Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The connection in Miami didn’t happen - the flights crew on the ORLANDO yo to Miami flight were rude and unhelpful - the plane sat in the tarmac waiting for a gate so flight arrived 15 minutes before planned departure - we inquired as to whether the plane would be held - response- despite having internet access was “ I don’t know “ you’ll have to check with gate agent - oh and by the way the flight attendant was virtually laying on the front seats - she as grossly obese and was so large as he walked the aisles she would hit passengers every time she turned around - we ran to the gate arriving 8 minutes before departure - gate was shut two gate agents were reading social media posts on their phones - we inquired about the flight - the gate agent said “ you missed the flight “ and then sat down and continued on her phone - the other one at least looked up and told us where to them go for assistance - eventually we were assisted and offferd 1 to wait u til the next day to go or to go through London - we took the London option. 1. I was informed by anAA employee they the connection is frequently missed due to similar problems. 2. Flight attendants and gate agents will bankrupt the airline with their horrible attitude. - they should be fired."
Pros: "Flight time, availability on short notice"
Cons: "Delayed, no communication, delayed at boarding, sat at arrival with no gate."
Cons: "Plane was too warm during flight. Aisle is narrow, seats are semi-hard. Lav needed attention (ran out of towels)."
Pros: "Just ok"
Cons: "No customs forms on board. Big inconveny"
Pros: "Starters, the flight was co coached with American airlines which is one of the worst airlines I've traveled so far. They lost my bad, and so far no one can help me locate it. Changed my flight without noticing me, made me run around the airport like crazy trying to catch the connecting flight just to find out that AA airlines already changed my itinerary."
Cons: "Everything. Poor service, rude flight attendants, unhelpful staff."
Pros: "Gate agents were timely."
Cons: "There was not a wheelchair at the arrival as previously agreed with American. No food on board - just drinks. Boarding took forever."
Pros: "Friendly crews"
Pros: "Frequent updates on lightning in the area ( causing delays). Full service on board while we were wIting for weather to clear. Very good i flight service."
Cons: "Just the weather — so nothing anyone can control"
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment so the rating there doesn't mean anything. Flight was delayed 1 hour due to a mechanical issue. Part of the delay included AA trying to get the flight crew to show up at the gate. The flight was oversold so there was a long list of standbys which added to the crowd waiting at the gate."
Pros: "The service provided was excellent. The food was as good as airline food goes. The entertainment options were excellent."
Cons: "Coach seats are a very cramped!"
Pros: "The trip was fast and efficient. The crew was very friendly and we had no issues."
Pros: "Just a normal flight in a cramped airplane"
Cons: "Just a normal flight in a cramped airplane, BUT almost 4 hours late, entailing a hotel stay."
Pros: "Roomy leg room"
Cons: "Plane to start,delay loading,dlaying taking off.almost hour late arriving."
Cons: "Seats are small and not ergonomic"
Cons: "They did not have any customs and immigration forms on the plane so everyone had to pick them up as we got off the plane and fill them out before proceeding to the customs area. It was very inconvenient for all passengers since there was not a good area to fiill out the forms and it slowed everyone down. First time I can ever recall the airlines not having the forms available before we landed"
Pros: "The attendants were friendly and approachable, it was a smooth trip."
Cons: "Comfort is ok."
Pros: "The entertainment factor of people with huge bags being told they have to check them at the gate!"
Cons: "Middle seats!"
Pros: "Super smooth flight that arrived on time. Nice crew."
Cons: "Why is coffee such an exorbitant request?"
Pros: "Food and Entertainment were up to par."
Cons: "There were two (2) obnoxious and drunk Irishmen directly behind us who kept pushing our seats, screaming obscenities for at least 5 hours while playing poker. The flight crew continued to serve them beers and did nothing to shut them them up. If I was not so content on getting to my destination, I would have knocked them out on the plane!"
Cons: "No entertainment in Business/First and no USB plugs or outlets. Only difference between Business and coach is the size of the seats. The rest was the same. I expected more service, food of some sort and entertainment or connectivity. I will probably avoid flying American if I can help it unless I see that they have updated things."
Pros: "No drama- always great flying from Long Beach"
Cons: "Really wish that there were power adaptors. Landed with a dead battery."
Pros: "There was a female flight attendant who was extremely rude and coarse with everyone on the flight. It was painful to watch and annoying to experience. I will pass on BA in the future. People who dislike other people should not be placed in customer service roles."
Pros: "Customer service"
Pros: "Nice seats, friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "Boarding groups are not clearly announced-and with the threat of checked baggage this makes people angry and spiteful to other passengers. They forgot to bring the immigration forms onboard, only had the customs. They didn't give us pens/pencils to fill out the customs form. This made offboarding confusing and messy. What entertainment? No screens."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding numbers"
Cons: "Late late cancelled chaos in reassignment late late One agent threw up hands said I'm done and left with long line of passengers not yet reassigned Person behind me asked why didn't we take Delta?"
Cons: "very crowded waiting area, too little leg room, horrible dinner"
Pros: "On time and no lost bags"
Cons: "Tiny overhead bin"
Pros: "Quick boarding and taxi. On and off the flight seemlessly."
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment and no electric outlet on the flight. Very basic airline."
Cons: "There was no entertainment option available in the plane we flew in."
Pros: "Everything. In flight entertainment was great and service as shops."
Cons: "No issues."
Pros: "Small snack and drink included. Free checked bags."
Cons: "Very few drink choices. Flight was cancelled mid-air, so we were returned from the air above Cusco to the Lima airport where there were no other flights departing that evening and no compensation for the inconvencience (no hostel voucher, no upgraded tickets on our next flight, etc). Many people ended up missing their long-planned trip to Machu Picchu as the earliest Avianca could get anyone to Cusco was 11:00 the following morning. The staff was unhelpful, and the lines were incredibly long (about 3 hours). Funnily enough, we were supposed to be on an earlier flight, but due to the length of their check in line, we waited over a half hour in line and when we arrived at the desk 56 minutes before our flight, we were unable to check in (since check in stops an hour before the flight). Truly ridiculous. I will definitely think twice before ever booking an Avianca flight in the future."
Pros: "Seat were larger and comfortable"
Cons: "AB 320-200 flight for +5 hours and no entertainment. Nothing on the flight. Could not pre-board on line, so instead of a zone 2 loading sequence we got zone 4. as a person who flies to Europe 4-5 times a year I do not enjoy getting on a plane in the Zone 4-5 sequencing."
Cons: "Lost my luggage. Very difficult to get information and long process to give my info on where I was staying. Was told it was on the next flight and should be arriving by 1-2:00pm depending who you talked to. I was told they don't start delivering lost luggage until 5:00pm. At 6:00pm I call for an update. No update available other than its on it's way. I called again at 8:00pm, 9:00pm 10:30pm & 11:15pm. Still no update was given. At around 12:30pm AFTER I WENT TO SLEEP, someone come to my hotel room to drop off my luggage. I had an important meeting for early the following morning and if my bag did not arrive, I had no business clothes for the meeting. I could have bought some new cloths but since I was TOLD my cloths would be arriving by 1-2:00pm and be delivered by early evening, I thought that not necessary. I believe I was told that so BA"
Cons: "crowded, tight even in better seat, no wifi entertainment"
Pros: "Pleasant staff, clean passenger lounge and plane cabin"
Cons: "Wish standard seating allowed for more width, better way to avoid reclined seat in front"
Pros: "No food served. Late take off. Seats cramped. Forced to carry on bags, then asked to check for free, if they don't fit. That forces everyone to fight to get on the plane, to get the best place for their luggage. Why not remove the $25 fee on the checking the first bag?"
Pros: "Very friendly staff"
Pros: "I fainted on my flight and everyone was really nice and helpful to make sure I was okay."
Pros: "Good entertainment choices, boarding in both the front and rear of the plane was great - it's common sense to board both when available or to at least board the rear of the plane first."
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "JoMarie was very helpful at LGB. And we eventually arrived at our destination."
Cons: "This was a horrible travel experience, the worst I have ever known. My uncle had died, so I had to search for the soonest and most economical flight in order to attend the funeral. Traveling with me was my aunt (his ex wife) and my cousin (his only daughter). Our initial flight was delayed 'due to mechanical issues' and they said we weren't going to make our connection in Phoenix. So they had to reroute the whole trip, which took about half an hour because all of the flights were full. So instead of flying from LGB - PHX - CLT - CAE and arriving Saturday night, we ended up departing from LAX (which we specifically were trying to avoid) almost 9 hours later. From there to DEN - CLT - GSP arriving Sunday morning. Because of this I had to contact the hotel and let them know that we weren't going to check-in until the next day, but I still ended up having to pay for Saturday night. Then, I had to cancel the rental car and make a new reservation to pick it up at GSP and return at CAE since the hotel was close to CAE, plus the return flight was through CAE. Also, wifi was an additional cost (which we didn't use because of this), the snacks were pitiful, and the seats were very narrow and uncomfortable. I have flown with JetBlue in the past, but on this occasion, last minute flights to South Carolina were prohibitively expensive. That being said, if I had known how bad the experience with American was going to be, I would have gladly paid literally double the price for the JetBlue tickets. And in the future, I will be flying exclusively with JetBlue no matter what the cost."
Cons: "This flight was added as they cancelled my flight directly to London then they dropped this flight and had just Phoenix to Lindon! It took many calls, one with over an hour wait, where were told different stories and expectations. I did not receive an actual ticket until the very morning if this flight!! It was very stressful!"
Pros: "Crew and boarding was great."
Cons: "Three trips around complex on train because of gate changes. Could have spent a short while eating, relaxing, instead of frantically thinking I was going to be late and miss my flight."
Cons: "flight has been cancelled, airline staff gave me hotel vouchers which the hotel would NOT honor, I went back and forth twice because those two hotels would not accomodate american airline passenger vouchers, I end up calling a friend to pick up at the airport she has to drive for an hour just to pick me up, I regret buying a ticket in american airline"
