Cons: "Boarding from rear to front."
Pros: "Customer service as always"
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "I needed extra space because of my pregnancy, but didn't realize I couldn't upgrade my seat online or at check in. I was advised to tell the Boarding attendants I needed extra space and they promptly changed my seat and let me preboard. I'm so grateful and I had a wonderful flight back home. I was also very sick, so it was a relief knowing I could rest comfortably before arriving home to my children."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "Filthy plane, and delayed too long"
Cons: "Cramped seats, no a/c on tarmac for extended period because of technical issue, ancient entertainment system. Old plane with minimal overhead bin space, delayed flight"
Cons: "Multiple delays made us miss 4th July celebrations"
Pros: "Yes, . Amazing crew Seat was comfortable."
Pros: "Fast and efficient"
Pros: "The gate agent in Medford for delta was awesome"
Pros: "I thought the boarding process was somewhat messy and should have started sooner."
Cons: "The sound and touchpad on my entertainment console didn’t work too well during the flight."
Pros: "We landed 45 minutes ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Boarding was rushed and we left the gate late."
Cons: "Late arrival"
Cons: "Boarding was a little confusing with seats not being assigned ahead of time"
Pros: "Cabin crew super helpful & friendly. The food was great - all snacks & meals were well prepared and had great flavor, I’m not saying it’s a 5 star restaurant, but I was wasn’t expecting the quality we received. Great job! Impressed by Delta service."
Cons: "Traveling is always a challenge - abundance of patience required! We traveled from Dallas, Atlanta, Amsterdam, to Rome & back. Every country had a little different process for boarding and getting around - most had friendly staff, on point, helping clueless, stressed, & frustrated travelers. I was really disappointed in Atlanta, not a very welcoming or helpful spirit for visitors to US - not all (80% were awesome), mainly those trying to greet and direct through customs. Most hate the arrogant America anyway, don’t make it worse - put your best people on the front lines to help with international relations & show why the US is the best. Put those that don’t want to be here loading bags out back! Sorry for the lecture, but this is any business!"
Cons: "The comfort seats are not that comfortable"
Pros: "Having three seats."
Cons: "I had three seats to myself! After getting elbowed all the way from Amsterdam to Minneapolis, I was tired and I slept three good hours."
Pros: "View"
Cons: "Delay after landing"
Pros: "Food and entertainment not applicable"
Cons: "Seats very tight!"
Pros: "Crew was good, plane was clean. We left on time and got in a bit early."
Cons: "Don't like the Comfort plus seats that have the dividers vs basic arm rests. TSA is a JOKE, got the random strip search where they pulled apart every nook and cranny of my personal bag and carry on item. Relieved me of my PLASTIC corkscrew that I've traveled with for 15 years. Almost missed the flight and I was there plenty early."
Pros: "I was given an upgrade to a exit row seat so I could stretch out which nice since this was a connection from Sydney so I’d been flying for 14 hours already. The entertainment was excellent and the inflight messaging was wonderful. The staff was friendly and helpful. And the biscoff cookies are amazing."
Cons: "The seats need a cushion."
Pros: "Boarding was on time and the process was efficient."
Cons: "The flight attendant could not serve coffee or tea due to "no potable water" onboard! The electric outlets at each of our first class seats were not functional, both the USB ports and the electric plugs did not work so we were not able to charge our phones during the flight. When I mentioned this to the flight attendant her response was that she had not received a report that the electric was not working. No other assistance was offered. There was very little legroom even though these were sold as first class seats. The plane was old and dirty, the armrests were sticky."
Pros: "Nothing.. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral."
Cons: "Everyrhing. the entire experience was horrible. Nasty seat. Had to get rebooked 3 times to finally get home but had to fly into a different airport and you also lost my bag so I have nothing to wear to my father's funeral"

Pros: "Great airline stewards"

Cons: "My screen seat miniature work but headphone jack was messed up tried two cords and not working so could see movie could not hear so for 5hrs that’s what I did which made me focus more on comfort. Plane interior was or looked brand new."
Pros: "The movies were great and the boarding was more streamlined.the plane was clean and in good condition."
Cons: "The seats are getting smaller and more cramped. There still better then American but ugh. Delta's is stingy with their snacks unlike Southwest gives you two or three without even asking you have to beg for two from Delta and they act like it's breaking rules"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Due to a family illness i was not able to make the 1st leg of my roundtrip flight to Santa Ana. Not only was i forced to buy a brand new flight to get out to Orange County, i was charged $150 JUST to be able to keep the 2nd leg of my trip, which i'd already paid for. It's the 2nd Time Delta has done this to me in the space of 2 weeks and it's absolute Idiocy. Gouging you loyal customers like this is NOT how you do business."
Pros: "Again, a quick and easy connector and flight homeward."
Cons: "Not applicable."
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "The flight was very rough on landing"
Pros: "anaheim"
Cons: "luggage did not arrive same time with me and not the same airport"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I was not able to change seats..."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Pros: "4 hour flight. Non-eventful except slight turbulence. Good to be home! Thank you!"
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "Yet one more trip that reminds me why I refuse to fly any other airline than Delta. (I fly every week for work.) Top-rate LA crew, flights always departs on time, early to destination more than half the time. Comfortable seats, upgraded to Delta Comfort today. Gate agent was friendly, helpful and joking with passengers. Made it seem like we were all going on an adventure. Kudos to Delta all around!!"
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so the service was very good lots of food and snacks and we arrived early too"
Cons: "Music was a. Bit limited"
Cons: "Condition of the airplane"
Pros: "Being able to watch a movie on the plane"
Cons: "Packed..."
Pros: "Snacks were readily available; gate and flight attendants were friendly and accomodating."
Cons: "Free in-flight entertainment required an app to play, need for which was not advertised at all. Flight on United earlier in the month included announcements to download their app before takeoff. Customer service ahead of flight was a mixed bag. One assistant was went out of her way to help quickly and then comped a fee after I waited ~30 mins and then explained why we'd need assistance at the gate that she could not provide. A previous assistant was not able to provide this explanation."
Pros: "They forgot the CC reader so drinks were free. The free GoGo media is cool."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and rescheduled 3 times. Delayed. Tiny plane = uncomfortable and turbulent."
Cons: "Why can't all the Delta gates be near each other. My connecting flight was very far."
Pros: "With the free entertainment, the time just flew by. From the time we left MSP to the time we landed, everything went smoothly"
Pros: "It was as fast!!"
Cons: "Nothing was offered, my bag was checked at the door but no big deal"
Pros: "Overall great experience"
Pros: "Getting updates on the phone allowed me to stay put and work instead of running back and forth to the gate."
Cons: "Flight was supposed to get in at 10 pm and we did npt end up getting in until 2am"

I missed my flight waiting for PCR results. I was hoping that a circumstantial accommodation could be made to help me get into the flight, as I was trying to get to the gate a little over an hour before the flight was scheduled to take off, but I wasn’t allowed. I do understand it’s atypical, but it could’ve been possible for someone to help me get to the gate with a little over 30 minutes to spare…not easy, but not impossible.

Pros: "Nothing!!!!"
Cons: "Not to mention Copa owes me $1000 they stole from me after canceling a flight and not giving the money back, they took our water we bought 10 feet from boarding in the airport and had one offer of a small cup of water on a 7 hour flight. Pathetic service, not, cramped planes. I will not fly with them again!"
Pros: "I really loved the seat and the many different positions to make the flight comfortable. I also loved the plane overall. I felt less turbulence"
Pros: "Good service. Kind personnel."
Cons: "No entertainment onboard"
Cons: "Ticket agents were friendly knowledgeable and helpful"
Pros: "The crew was kind. Movies were available, as well as a charging port for phones."
Cons: "We were prohibited from bringing water onto the airplane. However, this didn't seam to apply to all water bottles. My empty plastic water bottle had to be discarded, however, my friend's 32oz metal water bottle with water in it was allowed on the plane. She was able to get her water bottle filled during the flight, but my water bottle was tossed by the staff prior to the flight. How does this make sense? This was a 7 hour flight during which only 3 times were we given a small cup of water. That is crazy! Airplanes make you feel so dehydrated, and three small cups of water is not enough for 7 hours, that is absurd. Please, just like all other airlines and flights, allow people to purchase or fill their water bottles (regardless of the material of the bottle) prior to the flight so that they can remain comfortable."
Pros: "Crew was great, boarding was relatively easy and smooth. Seemed to be enough overhead storage."
Cons: "Seats are super small, as are meals. 2 bathrooms for 100 passengers. If you have an older aerobus be prepared for shared screens and tops 1 movie in a 4.5hr flight. Could use more beverages."
Pros: "The crew had an attitude problem."
Cons: "Copa, lost my luggage."
Pros: "Onntime and very goid service"
Cons: "Panamá boarding room"
Pros: "In time, friendly crew."

Pros: "Realmente contento con el servicio del crew de Copa.recomiendo"
Cons: "Recomiendo usar Copa para todos los viajes hacia sur America......gracias."
Cons: "The problem was some other travelers. A family traveling with 2 one of them a toddler. The family arbitrarily changed there own seats which created problems when the rightful passengers arrived. The toddler was unusually fussy and cried a lot. Not COPA's fault but bothersome non the less."
Pros: "I was in need of a wheelchair, but seems like nobody cares. I could not go to the restroom, because the disorganization of the wheelchairs transportation. Almost lost my connection!"
Cons: "They need to be more organized and be more efficient with our disable necessities."
Pros: "Getting off"
Cons: "The crew should be bilingual, not leaving an hour late and avoiding being the 6th plane to take off"

Pros: "Very good ride,thank you.Good attention from staff"
Pros: "Let me think..."
Cons: "I called Copa Airlines and the person on the phone told me they had NO online checkin. She told me I had to drive to the airport (SFO - 60 minutes from my home) to check in!!! Poor information. Bad food. Smells awful, cheap. Poor wine. Don't serve anything rather than bad food. They seem rather disorganized. Captain and copilot were okay. They landed the plane."
Pros: "Quito check was best ever. Got an exit isle."
Cons: "Food was weak."
Pros: "The crew in business class was very good and attentive. The meal was very good; I enjoyed the wine served. The hot towel and the warm snack provided was a nice touch. The seat was comfortable."

Pros: "got me out of South America!"
Cons: "everything was good"
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive."
Cons: "The seats are terrible! On a long flight (5+ hours), I would expect lay-flat seats. These seats just reclined and had an elevated footrest. Not very adjustable. I probably would have been just as uncomfortable in coach."
Pros: "The flight have left on time and arrived on time"
Pros: "No stops"
Cons: "Food and that they didnt project any videos or offer airplugs to listen to music"
Pros: "Smooth flight. Extremely friendly crew."
Cons: "No complaints. Great service."
Cons: "My seat would not recline and when I mentioned this to the flight attendant, she said it was because it was an aisle seat. Safety was her reason. Other aisle seats I have had did recline. The result, was back pain. I have repeatedly tried to have my last two trips to Chile and Colombia register frequent flyer miles on Copa. I was not able to figuire out how to do this on the web site. When I asked for help at the Copa counter, I was told it can only be done on the web site. Fortunate, my recent trip to and from Ecuador did register frequent flyer miles."
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "It had one movie and one show for the whole plane."
Cons: "Entire row was skipped over for food service"
Pros: "Overall good safe trip"
Cons: "Long trip"
Pros: "I got the lowest price for the dates I wanted with Copa, 2 checked bags, short layovers, and full meals on almost every leg. We had in flight entertainment, a very friendly, welcoming and attentive bilingual crew on all legs, and... basically everything I would want in a flight. My 84 year old grandmother who flies almost yearly said this was one of her best airline experiences"
Pros: "comfortable seats with good leg room, very good food provided."
Pros: "I liked the quick processing, food, and entertainment"
Cons: "My Luggage was lost and sent to Medellin, Colombia, when u arrived to Quito, Ecuador."
Cons: "They took me to another city, Copa was suppose to pay for my transportation to my final destination and I have to pay 200 dollars from my pocket, traveling almost 24 hours"
Cons: "No organization and you should not sell more tickets than you can in an air plain. Just one persone attending the counters."
Pros: "The personal was constantly there to help you out with anything. Some of them could not be so serious all the time."
Cons: "There wasn't any type of entertainment, the magazine onboard could have a crosswords puzzles, sudoku, or any other type of game. One of the male flight attendant hit me while going thru the cabin and didn't apologize, in fact he didn't turn around to say sorry."
Pros: "They gave food."
Pros: "Customer service for COPA was marvelous. They even made sure our niece flying in from Texas sat with us and the boarding pass and luggage area were super people."
Pros: "The attention at the cointer ii was good."
Cons: "It needs to be more careful in checking the laggers when there are 2 passengers. My laggers were registed with my friend name and hers with my name. And my lagged was pick to be check but it has my friend's mane. So she went down for the chequing no problem,but be careful in the future"
Pros: "Everything regarding the flight was perfectly fine, apart from the food. I really liked being able to choose my seat."
Cons: "The food made me a little ill, although it tasted okay."
Pros: "Overnight flight, they don't think of giving you an bite to eat? Really? Also since it's a flight operated by united make sure you download their app before hand or brace yourself for a boring, entertainment free flight"

We didn't have right seat.. No kosher food

Pros: "Drinks served on flight. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Food."
Pros: "Love Lufthansa"
Pros: "Safety of aircraft"
Cons: "Parents called as soon as the delayed flight caused the young teen to miss her flight, Lufthansa operator verifies only by phone that young teen had a seat in the next flight, UNTRUE! She was ignored at counter, mr. M. Meindle told her to step aside and it was not “worth arguing”! The people she sought direction from, are the ones that left her confused and ignored. Shame on them"
Pros: "Excellent service, friendly crew, economy seat was ok even if I’m 6’ 1”"
Cons: "Food was not very good, inflight headset available but very, very low quality for such a noisy environment and their own headset plug would not match the plug type of the entertainment center!"
Cons: "Lufthansa’s needs to get their staffing act together. It took 1 1/4 hrs to check in due to insufficient staff & then once on board the flight it was announced there was no food available due to staffing shortages"
Pros: "Super easy boarding, just scan your ticket and go. Staff was very friendly. On our short flight from Munich to Rome we were served a complimentary sandwich and option of beer, wine or other refreshments. There was plenty of leg room compared to our other recent flights"
Cons: "There was no in flight entertainment. Not that was really needed it with such a short flight."

Cons: "Food has to be better"
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight"
Cons: "Crew was not necessarily warm or curteous"
Pros: "Despite the short flight we were still given food and as always I love airline food. Free alcohol is always a bonus as well! Nice crew and timely take offs and landings. Could bring two hand luggage (backpack and suitcase) which I like even though I didn't have to pay extra!"
Cons: "No negatives."
Pros: "Lufrhansa is a fantastic airline"
Cons: "The seat pitch and width were too small."
Pros: "The airline crew was responsive and professional. The flight was also very smooth."

Cons: "Online check-in did not work. When I checked in at the airport, I received only a middle seat."
Pros: "Staff was very responsive and quick to disperse food and beverages."
Cons: "I didn't care for the breakfast. The eggs tasted like the chicken and rice from the meal for dinner."
Cons: "No entertainment on this flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed getting out and when we landed we were stuck on the tarmac for an hour so our connecting flight was missed. The person at the Lufthansa desk left at EWR so there was no one to talk to about vouchers for our cancelled flight. Also I never received an email update about my upgrade request contrary to the email I received saying that I would get an update. I would not fly again on Lufthansa."
Pros: "Excellent service as you would expect from Lufthansa. Seating comfortable as well."
Cons: "No ice cream - they have switched to pizza or hot dog before you land."
Pros: "Boarding was made seamless. Seating legroom always seems to be better then others I have flown with. Food seems to be better too. The flight crew is very friendly!"
Pros: "Everything was great overall. Flight wasn’t full, so I had some nice extra space for the long flight."
Cons: "Sat on the tarmac for two hours before take-off due to snow and ice. The flight itself was fine. Deplaning in Shanghai sucks. Economy class had to wait inside the plane while business class was let out and shuttled first because the plane parked out away from building and we had to walk down steep stairs and then ride a shuttle bus to the building."
Cons: "Just a shirt flight, no problems"
Pros: "Went smoothly and without delays"

Cons: "Passports had to be checked and it delayed boarding. Everyone was frustrated"
Cons: "Unable to make the flight due to connecting flight being cancelled."
Cons: "Missed my flight because the baggage check in closed, but what bothered me was that the attendant did not give any solutions or help, just coldly said “you can’t get on because you can’t check in your bag” and continued to tell me that I should just throw my luggage and all my things away to at least check in and get my body on the plane. I felt like I had to coerce her for help or advice on what I should do with my situation and she didn’t really give me any beneficial help until right before my gate closed and my plane departed. As customer service, shouldn’t they offer help without having the customer feel like they need to convince the check in attendant to give them alternate solutions?"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew made meangry"
Cons: "The air host is rude bcos we are black. He needs training on how to be nicer. He is a racist."
Pros: "Crew was very courteous and efficient"
Cons: "Seats were too small. I noticed my neighbor was a fat big woman and she was occupying part of my seat and arm rests so I couldn't move because she was almost on top of me. It was a very unconfortable journey."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and crew super friendly"
Cons: "Choice of food and entertainment could have been better"
Pros: "Service was friendly and attentive"
Cons: "To italy united by Lufthansa had great Netflix shows, movies and better interface. This flight to Chicago was Germany based, so I understand the international choices, but there was very little to watch in the movie, tv and show categories. Otherwise all great!"
Pros: "The aircraft, an A320 was stable but cramped and entertainment depended on prior download of the Lufthansa app. Crew was very efficient and professional."
Cons: "Cramped. Seat did not recline AT ALL and very hard. No entertainment unless you downloaded the app beforehand."
Pros: "Quick and professional"
Cons: "-"
Pros: "Boarding was smooth."
Cons: "Flight was delayed then we were told it would leave at 4 but then they boarded at 230 then we sat on the plane for 3 hours after already being delayed we stayed on the plane when they knew that we wouldn't be taking off for hours but they didn't income us of this"
Pros: "The flight attendants were very kind and attentive. Our flight was delayed twice, once in Frankfurt for late luggage and the ground crew left without pushing back the plane, then again in Seattle for a plane on the tarmac on fire. A 10 hour flight turned into 14 hours but I still enjoyed it. There was plenty of leg room and the seats were very comfortable. The entertainment was very enjoyable and the meals were satisfying. For such a long haul Lufthansa made the time flyby."
Cons: "The crying baby a couple rows back. Also some smelly passengers that have poor hygiene."
Pros: "on time departure"
Cons: "seats from Kiev to Munich were terribly uncomfortable. Food is very bad. After what the luftansa pilots i will never fly Lufthansa ever again. Our outgoing flight was a nightmare and destroyed our short vacation"
Cons: "Lufthansa cancelled our return flight from Rome two days ahead of departure. Spent the whole day trying to contact them by calling from Rome on American phone which ended up costing over $100, eight times the.l hold was over an hour after which Lufthansa just hanged up. Here is German "reliability, responsibility, and organization" in action!"
Pros: "I would like a direct flight from Krakow to Chicago. Lufthansa is a very good airline to Poland. Would definitely fly Lufthansa again."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Food was tasteless"
Pros: "I was really surprise that the coach seats were comfortable and had plenty of space. Flight was on time and it was easy to check in luggage. I truly enjoyed my 12 hour flight. I will be booking my international flight with Lufthansa again."
Cons: "The on plane entertainment wasn't up to par. Not a lot of selection for sitcoms, if they had a sitcom it was only 1 episode. 12 hour flight I didn't have much to watch after the first 6 hours. Food was ok."
Pros: "Everything was efficient and the somewhat long flight was easy because of food and entertainment. (Saw a really good Japanese film with subtitles)"
Cons: "Incorrect gate given for this flight, connecting flight was a little late. Everything was fairly quickly corrected."
Pros: "Plenty of food & beverages. Loved the free movies!"
Cons: "My video player did not work properly for the whole 11.5hrs of flight from Munich to LA. It was extremely tough to get it to play a movie. I am not blaming the crew, but their only suggestion was to restart it... Which I did... several times... but the player had a life of its own. Eventually I found a way to be able to get to a movie and get it to play, but it was not easy. I wish that there would be an extra player that could be provided as a replacement... Thank you."
Pros: "The service was great. Attendants were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seats in Business class could be more comfortable. The padding in the seats was very hard"
Pros: "On time and smooth"
Pros: "Everything went fine."
Cons: "n/a"
Pros: "I was especially please with the service from the crew. The cognac was wonderful and "reasonably" poured. The food was fantastic"
Cons: "There was nothing to dislike..."
Cons: "Crew could have reprimanded people not wearing their masks or not covering their noses. The airline could have kept middle seats open to instill more confidence in flying."
Cons: "I was in Business Class. The pillow appeared to be used on the flight from London to Antigua so i threw it on the floor in front of me. You would think with coronavirus it would be sealed like on American Airlines. No sandwiches or anything except some nuts and a small diet coke. I had to ask for a second one. It appears they only care about the people from London. Deplaning was from the middle door and it was a free for all. They have no idea about service well at least not in this leg."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Very old entertainment system"
Pros: "Smooth boarding process"
Cons: "Surprise that British Airways does not have internet access on its transatlantic jets. Delta and Swiss air both had the last time I flew them."
Pros: "The crew was excellent. However the business class seats were terrible. You had to step over a sleeping customer to get out of the seat. There was no place to put anything other than a distant little drawer under the TV. The food choices were the same old chicken and pasta."
Cons: "Food selection"
Pros: "Good connection in London, very fast."
Cons: "It was really very cold in the BA to London flight."
Pros: "Attentive crew, plenty to drink"
Cons: "Not crazy about the seat arrangement on this plane"
Cons: "the onboard entertainment is a very old system based on small unpractical screen. Mine was also broken. My meal came, twice, with no cold drinks. I had to call the crew but did not answer all the times. When they came, they brought the wrong drink."
Pros: "BA"
Cons: "some more leg room"
Pros: "Crew very pleasant, professional and friendly."
Cons: "Tired and dated cabin; seats extremely uncomfortable causing severe back pain. In flight entertainment very old fashioned with small low resolution screens."
Cons: "Once again BA lost my luggage from my connecting flight. Twice in a week and a half."
Cons: "Separating me from my party to extort a fee to sit next to each other"
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."
Pros: "Was a new aircraft, very clean. M&S food is good (though extra of course)"
Cons: "The new seats are now no different to a no-fills airline, seriously BA, no seat recline option?! 3 times price of Easyjet yet no difference in comfort. No Map display of progress. Shall we call you Beasy jet now then?"
Pros: "We enjoyed the entertainment, the food, (dinner, snacks, ice cream, juice and wine) the service and the crew. After our flight from Madrid to London we were expecting the worse as that flight was dismal. We were pleasantly surprised that this flight was on a clean plane with great amenities."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit sloppy and of course traveling to the US adds an extra layer of crazy to everything with their added security."
Pros: "The 747 is spacious. Seats are comfortable and recline. Restrooms are comfortable. The flight crew was wonderful. Food was better than average. Wine was included. Enjoyed the ice cream."
Pros: "Service kind and efficient"
Cons: "Late"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Cramped, uncomfortable seats. Minimal legroom. Food and beverage for purchase. Luggage charged for. Group boarding. All on a so called premium airline, for a premium price. If I want Ryanair, I’ll fly Ryanair."
Pros: "On time good flight"
Pros: "Wonderful service ....i like everything"
Cons: "Everything was okay"
Pros: "They upgraded me to business class"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was helpful"
Cons: "The seat space .It is very uncomfortable to have the person in front of you in your lab for 8 hours. Continued with Icelandair home and much more space."
Pros: "Thank you for your attention and very good service"
Cons: "TV Monitors absolutely obsoletes, very old, bud definition"
Cons: "We had a carry on and were flying business class. They made us check in the bag but it was clear that it could fit. They said it was a busy flight so we had to give our bag up to check in. We arrived on the plane and there was plenty of space to put our luggage. It was not a friendly experience especially paying the premium to fly business. They were very direct and non forgiving. Crew on board were nice though!"
Pros: "it wasn't british airways once i got there - it was aer lingus. this was confusing."
Pros: "Entertainment"
Cons: "3 hour delay"
Cons: "Showed up 3 hours before departure and still missed our flight. The agents were extremely slow and rude. If you have a giant line of people who have missed their flight your system obviously isn’t working. Avoid Heathrow’s British Airways by all means if possible."
Pros: "Excellent service on both British Airways flights. Wonderful people! Comfortable seats, timely boarding process, and good communication from our captain"
Cons: "We lost our in-flight entertainment just a couple hours into the flight... the staff did all they could to try to fix it to no avail, and collected blue cards from all passengers affected. They were very nice. There was nothing they could do."
Pros: "My flight was changed from Philadelphia to London"
Cons: "Little leg space"
Pros: "Welcoming crew"
Cons: "Too warm, one of the seats did not recline fully, very poor choice of entertainment"
Pros: "Great flight, comfortable and the entertainment was perfect! The 10 hours flew by very quickly and the crew was amazing! Hey"
Pros: "I'm a regular flier. I'm a British Airways Gold Member and inflight a lot. Best Cabin Crew Hands Down."
Pros: "Overall quick, easy and event free...just as flights should be."
Cons: "Plane got a little hot sitting at the gate and our seats were the only ones that didn't have air vents."
Cons: "It has been a week and British airways still hasn't delivered my suitcase."
Pros: "Flight crew was excellent."
Pros: "Both of my flights had no person in the middle seat, so I was able to spread out more in the space which made it much easier to get some sleep, especially on my red eye flight!"
Cons: "No complaints; great service! I'd definitely fly British airways again."
Pros: "The food was elevated and we were fed twice on our 9 hour flight! The beverage service was also provided often with a good assortment. I loved that there were new release movies available for free. The staff was friendly and available. If I were to do another long flight like that, I would seek out British Airways."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "pay for coffee???"
Cons: "The Aer Lingus flight was operated by British Airways. But BA decided not to seat Aer Lingus passengers."
Pros: "That you could watch movies and shows from the headrest, very helpful to pass the time. They fed us a lot (very salty) and were very nice."
Cons: "I was in the back in the cheap seats (row 50) with a friend, we are both small to regular size and the guy seated in the aisle seat was very small and it was still difficult to get up and around each other to use the restroom. Oh well I paid $462 for round trip and arrived safely, that's what matters most."
Pros: "nothing the plane got delayed four times with no warning and then got cancelled when we all got lined up at the gate for the plane (we stood in line for 15 MINUTES BEFORE ANYONE TOLD US SHIT)"
Cons: "I didn't like that the plane got cancelled after hours of sitting in the airport, I didn't like the lack of communication between British airways staff and (would be) passengers, I didn't like that it would've taken me literally three hours to speak to a representative, and I am going to get a refund. I ended up taking an 80 pound train to London that took two and a half hours, and I expect the airway to pay for that too. This was bullshit and I hate this shirt air line."
Pros: "Liked the healthy food and new TV entertainment system."
Cons: "Didn't like that the steward put the spray downwards on the floor before flying. They should spray it upwards. They removed the snacks. I would be prepared to pay an extra £10 for unlimited snacks. They need to clean the toilets every few hours as the flight is 13 hours. By the end of the flight the floor of the toilet was disgusting. The cushion was horrible."
Pros: "I liked that we were on time getting to Phoenix."
Cons: "The plane was old and the video screen in my seat was not working properly. In economy there are way too many seats packed into a row for that long of flight. It was extremely uncomfortable."
Pros: "Seating and spacious cabin."
Cons: "Bus at GVA to furthest possible parking spot."
Pros: "The stewards and stewardesses were great. They worked hard to feed and hydrate the people in their areas, and didn't get cranky when people got up to walk around and exercise. They were pleasant and always available to help if problems came up.. They maintained a good sense of humor and seemed to care about keeping people in good spirits."
Cons: "We ran 2 hours and 10 min. over schedule getting from London to PHX. I can't understand why because pilot never said we were running late. When we landed we weren't told about the 2hr 10 min. time overage, but my sister said the plane reversed course around Iceland for a while, then turned around again and got back on track, but the PHX cell lot flight tracking board never said the flight was delayed or running late. She waited for me to get out of the airport an additional 3 hours. Luggage took a LONG time to get to the staging area and we had no clue what the problem was. It seems a simple task to put the PHX luggage in one area of cargo, and luggage going on to another destination in another area so 1st off clients could get their luggage and leave. There was a lot of luggage on the carousel that didn't get picked up. Very poor on the ground crew's part. When I have been in the air for 10 - 12 hours, I want to get my luggage and get home. Customs was a breeze compared to getting my luggage. BA lost my luggage at Heathrow on the way to Prague, and on the return had problems getting luggage to the passengers WAITING at the airport. You need to address how you handle customer luggage."
Cons: "Could not check in online"
Pros: "There was someone from BA who met me when I landed in London who gave me instructions for getting to Terminal 5. Without him, I never would have made it."
Cons: "The process of getting from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5 was tedious and time-comsuming. I barely made my connecting flight."
Pros: "The flight was great."
Cons: "On arrival in Venice, all flights were directed to customs check and there were 600 people in Que waiting when there were 2 (yes two) customs agents. It took over an hour (not kidding) to get through customs, and our driver who was waiting for us was just about to leave thinking we had missed our flight. We had no phone or way to get ahold of anyone. Praise God he waited over an hour for us to arrive. Our flight was not posted on the baggage carousel so we were running around trying to find our bags. We found them accidently. They had probably taken our flight off of there since it took so long to go through customs. I asked a customer service rep and she rudly replied to look at the sign...NO HELP! I like your Airline and the service you have on board, however, the Airports in Heathrow and Venice were horrible. The Airports need to work in conjunction better with the Airlines to make these transitions better."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I had to stay overnight because the flight came in late."
Cons: "They don't tell you upon booking that if you want to sit with your party you need to pay an extra $60 per seat. We were on a double decker and my little sister was on a different level from me. They wouldn't let me down to go see her after we were delayed for a couple hours. Ran out of food choices by the time they got to us. Because it was so large, boarding and unboarding took FOREVER. Finally, it was HOT. Uncomfortably so, both levels were extremely warm and there are no personal vents that you can open above your head. I would not fly this again."

No food except pretzels were served and no movies available - no comment can be made

Cons: "The past two times flying with American out of Dallas my girlfriend and I have been separated on the flight. The first time we were able to be placed with each other but this time the attendant at the counter basically told everyone that because the flight was booked and there were so many people who had the issue that she could not move anyone around to be with their families. That on top of being rude to many of the flyers just makes the DFW experience with American feel like they don’t care about you."
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "Did not make this flight"
Pros: "Overall very good flight!"
Cons: "Nothing much!"
Cons: "Many of the crew members seem as if they hated their jobs. I hesitate asking them anything."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "AMERICAN IS THE WORST. Never flying with them again. My flight was cancelled, &they would NOT rebook me until 2 days later. REFUSED to compensate for the hotel I booked for the night. Held my baggage hostage & would not return it for a whole day. And their customer service is non-existent."
Cons: "Flight was delayed twice, and the flight was very bumpy and the pilot really had a bad landing."
Cons: "I love it"
Pros: "Being able to pick your seat ahead of time, comfortable leather seats, snacks, on-board entertainment and free carry on make it worth paying a little extra over the other budget airlines."
Cons: "Constant delays. Maybe it has more to do with O'Hare itself than AA."
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Having to check our carry ons. We noticed another passenger had placed two carry ons in the overhead. If others are doing that, it forces others to check their carryons."
Cons: "As soon as I boarded I noticed a strong urine smell. It didn’t really go away, or I just got used to it."
Pros: "On time and convenient"
Cons: "Crowded"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "More than 3 hour delay, entertainment system audio did not function and the flight path was set to Palm Beach instead of Orange County."
Pros: "All was great - we even arrived early."
Cons: "Not even a cracker"
Pros: "The cost."
Cons: "I could not even get the flight rebooked I never got on the plane Los Angeles and they acted like I was there and all was well. I never checked in.. emergency led to a reschedule but contact was never accommodated."
Cons: "Late , didn't make it on our flight back to Santa Ana"
Pros: "Nice newer plane, beautiful."
Cons: "Though I was in a elite preferred seat (not biz). I had about 6-7 inches from my face to the built in screen in the headrest. Hard not to notice that I couldn’t move an inch without hitting the seat in front of me or passenger next to me."
Pros: "Flight crew offered me compensatory AA aadvantage miles for screen not working"
Cons: "Screen did not work on video display. As always, seat was terribly uncomfortable. Felt like I was sitting on a wooden playground bench."
Pros: "Too many commercials on the TV before being able to watch the show."
Cons: "The aisles are not wide enough and people continue to hit me with their luggage and hand bags. Always the people waiting block the entrance of the gate when it is time to board."
Pros: "The Bogota based crew provided the best service I have ever experienced. Extremely pleasant and customer focused. We were flying with twins and they assisted us through out the flight. Once we landed in MIA they helped us maneuver through the maze to reach the customs & immigration area quickly. All in all a great experience."
Pros: "Latam lounge in Bogota"
Cons: "Pay for premium seats, not enough leg room a rip-off"
Cons: "Left 2 hours late from Bogota"
Pros: "Everything was perfect"
Cons: "Everything was good to be honest"
Pros: "The AA flight attendant staff served good food and enough snacks and beverages to make me feel full on my 11 hour flight. The selection of movies and music was very diverse. And tge flight was an overall enjoyable experience."
Pros: "Everything went very well."
Cons: "No room between seats."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The food was so so nothing special"
Pros: "On time and very professional"
Pros: "There was a TV. Crew was friendly and professional."
Pros: "Rapid boarding. On time performance. Plane was reasonably clean."
Cons: "Seats were tight but OK for a 3 hr flight. AA allows first passengers to carry excessive carry-on forcing later boarding passengers to check everything."
Cons: "No entertainment, no food"
Pros: "Value for money"
Cons: "The staff doesn't hold passengers accountable to carry on bag size and additional bags. It results in cabin luggage storage being full before 3/4ths of the passengers board."
Cons: "Upon boarding the aircraft, the attendant at the gate told me to check the size of my carryon bag against the test dimensions, which I did. My bag fit but I had to press the side in slightly to make it fit. She said it had to slide in without me pressing on it and proceeded to make me remove items from the bag in order to board the plane. I walked down the ramp with my extra pair of shoes and a book in my hands. As a result, I had to place my bag far from my seat due to the added time. My bag easily fit in the overhead compartment with room to spare and my being made an example was a completely pointless exercise."
Pros: "santa ana airport"
Cons: "charged me $50 when i checked in my suitcase."
Pros: "The entertainment selection was wonderful."
Cons: "The flight left on time but arrived late by at least 1/2 hour. I am small but the seat was narrow: my neighbors kept on hitting me when they moved. And I think it is terrible to have to pay to reserve almost any seats except for the middle seats."
Pros: "Their customer service sucks."
Cons: "Their customer service sucks."
Pros: "Arriving early"
Cons: "Having to pay for the wine."
Pros: "I would like to include these miles to accumulate them. I flight with Latam to Río de Janeiro renta y. How can I get them?"
Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"
Pros: "Nothing. The entire experience with AA was horrible. Flights delayed, poor protocols to accommodate passengers in other flights.AA does not take responsibility of reimburse or compensate the passenger for cancellation of flights for technical problems of their aircraft even thought the flight is operate by AA. Zero help and communication with airlines (AA and LATAM) involved with the delays, lost connections or frights cancellations. I should be reimburse or compensate for all the inconvenience generated."
Pros: "Check in and boarding was quick"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Our flight was so late. I actually missed the original time. Ran thought TSA, sprinted to the gate and then... waited for slightly over an eternity. But honestly, the great part of AA is the super small seats, really whi fits in these seads. Thank you. I'm 4-5."
Pros: "Seats were new."
Cons: "A lot less leg room than Southwest. Very cramped. Boarding crew in PHX was very uptight and stressed. Not sure why as everything seemed in order."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I called around 5 times since june or july to change my flight because I was injured at work and couldn't travel. I called customers service and they told me that I cannot change my flight they dont give another solution they just told me that I have to buy another flight ticket. I will not recommended amy of my family or friends to travel in vayama."
Pros: "Polite and professional"
Pros: "Good options of entertainment."
Cons: "Bad service of few members of the crew. Always seem to disturb them. In the long flight, they never pass to offer water (flight Bogota-Barcelona)"
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "My entertaiment system was broke, I let the crew know about it but they never pay attention on this issue, seat 13F"
Pros: "Accuration and responsability"
Cons: "Long conection"
Pros: "Flight cancelled. Got routed through Aviancs."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "QUE SEA PUNTUAL"
Pros: "As I was sitting there waiting to board the plane I started to have anxiety. Watching how many people lined up to get on the plane made me a little nervous. I even thought about renting a car and driving from Dallas to OC California. I waited until i was almost the last person to board. What a pleasant surprise. I was seated between 2 lovely people who probably could have but didn't hardly talk the entire flight. The conversations we did have were pleasant, and they slept some of the time without snoring. It was a very nice flight home! And I'm thankful I didn't rent a car. Flying is much quicker!"
Cons: "Same as above answer. Boarding the back of the plane first makes so much more sense! I'm totally sure you all have your reasons for doing it the way you do since you have been doing this thing for years now, I would just do it different."
