Alaska air out me in standby for a 4 on flight that was already overbooked and had 10 people in front of me.

Pros: "Flight management and service is better relatively"
Cons: "Gate agents are useless"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing."

Oh yeah and they announced the wrong arrival gate too. I'll never fly Delta again. There are better airlines that treat customers with more respect."
Pros: "Courtesy seating"
Cons: "At least 10, including my entertainment systems didn't work as soon as we took off. A 4 1/2 hour flight cross country with no entertainment, very disappointing. The crew was very unorganized, they couldn't even figure out how to give drinks and snacks in an efficient manner with initially skipping several rows without asking about either. Seat headrests were not adjustable up and down."

Nice new plane 737-800 max with comfortable business class seats and space!

Pros: "Nice and comfy seats"
Cons: "Don’t have long layovers"
Cons: "No tv"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Did not let me check in so I missed my flight. Last time I will ever pay for an Alaska airline flight."
Pros: "Me gusto que el vuelo salio a tiempo, tamien que los sobrecargos son muy amables y el abordaje aunque se hacen unas lineas enormes es un tanto veloz conciderando la muchedumbre, con el poco tiempo que tienen para ocupar la cabina en realidad hacen milagros, mil dracias"
Cons: "El bocadillo que ofrecen es muy pobre y en mi criterio o mejor no proveer nada o mejorar la calidad, el cafe, bueno; deja mucho que decear. Y bueno que decir de el espacio entre acientos, va uno con las rodillas en el respaldo de el vecino al frente pero bueno en fin no esta todo tan mal, AeroMexico Gracias por sus atenciones."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly."
Cons: "The food could have been better but it wasn't horrible!"
Pros: "COmfortable seats and great staff. Food was the most bland that I have experience on Aeromexico but they all can't be home runs."

Cons: "late leaving - not the worst"
Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "I upgraded to AM PLUS so that I could take advantage of the EASY CHECKING. WIDER SEATS. BE AMONGST THE FIRST TO GET LUGGAGE. ALL THIS ITEMS WERE PROMISED BY YOU WEBSITE. non of these things happened. I was instructed to email to request a refund. Took ten days to here back and was denied. You guys have a perfect procedure for not giving refunds. Can’t talk to anyone by phone then take 10 days to deny. By that time most will just give up. I am a frequent flyer that will NEVER fly with you again and neither will the employees of my company."
Pros: "Smooth and easy."
Cons: "I didn’t like the food"
Pros: "Good service"
Pros: "Price, timing, efficiency"
Cons: "Every time I would fly out in Aeromexico we never payed for luggage I don’t know why they changed their policy to charge for every bag."
Pros: "Nothing!!!"
Cons: "Everything. The customer service was horrible. They did not honor the seat reservation and stationed my father in the back of the plane instead of the front of the plane as agreed on my reservations. They charged for baggage. The whole experience was horrible!"
Pros: "Easy, inexpensive flight from Chicago to Mexico City."
Pros: "Great crew, great fare and pretty easy and convenient process."
Cons: "Seats aren't the most comfortable and very little leg room"
Pros: "The number of movies in the flight from Mexico City to chicago"
Cons: "Food is terrible. Lines in Argentina and Mexico City are insane. I will avoid Aeromexico in the future as it was not worth it The planes were old. People on board nice. But the land crew in Buenos Aires was very rude. The lines were interminable and people not organized at all. argentina is beautiful but the international airport is one of the worst. And Aeromexico seem to add to the chaos."
Cons: "This airline seemed to be unprepared at every step of the way. When I showed up to the airport to check my baggage (this was 2 hours before my flight) there was a huge line of people already there. I went to the back of the line and after 15 minutes of not moving I texted my family that I might be missing my flight. As I got closer to the front a nervous and overwhelmed Aeromexico employee went to the back of the line and handed the last person a paper and told her she would be the last person allowed on the flight. Anyone lined up after her was turned away because they had showed up too late. It seemed to me that those people would have made it onto the flight if the airline had been prepared and ready to check everyone in on time. When I was finally able to check my bag there were only 20 minutes left until my flight was supposed to depart. I rushed to the security checkpoint and ran to my gate in fear of missing my flight, only to find another large line of people. They hadn't even started boarding! After waiting 10 minutes in line (10 minutes before the plane was supposed to depart), the crew slowly strolled to the gate. They didn't even seem to care. Overall, my experience was below average, but seeing how people were not allowed to board due to the airline not being prepared for this flight, I would say I won't be flying Aeromexico again."
Pros: "As soon as we were on the plane the service was efficient and very courteous."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled. The process was very disorganized, they did not honor previous seat reservations even when people paid extra for a better seat. They treated customers as if it was their fault."
Pros: "Great service inside the plane"
Cons: "Rude people checking in bags"
Pros: "Flight is on time"
Cons: "Everrything was ok"
Pros: "The staff was friendly and the food was pretty good considering it was airplane food. They came around and gave drink refills."

Cons: "Sold us tickets without assigned seats"
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "My luggage was lost and no one from Aeromexico wants to help."
Cons: "4th row electric switch has not been wking for weeks"
Pros: "My purchase was cancelled 1 hour after confirmation because the name on the debit card did not match the passengers name. I was buying a flight for My girlfriend. I've don't this purchase 11 times in the past 10 months. I had to repurchase a ticket at the airport for a flight 2 hours later."
Cons: "I was emailed the cancellation not even a call to try to fix it. Sorry I don't check my emails every 10 minutes"
Cons: "Gate assignment was not released until 15 minutes before flight. Flight was delayed one hour. Then it was delayed on run way 45 minutes."
Pros: "flight on time, service onboard, flight price"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "My husband's knees were pressed against the seat in front of him so much so as to cause indentations in his legs. fortunately the flight wasn't full and we were able to spread out over 3 seats. It was still quite an uncomfortable flight for him."
Cons: "Missed connection No reebooking done by klm no hotel voucher no taxi voucher very bad ground service in MEX"
Pros: "Check in was fast and with attention and good information about connections"
Pros: "The plane itself was very comfortable, didn't feel crammed in the seat. The food was decent, it made up for wasting all my time in line and not eating."

Pros: "The plane was running at very low capacity, so many of us had rows to ourselves"
Cons: "No power outlets at the seats, No video, difficult to find power outlets before boarding the plan, the boarding area was very sanitized."

The service on board was wonderful.

Cons: "Smallest plane ever. Absolutely no leg room or overhead space."
Pros: "The flight back to Columbus made up for the flight from CLT to SJC."
Cons: "This was a multi city, round trip starting out of CLT. My connection was way too close, and we missed the connection due to a mechanical problem. The lines to get vouchers were super long, and the hotel was not the best. It was way after midnight when I got to the hotel, and I did not feel safe staying at a Quality Inn. I had to walk to my room outside, and had leave in the morning in the dark as well. I was traveling alone. Please put your passengers in a better hotel, closer to the airport. I did not expect that from American Airlines."
Pros: "Flight attends are very friendly."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Running out of bin space by Group 3 is just wrong."
Pros: "It didn’t happen"

Cons: "The crew, the whole experience,"
Pros: "Just ok"
Cons: "No customs forms on board. Big inconveny"

Cons: "Just the weather — so nothing anyone can control"
Pros: "The flight itself was fine."
Cons: "All the choices to eat were laden with gluten, salt, and sugar. Surely a salad is no heavier than what they carry, but might not last as long. For those of us gluten-sensitive, watching our glucose levels, or salt intake there’s nothing. A 40 minute gate change from B29 to A11 in PHX was barely long enough to walk far less find and buy a healthy meal. Yet again I arose at 4am and had nothing to eat until after 4pm. ALL the airlines can do better."
Pros: "Flight was routine except that I was astonished and pleased that the movie was “Love Simon”. Thank you American for maybe helping to change some attitudes in the center of the country."
Cons: "The food is still laden with gluten. The only gluten-free option was peanuts."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was delayed six hours. Flight crew arrived late further delaying trip. Connecting flight missed. Promised hotel reservation by American were non-existent when arriving in Dallas. Had to try to sleep in airport. Will never willingly fly American again"

Pros: "Everything seemed to go as normal. We were able to get 5 seats together."
Cons: "Wasn't a dislike, but would have liked to board a little earlier with kids of age 5, 7, and 9. However, all was fine and staff were pleasant."
Pros: "I was upgraded and dinner was delicious."
Pros: "Friendliness of crew"
Cons: "Fourth roundtrip flight where I have been unable to use my upgrades to upgrade to first class on any of the four segments. What good are the upgrades?"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Seats are small and not ergonomic"
Cons: "They did not have any customs and immigration forms on the plane so everyone had to pick them up as we got off the plane and fill them out before proceeding to the customs area. It was very inconvenient for all passengers since there was not a good area to fiill out the forms and it slowed everyone down. First time I can ever recall the airlines not having the forms available before we landed"
Pros: "I was taking students and we had seats all over but they rearranged so my students could sit together. It was a nice flight with a friendly crew."
Pros: "British Airways I feel did everything to make it as best as possible."
Cons: "American Airlines (British Airlines partners) are a horrible airline. My 8 am flight has a mechanical issue. Which they kept up on the plane till 11. Now no mater what other plane I catch idmiss my connection in Dallas. Which means I don’t get to Paris on time. Which ruined my plans to surprise my gf and propose to her. It took one call to British Airlines to get me rebooked. Something american was taking hours. I still won’t make it on time but at least I’ll make it. American then misplaced my luggage and it took two hours to retrieve it. Turns out it was sitting behind the counter the whole time the kept telling me it would be on the baggage flame area."
Pros: "Everything was on point"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Early departure and arrival. Great flight and crew on a full flight."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Although the flight was delayed from San Jose and Chicago yet they reached as per original schedule time"
Pros: "Flight boarded on time and landed 30 minutes early. Best part is the gate was open in Chicago so we truly arrived early. Flight crew was great too. Very helpful and courteous."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Ease of boarding and on time flights"
Cons: "Leg room and entertainment"
Pros: "Nice seats, friendly staff and crew."
Cons: "Boarding groups are not clearly announced-and with the threat of checked baggage this makes people angry and spiteful to other passengers. They forgot to bring the immigration forms onboard, only had the customs. They didn't give us pens/pencils to fill out the customs form. This made offboarding confusing and messy. What entertainment? No screens."
Cons: "Airline throughout mentioned connecting flight passengers are okay as the flight will land almost at the scheduled arrival time but once onboard bluntly announced that we don't have further information. This is cheating"
Pros: "On time. Polite gate reps. Helpful crew. Smooth flight and on time."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "- This was an older Boeing 738 plane that American Airlines refurbished. It still has the old style overhead bins and just feels old, - Like on many on these older planes, the power outlets don't work. - No food offered, even for Executive Platinum member. Unpleasant crew."
Pros: "Legroom was decent and the flight was fairly empty. So lot of space."
Cons: "No vegetarian food though it was mentioned earlier."

Pros: "We had a very pleasant staff!"
Pros: "Great crew!"
Cons: "No in flight entertainment and no electric outlet on the flight. Very basic airline."
Pros: "Everything. In flight entertainment was great and service as shops."
Cons: "No issues."
Cons: "Not letting me know my first leg was operated by AA was very confusing and frustrating. I couldn't find Westjet at the airport at all. Had to guess from the departing time!"
Pros: "Boarding was fine. We started late but they managed to get us to our destination on time so I made my connection with no problem."
Cons: "I had on a jacket but I was so cold I was shivering. I asked if I could have a blanket but I guess they don't have those anymore. The stewardess did ask them to give us a little more heat but it must have gotten turned back because I was shivering again by the end of the flight."
Pros: "The gate agent was able to find me another option."
Cons: "The phone agent was really bad at helping."
Cons: "The flight was not smooth, it seemed like the pilot didn't know what he was doing. I arrived an hour early for my flight and my bag got left behind. I'm only here for a day and a half and my bag won't reach me for another 24 hours. Really poor experience with AA."
Cons: "Looks ghetto and no wifi"
Pros: "Water and sodas"
Cons: "Onboarding crew made me pay 200 usd for extra weight without telling me that I could move lbs from one bas to another and pay less."

The business class seat was uncomfortable & there was No storage room. Worst layout I have ever seen. Whoever was responsible for designing should be fired! Previous international British air flights had a lot more storage and a much better layout. It was hard to reach electronics and basically everything else without twisting into a pretzel

Flight delay by 2 hours made me miss my connecting flight and lost baggage. Struggling in a new city without any belongings. Please help expedite the baggage delivery.

A little more space in economy would be great. I’m a small person 5’2” and 125lbs and I felt squished in like I was sitting on top of the people all around me. I can imagine how the other taller and larger folks felt.

Great crew and flight.

The connections were very tight, I had delays on the first 2/3 flights and almost missed the connecting flights. Check in at Austin took nearly an hour and almost jeopardised making the first flight

Cons: "Other airlines have complimentary snacks so I was surprised that we had to pay for those."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seats were tight"
Pros: "The crew was great and seating an entertainment options were wonderful."
Cons: "Food. Other airlines in Asia have a far better selection of meals."
Cons: "This flight was cancelled"
Pros: "The crew was mediocre, nothing special. I asked for a extra pillow and was denied. Seats were cramped, I expected more from British Airways but comparing them to China Eastern, I found China Eastern more memorable."
Cons: "I expected more from British Airlines, maybe my expectations and reality didn’t chive?"
Cons: "We had to leave our surfboard bag @ our departing airport because they said it was too big to fit into a 787 international aircraft. I’m a pilot, this is a huge lie."
Pros: "Moving to window seat appreciated"
Cons: "Hard to get over having to recheck our luggage"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable"
Cons: "No complementary water on Baird."
Pros: "Fed twice enroute"
Cons: "Did not hand out landing cards during the flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and tried to accomodate everyone. The food was pretty good for airline food. The snacks and beverages were plentiful. The tea they serve is delicious! Good movies, online games etc."
Cons: "I did not like the very tight seating with basically no leg room. Very uncomfortable. Unless you can afford 1st class or the pod type loungers. There is no room in the economy section."
Pros: "Crew members were very friendly, respectful and welcoming"
Cons: "The flight did not provide any complimentary water, tea or coffee which made the crew members have to run credit cards for every beverage someone purchased... even water!"
Pros: "We didn’t make the flight from London to Rome because of flight delays. there was a huge time delay with our plane sitting on at the terminal and unable to de-board due to scheduling errors. This delay prevented us from making our connection to our next flight and now we are staying in a mediocre hotel for the night and have to wake super early and miss a day of fun at our final desitination. In general I would just move on, but we heard the customer service agent reference that they over booked the two flights to Rome. I guess we were the u lucky customers x two flights because we didn’t get a standby seat in the next flight then the prior agent gave us positive hope that we would get on. Lesson- make sure you have at least 3 hours between connecting flights."
Cons: "Hearing that we were booked on an overbooked flight."
Pros: "Nice new plane. Spacey."
Cons: "Ba.com app is flaky. Looks like s/w not tested properly"
Pros: "the staff"
Cons: "aircraft, food, entertainment"
Pros: "Good service ...very convenient... reliability..... but please pleaes start using new aircraft’s I have been flying Ba 118 to London for 12 years ..... I need to update your aircraft’s .... when I do Lhr - NYE the aircraft’s are much better.... all my business friends have now shifted to Emirates because of the service and aircraft’s..... I keep flying BA because of the convenience of the direct flight and loyalty I have for the airline..... but we deserve better aircraft’s....."
Pros: "The Crew was very helpful and friendly!"
Cons: "It was a little cramped for space for my legs and I am not very tall."
Cons: "There was a new born next to me and actually it was difficult to sleep."
Pros: "The crew of British airlines were nice"
Cons: "Changed flight , couldn’t check in. I bought ticked on kayak but vayama was the actual ticket seller on behalf of Iberia which is a British airlines company. I couldn’t check and and customer service of vayama didn’t want to help and asked me to call Iberia. I called Iberia and after staying on hold for 40 min they told me to use the same confirmation number of Iberia flight on British airlines website. After a long day and a long and expensive uber ride I made it to sfo to see the flight has been delayed... never ever ever going to buy an international flight from Iberia, and very hesitant about kayak redirecting sales."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly, responsive, and helpful. They made sure we had timely service for all aspects of the trip."
Cons: "We were involuntarily downgraded from Business to economy for our 9 hour flight from London to Mumbai. Outside our party of 3 there was also another party of 3 in the same boat as us. It seems like British Airways is too aggressive with overbooking the higher end sections of the flight, which seem much less likely to have people 'no-show' (either because it's for work or because they've spent so much for the tickets)."
Pros: "The flight was pretty standard in most ways, nothing too great/too bad."
Cons: "The food service was horrible. After dinner service, that was it. I didnt see anyone in the aisles with water. But the worst was in the am (this was the Chicago to London flight) there was nothing offered before landing. My experience is that there is usually tea/coffee/a light snack. But not even water was offered. I have told this to a number of people to get their opinion. Everyone is surprised. On the flight from London to Lisbon, nothing but tap water was free."
Pros: "The entertainment was great. The food was enjoyable and happy to see they offer vegetarian choices. Overall great experience."
Pros: "Did not like that I had to buy a coke. Like common really?"
Cons: "Food was dry for dinner and not very tasty. Breakfast was terrible"
Pros: "The price of the flight offers is what made me purchase through kayak, but the disconnect with the airline and booking agency left me stranded and ultimately required me to buy a flight directly that will take me almost half a year to pay off not to mention the inconvenience of switching airports and sleeping on a bench for 4hrs."
Cons: "When I missed my flight, the airline would not offer assistance because I booked through an online vendor (webjet through kayak) and when I called webjet they failed to help me rebook, made me buy a new flight, then when I called looking for the flight information, they managed to cancel the flight and then claimed I had requested this when I had done no such thing. On top of this they only offer next calendar day booking so even though they are fully responsible for botching up the second flight I booked. I have talked to 10 individuals from different agencies. Everyone passes blame and responsibility off on someone else. On top of everything else, noone but the American Airlines representatives showed any empathy or concern for my being stranded for the night. Based on this experience, I will do everything in my power to dissuade people from using Kayak, webjet, amadeus and British Airways."
Pros: "All was good"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "General advantage of flying with BA like T5 and lounges"
Cons: "Food quality going down every time and no flight entertainment for a 4 hrs flight."
Pros: "Large seats, fast service."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Movie choices were great."
Cons: "I ordered a vegetarian meal well before day of flight. They said they did not have my order. Thankfully there were still vegetarian options (and I was at back of plane)."
Cons: "Misleading about food policy."
Pros: "Food was ok."
Cons: "One of the worst business class experiences I ever had. Seats are small (7 per row, 3 of which are facing backwards). If you have a non aisle seat you need to climb on top of another passenger to get up (which is unacceptable I'm business class)"
Pros: "Flying in 787 is always a joy. Quiet; great movie and music selection; nice contemporary user interface."
Cons: "The seat legroom was not the worst I had but sleeping in the chair was somehow very hard. I think the seat needed a little more backward inclination. There was a headrest, which was a good idea but didn't work out as expected."
Pros: "Movie selection was great!"
Cons: "Short staffed. No coffee with breakfast! Cream and sugar on tray. Flight from London to Stockholm delayed one hour due to air traffic!"
Pros: "Comfort. Entertainment. Service. Comfort. Did i mention it was comfortable? Also dark. Very dark. Which is exactly what you need on a long flight. Food was also exceptionally good for an airline. The bathrooms were also clean and had nice sinks."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Landed ahead of schedule"
Cons: "Baggage did not arrive as was not put on flight at San Jose despite checking it in 2.5 hours before flight"
Pros: "we got a 787 dreamliner, the coach seats had good space between rows, so we had enough legroom. food - dinner - was tasty, and breakfast was plain but was completely OK. entertainment was excellent, lots of new movies, and also older movies and TV programs. crew was courteous and very helpful, and boarding was quick and smooth. all in all, a very positive experience."
Pros: "Blanket and quiet to sleep"
Cons: "my screen didn't work"
Pros: "nice modern electronics"
Cons: "breakfast high in calories but very low in pleasure"
Pros: "Good service friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Very friendly and good flight attendants. Pilots talked to passengers and kept us updated throughout the flight."
Cons: "Crying Children!"
Pros: "Flight got cancelled"
Pros: "Once I was actually at a boarding person to be checked in, the process was quick"
Cons: "Announcement was made to all passengers inn rows 20-40 or so to line up, which we did. Then, we were told only priority passengers were to be boarding. Priority passengers asked where their linne was, and a BA crew member snappishly answered "where the sign says Priority". The sign wasn't able to be seen, and these passengers shouldn't have been faulted for BA's ineptness. After being checked in, I asked an another BA agent where to go. Upon arriving at the aircraft, I was rather frostily told "you're onn the wrong level" and pointed to the stairs. I let them know that I was on the 2nd level due to the direction of the BA staff. My seat space was reduced to a mere 12" when the passenger in front of me abruptly reclined his seat all the way back."
Pros: "This was maybe a regional carrier, the flight was a bit more mundane compared to the wide-body crossing the Atlantic, however, there was nothing to really complain about. Boarding was a bit of a madhouse, but in the end not too eventful."
Cons: "Nasty food! Frozen solid salad."
Pros: "Timely departure; early arrival. Customer service oriented crew. Due to an oversight on the crews' part (turbulence during distribution of meals), my neighbor and I were not provided meals. When they eventually discovered their oversight and our choice of meal was no longer available, they provided us with meals from first class. Applaud owning a mistake and fixing it."
Cons: "Chair configuration is appalling. Paid extra to sit in exit row of standard economy, seat 30J (middle seat). Leg room was ample, seat width was adequate (for someone of small stature) but separation from neighboring seats was non-existent. My neighbors on either side were both plus-sized. I had nowhere to place my arms and effectively had to sit with my arms folded from SJC to LHR. Room for improvement."
