When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty .

Cons: "Food on the four different flights (from DFW to Doha on to Cape Town and then from Johannesburg to Doha on to DWF) was not good at all. Timing of meals, food all below expected. One flight attendant trying to serve both meal and drink to each person took a lot of time. Snacks offerings were almost non-existent. Those of us traveling on three connecting flights with no time to purchase food nor water had a rough time of it. Would not fly Qatar nor connect in Doha again unless absolutely necessary."

Pros: "Food quality needs to improve, some chairs can't recline."

Pros: "The crew was very nice"

Pros: "The crew was excellent."
Cons: "The flight was late boarding everyone on time. It was delayed 1.5 hrs. The entertainment system had its fault, as it was difficult to navigate between screens.

The staff took me right to the flight gate, issue me the boarding past without me spending time to locate the transfer counter.. It was hassle free. Bravo! Please keep it up with this excellent service"
Cons: "The vegetarian food, noodle with bamboo shoot was too salty and plain."

Pros: "Service from the crew @ Qatar Airlines!"

Cons: "There should not be a pay wall around the internet in today's day and age"

Pros: "Being on time with everything."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was very kind."
Cons: "Th plain boarding took much longer, we flew in circles above JFK, waited for a gate for us, then waited for all passengers with connecting flights to get off because we were late and that resulted in a VERY long process for the rest of us. The descent into the airport was also not the smoothest, but it was a smaller plane."

Cons: "Nothing at all!"

Pros: "Again, Delta used to offer this level of comfort and service on domestic flights. Great food and entertainment selections."
Cons: "For some reason overweight people like to get the middle seat and then spill over into the adjacent seats. I had to lean out into the aisle to sit comfortably without touching that person. This resulted in me getting hit by every person walking in the aisle or the serviré carts. While I do understand that overweight people have the right to fly, they should pay for the space they occupy like the rest of us. This person literally should have had two seats."

Pros: "We got on we took off and arrived on schedule just as it should be."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The flight was good, Boarding was smooth and fast"
Cons: "I asked one of the crew members to help me to get a better seat as I was very tired and wanted to sleep better during the flight and he didnt pay attention to me. I realized there were emthy seats available during the flight"

Pros: "Service"

Pros: "Everything went smoothly."
Cons: "The row I chose for a seat was next to the bathrooms. Those seats don’t recline. Found it it’s very hard to sleep sitting upright. That made the flight and the first day of my international trip difficult. It would be nice for the sites seat selection feature to include such nfo on seats. I paid nearly $2000 for a shitty seat."

Cons: "We left late, it was delayed then maintenance issues. Twice. Seating was very tight and uncomfortable, no movies or entertainment at all. U.S. flights are the worst. Even on short flights with aeromexico outside the U.S. you get movies and food. Zero stars for comfort, food and entertainment."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Good"

Pros: "Fast and very friendly staff."

Pros: "On time"

Cons: "The engine noise in the plane was so loud I couldn't watch a movie. My gluten free meal was awful and tasteless. I would have preferred yogurt and fruit instead of the chicken and vegetables with a rice cake."

Pros: "Got Home !"
Cons: "Waited one hour sitting on board the aircraft for it to be fueled!! That's not what you want to do when you have to get home! The aircraft should be ready! And already fueled!"

Cons: "Flight was 7 hours delayed and every 2 hours of waiting they delayed the flight 2 more hours"

Pros: "No issue. Everything was good."
Cons: "Not much. Everything was good."

Cons: "Our carry-on luggage was taken away from us because the gate agent decided it looked too big. A family of four with luggage larger than ours was allowed to carry theirs on. Our luggage was then sent down to the baggage carousel at Baltimore. We took carry-on to avoid this. I don't think we will fly Delta again."

Pros: "Seats sized for a human and not a pencil or anyone under the age of 3, actual padding on the seats, (decision making executives may have possibly taken a flight themselves that wasn't in first class), amazing entertainment, friendly and professional staff. Overall this may have been THE MOST COMFORTABLE coach flight I've experienced since the airline industry started herding people like cattle. I think the armrests may have actually reached high enough to BE an armrest. Individual video in seat backs was perfect with touch screen and more movies than I could count, music, tv show series, and more. $2 headsets for sale if your forgot to bring yours. All in all this was a fantastic experience. Delta, keep this up and people will actually choose you over other airlines. I know I will."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight."

Pros: "Feel like reacist Company"
Cons: "I didnt like the treatment of the crew."

Pros: "Easy boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly on bot departure and return flights. Will make me reconsider Air France in the future."

Pros: "Good aircraft, good service, on time, eventless"
Cons: "There are two types of foot-rests, both are a nuisance for people with long legs. The one popping up from below one's seat is extremely hard to put back in place. The metallic one folding down from under the seat in front cannot be secured back and is always in the way if the passenger needs to stretch his/her legs. This seems to be a new appliance, and I jut wish they would do away with it altogether. More is not necessarily better."

Pros: "I"

Cons: "food"

Pros: "The crew was perfect"
Cons: "No wi fi on the plane."

Pros: "Crew were very good."
Cons: "No vegan food available."

Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "In-flight system had some problems and seats seemed a bit uncomfortable"

Pros: "The cabin crew were amazing and the seats very comfortable, even in economy. I'm not a super comfortable flyer so I loved that the pilot would always warn when we were getting into turbulence. 2 thumbs up. I will fly Air France again"
Cons: "I'd appreciate a better selection of food and drinks, even if I have to pay for the drinks."

Pros: "Quick boarding, comfortable seating. Great food!"
Cons: "The seats and IFE were a bit outdated. Comfortable, but outdated. My family had issues with their screens and one had to use the remote as the touch screen was no longer functional."

Pros: "It was only 2 hours"
Cons: "Small plane, no movies"

Pros: "The only thing that I like about the flight was that it was easy to boarding"
Cons: "The food was not heat correctly it was cold and I felt that the crew rush to give out the food. The seats are terrible, if the person in front of you reclines you won’t be able to see the screen if your watching a movie and you will see the top of the persons head."

Pros: "Food was good. Crew nice and professional."
Cons: "Landing was not so smooth."

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "I like fly attendant who served us meal"
Cons: "I didn’t like that space between each seat is small"

Pros: "The crew were nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was horrible and it involved climbing down steep stairs from the air tunnel to the tarmac to board a bus that took us to a far distance where the plane was parked. Had to new walk in the sweltering heat to the plane can climb up steep stairs in the heat! We were now kept in the plane for another hour with no aircondotion. It was boiling hot in there. We had to use the safety manuals to fan ourselves. We eventually left late and got to Lagos one and half hours we were meant to get there. Lastly not all the luggage arrived. Two days into my arrival and I am yet to get all my luggage. It was truly a horrible experience which was echoed by fellow passengers."

Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "We were transported to the plane which was quite some distance to the plane via bus after climbing down steep stairs from the departure gate area. Then we had to climb steep steps in extremely hot weather. We were then delayed for a hour in the plane in very hot conditions as the plane had its air conditioning off and the ground air conditioning was not put on. We were swearing in the heat for an hour!! We arrived at our destination and hour and half late!!"

Pros: "The plane arrived in New York smoothly"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and have no information as to where it is. It has been 3 days and no Information. There was only one meal for the flight and alcoholic beverages were not included."

This policy applied even to people with Economy Premium for the rest of the trip (which allows 2 carry-on suitcases, not a useful feature if one cannot begin with this number to reach the transoceanic flight)."

Pros: "On time after latish start"
Cons: "Staff took carryon bags even for skypriority even tho lots of room in overhead, allegedly to speed deplaning. Nowarning to repack. Infuriating and stubborn staff!"

Cons: "T5 needs many more drinking fountains."

Pros: "The planes departed and landed on time."
Cons: "My bag remained in London during flight change.Have direct flights to avoid such cases."

Cons: "Older plane that only upgraded business and first class. Standard class seats and entertainment old and nominally functional. Felt more like a third world country than what I'm used to on BA"

Pros: "Had to pay for water on an international flight. That felt like buckle and diming."

Pros: "Only thing I liked was the travel time to destination as it was the quickest flight due to circumstances and time I needed to travel."
Cons: "I didn't like near enough everything about this flight."

Pros: "Ease of boarding, no fuss no muss. Premium economy worth the price"
Cons: "Kosher food was frozen - inedible. Chicken dry. Worst meal ever on a plane"

Pros: "The entertainment and the service"
Cons: "Both legs delayed, almost missed connection due to delay and the crew on the flight didn't seem to care. When we asked if they could inform the next flight that our flight wasn't delayed, the stewards response was "our planes don't wait for anyone". Real friendly. Wish Southwest flew to Europe!!!!"

Pros: "New plane, very comfortable seating. The headphones in biz class were awesome, forgot I was on the plane. Overall best American Airlines flight and I do fly them a lot. Also liked the dual screens option."
Cons: "The seat control in the touch pad - not conveniently placed"

Pros: "Everything that BA is not; excellent crew & food"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Not absolutely full so space overhead was available, allowing some foot room."

Pros: "Polite considerate staff and more comfortable aircraft."
Cons: "Shame there are no free snacks or drinks on board anymore."

Pros: "Good and on time flight. Loved the information given by all crews."
Cons: "My bags arrived a day later on 25th night which caused alot of inconviniency because i had to travel back to the Airport the following day for my cloths. The baggage handlers opened my bags and removed some items which is unacceptable . Stressed still about that"

Cons: "The seat arrangement is awkward with very tight seats. Little room for storing personal items and no privacy whatsoever on aisle seats. Entertainment system needs updating. Moving map was not working."

Pros: "Boarding was smooth, the attendants attendant, the food surprisingly good, and the entertainment outstanding. An entire library of in-flight movies, a display of where your flight is in the world, a few in-lfight games and even an in-flight chatroom."
Cons: "A few times, I feel like the attendants either didn't notice me."

Pros: "Food was good. Special meal request was well handled. Not lost in the shuffle."
Cons: "See comments under Chicago -London flight above"

Pros: "The check in process was very nice and smooth. The staff was so nice and friendly. Flight attendants were very nice too."
Cons: "The seats are just too squished. For a ten hour flight, it was SO uncomfortable."

Pros: "Great crew"

Pros: "So ridiculous airline didn’t though in costumer at all"
Cons: "Nathing"

Pros: "Take off 20 minute early. Super on time."
Cons: "The food can be better."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "I paid extra to pick seats for my fiance and I and when we arrived at the gate, they had changed my seat without any advance notification"

Cons: "Not being delayed for 6 hours would’ve been better."

Pros: "The crew was fantastic and very nicely got us into an earlier flight and allowed my wife and I to sit together for our 10th anniversary"
Cons: "The entertainment apps were difficult to use"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and the plane was comfortable and clean."

Cons: "Holding back the departing passengers so those with connections could exit first"

Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "AMERICAN IS THE WORST. Never flying with them again. My flight was cancelled, &they would NOT rebook me until 2 days later. REFUSED to compensate for the hotel I booked for the night. Held my baggage hostage & would not return it for a whole day. And their customer service is non-existent."

Pros: "The plane was very quiet"
Cons: "I don’t like the stand to put your own iPads on. Just give us the screens. Seems cheap for a 5+ hour flight. Come on american."

Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. There was enough room for carry on in the overhead compartments and the in flight entertainment system was great with an easy access usb charging port."
Cons: "Seats we’re small, no room to place anything in the pocket in front of me and the chairs were so small that all the people next to me had no room to move. None of them were extremely big people, but they didn’t have room for their hands and feet, so they were all in my space. The isle was too narrow"

Pros: "Crew was outstanding."
Cons: "I had to check my carry on."

Cons: "maintenance. We left late due to a maintenance issue. Once the flight attendant notification alarm went off for 15 minutes."

Cons: "They left my bags behind and told me they weren’t even checked in Worst customer service ever"

Pros: "On-time departure and arrival, friendly ground staff and flight attendant"

Pros: "The new plane!"
Cons: "Hmmm, everything. First we didn’t get the seats we selected, then we had to pay an extra 800 for my family to sit together. Took about an hour waiting on the tarmac. Then to top it off American Airlines broke my stroller and NO apology. Never again with a third party site or American Airlines"

Cons: "My seat was broken and would not recline, i mentioned it to the stewardness and even though there were other empty seats they did not offer to move me."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Took off 40 minutes late, rude attendants, very hot on plane, no apologies from staff for being late. Worst flight in a long time."

Pros: "Snack was a good portion. Filling for a 5 hour flight"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work for my seat. No movies available"

Pros: "I had a connection flight to JFK I came before the time about 15 min and crew saw me but she told me, sorry someone took your seats I lost around 4000$. This happened at Dallas airport."

Pros: "I upgraded to a premium seat I was assigned a seat in the middle very uncomfortable when there were empty seats three rows ahead should not have been a problem"

Pros: "Perfect flight and 40 minutes early!"

Pros: "Flight attendant was great; talkative, funny, entertaining."
Cons: "Inclement weather"

Pros: "The airline staff was SO kind and helpful. I'm an AA fan now!"

Pros: "Crew. There was very long delay."
Cons: "Too cramped. Long delay could have been made better but ongoing announcements from airline, but this was often late."

Cons: "The airline charged me $50 for my carry on even though they told me I could hate check it earlier. Apparently they changed their mind and I am $50 poorer. This is after being a loyal American card member for over 10 years. BS."

Pros: "Mechanical issues caused a 75 minute delay in taking off."
Cons: "Several delays"

Pros: "price"
Cons: "seats should be priced based on passengers' weight."

Pros: "Everything went very well."
Cons: "No room between seats."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They had a delay that bumped our international connection. We had to switch airports and airlines and arrived significantly later than originally planned, causing us to miss pre-wedding events."

Cons: "I bought through an affiliate (bought British, flew American) and was not redirected properly to the check in process. In fact I was locked out of the check in process for "unsuccessful attempts""

Cons: "Briish Airways does not fly to JFK from Edinburgh. I paid for a flight that apparently did not exist. I had to purchase another flight from another airline on top of the flight that I booked with Kayak. I was supposed to fly to my original airport, but I had to fly to a tiny little airport upstate and pay for a bus to get me back to NYC. I doubt I'll see any of that money I lost in the initial transaction..."

Pros: "Plenty of food and drink on the flight. Having your own choice of movies and TVs to watch helped pass the time."

Pros: "The food and drink were abundant and served at a decent pace. The boarding seemed quick and I was able to get to my seat quickly."
Cons: "I had a 2 hour layover to switch from my BA flight to my American Airlines flight in Heathrow, but since I, and every other AA passenger had to wait in line to reprint my boarding pass to an AA boarding pass after we had taken the bus to the terminal, I waited about 45 minutes in that line. Then we had to go through security again. By the time I made it to my gate the flight said it was "closing." We took off about 15 minutes after that. The "hot box" snack had goat cheese and I'm not a fan."

Cons: "Flight was very delayed"

Pros: "On time. Smoothest landing ever."
Cons: "Some of the food."

Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."

Cons: "We bought the tickets with 1 luggage included. In the check in, the y charged us!"

Pros: "The crew was very efficient and friendly while handling everyone. Flight was smooth, food was good. I went to the wrong terminal and did not know that the advertised finair flight was actually American Airlines, the AA ticket counter attendant went all out to make sure I made it to the gate. All this with less than an hour before departure."
Cons: "I went to the wrong terminal, the email ticket had finair in large print and in smaller print indicated American. Luckily I was able to literally run and make my flight. Would be better to more clearly indicate actual airline."

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: "No hassle. Drinks provided. No complaints."

Cons: "There was no entertainment option available in the plane we flew in."

Pros: "Having an open seat next to me."
Cons: "Seats a bit snug."

Pros: "Great customer service from the ticketing agents, gate agents, flight attendants and pilots!"

Pros: "It was great!"

Pros: "Nice crew. Comfortable plane."
Cons: "The Cusco airport was a mess! Long delay an changed the gate twice"

Pros: "The entertainment, the crew were very hospitable. The flight was on time"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "No Free Wi-Fi"
