Charles de Gaulle airport sent us to 3 different gates and then delayed the flight by two hours, only to move it back to the original gate
Cons: "The inoperative TV screens should be repaired."
Cons: "Not enough room with the seats if someone reclines in front of you."
Cons: "They need to make more leg room in ALL planes"
Cons: "I had a tight connection, but made it to the gate in time. I walked down the jetway to what appeared to be a locked door, with no one there to guide me on how to board. It turns out there was a stairwell at the end of the jetway, which was to take me to a bus on the tarmac. This was very stressful."
Pros: "We got home safely! The crew was great and generally cheerful despite less than great conditions."
Cons: "Lots of delays due to weather, which I get. The plane was small and old and stuffy with too close seats."
Pros: "The croissants were great!"
Cons: "Never made it on the flight"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "The flight is operated by Air France and I would have preferred Delta. It was extremely cramped but the food was excellent and it was on time"
Pros: "Very helpful flight crew."
Cons: "A little unexpectedly bumpy."
Pros: "On time arrival is always appreciated."
Cons: "Overhead compartment jammed with someone else's carry on. We paid for "comfort seating" and I frankly didn't see any difference - if there was more room on those seats, it was small enough I couldn't SEE it."
Cons: "If my baggage arrived"
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was excellent"
Pros: "Overall was a good experience"
Cons: "My wife’s seatback entertainment kept glitching...that was frustrating and Seat wasn’t very comfortable"
Cons: "The crew members were very rude and they called me an IDIOT!! Yes they did because the forced me to check my carry on bag and i didnt want they are racists"
Pros: "Having the whole center three seats to myself. The food and beverages were really good as well."
Cons: "Both flights were significantly late to depart. Also the WiFi on the transatlantic flight was out."
Pros: "Food &entertainment"
Cons: "Mechanical problems flight delayed 2 1/2 hours"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "A bit warm and the B777 blowers not in the easiest location to reach."
Pros: "food and service was amazing"
Cons: "delay in seattle caused a loss of a whole day of my holiday. VERY UNHAPPY"
Cons: "more leg room is needed"
Pros: "We left an overcoat on the plane after the long flight and did not realize our area until we were in the baggage claim area. The Delta agent in Paris was most helpful. He went above and beyond to retrieve our coat. Good job Delta!"
Pros: "Friendly service, smooth flight"
Cons: "Some seats were double booked, which was not realized until the plane was fully boarded, which caused very late departure, which almost caused us to miss our connection in Paris. Also the bathroom became a mess - slow to restock toilet paper, etc."
Cons: "Every thing was excellent"
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Pros: "The service and the crew were extremely courteous polite and professional ."
Cons: "As it is an all flights just not enough leg room and a very tight chair."
Cons: "The food was just ok."
Pros: "Standard Air France flight. My wife and I like the Airbus 380."
Cons: "The flight left two hours late. Apparently this happens a lot with this flight these days because it's an Airbus 380 coming from Paris to Dulles and turning around. The incoming flight was two hours late, so the departure was late. Our arrival in Paris was late. We made the flight, but our luggage didn't. Our return flight from Paris to Dulles was half an hour late because of people from connecting flights. We arrived about 30 minutes late, but no big deal (unless you had a connection)"
Pros: "The crew was awesome and helped out tremendously when anything was needed!"
Pros: "Food and movies were good."
Cons: "Didn't leave on time."
Cons: "Old plane, bad food & old crew"
Pros: "The Delta check-in at RDU was terribly understaffed with only 2 agents handling baggage drop-off for a fully booked Boeing 757. I waited over 1 hour and got to the gate at the last minute. Poorly managed! The flight crew was great though! Very attentive service even in the economy class!"
Cons: "The food could be better."
Pros: "Easy boarding, great service from the flight crew, and excellent food and drink service. Seats were comfortable and plenty of entertainment options for a long flight"

Cons: "Seats not very comfortable-very close quartered"
Pros: "The food was fine and it was on time"
Cons: "The airplane back by the bathrooms were littered all over the floor. Needed to be cleaned. Their were no seat covers in toilette and it was only 2 hrs into the flight."
Cons: "Gate agent not friendly"
Pros: "Crew was excellent everything served was of great quality, all the amenities were solid and flight was comfortable and on time."
Cons: "The only complaint was the extreme use of air conditioning that made it a necessity to use many blankets to keep warm from freezing."
Cons: "Like everyone says - could use more leg room. Theres no way to stretch legs which is a problem on ling flights. Why not lift up the seats by a few inches? This would create more leg room underneath without changing the number of seats and doesnt impact the head room much."
Cons: "My wife was told she could not board our flight from Boston to Paris because her passport was expired, even though it was not expired. We were told that in Europe passports cannot expire within 3 months of your departure. However, Delta never let us know about this rule until we literally were boarding the plane. How they could not make us aware of this until we were boarding the airplane is unbelievable and unacceptable. This has ruined our vacation which has been in planning for the last six months."
Pros: "ability to book a later flight when I missed my connection through the delta app."
Cons: "Delays, missed a connection, booked a new connection through the app and that one was delayed as well...what was supposed to be a 3.5 hour experience turned into a much longer one. Seats do not accommodate people over 6'2" abiet very poorly."
Cons: "seats on this Airbus configuration were horrible for first class. 6 across and the same 32" spacing as the economy section. with middle seat empty was first class. YIKES"
Pros: "Good food (for economy), lots of little perks (like eye shades), and most importantly, excellent service from the flight attendants. One of my best transatlantic flights."
Pros: "I liked: After check-in, I was given luggage sticker and told that luggage will be collected in Hyderabad which is my last destination, same was printed the sticker."
Cons: "I didn't like: While transition from Mumbai to Hyderabad, i was told to collect the luggage in Mumbai and check-in again which made so worried and confused."
Pros: "Time was made in the air and we did not miss our connecting flight."
Cons: "The flight was very late."
Pros: "At least the plane didn't return to the gate and we departed 7 hours late."
Cons: "All the delays and gate changes with no explanations and only informed via text message. The weather wasn't even that bad. Missed the connecting flight to Bucharest and part of vacation time."
Pros: "The leg room was great, the blanket and pillow provided was great and the crew did not disturb me."
Cons: "Aircraft was smelling bad! Hygiene is the key"
Pros: "Flight attendant warm, courteous and authoritative at same time."

Pros: "Very helpful and accommodating"
Pros: "Crew is phenomenal! Food was good. Comfortable overall"
Pros: "Flight was delayed from LAX. No accommodation offered"
Cons: "Accommodation. They were kinda rude about the whole experience"
Cons: "Larger seats! More legroom! No seats which don't recline. Specifically, the seat in front of min reclined -- literally into my lap, since my knees were against the back of that seat ALL the time. Min didn't recline, since it was too close to a partition."
Cons: "food screens"
Pros: "My seat was next to bathrooms when everyone start using it start smelling too much very uncomfortable sitting there. Food chicken was very salted, they run out of drinks 10 hours flight dinner served at begging no snacks or anything till 2 hours before landing"
Cons: "At least air fresheners in bathrooms or something better so passengers can sit comfortably"
Pros: "Luggage space, comfortable seat.. huge plane"
Cons: "The flight left 19 minutes early, stranding 7 people who were connecting from New Orleans. We ran across the entire airport and made it to the gate before departure time. The employee at Lufthansa Senator lounge was nice enough to tell us that the crew must have felt like leaving early. She was very nonchalant about the whole issue. She also refused to assist us, and told us we needed to exit the airport and reenter through the ticketing counter. I upheld my end of the deal by reaching the gate in time. This situation needs to be rectified."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The cabin crew was helpful and very friendly and the food was the best we have recently had on an international flight. The entertainment selection was enormous and spanned the realm of all venues."
Cons: "All flights cancelled. Stuck overnight."
Pros: "The video library was huge, current and very helpful. The good was great"
Cons: "Way too stingy with ice - 4 ice cubes at one time was the max allowed."
Pros: "Flight left on time and as I was traveling alone I was upgraded to upper economy, which is a fantastic experience. Very smooth and stable flight. One of the best landing I even experienced. The flight inbound and outbound were on time both ways. Congratulations Lufthansa: I will definitely use this airline again."
Pros: "Excellent boarding experience. Very good food, overall a very comfortable journey."
Pros: "Lufthansa is an efficient operation."
Cons: "1. The comfort in economy class was insulting and horrible. I am 6'3", 175lbs and was trapped in one uncompromisingly uncomfortable position for 8+ hours. Torture is a word that comes to mind. If I were a smaller sized person, 5'8" or less, perhaps this may be acceptable, but for anyone over 6'. forget it. You must pay loads extra to be given a respectable seat. I am hopeful that I don't develop a blood clot from this flight. This lack of room is a seriously dangerous situation for many people on long-distance flights. 2. The seat recline feature added further insult to the mix. Once airborne, the lady in the seat in front of me sent her seat into what was left of any personal space or legroom I had. The video screen on the setback in front of me was literally 6" from my face now. Several people who were also of taller size complained, one was so adamant about retaining his space that he fought verbally with the lady in front of him, and eventually a stewardess had to be called. My wife complained on my behalf, and was able to get the lady in front of me to reposition her seat, but eventually, I noticed it somehow found its way back to recline again. I know Lufthansa is not alone with this predicament, but something HAS TO BE DONE to fix this huge problem with air travel. 3. The food on the flight to Germany was way better than the return trip. The meal consisted of mushy carrots, greasy mashed potato-like side, and a piece of OK chicken smothered in 'Murican BBQ sauce. I was insulted. Lufthansa had been better than this in the past. Oh, and the dinner roll was so dry and crumbly, it could have been weeks old. The snack before landing was called pizza, but I wouldn't call it that It was a bunch of tasteless dough, a little bit of tomato like sauce and a smattering of cheese. I wish Lufthansa would stick to what they do best; German-influenced food. Be true to who you are. Most people I know love German food, and I always have looked forward to LH food selections. Not now."
Cons: "I didn't like going downstairs to the bathroom. I'm sure there is a good reason why we did it. Also, the seats are too close together for a trip of that length of time."
Pros: "Same as a above"
Cons: "They don't have entertainment"
Pros: "service on luthansa was delightful"
Pros: "Efficient loading. Flight was on time. Nice crew."
Cons: "the food was not kosher chicken with milk at the first flight the past was owerfull"
Pros: "The flight is less than 3 hours, yet they include a sandwich with the flight."
Pros: "The food was okay and the crew did their best to make us comfortable once we were on board. We flew business class, so that was probably a factor."
Cons: "Everything else was horrible. When we got to the airport, they didn't even know we were coming. They sent us to two other airlines, assuming we were flying with a partner airline, then tried to shift the blame onto Kayak. When -- and ONLY when -- we pointed out that we'd actually booked directly through Condor and Kayak had only served as the intermediary, they gave us a direct line to call. Then their agent said "You can't always trust the people at the desk, you know." Oh, really? If I can't trust your own agents, who can I trust, exactly? It turned out that we had an initial flight to Minneapolis, which was NOWHERE on the itinerary, on Sun Country. The Sun Country folks, thankfully, were enormously helpful and we made our flight with 2 minutes to spare. But it doesn't end there. We'd paid for business class all the way, but only got it on the interseas portions of our flights. And they lost our luggage on the way home, to boot. Take home lesson? NEVER FLY WITH CONDOR. I'll walk to Europe before ever booking with them again. And I'll make sure that all my friends and colleagues, all of whom travel extensively, know of our experience."
Cons: "It took too long to drop by luggage. Some of the crew wasn't friendly."
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "Service was excellent. Planes were very nice and food was very good for airplane food. I would highly recommend flying Lufthansa. Staff was excellent."
Cons: "Service was excellent. Planes were very nice and food was very good for airplane food. I would highly recommend flying Lufthansa. Staff was excellent."
Pros: "Movie selection, wine and food"
Cons: "Crying babies - outside of the crew control"
Cons: "-flight delays-no information provided-no information on gate changes-"
Cons: "My entertainment screen did not work even after being reset twice. And the flight was too full to move."
Pros: "On time departure of flight"
Pros: "Crew, food and enterteintment were good"
Cons: "Boarding was to messy, sits were extremely tight, cabin was too warm and sits does not reclined enough to make a comfortable sleep time"
Pros: "Excellent plane overall. Was late on one connection but so were a lot of other airlines due to high winds."
Pros: "Liked the flight from Frankfurt to Chicago better when it comes to food and drinks. It was spaced out better and we were offered more drinks. It was very nice to have a seat changed when checking in at the airport without any problems or telling me to ask once on board."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable."
Pros: "The food, the crew and the entertainment were top-notch, best flight I've been on. Economy was more comfortable than other flights :) will always try to fly with Lufthansa in the future!"
Cons: "Boarding was very chaotic"
Pros: "On time, fast boarding"
Cons: "Food. Couple of screens not working."
Pros: "Smooth flight. No complaints"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "There was a lack of communication with boarding and there was no one to check us in at the airport. We are paying you thousands of dollars, perhaps you could have someone check people in."
Pros: "Exceptional service and quality. Flew economy but treated like first class. If I travel abroad again Lufthansa would be my number one choice."
Pros: "Entertainment system very good ; crew very professional"
Cons: "Airline might have given warning of long long distance between connecting gates and need to undergo another security check. Also waiting area very cramped."
Pros: "They handed out baggage claim tickets for the larger carry-on items early so that passengers had plenty of time to rearrange their items, as long as they arrived at the gate in time."
Cons: "They had 3 flights boarding through 2 doors that led to one hallway, which was very confusing. It took quite a while to retrieve the checked carry-on items, with the effect that most of the passengers were lined up down the causeway tube, waiting. The seats are so very cramped on these puddle jumpers; this was way too long a flight for cramped seats that don't recline. The entertainment was wifi that never really worked."
Pros: "Got to try the new premium economy - which was fantastic. Loved the foot rest, added space, and comfortable seats. The crew was wonderful and it made an 8 hour flight go by quickly."
Cons: "There was a last minute plane change, with resulted in a lot of confusion and unhappiness as we boarded. For those of us who checked in at least a day in advance, the loss of a window or aisle seat was troubling. Even more frustrating were the parents who requested a bassinet seat, were confirmed for that seat at check-in prior to arriving in Munich, and then being told that there were no more bassinet seats. Also, only one row was opened to scan your ticket and board - which made the process very slow and frustrating."
Pros: "Seemed to have more overall room for a regional"
Cons: "My frequent flyer number did not show up"
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly- no delays."
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: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"
Pros: "The plane size & comfort was excellent. The staff were very friendly"
Cons: "Boarding at Florence is always chaotic but this isn't within the control of KLM or their crew."

Very good job from pilots. Leg room in economy - I was positively surprised, very decent leg room! Thank you for providing it."
Cons: "I flew economy and all was good and appropriate to the level."
Pros: "Usual faultless KLM experience"
Cons: "Delay due to strike"
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "No food provided "due to a strike the previous day". Not sure why this would impact on providing a sandwich or snack particularly when champagne was still available for first class passengers."
Pros: "Good amount of space on the plane, lots of movies to watch, good food and drink."
Pros: "Crew was nice and pleasant"
Cons: "Flight very late"
Pros: "Reasonable space in economy class seats"

Pros: "No delay and nice staff"
Pros: "Seat was good"
Cons: "Depart on time (1 hour late), hostess put a laptop in the overhead, which fell out and hit me when the bin was opened"
Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"

Cons: "The seats could have been bigger."

Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."
Pros: "Good comfortable seat with extra leg room. Pleasant crew."
Pros: "The constant smile conferred by flight attendants through the entire flight."
Cons: "The boarding was a bit disorderly. Lanes for zones 3 and 4 were not clearly indicated."
Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."
Pros: "Snooth and efficiënt with a KLM service"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "The seats seemed to have more space on this plane which was nice."
Cons: "It felt strange that the crew members completely skipped over me when serving lunch and drinks. At least something as basic as water should be given to all passengers."
Pros: "Everything excellent. Comfortable seats in business."
Pros: "The attendants took great care of us. Super smooth flight."
Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."
Cons: "About 1h30min delay without an explanation. All other planes in the terminal seemed to take off on time without a problem, without exception (aside from this flight, of course)."
Pros: "expedited check in with nice staff. Security staff were pleasant, and the entire check in process for everything was easy"
Cons: "there was no lounge close to our departure gate"
Pros: "Very friendly service!"
Pros: "I personally do not appreciate the food on this leg of the journey Food Ams to Dxb is GOOD!!"
Cons: "The snack & “ solid eggs” in breakfast. Fresh fruit was good."
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and polite! Entertainment system had some great movies at no additional cost."
Cons: "Poor communication between delta, KLM and Air France meant that I couldn’t check in online and get a digital boarding pass. Furthermore I couldn’t use the check-in kiosks because my name was listed as Reidmr instead of Reid, which meant that my boarding pass did not match my passport. Overall this caused unnecessary delays that were compounded by the fact that I couldn’t use my TSA precheck. My main problem on the plane was that I had to struggle to get water served to me. It’s always so dry on planes and I would have liked to be able to get more than one tiny glass of water at a time. Also, would have loved a window at my window seat. Plus no WIFI!?"
Pros: "The flight was very good, specially considering it was a daylight one. Staff was friendly and servicial. Tue food was above the industry's average."
Cons: "KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Also, really tired of the fake business class on these flights..."
Cons: "Per usual, KLM can't seem to figure out the order of boarding the plane. Should be business - priority - everyone else. Instead they do priority first, and that's usually two-thirds of the passengers. Strange choice of in-flight movies; no accounting for taste, I guess."
Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."
Pros: "Timing & efficiency. Good food though only a sandwich."
Cons: "Nothing. Could say there was no entertainment but I didn't want entertainment on such a short flight"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No negative"
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"
Cons: "There was no entertainment which is why I assigned that category only one star. The boarding process in Amsterdam could have been a bit smoother. Announcements were no clear."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient."
Cons: "Limited movie selection. Crew seemed stressed. Gave me wrong meal and then swaped for the right one. I asked for Diet Coke and was given white wine. Food quality was not good."
Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"
Pros: "Staff, service"
Pros: "Special treat for King's Day Friendly crew"

Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "See my earlier comments on the first leg of the flight"
Pros: "The flight crew were very friendlly and accommodating. The landing in Paris was the smoothest I've ever had."
Cons: "The guy sitting next to us. He was very messy with his own airport-bought food all over the floor. And very restless and up and down the entire flight."
Cons: "I purchased a seat upgrade, so much more leg room and a relatively comfortable seat. No seat back TVs so bring your own entertainment."
Pros: "Seats were not too cramped."
Cons: "Wifi that actually worked."
Pros: "More room"
Pros: "great trip and crew"
Cons: "Very old airplane used for this route. Upgraded to business but seats and pods are old fashioned, uncomfortable. Newer pods and planes used in other routes make the entire trip more comfortable. The video system didn’t work properly, hard to figure out what to watch."
Pros: "Dinner and boarding"
Cons: "Seats, noise and kids running, walking and CRAWLING in the aisles and lack of wifi and entertainment that I can choose, Also, the bathrooms ran out of paper and the crew was not attentive. They didn't do anything about the kids disruptive behavior and extremely load talking (reciting abc and counting). I asked if they could talk to the parents and they said no, the beverage service was not good as I couldn't get more water and the seats were awful! Why wasnt the wifi working? even if it worked I'd have to purchase it even tho it was an international flight. I will not fly American Airlines again!"
Pros: "Nice crew Spacious plane"
Pros: "Kayak is taking people’s money by selling airlines tickets of airlines that doesn’t exist. I bought tickets for some airlines called Finnair and end up in the worse airline there is “American Airline” this is Not fare for clients, I refuse to flight Americans Airline, if I would have known I would have not buy this flight. 7 hours in a plane with no TV, no free drinks and the worse service. This is a trick, by using Finnair and then end up in AA! There is no Finnair, this is a lie! I am so disappointed about Kayak and won’t use it again. Thank you for rob me and trick me into the worse experience!"
Cons: "The trick the kayak used to put me in American Airlines, the worse Airline there is."
Pros: "The Flight Crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Business class, Boeing 767-300 The seating configuration was 1/2/1 I would give these seats on a scale from 1 to 10 a 5, this was a very basic B/C seat, without a TV screen integrated to the seat in front of you, instead the flight crew hand out individual passenger entertainment systems, that are a pain to deal with and get in the way of everything your trying to do (ie eat, work, sleep.) I’m only 5’9 and I found when the seat was in the bed mode, the seat slopped down very slightly, and your feet would end up underneath the side table to the row of seats in front of you. As i wear a size 13 shoe, i found that space to be rather cramped especially for my feet."
Pros: "They did have lots of entertainment movies, tv shows, games"
Cons: "They ran out of food for the passengers. The loaded and boarded us and then we sat on the plane not moving for an hour or two, making the flight feel much longer. The seats were so tiny and uncomfortable. Made it hard to sit comfortably"
Cons: "How much tighter can they cram us? I'm 5'11" and 185 pounds and was too wide for the seats!"
Pros: "Clean plane. Excellent service. On time."
Pros: "Crew was great. Courteous and efficient."
Cons: "For a long flight the entertainment options were pathetic. Also the flight was 2 hours late. And there were no chargers at the seats so that also limited the entertainment options. The food was too salty and fatty."
Pros: "The actual flight was fine. But leading up to it not so much."
Cons: "Please inform travelers that their passport must not expire within 3-6 months of their trip to France. I was unaware of this and was not allowed on our flight in Philadelphia because my passport would expire in two months. We lost an entire day in France because I had to go to the customs office the next morning and get an emergency passport. I travel frequently, but somehow was not aware of this rule. If I had known I would have fixed the issue months ago. Multiple people viewed my ticket and passport before arriving in Philadelphia and no one caught this error until right as I was boarding the flight to Paris."
Cons: "My flight IB 4190 from DFW to Paris on 11/11/17 @ 17:55 was operated by American Airline. I was denied to pay for my second check in bag for the simple reason that I didn't buy my ticket with American Airline!! According to American Airline agent (Danielle) at the counter, a ticket purchased with Iberia only allow 1 check bag for free and you are not allow to check in an additional bag. I called the travelling agency and Iberia customer service agent (Jose) while I was at the airport. They both told me that I should go with the luggage rule of American Airline which allow passenger to pay for a second bag. Danielle refused to talk to both agents I called. I need someone to tell me how my luggage can be send to me to Paris please. I had a very bad experience with this trip. Please help clarify the discrepancy!"
Pros: "On time, good service."
Pros: "Extremely nice and helpful lady at Philadelphia airport self-service kiosks sorted seating and frequent flyer number out for me, I noticed she really was helping everyone who was working on their tickets and I was completely impressed. The cabin crew and pilots were very professional as well."
Cons: "There were one or two staff members phoning it in but even they were basically pleasant to deal with. Overall I'd definitely fly American again. It reminded me of the simplicity and professionalism of flying in the early 90s."
Pros: "Flight was supposed to leave 5:45 PM , they let us board the plane right on time, then we stayed waiting on board for half an hour, there was zero communication from staff or the captain, then suddenly they asked us to leave for no reason whatsoever, we waited and waited, they decided to move us to Gate 1 instead and had us wait for four hours, they served us little food, and told us wait for AA to provide a new plane. we were delayed for four hours, flight left 10PM. very very dissatisfied, never ride with AA or Iberia"
Cons: "I need a refund for this flight. it was a horror, 4 hours of delay with zero communication."
Pros: "I like the fact that it was a nonstop flight and the food was OK"
Cons: "The entertainment needs to be updated! They're should be individual TVs on a long flight overseas. On the first flight going to Paris there was no Wi-Fi which sucked!"
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Tiny plane, old. No leg space at all (I'm 5.5). Our connection before this flight was a 1 hour flight on a modern very spacious airplane, we wished we could've flown on the same plane for the 6+ flight to Paris."
Pros: "Crew were very efficient and kind."
Cons: "It was very cold the entire flight."
Pros: "Great crew. Nice passengers."
Cons: "Food not so good"
Pros: "The flight was equal to AA service I have had on a regular basis."
Pros: "This was one of the best crews I've ever had on a flight. So helpful."
Cons: "Didn't like having to get rescreened for a domestic flight after going through customs."
Pros: "I Was expecting a bad flight being an aa plane but it was honestly one of the best flights Ive ever had. Modern and clean plane with awesome entertainment. Kind staff, tons of snacks and yummy food"
Pros: "The American Airlines crews and people manning the desk erred very professional. Yes, this particular flight was conducted by American for Iberia under a share code. So whatever horror stories you have heard of about European Iberia flights, the one I took was fine. But the airline's crew is being let down."
Cons: "In Chicago, our flight was delayed at least three hours for a "GPS update." The crews said the software wasn't even handshaking. Okay. But I have a feeling this is common, and wish the airline would figure out a way to conduct updates, safely, without impacting everyone's schedule. My wife flew through same connection on the same airline a week later. And her flight was canceled. Maybe for the same issue? Unsure. It could have been a a bad luck streak."
Cons: "The plane was dirty, the window had a leak, the TV was too far away and the sound system to watch the movie was broken. When the plane is in that poor of a condition, it's time to replace it. F."
Pros: "Everything great. Rate food and entertainment moderate because there was no dinner, which we did not require, and we went to sleep so didn't pay attention to entertainment."
Pros: "Crew are saving a bad experience"
Cons: "Space are laughable Food is bad If I have a choice, I'll not take an american airlines for any international travel"
Pros: "The flight crew was professional, friendly and competent. They served the dinner as early in the flight as possible."
Cons: "This was a plane with central screens along the aisle, and the airline chose to broadcast a sci-fi action movie with almost constant flashing blue light, and violent action scenes. This was first of all a movie that many people, including me, would never choose to watch, but since it was on the aisle screens there was no getting away from it. It was also unsuitable for children, even without sound. But mainly, I object to the showing of any film in that situation - only aisle screens available, and on a night flight where most of the passengers are trying to sleep. I was awakened several times by the flashing lights. Other things: one of the bathrooms was not very clean, and the plane felt like the usual cattlecar, with just 3 seats on each side of the aisle, which is unusual and unpleasant for a transatlantic flight."
Pros: "The crew and captain were lovely and communicative."
Cons: "Our plane was very old and there were engine problems that kept us grounded for hours at JFK. I was terrified the entire time we were in the air that something might go wrong. Additionally, the air conditioner worked very poorly."
Pros: "I loved the delay."
Cons: "Sits are very tight."
Pros: "Airline crew was good. Attendant was appreciative for my daughter translating for her. There were two passengers who did not speak English. One spoke french and the other Spanish. The food provided was tasty."
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable, not enough leg room, too small ( I am a smaller person.). Did not like that could not reserve seats in advance without paying $50. Spent almost an hour with agent to get two bags checked for free. Iberia flight operated by American allowed two free bags. Agent took awhile to discover this was correct then she got locked out system. There was no regard that we had a flight to catch. No individual TV's."
Pros: "Food was decent"
Cons: "Informed VERY late that flight was delayed. Kept on being told a different time and then the flight was further delayed! Over 3 hours delayed. No movie on the flight."
Pros: "The boarding was quick"
Cons: "I am surprised that an 8 hr international flight, had no WIfi.. I had to continually ask and check the time with Crew members. This needs to change when the average seat is $800-900 and the flight holds 35 seats. AA is raking in WAY to much money to be this cheap. No WiFi and having to look up to the middle isle to watch a child's movie on repeat " Guardians of the Galaxy." My neck and back were in extreme discomfort from the 8 hr flight back to NYC. If AA had headrest monitors and WiFi this could be avoided. Its 2017 stop being cheap!"
Pros: "GREAT CREW! PILOT MADE UP TIME IN THE AIR DUE TO YHE DELAYED FLIGHT OUT OF MIAMI"
Cons: "THE FLIGHT WAS DELAYED DUE TO BAD WEATHER IN MIAMI."
Cons: "This is our honeymoon! Every single blessed thing you sent said British Airways, but it was really American. Ended up at wrong terminal. Staff uncaring, plane cramped, seat reservation not honored. The worst. You will be getting a letter on your deceptive practices and I am going to bury you on social media. Kevin Howard"
Cons: "4 hours delay and a plane with no tv or any kind of entertainment."
Pros: "Everything was smooth and organized. The flight even arrived early. Friendly crew and comfortable seats with extra leg room (but these were too expensive). Food was quite good for airline fare."
Cons: "Fee for more legroom."
Cons: "Your partner vayama doesn't provide the terminal or airline. Went to Iberia/ terminal 7 just to realize it was AA/terminal 8."
Pros: "Kind and courteous crew. Soft blanket for free."
Cons: "The seats were old and uncomfortable. There was no internet. There was no power for electronics. There was only one movie option (terrible selection) and the screens were spaced out so far I couldn't have seen it anyway. All of this would have been ok for a short flight but for an overseas flight it was the worst I've experienced."
Pros: "The crew for the most part were friendly. Boarding was easy enough"
Cons: "The one thing that stood out was that the flight attendants weren't offering water outside of the regular beverage service. I've never been on an international flight where there wasn't almost a constant flow of water. I was so parched after 8 hours. It seemed unusual. Also the seats are so small. I'm only 130 and 5'7" and it was a tough ride"
Pros: "It was ok...I always find paris-jeddah better than Frankfurt-jeddah (in food service, plane size, entertainment...etc)"
Cons: "Food level need to improve...The chicken meal was not well prepared, and the chicken needed to be cooked well... flight attendent was nice and switched to a beef meal."
Pros: "Food was good, crew was great"
Cons: "leg room was better than some but for a long flight it was tight"
Cons: "I lost my luggage in the final distention (Riyadh city, Saudi Arabia). I reported it, but no replay until now."
Cons: "The crew should be trained more on customer service"
Pros: "Crew was nice and attentive"
Pros: "It was basically a United flight instead of Air Canada. Had usuall good quality United service"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "More opportunities to eat Tim hortons"
Cons: "Having to wait 24hra to leave Canada"
Pros: "Seats rotate during recline. Washrooms are nice and big. Window shades are electronic. Dims the cabin but you can still see out. Very comfortable. Very stable in the air, like a 747. Great entertainment package. Free wine."
Cons: "Pretty much the worst food I’ve had and I’ve travelled a lot, all over the world. You would think on a flight to Paris that the food would be excellent?!!"
Cons: "Entertainment system was down for the entire flight"
Pros: "The seats were ridiculously small. It was so uncomfortable."
Cons: "The seats were ridiculously small. It was so uncomfortable."
Pros: "Space in the aircraft. Good customer service"
Cons: "Not much, if anything."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. Smooth flight except the usual unruly passengers"
Cons: "I cannot think of anything i didnt like"
Pros: "The flight was as good as it could be for a red eye."
Cons: "Had a long layover and then the fight was delayed. The food court at the airport is a mess no order and unorganized. The central bar was ok though."
Pros: "The crew and in flight entertainment were ok."
Cons: "Flight delays and poor information concerning the delays characterized the trip. I will not fly on Air Canada again. I should checked their reviews prior to booking with them - it appears this is a common problem."
Pros: "Flight crew was nice and helpful."
Cons: "The in-flight viewing service was not functioning. For an entire 6 hours and half, we couldn't watch movies or anything else."
Pros: "the pilot did a great job. the crew was nice."
Cons: "It was interesting to me that the plane used for a 4 hour flight (this one) was smaller than a plane used for a 1hr flight. I was uncomfortable the entire time. this was a redeye flight, departing at midnight. the cabin lights stayed on for the first hour making it impossible to dose off. we were given a 'snack' of a disgusting chicken wrap slathered in mayo. it was inedible. oh, and accompanied by a large kitkat bar. I mean. Who came up with this combo? there were no screens, no in flight entertainment unless you wanted to run down your phone battery or rent an ipad for $10. I was truly disappointed."
Pros: "Air Canada is great"
Pros: "Well organized and stress-free flow of people/services."
Pros: "friendly flight attendants good entertainment options"
Cons: "it was fine. I was pleasantly surprised after the first leg of my trip from Seattle to Toronto, where the staff were much less professional."
Pros: "On-time, friendly attendants, efficient boarding, comfortable flight, good entertainment choices, well-paced frequency of food and beverage service."
Cons: "Meal was mediocre."
Pros: "The entertainment options were great!"
Cons: "I was in a window seat and I asked for an aisle."
Pros: "Flight went fine - we got where we needed to get"
Cons: "Very cramped and fairly uncomfortable. Boarding was a free-for-all."
Pros: "at least we wereat a part of the wedding"
Cons: "first flight scheduled april 20 at 12:05pm cancelled. second flight for 4:15pm to laguardia cancelled. excuses for cancellation were given but not to our satisfaction. as a result we missed a good portion of the wedding we attended in new jersey"
Cons: "The seats were a little narrow and it made eating the meal a little difficult."
Pros: "Everything is bigger than. Economy! The seat, the screen, the meal, the service, and general comfort."
Cons: "When the seat in front reclined on you, you were basically trapped!"
Pros: "Good travel, pretty comfortable flight with Air Canada"
Cons: "Not the most amazing meal but well, not too bad for a plane meal."
Cons: "And I paid for the preferred upgrade"
Pros: "We needed a wheel chair assistance. From Toronto to the gate, it was very good."
Cons: "Much delay before take off without real announcement to that effect. Unbearably heat once we got on board and waiting to take off- afraid of fainting."
Pros: "I liked the boarding lines based on groups."
Cons: "Only was offered a small bag of mixed snacks and a drink."
Pros: "Captain had made up for delay we had at the take off so we came in Paris almost as planned."
Cons: "Crew and service was rushed our and food was handed to us without direst addressing or eye to eye contact. It was on bases "TAKE IT IF YOU WANT"."
Cons: "As expected with Air Canada, the service is awful with bitchy stewardesses, the food is poor, the plane is falling apart. Midway through the flight, the plane looked like a pigsty with garbage everywhere. When serving the meals, the stewardess just said to everyone, "You want it or not" and moved quickly with many people wondering why she was behaving so rudely. In addition, we couldn't get clear information about the baggage allowance. This is partially due to booking through Kayak where they don't tell you the baggage limit and some of the flights were code share flights even though all were with Air Canada. Couldn't tell if we had 1 or 2 bags included. This didn't help with our packing. In the end we had 2 bags and wish we bought more stuff."
Cons: "Even though we checked in early, and had a three hour layover, they managed to delay our bags. It will be also 36 hours until we have them."
Cons: "Needed subtitles on movies"
Pros: "The flight was on time and that is something really important to me. There was really no complaints about this flight"
Cons: "My headsets weren't working but it was a really minor problem."
Pros: "Wonderful crew, enjoyable flight!"
Cons: "Neighbor on flight was clueless to the rest of the world & left light on, video on, and used me as a pillow"
Cons: "Too much late. I missed all my itenerary planned by Campus France. I had to pay for a taxi and a new train ticket."
Cons: "In Toronto they told us that we most likely will miss our flight. Why?? Plenty of time!! No need for miss information. Ground crew not well trained.No boarding pass was given (which is fine). 1 hour wait because of power failure at the airport in Montreal and then we are about to take off and there was an engine failure so we had to come back again . Not good stuff!!!! How would you feel flying again air canada?"
Cons: "Never happened since the first fligh never landed. Has to be rebooked on a united flight which took me to destination."
Cons: "Flight attendants and customer service were horrible"
Cons: "Again flight delayed 4+ hours yet no email notifications whatsover"
Cons: "Seriously no leg room on long flight, uncomfortable, cramped Very delayed flight again."
Pros: "Entertainment options, crew were excellent."
Cons: "Food wasn't great. Dinner options were a bit of chicken with couscous and veggies or cavatappi with tomatoes. Breakfast was a piece of banana bread, which was good, but I'd have loved something with protein or a piece of fruit."
Pros: "I liked the fact that the flight ended."
Cons: "The "ping" concert. Since some designer genius (thanks, Boeing!) put all the controls in the armrest, exactly where any normal human being will rest his/her elbows, the controls keep activating every time you lay your elbow in the armrest. That means, your games will cancel and restart a thousand times, your volume will keep shifting from deafening to mute, and the button calling for help from the crew keeps going "ping" all over the plane. The crew ignored the calls, surely since they know what goes on with the plane, but I wonder what would happen if somebody really needed help. In addition to that, the seats are incredibly uncomfortable, narrower than ever and hard as brick. Every time I board a new plane I wonder what can they do to make it even worse, and plane designers never cease to amaze me with new medieval tortures."
Pros: "This was the usual flight. Nothing exceptional. The flight crew were very nice."
Cons: "It was dirty. A lot of trash."
Cons: "Cramped very crowded plane."
Pros: "Boarding experience and cleanliness of the plane. Much better entertainment experience than other air canada planes"
Cons: "Seats were horrible - did not recline at all (seat 23k)"
Cons: "Upon purchase of my airline tickets I was immediately shifted from Kayak to one of your support groups Airfare.com. On three separate occasions I contacted them on the phone and each different representative was either rude or aloof at best. This was my first and last time using Kayak services. Gabriela Bartlett"
Pros: "Everything Price Departure Flight Food, even the wine! Service Arrival Baggages Will certainly fly with again"
Pros: "Trip was fine. Staff were nice. Nothing special, though. Best part is we arrived safely."
Cons: "Flight staff was good; staff person I talked to on the phone the day before was impolite until I came right out and asked him not to be. Then, he changed and was much better helping confirm my flight info. THE AIRPORT IN TORONTO IS RIDICULOUSLY BIG. IT NEEDS A SHUTTLE OF SOME KIND. Elderly people and folks with disabilities would be exhausted, even with help from golf carts."
