Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I like how the crow did help me with my dizziness and provided me with an extra oxygen to breath better."
Cons: "I don’t know, but I always find it difficult with food smells, then make me sick and did today in the flight"
Cons: "Everything and being on time and not loosing all my luggage"
Pros: "We really enjoyed this airline!"
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Food was great. Clean bathrooms. Great entertainment."
Cons: "We had our passports and boarding passes checked five times in the course of 2 minutes by five different people one after the next. My cabin luggage was searched right before boarding. I appreciate the need for security, but that was excessive and unnecessary. In the peak of the Corona virus craze, the security made all passengers take off shoes and walk without any protection. This is not Qatar Airways doing - New York JFK security B S, but I am sure airways companies have some say to change it."
Pros: "Everything is excellent"
Cons: "All is well"
Pros: "Flight attendants were excellent, food service very good. If the service is so good in economy, I can't imagine how nice it would be to fly in business class. I would fly Qatar Airlines all the time if the price is right."
Cons: "Economy row seats don't give you enough space for your legs between rows, but this is a systemic problem among airlines. You have to live with it or move up to business class."

Cons: "Lactose-free breakfast option was fish... I get that some people like fish for breakfast, but to me it was a little nauseating. Just ate around it and was fine though. Overhead air vents could be improved. felt a little plane-sick toward the end of the flight."
Pros: "Fabulous service from start to finish Excellent cabin, spacious & impeccably clean Super choice of food and drinks We travelled in the business cabin which I have to say, rivals many so-called 'First Class' products. The crew were courteous, addressing us by name and nothing was too much trouble."
Pros: "Cabin crew service was very good. Flght with Airbus 350 plane was really comfortable and quite. They put extra care for kids and babies and all of kids get gift bag with toys, chocolate etc. which makes everyone happy Especially kids. I personally like to watch new release movies and enjoyed to pass my flight time."

Cons: "No goodie bags this time"

Cons: "Hi I travelled on 7/16 from Philadelphia to Cairo through the Jordanian airline . Unfortunately the luggages didn't reach to Cairo airport with me . 3 days later they told me that the luggages in Jordan and I have to travel from Alexandria city to Cairo to receive my luggages . When I went their , I found my luggages were opened and missing much items . I made reports on the airport. The employees in the airport they wondered why the opened the selling box , and the box looks empty. The weight for this box was 32 kilograms in the time of shipping. And I paid $400 for extra weight . But when I received it was like 20 kilograms. Plus I paid $350 for Qater airline for shipping 3 luggage . That's means I paid $750 for shipping 3 luggages and I received it looks empty . I need refund for all shipping and $5000 for damages items , or I will complain this airlines through the American court . Thank you"
Cons: "Thank you"
Pros: "Crew, food."
Cons: "Lack of communication. Flight was two hours late from Boston to Doha. Not once were we told about the length of delay or what we need to do about connecting flights. And toilets were very smelly right from the start as it seemed that itinerary has seeped into the floor over time. And there were only two items as a main course and one of them in very small quantity. I was told that too many veg main courses were loaded by mistake and very few non veg."
Cons: "I understand it's the industry standard, but seats are too narrow with shared armrests."
Cons: "In their Business Class they only had two shower room and they wait was 7 hours! I now totally dont trust Kayak and it's ratings. Qatar Airways sucks!"
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "all my flights were delayed"
Cons: "Seat cushion was hard for long flight time!"

Pros: "The food you serve is good! We also appreciated the little gray packs of toothbrush, toothpaste, socks, etc. that you shared. The staff is very professional, and we enjoyed our flight,. We enjoyed the "quiet room" in the airport."
Cons: "I had a little trouble with the dvd monitor."
Pros: "Crew was fantastic! Food was above average."
Cons: "Qatar Airways needs to abandon its draconian policies and disconnected, overy segregated procedures. Also, an allegedly five-star airline needs to upgrade aircraft which would make FlyDubai blush. No entertainment guys? Really?"
Pros: "Schedule of flight"
Cons: "Space between seats were smaller"
Cons: "Very bad flight and airlines. I will never try it again. The staff dealing was very bad."
Pros: "This plane had lots of room and was comfortable. The food was good and unexpected. The amenities provided was thoughtful and useful."

Pros: "Everything was good."
Cons: "Could have preferred more snacks or fruits which we could pick up while flying."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "Great service, alcohol selection"
Pros: "nice but slow in business class"
Pros: "This was an older plane with no upgrades including no Internet and the very small poor quality Monitors in the back of the seat in front of each passenger. The seats were very uncomfortable. The transfer in Vancouver after customs involved going outside in the cold to and from the bus. There was no warning. The customs area red jacketed help personnel told us that it was just as fast to go throught the general customs are instead of using our Nexus cards and this turned out to take forever. So very disappointing."
Cons: "Better communication at all levels. Remember that the overall strength of a chain is only as strong as its weakest link and this trip had many weak links for us making it a challenge."
Pros: "aircraft was new, clean, and with many new amenities that are appreciated - device charging, Internet access. The crew was great."
Cons: "The seats are tough after a few hours of siting. Children screamed throughout the flight. To the crews credit, they recognized the issue, and suggested a move to empty seats. However,there was a screaming and coughing child behind these seats also. Perhaps grouping families to a section would help?"
Pros: "Lots of leg room"
Cons: "Not a thing"
Pros: "The usual efficient, friendly WestJet crew. Nice to fly in one of the new Dreamliner. Super smooth landing."
Pros: "Premium seats were more comfortable, crew in our section was great, newer airplane was lovely, food and drink were really good."
Cons: "Can’t think of anything within WestJet’s control that was bad."
Cons: "Minor point. They boarded the plane very early. We got to the gate 1/2 hour before departure, and were almost the last ones to board."
Pros: "Didn't see much of crew. Food was crazy expensive for what it was."
Cons: "Better food for price, or an option to pre-book a proper meal at time of buying ticket. Plane was cold and no blankets."
Pros: "The plane was nice and quiet, and the crew was lovely."
Cons: "It was so cold!!"
Pros: "Crew were very caring. Seats were OK"
Pros: "Did not fly. But delayed by a while"
Cons: "Tv in the seat to make the long flight pass more quickly."
Pros: "ON TIME."
Pros: "Boarding was easy, crew was pretty friendly and we reached London an hour early which was brilliant."
Cons: "Maybe let us know in advance that there's no TV's in the plane, or meals. Leg room for someone who's 6'4" is non existent, especially when the person in front of you puts their seat back."
Pros: "i was pretty comfortable being in an aisle seat"
Cons: "didn’t love the lights coming on in the middle of the night"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The flight was safe."
Cons: "The flight to be on time."
Pros: "Crew were great, service was spot on."
Cons: "Plane was old, seat didn't recline, no tv screens in front of seats, temperature was freezing (but in fairness I was at the emergency exit) and worst of all NO MEAL?? ON A NINE HOUR FLIGHT? Arrived very hungry."
Pros: "Boarding went well. Although it was a full flight, they asked for volunteers to check in hand luggage (free of charge) I did, trying to help. But once I picked up my luggage and got to destination point, I noticed that 2 small items (gifts for family) had been pilfered. Not happy and will not volunteer to help again."
Cons: "No food on plane, no entertainment,( unless you download the app) Above pilfered items"
Pros: "Excellent all round. Good price. Nice seats. Excellent staff. Good boarding and disembarking. Highly recommended."
Cons: "It does not have free food and entertainment, but for the price this is acceptable."
Pros: "Staff were helpful and smiling. Good value"
Cons: "We needed a better choice of food"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff. Boarded and got off quickly. Clean airplane."
Cons: "I felt cramped in my emergency exit seat, especially having a larger size person sit next to me. My seat was not comfortable. Being tall provides no advantages on westjet. Had to look down at my phone the whole time for entertainment, neck hurt. Wont fly again"
Pros: "Kind helpful staff"
Cons: "That you have to pay for entertainment and food on long haul flights"
Cons: "24 hour delay in Calgary because of maintenance problems with the plane. Meant I lost one precious day while visiting my 91 year old mother."
Pros: "Loved WestJet! They are the best airline, always super friendly"
Pros: "staff on airline great"
Cons: "Lost my luggage hopefully I’ll get that tomorrow. Airline charged me 70 pounds for that. Staff at customer service were not helpful at all."
Pros: "Hi. I actually am glad that the company is following up because I was having a hard time finding an email to contact. I actually came to kayak to book my ticket for Friday to go to London however when I got to the airport it says it was for Monday. Because I had to be at London the next day for a wedding i had to buy another ticket for almost 1000. I also couldn’t contact u so I’m emailing now. I didn’t get on the plane for west jet because I am already in London. I also have a screen shot that shows me that my flight details were for Friday however another email shows me that it’s for Monday. Even the workers at th airport were confused and felt strongly bad for me. I would like a full refund as well. Thank you. Please contact back. 416806-6530 or email me at email@example.com"
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled due to WestJet reasons (plane was not safe to fly) the following evening the flight was supposed to depart at 7pm we didn’t take off until 10:37 pm causing an arrival of 940AM into London instead of 7:23AM primarily because the crew they chose for this new flight was coming from Montreal so we had to wait for them to arrive."
Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Lack of maintenance. Seats did not recline, seat in front of me was broken. No reading lights available. One washroom became inoperable. Just showing a lack of maintenance or cost saving measures until new planes are delivered. Not a great impression for a carrier striving to compete against Air Canada. I would say they are competing with Air Transat."
Cons: "We couldn't take the flight as Westjet could not get us there on time and would not hold the flight ...... see above"
Pros: "The flight was not cancelled in spite of poor weather"
Cons: "Flight on tarmac for 2 hours after loading passengers no word regularly from pilots or anyone for a long time. Baggage loading and no accountability for huge delays for lost luggage containers? Who is the logistics team? This is not the first time westjet has provided poor service on their international flights. Training if ground staff onsystems is poor. He guest services at tronto openly claimed they did lot know how to operate certain screens for transactions."
Pros: "We survived"
Cons: "On an 8 hour flight there’s no complimentary meal. I paid for a meal and it was worse than free plane food and starved for the rest of the trip. The chairs were horribly uncomfortable with no lower back support and we were not even given pillows and blankets. There was also no free entertainment. I rented a tablet and had it taken away an hour before landing while I was in the middle of a movie. I might have been ok with that if the flight attendant had politely asked for it back rather than rudely waving and pointing while I stared at her blankly trying to figure out what she wanted. Next time I’ll pay a bit more for an airline that respects its passengers and our comfort."
Pros: "I was traveling with my 11 month old daughter and everyone went out of their way to assist us and I didn't feel like a burden to them. When she was sleeping on my lap during the flight they even brought me my meal in portions so I didn't have a huge tray to balance over my baby."
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Free upgrade and gate check!"
Cons: "No checked bags or meals for economy passengers"
Cons: "Pre-ordered meals are costlier than those purchased on board. The crew explains it by saying that they give some extra food just before landing, in lieu of that but what they give is too meagre and its not the customers choice."
Pros: "The flight attendants where really nice and so was the service wouldn't change a thing here."
Cons: "I didn't like that someone was reclining in there seat in front of me and it was so far down that it was uncomfortable even to sit in my seat or get to my table. Also was very disappointed that I had to pay for food even though it was way over 8 hours, in the end didn't even bother about food was not much of a choice. Also no TV on this long haul flight was really disappointed again, so I had to pay for a tablet was hugely disappointed. Needed more leg room was cramped on this flight."
Pros: "Very cheerful and friendly crew. Made the journey very enjoyable."
Pros: "Comfort, friendliness and ease of travel with Westjet"
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Pros: "Friendly, polite crew. Well organized boarding"
Pros: "comfortable seats friendly crew"
Cons: "no entertainment system, fee for renting tablet not enough room in overhead no complimentary food or drink service"
Pros: "Only problem is my flight didnt have screens and you had to pay for a tablet. I get screens on my flights to Edmonton and Sask for work with Westjet all the time but on a long flight to London they're majorly lacking. A basic meal over a 9.5 hour flight should be included as well."
Cons: "1 for usb charging ports though. I still love Westjet but different priorities for International flights should a no brainer."
Cons: "Staff was impatient and snappy when telling passengers to do something the first time. Smiles were forced and didn't seem genuine. Otherwise the flight arrived safely and early."
Pros: "food was good"
Cons: "Delays in connection flight, arrival gate and departure are far away and no help from airlines."
Pros: "the entertainment system was incredible."
Cons: "It was a very long flight-- including a meal in the ticket would have made it more enjoyable."
Pros: "After our horrendous flight to America with Norwegian (never again!!!) it was refreshing to have some space and the staff was friendly"
Cons: "lnternet was very expensive ($4-5 for 30 minutes, so l did not bother) no entertainment whatsoever, but okay for a budget flight during the night"
Pros: "When they fixed the aircraft it was overcrowded but okay"
Cons: "Their dishonesty. We were delayed 25hours. I am out of pocket by several hundreds of pounds. Two months later they have still not compensated me. yet the Canadians that were on the fight have been reimbursed. The message is loud and clear if you are British do not fly West Jet"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and easy, and the gate attendant was quite friendly."
Cons: "Very rude crew members; delay leaving YVR. Instead of being honest and upfront about having to leave an HOUR later--and also lying by saying that we'd be flying into Gatwick in only 8.5 hours as opposed to 9.5--they made us wait in our seats while the craft supposedly waited for food to be loaded. The best line was, "Our plane will be landed an hour earlier! But because London doesn't like it when we land early, we're going to wait here for a while on the tarmac so we make it there on time.""
Pros: "Amazing crew who made us feel very comfortable as we traveled with our 9month old daughter. Westjet stands out because of their commitment to service"
Cons: "6 hours delay"
Pros: "Low cost, supportive seating"
Cons: "Meals are extra Arrived a bit early and had to wait about 15 min for someone to attach the gate"
Cons: "Plane needs to be upgraded, don't charge for meals or baggage"
Pros: "Crew and new, spacious aircraft"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "Only item that could be better is quality of onboard entertainment."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to late arrival of aeroplane."
Cons: "Would have been excellent but it was 30mins late"
Cons: "Lost bags"
Pros: "The crew was efficient and well trained"
Cons: "The food needed salt and the bread was a little dry."
Pros: "Generally a smooth experience."
Cons: "The seats are too close together. Charging for drinks is out of character for a good airline. Go back to free non-alcoholic drinks."
Cons: "Should have included meals on flights that are 8hrs."
Pros: "Crew were very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "Quick, on time, professional."
Cons: "Shuttle transfers... I prefer direct to plane boarding."
Pros: "Surprised it was as good as it was having read so much negative news about what British Airways had become"
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Crew bare minimum service entertainment not functioning properly check in difficult flight operated by aer lingus"
Pros: "I liked the variety of movies/television series shows that were available and having USB charger at every seat. Also liked that they gave headphones free of charge as well as pillows and blankets."
Cons: "The seats were fairly narrow and I had the unfortunate luck of having a mechanical box at foot space taking away half of it. (on the previous flight there was no box and foot space was fine). On this journey I was sitting on the aisle being constantly bumped by the crew moving up and down the aisles. I’m not a big person and wasn’t in the aisle however, on the aisle opposite me was a bigger person. The crew were constantly moving to avoid that person and hitting me. Expect tight seating and narrow aisles."
Pros: "When my flight was cancelled due to weather they got me on to another flight right away and I didn’t miss my connection. However I waited in line for an hour and a half, maybe I was lucky because I was near the beginning of the line. There was only one person for awhile helping re route people."
Pros: "Flight crew were super friendly and helpful."
Cons: "AerLingus representatives noted that my luggage would be shipped directly to Ottawa (Madrid-Dublin-Toronto-Ottawa) - this was false and caused significant pain in Toronto,"
Pros: "The crew are the friendliest, nicest crew. I’ve flown Iberia and JetBlue the past year and the Aer Lingus crew are so much more hospitable and service oriented. From cockpit announcements keeping passengers up to date on flight info, to food service, the crew does an excellent job."
Cons: "Boarding the plane was too chaotic. There seemed to be a lot of confusion. They were boarding rows 8-23 but no one was getting through the gate to the plane. Before anyone from this group got on the plane, they added rows 24-46. Ambiguity causes stress. A more orderly lining up of passengers would be less stressful."
Pros: "Very kind, knowledgeable personnel!"
Cons: "Overall poor customer service!"
Pros: "Food was good, individual entertainment system was good."
Cons: "Cramped spaces"
Pros: "Service and people were nice enough"
Cons: "Seats are a bit uncomfortable and thin. Less room then normal US domestic flight. Lost my bags."
Pros: "Quick efficient"
Cons: "Extremely uncomfortable. The seats were too close together and not enough room, but overall the airline is great. Will travel with them again, but will travel business class next time."
Pros: "Friendly crew, clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Luggage control was a bit off, passengers criss crossing trying to find space. I think the crew could have managed that better."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "They lost my luggage. I was with my luggage and personal belongings the whole trip. Received my luggage 2days after returning home."
Cons: "Cramped seats no vegetarian food and our bags went missing for three days!"
Pros: "I didn't like anything!!"
Pros: "Check in, boarding and flight all great"
Cons: "delay before take off was one hour"
Pros: "friendly crew. flight was early"
Cons: "No free wine. Could not hear movies most of time."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Slow crew service couldn't get coffee served beyond first 5-6 rows before landing. Crew just putting in time chatting with each other. Couldn't get boarding pass til morning of flight."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "My baggage is still missing a week after my flight arrived and no news about it. I can't get in touch with anyone from the airline or who can help me. Pretty terrible experience."
Pros: "Short flight to London"
Cons: "There was no boarding pass issued for the Lon - Ny trip. Additionally, when we arrived to London, there was no direct transfer from our landing gate to our departure gate forcing us to have to exit and then reenter. There was no ground avail to assist either. Since the dub - Lon flight was delayed, we have 60 min to get a boarding passes / re renter security / & had to run to the flight which was a mile all with a 2 yr old."
Pros: "Good attention to detail without being in your face... very prompt"
Pros: "in flight entertainment was diverse and kept me occupied. the food was quite good, and free since it was a transatlantic flight. smooth flight and pleasant crew"
Cons: "Boarding is very haphazard and disorganized. Somewhat the airlines responsibility since they could keep it more controlled by enforcing what tows they will allow to pass. I couldn't do an online checkin with any of my Aer Lingus flights. As a result, my partner and I had seats far from each other and at the back of the plane."
Pros: "Good in flight entertainment system. Lots of options."
Cons: "Be very aware of your seats proximity to the restrooms. I paid for the extra legroom seat that turned out to be where everyone waiting for the restroom stood. I felt very bad for the passenger who was seated directly across the aisle from the restroom door."
Cons: "3.5 hr delay due to mechanical issues. Missed connecting flight."
Pros: "I enjoyed the turkey and cheese pretzel sandwich, but I found myself unable to get comfortable in my seat. I have tailbone issues and I was in pain the entire time being that the seat was so cramped and hard."
Cons: "I found myself unable to get comfortable in my seat. I have tailbone issues and I was in pain the entire time being that the seat was so cramped and hard"
Pros: "Flights were smooth and on time. Boarding was fine. I could walk around. Restrooms were clean. The egg breakfast dish on flight from LAX to Dublin was yummy."
Cons: "The seats are too small. I'm 5'11 and had to have my legs in the aisle even though there was nothing under the seat in front of me. The sound system for movies and pilots was hard to understand - not clear. Aisles too narrow."
Pros: "Movie options were awesome on such a long flight!"
Pros: "Crew was great very attentive"
Cons: "My monitor kept restarting or would freeze"
Pros: "The takeoff, flight, and landing were all very smooth. The staff were nice and courteous. The boarding went smoothly."

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The snack was really bad."
Pros: "Comfort and room on board."
Cons: "The flight was "booked" on BA but was actually on Air Lingus. BA had NO record of the flight, my reservation or anything. We had to run around the airport until we figured out a AL flight was the right one."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Had a toasted sandwich that was very dry and a litttle overdone. Serious ear discomfort on landing"
Pros: "I was comfortable enough to fall asleep before takeoff. No long lines or waiting"
Pros: "All was perfect"
Pros: "On time, Boarding very good. Crew were brilliant, especially when they removed an intoxicated woman who was harassing the family seated next to me."
Cons: "Didn't eat dinner on flight as it came too early for a flight at that time. I ate in airport. But the breakfast was just OK & comfort I guess is par for the course these days, seats on economy fares just seem to get narrower & narrower. As far as the entertainment system it just didn't work properly (just as it didn't on the flight over) and the choice of films, TV and current affaires was pretty bad."
Cons: "check-in baggage was lost during journey and still couldnt get found. Very annoying."
Pros: "Lunch was actually ok!! Decent recognizeable tasty chicken is what I chose. Crew was ok, not so friendly, looked stressed actually."
Cons: "Flight was delayed- we left about 45 minutes late but landing in Toronto, it took about 2 hours. Luggage took forever. It took forever to disembark. Customs immigration was a walk through no lineup. Changing flights in Dublin was stressful too - having to line up for passport control when I only had 50 minutes for changing flights. Original flight was delayed, then it was a long walk from one end literally to the other end, then passport control!!!! Although flight was really cheap, I'm n sure I'll use them again. All the flights took forever to disembark, to take off. And the washrooms smelled!!!!"
Pros: "crew was nice and friendly and the plane landed earlier than estimated."
Cons: "Middle seat was occupied on my flight."
Pros: "Attentive crew very appreciated!"
Cons: "More legroom"
Pros: "Seat very spacious, was given a extra legroom sit"
Cons: "My screen was not working properly. I didn’t ask for help as I had work to do so I didn’t need it."
Cons: "I was in the aisle seat and kept getting bumped into by the crew as they walked by. I leaned toward the middle seat but still got hit with the cart, people’s bums, their hips, etc. The flight landed at 4am, so I was tired and really wanted to sleep but couldn’t. Also, the AC was not working during the flight. We were all melting until we started descending. Then, while waiting to get off the plane, they turned off the AC completely. Bad move."
Pros: "Room in the seat was humane. Respectable leg room and not squished with fellow travelers. Boarding process orderly."
Cons: "Crew late to second leg of trip. Visibly tired from a long day."
Cons: "The crew was outstanding and the aircraft was new and comfy"
Cons: "Taxi time to gate was almost half hour."
Pros: "Crew was good for the situation."
Cons: "Made me check a bag saying the overhead bins were full. When we got on the plane there was a huge amount of bin space. Wasted 45 minutes of my time waiting for a bag. Made us sit on the plane for two hours before takeoff even though they knew we were delayed upon boarding."
Cons: "Rude staff, not willing to help"
Cons: "The flight arrived early but sat on the runway for almost a half hour before we were able to exit the plane, causing quite a number of passengers, myself included to miss connecting flights! Not okay."
Pros: "Left on time. TSA boarding pass."
Cons: "1. Seats uncomfortable- too close together. Causing the person in the middle to lean on me. 2. The seat in front of me reclined into my space leaving me no room to extract my food tray and to cramped to work on my computer. 3. When buying a ticket no assigned seat. Paid 100.00 extra to select my seat and it didn’t allow me to choose anyway. When I went to select my return seat I had two choices- a middle seat or pay an additional 35.00 for a premium seat. 4. Had to pay 140.00 for luggage with no carry on (70.00 each way) 5. Not going to fly American anymore."
Cons: "Entertainment system broken. No heart Healthy food"
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Having to check my carryon even though I was in the 12th row. I saw some passengers putting two items in the overhead, which makes it unfair to others."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival and good flight all around."
Cons: "Need better coffee"

Cons: "Boarding seemed very chaotic as staff tried to get people to check bags at the last minute. My chair would not decline properly."

Cons: "The TSA agent was cold and it took a supervisor to ensure our needs were met."
Pros: "I am so glad that there is a direct flight from Des Moi es to Philly. Our flight home arrived a little early and the crew was very responsive and professional."
Cons: "Unable to access the internet. It was American flight, not Alaska flight"
Cons: "Bathrooms didn't work delaying initial departure an hour. Ran to connecting flight and made it prior to door being closed. 12 passengers in total were told that we would be boarded and then were abrubly told none would be boarding our final leg to the Caymans even though our seats were available. Horrible company culture not focused on customers."
Cons: "We were unfortunately stuck on the tarmac for 45 minutes. I ran to my connecting gate but they had already closed it. There wasn’t a service rep at the gate. I walked to another gate and there was a very helpful rep who rebooked me to a nearby city. It overall was disappointing and caused me to get home about 3 1/2 hours later."
Pros: "Pleasantly surprised by AA. I would definitely fly AA again"
Pros: "All AA employees I interacted with were professional & very helpful to me & my family. Thank you"

Cons: "Didn't enjoy nor appreciate the nearly 9 hour delay due to plane maintenance issues."
Pros: "The flight was good, as well as the attentive staff"
Cons: "Kayak messed up royally by saying this flight was an Iberian. We went to the Iberian terminal as the email I received said the flight was an Iberian. After waiting on line for twenty minutes we were informed that this changed to an American Airlines/ British airways flight. We had to AirTran to the next terminal and almost missed the flight. Kayak needs to keep their customers better informed."
Pros: "flight crew on my way to BWI were great!!!"
Cons: "american airlines does not care about the privacy of their passengers. even after several calls my information wasn't updated correctly and my flight confirmation was passed along to members who weren't even traveling. there was no in flight entertainment and in order to pick seats together i needed to pay extra (i thought i was flying with american not spirit) apparently the only way i can be helped is writing a letter to customer service which they will review within 10 business days. THANKS american for starting a war in my family and ruining my trip. unfortunate the crew is so awesome but the customer service is mortifying, rude, inconsiderate and completely mechanical. i dont ever intend on flying with them again unless necessary."
Pros: "Nice new Aircraft. Good service. Reasonable food."
Cons: "Seats have little leg room. Like most....thry pack them in!"
Pros: "We pleaded with attendant to let us take our carry on. We were first to board and all others on the flight were volunteer bag check only. It is Very difficult for me to walk. We packed in small carry on just so we could avoid the baggage carasol. She could have Easily granted our wish and treated is in volunteer manner like everyone else. But no way."
Cons: "Everything else was fine."
Pros: "It got us there on time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment on the longer flight. Uhgggg."

Pros: "I was treated in a professional fashion"
Cons: "I don't think it is right for the airlines to have any passenger seating in such a tight space."
Pros: "I loved getting up close and personal with others."
Cons: "I didn't like being stuck in a window seat next to two oversized passengers. The person in the isle announced to the middle seat that " I'm giving you notice that I need all of my seat". So the middle seat took up part of my seat, and I feel cheated, because I couldn't use all that I paid for."
Pros: "The flight crew was exceptionally kind"
Cons: "I rarely check bags but this was the second time in the last few months that I have and they were both terrible experiences. Last time, on my return flight home from Phoenix, I was forced to pay $250 for my long sports bag, even though the tag to get there was still on it and my receipt showed that it was the standard fare and was bluntly told the other attendant 'didn't do their job.' This time, after my travel mate already checked in and payed for two bags, when we brought the bags to the counter to drop off, we asked for future reference what the procedure was for AAdvantage card holders to get their first bag checked free. Her response was that she couldn't refund our money. I told her I wasn't asking for a refund and repeated my question - how to do it in the future, to which she responded that we should have come straight to the counter without checking in but all accounts are different and she had no idea what his was. To her credit, she did warm up after that, perhaps she heard how abrupt and unhelpful she was being but it was unfortunate to start yet another airport experience with coldness at American Airlines"
Pros: "Very nice plane with a good entertainment system."
Cons: "The flight attendants seemed almost angry. Banging trays,. bumping carts into nearly every row and even skipping some rows on drink service."
Pros: "Have a great trip without any problems."
Pros: "Entertainment had many options with a few good and recent movies."
Cons: "I purchased Alaskan tickets, hoping for their legroom, baggage guarantees and excellent beer. Instead I got an American Air flight – one of their trusted partners. None of their deals carries over to AA. I guess I will pay closer attention next time."
Pros: "Fast boarding and left gate on time on a holiday"
Cons: "Felt cramped in like cattle"
Pros: "I got home eventually"
Cons: "Wifi way too expensive compared to other airlines"
Pros: "The only thing to like was arriving on time."
Cons: "Paid extra for priority boarding, that was a mistake. We got boarding group one but by the time all the families with kids, first class, and frequent flyers went ahead of us they called all remaining groups together. Forget about overhead space left over, we had to gate check carry on. Seats were very uncomfortable, no room under the seat because of a big metal box for power outlets. No leg room, sat shoulders and thighs touching with neighbors. No meal service, just drinks and pretzels, luckily we ate before departure. Never again!"
Pros: "Got pretty much what I expected from economy."
Cons: "Lack of planning for carry on bags."
Pros: "How dark the flight was to sleep"
Cons: "Delayed flight"
