Fort Lauderdale connection is very bad with immigration with all the flights coming in Chicago should be a destination for direct flights to Columbia least they can take care of the crowd fast enough
Seats in row 2 very uncomfortable for sleeping!
Crew was arrogant and obnoxious. Wouldn’t help me pick up trash and another poured coffee on me twice, with one pathetic “sorry”. Flight attendants had so much baggage that passengers couldn’t find space in the overhead compartments causing a significant delay in our departure. In bound aircraft was late arriving from Haiti exasperating the situation. Based on this trip I would not recommend jet blue to anyone
Pros: "Honestly the only thing I can say that I liked was that we got back to Fort Lauderdale in less than two hours."
Cons: "Honestly the only thing I can say that I liked was that we got back to Fort Lauderdale in less than two hours. We were told to arrive at the airport for our flight which was delayed incase our flight left on time. our gate changed five different times. Our flight was supposed to leave from Puerto Rico to Ft. Lauderdale @ 1:30 p.m. the flight kept getting delayed . our flight did not take off until 7:30 that evening. Nobody informed us of anything what the delay was etc. it was handled horribly by Jet Blue staff. We were t offered vouchers nothing."
Cons: "Missed the connecting flight by about 15 minutes, strange that we get delayed for about an hour but the connecting flight can’t wait a few minutes. Currently en route to another airport to spend the night at the airport and then take an early morning flight to my home city. Would have been nice to get a hotel room. I also had trouble with being charged for a second checked bag when I only had a single checked bag, would be great if the customer service help desk could help with that at the airport."
Pros: "Paid seat was comfortable, entertainment was great"
Cons: "The elder gentleman was very rude throughout the flight. Paid for front row seat mostly due to covid and he made us seat and wait for people that had a connection flight to exit the plane all the way from the end of the aircraft defeating the purpose of me buying the front row seat at $65 which was more than the seat was worth. The way the crew asked was was very rude because he stated if we stand up he would keep the door closed. I understand about the passengers with connection flight but its Jetblue responsibility to get these people to their connection but it shouldn’t jeopardize me."
Pros: "Jet Blue's legroom"
Cons: "Too many delays"
Cons: "The delay was almost unbearable"
Pros: "The luggage waiting time was 0!"
Pros: "I slept throughout the flight."
Cons: "I did not experience any disturbance."
Pros: "The movies"
Cons: "To flight on time!"
Cons: "My entertainment system sound was poor"
Cons: "Everything, 5 hours delay"
Cons: "Everything, for example being on time"
Pros: "Los asientos amplios"
Cons: "The snack bar, Couoh he better"
Cons: "At the airport we are still waiting for our luggage almost an hour"
Pros: "The crew was good. They explained why we were late and helped with resetting the cabins TVs."
Cons: "The flight was delayed somewhat significantly which was very frustrating. Two of the four flights this trip were delayed."
Pros: "Nice leg room, I like the option to watch TV for free"
Cons: "Our plane had a maintenance issue we didn’t bord for an hour after the original Time. The communication could have been way better from the gate agent to let us know updates."
Pros: "Jet Blue planes are always great. Super clean and comfortable."
Cons: "They should have scheduled pistols for our flight. We had to delay the flight for two hours until they arrived."
Pros: "Crew was kind and very helpful. Also, I found the seats to be comfortable and didn’t feel squished. There was plenty of leg room. Great experience overall. Thank you!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing! Was a fantastic experience!!!!"
Pros: "excellent free snacks and nice water!"
Pros: "The flight crew was very nice"
Cons: "The fact that I was 3 minutes late to check my bag (due to a line and walking to the wrong counter the first time) and they would not allow me to go on my original flight and route my bag on another flight. This resulted in me and my bag getting pushed on two new flights and my overall travel time going from 4.5 hrs to 11 hrs which with a 15 month old is an eternity. Many other airlines will allow you to make exceptions when checking in late (I was still nearly 40 minutes prior to flight departure) and let me still check a bag OR allow me and my baby to stay on the same flight without the bag."
Pros: "I liked the prices for the airfare"
Cons: "Boarding didn’t start until probably 10:30 or so. Flight was supposed to leave at 10:20, but there was a broken seat or something that needed to be repaired."
Pros: "Captain ended up being a good pilot with a very smooth landing,"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 hours because the crew was comprised of members from flights delayed by the snowstorm. Even though gate attendants knew they were on their way, attendants refused to let us board until the crew was all on board. Then we had to wait some more....... Also they were lax on pre-boarding announcements, not letting families with children on first. And waiting until each group was fully boarded before announcing the next. Plus the enunciation of various announcements was difficult to understand and/or way too fast. It wasn't funny."
Pros: "Crew was nice and the flight was fine"
Cons: "I was quite shocked that the seat I had originally been put in the head phone jack and The Wholearea where the channel changes was falling apart. I was able to switch seats due to flight being not full but that would be annoying. I also was weirded out that they did not ha e touch screens. In general the plane just seemed old and dirty to me."
Pros: "The plane that the rerouted to replace the original plane was very comfortable. The email updates where better then the information at the gate. Normally, I enjoy flying JetBlue however, this weekend's round trip was disappointing. My 1st flight was delayed about 5 hours and the return flight was delayed as well."
Cons: "The long delay and limited snacks. (After that long delay) The incident on the plane- the passengers had to take action and not the flight attends when a passenger threaten by another passenger. A good Samaritan came to the woman's aid and ensure she was safe by switching her seat. Prior to this, another passenger had to use her call button to try to notify the flight attends because the woman was unable to. (That was her second attempt to notify the attendants). I am unclear to why her first attempt to change seats was not taken under consideration by the flight attended. The alleged passenger was clearly intoxicated and had fallen on the women. The flight attends did intervened after the flight landed at FLL. The woman was detained on the plane along with the alleged passenger. Once again, I am not sure if that was wise. The woman could have been taken off the plane safely and quested at the gate at a safe distance. The alleged passenger was too intoxicated to comply with the flight attends requests to disembark the plan. I would have liked for the JetBlue flight attends to be more proactive or at the very least to keep an eye on the situation to ensure it did not escalate. This all could have been avoided if the woman's 1st request to change her seat to one of the many available seats was granted. Better ye,t for this alleged passenger to have never been able to board the plane in his condition. It was physically noticeable and the surrounding passengers stated they could smell the alcohol on him. Disappointed!"
Pros: "I loved that the pilot on my first flight introduced himself and staff to the customers prior to loading the plane. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. The leg-room! The leg room was a great surprise. No hassle with bags. Great snacks, wi-fi and movies for FREE! I was so tickled. I've never flown JetBlue. I thought it was just another low-cost airline that makes you pay for everything , what a nice surprise! I immediately gave you a shout-out on my facebook account. Best flight experience I've had in a long time. Thank you."
Pros: "Nothing really."
Cons: "1. Forced to check carry on because of a pocket in the front when other passengers were allowed to bring actual suitcases which were taken right before boarding. Apparently JetBlue has a quota to meet as to how many people they charge for carry on luggage. 2. Refused to allow me to request my seat ahead of time to try and charge a $50 fee for an upgraded seat, even though by purchasing a ticket, I am guaranteed a seat on the plane. 3. Late once again. So far every flight taken by JetBlue this year has been late. My only on time flight this year has been with Delta. I do believe they are the new Spirit Airlines in disguise. This airline has been moved to the bottom of my list. I may take them once more but it depends on how many points I have with them, if it's enough to cover a free trip. If it doesn't, I will forfeit as the aggravation and nasty behaviour at the check in counter especially at LaGuardia is too much to take. They are also every discriminatory at that airport also, especially the people who work at JetBlue. I have to take responsibility for keep trying. It the same as beating a dead horse and expecting it to get up and run."
Pros: "They didn’t make me check my carry-on even though full flight. Other airlines almost always do. Began boarding exactly when they said they would."
Cons: "First attempt to check im at kiosk failed. Was told to see an agent. Ignored that command made another attempt at kiosk and was able to get BP. The brag about their free wifi at every seat but it didn’t work. Can’t complain tho because seat back video screen had plenty of other entertainment."
Pros: "I appreciated the in flight entertainment, the eye mask and ear plugs."
Cons: "The seats were horribly uncomfortable. The controls for the screen are on the arm rest, where they get inadvertently pushed. Would have liked another beverage service on a flight that long."
Pros: "Easy boarding, friendly staff, nice choice of snacks and beverages. The JetBlue app is very useful."
Cons: "My in flight entertainment never worked. All I had available to look at was the JetBlue commercial channel showing me all of the entertainment I wasn’t able to watch. Not even the live view map worked. One of the attendants said something about resetting the system but I didn’t notice a change. I said something to one of the attendants a little later and she tried doing a reset again, but still no success. I could see other screens working fine and people were watching various programs while I just stared at a static map of the continental United States. Oh well, at least I was able to stream Netflix because of the free inflight WiFi."
Cons: "I came to the airport 11:30am asked to rebook for earlier flight which wasn’t possible unless 75$ charged. I decided to wait till 4:16pm departure that ended being 3:50 am the next day. Meanwhile it took several hours to receive water and pretzels, pizza finally came after 9 hr wait(which gave me heartburn). Ground crew disorganized feeding us excuses of weather (wx) which initially was a landing gear problem for first 1.5 hr delay then again WX and ATC not assigning a route(while other airlines departing no problem) then crew timed out then no plane & again waiting for crew...Seriously? What a management!!! Reading comments below this keeps repeating however this was about 13 hours delay. This company should quit!"
Cons: "My son had to go to the bathroom shortly after we landed. Which he had to since the seatbelt sign was turned on when we were landing. He really couldn't hold it any longer and he is 4. I was sitting in the last row next to the bathroom and I attempted to get up to take him. The stewardess was very rude and told me to have a seat. I said he is about to pee in his pants and I sat down. Well sure enough he urinated on himself. He was so upset because he thought the rude stewardess would get bad at him. He also didn't understand why he couldn't go to the bathroom. So he urinated on the floor of the aircraft. So I left with my 4 year old boy covered in urine and in tears along with my 6 year old and my 2 year old who was having a tantrum at the same time. This made my mother's day complete. I felt as if the staff on this flight was very rude. No one even said sorry or cared about what had just happened. Even a happy mother's day greeting would have been nice. To add on our flight to Philadelphia we we're delayed for 3 hours. We have three children 6 and under and ended up arriving at about 3:15am. Your airline did absolutely nothing to make us more comfortable and am overall very dissappointed in JetBlue."
Pros: "The light snack was adequate. My husband is a big guy and sometimes has issues flying due to size, found seats to be comfortable. Also, Jetblue gave us us a $50 credit for the inconvenience."
Cons: "We left half an hour late. Also, was stuck on the tarmac for 2 hours due to thunder and lightening storm with a screaming child on board. Howeverer, weather is not Jetblue's fault."
Cons: "Limited movie options."
Cons: "I didn't like it at all, Jetbule should had find another airline to take me so I can arrive at around the same time , not just with the flights they offer but I should be able to get into another airline too"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly, and the TV's were working on the flight (did not on the flight from FLL/EWR)."
Cons: "Booked this flight to get a ride home, and in time for dinner with family. Flight was delayed 50 min. because of a delay in the arrival of the plane (not weather). During boarding process they were allowing people to get up and move around before takeoff, delaying over another 10min. When we finally arrived at 9:10 to the gate, another plane was at the gate and we did not get into the gate until 9:25. Thus, by the time the flight arrived I needed to get other transportation, cost me $25 and additional 30min. waiting for ride. This resulted in getting me home almost 2 hours late. Additional feedback: I book an aisle seat because I like being able to lift the arm on the outside, not available on this flight. I don't recall the plug for the headphones being down so far in the arm rest, thus struggled to find the plug."
Cons: "The boarding was a shitshow because nothing was done to prevent people from taking all of the overhead compartment room, so by the time my group boarded, there was no room. But, people were still trying and so that backed the line way up from 1/2 way into the plane all the way out the plane and IN SPITE OF MY REPEATED ATTEMPTS TO GET THE FLIGHT CREW TO ASSIST AND CLEAN UP THIS PILE OF HUMANITY, THEY DID NOTHING!!! They forced me to gate checked my carry on bag (no checked bag) and did not tell me I would not get it back AT the plane and had to go out through security to get it at the baggage claim and come back in through security and because of that incompetence I MISSED MY CONNECTION AND WAS STRANDED IN FLL OVERNIGHT. After the front desk continuously trying to explain to me how it was my fault some how, I HAD TO PURCHASE A SEPARATE TICKET ON A DIFFERENT AIRLINE OUT OF MIA AT 5AM TO MAKE THE WEDDING!!!! This is beyond unacceptable and as someone that travels for work and stays roughly 100 nights a year in hotels, I WILL NEVER ALLOW YOUR COMPANY TO BE ABLE TO PUT ME IN THIS SITUATION AGAIN!!!!"
Pros: "What did I like? Well, I liked arriving at my destination, though getting there on Jet Blue was unpleasant."
Cons: "Stressful due to delays, disorganization, lack of communication, developing-world style of service."
Pros: "Crew member was nice because they didn’t know how to fix it"
Cons: "My tv didn’t work and their was no on flight usb phone charges. Could of flown spirit twice for the price I paid.."
Pros: "Every single employee I interacted with was awesome."
Cons: "Over 5 hours in delay due to a maintenance issue. Problem wasn't discovered overnight when it was parked. Wasn't discovered until the next day. Had to wait for the delivery of a specific part and install it. I'm all for planes not breaking upon reentry, but the fact that the two flights were both subsequently delayed 4-5 hours each instead of bringing in a sub plane was inconsiderate. Now I've got a long drive home and I'll only get an hour of sleep before a 14-hour work day. So thanks for that, JetBlue"
Cons: "Boarding time and crew was slowest ever?!!!"
Pros: "On time. Very comfortable seats in coach!!"
Pros: "I like the fact that Jetblue handled the on boarding ot the passengers fast and efficiently starting with preferred riders, then going from the rear of the plane and moving forward. They also realized the plane was full so offered customers the free option of checking a bag in cargo. I would have preferred if they advised customers before checking through security of this option as I would have taken it rather than discard with some bottled products. The entertainment video was great on board, they offered free beverages and snacks. The crew moved through the aisle fast and efficiently when dispersing the food, and again when collect the refuse. While we had a little turbulence, the flight was uneventful and the pilot handled the landing very well. Departing the plane was also fast and efficient, although takes time because the plane was full. Overall, I was impressed with JetBlue, and their flight team."
Cons: "I thought that although comfortable, the chairs and fabric were obviously well worn and definitely needed upgrading. I also noticed that the chair head area didn't have a removable sanitary cover, which I thought should be there considering the number and frequency of change overs per seat on these flights. This is necessary to promote sanitary and comfortable conditions."
Pros: "The crew was exceptional, going out of their way to find spots for the few people left who still had carry on baggage. They tried very hard to make sure everyone had their luggage with them, which I thought was very nice as I have not seen that in any other airplane. They were also very polite and generous with the snacks and drinks, and came around multiple times with garbage bags."
Cons: "The plane itself was incredibly old and the seats were worn down with marks and smudges. It smelled quite bad but at least the TV's still worked."
Cons: "My trip of a lifetime to Peru (Choquequirao, Sacred Valley, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca) has been severely impacted because my luggage was not put on my flight. Computer record showed that I did not board despite my boarding pass being scanned and my passport number entered at the gate before I boarded. I left for a 6 day trek to Choquequirao, Peru without any of the gear that I needed for this trip. I had to acquire the bare minimum in a rush the night before leaving for the trek. I'm 10 days into my trip and still do not have my bag. Central baggage claim has been less than sympathetic and not at all proactive or helpful."
Pros: "They gave everyone free drinks and food while we waited and gave everyone a gift card to make up for the wait. The staff was very nice and they gave us updated every half hour. It was a bad and good experience. Customer Service gets an A+ from me."
Cons: "My flight was delay 8 hours."
Cons: "This delay made me miss my rental car reservation so I have to find another car for the night. Which cost me 100$ when I already had a car booked. Then since I didn't get there in time they canceled my reservation and find a new rental for the week. First bad experience with jet blue"
Wis there was more leg room for tall persons like myself.
I wish there was more leg room in the cabin for tall personsike myself.
Pros: "Space between seats, tv on each seat, iPhone charger"
Pros: "flight was non stop and arrived more or less on time."
Cons: "boarding in PTY was awful--total chaos. Seat was uncomfortable meal was mediocre"
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Pros: "I like this flight very smooth no worry what so ever I will flight again"
Cons: "Copa change our flight to 5 hr layover with no options and panama airport is not comfortable to be there for that many hours unless you pay for the lounge $48 p/person and only 30 mins free wi-fi so very inconvenient. Also that airport closes the gates that are not been use so no one can sit."
Cons: "Follow through on reservations made 6+ months in advance. And the $10 vouchers to make up for your terrible mistake are ridiculous, that does not make up for a whole day wasted. Also, food smelled and tasted horrible."
Pros: "Crew and seat comfort were exceptionally good"
Cons: "Since the flight was arriving at jfk,passengers were required to go thru a security check,prior to boarding.we were restricted to an enclosed area for hours with no water or bathrooms.small children were crying as it was a late night flight. Tsa precheck global entry were disregarded.avoidable"
Pros: "The crew was amazing!"
Cons: "I think everything is ok right now."
Pros: "Smooth boarding"
Cons: "Luggage pick up"
Pros: "Comfortable, nice crew"
Cons: "Dirty baths"
Pros: "The information provided prior to the flight and online booking experience."
Cons: "Rude flight attendants Rude gate / entry attendants No guidance was given to passengers prior to boarding regarding how long it would be until boarding so everyone was just standing around pushing toward the doors. Long, unorganized boarding process. Attendants just allowed everyone to gather in front of the doors so rude passengers pushed their way to the front and cut the "line." No tvs in the seats. I am vegetarian and was not given a vegetarian option! Very Inconsiderate of this airline. Even worse, the flight attendant basically told me that it was my fault because I didn't ask for one in advance. Extremely poor customer service! Had I been asked, I would have requested a vegetarian meal but I did not see that option when booking."
Cons: "Crew was not friendly"
Cons: "I bought my ticket in June with a window seat. When I got to Copa check in they told me I didn’t have an assigned seat (and I got there very early) and that she couldn’t help me get a seat assignment until I got to the gate. Then at the gate very poor customer service and she gave me a middle seat without even really looking at the flight. On thr flight food was mediocre. Not good aircirculation on the flight, ac was not good. And I was also on the last group to board, boarding process was a disaster. Will not use Kayak again."
Pros: "Got us to our destination poor."
Cons: "The long waiting on the line to board and the food portion small and quality poor."
Pros: "They offer food and free alcohol. This is not common any longer in the US."
Cons: "In Panama City during a layover, we had to go through security a second time."
Pros: "Seats very comfortable & price for Business Class very reasonable."
Cons: "Boarding crew didn’t speak English but, tried to be helpful. No one shared there would be 2nd security at the gate. Business lounge would only rate 2 stars. Reception team not very friendly. Nothing to eat & no outside food allowed. If you were a big drinker I guess it was great. Crew was nice but, did not make you feel special like on my two flights down."
Pros: "I like the fact the there was a entertainment system for each passenger."
Cons: "I didnt like that the airplane was small for a international flight, also didnt like that the aircraft did not have wifi."
Pros: "The food and the first class seating"
Cons: "My luggage was lost"
Pros: "On time departure, staff professionalism, service"
Cons: "Boarding process in terms of travelers blocking boarding lane for other travelers to board. An announcement has to be made several times for travelers in groups 2 through 5 to remain seated and not block boarding lane."
Pros: "I liked everything. Excellent service, friendly crew, very good food, well informed, been travelled with Copa Airlines for a few years now n will continue with them on the future. Great job guys. Thanks"
Pros: "I've never had a flight that was late with Copa."
Pros: "The crew was attentive Ontime"
Cons: "Limited movie choices Limited legroom (like many airlines in cattle class) No chess in games"
Pros: "Flight to Panama City from JFK went well."
Cons: "The tickets we paid for back in August of 2017 were bought for a direct flight. When checking in for our flight back to JFK on March 18th, they told us there were no seats available. They then put us on a connecting through Orlando, all of us had to sit separately now. We had to each spent money we did not intend to use for this vacation on food since our day was well extended beyond expected and parking fees for keeping our car at JFK longer. Once arrived in Orlando, two out of the four of us missed our flight to JFK because they gave us the wrong boarding passes and because we are students in college, lost multiple hours of studying tonight. We had to then work with Delta who was kind enough to find us a flight multiple hours later. Like said before, this split our group up and caused multiple difficulties. We will never fly Copa again. They believe a $400 Copa airlines voucher is justifiable for what happened but it is not. I’ll never fly with them again for this inconvenience so a voucher doesn’t do anything."
Cons: "entertainment system touch screen was not working. No relaxing music video, meditation videos. new Movie selection was ok only 4 titles, at least one was nominated for a oscar."
Cons: "There was a second security check right at the gate, which we were not warned about at all. I had bought a bottle of liquor in Colombia and they would not let me get on the plane to NYC with it. Luckily I had a large shopping bag that I got from the gift shop in Colombia, so I was able to dump everything that was in my nylon tote into that shopping bag and they haphazardly wrapped my bottle in one of my sweaters and checked my tote. The employees said this was a new policy in Panama City, but many other travelers were confused. Passengers should be warned!"
Pros: "Great fast connection in Panama"
Pros: "The service aboard the plane was great"
Cons: "It was a little nightmare with the double screening, this is hard when you are traveling with kids."
Pros: "To do bien To do muy. Muy Bueno"
Cons: "To do"
Pros: "Overall comfort and attentiveness of staff is hard to beat elsewhere."
Cons: "Everything was fine with this trip;"
Pros: "Flight was canceled by airlines Ruined our whole vacation to Panama Was offered a flight the following week After our vacation Did not offer a refund"
Cons: "Non cooperative Did not allow a refund after they canceled flight"
Pros: "Excellent service from beginning to the end awesome job"
Cons: "They canceled our flight without notice, did not help us find a hotel or another flight and offered us a flight five days later in a foreign country. I am an American from USA and we should cut all contact with COPA airlines immediately."
Cons: "The fact that you do not allow water in the waiting area at the gate after passing the first security check is utterly ridiculous! if you want to enforce that policy you should provide free water at the gate. it was overheated and crowded to the brim and my wife went to get water after having gone through the second security check. She paid $10 for 2 bottles of water at the stand just before the gate and when she tried to come in again they did not allow her to go through... really a ridiculous situation!"
Cons: "The seat was too small. I am 5' 5" and 135 lb and it felt totally small and uncomfortable. I had trouble sitting all the time, the seat also doesn't recline enough. This was a totally awful trip due to the seat."
Cons: "Not only were we not told in advance that we'd have to go through security again in order to sit in the gate area, but we weren't allowed to bring in beverages we bought right next to the gate and there was no bathroom in the area we were being held before we were boarded. You'd have to go through security again. Also, the security guard accused my tall, black, injured, elderly father of being suspicious because he was sweating in spite of the fact that she wouldn't let him drink water unless he left the gate area even though he was injured. Never flying Copa again and never going to Panama again, not even for a layover."
Pros: "Arrived at the gate about 1 hour before departure due to heavy traffic. Attendant was pleasant and did a quick checkin."
Cons: "When you select the meal options in advance through the Copa Airlines site the phrasing of those ptions is not very clear and I was stuck with a choice I didn’t want (“meal with fruits” - it was pretty confusing in English or Spanish - while I assumed perhaps the dessert items would be substituted with fruit, instead they brought me a pretty mediocre fruit platter). They said there was no way to change this. Copa airlines personnel at Panama airport actually were kind of rude about it."
Pros: "The crew was really sweet."
Cons: "The waiting between flights"
Cons: "I did not like those seat in the middle . They are very"
Pros: "i dont know because i stills waiting for it!!!"
Cons: "no comments because i was supposed to be in ny right now amd im still sitting here at the airport waiting for my flight! because of the people in Venezuela! !"
Cons: "Lack of food"
Pros: "Everything was great accept"
Cons: "NO WIFI, MAKES NO SENSE. if you love Internet access while you fly Copa isn't the airline for you."
Pros: "Seats were large and comfortable Plenty over head space"
Cons: "Only one washroom was working so there was always a line"
Pros: "The flight was good. The service and information incorrect and could have resulted in my bags being lost if I was not super careful (see below)"
Cons: "(1) The check in people erroneously told me that my bags would be checked all the way through which was not correct (2) I bought duty free and had to exit the traveler section of the airport. therefore my 'duty free" became an issue at Trinidad (3) Very fortunately I checked the carousel at Trinidad airport only to find out that I had to re-check my bags in Trinidad. (4) The Trinidad check in staff were not very helpful. I had to wait until someone was available (and they took their sweet time) to take me through some back entrances so that I would not have to re-pay duty on my goods. Not a pleasant experience and one that I will avoid at all costs in the future. This is not the way to treat customers and TOTALLY un-necessary. This is not 21st Century travel!"
Cons: "Provide some tv. Evening meal, not sandwiches. Leave on time"
Pros: "Quick baggage handling. Fast check In"
Cons: "Less delays. Staff was too loud and constantly disturbed with advertisements and sales pitches. Rushed meal services."
Pros: "Crew was ok, only they missed a very important detail. A passenger traveling with a baby and did changed the baby's PAMPERS right there on the seat which automatically put a putrid odor in about 10 seat perimeter that lasted for a LONG time and the crew didn't say anything until everyone complained"
Pros: "The flight attendant were attentive and professional in every case. I really enjoyed the service of the crew keep it going u made an impression that will keep going."
Cons: "No complaints my way i had a great time onboard is probably because of my fellow passengers. It’s always fun regardless."
Cons: "Personal TVs Seats just weren’t comfortable."
Cons: "There was no interactive map on the in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Everything was up to the par, from service to staff."
Pros: "Upgraded to First Class, and the service during the flight was impeccable."
Cons: "- Flight was delayed every other hour, without reason. Staff didn't communicate what was going on. - Elderly people on wheelchairs were delayed in-transit for over 6 hours and no one attended to them until the final hour before the flight. - Staff did not want to give any reason why flight was delayed. - Flight was not even posted on the "Flight Status Board" and no one had a reason why. - Upgraded to First Class to experience it - the lounge had a few sandwiches that seemed to be sitting there for hours."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and I totally missed my other connection so now I have to wait hours on standby. Thank you."
Cons: "Will never fly Caribbean Airlines again"
Pros: "Flight departed on time.Boarding was orderly.The stewardess was great."
Cons: "More food choices"
Pros: "I like the seating and the air hostesses were very courteous and helpful. The boarding process was excellent and I was very comfortable throughout the flight, I had lots of legroom. The entertainment was ok. Overall I had a great time flying with Caribbean Airline and I will surely fly with Caribbean Airline again."
Cons: "I did not like the check in process the guy at the counter was not very courteous. He was telling me about my name which I used all the time for traveling all over the world. He also let me open my computer to show him my return ticket and then he was telling me to give him ticket number when there was no ticket number on the itinerary. I did not like the vegetarian sandwich the bread was too hard and dry and the vegetables was mediocre."
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "no wifi, no jamaican food"
Pros: "The pilot and crew were engaged with the passengers. The pilot informed us of the journey; how we will get to NY."
Cons: "I was saving my food for later. It was on the tray table. It was removed when I was sleeping. I woke up just in time to asked her before the attendant moved. She reported that she would get me a fresh one. I supposed she had already mixed it with the trash why she promised a fresh one. She never kept her promise. I mentioned it when I was coming off and was told that I was going to get cheese and crackers but what was supposed to happen did not matter that she told me that because it did not happen. I put the cup on the other tray table because it wad trash. The sandwich was close to me. Other than my gripe over my food taken away, I have no complaints. My expectation was exceeded."

Pros: "Great service and food Friendly staff"
Pros: "The crew was nice n there was more leg room than the flight down"

Cons: "The plane was clean, but not immaculately clean."
Pros: "The professionalism of the crew was top notch."
Cons: "Actually nothing much to complain about expect I wish the seats were a bit more spacious."
Pros: "I will continue to always shop from Kayak.com, this is my 5th trip while buyin the ticket from this site & im well pleased."
Cons: "There was a moment when i wanted to change my return flight just to catch a later one & was told i couldnt change it at the airline."
Pros: "I will continue to always shop from Kayak.com, this is my 5th trip while buyin the ticket from this site & im well pleased."

Pros: "The plane was very old, didn't feel safe!"
Pros: "i lied absolutely nothing service was extremely poor"
Cons: "i didnt like everything about this flight from food to the poor service and the rude flight attendants"
Cons: "The wheels of my suitcases were in terrible shape as both suitcases had lost a wheel."
Pros: "They give us hot food and drinks for free. The flight attendants were nice and patient."
Cons: "No individual screen service for in flight entertainment."
Pros: "Having a blanket and a meal."
Cons: "The unit schedule stop"
Pros: "The food and hostess"
Pros: "Pilot was very descriptive on path etc"
Pros: "I was really a great experience the crew members were all pleasant and helpful."
Pros: "Love the way captain informed us where we were.... Flying over Cuba. I like that the passengers clapped when the plane landed not all the airline I've travel on does that.."
Cons: "The evening meal was a sandwich wish I had a choice.. But it was very tasty"
Pros: "Flight attendants where very unpleasant no one no answer the baggage everyone was giving me a different answer"
Cons: "Delay in was very long and overbearing"
Pros: "On time departure. The crew was fabulous."
Cons: "The movie started late so we did see the entire movie"
Cons: "They called two zones to board but start taking tickets from all the passengers. Big confusion!"
Pros: "The crew members very hosoitable."
Cons: "Judith, the pilots excellent flyers."
Pros: "Nothing was as i espect no Customer service was poor"
Pros: "Great customer service"
Pros: "The hospitality and friendliness of the crew who always greeted us with a smile."
Pros: "Food was well prepared. Crew was very welcoming and tentative to all passengers."
Cons: "Plane smelled like bathroom when boarding. Same issue when boarding from JFK to MBJ on Carribean Airlines. Smell disappears once air is turned on once inflight. Entertainment is not in-line with competitors. TV's are too high and shared by 4-6 passengers."
Cons: "I didn't like that my flight was delayed, for two hours and that caused me to miss my connected flight from fort"
Pros: "Comfortable, on schedule and courteous."
Cons: "Do not like the connecting process and coordination of those flights."
Cons: "the seats are not padded thick enough... no bounce to it...too tough"
Pros: "The crew on the plane was great, however the woman at the check in counter was very rude and unpleasant, even going thru security everyone had a bad attitude"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled. Wasn't informed. Got no text, email or phone call. Got to the airport and had to wait 8 hrs for the next flight. Just ridiculous."
Pros: "The crew were extremely courteous."
Cons: "There were 2 passengers assigned to seats in the exit row that could not assist in case of emergency. They then refused to move, forty five mins later security we re called to have them relocated. This could have been resolved a lot sooner. It took the crew a very looooooooong time before they contacted security."
Pros: "Friendly staff good food Comfortable 1st class cabin."
Pros: "Staff were very courteous. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "I wonder why we had to be searched by customs in Trinidad after landing there from Orlando. What could we have picked up in the AIR ? Can some one explain to me. This was our second experience at Piarco.. I would appreciate an answer."
The airport closed off checking in 90 mins before departure. Showed up at the airport and was denied entry. Had to re book the flight.
Check in was horrible in Miami. The woman was rude and not helpful with the questions. There was nothing to like at the check in and there were really slow even for First class passenger like me.
Better, more recent entertainment selections
Cons: "Something better to eat"
Pros: "I managed to slip ahead a couple of rows into what I guess was a slightly upgraded seating area. This resulted in my flight being very nice. But had I not been able to pull off this minor theft, I think it would have been miserable. Sitting up straight, without the seat ahead of me reclined, my knees touched the back fo the seat in front of me. It felt like I was sitting at a table in a kindergarten classroom, not a chair meant for an adult. In the upgraded seat I was very comfortable. Staff on board was friendly and helpful throughout the flight."
Cons: "I haven't flown American Airlines in quite a while and one gets quite spoiled flying on Emirates or Qatar or Singapore or Norwegian or whatever other airlines. It's easy to forget how utterly mediocre AA is. The food isn't great, the air quality on the flight is terrible and leaves you feeling oily. They don't air-condition the plane until after everyone is boarded so the whole process is hot, sweaty, and unpleasant. Many of the staff are flat out rude to people (I was never on the receiving end, but I overheard what I considered very abrasive tones to others). And so on. Ideally I'd fly on other airlines I think."
Cons: "The terrible communication for delays and boarding."
Cons: "Seat pitch was too tight, especially when the person in front of me pushed their seat back."
Pros: "Nothing!!! This was a horrible flight experience!!! I will never use American Arilines again especially their Barcelona connections."
Cons: "I would never use American Airlines again. Horrible service at the check-in service at Barcelona Airport. I travel around the world for work and each year I fly to more than 12 international locations but never had a horrible experience like this. My carry-on bag is 21” carry-on bag that I traveled in more than 20 countries for the past 3 years but American Airlines staff members at the check insisted that my carry-on bag does not fit the FAA regulations and they threatened me multiple times when I protested their attitudes. I am an avid traveler and I know my rights as a traveler but the American Airlines staff members were extremely rude and insisted that I have to check-in my carry-on bag. The real issue was that regardless of the size of the carry-on bags, they were forcing almost all passengers to heck-in their carry-on bags a clear indication of money-making scheme. When I protested their attitude, they threatened me saying that I pose a security risk and that they would not check me in but I stabbed my grounded insinuated that my bag fits the FAA regulations. I booked this flight from Bristish Airways and this was a code shared flight, I called British Airways in December 22nd and confirmed the measurements of my carry-on bag but when I told American Airlines about the Bristish Airways, they told me “they don’t care, this American Airlines not British Airways”. It was humiliating, it was disrespectful, and it was unacceptable!!!! At the end, I removed one sweater from carry-on and the issue was resolved but after this experience, I will never never fly with American Airlines and never recommend anyone to use American Arilines especially their Barcelona flights and connections."
Pros: "The flagship first seats in American Airlines are among the best in class given that I only flew from Miami to JFK. Fully flat beds and ample room."
Cons: "Very limited food options."
Pros: "Chocolate ice cream and pot pies"
Cons: "To start, I had paid extra to upgrade to a seat with more leg room only to find I had been reassigned to the back of the plane. This was after I had already done an online check-in for the appropriate seat. Then I was told by the AA agent at the desk that my upgrade was in the system but that it was “fake”. Apparently the money I paid two months before was no good on this flight. I was traveling with my boyfriend and they would not allow us at the same counter because we were not married. After much haggling we were finally able to rectify the situation. Horrible start. Then, once on the plane, the in- flight entertainment system as well as the lights broke right before take off so there was nothing to watch or see for an almost 8 hour flight."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of the scheduled time"
Cons: "Plane was less than half full yet the crew appeared pressured .... one crew member didn’t wait for me to complete my request and she brought me eat phones yet I wanted to ask for water to drink! Seats don’t recline much ...."
Pros: "Relatively comfortable plane, great movies (I watched four!), good timing between meals/snacks."
Cons: "These planes are always SO cramped. We paid to be in the section with 9 seats across instead of 10 which was worth it but wish that they would just give everyone slightly more space - seems humane for such long flights! The group boarding on these huge planes always seems chaotic. Also it seems like it would honestly make more sense to start at the back and move forward. Would have less waiting for people in front of you to get settled. Wish the last snack had a piece of fruit or something with a bit more healthy aspect."
Pros: "This plane is much better than the American Airlines plane I usually get stuck with on my 8 hour direct flight from JFK to MXP. Please stop using the Boeing 767 jets and only use the Boeing 777 for flights across the Atlantic. I would like to fly American more frequently but not if I think I'm going to get stuck with the planes from the 1980s where there's no personal TV, no place to plug in my phone or electronics to charge unless you carry around a car charger, which I definitely don't, and there's no WiFi on those planes either."
Cons: "Boeing 767 Jets! The food is blah - Delta and Emirates is better. The entertainment needs a bit of an update. Or maybe I just fly too often..."
Pros: "When I saw that our BA flight would be operated by AA, I was concerned, given previous poor experiences with American airlines. However, in this case, AA was pretty good, especially the check-in staff at Rome Airport who were excellent. The check-in, boarding and de-boarding processes all went well. Plane was relatively modern, with USB charging ports for phones. Movie selection was good, though the TV selection could be expanded. The food was ok. Seating not bad. All of our luggage, including a child's carseat, was delivered on time and intact. Pleasantly surprised."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice"
Cons: "Checking in, the counter agent first told us we would need a visa to go to the USA. We are American citizens. Then she insisted that we buy checked bag allowance even though our tickets already included checked bags. We had already flown the 1st leg with checked baggage, why would we purchase tickets with no baggage allowance coming home?! The stroller we gate checked was left at the end of the oversized baggage carousel because of the ground crew not wanting to unload gate checked items. I will never EVER fly an AA codeshare flight."
Pros: "Asked a stewardess to turn the heat up and she did."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Every person I could see was wrapped up in their blanket before we had even taken off."
Cons: "Food and drinks could be better"
Pros: "Crew very friendly couldn't be more helpful. Food snacks and drinks good. Very efficient boarding system the best I've encountered."
Cons: "Roof mounted tvs a bit disappointing and the films were just repeated. Coffee needs coffee in the cup, it was just milk and water no taste of coffee."
Pros: "Good space in premium"
Cons: "Female cabin crew were aggressive, discourteous and frankly rude to the passengers when they had to verbally communicate. I hear this so often with American cabin crew. When I started to experience this I became aware of the same trend in regard communications with other passengers. Very unattractive."
Pros: "The overall service x"
Pros: "It was fine. Nothing extraordinary, just solid and fine"
Cons: "Nothing bad in particular. The passengers could've been more friendly, but that's not the airline's fault"
Pros: "Very nice and genuinely friendly flight attendants and ground personnel. Flight arrived early, perfect landing and take off."
Cons: "Kayak/webjet sent me the wrong check in code for the wrong airline operating my flight. I inserted it on the online form multiple times until I was blocked from doing so, and there was no link to communicate online in real time with anyone who could solve the problem. This was extremely stressful and unnecessary, as well as time consuming. It was not how I wanted to spend my final night in Italy. Furthermore, I had to wake up at 4 am to get a very early bus to the airport in order to check in early enough in person. NOT cool. The food was mediocre. The entertainment options were about the worst I've ever seen. My seat hardly went back at all."
Pros: "Due to a strong tailwind we arrived 45 minutes ahead of schedule. Great service with attentive attendants. However the plane was older than me, no real entertainment system or outlets to plug in smart devices."
Cons: "Plane needs to be retired or retrofitted to accommodate smart device charging."
Pros: "The only decent point was the food. Not great but at least edible."
Cons: "Since check in in São Paulo was a complete chaos. There were only 2 people helping on check in (in machines) and these people were still not helping people (like me) with questions about on how to do check in in those machines. On the other hand to dispatch the bags there were almost 8 attendants to receive the bags. Ridiculous! I’ve tried calling American Airlines and Latam several times to assign a seat for me and they swore there were only middle seats but I know how airlines work to make extra money on these seats. At the end, they only gave me a middle seat option and I had to take I.t of course. On the plane I realized there were dozens of empty seats and yet they made sure not give them to me or anyone else. Unbelievable! Unfortunately I still have to use AA on my way back to Brazil. After this, I’ll chose another airlines for sure. Also, the 3,4,3 arrangement is ridiculous: there’s no corridor space making people touching you everything someone passes by your seat. And boy! Those seats are so uncomfortable and there’s no way to incline the chair so you can even have a little rest (because it’s impossible to even sleep on those seats). The crew were simply doing their jobs! No pleasure! No smile! No engaging with anyone unfortunately! They looked miserable and I asked for water and the flight attendant NEVER brought me anything. Seriously! Water is free!"
Pros: "Entertainment was good"
Cons: "Flight was late, seats was small, all time something smelled so much."
Cons: "I hate American airlines. It is the WORST. We were held for almost 4 hours waiting for "maintenance call" then flight was cancelled. THEN it took two full hours to get back checked bags. By ths point it was 5 pm, had been at airport since 8:30 -- no food offered, no apologies, not even a glass of water. Of course, no flights back to US so I was stuck an extra day, completely messed up school and work. I THOUGHT I was booking with Iberia but it was a code share. I WILL NEVER fly American Airlines again!"
Pros: "Having flown many international airlines, I was proud to give American the highest ratings for quality and general hospital."
Cons: "More up to date movies would help"
Cons: "More than a 2 hour delay in Madrid for American Airlines to replace the seat harness on the Co-pilot's chair. This seems like an evolution that should never delay a flight if the proper preventive maintenance had been performed. Very little info was given and there did not seem to be any concern by the pilot or flight attendants once the flight was boarded due to the delay. I was very relieved, however, when we arrived at JFK and AA had a point of contact helping folks with close flights. We originally had 3.5 hours to make our connection to BWI, but due to the delay, had less than an hour to go thru Passport control, rescreening and entry to the terminal, but we made it. Thank you for the personal representative. I did not get her name, but she was very, very helpful."
Pros: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."
Pros: "They offered pretty decent food and snack options that were included in the flight- the high quality chocolate ice cream was an especially nice touch as well as the included wine. My seat appeared to have more space than the flight previous to it, so that added a lot more comfort without the extra expense of having to pay for the "more space" seating- I often feel like airlines nickel and dime you to death these days. Perhaps it was just the luck of the draw, but the seats had much more legroom than my first flight to Paris as opposed to the return to NY. The flight crew were all courteous and pleasant. Leather seating with readily available pillows and blankets for all was a nice touch as well."
Cons: "Having to use communal screens for watching movies and shows, having no choice as to what was displayed, having trouble seeing everything displayed (too far and small to see nuance in dark scenes and print on screen), having only one bathroom mid plane."
Cons: "Trying to make any changes to the booking or check in was horrible. Because this was booked through kayak, then through an agent, then ultimately an Iberia booking on a British Airways / American flight, it took about 5 rounds of phonecalls being passed to another company or another department to get anything done. Sure the flight was cheap, but 6 hours of phone calls to get anything done is unacceptable. The plane used for this flight is ancient. Very tired seating, and no seatback entertainment. One children's film shown on the central TV screen followed by old sitcoms....For a transatlintic flight, this is really poor."
Pros: "The movie selection was good, although it was in Italian. The drink selection was good. Thanks for the pillow and blanket."
Cons: "I began flying when airline attendants were called airline stewardesses. Their personality plus attitudes and attention to detail reflected on the overall image of the airline, and did not make me feel like a second rate citizen in a second class seat. I've noticed over the last decade-plus that this has changed. I've been rudely spoken to for reaching for a napkin off the cart as I was not given one with my drink. My elbow was hit by the cart as it moved from back to front of isle, and no apology followed. The garbage was collected moving back to front, so I had to get the attention of the attendant after she flew by me. I thoroughly researched the size of the suitcase required prior to flying, and bought a new one to meet the requirements. My suitcase did not fit on American Airlines. Why am I bringing up American Airline? When getting to the airport in Milan, Italy, 2 1/2 hours prior to flight departure, I approached the British Airway counter. As no one was there, I proceeded to believe I was too early, so I had breakfast. I again approached the British Airway counter and still no one was there. On my way to the bathroom, I found the flight board and followed the directions. I searched for British airlines at the gate I was directed to, but was unable to find it. I asked an attendant, and I was directed to the American Airline gate. It was very confusing. It would have been nice if there was a sign at the British Airways counter directing its customers to American Airlines."
Pros: "I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin."
Cons: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"
Pros: "Flights on time and entire flight was a good experience for my 18 years old son to a first flight on his own."
Cons: "Maybe a better food choices"
Pros: "The entertainment and food on the flight were excellent and the crew were kind and attentive."
Cons: "The only thing I didn't like was that there wasn't much legroom in the economy section. Another problem - which is probably related to Heathrow airport and outside of the crew's control - was that the staff at the airport rushed us tremendously during boarding, saying that the flight would close half an hour in advance. I had never seen boarding close that early and it was very frustrating, because the boarding then took a very long time, since they searched us for no reason, and our flight ended up taking off 30 minutes late! As passengers, we felt very rushed, it seems, for no reason."
Cons: "This had to have been among the worst flights I have ever experienced in 50+ years of flying to 86 countries. First, an e-mail before I left my Paris apt that it would be 1 hr late departing. THEN the announcement ON BOARD that the flight would make a REFUELING stop in Bangor Maine (the eqpt was a 20 yr old 757 meant for a medium-range domestic route instead of Paris-NY). So it was FOUR HOURS LATE arriving, including an extra hour on the ground in Bangor because they'd lost their landing slot (tho they lied about "bad weather" at JFK) ... a succession of lies and incompetence. Headphone jack didn't even work at the seat ... the movie was a US film dubbed into French anyway! Gawd what incompetence. A letter Fedexed to Doug Parker, AA's CEO, was not even acknowledged.... and I do 35,000 air miles a year on AA. THE WORST."
Cons: "The staff was rude not helpful and mean worst crew I've ever seen and I fly alot"
Pros: "THis was an ok flight. Everything was on time and the crew was hreat. On the other hand, the food was terrible and the check in process was not expedite at all. The American Airlines crew did not know how to handle my G4 visa while checking in and they neglected to mark my bag with the orange ribbon signaling platinum status in American. This is key to getting your luggae faster in baggage claim when you have a short connection (I had less than two hours). This omission caused my suitcase to arrive last, and I had to run to make it to my next flight."
Cons: "States above"
Cons: "Airline throughout mentioned connecting flight passengers are okay as the flight will land almost at the scheduled arrival time but once onboard bluntly announced that we don't have further information. This is cheating"
Pros: "The meals were excellent -- well timed distribution of food throughout the flight. Attentive staff. Good choices for meals and beverages. I liked the fact that we got ice cream halfway through the flight also, that's not a very common thing! Entertainment system was very good -- lots of choices of things to watch/listen to! I was pleased to find that there were movies available that had been very recently released that I had been wanting to see!"
Cons: "Comfort was okay, my seat was on the end of a row with three seats (aisle side) and immediately behind me was a row with only two seats. Without fail, the flight attendants bumped their carts into my chair EVERY time they passed. If I had been trying to sleep, this would be much more of a disturbance to me. Seeing as I was just watching movies and enjoying the food, it wasn't that much of an issue. However, I think it would be easy for the flight attendants to just take a second longer to try to navigate around the chair and not bump it every time. Little things like that go a long way, especially on a long flight."
Pros: "nothing. seriously I have NOTHING good to say about this trip"
Cons: "We boarded or flight just a few minutes late initially then had to taxi back to the gate to fix AC(?!) electrical issues, which were seemingly fixed just as we started to de-plane. Then after a slew of nonsense announcements about waiting for a new pilot, redirecting the destination, and basically misinformation about reboarding, we are told that the flight MIGHT be canceled; It has been nothing but one excuse after another and honestly after a 4 hour delay with no real answers, I really cannot find any reason to fly this airline ever again. Such poor service."
Cons: "When I booked the flight, I hadn't realized that British Airlways had contracted the flight out to be operated by American Airlines. The flight was delayed in Paris and I ended up missing my connecting flight through JFK to DC. Though we were told on the plane that we would be given assistance upon landing and helped in an expedited manner through customs, instead I was briefly informed I had missed my connecting flight, handed an envelope, and told I needed to now travel to Laguardia Airport. No other information or assistance was provided. I was not given a reason why I needed to travel an hour in NYC traffic to switch airports nor was I given any help through customs. The shuttle I was told to take was unable to take me to the correct terminal, so I needed to get on a secondary shuttle. Again, after a 7 hour international flight, little assistance or aid was provided. I was barely able to make it through security in time to catch the new flight. Additionally, the actual flight from Paris to JFK lacked basic in-flight entertainment that almost any international flight would have. I will not be traveling on American Airlines again, and I am hopeful that Kayak and BA will be more clear in the future."
Pros: "It got me home in one piece."
Cons: "The flight was delayed after some passengers began boarding. The boarding process was also all over the place. When i finally got on the plane, the seats were very uncomfortable and I felt like a sardine being crammed into a small tin. the crew was at best, mediocre and boring. The in flight snack was two crappy pieces of cookie? Or was that a cracker? I did not eat it. The entertainment was one shared screen that I did not have a headset for, nor was I offered a headset, free or for a fee. The screen in front of me was too close and the screen behind that was further away and barely able to see it. I choose not to watch it for these reasons. The landing was rough at the end, everyone jolted forward when we hit the ground."
Pros: "For the price I got my ticket for. This was a good deal. I paid extra to upgrade to main cabin extra but well worth it."
Cons: "Got food and drinks and beer at nomadditional cost"
Pros: "Appreciated the staff acommodated me with an aisle seat."
Cons: "Had worse return flight experience. The flight was supposed to depart at 10am. While everyone was boarded, we were told the airplane missing a part. All of us had to wait for 2 and half hours for the crew to tell us that the part was in London. Thus, the flight had to be canceled. Then we waited to pick up our luggages from 12:30pm to nearly 4pm in order to get transported to a 40- minute drive away Hotel. I was starving because I didn't have breakfast as I tried to catch my flight and no food was provided during the waiting time. Plus, the entire day was wasted. Oh well, at least we were provided accommodation for the overnight, 2:40am breakfast, 4am airport shuttle, and 8am flight to get to our destination next day."
Pros: "not a lot"
Cons: "flights were re-scheduled and therefore had to travel a day early causing overnight expenses in NY. Re-scheduled flight was also delayed by an hour!"
Cons: "it was not clear that finnair was being operated by american airlines. when I arrived to the airport in Paris, they couldn't locate my flight on finairr or american. my flight was missed and the staff on both airlines (finnair and partner american airline) were soo unhelpful. I have never missed a flight, I travel for work, in the air, more than on the ground and this was the WORST experience I have ever had. I was super disappointed that even after all the mistakes, no one would help me find a new flight and I had to pay for another one. Even after calling finnair several times and pleading for some answers or help."
Pros: "I suppose the food / wine was okay."
Cons: "The plane was one of the oldest I have been on in years. The center aisle overhead bins were not even big enough for luggage and there was one TV every 5 or so rows. We were at the mercy of the crappy movies American Airlines chose for us. Most flights these days have individual entertainment and at a minimum room for luggage. The plane was old, dirty and not up to date. Never flying American again. Extremely disappointed with the service on the flight, as well. A little more than halfway through the flight, the woman in the row next to me began reading the airline magazine. Her window shade was up and the sunlight caused a horrible glare on the magazine pages that beamed like a laser over everyone near by. My friend seated next to me and I both have extreme sensitivity to light that causes migraines. I asked the woman to close her shade which at first she did about an inch or two. This didn't do anything to help the glare so I asked again and she refused to do anything more. I explained it was giving us migraines and she didn't seem to care. I asked the flight attendant to help navigate the situation, which was just as useless. She said she could ask but not force her to close her window shade. While I understand that AA can't control that some people can be selfish, I find it incredibly hard to believe that the crew can't intervene when a passengers actions are making other people physically ill. Our only other option was to be relegated to the last row, next to the crews stinking pile of garbage that had been accumulating for the first five hours of the trip. Almost every crew member we interacted with was completely apathetic to the situation. We spent the rest of flight nauseous and with splitting headaches. But I sure hope my row mate and fellow human being in 32A enjoyed the article about the dinosaur flea market in Bolivia This entire situation could have been mediated by the flight attendants who chose to disengage. Furthermore, when we were deceding to land, overhead bins were still open, and people were starting to stand up to gather their belongings in the overhead bins. Again, the apathetic flight attendants were no where to be found. Overall, disappointing experience. Glad to never have to fly them again."
Pros: "The crew were excellent and very professional. It was not a full flight and boarding was quick and easy. We landed almost an hour early. When we made the reservation we were told it was an 8 hour and 50 minute flight but we got there in 7 hours and 45 minutes, more than 1 hour early. It would be good to know the real timing so that meetings could be planned in a timely way."
Cons: "This is a code share with American Airlines and an American Airlines plane and crew and it is an out of date plane. There were no individual screens only 1 screen hanging down every five or six seats. The seats are very, very narrow. The cleanliness of the tray tables were gooey and full of crusted dirt as were the seat areas in front of the tray tables. I was told that they fly an even older plane from Europe to NY, which is an old one aisle plane. Not sure why AA continues to use such out of date planes but if they use planes from the 1980's it seems to me that they should charge 1980 prices!"
Fue un viaje desagradable debido a su retraso.
Cons: "Telling the truth"
Cons: "Over 2 hours delayed for no notable reason"
Pros: "Very fast and efficient"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 3 hours, also the personal at Newark airport was a little bit harsh and not very helpful, I do not care about any compensation, nevertheless the personal has to treat better to the clients"
Cons: "I have a carry on bag. & when I was boarding the bag was checked because there wasn’t enough overhead room. I was in back of plane & there was plenty of room. I think you should be more careful about space deciditions. I bought specific luggage so I would’ve to check it!!!"
Pros: "We were actually a few minutes early. No complaints."
Pros: "Went smoothly"
Cons: "Miserable seats. Inadequate overhead storage - I was forced to put my only carry on, a day pack, under my seat making the small seat and foot room even more uncomfortable."
Pros: "Decent Crew! Good in flight beverage service and comfortable seats"
Cons: "I wasn't able to check-in from my phone ( United is stuck in 1980's) Forced me to use Ticket Kiosk at Airport. Wouldn't print out a boarding pass and wanted ticketing agent to verify my luggage. I had an empty backpack and a small laptop case, she told me only one piece allowed, seriously?? She made me put my laptop in my backpack and the carrying case as well. The boarding pass didn't assign a seat to me and told me that I have to get another boarding pass at gate.. Simply unacceptable. I am a frequent flyer with Frontier and Spirit pirit, thanks to those Airlines which never treated me bad and gave me hassle like United did. No more United for me ever. WiFi was advertised but never worked inspite of me wanting to pay for it."
Pros: "I guess the flight was ok. The pilot knew where he was going"
Cons: "It can't be true that they have not even a small blanket for someone who kindly ask and then when the flight is over you see them every where and unopened in first class. Pretzels,... Seriously..???. These airlines are n need of a real policy that lets them know it is money we are expending when we take a flight. And taking the carry-on bag. AFTER YOU PAID TO HABE IT WITH YOU?? Unacceptable. And not seating people together after you call and re call and talk to 3 different persons... The last one just says: I will see what can be done and then ignores you... Not NICE. Please remember that many airlines have come and go. Those are some of the reasons."
Pros: "The crew was very swift in resolving the issue and getting us on another aircraft."
Cons: "Hated that we had to unboard for something as simple as radio/printer connection. I had other arrangements at the time I was supposed to land."
Cons: "No leg room so very crammed uncomfortable seating"
Cons: "The lady at the counter for checking the bags at newark was not rude but not very friendly. She could have done better if she was not that serious. Besides that everything was good."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for man hours. First Class cabin was a disgrace - old seats, no padding, plane appeared dirty."
Cons: "Stuck on the runway for 25 min. And then after took another 20 minutes because they could not open the door to get into the airport from the plane to deplane. The staff was rude when boarding"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2+ hours because of the crew. Wouldn't it make sense that if the flight was scheduled to depart at a certain time, 5 minutes before that, still no crew, let the passengers know then? No. Not if you're United. They told us to wait 20 minutes, then after 30 minutes told us about the delay and the New departure time. But when that time arrived, still no Captain. Finally, after another 15 minutes, we're on the way. Except not quite. Now, they can't get the weight and logistics of the flight worked out. C'mon United, get it together!!"
Pros: "I loved the fact I didn't get beat up and dragged off the flight"

Pros: "Very normal. The crew was professional."
Cons: "Our seta were separated by two rows."
Pros: "That we arrived alive."
Cons: "We weren't allowed to put our carryons in the overhead. We were forced to put them under the seat in front of us because the plane was full. This left no place for our feet or stretching our legs. The seats were cramped so closely together, our knees touched the seat pocket in front of us. When putting down the tray table, it pressed against our stomachs. The landing was the worst and scariest one I've experienced in over 40 yrs of frequent flying. We hit so fast and hard that the plane teetered from one wheel to the other and fish tailed so hard that people's necks were hurt. If possible, I'll never fly United again."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Pros: "I had 2 awesome flight attendants, Scott and Rico. They were friendly and I talked to them for a bit. I think that they didn't have to help me with what I needed, they just smiled and said yes. I didn't have anyone in the middle seat, so I had plenty of room. I was very comfortable and had a good flight."

Pros: "The snacks were good"
Cons: "That they took my take in luggage & had me put it aside to out in the belly of the plane. I had my laptop & iPad in there. It happened so fast I didn't think to take them out. I was planning to do some work on the plane but couldn't since u took my laptop. Also, they changed the gate and no one told us. We were lucky we asked a question to find out the gate had been changed."
Pros: "Left right on time."
Cons: "To be fair, this is my third flight of the day, so I am very tired and this was the smallest aircraft of the trip."

Pros: "It left on time and arrived earlt"
Cons: "I was seated in a window seat and another woman my size about 110 pounds was seated in the aisle however there was a 400+ pound man sitting in a middle seat which made it very difficult for me especially to even sit back because it was touching me the whole time when you have somebody of that size You should make sure they are on and I'll because then the find attendance would have some difficulty getting through instead of your passengers being inconvenienced either that or force people of that size to take two seats"
Cons: "I ended up changing my flight in Newark airport to Fort Lauderdale that landed earlier that the one they gave me up in Scraton.."
Pros: "We got there."
Cons: "Airport was horrible! Security line was 45 min. long and on the other side of the world. The plane was an hour late! No snow. No storms. Why? The crew, I guess tired, seemed bothered by the company of the passengers. The line to wait at the gate was very unorganized and confusing. No one knew which line was for which gate and people where cutting into lines everywhere. The airlines should provide better guidance for its passengers. I was connecting from Germany with Lufthansa and wow what a difference in customer service."
