Pros: "My 17 year old daughter flew American Airlines to attend a wedding. She recently had spinal surgery and is not able to lift more than 5lbs. After being assured by the airline that staff would help her with her carryon luggage, she was abandoned and ignored by both flight attendants. Each flight attendant referred het to the next, so she is walking back and forth tor their amusement. Tears rolling down her face, finally an elderly passenger helped her. Then the staff gave her attitude the entire flight. She may appear healthy, but she was cut from her neck to her waist and had two rods inserted along with bone grafts. I just cannot believe how awful she was treated."
Cons: "The customer service was terroble. My daughter was humiliated."
Cons: "i decided to purchase a separate direct flight at a different time instead of changing my flight, only to be informed later when i tried to hop on the back end of my original flight, that they had canceled my ticket since i hadnt boarded on the front end of that flight. i had spoken to a customer service rep about my option before purchasing the extra ticket, and she did not mention that this would be an issue. then i had to pay extra to get back on my original flight."

Cons: "My son and I were scheduled to leave Providence to Philadelphia on Monday at 6:05. Flight went through a series of delays until we were finally informed that our flight would not make the flight departing Philly to SF. Rather than fly to Philly during the DNC, we decided to SPEND ANOTHER NIGHT IN PROVIDENCE and take the flight out the next day. This part of the trip caused me to lose a day of work and spend more money on a hotel and meals. This was very poor planning on your part since there were flights flying in and out of both places, but your company was short one aircraft that would have gotten my son and I home on time!!! This was my last flight on American Airlines and I will be sure to spread the word to my friends and family that you have become too unreliable!!"
Pros: "The plane broke in D.C. I had to rent a car to finish the last leg of my trip. They probably won't reimbursement me for either. I try never to book with AA, but it was last minute and I didn't have a choice."

Pros: "Early morning flight so left on time and arrived early. Staff excellent."

Pros: "fast lane boarding"
Cons: "no snacks"
Pros: "Nothing really"
Cons: "Late boarding, had to check the bag, had to wait forever when landed in the plane"
Pros: "Helpful crew. They reset the screen, came around with blankets, headphones and generally tried to make the space habitable."

Cons: "The bags took over 45 minutes to be delivered"
Cons: "Choice of food was very limited as they were missing the food in catalog."

As an economy passenger, I was to purchase a meal between Geneva and Brussels. Since I didn't want a meal I was surprised to learn I also had to pay for a small, regular coffee."
Cons: "Very disappointing, Lufthansa airline sold my return ticket to another customers with out notifying me, so i’m stuck in here now and i have to find another ticket. And of course the flight is not refundable."
Cons: "Switched plane from Brussels to United which saves us 3hrs but then they lost our luggage. This was after we asked them to double-check. They told us that our luggage had been logged-in to our new flight. We are very disappointed in Brussel airline and will not use them again."
Pros: "Entertainment options were awesome!!!"
Cons: "We left late because they were waiting for people from another flight that got canceled to transfer to our flight, and even with the delay, one of my bags got lost. I was the third person to check in for the flight, so I'm not sure how that happened."
Cons: "Delay boarding,delay riching destynation,poor crew service"
Pros: "One positive point. The boarding went well. The flight took off before schedule and arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Cramped seating. Flight attendants hardly seen (they are busy trying to sell stuff). Not a glass of water, if you get thirsty it's 3 euros for a small bottle. You get what you pay for..."
Pros: "Everything about the flight."
Pros: "The flight attendant crew were all very friendly and so good at giving out drinks and water and whatever we needed. I felt really pampered and I wasn’t even in first class. Brussels airlines literally saved my whole trip back from becoming a nightmare because I had a really short connection time in the Brussels airport. I was sprinting to the gate to make my flight and was running real late and they had waited for me! The staff at the gate and at the passport control all were very helpful. I was very impressed by everybody involved and so appreciated that I could make it home as planned instead of having to find a new flight."
Cons: "My husband was rerouted through London because they said he didn't have an ETA to go through Canada. But he does have one. We have the number and Brussels Air was the one that got it for him on his outgoing trip! When I called the airline to get his route details they said he does have one and they saw that he did. So what's up Brussels Air staff? We hope you will offer some recompense for the error and the trouble."
Cons: "Crew was rude, including even the pilot, who was unbelievably rude."
Cons: "Food was bad. Crew was distracted gossiping. They skipped rows during meal times as they were distracted. The seats are the most uncomfortable airline seats I've ever sat in."
Cons: "Service for my mom was great!"
Cons: "Boarding was unorganized. Halfway through the flight, the cabin smells like sweat everywhere."
Pros: "Smooth flight Pleasant staff Smooth boarding process"
Cons: "Super late due to poor management of runway construction in Brussels No entertainment in the cabin"
Pros: "Forgot they were on 24 hour time. Maybe send an alert about that."
Pros: "Be on time"
Cons: "Food, no comfort, movies and music boring"
Cons: "Flight was delayed at the gate due to bad weather. Missed my connecting flight. After a 4 hour wait with customer service, my flight was rescheduled for a departure in 5 hours. I have no access to my suitcase. Prepaid hotel will not reimburse for no show. Such a mess."
Pros: "They were responsive. They had lots of gate agents. You had to initiate the conversation though."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4.5 hrs. The check-in process was not smooth. After additional security screening at the gate everyone was left on the jetway until everyone had their tickets scanned. They were late loading cargo and food."
Pros: "Everything about the airline"
Pros: "The seats were great, we were seated in an exit row, so loads of legroom, we are tall so this is very important. Crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No fault of the airlines, but I was seated next to a very large family with little kids and a baby. I'm usually pretty tolerant, but the back of my seat was kicked for 8 hours and the kids kept running right in front of me causing me to constantly move my legs. Ugh. Food was ok, nothing special, it edible."
Pros: "Flight itself was fine."
Cons: "I tried for numerous days before the flight to buy a piece of baggage online and I kept getting tossed back and forth between Expedia and Brussels Airlines. In the end, I wasn't able to purchase it ahead of time and we had to pay $49 at the airport. I feel entitled to a reimbursement of the difference between the booking online price of $15 and the $49 I paid."
Pros: "Always great to fly on a 5 across Avro."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "I paid for a ticket that includes a hot meal, but a day before the flight they changed their policy so I didn't get any meal. They even asked for money for a cup of water, and this is my red line. The seats recline and comfort is poor."
Cons: "When I got to the airport my airline informed me that it was a standby ticket, which it never told me when booking and I can't believe it wa a standby ticket because it wasn't cheap."
Cons: "There was a a man who I believe is the lead of the serving crew was very disrespectful and mean to passenger. I would never board an airplane when I see this man in the aircraft."
Pros: "The plane took off a few minutes late but arrived on time."
Cons: "We arrived at the airport at 4:30 for 6:25 flight and there were only 3 open windows to check baggage for 4 different airlines. There were over 200 people in line extending out the door and no one was present to explain what was happening. Soon additional clerks arrived and the line began to move, but it took 45 minutes. The gate area was not large enough for all the passengers and there were seats for only a few while we waited and waited."
Pros: "flight staff were very professional."
Cons: "We paid extra for economy plus, but they completely messed up that part of the reservation. Multiple phone calls and run around at the airport. The "upgrade " is a nice one but the hassle was stressful and still not sure if I'll get the $ straightened. Front of plane warm, but back cold."
Cons: "Could not get my boarding pass before reaching my last terminal because it was not ready from Montreal or Toronto, and no staff were available elsewhere in the airport. this prevented me from making necessary purchases to bring with me to Kinshasa, my final destination."
Pros: "The flight was on time!"
Cons: "All of it. Missed an event because of their delay. An event I paid for."
Pros: "It was a short flight, so it was appropriate."
Cons: "No free food and no entertainment. Boarded late."
Pros: "The food, efficient crew"
