Okay 5.3

Pros: Everything that happened before the FIRST time we boarded the flight and when we finally landed in LA. The movie selection was pretty good since I couldn’t sleep on the flight and it calmed me down. The flight that was originally 7 hours turned into 5

Cons: What Irritated me the most about this whole experience was that they waited until everyone had boarded and seated to find a maintenance problem. Credit to them for finding it before takeoff but it should’ve been caught before the plane even left the hangar or when the plane last landed. They said this would be a 15-20 min fix. This was an 8pm flight. 800 became 830, then 9. By 9:00, same problem and I start to wonder if we should switch planes. By 10, they finally tell us that we have to deplane and go to Gate 37 which is on the other side of the terminal. On the way out the flight attendant tells us that we have to hurry up to the other gate because we have to be there by 10:25 to board. I almost wanted to punch him. So we’re there. 10:25 comes and I see the screen turn to 10:40. Around 11, the announcement comes that they’re transferring the food from the other plane to our new plane which further delayed everything. As some kind of compensation, theyleft buckets of snacks and drinks for us prior to boarding as we finally boarded. Finally took off at 12:30. I was so irritated I couldn’t rest on the flight.

Pros: Danielle the woman who was handling everyone complaining at the gate. She was the only person helping anyone with whatever she could. Also the crew, weren’t properly stocked with anything, not even water. They did their best to work with the lack of supplies and information they were given. Otherwise I felt like I was in a bad version of the twilight zone. And I love that show.

Cons: Absolutely everything except for the crew listed above. The delay was never informed to anyone until check in- even then the gate’s LCD screen wasn’t even updated with a delay. They said they had to call British airlines to ask them to change the information! No one was allowed into the lounge for a 5 hour delay which is horrible. Considering the airport was under construction and the restaurants all closed an hour before boarding. It was horrible. I missed work because of this and my day rate is 800$ and all I got was a lousy $100 voucher. If Alaska airlines had, I don’t know let everyone into the lounge and provided us with more respect and something in return maybe it would be so bad. But right up to three of the boarding crew (not Danielle) who were YELLING at people. People who were tired and confused. It was the worst experience and I am a global flyer with my company.

Pros: Literally the worst flight I’ve ever been on in my life.

Cons: We were seated behind a woman who brought a sick cat into the flight. The stench of cat feces was overwhelming. When we addressed it with the staff, they were incredibly rude. I also shared that I had a very significant cat allergy. The staff continued to be incredibly rude, and eventually offered a single seat in the back, which would not accommodate the two of us. The woman next to us also expressed her extreme discomfort and was condescended and disrespected, as well. Shocking, miserable experience.

Pros: The Agents at the counter in the terminal gate were courteous.

Cons: My flight was delayed because an attendant had to be swapped out, then the replacement was stuck in traffic for an hour (why not have all attendants ready on-airport?). Comically, we taxied on the runway for over an hour, which caused more delays with the plane needing to be de-iced. Figured I'd put all that behind me, but then the flight experienced one of the worst turbulences I've been in. We jerked through the skies many times, and the pilots weren't reassuring. Thankfully we landed okay, but not after being late by multiple hours. Also, JetBlue needs to invest in its planes, esp. its Couch section. I felt like a pretzel with on room to breathe.

Cons: This is my first time with the airline. It’s safe to say I’ll wont be booking with American Airlines again in the future. The crew members were rude, unattentive and just bitter. It started with simply boarding. The lady at the desk was rude about telling me I needed to consolidate my bags. I ended up just checking the carry-on in. We asked one crew member on board if we could throw our trash away and she just seems annoyed. We also asked for ear buds and she never arrived with them simply stating they will offer/hand them out after they come around. She just seemed like she hates her job. Just terrible attitudes. very unpleasant flight.

Pros: Once I finally got on a plane, there were no problems. Lots of options for good films. Friendly crew on board the flight. Made it on time.

Cons: At JFK, I was waiting at my gate for two hours and at some point during that time, the flight switched gates. I didn't hear the announcement, and since there continued to be people around me, I saw no reason for concern until it got close to departure time and I still hadn't been prompted to begin boarding. I was trying to be patient and not bother anyone, and that was where I went wrong. I should have been more vigilant because they certainly don't go out of their way to help you at American Airlines. When I finally asked the woman at the desk when we were boarding for LA, she told me the gate had moved and was about to close, so I ran to the other gate right as they were closing the doors. The plane was still there, but they wouldn't let me through the gate. I remained calm and explained that I had a ticket for this flight. I didn't feel even the slightest bit of empathy coming from them. They put me on a long list of standby passengers, and I had to wait for several more hours until I finally got on a flight. During that time, the crew at the desks were so unfriendly and dismissive, I decided I did not want to support American Airlines again. This was the first time I had a major problem with an airline company. I tend to be a stress-free traveler, but this was a pretty awful experience overall.

Cons: We were not told we’d be sitting next to a woman with a dog. It was highly offensive to sit and eat next to a dog that smelled and panted constantly, and would shed occasionally. Why not solve this problem by asking passengers when they book a seat if they do or don’t want to sit next to pets? Not everyone can do this since many have allergies. Also, this is not hygienic. Very unsatisfied.

Cons: My main comment is that the wi-fi didn't work for all passengers. One of the reasons I flew this airline was because they promise reliable wi-fi on the flight and despite multiple attempts to troubleshoot, it never worked.

LAX
Good 6.6

Pros: Boarding was quick and easy, and they had lots of options for entertainment

Cons: The plane is very cramped. I am a very small person and I still felt like I couldn’t really move to get things under the seat in front of me. The crew also only came around with food once during the flight, and I happened to be sleeping then, so I didn not get a chance to have any food.

Cons: The beginning was a bit confusing when I needed to use JetBlue because I had to go to the help desk to figure out why they wouldn’t issue all of my boarding passes at JFK and the line took an hour just for them to tell me to get my boarding pass at LAX. Other than that it was a great flight!

Cons: I missed both meals because I was asleep. I usually get woken up by the flight staff, but this time I just missed them. The first time, I woke up on my own to see everyone finishing their food, so I asked for a meal and I got one; the second time, I woke up to see the trash being collected, but never got a chance to ask for my meal because no member of the flight staff passed me again. I landed in LA at midnight and was starving.

Pros: We arrived back home in LA fine. It was the JFK first part of the trip that was not so good. Below

Cons: Just missed cutoff for baggage check by minutes. Told it had to go on next flight but one of us would have to fly with it. We both had paid for biz class. The agent gave me another biz class seat on the next flight 2 hours later. When I waited to board the gate attendant called my name. He chatted with another associate who irritably said "I hate when they do that, I'll go talk to the captain". She came back to the other one and he tore up my ticket and issued me a seat in the last row. When I boarded I mentioned that somehow I went from biz class to that and she retorted in a mocking tone "gee, don't know how that happened". Another passenger mentioned to me that they had given my seat to a gentleman in a blazer that somehow finangled it. Crappy bitchy customer service at the gate.

Pros: Plane clean, boarding efficient, pilot cordial, flight confortable, arrived early despite delayed departure.

Cons: Because video playback system was inoperable (not an issue for me—I am happy to read during the flight) the young crew had to perform safety announcements manually but were obviously ill-practiced and inexperienced at this, bungling their reading and even seeming not fully to understand the words. (They also botched announcing introductions of the pilot and crew, not seeming confident who was on board or as if they in fact knew their names.) This was of course unprofessional but also introduced doubt how reliable they would be in an actual emergency.

Prices are per person and are for e–tickets and include all taxes & fees in USD.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
