The boarding process was chaotic and haphazard. The unloading of the baggage was slow and frought with issues. The smaller ladies from Delta attending the area were overwhelmed with the oversized bags. And the baggage belts ended up getting jammed up, delaying me for quite a while.

The boarding process was chaotic and haphazard. The unloading of the baggage was slow and frought with issues. The smaller ladies from Delta attending the area were overwhelmed with the oversized bags. And the baggage belts ended up getting jammed up, delaying me for quite a while.

Delta is excellent. People need to stop complaining.

Pros: "the crew took very good care of us"
Pros: "The staff were lovely."
Cons: "no covid-19 precautions were taken. It was a packed airplane didn't feel comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Last second gate change was confusing and poorly communicated"
Cons: "The plane change in LA was confusing & not very clear."
Pros: "I liked the fact I was put into a quality seat after I had booked a normal economy seat. Nice upgrade. I got lots of leg room."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of a maintenance issue. We made up some of the time, but it was an issue."
Pros: "The flights were on time. The crews on both flights were friendly."
Cons: "Figuring out how to get boarding passes after seat assignment was not easy or forthcoming because I flew basic economy, especially on my connecting flight. Having instructions on that would be helpful."
Pros: "Short flight and no problems."
Pros: "The plane arrived in Atlanta ahead of time and thus we were able to start boarding earlier than usual. The gate agent kept the process in order and moved the boarding process along nicely. The pilots also got us to Baton Rouge 28 minutes ahead of schedule which was appreciated. Nice flight."
Cons: "Same issue with getting passengers seated once on the aircraft and then getting their luggage stowed takes too much time."
Pros: "Clean first class seat."
Cons: "My connecting flight, and the the flight not being delayed the night before."
Pros: "Yes Crew was amazing. Seat was comfortable"
Cons: "No comment"
Pros: "The crew was polite and attentive the entertainment was good. Every thing else was pretty disappointing. The bathrooms onboard were pretty Dirty. The flight was delayed and no overhead baggage space. For such a long and delayed flight they gave me one pack of cheez it. Terrible value for money :("
Cons: "More snacks considering the delay. Maybe even a some sort of credit for my time wasted."
Pros: "Everything was on time & organized"
Cons: "I had to download that Gogo app to watch a move. That sucked"
Pros: "Pre-Boarding was very good"
Cons: "Meal service and trash pickup was poor. When meals were served, within 15 minutes food tray pickup was rushed making me feel like I had to cram the food down my throat. I did not and there was no further trash pickup for several hours. I initiated the attendant lamp and no crew responded."
Cons: "No WiFi kg was an old plane and the stranger next to me was 6’4” so pretty uncomfortable"
Pros: "Free WiFi"
Cons: "Dirty bathroom on the plane."
Pros: "Cabin service very good and hot meal was unusually good for economy section (especially the chicken with hollandaise sauce)"
Pros: "Crew were nice. Flight itself was short. Was quick boarding considering how busy the flight was"
Cons: "Plane was very old. Seats were rigid and not very comfortable. No entertainment. Just basic really."
Pros: "The flight was actually ahead of time!"
Cons: "I was flying standby. I checked the list on line and my name was number 5. I get to the gate and there’s just a handful of customers. The agent said there was enough seats for the standbys I wait and wait for my name to be called but no luck. My name wasn’t cleared yet. Finally I was the next to last one to get a seat. The gate agent who didn’t ask for my name tells me I was all the down at the bottom of the list. While I am glad that I got on I wish I knew what method is use to get your name on the stand by list?"
Pros: "Crew was great"
Cons: "Absolutely no entertainment for a flight that had way more people than my first one. Food options were horrible!"
Cons: "Rapid City, I could check my BAG through to PDX."
Pros: "Got me to my destination, just not comfortably"
Cons: "Seating is ridiculously cramped and overhead storage is small"
Pros: "The crew was gracious and accommodating."
Cons: "The plane showed wear and tear. We paid for delta+ premium economy and an exit row. The seating map online was misleading and we ended up next to the bathroom. The exit row food tray was broken and was hard to even sit a good tray on. The emergency exit door isn’t well insulated and we were absolutely freezing cold the entire flight. The seats were hard and uncomfortable. The food was not good for international travel. Overall I was very disappointed in this flight. I travel the world and on long hauls the planes need to be cleaned well and seats in working order."
Pros: "The chekc in person was very helpful."
Cons: "The plane was too hot and the pilot did not accommodate the passengers request. More than just me made the same request."
Pros: "Very quick boarding process. There was no entertainment so I couldn't rate that."
Cons: "There should be a N/A option if there is no entertainment available."
Cons: "The crew appeared tired, scattered, and unhappy. The flight was delayed after boarding nearly 1hr while repairs were completed. 1st announcement by captains crew stated passengers could disembark during repair, then stated 10min later to take a seat. Very poor communication."
Pros: "The crew went out of their way to make sure they got the plane ready as quickly as possible and get us to Jacksonville as quickly as possible."
Cons: "Delta lost the plane for over an hour. After already spending 10 hours in ATL because of an earlier delay due to human error I was extremely disappointed in Delta that my flight out of Atlanta was delayed by an hour because they LOST the plane and couldn’t find it or the truck to bring it to the gate. This kind of error on Xmas eve is embarrassing. Delta didn’t do anything for the passengers affected by this. I was dumbstruck by the apathy of the Delta employees at the gate (the exception was the flight crew, who tried to get the aircraft there earlier). Because Delta did nothing but make error after error I arrived at home 11 hours later than my original flight was booked for on Christmas Eve, missing Christmas Eve Services and family traditions. When I need to get somewhere on time I’ll never rely on Delta after this experience."
Pros: "On time with early arrival"
Cons: "Small plane Little communication from crew Security took forever to get through at RC airport"
Pros: "Plane was far too tight. Very uncomfortable for taller individuals."
Pros: "Refurbished plane. Lighting was good"
Cons: "No TV screen"
Pros: "The flight was on time."
Cons: "This was an almost 6 hour long flight, LAX to OGG. The aircraft was older and for a 6 hour flight, they really should use a bigger and newer aircraft. The entertainment systems on the back of the seat worked sporadically and the PA system was too loud and every time the PA system was used while we had our headsets on, it was excruciating We had no warning in order to remove our headsets before it blasted into our ears. We were amazed that after paying a considerable sum for our tickets and being in the air for 6 hours, there was limited meal service and we were required to purchase a sandwich in order to eat. I fly Delta frequently and this was by far the worse flight I can remember."
Pros: "Nice smooth flight"
Pros: "Great Food. Good entertainment. I recommend the aisle seat if you have to go top the bathroom frequently. :-) I felt that the flight attendants were concerned about our comfort on the flights."
Cons: "I would have liked more of a music and movie selection."
Cons: "Seats are too small in both width and knee room"
Cons: "Again a HUGE delay in my flight that would have caused me to miss my connection. This is the 3rd straight Delta trip in 3 months where this has happened and you can't speak with a person on the phone without waiting 2 hours. POOR customer service."
Pros: "Flight was on time, boarded quickly and efficiently. Staff were nice enough but all business."
Pros: "Everyone was great"
Cons: "The arm rests on both flights where impossible to lift to get out of our seats, the headsets had a lot of static, the head rest was broke on one side, the food to Germany was fine but back was horrible. Within 20mins of take off you were out of most alcohol and the wine was horrible."
Pros: "We stood on the ground due to weather, which had nothing to do with the airline itself. Keeping this from jading my point of view, the airline stood within the standard of what is expected of a good trip. Food was good, and the choice of movies, shows, and games helped the time pass. Staff was friendly, and checked bags were ready rather quickly."
Cons: "The number of updates telling us we are going nowhere, was a bit excessive."
Pros: "They arrived on schedule."
Cons: "Seated in the rear middle seat. I had no options to select a seat when I checked in or made my reservation that wasn't an extra charge. I'mover 6' tall and middle seats are painful, especially cross country. Airlines need to be a little more attentive to their customers' needs. If a passenger is taller than average, and the flight is more than 60 minutes, provide comfortable seating at no extra charge. If a customer has a short layover, which their system knows about since it is the sourve of the flight plans, put the customer toward the front of the aircraft since these flights are habitually late and customers end up having to sprint through airports to try to make connections."
Pros: "Boarding was smooth and fast. The crew was helpful with a wheelchair passenger, and get everybody else on board soon after. We depart the gate a couple of minutes early, and arrived almost half an hour early."
Cons: "The first class seat were not much more spacious than the comfort+ ones. Choice of snacks were limited as it was a short regional flight. No overhead or seat back entertainment, but you can stream from the media server through in flight wifi."
Pros: "WiFi, good flight attendants"
Cons: "Would like to see Direct TV along with Delta Suite so can watch live TV"
Pros: "Food was Ok and the stees heled Out"
Pros: "Nice service for short flight"
Cons: "Lost luggage for 2 days."
Pros: "Cookies"
Cons: "Space"
Cons: "Not having a seat assignment until arriving at the gate."
Pros: "Everything else good."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "The cabin temperature was not good. Started out very cold. When I asked about it (which I shouldn't have had to do), they overcompensated; then it was too warm. After a couple more tries they finally got it equalized."
Cons: "No tvs."
Cons: "Considering that we’re in the middle of a pandemic no LH ground staff at Heathrow Airport was leading by example wearing protective equipment such as mask or gloves. Further, I found it inexplicably that almost every seat was taken on this flight. If LH knows that the flight is booked close to capacity I would have expected they do their part and due diligence by swapping to a bigger aircraft to help protect people and their customers, it’s not that they wouldn’t have other aircrafts grounded and ready to go... A reduced beverage service is all you can do, really? LH - very disappointing once again"
Pros: "Food was not available for flight."
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "Very explanatory clear and responsive. There was a short delay they kept us informed clearly and responsibly. Excellent flight and superb performance. Very polite and helpful."

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Travel is good and comfortable"
Cons: "Travel from Frankfurt to London was quite late start . Delay in immigration check."
Pros: "coffee"
Cons: "boarding was chaotic"
Cons: "Flight from Heathrow to Frankfurt delayed, when we arrived we had no chance of making our connecting flight to Split yet no one told us. No one at the gate which didn’t say final call (or on any of the boards) or anyone calling us over the tannoy at any point. Super rude “flight manager” A. Turini burst out laughing when we told him our situation and when I asked why he said “Well would it make you happier if I cry instead?” So unprofessional."
Pros: "on time no hassle"
Cons: "nothing in particular"
Pros: "All good - Lufthansa even handled an unexpected air traffic delay well, meaning my connection still worked. Great price too - booked at short notice and Lufthansa business was half the price of BA. Far better device too."
Cons: "No negatives."
Pros: "Fantastic staff excellent aircraft"
Cons: "5 hour lay over in Frankfurt. Sandwiches are all the same 2 choices on all aircraft"
Pros: "Flight info from Kayak was excellent and up-to-date, more so than the airlines."
Pros: "Crew friendly"
Cons: "Waiting in the line long then expect"
Pros: "All the full service airlines are pretty good in the air. But what sets apart Lufthansa is it's ground staff. On the previous occasion I had left behind my waist bag on the seat containing passports, cash and cards. Their lost and found desk retrieved it quickly, absolutely intact. On the last occasion, my mother in law, who is over 85 was taken care of very well at not only Delhi but especially at the Frankfurt airport. I must truly acknowledge young lady Jessica's efforts, in ensuring that everything was handled very caringly by her personally, for an old lady at the Frankfurt airport."
Pros: "Stuttgart to Frankfurt was good.. ."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Welcoming from the crew"
Cons: "Take off was very scared"
Pros: "I like everything about Lufthansa in terms of quality and service"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Check in was swift and efficient. Boarding was organised and flight attendants were friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Cancelled flight and transferring me on turkish airlines again the flight was delayed over three hours.,obviously we have missed our connection flight to Beirut and now waiting in front the hotel desk because the first flight to Beirut is 12:25 pm , I have lost 2 days from my holiday,I'm very tired and upset, I will never use kayak ever again and I will tell all my friends and family to avoid it."
Pros: "Nothing. It was ok at best which is fine on a good day."
Cons: "Flight out was late due to the bus being late picking up the crew. We had to run for our connections. On the way back we were delayed again , leaving 20 minutes to make our connection. Security at Frankfurt was so poor. Of the potential number of lines available, there were only two operating despite the number of passengers, most of whom were late for their connections. It took us over 30 minutes to get through. Luckily the connecting flight was delayed over an hour."
Cons: "The flight was delayed . When we arrived in Frankfurt, there was a quie of 200m . After waiting 10 minutes, they asked us to go to other passport control . We had to walk onother 10 minutes to get there ."
Cons: "Flight delays"
Cons: "Not entertainment at all"
Pros: "We were traveling to cancun, the best part is we picked up our bags just in our final destination."
Pros: "The flight was full. service, food and entreatment was excellent"
Pros: "The business cabin was excellent for a European airline."
Cons: "Weather delay caused us (and hundreds, or perhaps thousands, of other travelllers) to miss connections. Lufthansa lost our luggage, and to get rid of us, told us they would send it to the hotel we had to check into on account of the overnight delay. They never delivered the luggage, and other employees later told us over the phone that this was not going to happen. The terminal was filled with tired and frustrated travelers, and to make matters worse, the Lufthansa staff were temperamental and condescending to many. At the peak of the chaos, the Lufthansa staff went out on break, while hundreds waited in line for over 8 hours. We expected more - much more - in one of Lufthansa’s own German domestic hubs."
Cons: "It took ages to go through the security check, although I have mentioned that I have a flight connection that is due to leave nobody gave a s..t, so I missed my flight. Now I’m waiting at the airport"
Cons: "Was delayed which caused us to miss our connecting flight"
Cons: "The waiting time"
Pros: "The environment was very nice. Relaxed and roomy"
Pros: "Nice light snack and refreshments offered. Quick boarding and friendly staff."

Cons: "No vegetarian options for food"
Cons: "Walked a very long way in Frankfurf airport to transfer to another flight."
Pros: "It’s nice that Lufthansa still gives food onboard"
Cons: "My Lufthansa flight left with 1hour delay"
Cons: "Incorrect advice from check in staff at Dublin re transit visa requirements"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled with a very poorly set up e-mail. No alternative suggestions, no phone number where to call, nothing. Very unhelpful. When calling a phone number finally found on the internet there was a 40 min waiting loop, only to then have a very bored and annoyed sounding call attended who finally was able to rebook the flight. Overall very poor service, at the very least there should have been a guideline of what steps to take now in the cancelling of the flight E-mail and where to call."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew were efficient and pleasant"
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable"
Pros: "Spare seat next to me"
Cons: "Could have done with pre dinner drinks a bit quicker"
Pros: "The boarding process was very fast and smooth"
Cons: "The seating space is very tight, more space is needed specially for tall people."
Pros: "The whole journey with Lufthansa went smoothly without any delay. The transist time is just right. The check in is online is straight forward and the flight information is very clear. I will certainly recommend Lufthansa to anyone."
Cons: "I can’t think of anything I didn’t like."
Pros: "I am so angry and annoyed with Kayak! You are thefts and lyers! I got the tickets from your site where NOWHERE were mentioned « no laggage included ! At my suprrise we had to pay extra money to check in our laggage. I will never again will book thru your site and will always tell everyone how dishonest are you are. Your telephone support staff is unsupportable ! The best to get tickets directly through the flying company, their sites are honest and correct!"
Cons: "I hate KAYAK since they are dishonest and not reliable ! Never again.I have nothing against LUFTHANSA !!!"
Pros: "The short transist time in Frankfurt"

They canceled our flights but the flight went on anyway.

Pros: "So rude crew"
Pros: "The plane condition."
Cons: "The flight attendants could have served some drinks in between the meals. They actually refused to serve something additionally when asked."
Pros: "Yes, Very good"
Cons: "I had paid for an upgrade to sit in the front of the cabin with extra legroom (row 14A). When I boarded a man sat it my seat. He had not paid for the upgrade, but the crew let him stay in my seat. I had asked him to social distance but he continued to sit right behind me bo matter which seat I moved to. He argued with the crew until they gave up and let him stay. They did not check his boarding pass or ask him to move to his assigned seat I found a different seat away from him but I don’t see the point in paying for extra legroom when the crew let’s people who haven’t paid for it sit it those seats. I felt harassed by the man and was very uncomfortable the whole flight. I am considering my next step, I think I should at least receive a refund for the upgrade I paid for."
Pros: "Salimos a tiempo . El business es muy confortable"
Cons: "La comida horrible . No se limpian los baños"
Pros: "Everything perfect and arrive to destination on perfect time."
Cons: "All positive."
Pros: "Klm's consistantly high standards in everything they do."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Keep the temperature at a more reasonable level. Blankets + two layers of clothing was definitely not enough."
Pros: "15 years ago I told myself not to fly Delta anymore. But these 2 flights Detroit to Amsterdam and back changed my mind. I enjoyed the flight very much and I'm looking forward to the next one."
Pros: "Loved the smooth ride."
Cons: "Bathroom was pretty nasty"

Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."
Pros: "Good"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Great service"
Pros: "Delayed flight but staff apologized as for safety reasons."
Cons: "Very late arrival"
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "Absolutely nothing!"
Cons: "the connection flights was the worse! The gate was changed in Amsterdam 3 times! From D82 to C6 and then to C11. The distance between B82 and C was 20-30 minutes walk. No rushing was needed though, the flight was delayed for 1:30h and after we all boarded a further delay was announced. I will never fly with KLM."
Cons: "Missing wheel chairs swrvice lounge far away no food option just lame klm tipique"
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Pros: "Excellent experience with the cabin crew."
Cons: "Seats on the 777 were too narrow. This 777 had a 3-4-3 seating arraignment, it would have been better with a 3-3-3, similar to a 787 configuration. With the current layout, even with an aisle seat, I was sitting in the aisle. And I am not a large person! The flight was full, so use the 787 and two daily non-stops. For a twelve hour flight, the food was only Okay, could have been better and with a better selection. Meal timing was poor."
Pros: "The flight attendants could not do enough for you."
Cons: "Business class was pretty empty but again I was not allowed to change my seat selection online. Pathetic check-in."
Cons: "Without any explanation the plane I was due to go to Istanbul on at 11.30 was not available. I had to wait for a small plane coming from Edinburgh then wait for it to be emptied of passengers and cleaned. This meant we were over 2 hours late into Istanbul. No explanation or apology. I then missed my next flight in Istanbul and had to purchase another ticket. I cannot believe that air passengers are treated in this way!!! I will follow this up with KLM when I go home from my holiday."
Pros: "Easy boarding, plenty of room"
Pros: "Equally friendly crew and experience. It was complimented by the time we got to spend in the fantastic KLM lounge while we waited for the flight."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Pros: "Boarding/unboarding"
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."
Cons: "Not only was there free food but they tried to sell you a bunch of stuff. Not a moments piece."
Pros: "Catering is ok"
Cons: "Seats comfort really old school"
Pros: "Jet airways flight till mumbai"
Cons: "Poor legspace in Klm flight till Amsterdam"
Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."
Pros: "It was a short flight so it was O.K."
Cons: "Boarding was odd. Go to airport early and counters were not open, did on line check in so was able to avoid the self check in at airport. Also self check in luggage seems confusing with no ground crew to help. It didn't affect me but lots of confused passenger."
Cons: "I requested low fat meals. The first one, was OK. But they forgot my request for the second one."
Pros: "Great smooth flight staff was pleasant and the overall experience was fantastic."
Pros: "Unexpected surprise--even on a 1 hour flight at noon, they gave us a sandwich!"
Pros: "Even for this short flight, drinks and sandwich was provided staff were efficient and friendly"
Pros: "Reasonable seat space for economy. Good selection of movies. Food reasonably good. Crew very efficient."
Cons: "Boarding at Amsterdam was disorganized. All economy boarded together. No row number boarding (which was the process for the outbound flight from San Francisco). Lights in economy were not switched off or even dimmed during the flight making it difficult to sleep especially if you had a window seat."
Pros: "Flight all good"
Cons: "Suitcase did not arrive and still not received."

No online check-in, so not ideal for business travellers having to queue to check-in at Zurich airport

Boarding and online chkin was very good, food was not to the expectations.

Not the best crew. Extremely annoying with mask wearing. Even when I was eating and drinking they would come up to you to tell you to wear your mask. Extremely annoying.

Pros: "Great and friendly crew"
Cons: "In-flight system had some problems and seats seemed a bit uncomfortable"
Cons: "I was catching a flight in Paris to Aberdeen after arriving from Malaga. The time between flights was not enough 55 mins as the gate closed 20 mins before departure and it takes at least 15 minutes from arrival to taxi to the terminal and then get off the plane. I had to change from terminal F to E which was well sign posted but I only made it with 4 minutes to spare"
Pros: "Na"
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Pros: "Crew was great but at the airport they had us weight our carry on and then made us check it for 90 euro."
Cons: "Boarding (by bus) was a total chaos. I had to stand for about 50 minutes, either on the crowded bus or, after climbing with great difficulty three flights of stairs to a high jet-bridge (I am 76), standing there forever with 200 persons waiting to get access to the plane. Totally unacceptable. They started the boarding process early (50 minutes before departure), but passengers were allowed to actually board the plane at the time it was supposed to take off."
Pros: "Entertainment programs"
Cons: "New variety of food"
Cons: "the tray was broken and the water felt all over. the flight was 1 hr delayed. All of us stood the 1 hr waiting to know what's next. We could sit."
Pros: "All went right namely the seats but the luggage condition is the worst"
Cons: "Air France is not a low fare airlines, I had to pay 225 USD against 3 luggages which is not acceptable. We should have the right for one luggage per ticket as all other airlines. If I knew this will happen, I wouldn’t use Air France and this will be the last time I buy a ticket on Air France"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Average crew. Average seat."
Cons: "They could have controlled screening babies better. They just let them scream....."
Cons: "More water provided during the flight. Also, the second meal was not very good."
Cons: "The flight delayed for 2xhours from Paris to Cincinnati"
Cons: "If you have to change planes and Paris is your middle person. Leave at least 2-3 in between the two flights otherwise you might not make it."
Cons: "Booked with my partner. Ended up sitting apart. Not good"
Cons: "wine selection divider between seats"
Cons: "Air France delayed our JFK to CDG flight. That caused us to miss our connection flight afterwards from CDG to MUC. We got a later flight luckily but one of our bags got lost and is still currently lost!!!"
Pros: "Everything. crew friendly and food/drinks the best"
Cons: "Nothing...all was wonderful"
Pros: "Service and crew are great"
Cons: "Seats"
Pros: "Very nice stews. Food was A plus compared to US airlines AND included. Great list of movies etc."
Pros: "The crew worked hard, but the food was below the French standards."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours and the passengers spent this time in the cabin without a/c."
Cons: "I didn’t have time to make it through customs. Missed my flight"
Pros: "1. Entertainment - Decent movie selection. I wished the angle of the screen in economy could be adjustable as well. Turkish Air does it better. Once the seat ahead of me reclines I dont have too much hope of saving my eyes from the awkward angles."
Cons: "1. Boarding - Learn from maybe Turkish Air who allocate people zones based on where you are seated in the plane. People seated all the way in the back should be allowed to board first and fill the plane back to front. Makes it less likely for you stand around waiting for people as well people all the way in the back making contact with every possible human already seated in the aisles. 2. Comfort - Window seats are too hot, middle aisle seats are too cold 3. Thankfully they do have halal offering. Now if they will even let me choose that I am allergic to seafood. Glad for the chicken. Nothing to boast about."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, seated in the last row and non adjustable seating, so very little leg room. Dis-enbarkment was very slow."
Pros: "From the boarding, to the friendly hostesses to the food and the business class seat, I was impressed all the way. My first time to fly Air France business to the US and it was great. I recommend it!"
Cons: "I just expected better toilet bag for business but what was given out was just basic."
Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "We were 2h late"
Pros: "Very good male crew member. Pilot genuinely apologetic for the delay."
Cons: "After running due to a 1 hr 10 min change over between flights boarding didn't prioritise anyone but I got on fine. Only to be told at the departure time that there was a problem with the baggage hold and we were delayed. In total 50 minutes late leaving. Breakfast a simple brioche with nothing to add to it."
Pros: "I like fly attendant who served us meal"
Cons: "I didn’t like that space between each seat is small"
Pros: "I like the service. They caring and give snacks, comfort and overall"
Cons: "None. I like everything"
Cons: "Airplane really old. Cabin configuration economy was in front of economy plus. Just 1 bathroom for economy and economy plus. Economy plus seats old and uncunfuttable ( more than it should be )"
Pros: "The flight had a delayed of 2 hours due a system issue, but the flight was comfortable, and the airplane was clean."
Cons: "I didn't like the check in, the personnel there were not so friendly and had discrepancies. We were a group of 6, and 2 of us were able to drop the bag in the check in. But the others were told that needed to wait 30 mins."
Pros: "The crew and flight was faultless"
Cons: "We were not advised of a flight number change or checking in location change. This could have resulted in us missing our flight."
Pros: "Food and service was good and price was acceptable"
Cons: "Very long route"
Cons: "CDG is a monster. The distances are long . The signage is poor and when I asked for directions the diirections I got were wrong."
Pros: "La entrada"
Cons: "El resto de cosas"
Pros: "The airplane have great entertainment system. The cabin crew are very nice."
Pros: "Courteous crew"
Pros: "On time after latish start"
Cons: "Staff took carryon bags even for skypriority even tho lots of room in overhead, allegedly to speed deplaning. Nowarning to repack. Infuriating and stubborn staff!"
Pros: "Crew was nice and responsive"
Cons: "The overall experience is regular at best"
Cons: "Had to check in our underweight small carry on because there was no space left. Left out hotel at 3.15am. A dry croissant did not satisfy three hungry children for breakfast, the coffee was terrible and the seats too close together. Not a good experience."
Cons: "Disappointed to get delayed due to control tower issues at CdG. Landed more than 30 mins late in London"
Pros: "1) USB charger and electric outlet 2) Availability of 2-across economy seats (for a price) 3) Vegetarian dinner option available and not too bad 4) Flight arrived on-time"
Cons: "1) No on-board wifi 2) Not much seating room - very thin 3) 45 minutes late taking off"
Pros: "leg space in plane"
Cons: "The leg-space is very narrow The chair is very tiring No entertainment at all Food was tasteless But most surprising was that we were on stand by for our connecting flight. Though we bought the tickets months ago and we got our luggage checked in all the way to the final destination."
Pros: "The flight attendant was very nice to me. TV was very good. space was enough ."
Cons: "We had to pay for wi fi."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. AF changed seats without authorization or notification, separating a mother from her 3 year old daughter. Their entire attitude was "nothing to be done, now board plane and leave" no compensation was offered, nothing done to remedy their mistake or rude behavior and treatment"
Cons: "I was forced to rebook my 3rd leg after taking trains in the middle."
Cons: "Meal choice missing kosher non-gluten combination."

Sone pleasant staff. On time. No AA staff at gate at boarding time in PHL. Most staff engaged with one another, but not very attentive with customers.

I will be very glad when this mask business is over.

Cons: "Very good I like it👌"
Pros: "Good overall."
Cons: "American airlines oversold and that caused us to start late. The seats are too small for 2 adults to sit next to each other. 1/2 the people wore masks. when we arrived we sat on the taxiway for an hour"
Pros: "Lounge was nice at DFW"
Cons: "American Airlines alone received over $10 billion in COVID relief, yet they are steadfast on a policy that separates customers on the same reservation (basic economy). $$$ over health & safety. Other airlines are leaving the middle row empty while AA wants a second bailout from Congress. Shameful!"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful."
Cons: "Sears are pretty tiny for comfort"
Pros: "Crew was very good. Seating was bad"
Cons: "Bigger seats"
Cons: "The seating was not good middle seat I like windows"
Pros: "No entertainment system working"
Cons: "Free WiFi since entertainment was off"
Cons: "Flight was 90 min late due to mechanical issue. Missed next two flights, was rebooked in coach vs paid for first class."
Pros: "Delayed and dropped off in the rain far from terminal still waiting for bags"
Pros: "Clean and comfortable main cabin."
Cons: "Lead flight attendant too casual. Didn’t wear jacket, didn’t even know he was a member of the crew until he walked the aisles mid flight. Wore Bluetooth headset around his neck. Inflight WiFi entertainment didn’t work at all. Internet (AA.com) seemed to function."
Cons: "Inconsistent baggage rules across employees in different parts of the company."
Pros: "The wifi actually worked!"
Cons: "Seats are so small and I even purchased the extra leg room"
Pros: "The crew aboard the plane was very friendly"
Cons: "Food was bad. The gate personnel was incredibly rude"
Pros: "Service was poor and unconcerned about comfort or needs."
Cons: "The flight staff did not appear to want to do their job."
Pros: "Staff were nice and the pilot got us to Asheville faster than expected."
Cons: "Due to the short trip there weren’t on trip snacks or drinks. Not necessarily bad, but can’t give them a high rating for it if it’s not offered."
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "3 1/2 hrs late departing dfw, and luggage missing, found and delivered the next day."
Pros: "Because he flight wasn’t full, the seat next to me wasn’t occupied, giving me a bit more space."
Cons: "Food was bland. Flight was delayed almost two hours."
Cons: "Delay"
Pros: "Trip overall was great until getting baggage at baggage claim."
Cons: "We waited 1 hr or more for our baggage to arrive at baggage claim and no one from AA told us anything until about 50 minutes into our wait that there was a weather delay so baggage crew couldn't work in the conditions. When we landed, the weather was fine so no one knew! Many people missed connections or had to run through the airport by time they got their bags. Better communication would have been easy to do to keep us informed."
Pros: "The direct flight from Philadelphia to Venice is extremely convenient. We were treat4ed professionally with care from the staff"
Cons: "The food was just ok and quite frankly could have been a whole lot better. The dinner they served was chicken with just a smidge of salad and rice. The food we received before arriving was pretty bad. it was two very small hot pocket things. Not at all app[ealing."
Cons: "Super TSA lines in Denver and American employees were less than accomadating or did not meet any kind of customer service expectation. Terrible airline!"
Cons: "Gates are unorganized and crowded"
Cons: "I didn't make the flight because the connector to Philadelphia was delayed. The replacement flight isn't until tonight - 24 hours after I was scheduled to leave."
Cons: "As above, had to buy same day tickets for the entire flight."
Pros: "Overall crew were pleasant, boarding organized"
Cons: "Besides being 2 hours delayed, we stayed 10+ hours crammed in very small seats, causong poor ability to rest the whole flight. Very unpleasant and painful for such a long flight."
Pros: "Comfortable and on time"
Pros: "Comfort of leg room on BA and AA operated flights, was better then virgin atlantic which I usually take."
Cons: "Movie selection was old, not as good as virgin atlantic airlines"
Pros: "Great plus amenities if watching flight."
Cons: "When I arrived at the gate, the flight was on time, but no aircraft was at the gate. The gate attendants left at the time we were supposed to Board, then the departure time changed on the board and no announcement was made. Another gate attendant told me that the aircraft was at DYT, but the reason for delay was crew rest. As the delays continued, 3 in all, we were told that the aircraft was at DYT but we were waiting on a crew to be flown in from Charlotte. Not sure how AA messed up their crew rest schedule on domestic regional jet carrier. Either way, a new gate attendant arrived to take over, and continued to tell us we were waiting on crew. Then the story changed to waiting on aircraft and crew. By the time the 3rd change in departure had been made, and we were still waiting on aircraft and cre, AA failed to continue to update the departure and arrival times. Once we boarded around 9:00pm the boarding time still showed 8:10pm. Then we sat on the runway awaiting departure for approx 40 minutes before taking off. Very poor communication And customer service."
Pros: "Very nice, hot meal a bonus - didn't know we'd be given dinner :) Seats ok - leg room acceptable"
Cons: "Thought we were flying British Airways - even this survey says it's BA - went to wrong ticketing desk and was sent to American - had to let our friends in Germany know the change by email - worried they wouldn't get the email in the muddle of their night and they'd go to BA gate undead of American. It was a little disconcerting"
Pros: "Great flight!"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "It was just great"
Cons: "Didnt like the food or the movie selections"
Pros: "The location of the seat with "leg room" was next to the bathroom."
Cons: "The location of the upgraded seat with "leg room" was only half way open to leg room due to the exit door inconvenience"
Pros: "On time, good food, good entertainment and comfortable seats."
Cons: "Missed connection flight because they were late taking off, stuck in Munich all day. Only some of us got our second ticket to begin with even though we were told to check in to both through AA. They did take responsibility and pay for our lunch though so there's that."
Pros: "Good food & movies."
Cons: "Flight was delayed because of weather. No fault of carrier."
Pros: "Free in flight movies"
Cons: "Nothing in particular"
Pros: "It was a good and comfortable flight and a nice crew allthough it was Operators by AA"
Cons: "The food is not overwhelming."
Pros: "Excellent entertainment options"
Cons: "Wi-fi not available for most of the flight. Very uncomfortable middle seats for long flights such as this one."
Pros: "No excuse on a night flight does the temperature to be 80 plus degrees on the plane."
Cons: "The plastic seats and extreme temperature was brutal. They shut the AC off of down somehow."
Pros: "Worst plane to travel 5 1/2 hours. Almost no legroom, very small seats."
Pros: "Gate agent at DFW helped with a seat change so my wife and I could sit together--excellent seating in the exit row"
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Paying extra money to pick seats before 24 hours check in. I have 2 children and cannot risk them sitting separated from their parents. I'm sure other travelers would not want a 6 year old aline next to them either."
Pros: "Delays. Gate changes on both flights."
