Cons: "DO NOT FLY AVIANCA IF YOU HAVE ANYWHERE YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO GO! The flight was delayed by 7 hours. We were told different stories Time and Time again by the ground crew. Either the plane was on the way or it was turning back, or it had landed or was perpetually 20 mins from landing. At one point, they did slip and admit that they actually had no way of actually tracking the plane, so everything they told us had been wild guesses about what had actually been happening! When some passengers asked to speak with a manager, we were told that the manager was not accepting calls at that time. After hours and hour and hours of delays and lies, they finally found a plane, but we still had to wait an hour for a crew as the original crew was now over their time limit. Once we were airborne, the flight was smooth and the newly cobbled together crew was nice. Zero mention or promise of reparations for the massive delay. AGAIN, DO NOT FLY AVIANCA IF YOU HAVE ANYWHERE YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO GO!"

Cons: "Back row, but someone has to sit there :)"
Cons: "Still waiting to get to the terminal."
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."
Cons: "The in flight wi if didn’t work part of the flight."
Cons: "2 hour delay. Then when beginning to taxi out, a person gets sick, and we head back to the gate. We wait another 20 minutes as the passenger decides whether to continue on (at that point it should not have been their decision). We then are told, the passenger has elected to take a later flight, and there will be a bit more delay as they find his/her baggage."
Cons: "American Airlines DISCRIMINATES especially against the elderly! The airlines took my family of 6 off the flight that I booked 6 months in advance, and I had no flight out of Munich, Germany. I do not know why. I called and had them put us back on the flight. I paid extra for seats so that we could all sit together. The seats were given to others and my family could not sit together. The American Airlines employees were not helpful at all! The agent, Rowna, lied to us that we would be sitting together. They will not reimburse me for paying extra for seats that I did not get. The porter that pushed my mother in the wheelchair was more helpful than any employee."

Cons: "it was cancelled "mechanical" sure heard that one before"
Cons: "Gate was changed, then flight delayed, then maintenance was required on plane further delaying, then once arriving on an already warm plane, another flight made it to our gate first so we had to sit for over 30mins on an un-air conditioned pressure cooker. It was 80 degrees outside but much hotter inside the plane. Quite miserable. Overall it was over 2 1/2 hour delay."
Cons: "2 hours late. Kept moving the boarding time by 10min"
Pros: "My flight experience with Etihad Airway was fantastic. I will recommend anyone to flight with Etihad. Thank you for your great service Etihad crews. I will flight with you again soon."
Cons: " the "group system" boarding process arranges passengers in an aleatory way making the process totally chaotic. For instance last groups are the last ones to enter the aircraft and don't easily find space for the hand luggage. They have to accommodate bags under the front seat making the already uncomfortable trip more painful. Also this process may delay the departure time.  Food service is terrible. no options, specially for kids or people with food restrictions. Not even the payed ones offer healthy food alternatives.  No comfort at all for a flight that departs little before midnight and arrives at 7 am at its destination. They forgot about the pillows and blankets you find in other airlines.  at the end, when I collected my baggage I realized 1 wheel was missing from one of my suitcases. I informed the airline and 3 days later I receive an email saying that the airline is not responsible for damages that include wheels and other "baggage accessories" I did not rate the flight poor because at least it manages to arrive to its final destination..."
Pros: "Food and movies"
Cons: "Live Tv CNN did not work"
