I booked my flight business class trip to Thailand with kayak, but my final leg from Seattle to Denver was not processed correctly though Kayak (according to Qatar Airways). As such my first class ticket for a three hour flight turned into a 9 hour flight from Seattle Anchorage to Denver economy middle seat and no one is willing to answer what happened or take responsibility!!
The flight attendants were super friendly and attentive. I wish there were better entertainment options and a wider movie selection.
Going there and coming back, I had not preordered a meal. The first time it was because I had no idea that they would not have anything additional for people to purchase onboard. The second time, I was simply busy with my family and overlooked the food order. As a diabetic, I hope this practice of “preorder only” changes.
Cons: "Inflight entertainment didn't work"
Pros: "Great staff friendly and accommodating"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "High price for mediocre seat"
Pros: "Nice crew."
Cons: "What entertainment??"
Pros: "The male steward was very nice"
Cons: "Flight was delayed on tarmac for 2 hours better communication"
Pros: "Great crew, a lot of space in the aircraft"
Cons: "More entertainment"
Pros: "Thank you so much for getting my confused and forgetful mother in law onto the right plane and back and forth from the gates."
Cons: "Don’t know"
Pros: "Friendly crew. Great movie selection through gogo inflight entertainment!"
Cons: "Full flight so understood but no one likes the middle seat."
Pros: "There was a good selection for the on-flight entertainment"
Cons: "It was a long time to travel with only drinks and a snack."
Pros: "Accommodation and sevice was good."
Pros: "I liked the free biscuits, the free drinks, the leg room, the overhead room, and the three bathrooms."
Cons: "I would have liked free WiFi."
Pros: "The crews are always great, and as far as economy fares go, it's pretty standard comfort."
Cons: "The seats are far too narrow, and this thing where every airline overbooks, forcing people to check carry-ons, etc. is really getting old. Maybe go back to rolling luggage fees into the price so not so many people try to game the carry-on policy? Seems to be a complete failure in practice."
Pros: "Boarding. Crew. Entertainment. Smooth ride"
Cons: "Not to pay for food and should have given us 2 meals in a 6 and a half hr flight"
Pros: "Everything was great but"
Cons: "It was an old dated plane. Only reason good not great"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Pros: "Great premium class seats"
Cons: "Wish there were food options that didn’t include chocolate at every turn!"
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: "Seats are comfortable, crews are all approachable and helpful."
Pros: "Great on time too"
Cons: "Very happy"
Pros: "Good movies to watch"
Cons: "I was only offered a snack once. But drinks 3x."
Pros: "Staff friendly and helpful, food choices, seat comfy, ease of boarding, gate check bag came right away."
Pros: "Bigger, roomy seats, courteous service, clean plane"
Cons: "No complaints at all"
Pros: "Simple ways that make the atmosphere in the air a little more welcoming and friendlier."
Pros: "I liked the movie selection and the ride was smooth"
Cons: "I didn’t like that there wasn’t any food for a fiver hr flight !!"
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: "They were very hospitable and humorous"
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: "They made good time getting us home to Seattle before the estimated landing time."
Cons: "The plane didn’t have device charging ports like some do."
Pros: "Updated customer technology, few interruptions, great staff"
Cons: "1-2h delay that wasn’t told until everyone was already boarded. Sitting on the plane for any extra time for a 6h flight isn’t ideal!"
Cons: "Late departure, no headphones on board (thus no access to movies etc), and while waiting at gate to depart, plane became very hot with no airflow, Electronic ordering system for drinks also was not working And it’s absurd that a 6.5 hour flight has no snacks or food offered. Cheap Branson."
Cons: "Two rows up from us, I kid threw up all over the center aisle as we were pulling away from the gate. We returned to the gate to allow a cleaning crew to board and clean. However, the cleaning job was rushed and left remnants of the throw up behind which smelled the whole 2.5 hour flight. It really felt unsanitary and unsafe being that it’s unknown what caused the child to get sick. It very well could have been a stomach virus and could have infected the people in rows around the incident due to the mediocre cleaning job. I understand that it’s important to keep flights on-time, especially for connecting flights, but the safety of the passengers and their health should ALWAYS be the #1 priority."
Pros: "The plane was nice and clean and the staff friendly...good in flight movies and tv selection"
Cons: "The flight left 1 1/2 hours late..I know it happens but would been nice to have been offered a free snack maybe... I feel like they should have a few free snack options..regardless..even if it is just peanuts or trail mix, pretzels etc.."
Pros: "Although the departure was delayed because of regulations for the flight crew, they made up the time and got us to Lortland only 15 minutes later than originally planned! Flight crew was friendly and fabulous!"
Pros: "The food order concept"
Cons: "No food, not even snacks, despite the long fligjt"
Pros: "My chair was broken the entire plane and there was no where to move me to. I was uncomfortable the entire flight"
Cons: "Update your planes"
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: "At boarding, when overhead bins are full, you cannot force passengers to check their bags if they had planned not to. I was in a rush when I land and because it was delayed too I did not want to also have to wait for my bag at baggage claim. I was completely late to an event I was to be at."
Pros: "The lounge at airport was first rate"
Cons: "It was one of the worst flight in memory in terms of servoce"
Cons: "Bathroom was disgusting, there wasn’t a trash so people threw their hand towels on the floor."
Pros: "USB / 3 prong plug-ins at every seat :)"
Cons: "No free snacks, the air vents above the seats didn’t work particularly well... one of the crew members had told me I could use front restroom, I went to use it again & one of the female flight attendants was very rude telling me there was 3 restrooms in the back of the plane. Very short and dismissive... definitely wasn’t as good as JetBlue flights..."
Cons: "Food and wine way over priced."
Pros: "I'm a big fan of Alaska Airlines and their partner Horizon Airlines. I travelled from Edmonton to Denver via Seattle last night. All the staff if pleasant and treats you as a valued customer."
Pros: "Boarding was a breeze, crew communicated well, seats were comfortable, plane wasn't too hot or too cold"
Cons: "Had a problem with checking my baggage in anchorage which led to $300 being held from my account for 5 days. They refunded my baggage fee though"
Pros: "Almost everything. First time flying with Alaska Airlines thought the food would be better o thought the food would be better on such a long flight but it was enough to snack on until I got to Seattle great experience in between flights was able to get an earlier flight to Denver"
Cons: "Wish there was a little bit more offered for food but overall a fantastic experience mahalo"
Lots of time on the tarmac at both ends. LOTS of crew announcements that didn’t need to be made.
The flight was ok, the baggage claim took almost 2 hours. :(
Very satisfied with all aspects of my jet blue experience. Highly recommended.
Delayed with no updates and zero taking care of passengers
Crew was arrogant and obnoxious. Wouldn’t help me pick up trash and another poured coffee on me twice, with one pathetic “sorry”. Flight attendants had so much baggage that passengers couldn’t find space in the overhead compartments causing a significant delay in our departure. In bound aircraft was late arriving from Haiti exasperating the situation. Based on this trip I would not recommend jet blue to anyone
Pros: "It’s nice that a snack was provided. Other airlines have stopped serving snacks because of COVID-19"
Cons: "Crew could have been more welcoming."
Cons: "I paid extra to sit in the front of the plane and the flight attendant kept an egregiously bright LED light on that shined in my face the entire 4+ hour trip. I was really tired and extremely upset that there was no curtain or anything to stop this light from shining directly at my seat."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for quite awhile. I had been traveling all day and I just wanted to go home. We also were not informed why it was delayed for so long."
Cons: "Tv’s were fickle and my other seat had no audio."
Pros: "The flight was on time, and we boarded quickly and promptly."
Cons: "They sat me next to the bathroom which I found really disgusting. It was hard to eat while listening to people endlessly flush the toilet. Disgusting."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Everything was fine. It was a smooth trip to Denver."
Pros: "The crew was great. They let me go back to see if I could find my laptop that JFK TSA did not return."
Pros: "The cabin crew came through to collect waste from the passengers and made an effort to separate recyclables from trash. Air travel generates too much waste so it's nice to see JetBlue making an effort to reduce waste."
Pros: "There was free internet in the flight! In addition to movies and what not."
Cons: "It only flies out of JFK, and it is a bit far for me"
Pros: "Jet blue has free potato chips and also allows you to watch television."
Cons: "Jet Blue provided 5 sequential delay messages over an hour. Their inability to better estimate departure is disappointing. The real problem is that delay was caused directly by the airline's incompetence. There were no weather issues, the takeoff spots were available. They simply failed to load snacks. Although there WAS a minor prior delay bc a slightly late plane arrival, we eventually were delayed about an extra hour to supply snacks on a 4-hr flight. Given the ground crew had EXTRA time to load and also considering the tiny set of options offered, this is senseless. Further, b/c they ran out of overhead bins, they offered to GATE check my luggage. This was essentially a lie - they put it with checked bags, unlike the gate checked items I watched others retrieve. The combination of these errors led me to arrive at the car rental desk after closure. This caused me to incur a taxi fare, so spend 30 min or so working out an alternative rental the following day, and then yet ANOTHER cab to the Car Desk to get the car. This is the only time in my hundred or so car rentals anything like this has happened. I will certainly think twice (or more) before booking Jet Blue again."
Pros: "Just disappointed in delay of about 1:15"
Pros: "Pretty average JetBlue flight. I love the direct TV and wifi"
Cons: "Annoying and time consuming to discover that I couldn’t check in for my flight anywhere besides the counter at JFK because I had two layovers and that JetBlue and Hawaiian had completely different itineraries for me. And then when the flight attendant who checked me in mocked my 2 layover itinerary and said there was a direct flight to HNL from JFK leaving later that morning, she at least could have tried to sell me a seat on that flight, rather than rudely laugh at me “I guess you can only do what you can do” like I was too poor or something. That was annoying. I’m bored of the JetBlue snack selection it’s been the same for years."
Pros: "The Jetblue lounge at JFK.. and the TV was pretty nice"
Cons: "To start, the plane was delayed due to inflight crew getting in late which is fine.. but our departure time never updated and the attendants were transparent but never mentioned a new time. After onboarding we got stuck on the tarmac due to traffic. Flight took off with turbulence to start and finally after 45 mins we got bottles of water. I asked crew if they would come around with more... I was starving and also have the perk of free alcoholic beverages in flight. I was offered neither and we only received chips 1+ hour into the flight. One of our TVs broke and the crew wasn’t helpful in an alternative... Overall worst Jetblue exp I’ve had to date, and I’ve flown with them a lot due to my Mosaic status.."
Pros: "L'espace dans l'avion - c'est la 1ère fois que j'en ai autant en classe éco ! Le personnel de bord, vraiment adorable, drôle et à l'écoute"
Cons: "Pas de distraction et collation limitée. Mais c'est vraiment un détail !"
Pros: "Price of ticket is about it."
Cons: "From the time I got to the gate 90 minutes before flight to the time I got off it was terrable. Delays before boarding with no explanation then the same continued onboarding. First it was waiting for bags. Strange when there's a 2 hour+ delay that all the bags weren't there? Then waiting for paperwork followed by the part they needed was incorrect and a new one was on it's way from the hanger.. Finally departed 1 hour plus later. The plane was an old cattle car. Free TV didn't work right, so at did not recline (no it wasn't an exit row.). Most of the crew and gate attendants were rude and indifferent except for on flight attendant. The entire row of seats didn't recline at all. She was very apologetic and acknowledged it was uncomfortable especially on a 5+hour flight. She did offer us something to eat, blankets earbud. Still my back was killing me upon arrival at Phoenix. JEt Blue. Get your act together. This is unacceptable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 6hrs 30 mins and changed departure gate twice. At no point was there a gate change announcement overhead (there were gate change announcements made for flights to Bermuda, Boston and San Francisco). During the boarding process many people stood and went in before their group was called, one agent noticed it and told the agent checking the boarding passes “all of these people are group A?” To which the other agent replied: “no, but I can’t do anything about it”. If there are group assignments, they need to honor that, as some people pay to board earlier."
Pros: "Cabin crew were great at looking after us and we had plenty of legroom in coach!"
Cons: "The entertainment selection was a bit limited and there was no wi-fi."
Pros: "The crew was great, and so was a JetBlue pilot dead-heading in the seat next to me. I liked the space in the MoreSpace seat I paid for. I relieved that the upgrade seat came with boarding in the first group. Some airlines you pay for the seat, but you're still group 3 or 4 and, meaning all sorts of anxiety about the most miserable part of any flight, the dreaded fight for the overhead bins, wondering it you'll have to check the bag and then wait for it at the destination. Thank you for removing that."
Cons: "The flight attendant was sitting next to me and wouldn’t shut up. So annoying!!!!"
Cons: "The flight took off two hours late. We were suppose to arrive at our destination at twenty minutes after midnight, and instead did not arrive until 2:30 a.m. You felt like the pilot got on the plane when you did with no planning involved on how to get to Austin. I later learned that Jet Blue has the worst on time record of all the airlines. And you got nothing to compensate you for the inconvenience. I am really disappointed in Kayak for not making it known on our ticket that we were flying from New York to Austin on Jet Blue. When buying my tickets on Kayak, it appeared on my itinerary that all my flights were on Iceland Air. It was very confusing to me, as I don't travel very frequently. And airport staff is not very helpful when you are in this situation. Due to all the confusion, I will probably use another airline search tool for my next trip to see if I can lessen the confusion."
Cons: "I was delayed half a dozen times, only to be canceled. Rescheduled on a flight that was scheduled to depart two hours before the original flight. Rescheduled after an hour hold. That flight was delayed the following day. Was diverted to Baltimore only to find out only some of us on our flight are getting out by a rude agent. Then no information at all. Had to run to catch an amtrak. Later found out if I stayed I would have stayed another 13 hours in Baltimore. Missed work and had no one home to take care of my family. Oh, and travel insurance will not cover anything. The plane itself was falling apart. Seat was broken and dirty. Everyones lights were broken and it smelled."
Pros: "Food was really good, but the cabin crew were up to JetBlue's normal outstanding service"
Cons: "The range of movies is still pretty poor (if you're a frequent JetBlue traveller)"
Pros: "We started late and the flight was unbelievably bumpy and no updates from the pilot - it’s nerveracking!! It also took us an additional hour to get to Denver!"
Pros: "Virtually nothing."
Cons: "Direct TV didn't work -- provided only one station, with a constant scroll across the bottom of the screen promoting the imminent start of movies that we're impossible to access. And even this one station would disappear from time to time. None of the seat-mounted controls worked -- including channel, volume, brightness, and music. And you couldn't even turn the damned thing off so it glowed in your face all through the overnight flight. In short, a terribly boring 6.5 hours aloft in terribly uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Great selection of food and entertainment, nice service."
Cons: "We taxied for 40 minutes before taking off without getting any information about why we weren’t moving."
Pros: "The TV was nice"
Cons: "Some of the most uncomfortable seats both to and from Denver that I have ever sat in. Felt like sitting on a stone park bench. My back still aches 2 days later. It was a redeye, so I didn't much interact with the crew, but they seemed efficient and professional. They did not wake up during drink service, which was appreciated. Those planes suck!"
Pros: "We boarded right on time and the boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed three hours because of air conditioning malfunctioning on the plane. We sat on the tarmac for almost two and a half hours, and it must have been around 85 degrees on the plane. There was a lot of miscommunication about whether we would be switching aircraft. They finally told us to deplane because we were probably going to switch planes. After 15 minutes in the terminal, we reboarded the same plane. Got to LA 3 hours late so had to deal with horrible rush hour traffic, which we had hoped to avoid had we taken off on time."
Pros: "They canceled the fly and left me in NY 3 days did not gave any reson for wy they cancel the flight and the didn’t help with hotel or noting cal"
Pros: "The convenience of landing and being so close to home. Only wished there were more flights avail with better times."
Cons: "1) The time of this flight is a bit much. I understand that it is close to my home but I know if Jet Blue adds 1 or 2 more flights, they would totally get booked up. The leaving JFK at almost midnight and then the time difference is horrible. 2)This flight had a child that got sick and we were delayed about 40-45 mins. Totally worth it but it made for an even harder time getting in at almost 630am PR time. 3) The turbulence was horrible. We were warned but so many customers were getting sick. Its was unpleasant to say the least."
Pros: "Okay food and drinks"
Cons: "There were smelly people on a hot plane making more smells here and there for over 3 hours. I couldn’t breathe. My entertainment console did not work to full capacity"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 5 hrs. Not the airline's fault but waited in the help line for over an hr before the agent told me there was no earlier flight I could be placed on - she was incorrect. Pointed out that there was another flight that had also been delayed and therefore hadn't left yet - she agreed, put me on standby. At the gate, the boarding crew did not know what they were doing. The plane was 20% empty but crew made situation very hectic by giving standby passengers seats, taking them away, and then realizing there was actually enough room on the plane. Crew was friendly but incompetent in terms of problem solving."
Cons: "First thing, when i arrived to check my bags the lady giving help was useless, i was really stressed and i asked her some questions and she was answering upset, then i found a guy who help me to do my things there. In the boarding there wasn't any space for my things, my carry on bag and my personal item .. i was trying to get some help to one of the guys working inside the plane because the top compartment was full, when i ask him he just say that space is for all in the plane isn't suppose to be space for you there if some other guest took it.. I was really upset because i paid for my flight ticket and it was included my carry on and my personal item.. otherwise i know there is more people in the plane but is not like i brought more things than the ones i paid for... if you don't have capacity for all the guest you should say it before... The flight was delayed with an hour.."
Pros: "Leg room was good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed twice, then we had to sit on the plane for around 45 minutes before we could take off. I never seem to get in and out of JFK on JetBlue without some type of delay."
Pros: "The crew was helpful."
Cons: "Flight was over two hours late. No excuse was given. Original Departure time was 9:30pm. Was receiving alerts beginning from that morning notifying of delays which continued as I waited at the airport that night. This seems to happen frequently and nothing is ever done to make it up to travelers. On the plane, the audio for the tv had static so you couldn't actually hear anything. It doesn't seem like you can turn the tvs off, which is annoying as they emit light, so if you want to sleep you have to deal with the light from your tv."
Cons: "you never put my luggage on my flight, so I had no clothing for the day."
Cons: "Online check in refused to let me pick a seat even though the plane was not full. It then did not generate, or allow me to print at the airport, a boarding pass. When my connection arrived at 7pm I stood in line at the gate while the airline employee working completely ignored us for a solid 15 minutes waiting to get my boarding pass. the flight then said it was delayed with a departure time of 9:05 and we did not even start boarding until after 9pm."
Pros: "Boarding first from rear seats worked for me because that's where I was sitting. Worked also for people in rows before they were announced. Gate agent didn't care I guess. My row mates get credit for sharing my middle armrests. Seats are tight. Loved the free Direct TV. Perfect for longer flights. Chose no food"
Cons: "Boarding first from rear seats worked for me because that's where I was sitting. Worked also for people in rows before they were announced. Gate agent didn't care I guess. My row mates get credit for sharing my middle armrests. Seats are tight. Crew didn't enforce the 'upright & locked' in row ahead at landing"
Cons: "Had to pay for snacks and blanket, which is ridiculous. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Nice flight attendants..."
Cons: "Very cold in cabin-"
Pros: "I liked the spacious seating of course"
Cons: "I was disappointed in the boarding, I traveled with my young daughter and infant son and when they announced those who require additional time, handicap assistance,etc I proceeded to board then all these other folks also jumped up skipping me and my children when it was not their turn. And the gate people allowed them to do so I had to be the one to say excuse me we were here 1st. On top of that when we landed back in NY I heard my stroller get tossed and discovered when I got home it was broke. So upset!!!"
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "Everything about the stews reflected that they'd much rather be somewhere else. Boarding was made into a ceremony worthy of the Papal Stations of the Cross - for God's sake, you were only boarding 40-odd people! Food...??? You're willing to SELL me junk food, water?!!! Far and away the worst aspect of this flight, though, was the ticket counter personnel, timing, process-boundness. A. the counter did not open until 0930 for an 1130 flight....you require me to be present 2 hours prior to takeoff, yet your people are not available to service B. the woman at the counter forced me to check luggage that I have carried onboard aircraft all over the world with no flack from anybody, my protestations notwithstanding C. she then explained that our checked luggage could and would not be checked through to our final destination and when I protested that I had had no such issues coming east and could not understand why we were having this conversation, she referred me to "policy." Malarkey. Want to hear something funny? The bags ended up being checked all the way, making my departure from the secure area to claim my bags at JFK pointless, and necessitating my submitting to security lines and scrutiny once again. As I said to my wife at the time of this debacle, if Aer Lingus is the only airline flying US-UK and a rowboat is my only alternative, please pass me the oars."
Pros: "Good boarding process. Comfortable seats with decent leg space."
Pros: "Comfortable seats. Good selection of movies."
Cons: "The crew was rather lazy. It was a long flight. Came through once to offer snacks and drinks then back again immediately to pick up trash when u just received your snacks. Then never offered water or additional items for rest of flight. Of 3 flight atttendants they sent one person to do the final cleanup while others stood around. Waited at gate after boarding for almost 2 hours so the catering truck could replenish the plane so u would think they could be more hospitable since our flight was not full."
Old plane. Zero leg room. Dour staff. Turn lighting on repeatedly on redeye - spend half the time making useless announcements. Impossible to sleep even if you were in 1st class.
I had to cancel my trip because of COVID delta. My brother who I visiting got scared and didn’t want me to visit. I paid for insurance that you provided through your site. Allianz hidden in terms that canceling because of COVID fear isn’t covered. I was never offered insurance through delta on your site witch I would have bought. Delta isn’t even giving me a credit for a flight and keep my money. What a scam and I’m very disappointed in the services I received.
Boarding was on time (if not a little early). The flight was unfortunately not properly catered for snack boxes in main cabin. This is likely a one off instance, but it’s a long flight for no food options other than pretzels and Biscoffs. Service was attentive and friendly. This particular flight offered Delta’s DeltaOne lay flat first class seats. Would highly recommend. Flight left on time and arrived early!
It would have been nice to be served some water
The 2 hour delayed and the seats were very uncomfortable for economy
We flew First Class to LA from Denver on the Delta-branded contract airline - Sky West. On the way back, we flew First Class on a Delta Airlines owned jet, and the experience was so much better. The flights should have been comparable; but unfortunately cost-cutting by Sky West was evident.
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "The main economy seats were far too narrow."
Cons: "It was a Great flight. I always enjoy flying Delta"
Cons: "Give food to passengers"
Pros: "Boarding was easy."
Cons: "I am 6' 1" tall and weigh 220, so not out of the ordinary and I felt like I was stuffed into a sardine can."
Cons: "Boarding at JFK.Always messy"
Cons: "After a delay of about an hour on a very full flight the gate agent asked for volunteers to check their rollaboard suitcases. The gate agents then allowed those who checked their rollaboards to board before Zone 1,which was fine. However, a bunch of people without gate check stickers on the rollaboards were also allowed to board before Zone 1, which was aggravating. There was a long delay on the tarmac, during which we had to pull back to the gate or to a maintenance area before we finally took off. When we arrived in Vegas there was no gate for us to pull into, which led to another long delay of an already long and delayed flight."
Pros: "Good entertainment selection and great crew"
Cons: "Seats are more uncomfortable relative to other airlines"
Pros: "Delta cramps people into these planes and forces you to put your bags under a seat because they stuff at the overhead spaces. They nickel and dime you for every single thing. There was even one person I saw who had to pay for his headphones to listen to the onboard entertainment. I think Delta should quit being so cheap with the profits they make and give it back to your flying customers. It borders on gouging."

Pros: "We boarded close to on time, no hassles. Allowed my husband and me (retired military) to board early, thank you."
Cons: "LAX security is awful. We never left the airport (arrived LAX from Sydney AU) yet were forced thru security again. Had to remove shoes, was scanned and "frisked" by TSA to get to Denver. To go to Australia, Denver TSA waived the removal of shoes, skipped the scan for the metal detector and no one touched me, ditto for LAX on the trip to Sydney. Where's the uniformity or standards for TSA?? Why did I have to be subjected to this garbage on the way home?? This is why I despise flying. It makes no sense to me. This ruined what was a great vacation."
Pros: "Not much. Boarding by "zone" works ok, but is no quicker than most other boarding methods."
Cons: "Boeing 767-400ER seats had no leg room for 6'+ traveller like me. The entertainment system was so old that there were no 115v outlets or USB ports. On a 7-hour flight, that is a significant problem for travellers today with multiple electronic devices. Finally, we were not told in advance that we had to go through security twice and through US Customs BEFORE leaving Dublin. So, the 6-hour layover at JFK was a complete waste of our time as we did not have to go through Customs there."
Pros: "JFK to Denver the flight Attendants were once again great. Lots of entertainment choices again. The usual rough air coming into DIA."
Cons: "From JFK to Denver the seats were to close for leg room by an inch or two. The temperature was hot most of the flight."
Pros: "very nice and willing stewardesses"
Cons: "tragic little place for legs, lack of space"
Cons: "My daughter was booked on this itinerary and was finishing her last leg of journey. Complete ticket was booked thru Delta Airlines. Her flight from Amsterdam to New York today operated by KLM, was delayed by few minutes. And Delta flight from JFK to Cleveland DL4084 was preponed by airlines. Result was my daughter was not allowed to board the aircraft. Worst was yet to come. Your staff at the gate offered her a flight to Cleveland for next day at 3:30 pm??? Means around 24 hours later. Is this how you behave with a girl of 19 years, asking her to stay at the airport. She was refused Hotel and Lounge stay by your team!!! Is this what you call customer services??? Obscene services is what I would like to term it as!!! My daughter asked them to give this is writing, which was refused to her. Why are your people scared to put it in writing if everything that you are doing is right by the Law??? I was left with no other option but to book her on American Airlines flight today departing at 9 pm to ensure that little girl doesn’t have to spend close to 24 hours at airport by paying $423. Who is going to bear the loss of money and mental torture that your team has given to me and my daughter???? I shall be awaiting your response as to what do you have to say to this pathetic attitude of your team. Rajesh Mendiratta Sent from my iPhone Rajesh"
Pros: "The flight for getting us therw"
Cons: "No food and no entertainment"
Pros: "I paid 60 bucks for an emergency row exit, take get some extra leg room and space so that I would be fresh when I arrived in Munich. However KLM allowed a passenger — who did not pay for the emergency row to sit next to me because he needed the extra space because he was a liarge man, and clearly didn’t fit very well in the economy seats. Thus I I lost all the extra space and actually would of preferred a regular economy seat. that would’ve been more preferential then paying $60 and getting less space than I would’ve had it in a regular economy. I understand the other passengers comfort was important and if that was the case he should’ve paid $60 as well."
Cons: "I did not get a choice of seat for the one and a half hour flight from Amsterdam to Munich and I sat in a middle row for the first time in 20 years."
Cons: "It was not acceptable and very disappointed that flight DL391 from SDQ to NY-JFK was delayed till it left at 4:40pm because there were no crew members to bring the aircraft to STO DGO the night before as it is usually done so that the aircraft sleeps over in las Americas. We were at the airport at 4:30am because the flight was scheduled to depart at 6:05am we were lucky to be able to rebook for a flight SDQ-ATL DL576 for the same day hoping to make the connection ATL-IND. Unfotunately that flight was rerouted to Charlotte due to bad weather conditions with a delay of 3 hrs before it landed in ATL thus missing our connection to INDI and had to sleep in ATL and leave the next day to IND thus missing a meeting commitment that we had in IND. We should and expect to be compensated by Delta for this."
Pros: "The seats had plenty of leg room and the crew was was very kind."
Cons: "My seat was uncomfortable and I was seated in the only row of the aircraft without entertainment for a four hour flight. Then on top of that the passenger next to me removed his shoes and you could smell his feet from a mile away but the flight attendants never requested for him to replace his shoes."
Pros: "The flight crew was friendly and personable. Beverage service was consistent and efficient. Entertainment and free WiFi messaging were great perks."
Cons: "The positives don’t even come close to offsetting the misery of Delta’s seats. I honestly don’t remember the last time I was so cramped and uncomfortable. I’m not an abnormally large man - 6 feet 200 lbs - and there was no room for my legs or my shoulders in an “upgraded economy” seat. I fly weekly for work on another major airline, and only took this one in a crunch. But I am quite certain this was my last Delta flight and I’ll be advising others similarly. The service and entertainment aren’t sufficient to mask an awful seat configuration."
Pros: "I usually have had great experiences with Delta. The meal selection was limited. By the time they made it up to my seat they had run out of what we wanted. Also, the entertainment system at my seat and my husbands wasn’t working well. One of the bathrooms had a cabinets Tvst oliiiooooiiooooioiooiiiooiio"
Pros: "Very comfortable and didn't feel cramped. Quick flight."
Cons: "No choice in snack and I couldn't eat what I was given. Staff appeared checked out and not bothered. No entertainment but it was a quick flight."
Pros: "Giid free sandwixh. Very good entertainment system. Good seats."
Pros: "It got me home, eventually."
Cons: "Poor communication, a 6 hour delay followed by a 7 hour layover (during which we had to sleep on an airport floor because Delta couldn't offer us any hotel vouchers). Gate agents disappeared after 7pm becuase they were due to be done with their shifts when our flight was originally supposed to leave at 6 pm. It felt like we were trapped in the movie The Terminal. Oh! And our bag was misrouted, because that was just how things went those 2 days. All in all a 6 hour trip turned into 18 hours. I could have driven home in that amount of time!"
Pros: "really helpful and friendly service and nice seats."
Cons: "Force me to take a bad seat"
Pros: "I didn't like much about this flight."
Cons: "Flight left late. When we landed the sky bridge was broken so we had to walk outside, which isn't a big deal but it took a while sitting on the runway for the stairs to come. Then we proceeded to baggage claim and waited a few minutes and one of our 2 bags was there. The crew member then said "that's everything. If you're missing bags come see us." Well about 5 people on a small flight had to see them. My bag was stuck in JFK. I was told id have to come back to the airport tomorrow. At this point id been traveling for close to 24 hours. Im not a happy camper. I usually fly JetBlue and this has never happened with them. Delta acted like its a normal thing with them. I paid 25 dollars to check each bag. How can both my bags not reach their final destination together and how come this seems like a normal procedure for Delta. I paid you for a service and now I have to drive back to the airport or wait for you at home to deliver my bags whenever Delta feels like it. I probably won't fly Delta again unless I absolutely have to."
Pros: "Friendliness of staff. Second flight was a newer plane - sweet!"
Cons: "For a long flight perhaps a little more in the snack department."
Pros: "We'd paid extra for main cabin so hot to choose seats and got in flight entertainment.. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "No free wifi."
Pros: "Boarding was very organized and quick. Slight delay taking off but not bad for JFK. Lovely crew. Bumpy flight but the captain kept us informed. Food better than expected. Flight arrived early but no gate so we had to wait."
Cons: "OMG! The seats are obnoxiously close together. I could only sit perfectly upright and even then my knees were pressed tightly against the seat in front of me. I am only 5'7". Impossible to rest due to lack of space. I tried to put my head down on my tray table but couldn't since it hit the seat in front of me. Mid flight my 13 year old daughter got back spasms. Upon arrival we could barely walk and looked like two old women limping down the jetway. No idea how a tall or larger person could have even sat down."
Pros: "Some of the ground staff was trying to be helpful."
Cons: "That we had to sleep like homeless people on the floor of JFK airport as the airline was not able to provide for a crew and therefore cancelled the flight. The airline cancelled the flight at 1.30 in the morning so no one was able to get a stay in a hotel not did the airline take any action towards helping the stranded passengers. We were given blankets and pillows. The best thing was the ground staff getting rude after all passengers complaining. They were basically saying we should get stuffed since we were booked for a flight next day same day. This is shameful! Needless to say that I will not fly this airline again!"
Pros: "That I made it to Dublin"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to aircraft issues making us 2 hours late for vacation. THIS IS MY HARD EARNED MONEY! I literally put blood, sweat and many many tears into this trip. The flight attendant was so rude on this trip. It was like she was absolutely offended by my presence. I barely even spoke to her except to make sure of my vegetarian tray to which I got the nasty reply "You'll have to wait because I don't have it with me now". If I wasn't so focused on sleeping as much as I could I would have written her name down. No complimentary cocktails for Preferred Seating? Seriously? What did I upgrade for exactly? Literally four inches of space? Late, rude, money sucking industry who holds no accountability for wrong doings. Don't get into the Health Industry.. you'll kill people with this flippant attitude. Bleh.. I doubt I'll fly with Delta again. The thought of having to do so turns my stomach."
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."
Pros: "On my ticket it clearly indicate that I am entitled to 2 check in baggage. Delta completely refused to honor this. They said am only entitled 1 piece, and therefore I have to pay for the other luggage. I was forced to borough money from someone at the airport just so that I could board the flight."
Cons: "I am asking that my money be refunded. And next time delta should honor and respect agreements. And be more professional"
Pros: "WiFi, good flight attendants"
Cons: "Would like to see Direct TV along with Delta Suite so can watch live TV"
Cons: "Almost everything"
Cons: "The WORST experience of my life. My flight was delayed 12 hours overnight due to "weather" and since it was reportedly because of uncontrollable weather delta didn't have to do anything for me so I slept in the JFK airport overnight, they wouldn't even give a $59 pass to their sky miles club for the afternoon. It felt like an easy excuse so they wouldn't have to do anything since there were other airlines still flying out of JFK and to go CLE before my rescheduled flight which makes me believe it wasn't all weather. Since the flight was delayed 12 hours instead of being cancelled they wouldn't let me switch to a different airline either. Then, in the morning when it was rescheduled to it was again delayed because they first couldn't find a captain and then couldn't find a fort mate. We finally took off and arrived in Cleveland only to wait another 30 minutes for a gate and a ground crew that they couldn't find. I will never fly delta again."
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..."
Cons: "It was Delta not Virgin"
Pros: "Overall.. It was Ok exept for the boarding experience described bellow."
Cons: "I bought the tickets through a third party website. Therefore, our seats were not assigned until the last minute, and once they were assigned, they were published in a screen with our initials. This practice was discriminatory and violateed our rights for privacy, We even felt that it could put our security in risk. I believe that one thing is not to allow clients to choose seats in advace because they bought the ticket through a third party website, and another thing is to discriminate an treat those clients as "second class" people. When I asked the person in the counter for the reasons behind this practice, she could only say it was Delta's policy to do it that way. In that sense I was very surprised with the practice because i bought an Airfrance ticket (not a Delta one) and I had travelled before in both airlines (Airfrance and Delta) and I had never experienced a situation like the one described. I strongly believe that Delta needs to review this practice."
Didn’t get to go as David is in the hospital. Unexpected emergency but not covid. Couldn’t get refund because we were on reduced fare without insurance. He is still hospitalized.
Pros: "Everything was well executed; friendly staff, clean plane, good entertainment options"
Cons: "My seat was hard and worn out."
Pros: "The seats are closer together - by my measurement 10 in between the back of the sone in front of me and my armrest. Luggage is checked luggage is $25; on my flight to Minneapolis, my luggage was lost for 30 hrs and wet on the inside when my daughter picked it up the next afternoon. It was not raining when our flight took off from NYC. The seats seem thinner on the cushion and if someone puts their seat in front of you, even slightly, it is very cramped. The flight was about 1/2 hour late taking off with what I counted as at least 10 planes ahead of us - most domestic - SW, other SunCountry and Delta. I have flown Sun Country periodically for the last 10 years. Now, I am done for all the reasons listed above. I have flown on other airlines this year and other than Alaska this was the least comfortable - actually it occured to me in an emergency it would have been very difficult to get out of my row. I understand this is a business - just not interested in buying from it."
Cons: "On July 7th, I was flying from JFK to MSP and then from MSP to PDX. Somewhere on the way, Sun Country Airlines lost my bag and they don't seem to have any idea where it might be. I was forced to spend my entire vacation without my bag. It's been 16 days, we called the baggage services office several times, wrote e-mails, even talked to someone in person in the MSP office and yet nobody's able to help. All we got were promises for a call back about the status of the claim, but nobody ever calls or responds to e-mails. I'm extremely disappointed and will call DOT and FAA if I don't get a response very soon."
Pros: "Desk staff member very helpful When departures was busy more staff were called immediately"
Cons: "Difficult to navigate online payment for extra baggage. Inconsistency about carry on sizes We paid for extra leg room in an exit row and we're given a very brief safety talk while 2 others asked to sit in an exit row and were given no instructions"
Pros: "I liked the crew and the fact that I could reserve a seat. I also like that they use terminal A in the DEN airport and terminal 2 at MSP."
Cons: "The legroom was none existent, my seat was hard as rock, and it did not recline. Also, aisle seats have smaller under seat space than the other seats."
Pros: "No food nor entertainment, thus low ratings in those areas. You could buy snacks but I brought a granola bar to go with complimentary coffee, which was good. Hated paying extra for checked bag and seat reservations. Added $58 to fare but it was cheap."
Cons: "On time."
Cons: "Sun Country should warn the average family and business traveler if they intend to cater to drunk 20/30 yr old adults on the first leg of their Florida vacation. Instead, 2 of the flight attendants joined in the loud chants and cheers. The flight attendants attitude was disappointing, and unprofessional. Their motto should be "Party Plane". About 12 loud and obnoxious party goers made it a miserable flight. One flight attendant asked them to quiet down. Two flight attendants joined in with the partying and yelled and chanted along with them. One flight attendant ignored the situation."
Pros: "The plane was actually a bit early in leaving which was nice."
Cons: "Could see baggage handlers throwing items on the conveyer belt. Always an issue to me. Like most flights these days, the seats were cramped but not as bad as others."
Pros: "Mediocrity is really the aim of an airline this tier, correct?"
Cons: "The hour delay, on top of an already 3-hour layover, in a terminal that wasn't even connected to the rest of the airport. The least you could do in a situation like this offer complimentary snacks to make up for it."
Pros: "Lots of room and I had an exit row. The staff was friendly."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly"
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "Don’t know yet"
Cons: "Flight Attendant skipped our row when offering drinks. No wifi, no entertainment, no snacks. Paid $25 to check one small bag."
Pros: "leg space OK"
Cons: "we were moved to a different gate for boarding. Then the flight ahead of ours had mechanical problems and we were informed of a 1 hour delay. Then we were moved back to our original gate. There were some elderly folks who were quite confused and other passengers had to help them understand the changes."
Pros: "Friendliness, clean aircrafts, leather seats, larger seats, tray tables, on time, willingness of ticketing agents to move your seat"
Cons: "No snacks (free), must pay for a seat"
Pros: "As to be expected, the cabin was crowded. The flight attendants were great and the service superb."
Cons: "There was a three hour delay, perhaps due to weather. The late plane arrived, as expected, at 1 pm, with a departure time of 1:40 pm. Including a needed ten minute de-icing procedure, we actually took-off at 2:30 pm. I never found out what caused the three hour delay."
Pros: "The way they treat the passengers with care."
Cons: "there was no entertainer Chennel"
Pros: "friendly fast and efficient!"
Cons: "Sitting in the back of the plane!"
Pros: "Friendly attendants and an on time departure. Flying terminal 2 in Minneapolis is easy and much less crowded."
Cons: "Flight was an hour late. Unprofessional staff."
Cons: "They wouldn't let me on the plane. See about"
Pros: "Direct flight at a great price."
Pros: "Always a pleasure to fly Sun Country"
Cons: "I was one of the last ones to check in on a flight I had already purchased a ticket for in economy seats but had to pay $15 extra at check in for an economy seat. Paying extra should be if I want to upgrade a seat and not for a seat in an area that I already paid for. This was definitely not an upgraded seat. I will avoid flying Sun Country in the future."
Pros: "2nd leg of flight... Again, Everything was great, no complaints. The roomy, leather seats made the 21/2 hr flight easy. The crew was very respectful and professional. The way flying is suppose to be. Thank you. John"
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "I always have a good experience on Sun Country."
Cons: "small seats and when we go into the air there were plenty of seats to spread out. The crew should have announced that it would okay to disberse."
Pros: "Great service amd friendly"
Pros: "Flight went on time, the price was great, Appreciated the complimentary beverage, The crew was nice"
Pros: "Quick smooth flight with professional service, would recommend."
Cons: "It was impossible to find a dog carrier that was up to your standards. I ended up settling for something last minute. It would be nice if pet standards were more clearly identifiable."
Pros: "courteous staff"
Cons: "Delayed due to weather. Not much to do there."
Pros: "Great price Easy reservation to make Well organized at the gate and with boarding On time"
Cons: "I did not find that I had any input as to seat selection"
Pros: "Flight was better then expected."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Helpful. Accommodating."
Pros: "The smooth boarding and friendly flight attendants"
Pros: "would absolutely fly Sun Country again! Clean plane. on time. last minute flight was an awesome price!!"
Pros: "Nice flight attendants."
Cons: "The flight was about an hour late taking off and boarding was interrupted part way through the process so there were some people sitting in the plane for all this time and some people sitting inside the airport boarding area for all this time. No explanation whatsoever was given about what was going on. The aisles on the plane were so narrow that I could just barely roll my carry-on bag down it. The head of the guy sitting in front of me was almost in my lap. I couldn't even lower my tray table all the way down to a flat position to set my beverage upon because his seat was so close to mine. When the flight was almost to its destination, we had to circle the airport for awhile because Obama was landing at this time too. We were never told of this possibility until it actually happened. Why not ? We arrived about an hour and a half later than our scheduled time. With all these inconveniences to us, absolutely nothing complimentary was given to us passengers to make up for their incompetence and how our travel plans may have been disrupted. This was a bad experience and my last with Sun Country."
Pros: "Easy check-in at ticketing."
Pros: "Thank you, SunCountry. This was our first time on your airline and I could not have been more impressed. The process was smooth, simple and extremely timely. Also appreciate the allowance of a carry on at no extra cost. The staff was pleasant and kind. We really enjoyed our experience."
Cons: "Didn't get to Denver via Sun Country, please see previous."
Cons: "Because we booked through a third party , kayak, we could not pre-check in online"
Cons: "We never got off the ground because of mechanical problem. I was sent back to the terminal where I waited in line for 2.5 hours. Finally SC put me on a different airline on a flight that left 12 hours later. No compensation for food or other costs incurred as a result of this problem. I understand that things don't always go right but it is important to provide good customer service on those occasions. SC failed me."
Pros: "The aircraft was convenient"
Cons: "The flight was delayed for an hour and then the bagging claim took too much time so I missed my bus."
Pros: "Everything about the experience was good. The airplane was comfortable and clean."
Pros: "As a tall person I was very pleased that there was enough leg room for my legs to be comfortable. Not only that but the flight left even before it was suppose to, which is also very nice."
Cons: "The food wasn't free, but that was expected."
Two meals were served in the First class during 9hr long flight! Great for domestic!!! Mai Tai drink was excellent!
Did not see any way to order a vegan meal during the ticket purchase or checkin process. There were no vegan meal options offered on the plane making the trip a long hungry one. Other than that, the crew was very good and the flight was very smooth and on time.
The plane was SO hot and we waiting 30 min for one passenger to get on. Sweating. Then the plane never cooled off because it got SO hot waiting.
It left on time and arrived a few minutes early. The whole process of checking in, seating (got my upgrade thankfully!), and the meals (superb multi-grain healthy salad) were great. It arrived on time (actually a few minutes early). American continue to keep up its promise of customer service. I love being part of the American traveller family.
I didn’t like that they keep changing stuff of the trip, like the flight it self from Guayaquil to Nyc i did a stupid scale to chicago, and one dat before my return trip they change the bag polite
We get late flying from JFJ and we missed the conection in London.
With all the service cutbacks, flying is not a joyous experience anymore.
Cons: "Good flight"
Pros: "Dinner and boarding"
Cons: "Seats, noise and kids running, walking and CRAWLING in the aisles and lack of wifi and entertainment that I can choose, Also, the bathrooms ran out of paper and the crew was not attentive. They didn't do anything about the kids disruptive behavior and extremely load talking (reciting abc and counting). I asked if they could talk to the parents and they said no, the beverage service was not good as I couldn't get more water and the seats were awful! Why wasnt the wifi working? even if it worked I'd have to purchase it even tho it was an international flight. I will not fly American Airlines again!"
Cons: "Ran out of food that I like"
Cons: "I hate Americans boarding process"
Cons: "The sound on the entertainment system in my seat didn't work well. Also, the flight was really late getting in to Denver."
Pros: "We took off and landed safely."
Cons: "Felt very low budget and cramped."
Pros: "arrival to the destination"
Cons: "booking through kayak was a nightmare. they serve no purpose othan than to collect a fee and add zero value and provide no support after the transaction. it is pointless to use this service as no one at Kayak can help you after the purchase, and we all know airlines are useless when it comes fo customer service. never again! american airlines was even worse with their customer service when trying to get seat selections preserved when the airline was updated from British to American airlines. American airlines lied over the phone and was even more rude in person. JOKE"
Pros: "Despite getting no updates, our flight itinerary was changed from a 3.30pm flight to a 9.20pm flight. Unfortunately this was after landing from Milan at 1.30 with two small children so we had already had a very long day. We absolutely never would have booked this flight itinerary had we known of the change."
Cons: "I am beyond stunned that our flight itinerary was changed from 3.30pm to 9.20pm with no notification. This is absolutely unreasonable and inexcusable made even worse that we had already had a very long journey from Milan to JFK with two small children. Evidently the issue was that we booked via a 3rd party off the kayak site and not directly with British airways. When American airways changed the flight from 3.30 to 3.25, the 3rd party company failed to file for our updated itinerary so British air/American air bumped us to the next flight at 9.20pm. We have long been loyal to kayak feeling it provides the best breadth of options and good pricing. Now we may use kayak to see all the options but I can’t booking directly with kayak anymore after this complete disaster. We ended up renting a car and driving from jfk to Boston, getting home 23 hours after our journey had started, stressed, beyond exhausted and now have to return the rental car. Thanks kayak."
Pros: "Veggie Asian meal was great - curry."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Seven hours siting in a fridge. Asked stewardess to turn it up. She didn't."
Pros: "The plane took off and landed on time. Because airlines have so games their system by setting expectations of on time arrival so low that it is nearly impossible to not exceed them."
Cons: "The plane was so old the overhead lights didn’t work in our section (who failed to check that??). The overhead bins fell open at landing and things almost fell on people’s heads. There was subpar entertainment options that hadn’t been updated since at least the 90s, which was made even less acceptable since it was literally the only option for entertainment on a 7+ hour flight when none of the overhead lights worked. For a ticket that cost more than $1200, the failure of the airline on nearly all levels to provide standard services was completely unacceptable."
Pros: "I needed special assistance due to limit of mobility and I have been refused assistance twice"
Cons: "On the top of that my luggage was damaged"
Pros: "Went on time and looked after very well"
Cons: "Going over leg room, a bit tight"
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Bag checkin had already been done online but did it again in terminal, weigh in lady not helpful or friendly, quite abrupt. Onboard seating cramped and worse when front seats were reclined."
Pros: "Smooth flight, got in early."
Cons: "Breakfast was average. Could do better"
Pros: "Absolutely no part of the flight was comfortable or enjoyable."
Cons: "The plane itself was clearly an older model, lacking many amenities I’ve come to expect flying coach. The overhead compartments were too small for larger carryon luggage, and no one on the crew alerted passengers to this. Thus, many passengers had to go against the traffic of those still boarding to find space for luggage. My seat was at the back of the plane so I had to spend close to 15 extra minutes walking back to the front against boarding passengers to find a place to put my luggage. A simple warning from the crew when I boarded would have prevented mine and many others unnecessary trouble simply boarding. During a very turbulent flight, the captain nor the crew made any announcements about turbulence, our safety, or our progress. Also during the flight, one of the flight attendants got into an awkward verbal spat with one of the passengers. Completely unprofessional and bothersome. Additionally, I had fallen asleep when dinner was being first served, but woke up before it was finished. A flight attendant approached me and asked if I’d like a dinner to which I replied “Yes”. The flight attendant never returned with a dinner for me, thus I did not eat the dinner, which I had paid for. Lastly, and perhaps most disturbing, was what transpired when a passenger had a medical emergency. With no warning, all of the airplane lights turned on and a loud “CODE RED” was announced over the sound system. Imagine being a sleeping passenger like myself, during a very turbulent flight, to be suddenly awoken to bright lights and a CODE RED shouted loudly over the PA. I’m not overexaggerating when I say that I was preparing for the worst. A truly terrifying moment that I am certain was shared with many others on board. To make matters even worse, as a flight attendant rushed to find a first aid kit (which she had trouble finding) she opened up the compartment over my partners seat and dropped a passengers ipad on her head. The flight attendant did return to apologize, but it was little consolation compared to the stress and panic the crew created. I have flown many times, and this was easily the worst flight of my life. American Airlines should be ashamed of the conditions they put their passengers in and they have lost two customers for good."
Cons: "We left two hours after scheduled departure bc 1) the plane was late from prior flight and had to be cleaned, 2) engine check delayed the flight, 3) strong winds forced the airport (JFK) to use only one runway for departures and so on top of our plane delays we were delayed an extra half hour bc of airplane traffic. No entertainment onboard, meaning no screen on back of seat in front for movies, tv shows, etc. Food options were poor, especially breakfast (too much sugar content in all contents of “continental breakfast” pack."
Pros: "The Flight Crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Business class, Boeing 767-300 The seating configuration was 1/2/1 I would give these seats on a scale from 1 to 10 a 5, this was a very basic B/C seat, without a TV screen integrated to the seat in front of you, instead the flight crew hand out individual passenger entertainment systems, that are a pain to deal with and get in the way of everything your trying to do (ie eat, work, sleep.) I’m only 5’9 and I found when the seat was in the bed mode, the seat slopped down very slightly, and your feet would end up underneath the side table to the row of seats in front of you. As i wear a size 13 shoe, i found that space to be rather cramped especially for my feet."
Cons: "the drink service came through pretty late in the flight. i asked for hot tea. a few minutes later i was provided with extremely hot tea. about 10 minutes later it was a temperature i could tolerate drinking. about 1/3 through the drink i was required to throw away my drink because we were preparing for landing. i understand that, fine. bad timing. it’s just a drink. what was unsatisfactory is that the attendant rudely commented “you have to give us your drink. it’s not that long of a flight.” the comment made me feel like i had done something wrong even though i had just been drinking my tea as soon as it was at a drinkable temperature. i was not impressed with the attendant. also, there weren’t any biscotti cookies."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and nice, boarding was calm, we got there much earlier than anticipated."
Cons: "1) Biggest complaint is not about the actual flight we were on, but the one we missed, who left the gate Early, even though they knew we had landed and other people from our BCN to JFK flight made it. EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING, esp since all other flights to DC out of JFK were cancelled. 2) We were on the last row of the plane so our seats didn’t recline. Annoying at best bc the flight was so short, but would have been nice since we had been traveling for 18 hours by that point (because of the late flight, missed connection, cancelled JFK flights, etc)."
Cons: "The e-ticket did not include the terminal information. As it was an Iberia flight I went to the terminal 7 where Iberia operates. However, after waiting on line when I got to the counter the attendant informed me that the flight was operated by American Airlines and I had to go to terminal 8. I ran to terminal 8 but by the time I got to the check in it was 6:15 and they said they said the check-in for the flight at 7(which was actually at 6:55pm) was closed for check-in. I was lucky enough that there was another Iberia flight (this one from terminal 7) st 8:30pm and the supervisor was able to find me a spot in that flight."
Cons: "The flight I booked was misrepresented. I thought I was booking a BA flight only to find it was American Airlines. This changed the terminal I was to go to and the gate in which our Italian non-english speaking driver was to meet us at. This impacted seating selection, as well. Was forced to buy a premium seat when I realized the seating chart did not appear when I purchased the tickets. Also, flight was three hours late upon arrival. I understand safety is paramount and am grateful we eventually were able to find another plane, but it begs to speculate if things would have been smoother on a BA plane."
Pros: "Crew updates during a technical issue investigation."
Cons: "This plane is very small for an international flight, and it does not have the proper entertainment system for long flights. To top it off, the plane was very smelly; I got a headache because of it. We also had to return to the gate due to a technical issue and ended up leaving almost two hours late, which defeated the purpose of picking this flight over the rest as it was the one that was supposed to land in Milan the earliest. I will be careful next time I pick a flight to check what kind of airplane they're using. My assumption that international flights have the best airplanes seems to be wrong :(."
Pros: "I arrived at my destination at least! Good crew and decent food but that’s the least I can expect from an 8 hour flight."
Cons: "Very old plane. Had the screens every 4-5 aisles. No control over the entertainment. Very uncomfortable seats, but so are almost every other airlines. The worst part about this flight was that I traveled with my girlfriend and when I went to check in, 24 hours before, there were only single seats left and there were so many open seats together that were considered “preferred” and had to pay $80 for just one “preferred” seat just so we can sit together on an 8 hour long flight. The seat didn’t even have any extra legroom or anything, it was a normal seat. American Airlines is just trying to squeeze money out of anything they can."
Pros: "Plane and staff were great. Very easy boarding process and we landed early in Dublin airport after an hour delayed take off. Food and staff service was very good, no complaints."
Cons: "No idea how they messed up the take off and landing times so greatly. left an hour late and arrived an hour early. No personal entertainment screen and plugs were not working."
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "Crew was exceptionally lovely through delay except for lead attendant who spoke down to attendants and passengers alike (would refer to me in third person in front of me--asking attendant condescendingly "why is he here?"). terrible sense of service, spoke like I was a grade school kid in her class. Gate agent gave me last minute seat change which was very cool of her"
Cons: "Plane is terribly old, has ashtrays and audio channels for entertainment. More importantly, mechanical failures at and after gate. Total delay of over 2 hours. My girlfriend flew this same plane and had even longer delays plus needed to divert In flight and turn around and land in heathrow on a mxp-jfk route (they were over the Atlantic). Problems continue for me 2 months later on this route and as a pattern it's incredibly unsettling. I'm questioning whether taking the return flight on a plane that's clearly begging to be retired"
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."
Cons: "I bought travel insurance as I do with any trip. I have a complicated family emergency that forced me to call off the trip. Being that I bought trip insurance, I felt good. Well turns out they make you jump through so many hoops that your travel insurance fee is useless. I sent a letter to Allianz (the company that handles the travel insurance) and blasted them for their insensitivity in a difficult time. Going forward, I will not be purchasing travel insurance in the future. It may sound irrational but if you think about it, travel insurance is the tax on gullible people. You hear travel insurance and one assumes that if you spend the extra money on the insurance and something comes up, you can at least get much of your money back. Don't count on it! It's a 1/1000 chance they will do the right thing so the odds are not in people's favor. If you want to be smart, use the money you would have spent on travel insurance on some pre flight cocktails at the airport bar. Air travel is hellish enough without scams like Allianz!"
Pros: "Boarding was prompt, flight attendants polite and accommodating."
Cons: "If I am in business class and platinum status, why can't I use the lounge - which is only available to Platinum status going to LA or SF, Latin America but not to Cancun. American Airlines needs to change this policy."
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"
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: "Our flight was 3 + hours behind schedule. We didn't get to take off until around 11:30pm when our flight was supposed to take off at 7:05pm. I have missed my itinerary and cruise trip with family members. Now I have to wait 2 days to catch a cruise and reunite with my family in Italy. It's not fear that the airline don't take consideration for this kind of situation. We understand that Things happens and the airline takes precautions to make sure everything is okay before take off. However, I'm very frustrated and disappointed."
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"
Cons: "Cancelled flight due to multiple mechanical malfunctions that should have been checked previous to boarding. Held on the plane for 4 hours, another 4 hours in terminal of the closed airport once allowed to deplane, no communication, no food or water, put up in a hotel an hour and half away despite this being NYC, terrible customer service, no compensation, unable to get tofinal destination earlier than 24 hours later missed events in final destination overall financial and personal losses due to the inadequacy of the airline."
Cons: "We boarded on time but were kept waiting 2 hours on the runway The entertainment system was broken so no screens worked the whole flight! Terrible,"
Cons: "Watched a very weird interaction between Muslim (with a hajib) women with a kiddo and desk crew. She wanted to sit next to her child on the flight and needed to switch seats to be able to. Woman was very gracious and understanding that she was asking for an accommodation. Ends up her flight to Philly had been moved to a different gate after they had found a volunteer to switch seats. Volunteer was totally unfazed but Desk crew made it seem as tho the Muslim mom was at fault for the time and trouble they had had to go through to accommodate her. She apologized profusely and was very appreciative for the trouble evernote had gone to for her. . As she walked away the crew looked at each other and shook their heads. Pretty crummy way to treat customers!"
Cons: "I can't rate it because they canceled my entire itinerary without so much as an email. I did not take my flight to Wilmington via my original flight. I had to book another flight because the change fees were too expensive. I did not know that my return flight to Denver had been canceled until I was checking in a few hours before my flight. I was told my ticket had no value. Awesome! It really stings that I then had to book a new return flight, and because I am a teacher who makes about $23,000 a year, I had to book the cheapest flight, which was with American. I do not plan on giving them any of my hard-earned money in the future if I can help it."
Cons: "Small plane, 6 seats per row, no individual entertainment. Not comfortable for a 7 hour trip."
Cons: "Delayed 1 hour because crew announced there was a discrepancy between # passengers boarding central records. Flight crew didn't do anything to comfort passengers during this. Captain made one announcement about turbulence once at the beginning but nothing else for 1/2 hour or longer long turbulence period. Crew took away tray without asking. Ran out of water. Doors did not open for quite awhile after docking but crew said nothing. Seats so small one had to keep elbows glued to body to eat without touching neighbors. Felt like cattle being driven to slaughter. Min"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and kept to schedule."
Cons: "AA staff at JFK airport were rude and unhelpful. Staff onboard the flight were excellent."
Cons: "Had to board three times, two different planes. I understand mechanical problems, but 3 hours later, and on another plane, the captain starts making stuff up, saying that the only reason we hadn't moved in the last hour was because people were using the bathroom, then something about having to deplane because the plane couldn't back up with us on it because of some sensor? And then, surprise ! All of the sudden they noticed there was an issue with his and some of the crews' hours and we had to wait till they could locate more crew. But they gave us each a 1/3 glass of water and later a $12 food voucher which didn't even cover a meal and beverage. Whoop-de-do. 7 hours later we finally boarded for the third and last time. The crew on the other hand stayed professional and friendly."
Pros: "The crew were beyond excellent and tried to help with the seats. They were also very apologetic for the seat issue."
Cons: "Our seats had no power and couldn't adjust. The crew manually did it for us but we never got it to go close to flat. We were on an old 757 which is such an embarrassing product for AA compared to the new or refurbished planes."
Pros: "The Boeing 777 200 was refurbished with the new business class pods"
Cons: "Modern cabin space"
