Cons: "This flight was purchased as business/first class and upon checking economy seat tickets were printed. We are NOT happy with the downgrade after American Airlines was more than happy to take our money for the higher class ticket. We would not have booked this flight as a red eye had we known we would have had economy seating. On top of which, the unseat entertainment for the row we were seated in was not working. I am usually quite happy with the American Airlines flights between Boston and LA, however this unexpected downgrade was not only surprising but extremely disappointing."
Pros: "Entertainment was very good. Crew was professional and efficient."
Cons: "The seat had no lower back support and was really uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew for Qantas is normally pretty damn good. This trip was no exception."
Cons: "The plane had a mechanical issue. The plane had sat on the ground for over 12 hours according to flightaware. They didn’t try to work on the mechanics issue till about an hour or two before boarding. This delay caused a lot of issues for so many passengers trying to make connecting flights."

Cons: "Seat spacing: way too close in economy. When person in front puts seat back, could not stand up to get out of seat. Got leg cramps trying to shuffle out sideways stooped over row of seats in front and rear hitting faces of occupants in my row. Refuse to fly on this airline any more until reasonable seat spacing is provided for price paid. Don't like standing up the whole flight because one cannot get into or out of seat."

Cons: "There was a delay but they didn't explain what was going on. I overheard that there was a threat."

Pros: "Fantastic service"
Cons: "Boarding gate was like queuing for a sporting event"
Pros: "Crew were affable and courteous, even if not very attentive."

Pros: "Case was off quickly"
Cons: "No choice in seating"
Pros: "Food was better than expected. Appreciate the multiple snacks in the middle of the flight. Appreciated the 2nd cup of coffee in the morning. The crew serving the food had excellent customer service skills. The movies listed on the website were different than the actual flight. I really wanted to see a couple that weren't available."
Cons: "There wasn't anything that was disappointing that stands out to me."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing that is unique to Qantas or just flying in general."
Pros: "Thanks Qantas staff members. You all rock! I was seated next to a sick passager and I spoke to crew members from LA to Sydney.

Great experience with staff in domestic flights too!!. Flight from Gold Coast to Sydney was excellent. Great service, indeed !!!"
Pros: "Dood provided was good. Service was good. Baggage was fast."
Cons: "Was seated in the center section and after getting settled and buckled in I kept smelling vomit and realized the seatbelt had dried vomit all over it. I couldn't get the flight attendant to help and finally got their attention and was told they couldn't do anything until after we were in the air. I was moved away from my family to another center seat. The flight had many open seats and we should have been kept together."
Pros: "Quite a bit of turbulence and I wish someone said it was normal I was worried the whole time"
Cons: "No dairy and gluten free option"
Pros: "Lacks a bar and for that reason is a touch behind Virgin Australia internationally. Great seats though"
Pros: "Attentive cabin crew, plenty of snacks and drinks Good range of entertainment options"
Cons: "One of seats did not recline with button-push, but cabin crew instructed us on the use of the manual adjustment, so it worked out OK in the end. We flew Premier Economy on the LA-SYD outgoing trip; the main difference for our SYD-LA return in Economy was the presence of a 3rd seat in our row occupied by a stranger, so bathroom breaks were a bit of a disturbance for all involved. Still you get what you pay for I guess!"
Cons: "The flight attendant was cranky and refused to give me another bottle of water although this was a 15 hr flight. She should really retire. The flight was delayed, which extended the whole trip by several hours. The food was mediocre at best."
Pros: "comfortable seats. Okay food. Great entertainment."
Cons: "Flights were almost all delayed. Was told I didnt have to pick up luggage during connecting flight, but did have to."

Cons: "Took off late. Other than that very comfortable and great experience"
Pros: "If offering free WiFi to Amex platinum card holders it needs to work f"
Cons: "Fix it"
Cons: "Kayak a howed my gate as something that didn’t exist at the terminal. I went to a kayak help desk to have a ticket printed that showed my TSA precheck because it wasn’t showing on my mobile ticket, and no one was there to help. I waisted for 10 mins. It then took me nearly 2 hours to get through security. I asked if I could get through quicker and was told I could not, despite it being passed my boarding time. I then ran to my gate where I waited for another 10 mins (no one was there, again) and then an employee came out and said they couldn’t let anyone board once the door was shut. He then directed me to the delta help desk (there was at least 20 people behind me who missed their flight). I then had to pay an additional $75 to get a later flight. The whole experience was awful and I’m disappointed with Kayak and the gate confusion, but mostly Delta and the lack of customer service."

Pros: "Everything went smoothly - very happy"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Take a long time to taxi to the gate & getting off the plane."
Cons: "Multilpe delays"
Cons: "Boarding was awful. It took about an hour to board and no reason was given until we were taxiing. (The crew was delayed.) Overhead storage was insufficient. Seats are too narrow. I paid for extra leg room, which I got, but I don't appreciate elbows in my ribs for the whole flight."
Cons: "late leaving, arriving and taxing."

Pros: "Food was plenty."
Cons: "Long security lines at Logan. No free WiFi"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful, fine flight, very prompt"
Cons: "Was unable to board an earlier flight without paying $75. If there are seats it shouldn't be so difficult to be moved."
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: "See above"
Cons: "Got in early"
Pros: "Being on time."
Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"

Pros: "Excellent video selection, Sweetwater 420, cookies were good. Landed 20 minutes early."
Cons: "Boarded 20 minutes late. Very very cold. Bathroom horribly disgusting. Coffee too cold."
Pros: "Well I arrived at the gate 8 minutes before departure due to a late flight from San Antonio. And no one was there. I watched the plane leave 5 minutes late. The gate attendants were super rude and lazy when they came back up the ramp. I think the walk really took it out of them. There were 10 people who had run from delayed flights just standing there thinking wtf."
Cons: "AA in Phoenix is always a nightmare. They seem to hire lazy people with no idea of customer service"
Cons: "Ramps up to the plane are a challenge for someone with movement problems. They had a mechanical issue that delayed departure for almost an hour for lack of a single screw."
Pros: "Pretty efficient for a completely full flight."
Pros: "Nothing on this flight was good except for the Captain with constant updates on the never ending delays."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for nearly three hours due to a mechanical problem with the assigned aircraft. We did not get the reason for the delay until nearly 2 hours after the scheduled departure time. Then, when a new plane was assigned. The boarding agents were rude. The flight attendant was rude."
Pros: "Got me to my destination"
Cons: "Attendants were less than welcoming with NO sense of humor. I found an empty whiskey container in the area under the seat in front of me. When I jokingly said that I found it empty and could she refill it for me, the attendant went off on me, telling me that she was too busy and couldn’t take it"
Pros: "Dear American, stop lying to your passengers stating that the flights are full, when in fact, they are not. Customers are willing to pay for upgrades but you give them no way to do so."
Cons: "A toilet had no water. The internet was not working for the whole flight"
Pros: "The tv and drinks"
Cons: "Being told why we’re delayed and then not being kept on board for so long once we arrived late"
Cons: "In a period of 20 minutes in the hour before boarding there were three gate changes. The last one was a change of terminal and gate. You have been doing this for years and you should know how to do this already."
Cons: "Constant delays, wrongful promises of when/how long delays would take"
Cons: "I paid $70 for a seat upgrade, and it showed on my boarding pass as “EXIT” (exit aisle) with 6 inches of extra legroom when I purchased the upgrade in London. By the time I arrived in Dallas, the “EXIT” indicator on my boarding pass disappeared. When I boarded the plane there was no extra legroom and row 16 was not an exit row: rows 14 and 15 were. I endured a less comfortable trip, and now have to go through the pain and effort to get a refund. Good luck to me..."
Pros: "Crew was polite, Captain was helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to mechanical issues."
Pros: "Great flight experience overall!"
Pros: "The Seats have a nice width and a nice forward-to-back pitch. They're also brand-new upholstery. Very nice"
Cons: "American Airlines concourse in Charlotte is awful. Standing room only, and under construction. No power outlets in the plane."
Cons: "Rushing from gate to gate after sitting on the tarmac for 30 minutes after not having anything to eat on the four hour flight from PHL. Not being able to get anything healthy because the layover was reduced from 40 minutes to 5. GIVE US SOME FOOD DAMMIT!"
Cons: "Confusing in LAX as to where to go for the flight"
Pros: "I didnt like anything about it"
Cons: "American knew it had a problem and never resolved it - delaying our flight by minutes every few minutes - we had 38 text messages indicating a change. In addition the crew "aged out" so we had to get a second crew - waited for that. the first plane had a mechanical, the second plane had a mechanical - more lengthy delays then finally the last plane was fine - but was again delayed by yet another hour for a total of 7 hours delay. Our compensation? Non existent."
Cons: "First of all, this flight was not good; that was my rating for the first leg of CLE to DFW. DFW to SJC was a disaster due to weather and multiple equipment changes. Overall the flight was delayed 7 hours, from 4:50pm to 11:40pm. I opted to reschedule for the following morning -- and that flight ended up being delayed for an hour due to equipment changes and mechanical issues. Door-to-door I spent 30 hours getting from CLE to SJC."
Pros: "The flight was very short compared with LHR to LAX, so, I don't have much to say about it."
Pros: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Customer service was friendly"

Cons: "Eventhough, I have accumulated over 100000 points. I don't get any seat upgrades or gold status!"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly from start to finish. On time departure. We did have to wait for a gate to open up in San Jose. It was a completely full flight."
Cons: "No gate being available upon an on time arrival."
Pros: "Staff courtesy."
Cons: "When I started this leg of my trip, I was completely exhausted having been in sitting position for almost 24 hours straight. Airline made no concessions for travelers knowing that some were just doing a simple trip and those others whose journey was very long. Narrow seats added to stress and discomfort. Airline policy seemed to be "Give me the money and I will deliver you safely. Period" Humanity seems to be last on airline list. Traveling is seriously grueling and unpleasant for all those not in First Class."
Pros: "People actually boarded by group number"
Cons: "Sitting in premium economy still doesn't giive enough room to spread out papers and get work done. Out of four segments I only got upgraded once despite having 16 upgrades in my account."
Pros: "1, Crew are very attentive 2. Great seat"
Pros: "The flight boarded really quickly with absolutely excellent service from the flight crew. The pilots and crew were so considerate, and helpful. They totally took care of all of us. From the time I got on to the flight to the time I got off the crew were there to make sure I was taken care of."
Pros: "The staff that pushed us thru the ridiculous process of going thru customs , getting our bags checked again & raced us thru to our connecting fight was amazing !!!"
Cons: "Our connecting flight was too close given we were coming back from Mexico& had to go thru customs. The security at customs were so rude to my mother who was in a wheelchair! The customs checking process was a joke! We barely made to our flight running thru that entire airport pushing my mother in a wheelchair. I can't tell you how horrible the experience was for both of us!"
Cons: ""Parked" on tarmac for 25 minutes waiting to leave LAX. Arrived half an hour late"
Cons: "More flight delays..."
Cons: "This flight transfer was totally ridiculous, and required me to exit security, take a bus, get through security again, take another bus, and then wait in a crappy gate with one single terrible food option. Whoever thinks this is a reasonable transfer ought to be subjected to it themselves before booking it for others."
Pros: "I had a family member enter the hospital 5 hours before take off. I got a full refund, even though I didn't have trip insurance."
Pros: "The plane was brand new and the crew were very nice. Entertainment system was well-done with good selection of movies. Even unedited movies!! Great."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for a half hour before it was marked as "delayed" and then it was delayed another half hour. If I had known it was going to be an hour late I would've been able to eat a proper dinner. They seemed to be out of every normal drink on the drink cart."
Pros: "Staff was kind."
Pros: "Flight was prompt. Crew was good."
Cons: "Not seated together with my wife. Looked at paying for upgrade, but no seats together."
Pros: "Everything went smooth. Staff were professional and friendly"

Pros: "The Crew were outstanding and the flights were quiet and smooth. Very comfortable flight!"
Cons: "No issues"
Cons: "THe reading light was broken"
Pros: "We boarded on time, we sat in the exit aisle, so we have a little extra room. They offered free movies, which my husband took advantage of. Pleasant flight"
Pros: "I had lots of space to my self"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "We were so crowded. No leg room. The lady next to me was too big for her seat so it was hot and sweaty the whole way"
Cons: "airbus A320 doesn't have power ports at seats...."
Pros: "Entertainment was not available for the latest Safari browser 10."
Pros: "Smooth, quick flight!"
Pros: "Again getting moved up to first class"
Cons: "I would have liked to know before I was already seated in Coach."
Cons: "It's not the first time that I was forced to gate check my carry on luggage. They claim that the cabinet in the plan is full while actually there is plenty of spaces for multiple luggages to be there. The crew was rude and refuse to explain it in an acceptable way. When I asked why cant I carry it when there is enough space, she simply says because you just can't. Do you want to take the plan or not! This is unacceptable."
Pros: "Empty middle seat so more room."
Pros: "customer service was EXTREMELY helpful in finding my luggage, and shifting my flight since I was delayed due to lost bag"
Cons: "crew onboard seemed super tense and it was just awkward with them. It was a short flight, maybe they've had a long day but it was weird. biscuits and a beverage were offered - i think biscuits are gross maybe try pretzels or something healthy? ALSO, the new system (whatever that means) is awful. i experienced so many delays that made it difficult to find my booking and my checked bag >_<"
Pros: "The boarding was good and effective, Entertainment was good."
Cons: "The crew did not pay attention to my requests for beverages and forgot to bring me what I have asked."
Cons: "Dirty plane, nobody bothered to wipe the tray table and Black Mold showing (extensively) at top air vents. Very uncomfortable flight. AC needs to do a Much Better job cleaning between flights!!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were not kind to the customers and treated us like they were doing us a favor by working on the flight."
Cons: "The flight attendants at one time actually were talking about other passengers, who happened to be of Chinese descent like they weren't even there. Like they did not understand English. Just rude"
Pros: "Efficient and quick, no issues."
Cons: "flight was too bumpy"
Pros: "I loved everything!"
Pros: "Got to Newark fast luggage was off plane very quickly"
Cons: "Older plane no body at gate to drive jetway gaving us sit out on tarmac"
Cons: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Time is money. Instead of telling customers to arrive 3 hours before departure and it is their problems if they can make it, a better way to be helpful is to have representatives ready to spend 3 minutes to look at customers' status, offer feasible options and point people to the right directions right away. Be a part of the solution! Don't be such a pain when you can offer a helping hand."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "No food selections available Better movie selections"
Pros: "Some of the roomiest most comfortable seats out there. Lovely staff."
Pros: "They provided bags, napkins and were very understanding every trip down the aisle to the lavatories"

Cons: "Incredibly disorganized"
Pros: "The crew was outstanding - pleasant and efficient."
Cons: "Entertainment: movie selection very limited."
Cons: "One flight attendant was rather unpleasant. When she asked my husband what he wanted to drink he asked "Can I have coffee?" Her repsonse was a firm "No.' Confused, he repeated the question and she again responded with "no." I had to ask her, "Are you not serving hot drinks on this flight?" I'm always shocked by this kind of behavior in some flight attendants. Why didn't she just say, "I'm sorry. We aren't serving hot drinks now"?"
Pros: "All of it"
Pros: "Entertainment system. Flight crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed which is fine. I attempted to go to the desk for a food voucher but they didn't have enough workers and were focused on getting people with connections onto another flight and told me to wait. When we reboarded, we were offered vouchers for the airport we were leaving that would expire the next day, which is essentially useless."
Pros: "For some reason the seats didn't seem as cramped as usual. There were no long delays."
Cons: "We didn't get aisle seats. We didn't expect the food offerings to be great, and we weren't disappointed. We would have preferred that Trump not be president on our arrival. Maybe next time."

Cons: "The plane was old and cramped and entertainment system had issues. Movie choices were not that great."
Pros: "Friendly staff n helpful. Good seats, movies available"
Cons: "You have to pay for everything even the headphones. The seat, the luggages n not even a small peanuts snack they give you. Flight are very expensive for you to pay all extra."
Pros: "I liked having Nexus get me through air Canada's malfunctioning Website to airport chaotic check-in otherwise may have missed my flight! Actual flight was smooth,quick and comfortable. Flight attendants were friendly and helpful. Airplane interior open and bright. Bathrooms clean and well supplied."
Cons: "Customer's time is valuable too! Air Canada website check-in malfunctioning causes anger, frustration and chaos at home and continues through airport check-in. HUNDREDS of angry, frustrated customers paid for their tickets, tried to check-in online and arrived early all converged into one CHAOTIC crowd. ADDRESS these issues, FIX YOUR WEBSITE, TREAT YOUR HARDWORKING, PAYING CUSTOMERS with DIGNITY and RESPECT they DESERVE. Competing Airlines are waiting for your dissatisfied customers."
Pros: "Friendly staff all the way through. Offered lots of non-alcoholic drinks. Small delay at departure in Vancouver, but on-time departure from Newark. As return flight was not fully booked, change of seats was possible and instead of being 3 in a row, we were only 2. Overall, good experience"

Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "Not apply."
Cons: "There was no wi-fi!!!"
Cons: "Never on time"
Cons: "The flight was as can be expected. That said, having liquid drip on you from the air vent above is hardly reassuring and certainly not comfortable"
Pros: "Got to fly on a brand-new 787, which was terrific! And service was excellent by all crew members. We had an overall great experience!"
Cons: "1 hour 35min delay for a 1 hour 40 minute flight!!"
Cons: "Missed connection because of their computer issues. The hotel they arranged for us was a 30minute drive from airport. We passed 50 hotel alternatives on the way. Nobody greeted us at the gate to explain our options. My luggage never arrived"
Pros: "Everything was fine. It was a very short flight."
Pros: "air canada quickly changed me to another flight when mine was delayed but I had to ask for that, they did not offer."

Pros: "I got home, it was delayed but not badly"
Cons: "Frankly my butt was killing me 40 minutes into the flight due to the seat ... if the flight had been much longer I would have lost it"
Pros: "Tv options"
Cons: "I'm only 5'10" and my knees were digging into chair in front of me. Also, we had everyone boarded about ten minutes early (which is awesome) and we were told we would leave a bit early, but then sat there for about 15 minutes and departed even later due to long line for take off."
Pros: "Flawless flight and friendly staff and roomy seating on Air Canada flight"
Cons: "Did not have food options I wanted - ran out."
Cons: "They wouldn't seat us together"
Pros: "Everything was great I had a Blast"
Pros: "wonderful plane"
Cons: "NO WIFI!!!"
Pros: "organized boarding; timely departure and landing; baggage swifly appeared at carosel; younger members of the crew were great"
Cons: "Most senor member of the crew on the flight [female/blond] was flat out rude and clearly should not be interfacing with clients on flights."

Pros: "Boarding of children at the beginning of boarding operations. Double thumbs up."
Cons: "At 2 hours into the flight I was most of the way through a movie. The crew then announced that some passengers were unable to view the entertainment system so they were resetting the entire system. Crew said passengers would be able to resume watching entertainment at the point they left off. Needless to say this was not the case. The entertainment system never got reset properly and did not function for the rest of the 4+ hour flight."
Pros: "the flight actually went"
Cons: "our gate was switched and then there were no updates until after the original boarding time passed"
