Cons: "I believed that animals should not travel with people I had to switch seat with someone because I m extremely allergic to cats. So I had to seat in the back of plane to avoid a health problem.

Pros: "Crew were very nice, snacks and drinks were very nice, good inflight entertainment."

Cons: "Was told to get off plane after two hours with our luggage and then eventually got on plane and then waited at least a half hour to take off. On arrival at our destination we had to wait until a gate was available. We arrived almost four hours later. I had to cancel and rearrange my appointments. I don't even recall hearing I'm sorry for the inconvenience. Some kind of compensation should have been provided. Some kind of"
Pros: "All went smoothly"
Pros: "The crew and food was good"
Cons: "The over 2.5 hour delay, broken equipment"
Pros: "I enjoy flying jetblue, I am usually comfortable and i is a pleasant experience. The last two times I have flown, the flight has been delayed by at least an hour and a half and there has been something wrong with the sound to the movies. This flight my movie was staticky and had to jiggle my headphones for it to work although sometimes it still happened. My seat this last flight also was broken and I was unable to put my seat back which caused some back discomfort."
Cons: "I would choose jetblue again because of the other wonderful experiences I have had with you. The staff are usually very professional and courteous and the comfort is usually better than anyone else. Thanks."
Pros: "We didn’t crash"
Cons: "Woman wth a dog wouldn’t take it off her lap. Delayed for an hour dealing with it. On top of being delayed 90 minutes for no reason."
Cons: "Almost all JetBlue employees I encountered were rude - yes I know they were frustrated with flight delays because of system failure, but at least y’all are paid. The terminal was dirty, crowded, and everything was shutting down even though people we still looking for food, beverages, Etc (so passengers make sure you are fed / prepared if you’re flying late out of Newark). There was miscommunication from almost every step and even on the play, delays were not conveyed. I’ll definitely avoid booking this flight with the airline & airport moving forward."
Pros: "Flight attendant was very nice despite appearing a bit overworked and frazzled."
Cons: "We were over 30 min late taking off because the pilots were late from another flight and people wouldn't listen to crew instructions to sit down. Monitors wouldn't work for entertainment. That didn't really bother me, but it was an issue for the two people sitting in my row. We had paid $40 for even more, so I was surprised when the flight attendant wouldn't give my neighbor a complimentary pillow so he could rest since the monitor wouldn't work. Flight attendant said he would need to pay $5. I feel flight attendants should be given permission to change policy based on certain circumstances."
Cons: "I didn't like it at all, Jetbule should had find another airline to take me so I can arrive at around the same time , not just with the flights they offer but I should be able to get into another airline too"
Pros: "Plenty of legroom and I am 6 foot tall. Nonstop from Newark to Fort Myers Florida, on time."
Pros: "No wait time. Except for the flight delay."
Cons: "If my daughter wasn't there to help me with the checking of my bays and boarding pass. I wouldn't know what to do. Remember is not every body can use electronic"
Cons: "Flight was 2.5 hours late and then landed at the wrong terminal."
Pros: "The pilot kept us informed regularly. The flight attendant was very good."
Cons: "My right elbow kept turning off the passenger’s tv next to me and the passenger on my left turned mine off twice!"
Pros: "Seating was fine, flight attendants were very nice. It was a short flight and everyone worked to be efficient about boarding once the plane was ready for boarding."
Cons: "I wish the plane had come on time--the delay was inconvenient, although I understand sometimes the reason for delay can't be helped."
Pros: "The way in which they take and serve drinks and snacks"
Pros: "Due to weather we physically couldn't get to the airport on time. I am sooo glad you could get us on the next flight, and with seats together! NIIIICE!"
Pros: "Legroom and entertainment and cabin staff!!"
Pros: "What did I like? Well, I liked arriving at my destination, though getting there on Jet Blue was unpleasant."
Cons: "Stressful due to delays, disorganization, lack of communication, developing-world style of service."
Pros: "Crew was very personable and friendly- made the flight very enjoyable!"
Pros: "The sweet blues chips yummy"
Cons: "Tv was broke and it should be included"
Pros: "Service at the door to print out our baggage tix & boarding tic. Very efficient & helpful. Cordial staff at departing desk & in the air. Left on time & smooth landing."
Cons: "I had to use Ladies’ room soon after take off & they wouldn’t let me get up for 20 min. More. I would have gotten up at my own risk instead of waiting for no- seatbelt sign!!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful as usual. There was a fair amount of leg room and overall space."
Cons: "One thing that has always made JetBlue stand out has been the customer service. I get pretty motion sick on flights, especially on an empty stomach, so the snacks and meals at mealtimes have always made this my favorite airline. There was none of that this time around. It feels like JetBlue is letting itself turn into just another commercial airline - over priced flights and amenities for overrated service and a lack of care for the consumer. Not to mention we were late"
Pros: "Love the free wifi. Plenty of room even in a regular middle seat. Nice to have a lavatory in the front of the plane for all to use."
Pros: "So much delays. 3 hour delay should entitle us with satisfactional offers."
Cons: "I was exhausted due to 3 hour delay."
Pros: "The boarding was very quick and easy, the crew were very pleasant and helpful, and I felt safe the entire flight. We arrived 30 minutes early!"
Cons: "I wish there was more snack selection and a little more room in the sides (this I understand can’t be helped, but that is just my opinion). Other forms of entertainment, such as magazines or newspapers, even if outdated, would be a nice alternative for those who do not wish to purchase headphones."
Cons: "None of the TVs worked on the flight. The boarding crew in the terminal was rude and very short with everyone. i had to go up multiple times to ask about my seating assignment and was ignored and then waved away multiple times. And then as boarding began I was given a seat saying they "thought i was on standby" but i never was. i was given a seat in the last row with two other people who had infants on their laps so it was a very tight fit."
Pros: "gate staff were accomodating, flight landed on time."
Cons: "Crew were rude and intimidating to a family with kids, including calling my wife a liar in front of them! Unconscionable. I thought JetBlue advertises unlimited snacks, but my daughter was told 'you've had enough' when she went for seconds. Our TV sets didn't work. Our baby spilled some chips and as the flight attendant passed he looked at us and said loudly 'I wonder who made this awful mess'."
Pros: "the smooth landing+++ leg room updates on flight departure/delay. Wi-Fi clean terminal"
Cons: "walking distance to get a cab in new York jfk terminal"
Pros: "Nice flight, exited the plane quickly"
Cons: "I didn't like that because I was in Class D, I boarded the plane after many people and there was zero space for my carry on- which contains medical equipment, and I was forced to put it below. The overhead compartments are teeny tiny, and when other people shove all their bags in there, there's no room for other people's single carry ons."
Cons: "Entertainment was out of service."
Pros: "Flight from ny was great"
Cons: "We were delayed over 2 1/2 hrs from Montego Bay. I’m Upset at the fact that we were told it was a 20 minute delay then it became an hour delay on ground then it became another 45 minute delay in traffic then another hour delay in the sky. Disappointed because of this. Communication was horrible! N to think I just signed up for JetBlue credit card"
Pros: "Delayed 1.5 hrs, then sat on plane for two hours before being returned to the gate, re-boarded 45 mins later and sat on the plane another hour before finally taking off. We were supposed to leave at 10.40, we didn't leave till around 4."
Pros: "Me encantó la gentileza de enviar correos electrónicos para mantenerme informada."
Pros: "great staff . clean. current movies"
Pros: "Flight is what we have come to think of as okay because nothing hurts"
Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"
Pros: "Delta is the best--I sat in a comfy seat (middle seat at that) and watched 3 movies during my flight. Couldn't be better!"
Pros: "We spent 90 min in line to take off on the tarmac. Pilot kept us informed. Crew were very pleasant."
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."
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."
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: "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: "There were a lot of free movie options for a 6hour flight. The tv was new and had good definition. The food offered was quite substantial. The staff kept coming around with water and asking if there was anything else we needed. They gave free blankets. The lavatories were a little larger and more well lit than other airlines."
Cons: "The seats did not recline for anyone on the plane."
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?"
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
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: "The courtesy of the staff and the seats in the "delta comfort" section."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. i'm not sure if there is a way but there should be a way to only serve only those who are requesting service."
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: "Pretty much nothing related to the entertainment system... It is nice that you can play movies for free over WiFi on your phone or tablet (since the in-seat system simply didn't work...), but, bizarrely, the WiFi movie selection was different from (and substantially smaller than) the seat movie selection. What's that about? And the WiFi movie scheme is way more painful than it needs to be, requiring you "check out" movies using your web browser, then switch to a separate app to actually watch the movies. Clearly the product of a company mindset whose ONLY concern is "can we check some box", with absolutely no interest in "how can we delight our customers?""
Cons: "So we get the same entertainment system all these flights use: some ghastly totally non-optimized Linux setup that was rebooted three times during the flight, took 20 minutes for each reboot, and never worked correctly after any of the reboots. (The only movie my system would ever play was the very first one, and none of the on-screen controls worked. The seat next door could choose multiple movies, but each movie froze after 40 minutes). The amazing thing is: why don't they just install a damn iPad mini or Android equivalent in the back of each seat? Would be lighter than what they have today and would work FAR better. You'd need some co-ordinating/provisioning software to provide for OTA announcements and movie updates, but basically it's not that hard... At the very least, hire a Linux-head to optimize your startup scripts! It's just sad to see this 20 minute startup process (all dumped on the screen) with its constant repetition of time-wasting startup steps that just generate errors on this plane's particular hardware setup..."
Pros: "The crew was nice. It was a pretty smooth flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work. Very long flight to not have entertainment. No plugs for personal devices. It looked like an older plane."
Pros: "The crew were up and down making sure everyone was comfortable and the flight was very smooth."
Cons: "When a flight is full they shld pick out those other hand luggages and tag them to be placed along with the other suitcases.So to expedite smoother boarding and not standing in line waiting to go for your seat when someone else looking for head room to place there stuff."
Pros: "Lots of leg room despite being at the very last row. The seats even could recline a fair amount. Hot breakfast, with good food."
Cons: "Not the newest equipment. The plane was delayed. Everyone was friendly so it didn't matter too much."
Pros: "Comfortable flight, good food"
Cons: "Little or no entertainment"
Pros: "It was an good trip"
Pros: "Packed plane with few comforts. No in-seat entertainment. Food was a joke. Next time i will fly Jet Blue as the price was very comparable,"
Pros: "There was nothing to like but the staff when I got on the plane"
Cons: "First time I ever experienced this when my passport got taking and your staff going to tell mi that's on mi when it's on video and your staff going to tell mi that the money I paid for my ticket it's just my lost and I can go on the play but they finally listen and found the man who stole or took my passport"
Cons: "The plane was very old fashioned with outdated seats."
Cons: "Airplane's overall conditions were mediocre. Toilets were extremely dirty. Seats were quite uncomfortable. Even the first class section wasn't worth the upgrade. Was unable to book vegetarian option for food. Can't imagine why they assume everyone eats chicken. I'd think twice before flying Caribbean."
Cons: "I don't like the fact that the fares are none transferable to family members. I like the fact that I can travel very early in the morning. I'm thinking of changing companies,it is hard to come up with so much money, and reasons a raises and you can't make the trip you should allow to transfer it to your family members at least.smh"
Pros: "I liked that the crew was very helpful and courteous during our time of sickness."
Cons: "The plane was hot and humid, food poisoned my sister."
Pros: "The staff was very good"
Cons: "Old aircraft"
Pros: "Smooth on time flight. Pilots gave regular updates."

Pros: "Pilot did an excellent job at departing and landing"
Cons: "Nothing at the top of my head"
Cons: "The flight was late, which is usually the case with Caribbean Airlines"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly, really cannot complain"
Pros: "The overall service"
Cons: "The boarding process took too long. After pre-boarding they called for persons seated from row 15 and higher, that was the majority of persons and so we ended up being in line for quite a few minutes."
Pros: "Crew extremely courteous and friendly entertainment"
Cons: "Entertainment was old style"
Pros: "The team were courteous and have smiles all the way."
Cons: "The discomfort of the seating arrangement."
Pros: "I liked the food and the crew were lovely"

Pros: "The service and arrangements were satisfactory. Apart from circumstances that were beyond their control, the experience was good."
Pros: "the food"
Cons: "The food/breakfast was poor. Two unaccompanied minors in front of me was loud and always fighting. Seats didnt go back no foot rest and the ear buds didnt fit ear."
Pros: "The flight home. First time flying with a female pilot. Comfortable."
Pros: "No problem, smooth sailing all the way to and fro,"
Cons: "A little more leg room would do!"
Pros: "Food was OK and price was reasonable"
Cons: "Personnel are check in was so abrupt and unprofessional and spent most of his time chatting with other staff. They were so unhelpful and unpleasant. I was not even greeted upon arriving at the counter first word out of his mouth was passport that's it. We had a long delay and crew didn't even offer us drinks in first class until we were almost ready to take off."
Pros: "Quick check ins..when you arrive early to the airport."

Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "THE FLIGHT WAS on time."
Cons: "The website was under construction so I could not check in on line..Got to Piarco and the counter people tell me my ticket was used...I said how can it be used I am standing in front of you....I can only say what I see here maam....was her response..I had to wait from 8.25 pm to 955 pm while she consulted with The Supervisor who walked back and forth doing gods knows what...at 1000 pm I went back to the desk and insisted to speak with some one else....at this time the response was .....IT WAS THE COMPUTER THAT HAD A GLITCH.....NOT EVEN WE ARE SORRY..."
Pros: "I really liked the fact that they were on time. No issues with checking in, boarding, in flight and landing...thank God."

Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "The on time boarding and departure."
Cons: "How tight the seating and space are."
Cons: "Upon arriving at the airport, the lines were so crazy that luckily we checked in online which allowed us to go to a separate line. My sister and I decided to upgrade to first class and it was downhill afterwards. I understand that their was severe turbulance and Thank God for the crew and getting us out. The problem was there they ran out of food for first class and no wine was offered. Nothing that would be considered as first class. My sister had to ask for water. No amends were made. DId not enjoy at all."
Pros: "The flight crew and flight was quite good."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed for a long while and I was not compensated"

Pros: "The crew was excellent, I am a vegetarian and did not order a vegetarian meal but the staff made it so very easy for me."
Cons: "I was trying to do a web check in and while it seems possible I was sent in circles and was still not able to check in online. I was very frustrated with their online process, but then I consoled myself because I am very aware of the unconscious attitude of Trinidad services."
Cons: "The fact that there was a huge scramble with reservations....My flight was 2 pm, however, passengers who were present for the 4pm flight was allowed to board ahead of folks who were there for the 2pm flight."
Pros: "I miss my flight and I had to buy another ticket to get home,where I was it was so difficult to get through to customer service.Why couldn"t I pay a fee instead of taking all my hard earn money and don't home.my niece had to buy me a one way on another airline so I could get home.That was terrible,even if I use poor to describe the treating that is an understatement.i will not ride that airline again,and I am going to write you up all over the media.Neville."

Pros: "From JFK to London, staff was friendly."
Cons: "From JFK to London, a large number of passengers were not wearing masks properly and the crew did not take action other than a reminder early on. From London to Edinburough, the crew was somewhat rude."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Pros: "We got to London on time"
Cons: "Is an old plane with a old hard product needs to be retired or retrofitted"
Cons: "The plane was old and literally falling apart. Tray tables were disconnecting. Worst part: The flight was delayed for some baggage mixup. Then they did nothing proactively to help passengers with tight connections that were only tight bc the flight was so late."
Pros: "The flight crew were excellent"
Cons: "The seat didn’t recline. So when the passenger in front of me pushed her chair down, i had little to no space to put my food Boarding was not properly managed. The gate agebts did npt ask to check travel documents before boarding therefore delaying the flow of boarding traffic"
Cons: "2 Hours delay I lost my connection it took like 10 more hours to get to my destination I finally got to my destination my luggage was misiing today is Tuesday July 24th and I’m still waiting no luggage and dress with the same clothes since Sunday"
Pros: "The entertainment this time was working. Always a bonus. Loos were kept clean."
Cons: "The younger staff are moody and sullen. If you don't like long hall flights change your job. BA your seats are SO old it's like sitting on a park bench for hours. I know we are in the lowest paid seats but it really isn't acceptable."
Cons: "The plane was dirty"
Cons: "Probably the early morning flight sent the crew into a busier schedule. It was somehow noisier with all the going-ons for the flight."
Cons: "Very old entertainment system."
Pros: "The attention of the flight attendents. And tht We were on time."
Cons: "I am 6.4 and don’t especially find bulk head seats very comfortable."
Cons: "air condition from above and from everywhere, it was too cold for me."
Cons: "Unable to book a seat in advance"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic."
Pros: "We made it safely"
Cons: "The flight was delayed The seats were very uncomfortable in priority section. The entertainment was not working for a good 2 hours, untill the engineer reset the system. No USB or outlet ports for charging the devices. Excuse me, but it is 2017."
Cons: "We started out over 1 hour late. When we arrived in Heathrow we weren't able to take the aircraft to the gate, instead we had to wait for over 30 min for the bus to take us to the terminal which made me miss my connecting flight by minutes. Very frustrating"
Pros: "Was happy that there was an empty seat in my row which allowed for a little more space and comfort. Food was filling and pretty tasty with free wine & spirits. Staff was friendly."
Pros: "It was on time and transfer was easy"
Pros: "A lot of space for legs"
Cons: "Purchase through viyama, an Iberia flight that was a code share with British airways and American Airlines. Iberia is terrible with getting its passengers online check-in on their code share partners. Was unable to check-in, got stuck in middle seat. Return seems to be the same situation with American Airlines."
Pros: "Chair room"
Cons: "No free food"
Pros: "Nothing much"
Cons: "Flight delayed - wish the give us updates periodically Warm, aircon not strong for a hot day Young crew is a guy who does not seem to be a customer service oriented person"
Cons: "It would've been so amazing to have wifi on a flight like that."
Cons: "Apathetic crew and service desk - missed flight with no automatic rebooking - I had to wait for two hours on arrival, then take a bus to a new airport and wait another 6 hours to get on a new flight. No upgrade, no compensation"
Cons: "Was given the wrong flight information. The email I received the day of the flight was incorrect and now I have no way of getting to Bergen until tomorrow. I am forced to spend the night in London. This is inexcusable."
Pros: "I loved the hot towel svc, the food and beverage svc. Flight attendants very attentive."
Pros: "Good economy flight from Heathrow to Madrid. Would recommend!"
Pros: "Entertainment was excellent. Free food and drinks, including alcohol was great. Flight crew went out of their way for all customers."
Cons: "Ran out of Chicken before they go to me.. felt the knees of the guy behind me the entire 7.5 hour flight, very annoying."
Cons: "Flight delayed 1 hr resulting in my missing the connecting flight and an extra 12 hr wait at the airport, not a happy situation!"
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "The EMB140/145 is just a bit too confining for me... I don't normally suffer claustrophobia on flights, but I seriously almost stepped off the plane immediately after stepping on, given the low ceiling, and confining nature of the plane. If it had been a full flight, I'm not sure I would have made it without a full blown panic attack of claustrophobia."
Pros: "Early arrival!"
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "I was not able to select my seat until 24 hours before the flight without paying, which I think is ridiculous. Once I checked in 24 hours before, I was still not able to select my seat. The problem was related to me booking through a partner airline. The partner (American Airlines) couldn't help me because they couldn't access the BA seats. And BA couldn't help me on the phone to select my seat for some other reason (I can't remember). I had to wait until I got to JFK a few hours before the flight, by which time all the seats were filled and I was stuck in a middle seat. Basically, I think there needs to be better communication or coordination between BA and their partner airlines to help customers before the flight, and also it is absurd to charge $35 to choose their seat."
Pros: "Easy to upgrade at gate, though I had to ask twice."
Cons: "- horrific food. not even consistent w economy food on gulf airlines. - drab interiors - old aircraft - tiny business class seats - malfunctioning / sticky controls - extremely overpriced."
Cons: "Jfk massive queue at checkin/drop off"
Cons: "Late by 2 hrs and missing connecting flight to Berlin. Getting a new flight and ticket took an hour at the BA service desk."
Pros: "Dinner was nice, flight was not overbooked."
Cons: "Left two hours late so I missed my connection. Huge headache. But BA staff was very friendly about rebooking me."
Cons: "Everything about this flight was miserable. AVOID BRITISH AIRWAYS AT ALL COSTS!"
Pros: "I liked the on flight meal, and the staff was incredibly professional."
Cons: "That I had no space to check my bag by the time I boarded, and barely any leg room for my seat. That and incredible turbulence which made sleep near impossible."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly."
Cons: "I would have preferred something more to eat, and to have my own entertainment unit."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, lovely staff, nice food, legroom and overall comfort. Flight not fully booked so we had a spare seat between us. Great entertainment."
Cons: "There was one air steward who kind of seemed to be constantly coming on straight after the pilot with very long, rambly comments in a very loud voice - I'd say he spoke for over 20 minutes total and of course he kept interrupting the entertainment! It wasn't safety stuff, it was general announcements. I wonder is it possible to just post a message on the screens that there's currently an announcement about e.g. shopping and then passengers could choose to stop and listen if they wanted? It felt very intrusive and stressful when it happened three or four times in a row, as it did several times."
Cons: "I booked a british airways flight and found myself boarding a partner company plane of American Airline with not personal screens, with a very chaotic boarding and had a 40 minute delay."
Pros: "The special meal was horrible"
Cons: "Old plane. for International flight, not power outlets, no screens. Plane felt dirty."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accomodating given the delays and the change of planes"
Cons: "The plane was delayed an hour and a half. They had to change the gate twice. The worst part was the plane. The original plane had a problem and they replaced it with a tiny everyday commercial jet for a 7 hour flight. It was extremely uncomfortable and I felt like I got a bit robbed because of how expensive the flight was."
Pros: "Newer plane."
Cons: "Had to pay for most things."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled due to air traffic"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "It was a mess checking in"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 5 hours last minute, making my layover 17 hours long. The delay caused my car rental place to give away my reservation so I had to wait an additional 2.5 hours to get a rental car. The primary reason for my travel was a wedding and although I made the actual wedding, I missed most of the pre-wedding activities that I had rsvped for. The seats were really uncomfortable, particularly the lack of low back support. I was very sore after the flight and was unable to sleep despite having been awake for over 24 hours prior to the flight. We were finally given meal tickets but was unable to use as everything closed at 10pm."
Pros: "Overall easy navigation."
Cons: "More signs for terminal to terminal navigation."
Cons: "We had too little time to switch flights. We were stressed and had to run a lot in order to make it to required connecting flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but it's not even delay, but the terrible incompetent unprofessional way this was handled."
Pros: "Boarded online. Upgraded to a Comfort seat in and exit row. So wasn't cramped but the entertainment/movie icon happened to be missing from my monitor only. So 5 and a 1/2 flight with nothing to watch. The food tray was also pretty filthy. Otherwise a solid trip. Nice, accomadating crew and with a female pilot! Loved that!"
Pros: "American airlines managed to get me to my destination."
Cons: "It was an awful ride. The food was horrendous. The plane was ancient. No outlets, no personal TVs. The plane looks like it was from the 1990s."
Pros: "The crew and captain were lovely and communicative."
Cons: "Our plane was very old and there were engine problems that kept us grounded for hours at JFK. I was terrified the entire time we were in the air that something might go wrong. Additionally, the air conditioner worked very poorly."
Cons: "Terrible plane. Old. No tv. No charge points"
Pros: "Departed and arrived on time. Friendly, efficient crew."
Cons: "Seats and aisles very tight."
Cons: "Take off was delayed for nearly an hour and the flight re-routed because of weather. We had scheduled plenty of time to make our connecting flight but we weren't updated on how much later we would be. This caused a lot of worry and stress not knowing when we would land or where our connecting gate would be. Fortunately the gates were next to one another and it all worked out. There were supposed to be usb charging connectors under the seat but I felt around for nearly 30 minutes and couldn't find them. Nobody could."
Pros: "- Got to the destination early."
Cons: "- time it took to get off the plane. - time it took for baggage to come out. - being forced to check in my carry on bag that had fragile items."
Pros: "The boarding was quick"
Cons: "I am surprised that an 8 hr international flight, had no WIfi.. I had to continually ask and check the time with Crew members. This needs to change when the average seat is $800-900 and the flight holds 35 seats. AA is raking in WAY to much money to be this cheap. No WiFi and having to look up to the middle isle to watch a child's movie on repeat " Guardians of the Galaxy." My neck and back were in extreme discomfort from the 8 hr flight back to NYC. If AA had headrest monitors and WiFi this could be avoided. Its 2017 stop being cheap!"
Cons: "I didn't get home til 1am bc of this flight delay. A lot of the passengers were on the final leg of overseas travel, so we had a really hard time with the delays. Boarding was inefficient. Cree counted us like 6 times. Why is that necessary? Plane was old and uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was professional and very accommodating."
Cons: "Cramped quarters."
Cons: "Seats were too small which made it hard to get comfortable."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The smell of the bathroom"
Pros: "Nice crew clean airplane"
Cons: "Initial flight was cancelled after 2 hours delay. My next flight was scheduled the earliest possible by AA which was 24 hours later. No transportation,hotel or miles compensation for this. I had work and responsabilities the next day. TThe scheduled trip was supposed to take off at 7:45. Boarding started late and was very slow. My bag fit the meassurements and still was forced to check it (which I did not want to do as I did not want to be waiting an hour for my bag at my arrival as I had work early the next day. In addition there was airplaine traffic as it was "rush hour" instead of flying at 7:45 we departed almost at 9pm!!!! Have to pay for food Quality of tv monitors very poor And in an uncomfortable position No movie options No wifi although stated the aircraft has Non functioning electrical plug"
Pros: "The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I was able to change my seat to sit with my husband because there were empty seats."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that children sitting behind us weren't told to stop kicking the chair. They also spoke loudly when it was quiet and thus woke me up from my sleep. We were delayed leaving due to unforeseen circumstances, but our arrival time was only 15 minutes later. There was a lot of turbulence during this flight."
Pros: "All of the flight attendants on American Airlines were very helpful and professional."
Cons: "The American crew made a long flight comfortable and bearable"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The planes are old. Needless to say there is no Wi-Fi, and the only entertainment on a 7.5 hour flight was a tiny tv in the center of aisle. 1987 tech in 2017. Our plane was delayed for 8 hours due to a broken hydrolics system, and no compensation for additional expenses due to equipment failure was offered."
Pros: "I like américain airline"
Cons: "I don't like the transfer between the aéroport it take long time plus I pay the ticket for the bus when I ask British crew they sad is free. And I arive to my second fly in last minute.clise to miss the flight"
Cons: "The check in process at JFK was a disaster. The kiosk check in machines were constantly malfunctioning, where to line up was unclear, and staff acted frustrated. After several failed attempts with the kiosks you have to wait in line to check in at the counter anyways. It would have saved almost an hour of my time to just go straight to the counter-- had I been allowed to. I wanted to check a bag which contained some fragile items. Several bottles of wine which I wrapped in bubble wrap and cushioned with my packed clothes. I requested a "Fragile" sticker to be put on my bag. I was told "We don't do that here". So I asked if they handle ALL bags with extreme care and I was laughed at and told to go on my way. When I got my bag at my destination-- the outside of my leather suitcase was sliced to the lining. There were scuff marks and torn leather. My wine had been completely shattered. Not just a crack in the bottle, but flattened completely. My clothes were stained, my bag ruined. I don't know if putting a fragile sticker on would have prevented this, but I don't understand why they just "don't do that". We are trusting our property to the airline when we check bags. I will never trust American Airlines ever again. They don't want to know if I have anything fragile, and they don't care when I tell them."
Cons: "Never made it to San Juan to catch my cruise. To top things off I was a ship for two days without my luggage and underwears. Never again!!! Thank you JetBlue!!!"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive crew. On time."
Cons: "Upgraded seat to be more comfortable. Very, very cold. Uncomfortable cold. Apparently it was an old plane and adjustments to temperature were difficult. No individual tv screens. At one point the steward lost control of drink cart and crashed into my personal headphones which he broke."
Pros: "Smooth ride and friendly staff"
Cons: "We were a little delayed"
Pros: "Friendly crew and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Older plane without individual entertainment choice. No food other than a single bag of pretzels offered."
Pros: "Excellent friendly crew, was able to get rest on an overnight flight with my wife, good selection of movies."
Cons: "It really wasn't "On-Time", but you couldn't tell that from the monitors. (I'm sure you like to keep your statistics "clean", but they shouldn't be dishonest.) A TSA? agent had us initially wait in a long incorrect line after we picked up our passport scanner sheets even though we told her we had a tight connection. Afterwards, she moved us along with a few others. That line could have swamped us!"
Cons: "4 hours delay and a plane with no tv or any kind of entertainment."
Cons: "Your partner vayama doesn't provide the terminal or airline. Went to Iberia/ terminal 7 just to realize it was AA/terminal 8."
Pros: "The view"
Cons: "3 hour delay - no compensation. Very old plane - no televisions, communal in-flight entertainment. Uncomfortable seats, dirty tables, loose arm rests. Food was outdated and terrible."
Pros: "Early departure and arrival, mostly comfortable flight, satisfying food, helpful crew"
Cons: "I did not have the option to reserve an aisle seat in advance, and I was stuck with a middle seat."
Cons: "The flight to NY took too long and I missed the connecting flight to DC. There was no one to help speed up the process through security and customs so I could make my flight instead, I was just rebooked for a flight 4 hours later. I have to drive to Richmond, VA tonight to make work tommorrow. I hate this neglect towards time."
Pros: "Great staff. Decent food. Great entertainment selection"

Cons: "My flight was changed to a different airline owned by Alaska. The new airline did not have my reservation information. If was a bit of a headache when checking in."
Pros: "Customer service excellence The flight attendants were very attentive"
Pros: "When I arrived at the airport to see the scheduled 9:30a departure was pushed back to 1pm, the gate crew did a good job of keeping us updated and they even provided lunch! The plane was undergoing maintenance but they found another plane and did not have to cancel the flight, and ultimately got us to our destination safely. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours so my half day of travel became a full day, half of which was mostly wasted at the airport. Would rather have been with my family than sitting at the airport."
Cons: "My family and I make I JFK -LAX reservation 4 months ago. We came to LAX three hours before our flight to make sure we get good seats. At the checking kiosk we did not have the option to pick seats , there was a message on the boarding pass that said to go see boarding agent. So we did, appreantly they over booked the trip and they were looking for volunteers to give up their seats!! Why did we have to be on stand by if our booking was confirmed 4 months ago!! They made us wait until the gate was closed and then they found us seats . This trip caused us mental anguish I will never fly American Airlines again"
Pros: "Never made this flight they rerouted."
Pros: "Reserved seating at time of boiling so all 5 of us sitting together."
Cons: "When we got our boarding passes we were all sitting in different places. I cannot understand how you sit a 3 and 4 year old away from their parents. Shocking oversight."
Pros: "Comfort. We had a bulk head seat. Newer plane"
Cons: "No food offered . Not even for purchase."
Cons: "The stewardesses repeatedly rammed their cart into my seat. They were so rude. it was appalling. I will never fly american airlines again"

Cons: "Delayed almost 3 hours."
Pros: "Flight was on time and service was good"
Cons: "Airline refused to honor ticket purchased through vayama. Kayak. American seems to be in some kind of work slowdown and they tried to make as many people as possible miss their flights. It was awful. I will never fly american again. Awful."
Cons: "The crew i ask for a coffee with half and half and he tell me that is not a starbucks horrible fligth departure delayed"
Cons: "The cabin crew were quite unpleasant. Seats are terribly crowded and uncomfortable"
