Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Entertainment options were great crew was very friendly"
Cons: "Seat could be more comfortable"
Cons: "Service desk personnel at the gate were very helpful and attentive. The plane was only 1/2-2/3 full, which made boarding quicker. The food was tasty and coffee was great! We were also offered juice twice during the flight. Bathrooms were clean. Since the plane wasn't full, they weren't dirty even at the end of the flight. I brought my own headphones, but the stewards provided them if you need them. My one big complaint was that our seats did not recline, thus making any kind of shut-eye near impossible. Our plane left and hour late, but the pilots stepped on the gas and we got in on time!"
Cons: "The airline lost our bags!"
Pros: "Smooth and easy flight"
Cons: "Food and drinks served late"
Pros: "TSA in Philadelphia were very rude and aggressive. This is not Lufthansa's fault, but LH can at least pass on word that their passengers were hassled unnecessarily by TSA personnel."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "The flight was only about 1 hour. Everything ran smoothly once we took off. The crew was very good, providing gate information for connecting passengers."
Cons: "It would have been better if we had departed on time. I don't remember why there was a late departure but it made it difficult for some passengers to make their connecting flight. My husband and I hurried to the gate for our flight to Washington, DC but that flight left late, too."
Pros: "The crew was excellent"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "More leg room."
Pros: "smooth as silk flight, beautiful clean comfy airplane. Roomy seats. great entertainment system. Excellent friendly staff. Pretty darn good food. Excellent value."
Cons: "having to come back from vacation!!"
Pros: "Short flight with swift and effective service"
Cons: "The four hour delay which made me miss my conecting flight causing me to spend an entire day at the airport waiting for a available flight making me miss a portion of the travel tour I booked"
Cons: "Two flights same food... Too bad"
Pros: "The crew onboard the flight was very friendly and accommodating! They did their best with what they had. I also like that there were diabetic and vegetarian meals offered, although the diabetic meals should ideally focus on lower carbohydrate totals. Fruits and breads can pack just as much sugar as sweets."
Cons: "Starting with the boarding area at LAX, there was some really high pitched siren that kept going off over and over which no one seemed to care to investigate or do anything about. It was very irritating, and seemed to put lots of passengers in a bad mood before the plane even started boarding. Then when they announced boarding was beginning, everyone got up and created massed around creating four chaotic lines. It was a mess. We left 45 min late, which caused us to run to make our connecting flight because the person at the gate never told us it was also going to be leaving late. The plane itself was extremely uncomfortable as well. I'm 5'8" tall and that's mostly torso. I fit easily in the back seat of my buddy's mini Cooper, and I could barely fit in the space without my legs hitting the seat in front of me. That was before the guy in front of me put his seat back and made it so I could barely reach under my seat. Then there was the control panel for my personal video monitor. The panel was located on the armrest in just the right spot where Everytime I put my hand down I accidentally pressed a button to call the flight attendant, or turn the video screen on off, which was really obnoxious when I was trying to sleep and kept accidentally turning on the bright screen which woke me up. The video monitors we're also touch compatible, but the screen was horrible about registering finger presses which led to the lady in the seat behind me smashing the screen as hard as she could repeatedly with her finger, which vibrated all the was through my headrest so I could feel it as if she were trying to get my attention. There was also no air flow above the seats... You simply had to rely on the flight attendant to set a temperature that the whole cabin enjoyed, or you had to suffer silently. Finally, the reading lights on the plane we're so high up that turning one on lit up all the seats around you as well, which meant you had to choose to either sit in the dark and not read, or turn on your light and read quietly while the people around you cursed your name while attempting to get some rest."
Pros: "In the end I made the flight."
Cons: "Couldn’t add my baggage online thus resulting in a penalty for paying at the airport. Also ticket was booked by Kayak as a standby without alerting me."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive. It's clear they hire for people with high EQs."
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Media box under the seat in front of me so no room to put my carry on under the seat. Also, breakfast was skimpy. Some fruit and a muffin."
Cons: "seating is very cramped when the plane is full"
Pros: "I liked the food and the election of entertainment. I’m"
Pros: "Courteous staff, good in-flight entertainment, efficient boarding and deboarding, lots of space on the flight"
Pros: "Upgraded seats from PHL to FRA, which was great. Had a lot of legroom. Very nice staff, comfortable flight"
Cons: "Very small legroom from Frankfurt to Budapest. When you are 5’11 it’s hard to fly . The prices i have to pay all the time to upgrade only because I am tall is out of control. It adds hundreds to my flight cost when the prices are already high."
Pros: "Outstanding cabin crew."
Cons: "Mediocre food with totally inadequate available snacks between meal services. Inadequate meal before landing."
Pros: "Thanks for offering kosher!"
Cons: "Fish :("
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the flight was comfortable. And the food was very good."
Pros: "It was clean and it was on time."
Pros: "Very professional and nice crew. Clean and new planes."
Cons: "Flights are never on time, seats are extremely small and planes are very often full. Not enough storage for carry on."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with a very poorly set up e-mail. No alternative suggestions, no phone number where to call, nothing. Very unhelpful. When calling a phone number finally found on the internet there was a 40 min waiting loop, only to then have a very bored and annoyed sounding call attended who finally was able to rebook the flight. Overall very poor service, at the very least there should have been a guideline of what steps to take now in the cancelling of the flight E-mail and where to call."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "A little too warm for me."
Pros: "On time arrival"
Cons: "Very hot on the plane, food mediocre, flight attendants could be friendlier"
Pros: "Waiting area needs upgrade...40 minute flight, no time for food or entertainment..."
Cons: "I made seat reservation in the internet and the LH agent change it"
Pros: "The staff were really nice and professional"
Cons: "The seats we were in though lots of leg space the armrest were not reclining and after eight hours it got quite uncomfortable. Also my headphone jack was damaged but the staff made it right."
Cons: "-flight delays-no information provided-no information on gate changes-"
Pros: "General quality and competence."
Cons: "I find the seats in Economy rather uncomfortable (Premium Economy is way better, but too expensive for me)."
Pros: "Food and beverage service was excellent on these Star Allisnce international flights booked by United but operated by Lufthansa."
Cons: "Leg room in economy is inadequate for international flights. Seats had no cushion left in seat bottoms. It was like sitting on cement."
Pros: "Even the hot food was sweet."
Pros: "It was a short flight. Took off a few minutes late, but we made it to Frankfurt on time."
Cons: "Leg room is very tight. Boarding was chaotic and entertainment was non-existent."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours, for a reason they never made clear after they let the passengers wait in line for 45 minutes to board. Once aboard, the Lufthansa planes were much much less comfortable than the Air Canada plane I took to Frankfurt. There is very little space and the seats are crammed together. The food they served was very bad, especially again in comparison with Air Canada. Once we arrived in Toronto, they made us wait nearly an hour before exiting the aircraft. It would seem that the Toronto airport would have to know we were coming and should have prepared accordingly, but apparently not. We sat, several passengers missed their connecting flights and were angry. I nearly missed my flight, having to run and race through customs (who are in no hurry)."
Cons: "The flight was late for 2 hrs with no explanation"
Cons: "Announcement system sound quality so poor we couldn't hear the onboard announcements. Our flight attendant was not very friendly and he continued to address us in German even after he was aware that we were English-speaking (he spoke perfect English so that was not the problem). He didn't offer brandy to anyone on our aisle after dinner, even though I heard the attendants on other aisles offering it."
Pros: "nothing at all."
Cons: "There was 1 hour layout, but the plane was late. i was leaving the plane at the boarding time for my next flight. the gates very extremely far away from each other it took me 20 minutes to get from the original gate to the next one and i was running all the time. by the time i got there i had no place to store my carry on luggage anywhere despite the fact the storage compartments very occupied by small backpack which could easily be stored underneath seats. i asked a flight attended to help me but she answered she was not on duty and left (what the hell!!!) what was she doing on the plane then. i wound up with my luggage underneath the seat, my bag in my lap squeezed and extremely uncomfortable. overall one of the worst flights i have ever had. i was lucky it was only one hour long."
Pros: "The stewards were very prompt and polite. The food and wine were good"
Pros: "I liked the service on the long flight. Hot towels after a meal, wow! I would choose Lufthansa if we had an over sea flight again."
Cons: "I wish I could have slept better. Seats are small to sleep in."
Cons: "The check-in team at Austrian Air insisted I could only take on a single carry-on, even though I'd come with two. Should be one above and one below."
Pros: "Short flight. Not much to say."
Pros: "everything else was fine"
Cons: "the bathroom smell. they should have at least a good smelling soap, like lemonsoap.... the pasta was too overcooked."
Pros: "Good crew, ready to help and generous"
Cons: "Seats too small, room around seat too little, hit my knees on seat in front....OK for A 3 HOUR FLIGHT BUT NOT AN OVERNIGHT."

Pros: "It was a amazing experience!"
Cons: "It was uncomfortable trying to stretch out"

Pros: "Nice crew, good food."
Cons: "Both bathroom were not working in business class area."
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Cons: "Information on arrival time was not correct"
Cons: "Not being 1 hour late"
Pros: "Service is awesome. Food is great."
Cons: "People with short connection are affected by the 15 to 25 minutes delay."
Pros: "Checkin 1a at Schiphol had long lines, and no seperate counters for just bag drop. My family and I had to wait for 50 mins, to do a bag drop which in,y lasted 1 min! Flight was delayed, without proper announcements."
Cons: "Seat pitch could've been more. At least let us know via Whatsapp that the plane is delayed, or at which belt the bags would come out. This basic info was lacking."
Cons: "They left my bag off the plane. Ridiculous."
Pros: "Good for both."
Cons: "Bigger seats."
Pros: "The crew was great! The food was also much better than other airlines. And passing out whole bottles of water was much appreciated."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seat comfort"
Pros: "Amazing crew"
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"
Pros: "Seating is tight. The crew was great !"

Pros: "On time and friendly crew"
Cons: "Boarding needs improvement"
Pros: "Friendly and efficient crew. Flights were on time if not even early."
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Nice that wine was served without charge."
Cons: "Announcements from the cockpit were hard to hear. Food has been better in past."
Pros: "Very attentive crew. Attended to needs immediately. Took a lot of time with each person when someone had something to say."
Cons: "The seat I had with no seats in front of me was very small. Much smaller than the other economy seats because the tray table and video screen were in the armrests. Paid extra for the legroom by ended up losing it side to side. Really had to squeeze into the seat."
Pros: "Everything was clean and well organized."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "It would be helpful for short people to be able to adjust the head rest lower on the seat. More recent released movies would be helpful. More leg room. Not charging more money to choose seats."
Pros: "Easy to board and easy flight."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn’t working for the whole 10 hour flight."
Pros: "Due to lightening bolt strike our pre-Y2K era plane got switched out with a newer plane with modern media delivery at the seats."
Cons: "This caused a two hour delay in boarding and another 30 minutes on the JFK T4 tarmac. Same crappy headphones so it wasn’t the"
Pros: "Bording was good and general flight ok"
Cons: "This airplane must be the oldest in the fleet. No USB, no charging, no touchscreen technology, no plugs, no bluetooth."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""
Cons: "Headset jack only worked if the headset plug was in EXACTLY the right spot."
Cons: "Tiny old cramped plane."
Pros: "The last two times we connected in Amsterdam to Humberside our luggage was delayed. This time it wasn’t. The simple things give the greatest satisfaction"
Cons: "Old airplane with not really comfy seats. No outlets for charging devices. Very old entertainment screen."
Pros: "Equally friendly crew and experience. It was complimented by the time we got to spend in the fantastic KLM lounge while we waited for the flight."
Cons: "OLD OLD plane with hard seats and tiny screens"
Cons: "OLD plane without comfort or entertainment"
Pros: "The crew service is impeccable. Ground services very friendly and professional."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. The individual screens are simply outdated like you basically will damage your eyes looking at them. No chargers for phones."
Cons: "They didn’t let us board the plane. Allegedly the plane was changed and make us travel by train!! They offered us a compensation but we haven’t heard from them yet. Not good experience at all."
Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."
Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."
Pros: "Efficiency and speed of boarding was acceptable. I have no complaints about that aspect. The Comfort+ seats were worth the upgrade, pretty comfortable and reasonable legroom unless you have a big carry on stowed under the seat in front of you."
Cons: "The first announcement they made to all of us in the economy section was thay they did not have any headphones for anyone but business class. I was told when I booked the seat that the headphones would be complementary. So I did not bother to bring any assuming they were going to keep their word; I figure I'd make it work and watch a movie without sound. If that isn't bad enough midway through my nine hour flight my monitor went out and would not turn back on."
Pros: "Professional, friendly service. Punctual, safe flight. Comfortable, spotless airplane."
Cons: "What is there not to like about KLM? I cannot find anything."
Pros: "The cabin crew were fantastic and funny"
Cons: "Tiny seats"
Pros: "The staff and crew"
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Pros: "I have no complaints about the air crew. They where pleasant and attentive. Plenty of free entertainment. The food was good."
Cons: "my only complaint is the USB ports didn't work on any of the chairs that me and my family where assigned to."
Pros: "Friendliest economy class service I've ever encountered."
Pros: "Service was good"
Pros: "It's the best flight I could get for such a low price. But don't expect to to get the best and newest planes around but it's still overall a good experience."
Cons: "Quite bummed that the flight didn't have wifi / USB):"
Pros: "Flight was quick, professional, friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Poor food offerings, no entertainment, minimal leg room, rushed and cramped boarding process."
Pros: "Flight itself was very smooth, especially the landing. Food was good also, both the chicken and pasta were prepared well. Pasta could have used a little more sauce. Quantities and variety were also good."
Cons: "I still don't understand why airlines don't board from the back to the front. Would make the entire process go much smoother. The bigger the plane the bigger the problem and delay. I don't mind storing a bag under the seat but there's more stuff taking up legroom so it's hard to get the feet comfortable which is important for those longer flights."
Pros: "Crew were friendly"
Cons: "Poor entertainment - no individual TV screen or choice of entertainment. Food was very poor. We were 9 min late due to crew shortages."
Pros: "The crew was considerate in taking care of children with families and assigning new upgraded seats to those adults who were looking for sleep and quiet. They were also helpful in getting me a special gluten free meal even though I did not order it in advance."
Cons: "FLIGHT WAS CANCELED"
Pros: "The attendats are very helpful."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Attendants were cordial."
Cons: "No beverages offered in economy class. wish they would at least offer water."
Pros: "The crew did their best. They were efficient and polite, no complaints"
Cons: "First of all, it wasn’t British Airways, it was operated by American Airlines. The seats were cramped; just barely enough kneeroom and I’m only 5’10”. There were no monitors on the seat backs and no choice of entertainment, only monitors hanging from the ceiling. I suppose the airline assumes, probably correctly, that these days everybody has their own entertainment on laptop or tablet. The problem here, though, was that there were no charging plugs at the seats, so you’d better have a full battery when you get on and hope it lasts. Of course, I could have just read the inflight magazine, except that my reading light was broken. Food was decent for airline food."
Cons: "Delayed takeoff. Food lower quality than expected"
Pros: "Very friendly staff at the airport as well as on the plane. At AUA you still get complimentary food and drinks, but apart from that. BA is great!"
Cons: "In Vienna, we were picked up by bus, rather than walking through a gangway... but since I was sitting in the last row, it didn't bother me. I wasn't going to get out of the plane quickly anyway."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Long transit at Heathrow airport"
Pros: "Flight attendants were pleasant."
Cons: "no complimentary beverage service - maybe that’s common in Europe but as an American I was used to getting some kind of a drink."
Pros: "A good trip"
Pros: "The personnel were most helpful, pleasant, and reassuring when I discovered I had left something on the plane. It was found and returned to me quite promptly and my continued flight was rebooked with the minimum of fuss (and embarrassment). Everyone was wonderful."
Cons: "I am not a seasoned traveller. Checking for a small item (such as a passport) in the overhead compartment was not possible."
Pros: "Boarding and bathrooms"
Cons: "Crew was rude except for pilot greetings while boarding. They couldn’t even take cash for food nor provide a free snack or beverage."
Pros: "It was the same plane we flew into Philly from SF. Did not have to search for new gate"
Pros: "Crew was good, attentive, helpful, eager to accommodate. The tea cart sped past without alerting anybody as to what it was or that it wasn't going to come back but moments later another crew member came by and was very quick to return with a tea for me, which was nice of them. Other flight operators have had somewhat limited entertainment options, I was amazed by the range available."
Cons: "I was a little disappointed that in the video options, while it had he show Legion (something I'd been recommended by a friend recently), it was only the first 4 episodes instead of the complete 8, leaving a cliffhanger point in the story. Which was a bit of a shame."
Cons: "Seats cramped"
Cons: "I did not receive updates about gate changes or delays to my flight. I was lucky to have made it!"
Cons: "They don't even give you water without charge"
Pros: "The boarding was very good and the crew was very nice"
Cons: "There certainly should have been a snack on this longer flight"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "1) I was booked on the next available flight. This flight was delayed too. I was really exhausted, and tired of waiting. 2) The refreshment was only for purchase. I understand,that non of the domestic flights provide food but 1 nonalcoholic drink or water, and small pretzels or nuts are always offered free of charge, and additional refreshment is charged. Sad, this was not an option."
Cons: "You lost our bags..."
Cons: "The BA agent Giles, was rude and spoke to us condescending. His inept handling of rescheduling my family caused us to not only be split up in our flight from London to Vienna, but the majority of us had to wait 10 hours for the next flight. He could've rescheduled us together, but instead he ignored my sister's request to do so, rudely told us to get back in line, and rescheduled another family on the same flight as my sister, thus eliminating our seats together, and forcing her to travel alone."
Cons: "I thought I was supposed to get a free meal and was never offered that or even a complimentary beverage. The flight attendants allowed a group of four passenger to stand during almost the entire flight in the aisles and in my row, making it difficult for people to get around them and didn't allow for an enjoyable flying experience."
Pros: "Good food Welcoming and friendly flight attendants Amazing selection of movies, TV shows, games Excellent customer service Comfy seats with ample legroom"
Cons: "My seat did not recline at all. When notifying the flight attendants during the meal/beverage service, they said they would note down my seat. However, nobody ever gave me any assurances that they would really inform maintenance to resolve the problem. Half way through the flight, my screen froze. Nothing would start it up again. After waking up hours later, I informed the flight attendant and she was able to reset/restart my screen individually. Everything worked perfectly afterwards"
Cons: "There is more room in an economy seat on a commuter flight than there is on a 747. After this itinerary is complete I have no intention to ever fly with British Airways again."
Pros: "Everything was ok."
Pros: "Clean cabin and crew's friendly attitudes."
Cons: "Finally got it 20 mins before touch down but the cheese was still freezing cold! That's amazing! The crew would rather enjoying coffee and talking instead noticing the call for help. Coffee served with a loosing lid and ended up spilling out."
Cons: "Charging money even for a soda. Seriously so cheap."
Cons: "Lost luggage!!!"
Pros: "quite nice and friendly staff. many vacant seats and thus much space to seat comfortable"
Cons: "old airplane, kind of run down impression. annoying and not really working touchscreen, lousy choice of movies. Everything had the air of not being organized, we had to change our seats twice without knowing, why. Really poor food compared to any other airline I know. One of the stewards constantly spilled drops of beverages over me, when he was pouring them for me and the passengers around."
Cons: "Damaged suitcase"
Pros: "Have not flow BA in ages. The service was much better than recent US domestic carriers. Everyone tried to be helpful and the entire experience was much less like a "cattle car" than I was expecting."
Cons: "The crew was late which delayed our flight."
Pros: "My flight boarded easily,left on time."
Cons: "The food. Portions were made for a child. Nasty tasting. The ideal was throw gravy on it and it will taste alright. There's no effort at all. Asked stewardness. Twice for water and never got it."
Pros: "They opened the back door to exit as well as the front of the plane allowing people to get off quicker than waiting for one exit."
Cons: "Didn't receive food on flight. Wish there was entertainment. When boarding there were too many people crammed on trying to go in at once. If it was more spread out it would have been better."
Cons: "not enough room with the existing seating"
Pros: "Flight attendants and pilot very nice and informative."
Cons: "Very small seats in economy for an overseas flight, making it extremely difficult to get comfortable enough to sleep."
Pros: "Entertainment selections"
Cons: "Overbooking the seats. I ordered my tickets month ago. I didn't have a seat when I went to check in. I was the last person on the plane! Your online check-in isn't working and I didn't have a seat until the very last minute!"
Pros: "got there alive"
Cons: "booked British Airways, got American Airlines. I didnt want American airlines. I would have booked American Airlines if I wanted American airways. there was no indication that the flight would be operated by any other than British air until I got to the check counter at British airways, and they sent me to the excruciatingly long check in line for American."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly! Really impressed with this flight, crew and food"
Pros: "Plane was comfortable and the crew was helpful and friendly"
Pros: "Food was decent, toilets were plenty there"
Cons: "Tvs DIDN'T work for at least half of the passengers (horrible when flying for 7h hours!!!), flight attendants could be nicer, should at least serve drinks every hour (went for 3h without anything to drink!!), the seats shouldn't have the top coming out (my head was bent downwards the whole time, could not sleep For a second)"
Pros: "Plane boarded on time, left with a short delay, but arrived earlier."
Cons: "space in each seat is too limited in economy class. This is true in all airlines but nevertheless I think this can make an unbelievable difference. Eliminating power outlets in economy is really not good. There are people that need to work especially on long flights."
Pros: "Arrived ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Seat size; food quality, beverage quality and selection (beer/wine) and limiting complimentary alcoholic beverages to just one wine with dinner."
Pros: "Flight attendants were helpful, professional and friendly"
Cons: "Old plane, not in good shape; seat pocket broken, are rest controller did’t fit into arm rest properly, panel in bathroom held in place (kind of) with duct tape, no individual screen for movies."
Cons: "There was no inflight entertainment for such a long flight."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The delay and the seat comfort for purchasing the main cabin seats was not as expected."
Pros: "That it actually happen. Poor communications from British Airways and American Airlines."
Cons: "I was so disappointed as soon as I walked into the plane. It was very old plane and very dated. There was no entertainment center. It was a long flight with nothing to do. :( I will never fly with American Airlines to Europe again)"
Pros: "Nice crew, plane clean."
Pros: "Basic flight. Super uncomfortable seats. Older plane. Cramped. Pilot was great. Flight smooth."
Cons: "Got there safe!"
Cons: "2 of our screens didn’t have audio working so couldn’t watch movies :-(. - assistants rebooted the systems but that didn’t help :-("
Pros: "I really liked crew, fast boarding"
Cons: "Old airplane, very noisy , no tv screans on seats, boring movies on tv and horrible ear sets, could not hear anything. very dissapointed experience."
Pros: "The flight was on time, nice crew."
Cons: "Only pretzels and drink on a 2.5 hour flight."
Pros: "The availability of entertainment on board. The hot meal was good."
Cons: "The seats were cramped for such a long flight."
Cons: "Food Seats so tight"
Pros: "It was always a close call and almost missed my flight"

Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "My connecting flight from london arrived late and the crew made sure i made it onto the flight to stl even though I barely made it to the gate on time."
Cons: "The Crew Tried to take us from our seats so they could sleep in our seats. They tried to relocate us to the last row where the seats don't recline.they were very abusive and rude, we have it all on a body Cam and we'll lodge formal charges against American Airlines once we return to the States. Worse Trip EVER."
Cons: "Only half the crew worked"
Pros: "Didn’t expect a hot dinner or a breffy, so that was nice!"
Cons: "Felt crowded for such a long flight, but the flight crew was great."
Pros: "Empty seat by side"
Cons: "Overhead light not working TV screen not working Very average food"
Pros: "Crew was good, seats comfortable"
Cons: "my entertainment system headset plug was broken and didn't work - a problem for such a long flight!"
Pros: "Having more room for our seats to get comfortable and that we had a dinner that was served. Was not expecting that"
Pros: "Good legroom, nice crew, temperature was comfortable, arrived ahead of schedule even though we sat on the departure tarmac for at least 30 min after we left the gate."
Cons: "Sitting on the tarmac and no individual screens on one flight."
Pros: "No problems. Everything was smooth"
Cons: "Took 35 min to move from the gate with everyone buckled in."
Pros: "How nice the landing was. And how really sort it was"
Pros: "Flight attendants actually seemed to care about what they were doing. Seats were pretty comfy for once."
Cons: "Flight delayed with no explanation or apologies. Putting two and two together from the airport monitors it looks like they had to swap planes due to a scheduling or maintenance issue. Just another chapter in the neverending saga of delayed American airlines flights"
Pros: "Things went very smoothly."
Cons: "Long layover"
Pros: "We arrived safely and so did our luggage."
Cons: "PHL-Lisbon plane left 3 hours late due to CATERING problem. Seats were uncomfortable and food was awful. Lights and entertainment controls at my seat didn’t work."
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 was better than other international flights I’ve been on."
Cons: "A “broken plane?” Are you kidding me? This was the explanation for a 3 hour delay. A European connection should have either rigorous maintenance routine and/or records or there should be planes ready to fill a unexpected need."
Pros: "Boarding, comfortable seats, clean"
Cons: "Mediocre service, choice of food was down to one option (and I was on the 2nd row)"
Pros: "Crew was great, and flight was relatively on time."
Cons: "Itinerary I received was for British Airways, with whom I have always had excellent experiences. However, I discovered at check-in I would actually be traveling on American Airlines with a different flight no. I had already provided my BA flight numbers to family. No explanation was give to me prior to flight that this would be the case. Food was terrible- even for Coach class - I don't always expect a gourmet meal, but BA was consistently good in the past, so I had positive expectations. My personal entertainment system did not work properly so I could not use it."
Pros: "Much more room in seats than expected"
Pros: "Good seats with a bit more room than most planes. Very good staff onboard."
Pros: "When i got off the plane"
Cons: "Food was worse than prison food. It was a full flight and my entertainment screen did not work for half the flight from phl to man. Several times i was told its bein reset over the hours. Every other screen seemed to be working. I paid $1600 for this flight as it was booked a week beforhand as my mother got really sick and needed to be here. Honestly, never again. Over priced,horrible food and no workin tv. Expect more for the price. Will be my last time using them after years of doin so"
Cons: "Nothing. It was cancelled with little to none explanation"
Cons: "Outdated airplanes"
Cons: "I paid $20,for the in flight Internet and it didn't work. Neither did my monitor."
Pros: "When our flight was delayed in Denver the agent at the check in gate worked very hard to get our flight plans changed with as little impact as possible."
Cons: "We understand that delays happen but due to a delay on American Airlines we have lost our luggage and it doesn't seem likely it will be returned. We had five pieces of luggage lost during our flight from the U.S. to Spain. When we arrived in Madrid we were told that all five pieces had been located. When we went to pick them up the next day there were only four pieces at the airport. We were told the fifth suitcase would be delivered when it was located. It's ten days later and there's no sign of the luggage. It has taken multiple phone calls to get the information about the luggage correct. They assure me that they have everything correctly documented and then when I call back they haven't changed a thing. It has been a very frustrating process overall."
Pros: "There were empty seats close to me, so that was great. The food was pretty good and it was nice that the wine was free."
Cons: "The screen on the back of the seat in front of me did not work well at all so it was difficult to watch movies. (I had to press multiple times to change the screen from one display to another.)"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and provided sufficient food and drinks. Plane was late."
Cons: "The plane was late. Took a long time to turn over and the seats were not very comfortable. This was a flight operated by American Airlines"
Pros: "Food and crew were excellent. In flight entertainment vast."
Cons: "Seats were terribly uncomfortable. I was sandwiched between two men in an aisle seat of 4 and our arms were bumping into each other the whole time because the seats were smaller than the people. It was the most back and lower lumbar discomfort I've had."
Cons: "Plane needed to be updated. CRT TVs still? More space in seating for such a long duration flight. Head rests that don't rise more than a few centimeter. What's the point then?"
Pros: "I had never flown coach and decided to try it at a ridiculously low price. It was fine. I slept well and the service was above expectation for Coach"
Cons: "It was difficult to get to the rest room because it was a full flight"
Pros: "Another great flight. On our plane the entertainment was free and I was able to watch a lot of movies. We even landed early"

Pros: "Flight on time. Crew were pleasant."

Cons: "They never called for groups, except 1st class. After they boarded it was a free for all. Wasn't allowed to check in online, had to wait until I got to airport.The seats just keep getting smaller and smaller. The microwaved tv dinner they served was horrible. Someone pooped on the bathroom floor."
Cons: "Cramped seats. No IFE. Chaotic boarding. Luggage missed flight."
Pros: "Everything was perfect! The crew always ready to serve us!"
Cons: "Perhaps, update media features! A small corner for children to keep them "busy"."
Pros: "Movies I could plug in and go to sleep"
Cons: "Being woke up and asked if I want something to eat. I am sure others would disagree but I was exhausted and could not go back to sleep and I had already been up 30 hours."
Cons: "The flight and crew were very good. An hour late taking off with not explanation. Frustrating on an hour flight."
Cons: "I didn’t fly out of Philadelphia because the flight was 5 hrs late and I missed my connecting flight. Had to go get my luggage, go home and try to fly today! Terrible! All my plans screwed up!"
Pros: "The Air Canada Rouge crew was young, efficient & courteous; seats were good; and it was the only direct flight that I can get that day, at a convenient time during the daytime."

Pros: "Great service, and no issues to report."
Cons: "OK, I get it, so they're not Southwest, I can't get credit on a future flight. But what's the advantage of giving me NO benefit for cancelling? I just didn't show up and they had a surprise empty seat at the last minute. Who wins?"

Cons: "Entertainment system did not work for the first two hours"
Pros: "Service of staff"
Cons: "Lost my baggage and all of my flights where late causing me to miss one of my connections"
Pros: "Very confusing. United personnel running Air Canada ground operations. Took 30 plus minutes to check one bag because there were not enough staff checking passengers in. Then flight was supposed to be delayed 90 minutes. This meant missing connections so automatic rebooking took place. Flight was then not delayed and had to rebook on original flight. Naturally bag didn't make the trip."

Cons: "all was great"
Pros: "Check in agent let us check out carry on without a fee. (Plane was fully booked)"
Cons: "Air waitress wouldn't let me use the front bathroom even though the back one was blocked by the beverage cart. Flight attendants didn't answer my call button when it was on for over 20 minutes. Yes I turned it off and on again. When she finally came by she just turned it off and walked away. Just wanted a glass of water. Initially didn't serve a glass with my bottle of wine."

Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Non-working lavatories (?). It shouldn't happen."
Cons: "There was a yappy dog on the flight which the owner kept outside of the kennel for much of the flight. This is a serious security and health safety breach.
