Cons: they cancelled by booking just before hour depature..

Pros: The service is excellent. Best of the airlines bar nane
Cons: The grill chicken that comes w/ the scrambled egg breakfast was kinda dry. Otherwise, all’s good.

Pros: Very packed and no leg space

Pros: The crew were very friendly
Cons: The boarding was delayed

Pros: service attitude

Pros: Q-suites and business class flight crew.
Cons: Everything from check in up to boarding. Ground staff lacked hospitality. Disappointing frequent flyer program.

Pros: I loved the service. All of the attendants were really nice and helpful.
Cons: My tv on both 12 hr and 8 hr flights didn’t work well and the food wasn’t the best. Also they ran out of food options when they got to me twice.

Pros: The Crew has been excellent
Cons: When I arrived at the Airport in Arusha (JRO) my reserved row 23 aisle seats for the DOH to JFK segment were changed to the (last cabin section row 31); also my aisle seat was changed to a middle seat Food was better from JFK to DOH Entertainment was lacking - movie and TV selection was poor for 20+ hours of flight time

Pros: Great Staff
Cons: Asian Vegetarian meals needs some improvement. Lack of Africans as part of the crew.

Pros: If you upgrade...it’s pricey but man doesn’t it look nice. Their regular seats are great. Get an emergency seat. Food isn’t kosher and tastes good. Never one complaint with these guys!
Cons: If I had to pick one thing...it’s that their free WiFi is only on select planes...not all. Sorry nothing else to dislike.

Cons: The seats were cramped

Pros: I really enjoyed the flight, which was almost 15 hours long. I give an overall 4 star review for this flight. The boarding process was pretty organized (without including the ignorant passengers who can't read their zone numbers, haha) because they called us up group by group, in a speedy process. Even inside, the cabin crew welcomed us aboard and showed us where our seats are. This leads me to my 5-star rating of the service. Very warm, friendly, and generally helpful cabin crew Qatar Airways has. They fulfilled all my needs even if they had to go out of their way. As for entertainment, I was very surprised at how many great movies they have! Especially the new ones! I would not be bored again with this selection. Food was okay to be honest. It was a hot meal that satisfied my hunger and tasted good, but maybe it's just me and airplane food. Doesn't taste right for me. And to be honest, I was cramped. Not even me but many other passengers felt like the seats were too small. Overall, Good experience!

Cons: Seats are way uncomfortable and small

Pros: The plane from Johannesburg to Doha was Fine but not as wonderful and comfortable As flight from Doha to Chicago

Pros: Liked the in flight movie great distraction for the time.

Pros: Qatar airways is the best in middle East

Pros: Felt like a new plane, with great service!

Cons: It's been more than 50 hours and I still haven't received both of my checked in luggage and I am getting no straightforward answer

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . 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 . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you

Cons: Seats

Pros: Love it. Newer airplane; state of the art high-tech.

Pros: I like Qatar Airways very much. Ground and air personnel are all professional and courteous. I will fly Qatar every time I can.

Pros: The food on foreign airlines is so much better than on american airlines (they even offer something in economy class on short local flights).
Cons: The seat spacing on the 70-minute flisght was a little cramped - it would be even worse for a taller person than I (at 5'10").

Pros: Quick boarding/ friendly ground staff as well as the cabin crew! Food was great(even though I don't normally eat plane food) but I enjoyed their meals! Plenty of leg room with the seat compared to other airlines I have flown with! Free wifi on certain planes(even though for 15 mins, better than nothing!)
Cons: Could have a bit more choice of movies but wasn't bad

Pros: Overall it was a nice flight however some areas need some attention. Boarding gates were very crowded and there was no crowd management in the small area. Secondly, the food was not at all upto the mark. If you are serving sandwich atleast make it flavorful or just serve drinks on this short flight with nuts/biscuits/chocolate.
Cons: Read on the left.

Cons: Food choices could be better.

Pros: Left on time. Great pilot and crew - very concerned about our welfare. Quick flight. Nice aircraft.

Cons: Steep decline in food quality

Pros: The flight was short but the plane was well maintained and the crew was accommodating.
Cons: The boarding process started too early and some of the passengers were annoying as they jump over you because they were not directed to the correct aisle.

Cons: Realised that for short flights they do not supply headsets. This is rather strange, since the media content they have is useless unless there are headsets / paid or free whichever

Pros: Great flight

Pros: The crew were excellent
Cons: The plane was too small and lots of turbulence

Pros: the comfort of the flight was very good.
Cons: there could have been a little bit bigger portion of food.

Pros: Excellent!

Pros: A380 - was amazing. Roomy and quite

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Rudeness of check in staff Disorganized, slow and chaotic screening process for transfer passengers (only two machines for thousands hundred passenger) Near- or semi-illiterate ground staff

Cons: No entertainment

Pros: Seating arrangement Food Menu and Timing Options Fruit and chocolates available at Service Station Wines Selections Entertainment Service gives a very personalized feeling of care
Cons: I liked the experience fully have nothing negative to comment about

Cons: Breakfast could have been offered.

Cons: Slight delay

Cons: It was all good ✈️

Cons: Add A Display Board For When Cabin Sections Are Boarding

Pros: Our flight crew were great. Pilots were great too.
Cons: I missed my connection due to weather in Minneapolis. Was diverted into Milwaukee, but nope we are diverted to Chicago, but wait no we go to Milwaukee. Deboard into a close gate area. Rest rooms were closed. Then once refueling is done get back on and make Minneapolis at 12:15 am. Connection missed

Pros: Yes very clean plane and crew was amazing. My daughter was hungry and the crew filled her bottle with milk twice
Cons: Maybe better snack

Cons: Crew was grouchy and rushed past you without really trying to cater to your needs/ get you what you want.

Pros: I loved Craig on our flight he made it a hilarious and fun experience! And he needs a raise!
Cons: The seat was a bit uncomfortable, and boarding was slow. To be expected I assume for anything not first class.

Cons: Flight was delayed.

Pros: That we landed an hour early.
Cons: That the seats were so cramped.

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 Delta staff in the Augusta airport seemed to have a hard time with getting people boarded - the instructions for what zone was being boarded and who could take what baggage or who was going to need to gate check bags was... not good.

Cons: Did not serve the food we asked Limited choice of movies

Pros: The food was good Flight was on time plane was clean loved the crew! Flew out with them, and returned with them... so that was nice!
Cons: Not knowing we were being bused to plane from Terminal Boarded early because of it, created a bit of chaos and panic My tv was broken- worked intermittently need connector for iphone ear buds - should have universal ports

Pros: Very nice stewardess on this plane. Seating was excellent.
Cons: Crew was not apologetic after we missed connecting flight due to technical difficulties with their plane. I was re-routed to Barcelona and then a very budgetary Airlines to Athens which was ridiculously tight again with seating and flight was almost an hour late. Luggage didn't come until following day. And to top it off, I thought I would be flying with KLM on both legs!

Pros: Fast easy on time

Cons: 6 hours late. Unacceptable.

Cons: . The flight was overbooked and I had to wait for last minute to find out weather I will be on board of the flight .My bags were left behind in Amsterdam which were delivered later than they were supposed to.

Cons: Bumpy ride. Nobody's fault.

Pros: The plane was really nice. It was awesome being able to view movies on the flight.

Pros: The fact I arrived safely
Cons: Delayed 40 min then boarded the plane without pilots. Waited another 30 mins for pilots and by the time they got there and settled weather delayed. Sat on plane for another 30 mins then were finally let off the plane. Quiet announcements for reboard most passengers late. Then waited in line for take off for another 25 min. Whole thing was poorly executed. Would expect better from a large airline

Pros: Overall everything was great would definitely recommend delta to others .

Pros: Long haul business class seat.
Cons: Wheelchair service. Poor services at China airport. Connection flight is very small and seats are poor! They made pay to use the lounge at NY airport although my ticket is business class !!

Pros: Great service

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

Cons: When checkin documents The lady was having conversations and I had to run from C to E. Then through the line I had to step aside again because my boarding pass was invalid. Many steps to check documents but still at the actual gate the documents had to be checked again.

Cons: The female flight attendant needs an attitude adjustment. She behaved as though she was doing a favor

Cons: Terrible baggage check and security lines (even Pre-Check!) at JFK Teeminal 1 (AirFrance).

Pros: The in flight entertainment was superb.
Cons: I have no complaints.

Pros: Food available for purchase. Entertainment system.

Pros: The crew was very nice and attentative.

Pros: Service

Pros: Everything except food. I asked them for halal food when I bought tickets. But they didn't serve me halal food. Very very disappointed.
Cons: Food and food.

Cons: No meal service in first class.

Pros: Great flight. Excellent pilot and the head steward or whoever was giving us update information was excellent.
Cons: Would have liked a meal offered after a long delay.

Pros: Fast and very friendly staff.

Pros: Delta automatically rebooked our flight due to delays. We were rebooked on Air Canada

Pros: Extra leg room with Sky priority
Cons: We upgraded to Sky priority but we're not allowed to load with Sky priority. They made us wait for Zone 3. We also did not get the designated overhead space we paid for and had to put our bags under the seat in front of us. A bit disappointing to pay $240 extra and not get what we paid for.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: 3.5 hour delay due to lack of co-pilot. No consessions for delay when asked at gate. Lack of leg room. Broken tv, I asked twice to be fix nothing was ever done.

Pros: No fee to get on an earlier flught
Cons: When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option

Pros: everything on schedule; courteous staff and great pilots
Cons: everything was very ordinary so cannot complain

Pros: Clean, polite, informed
Cons: Delayed

Pros: The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful.
Cons: Boarding class and queuing for boarding is always a clusterf***. People will crowd the gate and board with the wrong class and that creates anxiety and leads to edginess. If a system could be worked out and enforced that would help.

Pros: Product was excellent, the whole experience was amazing.

Pros: We liked the personalized tv screens on the back of each chair that allowed us to watch free movies. The flight crew was very nice as well.
Cons: We were delayed on our first leg of the flight so go into SL late but was relieved to see that our second leg was also running about 30 minutes late. Made for a very late night getting home and needing to be to work the next morning.

Pros: The captain was informative about the delay in taxiing/takeoff, and the in-flight beverages were good.
Cons: I was in a middle seat.

Pros: everything was good
Cons: nobody mentioned how to get to connection gates ,so me and 2 more people followed everyone ,exited and missed our connection to Riga

Pros: Crew was great, on time flight, clean plane.
Cons: Entertainments options were shockingly few. Honestly have not been on a plane recently with so few and limited options of TV series and movies. I was extremely surprised. Wish I had know and I would’ve had more options for my family.

Pros: Yes, Very good

Pros: The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep.

Pros: I liked how generous they were with food and drinks
Cons: Free WiFi could have made the flight a lot better

Pros: Terrific hot breakfast in bus. class
Cons: Window did not darken like the others.

Pros: KLM are our airline of choice. A great full-service carrier with impecable standards.
Cons: Nothing

Cons: All of the less than good, obvious!

Pros: Almost everything, especially the crew.
Cons: Don’t feel like anything should be better to be honest

Cons: The flight from Manchester to Amsterdam has been delayed which led insufficient time for me to transfer to HK

Pros: Crew were great
Cons: Refreshments

Pros: The crew was attentive and the seat at economy comfort was comfortable at the “ok” level. It needs much mor3 to be super comfortable. The plug for the headphones was a mess! It was NOT possible to watch a movie and hear the sound too! I gave up! Not a great offering for the extra dollars...
Cons: So many things! Starting with the way assistance in the airport is offered to travellers with mobility issues! This is an important issue that needs to be revisited and changes for better service to be made!

Pros: Amazing services .. on time just exactly .. I feel really happy onboard KLM ❤️

Pros: Cabin facilities
Cons: They didn’t bring one of my bags

Cons: I bought tickets thrue you for me two months ago Iit went well but on the last few days I also bought ticked for my brother and his wife and it was a disaster night mare for them bound for Montpellier too to attend a wedding the damn suitcase didn’t get to final destination it was at Orlando but got

Pros: Nice seats. Only seats with a row of 2, which is what I wanted,

Pros: Smooth and faster than expected trip. I felt free to get up and walk around on this long flight. Food was good. I sat in seat with extra leg room for the first time and it was worth it

Pros: Once aboard the plane, all went well and I experienced excellent service from the cabin attendants.
Cons: The flight was delayed (again!) for some 40 minutes and I was worried that I would miss my connection flight in Atlanata. Fortunately the pilot made up for the delay (probably costing the airline thousands in fuel). It seems these days that every KLM flight I take is delayed. This stretch goes back to 2015! Yet KLM prides itself as being punctual. Not the KLM that I have been flying!

Pros: They considered my reguest of vegiterian food.
Cons: I have no complaints.

Pros: Entertainment options.
Cons: Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible.

Pros: Very personable staff. Food acceptable for airline fare. Ticket price was outstanding.
Cons: Paid for extra legroom, but very narrow seats not comfortable. Very difficult to sleep. Old plane--could not hear movies and unclear screen. Music sounded OK and choice was good.

Cons: I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable.

Pros: Very friendly and helpful crew.

Pros: Efficient crew
Cons: Long, slow line at check in. Not many new movies or tv shows

Pros: The crew was efficient. Flight left on time. Food and wine served.
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: Comfort was better than on the previous Dash-8. Food was OK.
Cons: Despised the cold temperature and cold draft in world business even with all vents shut off...gave me a head cold. Boarding was disorganized. There was no sense of direction; ergo, everyone was jumping in.

Pros: Everything excellent. Comfortable seats in business.

Pros: Able to fly direct to ansterdam
Cons: Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines.

Pros: Good services!

Pros: I got some rest
Cons: unable to charge my phone or watch movies

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Bit cramped for space

Pros: Pleasant flight

Cons: Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot.

Pros: Seats were comfortable
Cons: Flight was delayed by 2 hours. Could have gone to Amsterdam and come back in that time

Pros: The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections
Cons: The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming..

Cons: KLM crews look unhappy with their work. Everything they do is a favor not duty.

Pros: Excellent experience with the cabin crew.
Cons: Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor.

Pros: Good efficient flight crew friendly and helpful

Cons: Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen.

Cons: Flight was delayed 8 hours. Arriving at Incheon, discovered ground crew were unaware of our arrival to take this connecting flight. However, we were put up overnight in a hotel, which was nice.

Pros: Usual professional and friendly service from my airline of choice for most destinations.
Cons: Nothing

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...

Pros: Boarding/unboarding
Cons: Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it.

Pros: Eveything is well arranged
Cons: Nothing

Pros: Of the multiple international airlines I recently flew with, I would have to say KLM was by far the best. Relaxing atmosphere, comfortable seating, great in-flight entertainment, although I have the go-go in-flight data/entertainment plan with t-mobile (highly recommended), the flight included a decent selection of movies, television programs, etc. The food far exceeded typical "airline quality," even for an international flight - and included a fabulous little snack box with locally sourced gourmet and specialty items such as chocolate from Belgium, fine cheeses from France, and crackers from England. Drinks = gratis, and crew was exceptionally attentive and went out of their way to make flight as pleasant as possible.
Cons: Nothing.

Pros: Priority boarding was appreciated and the flights were on time. Service was fine. Schipol was good.

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

Cons: Our flight was canceled from Amsterdam to Bordeaux and did not receive any direction and had to find alternate flights for ourselves with the personal expense of using our own cell phones. Then our luggage lost for 3 days. Not happy! We ended up flying from Toronto to Paris then to Bordeaux. Lost my upgrade money for seats. Now have to deal with KLM for refund!

Pros: The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane.
Cons: It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open.

Pros: Only the speed of the flight. The seat was terrible! No pitch, no room, squeezed in like sardines. The crew spent most of their time hawking BA products. Embarrassing.
Cons: More room! It was excruciating, and I am not a large person. The boarding process was chaotic and confused. Took a very long time. The only good part of the flight was that the pilot provided a smooth and quick (thankfully, because the rest was pretty miserable) time in the air. BA has become worse than Ryanair.

Cons: Flight left late from London.

Cons: Nothing

Pros: They kept us up to date throughout the whole process
Cons: I could have had a seat next to my thirteen year old and I didn’t get my seat arrangements unit I was boarding the plane.

Pros: The flight was short and smooth
Cons: Will not fly this airline again. They charge less for online checkin and payment for checked bags than at the airport, except app didn’t allow payment so had to pay full price at ticket counter. Ticket agent wouldn’t do anything about it or answer any questions, horrible customer service.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Crews service

Pros: The Dubai Red-Eye. Crew always ready with more fluids through the flight.... only proviso... being able to walk disembarking.....

Pros: On time depature
Cons: Little amount of snacks available Small quantity of food for the meal

Pros: The plane was huge with lots of empty seats. This is better than my flight out, which was oversold (I was the person who didn't have a seat, until just before departure when someone else didn't show up). The seats appeared to be new.
Cons: The flight was delayed by an hour. No information was available about what gate the delayed flight would be departing from, which made it difficult to relax while waiting due to fears of missing the flight whenever it finally took off. The electronic flight list said to check the monitor at 6:38pm to find out what gate would be used (for a 5:30pm flight). I checked the monitor at 6:14 and it said the flight was boarding. This seems like a recipe for making people miss the flight. At the very least it made things stressful. No free food/beverages were provided (some is available at a cost). A family with a very tired baby was forced to wait in a huge long line rather than being pre-boarded. That just seems discourteous to me.

Pros: We loved the safety video. The seats were comfortable
Cons: No complimentary sodas or water.

Pros: short flight, no issues
Cons: nothing of importance

Pros: Crew was great. Accommodating and welcoming.
Cons: Food quality could have been better. Snack was very poor before landing.

Cons: Absolutely no leg room despite paying additional fee

Pros: Fast service. No delays. Free baggage check in
Cons: Not so much as a free water let alone tea or coffee

Pros: The plane was tidy and arrived in Venice early. Boarding was orderly.
Cons: There was no entertainment.

Pros: We made it
Cons: Might be the London airport but we did not know what gate to go to until boarding time.

Cons: Didn’t realize you had to pay for coffee or a non-alcoholic drink until after we were asked what we’d like to drink.

Cons: I wish we would have been offered something to drink that was complimentary.

Cons: Very lethargic service and no serving of snacks in between meals

Pros: Quick
Cons: Nothing. The flight was quick and boarding was easy

Cons: 2 Hour Delay

Pros: Great value for the money, nicely priced round trip. Very well scheduled flights, good connections, easy to travel.
Cons: Little legroom on long flights, no wi fi on board overseas flights, even for purchase. No food available on Europe international flights, but for purchase.

Pros: Especially the flight attendants took very good care of my infant. I'm very much impressed with their service.

Pros: Only wish they would've put me on the direct flight
Cons: The transfer was a pain. Signage at Toronto Airport is non existent. I had to stop and ask people which way to go 3 times

Pros: Quiet flight lots or spare seats - good price. Food pretty good
Cons: Viewing sets stowed in front of rows old and not easy to move

Pros: The second plane did not break.
Cons: The first plane broke. We had to reboard. By the time we left i should have already landed.

Pros: The crew was wonderful
Cons: Since it was British Air, we would have had to pay $800 total to get seat assignments in advance. Because I refused to pay this exorbitant amount, my wife and I got whatever seats were leftover as assigned by BA's computer. As it was, there computer was all screwed up and we couldn't see our seat assignments or check in online and had to do that at the airport. Others reported getting tangled up with BA's computer system.

Pros: That food and drinks, including wine, were served for free. That the on board entertainment had lots of options that were well rated, recent, and were all free. The touchscreen was the best I've seen so far on airlines
Cons: The flight map was not working and the attendant didn't know what we were flying over (probably Greenland).

Pros: Boarding was easy.
Cons: My flight was delayed after we were already on the plane. We weren’t offered any complimentary snacks or beverages, most likely because it was a “short 2 1/2 hour flight.” Flight took longer than originally stated.

Pros: The entertainment selections were awesome.
Cons: The passenger in front of me reclined so far, he was basically on my lap. It made it difficult to see the screen and eat dinner, which was subpar. The person behind me kept poking me in the back. I couldn't figure out how or why. I could've used more arm rest as both people on either side of me took the arm rest. So basically I was surrounded on all sides by inconsiderate people, who were probably as cramped as I was.

Pros: We got to our destination safely..
Cons: No frills flight, not even water. Had to be seated separately from my wife. Hard landing

Pros: Service
Cons: It was very cold! Too much air conditioning.

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: British Airways lounges at Newark and London were good places to relax and have decent food and drinks selections.
Cons: British Airways in-air entertainment and food options in aconomy leave much to be desired.

Pros: I made it to Paris and I guess that's what's important
Cons: You could offer small bottles of water as a courtesy Flight Attendants are definitely rude. Not to me, but I watched them interact with other passengers and they are just baseline.. rude.

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

Cons: We arrived over an hour early to bag check for our flight, stood around for 30 minutes while the staff chatted, and then when they finally started checking bags, we were told our flight was already closed. When we said we'd been waiting they called us liars and forced us out of the line. We had to stay in Paris 2 more days.

Pros: Punctual on time
Cons: A measly bar for breakfast, even Michael O Leary would laugh at that.

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: This crew on this flight was so courteous and helpful. Loved them!
Cons: The boarding process is a bit of a cluster. No lines, just everybody crowding around until their group is called. Seems like it could be better organized.

Pros: They blackmailed my daughter pay an additional $940.00 for a return flight bcus here flight was over 90 days.
Cons: Purchase was allowed by Kayak and BA. This should not have taken place.

Pros: Cabin crew were great -- personality and lots of fun. Plane seemed relatively new too.
Cons: BA service is basically Ryanair now, but more expensive.

Pros: I was traveling alone with my baby. Everyone was very helpful

Pros: staff were good
Cons: out of date entertainment food

Pros: The pilot communjcated very well and was able to keep passengers calm during the heavy turbulence.
Cons: I was only allowed ONE free bag for an international flight??? Totally unheard of. This was my first time flying BA and it will certainly be my last. For a 12hr flight, we were only fed ONCE! And only had very old movies to watch

Pros: nothing-
Cons: I flew about 1 million miles and truly felt like a sardine- absolutely NO leg room and very archaic entertainment system. NEVER AGAIN !

Cons: We reserved for passenger in Business class From Dubai to London to Dubai . But From London to Dubai BA offered passenger Economy class the passenger reserved business class but they put him in Economy and the reason they said the flight is over booked. The passenger has heart problem and knee problem we reserved for him in business class to assure he will get the maximum care but in despite of his health conditions and in despite that he reserved in business class they put him in economy class

Pros: Everything is ok
Cons: The journey to take the last flight was too long. I almost missed my flight. Secondly my suitcase was missing on arrival

Pros: Crew and airport stuff

Pros: The crew was very nice
Cons: Entertainment system did not work. We asked the stewardess to reset it three times, which was done each time, but was still not working. Seats could have been bigger.

Cons: There were several gate changes and delays. My boarding pass gate information did not mirror the gate information on the terminal screen. When I asked the AA employee at the counter to verify the departure gate, he was extremely rude. I understand gate changes and flight delays may be expected, but it made for an awful experience.

Cons: It could have been cleaner. I wiped the arm rest with my disinfectant wipes and that arm rest was dirty! I wiped everything else around me. Not clean at all

Pros: excellent service very happy with the crew
Cons: Better food

Cons: Food options that arent flour carbs or flour carbs.

Pros: Great crew

Pros: Flight attends are very friendly.

Cons: The flight was delayed so I have to re-book my whole trip. I was being told first that I was going to make my connecting flight, and then rushed to the new gate due to terminal re-assigned, and then told that I won't make it to the connecting flight so I have to go to the re-booking counter. And then at the counter being told that I could have made it. Very confusing.

Pros: Mostly pleasant flight crew
Cons: Better gate agent and mechanics

Pros: Seats were comfortable
Cons: Provide coffee at least

Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing

Pros: Most was pretty standard. We did arrive 30 minutes early, which was nice.
Cons: My bag was checked at the gate, and I was told I could pick it up in Sint Maarten, my final destination. I arrived in Sint Maarten to learn that AA had left my luggage at Charlotte Airport, despite having landed 30 minutes early.

Cons: Commuter jets- uncomfortable.

Pros: Good trip
Cons: Nothing wrong

Cons: Flight was 90 min late due to mechanical issue. Missed next two flights, was rebooked in coach vs paid for first class.

Pros: na
Cons: AA has a tendency of delaying flights.

Pros: Food and service was very good.
Cons: Relocating us to vacant seats so that we weren't crammed all together.

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

Pros: Staff were nice and the pilot got us to Asheville faster than expected.
Cons: Due to the short trip there weren’t on trip snacks or drinks. Not necessarily bad, but can’t give them a high rating for it if it’s not offered.

Cons: Nothing problem. Excellent flight ✈️

Pros: They got another flight for us
Cons: 4 hour delayed

Cons: Taxied for two hours, then returned for fuel and discovered an engine problem. Had to change aircraft. No food or entertainment system.

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 loved everything. No complaints. American airlines is one of the best airlines I have flown with.

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

Cons: Delays and more delays

Pros: Too many commercials on the TV before being able to watch the show.
Cons: The aisles are not wide enough and people continue to hit me with their luggage and hand bags. Always the people waiting block the entrance of the gate when it is time to board.

Pros: It was short
Cons: Completely full plane. Ridiculously tight seat pitch. Overhead bins full. 45-minute delay for a dead-heading flight crew. Long wait for checked baggage. No beverage service because of turbulence. Flight crew out of position is a management problem, don't make it an inconvenience for a 737 full of paying passengers!

Pros: Flights to Reno tend to be empty if you fly in the right time of the week. I booked the cheapest ticket and ended up getting an exit row all to myself.
Cons: There is no seatback TV which is a major drawback. They do have a service that you can stream through your personal device but my power outlet didn’t work so my laptop died mid movie.

Cons: I get the pleasure of paying to check a bag! On top of it they lost my bag for two hours. What am I paying for again? At least it wasn’t gone for good...

Pros: Crew was nice.
Cons: Ran out of sandwiches on PDX to CLT leg. ☹️

Pros: The individual screen options and wide variety to keep you entertained for the flight. Very clean. Staff very helpful kind and accommodating! Look forward to flying again with them.
Cons: Bathrooms smelled of urine by the end. Not really their fault that the passengers were filthy.

Pros: We boarded quickly, the crew were friendly, the movies were great, we were on time leaving and arriving.
Cons: The only complaint, it was hot on the aircraft when boarding.

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.

Pros: Excellent service by the airline stewardess
Cons: Wait time to board

Pros: Got to pick my seat. Got food. Spacious. Timely. Friendly. And best of all.. the middle seat was open and I got some extra leg room!
Cons: Hey for airplane food I can't complain. Especially since I didn't even know I'd be getting any. (For free!). The chicken and mashed potatoes were a little funky but still ate and enjoyed it.

Pros: NA
Cons: No individual TVs, electric plug nor WiFi

Pros: Nothing.
Cons: More than 3 hours late and missed a press conference with a US Senator

Cons: If media is not working, at least offer complimentary wifi. You'd expect that type of service at a restaurant or...literally anywhere you put your money.

Pros: There was nothing that I liked.
Cons: One half hour before boarding we learned there was a delay. Obviously, American Airlines knew way before this time of the delay. At 6:00 p.m we were told they were bringing another plane from the hanger. The plane showed up around 9:00 p.m ... must be a long trip from the hanger. Then we were told they are waiting on a rear flight crew from another flight. After getting the rear flight crew, we were told that the front flight crew "timed out" and they had to look for other pilots. Needles to say after arriving at West Palm Beach at 1:00 in the morning...about four hours late the passengers were all devastated. American could have orchestrated this so much better

Pros: Boarding was very quick, they called the groups quickly with no lag time in between.
Cons: I think this was the most cramped airplane I have been on. It was so uncomfortable and I would think that they would take this into consideration since it was a red eye flight.

Cons: Completely ignored for beverage service

Cons: Flight left 4 hours late

Pros: Everything about the flight itself was excellent
Cons: Could mother on an online boarding pass from BA (ticked on) or AA ( flight operator)

Pros: It was not a full flight, so I was given an aisle instead of a middle seat...for which I was grateful.
Cons: Flight was 6 hours...almost as much as my previous international flight, yet food and drink was only available for purchase. No entertainment options. Plus, wireless was $21! I needed to work and had to purchase, but that is really quite a rip off compared to other airlines.

Pros: Flight staff was friendly.
Cons: Flight got delayed. I was a little worried I wouldn't make it to the connecting flight.

Pros: The flight attendants were very accommodating. One of the flight attendants encouraged me to take advantage of a seat that had more space so that I was more comfortable. Also when I casually talked about how I didn't get to eat before the flight she gave me two of the cinnamon crackers that are offered during the flight. This was very thoughtful and considerate of her. It was the little things and the attendants attention to detail that provided me an excellent experience.

Pros: I thought the crew was friendly and the food was pretty good.
Cons: The plane did not have personal TVs, which means they showed a handful of bad movies overhead and on a nine hour flight, it's hard not to be able to pick a movie or pick a TV show.

Pros: Very nice crew. Full meal

Cons: Turbulence was horrible That there is no internet

Pros: The crew was very helpful and kind.
Cons: Our flight was delayed over an hour and we had a connecting flight to Vegas that we were worried we were going to miss.
