Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Seat power charger didn’t work"
Pros: "the plane didn't crash."
Cons: "honesty. 29 minute flight took 3 hours. first they blamed it on waiting for luggage, then they likely realized there were no connecting fllights, so that excuse didn't work, then they were 'closing the cargo doors' for 45 minutes, then they had to de-ice as the plane had now sat for 4 hours instead of 45 minutes, had it left on time."
Pros: "Good variety and quality meals during the flight as well as a super array of entertainment"
Cons: "The seats lack cushion so a 7 hour flight gets quite painfully after a while"
Cons: "If they had noticed the first plane was extremely hot before boarding everyone and leaving the gate and if once they found a new plane they had bothered to put fuel in it during the hour we deplaned, walked to a different terminal, and reboarded. Also, if they had passed out drinks or snacks during the flight."
Cons: "They ran out of food by the time they got to the back of the plane."
Cons: "I had a tight connection, but made it to the gate in time. I walked down the jetway to what appeared to be a locked door, with no one there to guide me on how to board. It turns out there was a stairwell at the end of the jetway, which was to take me to a bus on the tarmac. This was very stressful."
Cons: "Smooth flight, great crew."
Cons: "The international flights plane was much older - janky outdated screen that’s hard to use, zero leg room, and usb outlets that didn’t work. Also the WiFi kept dropping. The delta staff, food service and nice extras like warm cookies and towels were excellent."
Cons: "They left without us. They could have waited a few minutes knowing we were on a delayed flight but didn't. They actually left early."
Cons: "Not cancelling our flight"
Cons: "Working USB ports. On time departure."
Pros: "The food. And services."
Cons: "Upgrade for customers like me. For next fly to first class."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. On time. Entertainment was outstanding. Made the trip “fly” by!!"
Pros: "the crew was excellent the boarding was satisfactory"
Cons: "everything was from satisfactory to excellent"
Pros: "They ran out of my preferred menu choice for the first meal. Martha went out of her way to bring my first choice for the second meal, which was very thoughtful. Nancy brought my friend an extra meal."
Cons: "I thought there would be more new releases to watch, but overall the selection was good."
Pros: "The flight crew did an excellent job communicating the weather expectations for the flight. I appreciate that information although the actual flight turned out to be very smooth."
Pros: "Everything good"
Cons: "They charged me $646 for the flight. And we departed 40 min later. I arrived late to my work. They gave me seat in the back of the plane. Horrible"
Cons: "The overhead didn’t fit my standard and I ask the gate attendant and she assured me or would. Otherwise excellent game"
Pros: "Flight itself was fine. Captain was very communicative about rough air. 757-300's are amazingling noisy; recommend headphones for a relaxing flight."
Cons: "Could not login to Delta app at MCO to show boarding pass. Had to return to a kiosk to print paper passes. Very aggravating but lesson learned to always have a paper backup. Boarding was disorganized and not by priority. Gate agents allowed passengers bull rush the gate and allowed line cuts. They lost control."
Cons: "No video screens and wi-fi was too slow to use"
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Not much space for Carry ons. Much smaller than most aircrafts"
Pros: "Delta’s notifications are very timely and helpful. They even tell you when your bags are on the plane and at baggage claim."
Cons: "Not enough legroom to make any flight enjoyable."
Pros: "They ran out of salads so that was a little disappointing."

Pros: "Fast easy on time"
Cons: "6 hours late. Unacceptable."
Pros: "I araised safely in New York and all my luggage finally arrived. I suppose that is good but so much else was bad, very bad."
Cons: "The morning of my flight I got a notice the departures time was changed by one hour later but to still arrive at the airport at the same time. So I ended up spending almost four hours at the airport before leaving. Boarding was a mess as "groups" were not called but everyone just rushed the gate in mass and we're let on. Staff were functional but looked and acted surly. It was a functional flight in that I arrived at my destination but it was not managed and I did not feel my business was wanted-only my money."
Pros: "Everything escept the seat that was too small. I also had problems with the entertainment when trying to see movies."
Cons: "Seats too small ant could not watch Movies beacause the screen was defective."
Cons: "Too cramped. No leg room"
Pros: "Everything was great. Very nice flight"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "I had a whole row to myself and was able to sleep"
Cons: "No movie selection, no blankets."
Pros: "Great customer service"
Pros: "During my experience on 19 November I encountered only wonderful crew members, from the gate attendants to the on-flight crew. Everyone was extremely helpful and kind."
Cons: "Earlier in the day when I was checking in, there was a prompt to be added to the list of volunteers to take a different flight should one of my later flights (it did not specify, I flew from DAY to ATL, and then ATL to ORF) was overbooked. My schedule was accommodating enough that I selected yes. In ATL I was called up as a potential volunteer as they needed 3 volunteers to take a later flight that day. I was told that I was not initially assigned a seat since I had earlier agreed to be a potential volunteer. I was okay with all of this. We were told that the decision would be made at the end of boarding, and we would know if our seats were needed. At the end of boarding they called for the 3 volunteers to board. I was the last one to board and was given my seat assignment. Once I got on the plane I saw that someone had already been assigned my seat and let a flight attendant know what had happened. I stood on the plane for about 10 minutes while the flight attendants and other crew members tried to figure out what had happened. My name was not listed under any cabin (main, comfort, etc) even though I had a ticket and a seat assignment. Eventually they had to open the doors again for me to get off the plan as there were no available seats. Once I got back to the gate podium I was booked on a later flight, as would have been the case had the normal course of action for volunteering to give up my seat taken place. Everyone was extremely helpful in trying to figure out what had happened, but it was still frustrating that it had to happen in that way. Luckily I don't believe the delay caused any major delay for the flight. In the end, things worked out fine, it just seems as though this is an issue that didn't need to happen."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and accomodating"
Cons: "Entertainment system was very poor. Quality of sound and picture were substandard. Could not understand or see the movies. Seat were uncomfortable and boarding in Atlanta was very poorly handled. Probably will not fly Delta again although we have frequent flyer status."
Cons: "Delayed for 4 hours due to mechanical difficulties"
Pros: "The crew were professional and courteous"
Cons: "The fight was delayed multiple times, starting at a 5:44 takeoff and finally taking off around 9:15. It was delayed in 30 min increments, which made it hard to do anything else around the airport since I was constantly in a state of "about to board." A frustrating experience. No posts of extra snacks while waiting, or compensation or explanation of what caused the delay."
Pros: "Friendly and cleanliness."
Cons: "Cold drinks were warm."
Cons: "Very small spaces for everything."
Pros: "Helpful attendants and speedy boarding."
Pros: "Boarding reasonably quickly; able to find overhead storage for my roll-on even in Zone 3; departed on time and arrived a little early."
Cons: "Very tightly packed; minimal comfort for the flight. MD-88 not as comfortable as the Airbus from Chi to Atl."
Pros: "Being interviewed as I waited in line to check my luggage. Personal touch and felt good safety screening. Bottle of water given out. The friendliness and helpfulness of the crew. I was in the back of the plane. Very cheery despite the masses of people."
Cons: "Seat size small. Although I appreciate the serving of food during the flight, felt a lot of junky carbs and sugar."
Cons: "Did not have the movie that showed in the sky magazine. The touch screen didn't sense touch very well."
Pros: "Overall i was comfortable. I appreciate that they serve tea & it's not old & bitter tasting."
Cons: "we started to board 10 minutes before scheduled take off so we were late."
Cons: "Being scammed by the Chinese, China Southern"
Pros: "Length of flight was good, one of the flight attendants was very nice"
Cons: "Flight attendant arguing and having words with a passenger BEFORE the flight even took off was very alarming, the attendant had walked past the seat, we saw her face change, she halted and walked back to the passenger and a very heated and negative exchange ensued, then another flight attendant came out and threatened to evict the passenger from the flight, this was before the flight even took place .... all passengers were like just remove them already ... t his is a short flight and most of use were connecting from a long flight from overseas ...."
Cons: "I couldn't put my seat back properly because the man behind me was too big. Please put big people in spacious places its more comfortable for all."
Cons: "Best airline! More space between seats. Great service. Great meals and snacks and overall excellent experience! I've travel a lot and no other airline in North America comes close! Thanks!!"
Pros: "Everything other than luggage situation"
Cons: "Luggage left in London and had to pay for baggage when Momondo said luggage was included"
Pros: "The food was better than most other airlines"
Cons: "The boarding process is confusing. Checking the passports separately in the same area boarding lead to a lot of congestion and confusion. The boarding pass reading machines often didn't work. It looked like passengers in higher classes couldn't use the economy machines."
Pros: "Everything, I love Lufthansa"
Cons: "Seats are super tight and very uncomfortable for tall people."
Pros: "I booked with Lufthansa, but this was a United flight. I prefer United's boarding process with multiple groups to Lufthansa's single group. Lufthansa's leads to a very very long line 20 minutes before boarding starts."
Cons: "United had fewer movie options, fewer meals, and worse food than the Lufthansa flight we took when we traveled to Frankfurt. It was also delayed two hours due to mechanical issues. I will have to pay more attention when I book next time to avoid United flights."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, food was bad"
Cons: "Flew to Grand Rapids turned around to Chicago and then flew back to Grand Rapids"
Pros: "Food was good but not enough."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working."
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice and the gate was changed..."
Cons: "the plane was late boarding and some on board had tight connections. crew were aware but didnt let us leave first.we barely made our connection as we had to go through security in Munich. stress could have been avoided by letting us deplane first."
Pros: "Airy plane. on time. Good service. Flight wasn't full"
Pros: "on time Family Check in"
Pros: "Can I say basically everyyyyyything. The meals were amazing with respect to taste and the timeliness of them. The crew was extremely courteous and kind"
Cons: "Just typically being on a plane not much can do about the space in economy"
Pros: "Food and boarding"
Cons: "Flight was 1h40 late. Upon arrival we parked at a gate, but had to be bused. And it was raining"
Pros: "Lufthansa has it all together and knows how to fly. I recommend to everyone!"
Pros: "Food is good, staff was attentive"
Cons: "Entertainment could have used some more recent options"
Pros: "They’re very polite persons"
Cons: "The way they treat people"
Pros: "I believe Lufthansa does more than the majority of other airlines for economy class passengers."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."
Pros: "Every time I fly Lufthansa I am super pleased with the food. All other aspects fine too."
Pros: "Good plane and service"
Cons: "Ticket check in was unclear, apparently we had to verify our tickets at the gate but there was no sign or previous instruction from the check in counter. I waited through the boarding line only to be told to first verify my ticket. My bags were lost on the Madrid to frankfurt flight, the first part. Unacceptable, if the airline can not schedule flights at their own hub that guarantee swift transfer it us pathetic."
Pros: "Stewardess enjoyed her work encouraged us to take better seats. A full hot meal."
Pros: "hot food and some complimentary alcoholic beverages"
Pros: "Luftahnsa is great. I can’t seem to get our system to recognize the two Condor is abysmal"
Cons: "My passport was stolen on the overnight train I took to get to the airport. It wasn't until I was off of the train that I went to grab my passport and credit card and realized my tiny little purse was gone. I had to rush to the US Embassy, get a new passport, and then rush back to the airport. I didn't arrive until 40 minutes after my flight had left and I was a nervous wreck. Unfortunately Lufthansa staff could not care less. The guy at the ticket counter even looked at my new urgent passport that had the issue date listed as today, so clearly this all had just happened as it was only 10:50am still. What did Lufthansa do? Well they told me if I wanted to fly out the same day, I would have to pay 2700 Euro additional! My jaw dropped and then he said I could fly out tomorrow for an additional 675 Euro instead. I was still in shock as I felt like I had just been taken advantage of with my stolen passport and credit card and now it's happening again. I asked if there was any way he could find something cheaper and he said that I paid so cheap for this flight that I would need to speak with the agency I booked with to help me out more and then he dismissed me. Let me have you know that I booked this fare during an amazing sale that Lufthansa was having and I booked it directly through their website and now it was being held against me. There was no offer to pay something like a $200 change your flight fee. Instead he let that plane leave with an empty seat because I didn't have the 2700 Euro to pay him. Here I was, alone, nervous, in a foreign country, and I had to get my thoughts together the best I could and I immediately started looking up my own flights. I ended up having to book a flight with a different company and just forfeiting any kind of credit that Lufthansa would have applied to their overly exorbitant priced flights. Good job Lufthansa for being the worst customer care service I have ever experienced... and I have flown over 20 airlines and over 100 flights."
Cons: "Plane was delayed forcing me to run to my connecting flight"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "I liked professionalisam of the flight crew from the start till the end of the flight. They were always nice and ready to serve on 10 hours flight."
Pros: "Although the departure was a little bit bumpy, the snack was tasty!"
Pros: "there was food on the plane, which was quite o.k. and the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed as it arrived too late. the boarding therefore, was a bit hectic, especially as Lufthansa does not make boarding according to zones or group numbers like most of the other major airlines."
Pros: "Quality of service, personable flight attendants, comfortable seats, decent food quality."
Cons: "Entertainment system is average at best. More current and popular options for music and movies should be included. My system quit working during the flight and did not return to operation."
Pros: "Extremely nice staff starting from check-in and till the end of flight, everything was perfectly on time"
Pros: "Punctual, efficient, Lufthansa never fail to deliver."
Pros: "Very organized"
Pros: "Everything! The food was nice, I liked the entertainment too!"
Cons: "That my fellow passenger took some of my limited space due to being obese:("
Pros: "Flying from San Francisco to Madrid via Munich in economy class. All very good in general, in fact the best experience compared with other airlines I have used in the past for the same trip. Vegetarian meal was good, but only on the long leg. Munich to Madrid was not possible to choose the special meal, but that is not that important for me, so I eat what I could and that was good enough. The crew was super nice. The plane is huge, toilets are literally 'downstairs' and extra room to hang out. I will definitely choose Lufthansa again for my trips to Europe."
Cons: "If you want to reserve a seat in advance you need to pay for it, that's the only thing I didn't quite like because I found it after I bought the ticket. It was not mentioned clearly in advance, and it felt like an afterwards surprise, really? I paid for it anyways. For me it is worth it to make sure I get a window seat on the long leg flight."
Pros: "Almost nothing was enjoyable about the overseas Lufthansa flights I took. This particular flight, however, did not make me sick like the initial Lufthansa flight to Europe. I also appreciated that the crew asked the passengers in front of me to put their seats up during meals."
Cons: "The overseas Lufthansa flights have the least space of all the flights and trains I took throughout my trip, including other Lufthansa flights within Europe. The bathrooms were more cramped and fewer in number for an overbooked flight, boarding was disorganized and delayed, the passengers in front of me put their seats all the way back for most of the flight, and seriously, just a few more inches of space would make these long flights 104% better. I think everyone would be happier to fly on less awful planes, including the poor crew who has to deal with miserable passengers."
Pros: "Extra luggage at not extra charge. Good food... Love the crew"
Cons: "Messy boarding"
Pros: "Fast the boarding process all in time good food"
Cons: "All was alright"
Cons: "Very long lines while checking in"
Pros: "Please do it more easy for the costumers"
Cons: "The people who have baggage for check in can do it since the beginin the travel gol and back"
Pros: "The plane was very comfortable, and I had plenty of space, because I was sitting near to the exit door. The service and the crew were just great. I love traveling with Lufthansa."
Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable trip"
Pros: "Staff was exceptionally friendly and efficient. Aircraft was pleasant and clean. Seats are a bit uncomfortable in that they seemed to lack cushion comfort but space was OK for economy class. I will highly recommend your airline to others. Thank you!"
Cons: "Food quality was not good."
Pros: "The name of the company"
Cons: "I has a flight between mad to franfurt connection to Miami. And lufthansa never advise me that the first leg of my trip was cancelled."
Pros: "Everyone was very nice and I enjoyed the entertainment onboard."
Cons: "The food was average."
Pros: "Entertainment was good."
Cons: "Flight attendants not pleasant or nice."
Pros: "Everything.... The food was great. Vegetarian options! Korma? Mm mm just simple. Headphones better than other trips so movies more enjoyable... Nice stewards..."
Cons: "Wish ticket had said which terminal bc I went to Lufthansa and had to switch..."
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: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. Without that tickets we can not claim the bags. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Pros: "Crew memebers"
Cons: "The best airline what I was flying so far !! Excellent food, drink, comfort seat, free entertainment with great selection."
Cons: "the tray was broken and the water felt all over. the flight was 1 hr delayed. All of us stood the 1 hr waiting to know what's next. We could sit."
Pros: "Boarding procedures and crew were top. Wines and beverages excellent and even in super economy water was served several times"
Cons: "The food could have been much better, should consider doing everything organic. As it was, the chicken in the meal was awful, the dessert terrible. The rice in the salad hard, almost uncooked. The only good quality food was the bread and the cheese"
Pros: "Late departure, dirty, staff not friendly."
Pros: "On time, no hassle."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was excellent"
Pros: "Amazing crews!"
Cons: "It was a great flight can’t think of anything"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and always came around with water."
Cons: "The “vegetarian” option was tuna which isn’t vegetarian and there was no vegetarian snack. With the hundreds of dietary and religious food restrictions you would think having a vegetarian option would be much more attainable.. They also didn’t make an announcement about our flight being late."
Cons: "wine selection divider between seats"
Cons: "It was great trip thank you Air France"
Cons: "The fligh Washington delay more than a hour"
Cons: "Departure delayed, reschedules and then cancelled without any direct notification to us with 2 first class tickets !! If we didn’t have Kayak we would be sitting in the airport !,,"
Pros: "Everything. crew friendly and food/drinks the best"
Cons: "Nothing...all was wonderful"
Pros: "I was given a great seat and the food was OK- not the Air France food of 5 years ago but still good"
Cons: "I didn't really use the in flight entertainment - the usual movies, tv etc"
Pros: "Over all pretty good for price."
Pros: "Over all everything was great, except the bags check in"
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: "That we were heading home. Nice seats. Good food. Lots of entertainment choices. Power plugs ( USB and European power) were appreciated. Wine as a choice with meal was appreciated and brandy after the meal."
Cons: "Some of the shows and movies were a bit 'trashy'. Long flight. I was in the middle seat next to an inattentive octanegarian who was nice but kept calling the flight crew to fix her mess up of the video system. No air controls on this plane - so it was overly warm. 10 hours of overly warm makes for a stinky passenger. Oof."
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."
Cons: "Separated me and my wife for the whole flight! Could not accommodate us together. This reservation was made over 6 weeks ago !!!"
Cons: "Told us to get in line for boarding and review our tickets and then made us stand there for 75 minutes before boarding."
Pros: "If the flight would have leave in time we would receive our luggage in time"
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"
Pros: "Yelling, cheering and literally rolling in the aisle made for a really annoying flight"
Cons: "Infusions bad behavior. Also, flight number was changed and AF. Was understaffed to handle questions on squirrelly luggage check."
Cons: "CDG is a monster. The distances are long . The signage is poor and when I asked for directions the diirections I got were wrong."
Pros: "La entrada"
Cons: "El resto de cosas"
Pros: "Standard on most parts with pleasant staff"
Cons: "Flight was 1/2hr with poor pre-flight communication on the topic. Food wise, the chocolate cookie was better than nothing...but a little savory snack would have been nice."
Pros: "In cabin crew was attentive and friendly. Food was good and came at good times. Middle bathroom on Airbus 380 was big and comfy."
Cons: "Boarding was not too well organized and I followed Security's direction who put me in wrong line and I wasn't able to board with my priority group. Sitting in exit row with no floor storage so this delay made it hard to find overhead storage above my seat. (Grrrr) Entertainment system didn't work which made the flight feel LOOONG. (They offered an in-flight credit, but I'd paid for premium exit row seat and had to choose between moving to working system in crowded middle seat or keep premium, exit seat. I decided to have them move me to a seat with a working entertainment system, which were available and they'd offered, but never happened.) When I got home, I discovered the gift I purchased with in-flight credit and my own money wasn't the one I'd requested from Duty Free catalog so now I have to figure out how to solve this problem. (COULDN'T GET IT RIGHT.) Premium exit row seat was narrow, due to in-seat tray table & entertainment system, but seatbelt mounts and thinly padded seat made it even more uncomfortable on a long flight."
Cons: "My seat was changed without my permission. Very unprofessional staff at Mumbai airport"
Pros: "Crew was nice and responsive"
Cons: "The overall experience is regular at best"
Pros: "The hostesses were very kind and nice"
Pros: "Efficient on and off Staff polite and helpful"
Pros: "The check in process was much better in the CFG airport than SFO. Very organized."
Cons: "The food was mediocre on this flight. The seats also are surprisingly uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew is great, with their typical slightly humourous and casual French attitude. Great collection of international quality movies."
Cons: "Average and disappointing sitting space. The vegan lacto-ovo meal is disappointing."
Pros: "the food"
Cons: "no room for legs"
Pros: "Personal treatment I have received as I was with a 7 months baby. An agent helps me to carry my hand luggages up to the plane entrance and to pass in priority"
Cons: "2 hours delayed..."
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: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good."
Pros: "Airplane staff were good"
Pros: "Nothing..worst experience ever. Simply apologising for delayed doesn't help"
Cons: "Flight into and out of indiapolis was delayed by 2 hours. Missed my connection flight to LHR because of the delay. never had such a flying experience. Flight was operated by Delta. I won't be flying them again."
Cons: "Food and coffee were cold. Service on AF is getting worse."
Pros: "movies were good, crew was great. Comfy seats. It was really as nice as an economy flight could be."
Cons: "delayed flight, hot overall plane, personal TV malfunctioned a lot"
Cons: "Couldn't adjust the seat and the cushion wasn't comfortable neither seat or back. The bottom back was like a board across the bottom and hurts."
Cons: "Airport handling is catastrophic. A lost bagage created the twins to be locked. Half an hour and we could not enter. Delays and huge mess in front of police checkpoint. No announcement and no care for passengers approaching departure time. And to top it all no announcement of any delays. Had to cheat my way through the priority line and run a sprint through security and beyond. Reached the gate to note that there was a delay of 5 minutes.... Grrrr"
Pros: "I liked their seats, I had enough space to get comfortable flying internationally for 14 hours."
Cons: "Just wish they served water a couple times more, because when you're in the plane for the whole day, 2-3 little cups isn't enough."
Pros: "I was upgraded to business class because I had to fly home early after I suffered a crushed wrist and broken arm while in Spain. I could not have made it through the flight without the extra room and pillows and my daughter by my side."
Cons: "The stewards and Stewardesses were very unfriendly. I was in so much pain and not one person asked if there was anything they could do to make the flight more comfortable. Just the kindness of offering would’ve been so nice. One girl just threw a water bottle in my lap!"
Pros: "Our MAD-JFK flight was delayed and we weren’t going to make our connection, so American Airlines automatically rerouted us through Philapdelphia, and got us to Indy just two hours and thirty minutes later than our original arrival time. I was very pleased wiht this service"
Pros: "The flight wasn't full and so there was more space to spread out than is normal on long-haul flights."
Cons: "For the second time on a Madrid/JFK flight in two weeks, overhead lights were broken for some seats, which is absurd for a 7.5 hour flight. Luckily, my flight attendant was kind enough to allow me to change seats to one in which the overhead light was actually working. Unfortunately, the plane was so busted that even though my overhead light was working, the headphone jacks in both of the seats that I had access to went off in the midst of food service, and as far as I could tell was never reset. Finally, and most appallingly, one of the flight attendants was completely out of control, and during the boarding process repeatedly and loudly scolded passengers. During service, she rammed the food cart into multiple seats so hard that food flew out of it onto the floor. Rather than apologizing to the customers whose seats she had rammed, she laughed loudly"
Cons: "As above"
Pros: "Great flight crossing the Atlantic with good food and beverage services along with a wide selection of inflight entertainment and a charging port."
Pros: "The staff was great, they were on point tending to the needs of all passangers. Good leg room"
Cons: "The plane was old, it did not offer the amenities of newer planes. The jacks to plug the earphones weren't working"
Pros: "Nothing, I got stuck in Spain and had to pay for a new one"
Cons: "I was late for my flight connection, the airline in Spain was unable to robook me because I booked with kayak and I ended up loosing the ticket and had to pay 1,500 US dollars to get the rest of the way home. I could not get a hold of kayak for help by any means"
Pros: "Announcements clear pleasant staff decent food"
Cons: "All was well"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the plane was not full."
Cons: "The food was terrible, it’s getting worse every year. It’s worse than hospital food. One extra luggage was 80,00 Euros which I find expressly pricy when usually it doesn’t cost more than $50.00 US dollars"
Pros: "the flight was nearly empty so everyone got to stretch out and there was almost always a restroom available"
Cons: "I got a lot of engine noise so I didn't enjoy the entertainment as much"
Pros: "Comfortable flight."
Pros: "From madrid foto Charlotte everything was excellentm"
Cons: "From Charlotte to miami they made me wait more than an hour for my luggage because they sent mine on another flight"
Pros: "Flight was under booked so there was plenty of room."
Cons: "Crew was unexpectedly loud/chatty with one another throughout the flight, even when things were quite and calm they were calling over our heads to one another and laughing loudly. Initially, it's an international flight from Spain and no crew members in my section atleast could speak Spanish. I had to help a passenger who only spoke spanish because the attendant kept repeating an order in english, just getting louder each time."
Cons: "The seats are very tight."
Cons: "48 hours to get to Philadelphia from Madrid. First flight was cancelled due to plane mechanical problems. Then flight diverted due to bad weather. Horrible flight."
Pros: "Staff great, food good"
Cons: "Seats had no cushioning for bottom. Need to improve"
Cons: "I hate American airlines. It is the WORST. We were held for almost 4 hours waiting for "maintenance call" then flight was cancelled. THEN it took two full hours to get back checked bags. By ths point it was 5 pm, had been at airport since 8:30 -- no food offered, no apologies, not even a glass of water. Of course, no flights back to US so I was stuck an extra day, completely messed up school and work. I THOUGHT I was booking with Iberia but it was a code share. I WILL NEVER fly American Airlines again!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. Upgrade from cloth seats was nice."
Cons: "The food wasn't terribly tasty or filling. Also, it was freezing - with a blanket, sweater and scarf on."

Cons: "Good was good. Snacks and beverages were awesome."
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew besides the message below. Still one of my favorite airlines!"
Cons: "Crew made too many announcements that were commercial. The volume of the announcements was out of sync with the inflight entertainment audio and hurt my ears."
Pros: "Nothing out of the ordinary, which for plane flights is about as good as it gets. No delays, no scares, no extra inconveniences."
Cons: "It's a transatlantic plane flight, not anything I'd describe as a fun experience."
Pros: "Food service was efficient and not delayed."
Cons: "Crew asked us to close window shades , so others could watch TV. It was difficult to find things under seat and reading light not as good as real light. Also we think 9 hours of darkness contributed to our difficulty in adjusting to time zone in states. My entertainment panel was very difficult to use and frustrating. It didn't respond to light touch, heavy touch, etc."
Pros: "New aircraft, very comfortable"
Cons: "The Flight Attendants were HORRIBLE. They were rude and dismissive to all passengers, One in particular (Suzette) actually made a passenger sitting next to me cry. I was embarrassed to be an American. It was a nightmare of a flight because of the flight attendants."
Pros: "Everything was fine. Attendants very good."
Cons: "Everything fine."
Pros: "Safe flight. Two seats instead of three on the outer aisles. Although the flight was an hour and a half delayed, we landed at the original time. Not sure how that works."
Cons: "Very old plane. No individual entertainment for an 8 hour flight. The old fashion tv were in the middle of the plane. The flight attendant were almost non existent. One toilet did not work. I was very disappointed"

Cons: "The Charlotte - Atlanta portion! Flight attendance were like doing a favor... very bad service."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "The entertainment touch screens are HORRIBLE! It can take up to a minute to get the button you are pushing to respond. It was this way on both AA flights I had (different planes). Also, when the captain or flight attendant chimes in with a message when you are watching a movie, the volume of the announcement is incredibly loud. Last, there was no WiFi available on the plane. It was a 9 hour flight and this is 2016."
Pros: "Nice food service."
Cons: "It wasn't British Airways. I had to hurry to American after being told at the check it was a different airline."

I was not given I decent deal I was put on a letter flight when in actually I made if home earlier because of a desk woman who noticed I she could help.

Cons: "In tourist the crew treats you like cattle ."
Pros: "No problems flight wise. Made it safely overseas."
Cons: "Grumpy and impatient flight attendants, particularly with the gentleman who only spoke Spanish next to me. Worse was the nearly two-hour line to check our baggage and check in for our flights! Total mayhem."
Pros: "Entertainment was good but the system had to be rebooted two times as it was getting stuck."
Cons: "crew was more about relaxing themselves vs. worried about passengers. Wrong priorities! They ran out of food choice by the time they got to our seating area which was at half point of the plane!"

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Total confusion about tickets. Last minute shift to Iberian Airlines and time change. No coordination between airlines on boarding passes. Took 2 hours to check in at Madrid airport and still wrong. Worst airline food in over 40 years of flying. Miami airport filthy."
Pros: "Good service, friendly staff and easy boarding process, good food and on time departure"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Nothing, it was better than most other airlines"
Pros: "2 free checked bags"
Cons: "Very long wait time."
Pros: "Kind staff. We were served a very healthy snack which was also delicious. Flight was delayed due to fog in Porto but oh well! No big problema."
Cons: "No delays."
Cons: "We were not able to board the plane. We left our morning flight from Madrid on time and arrived as expected. We hurried through the airport and went exactly where we were directed. Despite this, the gates closed on us while we were running to the gate. TAP sold us a service they could not provide."
Pros: "Flight didn’t happen"
Cons: "Transfer to other airline was abysmal"
Pros: "The crew was good and went out of their way to help the passengers. The seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment could definitely be better. Newer screens, and more options."
Pros: "Extremely friendly flight crews, never hesitate to help with a smile on their face!"
Cons: "The layover situation needs to be improved. When you give 50 minutes, there really isn’t enough time to deplane, get through the check point, and make it to the terminal. We were told to run like animals in the airport in order to not miss the flight."
Cons: "I fee cheated because it is the first time that I have. to pay for luggage. In their website it states that the basic fare allows in check-in bag. They said to me that there are different categories of basic fare, which is not disclosed in their website. Additionally any seat change cost"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and attentive, there was a delay to boarding and departure but they were very apologetic about it. Service was attentive on the plane and bags promptly delivered at the baggage carousel."
Cons: "I upgraded at the airport to Executive class, which is really a bit of a scam to be honest. It’s just the first two rows of the plane and the middle seat kept free... the seats were no different to economy. Not worth the 109€ upgrade fee."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and professional. Airplane was comfortable and very spacious. Food was awesome."
Cons: "Really need to look at a more efficient way to board the passengers. Was pretty chaotic and the gate was way too small for so many people. Feel like the passengers with carry on luggage were thrown to the wolves while those with backpacks were treated way better."
Pros: "The crew was nice in the cabin."
Cons: "The Check in people were insanely rude. They made me pay 50 Euro for my carryon. The size was fine but it weighed more than 7 kilo. There was no problem outbound and plenty of people had bigger carryons"
Pros: "Punctuality, service and confort"
Cons: "There wasn't food or entertainment. Might want to add NA as an option in those categories"
Pros: "I am used to traveling continents with other companies. There has always been 2 check in bags allowed with no extra charge as long as you are under 23kg on each. I get to the airport with my 2 bags ready, TAP tells me on large holidays, they only allow 1 bag to be checked to my specific african destination until January 11. And that one bag will cost me $120. They will not let me have the second one. Who does that? How much sense is this supposed to have. I checked with others and they do not do that. Never again they will see me."
Cons: "TAP's stupid rules against my destination. Not faire!"
Cons: "The service was worse than poor. The planes seay table had hair and dandruff all over it. The air hostesses handed me the food two isles away and I had to hand it to my whole row. I would never pay this price for business class for this airline or ever trust Kayak to give good options."
Cons: "The marked delay"
Pros: "The pilot could fly the plane."
Cons: "The servers were rude."
Cons: "1) An extra piece of baggage, using the iPhone TAP, was priced at EUR 65; but, finalizing the purchase, the app tried to charge me EUR 140! Had to go to LIS airport to buy at the right price. 2) Had to pay for my free of charge seats!!!! They changed 4 times!!! a) Having tickets with seat assignments free of charge, had the chosen seats confirmed on e-ticket. b) At airport, 3 days before departure, attendant informed that seats assignment had been erased; she made new seat assignments at worse location; c) On check-in, found that seats were changed again to worse even; now to the back, and “2 in the middle of 4”. d) Had to pay to get my original free of charge seat assignments!!! Had similar situations in all my recent TAP flights. Cannot believe is a system problem! Looks like more a TAP policy to short-change (long time, in my case) customers."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Nothing to eat, not even paying."
Cons: "Had to check 2 of our luggages, and it cost $95 per piece. Never flown an airline where I had to pay more than $50 per piece. Also carryon has to be less than 8 kg. Our small luggage that we had to check never had any problems with any other airlines about being a carryon but since it was over 8 kg, it had to be checked. Flight was short but no entertainment screen to watch or listen to music. Will not be flying with airline ever again."

Cons: "Gate number was different from what was on my ticket and the tv screen at the original gate didn't indicate where the new gate was supposed to be. Don't need that kind of stress when traveling!"
Pros: "Check in app"
Cons: "Non-reclining seats"
Pros: "Good staff, Quick flight, Easy flight no problems. The biscuits are tasty."
Cons: "Seats need an inch or two more leg room for me, the biscuits they gave out were tasty but would of been really nice to have a sandwhich. But that's air travel these days. There was a slight problem with the air craft before we took off. Air conditioning was off and the door were closed while we sat there for 15 mins. They kept us well informed though, not the end of the world."
Cons: "The delay which caused us to miss our connecting flight and as a result being stranded at the Lisbon airport for 6+ hrs. This would have been avoided if there was proper communication within the airline-- an absolutely irresponsible way to handle our plight. The ground personnel themselves admitted that no one informed them of our arrival time. True or false? go figure.This all occured while they refused to allow us on board our plane that was still at the gate and nowhere near taking off. This also resulted in rescheduling our ground transfer, which resulted in additional expense. Overall, a nightmare of an airline. Avoid."

They only deliver once a day. Additionally, they charge extra for everything you can imagine. Any weight over their limit is 105 euros."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked by over 20 people and even though we got the airport 2 hrs early to check in we were bumped from the flight. Next flight available was not for over 8 hrs later that day. Rude and not helpful employees. No gate announcement when flight was then delayed. Most American size carry one do not fit in overbooked head and was forced to gate check."
Cons: "Wait for boarding"
Cons: "bad checkin. just trying to get more money for baggage.."
Cons: "They didn't hold the flight for a minor delay of our flight into Lisbon."
Pros: "Their system updates you with messages on gate changes and times. Staff is very friendly and professional. Planes are clean and seem well maintained."
Pros: "Generally good and professional."
Cons: "One washroom was permanent;y dirty because the FLUSH mechanism wasn't performing well. Another washroom was permanently locked - causing higher traffic in the remaining washrooms."

Cons: "Madrid Airport security check opened all carry-on baggage and containers with medications."
