Pros: "extra leg room was great"
Pros: "I was recently on flight CI054 from Auckland to Taipei, with a short layover in Brisbane (my final destination was Incheon, South Korea. Due to fog in Brisbane, the flight was diverted to Gold Coast. After arriving in Gold Coast we had to take a bus to Brisbane. It's kind of a long story, but basically I will say it was handled well for the most part my China airlines. Certainly, fog was not there fault and they did everything they could to accommodate passengers, including putting us up in two very nice hotels."
Cons: "The one complaint I have is when disembarking the plane in Gold Coast, there was no China Airlines personnel to be found anywhere. Nobody on the plane knew what we were doing - who was supposed to get on the bus and who was supposed to stay. The Australian immigration authorities and Gold Coast airport staff took control, but again, China Airlines staff had completely disappeared. Nobody was there to tell us whether we should collect our luggage, how to get an appropriate visa to enter Australia, where to go to get on the bus (or even if we SHOULD get on the bus). I was really frustrated at the point, but other than that, I would say they handled it quite well"
Pros: "Plane did not have vents, it was about 80 in the plane too hot. When it was mentioned, crew could do nothing about it"

Pros: "Boarding was very organized, service was excellent, plane was clean"
Pros: "I have flown with many airlines and Korean Air is by far the best airlines I have flown with. Great service, perfect locations."
Cons: "China Air was alright. Just didn't like the whole running around the airport trying to figure out what counter to go to. Also I am not a big fan of getting transported via bus from terminal to plane"
Pros: "Leg room was more than most economy; however, my seat would not lay down and it was miserable for 11 hr ride from Korea to Los Angeles, California."
Cons: "Seat would not lay down for 11 hours."
Cons: "Special meal options really bad. All vegetarian meal preferences including lacto-ovo-vegetarian are treated same as vegan, which is dumb."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Pros: "Multiple rounds of complimentary food and drinks"
Cons: "Unable to sleep"
Pros: "I requested a special meal which was accommodated and quite tasty. The flight attendants were very nice and always brought water and juice around the aisles. The warm towel was a pleasant surprise."
Cons: "Such a full plane with little space. Made the long flight uncomfortable."
Pros: "After requesting a special meal, the flight attendants made absolutely sure of my identity before passing the meal to me (which was GREAT!). Having the pillow, blanket and headphones ready in place when boarding was considerate of Korean Air. Of course, no matter what, having to ask people to accommodate the requests to use the lavatory got old really fast (I had a window seat) but it's what had to happen. Overall, for such a long flight, the airline is a pleasant one with which to fly."
Pros: "Stewardess are courteous."
Cons: "Bathroom floor is not maintained properly. Always wet."
Pros: "Everything was great. The only suggestion I would like to make on another topic is the cost of an extra luggage. Compared to another airline I use (Eva Air), I find the Korean Air extra luggage cost much higher."
Cons: "Again, my special meal request wasn't found and I ended up eating nothing"
Pros: "The entertaiment choices were very good on such a short flight."
Cons: "Seat was so cramp to the point of suffering."
Pros: "The planes were very clean and in good working order. The crew was excellent. We had a very short connection but were met as we got off our first flight in Seoul and given great instructions about how to quickly get to our connection through security while our flight to SFO was being held for 15 minutes. The food was very good, choice of movies and TV excellent. Our bags made it to SFO despite the short connection. All in all I couldn't ask for a better way to make a 20 hr trip to the other side of the world."
Cons: "Did not make this flight"
Pros: "Thanks Jennifer, my flight attendant"
Cons: "Under the current health emergency the whole crew went above and beyond. Thank you!"

Cons: "Underseat space for center seats is not adequate for two seats. One the the entertainment screens required multiple resets throughout the flight."
Cons: "Prior to boarding, a gate attendant talked to the passengers in a VERY condescending way with regard to their carry on luggage. The original plane had mechanical problems, identified after half the passengers had already boarded. It was stressful enough without this person raising her voice and talking to us as though we were children."
Pros: "Our attendant was simply the best I have ever had the pleasure of flying with."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
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."
Cons: "We were boarded thinking we were taking off soon. Except the delay continued for another hour and a half I found out. I had exited the plane having been given the option of staying in Gainesville in a hotel provided by the airline and being booked on a flight the next day."
Cons: "Just about everything"
Pros: "The flight being on time"
Pros: "It was a red eye. So good to be seated, quiet. not too crowded."
Cons: "It was really GOOD overall."
Cons: "Ticket agent was rude and 3 flights later found a super sweet ticket agent but 10 hours longer to get to my destination"
Pros: "Aubrie and Claire"
Cons: "Engine could have started. It didn’t."
Pros: "Honestly, Nothing!"
Cons: "Most terrible flying experience all around. I will never fly American airlines again."
Cons: "It would have been nice to have the individual TVs on every screen given how long the flight was. At this point it seems like most international flights have them so I would have appreciated it here"
Pros: "liked the crew, but didn't know that we would have to check our bags, since the plane was small & had no overhead. Also, I wish I would have been told ahead of time, that I would have to check my bag again going home, even though the plane did have overhead space. Other than that, I love AA!"
Cons: "I didn't get very good instructions about picking up my carry on bag plane side. I was told to go to the baggage claim instead by a staff member when I came out of the plane, but this was wrong, so I ended up waiting a very long time for them to bring me my carry on bag to the baggage claim."
Pros: "Easy boarding, flight on time, friendly creew"
Cons: "old plane with seat not confortable for a 3h flight"
Pros: "Puntual, connexion gates very closed,"
Cons: "I need to paid 100$ or more to have a seat"

Cons: "I have no complaints."
Cons: "Paying for non middle seats"
Cons: "Entertainment via internet could NEVER be really be done complitly. And the flight attendants did not know how to help costumers"
Pros: "The seats were comfy and spacious."
Pros: "The crew was ok"
Cons: "It was 1:45 late . It was American Airline, we had extra passenger on board. It took them long time to figure it out. I was so rush, I barely made the connectiog flight and I only had carry on luggage."
Pros: "Left early and landed 20 minutes ahead of schedule. Only bad news was the gate which was on the tarmac and about a mile from the terminal. We needed the extra twenty minutes to reach the terminal on foot. We needed a shut!le!"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "They separated my bags, so I had to wait in Philadelphia for my bag to arrive on next flight 2 1/2 hours latter. Not happy after flying from Sydney."
Cons: "Ugh. By this time I'm worn out and fed up from hassling with Customs. Then they lose my luggage."
Pros: "The cabin crew bent over backwards to help."
Cons: "Late, missed connnection. Terrible"
Pros: "Very comfortable cabin,"
Cons: "couldn't get the in flight entertainment to work"
Cons: "Check in at Paris took 2 hours to get through passport control and baggage pick up."
Cons: "Miserable food. Just horrible quality. Truly - and I'm not picky."
Cons: "Wait time to board was delayed 20 minutes."
Pros: "Nothing, the worse experience I've ever had on a flight from the US Never AA again!!"
Cons: "Unprofessional crew!! The safety instruction was a mess, first it was on the big screen, totally black, only sound, then the crew started a discussion in the ail if the would do the safety instructions yes or no...in the end they did it without explanation what the were doing and in 2 minutes. Al three of them just did something. Rude and chewing gum crew, the dropped a salad bowl but not one of them was thinking about cleaning it up. The entire flight everybody walked over it in to the carpet. Friendlynes and service are two words that does not apply to this crew. From the first flight till the last flight AA made a mess out of it. Canceled our flight in JFK, no help or service, you are on your own when AA cancels a flight, after rebooking our flight we had a 7 hour stopover at Dallas, again no service, no voucher, no nothing. Then today with our return flight AA could not find our ticket numbers, turns out that when they rebooked our inbound flight they forgot to take over the return flight...cost us 2 hours and 10 minutes to check in at LGA Never, ever again with AA, even easyJet provides better service then AA does on intercontinental flight!"
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"
Cons: "Liked it all."
Cons: "Most disorganized boarding ever seen. cabin crew disengaged. food average."
Pros: "The Crew were outstanding and the flights were quiet and smooth. Very comfortable flight!"
Pros: "Everything was on time"
Cons: "Not enough room between seats"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful flight attendants. Flight left and arrived on time, despite being completely full (asking for volunteers to bump). Offered to gate-check our carry-on bags for free to alleviate crowding of overhead bins was fine for us since we already had checked baggage."
Cons: "If you don't pay for the premium seats, the legroom is pretty tight. I'm only 5'8" and I felt it -- if you're 6'+ you better pay for it. This aircraft had screens, but not individual ones so you're stuck watching whatever sitcom replay they pick, although there is a moderate selection of other music. I've been on a newer aircraft with the in-seat power and interactive screens so I know how good it can be, so this was a little disappointing."
Cons: "The only negative aspect of the three hopswas a couple of gate changes prior to boarding... one at Dallas and one at Charlotte and the could not have been much further apart, new gate from the original gate... but it made for a leg-stretcher during a long day of sitting"
Pros: "Clean, friendly staff, great baggage tracking. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Overcrowded, but that's the same no matter where. Usual rude frequent fliers, who also usually take up all the overhead space."
Cons: "Very!! Dissatisfied & disappointed with AA. Finally took off over 3 hrs late. At that point everyone was thrilled that we were going versus being canceled. Had food in business class which tasted like it had been overcooked for three hours"
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Terribly disorganized with security checks and confusion since no organized area to hold people."
Pros: "Nothing I like"
Cons: "Family trip ruined because of the delay departure. And the airline is not able to do anything to make this situation better. The wait line is over an hour. Most ppl miss their flights. The crew member at the desk is very rude and doesn't have patience to explain my questions. Unsatisfied experience ever!"
Pros: "Very rude and plane was hot. No air conditioning"
Pros: "Unable to Rate food & entertainment (night flight) I can, however, rate comfort since it was the worst crammed in seating ever!! They talk about the increase in violent behavior. Perhaps American Air could step up to the plate and offer a bit of comfort for hard working passengers. How? Easy to figure out!! Give us leg room for crying out loud."
Cons: "Crammed seating... No leg room.... Volunteered to check carry on... (Big mistake) had a longish wait for bags.."
Pros: "QUE SEA PUNTUAL"
