Pros: "The crew was very professional and helpful. They were able to seat me in an exit row and took, which had ample room."
Cons: "Alaska needs to work more with their terminals to make sure their customers are getting what they need. JFK does not have TSA precheck or priority boarding, but Alaska does not tell you that beforehand. That's important!! Alaska gave me a lot of attitude about changing my flight, so I couldn't."

Pros: "Empty plane so lots of space to lounge and quick boarding"
Cons: "Sat on runway for hour after plane landed, just waiting for a gate. How is this even possible? With no offer of beverages or food. Or updates. Crew was hardly seen maybe once or twice on a six hour flight. When asked to take trash, they would reply, we are only doing drinks at the moment."
Pros: "The flight was fine and comfortable"
Cons: "I just did not like that we were on flight for 6 hours and no food was given complimentary plus there was no vegetarian food at all to eat as we don’t eat meat at all"

Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "Plane had mechanical problems coming and going"
Pros: "Everything!!!! Especially The Flight Attendant Staff. And For The Price, From Departing From JFK-NYC To LAX-Los Angeles Is Fantastic!!!! I Would Definitely Recommend This Airline To Anyone Who Wants "Great Service" At A "Great Price";-D!!!!"
Cons: "One of the male flight attendant v weird Not at all polite and V obnoxios"
Pros: "The staff was helpful and professional at every juncture - from check in to landing. The flight was smooth and landed a bit early. Tv/movie choices were great."
Cons: "Airplanes are so cramped, it’s ridiculous. I’m only 5’2” and I didn’t even have the room to bend down to reach under the seat to pick up a pen I dropped. Take out a row and give everyone more room."
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: "Awesome customer service at all times throughout the flight"
Cons: "No free snacks anymore, that’s a bummer."

Pros: "Smooth Trip, nice staff."
Cons: "seat tight and not too comfortable. Fixed armrest on aisle make it hard to get out of."
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."
Cons: "Chair was not working could not adjust Media entertainment system was not working at all. We were told these items had been broken for over two weeks. Makes you wonder about the mechanics of the rest of the airplane"
Pros: "The lounge at airport was first rate"
Cons: "It was one of the worst flight in memory in terms of servoce"
Pros: "Flight crew was professional and responsive."

Cons: "The pilot talked to us sometime via the intercom but he bearly finished his sentance. I could not hear what he said. Furthermore i accidently forgot my credit card in my suitcase which was at a place where i could not get it of course. I was dying with hunger but the stewardess refused to give me something to eat or let me pay later or do something to make me feel good."
Pros: "Very friendly crew!"
Pros: "Great pilot and flight attendents, clean plane"
Cons: "I like everything"

Pros: "From the staff that went above and beyond to get me the seats I wanted on an extremely crowded flight, to the efficient process of boarding those without overhead bags earlier, to the comfortable flight - my experience was excellent."
Pros: "Staff very warm."
Cons: "Food selection paltry. Vodka from Seattle? Hopefully you will take Virgins food selections and liquor. Alaska can use an overhaul. Also aisle too tight."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "We had a six hour layover in LAX and our luggage still didn't get transferred to our next flight and so our first 3 days in Ecuador was without luggage!"
Pros: "Pilot told us it would be 10 mins really took an hour to taxi and park plane."
Cons: "Pilot lying"

Cons: "First flight was delayed two hours and I missed the second. Overall flight postponed of one day and they didn’t pay any expenses I had"
Pros: "Captain ended up being a good pilot with a very smooth landing,"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed 2 hours because the crew was comprised of members from flights delayed by the snowstorm. Even though gate attendants knew they were on their way, attendants refused to let us board until the crew was all on board. Then we had to wait some more....... Also they were lax on pre-boarding announcements, not letting families with children on first. And waiting until each group was fully boarded before announcing the next. Plus the enunciation of various announcements was difficult to understand and/or way too fast. It wasn't funny."
Cons: "Late departure"
Cons: "More than 2 hours delayed. Bags took forever to come out. Not flying in jetblue anymore"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and terminal staff was rude about making changes"
Pros: "That I eventually arrived."

Cons: "First attempt to check im at kiosk failed. Was told to see an agent. Ignored that command made another attempt at kiosk and was able to get BP. The brag about their free wifi at every seat but it didn’t work. Can’t complain tho because seat back video screen had plenty of other entertainment."

Of course the delay was terrible all things out of jet blues control. young lady i the flight crew couldve been a bit more pleasant. and you guys ran out of tea, sad"
Pros: "Staff / pilot What an up beat crew . Thank you for bringing me home safe .."
Pros: "JetBlue didn’t let us go on standby unless we paid $75pp When boarding people of other groups (than one announced for boarding) were asked to wait back. And never made announced for group C. We listened and others had all crowded up near the boarding line"
Cons: "Charge for standby"
Cons: "Mechanical problems delayed the flight one hour."

Cons: "Crew wasnt having a happy day"
Pros: "The temperature on the plane was great."
Cons: "The TV’s were not steaming live TV, we were in turbulence the entire flight and only got served at the last hour.

Cons: "Security line was very long"
Pros: "On board WiFi was awesome"

We landed in Fort Lauderdale 5 hours later than the scheduled time. We got home at 5:00 AM. Unexeptable!!!!!!"
Cons: "Safe and quiet flight."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "I had been traveling for over 24 hours and my phone broke. I kindly asked if I could borrow a phone and was told no. My flight was delayed and I asked to be moved to the earlier one and they charged me when it was the second time a flight had been delayed by jet blue for me in 2 weeks. I missed my hotel check in and was charged 200 dollars by the hotel"
Pros: "The flight was smooth and comfortable, flight attendants nice and helpful. And the seats are more spacious than other airlines"
Cons: "The flight was over 2 hours delayed but they kept us informed throughout the wait via text and email"
Pros: "Crew always pretty good with Jet Blue. You generally know what you are going to get."
Cons: "One of the primary reasons we go Jet Blue is for the TV's and they rarely work consistently. Also... 1) their Wifi is very inconsistent and 2) when are they going to get current and put some outlets or USB ports for charging?"
Cons: "Great flight"
Pros: "Crew was helpful, friendly and offered great service."
Cons: "I felt everything was pretty much fine. I thought that some of the Captain's announcements were hard to hear, but it's just a minor issue."
Pros: "Seat was great, complimentary snacks and alcoholic beverage"
Pros: "Entertainment system great. Individual choices include recent movies. On board staff very nice"
Cons: "We had issues with baggage. Delta was supposed to transfer 4 bags to Disney for Magic Express transportation. Only 3 went. Disney tried hard to fix problem, and even gave us something to ameliorate the situation. Delta took hard line, wasn't helpful and gave nothing. It took 2 days to find bag."
Pros: "Service was outstanding"
Cons: "TV froze and was never fixed."
Pros: "The smootheness of the flight."
Cons: "The fact that the passenger behind me is was kicking the back of my seat. And it wasn't even a child!"
Pros: "Quick and on time. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Not many movie options."
Cons: "No communication between different parts of the airport; early arrival, over 2 hours getting through baggage claim; good luck rechecking your bag; almost missed flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover. Workers on the ground don't care, or either don't know what's next on the transit through the airport."
Cons: "It was late and i missed my next flight"
Pros: "Efficient hop to Boston"
Cons: "I was not aware, when I picked my seat, that we were ahead of the Emergency Exit. My seat was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "I love Delta. The crew members were very safe, courteous, and efficient."
Cons: "Female flight attendants were rude and acted like the passengers were a bother. Tried to move to an emergency row after the doors closed, which was empty and the flight attendant refused stating we had to pay extra. NOT HAPPY"
Cons: "Horrible wait if nearly 30 minutes after landing"
Pros: "The environment and efficiency."
Pros: "The entertainment is always great on delta and they have new snacks now!"
Cons: "Cabin service took a bit longer than normal and we were stuck on the tarmack for at least 30 mins waiting to take off. Not anyone’s fault, just annoying"
Pros: "Everything went wonderful. Excellent crew"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."
Cons: "The plane was delayed by more than 3 hours due to "weather problems" earlier in the day. Delta did not permit re-booking to flights that left JFK for Boston earlier, even tho there seats available, instead insisting that we had to wait for our assigned flight. Small snacks (regular Coke, no Diet) did not really compensate well."
Pros: "Entertainment, newer plane, great crew. and complimentary meal? fantastic."
Cons: "I checked in 12 hours in advance for both trips and was assigned a B seat toward the back of the plane for both, with no capability to select my seats in advance."
Pros: "Everything was pretty good like usual, except when we landed we sat on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for a gate as ours was occupied by a plane that was having mechanical issues. Not great."
Pros: "Delta is always running behind."
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: "left on time - landed early. Gate checked my luggage for me."
Pros: "Complimentary meal and entertainment, very good service from flight attendants."
Cons: "Seat 43B?! I checked in 12+ hours in advance."
Cons: "3.5 hour delay due to lack of co-pilot. No consessions for delay when asked at gate. Lack of leg room. Broken tv, I asked twice to be fix nothing was ever done."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Pros: "Get a day in NYC"
Cons: "Two daytime flights booked so can't get to Bangor until the 9:00 pm flight tonight. Aitline only coveted one night at the hotel. Had to buy a second night so we don't have to carry our bags around all day."
Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
Pros: "entertainment services"
Pros: "Trip and flight crew excellent!"
Cons: "I understand that they couldn't deliver luggage during lightening, but my luggage and clothes were soaked!"
Pros: "Fantastic SFO-based crew serving Delta One cabin. They are attentive, and constantly walk around the cabin to provide service."
Cons: "Delay at JFK (first, the inbound aircraft coming late, then 2.5 hrs taxing at JFK, finally landed in SFO but the gate was occupied)."
Pros: "Plane was very clean and flight attendants were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Delta's domestic terminal at JFK is far too crowded, even at 8AM."
Pros: "All went well with every aspect of the flight."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Cons: "Most everything was excellent, however my 2 year old daughter's in seat entertainment screen wasn't working. It was a full flight and there was no option to change seats. I brought it to the flight attendants attention however she wasn't able to reset it. A 7-hour flight from NY to Zurich travelling with small children without the movies was not as pleasant as it could have been."
Pros: "Enjoy able"
Pros: "The leg room was great, the blanket and pillow provided was great and the crew did not disturb me."
Pros: "The amount of movies to watch"
Cons: "Seating not enough room, couldn't use the overhead lights for 7 1/2 hour flight. Ridiculous."
Cons: "The quality of customer service and efficiency was lacking at the check in counter. Wrong information was given to many passengers as far as checking in baggage and being sent to several line ques for the agent to tell me in the end that I was told the information incorrectly since the beginning. I therefore was unable to board my flight on time, got switched to a new flight and the new flight was delayed for 3.5 hours."
Pros: "I was delayed coming from an international flight and was so thankful for the help from delta at the counter and at the gate. I did lose my bag but that was my fault in the confusion of jfk. I got my bag in 2 days."
Cons: "When i got my bag back the handle wouldn't go down fully. Baggage handlers must've mishandled it and bent something."
Pros: "Really liked the plan"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, kept us informed throughout, and were friendly. Landing was smooth."
Cons: "Bathroom ran out of tissues and toilet paper halfway through the flight. Alerted the crew, and they added tp. Bathrooms seem to have gotten even narrower, barely any room to move in there! Also, we had to sit on the tarmac after landing for 30 min due to gate traffic. A few minor inconveniences, but overall tolerable."
Cons: "One crew member was running late. So we could not start boarding until she got there. Which created a chain reaction of events making the flight late. She was not a pilot. So why couldn't we begin boarding while waiting on her?"
Pros: "Delta always seems to have the most legroom between the seats - Even more than our transatlantic flight! The crew is always friendly and helpful, and nearly all our flights on Delta were on time or early."
Pros: "From the Ground crew to the Flight crew, you can feel the genuine care and thoughtfulness of everyone! They even remember you, if you fly often enough, and let you know how much they appreciate your business."
Pros: "plane had individual movies for free with each seat!"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about this flight. Only benefit of the doubt is the 2 hour delay as a runway in SF had shut down."
Cons: "We had seats at first where there was what looked like bubble gum bits stuck on one of the food trays. The flight was clearly not cleaned although it landed 2+ hours before the departure. We had to ask for a wet tissue and clean it up. That was of no use too as it wouldn't scrub off. My wife was feeling under the weather and so we asked for a blanket. The blanket was hardly a blanket and more like a towel. We then luckily could switch seats as there were 2 vacant. But, the air conditioner was leaking water in the seat to our left. The crew was callous and just stuck the passenger with some napkins saying it does that. I don't fly Delta a lot and my experience in this trip isn't inspiring much confidence."
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process is always horrible. Folks crowd the gate before their class is called. It creates anxiety and edginess. Never a good way to start a trip. While it always goes relatively quickly I feel it should be more organized and folks made to follow a system. Cramming right up against the ticket counter doesn't do anyone any good."
Pros: "Me rompieron el equipaje"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable, and the cabin in First Class was clean"
Cons: "I’m a big guy so using the tray table to eat was very uncomfortable and almost didn’t work at all"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive and friendly."
Cons: "I would have like to leave on time."
Cons: "No entertainment system, tight seats"
Cons: "No complementary snacks. Flight delayed for several hours. Customer service personnel not helpful in changing flights"
Pros: "Modern aircraft."
Cons: "Leg room, especially for a 6’3 person in the middle seat."
Cons: "Holding back the departing passengers so those with connections could exit first"
Pros: "Calm no crowd organized and perfect"
Cons: "My transfer was supposed to be from JFK, but when I arrived a staff told me to take a taxi and go to LaGardia airport. Nobody apologized neither explained why I had to go there. Instead from leaving New York at 5.25 pm the flight was delayed to 8.30 pm. Horrible flight with angry employees"
Cons: "They left my bags behind and told me they weren’t even checked in Worst customer service ever"
Cons: "The seats were small and I’m 5’3"
Pros: "Why do I get asked 3x times if I am ready able to assist with a verbal yes. I get asked at baggage check in, again when I board by gate agent, and then again by flight crew. Is this FAA regulations to ask 3 Times?"
Cons: "Ask me 1 time"
Pros: "The econ plus/premium econ seats were pretty comfy! I wish I had used miles to book first class, as this plane had a dope 1st cabin."
Cons: "Well, pretty much everything but the actual seats. The service was...well, you can't really call it service. Gate staff lied about the status of the plane, updating the boarding time to 10 minutes and then announcing that the plane was still in the hangar. Passengers would have been much happier to hear the truth of a 2h delay so that we could get food/drink. Instead we had 2h worth of promises that the plane was leaving in 10 mins. No effort was made at being nice--no free snacks or whatever would be nice to make people feel cared for. But what's worse was the flight attendants. I don't even feel like getting into it--just suffice to say these are people who should not be working in the service industry. I saw them being rude to a number of people and it made an already bad experience (with the 2h delay) that much worse. It's not that hard to be polite to people. AA should do more to hire caring, kind staff who create happy vibes even through stressful times."
Pros: "Fast check in"
Cons: "Unfriendly airhostesses, I asked fir a blanket as it was freezing but refused to bring me one"
Pros: "The pilot and co-pilot took the time to answer my question about turbulence. They were very friendly. I appreciated that."
Cons: "There is insufficient legroom in coach, especially when the passenger in front of me reclines."
Pros: "We didn't crash"
Cons: "The crew met their requirements. I dont think you’ll survive they dont go beyond."
Pros: "Almost everything. Only the food was lacking. I like their new planes. The outlet at the seat in coach. The magazine options at the seat as well. I did not look at the entertainment so I will not rate that. The crew was professional."
Cons: "Just the food options. Ginger snaps was what was served for food and a beverage. I suppose this is what obtains on most airlines these days but can't I hope for something more like maybe a sandwich? AA has the opportunity to set themselves apart in this area."
Pros: "We barely made our connecting flight."
Cons: "Flight delayed nearly an hour due to crew not showing up on time. Crew blocked aisle as passengers were boarding. Crew did not assist people who needed to make connecting flights by keeping other passengers from blocking the aisle after landing.. Airline did not seem to care about all the chaos caused by being so late."
Pros: "Everything was crew, drinks and the flight was great!"
Pros: "I have had the most uncomfortable seat ever. It felt like there was a huge ball under my seat."
Pros: "Free upgrade to domestic first class was awesome."
Cons: "Food was meh."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "No wifi but there were old style TVs throughout the cabin. It was an old plane"
Pros: "I have been flying American Airlines for years and never had a big issue. The crew was better some times than others but I usually travel at night and try to get some sleep. Obviously, I like the newer planes and hope that the fleet will eventually be replaced entirely."
Pros: "The crew, the flights was always on time."
Cons: "Maybe change's pretzel and gives sandwish."
Cons: "Flying old dilapidated 767-300 on 10.5 hour overseas flight is not a good idea Crappy seats, no in-seat entertainment, non-working overhead lights on the first flight... AA in it's usual glory. Mediocre company at best."
Pros: "I slept through the flight"
Cons: "Checking in was ridiculous. Very unorganized the agents were rude I was over charged for my bags an to top it off the supervisor witnessed the whole debacle and asked what I would like her to do about it."
Pros: "found out upon boarding that my $97 ticket was for a business class seat. Awesome"
Cons: "It was a short flight so there was really no food or entertainment."
Cons: "We were delayed for 6 hours due to a maintenance issue. Horrible customer service"
Cons: "Delay of flight do to routing maintenance has cost me a overnight in Miami. sleep only 4 hrs that day and the lost of one logged. AA employees in MIA the worst ever."
Pros: "It didn't crash"
Cons: "3 hour delay in take off and landing, malfunctioning door not weather caused the delay Moved to other gate and plane with blasts of cold air on passengers Stood on plane after landing Stood on bus waiting to be driven to exit point in terminal Missed the train that I had ticket for, bought online, so I lost the money and lost the day planned around the train schedule (plane was supposed to arrive at 7:10 and it landed after 10:00. I moved as quickly as possible through all stages, with no checked bags, cash in hand, but I missed a 12:30 train and failed to meet the guide lined up to meet me"
Pros: "Nothing to like that much"
Cons: ".very uncomfortable seats. Old plane."
Pros: "Comfortable seating considering economy. Food decent."
Cons: "2 hour delay due to no captain available. Told us about it when we were supposed to be boarding."
Pros: "Everything except what I didn't like."
Cons: "Delayed departure"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Great service from the ground staff to the in flight crew."
Pros: "It started with a unclear check-in process, proceeded with a multi-hour delayed flight with several reasons given for each return back to gate. Ended with us getting off the plane 4 hours after we were originally due to take off, a further hour delay before they said we could board again but then midway through that boarding we were told the flight was cancelled and no hotels were available and we'd need to return to check-in area to find out next steps. All this with our exhausted 4-year olds. Ended with us leaving the airport at 3 am. I truly never wish to fly American Airlines again."
Cons: "Check-in, communication, the plane (I can't recall the last time we flew in a 757 plane (3 and 3 in each row) with no TVs for a transatlantic flight! Finally the multi delays ending with a cancelled flight with no alternate flight immediately offered to all."
Cons: "The movies were watched were old movies; they could be updated."
Pros: "The initial price. Difficult flight."
Cons: "I did not get what I paid for and check in took two hours to figure out. I bought tickets on Kayak through Justfly.com for a Finnair flight and added an American Airlines (affiliate) frequent flyer number.and reserved my seats early.as I usually do and everything was confirmed by Justfly.com. No problems, right? I did not receive a check in notification. I used the Finnair trip number on my email but it said there was no flight found. I could not initially get hold of Just fly.com. when I did, they said I had to check in through American Airlines. That didn't work initially either. After getting a new trip number I was able to check in but our seats were changed and it was a red eye. When trying to get seats I noticed there are very few seats left. The seats I had selected were now open and would coat another $120 plus. I couldn't even get those. We wound up with some exit seats which seemed fine until my wife couldn't recline her seat. It was uncomfortable for both of us because she had to use my legs to prop hers onto. Im still on vacation so I haven't contacted American for a refund yet."
Pros: "Can't much think of anything. Gave the crew a break with the 'ok' only because I'm pretty sure none of this is their fault. They still smiled their way through this s*** assignment."
Cons: "We were assigned a Boeing 767. The seats were barely comfortable, even though I paid $129 to get "up to 6" more legroom" and snagged a bulkhead seat. (Is it me or do you want to start a revolution when you are just on the other side of the curtain where those on the other side are being served champagne, have large tv screens and fully reclining sleeper beds?). The food mediocre/unremarkable but heh, it's an airplane , the crew ok but uniforms dated and drab. The real letdown was the entertainment system. Or I shoudld say lack thereof. I was psyched that the seat was designated as having a charger. Yeah, if I'm carrying my car charger with me! Yikes!!! So, strike one. Then, NO ON DEMAND service of any kind, since this plane is not equipped with wifi, which would have given us the ability to watch on an iPad or other device. Strike two. And THEN, when you think, no this can't get worse, there are a strong of three 2ND RATE movies shown back to back. No choice, no watch when you want, in other words, no ON DEMAND. Oh, and did I mention the really really REALLY old pull-out remote control with a credit card phone on the flip side? STRIKE THREE! This was a Finnair booking through Kayak, but on an American Airlines code share. The gate at JFK was changed no less than 4 times, the final time, one hour before departure, from Gate 14 to Gate 45. Good thing I had left myself plenty of extra time! The check-in process at Finnair counter no less than a nightmare. Stood in line for 30 minutes, then told we had to go to "Line 1" and use one of the kiosks to print our boarding passes (we checked in online but were not given phone-board passes) and check our bags. This area was nothing short of pandemonium with agents yelling at us to form straight lines. Many of the kiosks were not working not working and there were not enough agents to help the throngs."
Pros: "Finally taking off"
Cons: "Will probably never fly out of JFK again-4 hour delay, poor communication from airport staff, 4 Gate changes you name it. Absolutely painful"
Pros: "Seats were okay. Only one hour flight comfortable. Good for the money."
Cons: "Walking up and down to get on/off the plane (small plane)"
Pros: "The flight was delayed 5 hours. We were late for our tour in Ireland!"
Pros: "Best was nice plane, great seats, and efficient crew."
Cons: "Worst was plane left late, then delayed on tarmac for "passenger count". This made me late for connecting flight and made me lose luggage."
Pros: "The t was a nonstop"
Cons: "Old plane! No wifi, no ind TVs. Drinks are $8! Plus it was a code share with American so poorer service and no blueberry juice. I would not chose this flight again."
Pros: "We lost a full day with delays using american airlines /finair when flying to dublin. Their "free" sandwiches to hold us over is embarasssing. We then missed our plane because finair informes us after waiting online we needed to go to another terminal to check bags at american airline. That was not initially told to us and now we are spending over $1000 so we can fly tomorrow plus hotel room. It also affected a business trip to vegas which i needed to cancel. My experience was terrible with finair and american airlines with terrible customer support at the airport. Amazing how we need to pay another 1000 for terrible communication."
Cons: "Lack of communication from airlines Delays Forced to pay a return flight fee plus hotel fee due to finair inabilityty to communicate and direct customers to right terminal."
Pros: "The emergency exit row had decent legroom and I was comped my beer."
Cons: "Perhaps it was my own fault, but I kept getting errors trying to check in online at the Finnair website. I was there because up until I tried to check in at JFK, I was 100% sure I booked a Finnair flight, because that's what Kayak told me. I was pretty pissed off when I found out that SURPRISE I was really flying on American Airlines, pretty much the most boring airline on the planet. When I checked in, I was still unable to get a seat assignment, not until I got to the gate where I had to wait 20 minutes for an agent to show up and sort things out. They finally put me in an emergency exit row, in an extremely uncomfortable non-recline seat (I know, regulations). The flight was also an hour late taking off (I know, not AA's fault), which did not help the experience. Will be more careful next time booking on Kayak."
Pros: "We didn't crash, and seats were okay"
Cons: "This plane is really old"
Pros: "Entertainment was good but the system had to be rebooted two times as it was getting stuck."
Cons: "crew was more about relaxing themselves vs. worried about passengers. Wrong priorities! They ran out of food choice by the time they got to our seating area which was at half point of the plane!"
