Cons: "I was supposed to have wheelchair assistance. None there. Flight was on time. Passenger assistance is AWFUL!!!"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic!"
Pros: "We had a “light” fare which didn’t include checked bags, but airline let us check our carryon bags for free"
Pros: "The crew is always pleasant and friendly. The in-flight entertainment is great and the food is good too."
Cons: "The Lufthansa rep at the Rome airport did not try to accommodate me when I asked to change my flight. My daughter was flying on a later flight and in order to travel together I asked if there was any way one of us could switch. Before even looking she said NO, there is no way. I know that it can be"
Pros: "Seat 16 B was great"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the movie selection was decent. Food was ok. As good as it can be when you pay $2,500 for a flight ticket knowing that they are not really there to offer you a service, they are there to make their own money knowing that as a traveler you really have no options other than an airplane if you want to go across the ocean."
Cons: "Seats become smaller and smaller...and you keep asking about my experience...$2,500 to travel seating in a miniature seat with no leg room is a bit much...and I know no flight company cares about this...we have no choice...either take that or don’t travel, right?"
Pros: "Comfortable seats, pleasant service"
Pros: "Hate today but they do it better thanUS airlines."
Cons: "The lines in Frankfurt were horrible. It’s the airports fault though, not the airlines. We almost missed our connection."

Cons: "One of the female flight attendants got impatient with a few passengers."

Pros: "Ease of boarding, flight arrived ontime"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Food is provided"
Cons: "Delayed 6 hours on the plane"
Cons: "I didn't like going downstairs to the bathroom. I'm sure there is a good reason why we did it. Also, the seats are too close together for a trip of that length of time."
Cons: "Ease and concenience"
Cons: "they called for boarding and all the signs said the flight was boarding and yet we stood there for a good 20 minutes before they actually started boarding the flight, but other than that, flight and crew were great!"
Pros: "Flight was on time both ends. Fed us twice with frequent drink service. Movie choices could have been better, but that is not why we fly. Easy on line check in. In Boston, the smoothest landing we have ever had. Just love Lufthansa. Highly recommend, this is the fourth time long haul with them."
Cons: "Would have liked better movies. Small point."
Pros: "I have the option to have a special meal. (vegan)"
Cons: "I have to ask for my special meal in advance."
Cons: "Seat size and spacing is at an absolute minimum level even for small people."
Pros: "Staff was very attentive and friendly. Great service and staff always had a smile on their faces."
Pros: "No entertailment because of the short flight, but free beer or wine was nice and a sandwich!"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and boarding was easy"

Cons: "Headphones are terrible"
Pros: "Crew and staff were very nice, accomadating. Clean and pleasant flight."
Cons: "Bus to boarding."
Cons: "The process of obtaining our boarding pass in Rome was slow because the first person that was handling seemed not to be familiar with the process. A second person took over and everything went smooth and fast."
Cons: "Flight repeatedly delayed and then cancelled due to United technical issues. Was rebooked on another carrier, but United couldn't get our baggage back to us in time to make that flight thanks to the absolute circus that ensued at the gate. 9:55am flight turns into a night at the airport hotel with vouchers that would only allow us to eat from the horrible buffett (ordering off the hotel menu was not covered). Put on same flight the follow day. Wait for it.... Delayed again (no weather). Would never have booked a flight with United in the first place due to similar issues in the past , but got duped when I booked this Luftansa flight and found out after the fact that it was operated by United. Never again, again."
Pros: "Clean and comfortable aircraft."
Pros: "Generally a smooth flight. My geographically knowledgeable friend pointing out towns, rivers, forests and places we visited in 2012 as we moved across Italy, the Swiss Alps and Germany. Delightful."
Pros: "Seating was good and reasonably comfortable."
Cons: "However the food was 99% sugar in the form of cookies and other over processed food. The entertainment was so disappointing with no back of the chair screen that if I could give it a 0 rating I would."
It was a wonderful experience, I really appreciate the services and team work, thank you 🤗
I ordered a vegan meal months in advance. The meal never came and they tried to give me chicken. I told the attendant and she said nothing she could do, someone must’ve messed up so I had nothing to eat. She was very rude about it and did not apologize or anything, just said “handed them all out already” and walked away. Another attendant eventually came over and I asked her for some help and she was able to provide me with some snacks and she was very kind.
Pros: "Crew on EWR to ARN was so-so. They lock restrooms at the back because they don't people hanging around the kitchen in the back. Also, the one cabin crew does not say Excuse Me when he needs to pass- he just touches you and pushes you aside Also, the one cabin crew"
Pros: "Crew was good, especially from Beijing to Copenhagen"
Pros: "The seat was not as cramped as the Greenland Airways flight preceeding this."
Cons: "Not having additional fees for baggage. Please disclose that as part of the ticketing."
Cons: "Flew SAS Plus. Extra seat width and leg room made all the difference versus SAS Go. Money well spent."
Pros: "The flight went by fast."
Cons: "They should have provided some goodies to eat. Due to people that needed something to eat. For example, my mother being diabetic and I was telling them to please provide something. Event then, nothing was done :( ."
Pros: "Nice interiors, relatively new airplanes, and very professional staff"
Cons: "Limited food ans beverage selection, and alcohol is served with an additional cost"
Cons: "Really rude flight attendant even after we boarded and left late. She was rude to people sitting in the exit seats, rudely demanding attention while she rushed through the safety guidelines. She then very rudely told me I had to pay for what I was trying to order, even though I was reading it off the menu? She acted as if I was stupid because I don’t speak swedish, but she did not speak the language of our destination, and it was a connecting flight."
Cons: "Food was pretty atrocious. Before having this flight I tried many times to book a special meal but their website is nearly impossible to use. So on the flight I was given two options of fish or mexican beef. Mexican beef meant slow cooked beef in a salty brown sauce with 2 kidney beans. Yes 2 kidney beans. With potatoes carrots and broccoli. Entertainment was pretty lacking. Not a lot of options. Also it was freezing the entire flight."
Cons: "The flight was over 2 hours late leaving Copenhagen, and then we sat at the gate while they unloaded bags to find the luggage of some passengers who decided not to be on that flight. Then it was total chaos at O'Hare. Very few SAS ticket agents who were not prepared to deal with the many passengers who had missed connections. We spent the night on hard chairs in the airport when we could have been re-booked on a flight out that night if they had been at all organized and efficient."
Pros: "Food was excellent!"
Pros: "Timing is good"
Cons: "To craody"
Cons: "When I booked the flight, it did not say that I was not allowed to check any bags. My wife and I had one each, and it costed us €140 total to bring the luggage. If I had known there was a slightly more expensive ticket that would have allowed us to check a luggage each, I would of course have chosen that. Very poor information provided."
Pros: "Fair leg space, kind stewards."
Cons: "It would be nice if they could offer some snacks or something to drink. Seems to be higher quality than low costs, so they could afford to offer that."
Cons: "Bad food Bad service Dirty plane Bad choice of movie collection You only get one glas of non alcoholic drink with your main meal. If you want more you have to pay ! Thats not a good service for a long trip fligt: washington-copenhagen and back. All other Airlines i have been with gives you a choice to choose between 2 different meals, buT SAS they decide for you ! And i have never seen any airline serve pork/ ham because of different believes people have, but SAS service you pork on an international 8 hours flight ! This is first time and last time I’m gonna fly with SAS. I always fly with KLM , perfect in everything and anyway. NO MORE SAS FOR ME !"
Pros: "Efficient processing of passengers onto aircraft."
Pros: "Great flight. Wonderful staff. No turbulence!"
Pros: "The airline staff were so positive and friendly. Really made the long trip easier."
Pros: "Everything about the flight was fine. Boarding, flying and retrieving luggage were all standard and went smoothly."
Cons: "I was upset that neither Kayak nor SAS provided any information about our ticket being a basic, basic ticket, by which I mean, did not include any checked luggage allowance in the price of the flight. I ended up paying 140 additional Euros for two bags. It appears that SAS's pricing is gaming the system when searching for flights or that Kayak is not being up-front about the type of fare they are advertising."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice. Seemed to have a nice amount of leg room."
Cons: "I didn't like that they tried to sell stuff on the plane."
Pros: "Very helpful crew. Goes out of the way to be helpful certainly in the transatlantic part of the flights. Entertainment is excellent."
Cons: "Food taste is terrible. They did accommodate us in getting vegetarian diet. However, online means to do this was impossible. Choices were not provided when we tried to do seat selection. In fact the web site gave wrong information that there are no meals offered even for the selection of the transatlantic flights. Toll free number calls were put on hold over an hour without success. Eventually chat worked. In the flight segment within Europe they do not even offer water for free. Charging 3 Euros for a small can of water/soda is a rip off."
Pros: "We were eventually rebooked in the class we paid for."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled with no notice. We were rebooked in economy class when we paid over $5,000 for business class tickets, and told we would "probably" receive a refund for the difference. after much prodding, asking and begging, we were finally rebooked in a flight on Lufthansa the same night. That airline was upset, though, because SAS did not call them or notify them that we had been switched to their airline."
Pros: "Boarding should be done like this on all airlines"
Cons: "No food or entertainment on the short flight ght"
Pros: "Good flight attendants and a plus for the early arrival."
Cons: "The lack of lounge access at the airport in Rome (Fiumicino). Not receiving any food/snacks on a three hour flight is quite poor."
Pros: "The boarding was more organized than our other flights with this airline. Cabin crew was friendly."
Cons: "The food was not so good. It looked like they were really trying to cut corners with very small portions."
Cons: "This is our third delay with this airline on this trip and all they will do is send you to their service center which in Copenhagen is located so far from the gates it's a joke. Once again they are doing their best to discourage any interaction with their customers."
Pros: "It was a clean plane and entertainment was good."
Cons: "Crew wasn't nice unless you were Scandinavian. I asked questions about going into Stockholm for our long layover. How easy it was, etc. they were less than helpful. My daughter and I figured it out ourselves. Won't fly them on next trip. Air France or BA r better"
Pros: "Clean plane, decent food"
Pros: "Overall excellent"
Pros: "The plane was full and coming out of a very busy airport but the crew managed to make a good and stress-free atmosphere"
Cons: "Discovered that I would have to pay 70 euro for my bag check-in. Not fun at all."

Cons: "The slight delay due to something not being able to lock."
Pros: "The flight attendants were good at checking on the needs of the passengers"
Cons: "No food, no entertainment. Bring a book."

Pros: "On time and smooth travel."
Cons: "No choice in dinner items."
Pros: "Flight was short."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "The automated kiosks made it ridiculously easy. Flying out of LAX can be a pain, but that went by so smoothly. I'm cheap and have become accustomed to Spirit airlines. So when I received free (decent) meals a complimentary bottle of water and a plethora of inflight entertainment."
Pros: "We were in coach and it was comfortable and the food was good. The crew was helpful and pleasant. Entertainment options were great."
Cons: "I have never been on a trans-Atlantic flight before that did not include wine and liquor! Surprising."
Pros: "Everything was great, food, blanket & pillow, movies, friendly service."
Cons: "The 3 hour delay for landing. Had a 2 hour drive home from the airport, hard to stay awake. So tired for work the next morning."
Pros: "There was sufficient entertainment and food"
Cons: "Shamelessly disorganized at all departures, the staff was rude, very rude on land and in flight. I will not fly SAS again. I rather pay more."
Cons: "I missed my flight due to car troubles and has been very difficult in trying to get a refund for my flight. SAS was very unhelpful at the airport I had to go to Delta and purchase and entirely new flight!"
Cons: "The food options need improvements. The portion and items are not tasty or plentiful."
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Was put on standby because all passengers could not wait in gate area after checkin. Stood in public hallway for nearly an hour - no seating in area where told to stand."
Cons: "That I didn't make it to Chicago the day I planned. My first leg had computer issues in Rome which pushed the flight back 4 hours which then made me miss my connecting flight. Had to stay a night in Copenhagen and fly out at 1540 the next day."
Pros: "Efficiency, confidence, promptness"
Pros: "Good, comfortable plane and friendly crew."
Cons: "The food was mediocre."
The entertainment was nonexistent, no food, not very comfortable
A really excellent and comfortable experience. No wifi in my section of business class though - would have made it perfect.
Nice,elegant,smooth,team had a pride with their work. My Favorite Airline.
Pros: "Easy boarding, entertainment"
Cons: "Crew was not very friendly on bot departure and return flights. Will make me reconsider Air France in the future."
Pros: "I like the crew and their service, the food was amazing speacially the vanilla cheese cake desert was on point, loved it. I loved the “my flight “interaction on the screen and the different view of the plane, cockpit view, left, right etc.. amazing feature."
Cons: "The seat could have been much better as far as reclining and space. Overall I loved the flight."
Cons: "I was catching a flight in Paris to Aberdeen after arriving from Malaga. The time between flights was not enough 55 mins as the gate closed 20 mins before departure and it takes at least 15 minutes from arrival to taxi to the terminal and then get off the plane. I had to change from terminal F to E which was well sign posted but I only made it with 4 minutes to spare"
Pros: "Crew attentive. The delay was due to airport conditions in FCO, cannot be blamed on Air France."
Cons: "Food. For a 2-hour plus flight, from 11am to 1:30pm, we got 20gr pretzel sticks. This is ridiculous. Don't pretend you are not low-cost! Formerly, before the Joon failed (thank God) venture, Air France had real sandwiches around that time of the day on that line."
Cons: "The food is usually very good, this time it was poor to disappointing- dark meat chicken.., tasteless & unhealthy....mushy fruit dessert choices"
Pros: "Amazing crew and on time flight"
Pros: "Good crew, as usual with Air France."
Cons: "Old plane with very lousy seats for a super expensive business class. Super slow check in and overall process till boarding because of lack of ground staff compared to passenger volumes"
Pros: "Arrived on time."
Cons: "Overhead luggage storage jammed with luggage belonging to someone who was sitting far behind my seat."
Cons: "If you have to change planes and Paris is your middle person. Leave at least 2-3 in between the two flights otherwise you might not make it."
Pros: "Good food and crew"
Cons: "Plane was old and seats were super tiny. Even an average guy would be uncomfortable in it. Can’t sit in one spot for longer than 15 min without getting sore."
Cons: "Booked with my partner. Ended up sitting apart. Not good"
Cons: "Not really an Air France flight, AF not interested in taking care of their frequent fliers."
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "Flight was very crowded. Flight crew kept bumping into my seat and never apologized"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and attentive but hard to understand"
Cons: "Airport experience was inefficient. Long unattractive walk, boarding was tedious: the automatic check-in was not helpful and required so many more staff. Random security check was redundant and chaotic."
Pros: "Crew members"
Cons: "Up to 1 hour late and they leaved my baggage in Paris"
Cons: "they lost our luggage very inconvenient"
Cons: "Departure delayed, reschedules and then cancelled without any direct notification to us with 2 first class tickets !! If we didn’t have Kayak we would be sitting in the airport !,,"
Cons: "I ordered Asian Vegetarian Meal. But they served me only pasta."
Pros: "Food and wine was very good. Music selection was excellent."
Cons: "Not enough leg room."

Cons: "Nothing to like"
Pros: "The staff was very nice and friendly"
Cons: "One hour delay without any information on embarking and another hour in the plane before departure"
Cons: "I am not sure why this happened, but our daughter, travelling away from home for the first time, was targeted at every step of her journey. From the terminal in DCA to Cincinnati, to CDG. Delta/Air France clearly singled her out. i am outraged! I have traveled many, many times and have sent hundreds of students on nearly the same trip -- and none have had as rough a time as she had. They will be hearing from me."
Cons: "Security services at Manchester airport...too long and not friendly at all"
Cons: "1/ the transfer crew needed 50 mn to enter my son’s visa number in her computer and she almost let us miss our flight 2/ we were separated (party of 3, my son being 5 YEARS OLD) - how can they allow a boarding and expecting my 5 year old to do a 10 hours flight BY HIMSELF???? 3/ no kids menus, even if I had ordered it before 4/ food in general was very mediocre 5/ crew was unprofessional and they acted bored"
Pros: "Food and service was good and price was acceptable"

Pros: "The crew, the service, the food and beverages"
Cons: "The 3 hours delay"
Pros: "Staff was nice"

Pros: "Punctual, great food in Premium Economy, friendly crew."
Cons: "Took over 75 minutes (after arrival) for baggage to arrive on the carousel. Boarding area did not have well-defined lanes for different groups."
Cons: "very old planes we waited 1 hour to drop our bags as their belt had an issue we had to pay extra 70 pounds to reserve a baby cot on the plane"
Cons: "There were not noodle soup ready this time."
Cons: "There are always delays. Today it was that internet was down."

Cons: "Paying for carry on due to weight limit. First time this ever happened!"
Pros: "1) USB charger and electric outlet 2) Availability of 2-across economy seats (for a price) 3) Vegetarian dinner option available and not too bad 4) Flight arrived on-time"
Cons: "1) No on-board wifi 2) Not much seating room - very thin 3) 45 minutes late taking off"
Pros: "The time of the flight was great as well as the arrival time and subsequent connections to Paris. Enjoyed the rather full line of in flight beverages!"
Cons: "Leaving late seemingly without reason from Paris - chaotic boarding line in Paris with difficult to hear PA. Seats were ok'ish but than again, it's a 45 minute flight. The sandwich was gross and I'm somewhat known as a person who eats everything!"
Cons: "Food was not good."
Pros: "A short flight but attendants served us a snack and water with a smile."
Cons: "No business class"
Pros: "The crew was very comfortable speaking two languages and friendly. They also had air conditioning! This was great because it was strangely hot in Paris and we were sweating profusely. And our last air france experience we were so hot and it was aweful. Even though it was like an hour and a half flight they still served us sandwiches ,really good."
Pros: "quick flight 10 min ahead schedule"
There were massive flight delays and no communication from staff. Then without notifying us, they changed the aircraft to a non-Aer Lingus flight with no seat entertainment for a 7 hour cross Atlantic day time flight and the aircraft and flight crew were from some budget charter airline. The airline was old and did not seem safe and the food and service was horrible. My husband and I both suffered from sciatica pain because of the uncomfortable seats. Aer Lingus did not communicate these changes or offer to put passengers on a different flight. I will never fly them again.
Delayed by over 2 hours and no food on board
Pros: "Comfortable seats!"
Cons: "Dublin was difficult off boarding, had to take a bus and multiple multiple steps and escalators. Difficult for people trying to connect in under 90 minutes"
Cons: "The check in in the web site was not working the previous day. The check in at the airport in rome was hoorible... 1 hour and 20 minutes on line to be able to check in. Only two clercks workig in a very croded space ."
Cons: "The flight attendants were just awesome. First time flying with Aer Lingus and I must say they are my favorite airline henceforth"
Pros: "Crew awesome"
Cons: "No all was great"
Cons: "The flight from Rome to Dublin was 1 hr. Delayed (aer lingus also)therefore we missed our connecting flight to Los Angeles we missed our flight."
Pros: "Crews were rude without caring, it was a significantly delayed flight so that is just terrible experience"
Cons: "Please provide good service, we don't pay to get bad service"
Pros: "The entertainment was great and the crew, for the most part, was pleasant."
Cons: "Leaving on time and the consideration of connection flights and how it inconveniences your customers when this happens."
Pros: "U.S. Customs at the Dublin airport is helpful so when you land in the US after a long flight you can get home quicker."
Cons: "Nothing. All was great."
Pros: "Crew, plane was very comfortable, meals good and generous, luggage easy, on time. Overall, outstanding"
Cons: "I talk to member of the Kayak to change the spelling on my middle name. It was never done and i was charged 500 dollars through United to fix it."
Pros: "Crew and flight were polite, kind and professional."
Cons: "Slightly delayed flight."
Cons: "The check in was horrible. You could not check in online for this flight. This was an issue with a lot of people. The check in line I got there 2 hours before my flight and waited an hour in line just to get to the counter. The line was still long after I had gotten to the counter. It should not take that long for a line to move especially if you get there 2 hours beforehand. The flight You had to pay for a snacks, water and sodas. The flight was 2 hours we can’t get a water for free?"
Pros: "The flight attendants on the plane were friendly an d helpful."
Cons: "Boarding was disorganized. There was no reason or logic as to how people board the plane. People sitting at the back of the plane boarded with people sitting at the front of the plane. No in flight entertainment. Seating was tight. When we landed in Dublin we were ushered onto a bus to our connecting flight. I wish they had mentioned that would happen."
Cons: "Aer Lingus didn’t have a plane to fly us Dublin you boston so they leased one from a company. Someone from AL walked around gate area handing out a letter with the information. No announcements made that flight was going to be late. Everyone was lined up to board, no que so it was a mess. 49 min of standing there. No announcement plane was going to be late etc. Let us board but stood in jetway for awhile. Old plane. Mediocre service. no entertainment."
Cons: "US pre-entry then told to wait in line until pre-entry area closed. Moved up to general boarding area. Reason for delay kept changing with no ETD announced until 20 min before takeoff. Food voucher was nice"
Cons: "Actuality an aer lingus flight, a secret code share. Flight overbooked by 35 people. 2 hours to find out I was bumped. Another two hours of waiting while one clerk worked each of the 35 people to rebook. Disaster. Tears. People delayed two full days with no hotel / food /etc. I'll never book british airways or through kayak again. Awful."
Pros: "Crew was nice, seats were big and comfy"
Cons: "I didn't like that we have to pay for every little thing to eat or drink... Even water. I suggest you bring your own snacks"
Pros: "On time and friendly"
Pros: "The staff was all very professional and the flights themselves were all really quite nice."
Cons: "In short, I was surprised to find myself on Aer Lingus as every travel doc and app had me on British Airways. Apps can’t handle international check in or multiple flights. There’s no point having an app or a website option of checking in if you can’t accommodate this service."
Cons: "Only water was free on inter EU FLIGHT and AL made it,inconvenient"
Cons: "Worst flight experience I've ever had and I'm 70+ years old. In Dublin we were diverted from JFK to Hartford due to "mechanical problems" and told we'd be met at the gate and provided ground transportation to JFK. Approximately 30 others going to either JFK or Boston were told the same thing and joined us on a half empty flight to Hartford. When we landed there was no representative at the gate, no ground transportation provided, and no effort to help us. A little investigation on cell phones revealed both the Boston and JFK flights left on time (and I'm guessing full). Needless to say the customers were quite upset. Some even raised their voices which caused the kid representatives of Aer Lingus to call the state troopers (really). When the troopers did nothing the Aer Lingus reps locked themselves in their office rather than deal with their customers. After 2 hours of waiting for the promised ground transportation we gave up, rented a car, and drove ourselves to our destination at our own expense. We were never provided even a free drink. Horrible. Lies upon lies upon lies. I'll never consider flying with them again"
Pros: "The crew was lovely"
Cons: "The space given was considerably smaller than other transatlantic flights and there were also no alcoholic beverages included when other airlines do."
Pros: "We got from Rome to Dublin"
Cons: "No food or drink included in ticket. Charges for all food and beverages including coffee."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Friendly and communicative pilot."
Cons: "Everything was pay as you go. Luckily we brought our own water and sandwich on board."
Cons: "Cannot believe they charge for a Cup of tea! we took a 3+hour flight from Rome to Dublin with not even a complimentary beverage nor a small bag of pretzels. There was also no in flight entertainment. Our flight from Dublin back to Boston was a bit better, but not much. The boarding process took much too long with only one gate agent checking in people. I will say he did turn people away who were not in the rows being called in front of us, but not the woman who cut the line behind us who was 13 rows behind us."
Pros: "Staff was first rate-very professional"
Cons: "poor selection of entertainment, selection out of date and not current movies, over-all appearance of plane was shabby"
Pros: "On time departure and early arrival."
Cons: "System wouldn't allow me to check in online but my wife, who was on the same booking, had no problems. Also, did not appreciate being charged for a cup of tea and a biscuit. It was only four euros fifty but still, seems like that ought to be included in the price of the ticket."
Cons: "I can't actually make a comment on the food since u have to pay for it and I didn't want to. Nothing appealed enough to pay for it. Entertainment wise, there was no entertainment so I have it one star"
Pros: "We left on time."
Cons: "Our stewardess skipped about 3 rows of people during beverage service. A gentleman turned on the service light but unfortunately no one ever came back to provide beverages or answer his call. It was a three hour plane ride and had no turbulence. Not really sure what the problem was."
Cons: "The line for checking in was very long and the workers were very slow and not too friendly. The boarding was carried out in a first come first serve way. People started a line and instead of calling passengers by number groups, those in charge did nothing! So, my husband and I waited and noticed that people were boarding as is."
Pros: "Flight attendants seemed bothered by the passengers.. I had to ask 3 times for a blanket. NO leg room. Paying for beverages on Rome-Dublin flight not good."
Cons: "Smooth takeoffs snd landings. good selection of movies. Liked the irish ones especially."
Cons: "Ability to choose seats ahead of time was not streamlined."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "The plane was dirty and old, the food horrible, cramped seats, dirty and non functioning bathrooms, stressed out and inattentive staff, poor coordination of seating families together (I was told my seat was given to a woman so she could sit with her adult daughter...I wasn't asked, just told), the flight was 1.5 hour delayed, my bag was lost because the incompetent staff member in Italy didn't give me a bording pass for the Dublin to LA flight (I'm still waiting over 24 hours later to find out what's happened to my luggage). Overall, this flight was a nightmare and a huge let down after flying to Rome on British Airways. I can't say enough about how wonderful that flight was..Aer Lingus was a big disappointment and a poor substitute for BA. Very unsatisfied customer!"
Pros: "It got you from point A to point B safely."
Cons: "The flight within Europe had no food or entertainment options. I would have expected a bit more, if even just a bottle of water and a snack."
Cons: "The seats are extremely small and narrow. God forbid you need to get up mid flight."
Pros: "I was confronted by a horrible line to get through border control. I showed a local ground crew person of no clear responsibility, and who had a limp, and she saw my ticket was w Alitalia and so ushered me to a special "short transfer" line. All worked out."
Cons: "The check in area was confusing and uncomfortable. My line abruptly shut down. It was anxiety-creating to not have confidence that I would make my flight, even after waiting for an hour with very few (10-12) parties in front of me. Also, actual boarding was a third-world nightmare. Simple "zone" process boarding could radically improve the boarding time and the experience for custommers, among other things. Rome personnel seemed to not have had any training in customer service or even visited a different (better functioning) facility, just to get a sense of what could be possible. I am sure the processes could be easily improved, as best practices are executed elsewhere."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "The entire check in and paying for baggage took 1 hour and 24 minutes in Rome."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive, good."
Cons: "The air conditioning was so cold I had to wear multiple shirts and a coat to keep warm."
Cons: "Lunch was extra even though it was noon."
Pros: "Aircraft was clean, new, crew was courteous, in flight services were certainly satisfactory"
Cons: "Two major problems, when we went to check in, we stood in line and were very rudely told by some German British Airways attendent that we couldn't check in with them and that we needed to go to Aer Lingus, this even though our reservations were through British Airways. Second, despite my efforts over a few months to make seat reservations, my daughter and i were separated. Aer Lingus reps in rome fixed that and I was very, very grateful for that, but when we got to the Dublin/Boston leg of our flight, they couldn't or wouldn 't fix the seating issue. On board the plane though, the flight attendents arranged for my daughter and I to sit together. Really upset me that I didn't know until the very last minute, on the plane, whether I was going to be able to sit next to my child."
Pros: "Flight crew was very friendly. Seats were comfortable. Boarding went smoothly. You have to pay for food and drinks, but that doesn't bother me. It clearly mentioned this when booking. I would rather pay less for the flight and purchase my food at the airport or before arriving at the airport."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Cons: "British airways canceled our flight, gave no warning, no alternative ticket, flight, or any option in general. We had to book an entirely new flight and did not make it to Dublin and had a completely horrible two days of travel just to get back home."
Pros: "Food is very good . take off and landing Is excellent"
Cons: "Crew attitude was not comforting for the delays!!"
Pros: "Movie options were awesome on such a long flight!"
Cons: "Not sure about the food, you have to pay extra it's free on Delta No tv Friendliest crew!"
Pros: "I arrived at the check in gate at 10 am. There was noone at the check in gate. Finally am alitalia employee helped me but it was too late for the flight. I missed my flight."
Pros: "The Aer Lingus crew on board were awesome. Very helpful in helping me to sort out my seat and getting me comfortable. (Hadnt slept the night before)."
Cons: "Al Italia, working for Aer Lingus, put me in the very last row on both flights despite checking in three hrs before an inter-europe flight. This was my eighth Aer Lingus flight in six months. Should be better customer service from your partners."
Pros: "typical BA flight - good entertainment and movie selection."
Cons: "Seats were a bit to narrow not enough shoulder room."
Cons: "more room, better boarding procedure, on time take off"
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "Plan was in poor condition and needs updated and cleaned"
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Pros: "Service/entertainment on the plane was great."
Cons: "We were unable to check in the night before due to website issues and made it so we didn't have seats assigned until everyone else was boarded onto the plane and because of that I couldn't sit next to my girlfriend."
Pros: "Some crew were friendly."
Cons: "Your seats and leg room are terrible...but you already know that. I am not at all overweight but I am tall and I dread 9 hours in your planes. Fortunately I was able to move to an exit row (without paying over $100 that your company wanted to charge me)."
Pros: "Lots of food and drink on plane."
Cons: "Philadelphia airport is horrible, rude staff, they lost our luggage and many other international flight luggage. Absolutely unacceptable."
Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "They moved us to 6 different gates and took us off a plane due to computer problems."
Pros: "Crew is helpful, seats comfortable, flight and baggage on time. Food was good for the airline."
Cons: "International connection experience is awful. I understand that AmericanAirlines is not responsible but no help or explanation was provided either."
Pros: "Couple of flight attendants were really nice!"
Cons: "Most of flight attendants were rude. No personal touch at all. Felt like they wanna rush and be done with flight asap. Entertainment selection is really poor for 9 hours flight. Expect more new movies and American tv shows. Concerts up to the date would be nice."
Pros: "Appreciated the friendliness of the flight crew, compared to two other international flights I have taken in the past year and a half on other airlines."
Cons: "Cramped seating, as I suppose is the norm on most airlines nowadays. But feels torturous on a long flight. Also, had to pay extra to choose seats. I think that’s outrageous."
Pros: "Boarding was on time. Food was acceptable for an airline. Crew was friendly. The Boeing 787 was well equipped."
Cons: "Departure was about one hour late."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was great. Overall, a very smooth experience."
Cons: "Really only one complaint - the armrest between my seat and my toddler’s seat did not raise up. This meant he could not lay his head on my lap to sleep. Other armrests has this capability. Not sure why they would not all be able to do this."
Pros: "Crew was okay."
Cons: "It was uncomfortable from arriving at FCO for check in to landing at DFW."
Pros: "It was a quick flight! The crew was nice & the landing went smothly!"
Cons: "It was a full plane!"
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The tv at key seat did not work at all initially. Crew tried to re- boot it but it still didn’t work properly Flight attendant in our area was brusque and rude. And none of the others said a word to us"
Pros: "When I saw that our BA flight would be operated by AA, I was concerned, given previous poor experiences with American airlines. However, in this case, AA was pretty good, especially the check-in staff at Rome Airport who were excellent. The check-in, boarding and de-boarding processes all went well. Plane was relatively modern, with USB charging ports for phones. Movie selection was good, though the TV selection could be expanded. The food was ok. Seating not bad. All of our luggage, including a child's carseat, was delivered on time and intact. Pleasantly surprised."
Pros: "Flight operations such as boarding and flight timing was good"
Cons: "The American airline flight attendants were not customer focused and did not care one bit about service quality Not courteous Unfriendly and did not care about service at all"
Pros: "Food and service on flight was wonderful."
Cons: "Flight was 1 1/2 hrs late. Staff in customs were completely rude & had no regard for those of us trying to make connections. Had to spend the night in Philadelphia & placed on PACKED flights thru Chicago, causing even more extended delays home."
Cons: "The touch screen for the video monitors need to be replaced. It was very difficult to select a movie."
Pros: "Leg room. Crew. Nice airplane. Even captain greeting passengers."
Cons: "Need to serve more water"
Pros: "This was a horrendous experience."
Cons: "I've had flights canceled before, but clearly American Airlines/ JFK is not equipped to manage. American Airlines online hung up on me after 24 minutes of being on hold. I waited in line for 2 hours to get on another flight home and the attendant first suggested to fly me to Charlotte then Cleveland where I would arrive a day late after I'd been traveling with my elderly parents for 24 hours. Additionally, once we changed flights and had to go to Newark, it took an hour to print (yes, print) our new itineraries for United and then when the cab should have arrived immediately, we waited 45 minutes. I was displeased."
Pros: "Food service was good."
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "The airplane was very old and I couldn't hear or see the "entertainment"."
Pros: "I wish I had caught his name, but our flight attendant was extremely kind and provided great service. Even came through the cabin prior to landing to thank everyone."
Pros: "Crew fantastic , food good"
Cons: "Limited seat space"
Pros: "We left and arrived on time. The flight was smooth. It was nice that they announced to pilot's retirement after our trip."
Cons: "Of the two bathrooms in my area, one was out of order. The other ran out of toilet paper. The plane seemed old and tired, and the movies didn't work. I was surprised that there were no personal entertainment screens. The BA flight legs on my trip were quite superior in all ways."
Cons: "I was not sent an email 24 hours prior to my flight to check in."
Pros: "The flight was calm and clean. Not much turbulence. The flight staff was polite and there was plenty of room."
Cons: "The food was horrible and the seats were a little uncomfortable but everything else was pretty good"
Pros: "Friendly and accommodating attendants"
Cons: "I'm 6'3" and the seats were extremely uncomfortable for a 10 hour flight. No vegan options"
Pros: "They were offering free checked carry-on luggage at the gate so took advantage of that which got my wife and I pre-boarding. Which was a good thing because the overhead bins were awful on this dinosaur plane."
Cons: "I thought we were getting a history tour upon boarding as one of the first airplanes ever constructed or something. There should never be an airplane that doesn't have personal entertainment on board for an 11+ hour flight. The main cabin had two monitors up front on each side and one in the middle section. We paid for "premium" seats, no charging options. The overhead storage could barely hold the smallest of carry-on luggage. The food was mediocre at best. We were pretty close to the front but every time the beverage cart made it to us the wine was already empty from the previous passengers. Overall pretty miserable flight"
Pros: "People were ok and felt bad for all that went wrong This leg was operated by American Airlines and they are horrible compared to our experiences on British airways."
Cons: "small leg room - less on American that operated the flight then British. food was just ok and the entertainment system was broken When flying British try to make sure its not operated by American Airlines"
Pros: "Stewards were patient and attentive."
Pros: "Crew was excellent good and frequent food, snack, and beverage service great entertainment choices"
Pros: "One of the crew members, Walt, was amazing."
Cons: "Everything else was a NIGHTMARE. We bought our tickets in Nov. I paid for an upgrade and assigned seats in FEBRUARY. We flew May 13. Not only did they RESELL and REASSIGN our seats to someone else -- we could not get a refund for the upgrade we paid for. To add insult to injury, the only seats they could give us were in the back of the plane next to the toilet. Having heard so many similar nightmare stories about American Air I can say I will never ever fly American Air again. We now have to spend our firrst few days home from vacation disputing that charge, writing letters and making calls to get that damn refund. I will be sharing my discontent far and wide. Whoever at corporate thinks it's best practice to sell and sell and sell seats and live with the aggravation of the customers has an upside down notion of how to run a successful business. NIGHTMARE."
Pros: "No problems-good flight."
Pros: "10 hour flight with entertainment system in main cabin that had no sound. Made the flight feel a lot longer."
Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and got lots to eat. Flight was pretty much on time."
Pros: "Staff was nice."
Cons: "Again boarding and unboarding was very slow."
Cons: "Was not able to check in online in advance. AA wouldn't recognize the booking # that was emailed to me. Sat on the plane for nearly 3 hours while a mechanical issue was looked at; lateness of the flight meant we missed our connection. When we got to the table for people who would miss connections to get our boarding pass for a rescheduled flight, there wasn't one for us. We got there, but this wasn't really a great experience."
Pros: "Plane didn't crash!"
Cons: "Never on time leaving/getting there, gates unavailable on landing, 40 minute wait for luggage, plane not working, lost important meeting in Rome, placed me in a dump hotel on worse area of Phili, surprised I got out of there alive.... I can write a book!"
Pros: "great service from flight attendance"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "The staff was rude. I witnessed a crew member yelling at a a pregnant lady for trying to use the first class restroom when the other restroom was blocked off because there was a cart in the way. I also had a crew member yell because I put a water bottle in her trash bag. She literally yelled "I'm standing here," which I am still not sure what she meant by that. I was definitely taken back by how rude the staff was. I have never had an experience like that with United or Virgin,"
Pros: "cabin crew was nice and friendly. Very smooth and experienced pilot, nice take off and landings both ways."
Cons: "This was supposed to be an Iberia flight, but with code share nothing is as it seems. (Had to cancel previous flight on Scandinavian air as that turned into some Turkish Charter). These old birds were 30 years old, out of Arizona desert storage...former TWA, so no entertainment or power or anything. And, AA re-confirmation showed flight and ticket canceled! Said Iberia flight, Iberia said AA flight...yikes! Serious glitches and lost data...locator number erased! You see why I tried to take a foreign carrier."
Pros: "Flight attendants were really nice and attentive."
Cons: "The plane was old and outdated. You could see where screws were loose. Very disconcerting. The food was awful. Headphones going to Rome were free, they were charging $5 from Rome to New York? Wow. British Airways baggage policies are different from American. Felt like a rip off."
Pros: "Fares were great"
Cons: "No update for upcoming travel arrangements"
