Virgin cancelled my flight on July 2nd, two hours after I booked it and never let me know. I discovered this when I attempted to check in online. By that time, it was too late to rebook on any airline and I missed an important training event and conference.
Always a good flight on Virgin
Booked AVML meals in Premium Economy. The check in agent reconfirmed this. Also she said this was a standard offering in the route. Turns out they didn’t have AVML in a 10+ hour flight. Unacceptable
The crew was accommodating
Erything was excellent and easy
Pros: "The crew was so kind and amazing. They definitely made our flight great!"
Cons: "The entertainment wasn’t working for most of the flight. We only got about an hour and a half of entertainment"
Cons: "The service on Virgin Australia is quite poor. They are barely around. The seats are also only mediocre"
Cons: "We are a little hard of hearing. It was hard to hear the attendant when giving directions over the intercom. The speech was garbled and directions spoken too fast. I am not referring to the safety speech. Recommend slowing down so that we have more time to process what was spoken."
Pros: "Very friendly crew. The meals are good, nice variety. Hot food is hot."
Cons: "Seats are not the most comfortable and sometimes the screen on the entertainment tv doesn't work that easily."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Comfort. Seats were very uncomfortable with absolutely NO leg room. I fly a lot and this was one of the WORST leg room experiences I had."
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic is the best airline I’ve ever flown on internationally. The service is wonderful, from check in to inflight service. Everything went as planned. The food and drinks on board are free and they are an abundance of snacks, much more than we dreamed. The flight attendants are excellent"
Cons: "No. Keep up the good work!"
Pros: "Loads of leg room compared with other flights (I'm 6' and my knees are usually embedded in the seat in front, but not this time!"
Cons: "USB socket on the entertainment on both flight out and return was broken."
Cons: "We were bussed to the plane, there were long dark hairs on my pillow, and they are generous with snacks at close intervals, but the food could be much better. The ideas are cute, but the actual food is pretty basic, which is disappointing for Virgin, who I hold in high regard. Or did."
Pros: "Comfy, nice crew, attentive."
Pros: "crew / cabin staff always seem very friendly and genuine and a willingness to help"
Pros: "The crew was maybe average, that was still the best point."
Cons: "Extremely tight space. The food was almost inedible. Awful."
Cons: "My bag was damaged in transit"
Pros: "Great attentive service, good food and in-flight entertainment"
Pros: "The airplane was quiet My seat did not recline, but was seated in a different place where the seat reclined Bathrooms were clean and plenty"
Cons: "The remote controls for the entertainment system That you can’t reach the vents when you have to be buckled"
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"
Pros: "- Presence of entire box sets of some TV shows was a nice touch that I made good use of."
Cons: "- EVERY damn movie is prefaced by 4 minutes of ads. - The touchscreens (at least in economy) are slow resistive screens that are horrible for fine control gestures (like slightly changing the volume or position)"
Pros: "I loved the in flight entertainment, and there was always so many snacks and drinks available for free!"
Cons: "For boarding, we had to walk a rather far distance due to construction."
Pros: "Staff. Very couteous.polite. friendly."
Cons: "Good.entertainment choices."
Cons: "Missed connection to SFO"
Pros: "Great, friendly, professional crew, clean comfortable plane. Loved that full dinner and baggage and wine was included in an economy class overnight from DC to London as well as breakfast. Best flight in a long time, will definitely fly again."
Cons: "the tv screen's touch screen capabilities could use an upgrade, it was a hassle to navigate, not very sensitive to touch."
Cons: "Older media entertainment screen with hard to use touch interface."
Pros: "Good Service. Great attitude of flight attendants..early arrival. smooth flight."
Cons: "despite purchasing 'extra legroom' seats, it was still very, very crowded and tight."
Pros: "Great crew, easy boarding, comfortable enough flight"
Cons: "Could have used a charger for electronics, especially because we were expected to use our own device for entertainment. Didn't order food, but didn't look digestible"
Pros: "The flight crew from the mel to lax route were excellent. One was especially attentive to my 2 toddlers and gave me a bit of a break, something that has NEVER happened in over 40 flights traveling with children."
Cons: "I think something was broken in our section (mel to lax) as it was uncomfortably hot and the flight crew tried to get it cooler but could not. I’ve never experienced a flight that was too hot, usually the opposite. It was stifling."
Pros: "Even it was a 12-13hrs flight, I had been my best flight ever in a long flight. Virgin really exeeced my expectations."
Pros: "No one would update that the flight was delayed. They would not even communicate as to why delayed and would not put us in a different flight. Absolutely no customer service. Disappointed and would not fly jet airways again . I missed my conference lecture today as I was late."
Cons: "No communication, nor will they tell you why it's late . Nor will they move you to another flight even wen requested"
Pros: "Cabin crew were friendly and attentive. Flight was on time and we got to Atlanta early"
Cons: "Could do with more legroom. Food not the greatest"
Pros: "Good entertainment, food and in-flight crew"
Cons: "Because this flight was delayed it was a miracle (involving running til my throat literally bled) that I made my connection. Ground crew could not have been less helpful - even to my friend who they knew was trying to get home to attend a family funeral."
Cons: "During my flight from LAX to LHR I requested (pre-booked) a special meal (Asian Vegetarian). During the flight I was told there was no such request in their records and therefore I had to stay hungry for the entire duration of the flight. During my return flight from LHR to LAX the in flight entertainment system for my seat was not functional. I requested it to be reset several times and in spite of the hostess resetting it several times, it did not function. I had to stay without an entertainment system during the entire flight. This was my first time travel with Virgin Atlantic. I may never fly Virgin Atlantic again."
Pros: "first time I flew VirginAtlantic. Heard so many good things about it. It fact even our Uber driver was praising the airline on our way to the airport. But once onboard: - poor food (I mean 'survival kit' style) - entertainment station was not working - games feel like 20 years old - design (heavy red) now looks dated and suffocating - hostesses are more focused on their hairstyle than their customers"
Cons: "Back to Air France next time!"
Pros: "Food, crew and overall experience was good"
Cons: "Got assigned seats all the way in the back. They were comfortable but would have preferred better seats."
Pros: "The crew were excellent."
Cons: "Seats were ridiculously uncomfortable. The seat cushions were worn and had no padding. Very few movie, Show, music and game choices to choose from. The audio input didn't work in my seat. Major fail for a 13+ hour flight."
Pros: "Plenty of snacks and great service, with comfy seats"
Cons: "My luggage did not make it to destination :("
Pros: "Purchased an extra 3" of leg room, which helped tremendously being that my husband & I are both tall. Flight attendants were friendly, helpful & attentative. There were plenty of beverages offered. The food service was adequate. So many options on the media screens on the back of the seats. USB ports were provided on the back of every seat as well."
Pros: "the food was very good and they hd a good list of selections of movies."
Cons: "the crew was very dry. they did not seem too happy."
Pros: "Dinner was fantastic! Excellent meal. Flight crew were terrific as well."
Cons: "Dislike the recent removal of onboard snacks. It's a very long flight. Nuts or chips or cheese and crackers would be very helpful. Had no idea this service was discontinued until way into the flight. Not sure why it was stopped. Btw I don't believe this was a Virgin Atlantic flight, I believe it was Virgin AUSTRALIA. Think you have names backwards on survey."
Pros: "The people at Check-in were fantastic - found out you have to check-in more than an hour before flight. They close an hour before to taking bags for international flights. Although right at an hour was late, they reopened for us."
Cons: "They tried checking my carryon luggage because they said it was overweight and it would be $130. This is absurd, especially since it isn't going to change in weight by getting checked. I refused to pay this amount. The flight was also 3 hours delayed, almost missed my connection back to the states from SYD. Other international flights offer free meal service, you were lucky if you got water on this flight and had to pay for any snacks."
Pros: "Was a comfy flight thanks to not having anyone sitting next to me. If someone wouldve been next to me it wouldnt have been as nice because the seats are too bunched for international travel."
Cons: "My seat wouldnt recline properly. There were limited food options for non pork eaters. No outlets for power. How can you operate an international flight with nothing provided for those who need to charge their devices after some time. Not a smart design move."
Cons: "My video monitor didn't work so I couldn't watch movies, asked the crew twice to help and they never did. Then to top off a terrible 10 hour flight with no entertainment, my bag never made it. Worst experience ever"
Pros: "It was a great experince we enjoy the flight other than the delay on the luggage"
Cons: "one of my luggage was lost and delayed for 2hrs. We waited at the Airport for the luggage to arrive."
Pros: "Due to earlier late connecting flight into LAX, I assume, my bags didn't make it with me, and arrived two days late. But your man Fred from PNG Air was right there in POM Jackson's airport to take my information and somehow two days later I did receive the bags! Thanks! The flight itselfe was fine in every other way."
Cons: "Maybe when I checked in for the last two flights if your check-in agents could've told me more clearly about where in the system my bags were, it would've been less of a surprise to find out in POM that they were not with me. I did ask, but got answers like 'we'll try to transfer them' or 'your bags are in the system', which were not too informative, but maybe as complete as those workers could ascertain, I don't know. I would've liked to be able to check in on line in advance for this and other flights on this trip, if you ever decide to open up that facility (without a charge), it would be appreciated."
Pros: "It was on time, and the crew was welcoming and helpful."
Cons: "The lack of healthiness of the snack--mostly sweets."
Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, food was bad"
The flight was delayed and we were stranded at Dulles airport for 2 days (48 hours) as United Airlines cancelled the flights!
The flight was on a very small plane for a transatlantic flight. It was more suitable for a mid-distance domestic flight. The plane was also quite old and its entertainment systems repeatedly froze and shut down. Finally, the airline charged for most food and drinks--on an international flight. I will avoid Lufthansa and its partner, United, in the future. Also, the airports are a disastrous mess, with long lines and huge numbers of flights delayed (although this is beyond the airline's control). Both my flights were delayed substantially.
My flight was cancelled and Air cañada said they didn’t even have that flight number or my name in their computer. Does this mean Kayak somehow messed up with the letters/ number sequence? No one would help me at the airport. Lufthansa said it was Air cañadas fault and I had gotten two messages from Kayak, one was at 6 am(I had already called a ride so I was going an hour earlier ) then after 2 hours at airport I get my message from Kayak(Ricky) saying sorry your flight is cancelled? Then, like I say, no one would even put me on standby for another flight as my numbers you gave me did not match. Can you please get me on a flight home? No later than Monday, please? I am out of money
No issues boarding or on flight
On my way from Denver to Munich the flight was delayed. The pilot himself said he couldn't explain the reason for the 1 hour delay. The delay resulted in almost everyone on the flight missing their connections, including me and my husband. No effort was made to help passengers with tight connections to get off the plane and to their gates faster. After an international flight, the last thing you want is an 8-hour layover where you've no choice but to remain awake and exhausted for an unhealthy amount of time. As a pitiful expression of apology, Lufthansa gave us a 10 euro voucher to use in the Munich airport--not even enough for a full, hot meal. Not to mention that checking in for both my flight to and from my destination city was very stressful because of an abundance of travelers and a clear understaffing on the airline's side. Even though I came two hours early to check in for my return flight, I only had ten minutes at the gate before it was boarded. The whole experience was rushed and stressful and inefficient. The worst part, though, was that one of my checked bags was returned to me with my clothes sticking out of it and some speciality cheese I bought entirely missing. I have also found it really difficult to get in touch with the Lufthansa customer service. They claim in emails with my flight information that I especially requested that my reservation number be withheld from me (I never requested this). The loss of this number has made it nearly impossible for me to register complaints without calling the airline and wasting hours of time. I would greatly reconsider ever booking with this airline again.
OMG! The 5/21/2022 flight was canceled after we were on board over 3 hours! NO AIR CANADA rep to help! No Air Canada gate to check in with. It was total chaos at the Lisbon airport. Trying to get out today, 5/22/2022, the Air Canada agent said we. needed a new Covid test, only to find out AFTER we paid 20EU, that it was NOT needed. They were not educated on the rules, even though they knew they were checking in people from the canceled flight. Totally UNACCEPTABLE! I will never fly Air Canada again, operated. Y Lufthansa. I plan to post on Facebook and Twitter how bad this was.
Decent flight, no concerns
The lady Lo was worried about which useless mask are children were wearing. We wore these cloth masks on one lufthansa flight and through two airports with zero trouble for the scientifically useless masks we wear for show conformity to power hungry people , dhe demanded we change to the so called medical masks. really, put her on a domestic flight or something.
I expected a better flight. The food was very poor. The aircraft was too warm
I choose Lufthansa cause it’s a good airline with great quality but this one was soo old and poor. Food was terrible. Blankets and pillows very old, looked like they were like used. The chairs were soo uncomfortable
Pros: "In general, everything was ok aboard the plane."
Cons: "The plane was supposed to leave Lisbon at 5:00 a.m. but because of computer problem it left at 5:50, a delay that caused everyone to scramble to get to their connecting flight or even miss it."
Cons: "Lufthansa not taking any responsibility for allowing connection time to be so short. Everyone on the fight from London missed their connections!"
Cons: "Better entertainment"
Pros: "The seat was good, and the crew was great."
Cons: "Boarding at the gate, and not having to take the bus."
Pros: "Really cheerful and friendly crew."
Cons: "They changed my seat just before boarding. Front lavatories are not usable by passengers behind the curtain."
Cons: "Traveled business class and the big perk was nobody in the middle seat. My seat was same size and uncomfortable as economy seats. The seating chart when I chose seats showed only 2 seats on each side. However there were 3 regular seats on each side, just like economy. Not a nice surprise."
Pros: "the flight got me where I needed to go"
Cons: "no boarding zones. boarding was a free for all."
Pros: "Nice to have breakfast on board"
Cons: "Arrival was a little tardy"
Cons: "Food need be much better"
Pros: "The crew were super friendly. There was plenty of space and I slept for a few hours"
Cons: "I did not like the fact that the United flight I came in on was over a MILE of corridors away from the outgoing flight."
Pros: "Very friendly and professional crew"
Cons: "Outdated entertainment system on the plane"
Pros: "- Excellent service, food and entertainment. - Pilot compensated for the delayed take off"
Cons: "- The take off was delayed and we stayed in the plane for over 1 hour - When we landed we waited in the plane for over 40 min until we got to the gate"
Pros: "Boarding was fast. Lots of bathrooms."
Cons: "wifi was really bad, and they said that's how it is poor choice of movies cramped seats poor food choices"
Pros: "Pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "DREADFUL seats for the price. Small, coffin-like affairs packed together like proverbial sardines. I can't believe there are still middle seats for this price on a modern wide body aircraft. I was on the inside and had to step over my neighbor. The food choices were so unappetizing that I opted not to eat. I usually fly SAS business class, and based on this experience with United, I will go straight back to SAS. They offer better service, better menu choices, and first class seating for the same price. Easy decision."
Pros: "Individual screens for all seats with a varied selection of entertainment options. Plenty of room under the seat for my carry-on. (It helped that no one was in the seat next to me.) Beverages were offered frequently. Smooth flight, smooth landing."
Pros: "It was exciting to fly on a gigantic plane as the Jumbo"
Cons: "Not to many options of food. Dinner wasn't dinner. It was a snack."
Pros: "great flight attendants - very friendly and attentive"
Cons: "The landing was extremely turbulent - an announcement from the pilot would have been nice."
Pros: "Very friendly staff and food was delicious."
Cons: "I had to run from Terninal A to Z to make this flight since our first flight was delayed arriving due to weather. As a result, my luggage didn't make it to my destination."
Pros: "The on board crew worked hard to make up for the 2 hour delay. I was happy to be fed in the right hour flight, but the food was not very good. I did not download the app for inflight entertainment so I can't rate it."
Cons: "The plane departure was delayed and the passengers were left wondering about the flight. There was no announcement to explain until an hour after the departure time. All monitors showed original departure."
Cons: "AS ALWAYS, LEG ROOM IS an issue on international flights. Screaming children kicking my seat the whole trip makes for an uncomfortable ride. Movies were slow to load and cut off multiple times for no reason."
Pros: "I think this airline is a very good airline, but this flight was shorter so it didn't have all of the perks of the longer ones that it usually has."
Cons: "In Lisbon we had to be bused out to the airplane to board, so it was a long process."
Pros: "Again, nice staff. Clean plane. The flight was on time."
Cons: "The games and the book for the teens did not interest my kids. Not sure how popular those items are. Food-not good at all."
Cons: "Flight delayed by about an hour"
Pros: "On time. Not too crowded."
Pros: "Economy seats are not comfortable. The seat cushions are worn out and do not provide good support for long flights."
Cons: "The service provided by the crew was okay but their attitudes were horrible. It seems as though they did not want to work."
Pros: "Cabin is not very private feeling, plus you have to climb over people. Maybe slightly better than Air France's offering on the A380. Service and food was good."
Cons: "N/A because we missed the flight."
Cons: "At the luggage claim the flight crew collected their baggage first then the passengers. My last bag didn't appear for 40 minutes after the flight crew departed."
Pros: "Short flight Ease of checking in Meal provided"
Cons: "Time of flight changed by two hours earlier w/o being notified No entertainment Flight delayed due to passenger"
Pros: "Service was great."
Cons: "Boarding process is a bit chaotic since they dont go by group, but by class. Seats in Business class are no different than economy."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight."
Pros: "This was my first international flight, and also first on Lufthansa, and I was thoroughly impressed. We traveled with another couple who've flown internationally multiple times, but this was their first Lufthansa flight as well, and they said it's the best they'd had. The crew were all excellent, friendly, and accommodating. There was plenty of entertainment options, refreshments, and snacks. The food was very good-much better than I'd expected. I appreciated that there were pillows, blankets, and headphones readily available as well. I'll try to fly Lufthansa every chance I get when flying internationally."
Pros: "Check-in was quick, only 4 parties ahead of me even though I arrived at the airport only 60 minutes prior to departure. Cleared security quickly too. Aircraft new and clean. Breakfast, excellent omelet, and crew extremely attentive to our needs- offering 2 drinks instead of other airlines which just give one and makes you feel that is all you deserve."
Cons: "Couldn't have been better."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable and narrow seats. Pathetically sized leg rooms. ...And I am not a big person. Lufthansa has been my favorite airline for years but I am sad to see that with every new plane they get, the seats and leg rooms get smaller and smaller, ignoring the fact that 4 people have to sit there for 8 hours, elbows and legs touching with no wiggle room. Will not take Boeing 747-400 again."
Pros: "Crew attitude - so much better than on the indifferent and even hostile US carriers"
Pros: "Courteous flight crew"
Pros: "Flew Boing -747 in economy. Wireless internet was nice, but very slow. Food was good, crew was offering water and juice quite often during a flight. Right on schedule. Good price, but had to cough up $100 for a second piece of luggage."
Cons: "Strange selection of movies, outdated earphones, USB wasn't charging my phone."
Pros: "Short and Smooth Flight"
The flight was delayed at least one hour. The bathroom inside the aircraft was really dirty. On the other hand the cabin crew was really nice.
Thumbs up for KLM crew, planes and Schiphol Airport, though short on staff and a little late everything went smooth, including the flight.
being a flight attendant and using spécial fare I apreciate being treated equally to the other pax, the fact that the crew, when I informed them of my status, went to check if I had a good seat ( no one beside me, to be able to get good rest.) Those are important gestures towards the person. I look to more flights with KLM
They canceled our flights but the flight went on anyway.
Pros: "The crew were great! The seats are not that comfortable, it happened that I had 3 seats raw for myself but the armrests were not going up so I could not utilize them and lie down to sleep."
Cons: "Allow business passenger to use front bathroom."
Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"
Pros: "Terrific hot breakfast in bus. class"

Pros: "The crew was professional & friendly"

Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."
Pros: "The crew tried to be helpful but were equally frustrated with the ground crew."
Cons: "Follow your own policies. Allow people to board (economy plus) with their hand luggage who have followed all the rules and chosen a seat in the front of the plane. My daughter and my KLM approved baggage were taken by the boarding crew while allowing other passengers to go with more than allowed"
Pros: "Staff were professional and polite."
Cons: "Despite zone boarding, boarding and disembarkation were very slow. Passengers like me with flight connections were very anxious regarding missing these."
Cons: "The plane is so old..,"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"
Pros: "Reasonable space in economy class seats"
Cons: "Staff hurrying us up 40 minutes before departing and threatening to take our bags out of the plane in case we didn’t board then. I had to leave my coffee and run."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and food was very good"
Cons: "There was no entertainment on the flight from Vancouver to Amsterdam and this on top of a two hour delay in taking off which led us to have to literally run to our gate in Amsterdam to make the connection to Mumbai"
Pros: "Friendly crew, upgraded seat was worthwhile"
Cons: "More snacks in between meals,"
Pros: "Crew was great and professional."

Cons: "I wish they had WiFi"
Pros: "the crew was nice"
Cons: "Seat confort on long flights, leg rooms,"
Cons: "Inflight was better than I expected. But needs upgrading air crafts."
Pros: "Friendly staff, great service on board. Way better value and service compared to the tacky Irish competition flying the route. Delta all the way"
Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."
Pros: "Flying with KLM is a pleasure"
Pros: "Restrooms clean, decent food and drink, nice cabin crew."

Pros: "Professional crew. Good boarding."
Cons: "No entertainment on board in business. Stale buns - staff unapologetic. Older 737 with uncomfortable seats."
Pros: "Food was excellent, frequent and filling"
Cons: "The seat was not comfortable compared to my prior leg of the journey. Unfortunately the bathrooms were not clean, I understand that it's not the sole responsibility of the crew and passengers need to be mindful too."
Cons: "infotainment was down. Lost my luggage the flight was delayed"
Pros: "Boarding was as expected, crew & food were ok. Nothing else positive to extract out of this flight."
Cons: "Delayed flight, horrible baggae policy when the flight is actually operated by a partner of the company you bought the ticket from and not the actual company. Dirty seats, no in-flight entertainment whatsoever (not even a magazine)."
Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"
Pros: "Friendly staff, good service and on time departure/arrival."
Pros: "Good information and helpfil boarding."
Cons: "Has to wait in confined area fir nearly 2 hrs before boarding. No restroom or refreshments within that area."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Entertainment was dated and poor in function. Our bags were 99 dollars each and we’re both lost and didn’t arrive. I just filed a claim and got rude service saying I should have filed the claim at the airport baggage area but there was not anybody there to do the claim then he agent upstairs said they just spoke to them and they are there and I should have done it there. This was so rude and there is no way to get back into customs area. If we paid 200 for bags I expect them to arrive on time. I’m asking for a refund of the baggage fees."
Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Food was good!"

Furthermore, the entertainment on board is great! Nice movies, nice food, friendly flight attendants, etc. They even offered me a second sandwich =)! I truly loved my experience with KLM."
Pros: "They were awesome."
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 crew was very pleasant and professional. toilets were very clean adequate overhead space"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats in Economy Comfort. Legroom and recline were OK but the seats were extremely narrow. No evening meal and breakfast was minimal"
Made me check a bag that I have carried onto hundreds of flights . Caused me to miss my connection in Paris because I was flying a different airline and my bags didn’t transfer . The agent was rude and refused to listen. My mother who was three people in front of me in another line Carried the same bag on with no issues . Be consistent
Nice,elegant,smooth,team had a pride with their work. My Favorite Airline.
Flight to Florence delayed. All passengers took a bus to Pisa (1.5 hours away) to fly Pisa to Paris. We missed our connection and flew next day. All information regarding the delay online was incorrect ("system not yet updated") . So calling Air France was useless as they could not assist. Not all flight delays can be avoided but many improvements are needed throughout this process.
Pros: "The seats were much more comfortable then my last flight. The entertainment system was also updated from the 1980’s remote and cord ones on my flight from DC to Paris."
Cons: "There was no food between the two meals on an 8 hour flight. I had a flight attendant rudely tell me that there is nothing to offer until the next meal. No one reached out to me about the horrible flight and comments I made from the last flight."
Cons: "I may be wrong but these days, the staff curtsy and overall well coming approach is lacking! Just a smile and a few cheerful words can transform passengers’ mood greatly!! This becomes particularly important when one is traveling for > 9 hours back to back flights!! One can extra charge for it!!"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "Seat angle adjustment was not the most comfortable for sleeping."
Pros: "Not much, seats are super uncomfortable"
Cons: "Better code sharing with KLM"
Cons: "They made me check my carryon rolly which is allowed on every other plane in the world, which meant going all the way back into a chaos of hundreds of people to check in. Because I had a connecting flight to New York in London, the check in caused many problems...and everything inside soaking wet"
Pros: "The entertainment options were great."
Cons: "Seats are so cramped. I'm 5'3" and could use either arm rest because both people on either side spilled into my seat."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Food was excellent"
Pros: "Average crew. Average seat."
Cons: "They could have controlled screening babies better. They just let them scream....."
Cons: "The flight delayed for 2xhours from Paris to Cincinnati"
Pros: "Air France has the best crews! They really go the extra mile."
Cons: "My skis were lost on the way to Riga and had to be delivered 2 days later to Vilnius. That said, the situation was handled very professionally."
Pros: "Good food and service"
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: "Check in process was easy. The flight attendants are all very helpful and kind. We are playing was OK but it could’ve been cleaned a little better before we got on board."
Cons: "Check in process was easy. The flight attendants are all very helpful and kind."

Pros: "The only thing that I like about the flight was that it was easy to boarding"
Cons: "The food was not heat correctly it was cold and I felt that the crew rush to give out the food. The seats are terrible, if the person in front of you reclines you won’t be able to see the screen if your watching a movie and you will see the top of the persons head."
Pros: "The size of the plane was nice. They had a good move selection. The vegan meal I was given was great."

Pros: "Plus seat was good. On board crew was nice."

Cons: "Its been a week. My trip has ended. I still do not have my bags. Terrible customer service."

Pros: "The time of the flight was great as well as the arrival time and subsequent connections to Paris. Enjoyed the rather full line of in flight beverages!"
Cons: "Leaving late seemingly without reason from Paris - chaotic boarding line in Paris with difficult to hear PA. Seats were ok'ish but than again, it's a 45 minute flight. The sandwich was gross and I'm somewhat known as a person who eats everything!"
Pros: "Being able to have my meal at the airport before my flight so that I could sleep in comfort."
Pros: "Friendly crew and exit row had nice legroom."
Cons: "Ran out of the (already not sufficient) salty crackers and, as the flight had been delayed, we had a one packet of cracker 'lunch' at noon... the flight really should have had a sandwich or at least something slightly more substantial."
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!"
Pros: "Cheap aircraft, not even headsets"
Cons: "Dirty aircraft, I expect more when I pay a lot"
Pros: "Flight arrived safely."
Cons: "Air France offered no help rebooking missed connection at JFK due to delay of more than 2 hours in arrival."

Pros: "tool me safe from one airport to another"
Cons: "wait time, food"
Pros: "Other crew members were very polite to us, in particular a younger tall woman."
Cons: "2 crew members, one named Terri were quite rude and short with us. I even heard her say she was ready to get off the flight. She also asked everyone around me if they liked their flight but did not ask me. She basically threw my coffee condiments at me and dismissed my concerns about the food. I was unsure if the fruit was expired and she quickly dismissed my question without any real explanation."

Pros: "Landed in one piece despite weather."
Cons: "WiFi was down"

Cons: "Charlotte lost my bag and will not answer"
Cons: "The flight was late with no explanation. The incoming equipment was at the gate in time."
Pros: "Person checking tickets was good"
Cons: "Constant delays. Lots of waiting and zig zagginf around runway before taking off. Bags took forever to get out. It was a small plane and not full. No reason to wait 40 minutes for bags. Overall unenjoyable flight experience."
Cons: "Sat on the ramp for an hour with no A/C, no water. Jaded crew. Not good overall."
Pros: "Worst flight crew in business class ....super lazy"
Pros: "Crew had great personalities"
Cons: "Late to leave and arrive"
Pros: "Very cool touchscreen players on the back of each seat."
Cons: "The lights were on 90% of the flight...a night flight."

Pros: "Checking in and boarding the plane went fast and smoothly. The crew was very kind and friendly."
Cons: "I wish American offered more vegan and wheat/ gluten free options, as well as herbal tea options. I was determined to sleep during this flight, but I was hoping this plane would have the TV behind the chair. I enjoy watching the live map as we’re flying."
Pros: "We were very well looked after by a group of male flight attendants. The plane was clean, calm, quiet and we had all we needed."
Cons: "There were no TVs for each passenger especially for a 3+ hour long flight which was disappointing."
Pros: "Made it closer to home. Bulkhead seats space useful when traveling with infant."
Cons: "Flight Delays. Riding a bus to the plane is outdated. Older 767 airplane. Crew did not seem friendly."
Cons: "7.5 hr flight from Lisbon to Philadelphia on a dingy old plane that looks like it hasn’t been retrofitted in close to 20 years, with no charging ports for electronics, which seems insane in this day and age, especially for such long flights. Had no in-seat entertainment systems either, and only offered news and sports on the American wi-fi service — not their usual lineup of movies and TV."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and then the airport in Philadelphia "wasn't aware" that we were coming to it took forever to get off the plane. I would have missed my next flight if they didn't wait for us. Also I couldn't check in online beforehand, which was frustrating. Also I waited in line at the British Airways desk to check in and it was a long line. When I finally got to the front I was told I had to check in at the American Airlines desk and I wish I had been told that earlier. One staff member was rude when I asked him to repeat the food options."
Pros: "Three beer and three wine selection made the flight go by quicker. Food was better than expected based on pasta or shepherd's pie options."
Cons: "Full flight with uncomfortable seats, no tv/movies at each seat. Our AA four-hour flight after this was much nicer, with in flight entertainment. What?! I haven't flown on an international flight without entertainment at each seat in 10 years... And I have flown to over 40 countries since then."
Cons: "No airline has trans Atlantic flights without personal entertainment anymore. I expect it and am super disappointed when I don’t get my movies."
Pros: "Very nice crew. Thank you. I get to see my family."
Cons: "never made the flight. a day of misery thanks to poor communication within one world, AA rigidity, and chaotic long lines at FlightConnections, Heathrow."
Cons: "I got tranafered to 4 different gates aand my flight was delayed for 3 hrs with no explaination and the staff didn't try to help"
Pros: "Leg room between seats"
Cons: "Temperature in the aircraft was extremely cold and when I asked the stewardess for a blanket one asked the other if there was a spare blanket and very bluntly answered no. Only toilet in economy class was cloughed up and was not functional therefore a very disgraceful situation, they sent me to the other toilet in 1st class area and there I notice several blankets on empty seats after I was told there weren’t any spare blankets."
Pros: "Good service, great entertainment."
Cons: "Small seats, older aircraft."
Pros: "We had our passes available on our iPhone to assist the boarding process. Very enjoyable trip with the crew and we plan to fly AA again in the future."
Cons: "We had some light turbulence but other than flight was great."
Cons: "Very disorganized. Why was I put on this terrible American Airlines plane? My headphone outlet was broken, the plane was very uncomfortable, the boarding was disorganized. I thought I paid for a British Airways flight?"
Cons: "Zero in flight entertainment"
Pros: "Great service. The staff was great."
Pros: "Excellent service. Crew was friendly and helpful. Food was great."

Pros: "unAnnounced gate change"
Cons: "Running in airport"
Pros: "Crew was fine and meal service was decent"
Cons: "Stood on the jetway for 30 minutes due to some issue with boarding. Aircraft was tiny, not enough bathrooms for such a long flight. Dirty bathrooms and long lines."
Cons: "I was scheduled to leave Lisbon at 11:45 am however at 6am I received a call to say my flight was cancelled and I was booked on the British Airways flight the next day at 7:30 am. This after AA had turned my flight on the way out around on the way from Austin to Paris and we had to spend the night in Chicago."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Easy to transfer luggage from an international flight to a domestic flight. The crew was accommodating. It is such a short flight that there were only pretzels and water without ice served on this flight. There was no entertainment on this flight. Small, clean plane for a less that 1 hour flight."
Pros: "I liked the ease of the gate for the airplane."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. The airline did not offer a complimentary headphones, and failr sure the wifi was not even working. Also was not that big of a fan with the extra long layover. Was not a fan of the extra time in the holding pattern above Indianapolis, nor the extra time 150 feet from the gate after we landed."
Pros: "Nice people good plane ride -- no problems."
Pros: "Clean, quiet, nice staff"
Cons: "Was late"
Pros: "Great announcements by lead flight attendant."
Pros: "Except for comments under what I didn't like. AA experience was O.K."
Cons: "The restrooms needed cleaned better. Big airplane lots of people, needs cleaned before, during, and after. Had to pay for the Wi-Fi, that I used for 30 min, basically for E-Mail."
Pros: "Everything went smoothly"
Pros: "The only thing I liked was how polite and helpful the staff was at the airport."
Cons: "The flight attendants both seemed unhappy and we're not very polite. They hardly came through the cabin at all. It took a while to get anything. They mostly just stayed in the back talking to each other. The pilot didn't greet us. Just stood there when we walked in. And there was a kid screaming for most of the trip. My seat was broken and wouldn't recline. This was my first trip flying, and on the trip to Miami I flew with Delta. The service with them was tremendously better. I was really disappointed."
Cons: "Sat on the ground for an hour."
Cons: "The flight was incredibly delayed."
Cons: "Flight was very late. Boarding was not good!"
Pros: "I really like the crew on this flight, they were very polite and very friendly."
Cons: "Boarding again same comment as above. Comfort was good because I had paid for an upgrade which I actually thought I was paying for the international flight but found out it was actually for the Charlotte flight which was a surprise it was not very clear from the tool. So hence the Comfort was great on this flight. But the tool needs to make it much more clear as to what you are selecting the upgrade for. Food, there has got to be something else out there other than pretzels, I understand why we do not have peanuts, but a little bit more variety would be very nice. I understand there's a cost tractor, but often pretzels tend to be fairly stale. Short flights entertainment."
Pros: "No complaints. Love American!"
Pros: "We were very happy with the crew. They were very helpful and attentive throughout. One of the flight crew members even found me at customs to return a toy we had inadvertently left that belonged to my 13 month old. She certainly did not have to do that, so we are very thankful. Unfortunately, I did not catch her name."
Cons: "Unlike other airlines we have traveled that give priority to people traveling with children, American Airlines does not. That would be something that would be helpful for traveling parents. Allowing people with children to board first and get off the plane first would make things better for all passengers. Planes are also outdated. We have been traveling with other airlines that have individual screens. Much easier for people to travel on long flights when they have individual entertainment."
