I'm reall satisfied with ANA.

Pros: "Love ANA. Always a pleasure."
Cons: "I hated everything about this 8 hour flight. Going to and coming from Toyko. The seats were EXTREMELY, EXTREMELY uncomfortable. I had to keep adjusting my body because my lower back was in so much pain. I ordered a kosher meal for both my sister and I but they only bought it for her. When I asked where was mine they said they didn’t see my name when I was the one who bought the tickets. It was extremely frustrating. I will never fly on this airline again."
Pros: "Well maintained plane, nice staff and over very comfortable."
Cons: "The wifi worked only 1 hr of the 3 hrs I bought"
Cons: "On time is always nice. Overbooked someone in my seat when boarding. On arrival sat for a while to get into the gate on a flight that was already 90 minutes late"
Cons: "We did not make this flight and had to take the train instead"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic and the food was very nice."
Cons: "It really would have been nice to have a vegetarian option!"
Cons: "Movie catalog needs to be expanded"
Pros: "Perhaps the most courteous airline I’ve experienced."
Pros: "I was lucky the flight was not full and the seat next to mine was empty allowing me to relax and sleep well."
Pros: "Flight departed on time, landed on time....excellent service, too."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "It was a quick flight, and as it left at night Japan time, I was able to actually sleep 7 hours or so of the full flight."
Pros: "The cabin crew was always found to be welcoming and co-operative attitude. Rest Rooms (Toilets) were found to be clean whenever visited."
Pros: "My flight is at 9:50 am but I arrived around 5:30 am , as expected the line was already long and one of the crew told us the front desk will not open until 6:30. My husband reserved my ticket going back to US. I was assigned to seat on an exit, but when I went to the gate , one of a female employee keeps telling me if I'm aware I'll be seating on an exit and I said yes , I look for a vacant seat so I can relax while waiting, she went back again and asked me if the front desk desk gave me any paper about the task I have to do when seating on an exit. I read it and understand . She came back again for the third time and borrow my boarding pass and check something and asked me if I want to transfer to another seat, and I said no. I don't know what she wants me to do , but I'm so irritated because she keeps asking me the same question over and over again."
Pros: "Very efficient"
Cons: "Food was not good"
Pros: "The food was great. There was a good selection of shows and movies. The stewardesses came around with water and juice often which was really nice. The bathrooms were clean."
Cons: "The decent into Japan was pretty steep. It made me feel a bit sick and I never get motion sickness. Hardest decent I've ever had and I travel every 2 years. The ascent was excellent though and the flight in general was perfect."
Pros: "The crew was very professional and exceptionally polite and attentive. Possibly the best I have encountered on an international flight."
Pros: "Nice short flight. Houston is easy to navigate. Staff were friendly."
Cons: "They didnt want to board my twins and I early so we blocked the aisle as i got them sorted. I had to sit over the aisle from my children as it was a 2 2 seating but the staff didnt seem to pursue where their mother was even though i was 1 row back. They didn't need me but i thought they should have at least enquired as to where the parent was of 2 11 yr olds. They were also curt trying to rush us off the flight as my daughter was trying to locate a lost item as we arrived. She has limited sight and we need time to get off and to find things.... given she has lost an iPad, and very expensive reading glasses and other things on the trips that span 24 - 36 hrs."
Pros: "Great service and crew. Boarding was quick and efficient."
Cons: "No personal inflight entertainment, but it wasn’t an issue with such a short flight from Sapporo to Tokyo."
Pros: "Friendly staff. English language not too much of an issue. Ample personal space in economy class compared to other carriers."
Cons: "Asian Vegetarian meal not very good. Seems like whichever company they use to buy the food makes a half hearted effort in their selections for the food tray. If you're going to put a couple small pieces of lettuce and a cherry tomato into an already small container and call it salad, why bother? The rest of the meal wasn't pleasing either. The fruit was nearly frozen it was so cold. The entree had a few different things but still a weird combination of veggies."
Pros: "Nice once I got on the plane"
Cons: "Having to wait an extra 7 hrs because of a delay on top of the 3hrs I came early to the airport. Didn't even get an email notifying me that the flight was delayed. Wasted my vacation time by a whole day"

Pros: "As long as I didn't fly on united"
Pros: "Excellent in every way"
Cons: "The crew was very polite, the best that I have ever seen . I noticed this polite behavior in all Japanese service people in Japan too. Very gracious, It is in their culture. The only problem for me in such a long trip it was that the chairs couldn't move back for a more relaxed position, but overall it was very good ."

Great service

Very clean and on point with the timing

Flight was on time. Boarding was relatively fast and the crew very pleasant. The plane was new and clean. Snack was O. K. , fine for a 2hr. Flight. 👍👍

Cons: "Superior customer service"
Cons: "Great crew and flight! Cheers!"
Pros: "Flight was smooth and short"
Cons: "The entertainment system kept resetting over and over throughout the flight. And drinks were served late in a not so comfortable temperature cabin. But everything else was ok"
Pros: "Was boarded promptly"
Pros: "Food selection, service, and variety of entertaining entertainment options."
Cons: "More leg room for economy."
Cons: "B.S. all the Delta Boarding groups. Geez, have you lost all common sense! C'mon... I understand the ill/med conditions passengers. How about 1 kid, then 2 kids then 3 kids, w/ cataracts, bladder probelems, Platinum, Gold, Silver, Paper, Plus 1, Plus 2, Main Cabin 1, 2 and 3."
Pros: "Better than spirit"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very late and boarded too long before leaving the gate."
Cons: "Delayed"
Pros: "Quick boarding, extra space to put things in front of you"
Pros: "Great leg room"
Cons: "I was next to an obese person who literally took half of my seat. That was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "All things connected to the flight were just right"
Cons: "Nothing was an issue."
Cons: "They ran out of blankets, earphones on the flight"
Pros: "We left and arrived early. Smooth flight overall just a great experience"

Cons: "Bathroom was very smelly"
Pros: "Movies"
Pros: "On Time"
Cons: "No opportunity to purchase additional food"
Cons: "Got put on standby despite having purchased my ticket over 1 month in advance"
Pros: "I am liking the new Delta terminal at LAX. The flight crew was nice pleasant and helpful. The pilots kept us informed."
Cons: "The Delta Sky club was small and over crowed. If you go take the first seat spot you can find. It doesn’t get bigger. I have high hopes for the new combined lounge between the terminals. The flight itself felt like an older 737-800 while it had power there were only two and the two others in my row snagged them. I was in Delta Comfort and have to say the extra leg room isn’t a lot."
Pros: "We made it it was short 1 hour 11 min"
Cons: "I had a long lay over it was more then 12 hours"
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Delta staff seemed flat compared to other delta flights I've been on."

Cons: "2 hour delay. Got a free bottle of water."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Good Entertainment"
Cons: "Seats"
Pros: "Plane was clean. Hotel due to missing connection was nice."
Cons: "Flight delays cause cascade of irritable passengers. Flight out of Phoenix delayed due to late departure from previous location. We were told mechanical reasons was the cause of the delay. This caused many passengers to miss their connecting flight in Atlanta. When we arrived after midnight, one gate person was attempting to help 50 people with morning connecting flights and room accommodations. The airline knew 3 hours prior that they would have tired, hungry, frustrated passengers. To then have to wait more than an hour in a line to get a bed and or a meal was too much for most people. There were other smaller examples of how Delta's staff or procedures were not customer centric. I will avoid Delta for travel in the future, and I am getting out of their stock."
Cons: "Our flight was originally scheduled for departure at 7:45 PM. We got an alert stating that the flight was going to be delayed but we were already almost to the airport when I received the first message on my smartphone. We received three additional alerts making our total wait time at the airport 5½ hours before we could approach the gate and board the aircraft. Seating in immediate gate area was not comfortable. Boarding was chaotic at best with very little control and guidance provided by Delta staff. The audio over the PA system was difficult to decipher much of the time. The only other available boarding status information was presented on the screens stationed near the gate and indicated PREMIUM the entire time during our boarding process and was never updated. We literally had to scramble through the crowd to get to the gate desk and get our boarding passes validated so we could board our flight with our group of passengers. Our seating on board the aircraft was thankfully good which is why I rated Comfort as Okay. We were saddled with one more delay after the flight left the gate and taxied briefly down the runway and then sat there for almost an hour. My suggestions to improve customer satisfaction based on my experience would include the following 1. Provide extended alerts for passengers travelling especially if the anticipated delay is known to the airline more than 2 hours before scheduled flight time. 2. Improve seating in the waiting areas near all Delta gates. 3. Re-orient all staff in proper boarding process and utilizing all available resources properly to provide clear and intelligible (not speeding) overhead audio messaging and current boarding status prompts on displays. 4. Maintain or replace audio equipment if necessary to help improve quality of audio messaging in all boarding areas."
Pros: "Friendly but efficient. Allowed me to keep my bag with me without a fight."
Pros: "Very friendly flight attendants and for the most part I could understand the pilot when he spoke."
Cons: "Wi-fi should be free. Put chocolate into the snack options."
Pros: "Was a nice flay , thanks"
Cons: "I like the AirFrance seats more than I like the Delta seats. AirFranxe has better entertainment too."
Cons: "No seat assignment prior to arriving at the gate"
Pros: "Everything else good."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Very good."
Cons: "Snack food not health.Cold and I lost my glasses in the boarding lounge and found the lost and found difficult to fill in as I didn't know area code. It took me a while to get I have not had a reply"
Pros: "I was traveling with my young daughter (3 years old) and wife. The crew was really welcoming and accommodative of us. My little girl got the Delta wings pin (including a second one when she lost the first one), and was able to visit the flight deck. Extra kudos for my daughter being able to see a female pilot! :-)"
Cons: "Made me check a small bag and let others carry on 2 and3 bags very rude"
Pros: "The passenger seated next to me with a sense of humor about our situation."
Cons: "For some reason when I booked my flight, for this leg of it, I had "get seat assignment at gate". Once I got my seat assignment I thought I had a window seat: however, when I boarded the plane, I realized that I was in the very last seat of the plane in the window position, but no window. I was crammed in next to a wall and claustrophobic the whole way as I couldn't see anything, couldn't recline at all because behind me was the bathroom, and the engine roared at times in my ears to where I couldn't hear the passenger next to me when we tried to have conversation as the engine was right outside my "wall". We joked, when we could hear each other, that we must've pissed someone at Delta off the last time we flew them. I have no idea why I had to get my seat assignment at the gate for this particular flight, or why I was put in the 'flying coffin' seat, but it made for a very unpleasant experience. Why even have that seat in the plane? Everyone pays a lot of money to fly these days and deserves better than that seat when doing so. just take those two seats out and give everyone else a little more leg room = much better passenger experience for everyone...my suggestion if Delta really cares about the quality of passenger experience."
Cons: "No entertainment and only pretzel and peanuts available"
Pros: "Flight delayed for four hours, then delayed another hour before we left. Delta won't let you pick your seats, so although we were 3rd in line at the gate, they put my family of four at the rear of the plane. I will never fly Delta again."
Pros: "Arriving and departing flights were at totally opposite ends of airport"
Cons: "My suitcase was damaged(torn through!)"
Pros: "After flying American Delta was an miracle. I didn't have to spend the night in the airport. It was on time. Everyone was nice & helpful. Easy."

Made us go through security again at the gate after going through airport security and TSA to get to the gate. Wouldn’t allow us any water or to go use the bathroom while waiting at the gate unless we wanted to go through the security process again. So hot on the airplane and they wouldn’t adjust the temperature. I was burning up and couldn’t get enough water. Too cramped for that long of a flight. Airplane is designed for shorter distances. Un human conditions

To hot befor the flight departure. And the food is very poor quality, the bread doesn’t test fresh.

Pros: "Staff flight attendant"
Cons: "Pilot wasn’t the greatest. I can tell he wasn’t experienced"
Pros: "Staff at airport and flight crew."
Cons: "Nothing. Great job."
Pros: "Able to have on board entertainment for a long flight on 737 craft."
Cons: "Food was mediocre."
Pros: "Crew were trying but non of them spoke English"
Cons: "I have never had such a terrible experience like this one"
Pros: "Premier class services."
Cons: "entertainment and toilet cleanest."
Pros: "Very un-experienced Air hostess..They seriously need training. Also they need language training in English"
Cons: "Air hostesses can not understand English, and ATTITUDE is bad . Need massive amount of proper training"
Pros: "On time always"
Cons: "Improve que aire conditioner on the aircraft before departure... is very hot Panama!"
Pros: "Crew was great. Wasn't expecting a meal(lunch) and full beverage service included. Having a ramp to board was a big plus when travelers have a problem with steps. Something the Big airlines should do until SXM airport is fully functional. Right now flights enter/exit onto the tarmac."
Cons: "Do to the continuing remodeling of SXM airport, checkin was a nightmare. No signage for the correct line for Copa, so what might have been an exit lane from checkin was also being used and agents didn't do anything to stop this. then they went from 4 agents down to 2!"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "I enjoyed my flight"
Cons: "Major hassle at PCN as security wanted to confiscate Duty Free liquor even all paperwork in order And searched companion s purse 3x"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Food options ran out twice and it tasted terrible. Seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "If you get in line early, there might be overhead bin space."
Cons: "Seats are awful. FAs don't want to speak slowly so you can understand them or English, basically saying they don't care. Every Copa flight I have taken is a late departure."
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "food and entertainment, check-in in Rio de Janeiro was awful."
Pros: "Chairs"
Cons: "I asked for vegetarian meals & didn't get it. I asked for seats not on the wing and got the wings all my flights. Not happy, bad service"
Pros: "The flight attendants where and are amazing.. the service was the best. Highly recommend to fly with “copa”"
Cons: "I don’t think I did not like anything to be honest."
Pros: "Nice plane, comfortable seating, great staff. Route was convenient, direct flight. Customs at Tampa area was very easy to manage. No glitches during the trip."
Cons: "In Panama City, Over one hour in line to check-in to get boarding pass. Nice that food was offered, but it wasn’t tasty. The entertainment was on drop down screens and I couldn’t see the one closest to my seat. And only one option of movies to view. Another passenger had difficulty with the headphones and sound that wouldn’t work"
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "NIL"
Pros: "Convenient times."
Cons: "Service level was pretty amateur—late food, understaffed, had to ask for things repeatedly. Business class seats are very dated."
Pros: "Flight landed 1/2 hour earlier than scheduled."
Cons: "I've flown Copa quite a few times in the past and have always raved about the overall quality of the service. My last trip 2 years ago was with Copa to Washington D.C and it was an absolute delight. This time however, there was a noticeable drop in the quality offered: for reasons unknown, the movie started playing extremely late, and was therefore cut short by landing time. Additionally, the quality of the food was also inferior to what I would have expected for a 3 hour, noon flight: it was roughly equivalent of the breakfast served during the SJO-PTY flight, which is barely one hour long."
Pros: "The flight from Rio to Panama was very good. The only complaint I have is the food, which is too simple and it could taste a little better. All my flights were on time and arrived in time at the destinations. They have an excellent option for entertainment with good movies and documentaries."
Cons: "Lost baggage"
Pros: "COPA offers excellent service! Their newer aircrafts have individualized monitors on each head rest for added control of what one wishes to view. Clean and spacious aircraft. Nice crew and bountiful beverage/ meal service. Fair luggage allowance and flight options will keep us coming! Keep it up!"
Cons: "Panamanian TSA has a second checkpoint at each gate. This means you get the general check we are all used to, but at the gate there's a second patdown and x-ray where liquids purchased inside the terminal are discarded or you have to exit the gate area to drink it! People had to give up their sealed, duty free bags and we had to give up our cans of soda we had just purchased. Fuller disclosure- in Spanish and English- should be given to patrons at stores and BEFORE entering the gate to avoid displeasure. We know drug traffickers are slick, but innocent people don't appreciate the inconvenience. My son's blunt tip, plastic, safety scissors were also taken at this airport because of the thin "blade" affixed to the plastic, but it left the USA in his school pencil case without any issues on our way there."
Pros: "Missed my connections, lost my bags, uncomfortable planes, inconvenient flights"
Cons: "Missed my connections, lost my bags, uncomfortable planes, inconvenient flights"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "No entertainment."
Pros: "Tv's and that there were 2 open seats next to me."
Cons: "Food is atrocious."
Pros: "Went by quick, great staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I bought a return ticket from Panama City to Rio on Kayak and was not notified that a Yellow Fever shot was necessary for re-entry to Panama. Turned back at the air port in Rio I had to spend an extra 13 days in Rio de Janeiro at my expense, three to see doctor and get vacine, plus ren day waiting period."
Cons: "To change ticket I had to pay change fee plus fare difference. Copa said it was not their responsibility to notify passengers of health alerts and Kayak should be responsible. Needless to say I was on the hook for the time and the bill. I have flown Copa with satisfaction a number of times but this is enough to discourage me from ever flying them again and possibly ever using Kayak again."
Pros: "Crew was polite and friendly"
Cons: "Copa placed passangers in scattered seats even if they were together, we had to talk to other passangers to switch spots. The crew was unhelpful most of the time. Boarding was totally disorganized, it reminded me of a persian market trying to go though a single door, all at once. Security bands to form lines were obviously unavailable. The whole experience was like riding an old bus with no technology, and it’s entertainment was along these lines."
Pros: "All it is fine"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Too much complain whit my carry on"
Cons: "Only the spaghetti was edible and the salad only had 2 ingredients. Also would appreciate changing up the entertainment options from leaving my destination to going to it."
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly and on time. The captain did an excellent job of describing our flight course and other detailed information about the flight. It was a very pleasant and comfortable travel experience."
Pros: "efficient and good service"
Pros: "Its was ok"
Cons: "Bad service i asked for a blanket and i was denied for one"
Cons: "Panamá Airport is so disgusting smell bad, the terminal was dirty, trash everywhere on the floor I was there for 2 hrs I didn't see housekeeper cleaning arounf. Unacceptable that don't offer wifi free ( Tampa or Costa Rica international airport) to make our stay more easy. I love to fly with COPA but I hate how COPA manager their airport I think we as a passenger deserves better environmental."
Pros: "The leg from RIO to ,Panama the crew crew not pleasant, the service was horrible, they started serving drinks to passengers from the first row to,the back and since the plane was completely full it took forever and the 2 flight attend that were in the galley, refused to, give me a cup of water I had to beg for it saying please I Need any liquid (since I was felling nayseas and needed to,take my medicaction) sol she gave me (practically through me a cup of a warm apple juioe) not even offered ice cubes, plus etc"
Cons: "The crew, and the plane is very old not fit, for a such,long flight"

Pros: "Excelente communication from the front cabin to passengers"
Cons: "Clean restroom"
Pros: "Lots of space and great entertainment options."
Pros: "left on time and arrived on time choice of meals"
Cons: "uncomfortable seat"
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "This is not the first time flying this itinerary. So , my review counts for many trips. The good: crew, on time, short connection time"
Cons: "Always the worst food. Sometimes, unedible. A bowl of pasta with one tablespoon of tomato sauce. Another choice was tough beef. I mean, really hard to chew beef."
Pros: "The confort and food!."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants that made noise taking her luggage from the bin case"
Pros: "Whereas inflight to Panama City was excellent, the return flight was so/so....the ground crew and flight attendants were friendly and efficient... the flight was on time disembarking speedy on the whole, an easy flight"
Cons: "the food was awful... and the TV screen tiny hanging from above, with horrendous image quality at a breakneck angle....no choices....music was fine, though"
Pros: "Professional crew, an actual meal, smooth flight and soft touchdown!"
Cons: "Could not web check-in from my phone."
Pros: "At least the two seats next to me were vacant, so I could sprawl out... probably because people don't want to use this airline."
Cons: "This flight was delayed in landing due to weather (not their fault) but I had a feeling, given their crappy service in my experience, that my checked bag wouldnt make it to my connecting flight... of course i was right. It wasnt so much that my bag didnt make it as it was their horrendous response that wss the bad part (I wrote another review for that leg of the trip)"
Pros: "Everything was great..."
Cons: "Except the change fee was so high that I would be nervous to fly with them again."
Cons: "Better bathroom access for premium economy"
Cons: "Kept on the tarmac with no information on when we would be leaving. I fell asleep and the flight attendant instead of waking me up rudely moved my chair upright in a startling and rude way. When I asked him to next time tap me on the shoulder or ask me to move he went ahead and began speaking loud."
Pros: "Pilots made up for delayed departure. Boarding quick and efficient"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "More Space between seats would have been nice"
Cons: "Notify us sooner about the 2 hour delay. Had to know there was not a pilot available."
Cons: "Awful, loud credit card sales pitch wine up children and another everyone in cabin for what seemed an eternity. Absolutely disgusting."
Pros: "Yes very pleasurable."
Cons: "There was a maintenance issue on departing plane which delayed us a few minutes and when we arrived to layover airport (note we still arrived before the connecting flight was scheduled to leave), the connecting flight had decided to leave early and was gone. Now stranded with standby and all the flights for the next few days are sold out. Beyond angry!"
Cons: "There’s no headphones aboard for entertainment"
Pros: "Everything on time."
Cons: "It was a short flight so the A/C didn't affect my throat."
Cons: "Delayed due to malfunctioning plane"
Pros: "Beverages and biscotti Variety of entertainment Great Crew!!!!!"
Cons: "Only bevarages and biscotti Free entertainment isnt free..$10 wifi charge AND requires personal viewing device Ridiculously small toilets....and only two for large main cabin"
Pros: "The crew was great. Even though we were delayed by about 40 minutes, they were friendly and courteous."
Cons: "40 minutes maintenance delay."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable American airlines is the worst"
Pros: "departure and arrival time"
Cons: "the passenger next to me smelled horrible"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The attendant at the gate was rude. She asked for me to put my bag in the slot to see if it will fit. It fit, and she told me I still need to check my bag because I squeezed it in there. She told me that I either “had to check my bag or find alternative way home” . After when I was taking to the end of the jetway she wouldn’t let me take it and said she had to do it” the whole situation was handling poorly and I watched her be rude to people prior to me. Also the outlet at the gate didn’t work."
Cons: "Only one of the Tram car lines was running from gate to terminal at TIA"
Cons: "Flight delayed and bot enough overhead space."
Cons: "We were rerouted by JustFly prior to our trip. Instead of Venice - Philadelphia-Tampa at noon, we were moved to Venice - London - Chicago - Tampa. Flight from London - Chicago was delayed 6 hours. Of course missed connection in Chicago. Spent night in Chicago and arrived home 48 hours after leaving for Venice airport."
Cons: "Over 90 minutes delay on arrival time on a less than 2 hours flight"
Pros: "I thought the service was great"
Cons: "I was surprised that there was only beverages served and no pretzels are peanuts like the other airlines"
Pros: "Price"
Cons: "Outdated airplanes"
Cons: "Flight delay, no beverage service"
Pros: "Not turbulence"
Pros: "The setup at Skyharbor airport in Phoenix is a joke. There is no rhyme or reason as to how they do things. There is no organization whatsoever. Nobody knows what they are doing. Agents are rude. They can’t figure out which gate flights are suppose to go out of."
Cons: "I didn’t like a single thing. The fact you pay extra money for a so-called choice seat and then you have to wait til more than half the plane is filled is a joke. It’s all about money w you ppl. Quit being so greedy and focus on customer service."
Cons: "Ugh. By this time I'm worn out and fed up from hassling with Customs. Then they lose my luggage."
Pros: "Timing of flight routes"
Cons: "Sat on a pillow"
Pros: "Bulk head aisle leg room"
Cons: "Narrow seats and aisle. Being pressed against someone and bumped in the aisle for two and a half hours is a long time."
Cons: "Start boarding with the last row, not the 1st row - so people settling into the 1st rows do not hold up the people trying to reach the higher numbered rows."
Pros: "The crew and planes were excellent."
Cons: "When we booked our flights the web site did not show us all the possibilities for return flights. When inn Puerto Maldanado we checked on line and discovered we did not have to have the 18 hour and 19 hour lay overs. We rebooked and were hammered with the $400 charges. We will not book future flights with your organization because of this deceptive practice."
Pros: "Entertainment system and new plane"
Cons: "Landing was a little rough"
Cons: "I was forced to check my carry on luggage. There was no problems on the way up to DC, just on the way back."
Cons: "3 hours stuck on the tarmac before giving up on repairs and switching aircraft"
Cons: "The employees treated me poorly"
Cons: "Last to board with a young child."
Cons: "Extremely old plane"
Pros: "Fantastic"
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Leg room"
Pros: "Leaving the plane was my favorite part. Entertainment was one of the best (American run flight and plane)."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped and did not recline enough to get comfortable. Temperature of the cabin was hot then cold. No sleep again. But the cabin crew looked refreshed in the morning. Guess they had better seats. It should be a law that all airline employees from the CEO on down should only be able to fly in coach. Maybe then the seats will get better."
Cons: "Carry on limitations"
Pros: "With American Airlines in general there is no such thing as customer service anymore .Staff at desk at the airport are rude .Could learn a few things from your Australian counterparts at Qantas airlines"
Cons: "No respect for customers anymore"
Pros: "On time performance; friendly, competent staff."
Pros: "Somewhat disappointing on the snack options..."
Pros: "I honestly can't think of anything that I liked. Oh wait! You have diet Dr Pepper which I think is fantastic."
Cons: "The plane was kind of old and run down. Everyone, the passengers included which I realize you have no control over, just seemed to be in an awful mood and very unhelpful. Same, and about the gate attendants, in that we attempted to get seats together and he didn't care at all what was going on. I haven't flown American for a very long time, and I don't think I want to again for a very long time."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Gate changes were confusing. Staff unprepared and upset with customers. I witnessed a gate agent yelling at customers and slamming phones down."
Pros: "New plane"
Cons: "Crew was ten minutes late"
Pros: "The flight was on timely"
Cons: "The staff was very informative"
Pros: "excellent services from employes"
Cons: "The seats on this plane seemed narrower than any plan I have flown on. I have never had a seat where both my hips were touching side of seat at same time"

The Crew and gate agents were Superb! The 150£ surprised Taxi adventure with traffic and protests from LHR to GTW with zero instruction or assistance from BA corporate, after 4 failed customer service numbers and my phone batt dying, was almost as stressful as the 1 mile sprint to the gate after literally fighting the slothful “bag screeners” for my carryon for 15 minutes after the lovely gate agent run us from counter to the x ray. So we skipped the whole que from front door to X-ray and then sat and got scolded for attempting to have our bag advanced for check. In the end a tough but angelic lady of color grabbed our bag and rushed us thru for our mile sprint. We made it after all and happy to be at Clearwater each.😀

The flight was an hour late departing and when we arrived at Heathrow we had to wait on board for 30mins while stairs were located to disembark.

The check in counter closed early and we missed the flight. The flight was delayed but they closed at the regular time. We were there just didn't rush to the counter because of the delayed flight. We called Kayak - before that flight took off. And was told that we were a no show and we couldn't apply the ticket to another flight. That cost us $1,500. Very poor service. Really disappointed and debating about ever using KAYAK again. John

Pros: "Female Flight attendant was very rude"
Pros: "Super friendly and never skipped the details."
Cons: "Entertaining on board"
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "NA"
Cons: "Flight was very delayed. Business lounge was poor"
Pros: "Yea the crew members were very polite and nice"
Cons: "There was no charging point in the plane in my returning flight so that was a bit disappointing"
Cons: "BA need to stop the silly practice of boarding according to status - it’s inefficent and leaves me with the impression that BA is obsessed with pseudo hierarchy."
Cons: "Was surprised that you have to pay for all drinks. They want 2.50 for a baby can of coke."
Pros: "Boarding was relatively efficient, the food was decent although breakfast was a modest chicken sandwich, and the staff was friendly."
Cons: "Breakfast, a chicken salad sandwich in plastic and a cookie, was not my favorite thing to face in the morning after a long transatlantic flight."
Pros: "Left relatively on time, friendly crew, clean cabin, and good enough"
Cons: "Completely disorganized boarding from front and back of aircraft led to clogged isles as people from the back tried to make it to the front and visa versa."
Pros: "On board service and amenities"
Cons: "Kayak customer service"
Pros: "Direct flight and excellent service from attendants"
Cons: "Seat selection was changed to middle seats without prior notice and the seats are so close together , when the women in front reclined her seat the dinner tray did not fit. An attendant eventually asked her to put her seat upright. Once dinner was over, back to a recline position, far too closer to the seat behind."
Pros: "We liked the Economy Plus amenities lovely service from all staff"
Cons: "Heath row. Was very disorganized"
Pros: "Speedy boarding process, very polite staff, good food."
Cons: "Very small serving of drinks, not a lot of entertainment on offer."
Pros: "Check in staff and Crew are brilliant. Always pleasant, friendly and helpful. Some aircraft are a little ‘tired’ and a few things don’t quite work as they should. For example my wife’s headphone socket was broken, and therefore no in flight entertainment. But we managed. It was reported to the crew and they immediately set about recording it for attention at next maintenance and changed our seats, so no complaints there. A few of the entertainment screens are scratched, and the controls faulty. But still usable with a little perseverance."
Cons: "Seat row spacing too close. There is little point of a reclining seat because using it greatly inconveniences the passenger behind."
Cons: "Delays and overbooked flights"
Pros: "British Airways is flying done right. They are a first class carrier, even when you're flying in coach!"
Cons: "Seat space too cramped"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Crew, ground staff, courtesy, service orientation all hugely lacking."
Pros: "Lucked out with a pretty empty flight. Food was actually good and there was ice cream which was quite a nice perk."
Pros: "The boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Cons: "Seat cushions inadequate; back support insufficient. Food mediocre."
Pros: "Entertainment options were good."
Cons: "Lost my bag. No idea where it was for 48 hours. Staff was ok. Ran out of meal options, took 4 asks to get a glass of wine and by the time I got it, I was done eating."
Cons: "Was one hour and 45 minutes late leaving Atlanta for London."
Pros: "British Airways is what flying used to be. They are on time, polite, have great service, food and entertainment. The blankets, pillows and headphones are finished free of charge as are the meals that I thought were good. The personal entertainment systems include something for everyone. I highly recommend British Airways."
Cons: "Londoners operate at cooler temperatures than us Florida residents and I was freezing in a sweater and blankets on the flight from London to Tampa. The cabin could have been warmed up a bit."
Pros: "crew very accommodating."
Cons: "Bad food, very small space in seats."
Pros: "Seat 7k best of privacy, window and isle access. Backwards facing is fine."
Cons: "No wireless. Seats could be wider."
Pros: "Crew was very efficient and polite."
Cons: "Very early flight for London. Very crowded. Boarding methods are once again slow by design. All the card holders get priority boarding , causing delays in general boarding do to folk standing around while putting stuff away."
Pros: "Was able to get a bulkhead seat. Wheelchair staff were very efficient at LHR and TPA. Wheelchair helpers were very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "The there was not a legroom class (or bulkhead seat)that could be pre-specified. I do not really care about other extras extras for premium economy. It is critical to me that I can physically fit into the space between my seat and the one in front."
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "I didn't know that it's so complicated to reschedule a flight or return money! That was the worst part."
Pros: "Flight was not even half full which made it extremely comfortable because there was an empty seat by me."
Pros: "Pilot was communicative about flight delay."
Cons: "The food service never made it to our row. Not even water was offered on a two hour flight."
Pros: "Many entertainment options, food was tasty."
Cons: "Movie options were not new releases"
Pros: "Larger seats, TV Monitors, headphones and pillow immediately available, meals and snacks and in-between water and tea services, Crew was outstanding. Boarding seemed awkward at the last since families and rest of seats load at one time at the last but still doable. I enjoyed my flight. Thank you."
Pros: "The flight was short and we hit a day when there was free checked luggage, if it fit in the metal box."
Cons: "The French Air Force, or whatever, kept us grounded for 40 minutes because they were practicing their air show for Bastille Day. Really. They were just practicing and air travel came to a standstill."
Cons: "Boarding queue should be clearly marked. Seating needs work. It is ok when person in front of you is not reclined but too close if a petson is the least claustrophobic . I was fortunate that seat next to me was vacant, otherwise I would habe been in panic the entire flight."
Pros: "Crew treated you well, boarding was organised and as a silver club card holder I was rewarded with priority boarding (less queues, less hassle)."
Cons: "Old style entertainment console, small screens, no usb or plug point for charging."
Pros: "I loved the crew - they were very helpful and communicative. The food was also good, and I enjoyed the movies."
Cons: "My seat would not recline, so when the lady in front of me reclined her seat, eating and watching movies became difficult. The crew were very helpful in trying to solve the problem, but the seat was broken so they could do nothing to help me. They offered to move me and my son, but we had settled in and so decided to decline the offer."
Pros: "From London to Seattle we were upgraded from Premium Economy to First Class! Beautiful experience for our travel weary family of 4! Could not have been better - food/ drink/ comfort/ service all excellent! So this is how the other half lives!"
Pros: "The food was very good, and the entertainment selection was good."
Cons: "I'm a small person, and I found the seats too narrow and there was so little leg room."
Pros: "en transit,une personne handicapee n'est pas bien assuree d'avoir sa chaise roulante a la descente d'avion,c'est ce qui s'etait passe a mon epouse. En transit a Londre j'avais du chercher en vain le service d'accueil en salle transit.Ce fut une mauvaise experience."
Pros: "The food was great and the crew were courteous Overall the service was good"
Cons: "Boarding was a bit unorganized for world class flyers"
Pros: "Pleasant and helpful crew;"
Cons: "They had me change my seat so couple could sit together. Then gave my special gluten free meal to the man sitting in my former seat. They never checked and I had to inform crew that I never got my special food. They did get me something to eat finely. I was not very happy. Kathleen M Quinn"
Cons: "Strike in Pisa which BA knew about and not advised to us on check-in. Bags stranded for more than two days."
Cons: "Just getting around in Gatwick airport was really difficult. Lack of signage and people to ask. Very confusing."
Pros: "Left close to on time."
Cons: "Luggage wait in Tampa was much longer than usual."
