Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me.

Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Cons: "Only one queue for boarding. Flight late on arrival."
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"

Pros: "quick boarding, responsive Airline stewardess, very polite."
Cons: "temperature control was not good, service was fine, seats were not comfortable. plane need to be cleaner."

Cons: "Boarding unorganized, but that may have been more of a passenger issue then KLM"

Pros: "Thanks Jennifer, my flight attendant"
Cons: "Under the current health emergency the whole crew went above and beyond. Thank you!"

Cons: "Flight was cancelled for no reason."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and quick with service."
Cons: "There was no in-flight entertainment! This is ridiculous for an overnight, international flight."
Pros: "The ground crew were very courteous but I feel they were not being completely honest regarding the delays. It felt like we were being given false hope that the flight was taking off soon."

Pros: "The flight crew were very friendlly and accommodating. The landing in Paris was the smoothest I've ever had."

Cons: "It was really GOOD overall."
Cons: "the entertainment on the app didn’t work. and there was no seat back tv things. there was a movie playing in the aisle of the airplane. there was no way to charge any devices while our domestic flight had the tvs on the back of the seats and international plugs for every seat"
Cons: "Red-booked from cancelled flight. On this leg they neglected to give me a boarding pass on app and gate agent was irtitated that I didnt have one. On flight; fidgety person in front of mr was in annoyingly squeaky chair. I was told I could not switch seats because of weight balance (I'm 135 lbs)."

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable and the staff was friendly"
Cons: "The flight was delayed in arrival to Chicago, so we were delayed in departure."
Cons: "They charge for coffee."
Pros: "The staff was fantastic"
Cons: "Well my flight got delayed four separate times. I was stuck in LAX for 3 hours. So much that booked another flight with another airline for the following morning. I had to book a hotel nearby LAX just so I could somewhere to sleep for the night. My luggage made it to Chicago safely, but I didn’t at least not with American Airlines. It took them an hour to tell us that they reassigned the pilot to another flight, not only that when it was delayed the first initial time (40 minute delay) about ten minutes before we were supposed to board they tell us that the flight attendant crew is going to take 30 minutes to get to the gate. Not only but those poor airline service staff were completely unaware of all these changes! They had to find out from the passengers what was going on. Honestly I will never fly with American Airlines ever again!!!"
Cons: "Unexpected extra charge for checked bag. We only had one each but paid $100! We booked 6 of us and 4 didn’t pay but my husband and I did. Don’t understand!"
Cons: "That I had to take multiple plans when I wanted a one time stop"
Cons: "Our honeymoon started off with American airlines delaying us by 3 hours in Miami causing us to miss our flight to Iceland and now we are stuck in Dallas paying out of pocket for everything because American does not reimburse anything. Just brutal."
Cons: "Gluten free meal not provided as requested. Entertainment totally lacking."
Pros: "Despite getting no updates, our flight itinerary was changed from a 3.30pm flight to a 9.20pm flight. Unfortunately this was after landing from Milan at 1.30 with two small children so we had already had a very long day. We absolutely never would have booked this flight itinerary had we known of the change."
Cons: "I am beyond stunned that our flight itinerary was changed from 3.30pm to 9.20pm with no notification. This is absolutely unreasonable and inexcusable made even worse that we had already had a very long journey from Milan to JFK with two small children. Evidently the issue was that we booked via a 3rd party off the kayak site and not directly with British airways. When American airways changed the flight from 3.30 to 3.25, the 3rd party company failed to file for our updated itinerary so British air/American air bumped us to the next flight at 9.20pm. We have long been loyal to kayak feeling it provides the best breadth of options and good pricing. Now we may use kayak to see all the options but I can’t booking directly with kayak anymore after this complete disaster. We ended up renting a car and driving from jfk to Boston, getting home 23 hours after our journey had started, stressed, beyond exhausted and now have to return the rental car. Thanks kayak."
Cons: "Poor service"
Pros: "They offered us a little scoop of ice cream."
Cons: "My video screen was busted. Long 9 hrs without anything to watch. Food was cold (as in not reheated after being frozen). Landed at PHL and sat at the gate for 45 min before deplaning, which made us miss our connection. Apparently there’s NO other gate to deplane from than the one they picked. Ridiculous."
Pros: "The seats were comfy and spacious."
Cons: "Mechanical problems deejays the flight and I missed my connection. Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Liked the crew. The flight was on time and went as expected. We are safe and happy so can’t get much better right?"
Cons: "Didn’t like the credit card advertising announcement over the intercom and then again by the crew. The lack of food and snack options was pretty sad but that’s par for the course nowadays. One of my pet peeves: People boarded with out verification of their boarding pass location. By the time we boarded, 90% of the plane was loaded and we were in the middle. Luckily that had no impact but annoying bc people are trying to get their overhead bins before they run out, which they did."
Cons: "Bag was delayed and damaged"
Pros: "I liked having the built in screen on the a321. Americans streaming service has lots to offer but the built in screens have more choices. I get why they want to just offer the streaming but I appreciate all the choices! There was a group number enforcer at the gate to make boarding more organized! She was polite but told the mobs that try to use the premium line to wait their turn."
Cons: "I asked for upgrades to and from Chicago. I’m a gold member and fly for leisure fairly often. There are so many people looking for an upgrade these days that you’re rarely getting the opportunity"
Pros: "Boarding moved along well, even though there wasn’t special boarding for families with young children. The plane was really comfortable (new 2x2) and the staff was really friendly."
Pros: "The flight left on time. Pleasant crew."
Cons: "As usual, the seats for a 6'4" guy are not good."
Cons: "one staff member was extremely rude when asked for another beverage."
Cons: "Wait time to board was delayed 20 minutes."
Cons: "Poor entertainment, wifi option. Overhead lighting was on entire flight. AA flight attendants were over it. A bad experience"
Pros: "Pilot did good job in tricky conditions at landing."
Cons: "Wish food were served."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy gate agents were awesome."
Cons: "Older plane. Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "No onboard entertainment"
Pros: "I understand that the breakfast cookies are economical, and many people enjoy them, but can we add some variety or switch things up sometime, pleeeeease. My kids love the cookies. thanks Jesse"
Cons: "The cookies"
Pros: "No complaints. Keep up the good work, American!"
Cons: "I don't like the fact that food has to be purchased. I liked it much better when the food was included in the price, as it still lives in the major international overseas airlines."
Cons: "There was no entertainment option available in the plane we flew in."
Pros: "The free movies and plug in phone charger ..."
Cons: "No problems or worries from me"
Pros: "We made it home safely"
Cons: "Service and comfort are very poor."
Pros: "Not a full flight able to stretch out and crew friendly"
Cons: "The plane was dirty, crumbs and stains on seats. Unfortunately no individual entertainment screens with limited offerings overhead makes for a long transatlantic flight but would fly again for the price."
Pros: "Good service, good snacks/lunch"
Cons: "Really old plane,9 hour flight should be something newer and nicer"
Pros: "Everything was perfect."
