Cons: "Flight was delayed, but it didn’t interfere with my travel plans."
Pros: "Not much went well, sorry"
Cons: "Because of bad logistics, the flight from CDG to FRA was delayed and therefore i missed my connection to AUS. Lufthansa personnel could have helped me make the second flight but didn't bother. I was rebooked on another flight through IAH which defeats the purpose of choosing a direct flight."

Cons: "A delay to unload then reload bags, followed by no in-flight communication of connecting flights, led to a missed connection and an overnight hotel stay."

Pros: "Attentive and friendly crew, good selection of in-flight entertainment"
Cons: "Crew did not come around very frequently with water throughout flight, mostly only during regular beverage service."
Pros: "Actual flight, staff, food, beverages."
Cons: "Altho I checked in on line in advance, i was unable to print my boarding pass . Lufthansa very little space for check in & luggage at Charles de Gaule and staff advised me to arrive at 4am for 7:45am departure so I could stand in line to get boarding pass and deposit luggage. I did so. Wait was not too long. Security was fast by comparison."
Pros: "Arriving on time."
Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Pros: "The staff was communicative and genuine. The food was decent. Even though the flight arrived late I felt ok about it due to the direct communication of details about the situation. I was stuck in the extremely cramped space of seats just in front of the lavatory making the seat in front me 5 inches from my nose when reclined but the staff was sympathetic offering to ask the passenger in front of me to redress their seat more upright and also allowing me to spread out across two seats to compensate."
Cons: "While the staff compensated for the more than standardly cramped seating arrangement, I think the row of seats just in front of the lavatories should be either better designed or designated not usable. I am only 5’3” and 125lbs but still was faced with a mere 5 inches in front of me when the passenger in front of me reclined his seat. I couldn’t even stand in order to exit the row and had to crawl over the seats to my side. This had me thinking how dangerous this row could be in case of an emergency. Please consider designating these seats either not to be used or optional for passengers."
Pros: "Clean, polite and cheerful staff, good food conveniently offered, on time, decent in-flight entertainment."
Pros: "Great service, comfy plane, smooth ride."
Pros: "I love Lufthansa! Great service, comfortable, warm towels before meals served with real silverware. Amazing!"

Cons: "Flight was delayed twice. 3 hour trip took 15 hours."
Pros: "Arrived with enough time for me to connect to my international flight."
Cons: "Boarding had no clear order. Had an international connecting flight and by the time I needed to board, there was no room in the overhead and I had to check my luggage. The airline should provide a vegan snack option for customers."
Cons: "I was very irritated and angry about the checking in procedure at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris. Lufthansa representatives were extremely slow and inefficient. I already performed the check in online. What is the purpose of online check in if I had to wait in line almost an hour only to drop off my luggage???!! Very unpleasant experience."
Cons: "The boarding area was cramped."
Pros: "Still thinking about it."
Cons: "I didn't like that there was no organization. People just flooded the gate like animals.."
Pros: "Crew attention"
Cons: "Expect to pay $85 euro for a carry on bag that they will ask you to check in. This is our returning trip with the same set of bags for the round trip to Paris. At the gate we were asked to check in the other carry on bag which we bought right before the trip making sure it fit the new small size req. Still that was put into check-in. We ended up with no carry on luggages with us boarded. Only to find quite a lot of bags that are much bigger than ours were allowed to be in the cabin."

Pros: "Smooth flight. No delay, no unpleasant surprise."
Cons: "The boarding process takes too long as people try to take too many things"
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked."
Cons: "The snack provided was totally insufficient. the check-in staff were stringent about luggage size and weight even when the flight was not full."

Cons: "You could have been on time. You negatively impacts ppls lives and don’t give af."

Cons: "You could have been on time. You could be accountable. You ruined my wife’s 40th birthday by failing to fulfill you’re end of the deal."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The leg room was abysmal, Southwest has more leg room and they brand themselves as a cheaper carrier than a American. Also the wifi was either very slow or did not work."
Pros: "The crew was nice, the flight overall was pleasant and fast"
Cons: "The food, the confort of the seats, my seat recliner button was not working there"
Cons: "Free real food"
Cons: "Flight attendant for main cabin disappeared after first round of service on a 3 hour flight. LAX is horrible. Delayed 30 minutes for take off."

Pros: "Awesome crew. Very pleasant people."
Cons: "2 hours late. Thanks ohare."
Pros: "I had to sprint from customs in terminal D to skyrail then skyrail terminal A to gate 33, to make my flight. Could not see gate 33 but heard your staff shout out, "San Antonio"? Very grateful they saw me running or else I would have missed my flight."

Cons: "It took 30 ish minutes to wait in line to speak to to an AA rep about what my next steps were to get home from Dallas."
Pros: "It was short"
Cons: "Completely full plane. Ridiculously tight seat pitch. Overhead bins full. 45-minute delay for a dead-heading flight crew. Long wait for checked baggage. No beverage service because of turbulence. Flight crew out of position is a management problem, don't make it an inconvenience for a 737 full of paying passengers!"
Pros: "The flight was so short we did not even get a snack, only an offer of a bottle of water; this was simply due to to short length of the flight. Basic economy had my wife and I 16 rows apart each in a middle seat. I was in the very last seat on the plane. Flight attendants were attentive and surprisingly very nice, legroom is non-existent (same as every flight in plain coach)."

The whole experience went considerably better than we expected since we did not know how our son was going to handle it. All in all we were very happy thanks to the wonderful AA staff that helped us at each stop."
Cons: "Limited drink and food choices. It was a short flight, so I think it's understandable."
Pros: "Pilots were excellent and flight crew was good."
Cons: "I signed up for a British Airways flight and American Airlines flew the route."
Pros: "this flight only takes an hour so really nothing is an issue. again, there was plenty of overhead storage so nothing ended up under the seat."
Cons: "Sat next to a dog guy and the crew did not help with the situation"
Pros: "Entertainment on long flights is vast. Flight attendants are nice and are prompt with requests."
Cons: "Bags that are told will be planeside end up being sent to tne final destination and no tags are given to the riders to let them know beforehand. Workers at counters were very rude."
Pros: "crew was nice"
Cons: "never was told that a shuttle was needed to get from gate to actual aircraft. I almost missed my flight because of this."
Pros: "The only thing I liked about my flight from DFW to San Antonio was the fact that I FINALLY got to go home."
Cons: "The fact my layover was in Dallas, I couldn't board on time because of our departure from Denver being delayed from ice, and the gate got switched about three times. I've never been in a standby list, but I barely made it. I'll never want to fly through DFW again!!! The American Airlines employees were mostly inconsiderate, with the exception of two staff members. Not sure about this airline again."
Cons: "I was forced to check my carry-on bag because it was too big according to the gate agent. I travel weekly, always carry-on my luggage and I have never been told it needed to be checked. AA had a ticket counter agent that was on a mission because she had a roll away cart parked by the jet way door to collect all the luggage she wouldn't allow on the plane. Very customer unfriendly!"

Pros: "Flight delayed which allowed us to make connection after long runway and customs delays. Crew friendly and helpful. Prompt cabin service. Baggage brought quickly in SAT. Clean plane. Power source."
Cons: "Local pickup at SAT is now devoted to taxi. Airport police rude. Most people picked up at 11PM and hard for cars to get to curb or see passenger due to taxi line. Both terminals terrible after several experiences in last couple months. SAT worst pickup experience that I see national and international travel. Obvious that cabs and air port police are the worst congestion problem I experience."
Cons: "Time was on point. And the flight was smooth. No complaints"
Pros: "After missing my flight by a few minutes, AA booked me on the next flight which was only a 40 min wait, which was a blessing."
Cons: "Missed my initial flight due to how long it took to get my baggage to go through customs (after arriving from Japan.) My baggage was then left in Dallas and I had to wait until the following night to receive it."
Pros: "Staff and customer service were great"
Pros: "Nice airplane, it appeared pretty new. Everything was clean."

Cons: "more space and be able to recline"
Pros: "They had a great selection of movies, each passenger received a blanket and pillow without having to ask, the crew was friendly and professional, and the takeoff and landing were smooth."
Cons: "During the reservation process it seemed that the ticket included luggage, and only when I received the ticket I discovered that I had to pay 30 Euro extra, each way, to check in luggage. The ticket was by no means low-cost, so I don't understand why that wasn't included in the price. And the food could have been much better, I really couldn't eat anything and I usually like airline food... :) Thanks!"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "When I bought the ticket, checked bags were included in the price. When I got to the counter, they said no and I paid $80, which was more than the flight for two cost. When I tried to use my frequent flyer account to pay for the bags, they said I couldn’t, although I had over $200 in credit. Very bad service! Very bad!"
Pros: "Great customer service"
Cons: "The seats are really small. Even for people not considered tall."
Cons: "crew seemed a tad sour. came around with morning tea but without proper cups. attendant seemed annoyed when my neighbor asked for a paper cup in lieu of the plastic juice cup he already had. not a big deal but kinda weird"
Cons: "The condition of the flight attendants should be improve so that they not appear to be grouchy all the time. My video display was not functioning, when I asked for help the flight attendant seemed offended. He went to the back and did get it fixed. I thanked him, but he did not even look at me."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "A drink of water should not cost 2euro. On a moderately long flight it is a necessity."

Cons: "Lost bags, dirty plane, seats switched from together with my wife on our honeymoon to seperate."
Pros: "Iberias actual flights are always excellent from the crew, entertainment, food, and all the way up to the pilots smooth landings."
Pros: "First time flying El Al. Hopefully my last. They delayed the flight to give three people - two of whom were ladies iver the age of fifty - intensive security screens. I was given one as well. They took my laptop, one of my pbones, my tanlet, and my headphones. This would havr neen bearable if El Al invested in its cabins, but that doesnt seem the case. The headphones provided were similar to models from the 90s (and worked just as well), there was no individual screen for entertainment, and the seats were exceedingly cramped. At least the Wi-Fi was free."
Pros: "First time experience with Iberia. Very comfortable, friendly & good service."
Pros: "Some good films to watch"
Cons: "Terrible seats mediocre food our tickets said Iberia but it was actually its low-cost version Level"

Pros: "Good short flight, we even arrived earlier at Bilbao."
Cons: "No food or drink."
Cons: "No body let me know that my connecting flight had been canceled, even though they knew before my previous flight landed. Not many options for getting to my destination. Had to change airports and didn’t offered much help with that."
Pros: "Nice plane an movies"
Cons: "The lost my luggage"
Pros: "The time"
Cons: "The servicie inside the plane"
Pros: "The plane arrived safely, it will get you where you want to go."
Cons: "Like everyone says, you are cattle jammed in a sardine can. Barely any leg room and I’m 5’3. Other thoughts: the plane was old, my seat had a lump in it, zero entertainment, food was over priced. (3 Euro for a tiny water). This may seem petty but ultimately the appearance and function of the plane represents their company as a whole. From my first impressions, I’m thinking as a passenger is: I just hope the age and appearance of the plane isn’t reflective of their repairs and maintenance work as well."
Pros: "the flight crew was cordial and efficient. we arrived on time."
Cons: "The planes were older and the seats were not comfortable for the length of the flights."
Pros: "The dinner that was served wasn't terrible"

Pros: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "Absolutely everything. I paid for a seat only to get bumped to the very back of the plane. I waited in line for 30 plus minutes to talk to a gate agent who just ignored everyone in line. Their service is worse than United. You get what you pay for. I will never fly with these clowns again. And I want my $33 back for the seat I didn't get!!!!!"
Pros: "Shortness of flight"
Cons: "Flight attendant would not help get luggage into overhead. Inattentive for food and drink needs."
Pros: "Spacious and quick."
Cons: "Food was not included."
Pros: "The codeshare system with American is so far from seamless! The messed up the seat assignment that I paid for and tried to make me feel like it was my fault! It was a huge hassle to change."
Pros: "I thought almost everything about the flight was great (lots of leg room, courteous staff, nice entertainment, short flight even arriving slightly early."
Cons: "The only thing that I wish was different was that they had a vegetarian food option available"
Pros: "I liked the Crew they were very patient with all the passengers. They were bunch of really annoying kids in front of me and handled them very professionally."
Cons: "I didn't like that I could not control the air in business class. I spent good money to sit up there and I would expect to have control of the air because I had a 11 hr flight in a 90 degree plane. It was really a uncomfortable. Also I didn't like that their was no sporting events or cooking channels to watch on my flight and the movie selection were horrible."

Pros: "flight was smooth"
Cons: "We basically were left without info about connecting flight! Also priority boarding for passengers with kids should be announced. It's not the job of passengers to ask. Crew could use more friendliness and being more helpful in giving directions especially in flight and for connections. The lady that checked us in was the worst. We gave her boarding passes and passport and after checking she gave them back to me in a disorganized way, I had a toddler and I had to stop and arrange my documents first. She did not even indicate where to keep the strollers. All she cared was to see d face of my toddler, in my effort to get d child up from stroller and turn her around to her, she fell and guess what, this lady did not even react! Unflinching, she just wanted to check d face of my 3 year old in case she is impersonating. That being said, some other staff were very friendly so this is not generalizing all to be same way"
Pros: "The food, wine and service were all great."
Pros: "The flight was not fully booked so there was some extra space....ie empty seats"
Cons: "The flight was 1.5 hours late in departing. Fortunately we just made our connecting flight in time."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very professional and nice."
Cons: "The flight took off late and did not make up the lost time during the flight."
Pros: "The plane was nice."
Cons: "The food and service and all the delays. One was cancelled and the hotel that the put us up in the food was horrible. They offered us no compensation."
Pros: "Food and movies were good"
Cons: "I received a boarding pass in AMD for all my flights, when at the gate in paris the agent said we have to give you a new boarding pass and seat. I had window prior, now it was the MIDDLE SEAT!!!! They said they couldnt do anything about it because Air India changed it and they couldnt do anything about it. Especially since the flight was also full. Not Air Canada's fault, but the expererince of middle seat is TERRIBLE."
Pros: "Drop off at the counter was fast and easy on the upper level departure entrance. From my drop off at 9:00 am, I made it thru baggage check-in, passing thru passport control, passing thru security and into the gate duty free area in 25 mins! Impressive experience."
Cons: "With an hour delay out of Paris due to waiting for missing aircraft flight documents to be completed and delivered to the airplane on the holding ramp, we ended up arriving in Toronto an hour late. With only an original connection time of 90 minutes, it was not possible for me to make it thru Canadian and US customs to the connection gate. I was to learn that no other connection to a Kansas City was available until much later in the afternoon / early evening. As a result, I ended up arriving in Kansas City 6 (six) hours later than originally scheduled, three quarters of the time it took to travel from Paris to Toronto. To say the least , I was not at all thrilled having lost that time."
Pros: "Nice plane, food, staff, entertainment. It was great"
Cons: "A totally unremarkable experience. There is no wifi and no extra legroom option. This is a very "economy" level of service for an international flight. Packed in like sardines, offered gross food, hardly anything to entertain you and they literally never stop walking up and down the aisles with carts so good luck going to the bathroom. (that could be said of almost any flight nowadays)."
Cons: "We missed our flight to Minnepolis we got a later flight home. We were tired and disappointed about getting home late. When we got to the gate our plane was still there but they said it was too late to get on but they delayed the plane 10 minutes to take our luggage off. We got a later flight. Not happy."
Pros: "The plain was new"
Cons: "I asked for a blanket and they told me that they are out of blankets"
Cons: "By the time the food arrived at our seats the protein version was no longer available. This happened on the flight to Paris as well. A customer complained about a small child and the child and parent were moved to behind my seat. After an hour of the toddler kicking my seat I asked to be moved to any other seat on the plane. Was told too bad, nothing they could do. Spent the 8 hour flight being kicked and listening to yelling."
Pros: "Please post meal intentions on-line so I can plan for the possible need to bring food on board. I had repeated instances when my elbow would hit the buttons on the arm rest, thereby changing video/lights/call for help, etc. Poor ergonometric placement."
Cons: "Delayed over an hour, making it almost impossible to catch our connecting flight in Montreal. Thankfully, the flight out of Montreal was delayed and we were able to make the flight by the very last minute."
Cons: "It was late by an hour and I missed my connection. My flight on the way out we sat on the plane an hour and a half. Once the connection was missed they didn't handle things smoothly at all. I could write a book but it will just get me worked up again."
Pros: "Very kind & attentive crew made my flight to Europe enjoyable. Baggage check-in & pick-up was quick. It was one of the most affordable flight options. For the price, I was very satistied with my experience."
Cons: "Seats were smaller."
Pros: "Food was much better than I've had on a plane in years"
Cons: "touch screen was very finicky"
Cons: "Missed connecting flight due to late take off from Paris and long wait at customs in Montreal."
Pros: "International flights were Excellent. Competent personnel, good food, comfortable seating."
Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "The food and the seats were cramp"
Pros: "The crew and wonderful, and it's why i chose Air Canada -- i have flown with them a few times over the years and have never had a bad experience during the flight. they are always pleasant! Kudos to them."
Cons: "At Paris, I was given the boarding passes that went with my original itinerary even tho the flight had already been changed. they told me my bag was checked through to dulles --hindsight is 20/20. if only i hadn't checked the bag. I don't think coach seats should be 'reclinable' -- the space is much too small. it's rude to do so in such cramped quarters and there's always one rude person. she happened to sit in front of me and never put her seat up the entire flight."
Pros: "The movie selection and the food was great! The crew was friendly and helpful. The pillows and blanket provided made for a little bit more comfort."
Cons: "The lack of space in the cabin was very uncomfortable. Being arm in arm with strangers is not my idea of a great flight. Flights lasting over 4 hours should really be courteous to those on board."
Pros: "It was a good flight overall."
Pros: "Food was reasonably good, and seat had enough legroom, more than in some airlines I have flown recently."
Cons: "very disorganized. website for checkin was indecipherable. I had to call Air Canada, which charged me for the call (15 centimes per minute) then put me on hold, only to finally learn that I could only check in in person because we were traveling with a pet. --- We paid extra for preferential seating, and when we got to the counter were told that we could not have those seats bcs we were traveling with a pet - the pet was acknowledged on our records and travel documents, yet the company allowed us to sign up for preferential seating, then would not let us access those seats, but our previously reserved window seats were gone and we were assigned aisle and center seats, which were then changed again to other aisle and center seats. --- Half the flights on the departure board, including ours, were delayed, alhto there were no weather problems. Both our plane and the plane in the gate next to where we were waiting had mechanical problems - a coincidence, or a repeated failing?"
Pros: "Entertainment system was awesome. Flight was comfortable. Crew very friendly."
Cons: "Checkin staff at airport was not friendly. Airline cannot allocate seats together even though booking was done months in advance. seriously!!!"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, the food was good and the in flight entertainment options offered a good variety of recent releases."
Cons: "It was late. Again. Each of my Air Canada flights have been late and boarding was a mess."
Pros: "The movie selection was relatively good."
Cons: "They changed my seat 3 times before I got on the plane (from a window seat to an aisle seat and much farther back on the plane). I didn't complain and got on the plane, only to be told for a forth time (after I had already settled in my seat) that I had to change my seat again, to a middle seat. It was by far the least comfortable seat I have sat in with very little room both in front of and next to me. Nobody should be asked to move like that, especially after choosing my seat online at least three months prior to the flight when I purchased my ticket. Food also not great."
Pros: "I liked the comfortable airplane. The bathroom we used by the front of the cabin was a great size bathroom. Food was OK but could have been better."
Cons: "I upgraded the seats for me and my 9 year old daughter to economy premium for about $300 per seat. You would think they would give you two seats together considering you are flying with a minor. Nope! The seats were on different side of the isle and they had a seat between. One of the flight attendants was gonna accommodate us to be seated next to each other on the side with two seats only and my daughter was happy to be next to me. Another flight attendant comes after us and moves us to the middle where are 4 seats between the isles. I would recommend to ask what seats you are getting before boarding. I had picked two seats next to each other but in the meantime they sold the window seat to somebody else and moved me one seat away from my 9 year old daughter plus an isle between us. Will NEVER fly them again. I felt very uncomfortable and honestly like criminal while waiting for them to decide about my seating arrangements after paying additional $600 on the top of the regular fare. This was a flight from Paris to Montreal."
Cons: "I understand that it is the duty of the traveller to figure out the legalities but a little heads up about visa requirements would be nice. I did know I needed a document to transit Canada but their website is absolutely not straight forward in telling you what you need to do. I read there was an exempt till September 2016 and since I was flying before it, I thought I would be fine. While I understand it was my fault for not doing my research, it's the way the airline company handled the situation that incredibly frustrated me. There is no empathy or willingness to help a traveler about to embark on their journey, when they are told they can't board. I didn't know you needed a visa just to transit!! It's just stone cold responses and haughtiness. It's a new rule, cut me some slack! They just pushed me off to a partner airline and I was asked to pay 1500$ for a one way flight. I m getting very frustrated with airlines of late! Customer service sucks. There is no genuine empathy for a person in a bind. It's all about making money and getting you out of the line. I'm just disappointed."
Pros: "Cabin crews and the actual flight was an alright experience, it was the personnel on the ground."
Cons: "Lack of personnel in cdg for checking bags & rude personnel on the ground."
Pros: "The flight crew was pleasant and helpful, providing water throughout the flight."
Cons: "AirCanada did not schedule a long enough connection in Montreal. Procedures were not explained well, either. I had to run to my gate to make my connection because it took over an hour for my checked luggage to be approved so that I could go through Customs. I was not the only person who experienced this problem. Several people on my flight missed their connection, and several still waiting when I left were in danger of missing their connection. I have flown on other airlines through other cities internationally and never experienced this type of issue."
Pros: "Everything was professional. The pilots was awesome"
Pros: "Leg room was great"
Cons: "I was given someones special meal without knowing then the crew member kept saying to the girl behind me "I think she took it". I was embarrassed to be honest. The girl behind me ended up not eating her last meal because of this mistake lol"
Pros: "Food was fine, staff was professional, flight was quite."
Cons: "The lavatories were unacceptably filthy. There was a puddle on the floor in one of them: Disgusting!"
Pros: "Food good crew great."
Cons: "Cramped seats and full plane."
Pros: "The ease of boarding"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "All services and most of all excellent customer services."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was excellent and the liquor selection exceeded expectation. Very smooth flight."
Cons: "Didn't give us US customs forms, had to ask, only got one, had to ask again, and then rushed to fill them out and THEN customs threw them out and we had to do everything on the computer. I would think that the crew would be familiar with this process at their home airport and not waste our time. Also, no one could tell us if we would have to go through security again and if we could buy any liquids in Paris duty free to bring home due to the liquid rule and going through security. Just a wildly uninformed airline (asked our crew and other AC officials) they couldn't answer a few simple questions."
Pros: "Crew was good , space was fine"
Cons: "No wifi ?! I couldn't believe you can't buy wifi for the flight ..,"
Pros: "Price, international legs were good"
Cons: "Canadian domestic flight"
