Pros: "Fast check-in & departure"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "They keep canceling our flight"

Cons: "Airline cancelled flight 4 days before return. Only option to return was the day before, so I lost the last night at the hotel.

Cons: "i had no problems honestly. my most pleasant flightin a while and i fly frequently"

Pros: "Smooth Flight great drinks and food"

Cons: "On my return flight home, they wouldn't accommodate adjusting my itinerary because I wasn't feeling well. I was willing to pay change fee for 1 layover instead of the 2 layovers on my original itinerary. They wanted to charge me $700 which was greater than my original ticket. So I flew on the original itinerary at started my travels @ 7am on Monday. Flight from Bogotá to Barranquilla w/Avianca airlines was great. In Barranquilla I had a 4 hr layover, checked in w/Copa agent and he said my bag was on plane. In Panama, there was a 1.5 hr layover so I assumed no issues getting my luggage to the correct connection. The flight from Panama was delayed by 40 mins w/no explanation. We just sat on plane. They only played one older movie, plane was old and they did 1 beverage service w/meal for a 5.5 hour flight. I finally arrived back to ORD @ 12:15 am Tuesday. I waited for my luggage in baggage claim for 35 mins. It doesn't arrive and I ask attendant, who brushes me off and says this is the claim for Copa. She disappears for 30-40 mins. I finally see her walking back into international baggage claim (over an hour has passed that I've been in baggage claim) and tell her my luggage did not arrive. She asks me for my claim ticket then proceeds to say "oh yes, I was informed your bag did not make it." I'm upset because it's 1:40am and she could have saved me an hour if she would have helped me when I first asked. I also am curious how an airline loses my bag twice."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Cabin crew based in South American countries don't speak a word of English."

Pros: "Good food"

Pros: "La atención"
Cons: "La comida"

Pros: "So much turbulence! Plus the flight attendant wasn't very friendly."

Cons: "The flight attendant was rude."

Pros: "Cordialidad"
Cons: "Comida"

Pros: "The crew was very nice onboard. Good entertainment"
Cons: "The airline personnel doing security check-in in Panama made up a TSA rule that doesn't exist and confiscated an *empty* plastic bottle from me that I was purposely saving, kinda irritating. The bathrooms were once again completely disgusting, eww."

Pros: "Again, went very smoothly."
Cons: "No complaints."

Cons: "No priority boarding for check in, Albright places were available I was put in almost the last row for my 3 flights that included short connections."

Pros: "Very good crew who were welcoming and attentive"
Cons: "We were placed at an international gate, had to wait for stairs (for the rear of the plane) and then a bus to the terminal. We arrived early but by the time we had waited for steps, bus etc, we were late!"

Cons: "The flight looked like it was British Airways. But it was actually operated by American Airlines. I selected seats in advance, but was not assigned to those seats."

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Old plane, no power chargers, cold during the flight"

Pros: "Crew was nice and friendly."
Cons: "The entertainment equipment needs to be updated. And the seats arrangements are not the best in term of privacy."

Pros: "Na"

Pros: "Good crew; no more or less better seating than other airlines we have used to the UK."

Pros: "We had two seats alone on the side, in row 51(!), with plenty of room and easy access (but not too close) to the loo. The Boeing 747 has aged well and was a bit more comfortable than the 787 Dreamliner we took over to Europe."
Cons: "Only downside was the clunky seatback entertainment screen, which probably looked bad 20 years ago when they put it in."

Pros: "Service and welcome was great."
Cons: "Entertainment system was old and screen was not working the first 2 hours."

Pros: "We were able to pre-board with our toddler."

Pros: "Very professional and friendly employees. Someone fainted in our cabin and the crew members took very professional care and offered the passenger oxygen."
Cons: "Very packed cabin, offered us just a sandwich after the first main meal."

Pros: "I made it"
Cons: "If I were a bit older or slower I wouldn’t have made plane. It is unfortunate I had two leg journey to Ireland. BWI - Heathrow- Dublin is a difficult journey with 1 hour layover. I nearly had to push old ladies out of the way to make connection. Very stressful and left headphones in haste to make flight. Not an enjoyable experience."

Pros: "Good crew and efficient service."
Cons: "Not the most comfortable business class seats. Had a hard time getting any sleep."

Pros: "Level of information"

Cons: "No food unless it was paid for even water!!! Such a cheap move and sucked being hungry the whole damn time Gate assigned late and very frustrating to find on other end of terminal with a train to take to find it and feeling like you’d miss plane!!"

Pros: "747s are good stable planes in flight"
Cons: "The greatest problem was dealing with the usual chaos and discomfort of traveling through Heathrow airport. Primitive and time-consuming transportation system between terminals- Had to ride overcrowded buses packed with so many people that your body was pressed against your neighbor. Inadequate number of restrooms and poor signage to find them. Bad selection of restaurants. Then at the terminal, boarding time listed as 10:40, but they did not even announce the boarding gate until 10:40. Then a 10 minute ride on another overcrowded bus to the plane which you had to board by a staircase (and a staircase to the door on a 747 is no small thing!) Although flight was smooth in the air, the pilot landed so "hard" I thought the landing gear must have been damaged!"

Cons: "Received a text telling me the flight was cancelled. Had no"

Pros: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "No comments"

Pros: "Friendly staff. The food was Ok. The flight was on time."
Cons: "People kept bumping into my shoulder but i guess there isn't much that can be done about it."

Pros: "The flight from London to BWI is convenient for people who live in PG County"
Cons: "The food and environment on the flight are boring"

Pros: "Crew were cooperative"
Cons: "There were no veg sandwiches."

Pros: "Ice cream. Nowday, on flight food is hard to find the tasty one."

Pros: "Crew were & very nice & polite!"
Cons: "Plane temperature was way too hot!!! Even the person next to me was complaining. Was very uncomfortable to try to sleep. The eggs we were served were horrible & overcooked."

Pros: "Staff were very busy as flight was full but still managed to be upbeat, funny and polite which always makes things nicer."
Cons: "Really frustrating that the passenger behind me spent most of the night waking me up jabbing the screen on the back of my chair- not much sleep was had . Not directly BA's fault but it would help if use of the REMOTE CONTROL was actively promoted to people- or get rid of the touch screen???. Being typical British I didn't complain there and then :/"

Pros: "The crew of British airlines were nice"
Cons: "Changed flight , couldn’t check in. I bought ticked on kayak but vayama was the actual ticket seller on behalf of Iberia which is a British airlines company. I couldn’t check and and customer service of vayama didn’t want to help and asked me to call Iberia. I called Iberia and after staying on hold for 40 min they told me to use the same confirmation number of Iberia flight on British airlines website. After a long day and a long and expensive uber ride I made it to sfo to see the flight has been delayed... never ever ever going to buy an international flight from Iberia, and very hesitant about kayak redirecting sales."

Pros: "Attention"

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"

Cons: "My main issue is that I wasn't adequately informed that it was a codeshare and that I could choose my seats ahead of time"

Cons: "Lounge needs updated."

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "great team. good snacks. great room."

Cons: "I always expect water to be handed out, but I guess this flight was too short so I had to ask for a cup of water. That's all. Not a big deal. They brought me water."

Pros: "It was a smooth flight and comfortable"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "The crew was amazing, especially when having to deal with a difficult passenger throughout the duration of the flight."
Cons: "There was a delay which inconvenienced a friend picking me up. Also, not a complaint, but I have experienced better video entertainment technology. But it's still amazing I get to watch movies while traveling in the air from one continent to another continent."

Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "Disappointed with the food choice"

Pros: "The quality of the food was amazing. Flight attendants were very helpful and pleasant. The movie options were also wonderful."
Cons: "It was difficult for me to get comfortable. The lights that shine from above us were shining directly on me for a row behind me and for the person sitting on my left. Boarding was somewhat unorganized as there were people boarding in 2 areas."

Cons: "My flight from BWI-JFK was cancelled due to weather related issues and was rebooked to BWI-MIA-MAD, 5 hours late from my original departure and without providing any meal voucher despite asking from the agent. BWI-MIA flight was delayed due to air traffic clearance from the thunderstorm and almost missed my connection MIA-MAD by few minutes. Upon arrival in MAD, my baggage didn't make the connection and had to wait for 3 days before my baggage arrived"

Cons: "We checked in exactly 2 hours and 30 minutes before scheduled departure time, as previously instructed when we attempted check-in some three-and-a-half hours before departure. Thus we were, I'm fairly certain, the second couple to check in for the entire flight. I asked the agent if the fare we paid allowed us a checked piece of luggage. She said that, yes, we were entitled to one checked piece per passenger at no charge. That being the case, I asked the agent to issue a refund for the two Checked Baggage fees my wife had paid online. She insisted there was nothing she could do about it and it was totally out of her hands. I explained to her my understanding that such refund must be requested PRIOR TO CHECK-IN, but she reiterated there was nothing she could do, and offered no solution whatsoever. In addition, the agent insisted that we were not allowed to carry-on a cabin bag in addition to a personal item. When I asserted my rights (See Note 1), she had the temerity to say "You should know British Airlines' policy if you buy a ticket." Trying another tack, I asked who DID get to use the overhead lockers, since they were only allowing under-seat sized Personal Items to be brought on-board. She replied that the "no cabin baggage" policy applied "after the first 30 passengers boarded the plane." (Please recall that we were the second couple ON THE ENTIRE PLANE to check-in, and thus should make that artificial "cut-off." (Also, as a Million Mile flyer with your partner, American Airlines, I believe we're entitled to Priority Boarding.) Concerned about the valuable items in the cabin bag she was effectively commandeering, I inquired about the airlines Limits of Liability in case of Loss or Damage. She said she had no idea. I then asked to see a copy of the airline's Conditions of Carriage. But she was either unable or unwilling to provide same. I arrived very, very early to ensure these sorts of problems could be ironed-out before departure, and am frankly appalled by the lack of knowledge, professionalism and judgement the airline exhibited in this instance. Also: On-board service was so incredibly slow, the last two rows were not served until 15 minutes prior to landing. ("There you go, sir. Bottoms up... and be quick about it! ;-) Bill B. Los Angeles, CA USA"

Pros: "We fly a lot, over 20 flights last year. I was very disappointed in this flight. No water was offered during the entire flight (2 and 1/2 hrs). We had to track down a steward to buy a bottle of water and some lunch. At checkin I was told my new suitcase, a Travel pro carryon was too big to take on. As we boarded I saw many people with bigger carryons. Who makes these rules so inconsistently? On the positive side, we had very comfortable seats, but I did pay extra for them!!"
Cons: "The landing was horrible. Skidded and rough, glad to get off this plane. Not sure I will fly BA again."

Pros: "Food) wine, entertainment, spacious, comfy seats (coach). Despite being in tbe middle seat I slept well."
Cons: "Flight attendants are obsessive about rules- they will wake you to put on your seatbelt or bring up your seat 40+ minutes before landing. But very polite."

Pros: "the crew was grate, brakfest was good ."

Cons: "The ticket was 3,000 dollars and the service was worse than usual"

Cons: "crew not very friendly ,I had to ask for water 2 or 3 times before it was given to me"

Pros: "Like the direct flight."
Cons: "Didn't like the 2 hour layover."

Cons: "The plane is not comfortable. Especially the number of toilets is very small: only 1 (ONE) on each side in the touristic part. Is it the feature of BA? I have never seen such a thing on other planes."

Pros: "The pilot communjcated very well and was able to keep passengers calm during the heavy turbulence."
Cons: "I was only allowed ONE free bag for an international flight??? Totally unheard of. This was my first time flying BA and it will certainly be my last. For a 12hr flight, we were only fed ONCE! And only had very old movies to watch"

Pros: "Seat selection options, easy to use online services"
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work at one of the seats on flight home. Flight was pushed off, causing it to land at 3:30 am."

Pros: "Not a dang thing."

Cons: "Nice"

Cons: "Flight was totally full... At least everyone had a mask on American does not space seats like Delta does I will be taking Delta whenever possible"

Pros: "Crew was great. Plane felt good and clean."
Cons: "My flight from Gainesville to Charlotte, we had to deplane down plane steps. I was told we would have jetway every flight. I have had hip replacement and steep steps very uncomfortable. Unable to deplane down them with both purse and small carryon. Someone always has to help me carry my carryon plus theirs as there is no provision for help from the airline. American seems to be only airline to do this, I will have to reconsider flying with you in the future."

Pros: "Leg room"
Cons: "The onboard crew was rude and one guy actually grabbed me which to me is unprofessional. All because I had a poster tube that wasn't in my bag they wanted it in my bag. Then I asked for a seat change due to my size hard for ne to be in the middle and the lady was snooty about it."

Cons: "I think boarding from rear would facilitate faster boarding And eliminate people blocking Aisle ( standing in aisle and digging In their carryons preventing people From finding their seats further down the aisle. Also people with a connecting flight Pressed for time on their next flight Departure...Should be allowed to deplane first..so they don't miss their next flight."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Foot room. Baggage room. Entertainment. Service"

Cons: "As always, the crew was friendly, professional and accommodating."

Pros: "Smooth ride"

Pros: "Perfect"

Pros: "Easy check in."
Cons: "Service staff was friendly enough; maybe I’m used to southwest. As someone who is anxious to fly smiling faces are always appreciate."

Cons: "My husband started coughing really badly. I rang the call button to see if a flight attendant would come and maybe help me. Eventually, after about 6 minutes, he managed to control his breathing and still no flight attendant to be seen. Only after 20 minutes while distributing the meals, one of the attendants shuts the call sign of and continues. This is not the service we usually get from Avianca!"

Pros: "All"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Lots of legroom in the exit row"

Cons: "The crew met their requirements. I dont think you’ll survive they dont go beyond."

Pros: "All good"

Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "The plane was too old. It is shameful. Avianca should stop using this plane"

Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "We landed at a different airport than we were supposed to and no announcement was made. We weren’t updated at all! When we finally landed in bogota we missed our connections and couldn’t get on another flight for 14 hours"

Cons: "The boarding passes I printed out at home could not be scanned at the airport. This also happened last time I flew. There are words printed thru the optical."

Cons: "Airbus seems to have completely minimalized all legroom for persons over 6 feet."

Pros: "Friendly, efficient"

Pros: "The mobile updates were helpful and timely."
Cons: "The overhead space was smaller on this plane and as I learned on my trip to DTW my weekender carry-on would not fit with my shoes in it. Because of this, I pulled my shoes out and put them in a collapsible bag that fit under the seat in front of me along with my small personal bag as I had done on my previous flight. However, the gate agent would not allow me to board the plane and would not listen to my explainations at all as I tried to keep the boarding process moving along. She kept repeating "you have 3 bags" and made me steep out of line and check my carry-on (which I would then have to pick up at baggage claim). When I asked why I couldn't get out on the jetway like she had done for other passengers she said, " I only did that for airline employees" (quick happened to be a flight attendant from Spirit). My overall experience on both flights to and from Detroit was that the gate agents and flight attendants were the most unhelpful and rude airline employees I have delt with and I will stick to my preferred carrier, Delta, for my future flights back and forth to Detroit. They certainly make me feel like a valued customer when I fly them, which I did not feel with American."

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Wait for Baggage and 20+ mins getting to gate after we landed"

Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Luggage is lost"

Pros: "Food was goof"
Cons: "Staff never smiled or even said hello. May be culture but better training is needed."

Pros: "Sears are comfortable and the entertainment is great as well."
Cons: "Not much to dislike."

Pros: "Service/crew."
Cons: "Entertainment is rather limited."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Nothing at all"

Pros: ". ."

Pros: "All flights were on time. American Airlines personal is extremely friendly"

Pros: "The least service I have seen among all the airlines I have traveled so far"

Pros: "It's pretty rare I can sleep on a plane, but I actually got some rest; very grateful for that."
Cons: "At 6'7", basic coach on a 737 is painful on the knees. I realize I can exit row for an upcharge, but that's kind of messed up, isn't it?"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "They lost my luggage and that was horrible but they delivered it to my hotel which was nice."

Pros: "Great food and headphones"

Pros: "Entrtainment and food."
Cons: "Crew service and attention very poor. Terrible experience with flight reconnection for me and my group of 5 people. Had to wait 5 hours for the crew to confirm ticketing, w.e were lied to and watched how others got preference before us. Crew gave us inconsistent explanations and had no knowledge of how to solve the problem."

Cons: "My first flight was canceled then they took it upon themselves to bump me off the next light and put me on the latest flight where I got there at 11 o'clock at night then on the way home it was delayed again I missed my connecting flight and then he put me on the latest flight again it was a complete nightmare"

Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Plane was clean and seating was not uncomfortable althouth they didn't recline very much. Short flight so it was o.k."

Pros: "The plane was clean, a/c worked well. Stewardesses offered food and drinks several times. Pilot repeatedly came over the intercom with updates on the flight."
Cons: "There was an annoying rattling noize coming from above my seat near the roof and wall."

Pros: "Plane was delayed repeatedly, then cancelled. I missed work and was originally offered a flight for twi days later. That wouldve been three days in an airport ? I had to purchase a room, taxi, and then spend the following day in the airport as that flight was repeatedly delayed. I booked a direct flight and was not rescheduled for such. Still waiting for reply from American Airlines. First time flying with this carrier and disappointed is an understatement."

Pros: "I enjoyed the whole experience. The staff was friendly and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "It was successful."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The flight overall. Also, it landed early."
Cons: "In Charlotte, they had to deplane on the tarmac and my daughter had a crutch, so she had to sit on the steps to go down them."
