Pros: "This is a 12 hour flight - but we have no complaints whatsoever - by far our best experience and we have flown all of the big mid-east airlines."
Cons: "The entertainment system was a bit dated, touch screen did not work well. The leg-room was tight but I am of average height. Would have been tough for someone over 6ft."
Pros: "The price can't be beat for a quality, national carrier. The next highest price for my series of flights was $600 more and would have taken twice as long. Good food, good alcoholic beverages, great movies, and a nice crew too."
Cons: "Turkish Airlines was delayed over an hour. It seems like slight delays do happen with this airline; however, you do get what you pay for and I can't really complain much over a one hour delay given the ticket price."
Pros: "Same as above"

Cons: "Server was mean"

Pros: "I like the cree"

Cons: "See first comment."

Pros: "The crew - seemed very amenable and pleasant on this flight. One helped me move to effectively solve the acute posture problem."
Cons: "The seat - window by request, but it was in front of an emergency exit The seat - is jammed in - very tight - could not put it back to relax, and could not relax my left side by the window. My left shoulder and arm and left hip started hurting - couldn't sleep - took 2 days to get rid of the numbness in my arm. I asked to move, and it became obvious that there were many empty seats in the next section behind. I moved, and my comfort improved. Why was I given such a posture killer - especially on such a very long flight with seats to spare?"
Pros: "The food and service is always good. In flight entertainment and nice planes!"
Cons: "To board- it's just a long queue - any way to shorten line so we don't have to stand for so long?"
Cons: "Seat was too small and really uncomfortable"
Cons: "My video player had substantially less options than the rest of my aisle. The food was below average."

Pros: "Staff on board was cordial und Wunderbar"

Cons: "Food was pretty bad"
Pros: "1. The crew was very pleasant and responsive. 2. The entertainment selections were plenty, recent and without extra cost. 3. The food was nice (if you weren't having meat options). My travel companion was a bit disgusted by the meat. I enjoyed the pasta!"
Cons: "1. The seats were extremely uncomfortable without sufficient cushioning. It felt like sitting on a plank. My back still hurts. We also had to straighten up the seats during meals because it was so bad for the person behind. 2. Boarding is a bit disorganized. Perhaps try splitting the boarding process into zones so it isn't a mad house free for all after the initial boarders. 3. On my flight to Frankfurt, the plane was half empty, yet my seat was changed from row 8 where I would have had almost no one near me back to row 23 where they had cramped all the passesngers into one area of the plane. This was done without request or explanation."
Cons: "Breakfast bun was not tasty - too much bread and not healthy at all."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, the crew very nice, the food good and many good movies to choose from."
Cons: "Could have used a few more snacks. But didn't bother to ask for any either."
Pros: "non stop to Frankfurt very timely scheduleing was able to find reasonably priced flight to meet my travel needs."
Cons: "I felt the food was worse not good or tasteless. choices were as bad as previous flight in the fall. I have to bring snacks to make it bearable."
Pros: "Was given an upgraded seat due to the confusion on my confirmed seat being given away."
Cons: "Confusion on my confirmed seat assignment caused major frustration when in a foreign country. We took off late so missed my shuttle in Seattle so had to wait 2 hours for the next shuttle."
Pros: "Entertainment, flight crew was courteous and helpful, lots of snacks, water, and free wine!"
Cons: "One of our pieces of luggage did not make it back with us. The good thing is that the Lufthansa staff was helpful, the automated emails kept me informed, and the bag was delivered to me as soon as possible. Seems to me it was as good as it gets when a piece of luggage gets lost."
Cons: "No food service for a evening flight. Delayed because of a toilet problem."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive. Our flight was delayed twice, once in Frankfurt for late luggage and the ground crew left without pushing back the plane, then again in Seattle for a plane on the tarmac on fire. A 10 hour flight turned into 14 hours but I still enjoyed it. There was plenty of leg room and the seats were very comfortable. The entertainment was very enjoyable and the meals were satisfying. For such a long haul Lufthansa made the time flyby."
Cons: "The crying baby a couple rows back. Also some smelly passengers that have poor hygiene."
Pros: "Lufthansa rocks!"
Pros: "Entertainment and crew was excellent"
Cons: "One flight assistant seemed a bit gruff and impatient compared to the others . Also food was nothing special. We could have used more water offerings and trash pickups during the flight afterwards the cabin was a mess."
Pros: "They didn't charge me for my surfboards which was great. It was my only check-on bag and under two meters and that should be free on every airline. Flight attendants were very nice and professional. I gave the food 5 stars based on other airline food, I'm not expecting restaurant quality at 37,000'. Movie selection was adequate for me, although I've seen some complaints in the reviews here."
Cons: "It was a little tricky checking in on my phone. The check email reminder didn't carry the info I needed to check in which required extra searching and copying and pasting. That experience could be streamlined. There was group confusion when being directed to board the plane on two flights."

Cons: "Nothing to report :)"
Pros: "Captain was personable and made the flight more enjoyable"

Cons: "Nothing. I was a happy camper from beginning to end."
Pros: "Very friendly and accommodating crew, efficient service, okay food options and good quantity for a lengthy flight. Very happy that a vegetarian option isn't a battle anymore! The entertainment options were very nice, the time passed quickly with the many movie options."
Cons: "No real complaints, maybe the cabin air was a little stuffy, but it's too be expected on a flight of 11.5 hrs. Crew offered water and juice throughout the flight which helped."
Pros: "Vissited my brother in law in Karlsruhe Germany wonderful trip to and from Frankfurt"
Pros: "Crew was great... food was wonderful. The lie-flat seat made my day."

Pros: "crew is an absolute plus- stands out from most any other airline"
Pros: "They held the flight for us."
Cons: "Something to eat"
Cons: "I have never been on an AA flight where the entertainment system has worked all the way through. Additionally, when willl there be plugs on these planes? In a six and half hour flight where you need to use your device (when the system is working), this seems like it is a little old school"
Pros: "I was moved up to seat 9E from 16E move leg room makes a difference"
Cons: "I had started a movie on the earlier flight but I could not finish it because it was not offered on this flight"
Cons: "Bigger seats"
Pros: "Great Crew"
Cons: "More drinks"
Cons: "Better snacks."
Cons: "Wider seating"
Pros: "nice entertainment when you use the AA app."
Cons: "Unbelievable turbulent and bumpy ride. Not AA's fault but the question was "how was the trip?" It was a white-knuckle ride."
Pros: "that it's over."
Cons: "sat on tarmac for 45 minutes! AFTER landing... unacceptable."
Cons: "Everything. My first leg of this trip was the worst flight I had ever been on and this leg lived up to that standard"
Pros: "The attendant in first class was really good at his job. The rest seemed a bit lost"
Cons: "The food. The "lasagna" looked and tasted like it came from chef boyardee can"
Cons: "Well organized loading, consistent beverage service"
Cons: "Weather related, mostly, so not AA’s fault"
Cons: "One crew member is not particularly helpful when passengers needed assistance."
Pros: "- entertainment - smooth boarding"
Cons: "- very small airplane for a 6 hour flight - no comfort seats"
Pros: "Seats in general Economy ended up being fairly comfortable and headrests would bend enough to actually support my head while sleeping. Nice to have granual baggage tracking info in the AA app."
Cons: "Overhead entertainment video quality was horrible. Awful user interface for trying to figure out and use the personal device streaming entertainment. Did not order food on the flight, but options were very limited for a 5.5 hour night-time flight (8p EST -> 11p PST)"
Pros: "Both the departing and returning flights departed in schedule and arrived a solid half hour early. Staff was accommodating and friendly, and very helpful with me juggling luggage and a toddler by myself."

Pros: "seating assignment"
Cons: "wish the crews were more pleasant. some were pretty rude to some passengers"
Pros: "The aircratf and on time operation"

Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Not eventful."
Cons: "Left s half hour late because they had to shift cargo, then we taxied on the runway for what seemed like a half hour. My wife and I purchased our tickets in July but could never pick our seats and ended up 9 rows apart."
Pros: "Flight was great. Crew was very attentive and the flight was under booked giving my wife and I an empty middle seat. The entertainment was vast consisting of movies and TV shows to pass the time."
Pros: "Early for arrival!! Love that!"
Cons: "No entertainment and no gate printed on my ticket. My flight to Dallas was delayed and I had to waste time figuring out what gate to take a train to."
Pros: "Left on time, relatively comfortable considering I had already spent almost 9 hours on a previous flight, landed 30 minutes early"
Cons: "Mixed feelings about the entertainment app, I was pleased that something was available at all, however had the person sitting next to me not mentioned I needed an app to watch the in flight entertainment moments before it would have been too late to use the internet to download it, I would not have been able to use it, unless paying for a limited time package from AA to use the internet to download the app. A better job of advertising of the gogo app is needed more than the booklet in the seat pocket. Also I was only able to watch one movie, after that the system kicked me out saying high usage was making it not work for me. The gate changed a couple of times which had me trawling up and down the H and K concourses, could have done without that after the 9 hour journey I had already taken."
Cons: "no charging station"
Pros: "Comfortable, very friendly helpful staff"
Cons: "Nothing, well I miss the movies shown on their divides rather than my tablet"
Pros: "Everything was great, but they didn't serve ANY complementary food on a 5 hour flight. What happened to lunch?"
Pros: "Lovely service, but less comfortable plane... nothing terrible though"
Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."
Pros: "Long walk and less than an hour. Very difficult for senior. No assistan e available."
Cons: "The pain from carrying bag between gates"
Pros: "Helpful crew"
Cons: "Would have liked to be able to power up digital devices"
Pros: "Other than a 2 hour delay due to a mechanical issue (identified after everyone boarded) the flight was ok. No electical connections for equipment. That would be an improvement. Also, out of a lot of meals that people request, and that was at the beginning of service in the premium seats."
Pros: "He enjoyed everything about the flight it was comfortable the crew was excellent he met nice ppl thank you for the safety and class."
Cons: "Longer flights should have screens in the headrests"
Cons: "Going through immigration in Dallas is a disaster. The wait is eternal. None-US passengers seemed to get processed faster."
Cons: "Despite arriving more than an hour ahead of time, I had to wait in a long line to get to the ticket counter and by the time I got there the assistant refused to check my bag. I then had the choice of catching another flight standby, possibly not even arriving on the same day, or changing my ticket for an obscene amount of money. I hope to never deal with AA again."
Cons: "Flight was late. More than doubled my layover time"
Cons: "The captain announced that the flight crew exceeded 9 work hour per day due to the takeoff delay so the passengers were forced to sit and wait in a stuffy stationary aircraft for 2 hours prior to takeoff until a different crew could arrive to service the flight."
Cons: "As it was the continuation of an international flight, I believe I travelers like me deserved to be treated with free food and not just drink and water."
Pros: "left and arrived on time. helpful staff. no glitches. reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "i did not rate food and entertainment because i did not partake."
Pros: "Free beverage"
Cons: "My bag was lost and it still hasn't showed up at the airport. Seems like I would get some kind of credit of some kind for this inconvenience."
Pros: "The pilot was charming, and really hugged Mt. Rainier on the way in - Made for an incredible view in the moonlight!"
Pros: "I was upgraded to the comfort economy after waiting 10 hours at DFW for my flight."
Cons: "After being in DFW airport for 10hrs all I wanted to do was watch a movie on board and sleep. Go figure, my TV didn't work. I called the attendant and she said she would reset them. The "resetting process" took a while. She attempted, and the other stewardess did as well. They said that the TV issue that *some* of the people were experiencing wasn't able to be fixed by them and only by the company that provides it's service. So there wasn't anything that could be done. I know that at least the two guys that were traveling next to me had issues with the tv monitors as well. It was just driving it home that I will never fly on American Airlines again. I don't ask for much these days while flying, it's not like it's a luxury anymore. But the saddest part is that customer satisfaction is completely out of the question. Just pay the extra money and fly another airline. -Deidre Fugate"
Pros: "I did not like have to stay in a hotel room when I could be sleeping in my room I'm on medication I don't even have my medicine with me because American Airlines had engine trouble in Dallas we went back to the Terminal 3 times before they ever got it fixed slit throat me late getting into Seattle and I missed the flight to Yakima I don't feel that this was my fault I didn't nothing to delay the airplanes and I walked as fast as I could to the terminal on in Seattle so I didn't have such a pleasure to little trip but your airline get put me up in a hotel but it's still not does not change the fact I have my blood pressure medicine and about 10 other medications but my blood pressure is the biggest and I will think twice before I fly Alaska Airlines again"
Pros: "I got home"
Cons: "No tvs"
Cons: "Tight seating"
Pros: "Nostalgic plane ride"
Cons: "Use more modern plane for these short trips. No drinks offered due to turbulence. Old Bombardier plane had no way of storing carry-ons other than beneath seat, thus limiting leg space"
Pros: "Roomier seats overall, the headrest screens and USB ports are great!"
Cons: "We paid extra for seats with more leg room and got the same as everyone else. Why the charge? Our departure was delayed. The plane had some sort of fragrance regularly coming thru the ventilation that irritated my sinuses and made me ill. The water for the only service on the flight (for coach anyway) was warm and tasted odd. Cabin temperature was too warm (multiple logical arguments can be made for cooler temps over warmer)"
Pros: "Flight was not overbooked Flight left early & arrived early No delays from AC"
Pros: "The plane was confortable and the drive also"
Cons: "The waiting time at the Toronto airport was exagerated"
Pros: "My 15 minute nap"
Cons: "The male crew member seemed to be having a rough day."
Cons: "Temperature varied widely throughout the flight. Entertainment system down for over an hour. No fresh food left for the back of the plane - Late departure."
Cons: "Employees very poorly trained in dealing with problems. While our flight was okay, the previous flight was overbooked and a number of transferring customers were bumped because their flight was late. I understand this is common practice, but the employees handled it VERY poorly, even yelling at the passengers when they voiced their dismay at what was going to be a very long layover after a very long international flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew, good food and comfortable seats"
Pros: "Service is good"
Cons: "Film selection is ok."
Pros: "Flight attendant was great"

Cons: "Flight was about an hour late due to crew problems."
Pros: "Boarding was quick. Crew were good."
Cons: "We left Rome over an hour late due to a computer problem that had to be reset. The pods in business class were the old style and not very comfortable for sleeping."
Pros: "It was fine. :-)"
Pros: "The price was good and connections were well-timed, and my seat-mate was a nice guy!"
Cons: "There was no food on a 5-hr international flight, the video screen didn't work well, and the flight attendant was having a rough day. And we took off at least 30 minutes late due to a couple of technical issues."
Pros: "Flight crews were great."
Cons: "Ground crews and Air Canada's booking system caused no end of trouble. Weather started the problem but human error meant an incredibly stressful rebooking, requiring three agents at ticketing plus the IT help desk just to figure out what the agent I had reached over the phone had done. In Quebec City not nearly enough agents to check bags; huge lines, people being shunted to the front so they wouldn't miss their flights."
Cons: "No legroom at all. Try to squeeze far too many passengers."
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "The flight left really late, which meant that we had to rush to the next terminal when we arrived in Chicago for the transfer flight."
Pros: "Our flight attendant, Sabrina, was fantastic. Quite friendly and helpful. You can tell she loves her job. She patiently answered questions and made the flight really pleasant."
Pros: "Crew friendly and helpful. Short flight. Great service (got a soda and pretzels on a 30 minute flight)"
Cons: "Small, worn plane."
Pros: "Short flight. Simple. Smooth."
Cons: "There was a short delay because crew was caught up in security."
Pros: "It was a very short flight, but with all the weather issues in Seattle at the time, they did everything they could to get us off on time (maybe even early) to avoid air traffic control delays."
Pros: "I was really tired and the plane was full but I could nap. Baggage came quickly."
Cons: "No free meal because not technically an international flight I guess."
Pros: "We liked the entertainment options and the crews were very friendly."
Cons: "We didn't like not having blankets on the round-trip flights between Seattle and Toronto."
Pros: "Not really stands out as a positive."
Cons: "Overall came across as not up to the standards of other carriers."
Pros: "Very fast."
Pros: "I flew Seattle to Vancouver to Montrail to Nice. Sept 2 2016 on the way home I flew Nice, Frankfort, Calgary to Seattle Sept 12, 2016"
Cons: "Food from McDonalds would have been 10 times better than food they served. I ate only 2 bites and it smelled bad and made me feel nautilus."
Pros: "Media and staff very good"
Cons: "Airport was empty, plane was empty. But still had to wait to get on due to filled with people who put suitcases away that sat near front but not first class."
Pros: "I liked that I was able to pick my seat. I love the exit row."
Cons: "Being woken up. But it was for a good reason. Personal safety."
Cons: "Air Canada closed the door ten minutes before departure although the knew we were in the terminal trying to get to the gate. Air Canada charged us $315 for a flight two hours later."
Cons: "For the price, the length and the fact that it was an international flight. I would have expected not to be required to paid for luggage and to have some food been provided to us. In particular, after the return flight was delayed considerably due to airplane issues."
Pros: "Roomy seats"
Cons: "All the flights left late. Not enough room for carry on luggage. No free booze on International flight"
Pros: "Flight was on time.Seats were comfortable with adequate leg room."
Cons: "There was no snack offered, just food for sale, and it was a long flight. Also there were several movies listed in the entertainment guide that were not available on the entertainment system. There were not many movies available at all."
Pros: "I enjoyed the selection of movies that they had."
Cons: "Seats are wildly uncomfortable and cramped. I guess that is what you come to expect from flying, but man does it suck. Longer flights, over 4 hours, should include a complimentary snack. It is a long while to go without food, and paying 5 bucks for a small pack of candy is a bit ridiculous."
Pros: "Lovely crew."
Cons: "Seating is tight for anyone with long legs over 6 feet tall."
Cons: "Seats did not recline. It was one of the least comfortable flights I've been on in th past few years."
Pros: "Their 787 is indeed a dream to fly! The flight felt much shorter than on other airplanes."
Cons: "Their website didn't work for checking in, then their offices were closed most of the time, with no 24 hr support, leaving me high and dry on several occasions when I needed to check in, and when I needed to make a special meal request."
Pros: "Always seems to happen with some leg of an Air Canada flight....and they couldn't find my luggage, so delayed my boarding at Customs, too."
Cons: "3 mechanical problems. Two missed flights. 16 hours late. Lost luggage. The crew sent us at wrong place, we were stuck in a room until 6:30 am. We had to sleep on chairs. Everything that could go bad went bad. Will never ever fly with Air Canada again. That is a promise."
Cons: "They overbooked the flight and would not allow me to board even though I had booked my ticket months in advance."
Cons: "Spending 90 minutes going through security and immigration is horrendous. I never experience this when travelling with WestJet. Considering I have not traveled with Air Canada for some time I will not be booking with them again in the near future."
Cons: "40 min flight delayed for 1 and a half hours. Missed connecting flight. Staff was extremely rude to the hordes of people inquiring about missing their connecting flight, and were given different instructions."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Was able to move from my assigned centre of row seat to an aisle seat, which however was I'm the last row outside the toilets. Checked bag came quickly in Seattle. Descent was gradual enough, or something, that my ears, which normally hurt excruciatingly from about 20,00-10,000 feet, barely bothered me."
Cons: "Check in, customs, etc in Toronto was a series of long long lines that took nearly 1.5 hours (not AC's fault but an unpleasant aspect of the trip). Plane was full and very cramped, impossible to get up and walk. The tv monitors on my side/half of the plane conked out midway through flight."
Pros: "Air Canada's cabin attendents make the journey bearable. Keep these people at all costs, becauae they are doing a fantastic job."
Cons: "I prefer the old-fashioned seatback monitor to rental ipads."
Cons: "Pretty terrible for an international airline, charge for drinks, earbuds, no inflight entertainment without pre downloading their crappy app, which was full of ancient, terrible movies. Lots of stuff broken on plane, reading light would turn on/off randomly. Very annoying. Charger did not work, had to use the row next to us"
Cons: "Their entertainment system relied on customer iPads! Software proved nearly impossible to install. Food service very slow."
Pros: "Service was great, food provided on our international flight was delicious and more than plenty. Beverages were tasty, the check-in and boarding process was very smooth and well organized. My wife and I definitely had a great experience."
Pros: "The passenger beside me was nice."
Cons: "Week long convention and showed up 2 hours early. Fell asleep at the gate. Last flight of the night and I was the ONLY person around. None of the 5 staff members thought to wake the middle aged lady asleep by herself. Woke in a panic and they said my flight left a few mins ago. Said they paged me. When I took off my hearing aids they all stood there stunned. They put me on the next flight home 12 hours later. Asked for my bags, no one took them off the plane. Against policy and illegal. Had to sleep at the airport. Very poor experience with the Air Canada staff in Las Vegas."

Pros: "Everything was great except for the food."
Cons: "The hamburger bun was hard as a rock."
Pros: "Every day they take more away from us....the paying customer. ALL major carriers are becoming LCC ( low cost carriers ). Are there no real domestic airlines left. I REALLY miss Continental."
Cons: "I used to enjoy flying. Now I dtead it. There is NOTHING to look forward to. These days you get to pick lhe lesser of all evils. Is there an airline out there that REALLY wants me as a customer???"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Service and flighr smooth"
Pros: "I arrived safely."
Cons: "It's a zoo. It's a DIY of checking in and checking your bags in. No staff is around to help. You are on your own. Unorganized."
Cons: "Late late late. Had to run to get my connection. Not Uniteds fault though. SFO too busy. Will avoid in future."
Pros: "The two people that helped."
Cons: "That United had NO remorse for our inconvenience and offered NO compensations."
Pros: "Everyone and everything was great"
Cons: "30 min delays on both ends."

Cons: "The cabin was too hot."
Cons: "Showed up at airport w 2 15 yr olds traveling alone. We're told we needed to pay $150 each way. We were NOT told when tix were purchased. Accused of lying about the girls ages when we booked. Tix were booked and paid by two different parents and times. Agent relented and waived fee. At the gate we were again challenged and had to go thru it all again. No more United for us!"
Cons: "Confusions on dates from Internet. Your site usually sets its own dates without confirming."
Cons: "Charge for tv!"
Cons: "Should load the plane from the back rather from the front. People in the back can sort their stuff while still be able to load people into the front."
Cons: "Having to pay for Internet sucks"
Cons: "They lost my suitcase."
