awful from a to z

The plane was tiny and filled with very tall Icelandic residents. The crew were disinterested in the passengers. We got 8oz of water and a cereal bar for a 3.5 hour international flight.

Pros: "I was upgraded to first class because the flight was not full. So that was truly a blessing! And the service was great!"
Cons: "No WiFi."
Pros: "Good food (chicken)"
Cons: "Seating too tight"
Cons: "Some form of entertainment"
Cons: "For a major carrier in Europe we expected more. Be Be prepared to pay for food and even a drink on a domestic flight. Seats tiny barely any leg room. Crew members appeared to be having a bad day not many welcoming smiles. I guess if you had to budget just pay use one of the other carriers"
Pros: "I did not"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Ordered special meal, did not get it so did not eat. Cabin crew unfriendly. Old aircraft so could not hear the announcements. Screen did not work. Bags took ages to come out despite being priority. BA has definitely gone downhill."
Pros: "New planes, good food, professional crew."
Pros: "Can’t complain having a whole row for myself in such a long flight and amazing crew"
Pros: "Crew professionalism"

Pros: "On time, great entertainment, friendly crew, good food, complementary ice cream:)"
Cons: "Absolutely no leg room and I am regular woman passenger. It was really uncomfortable for the 2 tall young men to my left and right."
Pros: "The service was above average but not excellent - with a nearly three-hour delay but of no great concern to me."
Cons: "For some reason, my frequent flyer points went to a BA account that was established because I have a previous "Delayed Fight Claim" with BA. I specifically didn't make mention of this account when I set up my account with Expedia because I wanted the points rewarded to my Qantas Account as has my previous BA flights."
Pros: "it got there"
Cons: "how it got there"
Cons: "The flight to Heathrow was delayed by 2.30 hours while other flights to London was on time"
Pros: "Did not rate the food as we slept through the meal"
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Everything well. No issues"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They could not see our flight from London to dallas so they would not let us get on the plane in Zurich."
Pros: "Food, seats pretty good , movies offered some good choices much better than US carriers"
Cons: "Heathrow airport at 4:30 AM not fun at all"
Cons: "At security London Heathrow, it took 30 minutes for them to check 1 bag of ours! Almost didn't make the flight."
Pros: "Nice new plane, great staff, decent comfort"
Cons: "Boarding was slow - also such a fuss made about the difference of services in each class -"
Pros: "Service an excellence"
Cons: "no entertainment at all more significantly, no beverages at all? Flight attendants came through once with the beverage cart, but only asked the person at the end of our row if he wanted anything. He asked for juice assumed it would be complimentary but it wasn't. They offered to get him a water. The flight attendants did not offer me or the man next to me anything at all. Everyone knows that air travel is dehydrating - I can't believe BA doesn't give provide complimentary water and juice."
Cons: "You had to pay for everything and I do mean everything. Even a glass of water. There were no glasses unless you paid for a bottle. If I have a choice I won’t be flying British Airways again."
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"
Pros: "Fold-down head rests"
Cons: "No tuck box"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats not comfortable"
Pros: "When I traveled Lax to Denmark via London on July.13. At that time from London to Copenhagen crews only sale the food and drinks. My group tour customers were thirsty and they had to take some pills. so they asked just cup of water, but the crews did not provide even a cup of water . That time was dinner time so every people was so hungry too. And also yesterday my another tour customer was so hungry. I understand you not served food at time. but just serve them a snack or juice . Because time jet lag make them more tired and hungry. I was worked at the Korean air line before, so I understand the stewardess should do only follow the regulations. But just serve some water to hungry and tired passengers."

Pros: "Great service & crew. Food good for aircraft food"
Cons: "Half hour delay but no big deal actually. Could have done with more leg room, but again flight was e cellent price"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and helpful. My only complaint is the turbulence, but there's nothing hat can be done about that."
Pros: "Comfortable seats, good movie selection, free wine with meal"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly, poor service, terrible breakfast."
Cons: "We missed our connection flight, to make things worst, we had to wait 3 1/2 hours standing in line just to speak a British airways staff because many of the desks were empty and half the desks were catering to first class and business class passengers"
Cons: "So, the flight to Frankfurt never happened because of whatever happened with British Airways on 05/27/2017. We waited without information in the airport for over 6 hours and then were told to exit after which it took another 3 to 4 hours to get out of the airport. We were told to find a hotel with no help or voucher - nothing was showing available under $1000 a night, save our receipts for any food we might have, rebook our flight. As we were leaving the airport, we were given water, nothing before that. We received information as we were leaving the airport about our rights for recompense. Fortunately, a Heathrow staff member helped us with finding a hotel that cost about $400. We never were able to get to Frankfurt to see our family there and had to book train tickets to Paris to meet our hotel reservation there two days later. It was a bad situation, handled in a way that caused confusion, fear and unhealthy situations of standing for long periods and I will not be doing business with British Airways in future."
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."
Pros: "Crew, food, entertainment all good. USB charging a nice touch"
Cons: "We purchased two tickets together but were assigned seats far apart. We couldn't check in using on-line app. It wanted Visa information for USA travel even though we are US citizens, all info was entered into our flight, and we had already flown the outbound leg. The partner airline for the first leg checked us in, noted that our seats were separate and said they unable to change it. We called BA customer service - they were unable to change our seats. On arrival at Heathrow there was a huge wait at the BA processing center, when we finally presented our boarding passes and asked for a change the representative told us there was no time and we should run to our gate. I sat next to two people traveling solo so sitting together was obviously no problem Seating people on a combined booking separately, and never finding a solution other than "run to your gate, we are really behind" is verging on terrible customer service."
Pros: "The crew were quite friendly and very helpful"
Cons: "Flight was late leaving and check-in could have been more organized"
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "We booked World plus, extra money, and they put us in the last row against wall where the seats hardly recline. I complained but we were well into our flight when we told the stewardess she did not get back to us regarding changing seats. She came back about 20 minutes laterwith unacceptable seats,far from our overhead and we could not sit together. We declined. My husband had to board early because his foot was in a special brace after recent surgery. They could only move him to a center seat where he would hae to risk someone stepping on his foot. We are 70 years old.We had one small meal on an 8.5 hour flight."
Pros: "Didnt travel"
Cons: "Because of BA problems on online checking I couldn't get seats reserved as soon as online checkin opened. No one could helped me by phone either. I had to do it at the airport. By then, obviously, only the worst seats were available. Do they care? Obviously no. I'm the one stuck in the worst seats for 8:30h. And that happened both ways in the trip. All they would say is "I'm sorry, I can't help you at this time". As that would improve my flying experience. If the problem was on their side, they should definitely accomodate me."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "BA initiated New cabin service in January on their intra European service. Not "cut rate" airline fares, but a "cut rate" airline service. 3.5 hour flight and they now even impose a charge for a drink of water. No complimentary amenities at all. A fee now for even water? Not what I expected from BA."
Pros: "The actuall flight was not bad."
Cons: "Unable to check in online and pay for extra bags. As a result i paid more at the airport. I even showed the error to the agent and she had an i dont care attitude. Check in opened an hour late. Not what i expected"
Pros: "There weren't too many people on this flight so we were able to use the extra seat in our row. The flight attendants were very nice."
Pros: "entertainment was great and the staff was very friendly"

The service on board was wonderful.

Pros: "The flight wasn't crowded so I had a whole row of seats to myself."
Cons: "A less starchy/high carbohydrate meal. More green veg."
Pros: "It was on time."
Cons: "Seats were impossibly small. Family in front of us kept removing their face masks. Wife pulled hers down to take selfies every few minutes and husband consistently wore his below his nose. Flight attendant asked him once to pull it up and he did, only to pull it down again a few minutes later."
Pros: "Boarding was good"
Cons: "Seats are abhorring, No space for knees. Horrible food."
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and quick with service."
Cons: "There was no in-flight entertainment! This is ridiculous for an overnight, international flight."
Cons: "the entertainment on the app didn’t work. and there was no seat back tv things. there was a movie playing in the aisle of the airplane. there was no way to charge any devices while our domestic flight had the tvs on the back of the seats and international plugs for every seat"
Pros: "Sears are still too narrow."
Cons: "I wish I could of finished my movie !!!"
Pros: "Crew was professional."
Cons: "AA is rated next to last in being on time. It shows. Seats were uncomfortable. At least the interactive screen in the seat back worked well, and was informative."
Cons: "I had little leg room"
Pros: "The crew was good given the challenges of a delayed flight"
Cons: "They could have delivered on the most important aspect on-time arrival. I know that a mechanical issue delays such as tires however ongoing maintenance should prevent these delays. Your failure to deliver on your promise impacted my ability to deliver on mine."
Pros: "More space in these seats than in other flights I’ve taken"
Cons: "Delayed due to no available gate attendant. Limited ground crew."
Pros: "Flight was canceled after six hours of waiting"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "We missed our flight to Orlando because we were delayed in London. The staff couldn't help when I requested to see the full text contract as stated on back of the boarding pass. Over three hours late to Orlando. Even in Orlando people couldn't help us find the long term parking shuttle and wind up taking a whole hour tour of Orlando airport."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our honeymoon started off with American airlines delaying us by 3 hours in Miami causing us to miss our flight to Iceland and now we are stuck in Dallas paying out of pocket for everything because American does not reimburse anything. Just brutal."
Cons: "Gluten free meal not provided as requested. Entertainment totally lacking."
Cons: "I do not like nor eat your cookies. You could do better."
Pros: "The staff was impressive with how friendly and welcoming they were! Everything went smoothly and I am a happy passenger!"
Pros: "On time. Was able to sleep through much of what was likely an annoying flight because there was no personal entertainment--the tiny screens overhead would have been impossible to see and they were showing a movie that was lame. It seemed anachronistic."
Cons: "At the Lima gate they made each passenger open their carryon and submit to a secondary inspection to confiscate all water we bought past security. No warning was given about this. I had paid airport prices for water to bring onto the plane and then had to surrender it at the gate. Of course in economy class they will not give you water or attention until you are at cruising altitude. More than one flight attendant did not smile and one was actually rude in spite of my attempts to be kind and smile. Except for one friendly person at check-in kiosk, bad service overall. They do not have personal entertainment systems, and it was like going back in time with the tiny screens you cannot see, playing a movie you either watch it or not."
Pros: "Awesome service"
Cons: ":)"
Pros: "Smooth takeoff and landing. The seats were comfortable for a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "Stuffy on the plane. This might not be the airline’s problem but it was hot and the air vent didn’t cool me down."
Pros: "Delayed and no AC working..."
Cons: "Late departure. Sat on tarmac for 20 minutes"
Cons: "Attendant took too long to hand out drinks, then ran out of water for the back of the plane. By the time we got water it was almost time to land."
Pros: "Average. Expectation for US airlines are so low this flight score average."
Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Being delayed"
Pros: "Entertainment Captain Food"
Pros: "it was fine. flight left on time and the crew was nice."
Cons: "that you have to pay $100+ for economy plus to get the legroom you used to get for a regular ticket."
Pros: "Got to pick my seat. Got food. Spacious. Timely. Friendly. And best of all.. the middle seat was open and I got some extra leg room!"
Cons: "Hey for airplane food I can't complain. Especially since I didn't even know I'd be getting any. (For free!). The chicken and mashed potatoes were a little funky but still ate and enjoyed it."
Pros: "All good, excellent crew and on time."
Cons: "The food, of coarse!"
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: "I appreciated the American Airlines crew at the gate in Chicago, who helped us to get two seats together. The flight crew was excellent as well."
Cons: "Not being able to choose our seats beforehand."
Pros: "Quick boarding to make up for a late flight arrival."
Pros: "Baggage drop agent in Oakland excellent Great A319 w power outlets Thanks"
Pros: "Roomy first class and very nice staff!"
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "The staff, American airlines did not accommodate me. I purchased a first class ticket American airlines flight was delayed making me late for my connection on another American flight. I was given a coach ticket and told to take it leave it."
Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "That i was able to apply my delta sky miles account to the reservation"
Cons: "That it was actually an american flight, not alaska. Agents at desk tried to tell me i couldn't hang my hanging back and had to roll it up and put it in purse. Internet connection is horrendous. Flight attendant not willing to reimburse me after i paid $34 and received no internet. Will avoid flying American going forward at all costs."
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: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Security checkpoint was very quick, being a Sunday morning, and we departed on time. Everything was very normal."
Pros: "It was fine"
Pros: "The crew were friendly"
Cons: "Bad seating system you can have a front of plane seat, but be boarded last. That creates personal items from being able to be placed near your seat and forced to put in bins at back of plane. That means waiting for entire plane to unboard before getting personal items"
Pros: "Gate was changed no one notified us and my family missedthe flight . one hou rextra wait. No apologies was extended."
Cons: "The people were rude, the food was mediocre."
Pros: "Plane didn't crash."
Cons: "Late flight, they didn't update the board at all. Forced me to check my carry on luggage because they didn't do their job correctly. Overall terrible service, will avoid AA in the future."
Cons: "There was no more room on the plane so me and 10 other passengers had to wait 3 hrs for next flight."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "I was so please how American Airlines was able to take care of me due to I was unable to maneuver through the airport due to my surgery. The experience was more than excellent it was a experience of compassion one that I will never forget. American Airlines made my travel stress free and very comfortable due to the upgrading to First Class....Smile thank you once again"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and welcoming. I enjoy having more choices then just pretzels and peanuts for a snack."
Cons: "The boarding process seems like it is hectic and not very well planned. A lot of people still standing in line that are not actually boarding yet because they are not in the correct group. This made it hard to actually board and know where the line was. Once on the plane the seats just seemed very uncomfortable."
