Pros: "Great selection of movies and tv shows"
Cons: "I had to ask for everything. Crew members kept passing me by for food service and drink service even though I was awake. I had to tap/call them each time they passed by. It turned into a joke among me and the people sitting next to me. Entertainment screen is too dim even on highest brightness setting"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "No food selection, USB ports didn't work, passenger who didn't want to sit in her assigned center seat created a fuss and I ended up voluntarily moving to another seat. Center seats are really tight, elbows are in the way of all passengers and if you are average height you have to turn your legs at angle to sit which infringes on other passengers' spaces. very uncomfortable. Aisle next to me is so small."
Cons: "Without internet"
Cons: "They cancelled our flight without informing us from Doha to Miami, so they were going to fly us to Doha at 3 a.m., take us to hotel, and then have us fly the next day. This was the third time this airlines cancelled a flight on us for the same trip. The first two times were traveling from Miami to Delhi, we had to change our itinerary because they cancelled the flight, and we had to fly on different dates. This caused a series of hotel changes and cancellations costing us a lot of money. On the flight that we finally got from Doha to JFK, the man sitting next to me SMELLED LIFE THE FUNK OF 40,000 YEARS. It is unbearable. Thirteen hours of pungent body odor that even the flight attendants acknowledged was horrific. It was a miserable experience flying with this airline for what was to be the trip of a lifetime."
Pros: "Great flights. Lots of room in economy, which is needed for a 14 hour flight. Also excellent personal entertainment system in the seat. This was my first flight on Qatar airlines. I will definitely book on Qatar again."
Cons: "No Chinese food to choose"
Pros: "The attendants were very courteous"
Cons: "The seats were too cramped."
Pros: "Crew polite and efficient."
Cons: "Boarding process non-existent. Huge queue of 80+ people. Seats average comfort. Food bland. No entertainment other than on the overhead displays. Will avoid flying with this type of plane / flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, i had only 2 hours connection in Chicago for an international flight, they asked passengers to NOT panic and do not ask if they didn't call a passenger name. They will call passengers who would miss thier connection for accommodation otherwise you are safe. Unfortunately I didt ask since they didn't call me, when I reached the gate from Chicago, it was closed."
Pros: "every thing was good bout only test of kook food was not good."
Pros: "Overall, it was a good flight. The seats are comfy. DWC airport has free parking."
Cons: "They announced on the plane that everyone on the plane could use the fast track immigration. And there was a special line for the Dubai Doha shuttle flight which I was on. But they didn't let me use it since I didn't have a "stamp" on my ticket. Nobody on our plane had a stamp or whatever..."
Cons: "Quality of the food could be improved, connecting flights had same meals"
Pros: "Its a neat airline."
Cons: "Its is a little bit of a generic in service at Qatar airways. Qatar airport personnal treat non white people with some what discriminatory behavior. I mean Qatris have an attitude towards other than white or qatris. Very sad to see that."

Cons: "Plane was delayed 6 hours- not AA fault but could have compensated by providing some food without charge"
Cons: "This flight, along with the bulk of AA flights, were cancelled, leaving me stranded and missing work meetings."
Cons: "Many of the crew members seem as if they hated their jobs. I hesitate asking them anything."
Cons: "Staff friendliness. Not forever late. Not losing kids stroller"
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Pros: "leg room"
Cons: "paid for a window seat, got no window. The map on the website dictated a window and exit row. This was not the case. This flight is always late. Waiting on baggage in Midland takes 30+ minutes"
Cons: "Entertainment is bad, there is not enough headset to the passengers, half way through the plane, the hostess is already out of earphone. I have to watch silent movies just like the old days. How can that happen"
Pros: "Convenient without problems"
Cons: "They forgot to plan a pilot....also the crew was 45 min late"
Pros: "Busy but kind stewardesses"
Cons: "Please offer another snack option besides carboard flavored pretzels."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No one knew what was going on. We boarded late, then sat there for 40 minutes with no communication, then we had to de-plane. But they couldn't get the jet way to work, so it took forever."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 times. Little knowledge from front desk, relied on my phone for updated info."
Cons: "Some turbulence"
Cons: "Taxied for two hours, then returned for fuel and discovered an engine problem. Had to change aircraft. No food or entertainment system."
Cons: "I didn’t like to have 4 stops and so many hours of layover between all of my trips I will never ever buy a trip with a travel agency it is so complicated to make a change and they want to charge you about 5,000 dollars for a change! awfull!!! waitress from miami to london was not so nice."
Pros: "Boarding has been fast, food and entertainment were very good."
Cons: "Surprised to see they charge $50 carry on fees at the gate."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "Left a tiny bit late but not a big deal really"
Pros: "would never have made my connection"
Pros: "great flight! THank You"
Pros: "The free movies were a generous provision. The American Airlines ad was cool. The screen to trace the flight geographically was neat, as were the details about height, temperature, time until landing, and so forth. The service people were nice."
Cons: "The space under the seats on the floor has gotten very small."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the entertainment selections in the screen on the seat back were great, loved that there was more than one outlet for plugging in devices to charge, the sunset/sunrise lighting effect was really near"
Cons: "I honestly cannot come up with something that I did not lie"
Pros: "Plane was not full so more space. Original seat whilst legroom was plentiful the aircraft hull made the seating experience cramped. Poor interior space design. Entertainment excellent helped me concentrate on work. Left late but made up time in the air given arrival time this was good."
Cons: "Food especially snack was absolutely dreadful. Cabin staff were polite but have done one too many transatlantic flights and the process whilst polite is a transaction. The customer is not special."
Cons: "Equipment malfunction at 11 pm is always really nice."
Pros: "Great movie/entertainment selections and the food was very tasty."
Cons: "The limitation on available hardware that is compatible with the GoGo app prevented us from enjoying the available entertainment."
Pros: "Uneventful and on time"
Pros: "Great crew. Friendly and reaponsive. Easy boarding."
Cons: "4 hour flight from SFO to Charlotte. No food beyond snacks. No entertainemt options. No electrical outlets."
Pros: "It was largely an uneventful flight. The point was that they did their part getting us to the destination. It was a good flight."
Cons: "We did not use the entertainment system as it did not have any English subtitled movies so we did not use it."
Cons: "We did not get on this flight because AA's scheduled it 90 minutes after landing from an Int'l flight. Why don't airlines schedule a minimum 3hours between Int'l-domestic connections. half the plane was stressing and freaking out about missing their connection even though the plane landed on time. "AA is not responsible for customs/security delays". Well, your customer service agents would have a lot less work if you didn't have to reschedule 100 people per flight. The time the plane drives/parks at the gate, you get off the plane and make it through customs, get your bag, recheck it (if need be, we didn't this time though), get through security and get to your gate, you'll be the luckiest person in the world to do that in less than 90 minutes."
Cons: "In January, we booked a 5:40pm fight through Kayak to Barcelona. July 7th, the day before our flight kayak sent us an email with a different time. Apparently, this flight had been dropped and completely changed to 5 hours later on February 2nd. Kayak didn't care to tell us until the day before. We ended up having to book a new connecting flight which cost us $250. Ive always booked with kayak and now I fear I will never again. I would like a refund for the $250 or a flight stipend. My name is sarah chambers"
Pros: "The crew was great and getting 2 meals was very nice."
Cons: "My headphone jack kept malfunctioning (loud popping noises in my earbuds) while watching the movie and all the reading lights came on and stayed on the majority of the flight so sleeping was difficult."
Cons: "Frankfurt was rebooked by AA to PHL connecting to LGA. LGA leg was cancelled. They wanted us to take a flight to LGA the next day. We got ticketed to DCA connecting to LGA same day. Finally arrived home after 18 hours of travel. NOT HAPPY. We don't blame AA for weather cancellation but it was not an easy trip home."
Pros: "Small snack and drink included. Free checked bags."
Cons: "Very few drink choices. Flight was cancelled mid-air, so we were returned from the air above Cusco to the Lima airport where there were no other flights departing that evening and no compensation for the inconvencience (no hostel voucher, no upgraded tickets on our next flight, etc). Many people ended up missing their long-planned trip to Machu Picchu as the earliest Avianca could get anyone to Cusco was 11:00 the following morning. The staff was unhelpful, and the lines were incredibly long (about 3 hours). Funnily enough, we were supposed to be on an earlier flight, but due to the length of their check in line, we waited over a half hour in line and when we arrived at the desk 56 minutes before our flight, we were unable to check in (since check in stops an hour before the flight). Truly ridiculous. I will definitely think twice before ever booking an Avianca flight in the future."
Pros: "The quality of aircraft"
Cons: "The service lacked any sort of empathy. The crew on this flight especially the African American lady, I think are in the wrong profession. Didn't care at all. Seemed miserable."
Cons: "Flight has to stop over to refuel (unplanned on a "non-stop" flight). TV entertainment was bad, inappropropriate and boring. Personal entertainment monitor did not work for the first leg of the flight. Got to final destination 2hrs after schedule. No food for international flight, even considering an additional 2hrs on top of the 6.5 hr flight."
Pros: "The crew kept us informed as to why we didn''t leave the gate on time; they served beverages and snacks in an efficient manner. Once we got to Dallas we were early, he made up time in the air and the captain informed us that the gate was not ready to receive the plane. We waited about 15 minutes and then we got to the gate."
Cons: "The parking garage is confusing, but worth the extra money to park there."
Pros: "Entrtainment and food."
Cons: "Crew service and attention very poor. Terrible experience with flight reconnection for me and my group of 5 people. Had to wait 5 hours for the crew to confirm ticketing, w.e were lied to and watched how others got preference before us. Crew gave us inconsistent explanations and had no knowledge of how to solve the problem."
Pros: "Porque sus tripulantes y azafatas son super atentas"
Cons: "Missed the connection in CLT to BTR even though flight status on AA's website indicated that it was delayed enough so that I could make the connection. Ended up spending the night in a cold-assed airport with minimal comfort. I was already confirmed on this flight and AA knew, or should've known, that I was enroute. Not pleased at all."
Cons: "The flight was operated by American Eagle, on a small regional commuter jet. We had to board from the tarmac and climb a steep flight of stairs to board. Not advisable for anyone with limited mobility."
