Cons: "I have ordered Wheelchair for my parents which one of my parent didn't get it on Mumbai Airport. When they arrived on Amsterdam Netherlands Airport they were dropped to the gate assigned first and once the gate changed on the fly no body came to help them moving to the new gate assigned which was far away to walk. Nobody even came to tell them that the gate has been changed. It was because of my father's alertness they didn't miss the connecting flight and when my father asked help to members on airport none of them helped my parents and other 4 co passengers which also were on wheel chairs. It was so scary experience for them that they asked me not to book any more flights with Jet Airways. I won't recommend Jet Airways to any of my friends for their parents to travel to USA. I strongly recommend you guys to take a strict action against this. This is so unacceptable."
Cons: "Flight canceled, poor communication from the airline to the passengers. Møre than 5 hrs delay"
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: "NOTHING"
Cons: "Having to change my seat to accommodate a rude belligerent passenger, who had taken my seat, refused to move until spoken to by steward. She then made my flight a nightmare, until I let her sit in my aisle seat. Even then she was not satisfied, she abused me the whole flight damaged the screen so I could not use it until the steward fixed it. Demanded that I except any and all alcohol to give to her to drink. When I am tea total she then continued to abuse me. I asked the steward to move me he just shrugged his shoulders and said there was nowhere else. This is definitely my the worst flight I have experienced."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "So many people on a 747!!"
Pros: "Easy flight; loved the crew and their friendly customer service. Great food, kept everyone hydrated and fed."
Cons: "The movie options, as well as music and TV options were limited. There were no electrical outlets."

Cons: "That it didn’t happen."
Pros: "Able to fly direct to ansterdam"
Cons: "Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines."
Pros: "She was cheerful and genuine. I have dietary restrictions but was unable to preorder a meal. She went out of her way to find an available meal for me. I also saw her bring other passengers extra snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Cramped seating."
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."
Cons: "tv screens are dated so movies are not as crisp as you find in newer planes. you need a 2 prong audio adapter to use your own headphones."
Pros: "The aircraft was clean"
Cons: "The food was terrible, wifi was extremely expensive (Delta had free messaging over their wifi)"
Cons: "Missing wheel chairs swrvice lounge far away no food option just lame klm tipique"
Pros: "The staff the facilities the food all ******. Will definetly look forward to choose both delta and KLM"
Pros: "Only thing we liked was the fact that we were able to get onto our flight at all..."
Cons: "Was not informed that checking in online is the only way to secure a seat. So, regardless of whether you book your tickets 3 months in advance or the day before, you're not actually guaranteed a seat unless you check in online. We weren't told this until we were at the airport and checked in there that we might not be able to get our pre-booked in advance flight because of over-booking from KLM. We then had to wait and see if there were seats available when boarding. Luckily, there were, but we were not sat together. Not the greatest start to our first holiday together as a couple. We were told that if there weren't seats available, they'd pay for us to get to another airport to fly out, which would have meant a huge delay on the only time off we'd get together this year and have to rearrange our pre-booked and pre-paid living arrangements for the week. All because there wasn't a lot of emphasis on the need to check in online before hand. You'd think if someone checked in at the airport, that would be more of a guarantee that they'd be flying with you that day, but apparently not. Definitely not impressed or happy with this part of the KLM experience. This is the only company that we've had this problem with, they should make it clearer that it is essential to check in online."
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful personnel."
Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."
Pros: "The food was excelent"
Cons: "I have to pay to pay a little more confort"
Pros: "Nice seats, comfortable."
Cons: "Again, no aisle seat for SkyTeam Gold member. Also, my baggage was lost. First bag arrived a day late, second after I had left Billund and it was six days before the bag with my clothes reached me. I was told I will have 100 euro credit for clothing, but in the winter and for 6 days, this was not even close to the amount I needed for clothing and necessities, to have my time here."
Cons: "No proper info regarding cancellation. Staff was unfriendly and abruptly responded to passengers."
Pros: "Got to Amsterdam on time and everything was great including the staff"
Pros: "quick and relaxed"
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: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Flight crew was pleasant and attentive. Seats were comfortable for economy as well. We were allowed to check in extra baggage for free at check in which really helped since we would be catching a connecting flight in Amsterdam"
Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"
Pros: "Airline staff good and professional"
Cons: "Nothing one can do, for a 6.2" guy, the metal bar that forms the shape for the pouch for magazines and such digs into knees, ESP if person in front adjusts seat back. Fold out table barely accommodates laptop."
Cons: "Flight delayed by one hour which meant I missed by train at Southampton by 10 minutes and subsequent bus connect home. Next bus would have been 2 hours later so 45 minute walk home from train station. Didn't bother with food offering, put off by that supplied from Hannover to Schiphol."
Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"
Cons: "Departure 40 mins late. I took this flight 2 weeks ago and it was also delayed."
Pros: "Professional, friendly service. Punctual, safe flight. Comfortable, spotless airplane."
Cons: "What is there not to like about KLM? I cannot find anything."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliablity."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "Loads of leg room"
Cons: "Loved everything"
Pros: "Food and drink service"
Cons: "Boarding pass facility"
Pros: "Enough space good wine and on time"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Excellent service and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Flight delay roughly an hour"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Airlines had no record of our pets flying with. Missed our flight even though we were there over 3 hours prior. Ruined the last day of vacation. Now we are waiting for the promised help in Amsterdam. No one is here. No one knows anything. Feel like crying"

I bought insurance and everything cancelled 1 month ahead of time all they gave me was a sorry and no refund back even with premium service attached.

Poor selection of movies. Perhaps 30 or 40 movies available and none of them "new" in the last 6 or 12 months. Seat was fairly hard -- tough for 6 hour flight from Reykjavik to Chicago!

Pros: "On time. Good entertainment."
Cons: "No free food, limited beverage service, pushy crew."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive. They constantly made sure we were hydrated and comfortable."
Pros: "I appreciated that there were options to watch Icelandic movies and listen to Icelandic music."
Cons: "On one leg my entertainment screen didn’t work."
Pros: "Mostly on time, better than other flights"
Cons: "Boarding was a disaster - Reykjavik needs some serious re-tooling."
Pros: "Basic airline."
Cons: "I am fliying international on a 6.5 hour flight. My minimum expectaiton is free wine, beer and two meals. Iceland Air provides none of that. I will definitely try to fly other airlines if I can."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Pros: "The plane was clean and on time"
Cons: "Kayak I did not disclose that neither food nor bags were included in this fare. I triple checked to make sure bags were included in our tickets said economy from kayak. Kayaks information that links To Iceland air shows economy as including one free bag. Ours was Econ light which was $100 per bag"
Pros: "Entertainment was okay, arm rests lift up on all seats to get in and out easily."
Cons: "Boarding was horrible, took 30 minutes each time to get on and off the plane... waited in multiple queues at gate, at door, then in the jet bridge. Woke up to flight attendant grabbing my menu from my seat pocket, then shoving it back without warning even though my personal items were in there..."
Pros: "I slept through this flight. Everything was fine."
Cons: "Quick and easy experience."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "No new movies for entertainment, lost luggage, has to pay for food"
Cons: "I couldn’t make that flight since my flight from Paris was canceled. I hope I get refunded from the upgrade to business class I paid for."
Pros: "There was more legroom, seats were more comfortable, staff friendly"
Cons: "Better access to terminal, transfer from London plane to Chicago plane was cumbersome with lots of steps. We had a layover of an hour and a half or so and were required to stand in line to board next flight. My husband and I are older travelers and we look forward to having a few minutes to sit."
Cons: "Reykjavik airport is a nightmare."
Pros: "Decent selection of movies, more legroom than some carriers."
Cons: "Booked nonstop flights, Icelandair cancelled the flight and booked us with long layovers because our nonstop flight wasn’t filled. No compensation was given despite spending much more time and money than expected. Won’t fly with them again after this experience."
Pros: "Friendly staff and timely departure"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "We saw Greenland from the plane with the glacier, very nice! Comfortable plane!"
Cons: "The hostess we’re not friendly..."
Cons: "The connection times are just too short. An hour works fine when there are no delays, but we landed for our connecting flight 10 minutes before departure both times and had to run through the airport and customs."
Pros: "The movies offered were good."
Cons: "When you book a flight on Icelandair through Kayak, Kayak doesn’t tell you weather you’ve booked a ‘Economy light’ or an ‘Economy standard’ or ‘Economy premium’ ticket, it just says Economy. Icelandair offers a free checked bag for Economy standard and everything above, but not for light. We assumed we had standard because Kayak just said ‘Economy’ and found out later we had to pay for an expensive checked bag. Very disappointed in Kayak’s lack of communication and misrepresentation of the ticket we were booking."
Cons: "flight was delayed an hour, another hour to get luggage... main problem, however, was that once i was at FRA airport, the added a $105 surcharge on my luggage because supposedly it was an "economy light" ticket that doesn't allow checked luggage. It wasn't on the way over and it doesn't say anywhere on the ticket. To make things worse, none of the people at the counter were actually Iceland Air employee, so noone was able or willing to tell me anything about this (quote from employee "everything I tell you will be used against me" not sure if she was flippant or scared) Anyway, watch out for them screwing you over where they can"
Pros: "Overall friendly staff and enjoyed the free movies"
Cons: "Long wait on shuttle to airplane"
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable and small. The arm rest also doesn't go up when there was no one in the middle seat - which would have created more room."
Cons: "Same as above."
Cons: "N/a"
Pros: "Inflight entertainment was good with an OK selection of materials (Movies and TV shows)"
Cons: "Seats are way to close together, not leaving any leg room. The aisle seats have narrower than normal room under the seat in front. The middle seats have a large plastic piece under the seat, which takes away about half the height. Also the non-aisle arm rests do not lift up."
Pros: "I checked in online as early as possible and was able to change my seat from the back of the plane to Economy comfort without any additional cost. Ended up in the front of the plane with lots of legroom and a comfortable seat. First round of drinks they provided the whole can of soda, almost unheard of on flights anymore."
Cons: "Boarding process was a cattle call. No boarding by back of the plane to the front or any organization, just a mass convergence on the boarding gate. If you're going to offer food on the plane for sale, at least take cash for the purchase. The only way you could buy food was to use plastic. Not a great selection of movies on the entertainment line up. The screens and volume control were quite decent, just not a large selection to choose from"
Pros: "More relaxed travelling experience that with many other airlines. From check-in right through transfers and to arrival my experience was very positive. Staff were friendly and helpful. There weren't any real occasions where I needed something changed or sorted, which shows that the pre-work was excellent and works. Thank you."
Pros: "This was our first flight with Iceland Air and we kind of looked forward to it. On the way oversease we were immediately rebooked onto Swiss Air, before arriving at the airport, because Iceland Air had a delay and knew we would miss our connecting flight to Germany. We were very impressed by this and very happy with Swiss Air, also. On the way back we liked the roomier plane and the relative punctuality of the flights. Our luggage arrived fine and quickly at the end destination, despite the short layover, which often leads to lost luggage."
Cons: "Our biggest complaint is that Iceland Air does not offer meals as part of your ticket on its flights. They expect you to upgrade (and pay) for 'economy comfort' in order to get the meals and seating included in most other regular economy tickets. I don't think that being on a 6.5 hour flight (and a 3.5 hour flight immediately before without chance of making puchases at the airport in between, due to their delay) without a meal being included in your ticket is acceptable practice. They had a meny from which you could purchase food, things like baguette with ham/cheese, salad, oatmeal, instant noodles etc. But the prices for these cheap cafeteria options were insane. From the cheapest ($7 for a small instant oatmeal) to $16-$20 for a salad or small main course you would have to spend an additional 25-35$ per meal per person to get the usual airplane meal that all other airlines I know of include (2 per overseas flight). We did go hungry, eat candy, bought one little oatmeal and pretty much will avoid Iceland Air for that reason in the future. We thought it was outreageous to be asked to spend this amount of money or go without food for over 9 hours."
Pros: "The seats were roomy and comfortable, there was legroom. The plane did not feel overstuffed even though it was a packed flight. I also liked how they gave messages on the monitors. Someone got sick on the flight and the crew was very professional about the whole mess."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess ...not enough room for people to line up. Unclear if you were in the correct line for the flight you needed. More food selections for sale would have been nice, especially fruit and veggies but the sandwich they offered was very good. One crew member was just plain snippy...maybe having a bad day b/c all the others were great!"
Pros: "Nice team"
Cons: "No meal included very disappointing. + nothing appealing in menu + oat meal I ordered came out cold and half coocked. IA looks cheap scale really"
Pros: "On time arrival, smooth flight, efficient service, good price."
Cons: "Seats lack sufficient padding in the back...second trip to Iceland, second back ache on the plane. And for a 5.5 hour flight, even a small snack or breakfast item would be appreciated. No food at all unless purchased separately isn't sustainable, even in this market, in my opinion. That and the seats just annoy people."
Pros: "The crew was nice and friendly"
Cons: "The flight from Iceland to Chicago was delayed 6 hours, and they kept changing the departure time every 1.5 and 2 hours, and they provided minimal information, and did not repeat this information much. It was disorganized"
Pros: "The seats had screens with movies/music/tv shows. The flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was hectic and unorganized. Nobody got extra time if they needed it. From the gate we took a bus to the plane but just as we pulled up the crew was getting in. We sat on the bus for 30 minutes and nobody communicated what was going on. The flight was very choppy and a bit scary at times. There were no snacks. I was not impressed at all."
Pros: "The crew were kind, attentive, and pleasant. The leg room was appreciated"
Cons: "Not even a complimentary snack was offered during the 7 hour flight, let alone a glass of wine or beer. These used to come standard. The entertainment system was also of poor quality in that the audio connection was damaged."
Cons: "Check in at London Gatwick had a huge long snaking line that barely moved, as the gate agents apparently had two speeds: slow and stop. Took forever to inch forward, lucky I arrived almost three hours early, as check in and bag drop almost made me late for my plane. Transferred to another plane in Reykjavik, and had the WORST EXPERIENCE EVER in boarding. Airport is poorly marked, lucky it is small, because I finally figured out where to go. Huge crowd waiting to board, with NO gate agents or other Icelandair employees in sight. FINALLY the line started moving, but no announcement of boarding groups. Since I had an assigned seat I waited until the last in line to board. The first people in line must have sat in the plane for over an hour. The flight was delayed another hour because the luggage was not loaded. Horrible experience."
Cons: "our flight home was canceled without any email warning or any sort of message about it. We had to wait in the airport and call multiple people on our own to find out first, what was wrong, and two how to resolve the situation. It was not pleasant after waking up at 4AM to catch the flight in the first place."
Pros: "First, I loved my window seat, and thanks for the clear skies as we flew over my vacation home on a lake in Wisconsin! Also, the functioning screen was a nice distraction when we were clouded over the Greenland/eastern Canada part."
Cons: "PLEASE review and update your food choices. Nothing was healthy and the baguette sandwich had one piece of ham with melty cheese on extremely soggy bread. Had we realized how poor the selection was, we would have grabbed salads and fruits/veggies from the much better fare at the Reykjavik airport. Cheap airline doesn't have to include bad food."
Pros: "Iceland air has easy check in, fast boarding, basic seat comfort and leg room. I'm 5'10" and felt adequate room to stretch my legs."
Cons: "Only allow 1 checked luggage overseas, and they ask you to pay for food and beverage."
Pros: "A little more room than standard economy long-haul flights. Entertainment available on all seatbacks. Very friendly flight crew."
Cons: "Wished for free wine but oh well. My seat back screen had to be reset but that was about it."
Pros: "Seemed like there was extra leg room, compared to our last flight on American, where my husband's legs were literally touching the seat in front of him when he sat down. I also appreciate when the headrests have those little wing things so it makes it easier to fall asleep in a chair by keeping your head in place. The blankets were cosy. The crew was super efficient. It's the fastest I have ever gotten my drinks on a plane. They also seemed to be very helpful to the family with small children ahead of us, and seemed to help the baby stop crying, which was nice."
Cons: "I wish I knew in advance that we would have had to pay for food so that I could have gotten some food (because in general I assume for transatlantic flights that there are meals included. The boarding process was a bit jumbled, although still pretty efficient, but I think that's because of the airport layout rather than a fault specifically of the airline."
Cons: "We boarded the plan in Iceland outdoors and it was cold and raining with a very strong wind."
Cons: "Na"
Cons: "Seats recline too much resulting in the person in front of me encroaching on my area. There was no free food or snacks on a international flight. The boarding area was a mess and no verbal instructions were given for boarding."
Cons: "This was a six and a half hour flight. Snacks could be purchased, but no meals were served. Other airlines would provide at least one and perhaps two meals on a flight of this length. There was a long delay to board, and no communication from the check in staff"
Cons: "Flint attendant woke me up while sleeping to move my chair up at request of another passenger"
Cons: "Already confused by a late transfer, the boarding was very unorganized and passengers sat on a full transfer bus for 30 minutes while the employees continued to try and fit more passengers from the transfer onto a packed bus. No one seemed to be in charge to tell the bus to bring the passengers to the plane (literally 100 yards away) and come back fro the remaining passengers."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and friendly. Enjoyed flying with them. I was able to get a dinner voucher for the delayed flight. The plane is quite large and has decent leg room for all. Lots of movies to see and tv shows."
Cons: "The air traffic control computers crashed at KEF. So all flights to the USA and Canada were delayed 3 hours or more. My seat didn't recline evidently because I was at an emergency exit."

Nothing

British Airways does not even operate out of Nairobi anymore. I was forced to but an additional ticket with another airline just to arrive home. Terrible!

Food Time

Pros: "Yes it was a smooth comfortable flight"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Cons: "Great experience"
Pros: "Our flight attendant was awesome. Very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The cabin temperature was cold and the flight was delayed by over an hour."
Pros: "Crew and food was good, can do better"
Cons: "Seating system awful, in business class Especially In the center, crazy engineering"
Pros: "Yes.. crew was awesome.. Wish they did not charge us for drinks the second time around"
Cons: "Free drinks throughout the entire flight"
Cons: "Flight were delayed abnd canceled"
Pros: "Once again BA 297 was more than an hour late departing because BA could not get bags and cargo loaded."
Cons: "See above. If BA cant get A380 loaded for on time departure, get more baggage handlers or use a different aircraft."
Cons: "Because of inability to load baggage at LHR we were over an hour late departing. Upon landing in ORD the CSM noted that many bags did not make flight. This is very poor service."
Pros: "Great value for the money, nicely priced round trip. Very well scheduled flights, good connections, easy to travel."
Cons: "Little legroom on long flights, no wi fi on board overseas flights, even for purchase. No food available on Europe international flights, but for purchase."
Cons: "The plane was actually about to fly off when it suddenly skidded to a stop. We weren't informed about the reason, but all of a sudden, the plane couldn't take off for over two hours. My family and I ended up missing our connecting flight home. BA tried compensating with food vouchers and rebooking us onto another flight, but our family got split up in the process and we were all assigned to different middle seats."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Missed flight due to incompetence"
Cons: "Despite being on board for over 9 hours, we were only provided one meal. The one snack that was also provided was merely a snack size chocolate bar. I have been on plenty of shorter and similar length flighrs that provided a much more reasonable amount of food. This seems to be the result of BA cutting corners on customer service."
Cons: "British Airways would not let me board the original flight (even though I would only be in Istanbul to change planes), because I did not have a Turkish Visa. I may have lost my ticket payment as well."
Pros: "Flight attendants were to top in the industry. Caring and caring. They are the face of your airline. Give them the right tools, they function well. I could not have been treated better as a Frequent traveler."
Cons: "Reservation process online does not show you that you are buying a bullshit Business Class seat. You pay a premium for Business class and granted, the meal was great, something the Coach class did not get BUT they should tell you when booking that that you are sitting in coach with a table blocking the middle seat, not truly a Business class seat. Dumb down your operations but don't insult your customers. Tell them what they are getting when booking a bus type business class seat. Worst business practice ever, driven by European style of travel BUT call it premium economy, not BUSINESS."
Pros: "Excellent service all around. Would definitely fly Iberia again"
Cons: "Flight connection in Chicago for flight to Austin was missed. Had to stay the night in Chicago instead of getting home to Austin that day."
Pros: "entertainment options were good & staff was nice. Flights were both on time."
Cons: "I was very disappointed in the serious lack of legroom on the flight. I would think of a flight was 8 hours there would at least A little leg room. I paid for a seat and the lady next to me kept raising the arm rest and spilling into my seat. I had to lean over into the aisle and was miserable the entire flight. The guy in front of me also reclined his seat all the way and I couldn't get my tray down and it took a lot of effort to get out to use the restroom. I was beyond disappointed with how little leg room there was and I am only 5'6". I completely understand that more seats mean more money for airline, but this isn't even safe in the event of an emergency."
Pros: "Professional service, felt safe. Good cost."
Cons: "Only fed one full meal on our transatlantic flight, and got one snack otherwise. Took awhile to take our trays which caused a very long line for the bathroom after. On our inter Europe flight, no snacks were included."
Pros: "Nothing. Zero. Zilch."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 hours due to a mechanical issue, per pilot before takeoff. SOMETHING happened & we were all tossed about the cabin of the plane. When it was all said & done, 1 flight attendant had a broken nose, 1 had a concussion, I hit my head in 2 spots, and a little boy hit his head & threw up. I am not a dramatic person, but I've never been on a plane & thought I was going to die – until this flight. Emergency landing in St. Louis instead of Chicago. The EMT crew on the ground? Felt like amateur hour. I have photos to back these events up."
Pros: "The entertainment system & the food."
Cons: "The seating was a little tight and there was no lunch before arrival..."
Cons: "They had a smaller crew and took a long time to serve food. People were getting food in different rows and in random order. Our luggage also took a long time to get off the plane."
Pros: "Fortunately, BA got us on another flight--so our vacation plans weren't totally ruined!"
Cons: "Unfortunately we didn't receive notification that the originally scheduled flight no longer existed. We had paid a higher price to use the regional airport. When attempting to check-in online, there was no flight. The new flight involved a 2 hour drive to a different and added 2 weeks of parking charges that we wouldn't have otherwise had."
Pros: "Crew was nice and food was decent. Flight left a little late but made up time in the air so arrived timely."
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic - after having first class and preferred passengers board, it was a free for all for all other passengers, which doesn't make a lot of sense and caused a long line. Due to a malfunctioning piece of equipment, the plane was about 90 degrees during boarding and while waiting for takeoff, which was pretty miserable. Temperature was fine after takeoff. The plane itself was very old, seats were cramped, and the screens for movies/tv (and selections themselves) were very poor, which is disappointing for an 8 hour flight. There were no power hookups either, which my Aer Lingus flight a few days beforehand offered. Finally, the passenger in front of me put his seat back while the plane was boarding, making it a struggle to get into my seat while boarding and to get out of it to let others in my aisle out from time to time for the restroom. Can't really blame the last one on the airline, but it added to the misery."
Pros: "Individual tv stations, great customer service."
Cons: "Not a big snack before we landed."
Pros: "Movies and tv."
Cons: "The food was poor. The staff so so."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "The chicken meal was one tiny slab or meat-about two inches by 1 inch (5 cm x 2.5 cm in Metrics). It was dreadful."
Pros: "Good entertainment choices, delicious meal, nice spanish red wine."
Cons: "Tight seating was fairly uncomfortable."
Cons: "did not have vegetarian food display of journey on 3d map a very very poor one - poor screen control, graphics , speed"
Pros: "Missed the BA flight, ended up flying on UA"
Pros: "food and video entertainment"
Cons: "mysterious baggage problem that was not adequately explained by Captain. Staff were choatic in supposedly checking bags to passengers, but only in an erratic fashion. As a result flight was delayed by 2 hours."
Pros: "Left and arrived early"
Cons: "Twice requested water that never came. On landing, the plane swerved and felt like it dipped to the right before straightening out. a little unnerving."
Pros: "Flight crew professional appearance"
Cons: "unable to upgrade/purchase an economy comfort seat only 2 offers of water through out flight -- and one of those was 1/2 hour before landing"
Pros: "AA has domestic US mkt. monopoly - they don't care to improve. People will not stop traveling so take them for suckers!!!"
Cons: "On flight service"
Pros: "Our original flight was delayed an hour, then 4 hours, then eventually cancelled. The last gate crew gave us no updates other than saying it was being delayed to a maintenance check. We eventually had to rebook our direct flight from ORD to CDG to then ORD to LHR and then to CDG. Because of this delay we missed most of our first day in Paris. The flight crew from LHR to CDG was very polite and friendly! I will be doing business with British Airways again in the near future. I will not be doing business with American Airlines anytime soon. Neither will my friends and family once they find out about my horrible experience with their lackluster customer service."
Cons: "Everything that involved American Airlines and my 7 hour flight delay."
Cons: "BA lost luggage. BA flight from LHR to ORD was late, causing me to miss my connecting flight to Reno. Was re-routed to RNO via LAX by AA (all direct flights from ORD to RNO for next 3 days). Flight to LAX was late andI arrived at midnight. Flight to RNO. BA personnel not helpful for reimbursing expenses."
Cons: "Entertainment was broken for the entire flight. Wasn't ideal. Drinks were brought around very infrequently."
Pros: "I'm alive and i eventually arrived at my final destination."
Cons: "50 characters is too few. the check in crew made me miss my flight."
Pros: "Flight attendants friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Plane was stuffy upon entering. No ability to have cooler air as no individual air vents. Flight attendant said no cool air until in the air which was quite awhile-half hour or more."
Cons: "we had to take a tram >5 min to plane out in middle of runway and then we sat on the plane for >1 hour"
Pros: "I go good service in London with the assist. I liked my seat. All the crew were very helpful. Seat was okay and my travel companions were okay also. The flight was late on arrival in Chicago. But they had wheel chair assist and a nice girl Veronica that stayed with me until I got the shuttle to the Reniassance Hotel in Chicago. Great room and comfortable. Nice to have the dinner and breakfast coupons. I got assist to the airport in the van and help boarding my plane to El Paso. I give British Air ways an excellent star."
Cons: "Just the overnight but British Airways made it fine."
Pros: "I liked the travel assist. They were very nice and helpful. Made checking in fast and courteous. I will use the assistant service again when traveling. I have trouble walking long distances and this was helpful. The girl that helped me in Chicago to wait and get to the hotel after I had to do an overnight was so great. Thank you for this service. It is like the help in the Trains in England. Again thank the young girl that helped me. She is gold star in my book. I loved the Renaissance in Chicago. Good work"
Pros: "Flight attendants were nice. Had a special meal and it was pretty good compared to regular meal. Another orange express card to get to my connection."
Cons: "Wasn't helped as much to get through to my connection by employees and the security lines were absolutely ridiculous"
Pros: "Loved the BA flight over to UK, comfort, Diabetic food, movie, crew. Very nice"
Cons: "I wasn't happy with flight back to US Not liking American Airlines , food and sad with not a choice of movie. No monitors in seat in front."
Pros: "Good beverage and food service."
Cons: "The movies could not be started on demand but only on schedule and could not be paused and restarted"
Pros: "but few are excellent. This one came close. The ticket agent for American Airlines at FCO/Roma was excellent. Altho this flight was 'billed' as a British Airways flight, it was operated by American. A little confusing when one thinks they are ticketing on a specific carrier only to be 'baited and switched' to another. That said, the equipment was in great condition, the video worked during the flight, the movie choices were very current. The food was airplane food. What more can one say."
Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised at being upgraded to business class. First time I ever slept horizontally on a flight! Food was great as well."
Cons: "The seats between me and my neighbor could have had more privacy i.e. a partition so I didn't have to disturb him by watching movies as he slept. Also, had to jump over sleeping people to go to the bathroom as the extended bed did not give much room to walk."
Pros: "empty plane"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "Free Wi-Fi and entertainment. Landed early."
Cons: "Way too crowded during Covid, every single seat was taken. Then, to make things worse, they let people in with food so they'd have the excuse to unmask in-flight. On top of which, they passed around snacks (in a 2-hr flight?? during Covid??) so 80% of the plane took their masks off to eat their pretzels and drink their water. Unacceptable."
Cons: "Me and my husband traveled with my infant son and thebstaff was very accomodating. They evn allowed us to change seats to ensure my son was not next to another person."
Cons: "If we boarded and left on time"
Cons: "Food and drinks"
Cons: "Better customer services"
Pros: "Crew was good and mostly attentive."
Cons: "Had to move seat three times because the audio/video didn’t work in my seat. Was very frustrating"
Cons: "Not being an hour late. Someone to manage social distancing at gates. What a mess. Flight was easy tho."
Cons: "This was the most uncomfortable flight of my life. We were packed in like sardines during COVID. This was the least amount of legroom I've ever had on a flight."
Pros: "They were ensuring everyone wore the requirements of masks on the flight or you didn't fly."
Cons: "There was no social distancing on the flight due to it being full. We had to switch out planes which caused an hour delay. No food and no one came for trash which I just left my empty cup on the seat. No flight attendants came through during the duration of the flight. The Wifi didn't work but I didn't need that for once."
Cons: "Both flights were overbooked. Social distancing doesn’t apply to American Airlines."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "Everything from boarding to landing the flight and atleast could have informed the next connection that we would be late by a few minutes so we could have caught that flight. Instead we ended running around the airport for no reason."
Cons: "Flight was super hot! And uncomfortable. Not sure if A/C was working"
Pros: "Air Crew was professional and polite - flight was quick and lasted less than 90 minutes in the air, was overall enjoyable"
Cons: "Gate attendant was fairly rude (could be a result of holiday travel stress) - several travelers didn’t speak English fluently, and she would snap at them or roll her eyes they weren’t comprehending instructions. Boarded extremely early (almost an hour) but sat on tarmac for some time - eventually took off about 20 minutes late. Not airlines fault and likely result of holiday backlog Retrieving baggage from plane was biggest issue - use a carry on to but was required to valet bag as opposed to storing overhead. Baggage unloading was late (again, holiday backlog) but no personnel were available to inform passengers of delay, and bags were not in initial cart. Resulted a delay of offloading by roughly 20 minutes. Was ultimately found in the second wave of luggage, and witnessed baggage handlers tossing luggage carelessly onto cart floor. Nothing was damaged but was annoyed at lack of communication and overall disorganization."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to a missing officer. Because of this, I missed my flight from Chicago to Narita Japan. I had to cancel the hotel in Japan and pay $120 cancellation fee. The customer service changed my flight to go to Dallas/Fort Worth TX then fly to Narita Japan next day. They gave me vouchers for hotel stay and meal ($12) which are absolutely minimal compensation after all this headaches. They were unable to upgrade my seat since they’re full. Now the flight to Narita is 2 hour delay and they have changed the gate at least twice. I’m worried if I can get on the next connecting flight to Sapporo due to this delayed schedule. I feel like this whole trip is ruined because the delayed flight from Philadelphia to Chicago. This has been my worst and the most ridiculous flight experience ever. I don’t think I ever want to fly with American Airlines in the future."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was very polite and with a great attitude."
Cons: "The pilot arrived late because he went for a Tim Horton's coffee (I know that because I was in first row and I heard the flight attendants talking about that). Then, after he finally arrived with a tray full of coffees, there was an issue with the jet's computer and had to reset it and we had to wait even more. When we finally arrived, our Gate was taken by other plane already and we had to wait (more) for the first one to be available for us. Then, when we finally got our Gate, there was another issue, now with the "finger". They weren't able to move it and connect it to the plane to get off of it. So we had to wait AGAIN. And finally as soon as we got off the plane, they were supposed to give us our carry ons on the aisle (Because it was a small plane CR700) , but again, we had to wait almost 10 minutes so that they could send the luggage... To make things worse, I had a first class ticket and I couldn't get the perks of it at the airport. Because they said I wasn't flying in an international flight. Come on?! Canada->USA->Mexico is not International??? You lost me AA."
Pros: "We didn’t crash and die. That’s the only positive."
Cons: "Before we boarded I listened to a couple described how they always went ahead in line at boarding because no one ever stopped them. They described how they waited until group 3 was called and then went right through. While we were waiting, we watched them do it again. If you need to cram people into tiny spaces to be profitable, then you cannot allow them to make it worse by putting back their seats. I spent 90 minutes with a seat back jammed into my chest. We were ignored when handing out snacks, probably because we were invisible behind the seats pushed in our faces. It was one of the most miserable flights I’ve experienced."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Cons: "As a handicaped disabled not able to walk and should be using a wheel chair,as I know from my many previous travels with other companies like lufthanza, klm..etc, I used to be the first traveller to go to the air craft when loading it to take off and the last one who would be leaving it after landing. Even when going through the check and security points I used to go in a special route especially for the handicaped but going with all other normal travelers lines with such amount of time waiting and crowdness is completely inconvenient. what happened through the trip was quit different , going with the travelers or after when they are boarding the craft make it very hard and time consuming , Wish you take care of it, as it's a very important handicaped service. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment"
Pros: "I liked the room."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. Could not get seats together."
Pros: "The staff was fantastic"
Cons: "Well my flight got delayed four separate times. I was stuck in LAX for 3 hours. So much that booked another flight with another airline for the following morning. I had to book a hotel nearby LAX just so I could somewhere to sleep for the night. My luggage made it to Chicago safely, but I didn’t at least not with American Airlines. It took them an hour to tell us that they reassigned the pilot to another flight, not only that when it was delayed the first initial time (40 minute delay) about ten minutes before we were supposed to board they tell us that the flight attendant crew is going to take 30 minutes to get to the gate. Not only but those poor airline service staff were completely unaware of all these changes! They had to find out from the passengers what was going on. Honestly I will never fly with American Airlines ever again!!!"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and enjoyable. Entertainment was great lots of films to choose. Service by the flight crew was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "This was a nighmare!"
Cons: "My flight Paris/London/Manchester?Chicago was the mos impleasant experience I ever had. On July the flight was schedule for 9...pm then delayed for two hours because of a fire, other passengers said, in London. At around 11pm, we were asked to line up for boarding. We stayed on line for an hour and fnally to be told the flight was cancelled. We were treated less than animals by British Airway. No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!!! No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!! We slept on benches at the airport. To be fair to you, I will not recommend British Airway to anyone."
Cons: "American Airlines has terrible customer service. We were unable to board our flight at the Philadelphia airport because when we arrived (almost 2 hours before our flight) the ticket counter was already closed for the evening. No one from American Airlines could help us. We were left stranded at the ticket counter until it reopened at 3:15 am. We are very disappointed and disgusted with the poor service we received from American Airlines. After hearing multiple horror stories from others, it is safe to say we will never fly that airline again."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal is always vegan, I miss the dairy :("
Pros: "The crew was great and made light of a relatively tense situation. This was a connecting flight for many passengers which was delayed so many of us were missing our connections. The crew still did a great job keeping everyone comfortable and boarding us quickly."
Cons: "Unfortunately our plane was grounded in Chicago before our leg of the trip even began. By the time it arrived in YYZ many of us would already be missing connections. Due to a smaller plane we have to stow most of our carry on below which caused a bit of chaos while disembarking trying to retrieve bags and hustle to the next flights. Since I knew before leaving YYZ we were quite delayed my husband drove to ORD to pick me up instead of waiting 24hr for the next flight to St. Louis. It added 8 hours of driving for him to an already long day but we made the best of it."
Pros: "Good is that they sent you to Finnair to correct AA created break in service...why would they pay for it? AA is just an operator per itinerary! Why would you care if ppl get help with connections!"
Cons: "Checked in online on Finnair and automatically for the second connecting flight...and not the first -AA. So, had to check-in again for the first flight at the terminal. Board passes were printed 2 out of 3 by AA and both had errors - wrong gate for the first flight and no boarding info for the second connecting flight - just blank! AA did not provide connecting info until I found an unoccupied employee at the terminal and customer service lines were about 20 people in 2 locations I went to. The connecting info should be in the itinerary they said at customer service...nope, it was not there either!"
Pros: "Entertainment on screens"
Cons: "The gate agent made us starting in boarding group 6 out of 9 to check sizes of bags in the size box and she got into a verbal fight with another passenger. One guy told her she could board but the gate agent said no it didn't fit and she couldn't board. Then the agent claimed she had to gate check her bag and claimed there were no overhead spaces left. So everyone after that had to gate check. When I boarded there were at least 8 empty bins and I had not even gotten to my seat in row 22. The gate agent lied and slowed down the entire boarding process because she want to win a fight and show dominance over a passenger."
Pros: "How fast they had us in the air (5 min early)."
Cons: "In their rush to leave, they didn't communicate with the on board crew about overhead bins and I was forced to check a priceless item that I purposely wanted with me in the cabin. The overheads were empty above my own seat. I wasn't allowed to go back and reclaim my bag because they had already taken it. And they were completely indifferent to my situation, which isn't surprising given they didn't understand the value of my item. Thus, I had a full blown panic attack for my entire 2 hour flight, my medicine being one of the items also in my now checked bag. It was too late, my bag was taken and thrown under the plane by the time it struck. And the flight attendants also had on perfume that brought on a tension headache due to my sensitivity to scents. Considering they work in a recycled air tube, this seems like a vast oversight on their part and should consider that not everyone can handle even the faintest of perfumes. It may not seem like a big deal to them, because mental illness is still seen as a made up thing, but it was enough of a trigger that I will not fly American Airlines again."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "WiFi not working"
Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."
Pros: "We boarded on time and we departed on time. We got into Chicago 30 minutes early. We recently acquired a AA credit card and we got 2 checked bags free and priority boarding (Group 5). In today's world your need priority boarding of some sort on AA or you risk not being able to store you bags in the overhead and may have to get it checked free to your final destination. Also, one of our checked bags had a painting in it that we purchased and the bag and painting arrived unharmed. Good job by AA baggage handlers."
Cons: "Cramped seating. Airlines seem to be moving seats closer together to be able to hold more passengers."
Pros: "The flight was quite emty and instead of packing everyone in the same area, we all had a row for ourselves which was very enjoyable. Flight crew was very nice"
Cons: "The interview by a British Airway agent before the flight. I have been to the USA many times and I totally understand this type of interview, but the agent was aggressive, asking questions that were totally irrelevant. She did not even care about why I was going to the USA or where I was staying. Se was rude and I was really unpleased by her attitude saying it was British Airways way off doing interviews. Again I have had many interviews before flying to the USA, never been a bad exerience before"
Pros: "Seats were overall comfortable, food was adequate, flight attendants where nice, and great selection of movies."
Cons: "We weren't able to choose seats at time of booking and AA gave my fiancee and I seats on different parts of the plane; AA employee suggested we ask other passengers to switch with us, which is not convenient or preferable--it shouldn't be difficult to put 2 people next to each other on such a large plane; almost 3 hour delay made a really long flight (over 10 hours) even longer causing us to miss our connecting flight; boarding passes where reissued but we had to pay extra baggage fees since AA transferred to a different airline and didn't provide vouchers or other ways to cover baggage fees which where originally covered by the ticket; new boarding passes didn't include our TSA precheck status which was on our original boarding passes, so would have had to go back to ticket counter to get boarding passes reissued or go through regular security line--both inconvenient and time consuming-- would be nice if AA paid more attention o these details"
Pros: "Boarding and flight were on time."
Pros: "Staff was courteous. Plane was clean."
Cons: "It was a very grueling trip. Plane left Rome at 9:15a but that meant getting there at 7:15a. Plane was kept dark even though it was daylight outside. Staff was courteous but did not particularly demonstrate awareness of the strain on the travelers being cramped for 10+ hours. Plane was so cramped that one could not take a stretch walk down the aisles to alleviate muscle cramp being in same position for 10 hours. My ultimate destination was San Jose, CA, but that entailed a wait at O'Hare from 12:30p to 8p. Again, staff uninterested in traveler comfort in these parameters. American felt okay to delay my last leg from Chicago to San Jose an hour later than original scheduled, but offered no compensation for the addition to my discomfort. The switch from British Airways to American was a surprise. New flight numbers, change increased my travel stress. I am only 5'3" and not obese, yet could not really fit in my seat: kept getting bumped by passers by in aisle. Airline uninterested in passenger comfort."
Pros: "The complementary wine was nice. The raspberry sponge cake was nice. Nice options for entertainment."
Cons: "No one in the entire airport knew what flight I was talking about when I told them it was Iberia + flight number. People were saying I must have the wrong airport. I almost missed my flight because of this. Everything was through American airlines. It would have been nice to know this going in. Also it was tough doing transfers because once again, none of the departure screens refer to "Iberia flights." It was also tough to check-in. Instructions were not clear in terms of the booking number to use. The Iberia app had a lot of usability problems. The seats are too cramped. I'd have to take out a loan to be able to afford business class or 1st class. It's absolutely horrible for everyone in coach. Especially for long flights as this one. The food was subpar, but that is to be expected in my opinion. Would have been nice to offer complementary headphones. I wasn't able to utilize the entertainment because my headphones are blue tooth. Upon arrival, we had to sit on the tarmac for 20 minutes because there was another airplane in our spot."
Cons: "Check in staff was unprepared for volume of people. When asking an American Airlines agent if I could use the priority check in because I had priority seating I was told no. I was informed by a customer going that way that I indeed could. When I got in line for the priority check in, the agent looked over and very loudly said that I was in the wrong check in area. Given the volume at which it was said to me I felt embarrassed, and was upset at the fact that I then had to respond that I indeed was in the correct location."
Cons: "My flight was delayed 4 times from Columbus to Chicago due to an ATC issue in Chicago. On the 4th delay announcement I had to rebook my international flight for the following day because my connection was leaving Chicago while I was still in Columbus. I had to rebook and get a hotel for the night on my own expense since American Airlines won't pay if it is weather related even though the weather was not the issue, rather air traffic control. The plane we got the next day was a smaller uncomfortable plane with zero entertainment and a crew that projected they would rather be anywhere else. I don't blame them, my experiences with American Airlines had been progressively getting worse."
Pros: "Despite the boarding process, the on-flight crew was nice. The seats were comfortable. Also, I like the in-plane sockets and entertainment screens."
Cons: "When preparing to board, the two clerks at the gate were very rude. I had a carry-on suitcase, a laptop bag, and a small camera bag. They wouldn't let me board, claiming that my camera bag was a third item that I couldn't have. They then tried to force me to check the suitcase which i explained that I did not want to do, before giving me the chance to place the camera bag in the suitcase (which it fit just fine). They were not understanding or friendly and really made me question my decision of flying with American Airlines."
Pros: "Having flown long haul with American numerous times, this time I was pleasantly surprised by several things. Firstly, the brand new plane with excellent in-seat entertainment choices, power points at every seat, more comfortable chairs with better head rests and even window dimmers vs. window shades, allowing you to look outside the whole flight. Secondly, the food was much improved...definitely better quality and tastier than typical airline food. And thirdly, better service from flight attendants who actually smiled. Keep up the good work. This represents a real step change."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Cons: "We booked flights through British Airways but flew American Airlines. The check in process was a stressful mess: we were forced to stand in long customer service lines both on our first flight from LAX to Chicago and again during our very short layover in Chicago to Dublin to ensure that our bags were checked all the way to our final destination. Very stressful, and it didn't help that the gate crew was extremely rude and unprofessional. It is very inconvenient that we could not choose our seats beforehand."
Pros: "The gentlemen from the wheelchair service who was there to pick us up when we arrived in Heathrow went above and beyond his duties. Instead of passing us over to another wheelchair attendant as we needed to switch terminals, he stayed with us thru the terminal change until we were on the airplane. We needed to get our boarding passes at Heathrow from a different airline and he helped us with this. Kudos to him!! The attendants on this flight were very helpful when my husband was having a diabetic reaction and I was vomiting form air motion sickness. We were a mess!! However the flight attendants were sure we had a wheelchair in Chicago and helped us with our bags as we were exiting the plane. Nice Job"
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Pros: "The crew was friendly and did their best, the flight took off my schedule"
Cons: "They didn't have individual tvs which was disappointing but showed three movies instead on screens. They announced the movies being shown on the flight at the beginning and then proceeded to show three completely different things, some just being random tv shows. The whole middle section of the plan had static in their headphones so they were unable to watch the movies. The crew was friendly but seemed very confused as if it was their first time working together. Announcements were choppy And confusing. They also asked me to pay 190 dollars extra to sit with my husband. Not the best experience"
Pros: "•Boarding was easy - small plane. •No crazy flight maneuvers, so I guess good pilots"
Cons: "•Cash only for drinks?! C'mon AA, it's 2017. •Charging for checked bags is greedy, I don't care if others do it, that's not a good excuse + Southwest doesn't charge. •Plane left 30 min late (and arrived 30 late), then had to sit on Tarmac waiting for a gate. •Placed us at the farthest bagged claim from our arrival gate (all bagge claims walking up to ours were empty), so thanks for thinking of the customer first there. •I reserved an aisle seat, they changed me to window without asking. Thanks. •Overall, there are too many other choices in airlines... I may just be one customer, but this is one less they'll have, as other major carriers haven't ever racked up this amount of annoyances in a single trip with me before."
Pros: "Boarding was a mess - there were no announcements about boarding and the gate agent did nothing to promote order in the gate area. Thank goodness for the new planes on this route - the old planes with the blue "leather" seats were so overdue to be retired. Onboard entertainment was great and every seat had a USB port and AC outlet. Smoothest landing ever, I couldn't even tell when the wheels hit the pavement! It was also the first time I recall a female captain on American - maybe the smooth landing wasn't such a coincidence :)"
Pros: "The staff were amazing. Very accommodating and with great dispositions. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "For an international flight the seats were extremely tiny and the plane itself only had a few tv screens posted in the middle of the plane so everyone had to watch the same thing."
Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "While boarding the plane an AA employee actually grabbed the 1/4 full gym bag out of my boyfriend's hands and said he had to check it (even though it had fit under his seat next to his backpack on our previous American Airlines flight). Boarded and saw there was still plenty of open overhead bin space. Had to wait 30 extra minutes at our destination to claim his unnecessarily checked bag. This is on top of poor customer service from the gate agents and a long delay on our outbound flight. Will not choose to fly American Airlines in the future"
Pros: "The movie selection and how often we were given beverages."
Cons: "I was selected for a random inspection. I was pulled aside and went through a separate check in process. I completed everything I was instructed to do and as I'm boarding, I'm pulled aside and told I needed to go back to pre clearance because someone forgot to punch a hole in my boarding pass. The stewardess and j had to run all the way back to security so I could go through the whole process again. I delayed the flight and everyone was upset. It was completely unnecessary. Simply because one employee didn't do their job, I delayed a transatlantic flight to Chicago. Best part, I arrived at the airport four hours before my flight. Also, the seats are incredibly uncomfortable. And I was separated from my traveling companion for this entire process. Had I missed the flight, she would never have known."
