Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Everything was great."
Cons: "Airline could not handle the two hour fog delay which led to tremendously long ticket desk lines and violently angry customers. Terrible experience for staff and customers."
Cons: "Flight was 2 hours late to take off, putting us very close to the time of the connecting flight to NY. Due to that we were rushed in Istanbul and our luggage was not transferred."
Cons: "At Tashkent Turkish air had no personnel to resolve problems. Our luggage was very damaged and after waiting for almost an hour, we had to leave the airport"
Cons: "The seats are to close together and did not recline, also very warm on the plane makes it very uncomfortable"

Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and kind."
Cons: "The check in at MXP took us a lot of time and there was no defined line for people to wait without other people can pass them. Some how there is people who stand in line for 10 minutes and others for 40 minutes, the ground attendants didn’t really cared about it."
Pros: "Nothing is changing, they need to make some adjustments"
Cons: "They forced me to check my cabin bag. It met their dimension requirements but said weighed too much (what does that have to do with space in cabin). They they lost the bag so I'm on vacation with no clothes."

Pros: "The food and the crew were excellent"
Cons: "The flight was almost full. I was assigned an aile seat at row 37. My seat did not recline- because there is a wall behind it - howevera the window seat had a small recline. The seat in front of me when reclined left an unusually small space in front of my face. I was very uncomfortable. I'm a small person weighs 145 lb. this was my fourth flight with Turkish Airlines and was the worst. My wife next to me in the middle seat was fortunate that the passenger in front of her did not recline her seat."
Pros: "Crew, food, beverages, and entertainment were very good."
Cons: "Flight from JFK was delayed, and as a result we've lost our luggage. Unfortunately, Turkish airlines has no delivery service at Kharkiv, which is absolutely inconvenient."

Cons: "There wasn't nothing that I didn't like . I love me some Turkish airline."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled ten days prior to departure. Nothing to do with weather. Without my permission they, booked my return flight with a 20 hour layover in Istanbul airport. I had to buy a new ticket home on a different airline. Waiting for a refund which currently seems impossible."
Pros: "Comfortable chairs, the entertainment was wonderful especially for such a long trip."
Cons: "It is not the airline but rather Istanbul airport. I would have been more convenient with a little more organization to help the massive amount of people going through the airport."

Pros: "The flight itself wasn't bad, we got a meal on each flight and the crew was charming."
Cons: "I had a trip with one connection, from Tel Aviv to Milan. The flight from Tel Aviv was delayed, which coused the connection flight to be delayed. Also, and most importantly, they've left my luggage in Istanbul (where the connection was from), so that I was left with no proper clothes/essentials for four (!) days (and it was colder than expected in Italy)."
Pros: "Everything was appreciated"
Pros: "The service, the wine, the staff."
Cons: "The food tasted bland. Wasn't bad, but bland."
Pros: "I did not fly back with Turkish airlines. I decided not to take a chance. Please read comments below."
Pros: "The food was great compared to some companies. Lots of great movies to watch, good music options."
Cons: "Omg...the crew...the crew, as was in the past, and with the exception of 1 poor guy who was really trying his best, was RUDE and lacked finess. They would literally kick u in the hallway (while passing this hostess gave me a good knock on my foot and didn't turn around to apologize. ..she kept going). They will serve you food and throw the trays down on your table, talk over you to the other hostess in the other isle while serving you. Speak in the most condescending tone, especially, unfortunately to older folks or foreigners who had a hard time understanding. I mean....total chaos and, for someone who flies often both dom & intl, this has got to be the worst service received, and thought the price point is as juicy as pie, I still expect some level of class and great customer service. It's not worth it."
Pros: "Your airline deserves the awards it has won this year! Please come to the US and teach them how to run an airline."
Cons: "I could not find a way to ask for cancellation or reschedule"
Pros: "Good food, great crew."
Cons: "Both coming and going my transatlantic flights were delayed. first time to address a mechanical problem with the heating/cooling system of the aircraft (1 hour +) and the return flight was delayed for more than 2.5 hours with no explanation."
Pros: "basically the entertainment was the only positive part of the experience and the mac and cheese was ok"
Cons: "The airline apparently switched us to an earlier flight however we had received NOT A SINGLE email telling us that our flight had been moved. We had continued to receive emails for our original flight which still existed. Have no idea why they would move us in the first place and not tell us. We had to go through the hassle of getting switched back to our earlier flight which took an additional hour of dealing with people. This mimics our experience flying from Dalaman to Istanbul when our flight was canceled and we received no notification. They told us it was too early to receive a notification (we were there 12 hours in advance). However, had we arrived within the suggested window and found out it was canceled we never would have been able to reschedule to a connecting flight that still got us to Madrid in time.When checking our bags, the clerk tried to tell us that a backpack and small purse were too big to count as personal items even though they had been fine on ALL of our previous flights. I pointed out that individuals in other lines had larger backpacks that were being counted and he finally acquiesced but with a lot of attitude. The plane was then an hour late. The sign for boarding continued to tell us it was on time up until 45 minutes AFTER we were supposed to have boarded when it finally updated and said 'delayed'. The crew stood around laughing and providing zero updates as we all worried about whether or not we would make our connecting flights. TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE OVERALL"
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "No Internet, seats were very uncomfortable..ugh"
Cons: "Checked bag got ruined, servie was terrible"
Pros: "Quick, easy, and friendly staff. The seats were comfortable and the boarding process was fairly quick and painless."
Pros: "They gave us a meal on a 2.5 hour flight and we were very surprised!"
Cons: "They boarded late and you had to take a shuttle to the plan. We drove to the plane and waited for 15 minutes in the cramped shuttle while they were putting another staircase to the plane and finishing prepping it. We left a half an hour late and the flight was already at 10pm. It was a pretty terrible experience! And the section of the Istanbul airport we were in was pretty dirty. Also the movie they played had two language options but no English which was disappointing."
Pros: "emergency row had plenty of leg room."
Cons: "don't recall getting an email reminder to check in ahead of time, so did when i arrived at airport... i guess this resulted in the emergency row seating, which, while having plenty of leg room, apparently is the least important when it comes to service. overlooked several times, my peers and i in the row had no food choices, and were given what was leftover, often lukewarm."
Pros: "Everyone was really nice!"
Pros: "Good timing"
Cons: "No entertainment"
Cons: "Always same food each time bad experience"
Pros: "Food was excellent"
Cons: "Seats a little cramped"

Pros: "Very nice, pleasant crew."
Cons: "Extended turbulence was very uncomfortable. One toilet out of service. Otherwise good flight."
Cons: "Paid for particular seat within 2-3 rows of back galley as unaccompanied minor for my son. For his comfort, he chose an aisle seat. Flight attendants onboard moved him to farthest back row in window seat and he was not able to get out to use the lavatory easily."
Pros: "Crew was great"
Pros: "Great experience!"
Pros: "What did you like? Decent meals, no charge for cocktails, blankets, pillows and head sets for everyone, friendly flight attendants, excellent entertainment options."
Pros: "Crew were very good"
Cons: "Seat assignments should be assigned when we checked in. They weren't for the second leg. But, the seats are fine."
Cons: "Friendly crew and lots of good free snacks!"
Pros: "quick and efficient"
Cons: "I know it's not the airline's fault, but we were delayed for weather. Also seats do no recline and there is no entertainment."
Cons: "The “newbies” were excited and loud, the main attendant was very.long.winded.every.single.time.she.spoke."
Pros: "Excellent cabin crew!"
Cons: "Boarding on time and announcing changes to the bowrding schedule instead of leaving customers guessing."
Pros: "Yravelling goes well when workers are competent and organized."
Cons: "Boarding front to back seems counterintuitive. People carrying 2 bags appear more hassled bumping through people to get to their seats further. Ack"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Not enough leg room in seat"
Pros: "Skywest flight. No issues. Friendly cabin crew. Short 40 minute flight."
Cons: "No chicken sandwich."
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent, flight from Milan to JFK, while long was reasonably comfortable. Food was pretty good. Lots of free movie and TV choices. Leg room was OK."
Cons: "It would be nice if the seats leaned back just a little more for sleeping. Make certain you have used the restroom before you get to JFK and customs. Customs was a pain but I had lots of time between flights."
Pros: "I was very impressed with the flight attendants. They were very pleasant & very attentive to the guests. The premium seats were very comfortable. The only disappointment was the chicken dinner but the ice cream dessert & refreshments were wonderful."
Pros: "Newer plane. Friendly crew. Landed safely and on time."
Cons: "Missed connection"
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "We all were bused to the plane. And we all had to stow our carry on bags with checked luggage."
Pros: "Everyone is working the gate and on the plane were amazing!"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and on time. We even arrived a little early in Rochester."
Cons: "LaGuardia Airport was the worst airport I have ever been in. It was so crowded that people were sitting on the floor! The gates are squished together with totally inadequate seating. It was extremely noisy."
Pros: "the service, on time departure, early arrival, FOOD at no cost"
Cons: "nothing...everything was great"
Pros: "This was my cousins first time flying and the Flight Attendants made her feel very welcomed. They all were very personable."
Pros: "Friendly attitudes"
Pros: "The flight was operated by Delta."
Cons: "I waited too late to upgrade my seats, but there were no negatives."
Pros: "The comfort, space, quiet, snacks"
Pros: "Friendly Crew"
Pros: "As always, the crew and amenities were first rate."
Cons: "We were initially told that our flight would arrive early. Then we sat on the tarmac for a half hour before anyone could be bothered to tell us we were waiting for the plane to be de-iced."
Cons: "That most of the seats do not recline do they could sell more seats."
Pros: "I really enjoyed the just a little bit larger seats, extra leg room, and the ability to watch a movie on a screen that wasn't my iphone 6 screen."
Cons: "It would be nice to have gluten-free snack options on the flight, since I have to be gluten-free."
Pros: "Flight crew was good, we arrived early on flight out and back! Feel like seats are tinier than ever, maybe it was just me. Food (water & pretzels) were OK, but nothing special (then again it was a short flight, so I didn't expect anything). Plane was small so we needed to gate check bags and the gate attendant came around and tagged everyone's bag for us, well before boarding which was hugely efficient - kudos to her on that!"
Cons: "Gate attendant's mic was broken (or she didn't know how to use) so she had to yell into the boarding area."
Pros: "Kind bar"
Cons: "Booked my flight and paid to pick my seats. Did not end up getting the seats I booked. Boarding and departing was extremely slow."
Cons: "Delayed by 3 hours"
Pros: "On Time"
Pros: "We flew a plane that had 2 row seats. I booked that for my daughter and me as well as seats ahead of an exit so we would have no one behind as. Great seats and they reclined quitea bit. We were very pleased."
Cons: "Due to weather patterns, we sat on the runway for 3 hours waiting to take off. There was approx. 50+ planes ahead of us. I know this because I was sitting next to an off-duty pilot on his way home. About 2 hours in, there was 30 planes left to take off, and then us. They air traffic control people were only letting off one plane per minute which is what was holding us. THEN after the 3 hours on the runway, our crew timed out and the brought us back to gate saying we were not taking off. At the gate, they informed us the flight was not 'cancelled' but 'delayed' to the following morning. I/m not sure how a 16 hour difference is considered 'delayed', but I digress. All Delta reps had NO idea the time of the new flight the following morning and told us all to just 'keep checking the app'. Now, fortunately for me I live in Brooklyn and could just go home. But what about everyone who was at LGA as a layover? I heard from multiple passengers they had to spend the night in a hotel, that Delta did not pay for. We finally got notice the new flight was scheduled for 9:30AM, which they AGAIN delayed until 11:30AM. Many people did not get the second change, and were already at LGA for the 9:30AM flight. To say Delta's handling of this was poor is an understatement. We knew when we got on that plane the crew was going to time out. Again, I was sitting next to an off-duty pilot who told me to 'get comfy, we're gonna be here awhile' the minute I sat down. Delta should have given us a fresh crew, or had a backup one prepared. I understand the weather is out of there control, and I understand you can't have a tired crew piloting an airplane, but there are other ways to have us take off remotely on schedule."
Pros: "Good experience overall. Pleasant staff. Movie features were wonderful and helped pass the time."
Pros: "We upgraded our seats to Delta Comfort, at a cost of round $90 per flight. It was well worth it!"
Pros: "Got an upgrade to Comfort + Delta is the best major airline in USA for sure"
Pros: "We had originally booked seats that were not together but we're able to change them at the gate. We sat in the last row of the 777 which only had 2 seats on either side of the plane rather than the standard 3. The seats still reclined tho not as much as the other rows. Food was free and excellent- so was the entertainment (I watched 4 movies on the 14 hour flight). Crew was great. Alcoholic beverages were also free but we don't drink so it didn't matter."
Cons: "The flight from phx to lax was ok but it was a small plane (CRJ700) and we're big people. No amenities whatsoever except for soft drinks, juices and peanuts. Flight was on time and made the connection with time to spare."
Pros: "Nothing. Delta sucks!"
Cons: "Poor management prior boarding"
Cons: "Too little leg room; hit entrees poor tasting"
Pros: "Comfortable seating in business class Arriving JFK early."
Cons: "Old aircraft"
Pros: "Very comfortable for such a quick flight."
Pros: "Good onboard service, comfortable seat, flight was timely."
Cons: "Preposterous delay at check-in for a sky priority and business class passenger, fully disorganized boarding procedure that staff don't know how to handle, and one female flight attendant in particular who chatted way too loudly with her colleagues during takeoff and landing."
Pros: "Flight delayed every 15 mins for hours then finally canceled. Delta did nothing to assist. Spent 12 hrs at JFK and Missed Christmas with family."
Cons: "I may be wrong but these days, the staff curtsy and overall well coming approach is lacking! Just a smile and a few cheerful words can transform passengers’ mood greatly!! This becomes particularly important when one is traveling for > 9 hours back to back flights!! One can extra charge for it!!"
Pros: "Crew attentive. The delay was due to airport conditions in FCO, cannot be blamed on Air France."
Cons: "Food. For a 2-hour plus flight, from 11am to 1:30pm, we got 20gr pretzel sticks. This is ridiculous. Don't pretend you are not low-cost! Formerly, before the Joon failed (thank God) venture, Air France had real sandwiches around that time of the day on that line."
Cons: "Advertised October Pink products but did not have them for breast cancer support"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Spacious business class seats, excellent meals"

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: "Air. France usual"
Cons: "No lights working on plane. Couldn't read or do work WiFi wasn't working either"
Cons: "Crew forced me to change my upgraded comfort seat to accommodate a 12 year old who they knew was going to be airsick. So I spent the first half of the flight next to a vomiting girl. Only after I asked to file a complaint, they allowed me one of two empty seats in premium. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "Entire trip was easy and comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was friendly!"
Cons: "Once again no vegetarian options."
Pros: "Air France has the best crews! They really go the extra mile."

Cons: "Return the 777 to 9 across"
Pros: "Everything. crew friendly and food/drinks the best"
Cons: "Nothing...all was wonderful"

Pros: "Service and crew are great"
Pros: "Good selection of movies"
Pros: "Very quiet"

Cons: "Plane left more than 40 minutes late with no explanation or apology."
Pros: "Comfortable, hospitality and wonderful service"
Pros: "Ground crew at CDG was helpful to file a claim for the lost luggage."
Cons: "Ground crew at MXP Was inexperienced. She called every one in my flight to form a new line and it was immediately total chaos. And then they lost one of our luggages!"
Pros: "The airplane was modern, and the crew very good. Nice, service oriented and in general trying to make the flight experience as good as possible."
Cons: "The flight was very late. I lost my connection. My bag was lost and unable to recover it so far (after more than 24 hours). About to initiate the next leg of the trip with no clothes or any idea if my luggage will be recovered."
Pros: "Plane was comfortable and new."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "The friendliness and courtesy of the staff."
Cons: "One piece of my luggage was left behind in Paris."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice."
Cons: "We got socked with 40 Euro fees for our carry on plus personal item being 2 lbs over. The biggest problem is they were picking and choosing which bags they weighed. 10 people behind us and before us got in without incident. Plane wasn’t even half full so they were deliberately trying to make more $."
Pros: "Very poor sound quality on the earphones. Made it very difficult to watch a movie and almost impossible to listen to music."
Cons: "Its been a week. My trip has ended. I still do not have my bags. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "The crew, the service, the food and beverages"
Cons: "The 3 hours delay"
Cons: "Not checking my carry on weight at check in then letting me walk all the way to security to then check my bag and tell me to go back to check in then the counter is closed and they tell me it's too late and that I need to get ride of my things so that my bag is under weight and barely making the flight"
Cons: "The food: asked for vegetarian but got incipit vegan... Mostly rice with coconut milk"
Pros: "Airplane staff were good"
Pros: "The fact that the plane made it to SFO"
Cons: "Downgrade without notice or consent separating family. Paid full fare for family to travel business class together. AF without our knowledge downgraded one member, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. They offered no compensation, no apology, and CDG ground crew was terribly rude. All anyone said was, nothing to be done, now please Leave"
Pros: "Cabin Crew and food selections were top notch"
Cons: "Seat configuration as a first class ticket was awful. Same configuration as economy class but by leaving the middle seat empty constituted first class. I'm 6'-1" and missed the legroom...."
Pros: "tool me safe from one airport to another"
Cons: "wait time, food"
Pros: "I enjoyed the food, the crew's friendliness in First Class and the boarding process."
Cons: "The wi-fi did not work on our flight"
Cons: "Small leg space"
Pros: "It was as expected."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit tedious because we had to first board a bus to take us to the airplane."
Pros: "Croissants instead of pretzels was a nice change of snack"
Cons: "Computer failure rendered the check in process a total mess. Staff seemed utterly at a loss and also totally unprepared for this very early and very full flight. Most passengers seemed to have multiple bags to check. Since this is a regular flight it was hard to understand why check in staff wandered in late when time was already tight - let alone having a system failure as well to deal with. We were 50 minutes late leaving. This resulted in many of us either missing or having extremely tight (stressful) connections at CDG Paris."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "I was not given my original reserve seat and no reason was given"
Pros: "Average flight"
Cons: "Food on AF montreal - paris flight and totally rude stewardesses"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable."
Cons: "The bag did not arrive. It stayed in Paris even though my first flight was on time. Connecting at CDG was a negative experience. Not enough time and unfriendly staff at the security check."
Pros: "I have been Flying Blue platinum for six years in a row. I often wondered why I never got a complimentary upgrade... Well, I can no longer complain: I was very kindly invited to move across that curtain. Of course, in short haul (2-hours+) A321 flights, all seats are created equal, business or main cabin... But the attention was there, excellent service, and gourmet food too. The whole experience was great. I'll go on flying Air France with fewer regrets."
Pros: "should let first board passenger in rear rows and not everybody together."
Pros: "Our flight from Prague to Paris was on time, very comfortable and inexpensive. Crew members were friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Quick boarding, arrived 30 min early, fast exit and quick bag retrieval"
Pros: "Crew was amazing."
Cons: "First leg of our trip on British air on a smaller plane with lots of comfort and room. Our 2nd and long leg was on a larger and newer plane. Leg room and room for the tray table was so tight and uncomfortable for a long Flight. Paid extra for end seating and using British air for transfers through Heathrow as an American Air partner. Will try to avoid the extra cost in the future."
Pros: "Crew was great. Seats and leg room better than other airlines."
Cons: "They took too long for check in. The crew was confused"
Pros: "Crew was great, plenty of food."
Cons: "The announcements ran a bit long toward the end of the flight. Quite a bit long"
Pros: "AMAZING CREW! Excellent food, clean bathroom, comfortable, good movie selection. Fantastic experience!"
Pros: "Crew was good. Cramped seating as usual."
Cons: "Extra seat leg and knee room like 4 more inches would make all the difference in the world."
Pros: "The crew was great, however the other passengers made the flight back unbearable. Everything from bad body odour to a child kicking my seat."
Cons: "I didn’t realize I had to preselect food options prior to. There wasn’t a veggie option when they got to me. The crew was super apologetic even though it was my fault."
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight very much. It was excellent . the crew was especially pleasant and excellent"
Cons: "No individual TV on such a long flight"
Pros: "Meal service"
Cons: "Security at Heathrow. Check-in at b.s. was very v3ry slow. Charged us for coffee and tea flight from map to heathrow"
Pros: "Check in was a breeze, and the food was good!"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed d/t engine trouble, & we missed our re-booked connecting flights twice & finally our third flight was only available to a different city than originally planned.. (Newark, NJ instead of JFK) In compensation, we were offered a coffee voucher but had to dead run to catch the next flight. No time for coffee."
Cons: "No free juice and water. Everything is for purchase. No seatback entertainment. No internet."
Pros: "Quick flight"
Cons: "Boarding ticketing had rude personnel"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Snacks and beverages available all time."
Cons: "Flight was operated by American Airlines. Aircraft was insanely old, with no personal entertainment system, but only a few overhead monitors for all passengers, which played OLD movies. That is unbelievable and unacceptable in 2018. Seats pitch was pretty small and I even had to fly on a broken seat that would not recline, for a 11 hours flight. The most uncomfortable flight I have ever flew. If that wasn't enough to make the experience the worst possible, flight attendance was rude! I strongly suggest to avoid American Airlines at all cost."
Cons: "We were late..had issues with carry-on unnecessarily... They didn't even serve water"
Cons: "Overpriced and outperformed by the Budget Airlines."
Pros: "Crew was nice, food quality good"
Cons: "Single Breakfast bar for breakfast was pretry minimal"
Pros: "Fast boarding, comfortable plane"
Cons: "Have to pay for everything including coffee, tea or water. No entertainment at all"
Cons: "Seats not the comfortable. Small space. Took off late and crew made it seem that rebooking our connecting flight would be a piece of cake when in reality we had to wait in line for four hours before even getting to speak to someone about it."
Pros: "Flight was not to crowded"
Cons: "Seat are smaller than usual"
Pros: "Nice comfortable ride from Heathrow to JFK , crew was terrific tending to all passengers , on time and get the service coming throughout the flight"
Cons: "Everything was good , no complaints."
Pros: "Flight was on time. This allowed us to make our connection."
Cons: "Tickets & bags checking clerk was rude; not very helpful."
Pros: "Crew; very personable, answered questions, connection info."
Cons: "it was chilly and and no in-seat screens."
Pros: "I got a very good price on this flight attendants were very nice transfer between concourses was much faster than the BA flight magazine lead me to expect"
Cons: "the entertainment screen was fuzzy - visual images unclear on video audio selections were good though length of concourse was ridiculous and lining up for boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "the Entertainment system"
Pros: "Timelines, crew attitude and onboard entertainment"
Cons: "Seats are crammed. Too restrictive about carry on luggage. Asked us to check in as the bag was 1 cm taller than their measuring box. Significant delay in bags coming to conveyer belt."
Pros: "For an hour and a half flight all went smooth."
Cons: "You can even offer your passengers a cup of water? We arrived three (3) hours before departing. Check in was so slow, and disorganized. We know it's a short flight but after a (2) two hour of check in, those Italians don't break a sweat so. offer just a cup of water!"
Pros: "Basically nothing about this flight was good."
Cons: "We arrived almost 3 hours early for our flight, and STILL ended up running to our gate to make it because we waited over an hour and a half in the bag drop line. There were only about 10 people in front of us in this line, but the guy working the counter had no urgency and would frequently stop to make jokes and chat with his coworkers beside him. There was another woman in tears because she was about to miss her flight. Then, once we waited in another insanely long, slow line to board, our flight was delayed over an hour with us sitting on the plane, which caused about half the plane to miss their connecting flights (including us) in London. This then caused us to miss our final connection in the states, which happened to be a standby flight. When trying to rebook a flight to the states from London, we explained how difficult it would be to get another flight out of our original airport in the states since it was now the weekend. The customer service rep informed us that as long as British Airways 'fulfilled their contract' to get us back to the one destination, it wasn't their issue how we got another flight back home."
Pros: "I like the way they treat people. Each crew member was friendly and worked very hard to please everyone"
Cons: "I have no negative comments."
Cons: "Told there was meal and then asked to pay for it - show be clear when booking!"
Pros: "nothing really"
Cons: "Do not serve food or drinks without charging. Have to even buy water (bottled). The crew is not polite or friendly. I flew BA almost 20 years ago and swore I will never fly them again. I broke that promise as I booked a flight in Virgin Atlantic which had connections on BA. 20 years later the service still sucks and has gotten worst. No more BA for me ever."
Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "The BA ticket counter did not open early enough with enough staff to get all passengers checked in time. As such, the plane was delayed and we missed our connecting flight."
Pros: "Customer service was really nice from checking bags in to the in crew flight team"
Cons: "No complementary drinks and no entertainment"
Cons: "Rude employees, flight attendant actually kicked my partners leg on purpose. No beverage provided at all."
Pros: "The flight was on time and the tripulantes were nice and helpful."
Pros: "Crew and ground personnel extremely polite and helpful. Good entertainment selection. And there's room for everybody's carry-on! Comfortable airplane even on coach, besides the 2 sore points on the "don't like" pane."
Cons: "Airbus A380, so boarding and de-boarding took some time. Aircraft interiors are made per airline requirements, not simply by aircraft manufacturer. On an airplane that will always be use on long haul routes I won't expect the usual non-really-reclinable last row of seats. Moreover, the armrest does not disappear between seats when moved upwards, it goes up only 45 degrees. Quite a nuisance traveling with your s.o. or children if you want to lean on each other."
Pros: "Finally an airline whose pilot keeps passengers informed of reasons for delays with frequent updates."
Cons: "You are now charging for water? Really?"
Cons: "I originally purchased a round trip ticket thru Kayak to be in Italy from 3/31 thru 4/12. I arrived 3/31 and a few hours later received messages that my son had passed away from a heart attack. My wife had been in Italy for a week at this point at a conference. We had to purchase tickets on very short notice to get home. I was charged over $2700 per ticket, nothing credited for the tickets we already had to return to the US on 4/2. So not only were we deeply upset at the loss of my son, we were pillaged by the airline with for very expensive tickets to sit in the last row of the jet. I certainly will remember this regarding future flights on British or American Airlines"
Pros: "Nothing notable"
Cons: "Nothing is complementary"
Cons: "Transferring from one flight to another, from one terminal to another. Definately, too litte time for transfer. Rushing, with no time to stop at the restroom."
Pros: "Good seating & service"
Pros: "Crew were very accommodating."
Cons: "It was an older plane and the video screens were damaged. Made for an extremely long flight."
Pros: "Got lucky and flew in a 777-300ER, very good flight experience overall."
Cons: "Perhaps a savory snack towards the arrival would have been better."
Cons: "Individual tv screens would be a plus."
Pros: "I used to think that British Airways was one of the classier emails. Unfortunately, they have become thoroughly mediocre. The meal was one of the very worst I've ever had on an airplane, entertainment system antiquated, no email, poor ventilation with no individual air outlet. Heathrow is an airport to be avoided if at all possible."
Cons: "Check in with bags was too slow with only one agent available and there were 30-40 people in line!."
Pros: "Bar option for self service. Large bathrooms. Yes attitude of crew."
Cons: "Waking me up when I am clearly asleep to ask if I want food or drink 3 times. I think passengers should not be disturbed. Forgetting to offer me duty free shopping later in flight when I clearly said yes I would like to shop and then when I remembered it was too late."
Pros: "A nice flight, a very professional crew. Overall, a very good comfortable experience"
Cons: "Would prefer something more nutritious, less fattening"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful crew."
Pros: "entertainment, seat space (main cabin extra)"
Cons: "meal service more suitable for daily flight (breakfast first and lunch last)"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Crew was fine but you can’t hear anything they are saying over intercom"
Cons: "Plane was late getting to gate then lightning kept luggage from being taken off and put on and on top of continued lightning, plane was 1 hr plus late getting out"
Cons: "Just about everything but the crew"
Cons: "Last minute (after partial boarding) they had to switch planes due to a "maintenance issue" which I would think they would have caught earlier."
Pros: "Passengers’ standards are so low, so when a flight leaves on time and arrives on schedule or early, we think we are blessed. That’s what happened in this flight."
Cons: "On time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "No entertainment in the seatback or power for charging personal devices"
Pros: "I wanted to fly british airways because they have newer nicer more modern planes where even coach has electrical plugs. Seats are more comfortable. Imagine my surprise when my flight was changed to American Airlines on a plane that was so old the seats didn’t have inflight entertainment and they were way too small."
Pros: "The flight crew was incredibly friendly"
Cons: "Old plane with uncomfortable seats. Also, for a 10 hour flight there was only 1 new release and it was a kids movie"
Cons: "baggage damaged and lost"
Pros: "Crew worked hard."
Cons: "premium service was good including extra seat space"
Pros: "Relatively comfortable plane, great movies (I watched four!), good timing between meals/snacks."
Cons: "These planes are always SO cramped. We paid to be in the section with 9 seats across instead of 10 which was worth it but wish that they would just give everyone slightly more space - seems humane for such long flights! The group boarding on these huge planes always seems chaotic. Also it seems like it would honestly make more sense to start at the back and move forward. Would have less waiting for people in front of you to get settled. Wish the last snack had a piece of fruit or something with a bit more healthy aspect."
Pros: "The helpful gate agents getting the assisted on board. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The seats have no leg room. the person in front of me laid their seat back and I could not get out to use the restroom. The screen where my husband sat did not work."
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "Old airplane between MIA and SJU"
Pros: "I had to buy new clothes after lost bag and since bag had been lost twice during my trip, I was reluctant to check the bag. It was of size to cram into my carry on so I did that, but American staff demonstrated concern, had a sense of humor and helped me get a comfortable seat to sort of take some of the sting away. All that was great of them I was aware of being in an upgraded seat. No complaints, but it stung a little because I was deeply aware of the reinforcement of class. The small, extra comforts were wonderful and I wish everyone had them while risking their lives together over the ocean - especially the extra room At times, on the way over I felt a claustrophobic panic. But to stay positive, they were kiind, sympathetic, funny, sweet. I appreciate them."
Pros: "Trip overall was great until getting baggage at baggage claim."
Cons: "We waited 1 hr or more for our baggage to arrive at baggage claim and no one from AA told us anything until about 50 minutes into our wait that there was a weather delay so baggage crew couldn't work in the conditions. When we landed, the weather was fine so no one knew! Many people missed connections or had to run through the airport by time they got their bags. Better communication would have been easy to do to keep us informed."
Cons: "Check in was a disaster with the computer system down. The gentleman that helped us was lovely but system issues kept us at check in a very long time and unfortunately that together with the crazy insanely long distance to our gate- then only to take a bus- we did not have time to pick up any food or make any stops which we counted on and had arrived 2.5 hours ahead of time to check in to allow for."
Pros: "Movie choices"
Pros: "Our flight was delayed somewhat by a service door not completely latched. The plan returned to get it closed, then was promptly airborne. After the delays, the flight actually made it to our destination by our scheduled arrival time."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Entertainment sucks, food, better eat a 7 eleven, confort very very baf"
Cons: "One of the oldest aircrafts - unbelievable they would use this from Milan to JFK! There were NO TV screens on the seats and whats worse is there was nowhere to plug in headphones to watch the one tiny TV screen for all. When we were landing the lights in our cabin - the crew was mediocre - the food was indelible - I advent flown American for over a decade internationally and there is a good reason why i will never again!!"
Pros: "I liked the food and the fact that we had booked good seats in Economy so we were comfortable."
Cons: "We weren't able to choose the movies etc. We were forced to watch what the airline picked on a big screen. Old plane."
Pros: "Quietness of the flight and easy boarding entertainment was good"
Cons: "Food a bit heavy and large and crew only ok"
Cons: "i had a really horrible experience with a flight attendent but the 2 in my cabin were great. Earphones didnt work and couldnt see screen"
Pros: "The fact I was able to go home."
Cons: "The plane is old and there was combustion smoke smell in the cabin. The seats were also old and looked like repairs were made in some instead of replacing them. There were no TV’s in front of my seat reather the ones projecting on the corridors. Food was full of poor GMO ingredients with palm oil and high fructose corn syrup..... a disgrace coming from Italy."
Pros: "Just about nothing."
Cons: "Aged plane, aged bitter crew."
Pros: "Very nice and genuinely friendly flight attendants and ground personnel. Flight arrived early, perfect landing and take off."
Cons: "Kayak/webjet sent me the wrong check in code for the wrong airline operating my flight. I inserted it on the online form multiple times until I was blocked from doing so, and there was no link to communicate online in real time with anyone who could solve the problem. This was extremely stressful and unnecessary, as well as time consuming. It was not how I wanted to spend my final night in Italy. Furthermore, I had to wake up at 4 am to get a very early bus to the airport in order to check in early enough in person. NOT cool. The food was mediocre. The entertainment options were about the worst I've ever seen. My seat hardly went back at all."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The plane was from 1970 and I mean that. A 10 hour flight with only main cabin tvs, no wifi or outlets? Atleast hand out ipads. The food was also absolutely disgusting. I know it's airplane food, but what a horrible first impression to anyone coming over to the US for the first time and they eat BBQ chicken that tastes like dirt."
Cons: "Think this plane still had screens overhead vs personal screens."
Pros: "the flight attendant passing out newspapers calling them "fake news" was hilarious."
Cons: "when people lean back in their seats, i'm pretty much hit in the face because of the lack of space. so i also had to lean back in my seat to just get some face space. won't use AA again for long flights."
Cons: "I received an electronic boarding pass but still was required to go thru a security check to get a paper boarding pass, and then had to go stand in the original line again. Aircraft was dated. Audio for th in flight was bad. Poor experience overall."
Pros: "Selection of movies, food, air hostess"
Cons: "There was no personal screen like most flights have now. We had to watch the movies on the general screen overhead; however, the sound for the headphones didn't work so we couldn't enjoy those movies. The flight was a non-stop 9hr flight, which made it seem very long without having entertainment."
Cons: "No personal tv's on an international flight, that is absurd Smallest seats I've sat in in years"
Pros: "Flight attendants"
Cons: "Cramped beyond belief. Can’t roll carry on bags through aisles. Seems they’re more narrow. Boarding seems something beyond common sense. On domestic flights I only fly Southwest unless a must do trip and they don’t fly there. Our trip over to Milan on British Airways was wonderful. Sorry the last leg was American Airlines.)"
Pros: "The crew was extremely personable, friendly, courteous and helpful. They must have come down the aisles about 20 times during the trip."
Cons: "The food was not great and the movie selection was pretty bad."
Pros: "The cabin was beautiful, the crew was SO friendly and very helpful in every way. The best Flight Attendants!!!! This was the best flight I've had in 30 yrs. I can't say enough great things about this leg of our trip. Food was good for airline food.....I just spent 9 days in Italy eating the best, so hard to compare with! I'm a retired Flight Attendant."
Pros: "The movie selection was good, although it was in Italian. The drink selection was good. Thanks for the pillow and blanket."
Cons: "I began flying when airline attendants were called airline stewardesses. Their personality plus attitudes and attention to detail reflected on the overall image of the airline, and did not make me feel like a second rate citizen in a second class seat. I've noticed over the last decade-plus that this has changed. I've been rudely spoken to for reaching for a napkin off the cart as I was not given one with my drink. My elbow was hit by the cart as it moved from back to front of isle, and no apology followed. The garbage was collected moving back to front, so I had to get the attention of the attendant after she flew by me. I thoroughly researched the size of the suitcase required prior to flying, and bought a new one to meet the requirements. My suitcase did not fit on American Airlines. Why am I bringing up American Airline? When getting to the airport in Milan, Italy, 2 1/2 hours prior to flight departure, I approached the British Airway counter. As no one was there, I proceeded to believe I was too early, so I had breakfast. I again approached the British Airway counter and still no one was there. On my way to the bathroom, I found the flight board and followed the directions. I searched for British airlines at the gate I was directed to, but was unable to find it. I asked an attendant, and I was directed to the American Airline gate. It was very confusing. It would have been nice if there was a sign at the British Airways counter directing its customers to American Airlines."
Pros: "The crew was very nice"
Cons: "How late the flight took off How tight the seats were Entertainment if you want to call it that was barely visible from our seats"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "No individual entertainment units. Forced to watch airline selected movies. No free cocktails. I booked BA for numerous reasons and should have been switche'd."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Initially the flight was booked with my wife and seated next to each other. Somehow during the switch in airlines the seats were separated. We were forced to see if we could find a passenger flying alone to switch with. Additionally the 767 did not have individual entertainment screen. Being able to watch movies of your choice makes a long flight more enjoyable."
Pros: "This plane seemed newer than the outbound one with better electronic controls Except for the baggage check in process, security etc. moved quickly and smoothly."
Cons: "Very long wait at the Check in Counter. I'm an AA member, (>20 yrs) but NOT eligible for Priority Check- in ? The Italian counter people sometimes took >10 min. to check in individual families. I saw two agents at one check in where the two seemed to just be chatting?! We were in that line over 45 minutes! Our own check in only took 15 seconds! Gates VERY far from the Check In counter."
Pros: "Ice cream as a snack was a nice surprise."
Cons: "This was a nine hour flight and the entertainment system was very old. There were screens in the middle of the plane with the movies chosen for you. On a flight this long, the customer should have options. You also were not able to control your the air. So the flight was freezing! The lunch options were meatballs or cheesy pasta. I thought these were risky. What has happened to chicken?"
Cons: "We bought 3 seats on Business class. My seat did not have the TV working. After flying for 2 hours the flight attendant gave me a portable TV, after asking multiple times. The food was totally horrible. The catering company that American Airlines uses needs to be replaced immediately. Flying TAP, Emirates, Latam, British Airlines , their catering company is very good. Flight attendants were sarcastic and rude. The service was equivalent if you fly coach class."
Pros: "The British Airways flight to Europe had on-demand movies, with a screen on the back of the seat in front of you. The American Airlines return flight only had a cabin screen, where everyone watched the same movie. I will say, however, that the two movies I watched were excellent, so the outcome was fine (but given the option, I'd take the BA option of on-demand viewing!)."
Cons: "The seats on the AA weren't quite as comfortable as the BA flight (seats sat pretty straight upright, and not too plush... but all in all, not terribly uncomfortable)."
Cons: "Only one plane really gave me a bad experience. The plane was pretty old and cramped and the crew was very rude. Maybe they were having a bad day or didn't want to be in the old plane either, but their performance was bad. One of the attendants, I think his name was Juju, asked me is a soft voice if I would like a drink. With the engines roaring in the background I thought he asked have you been served a drink? I responded "No, I have not." And he started off serving everyone else. I had to call him and asked if he was skipping me and he replied "I asked you if you wanted a drink and you said No!" I explained the engines were loud and I mistaken his words and with an attitude he served me a drink. For the whole 9hr flight I avoided him at all cost and just responded to the other attendants. The other attendants seemed annoyed and would roll their eyes or make a face when people would try to pass them on the aisle, but I in their defense, they were moving a large cart in a small aisle. Passengers should have waited until the aisle was clear before moving. That was my only issue. The next flight was better with no problems."
Pros: "That we flew over the Atlantic safely. Pleasant enough crew."
Cons: "Very old airplane , the ones with a screen TV in the middle of the airplane."
Pros: "The crew was so friendly and helpful and especially kind to my five year old son."
Cons: "The plane was quite old and so the entertainment options were poor for such a long flight."
Pros: "Quick boarding, no shuttle! Pilot very informative"
Cons: "We were never asked for beverage service.Also when arriving and exiting to retrieve our bags when congested with baggage no room to stand and wheelchairs all at once trying to exit up ramp.Very unorganized and chaotic."
