Pros: "The crew was super friendly."
Cons: "Entertaining in English"

One of my pieces was a pair of light skis (5kg, well below the allowed 20kg) that were apparently too long for normal baggage. It is just another way to extract an extra fee. Seat spacing on Jet Star is dismal. Thankfully it was a short flight"

She was very professional , serving customer with the best she can. Always smiles. I feel good whenever I see her walks by, smile and very professional When the meal was serve but they only had one dish to choose instead of two ( I guess that day Chicken Masala dish was high on demand so there are only Japanese dish left) she said we are so sorry with a very sincere gesture , I chose Japanese food because I like Japanese food anyway , she politely thanks me for my choice and later bring a bag of small mix snack for me and said thank you for being flexible . Later on, when we getting off the airplane she even helped me to stroll my carry on out to the airplane because I was carry too many stuffs with me and my daughter being so tired of the long flight so I have to comforted my daughter .

We wouldn't have to drag two large suitcases and a rollaboard after checking out of customs and immigration very far. Same airport to land and depart. Well the arrival airport was changed to Narita $32.00 per person for Airport Limobus to Haneda. We get off at Haneda and are informed we cannot stay there and wait at the domestic airport for our 6:25 am flight to Naha. We had to load all 6 pieces of luggage on the shuttle bus and transfer to the international terminal because they close the domestic terminal at midnight. There was no hotel accommodations at the domestic airport as the hotel was booked two months in advance!!! We had to wait at the international airport terminal till 4:30 am when we then transferred back to the domestic terminal with our 6 pieces of luggage. Tell me how happy you'd be!!!"

Pros: "Japan Airlines is a good airline. They treated my family and I well during our flight home. The food was excellent and healthy.

Nothing can the counter do till i've to call kayak/flight network. One hour conversation from malaysia to canada. What a wast & replace me with air china. Stupid kayak & flight network."
Pros: "Absolutely loved the flight. The flight staff was among the best I have flown with. In terms of service I could not have asked for any better. The seats were super comfortable with a great entertainment system/large screen. The layout essentially gave you a nearly private suite. The doos service was impeccable. The lavatories spotless, along with those cool Japanese bidets...first one I've seen on a plane. Overall, I loved the experience."

Pros: "The crew was great although I needed to ask them for my meal cause they passed by me. They thought I had my meal already which I didn’t.

Pros: "Excellent seat and pillow cushion... The krisworld in-flight entertainment was extremely easy to use while still having a wide selection of films. The touchscreen was also very simple and did t require a great deal of force to press a button...the steamed towel given before take off was extremely relaxing and set a high standard of expectations during this flight. Almost all of the those expectations were met. The toilets were extremely clean and the service of toothbrushes was the icing on the cake. For my meal I ordered Indian fish curry which could have been a little more spicy (I am Indian so I eat foods with many spices)."
Cons: "I would have liked a wider selection of foods in the menu.. Limited options. Also, I had a 11:45 AM flight from BOM-SIN which was supposed to start boarding at 10:45, but instead we started boarding at 11:30 and took off at 12:10."
Pros: "Safety, Friendlyness, Seats, Entertainment"
Pros: "They whole process was just too tiring, especially when passengers were expected to lug around all their packed bags, instead of the airline catering to hold the luggage in the airport holding area"
Pros: "Very nice crew."
Cons: "Why are the slippers/socks not distributed before take off or already in the seat pocket? Why is the food order taken after take of and not before? Why does singapore airline have old seats I new planes? What happened to the earlier leader? Friendly staff alone does not make the deal.

Pros: "Singapore is #1 in my books. So glad I could get on their airline. The flight was super. The economy cabin was really nice and comfortable. I especially liked all the adapter plug outlets to power my equipment. I just can’t say enough good things about the cabin crew. The Stewardess were very attractive in their uniforms and make-up, not like the old maids United and American has. The cabin crew were extremely helpful and nice. The service was impeccable. The meals were actually pretty good. Course all the alcoholic drinks available was nice. A person could get wiped out pretty easy if not drink responsibly. But not a good idea to drink much cause of the aftereffects after the flight."
Cons: "The headset ear plugs left a lot to be desired. I need to bring my own good set to enjoy the vast selection of music and shows available. My number 1 complaint was the outside row seat armrests would not move up. This makes getting out of the seat into the isle much more difficult than it has to be. Why does it have to be stationary?"

Pros: "The crew was friendly and courteous."

Pros: "Just average flight, nothing so special"
Cons: "the flight was so overbooked that I had to stand in the queue for an hour for check-in, All the overhead compartments were full and I could not put a small bag in it, the crew even did not bother to help me with it. Ultimately I had to stow it beneath the seat. The seats were so cramped"
Pros: "For the price, its good, Entertainment system is really good, also its` good for the quick flight.Flight is always On time!"
Cons: "Staff is not super welcoming, looks like they are forced to serve the economy class, you get what you pay for, Also its super crowded."
Pros: "The food was nice. Vegetarian and non veg options were good for all the passengers."
Cons: "Boarding process was one of the most unorganised and pitiful for passengers I have ever seen!! Baggage check in process was a mess and the crew could not handle it. There were multiple lines at baggage check in for some reason for economy itself. We were guided by crew to one of the lines. Then after half hour, they put our line behind another line that arrived after us! Mismanagement led is to wait for nearly 2 hours at baghage check in. Also, the person at kiosk failed to check me in for connecting flight from Abu Dhabi(I was marked for airport checkin, so web check in was not an option). So when I reached Abu Dhabi, I was told my name was not even on the list!! Moreover I had only half hour layover at Abu Dhabi due to delayed flight from Mumbai . One of the worst experiences ever as it was also our honeymoon!"
Pros: "Cleaniness , food , entertainment"
Cons: "Air hostesses, my daughter asked 3 times for something . They kept saying will give and eventually no manners to come and reply also .. Asked for an extra bun for my 3 year old I was said will come back after the round but again no one came .. Never experienced this with any other flight .. Boarding also with kids was a little difficult when going by bus to the aircraft .. No priorities .. Only pushing .."
Pros: "Didnt make it. Neither did they give me an alternative to the flight."
Pros: "The A380 aircraft is an absolute delight to travel in. Makes the flight very comfortable."
Cons: "The crew was quite unfriendly and refused to provide any additional snacks or drinks after 1st service. Very limited food menu and very little in quantity."
Pros: "Good entertainment options although the screen/controller seem outdated and unresponsive. I would suggest not shutting off the entertainment while on the ground or too early (shut off an hour before landing)"
Cons: "My biggest complaint would be that we waited on the plane for over an hour and a half in Mumbai for late passengers. This caused a ripple effect which made us miss our arrival spot and have to wait an additional 30 min on the plane once we landed. You should never make 400+ people sit on an airplane for 2 additional hours (for a 3 hour flight) because a few passengers did not plan well and were late. That logic was insane to me and incredibly frustrating. That is my only complaint that would actually make me think twice about flying Etihad again. The crew seemed annoyed anytime I'd ask for water. A more western food option would be nice rather than just 3 options of rice and curries. Also the food timing did not line up well (eating fish at 9am)."
Cons: "Touch genital no good food rude air hostess and staff"
Pros: "The service was spectacular to begin with. It was consistent, frequent and ultimately satisfying. It was a very comfortable ride with enough space for a broad guy like me.

Pros: "Food and upkeep of aircraft"
Cons: "Your association with Aer Lingus"
Pros: "Courtesy of crew, food and cleanliness"
Cons: "Good in all respect"
Pros: "Aircraft fleet and airport is good. Good infrastructure."
Cons: "The cabin crew is not at all courteous. When you start travelling in US, you realize how different the crew's attitude is. When you want to say no to the customer, atleast make an effort to accommodate the needs of the customer first. Minor requests made by the passengers should be accommodated. You just rudely say No. Learn something from American customer service!!"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The food was great, seating was comfortable. Crew members were very helpful."
Pros: "Seats, pillow"
Cons: "Food was ok"
Pros: "Seats were comfy, crew was helpful, in flight entertainment was very good. Overall quite good.. Would definitely fly Etihad again."

Pros: "Chauffeur driven service"
Pros: "That I got home"

Pros: "The crew was behaving nice."
Cons: "The website is horrible and full of bugs. In Flight tracker, the same flight returned two results, one in cancelled status and another in delayed status. I called british airways to update my personal details as their website didn't allow me to enter details, the staff messed up the details."
Cons: "The crew/attendants were very efficient and listens to the passengers. They went the extra mile to accommodate."
Cons: "Zero snacks, not even for purchase. London to Texas is a really long way to not be able to purchase snacks other than the meals they provide."
Cons: "Arrangenents for wheel chairs at London were poor compared to Chicago which was excellent ."
Pros: "Crew and flight were fine"
Cons: "Due to the way Kayak / kiwi.com booked my flights, even though both legs were on the same airline they were booked as two separate flights causing me to wait in line for two hours to get my bag and check back in in Heathrow airport."
Pros: "What can I say about this awesome flight with great crew and a free upgrade? Fan-dabby-dozy-tastic!"
Pros: "The crew was super nice."
Cons: "There was some problem getting the bags on which meant we didn't leave the gate until almost an hour late. Then because of the delay we sat on the runway for over half an hour more. Meaning we missed our flight to Austin. Two flights over an hour late in one day. Oh, and we are missing one of our bags."

Cons: "Dislike posting of gate assignments in Edinburgh and London so late. Means I have to hightail it across the terminals, every time. Dislike the gate change posting late. Had to hear about it from a passenger, no announcement was made. My chicken and potatoes lunch had potatoes as the side dish. Looked like the caterer had leftover potatoes to use! No real vegetables. 2 bites of spinach. Red wine was offered they had no white wine. No choice of sodas..."
Pros: "Food was good, constant attention to hydration from cabin crew. A nice touch with the ice cream."
Cons: "Seat size"
Cons: "The flight to Heathrow was delayed by 2.30 hours while other flights to London was on time"
Pros: "Flight left on time. Crew were helpful and friendly. Asian vegetarian meal was good. I had tomato rice, broccoli and eggplant as side dish. Toilets were clean."
Cons: "Breakfast was not great. I had asian vegetarian meal. I had uppuma, mini dosa and sambar and they were tasty. But I also had bread, sweet bread and a piece of sweet cake. Three kinds of bread is not necessary. Too much carbo. Please provide, vegetables like cucumber, tomato and carrot with breakfast. Also chick peas without spices and rava kesari can be served with breakfast."
Cons: "Seats are not comfortable. The crew are OK. No fruit juice or cool drinks."
Cons: "Rude staff, incompetent customer care"
Pros: "Nothing it was a nightmare"
Cons: "The rude security staff, my previous British air flight from Dublin was 30’minutes late. Heathrow is terrible for connecting flights even with 2 hour leg room. What a joke. English people suck."
Pros: "The movie and television options were fairly good."
Cons: "I usually enjoy the BA flight from London to Austin, but this flight was extremely uncomfortable. The seats were cramped, and when the woman in front of me leaned her seat back, I didn't have enough space on my tray table to even keep a laptop fully open. The food (chicken casserole) was also terrible, and the airline ran out of other lunch options by the time they got to the back row where I was seated."
Pros: "updated plane, clean and nice"
Pros: "excellent service. Food was good. Flight was packed the the gills."
Pros: "Everything; crew was accommodating and friendly; food was good; crew offered liquid refreshments throughout the flight; crew demonstrated concern for our comfort."
Cons: "Nothing; everything was excellent"
Pros: "2 meals and beverages incl wine with great service. Great legroom on the 787."
Pros: "the staff tried to reason with the scary passenger"
Cons: "There was a scary passenger that caused me to have a panic attack because he kept yelling at the flight crew throughout the flight."
Pros: "Nice clean new plane. Courteous cabin personnel"
Cons: "Gluten Free meals that I ordered were not available, which is a major problem! Boarding took extra long as Crew wasn't ready yet, flight was an hour late in arriving, making it an exhausting 11.5 hr ordeal. Main issue: raging male passenger who screamed at Crew and other passengers for several hours and in effect held us in fear as very young and entirely female crew had trouble diffusing his anger. Seriously thought we were going to have to make a stop to get this guy removed from the plane. What was he so aggressive about? Not having a cradle for his baby. There were many other passengers w infants and he accosted the crew and the couple that did have the bassinet aggressively over and over again. Horrible."
Pros: "Good hospitality"
Cons: "As to drinks like juices etc there is no suffecient supply"
Cons: "I missed my flight from Barcelona and when talking with BA customer support they were extremely unhelpful in helping me find a return flight to get home to America. In the end I was offered almost no help and had to buy a brand new flight via American. I loved my flight TO London on BA, it was fantastic but the return experience was a nightmare. Can I look into a partial refund on my ticket since I never caught the return flight?"
Pros: "The crew was the very best."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The Boeing 787 and the Entertainment system."
Cons: "Toilets ran out of paper towels and kleenex Bags took too long to be delivered."
Pros: "I enjoyed everything about my experience from booking through the airport, flight and customer service. Great job!"
Pros: "They try there best"
Cons: "The union bull......"
Pros: "We were lucky we boarded early because i had reserved the seats in Premium economy and had a baby with us. That's the only good part about the journey"
Cons: "Horrible food No USB or charging ports in aircraft. The plane felt like decade old. Crappy seats with shitty monitors, reclining mechanisms Crew kept disturbing us for food when we were sleeping and kept serving us the meal we didn't order. When u hit the call button no answer! Ba missed our bags stroller and car seat. Thanks but no thanks BA. No one at athe counter to answer"
Pros: "1. MAA - Boarding - grouping should have been more professional"
Cons: "1. I had filled up API information & am an Executive club member. My India contact number is available on record. In spite of that I did not get SMS about flight ETD details or alert. 2. First meal was served about 1 hour after departure, which is Ok. The second meal was served after 8 hours, towards end of flight. 3. BA 36 takes off at ETD 05.30 & travels east. It is always day time as it flies."
Cons: "Nothing specific"
Pros: "The experience in baggage counter was pathetic.They charged me more than $200 for my third baggage."
Cons: "The staff at Chennai Airport was unfriendly"
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."
Cons: "Bags took forever to arrive. After a long flight and jet lag the last thing you need is to stand around waiting for your bags. This seems to be a problem with this particular airport (ABIA)"
Pros: "Just great service, always! Could use a bit more leg room as always but otherwise I've never had any issues with BA!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and professional."
Pros: "I liked everything about the flight, very comfortable seats (Club World), great staff who were very thoughtful and helpful with our situation (disabled person). The check-in personnel at Chennai were very considerate and helpful, much appreciated. The wheelchair arrangements at Chennai were excellent. The food on the flight was very good and accommodated our dietary restrictions. Entertainment choices (movies) were quite good, too, and managed to get some pretty good sleep as well. The lavatories had green/red light system for availability, visible from our seats, which was very helpful. The lavs were quite well maintained and clean. The flight was on time. and it arrived safely, which is the main thing."
Cons: "The transition from the flight to the terminal at LHR was not optimal, though the staff were trying their best. The "jetty" ramp way for normal deplaning was broken, they said, so they brought a set of steep aluminum steps instead. Navigating these steep steps was not possible for some passengers (difficulty walking and with steps), so finally they called a mechanical lift device (like a fork lift) to help those passengers, many in wheelchairs, who couldn't manage the steps. We had to wait for at least 30-40 minutes on the plane for the lift to arrive and stand outside on its platform up in the air, waiting to be ready to descend to ground level. This was pretty uncomfortable and it made our connection time very short. To compound matters, once on the ground, there was a wheelchair available for only one of us, though 2 had been requested, but as on other flights through LHR, there was unfortunately not enough staff to push it through Term. 5 to the connecting flight. So, I had to do that myself, along with managing my own luggage, which was a bit challenging, as I was tired by then. Our flight connection time, already much shortened by the deplaning situation, was evaporating steadily. Fortunately, there was an excellent staff member from Heathrow, who had been assigned to push someone else's wheelchair, who guided our group of wheelchairs, complete with hand luggage and children, though the maze of Term. 5, through very busy security and finally to our gate. We would have gotten lost and even if not, would almost surely have missed the flight without this guide facilitating this trek. We made the connecting flight with barely 5 minutes to spare."
Pros: "BA always has the most pleasant and accommodating flight crew. They go out of their way to make me feel special on any flights I've taken with them. Other airlines should take note. Thanks for a great flight."
Pros: "Prompt service"
Cons: "Tea was excellent on Chennai London flight but not that good between London and Chicago"
Pros: "The premium economy seating is worth the extra money. The seats were incredibly comfortable."
Cons: "The food was not very good, but it rarely is on long flights."
Cons: "Small selection of movies"
Pros: "I enjoyed how courteous the team was, there was great customer service provided. They were prompt and the flight was on time."
Cons: "I wish there was a way to make sleeping/resting more comfortable for coach and business class."
Pros: "Crew and airport stuff"
Pros: "Love the plane--quiet, roomy, and very smooth."
Cons: "The business class seats wasted so much space by not creating a compartment. I sat rear facing, next to the window, and had no place to really access compartments which could have been next to the seat--instead it just drops off. Moreover, in flight, if you were sleeping and someone wanted to get out of their area, they would literally have to step over your legs. Who in the world designed this? Please ride AA's herring bone business class makeup, and see what a real business class cabin looks like."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and easy as well as the crew was friendly and accommodating. Great end to a fun weekend away."
Cons: "After boarding the plane, it lost power. We sat at the gate with no air conditioning for almost an hour. While they tried to jump start the plane. After deboarding due to the heat (Dallas temps around 105 F), instead of telling us the next available plane to put us on was going to be 5 hours later, they delayed the flight 15-30 minutes at a time. This was a flight from Dallas to Austin and I could have rented a car and driven in a shorter amount of time."
Pros: "I liked the wide and spacious seating."
Cons: "Due to the planes running late we had to board the plane without the plane being cleaned beforehand. I had to ask a stewardess to wipe down the crumbs and spilt coffee on my seat before I could sit down. It was REALLY disgusting!!! There was crumbs all over the seats, Seatbelts and floor."
Cons: "Had a mechanical problem and took us 30 minutes to take off"
Cons: "Flight was delayed an hour. Poor communication with passengers during the process."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "entertainment monitor for my seat did not work at all. also on all flights: I was not aware one needed one's own headphones to hear entertainment."

Cons: "My flight was delayed an hour plus and I missed my rental car reservation. So now I'm stuck wih no car."
Cons: "Cramped seating"
Cons: "I bought travel insurance as I do with any trip. I have a complicated family emergency that forced me to call off the trip. Being that I bought trip insurance, I felt good. Well turns out they make you jump through so many hoops that your travel insurance fee is useless. I sent a letter to Allianz (the company that handles the travel insurance) and blasted them for their insensitivity in a difficult time. Going forward, I will not be purchasing travel insurance in the future. It may sound irrational but if you think about it, travel insurance is the tax on gullible people. You hear travel insurance and one assumes that if you spend the extra money on the insurance and something comes up, you can at least get much of your money back. Don't count on it! It's a 1/1000 chance they will do the right thing so the odds are not in people's favor. If you want to be smart, use the money you would have spent on travel insurance on some pre flight cocktails at the airport bar. Air travel is hellish enough without scams like Allianz!"
Cons: "Leg room/space BA offers is calculated for short and small body frame passengers and it is on not acceptable. It feels like cattle Wagon. BA should show consideration for real passengers not some sort of statistical average. I am 6'4" and sitting in your plane's cabin inflicts hours of body pain. The space given is sufficient for children and teenagers. Also sitting in the hot cabin for extended amount of time is extremely uncomfortable. Why there is no cooling and proper air ventilation right from the beginning?"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Pros: "the plane was very new and in excellent condition"
Pros: "Full can of tomato juice, head rests on the seat, relatively roomy seats and happy attendants."
Pros: "NOT much!"
Cons: "My window seat was right against the right engine. I could feel the vibrations and noise. It seemed like an old plane. I was definitely miserable on this flight. Very!"
Pros: "Experienced a 4.5 hr delay to the destination. Family had to pick up grandson (Ibooked trip for him) after midnight in L.A. 2 hour flight delay coming back which pick up had to be re-arranged again by family. Family member flew to us next day via United without any issues. Dont book through this site or use American Airlines!!!"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "The fact that we didn't know we were supposed to go to American Airlines to acquire our boarding pass. A heads up would've been appreciated."
Cons: "Delayed waiting to unload fuel, then delayed again after they broke the tow-bar and had to inspect the nose gear. Hot cabin while waiting."
Pros: "Everything was timely, courteous & pleasant. The aircraft was very clean."
Cons: "Was very stuffy and hot. Plane never cooled down."
Pros: "I got home safely"
Cons: "The airport was super crowded and the space in the plane was cramped (and I am a small person - 120 pounds). The plane was not clean and I actually picked up a virus on the plane and am still sick. I wiped down all of the surface area around my seat and still got sick. Airline travel is miserable and crowded and there is minimum service."
Cons: "He flight was extremely cold and they did not have any blankets. Very uncomfortable."
Pros: "There were no seats available together so we were upgraded to the extra room seats so that we could all sit together. As a mother flying by herself with 2 children, one of whom is on the Austin spectrum this gesture of being able to keep us together meant so much to all 3 of us. Thank you"
Pros: "I was traveling with two teenagers and originally there weren't 3 seats together. When we got to the gate they had reassigned our seats for us to sit all together. I appreciate that."
Cons: "We had already pulled out of the gate to leave when the captain informed us the plane had maintenance issues and we had to wait for a gate. We waited. When we got to the gate he announced the crew had timed out and that we should take our things and get down to wait for more information. Once at the gate we were told they were trying to put a new crew together for us, including the pilot. While we waited they did provide good quality deli food for us. I appreciate the food but the 5 hour delay, I did not appreciate."
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours"
Cons: "While trying to get help with my boarding pass, the woman behind the counter was so rude and nasty. Yelled at me for being at her desk when another American employee took me there."
Pros: "I liked the 2 x 2 seating arrangement. Leg room was adequate."
Pros: "I got these flights for dj jobs I had under a us p2 visa. My original flight to dallas was delayed from 12:56 to 8pm which would of landed me in dallas at 2:21am but the club Fat Rabbit closes at 2am Which in fact was a 1300 (US dollar) loss. I re booked my ticket to Austin from Vancouver this morning because the only reason to go dallas was my job. Was supposed to fly in have dinner play music get back on the plane n go Austin but going to dallas was irrelevant and a 7 hour delay was absolutely ridiculous."
Cons: "The fact I lost 1300.00 us has pissed me off I'm contacting AA about this I have my visa papers n contracts to show proof if not action is taken i will be contacting a lawyer"
Cons: "Delayed on the ground and didn't make up any time in the air. Arrived 45 minutes late."

Cons: "Worst airline I have ever used. Continuously bad experiences."
Pros: "Other than the delay, it was your basic 1 hour flight."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by an hour."
Pros: "once i was allowed to board the flight attendants were kind and apologetic"
Cons: "they overbooked the flight. when I asked for clarification about what I should expect, people at the gate were rude for without provocation. They told me I had no seat and were unapologetic about their mistake. when they, at the last minute, said there was room, they assigned me a seat that was already taken."
Pros: "Checkin was fast. Crew is always pleasant."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. I chose to upgrade my seat and was charged but i couldnt see any difference between my seat and anyone elses. I dont understand how it works. Then I was refunded the upgrade amount..."
Pros: "Crew was super nice"
Cons: "Flight was hour late leaving. Seats too close together. Guy next to me dipped himself in cologne before boarding."

Cons: "The seats, the lack of food options."
Cons: "No snack"
Pros: "Good customer service but to be expected"
Cons: "Horrible bin space Sitting arrangement southwest has better system including free baggage"
Pros: "Plane staff friendly, timely flight, uneventful overall."
Cons: "Gate-side crew forced us to check a carry-on bag when there was plenty of space in the plane bins. No in-flight entertainment, old plane."

Pros: "Everything very nice peaple"
Pros: "Left on time arrived on time."
Cons: "We went to the gate early and it was printed on our boarding passes. We left to get some food and came back and tried to board.

Cons: "N/A had to change my flight. :("
