Cons: "Felt hot in the plane."
Pros: "The movies offered were decent"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat I sit down after they squeezed us all in like sardines and come to my surprise there is no window in my aisles it had been covered up in plastic . First making my area narrow than all the other seats and between the plane leaving late and the terrible process of loading people on the plane . Delta airlines was all about the up sale from charging for every bag to charging for internet ,food so on and so forth. Also one bathroom in the middle of the plane ? REALLY ? Out of tissue , paper towels , and tissue one hour into the flight . What in the Hell is going on with this airline ? Won’t fly with them again ."

This was my single major complaint. The food was not great but typical of an American Carrier. The foreign airlines do better on food. The last time I went to Europe I took WOW, the cheapest budget Airline and the leg room was MUCH better. You would think Delta could do better."

Gate agent in SLC complained she was the only one there and could not help. Tried to send me tohelp desk which would have made me miss my flight. Flight attendant couldn’t move my back pack in bin did not tell me she had a bad shoulder. She should not be working then if she can’t lift a small backpack. Omg"
Pros: "Smooth flight in time. Didn't realize would have to go thru another TSA security check point. Otherwise smooth flight, great communication from the captain."

Cons: "Too many people, no room for carry-ons, departed almost an hour late."

Pros: "Fast as always. Very professional"

Pros: "I had 45 minutes to transfer planes in Atlanta and made it in plenty of time even though it was far. plenty of information given regarding incoming flight and departure. Boarding was also easy."
Cons: "The engine noise in the plane was so loud I couldn't watch a movie. My gluten free meal was awful and tasteless. I would have preferred yogurt and fruit instead of the chicken and vegetables with a rice cake."
Cons: "Delay from Seattle to pasco."
Pros: "They offered water and snacks It was quick"
Pros: "The seats were the widest with the most cushion and padding I've ever had on any flight, I think all their seats were like that. The plane we were on had more leg room than your average flight. Also the backs of the chair were very tall, leaving even mpre head room perfect for tall people . I fly a lot and sometimes my knees hit the seat in front of me or when they recline it shoves the tray to close to you. Not on this flight there was enough room for me to lay back in the seat had the adjustable headrest that went up and down and also curved in to hold your head from falling on your neighbor next to you. Love the fact they had the USB plug-in in front of you. And the crew constantly kept coming through to empty trash and offer beverages. The plane was clean bathrooms in front and back of the airplane. Over all quiet engine and we were above the wings. Temperature good."
Cons: "The crew member that was checking in people at the gate would talk so fast we could barely understand what he was saying on the overhead announcement. I was traveling with someone who was hearing impaired so we were unaware of that they were getting ready to board. The electronic TV monitor wasn't updating to say boarding to notify people that would be helpful for the hearing impaired. Or--if a crew member is muffled on the announcement or talks too fast you can't understand or know what's going on. The most frustrating thing for me and my daughter we were both expecting to use Delta online entertainment. There are no monitor screens in the seats in front of us on this plane. So we were able to use our phones, but it would not download and once It finally downloaded we couldn't upload any of the movies. Connection speed way too slow. The warning said there were too many people on it at that time. Also I like it when they offer free headphones for people that don't have them. An example that would benefit people that don't want to listen to loud people on the plane or babies that are crying."
Pros: "Over all was okay, but when we all boarded the plane, they last minute said the pilot would be late, and delayed our flight for almost 2 hours. We were almost late to our next flight in Minneapolis to Raleigh which was also pretty upsetting. But, the service was decent, we didn't order any food besides the free complimentary drink & snack and the entertainment was very good. There was a wide range of films, shows, and podcasts to watch."
Cons: "Management was very bad- Delta screwed up really bad"
Pros: "Staff were courteous. Captain explained reason for delay."
Cons: "Over 20 minute delay to begin boarding with no explanation. Boarding process very slow due to excess carry ones needing to be checked."
Pros: "The good the crew and the bed"
Cons: "The overheads were noisey and loud and made it difficult to sleep"
Pros: "Great crew,seating was more comfortable than the other legs of our trip, very attentive cabin service."

Cons: "More legroom"
Pros: "Punctuality Pleasant crew"

Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "Seats, entertainment, crew attitude"
Pros: "Crews was excellent, always refilling water which I can appreciate so much. Keep it up! Loved the United pilot at John Wayne who came out just to say hi, let us know we were in good hands."

Cons: "Late departure. No entertament .poor duty free on board , no tabaco / alcohol as promised on the web / on board magazine Slow service."
Pros: "The crew were good, polite and attentive."
Cons: "Getting through security and to the gate was downright bizzare. We were directed to the special F gate, where we had to stand in the freezing rain in front of a locked door without any explanation. This is after already packing our jackets in. Then we got screened and just as randomly told to go to the main terminal, where we got screened a second time, just as stringently (pulling everything out, padding down the kids). No explanations whatsoever, the craziest experience, completely messed our plans to get a bite up, I wish we were given some information ahead of time that we are going to be sitting in a single room zone. The flight was ok, but hellishly hot all the way."
Cons: "I never made it. See reasons above. feel free to check into the letter I wrote your customer service. Terrible"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Lufthansa crew is usually good, so no complaints."
Cons: "Even the crew said that the plane was too crowded, and that they should have used a larger plane for such a full flight.There was no entertainment on the plane, unless you provided your own device. My flight from Chicago to Frankfurt was on a very large plane so I have no complaints, but, the plane chosen from Frankfurt to Tel Aviv was much smaller, and packed to the gills, with passengers, and luggage, and crew. The crew themselves remarked that the type of plane used for this flight was inappropriate."
Cons: "There was no food included, although the flight wasn't low cost, we didn't even get drinks, not even water. We asked for a glass of water from the crew, but they were busy selling the food and forgot about us."
Cons: "LH flight from Seattle was late, and I barely made it to the LH connecting flight to TA. Landed in Tel Aviv, but my one bag didn't arrive with me. Looked for the Lufthansa desk, but there is no such thing. They have farmed out the task of dealing with lost luggage and masses of confused to irate people to another firm. There were approx 40 people trying to get some information from 4 ladies, one of whom was new. They were unable to deal with many reports at a time. How about take a number and we'll call you up in turn? Instead it was like a push and shove pressure cooker just to find out the status of said missing bag and make a report. I was dealt with last. At this time, I was exhausted and angry. The ladies were very good and very kind. They informed my ride of the delay, and told me that the lost bag would come on the next flight. They took me out of the area to get a drink and a bite to eat. We waited. It came. We drove to my destination a few hours away. Never have I had to deal with such a time consuming shambles to find out the bare minimum of information. I finished the trip and will never fly with Lufthansa again."

Cons: "Needed entertainment"
Pros: "Great planes."
Cons: "Flight attendants didn't want to help me find space for my bag. There were many small pockets so I asked them to help arrange so we could fit my bags. Without even looking they said there's no room. 'I can't do that' is what I was told. So who can?? (Maybe she was a transfer from united)"

Cons: "the sits can be more comfortable"
Cons: "The plane was extremely small and uncomfortable. There were only two lavoratories for 60+ people, the other two being reserved only for the 10+ people in first class.

Pros: "Smooth boarding, clean seats/plane, nice small aircraft (2 rows x 2 seats each), surprisingly spacious (more legroom than expected - and I’m 6’2”)."

Cons: "Everything! The crew was rude, no entertainment whatsoever, late boarding, late departure and bad experience with the check in process both in app and on website."
Cons: "That I was forced to check my baggage. I never received a chain ticket for my luggage. The flight has a 32 hour layover and KLM lost my luggage and it was not found until a week after my arrival back home. I still have not received my bag at this time. The boarding crew was manually tracking who boarded and who didn't. It was a cluster."
Cons: "Why do the crew have to slam the overhead and catering compartments to get them to shut?"

Cons: "No Marlboro light cigarettes on the duty free shopping cart"
Cons: "One of the senior stewardesses we're very rude. Whether it's her personal opinion or KLM's policy, it's unreasonable to think that a 3 years old child could or should hold her pipi over 20 minutes, while they slowly and inefficiently trying to give out food. Several parents were there with the request to let us through to the toilet with small children and she smiled in our face and said "no, we will finish first and than you can go". She might be not fit for the job anymore, but KLM can't afford this kind of treatment."
Pros: "The staff was fast and curteous."
Cons: "There is not anything to complain about besides the usual discomfort of travel."
Pros: "Overall, my trip to Cardiff via Amsterdam was smooth and delightful. I've flown a few short trips this summer and I was pleasantly surprised to find KLM still offered complimentary snacks. What a refreshing change!"

Pros: "Night flight so no entertainment allowed sleeping"
Cons: "Kosher food could be improved"
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."

Cons: "The seats rows are too close - high density. The flight was late."
Pros: "Nothing the worst customer service I ever had"
Cons: "The flight was canceled due to mechanical difficulties and British airways delayed helping us for 2 hours and then told us to use the phone 800 number to book a different flight. we needed to connect in London for the flight to Tel Aviv. The man on the phone barely spoke English and set us up with a flight that would not get us to our destination in time for our religious Sabbath Friday night. When we tried to explain the situation he hung up on us. We called back and tried to explain again we either spoke to the same man or another Indian man whom also spoke unintelligible English and he also hung up on us. In the mean time my wife spoke with the counter agents and they tried to find us another flight but by now other airline counters were closed. An hour later I tried the 800 number again and spoke again with the same Indian guy, when I asked to speak to a manager he gave me a hard time then finally said ok, put me on hold which I stayed for a while and realized he just put me on hold indefinitely. Finally after being in the airport for 9 hours we found a flight from United and a family member booked it online for us which we took to Tel Aviv and got us here only 2 hours later than our original flight which had a 12 hour layover in London and we were going to spend time touring but did not get to. As far as I am concerned British Airways has done a horrible job and no one should ever fly with them again. Unfortunately our flight home is with them I hope it goes smooth."
Pros: "The crew is friendly. Relative to some other flights I've had, the Economy section is not terrible."

Cons: "When I reached the boarding gate, the attendant took my boarding pass as if he was checking something and changed my seat without asking me, issued me a new boarding pass... no explanation. I had a long flight to London from Delhi already so I was too tired to immediately realize what he had done. It only occurred to me when I boarded the flight. I had booked a premium seat in advance and had paid $175 extra for it. He basically moved me to a regular economy seat at the back without asking me or refunding me. That's fraud."
Pros: "For the back of the bus, the seat was still pretty comfortable and I did manage to sleep. Boarding was easy, The entertainment seemed great, thought I fell asleep"
Cons: "I didnt' manage to get a good seat. I sat in the middle row, last row of the plane. : ) Also, i must have fallen asleep, but I was never offered even a cup of water."
Pros: "the flight was very comfortable and we had a very pleasant flight. The food was very tasty, and all in all the flight was very high standard."
Cons: "there was some air hosts strike so service was slower than expected, but all in all the crew was able to attend everybody's needs. landing was a bit rougher than usual."
Pros: "Security staff was rude in England and our suitcases was lost And they did not even let us know"
Cons: "Their own employees didn't know that the flight was delayed, though their app had sent out a notice, and they refused to let me go through security, having already given away my seat more than an hour before the flight actually left. Then they refused to admit responsibility and do anything to help except to continue to put us on standby on their own full flights, knowing we wouldn't be able to get on one of those flights for at least a few days. They did finally give us a hotel for just one night and that was only after we kept reminding them that this was all their fault."
Pros: "I was late to the flight due to an accident and I have got a new flight quite easily"
Cons: "I have got a seat that can take t back, no one told me in advanced this is the situation and the flight attendent keeped telling me why it can't be done instead of looking for a solutioni"
Pros: "The cabin crew, as always, were unfailing patient and polite and as helpful as they could be. Given the situation with the IT problem at BA, it was amazing that we were scheduled, and took off on time and arrived in Tel Aviv on time. Congratulations to all!"
Cons: "We were at the back of the plane, which was pretty difficult for my 6'6" husband and his long legs. We were told every seat was full (because of the IT problem). However, after takeoff it became apparent that there were some empty seats, but they weren't offered to us. One man was asleep across three exit row seats, for example. We had two seats in a three seat row, which would have given us a bit more room, but a woman was moved to the window seat with us, to accommodate a religious man who didn't want to sit next to her. She was very nice, but the whole situation was annoying and distasteful. And, unfortunately, the food was just as bad as our last flight."
Pros: "Great food, great entertainment, short flight that went smoothly"
Cons: "Cabin temperature a bit high"
Cons: "Food Accommodating bags when space is available"
Pros: "the crew was grate, brakfest was good ."
Cons: "baggage was lost"
Cons: "I WANT TO CAHNGE TIME OF FLIGHT. BRITISH ASKED TO HIGT PAYMENT. IN THIS AMOUNT I CAN BUY TWO TIKETS IN LOW COAST COMPANY AND I HAVE ENOUTH MONEY TO BUY FOOD. PERSON THAT BUY TIKET FROM THE SITE CAN'T CHOISE A SITE AND ITS COME AUTOMATIC WITHOUT TO CAHNGE/"
Cons: "we order kosher food for the flights, on the first flight we recive only for 1 pessanger so on the way back we call few days before to the airlines company to confirm that is kosher food for both passengers and they confirm and again we didnt recive only 1 passanger recive for flight over 20 hours way to be with out food"
Pros: "British Airway's service is cordial and comfortable, which goes a long way to making the entire trip the same. Obviously they have no or little control over potholes in the air and wind turbulence."
Cons: "The flight was scheduled to arrive 2 hours before our connecting BA flight departed Heathrow. Unfortunately because of loading delays on our original flight, we arrived in Heathrow 40 minutes late. The crew said that 60 minutes is the designated minimum but we used all of the 80 minutes plus, and it airport was NOT crowded. If BA is connecting to BA, then you have a responsibility ahead of time to address this problem and keep connecting passengers from getting overly distressed in a strange airport."

Solid airline and service

Pros: "I like the ability to watch movies"
Cons: "The cabin was hot... air didn’t blow well... the crew was abrasive and rude. I asked simple questions and got long explanations for no reason"
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: "Xx"
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 plane was so hot temperature wise. I was literally sweating in a T-shirt"
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: "5 hour delay missed my connecting flight because of this neither airline offers a refund or anything since I booked them separately.... Now I have to spend more $$ and time thanks"
Pros: "crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system broken. No heart Healthy food"
Pros: "Boarding is orderly."
Cons: "Why aren’t seniors and parents with little kids allowed extra time to board? You have to pay for WiFi after the first hour? No kosher options for purchase in the food menu, clearly not looking out for all Americans."
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."
Cons: "I waited over 45 minutes for luggage to even begin to unload. Absolutely ridiculous"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We were stuck in the plane at the boarding gate for 2.5 hrs with no water or food or able to get off and wait in the airport. This caused us to miss our connecting flight and not make it to Iceland causing us to lose hundreds of dollars in accommodation and car rental etc fees in Iceland. American dis nothing about it."
Pros: "Great no complaints"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Packed"
Cons: "The plane was too warm before take off."
Pros: "The flight entertainment is really nice."
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: "Yes Old planes again. No charging ports no entertainment. The crew was nice but the whole experience of this trip was awful."
Pros: "From the time we got to the counter to boarding and then the flight, we were treated extremely well and with care. We were brought to the front of the line for preboarding. Everyone used our name and smiled as they provided service."
Cons: "The TSA agent was cold and it took a supervisor to ensure our needs were met."
Cons: "Unable to access the internet. It was American flight, not Alaska flight"
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: "NA"
Pros: "Food voucher, small consolation for a missed dinner with family!"
Cons: "Delayed due to tire issue, deboarded and were told another plane would be there in 45 minutes, took 3 hours!!"
Pros: "In flight entertainment is good."
Cons: "Leg room is getting less and less. I’m 5’10” and couldn’t move my legs."
Pros: "Almost all parts were more than satisfactory as expected"
Cons: "Didn't enjoy nor appreciate the nearly 9 hour delay due to plane maintenance issues."
Pros: "The flight boarded on time and arrived early. Very comfortable new aircraft"
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: "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"
Pros: "The pilot and the crew were very apologetic and went out of their way to make us feel comfortable & relaxed."
Cons: "We were delayed due to weather."
