I liked that flight attendants always make sure people have masks on and properly covering their mouths and noses. I dislike that when the plane lands people are not maintaining social distancing in the aisle. Attendants should make a way to ask people out of their seats systematically.

Pros: "Layflat bed"
Cons: "Turkish airlines desk crew in DC. Really old aircraft with problems with recliner in business class from IST to LHE. Wooo likely not fly Turkish airlines in future"
Cons: "Crew could have been more friendly."
Pros: "The food was great, customer service also good and price is Afordable"
Pros: "Onboard the flight service was fine."
Cons: "The crew at check-in & at boarding checked me in to fly to Tel-Aviv (transiting at Istanbul) without any comment on visa or passport at Washington D.C. In Istanbul, I was not allowed to board on the flight to Tel-Aviv. I was not allowed to stay in Istanbul. Crew (Erin Uler) who stopped me from boarding the flight said he would help, but disappeared. Othes kept sending me back and forth between transfer desk and sales desk with inconsistent advice every time. I had no way out, so decided I will fly to the closest European country. This was after I had been back and forth for 7 hours. I had to pay full for flight to Greece. I asked to be sent back to D.C. they could not even work that out. I have a return ticket to fly back to Washington D.C. with Turkish Airline on 1 Jan and they said they will need to re-ticket my paid return flight as well. Turkish airline crew did not would not help me fix my return flight back to D.C. They have asked me to contact the agent ( Kayak). Now I am stuck in Athens, a country I have never visited nor planned to. My tours & accommodation, all paid for in Israel, I have lost. I had a tour fully paid in Israel. I have no ticket to return back to D.C. even though I paid for ticket with cancellation insurance when I bought the ticket. The advice between Turkish crew who checked my passport (official) while I was flying out of D.C. vs the Turkish crew who stopped me from boarding was inconsistent. If I had been stopped in D.C. I wouldn't have had to face the events that followed. Now I have lost my tours, hotel in Israel. I had to pay extra for flight to Athens and I am paying for hotel and sundry in Athens while waiting for flight out. Turkish crew at Istanbul were not only unhelpful but rude and inconsistent. While I was waiting for 8 hours for a firm information, shouting matches between Turkish crew and customers went on at least a dozen times. Inconsistent information from Turkish staff has led me to be currently stuck in Athens. I am waiting for a way back to D.C. There should be a rule that fines an airline if they board people without accurate visa papers and they fail to check it. There should also be a fine to the airline if they stop people from boarding at a transit airport leaving passanger stranded with nowhere to go or return. I ask this issue to be looked at, as I am currently stuck in Athens. I need a ticket to go back to D.C."
Pros: "Specially food service and also boarding"
Cons: "They checked carry on again even you passed from the counter I felt very bad about this"
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Nothing. I guess the fact that I made it to Israel?"
Cons: "Your incompetent agents messed up my reservation multiple times. They called my home and emailed asking for a payment, even though my client bought the ticket for me. Then, when I was checking in I realized my name was wrong even though my client has a document that proves she typed the right name. Finally, and AGAIN KAYAK, I arrive at the airport and Turkish Air says the ticket is booked but not ticked. So I had to jump on a 30min wait over the phone trying to solve issue after issue. Never doing business again with Kayak."
Pros: "Easy booking on Kayak! Good service overall."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, it was really hot! Not enough air conditioners."
Pros: "I had empty seats next to me"
Cons: "The guy that checked me in was very rude and wasn’t smiling at all and then he showed my passport picture to his colleague and they both started laughing. I was trying to use the restroom on the plane but there was a person in there for a long time; I waited outside patiently and then when I got in I brushed my teeth and used the toilet. It didn’t take me that long but the flight attendant knocked hard on the door but she didn’t do that for me with the other guy. I didn’t feel welcomed at all from the crew honestly."
Cons: "The head phones are terrible."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment options!"
Cons: "The crew seemed to be pretty busy"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Excellent employees from check in desk to flight attendants"
Cons: "Food quality was medicore"
Cons: "There was no child meal dispite us ordering it."
Pros: "The food and entertainment were okay."
Cons: "The staff was rude. The entertainment consoles didn’t work well."
Pros: "Entertainment was great, crew were polite and attentive"
Cons: "Not enough leg room for anyone over 6ft tall"
Pros: "The food is not bad, and the crew was good. The in flight entertainment selections were also good."
Cons: "The seats are too small to recline for someone who is about 185cm tall. I was not able to sleep, in spite of the late hour of the flight. Had a one hour layover in Istanbul, and the gates were at opposite sides of the crowded airport, which made the connection difficult."
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "Took too long. Build a transporter soon"
Pros: "The food was excellent."
Cons: "The middle seat was cramped."
Pros: "The entertainment was excellent!"
Cons: "The comfort level for that long of a flight was very poor. Seats are way too close together. There is no knee room from the seats at the front at all. People operating their video monitor is a disturbing fact for the passengers who sits in front of them."
Pros: "In flight entertainment is great! Good selection of movies, nice screens."
Cons: "No vents at seats on Airbus 300, AC was set at high temp so I was frequently way to warm to be comfortable. This is on both our main flight to Istanbul and our short transfer to Athens. Drink service did not start until 2 1/2 hours into flight. You get what you pay for I suppose. Still 10.5 on a hot plane!!! I usually need a jacket. Food was ...awful."
Cons: "Very small space"
Cons: "My flight was delayed, and the wrong gate was initially listed for my connecting flight, causing me to miss my flight. I asked to transfer to the next flight, but the staff there argued with me and refused to do so, saying I must purchase another ticket. I was forced to purchase a visa, go through passport processing, and purchase a new ticket that cost nearly as much as my entire round trip ticket from the US. I then had to pay to stay overnight in a hotel and had to make alternate arrangements to meet my hosts when I finally reached my destination."
Pros: "Service is good as well as food."
Cons: "The space. The transatlantic leg was awful because the space was really limited. From IST to my final destination the leg room increased"
Cons: "Seats were horrible - I've never been so uncomfortable on an international flight. Also, seat was broken and I couldn't push it back for sleeping. Flight attendant tried to help be but seat was broken"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment- plenty of things to watch and listen to. Food was good. I also enjoyed the service, hot towels and friendliness of staff. Overall, it was a great experience!"
Cons: "Sitting next to many kids who were very noisy and messy. They completely trashed the bathrooms which did not make it fun for me to use after them. This is just what I did not like- I understand this is no fault of the airlines or their staff. I am just more aware that several Turkish families may fly back and forth with their children and as a passenger, you may be seated close to them on the plane- just a thought."
Pros: "Service was exceelent and all crew staff were professional and friendly and courteous."
Cons: "We end up spending almost 1,200 use extra to reach Washington and return to Yaounde."
Cons: "the employees at the check in booth were so rude and unhelpful. I needed a wheelchair because I had a very bad backache, but they refused to help me and they made me wait standing up in line for over 2 hours. It was a very painful experience."
Pros: "Turkish Airlines remains my favorite - boarding process is organized, seats are comfortable, food is good, and crew is friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The food was decent, as well as the movie selection."
Cons: "The crew were incredibly rude, it was badly organised, there we delays on our flights, the boarding process was a nightmare. After booking both mine and my boyfriend's tickets we were later warned that there will be an 8 hour lay over instead of the expected 3 hour (as booked). I will try my very best to avoid Turkish Airlines in the future. After taking many long haul flights in my life, I can safely say that this was my worst and most disorganised travel."
Pros: "Easy checking reasonable wait."
Pros: "I liked the food and the Entertainment on board. The board crew was friendly and had always a smile."
Cons: "The crew wasn't able to speak in German, even though they spoke perfect English."
Pros: "Loved the entertainment center and options. Loved the frequency of beverage service. The slippers and eye cover for sleeping."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great"
Pros: "I liked everything"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "I booked my flight with Turkish Airlines for June 28th at 11:05 pm. A few hours before my flight, there were bombings in the airport in Istanbul, which was where I was flying into. I tried for hours to contact Turkish Airlines and their phone was disconnected. I could not reach anyone to try to re-schedule a new flight or to ask if the flight was going to be re-directed. I received no information and ended up having to book a new flight for the next day. After my flight had already left Turkish Airlines posted on their website an alert. I am shocked that it took so long to post any information and I am very upset that I was unable to reach customer service. I will NOT be choosing this airline to fly on again."
Pros: "Excellent service and food."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Service was outstanding!"
Cons: "I have no complaints!"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Rude stewardess"
Pros: "This was my first time flying with Turkish Airlines, and I had a great experience. I travel internationally a lot and it has been by far the best airline I have been on. I love flights that give you a hot towel when you arrive, so that was a big plus in my book. The flight stewards were so helpful both on and off the flight. The food was delicious. Movie selections were freat ad well."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "I like everything. Flight was so good."
Cons: "I like everything."
Pros: "Food was great as well as entertaiment."
Cons: "I'm 6.2 There is no leg room for tall people. It was very uncomfortble 10 hours red eye flight. Crew was just ok."
Pros: "Other than what I've mentioned below, everything was great."
Cons: "It was a pretty physically uncomfortable flight. My seat wouldn't recline even a tiny bit and it was a 9+ hour flight. The flight attendant tried to help but was unable to get it to move either."
Cons: "Food disaster always same Organisations very bad"
Pros: "The flight was smooth, the crew was great, as was the food. I am never comfortable sitting on a plane for 9 hours. The overall experience was very positive."
Cons: "Crsmp seating,"
Pros: "Once on board, the service is very good!"
Cons: "Very long lines and long waiting time to check in."
Pros: "Noting"
Cons: "Firs they told me there is a fligth at 11:15 pm and when i get to the airport they delay the fligth to next day morning with out notice when i call customer cervice i ask for a hotel they just dont care and they have no suggestion"

SAS canceled flight the day before we were to head to Athens to catch our cruise ship. No warning whatsoever from Kayak or SAS. We only found out when we tried to check in and in red letters it said "Canceled". Kayak states they never received any message from SAS regarding this cancellation. SAS decided just to change our flights for the next day which was very unsatisfactory. NEVER AGAIN! Turkish Airlines is the way to go!

The staff onboard between IAD and Copenhagen was not friendly

Pros: "Crew was very friendly and helpful. Entertainment had plenty of choices."
Cons: "The seats were very hard. It was very uncomfortable sitting that long I’m those seats"
Pros: "that there was a water and a blanket on each seat!"
Cons: "I thought there was free alcohol on international flights. that you were not allowed to use the given blanket until after take off."
Cons: "Noise in aircraft. Transit time between flights was too short."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled without explanation"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "I was unable to make it to copenhagen due to missing my connection"
Pros: "The airplane was modern and well kept. The crew were attentive and kind."
Cons: "Nothing - our flight out was great!"
Pros: "Overall, an incredible experience!!!"
Cons: "The food was excellent"
Pros: "I have used Kayak for years without issue. This time I was flying SAS for the first time. The plane broke and so that was the first huge delay SAS had terrible customer service. They reminded me several times that I was not a preferred customer and that I had bought my ticket through kayak. This is the reason they gave for lack of help. It was frustrating to say the least. I’m not sure how they expect to gain repeat customers if they treat first time customers like that."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Everything. Our flight was delayed from our departing city because the plane was leaking water on the floor and they had to send in a special cleaning crew to try to stop it. We were not given the seats we pre picked months before when buying the ticket. The ac was broken for the first half of the flight. Then, we missed our connecting flight because of the first delay. Once we got onto a new connecting flight, it was also delayed and once again, we missed our last connecting flight and are not making it to our final destination today."
Pros: "Food was okay. Very smooth landing"
Cons: "Crew. One of the flight attendants was unfriendly and short when asked about food options. None of them were approachable."
Cons: "Tiny, hard, uncomfortable seats and cramped conditions, just about the worst 8 hours in my life"
Pros: "Everything was done quite well - not too fussy. Limited free drinks options on a transatlantic flight perhaps being the only possible complaint."
Cons: "Limited free drink options on a transatlantic flight."
Cons: "Rude crew, and apparently now you only get one free nonalcoholic drink in Economy for an 8 hour flight."
Cons: "Pay for a coke?"
Pros: "Decent movie selection and very smooth landing"
Cons: "Surprised that Asian airlines typically havr larger and more comfortable seats. The SAS flight was fully booked and you could feel the cramped-ness of it. Also we weren't given the choice of what to have for our meals and were merely handed our food. Lastly, the flight was very, very uncomfortably warm."
Pros: "The crew is great. Did everything within their abilities to be comfortable"
Cons: "The cabin was too warm for the duration of the flight. The movie content wasn't that great. Also, the headphone jack on my seat was temperamental and I lost sound quite a bit. I wish they had more vegetables in their dish"
Pros: "The comfort and technology on the aircraft."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Not full. Kind crew."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "I was running late to my flight, and I found the SAS customer service line exceptionally helpful in helping me make the right decisions regarding how best to deal with the risk of missing my flight. In the end, I made my flight in time, but I found customer service critical in making the best decisions regarding my pre-flight transportation. Additionally, the flight was smooth and enjoyable."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was so amazing and friendly!!"
Cons: "Crew not very friendly."
Cons: "Should at least serve some water"
Pros: "Seats are more comfortable than those of many other airlines."
Cons: "Normally, I am not picky regarding airline food. In SAS's economy or "Go" class, there is no choice of food. I can think of plenty of dishes that would be appealing to many people. Yet the meal that was served, beef stew, posed a problem as I don't eat red meet. Since many people also do not eat beef due to religious beliefs, I am appalled by SAS's decision to only serve this dish to its economy class passengers. As I ordered my ticket through Kayak, I didn't have the option to request a special diet, nor did I think to do so as airlines generally do not serve serve a beef dish as their one and only."
Pros: "Good leg room. Tasty meals. A good variety of entertainment options."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, I'm a Star Alliance Gold member so was able to get on board first. There were significant delays leaving Dulles and our connection was tight, but SAS held the flight so I give them props for that."
Cons: "The crew was grumpy and unhelpful, but I can usually overlook that. What really got me was this: YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR BEER & WINE ON THIS INTERNATIONAL FLIGHT! Never in my 25 years of international travel have I seen this from a mainstream carrier. For this fact alone, I will never fly this airline again. You also have to pay to pick your seats in advance."
Pros: "I had a window seat with a view of New York City as we flew North."
Cons: "The sound quality of the earphones was so poor that I could not understand most of the dialogue of the film that I watched."
Pros: "service was good"
Cons: "The plane was full. Sets in economy were very small."
Pros: "The entertainment system was very good. The crew were all efficient and courteous, with the exception of one crew member who was rather curt."
Cons: "Our plane arrived at IAD late due to a minor mechanical that was repaired at its previous destination. Consequently, we departed IAD almost two hours late, causing us to miss our connection in Copenhagen. Norwegian Air had a flight leaving shortly from Copenhagen to Rome, but the transfer agent told us SAS "does not re-book with Norwegian." Instead we were assigned to two more flights, one to Brussels, and another from Brussels to Rome. We arrived in Rome around 17:00 rather than 10:35 as scheduled, losing a full day of sight-seeing."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Good food. Movie/tv options were excellent."
Cons: "Didn't like that I had to order vegetarian food option in advance. I would forget to do so before the flight. Despite that, I was still able to eat most of the meal since there was salad, bread and dessert which was filling enough."
Pros: "Timely or even earlier arrival. Generally, very good experience"
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "Delay after delay. Screaming kid"
Cons: "In-flight entertainment did not work, veggie meal I ordered was not there, and when I asked if I could have one of the extra business class meals, I was told no. I further asked if I could just have some chips from the snack basket and that was met with a death glare from the female flight attendant. All in all, the flight attendants were rude and unwilling to accept any ownership in the poor conditions of this 9 hour flight."
Pros: "Modern plane, great entertainment system"
Cons: "Paying for booze, vegetarian breakfast is awful."
Cons: "Small and tight seats."
Cons: "The plane was very old and not maintained well, dirty and not clean from the previous flights"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane."
Cons: "No free alcohol. Limited food options."
Cons: "Not very many current movies, very cramped."
Cons: "Seats are allowed to recline to far. When you are sitting behind someone who has reclined their seat you have no room"
Pros: "Great aircraft, good food, awesome crew, very comfortable seats, the entertainment was really good. Overall super pleased. Hopefully it'll be the same on our return back to DC"
Cons: "Unfriendly and rude desk help. Rude and insulting. United was a real disappointment. I will ask my travel agent to be in touch re screw up the economy plus seats. I had to pay extra for what our itinerant said had been booked. Mary, at the desk at C12 in Delles, she wouldn't give me her last name was unbelievably insulting and unhelpful."
Cons: "Too much meat in meals."
Pros: "Flight was fine, service good, and our seat choice excellent."
Cons: "We left an iPad on board in Copenhagen and found that there was no way to inform SAS!"
Pros: "Smooth"
Cons: "Nada"
Cons: "No individual seat control of airflow. The plane was very warm and there were no vents at each seat."
Pros: "Attendants allowed any standing to ease weary legs as long as it was out of the way."
Pros: "All of it."
Cons: "None of it."
Pros: "Old airplanes, no cellphone chargers, my monitor didn't work at all so they gave me an Iphad......"
Cons: "Old airplanes, you have to pay for alcohol...."
Cons: "I was bumped off. So I liked nothing about that SAS flight."

Very nice experience with Finnair, especially transatlantic flights. Professional crew, excellent service, scheduled on time, headache free environment, very clean and looks like new airplane. Only positive emotions. However, the aircrafts on domestic or short range flights look outdated, and definitely there is room for service improvement.

I was impressed with Iberia! Would definitely fly again!

Pros: "The crew was very attentive, helpful and wonderful. I’d like to mention food too: excellent, fresh and wholesome!"
Pros: "Fell asleep and didn’t even realise. Finnair is very friendly and the staff are super nice. I was very thirsty and asked for two cups of water instead of one and the lady was not hesitant to give me two cups in quick succession. Very good air company"
Cons: "Nothing really too bad, you get what you expected. May of been nice to have a free sandwich as it’s a non stop flight - this is because Lufthansa has one stopover and offers a free sandwich and drink."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They canceled the flight after 5 hours of us sitting on the plane. They sent us away and told us to check back in in the morning. There’s been no communication since. I’m still at the airport. It’s been 16+ hours."

Cons: "The food was way overcooked!"
Pros: "Flew on new A350, liked the seat TV, live map/camera. Good selection of entertainment."

Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 2 hrs, told we would get a snack then they changed their minds"
Pros: "The staff was professional and friendly. The waits were short on boarding."

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Late change gate number. Automatic info-terminal can't read my boarding pass. Not possibility enter flight number ( AY6 - only digits, no letters) Please make WiFi low speed free. Please be atention: more than half passengers russian - there no any muvy russian audio or subtitle on TV Don't show fly with short (30min) transfering"
Cons: "We didn't get from Helsinki to Dublin we were redirect via Paris."
Cons: "Sellling snacks during the flight (to a captive clientele) makes the process noticibly less pleasant than in the days when Finnair (generously) provided snacks to everyone."

Pros: "I liked service very much."

Pros: "The onground staff at CDG was nice. The bus ride to the planes was not."

Pros: "The crew were trying to help and accommodate the bad situation."
Cons: "Couldn't check in online 24 hours ahead. When called Finnair on the phone, they couldn't check us in, told us we have to check in at counter, by then all good seats were taken and I couldn't sit next to my husband, and this is our honeymoon trip. It's a full flight and All upgrades were booked by then so couldn't even upgrade to business class. Requested a gluten free meal, no crew can figure out it that meal was on board (not in system nor on paper list), so at the end no food for me. I have been dying BA for last five years and this had to be the worst BA flight I have taken, absolute chaos at the check in counter and no organization. One BA counter agent Alexa tried to help but it is just too late. I expected more from BA."

Pros: "Food was good and service excellent"
Cons: "The plane was very unconfortable"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight being changed three times and delayed multiple times. Not weather related. To top it off, the airline decides to leave my bag in the states because the flight was changed and I didn’t notify them; which of course is ignorant because they changed the flight and didn’t even notify me."

Pros: "Crew in club was excellent. Could not ask for more."

Pros: "After 18 hours of travel I just slept on this flight. Got on, fastened my seat belt, and don't remember take off or landing!! But the plane was MUCH cleaner and nicer than our international flight."
Cons: "Flight crew was a bit loud and it woke me up a couple of times, but it was at 2 pm. So I didn't expect them to be quiet."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "It was late, it was cramped, they make you pay for everything suitcases, soft drinks, the lot, next time we will consider who we spend our hard earned cash with Disappointing as I am a real advocate for BA"
Pros: "Pilot gave good communication of flight progress, and arrived early."
Cons: "Slow boarding and disembarkation processes."
Cons: "Crew took bags before we boarded. We had a 2-hour connection and they would not let us CARRY ON our CARRY ON baggage. This made it extremely difficult to make our flight on time. Also, the guy was terribly rude about it"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "We had to pay 55 euro for a checked bag. Since when do you not get one checked bag for free. Also had to pay for a coffee"
Pros: "Nothing in particular but it was positive."
Cons: "It was quite crowded but still fine. I would have appreciated a snack and a drink but this is not a reason to be disappointed."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Boarding an absolute chaos, rude ignorant staff, old dirty airplane"
Cons: "Long lay over"
Pros: "First the flight was delayed, as it was the flight going to London. Then, BA staff did not provide timely information, and were disorganized without giving clear instructions to board the plane."
Pros: "We got to Barcelona safely"
Cons: "Paying for something basic to drink is something you'd espect on Spirit airlines not British Airways. The cabin crew and gate agents were rude and inconsistent with their behavior. They used to be full of class and unfortunately they are now trash. If I have other choices I will most certainly not choose BA."
Pros: "Very clean jet and friendly crew"
Cons: "No entertainment or complimentary meals"
Cons: "Misleading about food policy."
Cons: "Crew was virtually invisible. Entertainment system very dated."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Food bland and limited choice Do not like the new bottle service in Club Service slow Seats very uncomfortable and less seat pitch than on other airlines"
Pros: "More space than newer airplanes."
Cons: "No onboard entertainment."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No food Uncomfortable seats Rude staff Very overpriced"
Pros: "Very spacious seats Incredible amount of legroom Professional staff/flight crew Quick and easy flight"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "The space on the seat"
Cons: "No screens to help time pass, enjoy watching movies on the longer trips. Offer a "snack" and free small drink would be helpful. Pretzels or chips. Explaining customs would be helpful for those of us who don't travel. Cramped seating."
Cons: "Plane was late boarding, updates were not prompt."
Pros: "The crew was really nice and the food too"
Cons: "The only thing not that good is that The comfort of The seats and The legroom was not The bestia, at leas not for a long flight like this pone."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly."
Cons: "Seats on the flight London to Barcelona weren't as comfortable but it's not fair as it's just the model of airplane. Although modern seats just weren't that good to try catch some sleep."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "They ran out of food. Did not get a choice"
Pros: "Quick and painless"
Pros: "Peaceful"
Cons: "Delay. Poor food."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 4 hours because maintenance needed to change a tire on the airplane. The delay would have been acceptable if it wasn't for the excuses the airline offered. First, they said maintenance couldn't find a spare tire, and when they did rob a tire from another plane, they said the delay was due to FAA paperwork. These reasons, most likely true, suggest American Airlines (British Airways sub-contracted this flight to its partner, American Airlines) was not prepared to handle such an emergency."
Pros: "I made it safely to Barcelona"
Cons: "Where shall I begin? The crew was ok, makes me miss flying JetBlue, the crew can learn a lot from them in what customer service and friendly crew is about!!! In my opinion, if they had the chance to learn, this crew would be the same as they are, because it feels like, get them in and complete the shift. The seat was so uncomfortable that I spent the entire 9 hrs awake. The entertainment was terrible. When watching a movie you can't simply start it when you want so if you miss show time when it started you have to begin where it is...I hope that 1st class is different than what it feels like to ride in coach because it makes me feel like steerage! I most certainly would not take this airline to Europe unless I had better accommodations because being in the coach section sucks!"
Pros: "Everything was on time. The plane was kind of full but the flight attendants really tried to reseat passengers that wanted to change their seats. To me, that's above and beyond, being in the service industry myself. The entertainment was really diverse and offered many options. The food was good and the red wine was excellent. The pilot gave us regular updates about the flight and the weather in Barcelona, our destination. The seats were roomy and comfortable. Restrooms were very clean."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant"
Cons: "Sold as a BA flight but it wasn't BA but Vueling a subsidiary of BA. This is in the small print and feels like a deliberate misleading statement. Far worse than other budget airlines like easy jet. Poor organisation and lack of staff with adequate training resulted in lack of information, long queues at check in and delays with take off and baggage collection. Practically queued for 2 hours. Make sure you arrive at least 2 30 hours before check in or you may miss your flight."
Pros: "After I got my flight it was easy to get my luggage and everything."
Cons: "There was a lot of delays for the boarding of this flight. The gates also close early and didnt want to let me in."
Pros: "Great, easy trip. Nice plane, smooth skies."
Cons: "Your seats are too small, but we know the airline industry is not gonna do anything about it."
Pros: "Flight was mostly empty and it’s a short trip."
Cons: "Everything AA did nothing right."
Pros: "One flight attendant who was on a plane not scheduled for this flight (much smaller plane than scheduled) so lots of people left behind. Don't know her name but she had the best personality and really took care of a lot of people not happy being late of stuffed into a very small plane."
Cons: "Delays happen but DCA is a pretty big hub not to have a big enough plane to get passengers on board who are already delays. You had to pay $700 vouchers to a whole bunch of folks so whatever profit was possible went to vouchers instead."
Pros: "The boarding was quick and easy and the lights were dimmed as it was a red eye flight. Couldn't have asked for anything more."
Cons: "The salad was included two unmentioned items that were unwelcome: bleu cheese and pasta."
Pros: "The pilot did great job.brought us before time."
Cons: "Pay extra for bag :( No video screen No food The check in area was mooved without notice."
Cons: "We made reservations on Premium economy which was overbooked so we did not get a seat assignment until reaching the gate. However they upgraded us to business class so we were delighted."
Pros: "no"
Cons: "on time departure"
Pros: "Quick flight with no delays"
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "Arrived early. Friendly pilot."
Cons: "Attendant did not offer snack choice."
Pros: "Nice seats with plenty of leg room. Friendly crew. Smooth flight."
Pros: "People were friendly"
Cons: "Broke arm off wheelchair"
Cons: "This flight was delayed by almost 5 hours. While I understand there are some delays sometimes, this was the ONLY flight to Greensboro out of DCA, and the times kept changing throughout the day, even though the gate agents knew that the issue was that the crew was delayed. There should be backup crew available and when there are delays, the passengers should be kept informed. There should be other flight options available when this happens. I never received an apology from anyone I encountered throughout the process, and some personnel were rude even though I was polite."
Pros: "My flight was delayed and expected to delay further and the attendants put me on another flight to get there before my connecting flight."
Cons: "My bags never made it and when I arrived, I was told that one of my bags was still at my departure airport and the other wasn’t scanned."
Pros: "Pleasant service ; courteous team"
Cons: "Flight delayed"
Cons: "The cabin crew on the flight to Barcelona acted like they really didn't want to be there. From telling me that they'd serve everyone when they had the chance when I asked for water to shouting down the aisles to each other while passengers tried to sleep and having an overall feeling of being incredibly stressed out by basic requests (a bottle of water, help operating the entertainment screen, etc), they made the flight decidedly less enjoyable than an intercontinental flight in economy class already is. They were not rude to me personally, more just disinterested and apathetic, but I did witness one of the flight attendants being downright rude to another passenger. This was not a British Airways crew, but an American Airlines crew, and they treated us like they were doing us a favor by paying us any attention rather than treating us like it is their job to serve passengers courteously."
Cons: "Horribly bumpy the whole time, no drink service because it was so shaky"
Pros: "Everything except TSA, my daughter 14, had a precheck. TSA sent her through, and made me go in separate much slower lne. She was upset and scared, which upset me."
Pros: "Liked the crew. The flight was on time and went as expected. We are safe and happy so can’t get much better right?"
Cons: "Didn’t like the credit card advertising announcement over the intercom and then again by the crew. The lack of food and snack options was pretty sad but that’s par for the course nowadays. One of my pet peeves: People boarded with out verification of their boarding pass location. By the time we boarded, 90% of the plane was loaded and we were in the middle. Luckily that had no impact but annoying bc people are trying to get their overhead bins before they run out, which they did."
Pros: "We were 40 minutes delayed but received good communication and had an uneventful flight otherwise."
Cons: "There was no one at the ticket kiosk located by TSA and no sign that said they would be back or to go to another booth. After waiting 10 minutes I️ went upstairs and found a chaotic mass of people checking in at the actual open kiosk. The check in process was not clearly defined and even after spending 30 minutes checking a bag I️ still had to care my checked bag down to another TSA check line. In their boarding area there were minimal phone chargers. The plane was small and no leg room and a rigid uncomfortable seat. Also the flight was at night and they kept the cabin lights on. That was super frustrating to an exhausted traveler who was trying to sleep."
Pros: "Competent crew; flight arrived on time with my luggage."
Cons: "Plane was jammed full; so much so that even passengers like me, who paid to check one of my bags, still had to put my one carry-on under the seat in front of me instead of in an overhead compartment. I expected some legroom because I paid to check my bag. Unfortunately because of American Airlines I had next to no legroom. I'll be avoiding AA where possible on all of my future travels."
Pros: "The confort seat, and service"
Cons: "They broke a wheel on my luggage."
Cons: "Lost my luggage and flight delayed"
Pros: "I liked the entertainment, crew was very nice, I had no problems when boarding and dinner was fine."
Cons: "Breakfast was lacking, I did not enjoy anything I was given. A hot breakfast would be very nice or even bread with butter would have been a nice option."
Pros: "Little"
Cons: "Mechanical issues, late late late, bad communication, no apologies or compensation for huge waste of time."
Pros: "I love the fact I've flown with American Airlines 4 times over the last month and have not had any issues, delays or even an unfriendly face no matter the time or airport!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Pretty much everything"
Cons: "Late late cancelled chaos in reassignment late late One agent threw up hands said I'm done and left with long line of passengers not yet reassigned Person behind me asked why didn't we take Delta?"
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for 35 minutes without a single announcement as to why there was a delay."
Pros: "Food, OK legroom, complimentary wine & beer on a US carrier"
Cons: "Barely functioning ancient touchscreen system"
Pros: "Surprisingly the seats were not cramped as on other airplanesI have benn on"
Cons: "I wished there was no delay in Miami each way. Miami to Washington an overcrowded runway caused the delay"
Pros: "Good crew, everything efficient with no problems for getting from point A to point B."
Cons: "I really am starting to hate the CRJ-700. I dislike being packed into one with 50 of my closest friends I never knew."
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Pros: "Gate agent at DFW helped with a seat change so my wife and I could sit together--excellent seating in the exit row"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Both flights, to and from around had to go search for my baggage and on the return flight I even had to go to a different terminal. The service is unacceptable. I will never fly with AA again."
Pros: "Every single crew member was extremely helpful and friendly. Also the leg room was acceptable compared to similar airlines. Comfortable seats and smooth flight. We were even 20 minutes early to BCN!"
Cons: "The plane was very old and the entertainment was okay... That's if your screen worked, which mine did not. An 8 hour flight without entertainment is not the best scenario. Also, I know it wasn't just my screen that wasn't working."
Pros: "The entertainment system was good. It took mind mind off the 4 delays that occurred with the flight."
Cons: "4 delays that occurred with the flight. 45 minutes to board. 30 min to leave the gate. 30 min to takeoff and 30 min to get to the gate when we landed."
Cons: "Cancelled flight last minute and I was put on another flight hours later; with a 1.5 hour delay too; no credit or voucher provided"
Pros: "The plane was new and the leg room was worth the extra $20."
Cons: "No inflight entertainment and the seat did not recline. I guess there are pros and cons in the exit row. I also had no choice but to buy the more expensive seat since all others were taken at check-in."
Pros: "Please put n/a as an option. There was no entertainment for a flight lasting a little over an hour."
Pros: "All of it"
Cons: "America Airlines...worst service and just a horrible experience"
Pros: "Flight was delayed but boarding at DCA was very efficient and quick"
Cons: "Flight attendants seemed bothered by something and weren't very nice. They looked/seemed tired. Cabin lights were on the whole time for a ~3 hour flight which began at 830pm."
Cons: "The delay. My flight was suppossed to depart at 7:25pm and left at 9:30"
Pros: "All aspects of flight were perfect. Couldn't ask for anything more."
Cons: "Everything was perfect."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. It was very comfort and the seats are very good."
Cons: "They changed the terminal for departure three times. Every time it changed al lot of people had to take the shuttle between terminals again. I don't think it was American Airlines fault, but the la guardian airport was not really customer friendly"
Pros: "ON TIME I want to mention GLORIA who was the flight attendant from ORD to Reagan on my way out. She was funny and had us laughing. I flew out Tuesday June 28th but didn't take the survey for that flight."
