coach seats should be 'reclinable' -- the space is much too small. it's rude to do so in such cramped quarters and there's always one rude person. she happened to sit in front of me and never put her seat up the entire flight."
Pros: "The flight was delayed long enough that I missed the connection flight but they put me on the earlier flight so I did make the connection"
Pros: "The movie selection and the food was great! The crew was friendly and helpful. The pillows and blanket provided made for a little bit more comfort."
Cons: "The lack of space in the cabin was very uncomfortable. Being arm in arm with strangers is not my idea of a great flight. Flights lasting over 4 hours should really be courteous to those on board."
Pros: "It was a good flight overall."
Pros: "Food was reasonably good, and seat had enough legroom, more than in some airlines I have flown recently."
Cons: "very disorganized. website for checkin was indecipherable. I had to call Air Canada, which charged me for the call (15 centimes per minute) then put me on hold, only to finally learn that I could only check in in person because we were traveling with a pet. --- We paid extra for preferential seating, and when we got to the counter were told that we could not have those seats bcs we were traveling with a pet - the pet was acknowledged on our records and travel documents, yet the company allowed us to sign up for preferential seating, then would not let us access those seats, but our previously reserved window seats were gone and we were assigned aisle and center seats, which were then changed again to other aisle and center seats. --- Half the flights on the departure board, including ours, were delayed, alhto there were no weather problems. Both our plane and the plane in the gate next to where we were waiting had mechanical problems - a coincidence, or a repeated failing?"
Pros: "Entertainment system was awesome. Flight was comfortable. Crew very friendly."
Cons: "Checkin staff at airport was not friendly. Airline cannot allocate seats together even though booking was done months in advance. seriously!!!"
Pros: "The movie selection was relatively good."
Cons: "They changed my seat 3 times before I got on the plane (from a window seat to an aisle seat and much farther back on the plane). I didn't complain and got on the plane, only to be told for a forth time (after I had already settled in my seat) that I had to change my seat again, to a middle seat. It was by far the least comfortable seat I have sat in with very little room both in front of and next to me. Nobody should be asked to move like that, especially after choosing my seat online at least three months prior to the flight when I purchased my ticket. Food also not great."
Pros: "I liked the comfortable airplane. The bathroom we used by the front of the cabin was a great size bathroom. Food was OK but could have been better."
Cons: "I upgraded the seats for me and my 9 year old daughter to economy premium for about $300 per seat. You would think they would give you two seats together considering you are flying with a minor. Nope! The seats were on different side of the isle and they had a seat between. One of the flight attendants was gonna accommodate us to be seated next to each other on the side with two seats only and my daughter was happy to be next to me. Another flight attendant comes after us and moves us to the middle where are 4 seats between the isles. I would recommend to ask what seats you are getting before boarding. I had picked two seats next to each other but in the meantime they sold the window seat to somebody else and moved me one seat away from my 9 year old daughter plus an isle between us. Will NEVER fly them again. I felt very uncomfortable and honestly like criminal while waiting for them to decide about my seating arrangements after paying additional $600 on the top of the regular fare. This was a flight from Paris to Montreal."
Cons: "I understand that it is the duty of the traveller to figure out the legalities but a little heads up about visa requirements would be nice. I did know I needed a document to transit Canada but their website is absolutely not straight forward in telling you what you need to do. I read there was an exempt till September 2016 and since I was flying before it, I thought I would be fine. While I understand it was my fault for not doing my research, it's the way the airline company handled the situation that incredibly frustrated me. There is no empathy or willingness to help a traveler about to embark on their journey, when they are told they can't board. I didn't know you needed a visa just to transit!! It's just stone cold responses and haughtiness. It's a new rule, cut me some slack! They just pushed me off to a partner airline and I was asked to pay 1500$ for a one way flight. I m getting very frustrated with airlines of late! Customer service sucks. There is no genuine empathy for a person in a bind. It's all about making money and getting you out of the line. I'm just disappointed."
Pros: "Cabin crews and the actual flight was an alright experience, it was the personnel on the ground."
Cons: "Lack of personnel in cdg for checking bags & rude personnel on the ground."
Pros: "Everything was professional. The pilots was awesome"
Pros: "Leg room was great"
Cons: "I was given someones special meal without knowing then the crew member kept saying to the girl behind me "I think she took it". I was embarrassed to be honest. The girl behind me ended up not eating her last meal because of this mistake lol"
Pros: "Food was fine, staff was professional, flight was quite."
Cons: "The lavatories were unacceptably filthy. There was a puddle on the floor in one of them: Disgusting!"
Pros: "The ease of boarding"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "All services and most of all excellent customer services."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was excellent and the liquor selection exceeded expectation. Very smooth flight."
Cons: "Didn't give us US customs forms, had to ask, only got one, had to ask again, and then rushed to fill them out and THEN customs threw them out and we had to do everything on the computer. I would think that the crew would be familiar with this process at their home airport and not waste our time. Also, no one could tell us if we would have to go through security again and if we could buy any liquids in Paris duty free to bring home due to the liquid rule and going through security. Just a wildly uninformed airline (asked our crew and other AC officials) they couldn't answer a few simple questions."
Pros: "Crew was good , space was fine"
Cons: "No wifi ?! I couldn't believe you can't buy wifi for the flight ..,"
Pros: "All in all, everything was very good. But the service was great. I is very nice to be treated as customers v cattle."
