Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Crew. Alcohol and water bottles. Food. Entertainment. Comfort"
Pros: "Great entertainment."
Cons: "Turbulence was high so good/drink service was less than normal. No fault of delta or their crew but the JFK airport was awful, especially through customs. No help from the employees and easy to get lost."
Cons: "They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more. Our next flight left without us while we were waiting for a gate to open so we could get off the plane. There were no more flights so we had to fly to an alternate city and rent a car to get home."
Cons: "An officious crew who said they had a 'seat belt detector' to tell if people's seatbelts were fastened. A late flight... with lies about the reason for the delay."
Cons: "Issues with connecting flights so had to sit in different place, seat was broken"

Pros: "I've always wanted to go to all five Manhattan boroughs in one day. Thanks to Delta, that happened."
Cons: "The plane broke down as we were about to take off. Delta rebooked everyone on to new flights because it was pretty obvious that plane was not going to be fixed in time. The crew did their best given the situation. The situation was absolute bs though - we had to take a cab to JFK for our new flight and do the whole security thing again and all that annoying stuff. Thanks for wasting 8 hours of my life, Delta."

Pros: "The boarding didn’t take long at all. The staff and crew were very pleasant and polite. Everything was done in a timely manner."

Cons: "No check in to Minsk from Paris"
Pros: "I didn't get a chance to get the gentleman's name at the gate, but he was able to get me on the earlier flight (since I had NO luggage and only 1 carry on that fit under my seat) and didn't charge me the stupid fee for filling a seat that was empty when I was giving up a seat on a later flight that would accommodate those who missed this earlier flight. Nice to see kindness in an industry that seizes fees on every opportunity."

Plane from Newark was delayed, we missed our connection, our luggage was misplaced, then they didn’t have another flight until the next day, and they sent us to a hotel that didn’t have any rooms available."
Cons: "What couldn’t have? Thanks Aer Lingus."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Food was ok."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable."
Pros: "Overall everything went better than expected. Flew Aer Lingus from East Coast through Dublin to Rome. Making the connection in Dublin was the easiest connection I’ve ever made and I fly multiple times every month. I would fly Aer Lingus to Europe again for sure."
Cons: "We did not get to select the seats. I did get an extremely low priced fare so I was prepared. The seats were in the very back of the plane from Dublin to Rome even though there were many seats open throughout the plane. I couldn’t figure out how to purchase upgrades using the app."
Cons: "No middle seat"
Pros: "From check in to security to boarding everything was smooth with no waiting. Thanks for a great flight."

Pros: "Staff on board were friendly"
Cons: "7 hour delay with no effort to facilitate passengers"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "Traveling for important business trip. Flight got canceled for “operational issues” and I Never received a notification from the airline or booking agency. I was told I couldn’t get a flight until 24-48 hours later. There were flights available through other airlines, so I asked if they could get me on one of those flights. I then sat on hold for 45 mins to be told that the airline wasn’t responding and the only thing they could do is refund me. I ended up purchasing a new round trip airfare 4 hours before departure which cost me $1000 more than what I paid for my original flights. I was experiencing a lot of anxiety and stress during this period again with no help from the agents. I expect someone to get back to me regarding this and offer some options on how to make this situation right."
Cons: "My flight from the US to Dublin was delayed by 3.5 hours because the original inbound plane broke down and they sent a smaller replacement. Then they could not locate a crew."
Pros: "The crew was very helpful and has provided lots of water now and then, wich was really relieving on the long distance. The seats were quite comfortable, the food quite all right."
Cons: "The flight was delayed wich caused a lot of stress bevor, while and after it, 'cause of the connection flight, that we were afraid to miss. We've got the connection at the end, but the luggage didn't come with us, so a luggage investigation was needed. A lot of paperwork and stress, hopefully I'll at least get it back soon. Entertainment wasn't available for several hours, it was an error in the system or something. Some of the seats have had it, others have had not. It took them hours to fix it."
Pros: "Excellent price and great service"
Cons: "Not a lot of legroom"
Cons: "We tried to get a checked bag when checking it online but the site kept shutting down. When we got to the airport they told us it was $100 for each of our checked bags. They would not let us back away from the counter and check in online, even though it was only $45 online. The man who helped us was fine but his boss was rude and totally unhelpful. We will not fly Aer Lingus again if possible, which is sad because we are Irish and like the rest of the experience usually."
Pros: "The crew was very pleasant. The food was actually good! The flight was exactly on time! And they didn’t loose my luggage! It was perfect"
Pros: "I got from point a to point b just fine"
Cons: "It was very cold on the flight, the boarding process could be more organized, nothing complementary."
Pros: "Crew was courteous and efficient."
Cons: "Boarding was comical. This was the one place in the airport where there is no attempt to establish a queue area. I don't get it. Plane audio for pilot and crew announcements was poor. Nobody could hear what was being announced. Entertainment audio was very poor - which on a long flight can make a big difference. Even tried my own earbuds and it did not help."
Pros: "It landed early"
Cons: "After dinner, seat belt sign was on for the rest of flight. They didn't want anyone to use the bathroom...for over 4 hours. There was really no turbulence. Basically it seemed to be a reason to not provide service and trap people in their seats. You also had to pay for alcohol. Worst international flight I ever had in terms of customer service"
Pros: "we left 30 minutes early!!! and the crew were wonderful...very helpful and friendly"
Pros: "I enjoyed the crew you could tell they enjoyed working together the moved like a family..a unit almost."
Cons: "Boarding wasn't that great Sometimes I wish they would start from the back so people aren't getting hit while passing in the aisles."
Pros: "The Crew was lovely on the Transatlantic flight. The Dublin-HH crew was polite, one older lady was warm. Of course I would have like free wine, but I imagine many passengers might abuse the offer..."
Cons: "Narrow seats, not spacy feet place (fortunately a nice gentleman in the middle of us, 2 people, found a seat with more space - he was a very long and not too skinny man. Only 3 toilets for both isles of passengers on a TRANSATLANTIC flight."
Pros: "In flight service was good."
Cons: "Check in desk is always packed."
Cons: "More room for passengers in economy class. It is becoming utterly unpleasant. I would like not to be forced to check-in the carry-on when the plane is full. Make more room, sell less, or don't tell me I have right too a carry-on."
Cons: "I was absolutely appalled by the service, I was in the rear of the plane both flights and by the time the food had got to me there was no choice of meals . The flight attendants just threw it down in front of me . I found the staff rude and I could hear them making fun of passengers. Also the tables were insteady so you had to put something under it so it was level. Headphones hurt your ears. And the fact that when I booked my flights they did not mention that the flight from Dublin to Newark was a domestic flight so no free alcohol. I was very disappointed in this flight to and from"
Pros: "The flight crew arranged for assistance at the arriving airport."
Cons: "The staff at EWR took the wheelchair that I was in and told me that someone would be along with another one. One never arrived. I went to the desk when boarding began. I requested a wheelchair and I was told that I could walk down the ramp without assistance by one of the boarding staff. I was able to but with great pain and much energy. If it had not been for the crew of the flight I probably would never fly on Aer Lingus again."
Cons: "The delay"
Pros: "Had a very good flight from Dublin to Boston. The crew was great and very accommodating. Loved the movie selection. The food and beverages were wonderful to have on the long flight in the intervals they were handed out. Had multiple flights with Aer Lingus on our trip and was delighted with all of the flights. We will definitely be flying on Aer Lingus again!"
Pros: "The shepherds pie was excellent !"
Cons: "The seat cushion was worn out and lumpy"
Cons: "Seats very uncomfortable with very little padding. I'm glad I went to seat guru.com prior to my flight so I could bring a seat cushion!"
Pros: "Flight and service was fine - food was probably better than average in coach."
Cons: "I have come to expect charging outlet for devices - this aircraft had none. Entertainment consisted of a few older movies - no newer releases."
Cons: "First of all, they were not able to locate my reservations even after I showed them the e ticket. I had to be on call with Etihad for 1 hour to figure out my reservation. I had a small 7-year-old son with me and we were at the airport from one day. Since my other flight got cancelled I ended up boarding taking Etihad. I was first in the line at the check-in counter and ended up boarding at the end with all the hassle. I requested the vegetarian food twice and confirmed it while the reservation, but still didn't get the food. My son and myself were hungry for few hours. The crew was not very supportive to accommodate any food."
Pros: "Everything was good overall."
Cons: "Seats got a little uncomfortable after a while."
Cons: "Did not likevthe fact that beer and wine was not included on a trans Atlantic flight."
Pros: "Got Shuffled off by British Airways onto them the seats were good and the plane was new model"

Cons: "The food was terrible, could not consume."
Cons: "Smell the smoke from outside while boarding or landing. Pay for wine Luggage allowance, NO PERSONAL bag?? Movies not so many options"
Pros: "Configuration of seating"
Cons: "Minimal service didn't appear to be any attendants down ng periodic water service but I did doze off and may have missed it"
Cons: "In the US we board by row numbers. With Aer Lingus, the boarding was weird & illogical."
Pros: "Efficient flight, left a bit late door reasons beyond control of the airline."
Cons: "Website was difficult to navigate. Check in required filling lots of necessary information and if you did not do it quickly, it blanks it all out and you have to do it over. There is no indication of it timing out. Boarding announcements were difficult to understand as were announcements on the plane."
Cons: "The plane was delayed by an hour, they didnt have a plane so gave us a random budget airline plane from a company noone has heard of. Wasnt a big enough plane, so requested we check our hand luggage. Got on the plane and for a 7 hour flight there was no entertainment- unless you had a fully charged phone or tablet as they had an app but no where to charge your phone or tablet. Half way though the flight, it was announced that we had gone from 4 toilets to 1.5 (????) Landed in the us and it took an extra 30 minutes for luggage to show up on the conveyor / carousel. What a joke!"
Pros: "had to purchase tea and snacks"
Cons: "Booked flight through Kayak. In general a good experience except that Aer Lingus did not have any record of my grandson. Despite adequate documentation the AER Lingus staff were less than helpful and unfriendly."
Pros: "This was the first time I've flown Aer Lingus... and it won't be the last!! Great experience!!"
Pros: "Free movies and plenty of food"
Cons: "Would have liked to been able to afford better seats"
Cons: "Let us board, then flight was delayed. Sat on tarmac 2 hours. Didn't offer any snacks. Dinner options were poor."
Pros: "Great in flight entertainment. Everyone was nice and friendly, I had an extra seat, and I loved being able to charge my phone"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind!"
Cons: "Lost my luggage for two days. No compensation given. my seat in row 12 had no working entertainment and seat did not decline."
Cons: "Horribly uncomfortable in coach. Leather seats not foot. Clothe would’ve been better. They’d keep you from sliding."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. I got some sleep on this red eye flight, surprisingly."
Cons: "Delayed flight, seats were not comfortable."
Pros: "Good entertainment movies etc"
Cons: "Free food"
Pros: "the seat was comfortable"
Cons: "the food"
Pros: "Was ok. Got us there but everything is a la carte"
Cons: "Was ok. Newark is awful."
Cons: "Seats both support and recline"
Cons: "Economy seats are uncomfortable"
Cons: "Will never fly Iceland air again. N Horrible customer service"
Pros: "In time, no delays, very kind crew"
Cons: "Small selection of movies."
Pros: "Lots of legroom choice of entertainment"
Cons: "Flight delay. Long walk to gate for departure"
Pros: "The flight was nice."
Cons: "I didn't like the check in personal.The one older woman was very rude & I don't think I will be flying with you again."
Cons: "I preordered my food bars on the picture and it wasn't very good. I wished there was a description because I would have ordered something different."
Pros: "Awesome flight crew."
Pros: "Water bottle"
Cons: "Delay that made me miss my connecting flight, which was then rescheduled a full 24 hours later. This is cutting into my vacation and the time to see my family."
Pros: "I liked the movie options."
Cons: "I don’t understand how you can be on a flight for 5 hrs and all they give you is water!!!! The seats were beyond painful and the space was so cramped. There was no sleeping on this red eye. Plane noise was extremely loud and we were not by the wing. Our flight was delayed and they didn’t say a thing until it was past the time to board!!! Really?!? No apologies for it either. This is the worst flight I have ever been on. Dread getting in this flight to go home."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing"
Cons: "I needed to cancel my trip due to a work event being postponed. I tried to reach IcelandAir to do this as I needed proof of cancelled flights so I could submit to my trip cancellation insurance to get ticket price refunded. I tried contacting IcelandAir for well over 3 weeks, calling (sometimes on hold for hours before finally being cut off), numerous emails (that went unanswered), messaging on FB, I even opened a Twitter account to try to reach them through there- NOTHING! The flight was supposed to be taken last night- I received a FB message this MORNING apologizing for the delay, and informing me I needed to contact another party- I'm beyond blown away at the lack of professionalism and inability to answer a simple request, which was to cancel my flights BEFORE they were scheduled to depart."
Cons: "the employees will not help you if you have a problem with the charges or the website. They claim ignorance and an inability to do anything. Which might be true. But this can be problematic. Furthermore, the website does not work and they do not write back. The single worst travel airline in my book, though the flight itself was fine. The man I sat next to had his flight cancelled without a refund and a similar story to me, with no helpful employees."
Pros: "It was vegetarian. Very tasty, although the lentils were a little dry."
Cons: "The salad had a bit of grit in it! I think it was probably the lettuce that wasn’t thoroughly washed. Otherwise fine."
Cons: "boarding seemed like a mess! we were waiting forever near the gate before boarding the plane. Also, my bag is lost and no one has contacted me yet saying they have found it. the guy at the airport had no idea how to take appropriate information down and didn't know what to do. this ruined my trip. please let meknow if you find my bag as it has been two days now and I should have received by now!"
Cons: "The pilots was great, but the baggage was partially lost and we had to wait an hour while they found the rest and loaded it. For that hour, the airport positioned another jet with its engines firing into our air intake, so we spent the whole time coughing in fuel fumes. The crew had forgotten to put blankets out for about 1/3 of the plane on the overnight flight and didn't have enough to go around when the mistake was pointed out to them. Also, the check-in kiosks and web check-in were both faulty, so the desk assistants were overworked. Overall, the service was well intentioned, but inept. Not worth the cheaper ticket price."
Pros: "The free onboard entertainment was a welcome surpsise"
Cons: "The airline was late and every passenger missed their connecting flights. I had to wait another day and now that flight is delayed"
Pros: "Literally nothing"
Cons: "The seat was uncomfortable, the service was slow, both my flights (Newark to Reykjavik and Reykjavik to Heathrow) were delayed and the flight staff was incredibly poor about providing us updates not to mention any accuracy with the timing. Overall, my experience with Icelandic Air was so bad I will never fly with them again."
Cons: "We had an 8 hour delay and only learned of the delay when we arrived at the airport."
Cons: "Ridiculous delay made me lose my connection. Few alternative options to be rebooked."
Cons: "I recently was scheduled to fly out of Newark, NJ on Friday 10/20 but unfortunately there was an issue with my documentation. The airline support staff mistakenly tagged me as a no show however, I had been in contact with both the 3rd party vendor and the airline explaining my situation. I watched my 3 friends board a plan with no idea if I would get to go to Iceland, it was the weekend and no embassy was open to address what may have happened with my documentation. No one could tell me if I would be able to get on another flight and join my friends nor if I would be refunded, I was simply put on a no show list and bounced between several customer support representatives. I am very upset that the situation occurred"
Pros: "Friendly staff and great seat recline."
Cons: "No food."
Pros: "Flight was on time! Very helpful and courteous at the counter in assigning our seats!"
Cons: "Seats in Emergency Exit can't recline!"
Pros: "Clean. Moderately comfortable. Entertainment ok."
Cons: "Crews did not communicate much, they flew past with the water cart and somehow we missed them. When we asked for water they just glared at us. Not very friendly at all."
Pros: "Personal tvs"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Flight was fine, crew was fine."
Cons: "There were complications during checkin that resulted in everyone waiting on line for three hours while the employees tried to figure it out. They couldn't and eventually hand wrote boarding passes. In my opinion - they waited too long to make the decision to do this (over two and 1/2 hours us waiting in line no movement). Because of this, our flight was delayed. We made our connecting flight but our luggage did not. We took Icelander partner Swissair to Amsterdam. We went to the Swissair lost luggage office and spoke with a gentleman who informed us that our luggage was still in Reykjavik and would be flown to Amsterdam the next day (this was Monday at noon). I told him that we were not going to be in Amsterdam, but we're driving that afternoon to Koblenz, and would be staying there until Friday. He assured me that they would fly our luggage to Frankfurt and deliver it to our apartment the next day. I gave him our information, and he gave me a baggage claim with the phone number to check on the status. He told me they would contact me by phone the next day for delivery and that we would have to be present to sign for the luggage. We did not use this as an opportunity to go on a shopping spree. Instead, we bought some essentials (soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, underwear and a shirt) knowing that we had laundry facilities at our disposal. We did not receive our luggage on Tuesday. I called the number given to me Tuesday afternoon (after not hearing from the airline all day) and was told that my luggage had been shipped to Amsterdam....not Frankfurt. I explained again that we were not in Amsterdam and would not be back there until Friday. I was assured that they were putting the baggage on the next flight to Frankfurt via KLM airlines and we would have it the next day. On Wednesday afternoon, I again called the number after not hearing from them all day. I was informed now that our bags made it to Frankfurt airport but would not be delivered until the next day, Thursday. We had been wearing the same clothes since we left NY on Sunday. I asked to speak to the gentleman's manager. I wanted assurances that we would receive our luggage as no one, up to that point, from any airline (Icelandair or Swissair) had followed up with me. I was the one calling each day. He was very hostile and told us his manager was not there and there was no one else we could speak to. There was no other number we could call to discuss our claim. He got defensive and his answer was that the baggage was in KLM's hands and he could not answer for it anymore. Yet I wanted to know why I had not received an update each day, why after three days we did not have our luggage, and why none of them (Icelandair or Swissair) was making this a priority. Remember, our luggage was not lost at any time. They always knew where it was and they always knew where we were going to be. This representative hung up on me ."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Great crew service, entertainment and overall awesome hospitality"
Cons: "Nothing to snack on without paying. Airlines back at home at least give you crackers or nuts for free to hold you over- also, I find it a bit unfair how the drinks are distributed. I asked for an apple juice and received one cup while the lady next to me asked for a Diet Pepsi and received a whole can. A little unfairness there- but aside from that everything else was great."
Pros: "The seating is certainly bigger than economy domestic flights."
Cons: "No snacks given"
Pros: "crew was pleasant"
Cons: "lack of free snacks other than soda"
Pros: "Organized boarding from rear first Customer service"
Cons: "Seats uncomfortable"
Cons: "Why do you charge for food?? Even on an international flight??"
Pros: "Both flights on icelandair excluded basic things that are usually standard on other airlines I've flown with: for instance there were no free headphones or snacks or food at all, only things available for purchase. I did not have a good flight experience."
Cons: "The trans-Atlantic flight did not include any food, not even a tiny bag of pretzels"
Pros: "It was on time and the ticket agents were very helpful."
Cons: "The seats are extremely uncomfortable and the entertainment options were limited. The sound wasn't working for my headphones so it was a long, quiet, butt-numbing trip."
Pros: "The crew were VERY nice and accommodating"
Cons: "I have no complaints. I really could not rate the food because I didn't eat. Not much on the menu to choose from"
Cons: "USB port inop. Audio in movie mode was lousy, video screen was cloudy and poor def. Food not good."
Cons: "No free snacks or food"
Cons: "Aisle seat foot area was less than 1/2 the size of the middle seat."
Pros: "Service was attentive. Flight went very smoothly. I was glad the plane was not packed. He extra empty seats made it more comfortable."
Pros: "Icelandair paid for hotel, meals & transportation to & from hotel after we missed our connection to London in Reykjavik."
Cons: "My daughter had 2 checked bags and I had one. Our bags were lost so we had no belongings in Reykjavik for the day/night we were misconnected. One bag was found and delivered to our hotel in London the night of 6/30. The second was not found and delivered until 7/1, and I retrieved the third bag on 7/2 when departing Heathrow Airport to Vienna."
Pros: "Check in and boarding went okay"
Cons: "Constant delays. All planes were boarded at least 30-45 minutes later than expected and the late boarding delay on one of the flights caused the plane to miss a flight window and the entire plane had to sit on the tarmac for almost 3 hours. This extra time on the tarmac caused me to miss my connecting flight and I had to sit at the airport for over 8 hours waiting for the next available flight. Also, no complimentary food was given on a flight that long."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth"
Cons: "We could not confirm seats online before flight, and had difficulties with unhelpful staff checking in at Newark. She was able to get us seats together (2 couples), but ignored our request not to be in an exit row. Seat would not recline."
Pros: "Staff very friendly, easy flight."
Cons: "Found the food to be confusing. Wasn't sure what was included in my ticket, so I didn't get anything but water."
Pros: "The fact that we had dinner and a snack was great! The crew were fantastic!"
Cons: "It was a bit cramped but overall it was a wonderful experience"
Cons: "The least comfortable and smallest narrow business class seats ever"
Pros: "Great crew and service"
Cons: "It would be convenient to have phone chargers"
Cons: "The planes floor plan showed bathrooms which I avoided. But there were none at that spot so we lost out on more comfy seats."
Pros: "Great communication from all aspects of crew etc during our delay. Fantastic flight crew who are very sweet and caring. I also enjoyed that we had meals on the flight and didn’t have to pay. That is such a simple but wonderful things."
Cons: "Delayed due to storms etc. Never ideal."
Pros: "Very friendly"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the pilot did an excellent job getting us there safe."
Cons: "The food they served was not the greatest"
Pros: "Soft drinks + food"
Pros: "I like being serviced dinner on the flight. I like the personal iPad to watch movie."
Cons: "The seating was a little tight."
Pros: "The food was surprisingly tasty for an airplane - it looked horrific but that’s of no importance. The airplane staff was very friendly and generous, possibly due to delays everywhere."
Cons: "Delayed takeoffs on both legs of the flight, combined with absolutely awful layout at Heathrow which made us nearly miss our connecting flight. Why do we have to go through security again in London?"
Pros: "Friendly FA, good entertainment options."
Cons: "The seat density BA has put on the 787 is ridiculous for a long haul flight. Impossible for a grown adult to get comfortable with the narrow seat pitch on this aircraft."
Pros: "Almost everythibg was great"
Cons: "The screen wasnt working properly"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, good dinner, decent entertainment selection, a few very good crew members."
Cons: "IFE screens are rather small for it being a brand new plane."
Pros: "Simple trip no delays and pretty quick Flight time."
Cons: "Nothing to report"
Pros: "Did not rate the food as we slept through the meal"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive flight staff, excellent entertainment, pilot's candid messages."
Cons: "Strange seat layout. It felt crowded."
Pros: "It's British Airways so no frills really, just a cheap flight going to New York"
Cons: "Service as a whole is nothing more than a 3 star"
Cons: "Bumpy but not BA’s fault"
Pros: "Pleasant staff, trying to put a brave face on standards they know are slipping"
Cons: "No breakfast, no snacks, tired seats, poor entertainment , dreadful food (and I LOVE airline food!)"
Pros: "My seat was comfortable, with good head and neck support."
Cons: "BA doesn't allow guitars as carry ins, unlike most every other overseas carrier. That's a major negative for me, and I've spread the word to other musicians who will avoid the company. Terrible policy."
Pros: "The gate agents had no idea how to effectively board passengers in an expeditious and civilized manner. The on-board crew was top-notch. Seat room was adequate, but justthat."
Pros: "Civilized boarding process Warm welcome from crew Calming music upon boarding Ample leg room + comfortable seat Redeye amenities at seat (headphones, ear plugs etc.) Nice food/drinks selection Clean restrooms"
Cons: "nothing, everything was great!"
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "The crew was great & the food was good. Service was good."
Cons: "BA doesn’t let you reserve seats when you book your flights, even for business class, never heard of that with any other airline, that’s just not right when you are spending so much money. Luckily for me the seat next to me was vacant, hence it was fine, otherwise it would have been very uncomfortable as it is a little too tight. on the 777 having 8 seats in a row is a tight space even with all the configuration."
Cons: "Paying $7000+ For a seat like this is a travesty"
Cons: "Plane was late which caused us to miss our connection and spend an extra 12 hours traveling to Gothenburg"
Pros: "Nothing to complain about. Everything excellent."
Pros: "Leg room seats"
Cons: "London transfer had to go through security again almost missed flight I'm sure some people didn't make it"
Cons: "Cramped seats. Entertainment system did not work well."
Cons: "Awesome staff! Great food and tea!"
Pros: "Both the staff and flight were great!"
Pros: "We Arrived safely. The captain explained the situations well."
Cons: "We left late and arrived late. They ran out of one of the menu items."
Pros: "Very little."
Cons: "Seats are ridiculously small! I'm only 5'11" and could barely fit. I can't imagine what it's like for a taller man. It's also the first time I ever broke into a sweat on a flight. There are no overhead vents! Complaints to the staff were met with a surly reply that nothing could be done. Food was inedible. Movies were ok but they put the box for the equipment under the seat in front of you! What little space we have for our feet is now taken up by the entertainment equipment!! I've had much better experiences on discount regional airlines than on this trans-Atlantic "premium" carrier."
Cons: "Four hours before departure, the flight was canceled! Unfortunately, the ticket workers were too few in trying to reboot all the passengers. I was transferred to United after an hour and a half wait but was sent back to Aer Lingus (who was operating the flight for BA) by United because the Aer Lingus ticket personnel made the reservation on United but failed to provide the information necessary to generate the ticket. Never British Airways/ Aer Lingus again!"
Pros: "Plane was nice"
Cons: "Didn't get food order correct"
Cons: "Seats are too small for anybody above 5'8". My knees were hitting the back"
Pros: "Inflight entertainment with access to recent movies. Service was good."
Cons: "Fee for assigned seating. No outlets for charging electronic devices."
Pros: "Great customer service all around! Staff was very responsive and apologetic to an unfortunate mid flight experience of a baby throwing up"
Cons: "All good!"
Pros: "the plane was spceous in the economy section. comparatively new aircraft and well maintained, the cabin crew were very co-operative, graceous and well behaved. overall good experience."
Cons: "the starting of serving non-veg food took very long time. british airways should focuss attention to this."
Pros: "The lounge services and staff at the airport."
Cons: "seats and surfaces not so clean in club world."
Cons: "The airline overbooked the flight and kicked us, along with 100 other passengers, off the flight and forced us onto a non-direct flight. They violated Passenger Rights, and every member of their staff treated us incredibly rudely. Due to their violations and illegal behavior, I am seeking legal counsel and plan to take the necessary action. I DO NOT recommend British Airways and will NEVER fly the airline again."
Pros: "British Airway's service is cordial and comfortable, which goes a long way to making the entire trip the same. Obviously they have no or little control over potholes in the air and wind turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to arrive 2 hours before our connecting BA flight departed Heathrow. Unfortunately because of loading delays on our original flight, we arrived in Heathrow 40 minutes late. The crew said that 60 minutes is the designated minimum but we used all of the 80 minutes plus, and it airport was NOT crowded. If BA is connecting to BA, then you have a responsibility ahead of time to address this problem and keep connecting passengers from getting overly distressed in a strange airport."
Pros: "Many things including the seat space and less crowded flight"
Cons: "Cost. One way close to 2000 USD"
Pros: "Maybe to other people the service was regular - but this was the fanciest flight I'd ever been on. The crew was great - never actually knew that much technology was available on the plane. I'm not a very fancy person and this was a really fun way to fly."
Pros: "Crew was attentive and polite."
Cons: "When the person in front of you lowers his seat 5 minutes after takeoff and keeps it down the whole flight, it makes it hard to eat and really uncomfortable. I have a LOT of miles (avieos or whatever they call them) but never get offered an upgrade to economy plus like I do on other airlines."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very pleasant. Blankets were nicer than most. Headrests on seat were good once figured out how to adjust it."
Cons: "It is bad enough being in economy seats on international flights, but now the box holding the electronics for the entertainment system takes up about 1/3rd of the under seat space. So trying to stretch out and sleep was very difficult and uncomfortable. Curry chicken was disgusting."
Pros: "Back facing window seat, flat bed, great service, good food, arrival on time"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth, the attendants attendant, the food surprisingly good, and the entertainment outstanding. An entire library of in-flight movies, a display of where your flight is in the world, a few in-lfight games and even an in-flight chatroom."
Cons: "A few times, I feel like the attendants either didn't notice me."
Cons: "Food unpleasant taste"
Cons: "British Airways lost out luggage as well as everyone in my party. All 10 pieces never made it on the connecting flight . To make matters worse the line to fill out lost luggage forms was over a 2 hour wait. The people working there were rude and not helpful. No answers after calling from my hotel in Spain. Again rude and not helpful ."
Pros: "Crew and pilot were great."
Cons: "The plane was absolutely PACKED during the peak of a global pandemic. Completely irresponsible to not have people spaced out by at least one seat."
Pros: "Nothing. Will never fly American again"
Cons: "Better customer service at the gate."
Cons: "there was no social distancing"
Cons: "Lady at the gate barely paid any attention to the line. I had to ask her whether or now I can proceed"
Pros: "Yes the crow was good"
Cons: "The wifi should be free to use without paying for it"
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "More snack options"
Pros: "I pay $30 more for my bags"
Cons: "I pay $30 more for my bags,"
Cons: "Phoenix airport is horrible for on time departures. Always."
Pros: "Most was pretty standard. We did arrive 30 minutes early, which was nice."
Cons: "My bag was checked at the gate, and I was told I could pick it up in Sint Maarten, my final destination. I arrived in Sint Maarten to learn that AA had left my luggage at Charlotte Airport, despite having landed 30 minutes early."
Cons: "Food was what you’d expect on a plane, wine and beer service was nice. No real entertainment unless you could see the screen on the roof. WiFi was kind of expensive. Cabin crew were very nice"
Pros: "More space in these seats than in other flights I’ve taken"
Cons: "Waited on the tarmac for over an hour before departure with very little explanation."
Cons: "Service was excellent"
Pros: "I like that I made it home alive."
Cons: "Everything about Departing and arriving was a Poor experience. I might not be using this particular airline again. 4 Airlines now on my list of do not use."
Pros: "No need to drive from OKC!!!"
Pros: "Fast and easy service"
Cons: "In 2 weeks, my husband and I had 4 flights with American and none of them went as planned. We endured flight cancellation, incomplete rebooking with another airline, rude customer service agents, multiple flight delays as well as multiple day lost luggage. Finally, it cost $2K more to get to my destination. Obviously not flying American again."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "At the end of three flights to obviously be understaffed and to have luggage take an hour and fifteen minutes is disrespectful and shows how AA is callous about it’s passengers needs."
Pros: "Entertainment streaming was decent."
Cons: "The Crew Tried to take us from our seats so they could sleep in our seats. They tried to relocate us to the last row where the seats don't recline.they were very abusive and rude, we have it all on a body Cam and we'll lodge formal charges against American Airlines once we return to the States. Worse Trip EVER."
Pros: "Rude staff at the check in counter both flights. Very disappointed in American"
Cons: "Rude agent at first check in and again at second check in"
Pros: "American did transfer us to another flight after several hours' delay."
Cons: "Lack of scheduled flight crew caused a 2 hour delay causing American to re-route us via Chicago in lieu of Phoenix. Still, arrived 2 hours later..."
Pros: "I like the cookies. Any flight that safely lands is a good flight. I didn't have to hear the inflight "entertainment". There was room for my backpack, and I was in group 6 on a nearly full flight."
Cons: "I hate having media flashed in my face. The srewardesses misses me when serving beverages, which is hard to imagine, and rarely happens. We had a particularly bumpy landing. I've flown a fair amount, and I thought our bouncing and jostling was unusual, but then weather is unpredictable - still... I've seen navy pilots stick landings of small planes in worse weather."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "No personal space or legroom. Uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "I liked that you could watch TV and movies from your personal device without a charge."
Cons: "That the flight was delayed."
Pros: "Great attendants. Easy ride. Easy take off, easy landing."
Cons: "We departed late due to something going on in the runway. No free wifi option."
Pros: "Ticket price was competitive."
Cons: "No individual entertainment systems on the seat backs--4.5 hours is a long time to be sitting on a plane with only an overhead screen showing whatever movie the airline chose. Also, charging $125 for a carry-on pet that has to stay under the seat AND having it count towards as one of my two "free" carry-ons is ridiculous. The flight was delayed because one of the crew was late."
Pros: "Getting to my seat was overall the best experience. Out side of the finally walking onto the plane and sitting down, over an hour late, it was less than mediocre."
Cons: "If the plane was on time and didn't run an hour and 20 Ish minutes late, it would have been fine, except for the blinking over head reading light that would flash in my face every 20/30 seconds that could not be turned off being due to, as the flight attendant said, "they all do that"."
Pros: "Friendliness of flight crew; entertainment choices."
Cons: "Food was poor for first class."
Pros: "Crew was very professional"
Cons: "My flight was delayed 5 hours"
Pros: "3 hrs delay Small plaine No entertainment"
Pros: "Priority boarding provided by my credit card"
Pros: "The staff was completely nice (except when I was trying to rebook my ticket and I felt like there was no understanding of what I was going through)."
Cons: "There was a strange situation outside of LGA wherein I sat in a car for nearly an hour once already at the airport. I don't know what was going on but we were trapped there and it caused me to miss my flight. There were no other flight out and I ended up having to book an entirely new ticket. I believe that LGA or American Airlines should refund my expenses, because otherwise it makes me not want to ever go through either again."
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "No meal. Only a bag of pretzels and one drink. Even half a sandwich would have been acceptable."
Cons: "Everything was ok"
Pros: "I liked the seating on the first part of the flight and the snacks"
Cons: "The exit row seats were very confining g..way to narrow due to type of seat used..had the tray in the arm"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "3 hrs on tarmac then weather canceled flight then hoax shutdown JFK"
Pros: "The flight had a 3+hour delay leaving New York and the connecting flight from Phoenix had another hour delay. The customer service rep on the phone did her best to help me but there was no way for me to get to my destination on time (I had given myself a 2.5 hour cushion."
Cons: "Over 4 hours of delays made me miss my best friend's wedding rehearsal dinner-- and i was the best man. Completely unacceptable."
Pros: "every thing is okay other than the delay."
Cons: "delay in departure for 2 hrs"
Cons: "I took a flight in 2016 from Newark New Jersey four times and I only went to Florence South Carolina one time. I ended up in Myrtle Beach South Carolina, another time in Columbia South Carolina and the last time in Charlotte North Carolina. Each time I departed I had to pay to come back to Florence South Carolina."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "1 hour on the runway for a 1 hour flight"
Pros: "No lines at checkpoints..on time departure and arrival!"
Cons: "The boarding calls seem excessive. So many specialty groups! Military in uniforms, people with this or that credit card, people in this or that club."
Cons: "The airline was rude and unaccommodating. They refused to let me get on a flight that was not leaving for 45 minutes. Then they try to tell me that I had to wait in the airport for five hours to get another flight. I booked passage with JetBlue"
Pros: "Friendly Flight Crew, Smooth take off and landing :) Arrived on Time."
