Top 5 airlines serving Glasgow Intl to Sacramento Intl
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Seats comfortable. Food was good."

Pros: "Super friendly and helpful crew, food etc was fantastic very enjoyable flight. Thank you"

Cons: "Nothing. Trip both ways were outstanding."
Pros: "Sharp good atention in counter"
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"
Pros: "Pilot was great— we don’t thank them enough for a smooth and safe arrival. Plane was great. Ammenities were given (such as ear plugs etc)"
Cons: "Crew members are a bit bland and lack customer service, but I noticed that as a whole in Australia (slow service/not really interactive or communicative & very quick to make comments and leave) not sure if they just hate Americans based on the media or what. One crew member cut in line at the restroom when there was 3 of us waiting to go. Another told me my husband couldn’t receive his meal because he was napping and then he quickly walked away— Yet i received mine on the flight coming to Australia when my husband asked for me? Sanitation between flights should be more strict-my headphones were opened which lead me to believe my pillow wasn’t changed either, since one had a case and one didn’t."
Cons: "Bathrooms needed more cleaning mid-flight."
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic offers good service at a reasonable price to/from the US to London. Good food service and unbelieveable number of movies and entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "The seating and leg room in economy classic were inadequate. We felt way too confined in our seats and the leg room was a joke. I am only 6' tall and this was unacceptable. We will try to upgrade for the return trip."
Pros: "The food was okay"
Cons: "The gate was Jane without announcement"
Pros: "The boarding, the seats."
Cons: "The food was so-so, and I did not get my choices, perhaps because I was at the back."

Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."
Pros: "love the lounge and easy check in and boarding, great attendants and smooth trip"
Cons: "would be nice if lounge was open earlier - arrived for 8:30am flight and had to wait around in freezing cold terminal with no coffee for an hour"
Pros: "Plane was about 30% full so plenty of room to stretch out. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight left 50 minutes late because they'd lost the paperwork and had to get new copies.... not very professional! I can understand a delay due to weather or technical issues but losing paperwork shouldn't happen. The food portion was very small for an international flight."
Pros: "Nothing really!"
Cons: "I was coming from Sydney and I have to hurry up to take the other fly to Newark and didn’t have time to buy for nothing to eat but I was very surprised they didn’t offer me anything on the plane and when I ask they I have buy it online and didn’t have many choices anyway, I very disappointed with this fly."
Pros: "Free everything...food, wine, spirits, movies, etc. Nice crew!"

Pros: "Very polite and helpful staff."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Flight was quite comfortable. Nice attention to service"

Cons: "The seats are a bit uncomfortable for such long flights. Crue was excellent"
Pros: "Fast check in Fast security line Upper Class Clubhouse Fast boarding Excellent onboard service Great crew"
Cons: "Old entertainment system Although the seats can be turned into a bed they don't fully recline"
Pros: "I was very impressed by the generosity you show concerning food och drink. the staff was kind and glad."
Cons: "I never understood how to connect the earphones to the screen so I couldn't ser any movie. But - I could have asked the staff of course ..."
Pros: "Quantity of food was less for the dinner time..but overall experience was good.."
Pros: "I wish I knew the name of the crew on this flight so that credit is given where it's due. A female steward was incredibly kind to me. She allowed me space to cry in the back of the aircraft, and also gave me her personal tissues. Her care is the only reason I'd give this flight an 'okay.'"
Cons: "Unlike the incredibly kind woman, another woman on the crew was incredibly rude to me and to other passengers on the plane. She was very obviously annoyed with nearly everything on that flight. The restrooms were beyond disgusting. I have never flown on a flight with a restroom that awful; it smelled horrible and was filthy. It was reminiscent of a portable outhouse, no exaggeration. The pillow on my seat had makeup on it."
Pros: "On time, comfortable (for Economy), friendly crew. Nine hour flight didn't feel that long."
Cons: "Entertainment system in our seats seemed pretty beat up. On one there was no sound, on the other not all the buttons on the control would respond when you pressed them."
Pros: "Just the food and boarding was fine."
Cons: "Everything else was bad. I think crew were a little rude!"
Pros: "nice new seats"
Cons: "The entre food top was torn, apparently opened before I got it, also there was no salad dressing. ATTN RICHARD BRANSON: Are you concerned for our environment? The head stewardess would not refill my sports water bottle after I asked her nicely, instead she poured water into a cup which she threw away, wasting plastic unnecessarily. I told her I did not like wasting plastic and she appeared to not enjoy what I had to say. This was the same lady who handed me my dinner. Rest of crew was great."
Pros: "Great direct flight. Quit on the plane. Plenty of time to rest and sleep"
Cons: "I couldn't rank the food or entertainment as I didn't try the food since it was for purchase only, and there was no entertainment offered."
Cons: "They tried checking my carryon luggage because they said it was overweight and it would be $130. This is absurd, especially since it isn't going to change in weight by getting checked. I refused to pay this amount. The flight was also 3 hours delayed, almost missed my connection back to the states from SYD. Other international flights offer free meal service, you were lucky if you got water on this flight and had to pay for any snacks."
Pros: "Easy check in and boarding."
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats and poor food."
Cons: "cabin was nice but cold"
Pros: "Seat Legroom Comfort Food Service Crew ... amazing!!!"

Pros: "Flight staff exceptionally friendly and helpful"
Cons: "More leg room always appreciated"
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled at the time I was standing in front of the airline counter to check my bag. I was so furious. The airline did not help me at ALL. In fact, they offer me to buy a brand new ticket at a new price!!!!!! I ended up re-bought the ticket from United airline as my husband has United card (chase) and we ended up paying over 1900 for the ticket that should have been about $911. The priceline number is not helping. I have trip insurance but no. nothing worked. I will never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "free wine, good food, and friendly cabin crew? what more could you want? oh, a good variety of entertainment. I watched two documentaries and "The Lobster" a great choice, never would have seen it otherwise."
Cons: "The seat cushions are really hard and not very comfortable to sit on for a long flight. If you could get a higher density foam that would be great. my bum was a bit sore/uncomfortable."
Pros: "Friendly service. Safe, on time flight."
Cons: "Chicken lunch was just so-so."
Pros: "Safe, uneventful flight. Everything was great!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and efficient. The flight got in slightly early. Baggage was swiftly delivered after our arrival."
Cons: "Very little legroom. I would have appreciated a small lunch item, beyond a tiny bag of almonds or two small cookies. But this is where we are these days with air travel."
Pros: "The crew was polite and professional. Boarding went very smoothly and the flight left on time. Baggage was very quick when we arrived in Seattle as it was already coming out when we arrived in the baggage claim area."
Cons: "I would have like to have been offered disinfectant wipes to use on the food tray. Otherwise it was a perfect experience."
Cons: "Better space. Better service. Terrible directions"
Pros: "Just ok"
Cons: "update the gate info correctly and immediately. I was directed by app to go B5A but actually it is B5 gate in SEA-TAC"

Cons: "The little individual TV screens are tough to see for older eyes."
Pros: "They didn’t want to help"
Pros: "What did you like? Decent meals, no charge for cocktails, blankets, pillows and head sets for everyone, friendly flight attendants, excellent entertainment options."

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and attentive. Smooth and comfortable flight."
Cons: "Seats are not as comfortable as usual, yet all flights seem to be getting worse regarding seat comfort. Time to start replacing."

Pros: "We got on we took off and arrived on schedule just as it should be."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The turbulence. Poor california git lits of smoke."

Cons: "Touch screen monitor was unable to register touch, so no entertainment available."
Cons: "Connection time was very short and arrival and departure gates were very far apart. The gate attendant at the arrival gate wasn’t very helpful or sympathetic."

Cons: "The worst flight I have ever been on. Sat on the plane for an hour before taking off with no AC"
Pros: "No air conditioning. Sat at the terminal in 95+weather, many elderly on the plane in hot weather. Attendants said oh well well at least your not in the back of the plane. Also intercom was set to blaring with a high pitched squealing sound."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly on this flight. No delays before, pleasant staff, great entertainment selection, okay food options, working equipment (e.g., tv in the headrest worked, seatbelts worked, lavatories were operational, etc.). This flight met all my expectations"
Cons: "The only hiccup was the wait time on the runway before take off. Not sure if that was the airport’s fault or the airline’s fault. We must have waited 45 minutes."
Cons: "Never took it!"
Pros: "Great overall flight, as expected in Delta’s first class."
Cons: "Boarding was a little confused. Crew was excellent as usual, but seemed to stop service in the last hour. Food was good, but they ran out of my preferred option. No screen entertainment, but access to entertainment was available via the WiFi."
Pros: "Crew was amazing , one patient was getting sick while flight and always to flight stewards where always outside bathroom to help her. And crew was still able to service whole plane of 200 passengers."
Cons: "My screen seat miniature work but headphone jack was messed up tried two cords and not working so could see movie could not hear so for 5hrs that’s what I did which made me focus more on comfort. Plane interior was or looked brand new."
Cons: "They cancelled my ticket and did not inform me. Horrible exlefywith JustFly.com Beware of this organization"
Pros: "Entertainment on first flight"
Cons: "Food, no smoking at Minneapolis airport"
Pros: "About 10-15 yrs ago I stopped transatlantic flights on Delta. It was a scruffy airline with uninterested cabin crew & not to talk of food etc. What a change! Neat clean A330, friendly crew & food + beverages to brag (you pay outrageous prices on 'leaner-meaner' airlines if at all available). Loved the whole experience. Flying is not only getting from A to B & Delta has realized it. Looking forward to my next Delta flight!"
Pros: "Was tired and the FA helped me find a row that I could stretch out on and relax. After a long trip from Moscow, the FA's volunteering to help and accommodate a beleaguered traveler was most appreciated!"
Cons: "For a 3 hour flight no onboard entertainment. Such a let down"
Pros: "Anna from South Africa was funny, and super accomidatinf"
Pros: "I was rerouted."
Cons: "No one would reissue me a ticket for the next flight. Delta and West Jet kept saying the other company should do this, and in the end no one did and I had to purchase another ticket."
Cons: "it stink inside the plane, the seats in front of us were dirty and smelled bad!"
Pros: "The flat bread pizza was good. The drink selections were good. The meals were terrible! Besides that, we had a great flight (13 hours)"

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. The Airbus plane has enough legroom for tall persons."
Pros: "Flight arrived early!!"
Pros: "Everyone was great"
Cons: "The arm rests on both flights where impossible to lift to get out of our seats, the headsets had a lot of static, the head rest was broke on one side, the food to Germany was fine but back was horrible. Within 20mins of take off you were out of most alcohol and the wine was horrible."
Pros: "Great experience"
Cons: "Kids yelling"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment (if you brought a tablet or laptop with you), yummy gluten free pretzels, good flight attendants."
Cons: "A complimentary sandwich would have been nice for a 4 hour flight."
Pros: "accommodating and friendly staff food and drinks were good -I had a layover that was boarding before we had reached the terminal and the staff let me know and guided me about how to get to the other flight and let the other flight crew know so I wouldn't lose my flight. Super appreciative of this. :)"
Cons: "cramped seating warm / poor air circulation super hot in the cabin - this is probably because of Salt Lake City, rather than the plane though."
Pros: "The gate agents and flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "We were not able to choose our seats until we got to the airport. Which was a waste of time since we did online check in but still needed to go to the self check for seat assignment. Then by that time it was too late to try to get a seat with my wife who is very afraid to fly. Overall not a good experience"
Pros: "I was able to do my check in and seat picking fast with no problem"
Cons: "A lot of the airport employees and staff negative and Grouchi mean attitude but does not take away nothing with the airline company staff very helpful and positive people"
Pros: "Clean, pretty roomy (Delta Comfort)"
Cons: "Couldn't get onto internet. Both my wife and I could not access internet. Might be platform thing as we have Apple devices; woman next to us seemed to have nomorobkem with PC."
Cons: "Overcrowded terminal, last minute gate changes, poor signage and confused staff."
Pros: "Daughter's first flight and the crew really made it a special experience for her."
Pros: "Short flight time"
Cons: "Delayed for 2 hours due flat tire. They should've checked tires before we boarded. Cabinets were almost full. I had a hard time to put my skateboard and backpack in a cabinet. Attendant didn't help out at all! It took over a minute to figure out to fit my stuff in there like Tetris. One passenger was upset that I took his bag out. It was frustrating when attendant didn't help to store my bag."
Pros: "Arrived sooner than expected! Nice, smooth flight despite cloudy, rainy day."
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Pros: "Nothing in particular stands out about our flight. We've flown many airlines, Aeroflot, British Air, Delta, Iceland Air and KLM recently. Lufthansa was right in there with the middlet of the pack, with the exception of Iceland Air, which would be at the bottom, but they make no pretenses. The seats, even in the basic economy, which we had,reclined and were comfortable; good legroom. Food and drink offerings were standard. Amounts were small, but everything was the right temperature. Restrooms were clean and well equipped. Movie offerings, not many newer releases. Nothing like Sky news, so you couldn't check weather or current events. Crew was courteous and attentive,"
Cons: "Boarding at Frankfort left much to be desired. First off, the equipment was not ready; we waited 45 min. to board after we got to the gate (early) and due to turbulence over the Atlantic, the pilots could not make up the time. We are senior citizens. We, along with about 25 others in our category, responded to the call for us to get in line to board, stand for 30 min. The gate personnel did not provide any information that boarding was NOT imminent at that point, so you had to stand up to keep your place. Finally, once the boarding for people needing assistance began, we got to choose between using 2 flights of stairs (a faster way to get into the plane) or an elevator to board the plane. (Hello! We have trouble with things like stairs; don't you know that?) The elevator accommodated one wheelchair and 2 or 3 people at a time. More waiting in the jetway to get down to the plane! The whole boarding process took 90 min. from the time we stood up to the time they closed the doors. Bad grades for the the cleaning crew making us wait so long, for the gate personnel for keeping us in the dark and the disorganized process boarding. Nobody cared about our discomfort, not what we would have expected from LH. Consequently, we've revised our opinion of Luthansa. Maybe next time we'll take BA."
Cons: "It’s an international flight. It is what it is!"
Pros: "A340-600 is a wonderful plane, but economy is too cramped. The stewards do their job of feeding the "cattle", which lacks any personal service."
Cons: "The terminal updates of terminal and gate notifications were wrong! If we had followed your email and gone to T3, we could have missed our flight and be worn out from changing terminals."
Cons: "No drinks on board"
Pros: "The food was really good! I don’t expect much from airlines but I feel like I got a real meal on board (two of them!)"
Cons: "We were delayed taking off and there were three screaming babies, but there’s only so much they can do about that."
Cons: "Light was delayed 3 hours. I had to wait 9 hours for a next plane to my final destination"
Pros: "Crew was professional and competent. Seats were roomy and comfortable."
Cons: "I have a hard time sleeping in any seat that doesn’t fully recline."
Pros: "The time between flights was good and the trip was very nice."
Cons: "Both trips were nice"
Cons: "Delay of more than two hours caused my booking at the hotel to be cancelled. Not only i lost all my money but have no hotel to stay What is your responsibility on that???"
Pros: "Flight crew and food was wonderful."
Cons: "It was a horrible experience. I was trying to check in a few hours before my flight, and my reservation just vanished. I was on the phone with VAYAMA twice, and both times they were extremely unhelpful and one of the times just very very rude! I will not be booking with Kayak again."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and attent ive"
Cons: "Delay cause sings uS to miSs oUr fliGh? ENT.ert.ainmrt wasn't good eitHer and way to cramped even for coach on that long of a fligh"
Pros: "It was a short, smooth flight"
Cons: "I had paid extra to pick seats and they were moved without informing me prior to the flight."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Is too hot in to the plane"
Pros: "The crew onboard the flight was very friendly and accommodating! They did their best with what they had. I also like that there were diabetic and vegetarian meals offered, although the diabetic meals should ideally focus on lower carbohydrate totals. Fruits and breads can pack just as much sugar as sweets."
Cons: "Starting with the boarding area at LAX, there was some really high pitched siren that kept going off over and over which no one seemed to care to investigate or do anything about. It was very irritating, and seemed to put lots of passengers in a bad mood before the plane even started boarding. Then when they announced boarding was beginning, everyone got up and created massed around creating four chaotic lines. It was a mess. We left 45 min late, which caused us to run to make our connecting flight because the person at the gate never told us it was also going to be leaving late. The plane itself was extremely uncomfortable as well. I'm 5'8" tall and that's mostly torso. I fit easily in the back seat of my buddy's mini Cooper, and I could barely fit in the space without my legs hitting the seat in front of me. That was before the guy in front of me put his seat back and made it so I could barely reach under my seat. Then there was the control panel for my personal video monitor. The panel was located on the armrest in just the right spot where Everytime I put my hand down I accidentally pressed a button to call the flight attendant, or turn the video screen on off, which was really obnoxious when I was trying to sleep and kept accidentally turning on the bright screen which woke me up. The video monitors we're also touch compatible, but the screen was horrible about registering finger presses which led to the lady in the seat behind me smashing the screen as hard as she could repeatedly with her finger, which vibrated all the was through my headrest so I could feel it as if she were trying to get my attention. There was also no air flow above the seats... You simply had to rely on the flight attendant to set a temperature that the whole cabin enjoyed, or you had to suffer silently. Finally, the reading lights on the plane we're so high up that turning one on lit up all the seats around you as well, which meant you had to choose to either sit in the dark and not read, or turn on your light and read quietly while the people around you cursed your name while attempting to get some rest."
Pros: "Very comfortable, amazing crew and service. Entertainment was very good with lots of options."
Pros: "The snack/ breakfast was not very good"
Cons: "Long flight"
Cons: "Delay in the arrival/departure of the flight, presumably due to the strike the day before."
Cons: "Boarding needs to be more organized"
Cons: "I didn’t like it because when I asked for a big water bottle, they refused to gove it to me while I am sick and suffer dry throat. The space is rather small. If you are 5ft 5 and above person, I honestly would suggest you buy extra legroom for comfortable purposes. Also, there is like 1 restroom on the whole plane and if you sot at the end, you are screw. Lets not forget that they delayed our flights like 4 hours and only gave us 1 voucher for snack. I don’t expect the experience will be fancy but this is a total disappointment!"
Pros: "See above. The same applies."
Cons: "See above. The same applies."
Pros: "Excellent service by amazing crew"
Cons: "Took off late."
Pros: "I travel in so many airline but lufthasen is very good airline i want to travel again"
Cons: "Flight cancelled. Stuck in airport for 24 hrd"
Pros: "Flight attendants were great, friendly, courteous and responsive. The relaxation and mediation program was great! Boarding was fluent and easy."
Cons: "No matter what you try to order on the airplane is totally disgusting. If it's not overloaded with cheese and tomato sauce then it's overcompensated with spices (salt or chili). I will never understand why it is so hard to provide simple, fresh and enjoyable meals. Chairs in economy are rarely cleaned up and one can see on the cushions that they are worn out and have lost their padding making the seats very uncomfortable. There was no foot rest available (which is such a simple addition that helps a lot) and the "holder pocket" on the seat in front was a simple net completely useless. Tables were dirty suggesting they were never cleaned and disinfected. Knowing that the highest source of viruses are the tray tables and the pockets in front I would expect attention to be focused on those- it not only impacts the health of the traveler but more important that of the crew. Why is it so hard to think of this business two fold: make revenue but mostly be kind to humans."
Pros: "My flight from Budapest took off hour later then scheduled. We landed in Munich only ten minutes before the international flight's take off to San Francisco. Upon the Munich landing, eight of us were escorted on a special bus, with a special pass controll and on special routs to make sure we get on the plane on time. Our laggage managed to get on the same plane as well. Thank you Lufthansa!"
Cons: "No difference between Business class and main cabin."
Cons: "Short flight so no entertainment provided or needed."
Pros: "The crew did a great job. It was a little slow to board and disembark but again I'm pretty sure it was the people."
Cons: "One of the crew members at the airport said I had to check my bag but a woman with a bigger bag went on the flight with out having to check her bag. The people flying to Cairo are horrible. Rude, disgusting, disorganized. Took forever to board and disembark the aircraft. If I didn't have to fly to Cairo for work I would never take this flight again in my life. Not much you can do as an airliner though, maybe just warn the tourists about the flight."
Pros: "Meals and service"
Cons: "Cramped seats"
Pros: "Ground Staff helpful. Cockpit pilots communicated effectively. Cabin staff was courteous."
Cons: "The wait prior to takeoff. Flight departed late. The gate counters at IGIA, New Delhi were allowing some passengers to pre-board early even though the passenger was not senior citizen or handicapped, or family with children. Food from New Delhi to Frankfurt was less than optimal in taste."
Pros: "The flight was on time enough that I comfortably got to my connecting flight. It was still late and some other passengers were anxious they wouldn't get theirs. The crew was nice."
Cons: "Business class seats were regular seats with the middle seat unused. The "meal" on this early flight (had to leave the house around 4:30am to get to it) was light. I'm glad I had the time to stop at the business lounge first. I don't recall any entertainment system, which isn't a big issue on this short flight."
Cons: "Missed connection along with about 25 others due to the delay getting to Lisbon (no reasons given)."
Cons: "Staff in Bayreuth was very good and excellent specialy miss Suzane Fakhri and mrs.Ahmad Jaber ,and the way the staff was excellent"
Pros: "in flight entertainment, bathrooms, and charging capability"
Cons: "Not enough service/availability of water"
Pros: "It was UA. Not Lufthansa."
Pros: "Very nice and caring crew."
Pros: "Great service."
Pros: "Aircraft crew and operations were excellent."
Cons: "My original itinerary was booked with Airfare.com with a 93 minute layover at ORD, subsequently abbreviated to 40 minutes. Despite my repeated requests, neither Airfare.com nor United nor Lufthansa were willing to adjust my consequent itinerary to correct that conspicuous deficiency. Instead, both United and Lufthansa representatives repeatedly assured me that the 40 minute connection would present no problem; and Airfare.com tried to extract a 33% premium on its original sale to make any such adjustment. As it turned out, my apprehensions were realized when boarding and tarmac delays at SFO consumed the entire layover, and a subsequent gate delay at ORD frustrated the commendable efforts of the flight crew to facilitate the de-boarding of passengers with close connections. Contrary to United and Lufthansa's explicit reassurances, the long run halfway down one concourse and all the way back up a second left me four minutes short of the gate closure. You guys need to get your act together. If either airline chooses to finance its operations by selling tickets to an "aggregator", such a business practice should not relieve the airline of its obligation to provide reliable service to its ultimate customer, the flyer. I am currently working to identify an appropriate regulatory agency to whom to report this cynical misrepresentation of services and the patently corrupt business model upon which it is based."
Cons: "Too much sugary bread as nourishment."
Pros: "Very large selection of movies and TV shows"
Pros: "Smooth and on-time."
Pros: "Staff was wonderful. Food was very good and appropriate amount."
Cons: "My seat would not recline. I even asked for assistance, which was given, but no luck. Sitting upright made sleeping difficult."
Pros: "The seats were reasonable for the long flight The crew was very friendly and helpful The food was good for me (I'm vegetarian and had not asked for a special meal but the curry calcone was great The video system and range of films and shows was great"
Cons: "The boarding process was a little random but in the end worked out OK."
Pros: "Good flight. Good, friendly crew. Nice snacks offered."
Cons: "Would have liked information on going through customs on arrival. Luggage was very slow to be delivered to luggage belt. Airport was not ready for flight arrival."
Pros: "Flight was a code share operated by Shuttle America. EMB 170 and crew provided an above average flight. On time departure and arrival. Overall, no complaints."
Cons: "Nothing!!! It was a great flight!!!"
Cons: "Size of the seats"
Cons: "We couldn’t watch anything because the headphones required an adapter which we didn’t have and was not offered to us for purchase. We read a book for eight hours. Would have loved to watch a movie."
Cons: "Better drink selection"
Cons: "Gate agent talked me into checking a piece of luggage. Lost 3 pieces of luggage for 2 days. Plane was late so very stressful making our connection. Had to run thru Heathrow."
Cons: "The seats seem to get smaller and smaller and on the short flights, you do not even get a free drink."
Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "No free coffee."
Pros: "Check in and crew were very nice"
Cons: "Baggage was slow But everything was fine Pilot kept us informed"
Cons: "I'm not sure why the lady at the check-in desk was sooo rude and unwilling to help. Customers' presence was really bothering her..."
Pros: "Wonderful flight! Excellent, extremely friendly service! Could not have been better!"
Pros: "I like flights that land on purpose in a couple.troled way. This one did that. Good enough for me."
Cons: "Having to fly, but sometimes if happens."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "All baggage lost. Wasn't put on the plane because they didn't have enough containers. Ground crew at London was courteous. Luggage had to be sent on to the US the next day. No free bags on this flight so all of the luggage lost had been paid for piece by piece. No free drink service; even a soda had to be paid for. No food, of course. Originating 10hr flight from Los Angeles to London was also uncomfortable, with small, packed coach seats, no air nozzles and poor headset connectors. I was very happy to get back on American Airlines for my return to Los Angeles. Wouldn't use BA again."
Pros: "On-time departure and arrival. Courteous efficient crew, both on land and in the air."
Cons: "My main gripe is that if you want a plain cup of coffee or a bottle of water, you are charged for it and can pay only with a credit card, but only if that card is chip and pin, and my US card isn't. Yes, it is high time that the US move into the current millennium and get chip and pin cards, but that is beside the point. I also flew BA from London to Seattle (part of same trip) and the on-board meal & drink service was PHENOMENAL - the best I have had on an airline in years, and I did not get charged for anything, including alcoholic beverages. How can this be the same airline?"
Cons: "food was not offered you had pay. to eat which in my opinion is not proper at least a sandwich should be offered,"
Pros: "arrived on time"
Cons: "Coffee/tea was not free"
Cons: "Had to take an emergency trip to London. The cost of the ticket for an hour flight was outrageous. $900 US was highway robbery."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The entertainment wasn't bad there was a pretty good option of movies and shows."
Cons: "The food was gross. The curry chicken I got looked like paste over disgusting rubber rice. The breakfast didn't taste great either. It gave me stomach pain."
Pros: "The crew was very considerate of the fact that we couldn’t order special meal, but quite willingly offered as food which is totally the opposite of our the previous flight"
Cons: "There was no complimentary food offered like other airlines, not even water."
Pros: "I got there. It was safe."
Cons: "Entertainment system shut off."
Pros: "everyone was very nice-thank you"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "I have to pay for water?????"
Pros: "Comfortable and on time. We didn't have any food or entertainment so can't rate for them."
Cons: "After sitting on the tarmac (I understand the delay) for 2 hours there was no water available for another hour past takeoff. And then it was only available for purchase. Really, a cup of free water is asking too much?"
Pros: "Boarding seemed simple, no zones were called except for priority, we just all boarded and it seemed to go quickly and smoothly. BA is all pay onboard for any food or drinks."
Cons: "The cost to check in a bag was 65 pounds. We are a family of 3 and so that was 195 pounds. It is unreasonable to charge that much to check in a bag and ridiculous for ticket pricing to not be clear about this."
Pros: "Left on Time"
Cons: "Food costs money and not even water is free."
Pros: "We got to our destination safely which is always the most important thing."
Cons: "There didn't seem to be as much space as usual on international flights. The plane never got to a comfortable temperature and we were hot all the way home. One of our tv's didnt work which made for a very long 8 + hours."
Pros: "Nice plane, and quick flight to Heathrow from Glasgow. The plane had to leave late due to weather but the pilot kept passengers informed and made up time in the air so we were only 15 minutes late. The crew was available to discuss implications for connections."
Cons: "No entertainment options but this was a small plane and quick flight, so I didn't expect anything."
Pros: "Blanket and quiet to sleep"
Cons: "my screen didn't work"
Cons: "No snacks for 8 hours. Crew inattentive."
Cons: "There was a massive delay and I stood in line 6 hours to rebook. Because of the long rebooking line, I missed multiple other potential alternative flights that day and had to spend an unscheduled night in the suburbs of Glasgow. Had rebooking been more efficient, I could have returned home the day scheduled. Very disappointed."
Pros: "A little more leg room than regular flights, yummy food, more bathrooms. Even though I couldn't sleep during the whole 10 hours, there was a lot to watch and play provided by the airline."
Cons: "During the flight, I called the service button a few times and no one came. I don't mind going up and getting water, but it was a hassle being in a middle seat and asking my fiancé to let me out several times."
Cons: "Waiting an hour and a half in the customer service line when you make it in time for your flight but they won't let you on your flight two make your connecting flight it was still on the ground they didn't hold it. There were more than 10 people on my flight that missed their connection. I planned a two-hour layover thinking that would be plenty."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, food was good, tv entertainment has a lot more choices now, decent leg room, smooth landing and take off,"
Cons: "Flight being late 2 hours and we had to sit in the plane for that amount of time, they didn't their refreshment service early"
Pros: "Happy stewards"
Cons: "Everyone was terrible"
Pros: "All was fine ......cabin crew, pilot updates, seat comfort . Keeping hydrated is a well-known health fact. Why BA does not offer free water wa a shock to me . Yes a kind steward let me supplied with tap water, but I find it appalling that the corporate office does. It consider customers health important."
Pros: "Free wine"
Cons: "Too cramped"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit chaotic. Announcement s needed to be clearer. Also all old movies on the IFE."
Pros: "The food is good , the comfort is little bed the chairs is to close the other passsanger in the front is make nervous ,evert"
Cons: "Everything it's ok just the check in sometimes is take longer that the fixet time"
Pros: "shorter flight but they still offered us food, a drink, and tea. Also, shortly after the food was served a flight attended offered free newspapers."
Cons: "boarding was a little odd. we had to take a bus across the tarmac and board the pane from the ground. We were not sure what entrance was closest to our sets ended up going the long way."
Pros: "Left/arrived on time"
Cons: "Old airplane, no movie selections, grumpy service, small seats."
Cons: "We booked on Kayak for a British Airways flight international--but it was a bait and switch. We ended up flying on American Airlines--the WORST! And our whole reason for booking British Airways was to avoid any US airline... We paid a premium, plus Kayak then sends you to a third party processor that charges you another $100 booking fee! American Airlines was terrible! Not even an entertainment center on an international flight (OLD PLANE THAT SHOULD BE TAKEN OUT OF SERVICE!). We will NEVER use KAYAK again."
Pros: "The cost for three tickets were better priced using your service, rather than BA direct."
Cons: "The aircraft did not have any food on board, due to some difficulty. They were offering food vouchers at the gate once we landed. That never happened. It could have been useful as I was travelling with my two sons. Heathrow is expensive for breakfast."
Cons: "I had to stay overnight because the flight came in late."
Pros: "I love the fact that British Airlines gave us many hours notice that our first flight was delayed but we should arrive on time anyway. When we arrived, the check-in agent volunteered to switch us to an earlier flight so we could make our connection without a hitch. The plane was clean, the flight smooth, and the staff was friendly."
Cons: "Too little leg room in Economy seats. Food mediocre. Long line at check-in."
Pros: "Everything is clockwise precision. All the passengers were well disciplined or rather made to be. Aircraft was very airworthy. The pilot was very experienced and nice soft landing at Mumbai in spite of inclement weather conditions"
Cons: "The food & drinks. Both offered we're mediocre stuff."
Cons: "The flight was 2 hours delayed because there was a mechanical issue on the plane. We sat and waited on the plane for 1 hour while the Maintenance crew tried fixing the problem. After sitting there for one hour, they told us the problem wasn’t fixed and we have to change aircrafts. The other aircraft was all the way in terminal D (we were in terminal A) and the boarding process took a long time. Overall it was an awful flight and experience with American Airlines. I missed my mother’s birthday party because of the 2 hour delay."
Pros: "The crew were wonderful and understanding and good sports."
Cons: "There were problems as soon as the plane got to the gate. After the passengers got off the plane, the man at the counter came on the P.A and said it’ll be a few minutes, they’re catering the plane now from the back to the front. The flight crew still needed to get on a preform safety checks. He apologized again. Then it was 8:40, time to take off and we’re still waiting to even board. The man at the counter said again, thank you for your patience and relayed the same message, only this time the flight attendants were walking away from the gate. Around 9 some lady higher up told the man to announce that the flight crew had timed out and stand by crew was on the way to the gate, said sorry again. A little later the man says sorry, there’s a gate change. You’re going to K6 now. When we get to the new gate it’s almost 9:30pm and while we were all gathered at the gate, the flight crew that supposedly “timed out” showed up and proceeded to get on the plane. Passengers started getting mad and saying we were lied to and to just tell us the truth. Chicago PD started showing up. We finally got on the plane but it would be another 30 minutes before we moved because of issues getting our bags off the original plane. We ended up being almost 2 hours delayed."
Pros: "Everything was great. I especially liked the enter active map that showed some towns and lakes we flew over and the speed and elevation of the aircraft."
Cons: "More details on the map, for example, show landforms, mountain ranges, major roadways, rivers, etc."
Pros: "The place to charge the phone is easily accessible on the back of the seat in front (as opposed to underneath)."
Cons: "Did not like that I had to check my bag at the gate"
Pros: "Horrible !!!"
Cons: "Be on time !!!!"
Pros: "I didn’t interact with the crew but they seems nice."
Cons: "The trip from HonoluIu to Los Angeles was too warm."
Cons: "Hour delay"
Cons: "Changing terminals atleast 4 times"
Pros: "Everything happy and in time. Nice staff"
Cons: "Because of airline delay and increased immigration wait time, we missed our flight. No compensation but we were connected to another flight to Sac. 1-1/2 hours later, which worked out okay, except we got home very late at night."
Pros: "It was o k."
Cons: "No complain"
Pros: "Do you really think there is anything to like about flying these days. We are sardines pack on a your planes."
Cons: "Purchased business class seats, boarded in group 5. Had no where to put my 1 backpack. All the storage up front was gone. Why should I pay extra for a seat if I have to wait for everyone to get off the plane so I can go back 10 seat rows to get my bag. Dirty tray tables."
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "The crew managed to serve a glass of water. No snack, not even a bag of pretzels. They managed to collect trash four times. Again, they barely acknowledged the passengers. What happened to customer service?"
Pros: "It was generally ok"
Cons: "The tourbulance was crazy The fact I received my bag in Sacramento and it was damaged upset me a lot"
Cons: "Left with plenty of time but: -Terrible traffic! More than 3 hrs -Had to wait 30 min for shuttle -At airport they said flight was via American, other terminal. My paper from Kayak says Air Alaska -Terminal for flight uses separate bldg so shuttles to terminal , more time needed."
Pros: "Arrived early"
Pros: "nothing really"
Cons: "crowded seats , packed flight,"
Pros: "The flight out was really comfortable but the flight back was a little cramped. The crew was great."
Cons: "The return flight"
Pros: "easy flight"
Cons: "the remodel at LAX is a mess but the shuttles are nice, just be prepared if you have to shuttle to another terminal. Also check food, I went from gate 50A and had to shuttle to 52A and that area only has one area to get something to eat and its just sandwich, and not a lot of choices."
Pros: "We made it there and back on time and safely"
Cons: "This was an old plane; there was no power for devices, no individual movie screens as on other trans atlantic carriers, food was so so."
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "The seats are hard and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Efficient, really nice crew and the food was pretty good."
Cons: "being crammed into a sardine can, really loud plane. The seats are rocks!"
Cons: "We booked a BA flight from Pittsburgh to Glasgow, through Philadelphia. We intentionally chose BA because we anticipated good service. We later learned that the flight was serviced by American. Our original flight was delayed one day because we missed our connection due to weather on the East Coast (after six hours at the airport). American re-ticketed us for a flight the next day. After several misstarts in Pittsburgh, we arrived in Philadelphia with minutes to spare. After running to the gate, we were then greeted with what turned out to be a four hour delay. Then, upon return, we learned that our seat selections/priority boardings were all deleted because of the re-ticketing on the on the flight out, and we spent hours on the phone and at the airport trying to get things sorted out and ensure that we had a return flight. One of the worst trips ever in my experience."
Cons: "Flight was very delayed"
Cons: "The long delay was terrible"
Cons: "Four hour layover on a flight from Edinburgh to Sacramento."
Cons: "Flight into DFW was delayed over an hour and ended up missing connection from DFW to SMF by less than 10 minutes because connecting flight left the gate early! We had 5 people in our group, including 3 children under the age of 10. Instead of taking off on time or just a couple minutes late (and oh by the way, the flight to SMF was scheduled to land early because of favorable winds) the flight left the gate early while we were sprinting from gate C31 to A17, missing the door closing by minutes and stranding our party for a three hour wait for an aircraft that went to SFO instead (75 miles away from Sacramento). As the coup de gras, our luggage didn't make it on the plane to SFO so now it's sitting in Sacramento awaiting delivery. I know there were a lot of upset people with the weather delays yesterday, but a bit of foresight or accommodation by American or a particularly savvy gate agent could have prevented the 5 of us from being among them."
Pros: "The food was OK and I appreciated a complimentary glass of wine with the meal."
Cons: "Attendants made a big deal about expected significant turbulence...enough to say "now if your last chance to leave the plane" and suspend final beverage service. Turbulence was not bad at all and all they offered was water and juice after the initial service. Crew was short with passengers and movie selections were pretty lame. I was interested in the last movie, but it was shut off half way through."
Cons: "It also didn't happen due to rerouting"
Pros: "It seemed like it took longer to board this time. Otherwise, all was good. Flight was on time leaving and early landing."
Cons: "It seemed like boarding took longer that usual this time. It seems like it would go more smoothly if it were set up that everyone boards in the order from where they are seated, starting in the back, working forward."
Pros: "How friendly the staff at the gate always are."
Cons: "How lazy and unfriendly the staff at the ticket counter in LA are. I really hate that they make you check in yourself PLUS print out your own bags tags while they just stand there looking at you. What a waste of time and my money paying to be on this flight!"
Cons: "There was an announcement made after takeoff that due to "turbulence" no hot beverages would be served. That is just unbelievable! I spent a good amount on a ticket and you mean to tell me that you won't serve coffee due to turbulence?? Turbulence is staple of every flight. What an excuse!!! American Airlines stinks! No tvs on any of the flights too."
Pros: "Super service from a great crew!"
Pros: "THAT i WAS ABLE TO TRAVEL AND GET TO MY DESTINATION."
Cons: "WITH A CODE-SHARE, THE TICKET SHOULD SPECIFY WHICH CARRIER I WILL ACTUALLY FLY WITH. THIS WAS NOT DONE AND I ALMOST MISSED MY FLIGHT BECAUSE ALASKA AND AMERICAN ARE IN 2 DIFFERENT - VERY DIFFERENT TERMINALS. THEN THE LOBBY AGENT COULD NOT LOCATE ALASKA FLIGHT ON THE AMERICAN TERMINAL - ANOTHER DELAY. POOR EXPERIENCE OVERALL."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Connected from Cabo through Phoenix... seems that AA has really done a great job with passengers, but luggage is a whole other story, waited over an hour in Phoenix for luggage to come out, of course it didn't make the connection (had to clear customs in Phoenix)"
Cons: "The seats even in first class were so old the springs were stabbing me in the back. No entertainment system. American Airlines is ALWAYS late. I was delayed 5 hours. Food is horrid. Rating applies to all American flights I've been on."
Pros: "No comment."
Cons: "Due to flight delays and missed flight because of the delays, we had to rebook and reticket and took a different airline"
Pros: "Gate crew kept the door open as we dashed to our connection and welcomed us by name as they hustled us on board. Ground crew did an amazing job of transferring our luggage in the short 10 minutes or so that we had between planes. Thank you everyone!"
Pros: "Price was right"
Cons: "I was unable to get this flight and rebooked onto a United flight that was denatured 4 hours."
Cons: "Flight attendant rude. No smile, only saw them once"
Cons: "The layover was supposed to be an hour...ended up taking 3.5 hours!"
Pros: "I like the updated airplane were we all had our own Tv's to watch whatever we wanted"
Cons: "Had to switch planes twice late boarding food sucks it what to freaking hot in the plan seat where Uncomfy no freaking movie on our way back I'm not sure if I'll fly again with AA to many complains from people"
Cons: "No individual video monitors. Poor choice of audio channels."
Cons: "They forced me to check my bag in to baggage claim instead of at the gate. The airport staff were extremely rude and disrespectful."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Music/radio was nice at my seat; got into Sacramento early"
Cons: "No gate # on boarding pass, almost missed flight; kind of had to slouch to look out the window; rough/fast landing"
Cons: "That there is no internet"
