Airline reviews

Cons: "Come on, business class is better in the train than in a plane? My foot was a box of 20 small chips, sausage and a very small candy"

Pros: "Good variety and quality meals during the flight as well as a super array of entertainment"
Cons: "The seats lack cushion so a 7 hour flight gets quite painfully after a while"

Pros: "As always the Delta crew was super friendly and helpful and made the trip very enjoyable."
Cons: "Everything was perfect"

Cons: "They ran out of food by the time they got to the back of the plane."

Cons: "I had a tight connection, but made it to the gate in time. I walked down the jetway to what appeared to be a locked door, with no one there to guide me on how to board. It turns out there was a stairwell at the end of the jetway, which was to take me to a bus on the tarmac. This was very stressful."

Cons: "Seat was old and killed my back. Paid for a comfort plus seat, but from what I could tell it was no different that economy. Still had to gate check my single carry on, no entertainment system, no in flight texting. I felt ripped off"

Cons: "We always board with Sky Priority but the agent took us off the line until Comfort Plus boarded. It was embarrassing to my husband and myself."

Pros: "Smooth, efficient and timely."
Cons: "Seats weren’t assigned until at the gate even though checked in 18 hours before. Bag drop was horrible. No self service. Was inline for about 45 minutes."

Pros: "Everything was perfect!"

Pros: "I liked that is was a short flight"
Cons: "Plan was old. Seats not comfortable. Plane not clean. Flight attendants not attentive. A lady stored her carry-on on the floor in front of her and she was in the emergency row! Attendant walked by before takeoff and said nothing! Really?!"

Cons: "The international flights plane was much older - janky outdated screen that’s hard to use, zero leg room, and usb outlets that didn’t work. Also the WiFi kept dropping. The delta staff, food service and nice extras like warm cookies and towels were excellent."

Cons: "Working USB ports. On time departure."

Cons: "Flight was delayed and completely packed so our family could not get seats together"

Pros: "The food. And services."

Cons: "Boarding process."

Pros: "the crew was excellent the boarding was satisfactory"

Cons: "I thought there would be more new releases to watch, but overall the selection was good."

Pros: "Everything good"

Pros: "Early warning about little overhead compartment baggage space. Short flight made shorter in air."
Cons: "No enough carry on baggage space"

Pros: "When I finally got off the plane"
Cons: "Everything. No instructions, no pens or pencils, ignorant staff. Got to Cancun and waited 2 hours with no directions to just go they immagration. The forms were in Spanish and the staff could not translate. I’ll never fly Delta again."

Pros: "Delta’s notifications are very timely and helpful. They even tell you when your bags are on the plane and at baggage claim."

Cons: "The flight was 2.5 hours late making me miss my connecting flight and I didn’t receive a refund for the comfort seats I paid for but didn’t get."

Pros: "The whole crew was great and very accommodating"

Pros: "They ran out of salads so that was a little disappointing."

Cons: "Nothing, the flight was a rare perfect 10/10"

Pros: "Quick and easy."

Pros: "On time. Seat upgraded seat to Delta Comfort plus, courteous flight crew, music before take off and landing."

Cons: "Almost an hour late leaving the gate."

Pros: "Upgrade to ComfortPlus"

Pros: "I araised safely in New York and all my luggage finally arrived. I suppose that is good but so much else was bad, very bad."
Cons: "The morning of my flight I got a notice the departures time was changed by one hour later but to still arrive at the airport at the same time. So I ended up spending almost four hours at the airport before leaving. Boarding was a mess as "groups" were not called but everyone just rushed the gate in mass and we're let on. Staff were functional but looked and acted surly. It was a functional flight in that I arrived at my destination but it was not managed and I did not feel my business was wanted-only my money."

Pros: "Awesome customer service"
Cons: "No complaints"

Cons: "The plane was dirty. The grounds staff was complaining as we got on about having to work late."

Pros: "Good customer service"

Pros: "The plane went where it was supposed to go."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I did not board this flight as the previous one from Tokyo was late by an hour. Delta did not do ANYTHING to help us pass immigration and customs the fastest possible way. They sent us with the luggage to another terminal and had no signs or attendants to tell us where we recheck the bags. In the end we were late for the flight but Delta did not care!!! They tried putting me on a flight to SLC with a connection! Overall, I am VERY unhappy with them! Zero stars is what they deserve."

Pros: "Crew was very nice and accomodating"
Cons: "Entertainment system was very poor. Quality of sound and picture were substandard. Could not understand or see the movies. Seat were uncomfortable and boarding in Atlanta was very poorly handled. Probably will not fly Delta again although we have frequent flyer status."

Cons: "Crew allowed passenger to leave bag on floor between seats on emergency exit. This is a safety violation."

Pros: "Service"
Cons: "Comfort"

Pros: "movie choices are great"
Cons: "the people sitting behind me kept talking about dying from the aircraft, it makes me uncomfortable."

Pros: "Great!"
Cons: "Great!"

Pros: "The friendliness of the staff and movie choices"
Cons: "Seat space"

Pros: "Very late flight. Left on time, arrived 25 minutes early! Cabin crew were friendly and cared for everybody's comfort. They distributed a lot of extra munchies. They had real almonds instead of the usual 1/3 ounce peanuts, isn't that wonderful? Lights went off early and stayed that way so that the passengers could easily sleep through the flight. Uneventful flight, and therefore enjoyable."
Cons: "I had chosen 10C in the Comfort+ section of this MD90 plane. I did get my knee bumped more than once. I still like the seat because I can stretch my legs, but people should be aware of the bumping issue; it can be rather painful, and you do not get an apology."

Pros: "Nice power nap, quick flight!"

Cons: "Very small spaces for everything."

Pros: "Being interviewed as I waited in line to check my luggage. Personal touch and felt good safety screening. Bottle of water given out. The friendliness and helpfulness of the crew. I was in the back of the plane. Very cheery despite the masses of people."
Cons: "Seat size small. Although I appreciate the serving of food during the flight, felt a lot of junky carbs and sugar."

Cons: "Did not have the movie that showed in the sky magazine. The touch screen didn't sense touch very well."

Pros: "Overall i was comfortable. I appreciate that they serve tea & it's not old & bitter tasting."
Cons: "we started to board 10 minutes before scheduled take off so we were late."

Pros: "La atención de la tripulación es la mejor que he visto. El servicio de alimentación es muy bueno."

Cons: "I couldn't put my seat back properly because the man behind me was too big. Please put big people in spacious places its more comfortable for all."

Pros: "Nothing was good, Soeacial meal Asian food was pathetic no taste completely bland. Boarding was chaos, too many confusions and crew was clueless. Will never fly A380 again as there are too many passengers and airline don’t know how to handle. On arriving in DEL the baggage room 2:30 hrs to come. Totally disappointed. Lufthansa has no control whatsoever they don’t even care."
Cons: "Everything related to flight could have been better. I have flown Lufthansa multiple times in the past never had such drastic issues like this time. Completely disappointed. Should have booked Qatar instead."

Pros: "Great"

Cons: "Best airline! More space between seats. Great service. Great meals and snacks and overall excellent experience! I've travel a lot and no other airline in North America comes close! Thanks!!"

Cons: "N"

Pros: "The food was better than most other airlines"
Cons: "The boarding process is confusing. Checking the passports separately in the same area boarding lead to a lot of congestion and confusion. The boarding pass reading machines often didn't work. It looked like passengers in higher classes couldn't use the economy machines."

Pros: "I paid to go with Lufthansa airways not with United Airways. And I came to know the day of the flight that I was to board United airways. Really disappointed."
Cons: "In the international flight United Airways charge for the Wiskey liquor. And that is ridiculous."

Pros: "Everything, I love Lufthansa"

Cons: "Seats are super tight and very uncomfortable for tall people."

Pros: "I booked with Lufthansa, but this was a United flight. I prefer United's boarding process with multiple groups to Lufthansa's single group. Lufthansa's leads to a very very long line 20 minutes before boarding starts."
Cons: "United had fewer movie options, fewer meals, and worse food than the Lufthansa flight we took when we traveled to Frankfurt. It was also delayed two hours due to mechanical issues. I will have to pay more attention when I book next time to avoid United flights."

Pros: "Crew was good"
Cons: "No entertainment at all, food was bad"

Pros: "Clean new Airbus 380. Nice crew"

Pros: "Food was good but not enough."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working."

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."

Cons: "the plane was late boarding and some on board had tight connections. crew were aware but didnt let us leave first.we barely made our connection as we had to go through security in Munich. stress could have been avoided by letting us deplane first."

Pros: "Airy plane. on time. Good service. Flight wasn't full"

Pros: "Can I say basically everyyyyyything. The meals were amazing with respect to taste and the timeliness of them. The crew was extremely courteous and kind"
Cons: "Just typically being on a plane not much can do about the space in economy"

Pros: "Food and boarding"
Cons: "Flight was 1h40 late. Upon arrival we parked at a gate, but had to be bused. And it was raining"

Cons: "TV screens were old. Its response to the touch was iffy. It used to detect the touch point correctly sometimes but not other times. Often it took quiet some time to read and start something of my choice, which was quiet frustrating."

Pros: "They’re very polite persons"
Cons: "The way they treat people"

Pros: "I believe Lufthansa does more than the majority of other airlines for economy class passengers."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like."

Pros: "The crew was more helpful than the transatlantic flight."
Cons: "My seat. It was right behind the first class and as the crew rushed to serve them, they threw the separating curtain at my face as I was sitting on the corridor. It was so frequent I couldn't sleep and the passanger did the same."

Pros: "Every time I fly Lufthansa I am super pleased with the food. All other aspects fine too."

Pros: "Good plane and service"
Cons: "Ticket check in was unclear, apparently we had to verify our tickets at the gate but there was no sign or previous instruction from the check in counter. I waited through the boarding line only to be told to first verify my ticket. My bags were lost on the Madrid to frankfurt flight, the first part. Unacceptable, if the airline can not schedule flights at their own hub that guarantee swift transfer it us pathetic."

Pros: "Stewardess enjoyed her work encouraged us to take better seats. A full hot meal."

Pros: "hot food and some complimentary alcoholic beverages"

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "There was nothing I did not like about my flight"

Pros: "Luftahnsa is great. I can’t seem to get our system to recognize the two Condor is abysmal"

Pros: "Punctuality"
Cons: "No entertainment"

Pros: "Arrived on time, crew was friendly, was pleasentelly surprised that they are serving food on such a short flights in Europe."
Cons: "Boarding was bad. Gates werechanget multiple times (morethan twice) had to walk back and force, back and force thtoughehole terminal B"

Pros: "Although the departure was a little bit bumpy, the snack was tasty!"

Pros: "there was food on the plane, which was quite o.k. and the crew was very friendly."
Cons: "Flight was delayed as it arrived too late. the boarding therefore, was a bit hectic, especially as Lufthansa does not make boarding according to zones or group numbers like most of the other major airlines."

Pros: "Very organized"

Pros: "This was actually a United Airlines flight connecting to a Lufthansa flight in Munich. The crew was friendly and thanked us individually for flying with them as we prepared for landing."

Pros: "There was very little if anything positive"
Cons: "Delays led to missing connecting flight. Delays could've been avoided. Staff were unhelpful, noncommunicative and poorly informed."

Pros: "Everything! The food was nice, I liked the entertainment too!"
Cons: "That my fellow passenger took some of my limited space due to being obese:("

Pros: "Smooth flight , excellent crew"
Cons: "Entertainment was boring , screens freez and small"

Pros: "Flying from San Francisco to Madrid via Munich in economy class. All very good in general, in fact the best experience compared with other airlines I have used in the past for the same trip. Vegetarian meal was good, but only on the long leg. Munich to Madrid was not possible to choose the special meal, but that is not that important for me, so I eat what I could and that was good enough. The crew was super nice. The plane is huge, toilets are literally 'downstairs' and extra room to hang out. I will definitely choose Lufthansa again for my trips to Europe."
Cons: "If you want to reserve a seat in advance you need to pay for it, that's the only thing I didn't quite like because I found it after I bought the ticket. It was not mentioned clearly in advance, and it felt like an afterwards surprise, really? I paid for it anyways. For me it is worth it to make sure I get a window seat on the long leg flight."

Pros: "Nice flight. Wish all flights were as nice as this."
Cons: "They maintain the economy class nearly at 30 degC...hot."

Pros: "Extra luggage at not extra charge. Good food... Love the crew"

Cons: "n/a"

Pros: "LOVED the fact that the business class seats lay back almost flat---much more comfortable. The flight attendants were very friendly and actually had a good sense of humor when appropriate ; ) Pleasantly surprised at the food choices and delighted that the drinks were all free, including the adult beverages, even for the economy seats that we were in on the way back..."
Cons: "Wish the seats could lay back a little bit more in the economy seat area..."

Pros: "Friendly staff and comfortable trip"

Cons: "Nothing. Flight was amazing"

Cons: "Klm is the best, even on a 40min they served small breakfast."

Pros: "Comfort"
Cons: "Internet"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Transavia does not serve anything complementary, not even water. A flight between two countries that is five hours long must be better than this. I was not aware of Transavia doing that before I booked. I will never fly with them again"

Pros: "Very friendly and responsive crew. Announcements from the Capitan and chief of flight attendants are very informative and comforting. Seat positions: very good leg room (even in economy)!"
Cons: "Newer airplane, as 747s are kind of outdated now, especially for long distance flights. But overall had good experience with KLM"

Cons: "Time"

Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Can’t think of anything"

Pros: "Crew were great"

Pros: "No delay and nice staff"

Cons: "There was no wifi on flight"

Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Seat comfort"

Pros: "Amazing services .. on time just exactly .. I feel really happy onboard KLM ❤️"

Cons: "We were changed from KLM to Airiltalia without any information sent so only because I tried to check in did I find out the flight on KLM was cancelled and we were changed to Airitalia. The Airitalia flight was very mediocre."

Pros: "yes"
Cons: "not really"

Pros: "My seat at the window was great and the staff really friendly and courteous!"

Cons: "Economy seats don’t recline enough."

Pros: "The crew!!"

Cons: "Entertainment went out mid flight. Had to be reset off 30 mins but cam back up"

Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Very small seats with no leg room and very little room on either side. The food was bad - even when compared to other airplane food. Plane is kept too warm."

Pros: "Seats were comfortable and there was enough room for hand baggage. I slept during the flight so do not have opinion on entertainment."
Cons: "Not able to charge my digital devices. When serving beverages and food, the same flight attendant missed me a few times. That was annoying but other attendants were very nice."

Pros: "We were fed a nice pasta meal and offered drinks twice. They also gave a muffin for desert. The flight attendants were very nice and attentive with cheerful smiles. I wish every airline had service this good!"

Pros: "Able to fly direct to ansterdam"
Cons: "Have to lay over on the way back. More expensive than other airlines."

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"

Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."

Pros: "Crew"
Cons: "N/a"

Cons: "The streaming service didn’t work"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Very friendly service!"

Pros: "The staff was extremely pleasant. Food was good!"
Cons: "Have no complaints"

Cons: "Flight way delayed 3 hours. Staff gave no information and wouldn't help rebook us onto other flights. They gave us food vouchers 2 minutes before we finally boarded, so we couldn't use them. The food on the plane had spoiled so we were all starving on the flight, and we all missed our connections. Horrible experience and wouldn't fly with KLM again."

Pros: "I was pleasantly surprised they had a snack service on such a short flight. The flight attendants were very friendly"
Cons: "Amsterdam customs is the most disorganized I have ever seen. With the number of tourists entering the country you would think they would have done something about it. There were only 2 customs agents!! One for all passports and 1 for all passports. We were in the customs hall longer than we were in flight!"

Pros: "Loved the service...everything was excellent"
Cons: "The bus class seat was a bit narrow at the feet"

Pros: "great choice of entertainment content, friendly crew"

Pros: "They were awesome."

Pros: "Professional, friendly service. Punctual, safe flight. Comfortable, spotless airplane."
Cons: "What is there not to like about KLM? I cannot find anything."

Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"

Pros: "Crew was friendly, and the food was better than the usual KLM fare."
Cons: "The "new" seats were hard and uncomfortable. Avoid any kinds of seats near the bathroom in a configuration with 3 abreast next to the windows. The "aisle" seat is essentially a "waiting area" for the rest room."

Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly, but they only had limited resources to work with."
Cons: "Worst aircraft I have been on in years. No wifi or entertainment, no power outlets, only bad wine/beer for a 3+ hour flight is mediocre at best..."

Pros: "Good flight, we got a nice snack despite it being a short flight, the staff was great."

Pros: "I was upgraded to business class because I had to fly home early after I suffered a crushed wrist and broken arm while in Spain. I could not have made it through the flight without the extra room and pillows and my daughter by my side."
Cons: "The stewards and Stewardesses were very unfriendly. I was in so much pain and not one person asked if there was anything they could do to make the flight more comfortable. Just the kindness of offering would’ve been so nice. One girl just threw a water bottle in my lap!"

Pros: "Our MAD-JFK flight was delayed and we weren’t going to make our connection, so American Airlines automatically rerouted us through Philapdelphia, and got us to Indy just two hours and thirty minutes later than our original arrival time. I was very pleased wiht this service"

Pros: "Flight was under booked so there was plenty of room."
Cons: "Crew was unexpectedly loud/chatty with one another throughout the flight, even when things were quite and calm they were calling over our heads to one another and laughing loudly. Initially, it's an international flight from Spain and no crew members in my section atleast could speak Spanish. I had to help a passenger who only spoke spanish because the attendant kept repeating an order in english, just getting louder each time."

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."

Cons: "I hate American airlines. It is the WORST. We were held for almost 4 hours waiting for "maintenance call" then flight was cancelled. THEN it took two full hours to get back checked bags. By ths point it was 5 pm, had been at airport since 8:30 -- no food offered, no apologies, not even a glass of water. Of course, no flights back to US so I was stuck an extra day, completely messed up school and work. I THOUGHT I was booking with Iberia but it was a code share. I WILL NEVER fly American Airlines again!"

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Older plane"

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Offered ice after I burned and blistered my finger on the overhead light because it was so hot because it was so old. Pilot got me safely to my destination."
Cons: "-A line of agents asking for passports to even enter the area where American Airlines is located. Crazy security for no reason. -Tiny seats -No legroom for an 8 hour flight -No creature comforts or modern day technology like personal TV's or charging ports. Only 3 Small TV's along the the middle aisle. I remember flying on a plane like this in 1986. Played movies from 2012. Smurfs? Really? -No headphones offered -Burned my finger on the overhead light!!! Still have a blister!"

Pros: "Trip on time"
Cons: "N/"

Cons: "The internet wasn't working, and the flight attendant told me there was nothing she could do about it. The touch screens on the back of the seat had difficulty responding to touch. The headphone jacks and headphones they gave us on the plane were not compatible. If it twisted even a bit, it would lose the connection. I understand these may seem petty, but they are things we've come to expect on airline travel. If they aren't going to be there, please let us know when we book our tickets so we can plan accordingly. The flight attendant for my section of the plane was cold and a bit rude. I didn't want to ask her for anything."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. Upgrade from cloth seats was nice."
Cons: "The food wasn't terribly tasty or filling. Also, it was freezing - with a blanket, sweater and scarf on."

Pros: "The attendants helped you with all your needs. They were professional and fluent in the languages necessary to help the passengers. Very impressed"
Cons: "Good was good. Snacks and beverages were awesome."

Cons: "I paid hard-earned money for an expensive flight to Madrid. Not only were we very delayed on the way there, we were also delayed on the way back. We spent 3 hours back and forth on the tarmac stuck on an old bus in 100+ degree weather being delivered conflicting information, summed up to the seats being "broken". We got a "bathroom break" during which was talked to very rudely by the flight attendant at the gate, and then was almost left behind by the bus on the tarmac. Additionally, once we got onto the plane, it was extremely old (I'm talking no TV's, ashtrays on seats, filthy tables, dirty seats). To top it off, when I went to the restroom in the middle on the flight, I saw flight attendants drinking Tito's and soda in the back in the plane and talking loudly. I am not usually one to complain- but this was a particularly bad experience and terrible ending to my vacation."

Pros: "Everything was awful about the flight."
Cons: "The crew members were extremely rude, especially, Michelle and Micheal they should not be on long flights with such awful attitudes. None of the tv's, usb charging Ports worked. AA was the worst airline to fly overseas. Very disappointed."

Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew besides the message below. Still one of my favorite airlines!"
Cons: "Crew made too many announcements that were commercial. The volume of the announcements was out of sync with the inflight entertainment audio and hurt my ears."

Pros: "Nothing out of the ordinary, which for plane flights is about as good as it gets. No delays, no scares, no extra inconveniences."
Cons: "It's a transatlantic plane flight, not anything I'd describe as a fun experience."

Cons: "Was disappointed to learn after buying a British airways ticket that we were only on American Airlines flights. The seats were very uncomfortable and we did not get personal screens which seems uncommon for an international flight."

Pros: "Great service!"

Pros: "Food service was efficient and not delayed."
Cons: "Crew asked us to close window shades , so others could watch TV. It was difficult to find things under seat and reading light not as good as real light. Also we think 9 hours of darkness contributed to our difficulty in adjusting to time zone in states. My entertainment panel was very difficult to use and frustrating. It didn't respond to light touch, heavy touch, etc."

Pros: "Flight wasn't full so I had the row to myself and got to stretch out. Great selection of movies. Decent food."
Cons: "One FA seemed visibly annoyed with me; I'm honestly not sure what I did. I am a FA for another airline; didn't identify myself as such but always make sure to not be "that passenger." During two beverage services she did not ask me if I wanted anything but simply looked at me with disdain and sighed loudly. She wasn't rude; just not friendly and I never once saw her smile. She seemed tired and annoyed. I understand that feeling. I've been a FA for 16 years, still junior at my company, but it reminded me how important body language and facial expressions are when we work hospitality and customer service in the public eye. I hope everything is ok with her and I'm sorry if I did something that irritated her. I didn't get her name."

Pros: "New aircraft, very comfortable"
Cons: "The Flight Attendants were HORRIBLE. They were rude and dismissive to all passengers, One in particular (Suzette) actually made a passenger sitting next to me cry. I was embarrassed to be an American. It was a nightmare of a flight because of the flight attendants."

Pros: "The inflight crew was outstanding!"

Pros: "That the flight was not full and staff were just great very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "All good on this flight."

Pros: "Right on time."
Cons: "The aircondition was extremely cold. I was freezing"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Toilet was broken causing long wait time Tv's didn't work causing for a very long flight Many things in restroom were also not working"

Cons: "Just a suggestion, if you get new planes it is very comfortable when the seats have a bending headrest. It really helps to hold the head, especially nice for red eye flights."

Pros: "The crew was one of the best flight crews I have ever met! We had many of the same attendants on the flight back to MIA, as well. Give them raises!"

Pros: "Staff was pretty good, and while the food wasn't incredible, it wasn't bad."
Cons: "I hold the personal opinion that the headrests on transatlantic seats should be the sort that prevent one's head from falling to the side. It seemed like this was a domestic plane assigned to an international route."

Pros: "We were greeted by an AA employee after our connecting flight arrived and escorted through the various security steps to the departure gate. The vegetarian meal was very good."
Cons: "Leg room in coach is grossly inadequate. The entertainment system has poor controls and had to be rebooted."

Pros: "Everything was fine. Attendants very good."
Cons: "Everything fine."

Cons: "Not able to check backpack."

Pros: "Madrid to Charlotte personal was very good but Charlotte to Atlanta was completely the opposite."
Cons: "The Charlotte - Atlanta portion! Flight attendance were like doing a favor... very bad service."

Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "The entertainment touch screens are HORRIBLE! It can take up to a minute to get the button you are pushing to respond. It was this way on both AA flights I had (different planes). Also, when the captain or flight attendant chimes in with a message when you are watching a movie, the volume of the announcement is incredibly loud. Last, there was no WiFi available on the plane. It was a 9 hour flight and this is 2016."

Pros: "Nice food service."
Cons: "It wasn't British Airways. I had to hurry to American after being told at the check it was a different airline."

Pros: "Take off delayed, poor comfort, service was not good and the entertainment system was not individual"
Cons: "Take off delayed, poor comfort, service was not good and the entertainment system was not individual"

Pros: "Flight was not full so i got two seats to myself. Movie selections was great, and crew was great ."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "-AC was way too high. -Blanket was way too small and thin. Only cover half of my body and they didn't have any extra blankets -There was no free movie available on a flight that's over hrs long. -I got sick because it was so cold"

Pros: "Great service, good food, even had an ice cream break. Awesome."
Cons: "Gate assignment was 45 minutes from the check-in area. Would be nice to have that heads up a day or two earlier. We had enough time but the extra time that we thought we had built in."

Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive to Charlotte. I am still waiting for it one day later."

Pros: "The crew on this flight was amazing, very friendly, and really went out of their way to make it more pleasant"

Pros: "Very friendly staff."

Pros: "2:30 h late!"

Pros: "Nice seats, Entretenimiente, choice ,"
Cons: "In tourist the crew treats you like cattle ."

Pros: "No problems flight wise. Made it safely overseas."
Cons: "Grumpy and impatient flight attendants, particularly with the gentleman who only spoke Spanish next to me. Worse was the nearly two-hour line to check our baggage and check in for our flights! Total mayhem."

Pros: "Entertainment was good but the system had to be rebooted two times as it was getting stuck."
Cons: "crew was more about relaxing themselves vs. worried about passengers. Wrong priorities! They ran out of food choice by the time they got to our seating area which was at half point of the plane!"

Pros: "Flight staff was very nice. seats were nice. plenty of overhead storage room"
Cons: "i asked if my children could peek into cockpit and flight crew said no."

Pros: "The food and flight were great"

Pros: "The flight, boarding and arrival, was smooth and friendly."
Cons: "The notification through Kayak or Finnair was severely delayed."

Pros: "Very convenient"
Cons: "Plane was really old. Shook a lot from turbulence. TV was very old with the same 8 movies there and back. My screen was actually so dim (with the brightness turned up 100%), that I couldn't even watch anything on the way to madrid"

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Total confusion about tickets. Last minute shift to Iberian Airlines and time change. No coordination between airlines on boarding passes. Took 2 hours to check in at Madrid airport and still wrong. Worst airline food in over 40 years of flying. Miami airport filthy."

Pros: "The service was excellent, great entertainment options and the food was really good!"

Pros: "Movies"
Cons: "Better communication and more help from stewardess on stowing carry on luggage overhead. Seat comfort was bad."

Pros: "Flight was fine"
Cons: "Horrible service at Newark. Delta and Airport staff directed me to A terminal with my luggage. Waited in line for 1 hr only to be asked to go back and send my checked luggage then go back in the same line for another 20 minutes. Utter disregard to customers. Very rude staff."

Cons: "I can’t understand how airlines charge for the first checked bag in an international flight. I’ve traveled for more than 20 years and this is the first time I have to pay for that. I’m surprised they didn’t charge me for the oxygen I used"

Pros: "I was able to change my seat assignment."
Cons: "Five hour delay IAD to SFO, no entertainment working, no food provided... A really poor experience."

Pros: "United is terrible as usual. Dirty planes, poor service."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Perfect"

Pros: "Flight left and arrived on time. Food was average, horrible beer, limited soft drinks. No entertainment screens and only 3 charging outlets per 4 seats in row. Typical United."

Pros: "The crew was attentive and the food was good."
Cons: "Entertainment could have been better. Normally on a flight of this duration I would expect that there would be movie screens in the back of the seats that you could view a selection of movies to help pass the time. This would especially been helpful on the trip home where the flight left at 11:30 am"

Cons: "Crew was rude"

Cons: "Flight be on time, 4 hrs late"

Pros: "There was a good selection of movies, and the food was pretty good. The service was very good."
Cons: "I requested an aisle seat, and was in a middle seat. The 3 of us in that row, were all men of at least 6 feet in height, and over 200 pounds."

Pros: "Gusty winds in CID - the crew handled this quite well. Smooth flight."
Cons: "There was no UAL ground crew to greet us when we arrived on time (11PM) in Cedar Rapids. Poor communication."

Pros: "No food"
Cons: "No food"

Cons: "The plane did not have screens at the seats for an 8 hour flight. The Wifi app to watch films worked on and off. The crew weren’t the friendliest. The seats barely reclined. Would not recommend this flight."

Pros: "Great movies."
Cons: "Not enough food for 8.5 hours!!"

Cons: "There is an insulation issue in the wall next to 35F...Wall was covered in ice cold condensation."

Pros: "The boarding and seating happened in a timely fashion, and the crew was courteous. The lunch meal (I had requested Asian vegetarian) wasn't amazing, but not as bad as it could've been."
Cons: "The flight was not with Lufthansa, but it was actually through United, which was extremely confusing as I did my ticket confirmation, seat booking and meal choice through Lufthansa prior to my trip. To find out on the day of the flight that I had to check in and go through United was extremely annoying, as the counters are in different terminals and it was unnecessarily stressful. The flight itself was crammed, with absolutely no leg space, and not even enough space under the seat to stow my backpack (which had fit perfectly on my Brussels Airlines flight to Madrid). I had requested the Asian vegetarian meal, and the snack we got prior to landing was pretty much two slices of cucumber on a small bun (and an apple on the side) - extremely dry and hard to eat. I asked for mayo, but the flight neither had that, nor any other condiments to make the "sandwich" more edible."

Pros: "Comfy seats. Good entertainment. Good boarding.....Nice and professional crew."
Cons: "Ice cream was good but I don't like that as a dessert. Too much sugar. I;d rather another healthier option. Yoghurt maybe? If i can be picky, white wine could have been better."

Pros: "more room in the seats"
Cons: "movie choices were meh, but I guess that's a personal preference"

Pros: "EXELLENT!!"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "No movie anymore."

Pros: "It was on time and boarding was very efficient. I was seated near the back, but the middle seat was open. I appreciated the additional space. It was a nice perk for having to sit in the rear of the plane."

Cons: "Got stuck in the San Francisco airport and was promised a hotel room for the night when I departed Portland. When I arrived at SFO I was told sorry you have to just stay in the airport My next flight wasn’t until the next morning Shitty customer service"

Cons: "No Food"

Cons: "It was unclear that the check-in was through United in terminal 1, not through Lufthansa.So we were at terminal 4 and it took us an hour to get to check-in at terminal 1. Also the entertainment at my seat was not working so no movies for 9+hrs."

Pros: "Flight was on timw"

Cons: "Cabin was freezing and flight attendant told us there was no way to control the heating the cooling to a comfortable temperature. It will continue to be too hot or too cold."

Cons: "Now Sherry in any documentation I received did it say that my flight was operated by United airlines. I waited at ANA check in until within the 2 hour window and went around and asked someone at United who confirmed that they were partners with ANA."

Pros: "Although the flight was delayed nearly 2.5 hours due to a lightening strike that knocked out the ovens, the crew worked hard to make the flight comfortable."
Cons: "The airline kept pushing back the departure time. I received 5 different emails with different departure times. Once on the plane the food was sub-par (even for airline food) due to the limited oven functionality."

Pros: "Enough room for legs this time."
Cons: "TV on board not working during the whole flight. Food not good."

Pros: "Not much, the first class meal amenities were good"
Cons: "This was obviously an older plane and it showed, the seats were the worst, old and couldn't adjust the headrests and just uncomfortable, the only good part was there were only two seats to a row"

Cons: "The woman next to me had her computer angled toward my face with the brightness all the way up. On a red eye. It was rude, and she prevented me from sleeping at all on the flight."

Cons: "I had flown from Honolulu to Denver arriving at 6:30 am this morning having paid $25 for a checked bag. So had to get luggage and turn right around to check-in for Denver to Cedar Rapids and pay another $25 with the same airline because I wasn't able to check all the way through! So I feel I was charged double"

Pros: "Friendly service by the flight crew."
Cons: "No in-flight movies, tv or other entertainment. Not even some channels. Everything required payment. Wasn't that way on our trip over on what appeared to be similar equipment."

Cons: "Delay over 2 hrs"

Pros: "Food was actually pretty good."
Cons: "In flight entertainment system was broken my entire flight and my husband's was broken for a portion of it. It looked like the screen was seizing and I couldn't turn off the screen. The flight attendant tried restarting it multiple times but there was no other troubleshooting to fix it."

Pros: "No delay at all"

Pros: "Efficient boarding by the United staff. The people at the Madrid airport were so friendly and helpful! Many choices of newer films to watch."
Cons: "The food was not particularly tasty but that's not a shock. I've had worse!"

Pros: "food, entertainment"
Cons: "wifi"

Cons: "30 minute flight delay due to late inbound aircraft. Fortunately, we were able to make up for the lost time in flight."

Cons: "Overall horrible experience round trip. Issues with the planes caused delays leaving and caused my flight home to be cancelled. Flew American home. Will never fly Intied again. EVER!"

Cons: "United lost my checked in baggage and the customer service was so terrible and no one was helpful nor even cared. United totally ruined my trip."

Cons: "My baggage was lost and after a long day that's the last thing you wanna hear....but someone delivered it to me 2 hours away first thing the next morning."

Cons: "Bag. Took too long at baggage - Waited an hour after I arrived to pick up bag and take to customs. GOod thing I had 3 hours!"

Pros: "Everything was great we just had to sit for mechanical issues. Announcing ETAs is crucial for those of us getting picked up"

Pros: "There was no delay, everything went smoothly, we were informed at all times and crew was incredibly nice. This was a United fligth, not Lufthansa"

Pros: "Great food and entertainment options."

Pros: "The crew was very capable and efficient and fast with serving food and drink."
Cons: "I was still a little hungry after the second meal - the sandwich could have been bigger or maybe add something to go with the sandwich."

Cons: "Seats, lines, late"

Pros: "To have electrical outlets in the seats Good movies Blanquets"
Cons: "Flight attender - No very nice"
