Pros: "Perfect"
Pros: "Crew . Food . Service was great ."
Cons: "Every things was good ."
Pros: "Very friendly crew, good space in my seat, kept the plane dark and quiet for the overnight flight"
Pros: "The service was great! I slept almost the whole way in economy and was very comfortable!"
Pros: "Seats are very comfortable, easy boarding, good crew"
Cons: "Food - I wish you have healthy options"
Pros: "crew were amazing."
Cons: "I requested a chicken meal and I told the steward that I would wait because he did not have anymore at that moment. He never came back until it was time to pick up trash. I proceeded to tell him I never got the main course, he apologized and told me that there was only an egg entree left. I went ahead and took it, then as a way to apologize he offered to get me a piece of fruit, a banana. I accepted but he never came back with it. It was not a big deal but I did not appreciate being offered something and then no follow up. Next time do not offer something and then not follow through."
Pros: "Very nice"
Cons: "I was unable to get my food preference on line days before my trip. It kept telling me to try again. Fortunately the staff was very helpful when I got on board and were able to accommodate me. I hope not to have that same problem on my return flights"
Pros: "Seat next to me was empty, helping with the very cramped conditions. Great food. Movies were okay."
Cons: "Late boarding, then delayed further due to departing passenger. Delay caused me to miss my connecting flight in Doha. 5 Star Airline marketing is nonsense. Same cramped seats as any other airline. Boeing 777 is a disappointment. 787 is much better."
Pros: "I had an exit seat"
Cons: "Service was only fair, no power outlets for a 15 hour flight. Seats too narrow. Only good options for every meal was chicken and vegetarian"
Pros: "They printed all 3 of my boarding passes for my connecting flights when I first checked in, made me worry about less"
Pros: "Flight was without any hitches, could have done better with boarding after the previous mishap of a 5 hour delayed flight and being forced to stay in Doha for a night which put everyone's schedules off by a day. Still, I would book another flight with Qatar airways for their efforts and overall good service."
Cons: "It would have been nice if Qatar Airlines also provided Priority Boarding for everyone on the flight that got delayed as there was a long line just to get to the boarding area."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "my flight was delay 24 hours"
Pros: "Enjoyed the food and the service from the crew. Plane was new and relatively new and comfortable."
Cons: "The check in agents were not very polite or helpful. They did not offer much assistance and help for a first time customer on Qatar Airways. My bags were also not loaded onto the plane and had to arrive on a later flight"
Pros: "This was car better than most flights I've been on in the US. Lots of leg room excellent entertainment system good service and customer care."
Pros: "Quality of foods and service"
Cons: "When I checked my two bags, I was told to pick them up in Doha and recheck them to my final destination at Rwanda. When I arrived in Doha I was told by the transfer desk that I did not need to pick up my bags because they had been checked to my final destination. I even asked them to pull up my flight information and to confirm that, which they did. However, when I arrived in Kigali, Rwanda, my bags were no where to be found. No one has found them yet. I also called Qatar Air before my flight and asked about hotel accommodations for my layover because my layover was from 6:00 pm to 7 am. When I called, I was told that I would be given a complimentary hotel room because of the length of the layover. However, when I arrived I was told that I did not qualify for the hotel accommodation. Then, I was told that a hotel room would cost 250. When i arrived at the hotel, I was told the cheapest was 325."
Pros: "Love it. Newer airplane; state of the art high-tech."
Pros: "It was something unexpected"
Cons: "Almost missed my flight. I had to take a bus, go through a transfer check, and then take a train to the gate, which got me there so late (even with running) that they were calling my name (and a few others) over the loud speaker."
Pros: "Economy treated like first class!"
Pros: "Large monitor and many choices of movies. Good food, efficient boarding."
Pros: "The food on foreign airlines is so much better than on american airlines (they even offer something in economy class on short local flights)."
Cons: "The seat spacing on the 70-minute flisght was a little cramped - it would be even worse for a taller person than I (at 5'10")."
Pros: "Service, friendliness of that staff"
Cons: "Other passengers used my carry-on baggage space and my carry on was placed far from me."
Pros: "Overall it was a nice flight however some areas need some attention. Boarding gates were very crowded and there was no crowd management in the small area. Secondly, the food was not at all upto the mark. If you are serving sandwich atleast make it flavorful or just serve drinks on this short flight with nuts/biscuits/chocolate."
Cons: "Read on the left."
Cons: "Food choices could be better."
Pros: "Left on time. Great pilot and crew - very concerned about our welfare. Quick flight. Nice aircraft."
Cons: "Steep decline in food quality"
Pros: "The flight was short but the plane was well maintained and the crew was accommodating."
Cons: "The boarding process started too early and some of the passengers were annoying as they jump over you because they were not directed to the correct aisle."
Cons: "Realised that for short flights they do not supply headsets. This is rather strange, since the media content they have is useless unless there are headsets / paid or free whichever"
Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "The plane was too small and lots of turbulence"
Pros: "the comfort of the flight was very good."
Cons: "there could have been a little bit bigger portion of food."
Pros: "Excellent aiways"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Food is awesome and plentiful. Crew is great. Plentiful entertainment options."
Cons: "The economy seats are just not comfortable. The entertainment system is glitchy"

Cons: "Plane was a little too warm."
Pros: "I like it."
Cons: "No problem"
Pros: "Excellent!"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Rudeness of check in staff Disorganized, slow and chaotic screening process for transfer passengers (only two machines for thousands hundred passenger) Near- or semi-illiterate ground staff"
Pros: "Nothing!!!"
Cons: "The plane was almost an hour late taking off from Doha. No one explained anything about the delay. This made us miss our connecting flight to Detroit. When we reached Boston, no one from Qatar air was available to help us get another flight. They made one announcement about contacting so and so, but no one had any idea who that was. There was no help with the baggage. Thank heavens for Jet Blue staff who went beyond to set us in the right direction and booked us on another flight.. Was very disappointed!!"
Pros: "Leaving Doha was excellent"
Cons: "Took forever to get out of emigrations, we landed at different terminal and had to get train over. coming back the flight was delayed and it was just nutts trying with everyone trying to get on board."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "I think in plain should serve international food not only Indian spicy one. may some do not like spicy"
Pros: "Excellent"
Pros: "Brand new airplane, amazing crew, I had a great flight overall. Did I say the crew were amazing?"
Cons: "Food portions were too small compared to Emirates, entertainment options seemed fewer, and WiFi was expensive."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Flight delay and postponed my journey more than three hours without any compensation"
Pros: "Short trip very comfortable"
Cons: "No complaints"

the crew and actual flight was great. i appreciate the puffy headrests with folding edges. but we have been sitting on the ground LAX for 2 hours now waiting to be let off at the gate. the water in the bathrooms has been dumped so we have to use sanitizer, and it’s hot in here, and there are no vegan snacks and barely any water. this is insane.

No ear pieces for entertainment.

Pros: "The stewardess working first class was very rude to my son. Her negative attitude set the tone for the entire flight and ruined our experience."
Pros: "Flight canceled without notification"
Cons: "A quick drink service would have been nice, it was provided on the same flight going the opposite direction"
Pros: "Felt very clean and so glad they are not selling every seat"
Pros: "The timeliness of the flight and the service during the flight."
Cons: "The tagging of the bags. The bigger bags should be the only ones tagged. Smaller bags that fit in the bin should be allowed in the cabin."
Cons: "I’m skinny and 5’2” and I felt squashed. Like I was in a dollhouse. The space is too small, it’s too uncomfortable. I couldn’t take my zip front sweater off. The seats and space are not proportional to humans."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and smooth all the way"
Cons: "Tastier food options"
Pros: "Super crew. Reasonably good food. Liked how safety conscious crew was."
Cons: "Nothing. Great job everyone"
Cons: "Plane was cramped and in disrepair: broken seat arm and headrest, very limited recline. It was a 767 and felt more uncomfortable than a 30 seat regional jet. Very dated entertainment system with limited media options. Exceedingly long delay (1 hour) which the pilot attributed to the ground crew."
Pros: "Good snacks, comfortable flight."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable but crowded. Was nice to have the built in screen for entertainment."
Cons: "Did not like being bumped to a flight with a five hour layover in SLC. Travel day was already very long. We booked the flight originally based on the shorter layover of an hour and a half. Seemed very inconsiderate."
Pros: "That there were TVs on the seats to watch and it was quick boarding"
Cons: "The delays"
Pros: "Everything . Delta is one of the best"
Cons: "Seat didnt recline and very tight between passenger seats"
Pros: "The flight left on time and arrived on time, crew was pleasant and helpful."
Cons: "I am over 6 foot so comfort for me isn’t possible. It was an older aircraft so the seat monitor was of the older version but it did work and helped to pass the time while I was in my no leg room seat! I am NOT over weight! With turbulence there was only one opportunity for inflight beverage service."
Pros: "They were very helpful. I hurt my leg and am on crutches and they were extremely helpful to get me to my next gate in Minneapolis and to get me to baggage claim in Philadelphia."
Cons: "The comfort of the seat, the food"
Cons: ". The flight was overbooked and I had to wait for last minute to find out weather I will be on board of the flight .My bags were left behind in Amsterdam which were delivered later than they were supposed to."
Pros: "Clean and spacious plane, relaxed and organized gate cre"
Cons: "Crew member passing out ear buds ran out and never came back"
Pros: "At the counter the staff is friendly, nice."
Cons: "There is no one to organize the lines to the self check in on the computers, basically a mess, nobody knows how many lines are there."
Pros: "Waited for me"
Cons: "Damaged my suitcase upon arrival"
Pros: "Staff friendly and helpful. Some turbulence due to having to fly over tropical storm. Like the games and movies available."
Cons: "The cabin was very warm."
Pros: "Cannot. Figure out how to use the wifi."
Pros: "great flight , on time, great service"
Pros: "Beautiful new plane with large overhead storage, comforable seats and moveable aisle armrest."
Pros: "Lov"
Pros: "Due to strong tailwinds, the flight arrived nearly an hour earlier."
Cons: "Flights on time"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Flight very smooth"
Cons: "We had to get seats at boarding because of the flight delay. She offered us two seats in the back. I knew they don't pushback so I said no. She had given the woman ahead of me two seats in comfort plus. Did not offer that and was rude. There were at least a few empty seats in that area. As a courtesy to us having 1)been delayed in Costa Rica. And then 2) a long wait for the connecting flight in Atlanta it would have been reasonable to offer those seats. Which remained empty"
Pros: "Staff lovely"
Cons: "Flight delayed so we got bumped to a later connecting flight An eight hour trip became a 12 hour trip"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew was extremely friendly"
Cons: "Early morning flights .. the People are not aware and awake"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and curtious. Boarding was a bit more chaotic than usual and the gate agent made no announcement about boarding procedure, which certainly contributed to the scrum resulting. I arrived from the Skyclub several minutes prior to boarding time and was unable to find a path through to the Priority Boarding Lane. As boarding began she had to redirect at least seventy-five percent of those in front of me as they were not in First Class. Had she made one or more clear announcements about boarding procedure I rather doubt such a misunderstanding would have occurred with so many."
Cons: "For the third Delta flight in a row (all First Class) the crew did not make any effort to keep economy class cuctomers form storing bags in the First Class overhead or using the only First Class laveratory during flight. This flight I was unable to utilize the laveratory even once due to this excessive and continuous useage. Trying to do my bit to reduce our carbon footprint, yet I am sorely tempted to return to charter service when disrespect of the airlines own basic service class rules gets piled on top of TSA hassles."
Pros: "That the planes flew and i met my connections and arrived home."
Cons: "Below average crew with little to no interest in doing anything but getting the flight over. Cool, and perhaps lazy or tired. We were told there was not good offered on the flight because it was not long enough. Minneapolis to Spokane - seriously????5 days earlier on same flight there was full food offerings. Audio quality and ear bugs are barely useable. Very difficult to hear any of the spoken words of the movie and I have good hearing."
Pros: "Crew was great, helped us board fast after a delayed arrival and to avoid needing a crew change (FAA Regs)."
Cons: "Plane was a D-90? The plane was very loud with vibration noise at very high decibels during the whole flight. Because of the extended flight (3 1/2 hours in the air) due to a storm system, they should have offered more food to travelers."
Pros: "Fast boarding one way from Nashville to Boston. Smooth ride and on time."
Cons: "Trash onboard from previous flight and flight attendants texting during beverage service and seemed annoyed they were having to hand out drinks and crackers. I don’t enjoy feeling like a nuisance when I’ve paid $250 for the flight. FREE WiFi didn’t work. I always avoid Delta when possible."
Pros: "Entertainment (your own device) and crew were great"
Cons: "The plane needs to be re-furbished or simply retired. Seats were broken, no screens on seat back for entertainment was disappointing"
Pros: "Early"
Cons: "Crowded"
Pros: "Personnel were pleasant and welcomeing at the gate and onboard."
Cons: "Service overall and pleasant disposition of the crew."
Cons: "The flight was delay for 3 hours and they only give us chips and water. They didn't explain well what was the problem. The plane was dirty inside and the seats werent comfortable at all, the plane was making weird noises. There is no window in the 11A Window Seat. Really really bad service at all."
Pros: "Everything was easy to follow....All of the flights were on time and very comfortable...."
Cons: "Nothing to report that was bad..."
Pros: "Had to go through an extra random security check before boarding along with several other passengers. Looong flight, but expected when traveling that distance. Slept and watched movies. Best part: the pilot pointed out that Greenland was visible outside our windows as we flew over."
Cons: "Nothing. It was a smooth flight. Very comfortable."
Pros: "No fee to get on an earlier flught"
Cons: "When I tried to rebook online this flight was not an option"
Pros: "Smooth flight and always a plus to see a beautiful smile throughout the trip from our Flight Attendant Stefany!"
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "Boarding class and queuing for boarding is always a clusterf***. People will crowd the gate and board with the wrong class and that creates anxiety and leads to edginess. If a system could be worked out and enforced that would help."
Pros: "Flight attendants were very nice"
Cons: "Overbooking flights"
Cons: "turbulance"
Pros: "People, your people were fantastic!"

Lufthansa is the worst airlines ever !! Very unprofessional I then booked another flight back to Dubai on Emirates

Pros: "Great crew, decent food, plenty of wine and other drinks, on-time departure and arrival."
Cons: "Cramped uncomfortable seating, USB port on seat-back video display does not charge a handheld device battery."
Cons: "My luggage was left in Athens due to late arrivals in Athens to Munich. My son received his I didn’t, huge inconvenience"
Pros: "My meal request was better than during my Frankfurt to Abuja journey. I did not know the content of the food then."
Pros: "Service and the crewe was very kind"
Cons: "There was no entertainment a lite. Crowded the seat but I understand as it was a smalll airplane."
Pros: "Efficient boarding, friendly crew, nice range of entertainment options."
Cons: "An economy seat is an economy seat ...."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The sandwiches"
Cons: "Cramped, old plane with no entertainment system."
Pros: "Worst ever"
Cons: "Poor service"
Pros: "I was happy with everything stewardess where very friendly everything went smoth"
Pros: "Nice comfortable flight"
Cons: "Crew was not necessarily warm or curteous"
Pros: "Crew was so attentive and helpful. Very courteous and friendly. Had great experience."
Cons: "Head rest on Seats tilts slightly forward making long flight uncomfortable"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "The raisin muffin was very old"
Pros: "Staff is great"
Cons: "Food is not good."
Pros: "The video library was huge, current and very helpful. The good was great"
Cons: "Way too stingy with ice - 4 ice cubes at one time was the max allowed."
Pros: "Crew was nice, Feel safe"
Cons: "We left Frankfurt over hour late, no entertainment at all, small plains have usually few big TVs on the sealling there was nothing."
Pros: "Very attentive, friendly and multilingual crew, frequent offers of food/drinks, good selection of movies"
Cons: "More a problem of the San Francisco airport than the airlines, but getting through passport control/customs involved multiple VERY long, slow-moving lines with very few people working to process the crowds. Then, even though my bags were checked all the way through to my final destination, I had to pick up my luggage and re-check it, and go through security again--and that also seemed poorly organized and/or short-staffed."
Pros: "The aircraft was great. A bit wobbly on take off and landing, but overall spacious and comfortable seating. The seats had many position options which was amazing. Meal service tableware was clean and pleasant to use. Food was also great. Also a very wide selection of entertainment options! Also, good flying from the pilot’s crew. Flight was on time."
Cons: "The servicing crew in the business cabin was inexperienced and unrefined. The flight attendants seemed to just want to “get it over with” with questions like “are you done?” The attendants wanted to take our drink order as soon as we got in without giving us a chance to settle into our seats and kept hovering over us until I had to ask her to give us a couple of minutes. The airline did not stock enough snack and ran out mid flight. We had to wait for the next meal service which was not fun. I ended up getting a sweet drink just to get by. Internet, which was paid, was so slow that I got tired of watching it trying to load the pages and gave up. Eventually, the connection completely stalled even though I still had over an hour remaining of the 4 hour package. I used maybe an hour of the total purchase. Total waste because I couldn’t get any work done. Overall, I did not think this was an experience worth a business class ticket."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "Flight got delayed 9 hours."
Pros: "Excellent flight attendant in charge of us."
Cons: "The galley where the snacks were looked more like a very dirty restaurant kitchen. It was absolutely gross with dirty forks, dirty glasses, overall grimy and dirty."
Pros: "It’s nice that Lufthansa still gives food onboard"
Cons: "My Lufthansa flight left with 1hour delay"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Horrible experience. Stranded for 3 hours inside stationary flight, 4 hours in a long queue. Very very poorly managed. I slept on a chair in the cold weather. Atleast make arrangements for bad situations, apparently I was booked on another flight but they made me stand in a 4 hour long queue to find that out. Kiosk outside showed I was put in no flight. One of my worst experiences and rest assured if I’m given a chance I will never choose Lufthansa again."
Pros: "The movie selection"
Cons: "They ran out of food- I didn’t have dinner on that flight. We were almost 2 hours late to Dubai. I was irritated to say the least."
Pros: "Staff is super friendly and works hard to accommodate your needs. This flight also so happened to be empty so I got to lay down and nap haha."
Cons: "Nothing. Everything is great. I'm just writing these words so my review hits 50 characters."
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: "Great service across the board! Wonderful, experienced staff!"
Cons: "Seat space was inadequate. My shoulders are 4 inches wider than the seat space including both shared arm rests."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and the boarding process was fast and simple. No food just snacks and what they had was good. Once I got to the airport there was a wheelchair at the gate and it was great because we were on the opposite side if the airport for our next flight and he was very nice to talk to as we were walking."
Cons: "It was a pretty short flight so no complaints."
Pros: "You can't beat the German's at efficiency. Awesome!"
Cons: "Houston isn't their hub and I have to put up with United."
Pros: "i received an unexpected upgrade which worked out very well."
Pros: "the crew are exellent"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "No escalators when we arrived in Frankfurt and the bus ride before getting on planetoAthens was not good"
Pros: "Was no flight"
Pros: "Excellent service. Everybody from the crew up had smile. Very good atmosphere. I would definitely fly with up guts again"
Cons: "I'm 6'2 230 seat was tight for me but that is it"
Pros: "I found the seats roomy - plenty of leg room. They were very comfortable in the way they leaned back. The food was very good, even though the meal was a simple lunch. The plane was very clean and bright."
Cons: "There was nothing I did not like. In fact, I felt: "This is the way flying aught to be.""
Pros: "I am 6'1 so I wish could have afforded 1st class, but I am grateful to the desk staff who made sure I was as comfortable as possible. Great movies. Good food."
Cons: "The tightness of the seats!"
Cons: "The 1-star responses correspond to N/A. Mt flight was :30."
Pros: "The entertainment touch screen system is so much easier to use than the planes that have the remote controls. Having all of the toilets downstairs was nice. It was less noisy and had a little space to stretch. The crew was very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Even though I was sitting on the left side aisle seat (2-seat section), it was very cramped. I'm only 5'2" and my legs were very uncomfortable. Along with less leg room than other airlines, it felt like the seat itself was narrower too. The food quality control was disappointing. The meal I had on the first leg of my flight (Mumbai-Munich), I noticed that it expired by about 2 weeks. And the complimentary water bottles also had a past expiration date (although, I don't know how water expires). Generally speaking, I think all of the meals I ate on Lufthansa were subpar compared to the many Asian airlines I've used for overseas flights. Quality could be improved and I think there's a missed opportunity to incorporate meal options correlated to the airline or international destinations (German airline, why not bratwurst? Pretzel bread?)"
Cons: "The return leg has been nothing but a disaster, in every way possible, specifically my time and financially. At no point in the booking process, when I paid over $800 for the trip, was I told that I needed a specific travel visa (Canadian ETA) to fly back into Toronto for my return flight. Subsequently when I checked in for my flight yesterday morning in Manchester, England, I did not have the required travel documents and had to be rerouted onto a flight into the U.S. at a cost to me of $350. The rerouted flight got me to Washington Dulles airport, where I then had to purchase a second flight to get me home to Cleveland, Ohio, at an additional/extra cost of $450. MY CAR IS PARKED AT TORONTO PEARSON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT!!! I am having to now rent a car and drive there tomorrow (Friday) to collect my car, at another additional cost of $100 plus a 10-hour round trip. Due to the lack of information and communication on your companies behalf, I am down close to a $1,000 and will lose 2-days in work as of the additional days I am having to travel back to Toronto to collect my vehicle. I would appreciate contact from your organization to find the avenue I need to take for compensation of my time and finances. Regards"

Cons: "Every thing was very proffasionally managed with very good customer service and smiles."
Pros: "Food was pretty darn good, and the crew was very generous with drinks."
Cons: "There was some metal box by my left foot that restricted my leg room even more than usual. But I'm not sure if there was anything that could have been done about that."
Pros: "Fast and it didn't feel like it's forever. Great meal options and entertainment with English subtitles"
Cons: "Awkward seating with 3 people in front of my row, having to share the screen."

Cons: "Gate crew unfamiliar with child restraint seat regulations and recommendations."

Waited on board for an hour. Waiting for maintenance to check light in bathroom. Finally left and told it would be unavailable and to use bathroom in front! 😕

Heater worked poorly. Cold flight.

The person sitting next to me took my storage space under the seat but other than that was pretty good service and the food was not terrible.

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "WiFi didn’t work"
Cons: "Smallest plane ever. Absolutely no leg room or overhead space."
Pros: "CBP info."
Cons: "Wish AA cabin crew would treat the customers as attentively and friendly as the JAL crew. The 8pm inflight dinner is horrible. Why would they serve the cold dishes for the first Japanese course? I got a diarrhea."
Pros: "Easy boarding. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Both the to and return flights, I was never able to get their entertainment to work on my iPhone. The website fails to load in the browser even though I’m on their in flight WiFi and following instructions specifically"
Cons: "If delay to much pls let customer out of plane"
Pros: "Great crew."
Pros: "I liked how convenient and smooth everything was, from the price of my plane ticket to the pick-up and drop-off of my rental vehicle. Also, the text notifications I received upon landing that informed me how much time I had I had between flights & where to go!"
Cons: "Honestly, there's nothing that comes to mind for me as far as improvements go."
Pros: "The plane, Embrair 175 is very comfortable."
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Flight attendants were very good."
Cons: "Pilots need to do a better job of communicating delays. Especially the ones piloting this particular flight."
Pros: "Nothing. Have not flown American airlines for the past 15 yrs because they always managed to have mechanical problems, delays, etc. Flew with then for the first time since, and again, mechanical problems. They kept us inside the plane for two hours. Because of that delay I missed my connection."
Cons: "The hotel they put me in (Holiday Inn Airport) is like going back to the 70’s. Horrible experience overall. Needless to say, not flying American Airlines ever again."
Cons: "Commuter jet—no comfort. No jetway, we were on airplane stairs."
Cons: "Flight canceled with zero re-book.assistance offered and NO seats left. I was forced to upgrade to get to my destination a day late. Trip was short to begin with. I booked plenty in advance. I want my 55m miles back in my account. It was that or $1000. Unhappy customer."
Pros: "I liked being able to board early as an active duty service member."
Cons: "I don't really have anything to complain about."
Pros: "The crew were great, entertainment was good."
Cons: "After sitting on the plane for an hour they found a problem and so we had to deboard and wait for another plane. Obviously better than taking a less than optimum plane but added a lot of waiting time to an already long day. Not great that on a 6 hour flight we had to buy food."
Cons: "Tray table was dirty"
Pros: "Crew friendly and accommodating, even on short flight"
Cons: "Good - no complaints."
Cons: "I was bumped off the flight due to weight restriction and moved to a flight 6 hours later, it only took me 4 hours to rent a car and drive home. I am a 210 lb 6ft tall male. I was not the reason for the plane being over weight, I was there before boarding took place they didn't ask and I didn't fly."
Pros: "Fast quick flight. Bags out quickly."
Cons: "Seats are far too cramped for someone who is 6,2."
Pros: "Food was okay"
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The tv at key seat did not work at all initially. Crew tried to re- boot it but it still didn’t work properly Flight attendant in our area was brusque and rude. And none of the others said a word to us"
Pros: "Average but what we’ve come to expect from american airline companies"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "I could give you specific feedback if I'd actually flown anywhere. American Airlines completely screwed the pooch, rebooked, and then canceled my flights. They could've handled it much better and we found out later from another agent that they had other flights that could've gotten us on another one of their flights that would have gotten us there on time."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice and sweet for an early morning flight."
Cons: "We delayed in TUS on the runway and in LAX due to congestion at LAX. Nearly half of us had to sprint to make out connections. Luckily, LAX never launches planes on time. More a fault of LAX and it’s inefficiency than AA. Still annoying."
Pros: "Nothing — the flight was cancelled because of a fault on the plane."
Cons: "Cancelled flight.."
Pros: "Accodation ofvstaff at gate, boarding, seat."
Pros: "Flight got me home safely. Flight was delayed gor hours due to weather. Crew was good. Short flight so no food/beverages or entertainment."
Pros: "Friendly Staff"
Cons: "I am very disappointed with my flight this morning on American Airlines 1533. The crew did an excellent job. The issue, however, is the media AA chose to play at 8:30am. The NBC show that was playing on every overhead TV on the flight featured a woman being sexually assaulted by a man, someone being bludgeoned with a piece a wood until they lay unconscience in a pool of blood, and woman with a gun to her head as she’s being yelled at by multiple men. I was flying with my three year old son. Why on earth is it necessary to show this tv show (or any show that has mature/adult ratings) on a flight that is obviously going to have audiences of all ages? Our flight had a dozen or so children and when you show prime time trash on the overhead TVs, it’s really tough to keep kids from looking forward the entire length of the 2 hour flight so they don’t watch a woman being raped, a man being beaten, or someone being held at gunpoint. I am traveling on behalf of the US government so I didn’t have to pay for my ticket. I did, however, pay for my 3 year old son to accompany me on the flight and I am wholly unsatisfied with the AA team responsible for choosing in-flight ‘entertainment.’ I’m not sure if NBC pays AA to feature their shows or AA has to pay NBC for the pleasure of featuring their trash but either way, what in the world are you guys thinking?"
Pros: "Entertainment, seating room"
Pros: "Leg room and seats were comfortable,"
Cons: "Hidden bag fees"
Pros: "Polite. Clean. Nice business class."
Cons: "Would like more Western food."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and fast in turning plane over."
Cons: "Flight delayed from 1015 pm departure to 1135pm, so I had to making my arrival at 1am. Hard are the person picking me up. Despite the fact that they moved my flight they closed the Aa lounge at 10 and kick you out, even though they moved my flight"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "48 hours to get to Philadelphia from Madrid. First flight was cancelled due to plane mechanical problems. Then flight diverted due to bad weather. Horrible flight."
Pros: "Individual view screen"
Cons: "Small seat"
Pros: "My flight is tomorrow"
Cons: "Not having boarding passes for the entire trip and not checking luggage thru to Charlotte was a hassle."
Pros: "The crew of the plane going to Rome was very nice. Food was good. And the departure was fast."
Cons: "The entertainment system crashed and they had to reboot it. Also the system was old and the touch screen was not responsive. The headphone jack was put in such a bad place that I broke my headphones accidentally while moving."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "I went to British airways to check in and the sent me to American. It was the worst aircraft I've seen for an intl flight."
Pros: "Arrived on time !"
Cons: "We arrived on time but this is the 9th Flight in A row into PHILADELPHIA that we can’t Find an open Gate. Then we just sit and wait 15 to 30 minutes! No other airport that we travel To has this problem!"
Pros: "Nice plane"
Cons: "Slow set up of gateway upon arrival"
Cons: "Easy direct flight. No issues."
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and apologetic for the chronic problems with the entertainment system. The pilot gave us a smooth flight and landing, and was very conscientious about turbulence prevention and safety."
Cons: "The inflight entertainment system was spotty. Some customers had monitors that worked, some did not. A woman with a two-year old had one of the malfunctioning monitors and was forced to entertain her child for nine hours without tv, movies or music. Similarly, on our flight over to London 10 days earlier, my husband and I were 2 of more than 30 passengers whose monitors never worked and we were forced to fly for 7 hours in the dark on an overnight flight staring at the backs of seats. It was miserable. The cabin crew told passengers they had begged the airline for years to replace the system but the airline refuses. Will not fly American Airlines transatlantic again."
Cons: "Delayed boarding that caused us to miss our next flight."
Pros: "I like the movie selection"
Cons: "The landing was horrible like slamming on the brakes in traffic. Also when I bought the ticket from Alaska Airlibes on kayak I had bought it at a higher price specifically for that. There was an American Airlines ticket that was cheaper but I opted to pay more because I thought I was flying on Alaska not American. I was very disappointed to see that I was actually flying on American once I was pro ting my ticket and after purchase and "no refund" message. I was very upset about that!"
Pros: "Announcements and directions on landing in Philadelphia were very complete and helpful. Crew came around multiple times offering drinks."
Cons: "Baggage unloading took 40 minutes to begin. Caused jam up behind other arriving flights at customs and everyone in big rush to catch connecting flights. Entertainment good but touchscreen was not responsive and frustrating to operate. Long walk to new terminal for connecting flight even though flight was listed as the same flight number for both legs."
Pros: "I liked the fact I eventually ended up in Dallas - that's about the only thing I liked about this flight."
Cons: "Inconsistent service - some customers got cans, some got just a cup with a lot of ice and drink. FAs were uninterested when the drink I wanted was not available. Flight was delayed by a maintenance issue. Overall, a terrible experience."
Pros: "Avianca personnel helped as much as posssible because I am a frequent flyer in Star Alliance but there was only so much they could do"
Cons: "The itinerary I selected from Kayak site was impossible to accomplish especially with checked luggage because they would not transfer my bag from one airline to the next. Although I got my luggage quickly and got to the check in counter right away, the flight had closed and I had to wait for the next flight."
Pros: "I like AA"

Great crew; great job boarding on time and arrived on time Entertainment and music offerings not as good as American flights I took last week

Pros: "Flight was comfortable and quick. Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Suitcase arrived brokken off the belt. If was in good shape when checked in at Chicago for the last leg of a 17 flight round the world trip. Typical to have baggage handled very poorly in US."
Pros: "Crew was amazing but the seats were small and had very little leg room"
Cons: "Food service and beverages were mediocre at best"
Pros: "It was just okay"
Cons: "Nothing just flying in a smaller plane"
Cons: "The delay was horrible and the captain said it was because they needed extra sleep. I found this offensive as i was trying to complete a very long trip and was exhausted."
Pros: "Everyone was nice, and the flight was on time. Checked in with the app and just a carry on, so my day was hassle free."
Cons: "Can't really think of anything. It was a good flight."
Pros: "Flew United out of Sioux Falls. Check in took forever. United employees were miserable. Did get some help from a very nice TSA woman. TSA check in was a nightmare. Almost missed flight. Complete chaos. The sat on runway for 40 minutes waging for luggage to be loaded. Almost missed connecting flight. Just plane horrible. Very helpful stewardess however."
Pros: "Flight attendant was friendly and plane ride was smooth."
Cons: "Flight got delayed twice (3+hours total) then we had to wait another 40 minutes for the plane to get there, deplane, and get cleaned up and restocked."
Cons: "Maintnece delayed our flight for nearly 3 hours. We remained aboard the parked plan for this time span and not allowed to get off of plan."
Pros: "Respect and support"
Cons: "pretzels and drinks only provided. Not too friendly stewardess, eating utensils were not available to assist customer with brought in meal. Luggage did not make it to destination with passenger... it arrived 2 hours later in the following United flight."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Stuck in Denver because our flight was delayed so we missed our connection to Houston. Couldn’t get a hotel voucher because they are claiming a weather delay (which there was none)."
Pros: "I’m still in Lincoln every united flight other than those our of Chicago have been delayed by 5-7 hrs and or canceled it’s been the worst trip iv ever taken"
Cons: "I’m still in Lincoln every united flight other than those our of Chicago have been delayed by 5-7 hrs and or canceled it’s been the worst trip iv ever taken"
Pros: "Nice to have free movies on the UA app"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for 30 minutes before taking off"
Pros: "Aisle seat was convenient"
Cons: "Stewards never smiled, acted like they didn’t care about passengers, spilled food in isle next to my seat and very slow to clean up Just not the friendly skies advertised. Will consider different airlines next time."
Pros: "The crew was very nice and the Pilot gave us periodic updates which was also nice. The plane was very clean."
Cons: "There is NO ROOM. The seats are just too close together making them extremely uncomfortable. I was also disappointed that there was no DirecTV. The choices with the in-flight entertainment was very minimal and outdated. And the Wi-Fi was ridiculously expensive."
Cons: "Delayed for over 3 hours due to jetbridge being stuck to plane. Basically 2 5.5 hours have taken me 2 full days instead of one"
Cons: "Unassigned seating from the beginning of the trip made the trip arduous."
Pros: "The crew - very friendly."
Pros: "That I got a direct flight to my destination! Which I've never had before."
Cons: "That there was an hour long delay. What if I had a connecting flight?"
Pros: "Always raved about my experience. This time was not impressed. The people who initially took our bags were great, there after... not good."
Cons: "Arrived at 0750, ahead of schedule and waited until 0915 to get off the plane due to an error with the gate and then a malfunction of equipment. Now waiting for our baggage for 40 min. still nothing. Disappointing start to an already short vacay."
Cons: "Food and crew."
Pros: "-"
Cons: "i paid to upgrade to economy plus, and was seated in the busiest door traffic area near the bathroom next to an obese man whose body literally melted over into my seat. it was the red eye and i slept only 5 minutes! also the flight attendant kept storming by back and forth for the entire flight, which made it absolutely impossible to fall asleep."
Pros: "It appeared as though I would miss my connecting flight and then crew moved me to an empty seat by the door so I could get off to make my flight!"
Cons: "The plane was too cold!"
Pros: "Flight was okay"
Cons: "Flight was almost 2 hrs delayed"
Pros: "The flight was fine. Crew was polite. No problems with that part."
Cons: "Tell me why it costs $470 to fly 1.5 hours from S.F. To Denver. Absurd! I flew from Denver to San Fran for $90, the same week. Never again!"
Pros: "Everything was on time. Had enough time to get breakfast before departing. The stroopwaffle is awesome."
Cons: "Very cramped plane. Very hot in the cabin. And veneration wasn't good, cabin smelled like farts. The bathroom door lock was broken and didn't close all the way either. Had to gate check my bag again."
Pros: "I liked that my flights were on time! We even arrived earlier."
Cons: "The woman when boarding the plane in Chicago was very rude. Crew is not friendly! We received one glass of soda, they do not give you the whole can and one small snack. In Delta they give you the whole can and they give you 3 snacks. If I have a choice I will not fly United again."
Cons: "Weather in Lincoln canceled the flight the night I was supposed to leave so I had to sleep in the airport. With that being said the flight and crew when I finally left to Lincoln were great."
Cons: "Our plane was United, so I don't think this reflects on Lufthansa, but rather United. The plane entertainment was extremely outdated and there was not enough room in the overhead containers for everyone's carry-ons. This problem made boarding a very long and aggrevating process."
Pros: "Well, my original flight was cancelled due to bad weather, got to spend 2 extra days with my family! Gave up my seat on the last leg of my flight, got a 500$ voucher, put up in a beautiful hotel, w/ a nice meal and transportation. Like winning a sweepstake. Always love United, great airline, great staff."
Cons: "There was nothing i didn't like. Airline of choice, for always!"
Pros: "Newer aircraft very comfortable"
Cons: "The flight from Scranton to Newark was delayed causing a 2 hour overall delay"
Pros: "Arrived on time. Plane was clean."
Cons: "Passengers for numerous regional flights had to wait in a crowded area before going to our gates in the basement. There was no attendant that I could see to tell us what was going on until 30 minutes or less before departure. I had never seen this arrangement before and was not pleased with it. On board, there was no snack, only a beverage, which I did not want."
Cons: "I hated not having access to movies on my personal device."
Pros: "We boarded quick, the flight was smooth. We arrived early. The staff was friendly"
Cons: "I upgraded to first class for more comfort, so I could rest and I was extremely disappointed that my seat didn't decline at all. The snack choices could have been a lot better."
Cons: "I nearly missed getting a cup of ice when the refreshment cart came up the isle. Then the attendant acted as if he couldn't understand my request for a "cup of ice, please" and he tried to hand me a small package of snacks. I had to repeat myself 2 more times and finally got my cup of ice. I said "thanks!" His look told me I wasn't "welcome"."
Cons: "Could not get seats together with my daughter even though checked in on-line exactly 24 hrs. prior to flight. No 2 seats together in economy. How can all the seats be taken so quickly? Seems like the airline is just trying to "force" passengers to upgrade their seats to get more money."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Nada"
Pros: "The flight attendant, Elizabeth, was great! She was friendly and helpful. She made our flight more enjoyable."
Cons: "The ranch snack mix was kinda spicy and had a couple of weird things in with the pretzels. I would've liked it better if it was just regular pretzels. In fact, both my boyfriend and I only ate the pretzels part of it, because we didn't like the other parts."
Pros: "On flight staff are quite courteous and respectful."
Cons: "I'm concerned with the lack of respect that United shows for its passengers time. Cancelled, delayed, boarded and de-boarded all on the same would be flight. I was told via text and found it nearly impossible to speak with a person during the whole thing without physically being at the airport. When I was the staff seemed dismissive of my time and concerns."
Pros: "Ride was ok. Both our flights from Chicago were delayed. No one tried to explain or offer any apology. No one offered to complete anything or offer coupons for meals. I thought that was extremely rude."
Cons: "See above. Very disappointed. There were four of us and my 76 year old father has health issues and was very uncomfortable."
Pros: "On time Fast Snoith"
Cons: "Seat was hell Boarding !!!!! The terminal was hot old confusing Even if local think about the wonderful new bus terminals that are being built Tech could go s long way Use apos to highlight boarding ligistics Location and direction sids Etc etc etc Dulles gets an F here"
Pros: "Airline staff was very friendly."
Cons: "The temperature in the cabin was almost unbearably hot throughout the entire flight. And to give some perspective: I'm someone who is usually always cold on airplanes and typically not a fan of a/c. And I wore shorts & a t-shirt on the plane which I was nervous about doing because like I said, I'm always cold, but thank goodness I did for that flight."
Pros: "Can't sleep sitting up. Pretty funny watching everyone try..."
Pros: "courteous attendents and airport personnel. on time flight"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "I was in economy + which had good leg room"
Cons: "Overhead bins for economy + are placed elsewhere. Preselected meal not available and was delayed in serving the alternative for 20 mins. Entertainment options include TV shows with 1 episode to pad the numbers"
