Pros: "The crew were very friendly and responsive to all requests."
Read more about Air New Zealand
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and responsive to all requests."
Pros: "The crew is consistently wonderful!"
Pros: "crew were fantastic. stewardess called Stacy was wonderful; had to time to chat and sort out my diet problem (gluten free) in time for the return flight. i've flow on a variety of airlines over the years and, frankly, ANZ is by far the best for friendliness, efficiency and understanding. Big Thanks"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew was awesome! Kind and funny!"
Cons: "The weather, but pilots did great despite it."
Pros: "Entertainment options. Communications from captain. Dimming of cabin lights."
Cons: "Delays on both ends, including a substantial delay waiting for an open gate. Food was poor. Flight attendants were occasionally impolite."
Pros: "Kind staff, long flight but the attendant were super kind"
Cons: "Food in business class and more choice of movies"
Pros: "The crew was wonderful again. This time I had an aisle seat in the center section and it was much more comfortable. The food was vegetarian and quite good."
Cons: "No complaints!"
Pros: "They took care of you. Meals were good. Excellent airline"
Pros: "I had to us the wheel chair And they were all GREAT I was by my self"
Cons: "Right now I can't think of any thing"
Pros: "Seats rows seemed to be more distance apart than other airlines. Flight was actually done by Air New Zealand rather than Cathay Pacific. Check in at Auckland airport was very quick and highly automated, however, our gate was not posted till one hour before the flight, so we did not know where was the best place to sit and wait."
Cons: "Food was mediocre. Coffee and tea were like warm or cold."
Pros: "Good food"
Cons: "Why so cold in the cabin!"
Cons: "Boarding and take off was delayed by about one hour, with no proactive communication from crew about the delay. Passengers waiting to board individually questioned why we had not started boarding yet when information screens in the airport displayed otherwise. We did not start boarding for a 12 hour international flight until ten minutes to scheduled take off. The first time we were informed about the delay as a group was after we had entered the aircraft."
Pros: "The option to gate check strollers for easy access with a toddler"
Cons: "The stroller wasn't delivered to the gate by Air New Zealand"
Cons: "For the $s paid for this flight the crew could be a little bit friendlier and having a smile on their face."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Pity that a light meal wasn’t served fir free but understand because of low price"
Pros: "Free drinks and snacks"
Cons: "The meal choices were chicken curry or beef on this flight. They ran out of beef quickly. Why would you serve something like curry on an airplane that’s not at all agreeable to at least half the people on the plane and then force the rest of us to eat it when you run out of the other option? My seat recliner was broken so I got to sit straight up for 12 hours."
Cons: "I was not given a chance to make a seat assignment on the Alaska legs between Seattle and LA and ended up being stuck in a middle seat going both ways. There,was no option during booking to make a,seat selection. This was also true for the LA to Auckland outbound leg. This is an area needing improvenent."
Pros: "The crew were friendly."
Cons: "I was charged $120 for baggage to fly 3 hours from NZ to Australia, when there was no mention of it when I purchased and no indication of these fees in the booking info."
Pros: "Skycouch a MUST for long haul flights."
Cons: "bummed I couldn't even opt in or purchase wifi. being self-employed and having such long flight - its just a missed opportunity. the screens were hard to even see. it just kind of felt like an old, dirty airline."
Pros: "friendly staff, ease of boarding"
Pros: "Very friendly and helpful Flight attendants. Food was good."
Pros: "Booked these flights though Kayak. Landing from LAX at 0730 at Auckland international terminal and then departing at 0900 from the domestic terminal. This is not enough time, doesn’t allow for customs and immigration. It was a really stressful experience running between terminals with my luggage, as there was less than a 1 hour window after getting through customs and immigration, so the bag drop at international wouldn’t accept them. Got to departure gate 12 minutes before plane departure. You need more time to have a good experience !"
Cons: "Not enough time booked by kayak between an international arrival and domestic departure"
Pros: "The food was very good, the movie selection was great, and the staff were friendly and caring."
Pros: "Two toilets in Premium Economy, comfortable seat with blanket, headphones, and large pillow"
Pros: "Good thing, we got there."
Cons: "The flight attendants did nothing and told us we had to buy water. Really?? We were over charged for our baggage by a long shot. You sell cheap flights but by the time you pay for bags it is no longer a deal."
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Can't say enough about how good the experience was. It felt like business class, except the seat doesn't transform into a flat bad. Service, meals, amenities, washrooms, etc. were amazing. Also, the flight times AKL-YVR and YVR-AKL are so civilized! You leave each city around dinner time, you dine, you watch a movie, sleep as much as you want, have breakfast, and then it's time to land! Way better than other options that leave at odd times."
Cons: "I can't think of anything to improve. NZ really rocked the flight and the Premium Economy product."
Pros: "All the attendants were wonderful."
Cons: "The hand cream and lip balm were excessively scented. I could tell when anyone in the cabin used it. The food was a little too fussy for my taste with trying to put 12 ingredients in one chicken dish."
Pros: "The crew was very nice, and I loved the entertainment options."
Pros: "Cool temps in plane"
Pros: "everything"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "smooth flight, good treats, great legroom and fun crew!"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "Unclear check in counter"
Pros: "Great food, wine, service Seats"
Cons: "no wifi"
Pros: "Excellent service, prompt attention, really great flight experience"
Cons: "Got delayed in Queenstown and left the next day, First to Wellington, Auckland, Los Angeles and finally OKC"
Pros: "Foot rests, pillows, blankets, nice seats, and they had free in flight entertainment as well as dinner and beverages"
Pros: "Nearly always enjoy flying Air NZ and this was no exception. Friendly efficient service."
Cons: "Not getting a choice of meal due to being last row of seats."
Pros: "I liked the entertainment selection. There were plenty of movies to choose from--and I do mean a massive selection. Also, the food was better than I usually expect from airplane food. The crew was very friendly."
Cons: "I guess this goes for all economy class seats, but there's no room to move. I was lucky to have an empty middle seat (which merits the "good" rating over the "okay"), but even with that, maneuvering was difficult (trying to get stuff from the carry on stored beneath the seat, etc.). Things got worse when the person in front of me decided to put his chair back all the way into my face."
Pros: "Plenty of movies. Tight legroom and harder to get into seats with pillows, headsets and blankets on seats and the plastic bags make them slip everywhere.. Maybe pass them out after everyone had boarded."
Cons: "See above. Plus it was a rough turbulent flight."
Pros: "I was on flight nz10 from Auckland to hawaii 3/28th. Loved the crew, they got us on board quickly and we would have taken off on time but had to wait for 2 people showing up late. Anyway, it was a redeye so people slept for most of it and I watched movies and drank wine. The airplane was clean and bathroom were as well. It was a full flight so a little cramped."
Pros: "Check in process was very good"
Cons: "Staff is not necessarily as attentive to individual needs as they could be. Many oversights in service. Also, the sound on my video speakers was distorted (loud screeching) that ruled out any chance to watch any movies on this long flight."
Pros: "already commented above, everthing about the same...staff was very nice"
Cons: "Very tight small space, food not great quality. Also a lot of plastic used, hope there is a recycling program in place or strives to reduce the waste for the food."
Pros: "Very friendly and good service- price was very high for the distance/time"
Pros: "Flew from LAX to NZ and then to Tonga. Both flights were amazing with the best cabin crews. I would highly recommend Air NZ."
Pros: "I have not flown international in a long time. It was confortable and entertainment was great. The only thing I did not like is that with New Zealand air one can only check in 1 bag for free. We stayed in NZ for 18 days. The other airlines let you check in 2 bags. For an international flight 2 bags is only fair. Thanks."
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seat back did not recline, free still water not available on touch screen ordering"
Cons: "Food"
Cons: "Didn’t even take off!"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Getting on and off the plane took some time, but doesn't it always? Economy class was slightly more comfortable than many other airlines, but nothing to write home about. Qatar Airways really shone in the food, the service (both onboard and off) and the entertainment. Good experience."
Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Cons: "Great service."
Cons: "Great"
Pros: "Seat was comfortable."
Cons: "transit timing was a bit hectic."
Pros: "Crew and food."
Pros: "Crew not as nice."
Cons: "More hospitable crew"
Pros: "They greeted us in Georgian at the gate during boarding, this was very nice."
Cons: "Entertainement could have been better, there was no in flight entertainement at all. The food alos remains to be improved."
Pros: "Looks that it will depart on time"
Cons: "Middle seat"
Cons: "Very poor meal for vegetarians on one flight (toasted veggies on a tiny round bun)."
Pros: "We received friendly attitudes with lots of soft drinks. Upstairs in the airbus was good as my seat was near the emergency door, where I had room for my long legs. I was given aisle seats on both return flights so I could move about more. The meals were lovely. The airbus was good for peace & quiet from crying children."
Cons: "I had left an expensive style of neck/travel pillow i left in my Perth rental car but wasn’t supported to pick it up. I had to arrange for the car rental firm to post it. We had over 3/4 hr to fly. We were boarding. It’s a shame there wasn’t a quick way of getting my pillow to me without customs bureaucracy. It was a simple mistake. A toilet was blocked and temporarily unavailable. Some passengers were taking a long time and queues were building at different times."
Cons: "Crew members are waking up for lunch and breakfast but not for snacks and other beverages. We are feeling hungry later. we aren't knowing when they ll provide."
Cons: "The plane was delayed at the start but that's was ok you need a safe plane but we missed the next flight. You don't flight to Cuba so missed all the next day flight to Cuba but you lost all four bags and not helping to get them back so missed the rebooked flights again, so stall waiting someone to find them."
Pros: "Great service from all staff ,"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Caring service, good pod seats on A350 and airy cabin."
Pros: "Jain meal was quite uninteresting Flight was too packed Cabin air stale and dry"
Pros: "The food was great!"
Cons: "The way the crew member woke me up for lunch or dinner time.They tapped my shoulder and was pretty disturbed me. If good if you have a sign that we can put next to our seat if we don’t want to be disturbed while we sleep."
Cons: "I was put on another flight eight hours later even though I had already checked in. I actually traveled with Cathay Pacific."
Pros: "Good leg room. Food was best airline food I've ever had....... By far"
Cons: "The added journey flying around Saudi Arabia. Adds extra time onto a very long flight. Would put me off flying Qatar again"
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Food was good, I got the Hindu vegetarian. Also service from Nagpur to Doha is very convenient."
Cons: "It was mostly a good experience."
Pros: "They do not provide hotel service even in a 11 hour layover saying the ticket is pomotional. If that is the case, why they sell tickets on promotion? Cheap mentality"
Pros: "Boarding and crew were excellent."
Cons: "Lack of information about the flight delay of 4hr 45 min apart from expected take off time."
Pros: "Philadelphia-Doha was excellent and noticeably better than Doha-Bangkok. ood, service, condition of aircraft were all better in the PHL-Doha leg. I have done the trip a few times now so it is not a fluke. Odd that the Doha food (and I usually get the local dishes) is very so-so. I usually only take a bite or two. Not appetizing. The Doha-BKK staff was less professional as well. The trays of the main meal were left with the passengers so long, we passengers started to bring our own trays to the galley. The plane out of Doha was very tight so passengers in economy have that sardine experience. The cup holders did not work although they would have been useful."
Cons: "Chairs a little too small for long flights...."
Pros: "Great service. Courteous staff"
Cons: "Outdated IFE-overhead screens. Biz customers get iPads preloaded with movies"
Pros: "Exceptional service!"
Pros: "excellent service always a pleasure to fly with QATAR Airways"
Pros: "Food was great. Attendants were courteous and nice. Airplane very confortable and clean."
Pros: "Crew was good, they were trying hard to keep customers happy."
Cons: "Limited food selection on top they ran out of available options so basically only one beef option was given. Either u like it or not. Pretty old movies in entertainment section, broken seat controls, charging ports and headphone inputs. No clear announcements by captain."
Pros: "A new Dreamliner. Nice! Very good service. Gate personnel were very accommodating. Nice smooth flight. Doha airport was nice and mostly empty. Mediocre selection of restaurants."
Pros: "Flight was on time. Excellent price. When comparing the flight from Manila to Doha and Doha to Philadelphia. The flight to Philadelphia was excellent,superior due to the crew and aircraft."
Cons: "Waiting area at the Manila gate was over crowed, needed to sit on the floor. The entertainment system on the 777 was hard to operate, slow to respond."
Pros: "I enjoyed my flight overall with good service by the attendants. Additionally, the food quality was good for an economy meal."
Cons: "long layover and very tight seat conditions were my only big complaints."
Pros: "I received email telling me that my fright was delayed and showed the time they told me to be at KGL airport but when I showed the airline was already left because they was no delayed. I had to book another plane to return to US which cost me $1500. Here is the email Dear Mr Muvunyi Good morning This is to inform you that your flight from Kigali QR1378 is delayed due to operational reasons, please be at Kigali Airport for check in at 4PM and check-in will close at07PM. Best regards Jeanne D’arc Uwitije Reservations & Ticketing Supervisor Tel: (+250) 252553500"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and not interefering in long flight"
Cons: "Flight from Qatar to Seoul was quite old I believe. USB on my chair did not work and media in LCD screens were not new enough. seats were quite old and not convenient for 10 hours flight."
Pros: "Onboard crew"
Cons: "Boarding process. It could start on time as printed on the boarding pass. If it is by zone, the provide a few minutes between the zones and adjust time accordingly."
Pros: "Crew attention and care"
Cons: "Food: at best a B+ Entertaining: movie variety is poor. Seat: even in business class the seat doesn't recline completely... not very comfortable as compared to other airlines"
Cons: "You canceled our flight in the last minute. we were starting our holidays and missed one day included the booking reservation. We didn't get any refund regarding this issue. On the other hand, i booked my special meal and never received it."
Pros: "This flight had one of the best selections of movies I've seen on a flight.....a damn good thing given the 15-hr duration of the flight. I had so many screaming babies around me that the flight attendants helped me to move to another part of the plane. They were incredibly sympathetic and accommodating. Airlines from the USA could learn a thing or two from Qatar Airlines."
Cons: "Small seats (I'm fat, so this is my problem really)."
Cons: "Excellent"
Pros: "The entertainment options were fantastic! The flight attendants were very cordial and hardworking."
Cons: "I was very pleased with my flight. I really have I complaints."
Pros: "Qatar airlines was awesome! Comfy seat, great headrest, lots of entertainment options and decent food all on a very short flight. Would definitely fly this airline again!"
Pros: "I have never had such an easy long distance flight. Hope to fly with Qatar again!"
Pros: "Qatar airways 3 hrs short flight was spectacular at all levels"
Pros: "The timing was spot on and I had no major issues. The staff was great. They showed that they truly value customer service and were patient"
Cons: "The song selections were somewhat old and should be looked at."
Pros: "Cabin cleanliness including restrooms, excellent food selections comfortable seats including head support and friendly professional attendants."
Cons: "They cancelled our flight without informing us from Doha to Miami, so they were going to fly us to Doha at 3 a.m., take us to hotel, and then have us fly the next day. This was the third time this airlines cancelled a flight on us for the same trip. The first two times were traveling from Miami to Delhi, we had to change our itinerary because they cancelled the flight, and we had to fly on different dates. This caused a series of hotel changes and cancellations costing us a lot of money. On the flight that we finally got from Doha to JFK, the man sitting next to me SMELLED LIFE THE FUNK OF 40,000 YEARS. It is unbearable. Thirteen hours of pungent body odor that even the flight attendants acknowledged was horrific. It was a miserable experience flying with this airline for what was to be the trip of a lifetime."
Pros: "Amazing service the whole way, extremely polite and helpful even though I'm not one to ask for much. Food was great and also the entertainment, definitely flying with them again."
Pros: "Thank for the great staff"
Cons: "The chicken dish was a disappointment q"
Pros: "A lot of food was served - much more than any flight in the USA"
Cons: "nothing"
Pros: "Crew was super kind and friendly. Food and beverages were good as well."
Cons: "Seat space in main cabin was a little cramped. The seats themselves were a little hard."
Pros: "Love qantas airways! Such a great and safe airline."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight. The full range of entertainment made the time go quickly. Professional crew."
Cons: "I know it's an airplane, but even so, the food was astonishingly bad."
Pros: "More comfortable than expected."
Cons: "Could not check in online or at the kiosk (the flight was part of an overall ticket bought on Air New Zealand). Only one checked bag per ticket, but we had an extra bag because of the international legs. An employee got us checked in, bags tagged, and convinced us to carry on one more bag."
Pros: "Crew and staff were very nice. I got lucky and got the whole row to myself."
Cons: "More space in Economy, and to have the passenger in front lift up their seat during meals. It's very hard to eat with the tray down when the person in front has their seat reclined all the way back."
Pros: "Same as previous answer!"
Pros: "Suberb crew. Not obsequious, just helpful with good anticipation."
Pros: "Always an enjoyable flight with a happy crew and comfortable flight"
Cons: "Alot of the check-in consoles were closed when we got to Brisbane which is the only way to check if you can't do it on line."
Pros: "Slightly wider seats"
Pros: "It got me from b to c"
Cons: "Significantly delayed hoarding for non technical reasons. Food was decidedly average. Seat pitch is just tolerable."
Cons: "I was seated in business class - the attendant gave my special order food to another guest and gave me something else instead. I could have gotten very ill from this, and notified the flight attendant who shrugged it off and walked off."
Pros: "Seat comfort amenities crew"
Cons: "No vegan meal options"
Pros: "Flight crew is great"
Cons: "Didn’t like the the whole check in process. None of the system worked. Manual check in all the way and took so long. Not enough staff to service."
Pros: "Qantas is a good reliable Airline, fleet of 747-400 getting a bit old. Too bad they will retire those costly planes as I have good memories going 20 times to Australia. Bring on the newer generation Boeing 787 dreamliners."
Cons: "Waiting at Brisbane Airport to fix the AC."
Pros: "Was traveling with my 1yr old and my in-laws. Crew could not have made it a more comfortable journey."
Pros: "Friendly efficient service. Lots of smiles. Food was great. Very comfortable seating"
Cons: "Toilet was very cramped USB charging plug not working. Pretty average range of movies."
Pros: "Qantas is always a great choice. Good food and service."
Cons: "Our bags were put on the wrong belt and we didn't receive them for over an hour."
Cons: "Flight delayed no updates in lounge then was rung to ask where i was as bostding closed. Told girl on phone on way bit thete was no flight status on tv in lounge... basically didnt believe me.. rude!!"
Cons: "The flight was canceled, after 5 hours of waiting for updates. So we are still stuck in Sydney."
Pros: "Delay on LAX to bNE was too late for us to make the connection. And our bags were lost as a result."
Cons: "i missed mt plane because i i forgot my passport!!!"
Pros: "Qantas provides a nice welcome when your board domestic flights in Australia like the one we took today between Brisbane and Sydney not just on their international flights. They greet you when you board, don't feel like a number like domestic flights in the USA be it American, Delta, United, or one of the others. They provide free premier movie access, serve a nice warm meal and drink, and make you feel welcomed - Keep up the great work Qantas, you could give the USA airlines lessons on how to treat passengers."
Cons: "Service was poor."
Cons: "Over all service was poor. TVs weren't working either."
Pros: "Service always attentive and genuine"
Cons: "Food was not as good as previous Qantas flights. Probably because it was catering to American crowd."
Pros: "No issues."
Cons: "None"
Pros: "Flight was comfortable, in flight entertainment was good, food was good"
Cons: "Nil."
Cons: "Great gluten free options! Thank you!"
Cons: "Flight delayed by 2 hours so I missed my connecting flight home. Had to wait at LA airport for 8 hours to catch another flight. Flight to sydney on August 26th was also 2 hours late leaving LA. My experience is not good."
Pros: "Staff was nice."
Cons: "I fly many airlines. I had never flow Qantas before. I was expecting it to be amazing and it was not. The seats are very uncomfortable and not roomy compared to other airlines. Food was terrible."
Pros: "I like food and service of crew members"
Cons: "Yes I like it"
Pros: "I don't injure about anyone else but when I fly such long distances you get anxious over being cared for. Stewards were great, food was great and plenty of it. Anything you needed just let them online and they will accommodate"
Cons: "We were delayed due to wheel problems which ultimately affected my connecting flight. Missed the flight"
Pros: "Service and food was pretty good."
Cons: "Didn't care for the movie selection. Not much of a variety."
Pros: "Complimentary meals/snacks, socks, toothbrushes, eye masks, blankets and pillows"
Cons: "The wing in the Brisbane terminal had no charging stations and only two toilet stalls in the women's bathroom."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by one hour. Because I had to collect my carry-on bag, I missed my connection by 8 minutes. I was re-booked on another flight and was five hours late getting home"
Pros: "I loved the food and snacks and the endless selection of movies and music"
Cons: "Leg space could be a bit better. When people put there seat back the back of their head was right in my face and so I had to recline mine back Hahaha"
Pros: "Everything was on time with very good service."
Cons: "Was seated in the center section and after getting settled and buckled in I kept smelling vomit and realized the seatbelt had dried vomit all over it. I couldn't get the flight attendant to help and finally got their attention and was told they couldn't do anything until after we were in the air. I was moved away from my family to another center seat. The flight had many open seats and we should have been kept together."
Pros: "Need new planes"
Cons: "Qantas didn't help at all with my missed domestic connection between LAX and ATL. Nothing."
Pros: "They serve drinks and snacks, which is over two nights these days the entertainment was good, and the seating was average."
Cons: "We have a layover in Brisbane. It would've been nice to have a direct flight from Cairns to Auckland"
Pros: "Friendly crew members. Departure time & arrival times were very accurate. Luggage was handled properly."
Cons: "Food taste was mediocre. Menu seemed to have a long list but delivered food did not match. No USB port or Electrical outlets to charge cell phones & Laptops."
Cons: "older aircraft"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "The flight got cancelled at 2:30am and then I had to try and find another flight rather than the airline automatically rescheduling me"
Pros: "Qantas service was certainly up to standard."
Cons: "The 747 we flew was older and noisy. Our trip to Sydney from LAX was aboard an Airbus A-380 ... much quieter, roomier, and equipped with the latest technology."
Pros: "Qantus flights were great, really appretiated the extra care they took in ensuring we made our connecting flights after delays and then compensated us for American Airlines stuff up with our luggage."
Cons: "Nothing. Probably the best airline flown"
Pros: "Quick and easy to board Overall everything was good Food was above average Crew were accommodating and friendly"
Cons: "Headphones poor quality"
Pros: "food"
Cons: "Not enough leg room. Flights are costly enough and it just seems wrong to upcharge passengers for more legroom. Legroom should be standard outside of first /business class."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "the seats are horribly squished and uncomfortable. It’s the only thing that makes the flight not excellent"
Cons: "Really packed together seats...more room. Crew spoke very loudly on plane...jarring"
Pros: "It’s nice to be in a plane fitted with modern conveniences. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "I didn’t have a window at all. The staff didn’t offer any snacks to us. My bag was the only one that didn’t make it while I had a plenty long layover."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "My reservations were messed up and I had to wait for another flight to my final destination."
Pros: "Nice smooth flight."
Cons: "Tiny seats. No entertainment offered."
Cons: "Seem that they turned off the air conditioning once we landed in the cabin got on the warm side."
Cons: "The flight attendant did not want to be there."
Cons: "The coffee could’ve tasted better."
Cons: "Todo excelente!!!gracias!!!"
Pros: "Nice to have more room in the premium economy section."
Cons: "Not even a smile from the crew and no help when asked. I don't expect Asian-style grace and class from an American airline, but I do expect good old-fashioned American friendliness, and there wasn't even that. Also hate the all-darkened cabin in the daytime."
Cons: "Notify the delay quickly"
Cons: "Our brand new stroller was damaged on our flight."
Pros: "Getting to my destination."
Cons: "Leg room, more room for carry on bags, coats, etc."
Pros: "New plane. Great movie selection. More stylish seats + bathroom. Overall very good and I think Delta has really made an effort to improve it's service. It's noticeable."
Cons: "Plane felt very dry compared to others. The electrical plug outlet jams right at around your knee level. Bread was cold and rock hard (seriously, can we not come up with a good solution for this?)."
Pros: "The closeness of the airport in proximity to my house as well as the ease of finding your gate and boarding."
Cons: "There were so many passengers and such a small plane. There was NO leg room and the lady in front of me wanted to recline her seat, when I’m already claustrophobic to begin with. It was hot and the air above our head was barely working. There was one flight attendant who was blatantly rude to an elderly lady about her bags under the seat before the flight took off. To make this all worse, I had to suffer through all of this discomfort for over an hour for a 25 minute flight."
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "- Put a special meal request. Meal request (vegan vegetarian) was confirmed on my boarding pass. However, when service came, flight attendant informed me that "I don't have any left. sorry". So I went 15 hours without food. - Ceiling light was "broken" and falling off. The light would not turn off, so I went 15 hours with no sleep. Overall very rude and low standard service."
Pros: "Left ontime great breakfast. Good service No complaints"
Cons: "I loved the trip No negative comments."
Cons: "Very cramped for overseas flight Coffee is never hot, never served in timely fashion"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight was fine."
Pros: "Friendly greeting and goodbye.goog entertainment."
Cons: "Too hot, attendant did not know plane."
Pros: "Best part, no one sat in the seats next to me so I got to lay down and sleep. Staff was nice, food was fine."
Cons: "This flight was good"
Cons: "They ran out of overhead space we had to check a carry on bag. My video monitor didn't work so that was disappointing."
Pros: "The plane was newer and the flight itself was good"
Cons: "Poor service onboard. Flight attendants showed little care and were curt. Ordered halal meal but were given vegetarian. It was bland and tasteless. My wife ordered drinks that never came. The armrests were stationary adding to the discomfort. Unfortunate how the international service experience is so much worse than domestic."
Pros: "good job over all"
Pros: "The ticket agents and other airport personnel were tremendously understanding and helpful! As a matter of fact, a few said this happens more often than it should, which is sad and shocking! Had it not been for their help this would have been much worse!!!"
Cons: "Our original flight included a connection that overlapped and needed to be changed. I brought this to the attention of Kayak/Aeromexico and the flight appeared to changed for our entire party of six. When we arrived to depart from Akron-Canton there were MAJOR issues with Delta acknowledging the change on their end. We waited at check-in for an hour and half before this was resolved. This also happened when we left Cancun and almost missed our flight. Our daughter also had to put on stand-by in Atlanta due to this fiasco. We spent another two hours working with Delta customer service trying to get her a seat on our flight back to Akron-Canton. Had we not been to Cancun airport extra early AND had our flight delayed in Atlanta we would have missed both flights. This was without a doubt the worse experience we have ever had!! It should have been caught and resolved before I ever had to get involved. I am very disappointed and unhappy with the service offered for the tickets we purchased. This was extremely stressful for my wife and kids and tarnished our vacation. This was totally and completely avoidable!!! You can and should do better to service your customers!!"
Pros: "On time take off."
Cons: "No comments"
Pros: "Call back service was best part."
Cons: "Booked ticket through venture card points. This meant that the email address and phone number to contact us in the event of changes was mediocre information. I was informed from Tripit that the flight was delayed, not by Delta. Reservation personnel took logical course of action to find new flight for connection that we could make because of delayed initial flight. I would recommend that they first see if there is an earlier initial flight that the customer could make, then look at finding later connecting flights. We found out about delay 8 hours prior, so we had plenty of time to get to the airport earlier. Total delay required me to take additional day off of work."
Pros: "Boarding was quick, gate agent upgraded my middle seat to an exit row window for free (or so I thought), decent movie options"
Cons: "Some of the crew seemed a bit grumpy, was not given the seat I was told I got, not much leg room in economy, was given wrong meal, first meal was taken away without being asked, second meal was stale (french toast), flight was a bit warm, bathrooms not stocked"
Pros: "As usual"
Cons: "Landing was a bit rough"
Pros: "My experience with Delta was excellent. Everything from checking in, boarding, flight, and landing was simple. Everyone I came into contact with was extremely helpful and courteous."
Pros: "The crew tried their best. The seats were average. The food ok."
Cons: "The entertainment is non-existent. Wifi wasn't even enabled. Four to five hours without ANY entertainment is totally unacceptable especially with teens and kids!!"
Cons: "Enhanced security procedures are onerous and caused the flight to be delayed 20+ minutes. Too many TSA staff at PLN doing too many things horribly inefficiently. Extra precautions (testing a Ziploc bag of cookies and several chocolate bars for explosive materials) did not make me feel safer or less inconvenienced by the theatrics of security."
Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Loud"
Pros: "I got off the flight at out side,but i forgot to carried my small bag .and then the Crew returned me the bag very soon.they were very kind,thank you very much."
Pros: "Direct flight"
Pros: "Crew was good. Flight was early."
Cons: "Poor booking experience."
Pros: "What I USED to like was the no hassle, no problems getting the tickets right through landing on the tarmac."
Cons: "I had a family emergency and because I had used a mileage ticket (as opposed to a paid ticket) I was told that I needed to give them 72 hours notice. I tried to explain that I had no control over the situation. It fell on deaf ears. I was so upset and frustrated that I could barely speak. My miles are now lost as the entire round trip ticket was cancelled and I have no way to regain all those miles that I wasted. It was the first time Delta did not come through for me and I must say, it's left a very bitter taste in my mouth. I couldn't believe that there isn't some provision (there is if I had paid for my ticket) and have lost all those miles that I use to fly Delta. So much for customer service."
Pros: "how short a flight it was!"
Cons: "nothing to complain about."
Pros: "Delta automatically rebooked our flight due to delays. We were rebooked on Air Canada"
Pros: "Delta Studio"
Cons: "Food choices were not appetizing."
Cons: "We were arbitrarily re-seated due to equipment changes, back and forth and lost our original seat selection even though we wound up on a plane with the original configuration. An international call wait of 1.5 hours was required to just get us back into the economy plus section that we had originally paid for, Amsterdam check-in was chaotic. In-plane staff was not at all helpful with our desire to get seats on the outside rows of our section."
Pros: "I liked that the plane was newer and the box snack was really good."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Cabin crew were excellent and so friendly and down to earth."
Cons: "The seats are very hard but I find this with all the airlines now"
Pros: "When I finally was assigned a seat (after my "Runaround"), I got a slight upgrade: Row 12 was a roomier seat and I got a choice of fruit for a snack."
Cons: "Runaround by gate agent: The gate agent was located about 15 yards from the actual gate. I waited there 20 minutes before anyone showed up, to get a seat assignment. When she showed up, she said she would not give seat assignments for another 15 minutes, so come back then. When I came back she said she wasn't giving seat assignments; go see the person checking in boarding passengers at the gate. That agent said she couldn't give me a seat, but watch the monitor for my name for seat assignments, then come back. Why couldn't the first gate agent say that instead of giving me the runaround and wasting my time???"
Pros: "Flight departed on time, arrived early! Boarding was smooth and effortless. I absolutely don't mind paying a little extra to fly on Delta vs the "low cost" carriers. Thanks Delta!"
Pros: "Entertainment was fine."
Cons: "Food variety for lactose intolerant. Crew was bare able."
Pros: "The Airbus A330 business class seating was more spacious and comfortable than the Boeing 767 I flew to Paris from ATL."
Cons: "Lost luggage, 4 hours late, missed connection, had to re check in, etc."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours because they had No crew to operate the flight! Such poor customer service on Americans part as well. No answers and rude agents when you tried to ask any questions"
Pros: "The speed at which everything was handled."
Cons: "It was great"
Pros: "The crew was great, the pilot was talented and the on boarding process was quick and smooth."
Pros: "Nothing. The plane was late. The WiFi didn’t work. The plane was hot in 90 degree weather and after travelling almost 19 hours I needed a little comfort."
Cons: "At least make the WiFi better."
Cons: "Tray table was dirty"
Pros: "Friendly, professional, polite, perfect."
Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "On-time, 20 minutes early!"
Pros: "Perfect!"
Pros: "Very attentative crew"
Cons: "Charging for WiFi"
Pros: "Great crew, good food served several times. Entertainment was very flexible."
Cons: "Getting baggage took an hour"

Pros: "Boarding as quick and efficient. Staff were friendly and courteous"

Cons: "Cabin crew seem frustrated and don't like the work"
Pros: "Entertainment system was great."

Pros: "Audio was good movies can be heard and understood."
Cons: "No toillt paper,dirty not refreshed for a 15 hr flight. Back row neverhadfood choices and served cold coffee.should start at back also."
Pros: "Always on time and always comfortable."
Pros: "Like the drink & snack bar that is always open. Crew kept bathrooms maintained reasonably well."
Cons: "They were out of some of the drink and food options. The Vegetarian special meals were poor."
Pros: "It wasn't bad for an American based international flight, but also not wonderful. Crew was great. Snacks were good. The extensive entertainment options were great and enjoyed extensively."
Cons: "The vegetarian options were AWFUL. Like, really really bad. Seats seemed smaller than previous flights."
Pros: "We flew with 4 different airlines on our trip to New Zealand and American Airlines was by far the best. We were comfortable and had plenty of good food and free entertainment. I would fly with American Airlines again."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."
Pros: "The crew is good"

Pros: "me and my wife, enjoyed the flight. flight crew served very very well."
Cons: "no complaint so far."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "American Airlines gave away my upgraded seat that I paid for. Eventually gave a refund, but was unapologetic."
Pros: "Great flight"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Everything was great. Slept the entire flight."
Cons: "We were waiting for 6 hours then our flight got cancelled. We got another flight which is in the second day !! And I am going back to MIAMI on Sunday 7:00 am . What a bad airlines!!"
Cons: "I have dietary restrictions and called Qantas and ordered a special meal. Little did I know I was supposed to call American Airlines so I never got a meal I could eat. Apparently Qantas doesn't relay the meal requests to American. Awful service!!"
Cons: "Flight from Ny to Detroit was delayed for 2 hrs. Coming back was worse after multiple delays, they cancelled the flight. they put me on a flight for next day with 2 connections which will reach ny almost 20 hrs later, no aplogises, no hotel room. After more calls put me in another United flight later that night which also finally got cancelled. I had to book a new flight with delta and paid $460 on the spot for that. Still awaiting my refund from American for the return leg which was cancelled and left a lady traveling alone stranded at Detroit airport in the night. Apology or compensation -- forget it, you will never get that! Only now if they can refund my cancelled flight..."
Pros: "The entertainment system and wifi price were great."
Cons: "We prepaid to select our seats and when we went to check in our seats had been changed. No apologies or effort was made to fix the situation. They said it happens all the time. They should never charge for seat selection if they do not honor it! Total rip-off"
Pros: "Excellent flight service; good meals, comfortable, enjoyed the wine and beer as drinks and with meals."
Pros: "Flight was safe and early then estimates timd landing"
Cons: "Meal is not enough for older people (my mom over 60y) then i think that is not enough to adults too Meal is not good tatste like before when fly with quatas only No appetizer like before too fly with quatas we can eat 6 - 8 times include snack"
Pros: "Finally getting to my final destination and out of DFW."
Cons: "The flight was originally scheduled to take off at 8:20 pm, but due to several delays did not end up getting off the ground until after 11 pm. After being in the air for about 45 minutes we were informed that there were issues with the engine and that we would be turning around and heading back to Dallas. By this point it was after midnight, and although I was appreciative that safely is a priority, there was no communication as to what the next steps were. After landing we were finally told that we would have to deplane, and after we sat around the gate for awhile we were informed that the flight would be delayed until 5 am. Being 12:50 am at this point a hotel would have been nice, but we were informed that AA was "out of hotels" but that if we wanted we could have a $12 food voucher to use at the one restaurant that was open several terminals over. The AA employee assisting in handing out the food vouchers seemed extremely unapologetic about the situation which didn't help with the frustration everyone was feeling. I will not be booking with AA again, and will be passing along my negative experience to family and friends. It is worth spending the extra money on a ticket for an airline that is more reliable with better customer service."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable and lots of leg room in the priority seat I purchased in advance"
Cons: "Very bad food"
