Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Lufthansa kept to the time schedule"
Cons: "At Frankfurt, the boarding gate was changed two times."
Cons: "Delays in Nice led to a narrow window for connection. More than ten people were left behind - doors practically closed in our faces - and Lufthansa was wholly unhelpful in rescheduling flights. Lines to speak with agents were absurd and then attendants had to take breaks instead of resolve issues. There were no solutions offered, only poor communication and an unwillingness to accommodate a significant number of customers who were inconvenienced. Finally, a "random inspection" led to a handful of passengers being surveyed by the German local police. Interestingly, a number of us were Hispanic Americans. The whole experience was extremely negative."
Pros: "I enjoyed the crew, the space and and the food was ok"
Cons: "The movie And tv show selection could have been better."
Cons: "Seat changes were made after the fact. Seats are very small for such a large plane. I would not fly Lufthansa again."
Pros: "I always praised Lufthansa food, but this time we got chicken pasta, which was weird. Please bring back your normal option: chicken + puree."
Cons: "I don't expect good food, but found both served meals to be inedible. Confusing security situation at airport - multiple passport controls and at the final point there was only one check in line for all departing US flights. Since most of these flights left within an hour of each other it was bad news. Once again another chance to stand in line for way too long."
Pros: "Good services fro pilot and crew members"
Cons: "Baggage allowed in Nigeria with attendant are hostile to passengers Samuel Fadiya"
Pros: "An extremely professional, attentive staff and flight crew"
Cons: "The quality of food was pitiful, not to say gross, in the economy class. I'm comparing Lufthansa to other European airlines and to what Lufthansa used to be. Alcohol was of the most basic quality. Yes, I know, it was economy class, but it's gone down. Entertainment was hardly better. No new movies and the variety of what was available was poor. Lastly, the choice of seats in the tail (of 747-8) was poor judgment on my part. We were being wagged like fleas on the dog's tail. The only good part was that due to the narrowing of the plane we had two seats and no neighbor to jump over, plus extra room between the window seat and the window. The end of highlights. Can't help but compare every airline to Turkish airlines, where even in the economy class they make you feel like royalty. These people know how to do hospitality and make you want to come to their country."
Pros: "crew was very polite & attentive; relatively comfortable even though the flight was packed; free cognac after dinner, even in economy class!"
Cons: "some of the food was only so-so, but still not bad"
Cons: "Luftansa gives up and goes out of business."
Pros: "Due to unforeseen circumstances, I needed assistance with boarding. I attempted to ask the check in agent at the boarding gate and she was extremely rude to me as well as other passengers. The assistant's behavior displayed annoyance and an unwillingness to assist passengers."
Cons: "obvious crew disapproval when walking up and down the aisles to keep lively one year old entertained and from crying!"
Pros: "Lots of great choices in movies and music; good food; great service"
Pros: "Food could be a lot better and the selection I chose was not available. Leg room was limited. Layover for the connection was very long."
Cons: "Staff was very courteous, flight"
Cons: "27 hours of delay. Nobody cared about our booking. Almost no service counters open. Worst airline service ever"
Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "I thought lying while smiling went out of the airline business 20 years ago. Lufthansa rebooked my husband and I - telling us all would be well. That was the start of one of the worst travel days ever - running through airports; and culminating the end of an anniversary trip with my husband and I having to sit separately in center seats for 8.5 hours. Perhaps spoiled food or the lack of the pre-ordered gluten-free meals left one of us ill for the week since. Days of headaches with Lufthansa leading up to these two flights - online, on the phone and in person. We ended up on a full United flight with some of the most humorless in-flight staff ever."
Cons: "It took over three hours for them to unload our baggage. Completely unacceptable. Terrible coordination and planning with the Dulles baggage handlers."
Pros: "Crews on all flights were very good."
Cons: "This is an overall review of all flights we took this time. Food served in Economy on the international flight FROM US was terrible, and just a little better on all other flights that we took this time. But i noticed that food served on international destinations FROM US on any airline is terrible in general. Space between the seats is limited, very uncomfortable even for a petite woman. Child meals are too sweet, my kids ended up eating my salads, and part of my meal, because they didn't like their food. On the flight from US, kid's meal had 3 chocolate bars on top of other sweet things, which is too much. Give kids fruit bowl instead. I will not order child meal again."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "My suitcase did not arrive with me at Dulles. It should come today."
Pros: "Service was great , flight attendant very courteous"
Pros: "it was nice trip from Lufthansa. only the issue was with the space between the seats in the economy class but rest was fine"
Pros: "Good food."
Pros: "Why am I getting this email. I am not this person taking this trip..I'm frustrated with this ...I talked to the the airline already numerous times and still I am getting emails from Lufthansa and kayak."
Cons: "crowded plane unfrindly staff no choice of meals long wait on board"
Cons: "Seats too small."
Pros: "Cleanliness. Crew members were up and doing. Very efficient."
Cons: "Food needs an upgrade."
Pros: "Great crew, food was good, smooth flight, enough leg room."
Cons: "Very tight connection and a long distance between gates. Advising customers of this in advance would be helpful."
Pros: "Smooth fly with a great crew"
Pros: "The attendant showed concern and promised to report, great attitude"
Cons: "I was surprised that my meal request was not passed to the airlines"
Pros: "Food was delicious, service was amazing"
Pros: "Very attentive flight attendants -- esp. liked the frequent offerings of juice and water; wine with meal was also appreciated. I will fly Lufthansa again!"
Cons: "For evening flight from DC to Frankfurt, I would have liked meal served a bit earlier so that we could have longer opportunity to nap before arrival."
Pros: "Watching movies. The plane model seems to be a bit larger. First time when I saw stairs to the second floor. It felt more spacious. I really enjoyed that."
Cons: "Nothing to complain. Thank you for providing great experience :)"
Pros: "The seating under normal circumstances would be reasonably good, even for economy.. Because a larger-than-usual plane was needed in DC, a 747-800 was dispatched, and there was a lot of empty space, so many of us could spread out and sleep well. Even allowing for the very light passenger load, the crew was excellent in every way."
Cons: "No criticisms at all."
Pros: "The plane was not too full and sitting in economy plus was quite comfortable on this long flight. The food was good and served often. Lots of drinks were offered with plenty of water available all during the trip. Nice blankets and pillows were on each seat."
Cons: "My only complaint was the quality of the sound and picture for the TV system. Thankfully I had a book on my iPad."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "Landing was very rocky."
Pros: "I was impressed by the entertainment selection in economy. Also they always had a vegetarian meal for me. The crew on the flight team were always super professional & very pleasant. I enjoyed my flights more because of them."
Cons: "Flight was a bit delayed because the plane wasn't ready."
Cons: "About five pieces of souvenir pottery were lost because somebody who checked the luggage forgot to wrap them back the way they were. It was a sloppy work maybe by customs or security but i hold you responsible since i had booked my flight with Lufthansa sincerely Ioannis Stratakis"
Pros: "Helpful crew"
Cons: "United operates old planes between Washington Dulles and German destinations."
Pros: "The services on the plane was great."
Cons: "Movie selection could improve."
Pros: "I take this flight quite often and actually look forward to it. The food is excellent (especially from Germany to U.S.), the seats remarkably comfortable—although tight, the flight attendants efficient and friendly. Drinks are served generously. No nickel-and-diming, unlike other airlines. The best part is the entertainment system which offers a huge range of movies (very recent blockbusters to classics, in all sorts of languages) on a user-friendly system. Bring your own headphones with a dual-prong adapter, and you will enjoy your flight."
Pros: "The food was good and I enjoyed the selection of movies"
Cons: "However I've never seen such a rude staff that is so blatantly willing to ignore economy class. While I understand that economy class isn't accompanied with as many perks, it would be nice to have had at least one flight attendant whose job was to care for the masses. Poorly designed plane, rude people, terrible flight."
Pros: "The food, comfort and very good costumer services"
Cons: "Movies very short selection"
Pros: "As always with Lufthansa everything went really smooth and timely. I also got my vegan meal which was quite good and the seats seem wider and with more legroom than on other airlines. The crew was very pleasant and attentive."
Pros: "Crew was great. I was traveling with 2 young kids and it was great experience."
Cons: "I don't like that nobody contacted me yet about my demaged luggage."
Cons: "overlay duration is too bad ....its takes 30hrs instead of 19hrs journey"
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful"
Cons: "They layover was by far the worst."
Cons: "Canceled flight."
Cons: "the pizza I had to pay for was cold, soggy, and dreadfully tasteless"
Cons: "Didn't even know there was a ticket of this type. It was a good price, but when I went to check in on the return flight I was charged ~ $95 for a luggage item. Not a bad trick. On the other hand, not very nice either. They also didn't allow to take the guitar on-board due to a short & full flight saying the above part was too small. When I got on however, there was clearly room there. It could have been human error, but still disappointing nonetheless. They said there would be no track so it should safe, which it was, but it was left out in the rain for a minute or two so the soft case was somewhat wet. I don't think any permanent damage occurred."
Pros: "We got there on time. Pretty average flight."
Cons: "No meal is served on an international flight. Not even a snack of pretzels etc. I found it a little offensive to not have a complimentary snack or meal for a nighttime international flight."
Cons: "Very expensive options for food. Poor entertainment choices. Make you pay for everything."
Pros: "Route great and faster than going through London."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic with everyone boarding at once and not by row."
Pros: "the plane waited for late connecting flights (including mine)"
Pros: "Fast boarding, the info learned about iceland and the stopover plan"
Cons: "Lack of space and food was not included on 6+ hr flights. Selection was limited"
Pros: "Customer service was amazing. Always smiling and making sure I had everything I needed for a comfortable flight"
Cons: "Lost my luggage on my arrival to Germany. It was however delivered to my place of stay two days later which was fast!"
Pros: "2 free checked bags, nice flight attendants"
Cons: "The food was over priced for the portion that was given and we left 30 minutes late"
Pros: "cost of ticket"
Cons: "hate to think what it would be like making the connections in the winter! Iceland is called Iceland for a reason."
Pros: "They give you toys and food for you children at no extra cost. In flight entertainment was good for adults and kids for no cost."
Cons: "Older aircraft: poor cooling, dry air, relatively uncomfortable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed AFTER we boarded and were taxi-ing the runway. We had to deboard and wait 3 hours until the plane was ready. It really interrupted my travel schedule once I landed in Washington DC. The airline didn't even offer us food vouchers or anything while we waited."
Pros: "Crew was excellent! Nice experience in economy"
Cons: "Really a surprisingly low quality airline."
Cons: "Lost my luggage. Contact number does not work. Complete frustration. Recommend carry-on only"
Pros: "Personal entertainment screen."
Cons: "Old movies on the entertainment choices. Limited music choices - mostly songs and artists that are unknown."
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so we had a modicum of comfort."
Cons: "Airport again a big headache."
Pros: "Crew were polite"
Cons: "The Rejkyavik airport is too small. People were sitting on the floor. No drinking fountains to refill a bottle. Boarding was a mess. Plane was late and then we waited even longer for a passenger. No meal offered. Under-seat space too small for a small bag. All ads, ads, ads, all the time."
Pros: "The cleanliness and comfort of the plane as well as digital devices."
Cons: "The plane was 30 minutes late boarding passengers so we lost our place in line for takeoff, resulting in a 60 minute delay meaning nearly missing our connection to Boston. There was no information given either by the captain or the crew and finally, a barely audible apology at the end of the flight."
Cons: "Keflavik Airport, where all transfers are done, is a MESS. There are too few jetways, so you wind up waiting for a BUS to take you to the terminal in the COLD. Once through immigration, you are dumped directly in to the DUTY FREE SHOP that you can NOT avoid. Imagine being late for your next flight, and having to steer your carry on baggage around crowded store isles! Then, you manage to find your gate...which is an effort in itself, as there are few signs...and there is ONE agent checking boarding passes of this massive crowd that is not lined up at ALL. Once in the air, Iceland Air performs well. But on the ground, it is nothing less than a MESS."
Pros: "Superb employees from the moment of contact on the phone."
Cons: "Not enough choices of music or movies. Poor quantity, quality, variety of food."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "unconcerned crew members only one cashier at the food counter in the airport long inefficient lines"
Pros: "Attentive stewardesses They made sure we were hydrated, .Lots to buy: Easter candies, creams, etc. Even though it was the day of thr terrorist attacks in Brussels and there were some delays because of security, the staff made us feel safe and comfortable."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and efficient. One checked bag included."
Cons: "As on every flight, the seats were too small and cramped. No snack, earbuds, or beverage had to pay for everything on board AFTER paying for a very expensive ticket."
Cons: "I know that Keflavik airport was undergoing construction, but there has to be a better way to get people prepared to board than putting them in a long line, which leads to a tram, which leads to the plane. People should board the tram in the same order they'd board a flight to reduce disorganization. Also, people who have like 5 carryons REALLY should have to check some baggage. A man in the row ahead of me would have taken up a full overhead bin plus part of a second bin if I hadn't told him that would be unfair to other passengers."
Pros: "I love the beautiful interior lighting, the more spacious seating, and the free in-flight entertainment! Icelandair also has a separate area off Frankfurt international which was much cleaner and nicer."
Cons: "No potable water in the Frankfurt terminal."
Cons: "No complimentary items except water (no sodas or small snack). Entertainment selection was minimal."
Cons: "Expect to pay for everything, except water. Will never fly them again. Refused to cancel flight until hours before even though the airport was closed. Messed up my vacation."
Cons: "I have flown into and out of Reykjavik at least 6 six times in 2015 and the boarding process is always chaos with other flights boarding in very close proximity. There are times when I and other people are not sure which queue to be in."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Liked the Northern Lights show. Check-in, boarding was super smooth, as was changing planes and getting through passport control in Iceland. My plane came in 20 minute late, and I only had 20 minutes to make my connecting flight, which waited for me - amazing!!! Thank you."
Cons: "I would like to see more vegetarian meal options, other than asking for the salad w/o meat."
Pros: "I Enjoyed the flight and loved the Northern Lights on the plane; however it would of been nice to get a meal or at least a snack."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, I've flown quite a bit and I've found Icelandair to have the friendliest crew around."
Cons: "Flew economy/cheap seats while I was upgraded on the flight to Iceland it didn't happen on the way stateside, I'm not complaining about that but the economy seats are extremely narrow and the cushions feel like half the padding in economy comfort class. I'm 6'2" weigh 215 lbs and by the time the flight ended I was extremely stiff and my legs were half asleep due to the confined space. If you fly fly economy comfort seats are wider, better padded and you board earlier."
Cons: "The screen didnt work."
Cons: "The screen worked but the headphones did not."
Cons: "Check-in took over 30 min not counting standing in line, as the person at the counter did not know how to enter the necessary docs for travel to the US properly, i.e., green card information. She did not try to get help from a colleague until 25 minutes into trying to get it figured out herself... On top of everything else, the baggage tag printer at her station failed."
Cons: "They did not provide any free food or snacks on a 6.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Small Plane, not as conformable as flight with Lufthansa. Will use Lufthansa n the future. The reason I choose Icelander was the Price."
Pros: "The plane was new looking and clean. Price of ticket was cheapest around. Food I had to purchase was good tasting."
Cons: "* Lack of announcements as to what was happening: ticketing, ticket lines, boarding, meals, etc. Rude counter and gate employees. Poor coordination and crowd control/line control. * Cramped seating...though the seats looked brand-new. * Small monitors with limited selection compared to other airlines. * Only food or drink included in ticket was a small bottle of water. All else, pay up. This looks like an airline that is trying to enter market and gain share by offering low prices but is not up to the challenge of giving adequate service, particularly at ticketing, check-in and at gate when they succeed in luring passengers in with the low price. I am not likely to fly Icelandair again unless I am desperate for low-priced ticket, which is not often the case, thank goodness. Try harder Icelandair and maybe you will make it. Work on the ground-based service because it is lacking."
Pros: "I liked everything about the flight except that there was no food offered on the flight."
Pros: "Crew were great, movie/TV selection was small but pretty good, plane itself was relatively new and fine. Had a traditional Icelandic Christmas beverage as one of the choices, and played Icelandic Christmas songs during boarding and arrival!"
Cons: "Didn't have blankets for every passenger this time - had to go find one."
Pros: "I had a connection from Frankfurt to Seattle with a 45 minute layover in Reykjavik, my Frankfurt leg was delayed and it was later in the day so there was no way for me to make it to Seattle on time. At first they offered to put me up and Frankfurt, which I wasn't too happy about. I then asked them if I could take my delayed flight to Frankfurt and then just stay in Reykjavik for the night and take my original flight home, just the next day. To my surprise they said yes. Their service in Reykjavik was just phenomenal. I was greeted at the gate by an attendant who gave me the choice of staying in Keflavik (the town next to the airport) or in Reykjavik itself which is 30 miles from the airport. They put me up in a fancy 4 star hotel on the harbor in Reykjavik, covered my taxi rides (120 dollars each way) and my meals (costing about 100 dollars total for dinner, breakfast, and lunch. I could not have asked for a better layover experience!"
Cons: "As usual for Iceland Air flights, meals aren't included. I love flying them because their service is great and their flights are affordable...but I still hate having to decide whether to fork over 20 dollars just for a meal. I'd rather have it included in the ticket price. The other annoying part of my flight was with the desk service at Frankfurt Airport. When our flight was delayed, we had to exit past security, go out to the main terminal and wait in a slow-moving line for our flights to be re-booked, hotels to be arranged, and baggage to be arranged etc. While the service team was very friendly and helpful, they were very poorly organized. It seemed like different agents were constantly having to move around and get approvals from other agents while some agents were just sitting around only signing an occasional expense form. I was waiting in line for almost an hour with just ten people in front of me! I feel like the line would have gone twice as fast if they worked a bit to eliminate bottlenecks!"
Pros: "oh the leg room was fantastic! friendly helpful crew! usb plug to charge your phone was great! smooth flight."
Cons: "no free food! limited vegan menu, only one item and it still cost $19.00 without the chicken. was not warned that there was no video screen in the emergency exit row. very cold by the emergency exit door but the crew provided many warm blankets."
Pros: "This airline is one of the best."
Pros: "Best flight I had in years"
Pros: "great flight. great staff."
Pros: "Price was reasonable"
Cons: "No snacks, staff was not very helpful"
Cons: "About all"
Cons: "Left Washington two hours late. Left London on return 45 minutes late."
Pros: "The crew members were pleasant an helpful."
Cons: "The seats are very hard so I sat on the pillow provided and put something behind my back."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and polite."
Cons: "- The boarding at Heathrow gate B44 was horrendous. This is my third experience at the B gates, all terrible! The long wait to board coupled with the lack of sufficient seats for people needing assistance, topped off by cold air from the AC blasting you right in the face. - The plane at boarding time was an oven! Someone didn't want to or forgot to turn the AC on. It tool at least over an hour to make it comfortable. - The entertainment choices are very limited and the screens don't work well."
Pros: "On time, great entertainment, friendly crew, good food, complementary ice cream:)"
Cons: "Absolutely no leg room and I am regular woman passenger. It was really uncomfortable for the 2 tall young men to my left and right."
Pros: "I liked that they had a veggie option for food for dinner service."
Cons: "I didn't like the British Airways terminal at Heathrow - everything was automated. There was no human interaction and the ground staff was scarce therefore it was difficult to ask any questions."
Pros: "Despite a four hour delay the staff was in good spirits and generally pleasant. The entertainment selections were also comprehensive."
Cons: "The food choices were very limited (chicken curry or pasta alfredo) neither of which were dairy free."
Pros: "On flight entertainment"
Cons: "After we boarded, there was an announcement stating that there was an issue with one of the wings. So we sat for an hour and a half in an extremely warm plane while they fixed the problem."
Cons: "One hour delay due to equipment failure. they loaded us and closed the door to hit hit the "on time" mark but then made us sit on the plane for the fix. There is no way the failure was discovered after loading. Usually the seats are ok, this one was the sardine plane, very tight. We were on the bulkhead seat (more room) but the entertainment screens were all yucky."
Pros: "Short, yet pleasant flight. Great crew!"
Cons: "Honestly, I can't complain. Small issues with preferred seat."
Pros: "Seats to close. To small. When reclined they impact the seat behind more then they should. I carried my wifes carry on and they tried to place a yellow sticker on the second one saying it could not go in the overhead and would have to be placed under the seat or checkedm. Never believed it was my wifes Very aggraviting"
Cons: "Offer larger seats like United Airlines. For a few dollars you can upgrade economy to economy plus which offere 6 inches more leg room."
Pros: "Great service on plane"
Cons: "A lot of stress: our 1st leg IAD to Dublin was cancelled, than we got 2 set of tickets rebooked. On the way back there was a stress since we had a "problem with the ticket" Apparently the Aer Lingus made all those mistakes. In London I was told to go to the end of line 2 times, the BA employee was olaying really weird games. Pretty annoying."
Pros: "The food was very good, and the entertainment selection was good."
Cons: "I'm a small person, and I found the seats too narrow and there was so little leg room."
Cons: "Delayed and poor food"
Pros: "Crew very accommodating and friendly. Also the ground crew were very friendly."
Cons: "Seat spacing much too cramped."
Pros: "friendly staff, decent food"
Cons: "seats weren't particularly comfortable, the side bolsters on the economy seats are a little too aggressively tall"
Pros: "Food and drink service was good and without additional cost and crew was very cordial and attentive.In flight entertainment with good amount of choices. On time and better than most in comfort in Economy. Toilets were clean and with all needed."
Cons: "Would like to see more two seats row choices rather than three."
Cons: "The in-flight entertainment had issues about an hour and a half into the 8 hour flight. The crew reset individual seats with no improvement. They made any announcement asking people to stop hitting the call button about it because they were aware of the problem and said that if there was no improvement they would reset the entire plane's entertainment system which they never did. Therefore, we did not have any functioning entertainment for the remaining 6.5 hours of the flight."
Cons: "Rude staff, messy service, lack of information and communication"
Cons: "British Airways lost my bag TO Europe, I was without it for 2 days, AND they lost it on my way BACK. I will never fly this airline ever again. Who loses a person's bag TWICE?? ON THE SAME TRIP?? Beyond that they treated me with such discontent, it was like they didn't even care."
Cons: "Flight was 3 hr delayed, seats were uncomfortable, flight was oversold and could not seat next to spouse even though we booked well in advance."
Pros: "The flight was fine..."
Cons: "But Dulles Airport needs to control the level of toxicity experienced when certain entitled passengers think they have to pack the tarmac shuttle under NO PARTICULAR AUTHORITY, shouting "MOVE BACK [YOU] PEOPLE" into the closest ear. There should be someone other than the driver on those shuttles monitoring people, since they obviously need a babysitter."
Pros: "British Airways makes you pay extra to pick your seat The alternative is to take the luck of the draw and hope you don't get the middle on the center aisle Kind of annoying"
Pros: "Crew service"
Cons: "Ancient plane. Terrible seats. No space or padding. Horrid entertainment system from 15 yrs ago, dysfunctional. Definitely one of my worse experiences flying back and I do this leg 10-15 per year. Boarding was oddly disorganized for a BA flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for 1.5 hours"
Cons: "person in seat reclined and their seat hit my knees and was uncomfortable"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. Very poor organisation. Lack of communication. Our rights were not explained to us and no information material was made available. No reason was given for the cancellation. The flight was rescheduled to the morning at 7am and then again rescheduled at noon. Still to be seen..."
Pros: "Crew was okay. Boarding was okay."
Cons: "Food was not great. Snack was a candy bar? No other options in back of the plane. Entertainment cut out and the system was difficult to operate and movie variety was not wonderful."
Pros: "We flew on an enormous double-decker Airbus that was equipped with an entertainment system that offered dozens of movies, TV shows, and other entertainment to keep the entire family occupied for the length of the flight. We could also charge our phones and other electronic devices from our seats. The flight attendants were all very nice and the food was fine. The distance between the rows in coach was comfortable, even for a 6' tall person. It was a great flight!"
Cons: "One of our bags did not make the connecting flight from Rome but it was delivered to our house the next day, so in the end it was fine!"
Pros: "Archibald Elba"
Pros: "The BA crew were great."
Cons: "I paid $ 2,100 for a IAD-LHR-NCE return, on short notice, in high season which I think is very expensive; a family emergency left me with no choice other than a cheaper Turkish Airlines alternative through Isranbul which, given recent events, I thought to be unwise. My main complaint is with economy seating which I find very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight crew were all very courteous and helpful throughout the entire flight. They made the entire trip as comfortable as possible."
Cons: "The plane was parked not at the terminal, but far away. The one hour delay occurs because of 300 passenger transportation from and to the plane. This delay could be avoided if terminal services were more responsible. I always thought that the United provides the worst food in economy class. It appeared that BA food is even worse. The entertainment software was obsolete and delivered an image of a very bad quality."
Cons: "The food expired the day we were on the flight- I ate the chicken salad sandwich and I was sick on the flight and the rest of the evening home. My sister who are the same sandwich was sick also."
Pros: "The crew was excellent!"
Cons: "The arrangements by Kayak did not allow me to make my connections on time. I missed the connection from Heathrow to Manchester. And only made the connection from Manchester to Heathrow because I was escorted in a wheelchair."
Pros: "The plane was clean, the flight was smooth, and the staff was friendly."
Cons: "Too little leg room and too little incline in Economy seats. Food mediocre."
Cons: "My flight was delayed at the last minute and had to sit in the Heathrow Airport for 4-5 hours and remain seated another 7-8 hours once finally boarding at another gate opposite other end of airport. Upon arrival to Dulles International and clearing customs/immigrations and finally making it out to claim my baggage my luggage was deemed lost and never made the flight to Dulles. To this day, I still do not have my luggage with my belongings containing Rx, clothing, shoes, souvineers, etc. Needless to say, I am very upset let alone extremely inconvienced."
Pros: "The food was half decent, and the entertainment program was good"
Cons: "First flight was late causing me to miss my connecting flight. Then they not only forget my bags in London, but then give my seat to someone else on the second flight. Instead of being apologetic in any way, they just ship me to a crappy, tiny seat at the back of the plane. Arrive in Sydney to find they had forgotten to put my bags on the flight, and, despite there being the possibility for them to be aware of this in Singapore, they didn't even have to decency to tell me this had occurred. Despite other customers being told that their bags were missing. All in all, not happy with my experience, and to be honest, I'm dreading my return flight with them"
Pros: "Entertainment and crew were good"
Cons: "We booked our flight three months ago and my friend was bumped from the flight since they overbooked. They were still selling tickets up until the flight. They didn't ask for volunteers but somehow picked her. When I asked if I could stay with her, I was told that I would have to buy a new ticket for the other flight. Also they were very rude while explaining it. Not impressed. Also the flight was delayed because they didn't start boarding on time and then we sat on the runway for about 30 min."
Pros: "Comfort, excellent customer service and care. Everyone smiled way to goo"
Pros: "Good movie selection, food tasted alright."
Cons: "My entertainment screen was malfunctioning, the crew was somewhat robotic and not very accomodating, and the large snack was served right before landing--so we had to wolf down the food and it made me feel sick to my stomach."
Pros: "One of the crew members, a flight attendant, was really a blessing in the way she cared for the passengers and had such a sunny and sweet smile and personality toward everyone she served. Was really thankful she was on our flight."
Pros: "Excellent staff; great meal; nice variety of entertainment."
Pros: "The crew was excellent and the seating was comfortable."
Cons: "For a large part of the flight the in-seat entertainment didn't work, making for a poor experience for the first half of the flight. The crew was eventually able to get the entertainment working again so kudos to them for that."
Pros: "The flight got us home"
Cons: "American Airlines, which ran the flight as B.A.'s partner, didn't give any reason for the on-ground delay, and acted as if we all should have expected to be an hour and a half late leaving the terminal. They offered very little information and didn't really care that we were so late leaving."
Pros: "I took an earlier flight from Washington Dulles and it was very cramped. This Air Bus was much more comfortable. The seat was softer, and wider."
Cons: "However, the rude person in front of me put his seat all the way back from the beginning of the flight and it was VERY tight. I was hoping he would out it back up a little, but to no avail. I don't think the seat needed to be back so far. Maybe it should be mentioned in the videos we see at the beginning of the flight?"
Pros: "Flight was on time , the service was excellent . I enjoyed the flight ."
Pros: "Professional crew."
Cons: "Tight seating. Inability to choose seats prior to check-in without paying."
Pros: "Best pilot ever. Could hardly tell wheels touched down on the runway."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and crew was very helpful!"
Cons: "Be on time!"
Cons: "Baggage lost."
Cons: "I'm a tall person and there wasn't an option to get a seat with any extra leg room. Additionally, the gate staff were not helpful or informative about the flight and rushed when it was time to board."
Pros: "The free entertainment."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Ease of boarding with the group numbers"
Cons: "The captain had the crew return to their seats during drink service due to turbulence. Despite the fact that there was 2 and half hours remaining in the flight and the turbulence was gone, they never returned to complete the drink service."
Pros: "Very courteous crew.pilot was amazing!! Landed in tough wind"
Cons: "Never knew flying domestically with a company named American would be so impossible. A true joke. Never had such difficulties traveling about. Super unsatisfiee and will not be traveling with them again. I urge everyone considering to purchase other airlines as well."
Pros: "The flight attendant was super super nice and helpful"
Cons: "Had to rush to catch this connecting flight. At boarding time, which we just made, the previous flight had just landed and people starting to deplane. All we would have wanted was an accurate announcement versus an unfriendly feeling from the gate agent"
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!"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled. I didn't receive a refund or free hotel accommodations. I've been on flights in Africa where free hotel accommodations were standard for a layover over 3 hours. A little embarrassing that an airline in America can't afford a hotel for people stranded in a city overnight."
Cons: "We were rushed onto the plane to sit on the tarmac. After waiting to take off for 45 minutes, we were told that our route had been closed and they were looking into other options. This was a flight from NYC to DC, route is closed? Once we finally got into the air, all was good."
Cons: "ATC delay on take off and then a 10 min wait for a gate a DCA. Just disappointing in adding delays."
Pros: "Pulled from get on time. Short hold on runway. Easy landing."
Cons: "Still arriving in Washington where we have no gate. Being on time stinks because you still sit on runway. AT the destination. I would focus on quicker turn around and less accommodation of highly variable flight times in tight NE corridor"
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac after landing for 40+ minutes."
Pros: "Very professional. Overall great. WiFi was free. Very fast. Left 3 minutes early and arrived 17 minutes early."
Cons: "Made me reprint my boarding pass. Bad food. No outlets. No in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Great free Wi-Fi with a variety of movies to watch. Helpful, friendly crew."
Cons: "They could've fed us or least gave us more drinks when we were rerouted and stick in the Norfolk airport for hours."
Cons: "Plane from BDL was delayed which led do a missed connection in DCA. Rebooked on the 335 pm flight which is 3 hours later than my original arrival time. Very inconvenient for me as I had previous plans."
Pros: "Good view"
Cons: "Breakfast does not have good things to eat. Too cheap ones.."
Cons: "When the pilot took off at LGA he said "everyone here is trying to take off at the same time" so we'd be delayed by 30 min. Not once was there a mention of any other reason. By the time we got to DC I had JUST missed my connecting flight. It was listed nowhere on the departures screen and I realized I had to take an outdoor bus to the other half of the "c" terminal which was very confusing. I got there and had missed the connecting flight and stand in line for 20 min for someone to tell me that I would be stuck in DC overnight. At this point rain had started pouring and they told me that because my mishap was due to weather they would provide no meal or hotel voucher. Weather was not the issue and I was stuck in DC overnight by myself and not compensated for hotels or meals."
Pros: "The crew was good."
Cons: "Washington airport grounded our flight for no apparent reason while we were on the runway in Indy about to take off, then didn't tell us when we could expect the delay to end."
Pros: "Flight was late. Sat on Tarmac for 30 minutes at end of flight with no gate to exit."
Cons: "Was initially told there would be a 2 hour delay because of weather, as the sun beamed down and announced this 2 minutes prior to boarding. Ticket agent at the gate desk was less then helpful, " I don't know what to tell you Sir""
Pros: "The American Airlines crew was very friendly but completely clueless about the details of the delay, our connection and the connecting airport."
Cons: "The American Airlines staff assured us that if we got stuck in DC we would receive hotel vouchers. Not only did we not receive hotel vouchers but we were denied access to our rescheduled flight the next day and forced to rent a car to get us from DC to Massachusetts in time for our event. This "misunderstanding" cost us 2 days of our trip and an additional $500 all together. I have never been more disappointed by an airline in all my years of travel! If we'd been told the truth from the beginning we would of rescheduled the flight for the following day from our original destination and saved ourselves 2 headaches and a ton of money."
Pros: "Very polite and professional flight staff."
Cons: "Had to reschedule to a later flight."
Pros: "I like your update e-mail. Every thing was so perfect. Good luck in your business(: Sincerely, Parvin Haji-Djafari"
Cons: "Three hours late leaving, and we waited at Dca for a gate for over an hour."
Pros: "All of Americans staff members and crew we're professional and courteous! All flights were prompted and on schedule."
Pros: "Everythingit was good"
Cons: "$75 to pay to change the time of flight, is a lot of money for a person who has roundtrip tickets on the same da"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and on-time. Very nice crew."
Cons: "Seats are not that comfortable, in-flight snack leave something to be desired, price is too high. But whatever, this is what flying is these days."
Cons: "They cancelled our flight three times and would not try to give us a direct flight. We ended up booking a whole new flight with Jet Blue!!!"
Pros: "A newer plane."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for more than 40 mins."
Pros: "Plane took off and landed at the exact time Seats plenty a room ."
Cons: "My first flight was cancelled on Sunday. I was rebooked for Tuesday morning, and then thay flight was cancelled too. I was told there were no more flights to DC until Saturday, which was totally unacceptable for me. I got on standby to a flight to Philadelphia but had to rent a $220 rental car in order to get home at a reasonable time."
Pros: "The flight was pretty standard. No food, of course, and kind of subpar entertainment. But, the crew was fine and boarding was fine."
Cons: "We circled for awhile, not American's fault, but it didn't make for a more pleasant flight especially in the cramped seats that American's planes have."
Pros: "Seat was comfortable and crew were friendly. Flying experience was OK."
Cons: "Status was not recognized - as an EXP traveling in Economy, no snack provided. Agent at Admirals Club in Chicago wasn't aware that transcon flight I had later in the day provided for lounge access."
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding. Would've liked to picked my seat beforehand"
Cons: "7 hours late departure for the flight to be diverted to another airport. To get home I had to drive two hours from the diverted airport to DCA where I was headed. Along the way the crew was great, but American is run by someone who does not care about customer service. I won't be flying with American anymore."
Pros: "2 hour flight and a 3 hour layover was ok break in-between flights chance to get food."
Pros: "It was actually to Philly, because AA cancelled my original connecting flight out of DC."
Cons: "On the flight back home, AA cancelled my connecting flight, and did not bother to notify me, even though I have my account set up for them to notify me of flight changes. If not for the Kayak app on my phone, I would have flown to an airport where I may well have been stranded for hours, if not the following day, for a flight that no longer existed, since I had already checked-in on-line and would have gone directly to my first flight. Thanks to flight status monitoring by Kayak, I got an email from Kayak telling me that the flight was cancelled before I left for the airport so that I could go to an AA desk. They were particularly unhelpful and uninformed, and it was only sheer luck that I was able to get on the first flight I was on stand-by. I know this sounds like a commercial, but put the Kayak app on your smartphone and don't travel without it. AA will quite happily leave you stranded without it!"
Cons: "Now that American has completed their takeover of US Air, they have downgraded the planes on the CHS/DCA route to crappy little Canadair regional jets. Boarding/disembarking at DCA is via bus at the dreaded cattlecar gate 35X. What was a pleasant flight experience on US Air is now something to dread. Fortunately, Jet Blue also flies this route with full size planes and boarding gates."
Pros: "The flight itself was uneventful, but I was extremely dissatisfied having to reschedule 2 flights on very short notice"
Cons: "I had a 3 leg trip: Seattle to NY to DC to Seattle. First my early morning non-stop flight from Seattle to NY was cancelled around 5 PM the previous day. I was able to get on another flight with one stop and was stuck in middle seats for both flights - although I had paid for a premium seat on the nonstop flight that was cancelled. Then I got notified around noon that my 5:15 PM flight from NY to DC that day was cancelled. American left me a voice mail that they had automatically rebooked me for the following day without checking to see if that worked for me - despite that fact that they had other same day flights available! I was able to rearrange my schedule and get on an earlier flight - but was extremely unhappy with the short notice, and their assumption that I would be fine getting in the next day!"
Pros: "I arrived safely. No ill-behaved passengers."
Cons: "Cannot get seat assignments on line. "Sorry!" says the message. Late take-off from BDL. Gate attendant doesn't like answering questions and could be friendlier. Having to check roller planeside. Would prefer a larger plane. Plane could have been cleaner. Delay at DCA while waiting for jetway. Couldn't robots move the jetways to the planes?"
Cons: "Overall the flight was great. I was carrying a suit in a hanging bag and asked the flight attendant in first class if there was a place I could hang it. She politely offered to hang it behind the last row of first class since none were in use. When getting off the plane, I grabbed my bag as I walked off and the other flight attendant said "you can't put your bag there, it isn't for you" to which I replied that I was told I could use the hanger. She then said "well you shouldn't have been given permission, and don't do it again, it isn't for you." The tone was a bit rude, and maybe the consistency should be reviewed."
Pros: "I didn't fly American to Melbourne. I flew American to LA then flew Qantas to Melbourne. I would never fly and American owned are line to Australia again. They are just not as good at it as Qantas"
Cons: "No snack, but did get drink."
Cons: "The seats"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Very little room amongst the seats. Tiny armrests and little room to move in your seat without disturbing the neighbor. No entertainment"
Cons: "If kayak didn’t take me to a page where the reservation was different than what I agreed on. Not even close to what I had selected, leading me to believe I was booking a trip on the days I chose and then not realizing it was incorrect until my trip was starting. This is the last time I use kayak."
Cons: "Not only was the flight hours late but there was practically no communication what was going on and what to expect."
Pros: "The crew was really nice. They were friendly and genuine."
Pros: "Reasonably comfortable seat"

Cons: "Everything was wonderful"
Pros: "Entertainment was ok, had holl rodarte options and good variety"
Cons: "Seats are hard, no leg space, no elbow space, the upright is 90degrees. The crew is not helpful, to the point and act like they are doing you a favor by being there. In one instance the attendant told a passenger "you can move your bag, or I will move it for you." To another passenger, without prev"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "There was a terrible stench, like that of a dead animal, near where we sat that did not let us enjoy the flight. The seats were too crowded."
Pros: "Clean and friendly crew."
Cons: "No food or drink and a single checked bag was extra money."
Cons: "Phone chargers did not function"
Pros: "The crew was amazing.The seats weren't bad but not super comfortable."

Cons: "uncomfortable and cramp seats very low quality food Alcohol had to be purchased! Are you serious? This is an international flight!!!"
Pros: "Finnair landed their plane so smoothly...."
Pros: "Left on time."
Cons: "Plane is extremely old and should be put to sleep. Business class on this plane means younger an empty middle seat and narrow standard seats. Not worth it for business, check airplane model before you book."
Pros: "Relatively cheap flight"
Cons: "Zero legroom. My legs were in aisle."
Pros: "Airport was spacious and gate area/aircraft clean"

Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "I requested a vegan meal weeks prior and the only meal without meat had a lot of dairy in it. Not enough water was offered as well. The flight was delayed boarding. The leg room is pitiful on the flight."

Pros: "On time to madrid... late to Alicante"
Cons: "Personal video screen froze and didnt work...chicken meal was too salty. Britisk airways cancelled our return transatlantic flight LGW to JFK and the Iberia (one world) representative Alicante airport could not help us getting on another flight we now are landing in LGW and have to transfer to LHR at iour own expense and are getting to J FK almost 4 hour later than scheduled...spenrt over 40 minutes on phone with British airways at international cell phone rates which also cost us a fortune"
Pros: "The plane, food and entertainment were satisfactory."
Cons: "Outbound flight TO Paris was cancelled."

Pros: "it was very comfortable, extremely good service, good food, amazing entertainment( good movies, series and games)"
Cons: "it was perfect"
Pros: "Considering my flight was from Tenerife to NY even though they stopped in Madrid they could have given us at least a bottle or glass of water without charging for it. No TV so not the greatest flight. Staff not very helpful at airport to accommodate a seat change to be able to sit with family."
Pros: "Fine for what you paid for"
Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"
Pros: "Good Entertainment, ."
Cons: "Iberia Airlines The flight attendants on the Iberia section of the flight from Madrid to Chicago could have cared less. The plane was late and the crew could have cared less. They fasten seat belt sign was on way way too long with no turbulence so they did not have to open the bar. They would not serve vodka from the cart and you needed to go to the back of the aircraft for it. Will not fly Iberia again. ."

Cons: "Rather boring meals Poor flight-following software"
Pros: "Plane and crew"

Cons: "They kept delaying the flight and then cancelled. I had to take uber to Penn Station and then AmTrack to Union Station. Otherwise I would not have gotten back until over 24 hours later the next day. So, in the end I had to spend over $200 more to get home. I really have never had a good experience flying Iberia."
