Cons: "This Business-class seat is a proper rip-off. The only difference from Economy is the in-between seat is not used. No extra leg room whatsoever. Economy from Honolulu to Los Angeles I had more leg room then this one. Unacceptable response from the crew: "that's how it's been the last years"."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "I was surprised that BA charges for drinks like water. Flight from London to Warsaw is an international Flight after all. I may understand that food is not served but to pay for water is not a right thing to do. I asked the crew about this and I was told that bc other airlines charge for drinks/ food, BA also ask passengers for money. I have not had to pay for my drink like water on any other flight. I fly with all big airlines like American, Delta, Lufthansa, LOT, etc"

I had to wait for the next flight enroute to Delhi rather than hyderabad directly. I had to wait for more than 10 Hrs at LHR and Delhi. There was heavy delay to reach my destination."
Cons: "Non-issue of boarding pass from LHR to Hyderabad at SAT airport USA. Callous attitude of the guy who didn't help me in getting me the boarding pass at LHR.

Cons: "We missed our connection and british had booked us automatically on the next available flight which was helpful. However--- we paid to pick our seats and we got stuck in both middle seats. I also got skipped on the first round of beverage service. The entire crew was congregated in the middle part and when they finally made their way back to the cabin for trash I asked the flight attendant if I could please get a beverage as I was skipped. He said yes let me gather this trash and ill be back. He never returned. Then everyone was served their meals and I then was also skipped. Flight crew congregated again in the middle and my sister and I had to wave our hands up in the air to grab anyone's attention so I could get my meal. At that point they were out of the vegetarian option and I got a small oh we didn't mean to skip you comment. Pretty disappointed with this flight."

Pros: "Arrived safe"

When I arrived to the airport for checking in they told me the plane was full and my preferred seat is not available, dissappointed in British airway, also the seats are so close together no space to move my legs and am barely 5 feet tall. Would not fly with this airline anymore"
Pros: "How short the flight was and the fact that I had an empty seat next to me."
Pros: "All thing good"
Cons: "Every thing excelent I like thanks"
Cons: "The BA flights I flew on were not new. Lie flat seat is not Best in the class. The movie collection is not uptodate. British airways in flight service levels are relatively inferior quality. The cabin and toilets were not spick-and-span. Toilets were not kept clean from time to time. The toileterries provided are not high in desirability quotient and can be improved in at least one leg of the international flights."

Cons: "They cancelled our flight AFTER we checked in!!! We felt stranded in Barcelóna."

Pros: "The plane take off and landing were great. The cabin crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing as announcements were hard to hear about zones. The plane was old and run down. The top of my arm rest had a plastic cover that kept falling off. There was no entertainment on the plane. It was a 2 hour flight from Madrid to London and we didn't not get any refreshments for free. I would at least expect a drink and pretzels as that's standard everywhere else."
Cons: "1 hour delay on return journey on a packed flight, but at least that delay was in the airport and not sitting on a plane"

Cons: "Inadequate food. Requested diabetic meal and the bread was loaded with sugar"
Pros: "Up and down in all the right places and we were on time."
Cons: "Food was unimpressive to say the least. And the entertainment system was awful, the movie would frequently stop and was pixilated. Weird for a new 777."
Cons: "Everything. no one helped me with the upgrade no time due to poor customer service."
Pros: "First this flight wasn't operated nor flown byfinnair. We were delayed leaving Berlin, which made us delayed getting to London, they rescheduled us, delayed leaving London (we paid for direct route to Dallas, we were rerouted to Chicago), delayed getting into Chicago, missed flight to Dallas, had to stay in chicago overnight, delayed leaving Chicago, arrived in Dallas 23 hours after supposed to be home."
Cons: "That it wasn't even Finnair but that's how it was sold to us, that we paid for direct route, but we weee sent to another city and had more legs on flight."
Pros: "The crew were quite friendly and very helpful"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving and check-in could have been more organized"
Cons: "Some of the crew. Eapecially first class was slow and poor at communicating"
Cons: "Plane had to land in a different city due to inclement weather. Very disorganized process, huge traveling setback, never got my travel voucher."
Cons: "In flight entertainment was broken"
Cons: "Nothing that AA could do better. Both fellow passengers had body odor that was so bothersome. I could not even sleep, not eat because of their smell. Oh well, laugh when we can, right? Oh by the way, the Pilots of both planes I took for this DFW-ATL-DFW flights were awesome. Landings were so smooth, like butter"
Cons: "Phoenix airport is horrible for on time departures. Always."
Pros: "Crew was nice. Had no problems with my carry on."
Cons: "Paying for an assigned seat is ridiculous so my friend and I didn’t sit next to each other."
Cons: "Boarding process including changing terminals, going thru security is awful. This time I had ample of time to go Thru that long waiting process but last time I almost missed the flight. Heard from others the same issue. London Heathrow airport needs to come up with better solution before losing the"
Pros: "The fact that I got to my destination"
Cons: "Having air conditioning on an aircraft is critical on a hot summer day. Especially when a flight is delayed 2 hours on the tarmac! Miserable."
Pros: "on time departure offered a beverage and snack"
Cons: "we had to circle phila we had to wait for our gate"
Cons: "Too small of a plane for that long a flight. Cabin was too damn hot."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing. At least I made it to DC but what the f. They made us board late and then told us to inboard and blamed the weather when other planes where just leaving they couldn't tell us they didn't want to work anymore and then 6 hours after we were able to board. Really bad."
Cons: "They should have offered food vouchers instead of the bad junk food they offered which wasn't enough to feed all the passengers plus the supposedly delay because of the weather was low when you could see planes leaving every half an hour."
Cons: "Horrible experience with American Airlines staff while boarding at Birmingham AL USA. Very unprofessional & RUDE..."
Pros: "They pulled out of the gate to have an “on time” departure only to make us sit on the runway for an hour. The flight attendants were incredibly rude to people asking questions."
Cons: "Offered us drinks... let us know what was going on .. answered questions. Basically, anything."
Pros: "I received the survey for this flight before we even boarded lol. People’s online boarding passes had expired. Noted that it was “due to weather” weather is totally clear, haven’t seen a flake of snow, it’s just cold."
Pros: "Nothing, this was a miserable flight."
Cons: "Gate at Philadelphia was tiny with not enough space for everyone on the plane, it was a 6 hour flight and no snacks beyond pretzels were available-not even for purchase. I'd just come off an 8 hour international flight where I was provided lunch, ice cream, a pot pie snack and frequent beverage service. Somehow as soon as you are flying domestic on a slightly shorter flight American Airlines thinks its okay to treat customers like garbage-nothing but some sad pretzels and 2 rounds of drink service was provided for a 6 hour flight. The seats were super uncomfortable with no head rest, no personal entertainment devices were provided, and there was no general entertainment for the whole plane-seriously I've never been so bored. I would have fallen asleep from boredom but the seat was too uncomfortable so I couldn't even do that. The plane landed in Seattle but sat without unloading passengers for 20 minutes because the gate crew wasn't ready. We didn't get our checked baggage for over an hour after landing. When asked, customer service reps said that the S gate was far from baggage claim-seriously I'm not sure how that is a reasonable excuse. Other airlines arrive into S gates and have timely baggage claim service. American Airlines has no standard for timely baggage claim service like other airlines (Alaska) so there were no repercussions for such late baggage service. We left the airport with our luggage over 90 minutes after the plane landed. The entire experience is just another example of American Airlines of why the terrorists won't even fly American Airlines. I was seriously disappointed to find out that the British Airways flights we booked were operated by American instead of BA crews. I seriously will never select this option (or fly American) again if I can help it."
Pros: "Easy on getting the boarding pass"
Cons: "Bit crowded, flight too full"
Cons: "1. The music played while boarding and deboarding was not relaxing. It made me anxious and irritable. 2. The food was absolutely poor. Taste, etc 3. Poor selection of movies, etc.. 4. Poor selection of music, especially the classical channel. Won't be flying American again if I can help it."
Pros: "Breakfast on GDL-DFW and movie"
Cons: "One hour delay on account of missing signatures from some mechanic according to the captain’s weak and shallow account of the facts. Flew with a 1st class upgrade to DFW and upon missing the connection to DSM (imputable to AA) I would have expected AA to have me await my later conection (3 hrs AA 2488) in the Admiral’s club especially after having paid for the upgrade. Instead, the bozo at the Admiral’s Club entrance in Terminal A A23 indicated that only Mexico City passengers were allowed into the Club even if as a GDL passenger I had a 1st class boarding pass. Poor and misguided management of the moment of truth on behalf of your employee with a 1 Million Miler customer. My experience recently with Delta and United has been with more open minded, customer centric and better trained airline staff. Disappointing and hope someone will read this and let me know that my note was heard. What is next?"
Pros: "The staff was impressive with how friendly and welcoming they were! Everything went smoothly and I am a happy passenger!"
Pros: "Not much here. The seats were ok, but the rest of the flight the airline was just poor."
Cons: "The airline is so outdated and behind the times of their competitors, their in that they don't have in flight entertainment unless you download their app and give them your email address. On top of that when I originally booked my flights, I had made sure to have 1.5 hr for a layover between my connecting flights. Well, they decided to move up my connector such that I had 25 minutes to run across 2 terminals. They only give you pretzels on the plane, and a single soda drink. They offer you "food bundles" but why do I want to pay $8 for a sandwich that costs $1 to make."
Pros: "The food and movies"
Cons: "The lack of communication while waiting to board about why plane was delayed even though it was already there. Service was ok, nothing stood out nor was extremely bad."
Cons: "Late departure. Sat on tarmac for 20 minutes"
Cons: "Late leaving Monterey. Other than that, fine trip"
Pros: "It was fine. Nothing extraordinary, just solid and fine"
Cons: "Nothing bad in particular. The passengers could've been more friendly, but that's not the airline's fault"
Pros: "Las pantallas en cada asiento con entretenimiento ideal para los niños u también los adultos y además de ofrecer variadas bebidas dieron un snack."
Pros: "Staff was friendly"
Cons: "There were no veg options for sandwiches and food ran out after boarding group 6."
Pros: "The flight was short and all went well."
Pros: "This airlines sucksI didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip"
Cons: "I didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip. Mainly, there was absolutely no entertainment except some overhead movie that no one wanted to watch. The plane was old and comfortable."
Pros: "On time, efficient loading and deplaning, attendants were fine."
Cons: "The plane is old and in need of retirement or renovation. Tin foil covered a broken bulkhead in first class. Lots of squeaking, overall very dated. Better than spirit but not to American Airlines standard."
Pros: "Flight arrived early"
Cons: "Flight attendants were short and condescending to multiple passengers and made everyone throw away bottled water and food given on the plane threatening that it would prompt search by the agriculture department during customs. Additionally, skipped rows for food service and trash pick up."
Pros: "Pretty much everything! Great service, staff was friendly, courteous, smooth trip."
Cons: "Not a thing!"
Pros: "Staff was fantastic. I was travelling with my 83 yr old mother and the counter staff couldn't have been more helpful. Very compassionate which was much appreciated. Really made a tough job much easier. I wish I had thought to get all their names. They made the trip...though others throughout the trip were just fantastic--including especially the wheelchair attendants."
Pros: "There was nothing that I liked."
Cons: "One half hour before boarding we learned there was a delay. Obviously, American Airlines knew way before this time of the delay. At 6:00 p.m we were told they were bringing another plane from the hanger. The plane showed up around 9:00 p.m ... must be a long trip from the hanger. Then we were told they are waiting on a rear flight crew from another flight. After getting the rear flight crew, we were told that the front flight crew "timed out" and they had to look for other pilots. Needles to say after arriving at West Palm Beach at 1:00 in the morning...about four hours late the passengers were all devastated. American could have orchestrated this so much better"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Flight attendant called cops on passenger sitting next to me to be escorted off the plane for no reason!"
Cons: "We boarded, sat on the plane for a while, backed up from the gate, then sat for a while longer. 3 hours later, we had to go back to the gate because we reached the legal limit they can hold us on the plane on the tarmac. Another hour and a half or so later, we finally took off for JFK. We missed our first connecting flight and the second connecting flight I was able to rebook."
Pros: "Baggage drop agent in Oakland excellent Great A319 w power outlets Thanks"
Cons: "The boarding was seemed unintelligent. Why would a passenger in a window seat have to wait until the other middle and aisle passengers board. I got on the plane and had to wait for the other two passengers get up and step into the aisle so I could take my window seat. I was in group 7 and apparently they were in a lower number group that was allowed to board before me."
Pros: "Free checked bag"
Cons: "2 hour delay No food to buy or drinks"
Pros: "Food and movies"
Cons: "The plane had mechanical problems and was rescheduled to a different flight"
Cons: "The only negative aspect of the three hopswas a couple of gate changes prior to boarding... one at Dallas and one at Charlotte and the could not have been much further apart, new gate from the original gate... but it made for a leg-stretcher during a long day of sitting"
Cons: "The food was awful. Fish was rubbery and smelled bad, eggs were a gloppy mess, everything was too salty."
Pros: "I did not like anything about the flight to be honest. Oh wait you did have cool club lights that were blue that tried to distract me from the fact that I had to take an American airlines flight."
Cons: "Holy moly. You know if you stopped charging extra money for checked baggage you wouldn't have a ridiculously annoying amount of customers with too many bags for overhead storage. Then you wouldn't have to threaten your customers to store their small bags under the seat. Then I would have room for my feet under the seat. When I would have been comfortable. I also wouldn't have to annoy my neighbor with trying to move and get comfortable. But instead the exact opposite happened and I'm offended you guys have America anywhere near your name."
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "It was a headache!"
Pros: "Pleasant travels. Small plane"
Cons: "Somewhat cramped. Very difficult getting seat assignment. Website confusing."
Cons: "The people were rude, the food was mediocre."
