Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "waited for us. We were late from Yuma"
Pros: "It was quick."
Cons: "The plane could have arrived on time, made sure everything worked fine, and got me to my destination like they said they were going to... instead, stand by for a different flight was not what I paid for... but it is what I got."
Pros: "The size of the plane."
Cons: "Wider seats. More entertainment options other that the Limited Live Television options."
Cons: "Delay of 1 h at Philadelphia to Syracuse !!"
Pros: "The back crew member was amazing. She really seemed like she cared."
Cons: "Larger seats and larger walkways."
Cons: "Never made it. Stranded at LAX."
Cons: "The landing was very rough from Nashville to Dallas"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "More snack choices"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Seats were more comfortable than other airline seats."
Pros: "Old aircraft. No media at the seats. Why are old aircraft still being used?"
Cons: "Basically everything. For the price, the flight on AA across the sea was horrible."
Pros: "The cookies"
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed inexperienced and not professional."
Cons: "Handicap issues. We were exiting on the tarmac in Charlotte- all crew left us on the plane waiting for assistance to get off. Finally when someone showed they would not come up the ramo to get my Mom. I backed her down myself while 5 bewildered airport workers looked confused."
Cons: "Make seat available for two of us together not every one in a deferent row"
Cons: "Nothing, it was fast and we arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "There was a maintenance issue on departing plane which delayed us a few minutes and when we arrived to layover airport (note we still arrived before the connecting flight was scheduled to leave), the connecting flight had decided to leave early and was gone. Now stranded with standby and all the flights for the next few days are sold out. Beyond angry!"
Pros: "Food was surprisingly pretty good. Good entertainment options."
Cons: "The 3 1/2 hour delay was the worst - missed our connecting flight because of it, which is pretty bad when you're supposed to have a 3 1/2 hour layover. Then the flight they put us on was 3 1/2 hours late. We got home at 7 am instead of midnight. Spent 45 minutes sitting on the runway in Philadelphia because another plane was at our gate so we had to wait for them to take off, not just leave the gate. Flight attendants were efficient but not at all friendly - not a smile among them."
Cons: "No one knew what was going on. We boarded late, then sat there for 40 minutes with no communication, then we had to de-plane. But they couldn't get the jet way to work, so it took forever."
Pros: "Collecting bags was terribleterriblel"
Cons: "Collecting bags was terrible"
Pros: "Crew serving was bad"
Cons: "Quality of food not good"
Pros: "Our plane was given to another group going to Orlando so we were delayed almost 4 hours. This after a 5 hour layover."
Cons: "Gate lady was funny about being pissed about the delay."
Cons: "headphone jack defective but more importantly the SFO arrival gate not available for over 45 minutes...."
Pros: "Worst airline food in years."
Cons: "Food was bad on all 4 legs of trip"
Pros: "My flights were booked through British Airways, but these segments were operated by American. Madrid to Dallas was on a 787 (a very nice ride). Entertainment options were very good (although not as diverse as on British Airways). Food was excellent. The crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "There is not enough waiting space at Madrid Terminal 4S for passengers on large aircraft. Boarding was not as fast and orderly as it should have been. Customs and passport control at DFW is very time consuming (much slower than at many other comparable airports). To change terminals, it is necessary to go back through security and then take a train. It took more than 1.5 hours for me to clear customs and get to another terminal for my connection."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "This is not Iberia's fault but AA - when we all got to the departure lounge (not check in) in Manchester we were informed there was to be a stop at Gander, Newfoundland, to refuel. Then I realized AA had put a Boeing 757 on flight AA55 instead of the usual 767 and it doesn't have enough fuel for the westbound flight against prevailing headwinds. When I got home AA had sent me 2 emails - 1 advising me of a delay on my AA55 flight MAN-YQX (Gander), despite the fact that the schedule calls for a flight MAN-ORD. The 2nd rebooking me on a later AA flight from ORD-SGF. AA are guilty of deception here and their sleight of hand caused me 4 hours delay arriving at SGF and a night in a hotel instead of driving home."
Pros: "The agents and stewards were very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "I took American's first direct flight between Philadelphia and San Antonio. It was a nice plane, good service, and amenities for a cost. Love that the plane had plugs!"
Pros: "Nice leg room seats were comfortable loved the movie selection"
Cons: "Vest flight ever way better then copa"
Pros: "I have to use crutches to walk and before bording one of the attendants noticed me and changed me to priority bording and seatimg on the plain, she then came and helped me making sure I was the first person to board the plain."
Cons: "I've never been help so much by a flight staff they were fantastic. The food was topical airplain food but the entertainment was pretty good and the over all experience was really nice."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and accommodating. The food as usual just snack type food for purchase as expected. The entertainment system malfunctioned and we could not watch the movie they offered. However one flight attendant was very nice and gave my kids special cookies. Nice touch!"
Pros: "Nice airline very accommodating. Loved first class"
Pros: "Wide seats"
Cons: "Mo food service"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The plane was incredibly old and outdated. There were no plugs for power/charging, there were a few tiny screens scattered around for one movie as entertainment. It was so uncomfortable to not have individual screens for entertainment. The food was awful. I would not want to take this flight again."
Cons: "I hated the waiting area at Pearson. I hated the temperature and how tiny the seats are. Was so hot and absolutely miserable."
Pros: "The flight was pretty quick; boarding and exit went smoothly."
Cons: "The plane was old (25 years), no power supply at seat, tight spaces, movies played in widely spaced monitors located over the center aisle."
Pros: "Gate staff had a nice sense of humor and did keep us reasonably informed about the delayed departure."
Cons: "The headroom and seating space on this plane were tight and inadequate. Paid extra for 'preferred seating' but certainly couldn't tell that I got anything for the money. Had to duck to get in and out of seat. Was in a 2-seat row with a large, but not oversize young man and our shoulders were glued together the entire trip. Was served warm tomato juice with no ice, although ice bucket was full. last flight of evening so perhaps attendants were tired, but nonetheless...."
Cons: "Horrible delays. Delta doesn't have these problems."
Pros: "Seats were better padded than that of the previous flight. There was sufficient leg room for a short flight. Seats actually allowed for passengers to adjust back of seats."
Cons: "Space is very limited between neighborning seats."
Pros: "Clean plane . excellent staff"
Pros: "I flew Tokyo to Vegas and the entertainment was great."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight vis lax and put me on a flight vis Dallas. That added about 7 hours to my journey. Then they sit on the tarmac for 50 minutes doing nothing on both of the two flights."
Pros: "I sat next to a friend I haven't seen in almost a year"
Cons: "I missed the connection in London and had to wait 5 hours for another flight. This was only due the fact that there is no help to passengers in connection. I had over an hour and a half to get to my flight but waiting for the busses and to commute to the right gate took so long that I missed my flight."
Pros: "I liked almost everything! I loved the timing, the punctuality, the service (besides one person from the service), the food was good. I did not like that it was really cold. Also, I liked the movies they played but it is kind of hard to watch when you are right below the tv"
Cons: "I liked almost everything! I loved the timing, the punctuality, the service (besides one person from the service), the food was good. I did not like that it was really cold. Also, I liked the movies they played but it is kind of hard to watch when you are right below the tv"
Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"
Pros: "Avianca originally denied me a boarding pass because of a broken ankle injury sustained while on vacation. After a lot of arguing with the check in staff I was 'allowed' to purchase an upgrade to fist class. The Cusco checkin staff (except one) should be ashamed. The flight crew was fantastic."
Pros: "AA is excellent."
Pros: "3 hrs delay Small plaine No entertainment"
Pros: "The staff were all quite polite and helpful"
Cons: "the boarding process is chaotic. No one pays attention to the boarding numbers and it's just a big, pushing, shoving mess. I'd like to see a little more use of the system to keep.people more orderly."
Pros: "Nothing :("
Cons: "My trip was delayed 2 times and I had to boook for a different flight on different day! Absolutely no voucher or anything for hotel stay very disappointed"
Cons: "The TV control pads are a major FAIL. And all of the baggage charges are despicable piracy."
Cons: "The cs"
Pros: "My trip overall was great . I like the many stops for us to walk around and not be stuck in the plane for 11 plus hours . Our planes all the way to Zurich and back had no delays at all . Awesome"
Cons: "The only proble we experience was in the way back our booking didn’t show in the system only partial."
Cons: "The plane did not have screens at the seats for an 8 hour flight. The Wifi app to watch films worked on and off. The crew weren’t the friendliest. The seats barely reclined. Would not recommend this flight."
Pros: "Safe travel"
Cons: "Cramped and warm"
Pros: "My wife and I flew Lufthansa a good deal in the 1970s and 80s, we stopped in the early 90s because I was working with young people and had difficulties provided them with a non-smoking environment. This is the first time I have used Lufthansa since 1992. Based on the flights over and back, I believe we will start using it again."
Cons: "Experience with partner airlines is not as good as with Lufthansa directly. I mean, Austrian and United. They do not provide the same attention to detail, courtesy, or organization, particularly pre boarding and boarding."
Pros: "Pilot interaction."
Cons: "Entertainment system did not work for anyone on the 14 hour flight!"
Pros: "Decent flight, can’t complain, pretty much empty."
Cons: "laberithine process to get my boarding pass. Booked on Kayak with last minute on a Luthanasa flight operated by United. Basically had to call all three in order to get my boarding passes as the website didn’t work. Really confusing."
Pros: "I paid for extra space and it satisfy my needs."
Cons: "The personnel service during the flight was mediocre. In my opinion they don’t know what is customer satisfaction. They have to show that they like what they do with a simple smile. They are not doing the customer a favor . That is their job a good customer satisfaction"
Cons: "There was a flight attendant who was a little rude."
Pros: "Nice flight"
Pros: "The respect for the time and the organization to boarding"
Cons: "My baggage did not arrive to my destination"
Pros: "Plenty of room and the flight crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was delayed and ran out of overhead bin space (no attention paid to size or number. The boarding groups (particularly between 3/4) was a mess in terms of organized lines."
Cons: "My first flight leg was delayed 2 hrs 15 mins because of "air traffic control conditions". I was told that I would make my connection, so I took the delayed first leg, and when I arrived in Denver for my 2nd leg. Was informed that my connection had already left the gate & I had to spend an awful night at the airport when I could've just stayed in Durango on a nice soft bed at my friends house. Wish I would've had an honest assessment of my flight plans because my choice would've been different."
Pros: "People were courteous as expected but as usual the 1st class took precedence. Big deal they pay extra for what, not to eat 1 ounce snack foods and cans of soda."
Cons: "The room and the food was horrible. Seems like every time I take a flight people get stuffed into planes like sardines. Also the food selection was nonexistent. There was not enough qty for each person on the flight and the food choices are subpar and very expensive. If u ask me with the exorbant cost of flight to include now the cost to bring luggage is horrible. What happened to the days when airlines actually cared for their customers. I guess those days are long gone. I have been in he military over 17 years and not once have I received a courtesy upgrade to 1st class and I have flew over the world. Guess it's all about the money. And have to pay for entertainment....go figure and why isn't there outlets on every seta in every row. Is that too much to ask!"
Pros: "Competent, organized, pleasant and efficient staff, on time"
Pros: "The flight seemed a little more steady and more drinks were offered."
Cons: "The flight from Chicago to Fairbanks was a little better, but when it came time for me to use the restroom, the flight attendant was quite rude. I explained I had been waiting for the past 2 hours but she didn't seem to care. The seats were terribly uncomfortable."
Pros: "Friendly service."
Pros: "The crew was nice and boarding process went smoothly."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment would constantly shut off and not work causing you to restart everything. Also, multiple movies being offered were unavailable.'"
Pros: "Even though I was on connecting flights and weather sounded like it might interfere, that was not the case. Each flight went smoothly and easily. It was a fantastic travel day."
Pros: "Upgraded me to a bulkhead seat to accommodate my 6ft 4 inch frame!"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Nothing the flight left without me due to united being late"
Pros: "Friendly crew and easy boarding. Handled. Rude obnoxious passenger very well"
Cons: "Old, rundown feeling. Not real comfortable"
Pros: "great crew great flight and in flight service."
Cons: "Terrible delays and little to no communication."
Pros: "Staff members were courteous."
Cons: "United airlines ground team need to knwo whats is costumer service...."
Cons: "Missed connection in sfo. Had to stay overnight in sfo."
Cons: "You had to pay for internet service in order to watch the free movies."
Pros: "Everything ran super smooth from baggage check in to departure exactly on time. Even arrived 25 min early."
Cons: "Even upgrading to economy plus seating it was still u comfortable. Wifi if you chose to pay. Tiny little bag of pretzels."
Pros: "The courtesy of the attendants was good"
Cons: "snacks could be doubled"
Cons: "Two hours delayed two hours on the tarmac."
Pros: "The boarding procedure was okay but my flight was delayed"
Cons: "I usually fly southwest...the flight was hot and uncomfortable, the a/c was blowing hot air thru the whole flight was very disappointed"
Pros: "I enjoyed an on time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "I purchased two tickets for premium economy. United issued us economy seats and required payment to upgrade to economy plus. In addition the flight was 5 hours late. Very unhappy with United and would not do this again. SAS was great. United did not honor our ticket for Premium economy purchased through SAS."
Pros: "Everything , great service , very attentive , smooth flight ."
Cons: "I was flying from Pittsburgh to Chicago to Fairbanks. My flight from Pittsburgh was delayed. My connecting flight from Chicago to Fairbanks was in the very next gate. But as I exited my first flight, my connecting flight pulled away from the gate. I was extremely disappointed."
Cons: "The flight was overbooked and asked for several volunteers to take later flights for travel credit. Ended up forcing those unlucky souls in the last boarding group off flight with no offer of credit or accommodation. Waited in customer service line for hours, literally longer than it would have taken to take off and arrive at my scheduled destination. United representatives could not find a flight that guaranteed a seat (not on a long standby list) that was even in the same 12 hour period. I spoke with a United supervisor who showed zero empathy or concern with the situation. In the end I arranged for other travel accommodations to drive to my family reunion destination. No refund was issued or offered. I was informed I would have to call United customer service after the date of my previously scheduled return flight to explain my situation. I will personally never fly United again and would recommend the same to anyone. Although for the record, I did receive a single ten dollar airport food voucher for my inconvenience. Inexcusable."
Pros: "Same as Co's to Houston"
Cons: "The flight to New York was delayed over 6 hours and we did not get anymore information than "air traffic control." A very upsetting experience overall."
Pros: "Has aisle seat so I could stretch one leg."
Cons: "Was crammed in the back with not enough knee room. I'm not overweight, (5'11", 200 lbs) people (including flight attendant kept banging into me as they went past. 1 flight attendant (middle-aged man) obnoxious. Lots of empty seats in the "economy plus" section, once flight was in motion...attendant refused to let anyone move. United obviously shortened up the leg room and space towards the back of the plane to make room for "economy plus" then just left those seats empty when passengers refused to pay the additional $170 (what obnoxious flight attendant said) to sit there. I will look for other carriers..."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and nice Free wine and beer"
Cons: "NO individual screens - we had to use the United app on our own phones/devices, but the wifi kept going in and out, at some point for 2 hours, which was really disruptive. Streaming these movies on our devices killed our batteries. Fortunately, there were outlets, but that meant chords of all kinds across the seats and being tangled in them every time someone went to the bathroom. Seats/rows were very narrow"
Cons: "On a flight as long as this one was it should have included FREE use of the movies, TV shows, the entertainment feature ."
Pros: "First class was nice but I paid for 1st class for the whole flight and only got it on the first leg. They should have told me that when they took my money."
Cons: "2nd leg was terrible it was over an hour and a half late because they had to replace a toilet seat! I paid for an upgrade for first class and they over booked it so I didn't get it and haven't received my money back. Terrible customer service."
Cons: "Bad service, delay flight, crew not smile and food being a delay flight as courtesy not even a free meal?"
Cons: "They lost my piece of luggage."
Pros: "Getting to my destination"
Cons: "Almost 3 hours delay on the way there and the same on the way back. It's so unacceptable"
Cons: "Although it did not happy to me personally, one of the flight attendants had a bit of an attitude towards several other passengers."
