Pros: "Crew and food"
Cons: "It was a pretty old flight and had no tv in front! Huge disappointment. Probably they thought ppl flying from Doha to Colombo were ok with a low quality flight with no entertainment."

Pros: "Cabin Crew was great, very professional and capable."

Pros: "My flight from Chicago to Doha was late to come in and there was a gate agent waiting for us and two other passengers with a sign when we got off the plane. He told us that our flight had already left but he would get us on the next one. We ended up getting seats on the next flight but then were also given the option to get a temporary visa and explore Doha for the night. We opted for the comped night which included a very nice hotel and $100 in meal vouchers. We absolutely LOVED Doha and the hotel and food was fantastic! I don't think I have ever received better service from an airline or a hotel. We ended up walking around Souq Waquif and the downtown until 1am (we are two young females!) with no issue and just used Uber to get to and from the hotel. Everything was so well laid out for us! No complaints whatsoever!"
Pros: "I truly love this Airlines. The crew is always friendly. The food is always above par for airplane food"
Pros: "I had high hopes flying Qatar Airways for the first time but I suppose they are bound to have the same uncomfortable planes as everyone else now."
Cons: "I was annoyed that I could not put my carry on items in the bin above my seat. I was in front of the bulkhead so there was no other place to store my items except the overhead bin and the flight attendant took the space in my bin for some baby items she thought she might need for another passenger. I had to store my personal items away from my seat."
Pros: "The Plane was good but not updated with new data"
Cons: "Time delays .. old movies... not a good service with food and beverage... no compensation for the waste of time... restrooms werent clean"
Cons: "The passenger sitting next to me was really sick due to flu. When i explained the situation and asked for masks to the attendant, you guys did not have even one. I was disappointed with that. I think the flight should have some for these kinds of situation so that other passengers can protect themselves. Thanks."
Pros: "The personnel are what makes the airline so special. Everyone of them was so nice and so attentive to our needs. Great experience overall."
Cons: "So the seats while comfy are not as nice as the seats now on the reframed United Polaris and Delta and Air France in their newer planes."
Cons: "Since I was sitting in the row starting a new section in the plane (row 26?), crew members walked in front of me throughout the whole flight. Sometimes if my legs were extended, they were stepping over me, so it just got annoying."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was very accommodating. The food is better than some other airlines. The entertainment provided had a lot of choices I had an 8 1/2 hour layover in Doha. They booked me a short stay in a hotel at no extra charge. This included a car and driver to and from the hotel. It was a nice hotel close to the airport."
Cons: "I was sitting in economy. I booked too late to get any type of upgrade for extra legroom. For Economy it was OK, but cramped and hard to get comfortable on a 13+ hour flight."
Pros: "Comfort and cleanliness."
Pros: "My family was happy with the service provided by Qatar airline."
Pros: "My family did not comfortable in English talking and air hostess helped them very good with Hindi language. Increased my mom confidence to travel through Qatar airlines without any problem. Appreciate staff on board and airline service, thanks."
Pros: "Extremely like Qatar airways Both ground services and in flight service are excellent"
Cons: "Nothing.every thing is fine"
Pros: "Great crews, excellent airplanes, wonderful in transit experince."
Cons: "In flight coach meals were average."
Pros: "Wonderful services"
Cons: "Nothing bad to say"
Pros: "The crew on the flight was excellent. They'll bring you pretty much anything reasonable you ask for. In flight entertainment options were many. I don't eat a lot of airline food, but the meals exceeded my expectations."
Cons: "I am quite tall (6'5"/1.92m), the in flight comfort was brutal. It'll take my knees a week or two to forget the constant jamming from the seat in front of me. Otherwise, on boarding was well organized, but very slow. Sound quality on provided headphones was very poor."
Pros: "The flight service was great. We had a slight delay on the way back to Doha from Heathrow but they made up for it by getting us through security faster so I didn't miss my flight to Tokyo. Overall the timing was excellent and I got home without having to fork out any extra money."
Cons: "Song selections"
Cons: "Entertainment. Not all films have subtitle"
Pros: "Alinda, the stewardess."
Cons: "Too long journey."
Pros: "It was nice service and hospitality"
Pros: "Punctual and clean with a friendly staff!"
Pros: "Boarding was crazy and confusing. Ground crew poor communication and rude"

Pros: "Free wine!"
Pros: "everything from the boarding and check-in process to in flight comfort."
Pros: "Seats were spacious and they fed us on the flight."
Cons: "In flight entertainment."
Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "No major complaints."
Pros: "Lufthansa will always be my choice airline. Their staff are nicely dressed, accommodating and well mannered."
Cons: "On this trip back to Dublin, our flight from Munich to Dublin was delayed for over two hours. It would be nice for Lufthansa to at least offer the passengers something to eat or drink while on board waiting for such a long time."
Pros: "The issue is not with Lufthansa but with the Berlin Airport. First of all, It is not clear that you have to do the checkinn at terminal B and then come back to the gate where you have to go pass security. This is when it gets even more complicated, the line is long and slow, there is only one security arch and xray machine, is took us almost an hour to go through."
Cons: "The issue is not with Lufthansa but with the Berlin Airport. First of all, It is not clear that you have to do the checkinn at terminal B and then come back to the gate where you have to go pass security. This is when it gets even more complicated, the line is long and slow, there is only one security arch and xray machine, is took us almost an hour to go through."
Pros: "Good seats and wonderful flight crew."
Cons: "flight was late and we missed our connection."
Pros: "The crew again was great. The cheese sandwich was also excellent. I wasn't expecting a sandwich on a 2 hour flight and this was a welcome surprise."
Cons: "Boarding took a long time, but that was a product of having to bus everyone out to the plane for boarding. They also crammed way too many people onto the bus. Would have been more efficient to load quickly and go as another bus was already waiting."
Pros: "It was a short flight."
Cons: "I was allergic to ingredients in the in-flight meal. There were no additional options left by the time food got to me. The crew was indifferent about my allergy and seemed offended when I returned the food uneaten."
Pros: "Great aircraft"
Cons: "Waiting for arrival gate"
Pros: "friendly service"
Cons: "no head support"
Cons: "Cramped seating :-0"
Pros: "Efficient boarding"
Cons: "Flight map tracking did not work"
Pros: "No food was served. requested vegetarian food never came thru"
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 price was fair and updated information on flights were sent to my phone."
Pros: "Nice to be on a full service airline for once"
Pros: "Great flight and a super smoth landing in strong southerly winds."
Cons: "This flight was canceled. I’m late to my destination. I don’t travel often and this was a bad experience. I’m very disappointed. I’m not a complainer"
Pros: "Easily the most comfortable I've ever been in TATL economy. Lufthansa's 747-8 is set up strangely: the main deck is arranged First - Business - Economy - Prem. Economy - Economy. This means that if you can book a seat in the forward economy mini-cabin, you get dedicated cabin crew, no other passengers walking through your space to get to the bathroom, plenty of bin space, and – best of all – a lot of aisle space to stretch your legs. Row 16 aisle seats are especially good, as the bulkhead between J and Y doesn't extend all the way, and therefore you can stretch your feet out. Food was actually excellent (for economy), hot and flavorful and generous, with snacks available mid-flight. Beverages also tops – gotta love Lufthansa for offering Campari (!) and more than one wine choice."
Cons: "Entertainment (music and movies at least) was up-to-date but not very interested. Boarding and transit security in Frankfurt was anxiety-inducing – between getting to the US departures area and additional screening, it took more than an hour from deplaning to getting in line. Boarding w/o group numbers was an exercise in patience. And the terminal wifi is so spotty!"
Cons: "* The gate was with bus, and not a direct terminal connection * There were no drawing sets for kids * The food was either overheated or somehow impacted - didn't look proper"
Cons: "Bought these tickets almost a year in advance. Never given the option to select seats. Both my husband and I were stuck in the middle seats or not together on each leg of our flight. Food was horrible on every leg. Husbands tv did not work. I am petite and seats too small even for me. never again will o give this airline my money."
Pros: "Staff was nicer on this flight verus the first flight."
Cons: "My tv didnt work. They tried to reset it twice. So 9 hours without entertainment sucks!"
Pros: "There was good in flight entertainment"
Cons: "The food was barely edible. I'm glad to have brought a snack in my bag."
Pros: "Service is outstanding in economy and puts US airlines to shame. Lufthansa is the best way to fly to Europe."
Cons: "Clearing passport control in Frankfurt is very slow. The setup is not very good for a world class airport. You need to give yourself at least an hour."
Pros: "Comfortable and big leg room"
Cons: "No in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Unfriendly crew"
Cons: "The kosher food was terrible!!!!"
Cons: "Because of mechanical errors in our point of origin (NJ, USA) we were unable arrive on time in Germany to make this connecting flight. Very very disappointed in United Airlines. Will never travel with them again."
Pros: "Friendly, polite, very helpful staff; comfortable ride"
Pros: "everything on time on the right place with the right numbers ... perfect ;)"
Cons: "seats on LH435 from ORD to MUC too small and tight"
Pros: "Nothing, really nothing"
Cons: "Really never had less room in a seat!!!"
Pros: "Flight was grest"
Cons: "Very relaxing and smooth flight"
Cons: "It was hit on the plane and no way to regulate airflow"
Pros: "Excellent plane overall. Was late on one connection but so were a lot of other airlines due to high winds."
Pros: "Lots of space."
Cons: "The food was just okay."
Cons: "I will not fly on Air Canada again...Eventhough this is listed as a Lufthansa flight there was nothing Lufthansa about it. Terrible food. Overall miserable"
Pros: "I missed my flight in FCO , Italy, while the Lufthansa staff at the checking desk calling and checking about my booking they told me I don't have a booking . I had all the booking doc and every thing they need on my hand and on my phone from the e-mail. but they kept telling me they don't see it in the system and kept me waiting in FCO airport in Italy for an hour and then they told me "now you can't board on this flight. it's departing in 5 min." I asked so what shall I do now did you solve the mystery ? They told me my booking is cancelled and I have to buy another ticket. When I asked why my booking cancelled and who cancelled it. They don't know. My blood pressure was raising. I felt like they were telling me go away we don't want you to flight with us. I wish I had an option to fly with another airline with in the next 3 hrs coz I had to fly with in that period of time. Otherwise all my plans on the other end was about to get messed up. Unfortunately it was only Lufthansa airline flying with in the next 3 hrs. So I was forced to buy another ticket and fly. My original ticket was a round trip from Oslo to room via Frankfurt stop over in Room and then go to Frankfurt stop over in Frankfurt and then back to Oslo. But they make me buy extra $400 ticket and it was non of my fault. I had a terrible expirance flying from Room, Italy (FCO) to Frankfurt they made me buy another ticket. Extra $400. I complained at the Lufthansa headquarter in Frankfurt airport after waiting for two hrs in line , they refunded me only $200.And they charged me €25 for processing the refund. It's ridiculous. The good service and name Lufthansa use to have is now becoming only a history."
Cons: "The flight crew was nice."
Pros: "The food and the entertainment were excellent, staff also worked very well, and the airplane appeared well cleaned and maintained"
Cons: "The economy seats are too close to each other to be comfortable for extended periods of time (back to front ways - side space is reasonable)."
Pros: "Coffee was excellent"
Pros: "Entertainment system very good ; crew very professional"
Cons: "Airline might have given warning of long long distance between connecting gates and need to undergo another security check. Also waiting area very cramped."
Pros: "The service was absolutely amazing! Even though I was sitting in economy, I was offered something to drink before take off and at least 5-10 times throughout the 9 hour flight. The food was really good for airplane food and it was a nice touch to have an actual plate and silverware. When you're traveling, those little touches make a big difference. The entertainment was wonderful - the screen on the back of the seat was really responsive and had a wide selection. I watched three movies and played several games."
Cons: "My only criticism was the boarding process seemed a bit disorganized. I guess I'm used to boarding by zones or numbers. This was just sort of a free for all. But if that's my only criticism, that says a lot about the flight!"
Pros: "Nothing, the anounced railway wagon wasn't availabel"
Cons: "I lost my luggage at Frankfurt Airport due to poor information policy of Lufthansa - so at first hand they didn´t inform Copa Airlines that there is no luggage check out at Stuttgart Railway Station any more for years now. In Stuttgart the lost-and-found office have changed since 2 weeks to an other company and they didn`t inform the headquarter in Ffm. about that, so that they rep gave me the wrong phone- and email-numbers. Finally I had to drive the next day to Stuttgart Airport to claim my lost luggage at Ffm Airport."
Pros: "It was a nice, efficient flight"
Cons: "Guy at exchange should have said - All Lufthansa connections this way that way if a gate change had iccurred one didn't have to go thru security again..."
Pros: "Seemed to have more overall room for a regional"
Cons: "This flight had a lactose free meal but not gluten free."
Cons: "Food unpleasant taste"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The food was below average even for airline food. One of the flight attendants was rude to one of the passengers even though the passenger was not doing anything out of normal."
Pros: "Very smooth, easy to book special meal. Helpful attendants"
Cons: "It was all godd-only wished I had direct all the way"
Pros: "Nice large plane that wasn't near capacity."
Cons: "Long delay with minimal compensation. Gave us a rebooked connection that we had near zero chance of making."
Pros: "Crew was very kind"
Cons: "Screens for entertainment were a bit fuzzy, food was just ok, leg and arm space was tight"
Cons: "Departed one hour late from Miami"
Cons: "Seating was not comfortable."
Pros: "Movie/TV selection good Crew good"
Cons: "Food so so Need more.leg room ways"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the food was alright. Good entertainment and comfy plane."
Cons: "We were late taking off due to the airport and plane not sharing passenger data, and then forced to delay exiting the plane and then forced to sit on a bus rather than enter the terminal."
Pros: "Food was OK, crew was nice. I loved having my own TV and access to movies, games, series, etc."
Cons: "What I really dod not enjoy is the seats. They are extremely small and tight. I literally was pressed between the two people sitting next to me. I didn't have space to even bend down to grab my bag.I could not sleep a wink and was extremely hot."
Pros: "Nice and polite flight attendants"
Cons: "Breakfast was very poor and bad."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Sprang for business class. Could not get assigned seats until 24 hours before takeoff unless I paid an extra $200 and therefore got the last 2 seats together. Check in was very slow. The agents disappeared for about 15 minutes. Business class lounge ran out of food but BA gave us vouchers to eat elsewhere in the terminal. Flight left about an 90 min late (seems like it is always late) so had to run through Heathrow to catch the connection. Boarding area was too small and chaotic. Seating in business class was ok for me as I am only 5''7" but would be poor for someone over 6 feet. The steak entree was brown through and through. Overall the experience was disappointing."
Cons: "Incredibly, when we went to the British Airways desk to check in they said they didn't have our tickets (!). They put us on standy-by even though we'd booked the tickets and paid in full seven months in advance. Once we eventually got on the plane, it blew a tire on the tarmac and took five (!) hours to fix. There was another short delay finding a gate once we landed in Heathrow, then they lost my luggage and I've yet to receive it. Far and away the worst flight I've ever taken. Avoid BA if you can."
Pros: "Food was great and the crew was friendly. Overall enjoyed the flight."
Cons: "The check in took way too long. Sat there for an hour to check in my luggage. I thought i might miss my flight but i was two minutes before takeoff."
Pros: "Everything is clockwise precision. All the passengers were well disciplined or rather made to be. Aircraft was very airworthy. The pilot was very experienced and nice soft landing at Mumbai in spite of inclement weather conditions"
Cons: "The food & drinks. Both offered we're mediocre stuff."
Pros: "the seats,leg space"
Cons: "crew should be more involved"
Cons: "Unfortunately, the passenger beside me a young man was over served by the flight attendant and became extremely inebriated so that when I tried to ignore him and sleep, he kept touching me, rubbing my arm and leg. The crew were aware of what was happening and tried to reprimand him. It made my flight extremely difficult and it was all because the flight attendant served him doubles of whiskey (which the passenger was drinking neat) on six occasions, two bottles of red wine and that does not include the doubles the passenger procured for himself from other attendants. In all the behaviour of this passenger made my flight a complete nightmare and it was totally unnecessary for him to be served this much alcohol."
Pros: "Flight attendants and pilot very nice and informative."
Cons: "Very small seats in economy for an overseas flight, making it extremely difficult to get comfortable enough to sleep."
Pros: "Pros..Communication was excellent, we knew our flight was delayed hours in advance so we could prepare, they rerouted our connection so we didn't have to worry about that on arrival, and the onboard crew was excellent and caring. They helped a family to sit together by asking for volunteers to move, and they helped me locate my daughter who had been delayed by a problem with gate check in. The flight was smooth and we all arrived safely."
Cons: "The seats in economy were extremely cramped, there was no legroom and I don't know how tall people could fit in there. There is no way a person could get out of his or her seat to go to the bathroom without making the others in the row stand up and get in the aisle and that's pretty uncomfortable to do on an overnight flight when people are sleeping."
Pros: "Grest staff"
Cons: "BA, as well as most airlines, treat their economy fliers with distain. The seat pitch is obscenely too little and possibly dangerous. Their thinking is obviously "make it so uncomfortable that all but the poorest customers will pay more for a modest upgrade'."
Pros: "Staff was friendly and helpful. Meals were decent for airline food. Blankets, headphones, and even a toothbrush were provided."
Cons: "Both flights were delayed departing which made for a long journey becoming even longer. Seating area fairly cramped in economy class (not too surprising I suppose). Rude Brit behind me kicking and pushing my chair because like 90% of the other passengers I reclined my chair on this overnight flight and he took that as a personal affront. Not the airlines fault I had the only jackass on the flight directly behind me, but impactful none the less."
Pros: "The staff and the comfort were stellar."
Cons: "The boarding process was a bit long"
Cons: "Felt cramped in the seats."
Pros: "Food was good"
Pros: "A long haul flight in coach can be interesting, but the BA staff, as always, were very cordial. Security was great...thorough."
Pros: "Everything related to the flight was very good."
Cons: "My wife lost her passport aboard the aircraft; it was not recovered. We do not feel that the BA staff did an adequate search. This caused us great difficulties with the immigration authorities at Heathrow."
Pros: "Not too much."
Cons: "No USB chargers or in seat power supply. Couldn't charge phone. Tiny screen with limited entertainment. Archaic system. No recognition of one world Sappire status. Bad food options, chicken or veg only. Very "grey" Englush Breakfast. Dinner food option not as announced. The entire experience was poor. Grumpy crew who seemed flustered and were not paying attention to service."
Pros: "The crew s oustanding. They were courteous, helpful, very professional and made the flying experience a pleasure for my family. With respect to the Miami ticket agents, there are 3 people I want to highlight for excellent service. Denise, who courteously accommodated our family and rescheduled our flight as needed, another young lady who checked us in. She was sensitive to our party of 5 and was extremely pleasant. The check in process was chaotic at best and she helped make it a pleasant experience. The person is Diane, the manager at the Miami airport. She helped bring order to a completely disorganized check in process and ended up personally escorting us through security toe sure that we made our flight on time. Diane is an excellent leader."
Cons: "The check in process was completely disorganized, due to a cancelled flight from Miami to Heathrow the night before. And there were 3 scheduled flights already that people were checking in for as well. There had to have been at least 600+ people in line to check in, plus those from the night before. The Miami airport doesn't have kiosks for passengers to easily check in and bag drop, which doesn't make sense in such a large and busy international airport. That would have made a huge difference in this case. Also, we paid for our seats to select them prior to 24 hours and we ended up not sitting together."
Pros: "I Like the check in process, the punctuality of the flight"
Cons: "The food was terrible, they kept me waiting for my strolley on LHR for over half an hour!"
Pros: "I especially liked our seats (we were in the exit row and had plenty of leg room); the crew, and the food."
Cons: "What we didn't like couldn't be helped: there were crying babies and a snorting gentleman."
Pros: "BA's customer service was excellent and they helped us out by getting on the next plane with minimal delay ... By 4 hours."
Cons: "I was told a 2 hour transit time would be sufficient but when we arrived in London, we had to go through several gates with long lines at Terminal 5. I was leary that this was achievable without the long lines but on this day, we couldn't even get past the first gate before they told us that we will miss our connecting flight."
Pros: "Crew and choice of movies were excellent"
Cons: "Loading sucked. They couldn't keep those that are not boarding yet out of the way for those in the back of the plane to board first. Made one comment to the crowd and then gave up."
Pros: "Hello I saw charged the ticket twice !!!! Thank you"
Pros: "First time on the huge Airbus. It was fantastic. Romy and comfortable"
Cons: "Reclining of seat back became a bit uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nice spacious seats"
Cons: "That you checked my carry-on"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and nice. The food was also nice. I had a gluten free meal and it was enjoyable."
Cons: "The plane itself was old there were no tvs on the seats so the "in flight entertainment" was awful. When you plugged headphones in there was an awful noise that prevented you from hearing anything from the movie/show. Considering this was a transatlantic flight, the plane should have been better. We were also delayed due to maintenance that needed to be done on the flight. Luckily London was my last stop so I was not late for anymore flights but a lot of people on the plane were. I was very disappointed and will be disappointed again if my return flight has the same issues."
Pros: "The staff were all very helpful and efficient."
Cons: "Everything about this flight was miserable. AVOID BRITISH AIRWAYS AT ALL COSTS!"
Pros: "On time, no crashes"
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable, hardly any room to breath"
Cons: "Seats were very cramped (as elsewhere) and I wish there were truly vegetarian options among the main options without having to order special meals. Otherwise good experience."
Pros: "The A380 from LA, was new and clean. Crew friendly and service efficient."
Cons: "Seems like each new airplane reduces space for passengers in economy. There are just so many seats you and squeeze in. I am not a tall person, and certainly not overweight, and I felt crammed in the seat. I feel sorry for people who are tall and big. They must have a terrible time. The older 767 from Heathrow to Athens was MUCH more spacious and comfortable. I can't afford business class and certainly not first class. Economy has been squeezed beyond logical levels. Good was so so. Not to my taste. The chicken with mashed potatoes was rubbery and mashed didn't even taste like potatoes. Other than that, trip was on time. So that helped."
Pros: "the window seats have no leg room. There is an entertainment box under every window seat so there is no room for your legs or small bag. I was in pain the last 7 hours of the flight due to leg cramps & spasms."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Pros: "We took off with an hour delay but we caught up so there were no delays in London. Smooth flight. The guy at check in was great, very helpful and pleasant (I forgot his name unfortunately)."
Cons: "-The crew was pretty unfriendly. They did not smile and one crew basically yelled at me becasue he did not hear my reply when he asked what I want for dinner so instead of asking politely again he started to yell at me "Chicken or pasta?'"- I think Allistair was his name. The other lady also came across rude to me when she said "You have to speak up becasue I cant hear you!"- sorry, English is not my first language but I think the polite way should have been "Sorry m'am I could not hear you, could you please spak up?" - entertainment needs better selection"
Pros: "The plane itself is big enough which makes the ride quite comfortable and less subject to turbulence."
Cons: "Seats do not recline much in economy but that is expected."
Pros: "Breakfast was good and a surprise. Short flight so did not watch any entertainment. Crew was nice."
Cons: "Checking in at main desk was chaos. Waited in line forever only to be overcharged for my second checked bag compared to their website rate. Inefficient people manning the desks. Boarding was just as chaotic. Crew acted new/disorganized. Seats extremely hard, very little padding. Old plane."
Pros: "The crew was kind."
Cons: "The cabin was way too cold and no blankets were provided due to COVID. No blankets I get, but the cabin temperature made 3 1/2 hours seem like 5."
Cons: "No more comments!"
Pros: "The crew was so wonderful!"
Cons: "better trained pilots first hard landing in Jamaica"
Pros: "Fast. Arrived early."
Cons: "More room."
Pros: "entertainment, seat space (main cabin extra)"
Cons: "meal service more suitable for daily flight (breakfast first and lunch last)"
Pros: "It was on time and efficient. Easy flight and I liked the announcements."
Cons: "Nothing everything was great!"
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "Gin availability"
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Can't fly American Airlines without a flight delay. Have to plan flight delays into my trips because every time I fly American there is a delay. Certainly encourages me to fly other airlines."
Cons: "Unable to connect to the new AA so-fi"
Pros: "Boarding was very quick and easy. There was plenty of room for everyone's cary on luggage. The movie selection was vast and encompassing."
Cons: "The seat was really uncomfortable even if reclined all the way. If the person in front of you is reclined, then you basically have to recline yourself to see the screen. Very little leg room."
Cons: "I tried to change my seat to an available window seat several times after online check in opened using the app and consistently received error messages so ended up stuck in a middle seat."
Pros: "Pretty standard flight"
Cons: "Inconvenient timing and overcrowded with obnoxious children sitting on laps. No attempts made to change their behavior by crew or parents."
Pros: "Good movie choices"
Cons: "Very long flight"
Pros: "upgraded to business, which made for a nice ride home."
Cons: "seat and monitor seemed to have minds of their own, but only caused a minor inconvenience I'm frustrated with AA's information on movies, which is questionable and unrealable. For example, the recently released film 'Coco' was listed as PG-13 and not included in the "Disney" category. "Justice League" was listed as R. There are several other examples of misinformation in their movie listings. For parents who use the ratings as one piece of information to guide their children, it would be nice to have correct information when making selections. this problem is not new; it's been this way for over a year now. I hoped that over time they would get it right, but alas, it remains inconsistent at best."
Pros: "Friendly welcoming stay"
Cons: "No dis likes"
Pros: "The flights were on time and the staff was very friendly."
Cons: "American continues to surprise through their lack of consideration and cheapness Prefer to have seat empty on the front rather than move passengers that are loyal frequent flyers. The most important point for American is you have to pay for everything including for flight status. No longer miles flew but how much you pay them"
Cons: "Seats smaller than before."
Cons: "The seats are much too small both width and length wise."
Cons: "The seats are terrible. The most uncomfortable flight I have ever taken. Awful all around."
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: "the minute you are on the air the flights where very good"
Cons: "this ticket that included the flight was operated by american airline and jet blue and was under Iberia name... actually there was no father to that flight! and i couldn't make any checkin on line and needed to carry my bag to my connection flight.. and i did buy one ticket ! that included the connections."
Pros: "Comfortable and wide seats in coach - as wide as or wider than my usual airline. Flight attendants were friendly and helpful. I had bad experiences with American in the past, but this one was surprisingly pleasant."
Cons: "No free entertainment or meals."
Pros: "Great at all."
Pros: "The pilot did a great job flying. Very smooth."
Cons: "The flight attendants were pretty mean and just overall dissatisfied. Apparently we had community water to share? Everyone gets water from the same bottle?? Too strange."
Pros: "A flight that actually had extra seats? I couldn't believe it. Plus the entertainment options made the 8 hour flight "fly" by (no pun intended)"
Cons: "We arrived 30 minutes early but then we waited 30 minutes for a gate."
Pros: "Everything was excellent"
Pros: "(1) The flight was overbooked and boarded late. (2) The crew and flight attendants flying to NY had more baggage space than the passengers. (3) The pilot and crew were excellent and I enjoyed my overall flight."
Cons: "Stop overbooking the plan. I don't mind paying more"
Pros: "One flight attendant was completely uninterested! Others were good despite the delay."
Cons: "One poor attitude flight attendant."
Pros: "My flight had a really tight connection at London Heathrow. Then my flight from Vienna arrived 10 minutes late which made it even worse. A very nice BA agent met me as I deplaned at London Heathrow and ran with me thru Terminal 3. Helped me clear security with a priority card and ran to my gate with 2 minutes to spare. The women was really nice and if it was not for her I am sure I would not have made my connection. I don't know if there is anyway to track her down and thank her but I would like to do so. The flight attendants were OK but not excessively helpful."
Cons: "Having to reclear security. I understand the necessity though. The touch screens for the inflight entertainment did not work well. Food was Mediocre at best."
Cons: "Missed my connection in London due to a computer malfunction that took over an hour to remedy. In getting to London, I was automatically rebooked, but with a flight that got me in 10 hours later than expected. I asked customer service about alternate flights, with or without connections, that might get me in earlier, but was given a quite curt, "that is not possible," and turned away. Even if that was the case, which seems unlikely given the multiple other flights arriving in Luxembourg from European airports earlier in the day, it was not particularly friendly."
Cons: "I believe the flight was delayed due to weather. This resulted In my seat being given away on my connecting flight."
Cons: " the "group system" boarding process arranges passengers in an aleatory way making the process totally chaotic. For instance last groups are the last ones to enter the aircraft and don't easily find space for the hand luggage. They have to accommodate bags under the front seat making the already uncomfortable trip more painful. Also this process may delay the departure time.  Food service is terrible. no options, specially for kids or people with food restrictions. Not even the payed ones offer healthy food alternatives.  No comfort at all for a flight that departs little before midnight and arrives at 7 am at its destination. They forgot about the pillows and blankets you find in other airlines.  at the end, when I collected my baggage I realized 1 wheel was missing from one of my suitcases. I informed the airline and 3 days later I receive an email saying that the airline is not responsible for damages that include wheels and other "baggage accessories" I did not rate the flight poor because at least it manages to arrive to its final destination..."
Pros: "My wife and I have flown on many airlines. This was one of our best experiences. All the staff that we came across were ridiculously helpful and very understanding. Despite us getting held up in traffic and running quite late, staff members of both American Airlines and Qantas were extremely calming and reassuring the whole way through. Flight was extremely comfortable and entertainment was fantastic. Made the trip really easy."
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest. Barely touched the breakfast and dinner meal. Supposedly the flight had free wifi, but I honestly couldn't eat that to work for me."
Pros: "Crew was extremely nice. I dont' like to fly and the take off was so rough, I spent the whole flight in the bathroom. The flight attendant gave me ginger ale and pretzels and let me sit in the back so i didn't have to go back and forth. The other flight attendant had aroma therapy that helped a lot but i was just too freaked out. Those two made the flight as nice as possible."
Cons: "Very rough take off but that is mother nature not the air line :) Took off almost an hour late. LAX scheduled too many flight to land at the same time, Had to wait on the runway in Reno."
Pros: "Great food, comfort, and smiles :)"
Cons: "Paid a premium for extra leg room at bulkhead only to have a continuous stream of adults and small children passing through kicking or tripping over our feet."
Pros: "The price was ok"
Cons: "The flight was over booked and my father and I couldn't sit together. The plane was loud and no tvs on the plane. Will stick with southwest"
Pros: "The only thing to like was arriving on time."
Cons: "Paid extra for priority boarding, that was a mistake. We got boarding group one but by the time all the families with kids, first class, and frequent flyers went ahead of us they called all remaining groups together. Forget about overhead space left over, we had to gate check carry on. Seats were very uncomfortable, no room under the seat because of a big metal box for power outlets. No leg room, sat shoulders and thighs touching with neighbors. No meal service, just drinks and pretzels, luckily we ate before departure. Never again!"
Pros: "Everyghing was smooth and on time"
Cons: "Nothing at all"
Pros: "It left on time and we got there in time."
Cons: "Everything, I flew with Jetblue and after that I would rather just pay the difference next time, they wanted you to pay for Wifi, 10 dollars, no ma'am. I paid for a flight, why am I paying for extras that should be included , AA was like an airplane from the 80's or something."
Pros: "It was nice to have TV screens for the flight."
Cons: "I asked for headphones several times and never received it."
Pros: "Got us in a little early. Nice smooth flight"
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Had the seats in the emergency exit row had liftable handles between the seats, it would have been more comfortable... the rigid seats where not easy on my hips for a 9 hour flight"
Pros: "Everything else was fine/standard."
Cons: "Not all ground staff are crosstrained on how to accept manual payment for extra luggage and had to wait an extra half hour for the only person who can process a debit transaction. Does not make sense..."
Pros: "Friendly and quiet crew! Good, because the only thing I could do on the flight was sleep."
Cons: "Was not told to download entertainment application until onboard and out of range for the wifi. They also didn't mention having ipads to rent, not sure if they were available."
Cons: "No movies to watch, they told us to download their app and we would be able to watch movies. Tried to download the app on my phone without success, then tired to download the app on my laptop, again no luck. The staff had no clue how to help me, really old plane."
Pros: "The flight attendants were excellent. The dinner was similar to business class but the breakfast was just a slice of bread."
Cons: "The leg room was too small and the seat did not recline enough to have a decent sleep."
Pros: "It made it to Athens smoothly & on time."
Cons: "There was no movies available to watch. Flight attendant said we need the app to watch movies however there wasn't enough time to download the app before the flight took off to download it in time."
Cons: "Worst experience !!!!"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Bad food, no entertainment. Uncomfortable plane"
Pros: "Plenty of room in economy for my 6'3" frame, friendly and helpful crew."
Cons: "Everything was great - more selection on the movies/tv would be a plus"
Pros: "Nothing positive to say"
Cons: "Originating flight was delayed, so missed connection in Montreal and had to be rerouted. After going through 5 airports to reach our final destination, we finally made it - without our luggage!!! To make matters worse, the complete and extreme lack of empathy on behalf of Air Canada's customer service desk was less than appreciated by us.... As it turns out, Air Canada was aware all along that we would miss our connection; however, they still had us board our originating flight. The gate agent should have been conscientious and informed us that the delay was ongoing with our flight being number 22+ on the tarmac to take off, thus guaranteeing our missed connection. They should have rebooked us on another flight from our original destination vs rebooking us upon arrival in Montreal to miss further connecting flights. Very disappointed!!!!! Based on this experience alone, never again will I or my family travel Air Canada."
Pros: "The food was phenomenal for airplane food, the best I've had in 100s of flights! The flight was half empty, so taking over 3 seats to lie down was nice :) Very efficient boarding process at the Montreal airport, with updated wait times and fast moving line."
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "This was a +10 hour trans Atlantic flight. We walked on and immediately noticed there were no TV screens. I expected that the crew would be handing out portable screens instead which would have been ok but pretty inconvenient. This was not the case. We asked the crew and were told that to have entertainment for the flight we would have to download the Air Canada flight into our OWN devices and connect to the airplane wifi. They also explained that you can't download the app while connected to the airplane wifi so anyone who wanted entertainment had to scramble to download the app while we were still on the ground and Use cellular data! at this point 300 people were either panicking because they didn't have a personal device with them, didn't have a charger for their device and so would have power issues or were forced to use up roaming data because they had non Canadian phone plans!!! At the very least staff should have told passengers about this setup while they were waiting at the gate, so that people would have time to download the app with airport wifi! add to all this the fact that the app was extremely low quality and the options for movies/show were disappointingly dated and limited. This was not officially a cheap low cost flight for my family but the service we got certainly would categorize it as such. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Food tasted good. I pad entertainment was nice"
Cons: "Paid extra for the premium seats. When I went to the lounge they were very rude and said I signed up too late and did not even offer for me to pay to get in. Customer service on the phone was very rude again. The Toronto airport also is a hot mess. Some more. TV screens with gate info would be nice"
Cons: "Filthy No entertainment Had to pay for beer and wine"
Pros: "Food was okay. Crew was okay."
Cons: "Plane was so packed and tight we felt like sardines. Even a few more inches of room would make a huge difference. They also added two or three extra rows to the back of the plane. Folks were practically sitting in the crew staging area and literally directly next to the bathroom door. So glad we didn't get one of those seats."
Cons: "See above. We never made it on this flight! While we were able to rebook within a few hours the lack of coordination in Montreal was extremely frustrating."
Cons: "No room. Cramped, impossible to sleep on an overseas flight"
Pros: "The boarding was smooth. The attendant at the checking was very friendly and courteous, the website information on the luggage weight was incorrectly worded and we had to transfer some of the clothing to a carrying on bag. The wheelchair attendant was very friendly and courteous she made my mother feel relaxed since it was her first time traveling alone as a disabled person."
Cons: "A snack should have been served. Only juices were served. An announcement should have been made for layover passengers to purchase food at the airport if they are unable to purchase on board with a card."
Pros: "Professional and polite crew"
Cons: "Did not realize Air Canada Rouge did not have screens at every seat, made the 10 hour flight a little longer. Not a deal breaker and was overall pleased with the flight."
Pros: "Air crew was nice. Pilot nice too."
Cons: "Old plane. Smaller seat size than comparable airlines. Terrible food: a slice of oily cske, served in a plastic sleeve, must be the new low for an international breakfast...no individual tvs on the sets....hello, step into the 21st century.... And the selection available via your iPad or laptop and their wifi was small, and old...we had paid to upgrade our economy tickets to the next level, and we expected more...the size of the upgraded seats was not great and there wa no foot rest to put your feet on, which is a significant help to someone who flies so many hours and can assist with circulation...."
Pros: "The crew were Greek and I liked them very much. Other than that, though, nothing good stood out."
Cons: "There was a riot in Athens that day that delayed us 2 hours. I arrived in Athens WAY later than expected WITHOUT my baggage. It was still in Toronto and never moved once they made me late for my Munich flight. I did not have my baggage for several days following that and it made my trip difficult."
Pros: "Hey feed you well and offer movies even it's just an hour long flight."
Cons: "more movie and technology availability."
Pros: "Zoned boarding"
Cons: "Food limited and must be purchased. Entertainment must have downloaded app."
Pros: "The crew, that it all"
Cons: "The plane was clearly an older plane, there was NO on board entertainment for a 12 hr flight. The food was not good and there was no free wine - which is not normal for international"
Pros: "Once we got in the air, the flight was a short 35 minutes and fine."
Cons: "Tell customers beforehand that they need to download the AirCanada app to use wifi. One is unable to download the app in flight, and so we are without internet the entire time. I can't believe on this super long distance flight we didn't have TVs to watch anything. I had one on my first and shorter flight, but not the actual international flight portion? What the hell?"
Cons: "If it's the same airline, why not wait for the 16 people that had a delayed connecting flight."
Pros: "The gate crew was instrumental in helping us board our flight when the first leg was delayed and or connection time was only 30 minutes."
Cons: "Of all the international airlines I have flown, this was by far the least well equipped for a long haul flight. There was no entertainment (we had to download an app to your personal device beforehand, which we were not informed about until already onboard). There were iPads for rent, but not nearly enough for the number of passengers requesting. The dinner was a good size, but there were no additional snacks, only small sized drinks offered, and alcohol was not complimentary, and a smaller size than what's provided while in N America for the same price. Overall, I was quite unimpressed with Air Canada, and will avoid flying with them in the future, when possible."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The fact that you will have to travel almost 10 hours with absolutely no entertainment tv music etc. Not even a video on an era when Airlines should offer this as a standard. That was bad. Really bad"
Pros: "It was great."
Cons: "Like to be able to pick my seat ahead of time without a charge."
Pros: "Served edible food (not the best quality)"
Cons: "Uncomfortable; No source of entertainment; No functional charging ports; charges for snacks; some staff seemed rude"
Cons: "Delayed 2h"
Pros: "We left and arrived on time. Crew was courteous. Streaming service was surprisingly good!"
Cons: "Food was not good, and there was little food and drink service. Having to pay for an emergency exit seat."
Pros: "Food was good."
Cons: "I've never experienced an international flight with so many children who were up until all hours running up and down the aisles. 2 of the people in my group sat in front of two older children (ages 12 & 10, about) who kept kicking their seats. Eventually, they told the father, who separated the girls, but was just as antsy as his daughters. All lights were left on, making sleeping impossible. The crew took FOREVER bringing food and drinks out. The plane was so disgustingly messy - it looked like a small explosion happened on the plane. It was hot and uncomfortable. The flight experience made us nervous for what to expect in Greece when we arrived. Luckily, Greece was cleaner than the flight."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "Food, seating and entertainment was poor overall. No tvs/ entertainment of any sort"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Boarding was typical."
Cons: "What a horrible experience. Thanks for spreading out the screaming children evenly (really nice on a long flight). No entertainment at all. Getting off the plane was a God send, till I found out my luggage was separated/lost in 2 different parts of the world , none of which was were I was, it showed up 3 days later, 1 damaged."
Cons: "It was an Air Canada Rouge flight sold as Lufthansa. Bait and switch."
Pros: "It was ok."
Cons: "Not clean aircraft. My luggage left behind in Toronto.No entertainment unless you knew by chance that you need to download an application and having your own device.."
Pros: "The staff where friendly and easy going, the boarding was also organized and because the flight was really full of you gave the carry on to be checked they allowed you to priority board"
Cons: "The food countinues to be and issue I flew the same airline 2 years ago and the meal options had not changed. The salad was so bland I was certain that I was eating plastic food."
Pros: "Flight was on time. The landing was smooth, not bumpy."
Pros: "The 2-3-2 seat configuration is better for travelling as a duo. We were provided with blankets and pillows for the 9 HR flight. Food was quite tasty for airline meals."
Cons: "Host staff made very few trips up and down the aisles. Have not before been on an Air Canada flight where there are no seat back screens, so it was a surprise not to have any in flight entertainment."
Cons: "You need to warn people there is no in flight entertainment!"
Pros: "These were the reason I booked this flight"
Cons: "Temperature in cabin, I froze, thank god I planned ahead"
Pros: "Again, we arrived safely but a bit late."
Cons: "We're on a flight for 10 hours and our breakfast was a piece of banana bread. After a very disappointing dinner. Really didn't cut it. Have to access entertainment on my device - no thanks. Overall they just did everything on the cheap."
Pros: "I got lucky and got a very good seat. that was great. The plane was kept at a very decent temperature - a little cold but not an ice box."
Cons: "the food was really of a poor quality. that was quite surprising. even the dessert was inedible."
Cons: "On the Montreal-Athens leg the meal was free but of poor quality and quantity. Breakfast was just a piece of banana bread... No entertainment system in the aircraft. Had to rent iPad with very poor quality earphones (struggled to listen to the movies) Also some of the movies were not adjusted for the iPad which translated into using only a portion of the iPad screen."
Cons: "Their entertainment system relied on customer iPads! Software proved nearly impossible to install. Food service very slow."
