It would recline on its own which caused constant adjustment throughout the flight."

Pros: "Friendly crew, boarding on time, leaving and arriving on time, well maintained planes, clean."
Cons: "The seats were so close to each-other that you can't even get in or out without a big effort. I am not a large person, but I am pretty tall. Fro someone over 6 feet tall, the seats are like a torture chamber."

Pros: "the food and service was outstanding as always on Turkish Airlines"
Cons: "The seats were incredibly Uncomfortable, and I was in Business Class. It seemed to be a newer plane. The seat was like sitting on a bench, not in a seat, and the distance between rows was almost non-existant; it was very distressing and disappointing...."

Cons: "Very poor boarding conditions. The board only said "proceed to gate". Once at the gate, there was not one single boarding announcement. People next to the representatives started to get up and everyone else followed."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "istanbole airport there was no seat for sit."

Pros: "I enjoyed the flight!"
Cons: "Not applicable"

Pros: "I really enjoyed the food and the entertainment. this was the best international flight I have taken so far."
Cons: "check in time was to long."

Pros: "The best airline to Europe! Period! Boing in the new 777 and has very comfortable seats with plenty of room for your feet even in economy class. Huge number of movies and TV shows. The food is excellent. Only missing part is to have some candies or chocolates for the 13 hour trip for San Francisco to Istanbul. You can not beat their price. Crew is very friendly and helpful at the same time. Slippers and socks they give you in economy class + cotton blanket of course make you feel you are 1st class traveler. What else? You name it and it is there. Will fly again with Turkish airlines."

Pros: "In economy class,was the best space and service I experienced so far! I was surprised by the level of service!"

Cons: "No priority boarding for business class in Istanbul."

Pros: "The flight was smooth"
Cons: "They had rotten food and didn't even tell us when serving would begin. Also they lost our luggage in spite of having our tag #. How does an airline not put a tag on a bag and give a bagage tag to a customer. ?? And after going on a cruise with one Carry on and everything Lost they don't even give us an allowance or a normal kit for toiletries and no one answers our questions. All the calls go to the call center that has no idea about how to track a bag. There are no managers to help and the customer service stinks"

Pros: "Food was great. Crew was awesome. Quick boarding."
Cons: "It was very hot on the plane for the majority of the flight."

Pros: "The food was delicious."
Cons: "The wait times were ridiculous and always off schedule. From the beginning of the trio to the end of the trio there was consitency in going off schedule and being forced to stand in lines for hours. I would not fly Turkish again."

Pros: "Food and service were excellent. And great staff!"

Pros: "Exellent"
Cons: "All good"

Pros: "I like the movies"
Cons: "boarding should be handled better than what i saw at Istanbul. a man checking every ticket manually which cause many long line and waiting to get to the bas"

Pros: "food"
Cons: "the worst costumer service ever"

Cons: "Return flight from Delhi to Istanbul to Houston cancelled on Jan 8 2017 due to bad weather in Istanbul. Extremely poor to non-existent process in communicating and rerouting passengers. Frustrating to me and monumental time loss for business travellers like me."

Cons: "I was supposed to be given two boarding passes through my check-in but I was given only one. This caused a lot of confusion on the Istanbul Airport. The staff there we unbelievably rude. They caused two passengers (on separate occasions) to miss their flight right in front of my eyes due to no apparent reason. They plainly refused to cooperate with passengers."

Pros: "If you are flying Turkish from the US or from Istanbul to the US or other far away destination, for the love of God, do not fly on the B777-300. Did that twice from Chicago to Istanbul and back, and the seats in economy are a real killer....very tight and uncomfortable. On the other hand, if you have a choice of Turkish aircrafts b777 vs AB330-300, you will do yourself a favor by selecting a flight on an AB330-300. Slighter smaller plane then the 777 but a little more comfortable in coach. So you are warned......and by the way, you will select a two seater combination rather than being stuck in the middle.....If you are stuck in the middle, always do your best to get at least an isle seat."
Cons: "Turkish Airbus 330-300 Loved a little more leg room in economy. Also the FA very really on their feet and eager to help. Always with a smile on their faces. I would recomand flying Turkish overseas but only on an AB 330-300 coach configuration."

Pros: "I like that two meals were served, beverages were available as well as snack throughout the flight. Each seat had its own television and option to watch a movie, TV show, or listen to music."
Cons: "There were too many announcements being made when they could've combined them. It was disrupting to those watching or listening to something."

Pros: "Selection of movies and other entertainment options"
Cons: "The distance between seats is pretty small. It was very uncomfortable 11 hours flight for a 6 foot tall individual. On our flight back I called flight attendant several times, however no one came and each time "call attendant" light was turned off remotely."

Pros: "Food, entertainment wery friendly staff"
Cons: "It was to hot in the airplane"

Pros: "It was nice to receive a meal on such a short flight."

Pros: "Friendliness toward kids was really good."
Cons: "The movies didn't work until an hour after the flight started. Really."

Pros: "Very nice crew!"
Cons: "Very hot in the plane"

Pros: "Punctuallity"

Pros: "All the movie options, the great food, the great service, and the timeliness of arrival."
Cons: "Nothing, it was great!"

Pros: "flight was not overcrowded, allowing space for more comfort; clean lavatory, good food/drink, friendly staff"
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "Economy class seats were comfortable and had more recline than most airlines."
Cons: "I didn't understand why it took us so long to board and take off. The weather was fine; no explanation was offered for our 90-minute delay in takeoff. This delay caused me and many others to miss connections in Istanbul. Also, the transfer process in Istanbul was very confusing; I was given wrong directions and waited twice in the wrong place before I found the right line to wait in."

Pros: "This was my first time flying with Turkish Airlines, and I had a great experience. I travel internationally a lot and it has been by far the best airline I have been onl."
Cons: "Nothing. All good"

Cons: "The air bus that we flew on from Rome to Istanbul was not as comfortable as the plane we were on for the leg from Istanbul to Chicago."

Pros: "Not much"

Cons: "Food disaster always same Organisations very bad"

Cons: "All good"

Pros: "Precautions taken appropriate"
Cons: "Environmental controls, it was a little warm. Seats seemed more uncomfortable than usual. Air vents, lights, too far from aisle seats."

Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Get us off plane. Been stuck at gate in plane for over an hour."

Cons: "No hubo comida suficiente"

Pros: "The crew was pleasant and professional. The on-board entertainment was excellent and the seats were actually comfortable. I was provided the option to use any restroom by the crew without regard to my seating location."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind."

Cons: "DTW to FLL, plane was delayed coming from BOS to DTW 5 hours for BOS weather. The plane arrived & they announced they would turn it around ASAP. They started the boarding process & then stopped it stating that a crew member had timed out. Delayed hour to FIND one. Shortly after delayed overnight."

Pros: "Entertainment was awesome. Although airlines are stingy with snacks, Delta had a good overall selection and very generous."
Cons: "Something that cant be changed overnight, however, there should be a little more Aisle space for folks pass through as my shoulder was getting beat up after every passing person and cart."

Pros: "The plane left on time and arrived early."
Cons: "Horrible boarding experience. We were not offered a choice of seats when we checked in and had to wait at the gat"

Cons: "It was lovely. It was my flight from nyc to dc that was terrible."

Pros: "Flight attendants were very friendly."

Pros: "The plane and flight was fine, as was the crew on board. The crew within the Salt Lake airport could have been better. Not sure if it was the gentlemans first time but overall he and the woman working the boarding were very slow and could have been more efficient. We boarded late (may be out of their control) but when we started boarding there was too much wasted time between calling up the military/people with longer boarding needs/wheelchairs etc. They waited until they were completely boarded and settled prior to calling the next group then spent time fiddling with the sign that splits the boarding lanes etc. Just appeared that there was no sense of efficiency. Polite people though."

Pros: "On the fight back I had enough space; good service; fine food. Great trip. On the way to Amsterdam, I sat next to a very overweight woman and her body hung over my seat. I couldn't move around enough and I ended up with a trigger point problem which immobilized me for 3 days and kept me from sleeping at night. It was very disappointing, since this was a family visit trip."
Cons: "See above!"

Pros: "On time and helpful staff."
Cons: "Very cramped seating."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "WiFi never connects food"

Pros: "Internet, seat."
Cons: "Tv screen, sound ."

Pros: "Crew was good, plane was clean."
Cons: "Don't like the Comfort plus seats that have the dividers vs basic arm rests."

Pros: "With all the competition among airlines and the cutbacks we suffer as customers Delta manages to make you feel like you matter still. Timely boarding, actual help with finding seats making boarding efficient (not just hurrying you along), updates from the cockpit that you could hear and understand, multiple choices in snacks-one even a healthy option, staff that was friendly and interested in making it a good experience not one that seemed bothered they had to work."

Cons: "My flight was delayed, which would have caused me to miss my connecting flight. The customer service person was not at all helpful, and told me there were no other flights available on any airline until the next day. However, I was able to go online and book another flight immediately...which means that she was either being disingenuous or actively undermining efforts to get me home in a timely fashion. Very disappointing and as a SkyMiles member would have thought there would be some level of common courtesy dealing with a non-weather related delay that drastically impacted my travel plans."

Pros: "It was a pleasant experience. The crew were very friendly and professional. Their entertainment system and movies etc on-board was very good. Food was great too"
Cons: "Nothing really. A bit more leg room perhaps. It seems delay flights have the shortest leg room when compared to other airlines."

Pros: "Excellent very good"
Cons: "Good service excellent"

Pros: "The crew was super friendly and shout out to Brady, he really helped me out of a TIGHT situation :-)"
Cons: "Felt bad for the crew being under pressure as they got off a flight and had to rush to ours....."

Pros: "Overall experience was great, landing, crew, snacks, movie selections it all was great"

Pros: "I like that I had a window seat with enough space to stretch my legs and look at the view."
Cons: "I was shy about 45 min of boarding my flight. I didn't want to do self check out because I wanted to make sure my Itinerary was right so I went to a clerk. She did my boarding pass by verifying who I was and by my Id and printed out. I then go to security they asked for my Id and boarding pass. I gave it to them and she was like Ingrad is not your name doesn't match your ID. I said no it doesn't your going to have to go back up and get my boarding pass redone again. I was Furious and frustrated because I didn't want to miss my flight over a mix up from one of your Clerks and at the time she never asked me if I wanted a window seat or not . This made for a bad experience going to Atlanta but I was grateful that I didn't miss my flight."

Pros: "Got to destination safely and on time"
Cons: "Rude flight attendant, tight seats"

Pros: "Free snacks and beverages. Easy boarding and easy de-boarding. Comfortable seats, friendly crew, large-ish bathrooms."
Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "The plane was new and very comfortable. Free entertainment and plug for charging electronics. Love this airline!"

Pros: "Good customer service"

Pros: "Terrible customer service both on the phone before the flight, but Especially from the gate agent. Wow she was really horrible."
Cons: "The flight attendants on board were good! They helped get everything straight. Easily could have been handled by the incompetent gate agent. Wow."

Cons: "Could not get the boarding pass to print at the self serve kiosk. Had to wait in line for assistance."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by almost 2 hours and caused me to miss my connecting flight. Next available flight was a 6 hour layover that I was not expecting."

Pros: "Seats and crew were fabulous and the flight itself was very smooth ."
Cons: "This particular plane had no entertainment system whatsoever, big disappointment."

Pros: "Not crowded. Short flight."

Pros: "Late delay notification"
Cons: "Called the airline directly to verify the status of flight within 24hrs and everything was on schedule according to them. Even tho the airport at San Juan have not night arrivals due to the effects of Hurricane Maria, and on previous days the same flight had been moved to a morning schedule for that reason. I was notified of the delay within hours of departure of the connecting flight."

Pros: "Flight was comfortable. Short, sweet, and landed before I knew it. Boarding was a smooth process."
Cons: "The flight crew and service on the plane was fine. My biggest complaint was at the baggage drop off at the airport, where there was quite a long line without any crew members assisting us. A five to ten minute wait is fine, but a fifteen minute wait, with only three crew members compared to the other airlines? By the time I dropped off my baggage, the other airlines were finished with their customers, and there was still quite a line behind me."

Pros: "Seats are comfortable. These short haul flights often have worn out, painful seats."
Cons: "They do a bad job of screening people with bags too large for the overhead bins and then those people have to check one they have already tried to board and it slow things down."

Cons: "Every flight was 100% full. Inadequate overhead space. I felt I was being herded like cattle. It is NOT a pleasurable experience flying with Delta."

Cons: "I liked it all"

Pros: "The boarding agents were especially helpful and friendly to my disabled wife, travelling in a wheelchair."

Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "No A/C on the flight. Good thing it was a short one... Crew seemed rather green. Oversold flight; we were the last to board."

Pros: "Everything was just as I have come to expect -- efficient, polite, and courteous crewe"

Cons: "Undersized overhead bins so ALL carry-on rollerbags had to be checked."

Cons: "Plane was hot but that seems common for these small planes during the summer."

Pros: "Pleasant staff on board, great pilot for getting us through some horrific turbulence."
Cons: "Delayed 2 hours. Worst turbulence of my life. Long time flyer but never experienced anything like that."

Cons: "Waited on tarmac at Laguardia more than 45 minutes after landing for gate to open up."

Pros: "Got on earlier flight as standby."

Pros: "Everything was smooth from start to finish, and the flight landed 10 min. early! Can't ask for more!"

Cons: "Ended up stuck at Laguardia for 9 hours, tried to get onto earlier flight and wasn't able to because as I arrived as the jet bridge door was closing. The delta crew was pleasant, but I sat at the terminal watching to see how quickly that plane would back out to depart.... it sat there for another 45 mins, while I sat there wishing I was on it. My later/original flight ended up being delayed multiple times (not due to weather) and given no explanation for why."

Cons: "after reaching the destination, it took a lot to open the airplane's doors and letting people out"

Pros: "Seamless uneventful flight."

Cons: "Flight got cancelled"

Pros: "La ponctualité."
Cons: "Variété des boissons proposées."

Pros: "Good aircraft, good service, on time, eventless"
Cons: "There are two types of foot-rests, both are a nuisance for people with long legs. The one popping up from below one's seat is extremely hard to put back in place. The metallic one folding down from under the seat in front cannot be secured back and is always in the way if the passenger needs to stretch his/her legs. This seems to be a new appliance, and I jut wish they would do away with it altogether. More is not necessarily better."

Cons: "This airline charges for everything, and after you pay once, they try to charge you again, and again, and again (four different people tried to charge me 4 different times for my two checked bags). And they lost the record of my payment, so I had to show 4 times the Amex receipt showing that I had paid before. It took 45 minutes and 4 non receptive agents for me to get my luggage checked. British Airways is significantly better."

Pros: "Na"
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."

Cons: "Very cramped seat on the TGV train. I will definitely choose and pay a seat on my own next time, rather than accepting the on picked by Air France... And it will be cheaper, too!"

Pros: "The entire experience was amazing that gives me a broader scope to choose from when selecting flights to Europe. The most amazing part was the attentiveness of the staff. Exemplary!!!!!"
Cons: "For me this part is not applicable"

Cons: "Our request for vegetarian meals got lost after a glight was cancelled."

Cons: "Crew on the ground was very rude"

Pros: "Great newer plane, great service!"

Pros: "The comfort of the flight snd kindness of the crew."
Cons: "My connecting flight to san francisco was through Delta, which it was on a different terminal, I had to carry my luggage out of the airport in order to get to delta’s terminal - the buildings are not connected."

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Seat"

Cons: "Placed in last row w/ non-reclining seats, even though bought tix 7 months early. We travel w/ only carry-on bags. AF allows 35 kg each but only 12 kg in cabin. I asked, online, twice, if we could have a couple of extra kg for hand pieces. Rec’d only auto. luggage policy. Forced to check both bags."

Cons: "boarding wasn't good."

Cons: "The food was mediocre. Flying La Compagnie in the past was a much better food experience."

Cons: "More chose in meals. I flew to and from within a week. All I had were chicken, chicken and chicken for snack too."

Cons: "Two hour delay meant we missed our connection. Then given a very late flight and had to haggle for ages to get earlier flight and told we should pay extra for it!"

Pros: "Short flight so I can't really complain. It was no frills, standard small aircraft with no high tech entertainment system. Seats were fairly comfortable"

Pros: "The Air France service was ok. Got me to my destination on time and alive."
Cons: "I flew out on KLM on what felt like a new plane. Amazing service, seat, temperature, entertainment and food. In stark comparison Air France’s plane was old, too hot, poor entertainment choices and system and average food which for the French was surprising!"

Pros: "The cabin crew was super patient and accommodating of the passengers."
Cons: "Cramped quarters"

Cons: "My luggage was lost in Paris. Now I need to wait still."

Pros: "Modern aircraft with power, big screens etc"
Cons: "Teenage crew, poor service (not even water brought on request, all "self service" at back of flight, and not being allowed a second drink with dinner), poor language skills (crew not very helpful when 2 hour delay meant I could miss connecting flight, suggesting I "walk fast")."

Pros: "Quiet! No noise-canceling earphones needed. Delicious food."

Pros: "Boarding this large plane went relatively quickly and orderly."
Cons: "Seats were tight and got a bit uncomfortable. This was a long flight. Could use a much better cushion."

Pros: "The free glass of red wine when the plane finally took off."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. We were told that it was just a half an hour delay by the man that was informing us of the delay and then we were then told by a woman that it was going to be over an hour. We weren’t told any specifics of why the plane was delayed, other than: “ the engineers are looking at the issue now”. We received messages saying that the flight was cancelled but then we were told to ignore that. We were told that we would have an update every 10-15 minutes but by the time we had the next update was 1 hours later, we were told that the plane will depart at 15:50- which we did. But we also sat on the plane for an extra 2 hours or maybe even more (couldn’t bare watching the time at this point) because the man that was supposed to push the plane backwards in order to reverse the plane didn’t turn up so we then had to wait for all of the other planes to take off before we could. Eventually the plane set off at 18:20 and I got in France 19:30-20:00 ish?"

Pros: "It was quick, very good space in premium economy. Good and friendly service. The food was better than expected"
Cons: "The crew did not announce the score of soccer cup semi final between Belgium and France"

Pros: "Comfort, food and service are better than average."
Cons: "When stewardess opened overhead locker, something fell on my head."

Pros: "The food was pretty good and the staff were friendly. During our transfer in Paris, my mum had a medical emergency and had to go to the medical centre. As such wr couldnt go to our final destination in Morocco and had to get our luggage off the plane. The staff at the AF counter were very helpful in that aspect. And when one of the luggages was completely damaged, it was replaced it with a brand new one which was fantastic. On the way back, we had some issues with the ticket because we didnt go to Morocco as planned which resulted in some trouble checking in. But the staff at the counter were quite helpful."

Pros: "The fresh bread and cheese."
Cons: "The staff is very unprofessional in receiving the passengers and serving the drinks mainly. The luggage wasn’t received and after 24 hrs no news about it! It’s a shame"

Pros: "The cheese and the bread"
Cons: "The unprofessional staff during boarding and food serving"

Pros: "Crew was professional and friendly. Plane was clean. And food was served quickly without the hassle of ordering from a menu and paying. And it was delicious. Best airline food I’ve had in a long time. The chocolate dessert was incredible. And a coffee to go with it. Made a three hour flight very pleasant."
Cons: "All airlines need to remove a row of seats and give everyone just a bit more legroom."

Pros: "Hospitality of the flight attendants"
Cons: "Toilets could hv been cleaned more often"

Pros: "Whenever I travel air France I get a reminder of what customer service looks like on a flight. Incredible crew, great experience"

Pros: "Crew very professional and nice food Boarding process well organized"
Cons: "Poor seat comfort in business class and no entertainment for a flight lasting more than 1h"

Pros: "The price 50€ cheaper than the other operators. Quick flight. Kind crew."
Cons: "Lack organisation for checking. No difference if you have done the checking online. No breakfast on a 7am flight though included in the price."

Pros: "Good service all around, personnel pleasant"
Cons: "Very difficult to find where to register with the flight but this is more tied to the way things are run by the airport"

Pros: "The crew is great, with their typical slightly humourous and casual French attitude. Great collection of international quality movies."
Cons: "Average and disappointing sitting space. The vegan lacto-ovo meal is disappointing."

Pros: "The crew nice people, boarding was fast and pleasant, the flight was pretty good"
Cons: "nA"

Pros: "All crew I interacted with was great, friendly, and helpful."
Cons: "Flight was late. Boarding very slow. Entertainment was ok by today's standards. Each seat had a display, but movie selection was not great. For a French airline I was looking forward to breakfast -- maybe some nice pastries or at least a decent croissant with jam. None such. It was disappointing. Meals were not impressive either, but the complimentary wine was good. I did not find the seats comfortable."

Pros: "The flight crew was excellent. My husband and I flew economy and I saw the crew keep passengers well fed (several meals and snacks) and were attentive to everyone's needs and all done with a smile. I thought the hot towels for cleansing our hands before meals was a very nice touch!"

Cons: "Too crowded"

Cons: "delay for one hour with not even a glass of water very old plan video with tiny screens and bad resolution food quality especially bread is not good"

Pros: "The food was good, the staff was very friendly and very nice,"
Cons: "The seat configuration in economy is unacceptable, the leg room is terrible and overall a very uncomfortable flight of more than 7 hours"

Pros: "The service provided by Jet and Air France was excellent. The wheelchair service did help very much"

Pros: "I didn't feel cramped in a Window Seat. Two meals were served during the flight. It was nice to get back to being fed something other than skippy snacks on an airline flight."
Cons: "I was ignored over and over again as ice cream, drinks and snacks were offer by the crew. It would have been nice if some would ask me before falling asleep if I wanted to be roused for snacks and desserts. After being on back to back flights of more than 10 hours each it would be considerate for the crew to be aware of my length of travel and to make sure they don't assume my resting my eyes is the same as me being asleep. Even when I was awake it appeared I was being overlooked, ignored and left out of complimentary services I saw other receiving....my bad for not asking to be noticed."

Pros: "quick flight 10 min ahead schedule"

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No entertainment or usb plugsto charge."

Pros: "This plane was the nicest plane I had ever been on. Very comfortable and the entertainment was amazing!"
Cons: "Airplane food is airplane food I guess."

Cons: "Disorganised boarding with people allowed to bring on multiple and oversize bags that by the airlines own admission delayed departure"

Pros: "The attentiveness of the crew and the online check in."
Cons: "Missed the connecting flight and the luggage was on transferred on our next conncection :("

Cons: "2h delay for "crew reasons" TV had only 7 of the 22 channels with reception"

Pros: "Plane wasn’t full and left and arrived early!"
Cons: "Offering some kind of beverage"

Cons: "IFE was not streaming movies, WiFi on but not loading"

Pros: "The touch screens had lots of movie options, which was nice."
Cons: "The crew wasn’t friendly and the seats are crazy narrow"

Cons: "A bigger plane."

Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "WiFi on both ways was not working"

Cons: "Baggage handler lost my bag, grabbed it off plane cabin, never found"

Cons: "Honestly? Not much could have been worse. Long delays, rude employees, lost bag with no help at all a day later. Say on tarmac for 2 hours with no AC. A piece of the plane fell off onto me the flight attendant did zero I’ve also had some shining star experiences but this flight wasn’t one of them."

Pros: "Crew was fine but you can’t hear anything they are saying over intercom"
Cons: "Plane was late getting to gate then lightning kept luggage from being taken off and put on and on top of continued lightning, plane was 1 hr plus late getting out"

Cons: "The communication on the actual flight could have been better. The flight from Houston to Charlotte was not very informative as in weather conditions, traffic, or the time in which we landed was not gone over."

Cons: "Great flight"

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "We experienced flight delays, lots of turbulence, and my knees were pressed up against the seat in front of me the whole duration of the flight. They also overbooked the flight, so some people had to take a flight the following day."

Cons: "Flight currently delayed 3 hours! No help booking another flight or compensation or way of getting back to NYC in time."

Pros: "Crew was great. Seats could be a bit wider"

Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "Easier option for entertainment."

Cons: "Flight delayed, interior of aircraft was deteriorating"

Cons: "Breakfast was lousy"

Pros: "Arrived on time despite late departure"
Cons: "Bumpy ride in CLT but uncontrollable"

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: "WiFi was on the flight. Free with TMobile."
Cons: "Easy and fast flight"

Cons: "I was stranded at the airport for hours until getting a last minute flight to Palm Springs which was 2 hours further from where I was originally headed and had to have my ride drive all the way down there to pick me up, not happy!"

Pros: "Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "No entertainment so 1 star rating. Kind passenger switched seats so I could sit with my husband and son. Would have had to sit behind them if not for her. Paying extra for isle seats was a surprise."

Cons: "Wish they had told me there was a shuttle to other side of airport. Had not been to this airport in many years."

Pros: "Service was one of the best I have received for an airline."

Pros: "We arrived on time."
Cons: "These planes feel like they are made of Legos. They are absurdly tiny and uncomfortable (and I am a small woman). Hot and stinky when boarding and no room for you or your carry on luggage. The days of glamorous air travel seem very far away."

Pros: "Uncertain why there are 9 boarding groups, seems to be excessive/confusing."

Pros: "Said it all above"
Cons: "Said it all above"

Pros: "Other passengers were friendly?"
Cons: "I was traveling alone with my tired, cranky 13 month old. I get that it's no fun for anyone, including me, to have a tired toddler on the flight! But from the moment we boarded the flight attendant was unfriendly and unhelpful. I asked for help putting a heavy bag in the overhead compartment. She half-heartedly tried and then told me it "didn't fit". By simply turning it on its side, I was able to easily make it fit, but it was uncomfortable for me to have to do so while also holding my baby! The flight attendant then commented that I couldn't have the child in a carrier during the flight (something I am well aware of!). She also neglected to offer us a snack later on. Overall, she was rude and inconsiderate and made a difficult trip more unpleasant."

Pros: "Nothing I could not take the flight"
Cons: "They did not let us board because the connection time was not enough for our bags - no one took accountability and they finally rescheduled us on a flight the following day after 3 hours on the phone. Terrible"

Pros: "The PWM airport, ALMOST makes air travel tolerable. Great little airport. Crew was pleasant, Seemed to enjoy their work. That, alone makes a huge difference in an industry that truly doesn't put customer service anywhere NEAR the top of the priority list."

Pros: "Ability to avoid storms in order to provide a less stressful and safer flight. Actually arrived early!"
Cons: "Did not like having to board from the tarmac."

Pros: "The crew was always very warming and assisting. Everything was a breeze."

Pros: "With American Airlines in general there is no such thing as customer service anymore .Staff at desk at the airport are rude .Could learn a few things from your Australian counterparts at Qantas airlines"
Cons: "No respect for customers anymore"

Pros: "Somewhat disappointing on the snack options..."

Pros: "Older aircraft, seat cushion was on its last legs regarding comfort as I sunk to the frame of the seat. No onboard entertainment on the headrest as compared with our outgoing flight."
Cons: "The seat discomfort and the lack of entertainment."

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "Small plane with no leg room"

Pros: "The pilot and crew were considerate that it was very early on a Sunday and so they kept interruptions to a minimum."
Cons: "The legroom seemed particularly tight on this flight. Not sure why. I fly a lot. Maybe this plane was diffferent - or I was particularly interested in napping and it was hard?"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Flight was good until, after arriving 30 minutes early to PWM, our plane had to wait about that much time for our gate to open. Once pulling to the gate we waited another 15 minutes for someone to figure out the walkway and open the door tom the plane-- all with no communication from the crew."

Pros: "Short duration"
Cons: "Didnt have a seat assignment for me. Told me the flight was overbooked... paid long in advance. Disappointing, finally finally found a seat."

Pros: "The flight assistants were nice"
Cons: "The entire flight from Miami to New Orleans, the ac felt like the heater was on. I was sweating and felt nasty."

Cons: "i decided to purchase a separate direct flight at a different time instead of changing my flight, only to be informed later when i tried to hop on the back end of my original flight, that they had canceled my ticket since i hadnt boarded on the front end of that flight. i had spoken to a customer service rep about my option before purchasing the extra ticket, and she did not mention that this would be an issue. then i had to pay extra to get back on my original flight."

Pros: "Quick and easy"

Pros: "Biarding"
Cons: "Gogo inflight entertainment"

Pros: "American Airlines is my favorite Airlines to fly. There is a little more leg room and the seats are a little wider. The staff is very professional and courteous."

Pros: "Not applicable"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I never even made the flight because they kept jerking us around"
