Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Customer service and food."

Pros: "The plane was very new and wasn’t crowded."
Cons: "The arrival time was slightly delayed but overall it was okay. The hot food again can be improved as the chicken dish had no vegetables (even though there was a side salad dish). The waiting lounge at Doha airport gate was a bit cramped, and the bus ride from the gate to the aircraft was also a bit long."

Cons: "The time of flight changed 1:30 hour erlier and we did get noticed we were about to miss the flight it’s so annoying but at the end we catch it"

Pros: "Thank you for a very good flight experience both from Philadelphia to Doha and Doha to Johannesburg."
Cons: "The breakfast options could have been better, but I was fed and happy, and the flight attendant was kind enough to bring me green tea when it wasn’t readily available on the cart."

Pros: "Service is courteous, both on the ground and air. Food & entertainment was top-notch as well. Enjoyed my flight, again on Qatar!"

Pros: "Excellent entertainment very friendly crew"
Cons: "Food...again"

Pros: "Entertainment is very good"
Cons: "it felt like sitting in a sardine box"

Cons: "I didn't like that my original return flight selection was changed one month after confirming. The new flight details which were automatically chosen for me had me coming back home a full day later. This forced me to have to select a new return flight with an 8 hour layover."

Pros: "I was met with a warm smile which made me feel welcome. The staff were friendly and professional. Even though it was a full flight, I did not just feel like a number, top airline. I will choice them again."

Pros: "Video on Demand at each seat in coach. Friendly staff. Also patient staff, what with the languages they have to cover with each flight. The airline goes everywhere so it’s impossible to say what anyone will be speaking."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "No HE"

Pros: "Staff is friendly"
Cons: "The seats are tight and I am a slim person"

Cons: "The employees were not motivated to work. Food was scarce and I was left starving the whole flight. On a 16 hour flight, there should be more food and beverage service other than the 2 times the attendants served us. How can we stay hydrated if we aren't being given any liquids?"

Cons: "Airport hotel costs around 350$ No entry visa for layovers exceeds 8 hours as they announced The answer they’re not giving entry visas is you bought a discounted ticket!!"

Pros: "Seats are comfortable with plenty of leg space. Aircrafts were clean and tidy. Landing and take off were smoothest I have ever experienced."
Cons: "Menu choice was very basic and quantity was also poor. Food quality was below par in terms of taste and presentation. In-flight crew was inefficient and flow. Meal trays laid on meal tables for hours after the passengers finished food. Flight attendants literally responded in over 30 min of call. I pressed special meals online before boarding. However, the flight attendants were not sure. They went back to kitchen to verify that and return with the ordered meal."

Cons: "in flight entertainment interface can be improved to be more user friendly."

Pros: "-Cleanliness -on time arrival"
Cons: "-Cramped seats I have flown long haul to Melbourne on Cathay and Emirates and Qatar airways economy seats were excruciating to sit in."

Pros: "Not crowded plane. Some fantastic flight attendants. Very helpful and dedicated to make customers happy and help us enjoy the flight"
Cons: "Not very comfortable seating. A couple of not so friendly flight attendants. Crew on the ground in Doha not very attentive or cooperative"

Pros: "Helpful and frieendly"
Cons: "Counters should have opened earlier so we could have done aome ahopping at dfs"

Pros: "Flawless boarding, service, food and arrived 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "delayed flight"

Pros: "Staff were polite and helpful. Flight was smooth and on time. Overall very good considering length of flight and difficulty of accommodating such a large crowd for such a long time."
Cons: "Meal service was very disappointing. 16 hour flight with one meal at the beginning, one meal at end, and a small, rather unappetizing hot pocket like sandwich in between? And snack offerings were ice cream, potato chips, candy bars and a few apples (ran out of apples). Need more healthy options. There needs to be a more full meal/snack offering around the half way mark if you are going to keep people from grumbling."

Pros: "flat bed business class seats"
Cons: "flight was delayed by more than four hours. as per the ground staff due to technical hitch but as per the pilot due to run way maintenance in COK. but there were other flights from Emirate, Jet, Ethihad all flying in and out without any issues, so doubt why only runway maintenance for QR.."

Cons: "The customer service of your company is the worst."

Pros: "Seat and space"
Cons: "Food was pathetic."

Cons: "They supposed to provide Wheel chair for my elderly mother in Law who had a foot fracture, was very hard /painful to walk. I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."

Pros: "everything was great. huge seats, large legroom."

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Non"

Cons: "I had to track down a flight attendant in order to get the dinner. They seem to have asked most other people, but just went right by me until I caught their attention."

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Connection"

Pros: "every thing was good bout only test of kook food was not good."

Pros: "The staff. Very courteous and friendly."
Cons: "Nothing"

"Lufthansa is the worst airlines ever !! Very unprofessional I then booked another flight back to Dubai on Emirates"

Cons: "Best flight to DFW"

Pros: "The crew positive attitude"
Cons: "We understand the COVID-19 crisis but a drink on board other than water will not have bid cost impact on Air Canada, for instance juice or cola,... Also, access on internet on board is now payable -$25 for the flight is exaggerated, it should be free knowing the limited number of passengers on board"

Cons: "Again, there was not enough time between flights. It was a HUGE rush in Denver to get to my next flight, and I almost missed it."

Pros: "The crew was attentive"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for an hour."

Pros: "Lufthansa hands down is the best airline I have ever flown!"

Pros: "Friendly and cheerful crew. Very generous with the drinks."
Cons: "Very very long walk from aircraft to Schiphol exit. I must have walked for 20 minutes to get out. Not really Lufthansa's fault though."

Pros: "Nice crew comfortable seats selection of drinks were good"
Cons: "Better blankets too cold on the plane"

Pros: "Efficiency"
Cons: "Na"

Pros: "Worst ever"
Cons: "Poor service"

Pros: "Entertainment on Detroit flight was great as well as the seating, food, and crew.."

Pros: "Excellent service, professionalism, and almost no turbulence."

Pros: "This space intentionally left blank"
Cons: "For starters, they sat my 12 year old daughter 6 rows away and both of us in center seats so no one would switch with us. Mid flight, my daughter asked to switch with me since the guy next to her kept asking personal questions and was making her uncomfortable. Second, the in flight entertainment did not work. Third, I had pre-ordered a diabetic meal, they “think they may have given it to someone else.” Fourth, one hour delay making for a tight connection. And finally... they lost my suitcase. Should arrive in a few days."

Pros: "Comfortable with good food, drink, entertainment and service. Flight left on time."
Cons: "NA"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"

Pros: "The crew was the most accommodating I’ve ever had and I was in the basic economy seating. The food was better, pls es more comfortable, and entertainment far more advanced."

Pros: "The crew did a great job. The flight turned out to be nearly 10 hours since we had 150 knot headwinds. The food and free wine made things much to tolerable. You can't go wrong with Lufthansa."

Pros: "WiFi access"

Cons: "Flight got delayed by more than an hour, so my layover was cut short and had to rush to catch my next flight"

Pros: "Comfortable seats; food was adequate"
Cons: "Seats seem a bit close to one another, with little knee room"

Cons: "My flight schedule changed after I bought the ticket, which resulted in paying for the hotel for the extra night and using one more PTO day."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Horrible experience. Stranded for 3 hours inside stationary flight, 4 hours in a long queue. Very very poorly managed. I slept on a chair in the cold weather. Atleast make arrangements for bad situations, apparently I was booked on another flight but they made me stand in a 4 hour long queue to find that out. Kiosk outside showed I was put in no flight. One of my worst experiences and rest assured if I’m given a chance I will never choose Lufthansa again."

Cons: "Terrible food and atrocious crew staff -- impatient, rude, unhelpful and racist. Unacceptable to give kitkat and sweet offerings for kids meals both times. Zero nutrition and terrible for children. Adult meals were equally unpalatable. Aircraft was also older and not in the best condition."

Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "They ran out of food- I didn’t have dinner on that flight. We were almost 2 hours late to Dubai. I was irritated to say the least."

Pros: "Stewardess enjoyed her work encouraged us to take better seats. A full hot meal."

Pros: "I loved the hot towels."
Cons: "Not enough leg room!!!!!!! (I am only 5.3 Inch tall) What about the taller people? I was having stomach problems after eating the airplane food."

Pros: "Everything was great and deserves excellent in all categories."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The attendants were very respectful and courteous, most of them"
Cons: "Boarding is disorganized, flight was delayed, baggage took over an hour to get."

Pros: "Was no flight"

Pros: "Movies were good"
Cons: "Seats were not comfortable. Service was not good. Rude staff. Horrible experience."

Pros: "Staff was nice. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The touchscreen tv seevice was the slowest I have ever seen. The entertainment options were very limited, even less optikns for kids. The back of my chair was not reclining. The food was terrible. Kids did not eat anything at all."

Pros: "I thought the crew was OUTSTANDING. The food was good and so was the entertainment. I LOVED the toilets being in the separate area downstairs. I also really appreciated the temperature: very comfortable and not freezing cold, but not hot either. Again, GREAT crew!!! Very pleasant flight!"
Cons: "The flight was late leaving and arrived late, which made my connecting flight experience a nightmare My connecting flight arrived late, and I nearly missed my next flight. I had to go through border control (and relevant queues), running up and down multiple never-ending multiple escalators, then take a train to change terminal only to find out the gate had been changed to the furthest one in the terminal. I literally RAN all the way from deplaining to boarding. It was a night mare. I would have missed my flight if I had walked instead of running"

Pros: "I loved the ample number of bathrooms and their cleanliness. This was hugely important to me and would be reason enough to choose Lufthansa (and not Swiss Air) again. The families-first boarding made our flight much more pleasant than we'd expected. In all my travels, it's rare for me to have two pleasantly astounding experiences in the same flight. Thank you for your improvements of bathrooms, Lufthansa!"
Cons: "Other airlines have flight attendants who are a bit warmer and more responsive to children. That's one area where Swiss Air came out on top."

Pros: "Excellent service. Everybody from the crew up had smile. Very good atmosphere. I would definitely fly with up guts again"
Cons: "I'm 6'2 230 seat was tight for me but that is it"

Pros: "I am 6'1 so I wish could have afforded 1st class, but I am grateful to the desk staff who made sure I was as comfortable as possible. Great movies. Good food."
Cons: "The tightness of the seats!"

Pros: "efficient."
Cons: "cramped. people are getting taller and taller. seats are getting closer to each other."

Pros: "Brand new Airbus 350 on the first transatlantic flight for Lufthansa was very nice"

Pros: "We often fly on Lufthansa and highly recommend it!"
Cons: "There was no movie..."

Pros: "I appreciated the advance boarding for families traveling with younger children. Plenty of time to settle in with the kiddos."

Pros: "Geat customer service by flight attendants."

Cons: "Bathroom was at the back of the plane and the drink service was slow so I had top wait overt half an hour to use the bathroom; I was in row 4."

Cons: "The seats were very cramped. A little about my height, I'm 5'2" and had a difficult time with no leg room. I sat by the window which gave me a little more wiggle room but it was not the most comfortable flight. Also a note about being able to get up from the seat to move about. The other person in the row had to get up to allow me in and out and I still had to make sure not to pull on the seat in front of me just trying to get up out of the seat. Thankfully, I only had to get out twice through the whole flight."

Pros: "Flight on time"

Pros: "Overall great experience!"

Pros: "Very accomdating crew"

Cons: "We were in economy class. It looked like the seats my wife and I were in were smaller than the surrounding seats. The seat I was assigned was also more narrow than the one my wife was assigned. I am tall, and could not move my legs for the trip. Also, the seat controls were on the inside is the seat. I could not move at all without turning on the overhead light or screen."

Cons: "Flight was canceled. They packed us on another one 3 hours later. Crying babies, bad food and uncomfortable, squishy seats made the flight unpleasant."

Pros: "Consistency of service, even for economy class. On time departure. Early arrival, Teutonic punctuality. Well maintained aircraft. Super flight crew. Seemed friendlier than typical US carriers transcontinental service. Perhaps it was the free wine and beer, but seems as if everyone was relaxed and enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "Boarding was a little out of my normal sequence and the PA announcements were not so clear. All sorted it self out after a spell."

Pros: "- Polite, professional, flexible service by crew - No delays - Quick check in - Free of charge alcohol - Free coffee & newspaper at Munich Airport (Lufthansa)"
Cons: "- Entertainment touchscreen is crappy. Far from averege. Outdated. - Elbow room in the seat is tight even for an averge person"

Cons: "The plane is so old..,"

Pros: "The aircraft"
Cons: "No overbooking next time!"

Pros: "The crew was great. The soecial meal request was hadled well despite oversight."
Cons: "Soecial meal request was made in advance but overlooked. Did not mind it so much as eating less is not a bad idea! To err is human."

Cons: "Don’t be late"

Cons: "1. In Flight Entertainment 2. Controlled In Flight Temperature"

Cons: "Staff rude and short"

Pros: "Crew was friendly"

Pros: "Nice attention and good food. Plane and seats are confortable"

Cons: "There was no wifi on flight"

Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "My suitcase wasn’t in the plane. 8 hours in the plane and no one offered us water. We had to look for flight attendant. Entertainment wasn’t great not too many choices and quality of screens was poor"

Pros: "Crew was great and professional."
Cons: "Entertainment controls were outdated and confusing to operate. There were no charging ports."

Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful. Moved me up front in the plane so I could make my connection."
Cons: "Not having to walk outside in Edinbur4gh to board the flight."

Pros: "Crew was nice and efficient"
Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."

Pros: "The crew!!"

Cons: "Too much light in the cabin because of too many screens on. Should have a separate part of the cabin with screens off allowing one to sleep more easily."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."

Pros: "Travel on Crostian Airlines did not pappen. KLM flight to Munich was cancelled and I was rescheduled on Air Setbia to Belgrade, the Split."
Cons: "That it didn’t happen."

Cons: "Our two hour connection in Paris became 30 minutes because Air France was late in leaving Washington. So our luggage didn't make to to KLM to Amsterdam. My poor rating was because the luggage handling was really poor. Lots of flights from Paris to Amsterdam (almost hourly), but my bag showed up 12 hours later. My wife's bag took 36 hours. And yes, we checked in together. There were lots of confusing messages"

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight."

Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."

Pros: "Service, technology"
Cons: "Could not print by boarding card and was not allowed to board in Amsterdam"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."

Pros: "Decent seat size. Sorta slept the whole flight."

Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."

Pros: "Just great crew."
Cons: "Not comfortable at all and will not book KLM again."

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

Pros: "Cabin crew very pleasant"
Cons: "Lost our bags, little sympathy from staff"

Pros: "That we didn’t crash"
Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."

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

Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."

Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."

Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"

Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."

Pros: "I was upgraded to Buisness so, no complaints"
Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"

Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."

Pros: "The constant supply of food that was offered to you. The crew was nice and always helpful."
Cons: "The process of boarding in Amsterdam was not organized and felt more stressful than it needed to be."

Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"

Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"

Pros: "Atmosphere, crew were very professional and friendly"
Cons: "Seats were a little too narrow, and quite uncomfortable when a broad shouldered person is sitting next to you"

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"

Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"

Pros: "Nice, turbulent-free flight. Food was good, service with a smile. Leg space was OK because Boeing 777s are usually better at this."
Cons: "Flight left over an hour late because of a sensor glitch. It is concerning when a technical glitch happens. But, the flight was smooth."

Cons: "Seat recline was broken- wouldn’t hold position."

Pros: "The gentleman at the check out his name was Omar went over and above the call of duty for Customer Service me being an American he walked me through each step of using flybe via air France and paying for checking my bags and even the carry on luggage and getting me through security etc."

Cons: "Advertised October Pink products but did not have them for breast cancer support"

Pros: "Nice and attentive crew."
Cons: "Seats not comfortable in premier economy."

Pros: "The bread was fresh and food better than other times"
Cons: "Crew is always aggressive and unfriendly"

Pros: "The crew was terrific."

Cons: "Kayak updated me that my flight would be late. It wasn't. Missed it had to pay $700"

Cons: "We didn’t travel to Detroit... we were re-routed 3 times and our luggage is lost, some really helpful ppl along the way (thankfully) and some really crummy ppl too... no in between... still not to our destination"

Pros: "The comfort of the flight snd kindness of the crew."
Cons: "My connecting flight to san francisco was through Delta, which it was on a different terminal, I had to carry my luggage out of the airport in order to get to delta’s terminal - the buildings are not connected."

Pros: "Crew great."

Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Everything very good"

Pros: "The new movies selection, food was very good, staff more friendly than previous flights"
Cons: "Boarding always a problem on MEA we have to wait too long in the queue"

Pros: "Flight was in time"

Pros: "Nice staff. Flight on time."
Cons: "Bus to plane. Long walk to terminal upon arrival. Long Liong customs line?!!??"

Pros: "We were a little delayed, so I read my book. Not for long though as I was really tired after my flight from Los Angeles. I fell asleep right after take-off and didn't wake until we landed. Best way to fly :-)"
Cons: "Very little legroom for a 6'1" guy. Would have liked a bit more space, but I guess I was too tired to let it bug me."

Cons: "Missed the flight due to late landing from earlier connection"

Pros: "Crew was nice movie selection was good."
Cons: "Plane was late which caused a 5 hour layover in Paris CDG. Food not very good. Entertainment system clumsy to operate."

Pros: "Short flight so I can't really complain. It was no frills, standard small aircraft with no high tech entertainment system. Seats were fairly comfortable"

Pros: "Leg space was great, food was delicious, alcohol served 3-4 times, and the in-flight entertainment was spectacular. I saw 4 movies and slept somewhat comfortably for once!"

Pros: "The Air France service was ok. Got me to my destination on time and alive."
Cons: "I flew out on KLM on what felt like a new plane. Amazing service, seat, temperature, entertainment and food. In stark comparison Air France’s plane was old, too hot, poor entertainment choices and system and average food which for the French was surprising!"

Cons: "Long delays to go through security screening and then further delays as the plane was still being fueled at departure time."

Pros: "Everything!"

Pros: "Food was Fantastic, Air France the Best on Air."

Pros: "La entrada"
Cons: "El resto de cosas"

Pros: "Courteous crew"

Pros: "I didn’t actually liked the entertainment"
Cons: "I just didn’t enjoy the entrainment."

Pros: "Super fast boarding and smooth takeoff"

Pros: "Very poor sound quality on the earphones. Made it very difficult to watch a movie and almost impossible to listen to music."

Pros: "The fresh bread and cheese."
Cons: "The staff is very unprofessional in receiving the passengers and serving the drinks mainly. The luggage wasn’t received and after 24 hrs no news about it! It’s a shame"

Pros: "The cheese and the bread"
Cons: "The unprofessional staff during boarding and food serving"

Cons: "Very small seats, space for nothing All the time delays and the horrible things is a lost luggage, even when there is enough time between flights."

Pros: "Smoothness of flight and service"
Cons: "In a french airline, chinese-cuisine meal was more attractive than western. Unbelievable! Entertainment: films were either too old, or too uninteresting"

Pros: "It es a good flight back"
Cons: "Items missing on duty free purchases"

Cons: "Some toilet facilities out of order and some slow service"

Pros: "Nice food Right in time Police and customs formalities easy"
Cons: "Poor comfort in business class No entertainment at all"

Pros: "Short, lots of leg space"

Cons: "The air France flight was overbooked and we had been in standby until the last minute"

Pros: "We were on a 9 hour flight which is pretty exhausting on its own. However, Air France provided you with a pillow and blanket, as well as headphones, so that you can make the best of the long trip."
Cons: "The chairs, for whatever reason, after just not that comfortable. Too squishy and they make noise when you adjust your position. I fidget a lot on flights so I felt like I was making a lot of noise. Also the plane didn't have cold air, do you get toasty pretty quick."

Pros: "No delays, service with a smile"
Cons: "Nothing to report."

Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good."

Cons: "Meal choice missing kosher non-gluten combination."

Cons: "delay for one hour with not even a glass of water very old plan video with tiny screens and bad resolution food quality especially bread is not good"

Pros: "Loved the lovely food and wine from Air France, they even serve fresh french bread with camembert, ice cream, champagne (in economy) and brandy with your coffee!"
Cons: "The cabin on the 777-200 was far too hot (about 25c) and with no individual air vent I found this unbearable on a 12 hour flight. And despite the flight taking place entirely during daylight hours and leaving at 10:30 am, inexplicably we were made to all pull our blinds down and the lights went off after a couple of hours - in the middle of the day and for about 8 hours! So although I had paid for a window seat there was nothing to see apart from the window shade. As it was the middle of the day I could not go to sleep, the person in front of me reclined fully so for me the flight was a hot, claustropobic, dark hell. An utterly miserable experience. I felt like I was going mad, trapped in my own little cell."

Pros: "Spacing was ok"
Cons: "Scents. Perfumes. Products that have scents that irritate airways. Not good for asthma and allergies."

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1 hour 30 minutes. After over 24 hours of travel this was not appreciated. Also no lounge access at Toronto airport."

Pros: "After riding in premium economy for the 8 hour flight we had, this one wasn't the same. No tvs, way less leg room, we were able to have a window seat which was great for my sister since before we didn't have the window seat option. The snack was good also."
Cons: "After riding in premium economy for the 8 hour flight we had, this one wasn't the same. No tvs, way less leg room."

Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Food on AF montreal - paris flight and totally rude stewardesses"

Pros: "You get everything you would expect in this kind of flight in term of meals, comfort and entertainment."
Cons: "The flight left half an hour late because of weather conditions. But it is more an airport issue rather than an airline one."

Pros: "Bar/Coctail service on AF was excellent."
Cons: "Boarding area at CDG had almost nothing in the way of food and drink. Only one small Illy. Unbelievable in a major international airport."

Pros: "Great service by attendants Spoiled us with food"
Cons: "Not easy to find reader boards at Paris airport. Also security almost made us not make connection"

"This is not customer service. Let’s not pretend. Flying American is transactional at best. I pay for transportation, the airline provides transportation (unbound by comfort and convenience)… the end. No one is there to impress or innovate, they simply just exist as part of the transportation process. Avoid if you have other options."

"Everything was ok , ."

"Flight on time. Short flight. No food needed."

Pros: "Friendly and prompt attendants."
Cons: "I couldn't ask for anything more from American than what was provided"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Connections great"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable."

Pros: "They offered some entertainment"
Cons: "Took no caution with coronavirus. Packed the plane with the seats full and all rows filled. I was not expecting this especially since my flight was not cheap."

Pros: "Miserable all around experience"
Cons: "The flight delay was not reported correctly until 30 minutes before expected departure. The baggage carousel stopped running after already being more then a hour late. No members present to rectify. Absolutely terrible trip"

Cons: "Nothing evething is ok"

Pros: "The crew was incredibly attentive and helpful."

Pros: "Whole row to myself. Greqt movie, in early and informative pro of a captain."

Pros: "My crew was very attentive"

Cons: "The flight attendants were friendly, watched a movie, thanks for the ear buds to listen to the movie. There was a lot of turbulence but I feel our pilot managed it very well bringing us in safely and smoothly as possible. I can't think of anything that could have been improved on."

Cons: "Less passengers or bigger plane means more room. Everything was perfect except for being uncomfortably cramped."

Pros: "Everything was excellent"

Cons: "I never got to go on my trip... wasted all my money and never got anywhere and can't seem to get a refund or at least another ticket."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Working plane mechanical issues"

Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Side seats suck"

Pros: "In flight entertainment and food were great"
Cons: "Wish seats were comfier and more legroom"

Pros: "The crew was amazing, considering the late flight & full plane."

Pros: "WiFi"
Cons: "Had to take shuttle to other side of airport which took over an hour. Very very poor experience. Also, Seats had no room pull down table."

Cons: "Took forever to get the bags"

Pros: "Confortable seating and boarding was good."
Cons: "Crew was attentive to process but not the people. Kinda like machines"

Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Baggage was not that faster but was still okay Although improvements will be great"

Cons: "Despite inbound flight - with the same airline - coming in 6 minutes early the connecting flight was closed when arriving at the gate. Rebooked on next flight some 3 hours later."

Pros: "Would fly again- irritated at how does a flight manage to get overbooked"
Cons: "Flight was 3 seats overbooked, they had to wait until 3 people willingly took a later flight. Like a game of chicken between 100 people."

Pros: "The crew was top notch, very pleasant and went the extra mile."
Cons: "My husband and I were assigned seats in a different part of the plane from one another."

Pros: "Pleasent"

Pros: "They rerouted me so I at least salvaged some of my trip."
Cons: "They rerouted me for no reason making me miss my reunion."

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: "Bought 2 tickets but seats weren’t together poor service"

Pros: "Despite numerous delays, we made it to Philadelphia. We were alerted to the delays in a timely manner. We were also treated to a snack cart and cupcakes to celebrate the first day of direct flights."
Cons: "A long delay. Patience is everything and the staff and crew were very friendly."

Pros: "Staff and Entertainment"
Cons: "Back row, but someone has to sit there :)"

Pros: "I've recently had problems with other airlines in the past few years. It seems that flight attendants get more and more rude by the day! I had nothing but a pleasant time on both these flights though. Everyone was cordial and respectful!"
Cons: "Don't have a conplaint."

Pros: "The food was good, the crew was very professional. The flight was on time. The seats were OK, but not conducive to sleeping."
Cons: "We weren't assigned seats together. It ultimately worked out OK because I was assigned to sit between a mother and her young child. They asked if they could have my middle seat so they could sit together - hurray! After that, the person in the aisle seat next to my husband was willing to swap her aisle seat for my new-found aisle seat. But on long flights, greater efforts should be made to seat couples together."

Pros: "Crew was great. All flights and connections on time and easy."
Cons: "Food - better to stick with basics in coach. Entertainment - too conservative boring."

Pros: "Flight was smooth, left on time and arrived early. All the staff were friendly, even humorous."

Pros: "We barely made our connecting flight."
Cons: "Flight delayed nearly an hour due to crew not showing up on time. Crew blocked aisle as passengers were boarding. Crew did not assist people who needed to make connecting flights by keeping other passengers from blocking the aisle after landing.. Airline did not seem to care about all the chaos caused by being so late."

Pros: "Great entertainment options, crew was great. Overall great flight."
Cons: "Boarding could have been faster."

Cons: "The check in process at JFK was a disaster. The kiosk check in machines were constantly malfunctioning, where to line up was unclear, and staff acted frustrated. After several failed attempts with the kiosks you have to wait in line to check in at the counter anyways. It would have saved almost an hour of my time to just go straight to the counter-- had I been allowed to. I wanted to check a bag which contained some fragile items. Several bottles of wine which I wrapped in bubble wrap and cushioned with my packed clothes. I requested a "Fragile" sticker to be put on my bag. I was told "We don't do that here". So I asked if they handle ALL bags with extreme care and I was laughed at and told to go on my way. When I got my bag at my destination-- the outside of my leather suitcase was sliced to the lining. There were scuff marks and torn leather. My wine had been completely shattered. Not just a crack in the bottle, but flattened completely. My clothes were stained, my bag ruined. I don't know if putting a fragile sticker on would have prevented this, but I don't understand why they just "don't do that". We are trusting our property to the airline when we check bags. I will never trust American Airlines ever again. They don't want to know if I have anything fragile, and they don't care when I tell them."

Cons: "It was not explained to us why my wife was pulled out of the line for questioning. They did not introduce themselves or anything."

Cons: "2 hours late. Kept moving the boarding time by 10min"

Pros: "No individual screens to watch. Get with the times for long flights !"

Pros: "The plane was new and nice looking"
Cons: "The flight was delayed. The crew was rude . Seats were not assigned until boarding NPILWL3B. Of course they give you the worst seats."

Pros: "Staff was fantastic."

Pros: "Like the drink & snack bar that is always open. Crew kept bathrooms maintained reasonably well."
Cons: "They were out of some of the drink and food options. The Vegetarian special meals were poor."

Pros: "Nice new seats"
Cons: "Crew came by once with drinks, never came back through with food/snacks. Never came through with water, as they usually do later in this flight. They spent most of the time chatting in the galley."

Pros: "The TV entertainment built in the seat."
Cons: "The baggage check in process, the 6 hour delay of my flight, wasting the majority of my day in the airport due to plane inspection. De-planing after boarding. The unorganized line/crowd during the boarding process."

Pros: "Wrong airline, sent me to wrong gate, almost missed the flight. If I wasn't lucky enough to need a wheelchair, I would probably still be in Phx! Not happy at all, to say the least. I had to grease the palms of about 7 different wheelchair pushers. A bad day all around."

Pros: "The flight to my destination was awesome. Helpful staff, great equipment, and plenty of room. I loved the technology in the seats."
Cons: "The return flight was not so good. I felt like an inconvenience and was not treated very well. At one point I was dismissed by an airline associate with a swish of her hand. Not exactly how anyone should be treated. There was a nice man that was a flight attendant, but other than that it was as if they were irritated people were even on the flight."

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!"
