Airline reviews

They changed plans after I had checked in and had my confirmed seat. They changed my comfort seat to main cabin and even though there were 4 available comfort seats showing, I wasn’t able to pick one. When I asked at the counter if I could switch back to my comfort she said no.. bc someone else may have higher status than me which is ridiculous bc I was originally comfort. On the flight, I asked the flight attendant to switch and he said once they closed the doors he’d let me know, and he never said anything to me again. Plus we were an hour late arriving, because apparently we weren’t cleared to land and we had to circle. Not sure what’s up with Delta lately, but this was a crappy experience.

It’s different compared to Southwest flights. Comfortable seating. Nice staff. Drinks and coffee free.

Crew was rude, and continued to bang into me as they passed and ram the cart into my seat.

Sat on ground at Lax for 40 min after landing because some one was at our gate. After a 3 1/2 hour flight it sucks to just sit there and wait for no reason that the pilot could give us. So much for ever getting out of the airport on time.

Everything was great until landed and had to wait 25 minutes to get into our gate! Can’t think of a good excuse for that on such a late, cross-country flight. Plenty of prep time!

Pros: "I wouldn’t know t"
Cons: "To let me on the flight"
Cons: "The pilot take off, navigation in the air, and landing were horrible ."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic. Seats are narrow in space, but more comfortable than other airlines."

Pros: "Ok"
Cons: "So uncomfortable with tiny seats"
Pros: "Good flight, got home early."
Cons: "the food"
Pros: "Assertive"
Cons: "Hand out headphones, my phone doesn’t have compatibility."
Pros: "price great; direct flight;"
Cons: "cramped"
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "The seat was ok, but the crew was very good and helpful"
Cons: "Good company, have the very good attendants"
Pros: "On time, comfortable flight. Great crew and service."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was great."
Pros: "They were awesome"
Cons: "Nothing I was at my best on the best airline and crew"
Pros: "At the airport things were quite, security was fast. Boarding was fast and smooth. I’ve flown with delta a lot and also a lot of others (cheaper ones) and I’m always happy when I get a delta flight things are always calmer and less crowded!"
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Crew was great as always. Friendly and professional"
Cons: "We had a delay that complicated our getting home but all ended up OK"
Pros: "Crew was amazing and super helpful."
Cons: "Just the fumes of fuel inside the cabin was nauseating. Never had similar issue with air travel before."
Cons: "Leg room was lacking."
Pros: "New plane. Great movie selection. More stylish seats + bathroom. Overall very good and I think Delta has really made an effort to improve it's service. It's noticeable."
Cons: "Plane felt very dry compared to others. The electrical plug outlet jams right at around your knee level. Bread was cold and rock hard (seriously, can we not come up with a good solution for this?)."
Pros: "Left ontime great breakfast. Good service No complaints"
Cons: "I loved the trip No negative comments."
Pros: "Cabin service was decent"
Cons: "Food was cold. First class service could have been more attentive. While trying to sleep crew talked the entire time."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to check my carry-on to for free"
Cons: "I hated the seat and zone that I was assigned. I was literally the last seat in the back and also the very last person to board and get off the plane. It was terrible. Please select better seats for customers"
Pros: "Great services ce."
Pros: "The Gate Agents were excellent and very helpful with accommodating our family traveling with an infant and a six year old."
Cons: "The flight attendant saw that we were confused about the seat map and did not offer any assistance."
Pros: "Everything. Pilots and crew"
Pros: "Nice crew members always polite and courteous.maybe over polite if anything. Australians don't require subservient service deliverers. The constant "your very welcome" regardless of the service and response to that delivery is off-putting to me. But al in all pretty good in most areas."
Cons: "ON ticketing at New Orleans I wasn't allocated a seat number. At the gate shortly prior to boarding I needed to attend the desk for that allocation. I was also not told which Terminal the plane would go to in LAX and which terminal the connecting flight would be leaving from. They were not sure! Consequently I floundered around at LAX wasting time and bothering people for information that should have been known to me. The security checks are over the top and inconsistent in the US."
Pros: "I liked getting home"
Cons: "I didn’t like the delays without warning or any benefits at the end."
Cons: "The overhead bin did not stay down low enough so that I could place my bag in. It would lower then before I could place my bag raise slightly by a few inches. For someone of my height (5’5”) that was problematic. Fortunately another passenger saw my dilemma and held the bin lower to its full opening capacity. This also momentarily slowed down the boarding process."
Cons: "If some takes up two seats , then they should buy two seats. Very simple"
Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly and the plane was half empty."
Cons: "When are the Airlines going to start serving a decent coffee on board? It does not matter Delta is now serving Starbucks. Something they do that messes up the whole thing, probably overheat for too long."
Cons: "There was no gluten free snack option."
Cons: "Extremely long queue"
Pros: "Friendly staff.."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Good service, on time, clean planes"
Cons: "The commuter Jets seats are really small unless you pay for Delta Comfort"
Pros: "Free pretzels and drink"
Cons: "Not enough overhead space for everyone's carry-on bags so I sat with mine down by my feet which left me little foot space. Was a bit uncomfortable"

Cons: "The dirty seats, the awful food and wine"
Cons: "N/an/a"
Pros: "The fact that there were no delays!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great gate agent at JFK on the layover."
Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."
Pros: "Left ontime, arrived 30minutes early."
Pros: "Seats in economy had a little more elbow room and space. They offered free movies and free satelite tv as well as better snack options."
Cons: "Not being able to pick seats until the gate. Traveled with 4 friends and all of us sat separate. 4 of us in middle seats."
Cons: "Delay from Seattle to pasco."
Pros: "Meg, our stewardess came out to tell us there would not be any coffee on a 6 AM flight and that we had time to get coffee, if needed. She kept us informed of flight delays, helpful with my bags."
Cons: "There was nothing that could be done, but due to construction at the airport, waited on tarmac for an hour before we could get to a gate, then they had problems with the ramp and that had to be addressed. But pilot was very good about keeping us informed on delays and he was as frustrated as we were."
Pros: "Very nice employees. Coke, peanuts good."
Cons: "Outgoing plane had tv screens, large, with good movie choices, but was an hour late. Returning, if you brought a phone, you can get an app. My phone is about four inches. No good movies. Seats even smaller on this "new plane." Deboarding chaos. Everyone unhappy. Hour late again."
Cons: "It was a great flight. We got there earlier then arrive time. Thank You"
Pros: "The complimentary entertainment was great, made the flight enjoyable."
Cons: "The con was the need for a connecting flight and the second plane didn't have the same perks."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I have been with Delta for years and their response to me about booking my flight and using the payment method was they are working on it and there is nothing they can do. They would not even offer to hold my flight for 24 hours in case they fixed the issue within that time frame. It was very disappointing."

Wis there was more leg room for tall persons like myself.

Good

Pros: "The scedule"
Cons: "No"
Cons: "Well just some more variety of foods I guess"
Cons: "Extremely slow check in process, which translates in suitcase left behind and all the inconvenience of that. No on board entertainment. Aircraft is very old"

Pros: "I just enjoyed the flight, food, and professionalism!"
Cons: "The seats were a but uncomfortable."
Pros: "Food and drink selection"
Cons: "Cleanliness of bathrooms. But it’s the passengers to blame . I felt like people did not clean after themselves"
Pros: "The cree was very accommodating. The comfort level was adequate. The food was not very good."
Cons: "The flight experience was what I expected. What I didn't expect was that our luggage was sent on a later flight and that just triggered other mishaps, headaches and spent more money on our pre-arranged pick up service and other unnecessary expenses.."
Cons: "The fact that they completely lost my luggage and can't even tell us where it is or when it will arrive. In addition, they refused to have the luggage delivered to the hotel once it does arrive. Inept customer service"
Pros: "The seats were spacious and the crew was friendly."
Pros: "Need more leg room. airlines are craning us in like sardines"
Cons: "A little pepper to go with the omelette breakfast"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Poor costumer service . Luggage was wet . All of the clothes ruined"
Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Wish that flight were shorter, perhaps with hub in Miami or Dallas."
Pros: "On time. Short layover"
Cons: "I didn't know that if you are sitting in rear section and there is a line to the bathroom, you aren't allowed to use the one in front, even if there is no line"
Pros: "But... when I purchased a tkt online. For some reason the name on last ticket I purchased was on the next COPA ticket. A 300.00 purchase. Because COPA does not change ticket holders names it was a total loss. I bought the ticket for a student in Cali to come and meet me in Panama City I couldn't afford to buy a second ticket so Victor stayed home. Every other Airline charges a minimal fee to make changes on a ticket so now there is a credit at Copa Airlines for a person that will never ever use it.... such a waste of time and money. Barb Langman from Lafleche Saskatchewan Canada"

Pros: "Thankfully we missed the holiday traffic so we were able to check in and board effectively."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "food was bad."
Cons: "Unfriendly staff at Panama airport"
Pros: "Clean, new airplane"
Cons: "The business class seats and service were simple and basic"
Cons: "Venía de Mexico a Panamá y el vuelo se retrasó. Cuando fui a abordar el vuelo a Costa Rica habian cambiado la sala de abordaje y por poco me deja el vuelo. Quizá lo hubieran anunciado en el vuelo que venia de México me hubiera ahorrado tiempo y carreras."
Pros: "Nice staff, fast flight, as we had been traveling 24 hours this last leg was appreciatively uneventful."
Pros: "Personal entertainment screen."
Cons: "The food!!!"
Cons: "Nunca es la puerta que dicen, sino que hay que buscar otra puerta y uno pregunta si es esa puerta y dicen que no , la mandan a otra puerta, debería de coordinar bien las salidas"
Pros: "Viajo todas las semanas. En todo este tiempo nunca había topado con personal tan amable, simpático, alegre como el de COPA en Nueva Orleans tanto en el mostrador como en el abordaje. Les felicito!! Ojalá todas las estaciones siguieran este ejemplo."
Pros: "Copa provided us with food vouchers while plane was delayed."
Cons: "Plane delayed for about 5 hours due to wheather and and a lot of time spent by the crew trying to fit multiple and large carry-ons in the cabin."
Pros: "I LOVE Copa!"
Cons: "It was unfortunate to show up at Newark to find out that the flight to Panama was on United. I prefer not to fly on United and did not like the service provided. My connection in Panama on Copa was much better!"

Flight boarded late and left late making the Sao Paulo connection more stressful..

Left on the dark all flight.crew disappeared after safety video, poor food and drink service and cramped seating.

The only thing need to be better is pick up the trash before the landing

Need certificate yellow fevor we dont know this,boarding impossible

Hire English speaking people ! Terrible service and we almost lost our flight because the stuff didn’t want to check us in 1h before stating that it’s too late !

the fly too late. delay

Cons: "Seats looked older generation and configuration not great"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "Seats way too cramped."
Cons: "Call for stewards was not working and the temperature of the flight was miserable. Kept asking to reduce the cold and nothing. I had a window seat and there was no way to avoid the air/ac on my face the entire flight. MISERABLE!"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "punctuality"
Cons: "45 minutes between getting off the plane and getting your bags is ridiculous"
Pros: "Foot rest in coach"
Cons: "Airline reservation staff is rude. LATAM smart phone app not integrated with their systems properly"
Cons: "I paid U$100,00 to dispatch a piece of luggage and it did not arrived."
Pros: "The crew that flew us there was great"
Cons: "they overbooked the flights and the way they communicated it to passengers was a complete disaster. I was able to board and travel but I had to sneak out of the actual line and show my visa appointment receipt to a latam staff person. It was very hard to talk to the staff most of them were just screaming "go to the line" and were not really keen to listening to what passengers had to say. I found a latam person that wasn't really dealing with this situation and managed to get him to talk to other latam staff about my visa appointment. It was pretty stressful for me to have to deal with the possibility of missing such an important event without a good reason."
Pros: "Crew were helpful. I was given the wrong seat number and they helped sort it out. They also did priority boarding for us when the queue was ridiculous"
Cons: "The check in process was a mess with people going from all queues and it took far too long. They also have me the wrong seat number for boarding causing lots of confusion"
Pros: "Close to nothing. If i had to applaud something it would be the fact that you have an option to check in early via your mobile or laptop."
Cons: "LATAM was incredibly unprofessional, alarming, and entirely non-communicative. After a 3 hour delay that caused me (and tons of others) to miss a connecting international flight, LATAM’s telephone servers had the nerve to claim I was a no show and needed to pay them for my absence. This resulted in a long discussion where I was held on hold until they could adequately determine that yes i missed the flight because they held us late. This was the only way that i was able to avoid their charge to me for being a “no show.”"
Cons: "Space!!!!"
Cons: "Don’t charge for seat selection. Every passenger deserves to choose their own comfort."
Pros: "The worst flight in my life"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Crew, on board entertainment..."
Cons: "Boarding was not organized. A lot of food options but only one dish, missed the salad or other options compared to other companies such as Delta, Lufthansa, KLM and etc.. Drinks were ok, lacked alcohol options compared to other companies."
Cons: "The time it took to open the door upon arrival"
Cons: "Great service, excellent food, very good quality, comfortable, thanks so much for everything. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️"
Cons: "I missed my flight because a connecting flight I booked with you all got canceled would I be able to get a refund or claim back"
Cons: "TV at each seat"
Cons: "Better aircraft and personnel should smile and be more friendly"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Try to avoid LATAM. Actually low cost competition is offering a better service. Latam grew too much and the service is bad. They are making too many mistakes such as not delivering basic information such as where to pick up luggage claim. Honest advice: look for alternatives and avoid big headaches"
Cons: "more seat space and padding, no charge for soft drinks"
Pros: "That it took me from A-B"
Cons: "My wife’s hand luggage was taken off her and put into the hold, against her wishes. When we arrived in São Paulo, the bag handle had been totally destroyed and the bag dented. During the flight we were only given water, the toilet had no paper or soap. Very poor"
Pros: "Boarding and Check in was really good"
Cons: "The temperature of the plane was too cold. A bit warmer would have been better."
Pros: "Arrived on time"

Cons: "You have to pay for everything"
Pros: "Entertainment system"

Pros: "I loved the service, attention they flight attendants gave me and feeling like I was at home.."
Cons: "My only complain would be the customers that are in airline, but that’s not the airlines fault..."
Pros: "The seat"
Cons: "The food. Awful. Awful. Beyond awful."
Pros: "Good service by attendants. Good food."
Cons: "The long delays one after the other. Delayed take off, re routing mid-air to Rio instead of São Paulo. The trip took +4 hours more than planned. Chaotic."
Pros: "Tryp Hotel at GRU"
Cons: "We should get some sort of refund. Just food and hotel is not enough"
Pros: "Gave good snacks"
Cons: "Annnouncements weren't clear in English or Spanish only in Portuguese"
Pros: "The food was really good. The service was good as well. The movie selection was very good."
Cons: "Economy seats are really uncomfortable for long flights, my knees suffered."
Pros: "The plane was clean, the flight was good with minimum turbulences."
Cons: "The food was poor. At least three middle rows did not have any entertainment. We reported the problem, the chief/supervisor flight attendant said that she was going to assign us new seats, she then disappear and did nothing to solve the problem. I spoke with another flight attendant requesting to speak with this supervisor again, she said that I rather voice my complaint through latam.com and the mentioned supervisor, not only lied to us, but never showed up. It appears that latam needs to reinforce their staff training or perhaps to renew their staff supervisors and train them to avoid unnecessary lies to their passengers."
Cons: "I have time toget the other flight but they already have every thing ready to let us in Sao Pablo, I have to stay 1 day. That was very bad."
Pros: "The movie choices are endless!"
Cons: "I wish I was told about the Lan app to download before we took off"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight delayed one hour and the air conditioning wasn’t functioning"
Cons: "Flight was an hour late. Should have boarded 30 minutes earlier!"

Cons: "Serviço de bordo"
Cons: "Gol app is terrible and buggy."
Pros: "Aircraft was comfortable"
Cons: "Checkin crew had very little knowledge of laws and almost avoided my nephew to board the plane even with proper documentation. Flight was delayed more than an hour. Poor communication to explain why"
Pros: "I always have a good experience with Gol, the Gol Confort Seats are great, attentive crew, puncntuality."
Pros: "Space"
Cons: "Wish there was more snacks."
Pros: "Part of the crew was very attentive and well humored. Food was delicious. I appreciated the leg space and the wider bathrooms."
Cons: "There was no USB not outlet charger. The touch screen was not working well, the console was loose and the movie options were all outdated."

Pros: "Crew attention"
Cons: "Possibility to do check in online, it’s stupid to say that because I’m a foreigner I can’t do it online"
Pros: "Excelente"
Cons: "Price"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Not remarkable at all. Terrible food."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, helpful, overall awesome. Comfort level was great."
Cons: "There was no entertainment provided, and besides extra legroom, no real benefits of paying the extra for GOL premium. This is also the first time I have ever had to pay for luggage on an International flight, very disappointing."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Anyone who flies the route NVT-GRU knows two things. The departure and landing times are unreliable and they always....always over sell seats. Navegantes (NVT) is a very small airport but connects to so many international flights. The city and many of the neighboring towns have become vacation hotspots. I personally fly this route twice a month these days So many bad things happen because of their poor on-time results and overbooking. The worst of which is missing your connections. This was the third time in 2 months that I’ve missed my connection in São Paulo to NYC. This time I purposely took an earlier flight 6:40pm so I would have no chance to miss my 11pm flight to New York. Then a 2 hour and 20 minute delay! My God ...really? Another missed flight. GOL you CAN do BETTER! ."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and friendly"
Cons: "The discomfort of the seats!"
Cons: "Was charged 50 for my bag"
Pros: "Boarding was organized and punctual."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "There was one person helping a huge amount of people. It took one hour to check in. No common sense. They were helping the domestic flight people first with less bags to check in and the international flights were backed up with people missing their connections. No common sense at all. Incompetent service."
Pros: "Better snack"
Cons: "Snack"
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable seats for such a long flight 10 hrs"
Cons: "I didn't know about the luggage extra fee.when i buy a ticket ,i mean that include the luggage! In this point , i was very disappointed!!!"
Pros: "Free snack and drink."
Cons: "No wi-fi is available"
Cons: "Due to weather conditions, the flight was delayed an hour and a half."
Pros: "Cabinstaff were friendly and professional"
Pros: "As a wheelchair user I was treated well from the ticket agents, escorts, gate agents and flight crew."

Cons: "Space on the seats, between the seats."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Cons: "No kosher food"
Cons: "Espaço das cadeiras!"
Pros: "La tripulación y la atención muy buena. La distancia entre los asientos excelente"
Cons: "Lo que no me gusta es que una aerolínea que vuela entre Brasil y Argentina la tripulación no hable español, eso me parece pésimo"
Pros: "nice, clean plane; nice check-in experience"
Cons: "Crammed bus to the airplane"
Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Flight extremely delayed, people accompaning crew boarded first and took space in the overhead, i tried to change seats no no one at the gate was willing to work"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Every step of the way from checking in to picking up the baggage was very frustrating... one of the worst flying experiences I have had."
Pros: "Space between seats"
Cons: "Lack of food options"
Pros: "Excellent crew members !"
Pros: "On time and the flight wasn't cancled like their partner airline."
Pros: "It was a short flight so there was no entertainment and I believe the snack was just a snack. But neither of those two things were necessary anyway, I was quite happy to just take the short trip without. I like GOL, it's a nice airline and the people all seem very happy to work."
Cons: "Although not really necessary, it would have been nice if the inflight magazine could also have English because most of us first language English people don't speak a second language, unfortunately!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "The time"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed due to bad weather which was not the airlines fault but they gave us no updates then didn't help at all once we missed all or connections. In the end, we had to purchase new flights from Sao Paulo to Sydney to make our important function on Wednesday morning. We went to the Etihad desk in São Paulo and they did nothing to help us except suggest we complain via the website. The worst flight experience of my life!"
Cons: "The food."
Pros: "Actual flight was fine, uneventful"
Cons: "Check in at Santos Dumont Airport in Rio was absurdly slow -- just three or four agents for a mob of people. Each agent seemed to take 15 mins to issue each boarding pass and check bags. Many passengers were in a state of semi-panic. They moved like molasses. After arriving at Garulhos in São Paulo, those same bags took 40 mins to come out, causing me to almost miss a connecting flight."

Boarding: I was asked to check my carry on complimentary. I assume the staff believed my handbag was too big. Crew: n/a outside of the snack service. Comfort: the turbulence was so bad I was nauseous. I looked for the bag behind the seat and it looked used. Food: n/a except for the complimentary cookies. Those taste good. Entertainment: only allowed for Sprint/T-Mobile customers for some reason. My flight two days before included entertainment so this was disappointing. American Airlines spelled my name incorrectly which resulted in me being unable to use pre-check on both flights. I am overall disappointed with this experience.

The flight was an hour late getting into New Orleans. We landed in Philadelphia 30 minutes late. We sat on the tarmac for 20 more minutes. I ordered a wheelchair because I cannot walk such distances. None came after 30 minutes. I had to walk in short spells to get to baggage. It was a disaster flight. Lucky it was not cancelled.

Liked everything about this flight. They could have been a little more transparent as to the delay. But the pilot did get us to our connection with plenty of time to spare.

Great crew!

Both ticket agents and flight attendants were very pleasant to deal with. There was no entertainment on the flights and the charger in my seat was inoperable.

Pros: "Crew did the best they could under the circumstances. All of us had to wait for the plane due to weather. Once onboard everything went as well as it could."
Cons: "boarding, seating, entertainment"
Cons: "I had my period and desperately needed to use the bathroom. We were told to stay in our seats The entire flight even though there wasn’t much turbulence. The flight attendant yelled at me over the intercom to return to my seat when I tried to get up so I ended up bleeding through my tampon."
Cons: "Wheel got stuck during takeoff. Had to fly standby to get home. Originally told I would not get home that day. It was 8 am"
Cons: "Sat on runway when we landed took forever to get to gate. Late on a non stop w good weather"
Pros: "It was acceptable."
Pros: "The plane was nice. The captain was friendly and informative, and the flight was great."
Cons: "The food was pretty mediocre with a small soggy sandwich that I didn't bother to eat. They force you to watch a very long and extremely boring trailer for Disney. You can't turn it off and have to sit through one bugman movie trailer after another."
Cons: "A bit of food would have been nice on a 5 1/2 hour flight!"
Pros: "Nice aircraft once I got to Texas. From my hometown the plane was kind of old."
Cons: "Well they lost my luggage after my original flight was delayed 2+ hours. Rebooked my flight but never communicated to me whether they would handle my bag transfer or if I needed to go get them myself From the baggage claim to put into the correct flight. So I had no clothes..."
Pros: "Nothing, the flight was cancelled and we missed our friends 70th birthday celebration."
Cons: "Staff at the ticket counter were curt, rude, and patronizing. They were ill equipped to deal with the situation."
Pros: "Width of the seat is nice"
Cons: "Boarding process is not great and delays while already boarded are terribly frustrating"
Pros: "The screens allowing us and our children to be entertained in the plane."
Cons: "Not had our plane delayed for over an hour."
Pros: "Movies were great!"
Cons: "They didn’t give customs forms until exiting the plane. Caused huge problems for everyone. Sandwich was still frozen inside."
Cons: "Snack options aren’t good."
Cons: "The guy who’s checking me in he’s very kind.he is so nice person."
Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Space in seats"
Pros: "The customer service on British Airways is excellent. The meal served on the overnight flight was wonderful."
Cons: "My original flight was rerouted due to a connection delay. They lost our baggage due to rerouting our flight from American airways. We were told that our bags would be delivered the same day and we are still waiting on our bags."
Cons: "Seats were small"
Pros: "organized boarding, quick and professional, flight crew was awesome, very comfortable flight, much appreciated no"
Cons: "No entertainment options on 2+ hour flight. Would have been nice to have."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our connecting flight to New Orleans was cancelled and we had to rent a car or wait until the next flight out which was 5pm the next day. We opted to rent a car and Had to cancel our return flight home to be refunded. American Airlines cancelled multiple flights and were in total disarray. Still waiting to see if they will honor the refund"
Pros: "I took my girlfriend on her first airplane ride! The flight was bumpless from wheels to wheels. The Pilots did a fantastic job! Thank you so much for a remarkable first plane trip! THEN!!!! The have Buffalo Trace Bourbon! I mean.... what else do you need ?!"
Pros: "Airplane food was good"
Cons: "I was in the air 24hr, the trip was as good as it gets."
Pros: "Liked the flight. Very nice crew."
Pros: "Left on time and got us to Dallas safely"
Cons: "Due to weather (not your fault) arrival to Dallas was delayed and we nearly missed connection"
Pros: "Helpful crew - courteous in their attitude towards customers and helped tight connections get out of quickly from the rear of the plane. Smile was on for each interaction."
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 50+ mins. The exit row announcement was made twice asking customers to acknowledge verbally which was probably a communication faux pas."
Pros: "I arrived in Sydney the day I was supposed to. Everything else was a let down and was not what I paid for."
Cons: "American Airlines cancelled a flight because of ‘weather’ from Msy to dfw, all other flights from Msy to Dallas operated on time but were sold out. We were re booked flying through San Francisco, missing out on flying on qantas, which is what I had paid for since they are a premium airline. We were booked on virgin America and then United for the international flight. United charged us each for 2 bags totalling $150 each, despite we booked a ticket with qantas which allows 2 bags each. Virgin America honoured our 2 bags, but united refused to. United also has service and aircraft which do not match the levels of qantas which I has specifically sought out. I could not eat some of the food because of the poor quality, and this is something I’ve never done before on an international flight. Additionally their were a lack of amenities on both flights, and no food vouchers despite our travel delay of over 5 hours. This whole ordeal has cost me money, worktime, and created a lot of stress to where I have had to cancel meeting on my arrival in Sydney."
Pros: "Good service . Timothy was excellent . Hostess ."
Pros: "Excellent flight. No complaints!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours, then moved to the next morning at 6am. Before we got to the hotel, the flight was pushed back to 8am. All for mechanical reasons. We've flown this route before, and have had an abnormally high number of mechanical issues. They seem to use older planes for these shorter flights, and it really shows. Technology could really help ease these situations. American's app does not allow you to look at rebooking options, so we had to stand in line for a solid 30 minutes to speak to an agent. Since it was the last flight of the night, there were only 3 agents there to help an entire plane's worth of people. Calling American didn't help. They couldn't help with hotel/food vouchers. These types of vouchers seem like something else that could be distributed through the app or electronically, eliminating the need to stand in line and grow increasingly frustrated. To add to the fun, the vouchers were not event enough to get a hot dog and drink for dinner, then a coffee and pastry for breakfast. Once we got the vouchers, trying to get to the hotel was a disaster. They had 1 van, so they could get about 10 people every 30 minutes. We just took and Uber, and were eating in the restaurant by the time others were still arriving from the shuttle. There was no one from American there to help coordinate with the hotel or shuttle. We were like blind sheep wandering around looking for the van. Finally, arrive for the flight the next day, and they start boarding about 10 minutes before the 8am takeoff time. So, of course, we were late getting off the ground. Then, when we arrived in Dallas, our gate was occupied by another plane, so we got to sit on an old plane for an extra 30 minutes until another gate opened up for us. Really, other than crashing, not much else could have gone wrong. Made American look completely incompetent...which is happening more the more we use them. Next time, I'll pay a higher fare to fly with Southwest."
Pros: "Very smooth fast check in"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Boarding process was smooth and fast"
Cons: "Do you think airline management sits around boardrooms to brainstorm ways to torture its passengers more? The seats and the leg room are ridiculous. It's gotten to much worse recently."
Pros: "Timely and prepared flight."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly, flight arrived ahead of schedule, planeside check-in for baggage was expedient"
Cons: "The plane departed at least 15 minutes late but the departure time was never updated to indicate the flight was delayed...even when it was ten minutes past the beginning of boarding and the plane had not even arrived yet. Felt like an exercise to improve flight scorecard performance. The flight landed at least fifteen minutes early...but we didn't have a gate..and ended up departing the plane​approximately on time...but planeside checked baggage took almost thirty additional minutes to finally return to the plane full of waiting customers. Felt way too long....and the ground crew didn't seem to appreciate that most people had a connection..."
Pros: "We made it home."
Cons: "The entertainment system in my seat didn't work. Seat 19D on flight 2580 from MSY to LAX."
Pros: "Plane clean"
Cons: "Seat assignment process totally sucks. Wasn't possible to sit with partner even though we checked in day before. Line management at gat abysmal"
Pros: "THE SEATS WERE COMFORTABLE AND CREW AND VERY ATTENTIVE."
Pros: "Permiten facturar el equipaje de mano ya que el vuelo suele ir bastante lleno."
Cons: "No hay tolerancia con los kilos facturados. El equipaje pesaba 51 libras y me hicieron quitar peso para después aceptar que facture ena puerta de embarque."
Cons: "Inattentive flight attendants, overhead space was not well managed. Cash only"
Pros: "The flight was on time and comfortable"
Cons: "That I paid for luggage when most people waited until they were told while boarding so they checked the baggage for free even though it was obviously too large. Maybe it should be checked closer when checking in before going through security."
Pros: "Comfy"
Cons: "Sat on tarmac for 1hr and 20 minutes since tower mix up and plane was bigger so confusion on seating. I feel stressed cause I will be missing a full day of work because of this delay and pretty pissed off. Would like some sort of compensation"
Pros: "Great seats."
Cons: "Customer service both over the phone and in person not very helpful to ensure connecting flights were made. Much better experience with Southwest in regards to coordinating delayed flights. AA could have done a much better job to ensure more flyers made thei connecting flights."
Pros: "the crew was nice and helpful, the seat had a lot of room"
Cons: "The plane seemed old and didn't have the features I expect in first class"
Pros: "Left on time arrived on time"
Cons: "Air conditioning didn't work on Charlotte to ft wayne leg."
Pros: "Everything was on time. American sometimes has free movies you can watch"
Cons: "Nothing. Everything was good"
Cons: "I got stuck in DC overnight and I was not provided with a hotel or meal voucher:"
