I followed all airport, tsa & delta staff regulations. They charged me a fortune. $750 to check luggage which went to Baltimore without me. I need two of those bags sent to Atlanta now. I will be on hold for an hour with them trying to resolve this. I will be flying home on America or United
Not much to expect from Alitalia these days. They should not be part of the Skyteam. They are way below the standard. Service is very poor and you do not feel welcome on board. Space is smaller, only water, no garbage college in between or before landing, dirty bathrooms and entertainment is so so.
Pros: "The stewardess working first class was very rude to my son. Her negative attitude set the tone for the entire flight and ruined our experience."
Pros: "Only selection of movies but that’s all!"
Cons: "Flight delay could have been explained better, boarded the plane and sat in for about 2:30 min, crew could have been more proactive but NO! Food especially thinking this dinner time in business class fare very small portions! Wi-Fi paid for full flight but it was turned off in the mid of the air!"
Cons: "Left seven hours later than I anticipated Some passengers were rebooked on earlier flights while others told to go with same flight flying later Very very disorganized"
Cons: "Always need more room"
Cons: "Food. Phone charging at seat, entertainment screen."
Cons: "We paid for comfort plus but the seats were no different than main cabin. Comfort plus experience on other legs was much better."
Cons: "The intercom was turned up too loud."
Pros: "Crew stepped up when we were delayed. In Flight entertainment was nice to help pass the time."
Cons: "More honesty from the pilots/airline. Got on the plane, taxied to take off, then informed that we had to go back to the gate. At the gate, they wouldn't let anyone off and then we were told that there was a minor maintenance issue that would take 15 minutes to fix. It took 4 hours. Poor job by Delta"
Pros: "The flight was not cancelled, crew was friendly, we arrived at our destination."
Cons: "Flight delayed two hours and absolutely no info provided to customers about what was going on and if/when flight would depart."
Cons: "Even vegetarian Hindu food was ordered over the phone. We're presented non veg food. When asked about the non veg food we were told that we dint order. Lie right away. Alitalia members showed worst and discrimination based behavior. Very rude. Won't travel on Alitalia in future"
Pros: "When I finally got off the plane"
Cons: "Everything. No instructions, no pens or pencils, ignorant staff. Got to Cancun and waited 2 hours with no directions to just go they immagration. The forms were in Spanish and the staff could not translate. I’ll never fly Delta again."
Pros: "Had a great experience with Delta all around. Seating and crew were lovely, in flight entertainment was great. Overall, very pleasant experience and flight was on time."
Pros: "Crew did not serve breakfast because flight arrived earlier How about better communication with pilot?"
Pros: "The crew was polite but not overly friendly or welcoming."
Cons: "Boarding was orderly but it was hard to hear the announcements of the zones. I flew economy and it was like flying in a frozen sardine can. There was absolutely NO leg room. At 5 ft, 2 " if I found it difficult, I cannot even imagine how a taller person felt. I wore a coat, sweater, and scart , and warm socks, and I was still freezing the entire trip. It took me 20 minutes to thaw out after arriving. It was quite uncomfortable."
Pros: "Boarding from back to front. Making early boarders wait to the side when they tried to embark too soon."
Cons: "All the people standing in line prior to boarding."
Cons: "Wait time because of Atlanta crowding.Re:hurricaine?"
Pros: "Boarded quickly and we made up plenty of time when we were only 15 mins late for take off."
Cons: "Baggage broke our baby stroller. Banged up, heavy deep scratches, and won’t lock properly nor will it release the brake phone portly where one wheel won’t unlock without much luck. Waiting to see how they correct this very expensive issue. And the vegan tapas option for food was not good at all. Ended up staying hungry for the duration of the flight. But my wife enjoyed her turkey sandwich."
Pros: "Friendly service. Frequent snacks which is nice on a 10-hour flight."
Cons: "Cramped conditions"
Pros: "Professional, courteous, and responsive crew and attendants."
Cons: "No leg room"
Cons: "I began asking for my wheelchair escort the minute I got off the plane. I was assured in Houston they would be there when I got to Detroit. They were not. The request was clearly spelled out on my boarding pass along with my personal oxygen equipment information. I kept asking different staff and they would call for me then say somebody would be there. I waited for an entire hour and only when I started to cry did somebody do something. It was terribly stressful."
Pros: "It's a rather short flight. We grabbed 12A and 12B (should've gone for 10A and 10B when the choice was there) as knees started to hurt. Fine SLC lounge one is fine (mac-and-cheese, chicken, Baileys behind the bar, etc.) to make you happy prior to departure."
Cons: "No food, snacks are okay though so this is a wash considering it was a short flight. Sky priority bagging ... doesn't matter. We saw several other bags get unloaded along with ours. No Delta lounge at the destination (RNO)"
Cons: "The flight was fine, but there was no onboard entertainment. Fortunately the Wi-Fi worked so I was able to stream."
Cons: "Retrofitted entertainment system under the seats made it very uncomfortable. It was hard to even stretch your legs."
Cons: "That's the flight is clean"
Cons: "The floor was litte bit dirty"
Pros: "Staff were friendly and attentive. Boarding was good - efficient and quick."
Cons: "Seats were not that comfortable. Aircraft very noisy. Competition offers a much better service. Transfer in Atlanta was a nightmare, taking almost two hours from landing to getting to the domestic gate for the next sector. only three immigration staff working."
Cons: "Felt like I was sitting in my neighbors lap!"
Pros: "Friendliness, spirit, organization of crew."
Cons: "The obvious- no leg room, no food"
Pros: "Even though one couldn't hear an announcement Delta did have a staff person tell people where to line up for different zones. Flight was fine and on time."
Cons: "Couldn't clearly hear any announcements and once it was getting closer to boarding time as usual so many people just start gathering in a mass. (It would be so much easier to have signs label Zone 1 ,2, etc.)"
Pros: "Boarding was easy, flights on time Wi-Fi available (although I didn't use it)"
Cons: "Seats rather crowded in coach, small plane so it was also a bit noisy"
Cons: "very few movies to choose from. China southern had dozens"
Pros: "What a city.. Unique for hell sure..."
Pros: "The service on board is always GREAT! in Aeromexico"
Cons: "The flight was canceled and we were put in another flight next night. But the staff in Buenos Aires run the situation chaotically and made mistakes that infuriated many passengers. They need more training to learn how to say "I am sorry" more often and know how to avoid getting into arguments with passengers."
Pros: "We stood on the ground due to weather, which had nothing to do with the airline itself. Keeping this from jading my point of view, the airline stood within the standard of what is expected of a good trip. Food was good, and the choice of movies, shows, and games helped the time pass. Staff was friendly, and checked bags were ready rather quickly."
Cons: "The number of updates telling us we are going nowhere, was a bit excessive."
Pros: "No headphones available for flight"
Pros: "movie choices are great"
Cons: "the people sitting behind me kept talking about dying from the aircraft, it makes me uncomfortable."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"
Pros: "Nice courteous cabin staff."
Cons: "See comment above"
Pros: "Entertainment ( movies) were nice."
Cons: "9 hour flight and no food(meal) until 1 hour before we land. The worst food I've had on a international flight."
Cons: "Because my earlier flight was delayed they put me on this one in a middle seat I had payed for a plus front seat"
Pros: "Cramped hot plane sitting in sun for half hour with no announcements"
Pros: "Customer service very courteous and friendly."
Cons: "Flights too close together, didn't allow time for transition go gate and a break before getting on another plane"
Cons: "Flight got cancelled"
24 hour delay due to a crew member arriving 1.5 h late. People clapped for this? Obscene. Will never fly delta again. A simple error could have been resolved by holding connecting flights for 15 minutes. But no, not enough passengers to cross the 8-10 person threshold. Lost $800 due to this malfeasance. Never flying delta again.
Over 3 hours of delay without any assistance from klm
They canceled our flights but they flew anyway.
Not the first time we have experienced defective entertainment system on this trip. It should be upgraded.
Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."
Pros: "Flight arrived on time"
Cons: "No food provided "due to a strike the previous day". Not sure why this would impact on providing a sandwich or snack particularly when champagne was still available for first class passengers."
Pros: "Food was great, enjoyed watching videos, staff very profession and friendly."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed and prolonged My Baggage was not transferred and was not available when I arrived in Dulles."
Cons: "Head support for 6 feet plus people on seats would be good"
Pros: "The crew is really welcoming"
Cons: "The seats are too narrow and a bit too hard"
Cons: "KLM was not prepared to get wheel chair passenger off plane. Cost me delay of 1 hour. I will never fly KLM again."
Pros: "Service is awesome. Food is great."
Cons: "People with short connection are affected by the 15 to 25 minutes delay."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was great."
Cons: "Something did not go right with our booking so it took some work for the airline to get it figured out for us. Thankfully we had left plenty of time. But that was an unexpected stress."
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"
Pros: "The flight started with a visit in the recently renovated KLM crown lounge in Amsterdam airport. I liked the various seating options and of course the upstairs bar. The service on board was attentive and efficient, the food options I really liked (especially the Chinese dish) but also the little touches like the nuts & gouda cheese which were served in small porcelain bowls. The seat itself was very comfortable when sitting and the structure gives a lot of privacy. However for couples or friends travelling it's a bit cumbersome to have a conversation even when sitting in seats next to each other. Overall my expectations were fulfilled."
Cons: "This seat is not ideal for sleeping for taller persons (I'm 185cm tall) as the space to put the feet is very narrow and it's uncomfortable when lying on the back (as one cannot put them in the natural resting position). Cabin temperature could have been a bit lower for my taste. Crew needs better training with regards to transfer procedure in Chengdu."
Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Seat a little cramped."
Pros: "Friendly hostesses"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours"
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."
Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Pros: "The flight was perfect! Great food,movies and I even got to sleep !"
Cons: "All was well!"
Pros: "Excellent service. A meal , drink and a coffee included which we were not expecting."
Pros: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Long, slow line at check in. Not many new movies or tv shows"
Pros: "Easy to board and easy flight."
Pros: "I slept pretty much the whole time"
Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment on board in business. Stale buns - staff unapologetic. Older 737 with uncomfortable seats."
Cons: "They have mabaged to lost my luggage"
Pros: "I enjoyed the attention to detail and comfort. Helped to make the flight easier to handle."
Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."
Pros: "The time keeping was very good. We left on time and arrived early on both occasion. Good organisation. Excellent service."
Cons: "The 767 is configured oddly and th business class seats are so narrow it feel like you are sleeping in a coffin"
Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
Pros: "I personally do not appreciate the food on this leg of the journey Food Ams to Dxb is GOOD!!"
Cons: "The snack & “ solid eggs” in breakfast. Fresh fruit was good."
Pros: "My bagage broke"
Cons: "I paid extra fee for extra bagage which was tv and i paid insurance my tv broke and no one responces for it"
Pros: "The food and the punctuality"
Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"
Cons: "It was announced I can choose between fish and chicken meal but when I requested for fish meal, I was told it’s finished. My seat was 21, and it surprised me. If something can be changed about that then your services would be much appreciated. Thank you."
Pros: "Service provided by the staff"
Cons: "The navigation of the entertainment system is not very friendly"
Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."
Pros: "From pre-boarding, to boarding, to the food, and the attentiveness, everything was top notch! The cleanliness of the plane was only topped by the friendliness of the crew."
Cons: "The flight was marked at almost 11hrs but ended up being only 9...not a negative other than it meant not spending as much time on board!"
Cons: "Departure 40 mins late. I took this flight 2 weeks ago and it was also delayed."
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Cons: "The fact that there are different airline carriers for one flight is hard. In my second flight they made me check a bag which was considered a carry on during my first flight"
Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "Airlines had no record of our pets flying with. Missed our flight even though we were there over 3 hours prior. Ruined the last day of vacation. Now we are waiting for the promised help in Amsterdam. No one is here. No one knows anything. Feel like crying"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."
Cons: "I had booked a paid seat with extra legroom, but at check in the seat was given to another passenger"
Pros: "Professionality onboard, punctuality"
Cons: "In Bologna, They made me take stuff out of my luggage at check in, because the weight was 26kg instead of 23 kg and I'm even a Fyingblue gold member. Totally ridiculous."
Pros: "I can't even count the number of times I have flown KLM in the last 4 years. They are my airline of choice when I fly back and forth from the U.S. thru Amsterdam to Nairobi. This last flight I boarded and then 90 very exuberant girls from London board in all the rows in front of me. I was concerned it was going to be a less than restful flight. Just the opposite. As always the KLM crew took extra ordinary care of all of use. The service was wonderful and I scooted off the flight ahead of the girls to make my very short connection. The crew is what always make the experience delightful! Thank you again KLM."
Cons: "It would be so nice if the arm rests came up all the way. When you have empty space on your row it would be nice to move the arm rests all the way and stretch out. Also there were not as many New Release Movies to choose from as usual, it seemed."
Pros: "The new premium economy seats were really nice."
Cons: "Check the pillows in premium economy for any stains. I had a pillow with several 2-inch yellow/red stains on it. There were no more pillows of those pillows, so the attendant gave me one from business class."
Cons: "Entertainment didn't work neither did the flight attendants. They sat in the back and quite literally did nothing, no juice and water. Worst service ever. I'll fly Delta from now on. American what happened to you?"
Cons: "Excelentt , Only delayed flight"
Cons: "Who is at fault for running out of de-ice solution and making us sit on the tarmac for almost 3 hours in a plane with ventilation turned off? The apology and last minute glass of water were not enough. Terrible customer service."
Cons: "I’ll never fly American Airlines again. Staff was rude and food and entertainment screen did not work"
Pros: "The selection of movies and games."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable, the arm rest did not go up and the flight was delayed."
Pros: "Very nice hard product complimented by a great cabin crew."
Cons: "The crew set the bar too high for future flights :)"
Cons: "I’m still hungry and incredibly tired. Nobody buys their main cabin extra product, so there’s many empty seats. Ripe for the families that don’t want to pay extra to sit together. Those families bring kids, screaming kids to a section filled with higher fare paying customers. The FA in my section had such big hips, that she knocked my shoulder EVERYTIME she walked by. Not only that, everytime she did the courtesy reach over to grab empty cups from the middle seat, she hit me with her trash bag. Woulda been fine had I been awake, but I was trying to sleep in between the bouts of screaming from the devil possessed kids."
Cons: "The flight was two hours late leaving Chicago due to maintenance issues. Because of this we missed our scheduled train therefore I had to purchase more tickets."
Pros: "The crew were amazing! The flight was smooth"
Cons: "I was on row 24 and my seat did not recline and the person in front of me seemed to recline more than anyone else did. Could not Get comfortable"
Pros: "Things were all right on schedule and the plane was very updated and clean. I was thrilled with the movie selections and the food was better than average plane food."
Cons: "Bathrooms were in rough shape, would have liked to see those serviced in-flight so those of us using the space to do night-time routines like brushing our teeth and washing faces didn't have to deal with someone else's mess."
Pros: "Food was okay."
Cons: "No advance check in left me waiting in line at my connection in order to get a center seat in the middle of a group. There’s no excuse for manual check in in this day and age."
Pros: "All the services"
Cons: "TV screen didn't work too well. Delayed starting"
Cons: "The flight I booked was misrepresented. I thought I was booking a BA flight only to find it was American Airlines. This changed the terminal I was to go to and the gate in which our Italian non-english speaking driver was to meet us at. This impacted seating selection, as well. Was forced to buy a premium seat when I realized the seating chart did not appear when I purchased the tickets. Also, flight was three hours late upon arrival. I understand safety is paramount and am grateful we eventually were able to find another plane, but it begs to speculate if things would have been smoother on a BA plane."
Cons: "had tons more room on a domestic JetBlue flight than I did on American,."
Pros: "Crew made the best of a bad situation: originally planned plane with sold-out seats replaced by a smaller one -- BAD! Extra kudos for crew for creative swapping to move me to an emergency row seat when I discovered that my **extra-charge** aisle seat was damaged and unusable. Food & beverage service -- adequate, timely (though some nutrition concerns.) Good, current entertainment selections."
Cons: "The obvious -- the switch to a smaller plane, causing some passengers great distress; not realizing that a sold seat was damaged; selling me that damaged seat, and at a premium. Food nutrition -- tasty, but carb-heavy, fatty and salty. Bathrooms -- became rather smelly and unkempt toward last 1/4th of 9+ hour flight."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent!"
Cons: "Seating extremely tight"
Cons: "My Chair would not recline it was broken and was crushed every time the guy in front would lay back on his cause I could not move mine!"
Pros: "Good TV's. Great service. Good food."
Cons: "It was long"
Pros: "I truly enjoyed the flight attendants, the flight overall and the great price I got."
Cons: "The seats are slightly uncomfortable to sleep in, but that's normal."
Pros: "It was just great"
Cons: "Food was mediocre, portions were extremely small, breakfast seriously they should stop serving that muffin with yogurt."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Small, loud plane with cramped seats. No hot beverage service."
Pros: "We landed early, it was fairly comfortable in coach for a very tall person, and there was good communication from the flight attendants and pilot with the passengers. A very pleasant experience overall, from someone who is a nervous flyer!"
Pros: "Economy seats were comfy Free movies"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly uncomfortable. There was no leg room and 122 of the space below the seat in front of me was taken up by a metal box attached to the seat. I couldn't put both feet under the seat in front of me. The food was bad tasting and overly processed. We were fed a lean cuisine. The entertainment was from mounted tv's in the aisle. At this point, all planes crossing the ocean should have individual tvs for a customer to watch. They had this 15 years ago, how do they not have it now."
Pros: "The water was clean"
Cons: "Everything else! We were first sold a British airlines flight, and then we got switched to American Airlines. I don't know if that is actually an okay thing for them to do. When we got onto to plane we were stuck on the runway for over 2 1/2 hours, where the outside temperature was 95 degrees and the AC in the plane didn't work. The delay was all due to a mechanical difficulty with the engine, this did not give us peace of mind when flying over the atlantic. while up in the air my newly wedded wife and I were hoping maybe we could watch a movie to help keep our minds off the creaking of the wings, the pool of sweat from the delay, and the grumpy flight attendants. Seeing as it was a 9 hour international flight, you would have expected some sort of entertainment. Maybe a personal TV.... nope. Maybe a community TV... nope. At least they have to have a radio....... nope. All we got were our two thumbs to twiddle. After a much needed nap. We woke up hoping maybe for a hot breakfast, but to put the cherry on top of some terrible ice cream, we got a mediocre cold breakfast. All in all I will not fly American Airlines again. I would happily and quickly pay double for any other airlines but them. It's such a poor reprisentation of our country."
Pros: "The cabin crew were absolutely outstanding."
Cons: "Seat spacing for international flight"
Pros: "Boeing 777 was very comfortable and quiet. Power provided to each seat. Food and drink were readily available."
Cons: "They had to reboot the entertainment system 2 times to get it working which took over an hour. Had to redo seat assignments. Did not like bogus 79 and 129 dollar seat assignments that were designed to just extract more money from the customer."
Pros: "Nice head rest (although it did not stay bent at angle, so could actually rest against it)."
Cons: "Think it is ridiculous that I had to pay so much to select a seat ahead of time, and it was just a regular seat. I can understand for extra legroom or exit row, but for a regular seat, that is ridiculous. Then there was a fee to change priority boarding, so I could ensure I was able to have my carry-on with me, instead of risk having it go underneath."
Pros: "Take off and landing was incredibly smooth, along with the 8 hour flight from NYC to Rome, Italy. Perhaps the best flight I've ever had."
Cons: "The food wasn't all that good but I didn't have high expectations."
Pros: "They finally got us there."
Cons: "The airplane broke on the ramp and they made is sit in the airplane while the tempeture rose to about 100 degrees. I think someone was about to pass out before they realized they had to get us off. Then we were over 4 hours late departing while they were getting another plane"
Pros: "There were empty seats close to me, so that was great. The food was pretty good and it was nice that the wine was free."
Cons: "The screen on the back of the seat in front of me did not work well at all so it was difficult to watch movies. (I had to press multiple times to change the screen from one display to another.)"
Pros: "The quality of aircraft"
Cons: "The service lacked any sort of empathy. The crew on this flight especially the African American lady, I think are in the wrong profession. Didn't care at all. Seemed miserable."
Pros: "That we amazingly finally made it to Rome."
Cons: "Almost everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. Literally, every plane we were supposed to fly on had something wrong with it. We were delayed for hours, missed a connecting flight, had to take another flight which was delayed even longer, they had to find another plane entirely because something was wrong with THAT one. Once we finally got on the plane, we sat on the runway for an hour because there was some kind of TSA-related issue (awesome) and then the airport wouldn't let any planes take off inexplicably. We got to our destination 12 hours later than we were supposed to. But to make up for it, American gave us $10 food vouchers to use in the airport in the middle of the night..."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system outdated"
Pros: "Efficient boarding. Plane clean. Seats lean back far but that being said the individual in front of you ends up in your lap."
Cons: "As night went on a couple of the flight attendants in the premium cabin seats with standard legroom appeared grumpy and short with patrons. No gluten free options. In flight entertainment and reading lights not working for my dad or I. A long flight for that to be out."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and big enough for large people. That crew and flight were on time and pleasant."
Cons: "I called to change my flight and the charge was outrageous. I fly often and other airlines have made changes with low fees. The the man on the phone with me was hard to understand because of his accent and was rude."
Cons: "I paid $150 extra for 2 exit row seats thinking we could use the extra room on the long flight. Unfortunately, the exit row space was cut off by and smaller than a normal row! Our legs were extremely cramped by the time we got to Rome. We had no overhead storage, which was already small, so we had to put our carry-ons multiple rows behind us -- which made exiting the plane a pain. There wasn't any personal entertainment systems, just one tv per section. The food was sub par. The crew was nice enough, but I'll NEVER take American Airlines internationally again."
Pros: "Seats had enough room. Inhad been worred they'd be too close since iwas the middle of a 5 person row."
Cons: "The boarding was terirble. We were over and hr late take off and it was very hot boarding and it took a long time. Also the air was so dry i got a nose bleed."
Pros: "There were too many gate changes ."
Cons: "We were in the very last row so they ran out of food options."
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good. In fight crew was great."
Cons: "Apparently you can make a reservation for a seat and AA is not required to honor it. They told us that you reserve a seat but you get your seat assignment when you check in to your flight. Apparently many people can make a reservation for one seat and the first person to check in gets it. My husband and I were very upset when we found this out. Especially since we went through many hoops to get a good seat assignment."
Pros: "Great flight easy boarding, friendly staff. Had a very satisfactory travel."
Cons: "If I had not contacted the airlines myslelf to ensure that the second leg was still intact and i was still supposed to board, they would have canceled this leg of the trip as well. Because i drove to JFK, nyslelf on that day to make it for this leg. Luckily a friend had told me to contact the airline directly about this, otherwise BA would have canceled it since i did not come vie first leg of the trip. No one from Kayak told me to do this."
Pros: "I have never felt so smushed in to a space for so long."
Cons: "Space between the seats"
Cons: "This comment is to explain my disappointment with both British Airways and American Airlines. I purchased three plane tickets via Kayak to fly on British Airways to Rome, Italy on July 14, 2016. I discovered that my trip going to Rome would be operated by American Airlines. I have flown American Airlines on a number of occasions (nationally and internationally), so I did not believe it would present a problem. I was sorely mistaken. My scheduled flight from DCA to JFK was delayed for an hour due the airplane's malfunction. My family and I were trapped on the airplane on the runway along with countless others. I thought this would be the end of the airplane ordeal, but again I was sorely mistaken. When we arrived to JFK, an hour later than expected, we were informed to go to Gate 47 for boarding. I checked on the status of the plane via American Airlines website. I discovered that the gate was changed, AGAIN, to a different location (Gate 14). For this trip I received over a dozen e-mails with gate change information. For ONE trip. I went to the American Airlines Counter to confirm whether the gate changed to 14. Your own personnel was not even aware of the change until I informed him. He originally said it did not change, but after I stated that the gate changed on the website he checked his computer system and made an announcement to passengers that the gate changed to 14. This is unprofessional. Your employees who are paid to work at the American Airlines counter should be aware of all status changes for flights. It gets better. Note my sarcasm. The flight gets delayed for six. To put it into perspective, my family and I were at the airport from at least 2:30pm until 10pm. This is utterly unacceptable. I traveled with my senior citizen parents. There are hardly any meal options for passengers with dietary restrictions to consume at Terminal 8 for JFK. While it was the least American Airlines could do by supplying healthy snacks for the passengers, a banana or orange does NOT replace or make for an actual dinner. Additionally, there was no announcement made about the snacks the first time. Only the second time. Next, American Airlines changed the gate location AGAIN, but to gate 8. Further adding insult to injury, the flight was delayed. My family and I are scheduled for a tour that is dependent on this flight arriving on time. Any further delay will bring about additional unexpected costs in Italy to make-up for the fact we arrived late. American Airlines is supposed to be a premier airline, but after today's experience I surely cannot see myself being a passenger for this airline ever again. Along the same token, since British Airways contracted American Airlines, this company also holds equal culpability."
It never happened. We missed the connection by 15 minutes after a 3 hour delay for lack of staffing. Toronto staff got us rebooked quickly with an additional layover. But then my bag was lost in Toronto
Pros: "On-time performance, upgrades, staff"
Pros: "Not one thing"
Cons: "Too crowded. The service was horrible with cranky attendants. I had to clear my own food tray. Inconsistent and uncomfortable"
Pros: "It was just a stress and hassle free experience."
Cons: "Nothing really."
Pros: "Very smooth flight. Nice 787"
Cons: "Very cramped no room to move. I can't believe the meals that were served. Very small portions. A slice of bread for breakfast. No butter just dry bread and coffee!!"
Cons: "The flight was operated by Air Canada, who habitually assume either that the people in the final row have no hand luggage or simply suffer from a severe lack of operational storage capacity. Overhead bins full of spare plastic cups. As far as the crew are concerned, no problem, because you can just push your way three or four rows forward while everyone else is boarding and then take someone else's overhead space. When will Air Canada learn how to run an airline?"
Pros: "Excellent lounge experience preflight, plus the Signature Suite was right by our boarding gate so very handy. Flight was on time and service was excellent."
Pros: "New aircraft. Light dinner and breakfast was available. We didn’t expect them so we were surprised."
Cons: "Long line to check in at T1."
Pros: "Pro-free wine!"
Cons: "Can-food not the best..."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Crew was unattentitive and seemed to not know protocol or appear to have things under the control."
Pros: "Lots of choices for entertainment. Our tickets were booked as a family of 3 and we did get placed together this time in a row of 3 seats."
Cons: "Nothing was bothersome. Everything was satisfactory."
Cons: "Food not included with insane flight costs"
Pros: "For coach the flight was comfortable. Had enough leg room but 8 hours on a plane is taxing under the best circumstances."
Cons: "The attendants were professional but didn't seem to find any joy in their work. The food was barely passable."
Pros: "Although late, boarding was smooth and ready for take off quickly."
Cons: "Late again taking off. The staff were unpleasant as most air canada staff have been in recent years. Uncomfortable seats for a 9hour flight and miserable low energy staff didn’t help the experience either."
Pros: "Wine with dinner. A pillow and a blanket. Free ear buds."
Cons: "The food is atrocious. A nitrogen-wrapped muffin for breakfast? Too crowded. Check-in and boarding in Montreal was chaotic."
Pros: "Nice staff on board and in the airport. Left on time."
Cons: "Small plane not alot of storage space. Can carry small bags on board."
Pros: "Helpful and considerate staff when my friend was sick"
Cons: "The delays to leaving the airplane port."
Pros: "They arrived on time. Not much else."
Cons: "Over 4 hour flight. No food (not even pretzels). A few old movies. Flight delay with no communication. I only noticed when I was checking in at the kiosk and noticed that my one hour layover was now a 5 minute layover. Rebooked. When I arrived at destination, no notice that next flight was delayed, even though it was over 3 hours late. Thought I only had 1 hour to go through US immigrations and customs. Ran to the other end of the airport to be on time. Aircraft wasn't even at airport and flight was over 3 hours late. They couldn't have posted that so we didn't have to run across the airport? Changed gates, but no announcement. One other flyer was looking at the board and called out to the group waiting that there was a gate change. Left Vancouver at 8:00 am, arrived in Boston at 1:30 am. Won't fly with Air Canada again."
Pros: "Ease of booking"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Very nice plane, great service and smooth flight."
Cons: "Special meal was horrible."
Pros: "Entertainment options"
Pros: "Tel Aviv security is confusing and time consuming but Air Canada helps you make it through. Flight is on a comfortable new airplane with gray movie selection. Two full meals and a snack provided."
Pros: "My flight was delayed and I did not get my baggage when I arrive at Boston airport.. I had no clothes or anything to wear for three weeks when I got to Boston. I complain the very day I got to Boston airport. Up till now the bag I checked in at Toronto airport has not been given to me. The funny thing is after I checked in, it was not scan at any other place except Toronto. So it got lost at Toronto where I checked in. All that am told of is the baggage can not be located. Three weeks I spend at Boston, I had nothing."
Pros: "Stewards were really friendly and nice. They went above and beyond to make sure everyone was comfortable The pilots were also very informative. Through out the flight."
Cons: "Boarding was to busy and crazy. People were everywhere Our flight was delayed for no announcements The crew checking passports. Acted like they wanted to be anywhere but working. The ground crew wasn't ready for our flight to park so we were sitting 5 feet from parking waiting for way to long. How can the ground crew not be ready for a plane that is scheduled to be at a terminal."
Pros: "Crew was great and offered a second drink service, which seems rare these days. Food was very tasty, even if I had to buy it myself."
Cons: "We started boarding too early and the service crew had not yet completed their tasks. Thus, we were standing in the jetway, not moving, for about ten minutes."
Pros: "great lunch and very nice flight crew."
Cons: "flight was long but that is how one gets from europe to america. worst part of the trip was going thru USA customs in Toronto. They get a D- for incompetence.... but Air Canadaa had nothing to do with this...."
Pros: "the crew were very friendly and helpful. the onboard entertainment was great. The food was good."
Cons: "getting from the gate to the plane in Rome was a nightmare! the bus that took us to the aircraft was stuffed full, hot, and slow. this may be an airport issue and not airline specific, but it reflected poorly on both."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. Professional and attentive."
Cons: "The only real complaint I had was the over head compartment was much too high and I was too short to reach."
Pros: "mediocre food, satifactory"
Pros: "The service was good."
Cons: "The children screaming 70 percent of the flight. The person in front of me throwing up. Just very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Airplane quality Seat dimensions Food quality Allowing passengers to sit where they pleased Dysfunctional entertainment system"
Cons: "Waiting over 72 hours and my bag has still not arrived. Both planes were delayed, even with the 2nd flight being delayed I still had to run in order to make it. Being on time is not something Air Canada has figured out."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was decent."
Cons: "Pretty much everything was a bad experience from start to finish. The flight was delayed a half an hour which is fine and can be understandable. The space in the seats was almost criminal for an 8 hour flight. Pretty the equivalent of having people shoulder to shoulder. Impossible to try and sleep on an overnight flight. During mid flight I noticed that I had a lot of trouble breathing and thought it was just me. My wife said the same thing to me and someone on the flight needed medical assistance for oxygen. It was extremely hot the whole flight with no ability to control the air flow which made it even worse. The entertainment selection was good however the device was almost unsable because it was very laggy and it wouldn't select what you wanted. It was easily the worst experience I had and I only really went into some of the details. Having trouble breathing was by far the worst part and I couldn't believe it. My flight back was glaringly better so I'm perplexed by why this was so bad."
Cons: "In order to make more money, Air Canada purposefully sits couples, families etc. who book together separately, in order to try to get them to buy upgraded seats together."
Pros: "Decent legroom"
Cons: "Food, low quality and low choice entertainment"
Pros: "Great food and great service. Not much leg room in the 'free' seats but the flight crew allowed us to move to an empty row so we had lots of room. Would definitely fly with them again."
Pros: "Great Crew. The entertainment package was very nice."
Cons: "seats to close together very uncomfortable"
Pros: "One bag did not arrive."
Pros: "Cost of the ticket."
Cons: "Very cramped seating, bad food (a slice of greasy banana bread for breakfast?), lights on too late. AC needs to alert travelers to the differences between Rouge and regular flights."
Pros: "Never flown "air canada", was a bit apprehensive. But I was very much happy & pleasantly surprised!"
Pros: "Good seats Treated like I was important"
Pros: "Security and.boarding were pretty smooth. Flight was not full so extra seats were available. This flight was direct Toronto to Rome which was nice, previous flights stopped in JFK which meant additional security and immigration screening"
Cons: "One of the entertainment terminals wasn't working, switched seats"
Cons: "No food on a five hour flight. Had to buy food this is nickeling and dimming people. They made me miss my connecting flight we sat around in tarmack and no explanation given."
Cons: "Temperature too cold in the airplane Ipads to rent (no screens)"
Pros: "I usually fly United via Newark, but this entirely made me rethink my strategy! Great service, food, luggage delivered on time, even the pain of going through CA immigration was avoided by a smart detour of transit passengers."
Cons: "Very long lines for US security, rude US personnel."
Pros: "2 seats together"
Cons: "no wine with dinner awful service felt we were bothering the staff movies on AC app were awful food was awful damaged brand new luggage and said they didn't cover the damage awful awful awful"
