This flight made me a believer of red-eyes! What an amazing, beautiful view of the night sky and stars from the air! And I got to see some night thunderstorms from afar, which were really cool, and a beautiful, practically-orbital sunrise. Amazing!

Negotiate better gate locations- Gate 20 in San Diego felt like a 3 mile walk

The delay of 3 hours was horrible. An 8 mph tail wind delayed our flight 3 hours. If the ability of the plane is so close to the min performance of the plane either choose different equipment or don’t book the land so full.

1st flight ever on Alaska Air! One of the best flights I’ve ever had. On time, clean, great crew and baggage super fast!!

Overall travel was great, there really isn't anything to complain about

No gluten free snacks available.

Crappy first class

A delay because new paperwork had to be filed because they turned off the music.

You have to offer food.

Don’t book overnight flights with them. Constant delays throughout the day for one flight.

For some reason the first class seats were uncomfortable. Hardly reclined and space for feet was limited. Seat 7F

6 hour flight no food. No TVs

Pros: "My friend was experiencing knee pain and the flight wasn’t full. Alaska Airlines upgraded our seats at no extra charge to give her more knee/leg space to help alleviate her discomfort."
Pros: "Straight flight"
Cons: "In seats entertainment. More food choices."
Pros: "None stop flight was excellent"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "At 7 PM July 21 we booked flight through KAYAK linked to Alaska airlines. That part worked and picked seats. We were unable to check in online (try again message. At kiosk 525 am San Diego airport it would not allow us either. By the time we made it to the desk it was 537 am. They would not issue."
Cons: "Ironically we had no issues checking in for the return flight through Delta Sunday 7 pm when we booked the flights. Therefore we could not leave San Diego and Alaskan Airlines front desk said we were three minutes late in person and would not issue boarding passes. We missed our soccer playoffs."
Pros: "Nobody was seating next to me."
Cons: "Wake me up for snacks"
Pros: "Gate waiting area was far less commotion than the Southwest gates."
Pros: "completely not flight was 11:45 they fly on 12:15 after stopping Multiple times on ramp also even flight land at 8:18 Supposed to be at 7:55 because of uber driver charge me waiting fee and in flight i ask water so she said i’ll give you in air and in air she didn’t came for 1:30 for offer water"
Cons: "crew should be better and flight should be on time"
Cons: "The flight was oversold and my husband did not have a seat assignment. The desk agent was helpful and was able to put us together"
Cons: "The airflow is too far from the isle seat making it a bit uncomfortable for the middle seat. The lack of entertainment outside of using a personal device was meh. And the price for some of the features are aggressive. Unless you are a T mobile customer..."
Pros: "Crew was so accommodating! Excellent service and personality. Smooth easy flight"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and fun. Seats were roomy with plenty of leg room."
Cons: "No soap in bathroom stall. Told crew who tried to correct it but it was broken. Boo..."
Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Pros: "Alaska service is always great"
Cons: "I waited to leave and to get off the plane"
Pros: "The one Airline stewardits was really sweet she remembered me from my flight to San Diego."
Pros: "Clean airplane. Great Alaska Airline app for managing flight."
Pros: "Very easy great movies friendly service"
Cons: "Flight was to short didint have time to finish watching my movie lol"
Pros: "No problems noted."
Cons: "It was a crowded flight, with a lot of yappy people."
Pros: "I liked the ability to be able to order food and drinks over the screen."
Cons: "-Need more food/sandwich options, and a Bloody Mary Mix (virgin) option. -wished the seats had more leaning ability, as my neck hurt a bit. - service on 1416 from LAX to JFK was very good, the stewardess was nice and pleasant, much better than some of the male stewards."
Pros: "Ample leg room (I’m 5’9, could be tight for someone 6” and taller)"
Cons: "No headphones provided for inflight entertainment. I have an iPhone 8 so I only have blue tooth headphones and couldn’t watch the movies displayed."
Pros: "Eventually left."
Cons: "Had to wait for flight attendant."
Pros: "Flight attendants were upbeat and attentive. They came around frequently with food and drink carts."
Cons: "My wife and I had our seats changed (not requested or offered) to “sit together”. Turns out this was in the last row, and between not having a reclining seat, a generally rough flight, and the constant line to the bathrooms it was particularly unpleasant. I should have looked more carefully at the seat assignments and they should have been more up front!"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Our flight was supposed to leave at 10pm. We all boarded only to be told that some ground crew vehicle ran into the cargo door and scratched it so badly it had to be reported. The report must be filled out and sent to Seattle for review. We were told by the air crew this would take a few more minutes. It took over almost an hour and a half. Screaming babies and a FULL plane. We finally changed planes to the other end of the Terminal. I got no sleep and missed a very special Labor Day Holiday with my daughter because I am sleeping now. I dont understand how your own ground crew can damage your plane and it take so long for you to decide to change planes AFTER BOARDING A FULL PLANE!?!?"
Pros: "This was the most leg room I've ever seen in economy class. For someone who's tall--that's a huge plus. However, I couldn't sleep because I was so cold. I was wearing a sweater and long pants and was still freezing."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was way too cold."
Cons: "We were bumped and downgraded because staff routed us to the wrong terminal. What a mess the Virgin takeover is at San Diego."
Pros: "My flight was great. The flight attendants were very good. I How they enforced the rules. They did it in a professional way that was direct but not bossy. The pilots were great. The landing was so good. My son called it “buttering the bread”."
Cons: "My only complaint was that my complimentary alcoholic beverage was a very small pour. I had a glass of Chardonnay and for the price I paid to upgrade my seat to premium, it should have been a larger pour or at least a refill!"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and professional, they granted me with an unexpected upgrade."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and kind. Would fly it again."
Cons: "Plane small and crowded. Food is a little pricey and they need to offer more than just 2 cookies."
Pros: "I loved the comfort of my seat. It was easy boarding and getting off the flight."
Cons: "What I didn’t like was the attitude of one of the crew members. They didn’t even make an announcement before the flight took off saying you had to go to a different website to look at the free movies. So myself and the passenger sitting next to me wasn’t able to watch movies unless we paid $10 for one of their pads. They made announcements for everything else especially to tell passengers to put their seatbelts on. Ms. Carly talked the whole flight about something."
Pros: "I enjoyed what felt like more room, especially since the flight was relatively empty and the lovely crew who seemed to be in very good spirits."
Cons: "I wish that there was food included in the price of the ticket and that there would be screens for viewing on the back of seats like with other companies. I find this to be a nice perk for flights longer than 3 hours."
Pros: "Alaska Airlines has been an excellent airline for many years. Being a Seattle native I have had a chance to use Alaska Airlines many times. All of the staff are friendly, professional and patient. The planes are modern and the flight crews the best."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Jo and lauren are the best!!! Best flight i’ve ever been on. Keep up the good work and service"
Pros: "it was a very pleasant flight .everything was smooth except for a little delayed on the way back looking forward of flying with Alaska Airlines .a airlines"
Pros: "Power outlets, free entertainment, staff"
Cons: "Very full flight"
Pros: "Rick was probably the best flight attendant I've ever encountered! Granted it was First Class, but he went absolve and beyond with our family."
Cons: "Plane was a tad run down, i.e.: cosmetically things were broken or falling apart."
Pros: "Great customer service on the flight"
Cons: "First class seat was not very comfortable."
Pros: "I liked everything except the fee for checking in a bag."
Cons: "I have no complaints ! I really like this airline"
Pros: "Punctuality and kindness off employees."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Aircraft was new. Onboard PA system was good. Flight attendants were very nice."
Cons: "Flight was late. Flight was packed to the gills. Some passengers jump the line to board early, slipping into first class. There's a disconnect between the agent who announced the boarding groups and the agent who scans the tickets. The latter doesn't really look at the ticket anymore. at least 24 people boarded during he first class call to board."

The TV interface needs an upgrade. Stop putting the controls on the arm rest. Hard to rest arm without interfering with viewing. I'm totally cool with no TV at all but it's pretty annoying to have the screen interact with elbows

Seats did not recline at all. Sat on taxiway for 30 minutes and waiting on gate to open up.

Very uncomfortable seats in business class, delayed flight for unknown reason

Cons: "Online chk in , was not easy ."
Pros: "Free on board WiFi and a very clean plan... JetBlue you are the best"
Cons: "The seats were awful and uncomfortable. Payed 100 dollars extra for even more leg room and barely had any. Such an old plane for such a long flight. The seats in the first row barely fit a female with hips. The in-flight entertainment was staticky and you could barely see the TVs. Overall, one of the worst flights I have taken on JetBlue."
Pros: "Nice crew, nice plane"
Pros: "Complimentary snacks and drinks."
Cons: "Broken seat back, broken tray table, audio input didn't work."
Cons: "Newer plane with less issues. Wasn’t comfortable at all and should be cleaner."
Pros: "Outstanding cabin service snacks & entertainment. Freezing cold cabin"
Cons: "New gate area is AWFUL!! Filthy inadequate seating & restrooms Can’t hear gate announcements."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I arrived to JFK 4 hours late."
Pros: "Cleo, our fly attendees made us feel right at home!"
Pros: "Comfort, snacks, and entertainment"
Cons: "More flights out of Albuquerque"
Pros: "We landed an hour early"
Pros: "seat comfortable"
Cons: "food"
Cons: "Boarding took a long time. We were waiting in the tunnel for longer than usual."
Pros: "Crew was friendly. Food was good, especially the beef at dinner"
Cons: "Breakfast omelette was rubbery and really not good. Layover was way too long (4h). Not looking forward to my 11h layover on the way back, but at least JFK is a nice airport and I have lounge access through one of my credit cards"
Cons: "Jetblue the best"
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "See above. Had to wait 30 minutes at JFK to open up"
Pros: "Everything was smooth, great service, friendly staff and captain. Arrived ahead of time. Free Wifi. Great inflight entertainment."
Pros: "You can always count on JetBlue for good snacks and free WiFi."
Cons: "But the snacks and free WiFi is not enough to payback the delayed departure experience. Just a week prior, my JetBlue flight was scheduled on time and then three things delayed thre flight for three hours right before we took off and now this! I was told it was due to needing to replace a crew member from another delayed flight. How can that affect so many people? The seat was also super uncomfortable and the back of the cushion was rolling forward, which made it hard to sit for that long. we also didn’t have a gate when we landed so that added on an extra 30minutes. Really disappointed."
Cons: "I didn’t get to pick my seating when I booked the flight (probably because the flight is so close to Christmas) me and my friend were put in middle seats (him in the row behind me) it was very hard to sleep that way. It would’ve been nice to be put together seeing as I bought the tickets pretty far in advanced, or at least have gotten better seats."
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and the staff was very nice."
Cons: "The wifi did not work at all and my TV did not work so I had to listen to my music the entire trip."
Cons: "In a long flight, one pack snack and a ken of cold srink is not enough."
Cons: "Entertainment system kept shutting down and because the controls were under my elbow it was impossible to not keep hitting it causing the channels to change."
Pros: "Nothing good to say"
Cons: "The whole team was rude not helpful at all all they did was give an attitude only nice person was the girl with the glasses the other 2 infront rude and not helpful at all"
Pros: "flight ok good, service good"
Cons: "they lost 3 of our suitcases took 3 days to get 2 and one is still not accounted"
Pros: "Clean plane, comfortable seating"
Cons: "Nothing specific was bad about this flight experience"
Pros: "As always, JetBlue gives one of the best mobile experiences while traveling, excellent flight as always with everyone from the staff very attentive and nice. Good to still be welcomed during the flight to those popcorn chips! An excellent overall experience"
Pros: "Everything.."
Pros: "That Harry Potter was playing"
Cons: "That our flight got delayed so many times, they changed the departure time to sooner at the last minute and we had to book it to the gate from security, we missed our connecting flight and had to sleep in the airport."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Took off and landed on time. Efficient friendly personnel"
Cons: "Entertainment system was broken and I hoped to finish a movie I started on my way to my destination"
Pros: "Non stop flight"
Cons: "Loudest airplane I've ever flown on! All though there is excellent leg room the seats were the most uncomfortable!!!!"
Pros: "Comfortable and cheap."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "It is the shortest way Skopje / San Diego home for Us in both places. I have traveled with Turkish Air 4 times. I stay longer time and like the fact that they allow two suitcases check in. I like the hospitality beg with all needed . The food was good. The crew was helpful. The entertainment was limited. Overall it was good but not as comfortable as I would like for such a long flight. It is like a contract to "stay sited"90% of the time."
Cons: "On the way to San Diego long wait at the Istambul Airport over night not place to rest. All in all the crew was very helpful and food was good. The comfort in economy class was limited could not strech legs or sleep. I did request and filed out paper work for frequent fly ( last time 6 mos. ago) but did not get any word or credit for upgrading. In NY finding Jet Blue was hard. But we liked that new plane exept for the fact that there was no food service for 6 Hrs flight."
Cons: "Luggage claim took an hour to arrive"
Pros: "Many facilities and kind crew"
Pros: "comfortable"
Cons: "the touch tv screens did not work . they were hard to control and scroll. the controls are located on the worse place(the arm rest) my neighbor kept changing my channels and volume every time they put their arm on the arm rest."
Pros: "Service"
Cons: "That you can't turn off the movie"
Pros: "Crew was very hospitable"
Cons: "The headphone jack wasn’t working properly, sound was muffled and fuzzy. Couldn’t enjoy any entertainment provided. The flight was full so I couldn’t ask for another seat either."
Pros: "Free in-flight WiFi service for all travelers on the plane. Many onboard entertainment choices available using individual LCD screen display. Many selections of in-flight meals and beverages available for purchase during your flight. Online seat selection and online check-in were fast and efficient. Additional perks for travelers available online."
Cons: "There was no food included in my flight."
Pros: "Love having wifi, tv and movies. No delays on this flight, which means that I arrived earlier than published flight times."
Cons: "Look out for broken phone jacks."
Pros: "I liked how comfortable it was space wise even without getting the extra space seats."
Cons: "I didn’t like that there were issues with the plane so we got delayed. Wish the seats went back further than 2 inches."
Pros: "On time. Liked not having to change terminals for connecting flight."
Cons: "At 5:30 am, Jetblue check in personnel in WPB were rude to passengers. Said It was our fault we were in wrong line to check our bags bc we had not read the sign that clearly said if we were pre-checked we should have waited 10 yards to the right. She refused to take our bags in the full sevice line until other passengers deferred and insisted our bags be checked In ahead of them since we had been waiting longer. There were not enough people to staff the bars in the JFK terminal before our flight boarded. Waited 15 minutes for one bartender to return from break. At next bar, in front of gate #16 there was no bartender. After 15 minutes someone appeared, only to take orders and disappear. Finally got a drink at a restaurant, nearby, but they said the drink had to be consumed there, not taken in the plane. No alcohol was offered on the plane between JFK and Burlington. Baggage crew ripped the handle off my Rimowan luggage."
Pros: "Seats were comfy."
Cons: "No coffee. Snacks were smashed."
Pros: "More room. Genuinely nice steward staff"
Cons: "Have to pay for a blanket. Snacks sold in packs rather than individual things."
Pros: "We pulled out a few min early and arrived 40 min early! Was great. Very smooth trip. Wifi very good compared to other airlines."
Cons: "A woman at the gate made me check my bag even though I know it fits in the overhead compartment because I do it all the time. We landed late and I had planned on not having to wait for luggage, so this was disappointing."
Pros: "We were running a bit late for our flight, so the employee at the check-in counter made sure we checked in as soon as possible! He even checked in an extra bag free of charge, so we could go trough security faster! Greatly appreciated!"
Cons: "My in-flight entertainment system didn't work. Even though they offered me a voucher for the troubles, it made my flight a bit boring."
Pros: "I liked my face mask. overnight flight"
Cons: "I don't think there is the option to turn off the TV"

This flight was excellent. Left and arrives ahead of schedule. The plane was only half full and they actually let people lay down in rows of empty seats. The crew was super kind to a large family with a bunch of kids who wanted to be closer together. I think Delta purposely avoids turbulence more than other airlines because I never experience jarring flights, even the red eyes. They served two meals onboard (which were honestly pretty gross but they are doing their best). Also the newer planes have really cool lighting that helps with jet lag because they mimic the sunset and sunrise colors, and have polarized windows that extend “night time” until they are ready to land in the morning. Pretty cool.

Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable"
Pros: "The crew is nice"
Cons: "Boarding was horrible."
Pros: "Amazing crew very good service ."
Cons: "Chose my seat, instead of leaving it to the airline ."
Pros: "Very nice, pleasant crew."

Pros: "Comfy"
Cons: "Seats a lil tight"
Cons: "uncomfortable seats, thin seat cushions"
Cons: "Bring ear buds if you want to watch/listen to a movie. Delta changes for ear buds Everything else was fine"
Cons: "When we booked this trip via Kayak, we thought that we were booking on Westjet. Westjet knew nothing about the flight when we tried to check in."
Pros: "The plane was nice and the entertainment on the flight was great! Flight crew very friendly."
Cons: "Our plane was delayed multiple times and we were not provided an explanation as to why. For as expensive as this fare was the fact that Delta was at fault for the delay and did not offer any compensation for that delay is frustrating. A few extra free snacks doesn’t cut it."
Pros: "Crew was good seat comfortable"
Cons: "Better snacks"
Cons: "It was lovely. It was my flight from nyc to dc that was terrible."
Cons: "the flight was delayed and so I missed my train home"
Pros: "Amazing service from crew"

Pros: "Food was good and plentiful. I definitely left the flight feeling full."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was a hassle as well as delays to Clean up and fix seat belts. Very u coordinated crew as well no one paying attention to what one was doing."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "I missed check in (not flight) by 5 minutes. Delta did nothing. I called Aeromexico. After 30 minutes on hold they told me there was nothing they could do. Called Kayak, you guys said you couldn’t do anything. Finally I got some 3rd party phone number I was given by Kayak. I called the number and it was not in service. In all my years using this app this was the biggest disappointment ever!!!!"
Pros: "Food and entertainment was good"
Cons: "The bathroom I used was disgusting."
Pros: "Hot towel was a plus"
Cons: "The seats weren't that comfortable"
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly, especially when checking in"
Pros: "The flight attendant, Winsom, was fantastic."
Pros: "Great movies...."
Cons: "It takes time and worries to find the air train and Aeroflot registration."
Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "baggage rules, check in with baggage, change fee for flight when it was not customers issue that caused the 5 min delay! Unable to reach reservation desk on line or via phone (neither was the gate agent)"
Pros: "The staff. They were very helpful and polite!"
Cons: "We didn’t leave on time"
Cons: "sitting next to a large dog and the wifi not working given i prepaid for it and actually selected the flight because it had wifi i fell hours behind on my work"
Cons: "There was a change in our flight. According to Delta you didn't confirm every leg of our flight and the plane was over booked."
Pros: "Loved the customer service & movie options"
Cons: "The flight only had snacks for free; wish sandwiches would be given for lunch"
Pros: "Good flight crew"
Cons: "Flight was delayed with no explanation."
Pros: "Nice people. Very helpful."
Cons: "LOST MY BAG IN BOSTON BEFORE EVEN TAKING OFF!!!! Did not make it, and then won't deliver it when it makes it to Kathmandu! This is most distressing."
Pros: "The airline did not disappoint and the customer service were very professional"
Cons: "Make sure the new signs are posted in all airports for boarding. That will help control people at the entrance"
Pros: "Great gate agent at JFK on the layover."
Cons: "No assigned seats on second flight til we got to JFK."
Pros: "They kept me fed and hydrated the whole time, they let you watch brand new movies free, the seats are super comfortable. They allow a personal item and carry on at no extra charge."
Pros: "That my flight was on time"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else about it"
Pros: "Entertainment, food having only two seats on our side of aisle."
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "We did eventually get there"
Cons: "What should have been a 90 minute flight took over 4 hours! Between mechanical failure, overbooking and waiting for gates and sky bridges we missed our connection. Then when they rebooked our connection on a British Airways flight, BA couldn't pull up the tickets and we wasted yet another hour while Virgin Atlantic and Delta both passed the buck as to who was responsible for correcting it so we could get on our rebooked flight, which we BARELY did with only 2 minutes to spare!"
Pros: "Staff were all polite"
Cons: "The least amount of legroom I've ever had. The most cramped I've ever been and I'm 5'2 and fly a lot. Also for a 5 hour flight, I should not have been as uncomfortable as I was. There's less cushion than before."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy. Woot! For food on the SAN to JFK flight!"
Cons: "I hate that I booked and checked in early, but still had my seat assignment changed twice before boarding, and when I got to my seat, it was in front of the exit row, and my seat wouldn't recline. It was terribly uncomfortable"
Cons: "I wouldn't rate this flight on a five-star grid--I give it 0.0 stars. Delta's economy seats are so tiny that even a small person like myself finds it agonizing to ride in them for a moderate-length flight. We need aggressive regulation of our airlines to prevent the unconscionable and humiliating way they treat economy passengers. It's not safe, healthy or humane to ask human beings to sit for hours in tiny spaces with very little air (on top of everything else, the plane was mercilessly hot the whole time). Next time I will choose a European carrier--even the discount Euro carriers are better than any US airline."
Cons: "Extreme delays"
Pros: "Comfortable, courtesy, good service."
Cons: "Please, there is never a vegetarian option. Many people do not want to eat meat. Very easy to offer a sandwich with vegetables or a little bowl of rice and beans..."
Pros: "The prior flight arrived late and then due to what appeared to be some mechanical issue, the plane was towed into the gate at about the time we were due to board. I mention this only because this was the only glitch during the rest of the flight. Loved the wide variety of entertainment available inflight, the AC outlets on EVERY row, and though I didn't need it this time, the availability of Wi-Fi Internet is appreciated. And though we left 40 minutes late, we made up part of the time and arrived only 20 min later than scheduled. Bravo Delta! I'll have to check out your version of Mileage Plus."
Cons: "I couldn't understand the gate agent's announcements due to language issue but most of all competing announcements from the gate behind me. One of the flight attendents was more bossy I felt than necessary. She told me not to put my backpack in the overhead bin, even though there was enough space and the back 3rd of the aircraft was half empty (I was in the last loading zone so there weren't many more people after me)."
Cons: "I reserved and paid for Delta comfort and ended up flying AeroMexico and Virgin Atlantic who could care less so I didn't sit comfortably, no wifi and for Virgin Atlantic I had to pay extra to get more legroom! NOT a satisfying experience."
Pros: "The comfort of first class reclining seats."
Cons: "The vegetarian meals consisted of cold grilled vegetables for an appetizer, lunch was underwhelming. So much so I dont remember it The snack was two salads. Regular snacks were Cuban sandwiches or roast beef sandwich. Even the stewards said Inshould complain to Delta. Pretty sad for what the cost of a first class ticket."
Pros: "On time, leg room, entertainment, service."
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Better bathroom access for premium economy"
Cons: "Delayed as usual."
Pros: "Smooth price getting boarding pass and we were anytime sit together"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "Crew service; food and general customer service"
Pros: "Yes! They were helpful and nice as well on the flight."
Cons: "Mhm.. Nothing."
Pros: "Yes, crew were great"
Cons: "Checkin was seamless. flight comfortable and pleasant. Unfortunately not much can be done about the worst part, which was total immigration disorganization on arrival at JFK. Coming from Rome which is a huge airport, it was shameful to see the difference. Sigh."
Pros: "The crew was courteous and helpful. The cabin was clean and seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Aircraft interior was a bit dated. Entertainment was via handheld device either your own or one provided by the airline."
Pros: "The crew and the service was excellent."
Cons: "Seat pitch was too tight, especially when the person in front of me pushed their seat back."
Cons: "The seating were very uncomfortable the tv screen are small and old fashioned. Compare to other airlines very uncomfortable and they made me check in my carry on bag to charge $60 so disappointed I been taking this carry on for long time no other airline ever made me do that will not recommend"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Crews service"
Pros: "The flight attendants"
Cons: "The pilot was too aggressive in regards to the take off and landing, landing was way too hard and fast"
Pros: "Food was ok and flight was early."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess and had to take a bus in frigid temps. Plane was from the 80s not entertainment unit and everything feeling old and rickety"
Pros: "Nice seat. Good food. Good service."
Pros: "Personal screen with all recent movies at no charge, my flight was almost 8 hours and I received four times meals and snacks"

Pros: "Our pilot was great. Kept us informed, was pleasant and got us in early. I appreciated the extra information he provided regarding expected turbulance and arrival updates."
Cons: "There wasn't individual entertainment unless i used my own device."
Pros: "NOTHING !! I lost my flight because in the email I received you all put the wrong airline on it and nobody took responsability for it . I ended up paying $311.00 to get the next flight back to Austin ."
Cons: "In the email it was stated that my first flight was with British Airways, so i wasted time making the wrong line . Only to get to the counter and waste more tome trying to find me in the system to then tell me my flight is with American Airline . I double check my email where it clearly shows: 1st flight-British Airway and 2nd flight-American Airline . This is not acceptable, nobody wants to take responsability for sending me the wrong information in the email. Had I know both of my flights were with American Airline I wouldn’t lost my plane because I would make the right line to begin with ."
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Not accessible. The tv wasn’t captioned"
Pros: "Just about nothing."
Cons: "Aged plane, aged bitter crew."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants and nice to kids"
Cons: "Being held inside the plane for a total of 5:30 hours before taking off. Even if there were several concurring factors, it it necessary to find a better procedure in order to avoid keeping passangers inside a plane with the prospect of taking off in the next half hour repeated every half hour! For the ones of us traveling with children it is even worse, and becomes a real nightmare."
Pros: "Arriving on time for the next connection"
Pros: "That it got me home"
Cons: "With one exception, personnel very unfriendly."
Pros: "Roomy seat"
Cons: "Lousy food"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Cons: "The airplane was very old and I couldn't hear or see the "entertainment"."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Older plane"
Cons: "Poor customer service"
Pros: "Flight departed and arrived on time. Good, friendly, efficient service on flight. Cabin crew took special care to arrange for those with on-going flights and tight connections to be accommodated to make these tight connections."
Cons: "Tight seating and aisles."
Pros: "I paid extra for the bulkhead seats for the leg room, and it was worth it. In general, it was an easy flight."
Pros: "At least they kept throwing food at us on the plane."
Cons: "Arrived 3 hours early to CDG, and a long line to check a bag. It took so long, eventually they allowed people to cut in line as their flight departure times neared. 2+ hours later, I finally got to a kiosk to print my boarding pass and baggage tag, but now another line to drop off my bag on the conveyor belt. With less than 30 minutes to departure, and still haven't gone through security, I gave up and made my checked bag a carry-on as well. And then tight seats on the plane, with no individual screens (the movie played on a tiny screen 2 rows up in the aisle.)"
Cons: "I paid hard-earned money for an expensive flight to Madrid. Not only were we very delayed on the way there, we were also delayed on the way back. We spent 3 hours back and forth on the tarmac stuck on an old bus in 100+ degree weather being delivered conflicting information, summed up to the seats being "broken". We got a "bathroom break" during which was talked to very rudely by the flight attendant at the gate, and then was almost left behind by the bus on the tarmac. Additionally, once we got onto the plane, it was extremely old (I'm talking no TV's, ashtrays on seats, filthy tables, dirty seats). To top it off, when I went to the restroom in the middle on the flight, I saw flight attendants drinking Tito's and soda in the back in the plane and talking loudly. I am not usually one to complain- but this was a particularly bad experience and terrible ending to my vacation."
Cons: "We boarded, sat on the plane for a while, backed up from the gate, then sat for a while longer. 3 hours later, we had to go back to the gate because we reached the legal limit they can hold us on the plane on the tarmac. Another hour and a half or so later, we finally took off for JFK. We missed our first connecting flight and the second connecting flight I was able to rebook."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Cannot believe how American a treated it's passengers. 3 hour delay to JFK. No apologies. Missed connection to Paris. Not any customer service agents to be found in JFK at 11:30 pm. No explanation on what next. No hotel.. Nada. I'll never travel with American again."
Pros: "Ice cream as a snack was a nice surprise."
Cons: "This was a nine hour flight and the entertainment system was very old. There were screens in the middle of the plane with the movies chosen for you. On a flight this long, the customer should have options. You also were not able to control your the air. So the flight was freezing! The lunch options were meatballs or cheesy pasta. I thought these were risky. What has happened to chicken?"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "They would not let me board for being less than 5 minutes late."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I paid for 2 seats with extra legroom to find out that the entire plane was extra legroom. The flight attendants weren't friendly at all. I have had nothing but trouble with American for this past trip. From losing my reservation to this, it has been a nightmare. I hope I never have to fly them again, I tried complaining to customer service. You can't call them ; only email them. I could go on and on. They need lessons with their treatment of their passengers."
Cons: "Seat was awkward. Staff didn't respond to 2 calls of with the button. Air seemed exceptionally dry and was oddly warm."
Pros: "I initially booked my flight via Kayak for a cheap no hassle price"
Cons: "My initial booking was with Iberia Airlines and a few days prior to my Flight was switched over to American Airlines. Had i known I would be flying with AA, I would have opted for a more expensive option as I've a great disdain for AA. My flight from JFK was not the model aircraft I was promised and thus did not have ac chargers or Wifi in the plane. In my opinion, I was bait and switched via Kayak"
Pros: "The stewardess/flight crew were awesome."
Cons: "Airport staff, tight seats and boarding process."
Pros: "The British Airways flight to Europe had on-demand movies, with a screen on the back of the seat in front of you. The American Airlines return flight only had a cabin screen, where everyone watched the same movie. I will say, however, that the two movies I watched were excellent, so the outcome was fine (but given the option, I'd take the BA option of on-demand viewing!)."
Cons: "The seats on the AA weren't quite as comfortable as the BA flight (seats sat pretty straight upright, and not too plush... but all in all, not terribly uncomfortable)."
Pros: "Did not catch that flight. Delayed about 8 hours."
Pros: "That I slept a bit"
Cons: "Uncomfortable chairs, no Economy plus option, old plane, no individual TVs for private entertainment."
Pros: "Variety of entertainment."
Cons: "Flight attendant was a little snippy sometimes."
Pros: "The flight from San Diego to Chicago went well. We left on time and arrived a little earlier than expected. I was worried about the weather delaying our flight once we go to Chicago but we encounter different problems. as I will explain next."
Cons: "flight delay"
Pros: "I liked the crew they were really helpful"
Cons: "The plane was to old I guess and it was a bit uncomfortable there was not enough space between passengers"
Cons: "Lost my luggage. Very difficult to get information and long process to give my info on where I was staying. Was told it was on the next flight and should be arriving by 1-2:00pm depending who you talked to. I was told they don't start delivering lost luggage until 5:00pm. At 6:00pm I call for an update. No update available other than its on it's way. I called again at 8:00pm, 9:00pm 10:30pm & 11:15pm. Still no update was given. At around 12:30pm AFTER I WENT TO SLEEP, someone come to my hotel room to drop off my luggage. I had an important meeting for early the following morning and if my bag did not arrive, I had no business clothes for the meeting. I could have bought some new cloths but since I was TOLD my cloths would be arriving by 1-2:00pm and be delivered by early evening, I thought that not necessary. I believe I was told that so BA"
Cons: "Service was great but seating was cramped and uncomfortable, entertainment system was massively out of date, and no power outlets were available. Nickel and diming for extra (proper?) legroom was not appreciated."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Hour late crew rude"
