I am petite and felt very crowded in my economy seat. For others of middle to larger size, it must be dangerous to seat in such quarters.
The seats are angled in upper class a bit uncomfortable and the Tv screen could be larger.
Seats are generous with good pillows in premium E Aircraft new and spotless
Virgin Atlantic should not be allowed to run codeshares without WestJet if neither company can provide check in or boarding passes - I was told I had to recheck my bags on a connecting flight which due to delays of the first one meant I had to abandon my bags at my first leg City to ensure I was able to run to get my flight as I only had 30 mins to make boarding. This means I landed in my destination without my luggage and am likely to never get it back. I will not fly on Virgin Atlantic again.
Heathrow Airport refused to let us through security on time and we were not permitted to board the flight.
Always a good flight on Virgin
Crew could be more attentive
Using a different airline instead of Virgin or delta
The Delta plane was super uncomfortable and the food was terrible.
Booked AVML meals in Premium Economy. The check in agent reconfirmed this. Also she said this was a standard offering in the route. Turns out they didn’t have AVML in a 10+ hour flight. Unacceptable
No amenity kits and meals weren’t as good as before. Other airlines now have a full meal son o reason why Virgin Atlantic can’t. Going to stick to BA.
DELTA didn't accommodate for me being a celiac. Despite my request and lengthy online chats. Wait times to talk to someone varied between 2 1/2 and 6 1/2 hrs. Terrible service.
Pros: "The crew was so kind and amazing. They definitely made our flight great!"
Cons: "The entertainment wasn’t working for most of the flight. We only got about an hour and a half of entertainment"
Cons: "We are a little hard of hearing. It was hard to hear the attendant when giving directions over the intercom. The speech was garbled and directions spoken too fast. I am not referring to the safety speech. Recommend slowing down so that we have more time to process what was spoken."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. The meals are good, nice variety. Hot food is hot."
Cons: "Seats are not the most comfortable and sometimes the screen on the entertainment tv doesn't work that easily."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Comfort. Seats were very uncomfortable with absolutely NO leg room. I fly a lot and this was one of the WORST leg room experiences I had."
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic is the best airline I’ve ever flown on internationally. The service is wonderful, from check in to inflight service. Everything went as planned. The food and drinks on board are free and they are an abundance of snacks, much more than we dreamed. The flight attendants are excellent"
Cons: "No. Keep up the good work!"
Pros: "Excellent airline"
Cons: "The business seats could have been wider. I have sat on business class other airlines and the seat was a bit wider but overall still great experience"
Cons: "We were bussed to the plane, there were long dark hairs on my pillow, and they are generous with snacks at close intervals, but the food could be much better. The ideas are cute, but the actual food is pretty basic, which is disappointing for Virgin, who I hold in high regard. Or did."
Pros: "Comfy, nice crew, attentive."
Pros: "crew / cabin staff always seem very friendly and genuine and a willingness to help"
Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"
Pros: "Great attentive service, good food and in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"
Pros: "I loved the in flight entertainment, and there was always so many snacks and drinks available for free!"
Cons: "For boarding, we had to walk a rather far distance due to construction."
Pros: "Staff. Very couteous.polite. friendly."
Cons: "Good.entertainment choices."
Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"
Cons: "Bed was incredibly uncomfortable in first class. It was like sleeping on the floor. People talking loudly in the bar late into the night, which made it even harder to sleep. Didn’t sleep a wink on this 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Great, friendly, professional crew, clean comfortable plane. Loved that full dinner and baggage and wine was included in an economy class overnight from DC to London as well as breakfast. Best flight in a long time, will definitely fly again."
Cons: "the tv screen's touch screen capabilities could use an upgrade, it was a hassle to navigate, not very sensitive to touch."
Cons: "Older media entertainment screen with hard to use touch interface."
Pros: "Good Service. Great attitude of flight attendants..early arrival. smooth flight."
Cons: "despite purchasing 'extra legroom' seats, it was still very, very crowded and tight."
Cons: "Virgin Atlantic continues to give great service. Their lounges are way above all other airline lounges. It is difficult to get well prepared and fresh fish in lounges, but Virgin Atlantic knows how to do it."
Pros: "Great crew, easy boarding, comfortable enough flight"
Cons: "Could have used a charger for electronics, especially because we were expected to use our own device for entertainment. Didn't order food, but didn't look digestible"
Pros: "The flight crew from the mel to lax route were excellent. One was especially attentive to my 2 toddlers and gave me a bit of a break, something that has NEVER happened in over 40 flights traveling with children."
Cons: "I think something was broken in our section (mel to lax) as it was uncomfortably hot and the flight crew tried to get it cooler but could not. I’ve never experienced a flight that was too hot, usually the opposite. It was stifling."
Pros: "Even it was a 12-13hrs flight, I had been my best flight ever in a long flight. Virgin really exeeced my expectations."
Pros: "No one would update that the flight was delayed. They would not even communicate as to why delayed and would not put us in a different flight. Absolutely no customer service. Disappointed and would not fly jet airways again . I missed my conference lecture today as I was late."
Cons: "No communication, nor will they tell you why it's late . Nor will they move you to another flight even wen requested"
Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly and attentive. Flight was on time and we got to Atlanta early"
Cons: "Could do with more legroom. Food not the greatest"
Cons: "During my flight from LAX to LHR I requested (pre-booked) a special meal (Asian Vegetarian). During the flight I was told there was no such request in their records and therefore I had to stay hungry for the entire duration of the flight. During my return flight from LHR to LAX the in flight entertainment system for my seat was not functional. I requested it to be reset several times and in spite of the hostess resetting it several times, it did not function. I had to stay without an entertainment system during the entire flight. This was my first time travel with Virgin Atlantic. I may never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "first time I flew VirginAtlantic. Heard so many good things about it. It fact even our Uber driver was praising the airline on our way to the airport. But once onboard: - poor food (I mean 'survival kit' style) - entertainment station was not working - games feel like 20 years old - design (heavy red) now looks dated and suffocating - hostesses are more focused on their hairstyle than their customers"
Cons: "Back to Air France next time!"
Pros: "Food, crew and overall experience was good"
Cons: "Got assigned seats all the way in the back. They were comfortable but would have preferred better seats."
Pros: "Purchased an extra 3" of leg room, which helped tremendously being that my husband & I are both tall. Flight attendants were friendly, helpful & attentative. There were plenty of beverages offered. The food service was adequate. So many options on the media screens on the back of the seats. USB ports were provided on the back of every seat as well."
Pros: "the food was very good and they hd a good list of selections of movies."
Cons: "the crew was very dry. they did not seem too happy."
Pros: "Dinner was fantastic! Excellent meal. Flight crew were terrific as well."
Cons: "Dislike the recent removal of onboard snacks. It's a very long flight. Nuts or chips or cheese and crackers would be very helpful. Had no idea this service was discontinued until way into the flight. Not sure why it was stopped. Btw I don't believe this was a Virgin Atlantic flight, I believe it was Virgin AUSTRALIA. Think you have names backwards on survey."
Pros: "The people at Check-in were fantastic - found out you have to check-in more than an hour before flight. They close an hour before to taking bags for international flights. Although right at an hour was late, they reopened for us."
Cons: "Customer service was horrible - they were so rude on the plane Food was done by the time it was our turn I got food poising off of the breakfast horrible"
Pros: "First off,the staff is awesome. From the check in people to the flight attendants .... The entertainment was up to date and the safety video was awesome.. Great conditions for economy class.good leg room...I give them a 5 star rating ... I only wish they would do more flights to other countries overseas ..."
Cons: "I can't think of anything I didn't like"
Cons: "My video monitor didn't work so I couldn't watch movies, asked the crew twice to help and they never did. Then to top off a terrible 10 hour flight with no entertainment, my bag never made it. Worst experience ever"
Pros: "It was a great experince we enjoy the flight other than the delay on the luggage"
Cons: "one of my luggage was lost and delayed for 2hrs. We waited at the Airport for the luggage to arrive."
Pros: "Due to earlier late connecting flight into LAX, I assume, my bags didn't make it with me, and arrived two days late. But your man Fred from PNG Air was right there in POM Jackson's airport to take my information and somehow two days later I did receive the bags! Thanks! The flight itselfe was fine in every other way."
Cons: "Maybe when I checked in for the last two flights if your check-in agents could've told me more clearly about where in the system my bags were, it would've been less of a surprise to find out in POM that they were not with me. I did ask, but got answers like 'we'll try to transfer them' or 'your bags are in the system', which were not too informative, but maybe as complete as those workers could ascertain, I don't know. I would've liked to be able to check in on line in advance for this and other flights on this trip, if you ever decide to open up that facility (without a charge), it would be appreciated."
Our trip was Lisbon-Frankfurt- Bangalore. When we reached Lisbon Check in there was not anybody at the Lufthansa counter. There was one and a half-hour delay before the aircraft left Frankfurt. The less said about the food the better. I had an Eco Saver ticket. Does it mean that beggars cannot be choosers' type of attitude to passengers is the order of the day?
I was traveling with a young child and the flight attendants were rude and unhelpful when simple requests were made like an early cracker or cookie to help distract him while everyone else was boarding. Also, my wife received dirty looks from an attendant when she asked if she could get by while holding our crying infant. They made us feel like a burden instead of a paying customer. The food was really sub par, especially the breakfast sandwich; cold, soggy veggie sandwich with no flavor (zero seasoning or vinegar or oil) and as mentioned the bread was cold and soggy wet. Also, there seemed to be something wrong with one of the bathroom’s ventilation, the smell was terrible throughout the entire flight. In the past Lufthansa had a good reputation for customer service, they are actively destroying it with how they currently treat passengers. If our return flight is as bad we will never fly Lufthansa again.
Short but smooth flight. Crew was very friendly
The flight was delayed and we were stranded at Dulles airport for 2 days (48 hours) as United Airlines cancelled the flights!
The flight was on a very small plane for a transatlantic flight. It was more suitable for a mid-distance domestic flight. The plane was also quite old and its entertainment systems repeatedly froze and shut down. Finally, the airline charged for most food and drinks--on an international flight. I will avoid Lufthansa and its partner, United, in the future. Also, the airports are a disastrous mess, with long lines and huge numbers of flights delayed (although this is beyond the airline's control). Both my flights were delayed substantially.
My flight was cancelled and Air cañada said they didn’t even have that flight number or my name in their computer. Does this mean Kayak somehow messed up with the letters/ number sequence? No one would help me at the airport. Lufthansa said it was Air cañadas fault and I had gotten two messages from Kayak, one was at 6 am(I had already called a ride so I was going an hour earlier ) then after 2 hours at airport I get my message from Kayak(Ricky) saying sorry your flight is cancelled? Then, like I say, no one would even put me on standby for another flight as my numbers you gave me did not match. Can you please get me on a flight home? No later than Monday, please? I am out of money
Maybe offer water in between meals
No issues boarding or on flight
On my way from Denver to Munich the flight was delayed. The pilot himself said he couldn't explain the reason for the 1 hour delay. The delay resulted in almost everyone on the flight missing their connections, including me and my husband. No effort was made to help passengers with tight connections to get off the plane and to their gates faster. After an international flight, the last thing you want is an 8-hour layover where you've no choice but to remain awake and exhausted for an unhealthy amount of time. As a pitiful expression of apology, Lufthansa gave us a 10 euro voucher to use in the Munich airport--not even enough for a full, hot meal. Not to mention that checking in for both my flight to and from my destination city was very stressful because of an abundance of travelers and a clear understaffing on the airline's side. Even though I came two hours early to check in for my return flight, I only had ten minutes at the gate before it was boarded. The whole experience was rushed and stressful and inefficient. The worst part, though, was that one of my checked bags was returned to me with my clothes sticking out of it and some speciality cheese I bought entirely missing. I have also found it really difficult to get in touch with the Lufthansa customer service. They claim in emails with my flight information that I especially requested that my reservation number be withheld from me (I never requested this). The loss of this number has made it nearly impossible for me to register complaints without calling the airline and wasting hours of time. I would greatly reconsider ever booking with this airline again.
OMG! The 5/21/2022 flight was canceled after we were on board over 3 hours! NO AIR CANADA rep to help! No Air Canada gate to check in with. It was total chaos at the Lisbon airport. Trying to get out today, 5/22/2022, the Air Canada agent said we. needed a new Covid test, only to find out AFTER we paid 20EU, that it was NOT needed. They were not educated on the rules, even though they knew they were checking in people from the canceled flight. Totally UNACCEPTABLE! I will never fly Air Canada again, operated. Y Lufthansa. I plan to post on Facebook and Twitter how bad this was.
Decent flight, no concerns
No food except a piece of chocolate and a small bottle of water. It’s a 200€ flight.
The lady Lo was worried about which useless mask are children were wearing. We wore these cloth masks on one lufthansa flight and through two airports with zero trouble for the scientifically useless masks we wear for show conformity to power hungry people , dhe demanded we change to the so called medical masks. really, put her on a domestic flight or something.
I expected a better flight. The food was very poor. The aircraft was too warm
Pros: "In general, everything was ok aboard the plane."
Cons: "The plane was supposed to leave Lisbon at 5:00 a.m. but because of computer problem it left at 5:50, a delay that caused everyone to scramble to get to their connecting flight or even miss it."
Cons: "Lufthansa not taking any responsibility for allowing connection time to be so short. Everyone on the fight from London missed their connections!"
Cons: "Better entertainment"
Pros: "The seat was good, and the crew was great."
Cons: "Boarding at the gate, and not having to take the bus."
Pros: "Really cheerful and friendly crew."
Cons: "They changed my seat just before boarding. Front lavatories are not usable by passengers behind the curtain."
Cons: "Traveled business class and the big perk was nobody in the middle seat. My seat was same size and uncomfortable as economy seats. The seating chart when I chose seats showed only 2 seats on each side. However there were 3 regular seats on each side, just like economy. Not a nice surprise."
Pros: "the flight got me where I needed to go"
Cons: "no boarding zones. boarding was a free for all."
Pros: "Nice to have breakfast on board"
Cons: "Arrival was a little tardy"
Cons: "Food need be much better"
Pros: "The crew were super friendly. There was plenty of space and I slept for a few hours"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that the United flight I came in on was over a MILE of corridors away from the outgoing flight."
Pros: "Very friendly and professional crew"
Cons: "Outdated entertainment system on the plane"
Pros: "- Excellent service, food and entertainment. - Pilot compensated for the delayed take off"
Cons: "- The take off was delayed and we stayed in the plane for over 1 hour - When we landed we waited in the plane for over 40 min until we got to the gate"
Pros: "Individual screens for all seats with a varied selection of entertainment options. Plenty of room under the seat for my carry-on. (It helped that no one was in the seat next to me.) Beverages were offered frequently. Smooth flight, smooth landing."
Pros: "It was exciting to fly on a gigantic plane as the Jumbo"
Cons: "Not to many options of food. Dinner wasn't dinner. It was a snack."
Pros: "great flight attendants - very friendly and attentive"
Cons: "The landing was extremely turbulent - an announcement from the pilot would have been nice."
Pros: "Very friendly staff and food was delicious."
Cons: "I had to run from Terninal A to Z to make this flight since our first flight was delayed arriving due to weather. As a result, my luggage didn't make it to my destination."
Pros: "The on board crew worked hard to make up for the 2 hour delay. I was happy to be fed in the right hour flight, but the food was not very good. I did not download the app for inflight entertainment so I can't rate it."
Cons: "The plane departure was delayed and the passengers were left wondering about the flight. There was no announcement to explain until an hour after the departure time. All monitors showed original departure."
Cons: "AS ALWAYS, LEG ROOM IS an issue on international flights. Screaming children kicking my seat the whole trip makes for an uncomfortable ride. Movies were slow to load and cut off multiple times for no reason."
Pros: "I think this airline is a very good airline, but this flight was shorter so it didn't have all of the perks of the longer ones that it usually has."
Cons: "In Lisbon we had to be bused out to the airplane to board, so it was a long process."
Cons: "Flight delayed by about an hour"
Pros: "Economy seats are not comfortable. The seat cushions are worn out and do not provide good support for long flights."
Cons: "The service provided by the crew was okay but their attitudes were horrible. It seems as though they did not want to work."
Pros: "Cabin is not very private feeling, plus you have to climb over people. Maybe slightly better than Air France's offering on the A380. Service and food was good."
Cons: "N/A because we missed the flight."
Pros: "Short flight Ease of checking in Meal provided"
Cons: "Time of flight changed by two hours earlier w/o being notified No entertainment Flight delayed due to passenger"
Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "Boarding process is a bit chaotic since they dont go by group, but by class. Seats in Business class are no different than economy."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight."
Pros: "This was my first international flight, and also first on Lufthansa, and I was thoroughly impressed. We traveled with another couple who've flown internationally multiple times, but this was their first Lufthansa flight as well, and they said it's the best they'd had. The crew were all excellent, friendly, and accommodating. There was plenty of entertainment options, refreshments, and snacks. The food was very good-much better than I'd expected. I appreciated that there were pillows, blankets, and headphones readily available as well. I'll try to fly Lufthansa every chance I get when flying internationally."
Pros: "Check-in was quick, only 4 parties ahead of me even though I arrived at the airport only 60 minutes prior to departure. Cleared security quickly too. Aircraft new and clean. Breakfast, excellent omelet, and crew extremely attentive to our needs- offering 2 drinks instead of other airlines which just give one and makes you feel that is all you deserve."
Cons: "Couldn't have been better."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable and narrow seats. Pathetically sized leg rooms. ...And I am not a big person. Lufthansa has been my favorite airline for years but I am sad to see that with every new plane they get, the seats and leg rooms get smaller and smaller, ignoring the fact that 4 people have to sit there for 8 hours, elbows and legs touching with no wiggle room. Will not take Boeing 747-400 again."
Pros: "Crew attitude - so much better than on the indifferent and even hostile US carriers"
Pros: "Courteous flight crew"
Pros: "Flew Boing -747 in economy. Wireless internet was nice, but very slow. Food was good, crew was offering water and juice quite often during a flight. Right on schedule. Good price, but had to cough up $100 for a second piece of luggage."
Cons: "Strange selection of movies, outdated earphones, USB wasn't charging my phone."
Pros: "Short and Smooth Flight"
Boarding was slow. Zones 3,4and 5 are grouped together. If you are used to boarding by group number, it feels like a free for all.
Food and crew were amazing. Seat confer as well. I wish the plane was newer, looked a bit dated plus the entertainment screens were malfunctioning pretty often
Nice,elegant,smooth,team had a pride with their work. My Favorite Airline.
Flight to Florence delayed. All passengers took a bus to Pisa (1.5 hours away) to fly Pisa to Paris. We missed our connection and flew next day. All information regarding the delay online was incorrect ("system not yet updated") . So calling Air France was useless as they could not assist. Not all flight delays can be avoided but many improvements are needed throughout this process.
Pros: "The seats were much more comfortable then my last flight. The entertainment system was also updated from the 1980’s remote and cord ones on my flight from DC to Paris."
Cons: "There was no food between the two meals on an 8 hour flight. I had a flight attendant rudely tell me that there is nothing to offer until the next meal. No one reached out to me about the horrible flight and comments I made from the last flight."
Cons: "I may be wrong but these days, the staff curtsy and overall well coming approach is lacking! Just a smile and a few cheerful words can transform passengers’ mood greatly!! This becomes particularly important when one is traveling for > 9 hours back to back flights!! One can extra charge for it!!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Pros: "Fly was delayed.i was told my bag would go to end but it was not.instead of coming to the hotel 7pm i came 1am."
Cons: "Explain me to take the bag on time.it was almost left in the airport."

Cons: "They could have controlled screening babies better. They just let them scream....."
Cons: "The flight delayed for 2xhours from Paris to Cincinnati"
Pros: "great food, entertainment and seat comfort"
Pros: "Air France has the best crews! They really go the extra mile."
Cons: "My skis were lost on the way to Riga and had to be delivered 2 days later to Vilnius. That said, the situation was handled very professionally."
Pros: "Good food and service"
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: "Check in process was easy. The flight attendants are all very helpful and kind. We are playing was OK but it could’ve been cleaned a little better before we got on board."
Cons: "Check in process was easy. The flight attendants are all very helpful and kind."
Cons: "Not much legroom."
Pros: "Not much expected as it was a budget trip."
Cons: "Poor timing in between connections, barely made in time to my first connection being the last person to board"
Pros: "The only thing that I like about the flight was that it was easy to boarding"
Cons: "The food was not heat correctly it was cold and I felt that the crew rush to give out the food. The seats are terrible, if the person in front of you reclines you won’t be able to see the screen if your watching a movie and you will see the top of the persons head."
Pros: ". Budget airline with no legroom or extras"
Cons: "See above. Nothing specific to like."
Pros: "I like fly attendant who served us meal"
Cons: "I didn’t like that space between each seat is small"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and always gave the feeling that they want the customers to feel comfortable and enjoy the flight. One of the crew members even offered me to move to an emergency exit seat (without me asking to move) because I am tall. Amazing!"
Pros: "It was quick, very good space in premium economy. Good and friendly service. The food was better than expected"
Cons: "The crew did not announce the score of soccer cup semi final between Belgium and France"
Pros: "The flight had a delayed of 2 hours due a system issue, but the flight was comfortable, and the airplane was clean."
Cons: "I didn't like the check in, the personnel there were not so friendly and had discrepancies. We were a group of 6, and 2 of us were able to drop the bag in the check in. But the others were told that needed to wait 30 mins."
Pros: "Great hospitality. Champagne as apero, cognac as digestif. Excellent on board entertainment. Comfy pillow and blanket."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "We got socked with 40 Euro fees for our carry on plus personal item being 2 lbs over. The biggest problem is they were picking and choosing which bags they weighed. 10 people behind us and before us got in without incident. Plane wasn’t even half full so they were deliberately trying to make more $."
Pros: "Plus seat was good. On board crew was nice."
Cons: "Another Air France company, with their motto: We Don't Care. Ground staff was rude, no good food onboard and have to pay for it. Entertainment is your device, but you can't download the app to use it."
Pros: "The food, entertainment, and service. Waited for me after almost missing my flight."
Cons: "Its been a week. My trip has ended. I still do not have my bags. Terrible customer service."

Cons: "the food is terrible."
Pros: "All of the crew were friendly and the flight was on time."
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "The time of the flight was great as well as the arrival time and subsequent connections to Paris. Enjoyed the rather full line of in flight beverages!"
Cons: "Leaving late seemingly without reason from Paris - chaotic boarding line in Paris with difficult to hear PA. Seats were ok'ish but than again, it's a 45 minute flight. The sandwich was gross and I'm somewhat known as a person who eats everything!"
Pros: "Being able to have my meal at the airport before my flight so that I could sleep in comfort."
Pros: "Friendly crew and exit row had nice legroom."
Cons: "Ran out of the (already not sufficient) salty crackers and, as the flight had been delayed, we had a one packet of cracker 'lunch' at noon... the flight really should have had a sandwich or at least something slightly more substantial."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent. My husband and I flew economy and I saw the crew keep passengers well fed (several meals and snacks) and were attentive to everyone's needs and all done with a smile. I thought the hot towels for cleansing our hands before meals was a very nice touch!"
Pros: "Cheap aircraft, not even headsets"
Cons: "Dirty aircraft, I expect more when I pay a lot"
Pros: "Flight arrived safely."
Cons: "Air France offered no help rebooking missed connection at JFK due to delay of more than 2 hours in arrival."

Pros: "tool me safe from one airport to another"
Cons: "wait time, food"
Pros: "Other crew members were very polite to us, in particular a younger tall woman."
Cons: "2 crew members, one named Terri were quite rude and short with us. I even heard her say she was ready to get off the flight. She also asked everyone around me if they liked their flight but did not ask me. She basically threw my coffee condiments at me and dismissed my concerns about the food. I was unsure if the fruit was expired and she quickly dismissed my question without any real explanation."
Pros: "quick flight 10 min ahead schedule"
Pros: "Smooth. We will definitely fly AA again."
Pros: "Landed in one piece despite weather."
Cons: "WiFi was down"

Pros: "Worst flight crew in business class ....super lazy"
Pros: "Crew had great personalities"
Cons: "Late to leave and arrive"

Pros: "1) Puntuality in departing and arrival times 2) Very pleasant crew members"
Pros: "Nothing, okay the movie"
Cons: "Flight attendant in back rude from start to end for no reason."
Pros: "Checking in and boarding the plane went fast and smoothly. The crew was very kind and friendly."
Cons: "I wish American offered more vegan and wheat/ gluten free options, as well as herbal tea options. I was determined to sleep during this flight, but I was hoping this plane would have the TV behind the chair. I enjoy watching the live map as we’re flying."
Pros: "We were very well looked after by a group of male flight attendants. The plane was clean, calm, quiet and we had all we needed."
Cons: "There were no TVs for each passenger especially for a 3+ hour long flight which was disappointing."
Pros: "Three beer and three wine selection made the flight go by quicker. Food was better than expected based on pasta or shepherd's pie options."
Cons: "Full flight with uncomfortable seats, no tv/movies at each seat. Our AA four-hour flight after this was much nicer, with in flight entertainment. What?! I haven't flown on an international flight without entertainment at each seat in 10 years... And I have flown to over 40 countries since then."
Cons: "No airline has trans Atlantic flights without personal entertainment anymore. I expect it and am super disappointed when I don’t get my movies."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Thank you. I get to see my family."
Cons: "never made the flight. a day of misery thanks to poor communication within one world, AA rigidity, and chaotic long lines at FlightConnections, Heathrow."
Cons: "Our seats were overbooked , causing us to almost miss our international connection. The staff were somewhat rude, but did try to solicit volunteers to give up seats and eventually the 4 passengers in my party did fly. But it was a very stressful 1hour until the issue was settled!"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful"
Cons: "The new AA rule about not being able to bring any carry on. Next we won’t be able to get a coat or a purse on. They making it harder and harder to fly with them."
Cons: "I got tranafered to 4 different gates aand my flight was delayed for 3 hrs with no explaination and the staff didn't try to help"
Pros: "Leg room between seats"
Cons: "Temperature in the aircraft was extremely cold and when I asked the stewardess for a blanket one asked the other if there was a spare blanket and very bluntly answered no. Only toilet in economy class was cloughed up and was not functional therefore a very disgraceful situation, they sent me to the other toilet in 1st class area and there I notice several blankets on empty seats after I was told there weren’t any spare blankets."
Pros: "Good service, great entertainment."
Cons: "Small seats, older aircraft."
Cons: "Very disorganized. Why was I put on this terrible American Airlines plane? My headphone outlet was broken, the plane was very uncomfortable, the boarding was disorganized. I thought I paid for a British Airways flight?"

Pros: "unAnnounced gate change"
Cons: "Running in airport"
Pros: "Crew was fine and meal service was decent"
Cons: "Stood on the jetway for 30 minutes due to some issue with boarding. Aircraft was tiny, not enough bathrooms for such a long flight. Dirty bathrooms and long lines."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled"
Cons: "I was scheduled to leave Lisbon at 11:45 am however at 6am I received a call to say my flight was cancelled and I was booked on the British Airways flight the next day at 7:30 am. This after AA had turned my flight on the way out around on the way from Austin to Paris and we had to spend the night in Chicago."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Easy to transfer luggage from an international flight to a domestic flight. The crew was accommodating. It is such a short flight that there were only pretzels and water without ice served on this flight. There was no entertainment on this flight. Small, clean plane for a less that 1 hour flight."
Pros: "I liked the ease of the gate for the airplane."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. The airline did not offer a complimentary headphones, and failr sure the wifi was not even working. Also was not that big of a fan with the extra long layover. Was not a fan of the extra time in the holding pattern above Indianapolis, nor the extra time 150 feet from the gate after we landed."
Pros: "Crew was service oriented and friendly and food was good"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seating; ran out of water on an 8 hour flight, and no individualized entertainment"
Pros: "Nice people good plane ride -- no problems."
Pros: "Clean, quiet, nice staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Cons: "The gate the flight was originally on changed, however there was never an announcement made over the intercom advising of the change. When the gate I was waiting at finally showed the flight information to Toledo, I had to find what gate I my flight was now on and had fifteen minutes to make it to the correct gate. Had the original gate displayed the new information any later I would have missed my flight."
Pros: "Great announcements by lead flight attendant."
Pros: "Except for comments under what I didn't like. AA experience was O.K."

Cons: "Sat on the ground for an hour."
Cons: "The flight was incredibly delayed."
Cons: "Flight was very late. Boarding was not good!"
Pros: "Frequent food and wine was much appreciated. Flight attendants were great."
Cons: "On a 6-8 hour international flight, individual screens at every seat would be nice. We took what seemed like a domestic plane from Philadelphia to Europe."
Pros: "No complaints. Love American!"
We bought economy tickets, still over $900 each. As a customer you aren’t treated very well by a few of the AA staff. My wife and I were unable to sit together. We weren’t able to load connecting tickets to either of our phones. We then had to go to a AA desk to get them and then get back in line to connect. We’ve had some good experiences with AA in the past. This was not one of them.
Gate agent was rude, insulting and disrespectful.
The crew was very friendly and helpful. The meals were way better than normal airplane food
You are making plans you cannot execute or, have no intention on executing. EVERY flight was delayed by more than an hour. First flight took off 99 minutes late. I RAN through global entry, didn’t have any checked bags, ran to make my connection and? Connection was delayed by an hour and a half and the people at the gate were aggressively rude. I’ve flown American on and off for 35 years.NEVER AGAIN.
Very confusing!! Making the reservation through Kayak, I ended up with a very confusing itinerary. On my out-going flights I was given three different carriers/airlines - AA, Iberia and FinnAir, and I received email confirmations from two. It wasn’t until I went through the Chat (obviously talking to bots for some, maybe all of it!) that I was able to figure it out. The return was just as confusing. Again, was assigned two carriers - AA and BA. I was actually told BA, was my carrier. So I stood in line for 30 minutes to check it and then was told it was AA. So another 40 minutes in the AA line made me late to get to my flight. Kinda ridiculous!
Delayed by BA pilot error (aborted landing) then missed connection and BA gave us the run around about finding another flight for hours. Airport staff at LHR telling us to get online or call and online staff and phone staff telling us to talk to airport staff. Ridiculously inept service. Everyone just wanted to tell us to talk to someone else.
Movie listing not good. Food ok, not good for growing people, good if you need to control your food intake; nutritious but not enough… okay food The pressure to my ears is too much, that was my first time to experience like that… I’ve been flying every year , that’s the worst kind of ear pressure I ever experienced…. I even chew gums on the flight and at home…. I’m not 24 hours at home I still have it in my both ears, the tendency when you talk is loud and high pitch… my husband understands me.
All was good for the most part. The music selection was real poor. I tried to listen to country and the songs were like from a playlist and not current but new singers. The selection was VERY limited. The movies were limited too.
BA finally had an efficient boarding process regarding COVID testing documents etc. They checked these docs during baggage drop and check-in (yay!) and then made sure baggage was placed on the same airplane as the owner (yay again!) the flight staff was friendly and helpful as usual and the flight was basically on time this go-round (another yay!)
I transited through LHR on my way to and from Lisbon Portugal (Oct 27 & Nov 6). There were several challenges to add files and complete the Passenger Locator Form at home/hotel and at the airport counters. This presented further challenges to those without smart phones, charged devices or unable to access the internet. This was neither a user-friendly nor an intuitive process. Please consider sharing data with the airline(s) to facilitate this process and further simply the process for those in transit. Check in took almost 1.5 hours and a near-missed flight.
Better communication about boarding delays and gate assignment.
BA rescheduled the flight twice & then cancelled it altogether with no rebooking options.
Flight was canceled and no one notified us. We have to spend 3 hours to get a new flight. Nightmare

Cons: "No complimentary coffee or soft drinks! No entertainment!"
Pros: "My flight was delayed and rescheduled 3 to 4 times. Then once flight took off, There were no complementary snacks...not even water."

Pros: "Actually was British Airways and not another airline. Service was great."
Cons: "Closed the flight too early and didn't help rebook... cost me thousands of dollars. Lisbon airport was a mess and they didn't even wait 5 minutes after the official end of boarding. Set on the tarmac for 25 minutes, but didn't take passengers in the meantime. No humanity.... never using BA again."
Pros: "Comfort, friendly staff"
Cons: "Paying for food and drinks"
Pros: "Good enough room, and had personal screens to watch movies and TV"

Pros: "Good crew, nice and comfortable aircraft"
Cons: "1h delay Almost no food alternatives even if now is paid and expensive, no vegan options Boarding onto a crowded bus with babies and then stay trapped in there in front of the aircraft for a long time is not understandable."
Cons: "Because of a problem at the car rental place we were not able to check our bags until 50 minutes before the flight. British Airways would not take the bags and we missed our flights Neither webjet who had booked our flight or British Airways would help us figure out a new flight. We had to buy a whole new flight."
Pros: "personal movies on a long flight"
Cons: "Guy in front reclining his chair. Very difficult to eat your meal when this happens."
Cons: "I needed water to take my medication and they only offered water for purchase. No other complimentary beverages were offered for the 2 hour 10 minute flight. I then tried to purchase water and the machine rejected 3 times. My card worked perfectly on all flights and during my entire trip in Portugal. After assuring me if was probably their machine not my card, I was still not offered water."

Cons: "Nothing to note about the flight. One downside was parking at arrival on Heathrow outside the terminal and having to get a bus."
Cons: "Takes too long to go through security in Lisbon. Several passengers were left behind. Having to pay for even a glass of water is not acceptable. BA has gone from one of my favorites to just average."

Cons: "Delayed 19 hrs due to crew illness. We were given a hotel room but the promised meal vouchers did not come through and BA would not answer the phone calls of the hotel staff to verify meal money. Missed a whole day of our vacation as we could not reschedule our connection until 24 hrs late. After the long wait the first day to be told what was going on, with much anxiety, on the second day there was also a delay boarding. Although it was short, of course everyone was on edge. And BA did not tell us what was happening!!"
Pros: "older plane, so seats were like southwest's leather seats"
