More meals in flight - one meal is not enough for an 8hr flight
Upon purchasing the ticket, it stated that, checked bags would be $30 each, so I expected to pay only $30 for my second bag, being as my first checked bag came with the price of the ticket….instead, I was charged $75 for my second bag and not $30, like the price I saw… :-( very disappointing.. I was tricked.,.
Nice,elegant,smooth,team had a pride with their work. My Favorite Airline.
They just let people fly without properly using the required mask
Air France service was superb. The airline did their best to expedite the boarding process even with the constant changes of Covid19 guidelines
Always exceptional service
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us.The food was also mediocre."
Pros: "Nothing, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Cons: "Everything, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Cons: "Seat recline was broken- wouldn’t hold position."
Cons: "I was catching a flight in Paris to Aberdeen after arriving from Malaga. The time between flights was not enough 55 mins as the gate closed 20 mins before departure and it takes at least 15 minutes from arrival to taxi to the terminal and then get off the plane. I had to change from terminal F to E which was well sign posted but I only made it with 4 minutes to spare"
Cons: "The food is usually very good, this time it was poor to disappointing- dark meat chicken.., tasteless & unhealthy....mushy fruit dessert choices"
Pros: "The schedule and timing"
Cons: "The airport, some of the crew, the aircraft seats, the entertainment system"
Pros: "Crew was solicitous."
Cons: "They didn't seat a couple with a baby together which put me in the unpleasant place of being asked to give up my bulkhead seat for a window seat."
Pros: "Staff were friendly and seats in business were super comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly and seat in KQ is super comfortable in Business."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful in all respects."
Cons: "Not getting everyone standing in line to board one hour and 10 minutes before scheduled departure."
Cons: "boarding groups were not adhered to and those in a lower boarding group often boarded well after those in later boarding groups."
Pros: "crew was great, seats were comfortable"
Cons: "departure board listed flight as being boarded and gate closed hour before flight leading to confusion and standing in queue for over an hour, part of food was frozen and inedible, paid for upgraded seat which turned out to be by bathroom smells were as bad as you can imagine"
Pros: "Great crew and prompt boarding."
Cons: "Airline food and close main cabin seating. Should offer upgraded meals, just like the extra seating space."
Pros: "Crew was really good, polite, efficient. The aircraft was relatively new and clean (rare for an airline to provide a new craft on an Africa segment). Food was good, seats comfortable. Will definitely make them my airline of choice to the extent that I can cost wise."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Nice meal service and drink service throughout. Great choice of entertainment."
Cons: "Booked with my partner. Ended up sitting apart. Not good"
Cons: "I have never been in a situation were a flight has been delayed due to the co-pilot suffering a knee injury prior to take off. A request for a doctor on board after an hour or so and then having to leave the plane and then re-board after about 40 minutes was quite bizarre."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "Very little room in economy class. For a 6'1" person, it's impossible to get comfortable."
Cons: "wine selection divider between seats"
Cons: "Air France delayed our JFK to CDG flight. That caused us to miss our connection flight afterwards from CDG to MUC. We got a later flight luckily but one of our bags got lost and is still currently lost!!!"
Pros: "I was given a great seat and the food was OK- not the Air France food of 5 years ago but still good"
Cons: "I didn't really use the in flight entertainment - the usual movies, tv etc"
Cons: "I ordered Asian Vegetarian Meal. But they served me only pasta."
Pros: "Flight crew, pilot,food and entertainment options were great"
Cons: "Baggage took a while to reach baggage claim but maybe a bit impatient after a long day"

Cons: "My luggage was lost in Paris. Now I need to wait still."
Pros: "Great service, decent food"
Cons: "There was no WiFi on the plane"
Cons: "Entertainment screen did not work; in neighboring seat it could not be switched off when we wanted to sleep; sourly employees everywhere (re-booking counter an exception); food close not being edible and cold; I forgot my watch on when going through security in the Air France terminal; when I started to say "sorry" I was yelled at by the screener who said that she will do the talking; she sent me back through the scanner twice without my watch, then once more with the carry-on and made sure that I went to the end of a very long line to wait for another screening rather than having me just go through the scanner without my watch. Needless to say, there was nothing else suspicious about me once the watch was removed. Eager to exercise her power, the security person did not seem to consider that she slowed down a long line of people waiting to be screened. I should add that I am 73 yrs old grey haired female who has traveled a lot both for pleasure and business during my entire life, often to some difficult places and that I do not argue with or provoke those in power in a situation like this. The yelling and the sending me repeatedly through the scanner, which did not beep once the watch was removed, was beyond anything I had experienced anywhere else. The sending me to the very end of the line seemed outright spiteful. (I did miss the plane connection.)"
Pros: "Food has improved a lot on business class. Meals are more creative."
Cons: "Water bottles not given out unless ou ask for it. Crew needs to better trained with how to handle business class..."
Pros: "Absolutely everything perfect."
Cons: "Through my own fault I ordered a different seat instead of window seat. :)"
Pros: "Very helpful cabin crew and did well to communicate in English to me. Flight was on time and landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Entertainment system had to be rebooted as it did not work Small screen handset was not working for the entire flight food selection was not as big as KLM or China Eastern Bathroom on board was smaller than KLM or China Eastern which meant changing into more comfortable clothing for the night flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Pros: "The friendliness and courtesy of the staff."
Cons: "One piece of my luggage was left behind in Paris."
Pros: "The cabin crew was very good!"
Cons: "The economy premium seats are very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Arriving safely."
Cons: "We didn't get boarding passes for the second flight at EDI so we had to exit the secure area, get boarding passes, and go through security a second time for the same trip."
Pros: "great seat, good food and drink, pleasant staff, efficient boarding and exit."
Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."

Pros: "General air of professionalism is reassuring"
Cons: "Food, crew appear rushed"
Pros: "1) USB charger and electric outlet 2) Availability of 2-across economy seats (for a price) 3) Vegetarian dinner option available and not too bad 4) Flight arrived on-time"

Pros: "Chicako Párizs szuper , udvarias személyzet pontos érkezés."
Cons: "Food was not good."
Cons: "I was forced to rebook my 3rd leg after taking trains in the middle."
Power outlets didn’t work and the entertainment is accessed via your phone. So silly situation to be in. That really depreciated the value of flying American vs other airlines that either follow through on the service end or communicate the issues accordingly.
Everything went well. Good crew
Terrible hit Ding noise at take off and landing. Needs to be checked!!!
Cons: "The wifi was never turned on so we never had any entertainment available. This made the flight less enjoyable."
Pros: "Everything was how should be"
Cons: "I like how you are now."
Cons: "IFE was not streaming movies, WiFi on but not loading"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful."
Cons: "My tray table lock was broken. When I took my seat, there was a piece of it barley holding it in place and after the passenger in the seat in front of me sat back forcefully, it fell and went too far under my seat to get. I had to hold it in place for the rest of the flight."
Cons: "Flight crew was rude and unprofessional. Ran over my foot with a cart. Ran into my head when I was picking something up from the aisle and was unapologetic. Overall lack of service quality."
Pros: "No flight. It was cancelled."
Cons: "Find a sooner alternate flight"
Pros: "Great film selection. Wonderful food and drinks. Airline staff quickly arranged for us to catch two more flights when there was a delay."
Cons: "There was a long delay and we missed our connection. We were re-routed so in total we had four flights in 24 hours, which was exhausting."
Cons: "Seats size and bathroom are horrible. I don’t know what to rate for food. They don’t serve you anything but a drink."
Pros: "Entertainment offered several options to choose from"
Cons: "Food, only one beverage was offered"
Pros: "Quick and efficient boarding, on time, when I asked at the gate for a window seat, I was accommodated. The food was very tasty and the flight attendants pleasant. Overall happy with this flight!"
Cons: "It is impossible to sit comfortably due to the headrest that pushed my head forward regardless how I positioned it and removing it was impossible. There were no individual screens with in-flight entertainment and although I usually read or sleep, I can see how it would bother someone."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Good food options in coach."
Cons: "Boarding process (AA in general) needs improvement considering the plethora of groups. Takes too long to board. New seats are downright tiny."
Pros: "The helpful steward"
Cons: "The bumpy ride"
Cons: "Crowded, upcomfortable seats. Food for sale on plane all contains wheat, except potato chips. Other airline have a much broader selection of food."
Pros: "We did get a beverage and snack."
Cons: "Flight attendants don't even acknowledge the passenger s existence. They talk to each other and ignore the passengers."
Pros: "The pilot was great. Avoided turbulence and arrived about 20min early. Easy to find seat and stow bag. Smooth takeoff and landing."
Cons: "Alaska airlines was who I thought I was riding with but the itinerary changed past min. Gate change and the airline itself was changed. Really confusing since I printed my boarding pass the night before."
Cons: "They lost our luggage even though we have 50 minutes between connecting flights."
Cons: "I got tranafered to 4 different gates aand my flight was delayed for 3 hrs with no explaination and the staff didn't try to help"
Pros: "Overall solid flight"
Pros: "On time flight, as comfortable as can be hoped for."
Cons: "This flight was on time, but Dallas to Huntsville is frequently delayed. Also, the airplane is often quite old-appearing on the interior."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "We landed at a different airport than we were supposed to and no announcement was made. We weren’t updated at all! When we finally landed in bogota we missed our connections and couldn’t get on another flight for 14 hours"
Pros: "Crew was pleasant and responsive."
Pros: "Regular updates on delay timing"
Cons: "Landing in PHL so late we were lucky to make our connection"
Pros: "Short flight, available texting for t mobile customers"
Cons: "AA overbooked their flights too much"
Pros: "we upgraded to economy plus seats and it made all the difference - just having an extra 4-5 inches made the 11 hour flight so much more tolerable than the trip to Madrid."
Pros: "Crew is usually very nice"
Cons: "Customer service is horrible. No tvs on the seats, no entertainment shown no options for snack except hummus privacy is no concern to American"
Pros: "Flight crew had a great sense of humor - they were extra friendly while boarding as well, made traveling with AA the best! Boarding was delayed due to previous flight but our pilot even managed to get us to Denver early! Wish I could have this crew everywhere I go!"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, free private entertainment, very nice to be able to charge my devices. Our pilots were great."
Cons: "Still don't like that you have to pay for meals or snacks. I received two meals on my connecting South American flight. Stewards still not all that pleasant."
Pros: "No major issues with the flight itself, see below for MAJOR issues with check-in and checking bags."
Cons: "The organization with American Airlines at Charles de Gaulle was absolutely pathetic. I understand it's a busy airport, but NONE of the other airlines had lines like American did. Then by the time you get up to an American airline employee, incompetence was written all over their faces. The straw that broke the camel's back was that they insisted on separating my partner and me while doing security questions, meanwhile other parties who were together were not separated (LGBT discrimination). This pushed us back 10 minutes--we were separated and he was having to wait for me after the questioning to get my bag checked, too. I'll add that we arrived to the airport with over 2 hours to spare before our flight which should have been more than enough time. We probably would have missed the flight if not for a few decent Charles de Gaulle employees who bumped us though lines at customs when they realized the time crunch, no thanks to anyone with American Airlines. I heard so many saying they will not use American Airlines again, and how saving a few dollars was not worth the headache. Flying is already stressful enough, don't make it that much worse."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Entertainment was appreciated. Flight was smooth and landed early. There was just no offer of food unless for purchase and I was hungry and look forward to that. Even just a bag of pretzels!"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Very efficient crew. Pleasant enough"
Cons: "Bumpy flight, obviously not something that could be helped (tho the pilot came on and said he was hoping to find a smoother altitude, greatly appreciate him trying!)"
Pros: "Flight was fine."
Cons: "Diverted due to low weather and low fuel. Sat on the tarmac for almost two hours before we could get fuel and be on our way."
Pros: "the flight attendants were very professional on this flight. the lead attendant was very personable when giving announcements and going through the safety procedures on the public address system. the other two attendants were also very professional in their services as well."
Cons: "flight 1920 was almost an hour late with boarding. I am extremely upset because I paid an extra $75.00 on day of to get home earlier but ended up getting home at the same time that I would have on my original flight because the flight was late and I missed my shuttle because 1920 was late boarding. I should be reimbursed SOMETHING for my inconvenience...especially after paying $75.00 extra for an earlier flight."
Pros: "Had a great flight and attendants on the plane were helpful."
Pros: "Refreshments we're good and the crew was nice."
Cons: "There weren't any screens in the headrests for individual movie-viewing."
Cons: "Pretzels too salty"
Cons: "Flight attendant rude. No smile, only saw them once"
Cons: "Seats packed it tight. One less row and a few more inches would be better. Shame the airlines have making more money in mind and not passenger comforts"
Pros: "I was traveling with a pet and they were very kind and helpful to me."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Full meal"
Pros: "Crew on flight to Charleston was nice"
Cons: "I was supposed to make the trip from BNA to CHS at 2:30, we were delayed over 1.5 hours, making me miss this flight by 5 mins. Then I was put on 10pm flight which was cancelled! They couldn't get me to HHH until 6pm the following day. I would have missed my entire conference. The closest they could get me was a 10pm flight to charleston, then I had to rent (AND PAY FOR) a car and drive 2 hours to HHH in the middle of the night. The customer service people were less than helpful. They aren't allowed to help you make car reservation. My flight on the way back from HHH to BNA was a similar story. Thankfully my connecting flight was delayed an hour or there was no way I would have made it."
Pros: "One I love free sodies and two I love free sodies with a smile. I definitely got both with this flight crew."
Cons: "Not enough sodies and I couldn't smell my own farts."
Pros: "Once in flight, it was a standard smooth ride to Tokyo."
Cons: "Late announcement of flight delay. Cost me 4 extra hours at LAX, doing nothing. Then, flight delayed again for 30 minutes prior to boarding...and yet AGAIN while on the plane...because of a water shortage. What had the crew been doing in between flights?? Lastly, these delays caused the plane to arrive in Tokyo at 12:30AM (originally it was 10:30PM). All transportations options were closed. I had to take a $90 USD taxi fare into the city. JAL or AA should have given travel vouchers to everyone who needed them. BAD SERVICE, BAD COMMUNICATIONS, BAD RATING."
The staff were very polite and always attentive to requests.
Pros: "great seats and flight"
Cons: "not that i can think of"
Pros: "Lots of movie choices"
Cons: "Filthy plane, one rear lavatory out of order, the other lavatory was dirty from the start of the trip, one of our displays was inoperable and when the crew promised to look into resetting they never got back to us. Just a disappointment compared to other airlines we have flown."
Cons: "A safe, quiet set of flights. Nothing really unusual, which is a good thing. US airlines suck badly in cuisine and this trip reinforcedji"
Pros: "Seats were uncomfortable and badly maintained. Seatback stowage netting was detached and useless. There was an equipment change (new larger aircraft) I had a B (aisle seat) on the original aircraft and on the new plane my "B" seat became a middle seat. This was completely unsatisfactory."
Cons: "Lack of communication from flight deck or cabin crew as to engine shutdown and takeoff delay at MSO. Just plain irritating and completely unnecessary"
Cons: "The size of the seats"
Pros: "Good flight, nice staff."
Cons: "Food not the greatest and flight over-crowded."
Pros: "Nothing at all."
Cons: "Could have had a polite crew, ran on time, or had internet that lasted more than 10 minutes after I paid for it. I'll never fly united again."
Cons: "United airlines staff were very grumpy"
Pros: "These people have no idea who or what United Airlines is. They work for Delta, and make sure they tell everyone about it."
Cons: "See above. The flight itself was fantastic. Larger planes are the best! Thank you!"
Cons: "Almost didn’t get breakfast because I was asleep. Crew wasn’t very good about picking up trash."
Pros: "The flight from MSO to DEN on United always involves small planes. Almost always the crew and attendant() are efficient and friendly. Tonight though our attendant made us all feel like we were in 1st class. She called everyone by their names when serving (Mr. O'Connor could I get you a beverage?), checked on us multiple times and was so friendly that she stood way out!"
Cons: "Squealing brake pads need some attention"
Pros: "Flight attendants were exceptional. Loading was quick and easy. The flight left the gate on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "I am old enough that I still feel insulted getting a tiny bag of pretzels on a flight."
Pros: "The plane, crew and boarding was great, and the food and drinks were quite good. Legroom in standard economy class was passable for a 6'2" person."
Cons: "I booked through the United website as trip from US, have Silver status on United, and Lufthansa's policies of not allowing advance (1-2 mo before flight) seat selection (never on UA nor LH websites) are just horrible. Hard to get through on 800 number, and 1 day before trip answer was still to do it in Frankfurt. Economy plus was $1000 more/person, and even then no guarantee I could choose a seat far in advance. Then, at computer kiosk in Frankfurt, they had a wrong diagram of the plane,as we ended up on what turned out to be a no-recline row which I would never get. I'm 6'2", 230lbs, and wasn't able to sleep on that flight. Had I been able to reserve a seat behind a bulkhead or in exit row 2mos in advance, I would have been fine."
Pros: "No delay, not crowded"
Pros: "Crew was super friendly"
Cons: "Small plane, bumpy ride is to be expected. This one was a bit more than even I’m used to."
Pros: "The crew! Very nice people :)"
Cons: "Small plane, broken media pads and headphones. Food was awful."
Pros: "Ample leg room, not just meat"
Cons: "Would like to purchase everything at beginning, keeps surprise out of the cost. Seems like i could not get my sests."
Pros: "Atleast was able to reach my destination."
Cons: "No leg room. Definitely overpriced"
Pros: "Friendly flight attendant"
Cons: "Long walk to gate"
Cons: "They were not on schedule and I missed my connection. They said it was not their problem and can't compensate me. On top of all that they were rude!"
Pros: "Coffee with cookies!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "As with all other flights, no room to breath."
Cons: "Was stuck in a middle seat on a full flight"
Cons: "Flight was four hours delayed."
Pros: "The touch down was smooth."
Cons: "Revise your website to state accurately of the luggage allowance. I watched the people in distress because their carry on was a little too bulky."
Pros: "The flight was good and the crew was great the flight attendants were very professional and down to earth the gate agent helped me with my seat due to I did not have a assigned one confusing. Overall it was good"
Cons: "Did not like the way the entertainment had to be watched."
Cons: "I would never pay for movies.it is too tacky that everything is for sale"
Cons: "Delayed departure again"
Cons: "Original flight was rebooked, and I almost missed seeing my dying grandmother. Got no apology for this huge inconvenience and stress."
Pros: "Pre-check was fast Ride was pleasant Crew friendly."
Cons: "It was all good."
Pros: "We flew 440 miles an hour on the way back just because the flight was delayed a little bit. Now that is Customer Service."
Cons: "I wish I got more food on the plane. Food isn't expensive but flights are."
Pros: "Super friendly and helpful"
Cons: "all pretty good"
Pros: "Everything went better than expected, no line, easy flights , short layovers. Everything just went smooth."
Pros: "On time coming & going. Friendly"
Pros: "The seats on the plane where nice and spacious. One employee from customer service named Aisha was a great help and took the time to listen to my issues and help get me on a new flight"
Cons: "The company overall is completely unorganized and majority of the employees are disrespectful and unwilling to help. During my layover in Washington DC my gate number was changed I was never informed despite signing up for notifications and having an eTicket that was never updated. When I asked one of the employees for the proper gate number they gave me another gate number that was incorrect I ran to that gate and the person there than give me the correct number but by the time I got to that gate I missed my flight After dealing with that I was lucky enough to talk to somebody who was helpful at the customer service table. She did her best to accommodate myself and three other friends unfortunately the next flight was over booked and only had two seats open. When I tried to explain to the attendants by gate A6 (Jackie and E Badi) that I have a party of four and I could not leave anyone behind they called security on me for not going on the plane. Once the security officers came they heard both stories saw that this was a waste of their time and told us all to file a complaint after getting the employees names. I would never recommend this airline to anyone traveling!!!"
Pros: "The layovers that I had in Denver were the perfect amount of time. Boarding and baggage was a breeze."
Cons: "It's flying so there isn't much room in the seats but that is to be expected."
Pros: "staff very professional"
Cons: "small seats"
Pros: "A little snack going with the beverage service. The wifi was cheaper than Air Canada's."
Cons: "Minimum legroom, entertainment system is not on demand and u have to pay for that...Wifi is way slower than the one on Air Canada. Also, boarding was very chaotic and the gate agent seems really not wanna work there."
Pros: "The staff was very helpful. When overhead storage was full, bags were checked at no additional cost."
Cons: "Had trouble with the highly advertised entertainment. On the trip from Rapid to Chicago, the entertainment wouldn't work. I was fairly comfortable in my aisle seat, but think it I had to be in a center of window seat, I would have been very uncomfortable."
Cons: "Seats were EXTREMELY uncomfortable and felt like a very old mattress in desespertly need of replacement"
Pros: "Also a very solid crew!"
Cons: "United delayed the flight. This information became available about an hour in advance- well after we drove two hours (We live in Montana) to get to the airport. The attendants said / not our problem. I called United's Customer Service number to discuss ways of mediating the delay that resulted in us missing the wedding venue and entire reason we booked the $1400 flight. I again got a "not my problem" response- no the flights can be modified, no we will not provide vouchers, no we really don't care that our poor quality and service cost you and your family tremendously in time, effort, and lost memories. I know we are at the mercy of airlines, but what a painful disappointment. My experience with Delta has been better and I suggest avoiding United Airlines if other flight options exist.... Even consider a very long drive over the use of the airline."
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good . I had last row on plane, aisle seat in central section. Good because there are only 3 seats across. Flight attendants very pleasant."
Cons: "The recline of my seat was not working properly. I could push it back and it would have been quite comfortable since seat slid forward a bit when back rest went back, but my seat would just spring back into upright position."
Pros: "I cancelled this flight.....not sure why Kayak keeps sending me these emails."
