Highly impressed with everything. All staff we encountered were nice and professional. Happy to have drinks back on flights!
Flight attendants have been very rude!
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather, understandable. We deplaned. This was the first short 1.5 hour leg of an international flight. It seemed clear that we would not make our connecting flights, which messes everything up with covid tests, quarantine, and all the many restrictions that airlines have insisted without thinking about the consequences. I tried to share my concern with the agent at American Airlines, knowing that it would probably be better to rebook and start all over for the following week or something. But his limited perspective, condescending attitude, and egotistical control behavior would not listen to me and was only concerned with getting me to the first stop 1.5 hours away. 7hrs later, stuck on that same plane which rerouted and refueled, I am now stuck in a city for 2 days since I had to rebook and start all over for missing my international connecting flight. Still have 20+ more hours of flying to go and nowhere closer to my destination. Hotel, rental, and new covid tests are all at my expense. Just wish American Airlines staff would listen and help, but if you don't shut up and comply to their every demand, they will ban you and ruin your life forever."

Cons: "Nothing that I can address everything was good"
Pros: "Very timely and efficient"
Cons: "Seats are really small"

Cons: "If the didn’t lose one of my bags on the transfer"
Pros: "Boarding process was easy and flight was smooth."

Cons: "Turning on all cabin lights at 1am to do a beverage service was absolutely insane."
Pros: "Flight was relatively smooth and arrived more than thirty minutes early."
Cons: "Flight attendants did the basics without showing any enthusiasm for their job or appreciation for the passengers in business class. Food service in business class was uninspiring as there was no element of "international cuisine" on a flight where some dining creativity would have been welcome."
Pros: "great stewardess"
Cons: "extremely cramped old plane with no wifi. Really folks?"
Pros: "Crew was fine but you can’t hear anything they are saying over intercom"
Cons: "Plane was late getting to gate then lightning kept luggage from being taken off and put on and on top of continued lightning, plane was 1 hr plus late getting out"

Cons: "no gluten/dairy free items"
Pros: "See above"
Cons: "See above"
Cons: "I was in such pain by the time I left this flight, the seats were horrible."

Pros: "Let me sit by myself. Sweet"
Pros: "Besides the seating problems everything else went smoothly"
Cons: "I was not able to get seats assigned to us before arriving at the gate. We got put on the very last row by no choice of our own. The seats are not designed for the average adult, possibly the worst ergonomics of any seats I've ever encountered. Extremely uncomfortable flight."

Pros: "Good staff."

Cons: "Free seats in economy class are way too squeezed for a 10 hours flight."

Cons: "Extremely poor food. Airline food is rarely enjoyable but I had two mouthfuls of my pasta and left the rest even though I was hungry. Dreadful "entertainment " system. 4 tiny screens over the centre row is seats showed the in flight movies. This on a transatlantic flight. What decade are American Airlines in?! The fleet look like they date back to the '90's at best!!"

Pros: "Friendly and accommodating attendants"
Cons: "I'm 6'3" and the seats were extremely uncomfortable for a 10 hour flight. No vegan options"
Pros: "Quick boarding and taxi. On and off the flight seemlessly."
Pros: "Original depart for London was 3:15, but when I called from Praque and my friend called from NY we were both told that depart from London is 2:15 and arrival is at 5 instead at 6. It was a mess!"
Cons: "Original depart from London was at 3:15 and arrival in NY was at 6pm. But when my friend called from NY about the arrival he was told that the plane will arrive at 5. I was told the same when I called from Praque. I have to stress that we mentioned the right flight #. When I came to the gate (exhausted) we departed after 3pm as originally scheduled. It was a mess! Otherwise the service was good."
Pros: "Quick boarding, no shuttle! Pilot very informative"

Cons: "I got same thing pretzel very salty"
Pros: "Got from Zurich to NY safely, on-time, and in one piece."

Pros: "Although my flight was delayed and I had to take 2 connecting flights to get home my baggage also made it home with me."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The flight was so loud, it was like driving down the highway with the windows down. AA automated messaging services called me to update me regarding my itinerary change when my 1st flight was delayed and provided wrong information which lead me to attempt to board an incorrect flight causing confusion and frustration."
Cons: "My original flight at 6 am wad cancelled causing my entire itinerary up be pushed back. Made for a very long day."

Cons: "The services and crews are great and meet the standard."

Pros: "Comfortable flight, very pleasant cabin crew."
Cons: "No flight entertainment at all."
Pros: "Friendly crew, modern aircraft"
Cons: "Better luggage Service"
Pros: "Service was kind."
Cons: "We sat on the plane for over an hour before take-off and were therefore late arriving in Toronto. Economy seats were cramped, as expected, and there were children screaming most of the flight. Food was pretty awful."
Pros: "Considering it was a tiny aircraft the flight went very smoothly."
Pros: "The price for the flight was right. Nothing can be done about the seat size. Food was ok. Comfort of seats ok. Not easy to recline. The etertainment helped me fall asleep, a Good Thing. Crew was pleasant, helpful."
Cons: "Pearson Airport is a miserable experience for travelers. Security there is very badly managed. Long, long long lines of people waiting without reasons given, getting lost because signage is poor, unable to understand the English of the employees, weeping exhausted children and innumerable check points for showing documents. GET ORGANIZED, Canada!"
Pros: "Plane was the new Air Canada 787, so it was excellent. Comfortable business seats. Nice sleep"
Pros: "Very nice crew and a quick flight to the states."
Cons: "The seating area in the gates was extremely crowded as passengers waiting to board. This is definitely the worst part of the Toronto airport. This section could offer more space, more seating, and more food and beverage options."

Cons: "The long layover."
Cons: "Paid for premium economy, only to find half of economy seats were empty and economy class had 3 seats for travellers to fully lie down to sleep."
Pros: "Made bereavement flight -- which was not acknowledged--a nightmare. Frankly no one gave a flying frig."
Pros: "the free movies. Plenty of offers of water to drink."
Cons: "The seats were so tight you literally felt like a sardine. These seats were by far the smallest I have had for an international flight. The breakfast wrap was not good."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and reclined better by having the bottom slide forward as well as back. Larger screen for each passenger. Larger windows which have adjustable shading rather than a physical shade. More frequent snacks and beverages than expected. In today's travel industry where it seems customer comfort is less and less a priority, This plane and Air Canada were a welcome and pleasant experience"
Pros: "Very pleasant flight; excellent entertainment options to while away the time. Excellent crew: food and comfort as good as it gets these days in Economy."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing. Announcements were difficult to hear in the terminal; there was a step requiring all passengers to queue up as if boarding but instead it was a passport/boarding pass check. The two queues were not labeled, there was much line-switching, and the passport-check lines blocked the terminal for travelers for other flights... The incoming plane was late; we wondered why this passport check could not have proceeded while we waited instead of delaying our boarding once our plane arrived."
Pros: "Nothing was done badly, but my flight out was with a different airline and I suppose that spoiled me."
Pros: "The leg room was fantastic. Cabin temp perfect."
Cons: "Food was okay. but better than cheaper flights. Hard to beat Swiss."
Pros: "Legroom and entertainment were both good. Food can be improve."
Cons: "Boarding was bad in Zurich, unorganized. Need improvement"
Pros: "The aircraft was very new and the food was good for airline food and they had vegetarian options."
Cons: "The boarding process was very unorganized. Roughly 20 people were not assigned seats and had to receive their seats at the gate. However when we all stood in line, the crew did not help anyone but talked with one another and then only one helped for about two minutes before disappearing. I was second in line and I stood there for over 30 minutes. Then once we boarded the flight, the crew was very rude when speaking to customers. Overall the crew was very unorganized and extremely rude."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The crew member wasnt letting me on my connecting flight which i was late for because of delays Air canada caused for the previous flight. Even though my connection was grounded for an additional hour. Worst airline ive ever been on."
Pros: "- Friendly and helpful crew - No turbulence - No major concerns"
Cons: "- Flight was delayed for over 20 minutes"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable..."
Cons: "Plane windows were really dirt... staff was a bit rude..."
Pros: "I always like to fly Air Canada for long international flights. Everyone has their own TV, where you can choose what movie/TV show you want to watch, or what game you want to play. You can also pause, fast forward, and rewind at any point, which is not always possible on other airlines. The food was also very tasty. We were served two full meals and a sandwich. The alcohol was free, which was lovely too. The staff were nice and there was plenty of leg room. Overall, it was a great flight."
Pros: "Very cool service, nice, modern aircraft, entertainment system"
Cons: "Small leg space in economy"
Pros: "Great cabin crew smooth take off landing and little turbulence . Also having in flight entertainment"
Cons: "Having to make a connection rather have a direct flight from Zurich to Philadelphia"
Cons: "Flight was cancelled. I had to rerouted through New York and missed connecting flights"
Pros: "That we made it there reasonably on time."
Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment unless you knew to get their app, before getting on the plane, limited leg room, bad food, no drinks on an int'l flight. Too bad it was the same price others charge."
Pros: "Smooth boarding, friendly crew, pillow and blanket both serviceable. Food was a little better than I expected for economy."
Cons: "Baggage handling ripped handle clean off new suitcase, both ends. Delays in departures from Dublin led to us using stairs off of plane on tarmac. Entertainment mostly dependent on app you can't download on plane if you're using wi-fi."
Cons: "They are so incompetent that they had us arriving in Germany on May 3 and connecting on May 2. We had to have the ticket rewritten TWICE."
Pros: "the crew members were very helpful.friendly and accomodating."
Cons: "no real concerns.If anything being a 3 and half hour flights snacks could have been served"
Pros: "Crew was sensitive to the demands of passengers. They were maintaining good amount of hygiene. I didn't get food when I was asleep, but, when I told about it, they quickly got me the food."
Pros: "Again, I felt we had excellent service. It was a small plane and one steward, and she did everything!"
Cons: "Very long line to get to security"
Pros: "I liked the flight when I got off the plane because it was over"
Cons: "The whole experience was horrible, the landing, the food, the noise, the unconfortable seats, the plane was too hot and especially the bad landing...never again...it was the worst trip I have ever taken and I fly 2 times a year."
Boarding gate door was closed on connecting passengers and we missed this flight
Cons: "Baggage claim at IAD"
Pros: "Good schedule"
Cons: "the commuter terminal in Dulles is miserable and chaotic, but not really United's fault"
Cons: "I'd really like to see specific baggage allowance written on the ticket or confirmation letter. That was very frustrating that it wasn't specifically listed. Especially with multi-city trip, having to go look up each leg and try to remember allowances, would have been better if it was just listed al"
Pros: "The crew was super friendly. The seats were ok but for a 12 hour flight nothing would be perfect."
Cons: "I think it went as well as possible. No delays in boarding and only short delay waiting for a gate at SFO. The flight crew were very friendly and drinks and food were adequate."
Pros: "lousy crew — one was too busy reading his newspaper to bother telling people who were waiting for the toilet that there was another unmarked toilet right behind where the people were waiting"
Cons: "a newer plane. the plane was so old that there were no monitors and the seats were very difficult tilt back (about two inches)"
Pros: "Uncomfortable worn seat. Too small."
Cons: "Plane smelled."
Cons: "Air conditioning was not working. Very hot on plan. Light switch above my seat was broken. Luggage crew cracked off one of the “feet” on my luggage. Overall terrible service and flight."
Pros: "FA did his best"
Cons: "Flight not cancelled"
Pros: "Everything about the airlines and aircraft and crew make you feel like you’re flying first class even when you’re not. The plane was immaculate, foot was gourmet (and A LOT of it!) and crew was professional, friendly and efficient. I will plan on scheduling all my international flights with Swiss Airlines when possible. We even flew on a shorter flight with them and still received a good sized meal."
Cons: "We were late to catch flight to Washington. Our lodges were lost and we have to wait over two hours till they find it."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 6 hours. No notification till early morning of flight. If known ahead of time would have stayed in France a day longer. Picked for security which was fine except stood in line for 1/2 hr. while those suppose to check us were sitting and laying around. Make me too late for helping my husband ( in a wheelchair) onto plane."
Cons: "My parents were traveling, they dont speak english and I verified with Austrian airlines that they would be assisted at the gates and that they had the correct visas for each airport they had a layover in. I was assured there would be no problems. Upon boarding they were not able to get on their flight. I have never had so many communication issues and frustrations in the middle of the night with an airline. disappointed."
Cons: "Not a kind service"
Cons: "Up graded seat but didn't get to board till last."
Cons: "The plane was over 3 hours late, and then at landing we sat for 30 minutes waiting for a gate"
Pros: "Excellent service ample legroom"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Pros: "The whole experience was good. This would be my favorite airlines in the future to travel anywhere"
Cons: "I would have preferred some more quantity of food"
Cons: "Mediocre service, cold bread, impolite staff"
Pros: "I upgraded to premium economy and was glad I did. Extra space and and empty chair next to me."
Cons: "For a 9 hour flight, food wasn't filling nor was there enough. I wouldn't have even minded paying a little extra for snacks but a small dinner and small sandwich as a snack was all there was. Plenty of drinks though. My day did not recline all the way, I only got it to move an inch or so."
Pros: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Cons: "Nothing!! And by the way this is the last time I travel with you guys. I couldn’t travel because of my itinerary doula -Bruxelle - Zurich- Washington Dulles . I was not told when I bought the ticket that I will need a visa to transit between Bruxel to Zurich. Now they told me that my only option is to buy another ticket . Thank God éthiopien Airline was more affordable."
Cons: "Long check-in time, bad in flight service, dalyed luggage arrival."
Cons: "My united app didnt find my flight;"
Pros: "Plane was delayed 87 minutes because the plane had maintenance issues that the air and did not organize and plan better. For their error, I missed my client and got fired."
Cons: "The airline not getting me on the Dayton-Newark then Newark-Rochester flight so I could get to my destination on time. The agent at the airport was not helping or listening. Now I miss my client loss a lot of money for the day and I got fired."
Pros: "Again, boarding was very quick and the flight did not take as long as anticipated."
Cons: "There was a leak from the overhead panel directly ahead of me. I had planned to do some reading on the flight, but after noticing the water was splashing on my paperwork I opted not to."
Pros: "Crew was great. They obviously all liked each other and that feeling was felt by me and hopefully the other passengers 767 seat arrangement across the rows is very good (2,3,2)"
Pros: "Entertainment was very good"
Cons: "It was freezing cold. Apparently something went wrong with AC system as even despite numerous complaints by passengers nothing could be done. Spending 9 hours in a freezing cold plane already has affected my and my husvand's health as we are both now coughing and with blocked noses."
Pros: "Service 0"
Cons: "Service is very bad"
Pros: "same as above"
Cons: "same as above"
Pros: "Good food and frequent water service. Pleasant attendant s"
Cons: "Malfunctioning seat in front of me"
Pros: "That i made it home"
Cons: "This flight is always late. And the original arrival time is late to start with."
Cons: "Departure was delayed. No explanation. The boarding area is crowded and confusing. The plane's bins were too small for roller boards so passengers had to carry bags outdoors in snow and terrible wind, to get them loaded. The Newark airport where the plane landed was miserable! Departure from Newark was worse than landing if that could be possible! Awful!"
Cons: "Boarding by zones causes passengers to have to stand longer while waiting to board, inconveniences them by having passengers seated in window and middle seats often arrive after the passenger in the aisle seat, and slows down the entire process because passengers settling into the front part of the plane frequently board and stow luggage while those seated in the back queue up behind them. Compared to boarding by row, the entire process is now one lengthy mess."
Cons: "The food was mediocre and drinks served a long time after the meal. I had a log (daylight) flight and attendants insisted that all blinds be down and then the lights were turned off in plane. No one was sleeping and most watching TV. I as a reader of books was inconvenienced by low light."
Cons: "Because of the short connection time the group of people including me made it to the gate a bit late. However the plane was still at the gate and did not leave for another 15 minutes. But they refused to take us on board saying t was too late, as a result: They sent us with the next flight to Chicago instead of Washington DC. My whole schedule was messed up as i had to fly through Chicago. My luggage was lost and i only received it 2 days later. Will file the complaint."
Pros: "The staff were good."
Cons: "I didn't like how we left more than two hours late. United always pulls this kind of thing. The flight was overbooked, so we weren't going anywhere until people volunteered to take later flights. To allow enough time for someone to volunteer, aircraft maintenance was 'required', a scenario I have seen on a few other United flights. Honestly, I will never fly United again and am cancelling my future flights in favor of taking the train instead. It takes eight hours instead of a theoretical 1.5 hours, but at least it is reliable and not much worse than the ACTUAL time it takes to fly United. Worst airline ever. Barf."
Pros: "Fortunately I had three seats to myself so I stretched out and got some sleep after the meal. Many movies to choose from for entertainment."
Cons: "Not even beverage service. Water only"
Pros: "I liked that the crew tried their best to make sure that everyone was happy. Key word was tried"
Cons: "Everything almost we was delayed by almost 3 hours. Crew members kept giving us false hope for no reason"
Cons: "They kept pushing back take-off, pretending we were going to board, and then rambled into the microphone so no one could hear what they said."
Pros: "Many selection of movies to watch. There were also a nice selection of shows to watch."
Cons: "The lunch services because they ran out of one the pasta section before they even got to my row. Also the landing was a little rough"
Pros: "Flight attendants were friendly and welcoming when service was provided. The food was delicious - quinoa salad was unexpected and delicious. Also enjoyed the ice cream at the end of the meal"
Cons: "The flight on the ticket stated it was a Swiss flight operated by United. When we arrived we asked which kiosk to check in and we were misinformed. It would be a time saver if the airlines would educate their employees on where the customer should check in."
Pros: "The flight was very smooth and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "Checking in at Zurich airport was a long nightmare especially using the terminals to get boarding passes (there were three, one was broken, and other people had such a hard time using those two that there was a massive queue and I worried I would be late!). Other than that it was very lovely"
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "Boarding from the rear of the plane would be more efficient and quicker. Most airlines already do this."
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: "The entire duration of the flight was incredibly uncomfortable. The temperature was incredibly hot."
