Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "So many movies to spend flight time with great crew"
Cons: "There are couple things. First of all, it was cold almost for everyone: everyone used a blanket, and some people asked for a second blanket. Secondly, I think that if this airline became the best airline in 2017, staff should care about their passengers’ stuff more than they do, so backpacks or suitcases don't lose parts or get crushed during flights. When I got my backpack back, I thought that someone had used it to play football. My backpack had lost some parts, and some pieces of it were torn!"
Pros: "Service is courteous, both on the ground and air. Food & entertainment was top-notch as well. One of the economy rest-rooms were out of order and I was allowed to utilize the business class restroom by the flight attendant. Head bursar was very apologetic and sympathetic about the whole issue. Enjoyed my flight, again on Qatar!"
Cons: "Too crowded in in flight"
Pros: "crew was lovely and plane was very new"

Cons: "The flight was cancelled had to wait over a day for another flight, communication was poor,"

Cons: "For 14 hours flight, we were given 1 meal and 1 snack ; that seems too little for a long flight. They didn't have whiskey, only beer and wine...really... I asked the flight attendant to put my cabin luggage in the space above the seats, because I am old and could not do it myself, and he first frowned and asked why....ridiculous"

Cons: "Food was below average Could have been better for elderly people.. Boarding: No wheel chair assist. asked for 2 wheel chair assist - for myself and my spouse..but got for only one.had to wait till last min at boarding where tickets where issued as no one was available..hurried in last min to security gate."
Pros: "food and courtesy of the staff"
Pros: "Excellent service on all 6 legs of the itinerary. Great selection of food and wine and entertainment. Superb seating layout in business."
Cons: "Frankly nothing!"
Pros: "Boarding and Seat comfort was good"
Cons: "Food quantity in each service was not sufficient. Food quality ok. Cabin baggage limit of 15 lb/7kg per bag is awfully inadequate that renders the standard cabin baggage useless"

Pros: "Qatar Airlines - overall was excellent, having flown many times over the Atlantic and Pacific"

Cons: "1- Flight from Delhi to Doha was very late, which made it chaotic for us to catch our connection at Doha 2- Entertainment choices were very limited"
Pros: "Nice crew."

Cons: "Everything else. Boarding was chaos, Ground crew should show authority while boarding passengers."
Pros: "A350 is a very comfortable plane. More legroom than Emirates. Big difference for long flights."
Cons: "Service could be faster (food, etc). Entertainment system did not work on some of the seats."
Pros: "As expected of Delta. With Covid, even the food service understandably was limited. They had prepackaged goodies, albeit not much flexibility, but I had no complaints. Mid row was empty per Covid, for flight comfort, this was somewhat a plus. Knowing air was filtered with HEPA filters every 2 minutes with fresh oxygen and outside air mix was also reassuring."
Pros: "Wouldn’t know about the crew. Short flight and didn’t see them enough to comment"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The flight didn’t leave on time because the plane wasn’t ready for takeoff (the engines had to be warmed up... WHY would that not be ready when it was time?!) so we left 30 minutes late, didn’t make up any lost time at all in the air and we ended up missing our connecting flight because of it all."
Pros: "Great entertainment."
Cons: "Turbulence was high so good/drink service was less than normal. No fault of delta or their crew but the JFK airport was awful, especially through customs. No help from the employees and easy to get lost."
Cons: "Not really an experienced flyer. Overall the flight seemed good. No issues with airline or airport. Just don’t understand self-important people that feel compelled to push the overhead storage limits with their bags."
Cons: "My hard shell suitcase was broken during the process not sure when or where. Items in my suitcase were also damaged. The seats are so close together that it was very hard. If you are a bigger person I recommend flying first class."
Pros: "Plane was clean & modern"
Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "They left without us. They could have waited a few minutes knowing we were on a delayed flight but didn't. They actually left early."
Pros: "The crew was one of the best I have ever experienced. They even had the flight deck wish a happy birthday to my 89 year old mother in law."
Pros: "Crew had pleasant personalities.. not stoic annoyed faces"
Cons: "People should wait their turn getting off the planes “Wait until the seat in front of you is empty,” says the elementary school teacher .."

Cons: "the number of kids......not too fond. :/"
Pros: "On time boarding. Good entertainment options, friendly staff"

Cons: "Never made it because of my originating flight"
Pros: "The flight was very good in both directions. I was quite comfortable. On my return flight I left my e-reader on the plane. I didn't realize it until 2 days later. I called Delta and spoke with Tiffany. She was so helpful. She located my e-reader and I was able to go to the airport and pick it up."
Cons: "Carry brewed decaf coffee."
Pros: "I liked the cookies and juice. The interactive screen to watch something. The cleanliness. The price. On time. The service. Thank you. The excitement of flying."
Pros: "Everything was great everyone was fantastic. F"
Pros: "left on time and arrived on time"

Pros: "The flight attendants were all helpful and pleasant. The seats were comfortable. We were provided with plenty of liquids."
Cons: "The landing was pretty tough and we took off almost a half hour late."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Delayed and then arrived at airport and sat on tarmac for too long waiting for clearance to go to gate"
Cons: "Aiirlines always want to try and chargel extra money for everything. If you purchase tickets back in February and still can't sit with your significant other that's a problem to me."
Cons: "Toilets space are below standards"
Cons: "Baggage was delayed overnight. With modern tracking, should have been notified that the luggage was not loaded on the same flight as me, eliminating my wasting 45 minutes at ATL realizing that my baggage was not coming and then having to queue to notify the airline that it had not come."
Pros: "They tried."
Pros: "I like everything!! From now on I'm going to travel with Aeromexico Very comfortable great service friendly."
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "I liked that the plane wasn’t full which was a surprise."
Cons: "Last leg of the flight as usual we had some plane on it’s last legs with entertainment equipment from the 90’s and that’s being generous. My iPhone 7Plus is only a little smaller than the screen they would have you watch for five hours. Also the plane was old and noisy and seats were not really comfortable. But this is par for the course flying to Hawaii for some reason, no matter the carrier. Hawaiian Airlines is usually better but that’s to be expected."
Pros: "Zones are more delineated."
Cons: "People were obviously cutting in line and edging up before their zones were called."
Pros: "The staff really helped me out getting on standby so that I didn't have to wait for a 9 hour layover. Overall great experience and great staff."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants on this flight."
Pros: "First class service and seats"
Cons: "Lost my bag... very frustrated. Nobody at the baggage claim would give us an answer, they said there might be more bags coming... Then they ran away. We finally wind up at the last bag office and they began the process... We still are waiting for our bag, 14 hours after reporting it missing."
Pros: "Plane was clean, easy boarding, crew was kind and attentive."
Cons: "30 minutes late no explanations...."
Pros: "Loading process, seats and drinks were great"
Cons: "No TV on back of the seat but thankfully the ladies next to me were very entertained"
Cons: "To be clear, I do not have an issue with overweight people. That being said, I was put in an extremely uncomforatable position on this flight. My seatmate was a woman who easily weighed 400 pounds without the slightest exageration and was 5'7 at best. She carried all of her weight in her midsection and behind, which was truly uncomforatable for us both. As she attempted to squeeze into the aisle seat it became apparent that with the armrest down it was not going to happen. She raised the armrest and finally maneuvered into her seat and part of mine also. Not only was her bottom in my seat but her stomach was resting on my entire right leg. It felt like a toddler was sitting on my lap. This was beyond uncomfortable and embarrassing for us both as it was clear that she knew how intrusive this was and kept apologizing. My leg went to sleep after about 15 minutes so I asked to be let out. I approached the flight attendent and requested that my seat be changed to which she responded that the flight was full. I know it wasn't because I could see an empty seat about four rows in front of me. Finally I sat back down but every 15 minutes or so she would get uncomforatable and get up to stretch. The first time it was a welcomed break, until she came back and flopped in her seat with so much force that it felt like someone had ran and jumped in my lap. This occurred 4 or 5 times during the flight. I am not sure what the policy is for obese passengers, but it should be relooked. As a passenger I should not be put in a position to address another passengers weight. I also should not have to pay for a seat and only get to use 2/3 of it. Lastly, no one should ever be allowed to put their body parts on top of another persons lap and that be considered ok."
Pros: "I was bowled over to learn in flight that the lowly steerage (economy) passengers--and everyone else had a selection of 3 complimentary meals! Who does that any more! Unfortunately, the only vegan option ran out just before my seat, but I was still amazed and pleased....and have ordered a vegan meal in advance for my next flight. Incredible! Plus, plenty of room for bags, good video selections, and power at all seats. I love Delta and will fly them more often!"
Cons: "Plane kinda of old. Just cookies and coffee"
Pros: "Plane arrived early"
Cons: "They board the front of the plane first, meaning the aisles get clogged up slowing down the process. Also, staff kept insisting pre boarding that more people needed to check their bags because there wasn't enough overhead bin space, but there were plenty of bins not full by take off."
Pros: "The trip was short."
Cons: "I didn't care for my engine only window view. Nor did i like that the crew barely served refreshments (other airlines have zero issues with this on a DTW-MDW or ORD with a larger plane and equal amount of flight stewards). The route was also akin to being on a rough patch of sea for an hour."
Cons: "Aircrafts were not maintained well and they had to return causing a 4+ hr delay"
Pros: "The staff was was very accommodating to myself and my 19 month old daughter"
Cons: "Seating was tight"

Pros: "Was on time, in fact early. Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "The CRJ is just very small. No room in the overheads, no room below. Seat didn't recline, all average carryons have to be gate checked, the usual. Well it still beats driving!"
Pros: "I was cleared for standby! Flight attendant at the stl gate is always friendly and willing to help! I love her!"
Cons: "I waited almost 6 hours on the phone the night before the flight to get on standby! Almost didn't get the flight! Was charged $50 only to not get on my next flight because it was over booked! Flight attendant was very rude!"
Cons: "I accidentally had my name entered wrong on my ticket and no one was able to help me change it. Thus I missed my flight and couldn't Even get a partial refund. Ridiculous. I now had to pay 2300$ for the same flight the next day."
Pros: "After canceled, Delta had a hotel and found new flight for next day. Shuttle to and from hotel provided."
Cons: "Ten gate changes. Rescheduled for 15 to 45 minutes each time for 6 hours, this lead passengers to believe flight would still happen. Which a backup flight was not booked. Frustration!"
Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "Plane was late for takeoff and we arrived 30 minutes after scheduled time. They didn’t announce a delay or apologize."
Pros: "The crew was great, the pilot was talented and the on boarding process was quick and smooth."
Pros: "Friendly crew, smooth flight and comfortable seats."
Pros: "The crew was great and provided a quiet environment for the red eye flight."
Cons: "The boarding process needs to be reevaluated. Perhaps the plane should be boarded from the rear to the front or from window to aisle seat. These suggestions would streamline the boarding process."
Pros: "It was a red-eye flight and the crew kept the lighting low and the cabin quiet."
Cons: "More snack variety than pretzel nibbles."
Cons: "As always, the crew was friendly, professional and accommodating."
Cons: "Be on time. Also we sat in first class and it would be nice if the center counsel was smaller giving the passengers more seat room."
Pros: "Great crew again, basic aircraft but comfortable economy seats."
Pros: "Speedy, professional, clean, overall wonderful trip! Hoping for same upon return!"
Cons: "After take off I could no longer hear anything through the headphone jacks. Staff was VERY rude & unpleasant the whole trip. Feed half of my family, and left the other half of us to sit there until there was only one choice left, Then completely forgot to serve me anything."
Cons: "Had to Deplane 3 hour delay. No compensation no offerings no nothing."
Cons: "Flight across the US had poor quality meal service, no charging port and no entertainment. Despite paying for an exit seat with more leg room the seat was very narrow and uncomfortable for the long flight."
Pros: "SJU counter crew, in flight crew and flight was SUPER on time!!!"
Cons: "Nothing wrong."
Pros: "Our flight crew was very nice."
Cons: "it was a short flight, no food or drinks."
Cons: "Tight connection! The airlines need to Realize that a 2 hour layover is NOT enough when you have to go through immigration, customs, and security before making your next flight!"
Pros: "Crew was nice and gave my son Captain Wings"
Cons: "Left 50 minutes late, only provided sugar cookies as food"
Pros: "Courteous professional staff!"
Cons: "I couldn't imagine a smaller space for traveling - rediculously small!"
Pros: "The crew in the plane was so happy and funny ! Nice group ! The food was fine, always can be better that’s the true hahahah"
Cons: "The crew from AA in LAX it’s old and they don’t know nothing, our check in take 45 min, because we want to pay a extra bag. Thanks his we went with a lot time extra. American Airlines you need to make a big effort for be better."
Pros: "The process of boarding, baggage check, etc"

Pros: "Considerate flight attendants. Turned lights down for evening flight, so we could get some rest."
Cons: "Flight was not on time. Time was changed a day prior with no reason explained. No in flight entertainment on this flight."
Pros: "Appreciated how the pilot managed to get us to our destination about an hour faster than scheduled. This time the free gogoflight entertainment worked. Was able to watch a couple of movies without any technical problems."
Cons: "Because the flight arrived so early, there were no gates available to dock. As a result, we were in taxi-mode for almost 30 minutes. This pilot tried to do is a favor but ended up frustrating all of us. They didn’t have enough food on the flight."
Pros: "Smooth direct flight to BCN, good captain & flight crew. Comfortable seats complete with usb charger port; excellent entertainment choices on personal screen. Tasty dinner & snacks."

Cons: "Seats have little leg room. Like most....thry pack them in!"
Cons: "It took a while day to get our bags after they decided to put it on the next flight"
Pros: "The flight staff"
Cons: "The worst flight I have taken in years. The flight was delayed several hours. It was extremely hot on the plane and not enough air. Food had a bug in it when I opened the package. My bag was lost."
Pros: "Online check in scanning my phone and having my seat already picked out. Informative while on the flight and great spacing. Also like to know that there still is free carry ons allowed."
Pros: "Really? I just gave 1 star. Your feedback form should be smart enough to realize that."
Cons: "It's not finnair. It's American Airlines. The sears were so cramped that I have a horrible backache. Stop calling it finnair. Several airlines booked tickets on this flight. There's nothing good to say."
Pros: "Everything went more smoothly this time than on our way to Phoenix. Even though the airport was quite crowded they had enough staff to get us through baggage check fairly quickly. They flight was smooth."
Cons: "No problems on this leg of the trip."
Pros: "Boarding was impossible! The line was longer than the jet bridge itself and we had to wait after being called for a 1/2 hour."
Cons: "The crew really seemed like they didn't like their job, and didn't want to be there. I felt kind of bad for them, nobody should be stuck in a job they hate."
Pros: "From boarding to landing evething was perfect. Flight was not overcrowded, so I could lay and sleep comfortable in economy. Crew ok"
Pros: "Nothing. The entire experience with AA was horrible. Flights delayed, poor protocols to accommodate passengers in other flights.AA does not take responsibility of reimburse or compensate the passenger for cancellation of flights for technical problems of their aircraft even thought the flight is operate by AA. Zero help and communication with airlines (AA and LATAM) involved with the delays, lost connections or frights cancellations. I should be reimburse or compensate for all the inconvenience generated."
Pros: "The staff were amazing. Very accommodating and with great dispositions. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "For an international flight the seats were extremely tiny and the plane itself only had a few tv screens posted in the middle of the plane so everyone had to watch the same thing."
Pros: "Friendly, efficient staff. Quick boarding process"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by a few minutes"
Pros: "Assigned seats"
Cons: "Flight was delayed for over 6 hours. Had to find an alternative way to get home"

Cons: "Reading knight on plane were so dim they were useless"
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac to move to the gate for 30 minutes. NEVER AGAIN, I AM THROUGH!!!!"
Pros: "Good flight."

Cons: "They would not move me from next to the smokey 50'year old next to me. that's fine. But they told me I couldn't tell her to bathe and quit smoking. O well. I'm not gonna hold it against them for stinky old lady"
Pros: "Nothing. I will never fly an American / American code share flight abroad again. I cannot believe they are flying this plane for trans-continental flight in 2016."
Cons: "1980's 757. Literally, I flew on planes like this in the 80's. American, please get with it. This was a horrendous flight. No in flight entertainment at all in 2016 on a 9+ hr. flight is unacceptable. Couple that with 1.25 hour delay AFTER the plane boarded. You should not be flying narrow body jets on flights this long. Much less ones with old, uncomfortable seats and zero entertainment options. I don't mean to sound entitled but this experience was night and day in every capacity (comfort, food, service, entertainment) from my flight to Europe on BA. Sad. Lastly, I sat next to a off duty American flight attendant who was quite rude."
Pros: "I landed"
Cons: "Flight was changed which left me with five minutes to get off one plane and onto another. I got to my first gate early and attempted to ask the person there about the timing. She walked away without looking at. On her way down the hall says it will be open in an hour. An hour later I go to the gate. A woman is there and finishing up with another customer. When it was my turn, she said she was closed, yet she helped the joy behind me for over an hour. I know this because I got In the generic questions line and stood there for an hour watching the woman who was "closed" help this guy. When I was FINALLY able to talk to someone, the only thing he told me was to walk fast. That was well worth the 2 hour wait. I will never fly with American again."
Cons: "Tight space"
Pros: "On time. No issues"
Cons: "Food could have been better"
Cons: "If the airlines was able to help finding my pierce that was missed at the security or the craft"
Cons: "Single worst airline ever"
Cons: "The Boarding was not fair. The most horrible experience in my life and the Customer Service made me felt like a delinquent."
Cons: "They need to learn from asian airlines (specifically Thai Airways)"
Cons: "Flight was very late departing"
Pros: "Really good flight attendant crew."
Cons: "The boarding process was unorganized and confusing. The set up at the gate was bad as well."
Pros: "Short flight, nothing to do with airline"
Cons: "Boarding was annoying and employees were rude. Had just gotten off of a connecting United flight and one of the employees barked at me that my carry on was too big and I had to close extra zipper even though I had no issues in the United flight I had just gotten off of......... I was starving and didn’t get a chance to grab food due to short layover time. We took a while to take off. We’re supposed to leave at 4:15 and left closer to 5pm. Then when we were on the air, flight attendants took a while to provide the snacks and water and they didn’t even get around to our row before they had to sit down for touch down. Smh. Terrible and thoughtless. Seats were uncomfortable and very little leg space. Entertainment only works if you’re able to download their app and of course no free WiFi because airlines want to force you to spend more money after you’ve spent a large amount to fly to your destination."
Pros: "They were very kind to my very tired toddler for a late night flight."
Pros: "Despite all the security checks, it was easy to board even in group 4. :)"
Cons: "Food was just mediocre. Would be nice to see a menu. They didn't offer slippers and the eye masks for the long flight. Comfort plus seats were spacious not really "comfortable:"
Cons: "The flight was about 9 hours delayed and I didn’t feel like anyone was trying to make up for it"
Cons: "My connecting flight was delayed by 4 hours due tknsmong in India. I called United ahead of time to tell them I was not able to make my flight and if there was anyway I could get a new ticket. The representative was confident that 40 minutes between my flights at Delhi was enough time to make it despite me reminding her about the time it took to get off the plane, pick up my luggage, get through immigrations and travel to my terminal. She was very wrong. She insisted I call them when I land and that I go to the ticket booth. Little did she know that once I miss my flight my ticket is no longer valid and I was no longer able to enter the airport in India. Once I reached the entrance I was directed to a Untied booth all the way at the end of the terminal and was told to buy a new ticket. There was no United representative at this booth. I waited 3 hours and even called the number posted at the booth. No one picked up and no one came. I had wasted several hours. I ultimately decided to buy a ticket online spending another thousand dollars to get back home when I was told that I would be given a new ticket at the booth by United. But I had to wait another 24 hours outside the airport because I was not allowed in so early prior to my flight. Very unprofessional and unhelpful when I needed it the most."

Cons: "I had no issues with my flights but my bag was damaged to the point I can no longer use it. They asked for volunteers to check their carry on due to a full flight (not my problem) so I did the nice thing and checked my small hard-case carry on never thinking it could get damaged that badly. It was only 2-3 years old and not only did the wheel come off but it cracked a portion of the hard case which came off as well. To make it worse when I called to ask what I should do to get compensation they told me the wrong thing and would only let me talk to people in call centers who wouldn't really answer my questions."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised when they announced those with large carry ons could get tagged and pick up at final destination."

We should have been given an option to fly this late or rebook for free. It was too late to travel at this point."
