Service missing, for horrible and small portions
Pros: "Comfortable seats, new plane and friendly crew."
Cons: "Food needs to improve. Pasta versus pasta is not a choice."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Pros: "Everything was fairly mediocre..."
Cons: "They lost my ski bag! I had PLENTY of time between connecting flights and to not have my ski bag show up at my final destination (Munich - which was also a British Airways flight) was pretty bad. This set me back 4 hours after I've already been traveling for 20 hours! BOOO"
Pros: "Both the crew and the leg room are awesome!"
Pros: "Food was good. Intertainment options good."
Cons: "My seat did not recline so I had trouble trying to sleep thru the night flight. Seats too cramped even after updgrading."
Cons: "Long wait at the gate upon arrival at Heathrow."
Pros: "American Airlines is kicking your guy's butts when it comes to comfort."
Cons: "Tiny seat for international flights is nearly inhuman! I became an overnight contortionist sensation whether I liked it or not."
Pros: "Staff were lovely."
Cons: "Old plane with an ancient entertainment system, generally cramped and uncomfortable. Paid for a specific seat but was given a different one."
Pros: "The plane was newly refurbished. Entertainment was excellent. Seat room, or course, is an issue and comfort was a little above average for economy, but the operation was well-run, the food was descent, and entertainment was solid."
Cons: "The screens on the seatbacks could use shielding from oblique angles. If the people in front of you decide to binge-watch movies late into the night, it can interfere with sleep."
Pros: "Kind crew helping a frightened passenger"
Cons: "Terrible, frightening turbulence and illogical birding. Why not bore back of plane to front of plane?"
Pros: "Crew tried to be polite but some were really not"
Cons: "There was a very large group of teenagers that were very loud the entire flight and disrespectful to crew and other passengers"
Pros: "Food was good. Decent movie choices"
Cons: "Plane was older and in poor repair. Our air vents and over head lights had been completely removed for our row - so we could not read or knit as others could. Seats are far to small and close together to allow for any real rest or sleep."
Pros: "Food was great. Sleeper amazing- I was asleep for at least 4 hours"
Pros: "Easy flight sequence to get from Seattle to BCN"
Cons: "Could use better entertainment selection"
Pros: "Service was excellent, and the 777 flight was very comfortable. The flight attendants were remarkable. The ticket agents had difficulty rebooking the London to Milan leg of my flight when that flight was cancelled while I was on the way to the airport, but they were somehow able to get me onto an earlier flight than was originally offered. What I gathered was that the computer was not very cooperative. The ticket agents were incredibly helpful during this process."
Cons: "I lost my original exit row seat somehow and had to inquire into it. I think what happened was that while the ticket agents were able to rebook my cancelled London to Milan flight, my seat reservation on the Seattle to London leg got lost somehow. I suppose another passenger may have grabbed my seat during that rebooking process. I noticed the changed seat assignment only after I left the ticketing counter. I was able to get a different exit row seat (but with less leg room) assigned to me by inquiring with the agent at the gate."
Pros: "We liked that the food and drinks were included. The timing of food and lights going off and on were perfect."
Cons: "The take off was a little shaky but it was our first time on this size of plane, so that might be normal."
Pros: "The staff were wonderful within my two boys aged 6 and 7. There was really good room and the entertainment of Paddington 2 and then comedy shows was a great balance. Really enjoyed it."
Cons: "Only down side was the food, had to pay, quite expensive and didn’t really get ‘a meal’ as such."
Cons: "Luggage did not make it to Paris pit on next flight which in turn was also delayed."
Pros: "Let’s face it, B.A has proper service with friendly crew members, offered up grade to premium economy which I normally take and was more than happy to pay for."
Cons: "3 hours on the plain waiting for take off. Cheap sandwich for breakfast."
Pros: "It was comfortable, the staff were helpful and it was a pleasant flight."
Cons: "I am not tall enough to reach the overhead compartments to place my bag inside. Two passengers kindly helped me on the return flight. On my last trip with BA a 6ft steward told me off for not being able to lift my case over my head and place in the overhead compartment. He refused to help me with my bag he said he had a bad back and I swore I would never fly British Airways again and I wouldn't have if I had realised that my return flight was with them. However, this time was different it was a good flight but if passengers don't help lift my case in the overhead locker in future I have no idea what I will do. I never have this problem with other airlines."
Pros: "The flight attendants were all very nice. The flight was on time."
Cons: "I'm told (late) that BA does not subscribe to TSA prep in the USA. That meant going to the TSA line first, being rejected, going back to check-in to know the reason, then back to the standard long line. Once onboard my seat's entertainment system dies not work. 3 reset attempted with no luck. A month ago, on another long haul flight the same happened. Food was very bad. Salmon so overdone that it was hard to cut, overcooked vegetables and some lukewarm mash potatoes."
Cons: "I was not allowed to board, because I was told I needed a Turkish Visa, even to change planes, and may have lost my ticket payment."
Cons: "Food, artificial not tasty"
Pros: "Flight good."
Cons: "Your website didn’t tell us bags not included. Cost me an extra£200 at airport. More than poor. Who do I complain to?"
Cons: "I ended up being rerouted to LA!"
Pros: "Once the flight was boarding/ boarded it was seamless. The crew were more than happy to meet or exceed your needs with snacks/ meals, blankets and even drinks."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1hr and 50min and the supervisor was less than accommodating even after my wife and I had told her we had 2more connecting flights this was going to affect. Due to the delay, we spent an additional $211 on flights and spent the night at the airport."
Pros: "Smooth and uneventful flight on a 747 Staff looked very smart and were efficient"
Cons: "Check in queue, queue at gate, seat was not clean, food poor The World's favourite airline is becoming impersonal"
Pros: "more comfortable than the flight from Seattle - more leg room and larger seats."
Cons: "Booked 6 exit row seats only to have half of us moved. Somehow Cyprus is short haul? So no free soft drinks or food! The crew ran out of much of the menu."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Flight boarded late, left late, making my connection very tight and my baggage didn't arrive with me. Very inconvenient"
Pros: "Friendly, efficient crew, entertainment & flight info on monitor."
Cons: "Economy seating. Quite cramped.. I would make sure to book at least Premium Economy in the future."
Cons: "Food was unappetizing and down to one choice by the time it got to us in Premium Economy. nothing premium about it."
Pros: "Seattle to London was wonderful in all aspects great service comfort and amenities."
Pros: "Got me back to the UK"
Cons: "Lack of storage around seat Lack of privacy Felt like a patient on a trolley Heavy handed portion control Club larder stocked with leftovers Poor quality tableware, that was chipped"
Pros: "Great meal service and goodies. Great entertainment, service. I think BA is the best airline to fly"
Cons: "I liked everything!"
Pros: "TV screen."
Pros: "The flight was great."
Cons: "London/Heathrow arrivals had us going to gate A and through all the security and then we found after going through the security check (1 hr) we saw that the gate for Flight to Venice was B gates. We are not young people, but we aren't ignorant of travel. There was a lot of running around on our part with a lot of undue stress, when we didn't have to leave the E gates at all. There were no gate assignments posted when we landed until 30 minutes out while we were running back to E gates. There is no excuse for that, except we didn't know til the last minute where we were supposed to go after asking 2 people. Why the second check for security after the states on connecting flights? Is this new?"
Pros: "Crew was polite and professional, despite plane being absolutely packed."
Cons: "Food was really horrendous. Better off sticking with basics like frit, cheese, crackers, sandwiches, etc. If I pay extra for early seat selection, don't guilt me into switching with someone who didnt, because they didnt have enough leg room and had a bad leg. Situation was such that I couldnt refuse. So ended up paying extra for a really crappy seat. Seating chart should indicate where the metal boxes are that affect leg room in certain seats so those with a disability aren't seated there."
Cons: "After a three hour delay- the flight was canceled. Was able to rebook flight for next day but took eight calls to find a room for the night. It was a bit of a nightmare. Had pre paid for up graded seat but one was not available on the re-booked flight."
Pros: "We got to our destination eventually"
Cons: "Lack of communication. No explanations. Feelings of confusion and abandonment."
Cons: "No entertainment. Few passengers were standing in the middle of the isle having a loud conversation. We had an overnight flight from us so we wanted to rest. Asked the flight attendand if it is ok for passengers to have a party like this. He told me off. He said "if you have a problem you tell them". I asked if it is a safety issue standing on the corridor like so. He told me, "I am fine with it"
Pros: "Almost nothing but I was comfortable"
Cons: "There was one crew member that spoiled The lot. When I had trouble with my bag fitting she wa no help. She in kinder words told me to figure it out. When I asked if there was a way to check it at the jet bridge she replied that I should have done it out there. To which I replied that they should have told me there was limited room. Needless to say I had to figure it out without any help from any crew. Which was crazy to me because on other flights I had more than one person taking my bag for me or trying it other places. Later the same woman was loudly accused of skipping a row of a dad trying to wrangle his children. When he confronted her she addresses him sharply and made him wait to get food though he had two young children with him. I'm sure skipping a row is easy to do especially if there is a lot Of activity but it didn't stop there another crew member began to bash the man while they were continuing to pass out food in front of other passengers and she did not stop him. I understand wanting your fellow crew members to know you are with them but it is completely unprofessional to do it in front of other passengers and needs to be saved for "closed" quarters. Worst and most unprofessional portion of my trip."
Pros: "The stewards and stewardesses treated everyone as the were sitting in the First Class section."
Cons: "The area near the top edge of wall in front of me needs cleaning."
Pros: "Crew and choice of movies were excellent"
Cons: "Loading sucked. They couldn't keep those that are not boarding yet out of the way for those in the back of the plane to board first. Made one comment to the crowd and then gave up."
Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent, good food. Nice blankets and pillows, crew allowed 'quiet time' for sleep with no disturbing announcements. At the end of the flight, after people were getting off, they let my airplane-loving son and I look at the 'upper deck' of the 747 and my son got to sit in the captain's chair for a photo."
Cons: "Seats were cramped, no USB or power sockets, older seat-back entertainment screens"
The plane is old and really small. Crew was great
Cons: "It sure what could have been better other than all bulkhead seats are terrible for taller people."
Pros: "I was able to return home after my flight had been cancelled."
Cons: "While rebooking my flight from Phoenix the rebooking agent been yelling at me to pull my mask back after I was trying to answer her questions while trying talk over all the other customers. I feel that it was unnecessary and over done."
Cons: "I was in the only full row on the plane. The flight attendant waited until we couldn’t move to offer us to move to empty rows. By the time we were able to move, the other people in the row were sleeping. I wanted to stretch but couldn’t. Not a great way to start 2021."
Cons: "When I arrived to check in at 5:48am for my 6:20am flight, I was treated very poorly. The lady at the counter asked me what time my flight was and I said 6:20 and right off the bat she was extremely rude and said that I missed the flight. I panicked internally and asked her how that was possible?! She said the cutoff was at 5:45am and I missed it. I asked if there were other flights available today or tomorrow and she said there was nothing she could do and that I had to call the booking company to see if they could book me. I wanted to cry because my friend had just dropped me off and I called to see if she was close enough to turn back. Luckily she hadn’t left yet. I called the booking company and they were able to book me a trip for the following day but they charged me an additional $100. I wish they had disclosed that we need to be there 45 minutes to an hour early otherwise you miss your flight. And it’s ridiculous that I had to pay an extra $100... financially it was stressful due to the covid 19 situation. I was extremely disappointed in how the lady at the check in counter at American Airlines treated me. She www extremely rude and I have never been spoken to in a way that made me feel attacked."
Pros: "The staff at seatac airport were condescending and not helpful...traveling with a service dog and made to pay the pet fee and talked about me where I can over hearnthen in a manner that embarassed me"
Cons: "A little discouraged that AA doesn’t offer a TV in the headrest for 1st class customers"
Pros: "Absolutely positively nothing."
Cons: "Everything literally!! Plane down for maintenance, rebooked four times and not willing to spend 48 hours in an airport due to incompetence. Never flying American Airlines. Will use Delta from now on."
Pros: "Crews are fantastic. Just only assigning seat u need to buy so that you seat besides of your companion."
Cons: "If the travelers has 2 to 3 more companion let them seat together."
Pros: "Good crew, appeared to work we’ll together."
Cons: "Could not figure out how to plug in ac for charging devices. Should have some educational label somewhere on that."
Pros: "Crew was efficient and pleasant making for a good experience."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable. Did not cramp anywhere entire flight. Great air vent control."
Cons: "Boarding was weird. Many Passengers in the last rows put their bags up by row 20 so that made boarding and disembarking slower and harder as we had to go forward extra rows to use the back empty bins and then fight against traffic to get back to our seats. Passing bags up when leaving or waiting to"
Pros: "The internet and movies"
Cons: "The AC was not turned up it was very hot and even after I asked nothing was done."
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Seats were comfo"
Pros: "Seats in first class were comfortable. It was nice to get a cocktail right away."
Cons: "A real snack would have been nice after boarding"
Pros: "Attentive crew. Traveling with 2 seniors in their 80’s. Thank you."
Cons: "Nothing. Perfect."
Pros: "Great crew. Falafel meal was delish."
Cons: "My seat was broken and didn’t recline. I booked first class bc of a bad back, so I count on that. Salad was wilted and gross. Plane didn’t have plug ins for phone! Entertainment system didn’t work well- movie kept buffering. Sky texting wouldn’t work either."
Pros: "The trip went as scheduled and arrived on time. The service was good making it a pleasant experience overall."
Cons: "As with most airlines, the seating is cramped."
Cons: "Missed the flight"
Pros: "One of the few non-stop flights between Seattle and Philadelphia. Timing is perfect if you can sleep on a red-eye flight. Fairly empty flight. enough empty seats to move and stretch out."
Cons: "No entertainment center built-in to the seats. On board WiFi can be used to access movies and other entertainment on the your own device but make sure your battery is charged and you have an external battery also since the seats don't have power. I tried to sleep but it is not easy for me to fall sleep when the seat back reclines only 3 inches so I didn't have luck taking a nap. Conclusion: I am not taking this flight any more. I will go back to taking will switch back to flying Delta even though there are no direct flights."
Pros: "They were rude and disrespectful."
Cons: "They were rude and disrespectful."
Pros: "Even though looked like I had selected a seat assignment they were not booked. On first leg of trip had to wait until a couple agreed to be bought off their seats before we could be boarded. Very misleading."
Cons: "Boarding could be improved if they would start boarding from the back of the plane to the front after boarding 1st class and Priority this way people would not block the passage when putting their luggage in the top compartments. The crew was not very helpful because I almost went into a hypothermia condition because the air in the cabin was extremely cold. When I ask for a blanket one of the stewardesses said that AA would no longer have blankets in flight which I prove it wrong when I saw in the flight Mai-SDQ blanquets all over the cabin. The soliton they gave me was that they would ask the crew to raise the temp in the cabin, I had to make the request three times and I had to tell the stewardess that if not raising the temperature in the cabin I could have gone into an emergency hypothermia crisis. I had to take another shirt from my carry-on to put it over my shirt to warm me up."
Cons: "Flights had to be changed due to a delay on first flight that would make it impossible to take the connecting flight. My route and airlines were completely changed, which caused a big delay in original arrival time. In addition to that, my luggage did not make it and I'm still waiting to find out where my suitcases are. Very disappointed."
Pros: "On time and the staff was great"
Cons: "I didn’t take my outbound so they cancelled my return flight without notifying me. I had to pay $200 to buy my seat back. American is about as bad as spirit.."
Pros: "For this flight I was seated in first class (I scheduled it this way; it wasn't due to a last minute upgrade) and the flight attendant was very personable and attentive :-) Service was wonderful and the meal was great! Of course, the flight attendant made sure to keep our beverages topped off as needed. It was a wonderful experience"
Cons: "The boarding process for just about any airline is nearly identical. It always seems like it takes longer to board than expected even if, in reality, it's not an unreasonable amount of time. The only think I didn't care for was that overhead storage in the area I was sitting was just about full by the time I was seated which meant that I had to store my carry on a few rows behind where I sat. This meant that during off-boarding I needed to go against the flow of people to get back to my carry on. All in all, it was a minor inconvenience."
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: "The one flight attendant that realized how shitty of a situation they placed me in."
Cons: "American Airlines made me take all clothes out of carry-on, took my brand new AWAY bags, and made me stuff my clothes and other belongings into 5 plastic bags. All because they said my bag was illegal to fly on plane (whether it was checked in or not). Turns out they didn’t have to do that. What a crock."
Cons: "For the planes first flight of the day the crew deicing process caused a 75 minute delay. On return flight at 10:15 pmwe waited on the runway for over 30 minutes because the ground crew wasn’t ready. There were no other planes in or out anytime near our landing"
Pros: "seats comfy, seemed like a newer plane, crew was lovely."
Cons: "usual complaints about domestic flights - not having free headphones and not having free snacks."
Pros: "The flights were good. The cancellation was handled poorly."
Cons: "AA’s flight was canceled from Seattle to JFK. The flight was then rescheduled to Newark and then Orly. The main problem is that the change didn’t include the infant on lap ticket and ended up with 2 hours in Newark trying to rectify the situation."
Cons: "Luggage allowance policy was not clear, so that they can try to charge passengers extra fee. Airline blames on one another when it comes to connecting flight if we purchased a one stop flight"
Pros: "Boarding was okay, flight was on time departing and arriving."
Cons: "No USB chargers in the seats for SEA-MIA segment of trip, but they had it for short hour flight from MIA-SJU? Long haul flights need the USB outlets!!"
Pros: "It was on time. Flight crew did a very good job and were very nice. The Meal was excellent as was the coffee. Overall, service was excellent."
Cons: "First Class needs a total redo as the seats were not as nice as on newer planes. Rest room in First Class is way too small and cramped. WiFi did not work well, and there were no individual screens on the backs of the seats. The First Class on this plane was really bad and needs some rethinking by American."
Pros: "I would like if for my return from Paris to Chicago, Chicago Seattle I would be greeted by the personal and offered to flight first class without extra charge to compensate for the bad experience on my way going in. Thank you"
Cons: "I was told I would be able to choose the seats only 24 hours before the flight by going online. I tried to choose the seats online but could not have access to the site. I then called the number provided to ask for more help, and was told that I could then only choose the seats at the check in time. I was at the airport 2 hours before the flight schedule to book my seat and was told them that I could only choose the seats at the gate. Once I got at the gate I asked the person to please give me a seat at the aisle for medical reasons but after waiting until the boarding process had started I was giving a middle seat. Not only I was treated as a stand by passenger that had not purchased the tickets I was put nt on group 8 and at the moment of boarding the gate personal aggressively grabbed my carry-on bag because they insisted there was no more spaces in the compartment above heads. Once I got inside of airplane I saw many empty compartments available for carry-on luggage. I wish I had not purchased my ticket with Iberia Airlines operated by American Airlines. It was not a good, pleasant experience and do not recommend. I wil certainly avoid in the future and not travel this way another time. Thanks"
Cons: "I really can't believe that this flight didn't have in headrest screens or USB power to keep you devices charged. This was a 6 hour flight across the US. If they don't provide entertainment, at least let the people charge their devices."
Pros: "Crew was great, boarding went well, smooth flight."
Cons: "On a 5+ hour flight, they only served soft drinks and a small biscotti. What happened to an actual meal??"
Pros: "This airlines sucksI didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip"
Cons: "I didn't really like much of anything about the entire trip. Mainly, there was absolutely no entertainment except some overhead movie that no one wanted to watch. The plane was old and comfortable."
Pros: "Food was good, crew was friendly, cordial which is not good at all on flights by United Airlines, Delta American Airlines and Air Canada. Flight from Miami-Sao Paulo was nice and no too long as when I fly through Toronto by Air Canada or through Chicago by USA airlines."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight in the middle of the night and rebooked for 3 hours later really strapping me for time at my destination"
Cons: "We were told the overhead was full, so we had to check our bags, but once we boarded there were complete compartments empty. I suspect they were just trying to depart earlier."
Pros: "Customer Service at SEA was great. we were checking bags directly to Madrid and they were very helpful"
Cons: "I had paid for a Bulk head seat Row 7. But since we had a in Cabin pet, my wife was moved down to Row 18 and a much smaller seat. I need to get a refund for the price I paid."
Cons: "Gate agent said there was a maintenance problem that just needed maintenance to sign off. Over heard maintenance work while boarding that could not get message on computer of problem. Pushed back and sat on tarmac for 10-20 minutes as pilot said they worked through maintenance issue."
Pros: "The employee working the desk in Seattle was great. Long lines to check in and she took the time to assign us seats next to each other. Loved the bonus of the seats being in an exit row."
Cons: "Flight changed with no notification."
Cons: "Your plane needs outlets to charge electronics. Unless your gonna show movies on your flights, ppl need a way to entertain themselves for the flight. If they burn through all their battery power, it's an inconvenience to try to charge it in the airport when they land. All of the outlet Chargers in Chicago, Seattle and Philly were broke as well. The U tied wing was amazing. Your prices are great but to keep ppl from rather paying more just for one or two more luxuries, try fixing this."
Pros: "Very efficient boarding, comfortable coach seats, good crew"
Cons: "No food! except pretzels and sandwiches for purchase. I didn't purchase a sandwich but the two guys next to me did and were both vocal about their disappointment with what they received for $9. And they were strangers who didn't talk to each other the rest of the time, so I think they meant it. Also, entertainment: they had a movie on the pop-down screens, and 4 free movies to stream to your device using onboard wifi, as well as 2 tv shows. So maybe I'm being harsh. But it was a transcontinental flight and they didn't have headrest screens loaded with movies. Is this only for international flights? The movies were bad, or at least not appealing to me ('Keanu' and 'Zoolander 2'). It was possible to pay for additional movies, but who wants to do that? It was sort of the EasyJet model, where you get good basic service but pay for everything additional that one gets for free on Delta. Maybe that was reflected in the price I paid for the ticket, but I was expecting that AA would be in the same league as United and Delta. One nice perk: free wifi for T-Mobile customers, including me."
Cons: "My flight was changed 3 times-- always pick a window seat and was changed to aisle seat. The attitude at the ticket counter was "you're lucky to get any seat", flight was overbooked, the boarding process and deplaning were absurd with all the people bringing on way too much carry on luggage !!! It takes almost 30 min to get off the plane!!"
Pros: "My window seat"
Cons: "I wasn't able to check in to my flight 24 hours prior to my flight on my AA app and or website. Also wasn't able to check in at kiosk at airport therefore had to wait in line to check in with a clerk which slowed my whole trip mood down."
Pros: "They switched my flight promptly when I missed my connection."
Cons: "I missed my connection for no apparent reasons. When asked for compensation they said there was nothing they could do and cited reasons Regarding the boarding and deboarding of a special needs passenger."
