The crew worked with great pains within a difficult situation. The flight was delayed by an hour, full flight had dirty lavatories without water from the get go! One of the middle lavatories could not lock! This plane should have been better serviced by ground crew before it departed Doha! Infotainment system is confusing, keep it simple and add more up to date movies. Even then, I will still fly QR over all else."

Pros: "Qatar is not glitzy. Better than that, it was straightforward and relaxed and comfortable. Crew was pleasant and helpful."

I confirmed the wheelchair option well advance before her travel date in Qatar Airways Web site. I got the confirmation also in the Qatar Airways Web site. I usually fly with my family as I have a big family with couple of children and elderly. I will never fly Qatar again, this was the 1st and the last fly with Qatar airways."

Pros: "Very friendly flight staff."
Cons: "The first flight of my journey was delayed which made me late for my next two connecting flights. I arrived on vacation a day late. Paid for a hotel and activities that I never used. My bag arrived 5 days late. I had to buy clothes on a daily basis which ate up more time and fun money. The airline gave me nothing except empty promises and dismissive apologies."
Pros: "Quick Flight and nice crew."
Cons: "The crew wasn't the problem at all. Some of the passengers were just being obnoxious and sitting next to their friends not what their seat numbers were. The BIGGEST problem are the packed planes with no social distance between passengers which is a HUGE concern for me."
Pros: "The crew was fine and was thankful they found a way to get back to Detroit (but, it required a stop in Dallas and an overnight in Chicago)"
Cons: "There was no social distancing or enforcement for wearing masks. I saw no sanitizing on any of the three flights I had to take to get to Detroit. of the four airports only the one in Guadalajara asked any health questions and could be seen sanitizing the waiting room and eliminating seats to keep spacing."
Cons: "Better spacing. Don't tell me the last two rows are blocked off for safety that's bs, they were blocked off so the flight attendants could have a row to themselves."
Cons: "Fog in Philly. AA should have diverted our plane to a bigger airport where AA could have serviced us (eg. Washington DC). Instead AA diverted us to Salibury/Ocean City!! We missed our connections."
Cons: "never made it to this flight."
Pros: "American Airlines officially has the most uncomfortable seats. The seats barely recline at all, the cushions on the seats are thin and they simply pack too many seats on the plane to not feel like you’re packed in a can of sardines."
Cons: "Re-design the seating on your planes. It sucks at this point."
Cons: "We waited in the shuttle bus for one hour while they determined the plane needed maintenance and found another plane to warm up"
Pros: "Seat was o.k. Loved that captain made periodic announcements, esp to point out Niagara Falls ."
Cons: "It was a very good flight. I had a tired back.... suspect it's because I'm short, (5 ft tall) seats are somewhat uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was very nice. The seats uncomfortable."
Cons: "If I can avoid flying American I will... on my way to Rome, 4 hours delay due to technical issues. Same plane on our way back, 2 hours delay due to technical issues. I did not feel safe knowing that plane has so many technical issues. Had to wait almost an hour on the plane to get to our gate."
Pros: "On time and quick boarding process"
Cons: "The attendants at the gates could have been more pleasant"
Cons: "Delayed taking off by 35 mins because of onload slowness and issues. Resulted in landing late in seattle and missed the last transportation option home for the night. Should have had 1.5 hours to make my shuttle. Instead got stuck in my destination airport for the night."
Pros: "The flight was probably one of the worst I've ever taken. The seats and aisles are so narrow. You had to walk side ways to get down the aisles. Very uncomfortable flight. It was so bad I had to upgrade to first class on the return flight because I just couldn't bear it again. I was not happy ."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Everyone was too hot, sweltering and perspiring, way to crowded and packed. Literally could not moved at all."
Pros: "Had to take three flights to get from Maine to California. All were on time or ahead of schedule. Flight attendants did exceptional work on each flight."
Cons: "My left ear still won’t clear but other than that nothing."
Cons: "late departure"
Cons: "The 2 hour delay due to the ground crew not having it together, this reason coming from the pilot. Flight attendant was complaining more than any of us passages. Even though 85% of us missed our connecting flights. After boarding the plane, the smell of the restroom, we all had to deplane."
Pros: "Macy in the first class cabin was friendly, attentive and very efficient."
Cons: "Being delayed"
Pros: "In flight movies were free."
Cons: "Poor customer service in Spain. Poor boarding procedures. You have to pay for advance seating, even 24 hours in advance. That should not be the case for an international long flight. Very poor food. My friend and I could not sit together on a nine hour flight."
Pros: "Once we were finally on the plane everything felt comfortable and looked newish."
Cons: "DO NOT FLY AVIANCA IF YOU HAVE ANYWHERE YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO GO! The flight was delayed by 7 hours. We were told different stories Time and Time again by the ground crew. Either the plane was on the way or it was turning back, or it had landed or was perpetually 20 mins from landing. At one point, they did slip and admit that they actually had no way of actually tracking the plane, so everything they told us had been wild guesses about what had actually been happening! When some passengers asked to speak with a manager, we were told that the manager was not accepting calls at that time. After hours and hour and hours of delays and lies, they finally found a plane, but we still had to wait an hour for a crew as the original crew was now over their time limit. Once we were airborne, the flight was smooth and the newly cobbled together crew was nice. Zero mention or promise of reparations for the massive delay. AGAIN, DO NOT FLY AVIANCA IF YOU HAVE ANYWHERE YOU ACTUALLY WANT TO GO!"
Cons: "Broken plane, re-route and conflicting inaccurate email updates."
Pros: "Movie and tv selection was good. Boarding was a cinch, we took off exactly on time, seats were comfortable, too."
Cons: "Airline misplaced my boyfriend's checked back with our duty free Portuguese wine in it. It still hasn't been delivered to him the next day. They had three hours to get the bag on the flight."

Pros: "Excellent check in and access to plane food and entertainment great"

Pros: "Everything was smooth from check in to arrival. Flight and bags arrived timely."
Cons: "No entertainment options."
Pros: "Brand new plane, very quick boarding, on time departure, great pilots"
Cons: "Earbuds super cheap couldn’t hear anything they re sponsored by Avis rent a car Crew. Just not caring on our needs. And I was in economy plus and paid twice the price. Will switch back to Air France next time"
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: "Comfortable seats, good legroom."
Cons: "Not enough coffee for breakfast."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "SFO employee told me wrong gate as gate number changed. Missed flight. Layover in Chicago delayed 3.5 hours."
Pros: "The crew on American Airlines flight #109 from LAX to HNL was excellent!"
Cons: "Finding checked luggage at philadelphia airport. Inadequate signs and helpful people. It was very hard on my wife who is disabled to walk to the luggage carousel and we didnt see anyone who could help with disabilities."
Pros: "Smooth flight, excellent service and good food."
Pros: "Boarded and took off on time; great crew"
Cons: "Waiting 30 minutes to get off the plane because they couldn't use the gate assigned to them."
Cons: "It was not British airline but was contracted to American airline. It lacked class."
Cons: "We booked a BA flight from Pittsburgh to Glasgow, through Philadelphia. We intentionally chose BA because we anticipated good service. We later learned that the flight was serviced by American. Our original flight was delayed one day because we missed our connection due to weather on the East Coast (after six hours at the airport). American re-ticketed us for a flight the next day. After several misstarts in Pittsburgh, we arrived in Philadelphia with minutes to spare. After running to the gate, we were then greeted with what turned out to be a four hour delay. Then, upon return, we learned that our seat selections/priority boardings were all deleted because of the re-ticketing on the on the flight out, and we spent hours on the phone and at the airport trying to get things sorted out and ensure that we had a return flight. One of the worst trips ever in my experience."
Pros: "The boarding was quick"
Cons: "I am surprised that an 8 hr international flight, had no WIfi.. I had to continually ask and check the time with Crew members. This needs to change when the average seat is $800-900 and the flight holds 35 seats. AA is raking in WAY to much money to be this cheap. No WiFi and having to look up to the middle isle to watch a child's movie on repeat " Guardians of the Galaxy." My neck and back were in extreme discomfort from the 8 hr flight back to NYC. If AA had headrest monitors and WiFi this could be avoided. Its 2017 stop being cheap!"
Pros: "Nothing whatsoever"
Cons: "I was confused by the Brot"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "Plane is dated and a little crowded"
Pros: "Original depart for London was 3:15, but when I called from Praque and my friend called from NY we were both told that depart from London is 2:15 and arrival is at 5 instead at 6. It was a mess!"
Cons: "Original depart from London was at 3:15 and arrival in NY was at 6pm. But when my friend called from NY about the arrival he was told that the plane will arrive at 5. I was told the same when I called from Praque. I have to stress that we mentioned the right flight #. When I came to the gate (exhausted) we departed after 3pm as originally scheduled. It was a mess! Otherwise the service was good."
Cons: "Liked it all."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice. Pilot kept us updated on our delayed departure."
Cons: "The departure was delayed due to maintainence issues. Every time that occurs, there are long delays to complete the paperwork. No problem with wanting a well maintained plane, but there should be some quicker way to complete the documentation."
Pros: "American Sirlines flight # AA1249. Was a poor experience. Flight was over an hour late due to flight crew had not arrived. The plane was too small for such a long flight Los Angeles to Atlanta. Took an hour to collect our baggage from baggage claim. I will try to Avoid American Airlines on the future."
Cons: "Small plane with no leg room"
Pros: "Flight delayed which allowed us to make connection after long runway and customs delays. Crew friendly and helpful. Prompt cabin service. Baggage brought quickly in SAT. Clean plane. Power source."
Cons: "Local pickup at SAT is now devoted to taxi. Airport police rude. Most people picked up at 11PM and hard for cars to get to curb or see passenger due to taxi line. Both terminals terrible after several experiences in last couple months. SAT worst pickup experience that I see national and international travel. Obvious that cabs and air port police are the worst congestion problem I experience."
Cons: "Flight was late. More than doubled my layover time"
Cons: "I was unable to get this flight and rebooked onto a United flight that was denatured 4 hours."
Cons: "Read my review of my denver to dallas amd youll understand.."
Cons: "This flight was canceled 9 minutes before we were supposed to board. I was rescheduled twice more and ended up at a DIFFERENT destination, 8 hours after I was supposed to arrive. I will not be flying American Airlines anytime soon."
Pros: "Great nonstop, friendly crew"
Cons: "Our bag was tagged as Priority, and was literally the last one off the plane. We clearly have different definitions of that word."
Pros: "Great movies"
Cons: "Very cramped seats"
Pros: "Better staff"
Cons: "Still terrible"
Cons: "All of my fligts has been delayed and resceduled, so instead of 18 hours to go to hawaii, it took me 36h"
Pros: "Comfortable airplane even in economy. All on time and good service."
Pros: "Having about an hour and 20 minutes left me with enough time to explore the airport from one gate to the other without feeling terribly rushed."
Cons: "The ONLY thing negative that I can say is that the Chicago airport had no charging stations at my gate."
Pros: "Nice flight. Easy check-in and boarding, friendly staff"
Pros: "Free Movies."
Cons: "Got delayed 3+ hours. No food on flight. No leg room."
Pros: "I’m still in Lincoln every united flight other than those our of Chicago have been delayed by 5-7 hrs and or canceled it’s been the worst trip iv ever taken"
Cons: "I’m still in Lincoln every united flight other than those our of Chicago have been delayed by 5-7 hrs and or canceled it’s been the worst trip iv ever taken"
Pros: "flight left and arrived on time. boarding process was quick."
Cons: "the drinks cart took an hour to reach my aisle. it would have been nice for them to have had 2 carts to speed up that process. the seats are marginally more comfortable than those on a discount airline."
Pros: "The United systems were at the top of their game for this trip."
Cons: "Equipment & crews were present & working like a well oiled machine. As a result we arrived at SFO early enough we didn’t have to run from G-69 to E-66 where boarding had already begun."
Cons: "The plane was very small and crammed"
Pros: "Attendents were very nice."
Cons: "My united app didnt find my flight;"
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Even with a nearly hour delay to switch planes, the captain and crew were very good at keeping people informed of the situation. The plane we were supposed to be on was having mechanical issues and rather than waiting until we were boarded and sitting on the plane until the issues were resolved (which coincidentally happened on my earlier flight for 1.5 hrs) the stopped boarding, which made a bad situation a little less crummy."
Cons: "Being delayed an hour for an red-eye flight sucks no matter what the circumstances, but better safe than sorry"
Pros: "Take off and landing very good"
Pros: "First through all the issues I will say that the staff was nice and helped us the best they could to fix what went wrong. Except one thing..."
Cons: "The flight to Chicago got delayed due to weather (not Uniteds fault), then got stuck in Sioux Falls due to need for gas (also not Uniteds fault), but when we finally got to Chicago and got told we couldn't continue on to our destination for two days United refused to get us a hotel room. They said that since no one had entered the mechanical failure that made us stay in Sioux Falls (also not Uniteds fault) that they couldn't give us rooms at a hotel. What a crock. We ended up having to borrow money from my in laws to be able to afford a hotel room for 2 days."
Pros: "This new ticket where you have basic economy and pay for everything is ridiculous. You can't take a high end airlines and make it a basic economy people don't like that. Is this the worse version of Spirit airlines?"
Cons: "Just feels Cheap. Baggage claim took forever"
Cons: "NO INTERNET!!!"
Pros: "The ticket staff. The only thing about the Harlingen airport is that it needs more than a couple of exray machines ....the Valley is woefully behind in staff training and technology. It took forever to get through the short lines...it was too long of a wait."
Cons: "The way that a couple of young AA men who were biligirent, combative and vulgar upset about their seat assignments. I told one of the young men to stop using vulgarity and no way to treat the lady that was doing her job, she continued treating them with courtesy and they kept mumbling under their breath God knows what. So young and already so bitter. They were towering over her and took a confrontational stance...she finally called security. I would not allowed them on the plane. I commend the young lady there in Harlingen."
Pros: "Since the plane was an hour late, many with connecting flights worried about making their connections. It'd be helpful if there was a way to communicate with flights to know whether one would make the connection or not. trying to get off the plane in a hurry is stressful."
Cons: "The fact that as a 6ft person at 180lbs could barely fit in the seat is unacceptable.. I rather fly spirit for that"
Pros: "Delay, delays delayed !!!"
Cons: "Definitely delayed"
Cons: "Seat wouldn't recline and I was having a broken leg in a cast I had to keep straight"
Cons: "2hrs late"
Pros: "The staff was nice and professional"
Cons: "Why should we have to pay extra to have a little extra leg room? Aren't fares high enough? Also, I had a credit for directv but was charged again."
Pros: "I liked how we had no delay we took off when we was supposed to and we got there sooner them scheduled"
Cons: "I liked that I could handle the seats I have back problems and was still comfortable to me had no problems at all on the flight"

Cons: "The same problem as with the other flight: no headrest tabs and not much leg room."
Pros: "Poor. They forced me to check my luggage bag and now it is broken."
Pros: "Willingness to go above and beyond to provide superb customer service. Cut my layover from 10 hours to 2 hours. Excellent"
Pros: "I'm shocked to find united airlines uses such thin seats. You can pay for upgrade but those seats are the normal old seats that weren't comfortable to begin with. Now the seats are even worst."

Pros: "Not impressed with United - they are just going down hill in evert aspect"
Cons: "Not impressed with United - they are just going down hill in evert aspect"

Cons: "The flight got cancelled"
Pros: "This airline is better than most of the others."
Cons: "It was the last seat of the plane, didn't recline smelled the bathroom..very uncomfortable for 4 hors and stunk"
Cons: "Had to navigate stairs"
Pros: "The price was right and the flight was direct"

Pros: "on time everything was good"
Cons: "the ac was so strong too cold"
