Pros: "Good service from the crew and good food."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and there are a lot of redundant checks before entering to the gate. No internet service and the flight was very long. (14 hrs)"

Cons: "I bought my seat assignment in advance, and they did not give me this seat on the plane. Before boarding, I asked at the gate if my new seat was a window--which is what I paid for--and they confirmed yes, my new seat was a window. Turns out, it was not, it was a middle seat. I asked a flight attendant to relocate me to a window seat, which she kindly did, however this seat was quite uncomfortable as I was seated next to a large gentleman who probably should have been required to purchase two seats. Overall, there were two issues with Qatar Airways during this trip: they did not give me the seat I had requested and paid for, and then lied when I asked if my new seat was a window."

Pros: "Food was good and crew"
Cons: "Old aircraft from Doha to Dhaka."

Pros: "Boarding was efficient. Staff were polite and helpful."

Cons: "Plane a330-300 was little older and outdated in terms of entertainment system , but since this is short journey hence i dont mind"

Pros: "QR528 landed in Chennai at 01.50 hrs IST on time was out of plane in 10 mins and then the endless wait for my baggage after immigration check, being a Indian citizen no issues but was able to collect my baggage at 3.02 hrs Doha - Chn flying time 3.50hrs, baggage collection 50 mins, its bizzare & absurd"

Pros: "I had high hopes flying Qatar Airways for the first time but I suppose they are bound to have the same uncomfortable planes as everyone else now."
Cons: "I was annoyed that I could not put my carry on items in the bin above my seat. I was in front of the bulkhead so there was no other place to store my items except the overhead bin and the flight attendant took the space in my bin for some baby items she thought she might need for another passenger. I had to store my personal items away from my seat."

Pros: "just enough time in Doha between flights. Not too long not too short!"
Cons: "Asian vegetarian food can be of better quality."

Pros: "The airline in general was good, provided a kit with socks, ese plugs,toothbrush and other essentials,good movie choices, overall customer service. They had free wifi which was amazing!!"
Cons: "We took 2 long flights one from morrocco to Qatar and Qatar to dallas. The food on the flights was not the best, one the first one they ran out of chicken meal and only had fish left which was gross, for such a big airline you would also think they give a snack in between meals but they do not.also after giving you the food it took a long time for them to pick up the tray which I thought was unusual"

Pros: "I like the staff and the way they treat the passengers and foods too i like , was really good"
Cons: "I didn't like the comfortable part at the plane , it's not that good plane , the spoon ,& knife are not good , the chairs are not comfortable that much as the other planes of Qatar airways,"

Pros: "They had a surprise business class update waiting for me. Wonderful experience."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Am satisfied with the services but free wifi was not there ;-)"

Pros: "Good food, good service and clean planes."

Cons: "Aircraft changed without notice Trapped in cramped window seat No storage bins IFE strobing windows tabs and would not switch off Useless design of chair lead to loss and destruction of my Kindle"

Cons: "Terrible. Awful. Could not possibly recommend this airline to anyone."

Pros: "The staff were welcoming and friendly. Their customer care is second to none. The food is excellent and i ate throughout my flight."
Cons: "The comfort was a bit below my expectations. Sitting on the seats along the isle was uncomfortable as they are closely placed. There is no enough room to move and to lean sideways when one wants to sleep. My tv was not working. The touch screen was not responding. However the friendly flight attendants shifted me to a vacant seat where the tv was working. The movie selection was limited. There were no documentaries about wildlife. Sport was also missing. We also need some news channels like Aljazeera, CNN & BBC so that we keep updated on issues happening throughout the world. This is very important especially to people like me who traveled long distances from South Africa to Los Angeles USA."

Pros: "It just felt like you are constantly given food and drinks while having an endless amount of entertainment at your fingertips."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Qatar Airways is always impressing"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: "The flight was comfortable. The flight attendants were pleasant and attentive."
Cons: "After the flight landed we had to present our boarding passes one by one so they could be inspected again and our names were crossedoing off some list. It really slowed down meeting our ride and getting to customs. I think it also contributed o our flight being delayed since the flight before us had to do the same thing as they disembarked. I would be more concerned if my flight had a close connection if this is a standard practice. This was my first flight with Qatar. If the practice is standard I won't keep flying them."

Pros: "Crew was helpful and ver polite and efficient"
Cons: "At the boarding gate they were cherry picking whose bag is too large and whose isn't. My bag was tagged for nothing, no one at the aircraft was to load them to baggage hold. Plenty of space on the plane. What is the point of the fuss."

Cons: "offering water at regular intervals (or at least once or twice in the entire 8 to 9 hour flight would be good."

Pros: "Very good customer service on flight. Love the way they treat their customers."
Cons: "Was surprised by the $60 fee to check in a bag. I know i bought this through kayak, but it would have been nice to have told that up front, and even further, if they had let me check 1 bag for free like everyone else."

Pros: "Good timing, on time"
Cons: "RUD Stop very disruptive to sleep. Especially with little kids. Connection flight at FRA was very hectic. Asked numerous airport personnel for help and extremely rude, including yelling at us unprovoked. Business lounge had no kids area and very clinical. BA business more warm."

Pros: "Comfort crew"
Cons: "The flight was delayedgoo"

Pros: "Spacious seat, easy charging."
Cons: "Boarding"

Pros: "Thé entertainment was amazing. I watched a live soccer game"
Cons: "The space in the plane"

Pros: "Horrible seating, boarding was a mess, not sure what flight to get on!!"
Cons: "Don't fly United"

Cons: "Impossible to do beter."

Cons: "-"

Cons: "Leg room"

Cons: "Food could have been better,there several seats empty ,but couldn't switch seat or food TV wasn't working at all"

Pros: "The crew was nice and the movie selection was decent. Food was ok. As good as it can be when you pay $2,500 for a flight ticket knowing that they are not really there to offer you a service, they are there to make their own money knowing that as a traveler you really have no options other than an airplane if you want to go across the ocean."
Cons: "The difference here is that in a 9 hour flight you want to keep hydrated. Crew seemed lazy...they would not bring water to travelers very often...and when I called a flight attendant with the button call and politely asked if I could have some water, she seemed pretty annoyed and told me I can just stand up and go take my water in the back where they store food. NOT A GOOD SERVICE FOR $2,500!!!! It’s outrageous!! Seats become smaller and smaller...and you keep asking about my experience...$2,500 to travel seating in a miniature seat with no leg room is a bit much...and I know no flight company cares about this...we have no choice...either take that or don’t travel, right?"

Pros: "Was nice and pleasurable"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The red wine was good and the crew made sure that we were well hydrated. The flight was very smooth."
Cons: "The quality of the meals was poor - tasteless food, possibly loaded with preservatives."

Cons: "I never fly United because the spirits aren’t free so I chose Lufthansa. You can imagine my disappointment when it became a United flight and had to pay. Lufthansa you’ve lost a customer here."

Pros: "Very comfortable, amazing crew and service. Entertainment was very good with lots of options."

Pros: "The service. Smooth flight."

Pros: "See above. The same applies."
Cons: "See above. The same applies."

Pros: "Clean plane, efficient and professional crew"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Visa for India was not checked in Denver. Landed in Frankfurt and discovered that the visa was expired. Stuck in Frankfurt for 3 nights until new visa was issued. No babes the entire time I was in Germany. Arrived in Mumbai after paying the $350 US change fee and no bags. Bags finally arrived on Monday at 9AM Without clothes, toiletries and medications for 6 nights. Now I am delayed and will probably have to pay rebuke and fare change to extend my stay here."

Pros: "Seats on PE were comfortable, on time, clean flight."
Cons: "The worst crew possible, absolutely no concept of customer service, Last flight on lufthansa....so no more complaints Customers needs training on how to use the LOO."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and respectful"
Cons: "Another passenger came and sat in the seat that was empty next to me and wasn’t ever asked to return to her own, assigned seat"

Pros: "We left an hour late. Pilot made up most of the time in the air."
Cons: "United app didn't work. No entertainment. Seats so close, you couldn't read because distance too short. Could have heated the breakfast sandwich. Just threw it out cold and late."

Pros: "The Lufthansa crew in Nigeria airport are not friendly at all...expecially there crew supervisor."
Cons: "How the crew was attending to me."

Pros: "First leg got cancelled and missed all connections. So frustrating!"
Cons: "Gate agent in GRR rebooked a flight the next day, which is too late for my event in Florence. When I called Lufthansa to see if I could get on an earlier flight, they could no longer help me because the new reservation was with United."

Cons: "Overall okay. Boarding was substandard"

Pros: "Everyone at Lufthansa are very friendly so thank you everyone we love you"

Pros: "Good crew, okay seats, perfectly adequate food"
Cons: "Entertainment choices were not so hot. Lots of movies, but few new ones."

Cons: "No entertainment during the whole flight at all."

Pros: "The 747 is a big plane. Each seat had a full entertainment system in the back of the seat ahead. Seats actually reclined! Cannot recommend cabin crew highly enough. Efficient, polite, professional."
Cons: "I cannot understand why any airline continues to board forward to aft, forcing people with just a backpack to stack up behind others, allowed to bring obscenely over-sized carry-on bags, wrestling to get their sea chests into the overhead bins. Seat upholstery could have been better for such a long flight. I have "asnahtfuL" permanently embossed on my butt. 747 is an aging craft and this plane had disappointing response to turbulence."

Cons: "Headsets and entertainment screen was old and the selections were poor"

Pros: "flight was on time and the crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Plane was"

Pros: "Title says it all Short flight"

Cons: "Not so friendly crew"

Cons: "You canceled my flight it was no one to reach by kayak will never buy tickets again from kayak"

Pros: "The entertainment options were great, and the food was better than many airline meals I've had before."
Cons: "I am Star Alliance Gold and I didn't like that it wasn't possible to select an economy plus seat upon check in, and I wasn't upgraded even though there were seats available. I picked this airline specifically because of it's star alliance membership but it didn't get my anything."

Pros: "Drinks and food quality acceptable Well on time Very friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats comfort could have been better"

Cons: "N/A because we missed the flight."

Pros: "Again the friendly crew."
Cons: "The snack at dinner. A simple sandwich would be better instead of the heated pizza and large sandwich they did give."

Pros: "The flight was on time. Boarding was easy. There was plenty of room for hand luggage."
Cons: "Seats were not super comfortable."

Pros: "I always try to fly LH, but do so only if there is a deal available. This time I was especially impressed with the ground crew service in Frankfurt who offered assistance that I would have been too self-conscious to solicit, and it made all the difference."

Pros: "Boarding was late and disorganized. Would recommend boarding by rows from different areas of the plain. Flight landed on time. Entertainment offered a wide selection"
Cons: "My wife developed a stomach problem from the second meal."

Cons: "The seats are even smaller than the ones on small planes; Almost impossible to move even though i'm not a big person by any means;"

Pros: "Lufthansa is the airline for long-distance travel!"
Cons: "Everything was great. On our flight over the pond, and back, the food was great it was comfortable, and the airplane had the best in technology."

Cons: "My chair did not recline at all, which make long fly very uncomfortable. When I complained to fly attendant, she said that there is nothing she can do about it. The table in front of the chair was also very hard to open."

Pros: "the crew was good"
Cons: "the seating was cramped. could use more leg room. The food was average."

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "Entertainment options vastly expanded and improved Attentive staff Good check-in Decent boarding - some organisation of boarding by seat - prevents roadblocks by people trying to get to back while those in front are still putting their stuff away and blocking aisle."
Cons: "Given menus for a mediocre meal Booked window seat to sleep - given aisle at last minute when boarding Given drink then meal for overnight flight - meal would be nice - more time to sleep"

Pros: "They put us in a hotel."
Cons: "I lost my trip to Venice and almost didn't make my cruise ship. Lost $300 non refundable room deposit. Nothing more than an "I'm sorry." from Lufthansa. I'll never fly them again."

Pros: "Flight took off on time. Boarding was organized."
Cons: "Cabin was cramped. Food quality was so so."

Pros: "Delicious inflight meal and outstanding service!"
Cons: "Please keep up the same standards"

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Timeliness. Cleanliness. Service. Food and drinks."

Cons: "Great experience"

Cons: "First of all my booking didnt have a checked bag included !! Since when british air do not include checled bags in their tickets . Second its way too expensive to add the baglike 100$ for each flight !! 400$ for me and my wife !! Third when i checked in and wanted to chose my seat 50$ each !!!"

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: "Arriving before the schedule"

Cons: "there was a mechanical error which kept us on board the plane for 20 minute increments for nearly 3 hours until they had us switch planes"

Cons: "5 hours delay"

Pros: "Was a new aircraft, very clean. M&S food is good (though extra of course)"
Cons: "The new seats are now no different to a no-fills airline, seriously BA, no seat recline option?! 3 times price of Easyjet yet no difference in comfort. No Map display of progress. Shall we call you Beasy jet now then?"

Pros: "The plane was very clean and looked fairly new. The take off and landing were gentle & the cabin crew was very nice. The food was 5 star (for plane food) and service was excellent."
Cons: "The air temperature was hot upon boarding, after take off we asked about the temp and it had gotten turned up. They were quick to reset for a more comfortable ride."

Cons: "Entertainment system is very old and the flight is also very old."

Pros: "The Business Class accommodations and staff were excellent. The boarding process was on-time and painless and made a very long trip enjoyable. Despite my poor experience checking luggage, see the dislike comments, there were two employees who did go out of their way at the end of my poor check-in experience to help me. I did not get their names, but their good service was greatly appreciated. The plane crews were also awesome!"
Cons: "1.Outdated website information: I have a small travel guitar that fits in the overhead bins and I always take it with me when I travel, with no issues. It counts as my overhead carry-on. I checked the British Airways website prior to leaving the U.S. and it said small instruments were okay. I was able to board from San Jose, USA, with no issues. However, I was told at Heathrow that no stringed instruments were allowed at all, under no circumstances, ever, no matter the size, even Business Class, even First Class, even if other airports were not enforcing the rules. The rules that ARE NOT LISTED ON YOUR WEBSITE 2. Poor customer service: Due to the above, at Heathrow airport, I had mixed signals everywhere and had to check-in THREE times, twice to oversize, I was sent back and forth all over the place, finally having to go all the way through the airport to pay to have my item boxed. Most of the folks along the way were extremely unpleasant and rude and acted as if it was the craziest thing in the world that I would have a carry-on travel guitar. TRAVEL guitar, small, not full size, not needing any special treatment. Most of the agents, who knew I was struggling with this, did not help me, for example, I had to wait in line all over again, twice! There was one woman that tried to help me and put me to the front of the line on one occasion and the last agent was helpful as well. I did not get any names, which I should have, because at the end, I FINALLY had those two staff members who helped me (see liked comments). I still had to check my box, but the final agent really went out of her way to make me feel better about the experience because she could see that I was given the runaround. But the folks at Oversize and the pre-Security line, were absolutely horrible and rude. No excuse for it at all. None."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Poor check in process, no complementary food or drink and 30 late arriving"

Pros: "Did not rate the food as we slept through the meal"

Pros: "Flight on time, friendly crew."
Cons: "Not so good meals. For a 9 long-haul flight only one meal provided, other was a cheap candy bar. Other carriers do offer breakfast. Traveled with child and did not allow priority boarding at LHR. Limited leg room, I assume this already a trend well known by travelers."

Pros: "Courteous, helpful and on time. Good price as well."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "The crew was very considerate of the fact that we couldn’t order special meal, but quite willingly offered as food which is totally the opposite of our the previous flight"

Cons: "Bumpy but not BA’s fault"

Cons: "Never got on the flight. the delay in the previous flight did not allow me to board this one."

Pros: "Minor fault identified and notified to passengers prior to take-off, and dealt with immediately. Crew excellent"
Cons: "Cramped seating, the feel of a budget airline now in economy, with seat choice, refreshments and stowed baggage all ‘extra’"

Pros: "Everything was absolutely spot on except for larger than average people not being catered for."
Cons: "Being a big lad (6'6") it was difficult to get comfortable even with the extra leg room."

Cons: "delayed and they charged for soft drinks"

Pros: "On time. Helpful staff on the plane."
Cons: "I had two flights on British Airways on the same day separated by 4 hrs. The " system " would not allow my baggage to be sent to the final destination forcing me through the long arrivals line and then back through the lines for screening a second time for the day. That is not at all customer oriented !"

Pros: "Was upgraded to Premium Economy which was a pleasant surprise. The cabin crew was lovely and the flight was pleasant"

Pros: "The crew apologized for the late departure"
Cons: "We were left waiting for the technical issue to be fixe for more than an hour"

Pros: "Flying in 787 is always a joy. Quiet; great movie and music selection; nice contemporary user interface."
Cons: "The seat legroom was not the worst I had but sleeping in the chair was somehow very hard. I think the seat needed a little more backward inclination. There was a headrest, which was a good idea but didn't work out as expected."

Cons: "I loved everything except the in flight entertainment which was very limited and boring. Please upgrade it to the high standard and good quality of everything else. I spent the whole flight reading!"

Cons: "My daughter spent several hours in the checking in process. It was vary confusing and frustrating."

Pros: "The people were nice."

Cons: "Seats were way too uncomfortable for a trans atlantic flight. Our seats from atl to lhr were much better The crew didn't hand us customs forms in the back of the plane"

Pros: "The crew was polite and helpful."
Cons: "The temperature was extremely warm and the food was terrible."

Pros: "The crew inside the plane was amazing"
Cons: "As soon as i got to the check in window i was informed my flight was delayed and I had planned everything to be on time and since my flight was one hour late it kind messed things up a little bit. It seems that british airlines had a delay on purpose just to have a full flight, i wanted to change seats im a skinny guy and i was seated between TWO BIG people my elbows had to be tucked in all the time"

Pros: "The crew and flight were as expected"
Cons: "BA caused our original flight on norwegian to be delayed, we subsequently missed our flight from London to Venice. BA wouldn't even credit the cost of the missed flight to the rebooked flight. Had to pay full freight for first class because coach was booked."

Cons: "Seat too small. No free wifi in the XXI century? !!!"

Pros: "Flight crew was really polite. Very attentive and remembered what was requested."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic. Seats were really tiny. Crammed in, in all directions"

Cons: "No food, not even snacks or soft drinks offered unless you paid."

Pros: "Fight was on time. BA Crew always do a nice job."
Cons: "The entertainment on the flight didn't work. It is not easy to have two small kids on a 9 hour flight when the entertainment system isn't working properly. We did bring our own items to entertain our kids but with the limitations on what you can carry on we were banking on them being able to use the in flight system."

Pros: "Everything on the flight was fine the crew was great and the seats had a comfortable amount of legroom."
Cons: "I was shocked to learn that my ticket did not include any check in baggage allowance. Plus the charge of £60 per bags for our travel party of three was just rude. I was also disappointed to Learn that BA would not honor my One World Saphire status in anyway and give me a free checkin."

Pros: "Smooth boarding and on time on both flights. Food was decent."
Cons: "(1) Some in-flight entertainment issues which meant it wasn't working for about 30minites. (2) I know the crew have a hard job and have many difficult passengers to deal with. Even so I do find there's a bit too much "attitude" shown by some members of staff. On my flight to London, a mother with a young child wanted hot water and the staff (middle aged British male) was trying to tell her repeatedly she should say "please" when she asks. She was asking politely so this behaviour was rather poor in my view."

Cons: "Non-stop from Madrid to Philadelphia was canceled apparently because of a computer problem and then I was rerouted through Amsterdam with an extremely short connectios which in turn meant that baggage did not make it and was opened and damaged !!! BA clearly at fault. BA Reservations agent suggested to enter a complaint"

Pros: "Considering all the delays and cancelled flights (due to fog and all London airports closing) this flight was good."

Pros: "It was short enough not to get too annoyed with the experience"
Cons: "British Airways is no longer a preferred airline for me to fly with"

Pros: "Flight on time. Service good."

Cons: "Entertainment on the flight and also seats condition"

Pros: "Nothing to say"
Cons: "Too many Delays Very bad wheelchair service at Heathrow Airport Delayed Baggage Bad food options at American Airlines Flight"

Cons: "My original arrival in Houston was to be at 6PM, I landed at 2:30 AM, that about sums it all."

Pros: "Once we took off, all went very well!"
Cons: "Disappointed that paperwork issues caused a 2hr delay. the captain kept assuring a take off in "10mins" again and again which got rather annoying after a while!"

Pros: "The flight and in flight service was excellent"
Cons: "the rebooking of this flight was terrible, our seats were re booked from British Airways to American Airlines but not ticketed correctly by BA. I had to call airfare.com support four time with no resolution to only end up running from BA back to AA ticket counters only to be met with multiple BA agents that did not take the time to just lookup our flight info correctly. It took multiple time to finally have a BA ticket agent finally correct the issue. Please dont use Airfare.com their support is the worst."

Cons: "They lost my luggage!!!"

Cons: "Had to walk 2-3 miles and made transfers just to get to my gate"

Cons: "Better customer services"

Pros: "Excellent crew staff helping elderly handicapped man. Thank you from Team Trump."
Cons: "Snack would have been nice. Haven’t eaten since 6am before we left providence"

Cons: "Social distancing"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Less turbulence haha"

Pros: "The crew on the plane were great but even better was the women at the counter in terminal. She was amazing at getting everyone rerouted to their destinations"
Cons: "The WiFi was broken. the plane needed to be inspected and it took 2 attempts to get paperwork right and there was no inspector on the ground. 3 hours later after sitting on the plane for an hour with no food or drinks. If people have waited that long for one of your flights, give them a little food"

Cons: "I paid extra for an emergency exit seat. The seats in the row were visibly different from ones nearby -- the seat padding was gone (felt like I was sitting on a board) and the seat bottoms slanted down producing a feeling of sliding out of the seat."

Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "Being on time for once"

Pros: "Crew was polite, accommodating and pleasant"
Cons: "Seats too close together, too narrow, and without individual screens. Seats did not recline enough"

Cons: "Such tiny seats."

Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I wish these airlines would remember that people on the place are PEOPLE. After multiple delays, including one where we sat on a hot plane for over an hour, they did very little to make us comfortable. There's a reason why AA sits right next to United in terms of poor customer experiences"

Cons: "I do not like nor eat your cookies. You could do better."

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Flight was only 25% full. Nice crew"
Cons: "Seats are cramped. No noise canceling headphones."

Pros: "Again, we had heard stories of kids being separated from adults, but all family was together. Many entertainment options and friendly staff. Also, when I asked at gate, the attendant allowed our family with 3 kids ages 5, 7, 9 to board with one of the earlier groups. That helped a lot as it took the kids a little longer to get all set and we were not hurried."

Pros: "Seats were very comfortable and there was a good amount of leg room. I was very impressed the flight was not delayed as American is notorious for that."
Cons: "That staff is too strict about what you are holding when boarding the plane."

Pros: "Everything worked the way it was supposed to. Bag transfer through customs and transfer to domestic was easy."
Cons: "Snacks and food in general on US operated airlines is generally sad. American Airlines should learn from Qantas about food quality and service."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The Flight Crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Business class, Boeing 767-300 The seating configuration was 1/2/1 I would give these seats on a scale from 1 to 10 a 5, this was a very basic B/C seat, without a TV screen integrated to the seat in front of you, instead the flight crew hand out individual passenger entertainment systems, that are a pain to deal with and get in the way of everything your trying to do (ie eat, work, sleep.) I’m only 5’9 and I found when the seat was in the bed mode, the seat slopped down very slightly, and your feet would end up underneath the side table to the row of seats in front of you. As i wear a size 13 shoe, i found that space to be rather cramped especially for my feet."

Pros: "Flight was fast and comfortable."

Pros: "FUE OPERADO POR AMERICAN AIRLINES Y EL VUELO DESDE TAMPA DESPEGO TARDE Y PERDIMOS LA CONEXION A JAPON TODO EL DIA EN EL AEROPUERTO SOLO HASTA EL DIA 21 VAMOS A SALIR DE LOS ANGELES A TOKIO SI TENEMOS ALGO DE SUERTE MUY MALO EN VERDAD NOS ENTIMOS ENGAÑADOS"

Cons: "The food is very tasty, but AA has not changed the menu in at least one year."

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Movies selection poor and games could be better and touch screen not working properly"

Pros: "Almost everything :) Great new aircraft, really nice crew and well organized boarding."
Cons: "It is a longer flight that I would have liked, but I knew that."

Pros: "We got delayed 2 hours, we got very early to the airport, went to the gate, all the sudden they change the gate number and didn't tell nobody, we got delayed 2 hours and they didn't say nothing. we had perfect weather in NY so I don't understand the delay. The crew members were not friendly, the airplane was so old, my daughter called "the dinosaur" is the airplanes from the 70"s . This was my first time flying with this airline and I don't think Ill do it again. We were going to a wedding in Madrid and we miss it for the delayed."

Pros: "Priority boarding."
Cons: "Food is horrible at AA, in special breakfast!"

Cons: "Antiquated entertainment system. Lack of a/c power outlets at each seat."

Pros: "There was a lot to see"
Cons: "The screens were severely delayed and frustrating."

Pros: "staff was amazing, entertainment great, dasani sparkling lime water tasty, very clean and reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "the breakfast was made of 90% sugar - this was very disappointing."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly and attentive."

Pros: "The smoothness of the ride"
Cons: "Boarding was rushed then we sat on plane for an hour before take off. Then movies i wanted to watch wouldnt work and crew was annoyed and not helpful. Food was ok... mashed potatoes would have been better as rice with chicken."

Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment, seat was not clean."

Cons: "Missed that flight because my finair was delayed at Helsinki"

Cons: "This boarding by groups is inefficient."

Pros: "Small airport"
Cons: "Service and flexibility, needed to call online for assistance"

Cons: "."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Cons: "They canceled my ticket for no reason"

Cons: "Very late"

Pros: "No water no food nothing good"

Pros: "As a bonus, I was bumped up to Business class on the way back because the flight was full. The lie-flat seat was amazing and food in Business really was "next level.""

Pros: "Nothing. Again, super old plane, no screens, no movies, zero effort."
Cons: "I got tricked into spending $80 for a seat with legroom. I'm 6'6" there is zero compassion and/or understanding for being a tall person. That's fine, I'll pay more. But then I was sat in a 'special' section, the only 2 seats that are narrower than a regular seat. The flight attendant said there was nothing they could do. 5 1/2 hours and I spent half the time standing up to avoid serious cramps. As a tall person I am literally getting phased out of airline seats. My knee to hip length prevents me from sitting in some seats. No one cares."

Pros: "I was lucky to get an upgrade to business class. It was fantastic, of course, as business class should be. Great crew, great space."
Cons: "Limited selection of movies. Or maybe I'm just old and grumpy and not interested in dozens of superhero movies!"

Cons: "It's not the first time that I was forced to gate check my carry on luggage. They claim that the cabinet in the plan is full while actually there is plenty of spaces for multiple luggages to be there. The crew was rude and refuse to explain it in an acceptable way. When I asked why cant I carry it when there is enough space, she simply says because you just can't. Do you want to take the plan or not! This is unacceptable."

Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "American has gone to these thin seats so that they can cram more cattle into the back. They are absolutely the most uncomfortable seats I've ever had the displeasure of being forced to sit in, and unless you're willing to pay even more for "premium" seats, you won't even have enough space to sit. I will never, never, ever give American Airlines another penny."

Cons: "Entertainment screen didn't work, luckily someone let me switch seats so I would get bored"

Pros: "We had a delay due to an equipment malfunction. They deboarded us so we didn't have to sit on a hot plane. That was greatly appreciated. The crew and gate personell in Cedar Rapids were very friendly and organized in getting us all back on the plane as quickly as possible."
Cons: "We made up time in the air to Dallas. We arrived early and waited about 15min. Due to another plane being in our gate."

Pros: "The crew was excellent and the plane was new."
Cons: "The seats are entirely too close together. If I wanted to be crammed in uncomfortably close to the seat in front of me, I would have chosen a budget airline like Spirit. I am not a large person by any means in terms of height or weight, and I cannot imagine how anyone who is relatively tall could ever be comfortable on your airline. Will not likely book again."

Pros: "Awesome plane, clean"
Cons: "Pilot didn’t speak the whole flight, only the crew. Better boarding by groups more distributed. Group 5 felt like the whole plane was boarding in one group."

Pros: "Crew were all excellent and very helpful"
Cons: "Counter and check in staff were exceptionally rude and unhelpful. The pervading attitude at Dulles was they were incredibly inconvenienced that I had bought a ticket and wanted to check in luggage and was going to fly."

Cons: "Leaving on time. More updates on status. Water was served 2 hours after sitting in tarmac."

Cons: "A/C was too cold. We paid for Coach Plus but it doesn’t provide benefits equal to other airlines, such as free checked bag and priority boarding."

Pros: "We landed safe"
Cons: "I Paid for preferred seats. When we got to the airport our seat assignment changed. We were not in the seats I paid extrs for. No money offered or returned."

Cons: "Very turbulent day."

Pros: "Everything was very nice."

Pros: "Arrived early 787-9"

Cons: "slight delay but still made connecting flight"

Cons: "N/a"

Pros: "Everything smooth! Yes, a couple younguns’ a little on the cryin’ side... but everyone has to get through that sooner rather than later (and, BTW, they had incredible legroom in Economy so whazzup with that???)."

Pros: "I liked everything was excellent"
Cons: "There was a 10 minutes delay"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Delay, delay, delay, missed connection"

Pros: "The process of boarding seemed very organized compared to other flights . The staff was friendly"
Cons: "I wish they had a different type of water but overall it was a good flight"

Pros: "On time"

Pros: "the crew was great. there were several high maintenance travelers on this flight. they handled them the best they could."
Cons: "so uncomfortable. my knees hit the seat in front of me (i am of average height). seat would not recline."

Pros: "Service was nice"
Cons: "It would be nice to get some regular free snacks on board, instead of having to pay for every tiny thing."

Pros: "Flight attendant"
Cons: "No door operations"

Cons: "Bought these tickets almost a year in advance. Never given the option to select seats. Both my husband and I were stuck in the middle seats or not together on each leg of our flight. Food was horrible on every leg. Husbands tv did not work. I am petite and seats too small even for me. never again will o give this airline my money."

Pros: "Smooth flight, friendly crew"
Cons: "I can’t rate the food as this flight didn’t offer any."

Pros: "Boarding was easy and smooth. Even the seats in economy had plenty of leg room."
Cons: "I am not a fan of United WiFi. I was never able to watch more than five minutes of anything before the program had "unfortunately stop responding""

Pros: "No one sitting next to me."
Cons: "I need more room."

Pros: "Closed the door in my face... wouldn't let me board"
Cons: "No customer service as a loyal united customer for years I've been treated so badly the past few years. Regardless flying first, business or economy. I truly regret being a loyal united flyer... this flight was the last straw"

Cons: "Delayed of 5 hours without much information. Huge line to passport control By United which i have never seen before."

Pros: "Polite and friendly staff."

Pros: "Courteous attendants and overall great flight"
Cons: "The mixed trail mix, honestly that's all :)"

Pros: "Not happy. Can't afford such high fees to reschedule flight to see my 82 yo parents. I would have to fly first class to have room for my broken leg now. Doctor won't approve flight since this just happened 3/28/17. But, I can't pay so much more to fly home after surgery....near the holidays. Just makes me sad. I had insurance on 1 flight so i hope i can get 1/2 of my ticket price back. Yup, I messed up the insurance on the 2nd flight. My bad. So I'm out for 1 ticket, and a broken leg and torn ACL and I didn't see my folks. Can you do anything to help me, United? Please? Thanks. Pretty tough week."
Cons: "Will be disappointed if you don't try to help."

Pros: "The flight arrived"
Cons: "United claimed the flight was delayed due to weather but two other flights to Houston were able to leave on time and no other United flights appeared to have been delayed. No apologies, no compensation, did not even give free access to wifi during flight."

Pros: "Enjoyed the free movies"

Pros: "I need some substance $400 for a flight And you offered me No water or snack"

Pros: "Polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Had to wait 40 minutes for a gate"

Pros: "The crew was friendly"
Cons: "Having to pay for dieect TV when on other flights there are movies & TV options for free. The seats were very small. I'm an average ish size 14 and was very uncomfortable on this plane, especially sitting in the last row."

Pros: "Sucked. .the boarding process was a cluster.tiny bag of salted ceap..huge snoring man sweating on me in seat"
Cons: "everyrhing"

Pros: "Flight was on time departing and very early for arrival."
Cons: "Boarding agents and cabin crew didn't convey a friendly tone. Multiple announcements made about keeping the boarding lanes clear and roller bags needing to be checked though some space in the overheads remained available. A full flight in the same plane from Denver seems to have plenty of overhead space, but a full plane leaving Atlanta runs out early?"

Pros: "Free movies and wifi"
Cons: "On time arrived early"

Pros: "Old aircraft, but it had the old more comfortable seats. Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "My 1.5 hr round trip ticket was $1000. No wifi. Snack mix was a mixture of pretzels and dried garbage. Stick with just pretzels United."

Pros: "The off boarding was quick"
Cons: "I paid for the extra comfort seat and this seat does not recline. My back is sore from sitting up for the whole time. Also the delays were horrible. 3 hours delayed for an 1 HR flight."

Cons: "They cancelled my flight made Me fly to Syracuse instead of bing."

Pros: "Flight attendants nice and friendly"

Cons: "This flight didn't happen."

Pros: "Your staff."
Cons: "The delays."

Pros: "united customer service quickly booked new flight for second leg as I was not going to make it in time"
Cons: "I did not like waking up super early in the morning only to sit at airport for 3 hours because an escape hatch leaked and got the radios wet. only to have the nearest tech over an hour away. and for him to not be able to do anything but let it dry out. Then the flight attendants did not even do a beverage service."

Cons: "The plane never cooled to below 80 degrees"

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Four hour delay"
