Top 5 airlines serving Tampa to Frankfurt am Main
Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "I like that there are multiple bathrooms onboard."
Cons: "The rows are so narrow between seats that your roll on suitcase will not fit. You have no elbow room in your seat. People who live in England are very rude and would not let those of us seated in front of them to deplane. Too bad there isn’t someway to make people wait their turn."
Pros: "Premium economy was perfect, smaller cabin with less people, great flight."
Pros: "The crew was amazing and effiecent. Had weather delays, bag got left, but got it the next day."
Cons: "I cancelled this flight online, then I called to let them know I was getting emails, but that I had cancelled. For two days I received emails about delayed flights and now this."
Cons: "at last minute itinerary was changed.. instead of routing through Brisbane, was now routed through Sydney. Flight from Sydney to LAX was delayed by 4 hours, then missed flight LAX to LAS... overall long delayed arrival. Checked the route through Brisbane, and those flights we're all there, departed and landed all on-time... so wondering what the reason was for the change of the itinerary without a cause (no cancel or delayed flights through Brisbane)"
Cons: "Good overall"
Pros: "Nobody are better hosts than the British. Great service, lovely people."
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Food was very good and plentiful. Entertainment was good. Overall the very long flight was better than expected."
Cons: "It took forever to board in Sydney with all passengers standing and waiting for 45 minutes and never being told what was going on. I resented having my passport and ticket demanded at least 4 times. A bit overkill and a power trip by security. Absolutely despise airport security...there is no uniformity."
Pros: "food was great!"
Pros: "We paid for ecomony x which gave us priority check in and boarding plus first meal. Very impressed, we had an exit row seat and the flight attendant who sat opposite us was extremely friendly."
Cons: "I wish the economy x seats weren’t located next to the toilets... it’s pretty bothersome with the noise, smells and light emitted"
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic offers good service at a reasonable price to/from the US to London. Good food service and unbelieveable number of movies and entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "The seating and leg room in economy classic were inadequate. We felt way too confined in our seats and the leg room was a joke. I am only 6' tall and this was unacceptable. We will try to upgrade for the return trip."
Pros: "Friendly staff, so much food/snacks were offered. Good movies available."
Pros: "Staff was very friendly, the plane was very clean. Loved the entire trip, except for our uncontrollable weather delay."
Pros: "Legroom, lovely staff and all round good flight"
Cons: "the food selection did not meet my diet restrictions. Found it hard to avoid due to hunger over the duration"
Pros: "The onboard crew were lovely."
Cons: "Stood at check in for over 30 mins with no staff in sight. Boarding was a disaster. Staff was not prepared nor organized and the crowds were unbearable. Upgraded seats were laughable and not worth an extra $60. Food was mediocre. Entertainment would have been good but GE touchscreens are so old, they were difficult to work."
Pros: "So much food!! They kept bringing food out the whole flight..The seats were great. It was a very comfortable flight"
Cons: "no complaints whatsoever!"
Pros: "Francesca was the flight attende t that I had most the most interactions with was very friendly and warm."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled ."
Pros: "in flight experience is above average"
Cons: "The computer system really needs a lot of improvement. We were checking in with our infant daughter and it took 50 minutes to check in with a senior person helping the check in person and phone calls to their technical assistance. We were told an infant is difficult in their system, and our dual national daughter was another layer of complication."
Pros: "Crew was very nice helpful and attentionate Entertainment had plenty of variety maybe not so many new movies but enough to find one you have not seen or classic you could watch again Food was good"
Cons: "We weighted our hand luggage at the counter and then they ask again during boarding little confusing"
Pros: "Met expectations."
Cons: "Things out of your control - time !!"
Pros: "No one would update that the flight was delayed. They would not even communicate as to why delayed and would not put us in a different flight. Absolutely no customer service. Disappointed and would not fly jet airways again . I missed my conference lecture today as I was late."
Cons: "No communication, nor will they tell you why it's late . Nor will they move you to another flight even wen requested"
Pros: "Good entertainment, food and in-flight crew"
Cons: "Because this flight was delayed it was a miracle (involving running til my throat literally bled) that I made my connection. Ground crew could not have been less helpful - even to my friend who they knew was trying to get home to attend a family funeral."
Pros: "Virgin atlantic is the best airline with Dreamliner"
Pros: "Helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "Delay at the airport due to system down where agents had to check in everyone manually"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, and helpful. I also liked that the exit row that I was given had more than enough leg room, the dinner was really good for airplane food and snacks were great also. The attendant that I had for my section also told me that all food and drinks were free so they gave me a few extra adult drinks here and there which is a plus for how long the flight was going to be. The movie selection is great also having some on there that are still in theaters is a huge plus."
Cons: "The boarding process seemed way out of order, they made so many mistakes and nobody knew what to do, then you have the pushy passengers that are sitting coach getting mad that you're boarding before them. Breakfast left me wanting something else, lets just say this if you are given the choice of something vs french toast, take the something."
Cons: "Food was awful. Sorry. Breakfast was unrecognizable. Landed hungry."
Cons: "My headphones and those of my neighbors did not work."
Pros: "first time I flew VirginAtlantic. Heard so many good things about it. It fact even our Uber driver was praising the airline on our way to the airport. But once onboard: - poor food (I mean 'survival kit' style) - entertainment station was not working - games feel like 20 years old - design (heavy red) now looks dated and suffocating - hostesses are more focused on their hairstyle than their customers"
Cons: "Back to Air France next time!"
Cons: "Seat cushion r not soft comfortable enough. R hard. Hard My butt"
Pros: "Crew is well trained and efficient. Lounge food and service are excellent."
Cons: "Podlike seating in business class. Someone thought the zigzag a way of ensuring privacy. In fact you can't talk to your travel companion nor look out a window. Seats are either up or down and only a crew member can operate them."
Pros: "airline staff was helpful, friendly and accommodating from ticket check in to flight staff."
Pros: "Dinner was fantastic! Excellent meal. Flight crew were terrific as well."
Cons: "Dislike the recent removal of onboard snacks. It's a very long flight. Nuts or chips or cheese and crackers would be very helpful. Had no idea this service was discontinued until way into the flight. Not sure why it was stopped. Btw I don't believe this was a Virgin Atlantic flight, I believe it was Virgin AUSTRALIA. Think you have names backwards on survey."
Cons: "Entertainment system was good, and I felt that you appeared to have more leg room in economy than other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was awesome and their service was great. I liked that they put snacks like fruit out to eat during the flight."
Cons: "The meals were terrible. I flew on VA a couple of years ago and the food was very good but it has really gone down since then."
Pros: "The flight from Sydney to LA was enjoyable"
Cons: "I was very disappointed that even though I booked through Virgin Australia when their partner Delta didn't get us to LA on time from Minneapolis, Virgin Australia said its Deltas fault, talk to them. They were not going to help."
Pros: "The crew was great with updates. Checking in was a bit confusing though as not all the crew knew what was up. It was a very crowded day so it was bound to be a bit rough. Of my last four flights to London Virgin Atlantic was the best!"
Cons: "Heathrow was a bit confusing and it took a moment to get my bearings. The crew was a bit disorganized but that seemed to get solved quickly."
Pros: "Great selection of entertainment. Crew was very accommodating. Food and drink service was great."
Cons: "Boarding process was slightly hectic."
Pros: "Overall, great flight. The gentleman in LAX waiting for us late arrivals from the connecting flight from MSP was very capable and helpful, going into action for us so we could make our tight connection, in which the others should have already boarded."
Cons: "Knowing where my bags were, and if they'd made it with me."
Cons: "I found the seats on this Virgin Atlantic A340 flight from LHR (London Heathrow) to LAX (Los Angeles), an eleven hour flight, to be unacceptable. The seats were very crowded. I am six feet tall, and was very uncomfortable all during the flight. I could not sit with my knees together. I had to spread my knees to sit comfortably. Holding that position for eleven hours was very uncomfortable. Anyone taller than me would have even more trouble. Also, every seat has a very large box underneath, I presume for the audio/video system. This is a terrible location. There is very little room to stow anything. But much worse, I couldn't straighten my right leg. All-in-all, I found the seat situation totally unacceptable. I will likely never fly Virgin Atlantic again because of this."
Pros: "The crew."
Cons: "No wifi was absolutely aggravating. Seat space was bad as well - very little leg room."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats, food was bad"
Pros: "Very attentive and friendly crew! The plane was nice and clean, nice purple tinted lights. They served us plenty of complementary meals, snacks, mints and drinks. The in flight entertainment was the best I've seen yet: movies, tv, music, games, all recent and easy to use. We will definitely fly Virgin Atlantic again!"
Pros: "The crew was very good with the passengers and attentive"
Cons: "The leg space is very tight, it was very hard to sit specially for longer flights it's not that comfortable"
Pros: "Pleasant, helpful staff at check-in and on flight"
Pros: "Friendly service. Safe, on time flight."
Cons: "Chicken lunch was just so-so."
Pros: "Good was decent."
Cons: "This VS25 flight, whatever airplane it was felt old and the v poorly designed "seat back pocket" sat so low and protruded out so much that it pushed against your knees. V uncomfortable."
Pros: "Courteous flight attendants; good cockpit crew"
Cons: "Delays kept getting longer. On the plane for three hours before takeoff. Seat very uncomfortable -- reclining function didn't work, and no extra space -- and had paid extra for a "comfort" seat."
Cons: "It was at a good pace"
Pros: "Poor service overall. Seats were just like in the economy area, not much different."
Cons: "Better service"
Cons: "We PAID $30/each to check 2 bags, both ways, so $120 total. Then at the gate, BOTH WAYS, Delta Gate Reps allowed people to check bags for FREE, & pick up at bag claim, just like WE PAID TO DO. NO MORE DELTA FOR US!"
Cons: "Delta Comfort isn’t so comfortable. Seats are too skinny."
Cons: "The website could work for starters"
Pros: "The entire flight was excellent, on time, great friendly crew, edible food, movies and options were great, perfect in every way. It was a little chaotic at flight loading on extra security, but I assume it could have something to do with it being on 9/11 and it was ultimately bound for NYC."
Cons: "I honestly cannot think of anything."
Pros: "Prompt boarding and departure."
Cons: "Refreshments and up to date airplane. Plane seem outdated and very loud. Flight attendants could use a friendlier demeanor"
Cons: "Being on time."
Cons: "Crew unfriendly."
Pros: "Crew was great. Planes with built in TV was even better."
Cons: "One really obnoxious kid kept screaming the entire time. Instead of charging for earbuds maybe give them out for those of us that don’t have any."

Cons: "Cleaner bathroom"
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Tight plane and late!"
Pros: "Dinner was good, entertainment also"
Cons: "Thought thecComfort Plus seats were not as good as Air Canada. Air Canada also serves Premium Economy the same good and drinks etc as Business Class. Did not feel special in Comfort Plus. Sorry just my comparison and opinion"
Pros: "I really liked it all."
Pros: "Friendly staff. Very comfortable seats"
Cons: "Everything. Flight got delayed, luggage was sent before i boarded the plane. Terrible service of Delta. Never again using Delta or going to Atlanta. Wasted two days already from my vacation..."
Cons: "The comfort of the seat, the food"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment options were nice, I enjoyed the flight status option, and the USB port was very helpful."
Cons: "Three hour delay due to wiring issues, cramped seating that made it impossible to get even the most basic of maps, and our flight attendant was upset that we didn't notify them that we were vegans in advance. We didn't know that they had vegan options, and weren't upset about not eating the in-flight meals. She was much more upset about it than we were and it made me uncomfortable refusing the food that I knew I couldn't eat. Other passengers even asked us if we had eaten anything. It was almost embarrassing."
Cons: "Paid extra for a seat that didn't have any extra leg room. The entertainment system was broken for the whole plane during the first 2 hours."
Cons: "Everything else"
Cons: "I am very short (5’0”) but there just isnt enough room i cant imagine what a big person feels on a 9 hour overseas flight."
Pros: "No entertainment and no food other than snacks."
Pros: "I told the crew I had a short connection time at a far terminal and I was worried because my seat was in the rear of the aircraft and they were able to move me up closer to the front to ensure I got off the aircraft quickly to make my next flight. That was amazing."
Pros: "Crew was great, helped us board fast after a delayed arrival and to avoid needing a crew change (FAA Regs)."
Cons: "Plane was a D-90? The plane was very loud with vibration noise at very high decibels during the whole flight. Because of the extended flight (3 1/2 hours in the air) due to a storm system, they should have offered more food to travelers."
Cons: "Flight was delayed ... wish I had received text notice instead of email so I could have enjoyed the extra hours of vacation instead of sitting at airport."
Pros: "Newer plane with entertainment"
Cons: "was a great flight"
Pros: "Not crowded. Short flight."
Pros: "Movie helped to pass the time this was the longest flight ever I was glad when it was over"
Cons: "I have nothing to complain about"
Cons: "The person sitting next to me what is not able to fit in their seat, therefore, he filled his seat and half of my seat. I don't think it's fair that I paid for a full seat and only was able to use half of my seat. I was incredibly uncomfortable the entire flight. I was pressed up against the window and against the stranger passenger that I did not know. By the end of the flight, my shirt and my pants are soaked with sweat, it was not my sweat."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and had great humor."
Pros: "I liked the WiFi and Movies. The flight crew was wonderful making a stressful retreat from Hurricane Irma a little better"
Pros: "Very clean plane and comfortable. Great friendly crew and very good service."
Cons: "Wifi service was slow but acceptable. Not a big issue."
Pros: "Boarding was very organized and quick. Slight delay taking off but not bad for JFK. Lovely crew. Bumpy flight but the captain kept us informed. Food better than expected. Flight arrived early but no gate so we had to wait."
Cons: "OMG! The seats are obnoxiously close together. I could only sit perfectly upright and even then my knees were pressed tightly against the seat in front of me. I am only 5'7". Impossible to rest due to lack of space. I tried to put my head down on my tray table but couldn't since it hit the seat in front of me. Mid flight my 13 year old daughter got back spasms. Upon arrival we could barely walk and looked like two old women limping down the jetway. No idea how a tall or larger person could have even sat down."
Pros: "Staff was frIendly."
Cons: "One of my bags went to Santa Fe"
Pros: "We flew a plane that had 2 row seats. I booked that for my daughter and me as well as seats ahead of an exit so we would have no one behind as. Great seats and they reclined quitea bit. We were very pleased."
Pros: "Excellent infotainment system"
Cons: "45 min queue to take-off"
Pros: "Easy boarding. Due to bad weather they kept us well informed. One hour late but not their fault."
Cons: "A little chilly in the waiting are."
Pros: "The updated food is a nice change to Delta and a positive one."
Cons: "The attitude of the flight attendants was rude and not a way to act in a customer service industry."
Pros: "Friendly crew, navigation around storm, comfortable flight"
Pros: "The flight was good, but the flight attendants were friendly and fun making it better than usual."
Pros: "Overall flight experience was excellent - no delays!"
Cons: "As always, Delta has very little room to store anything in pullback seat back of seat in front of passenger seat."
Pros: "When I finally got on a flight (see what I didn't like), the crew was very helpful and the flight was comfortable."
Cons: "When I checked in online, I received boarding passes for the first two legs of the trip, but was told to see a gate agent in Amsterdam for the boarding pass for that flight. It turns out that there was a problem, attributed by one of the KLM staff that I talked with to "a communication problem between Delta and KLM." As a result, I was finally given a stand-by boarding pass. Since the flight was full, I was denied boarding. After hours of trying to figure this out, the KLM staff put me on a flight for the next day and organized a stay at an airport hotel. The KLM staff were very nice, but it seemed to take a very long time to figure this out. They also failed to note that the denial of boarding in the records, which caused a problem in my return flight. The upshot: I missed a follow-on flight to Budapest and had to pay a huge rebooking fee for that missed flight. I also missed a day of my vacation."
Pros: "Everyone was very polite"
Cons: "Too many seats hadn't been aside. It was an unnecessary wait in line for about 20 people to get their seat assignments."
Pros: "The crew were friendly and efficient. The seats were narrow, but as to be expected. Meals were fine. Will fly Delta again and again."
Cons: "Flight Minneapolis to Detroit was delayed which caused us to miss our original flight and go out a day later."
Pros: "The pilot was funny and flight crew was friendly."
Cons: "What I didn't like was out of their control!"
Cons: "No entertainment for the whole 5 hr flight. Very bad"
Pros: "Great flight from tampa, everything was perfect"
Pros: "Everything was fine Food entertainment"
Cons: "Because the flight was delayed a whole day and night I was exhausted. I have been trying to get the $200 delayed trip rebate. I was given no instructions on how to do this finally after speaking to a travel agent I got a phone numbers I could call. Called and was told what web sight to go to. Filled in still waiting for a reply a day later. Not happy. I dout that this write up will get any response. The"
Pros: "Stewardess was great"
Cons: "No recline, no window, no hope. Yet there were other empty better seats!"
Pros: "Flight time was short. boarding was organized."
Cons: "No refreshments. (Turbulent weather) makes sense, it felt like there were Windows where they could have offered some water."
Pros: "Entertainment and food was good. Pilot kept good communication with passengers. Some of the inflight crew were nice and willing to help"
Cons: "Some flight attendants should show more willingness to assist and help passengers. Boarding was a bit messy plus they changed boarding gate last minute. Flight was delayed almost one hr"
Pros: "Crew was great! Food was good! Boarding was fast and organized!"
Pros: "I like the price of the ticket ( thanks to KAYAK), the service on board was very good, everything on time and of course very convenient connection between Tampa and Frankfurt to fly to the further airports in Europe. Safety, security and service in good price. It is my favorite airline and rout."
Cons: "Seats are hard"
Pros: "I liked everything else except the seats.The in flight entertainment had good decent options. Boarding happened on time. Staff was friendly. Flight reached on time. Food was decent for a vegetarian."
Cons: "I had a very comfortable sleep in this night flight due to the seat. Very little leg room, I got the last seat of the mid section which didnt recline much. I couldn't hold a comfortable sleeping position all through the night which made me come out with a negative feeling."
Pros: "Seats were ok better than delta or American airline but not much"
Cons: "Seats are cramped up"
Pros: "Ordered gluten free food but they were inconsistent about giving it to me. I received nothing until I asked multiple times after everyone was served then I had a normal meal slammed on my tray and flight attendant walked away. No apology or even a comment about what happened with my order. Flight attendant was rude although I was trying to be polite. We were lucky to have a spare seat between us and were comfortable for the flight. The entertainment system and the programming choices were quite good."
Cons: "Our boarding was scheduled for 1:45pm But crew arrived @ 1:45 And it took them 30 minutes to actually star boarding So we were 30 minutes late to Frankfurt and missed our flight"
Pros: "The service, nice clean airplane, decent food"
Cons: "During the over night time passengers we not offered any drinks, you had to go to the galley"

Pros: "Very short fligh so there was no entertainment but everything else was perfect"
Pros: "My flight was delayed causing me to miss the Frankfurt to Zagreb flight. I had planned to arrive in Zagreb the same time as my son ."
Pros: "overall condition of the plane - excellent bathrooms - clean, modern, well-maintained flight attendants - cheerful, helpful fresh fruit cup for breakfast snack complimentary drinks in Economy class"
Cons: "meal selection - only pasta left - why not carry a few extra? salad old - better to eliminate it altogether $35 charge for advance seat selection in Economy"
Pros: "We were treated so nicely and food was fantastic. Entertainment quality superb as well."
Pros: "Flight was awful."
Pros: "Plane A380 upper deck"
Cons: "Hindu Veg meal could have been better. Boarding area was very crowded for a A380 plane"
Cons: "Flight got delayed for 6 hours. Had to rebook next flight, increased one more stop and travel time."
Cons: "- long wait, no space, mediocre service, bad food and the worst thing was that I had rail and fly and didn't even get a ticket for the train. So I had to argue with the responsible person in the train. Furthermore they told me that I have to pick up my luggage at the train station as Lufthansa apparently had a counter right there but my luggage got out the normal luggage claim so I had to walk back and for in the airport. This was overall a really annoying experience."
Pros: "the crew were exceptionally friendly and helpful"
Cons: "the seats are really not comfortable....especially the angle of the head rest...."
Pros: "The Airbus 380 was large and smooth. The cabin service in business class was excellent."
Cons: "Everything was great except for narrow seats."
Pros: "Boarding was well done. Keeping the correct sections boarding at their proper time. The in flight entertainment was excellent."
Cons: "Seats were very stiff. I have long legs and nowhere to put them. If you don't speak German you feel like a step child. Lighting turned on by the passenger to my left illuminated me while I was trying to sleep. No ability to control air flow. Got very hot sitting in the middle."
Pros: "Economy class seats are very tight and especially when the person in front tilts their seat back. Long flights can become very uncomfortable."
Pros: "The flight personal was very nice and Understanding. The food had a vegetarian Option which was very accommodating."
Cons: "I bought this flight months before the flight date and when I came to SeaTac to check in, I was told that I did not have a seat. The reasoning being because the flight was overbooked. That's not my fault and was very frustrating to have to wait for my seat, while everybody was boarding. Luckily, I still got overhead Storage for my backpack, but if not, then I would have been expected to just deal with it? All in all, it worked out, but it started out as a very frustrating experience. I hope that it won't be the same on my way back"
Pros: "Entertainment was good, lots of movies to choose from, good audio quality"
Cons: "Boarding was completely disorganized. They were calling groups based on the seat number but everyone was standing in line without paying attention to it and they were not enforcing it. So we ended up with a lot of people from the first rows boarding before the other and blocking everyone. Comfort doesn't exist anymore in Economy class, if you are taller than 5.9' your knees will touch the seat and you are squeezed in like cows. But that applies to almost all airlines nowadays."
Pros: "The service was very good. The dinner was surprisingly good."
Cons: "The seats are so cramped together...but no worse than any other airline. I had trouble finding the baggage ares in Frankfurt. The signs were confusing."
Cons: "The staff in the check in was not sure if i need a visa to enter Europe, viena and Frankfurt and i really explained that Albania is in shengen and we do have bio metric passport but they need to verify which took around 15-20minutes waiting there."
Pros: "It would be helpful to have the option to chose the meal in advance during online check in. At the gate I was told that one would need to make a phone call for that. Online would be easier,"
Cons: "The UA crew tries hard but a flight operated by Lufthansa feels more relaxed and more comfortable. Difficult to pin down the exact reason for that. Also: are those bag tag self-printout machines at UA / O'Hare really speeding up the process / cutting costs that much?"
Cons: "Service is poor, Food quality is terrible, Luggage handling is not provided from United airlines to Tunisair this inconvenient"
Cons: "I ordered a Kosher meal and I received frozen, even the water was solid frozen. I told the flight attendant when they recollected the trays and she took note to avoid the same mistake for Breakfast."
Pros: "Great. Flight. Great service. Great plane Thanks you Although there was a delay about 30-45 min."
Cons: "Didn't take that flight"
Pros: "sory, i am not good in english"
Cons: "delay in departure, if your fault"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "United has changed check-in to multi step process using Kiosks. Would not allow even 0.5 lbs over allowed limit of 50 lbs. for each individual bag, even though second bag was lower than allowable limit. I had middle seat in Premium Economy. My shoulders were pushing against persons sitting on each side. seat is 17" wide, my shoulders are over 20" wide. It was so uncomfortable that soon after take-off I moved to economy section for the only aisle seat available. The seat reclines only 5", so whether I reclined or not, the seat was very uncomfortable. The food served was way below par. TV dinner quantity was so little that I could have had 3 of those. Plastic cutlery of miniature size. Charged for alcoholic beverages (on transatlantic flight!!). Pleasant surprise was the availability of vegetarian option without pre-ordering before flight. For snack before landing, they served cold croissant. And they did not load one of my bags .... was supposed to be on the flight next day, but wasn't. So its been 2 days and I am still waiting on 1 of my 2 checked bags. And the wifi has not worked on any United flight so far for me. Way back in 2013 Turkish airline had working wifi and did not charge extra, unlike what United wants to do ... but they have to first get the wifi working. Flight immediately after was Lufthansa. Even though I consider Lufthansa now as a "has been" airline, it pains to say that Lufthansa was much more comfortable. Seats reclined much more than United making them relatively much more comfortable than United. Regular size steel cutlery. Alcoholic beverages (limited choice, no rum but had Dewars) served. I have flown many times on United from US to Europe and Asia. Last few years were mostly in Business Class and was very happy. I have accumulated over 200,000 miles in the last years and was a Gold status member with United for couple of years. But the cost cutting measures implemented by United in economy class over last few years puts it now on par with airlines like Frontier and Spirit in the domestic market. But the tix prices are on par with premium airlines. I will be avoiding United for international travel."

Cons: "Food was cold except the main course. Only one meal for trip for 11 hours ! The snak is very littile ! The crew was ok but not nice"
Pros: "It was too cold on the flight from IAD to FRA and two blankets were not enough...Also the food was pretty terrible. Finally I don't understand why Lufthansa doesn't honor gold members to have access to seat assignment other than 24 hours before the flight without pay..."
Cons: "Delayed flight , horrible management, manipulating customers"
Pros: "Everything was just fine since this is a short-haul flight."

Cons: "All good up to the level"
Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."
Cons: "When its rain we shouldn’t walk to the air plain"
Cons: "Still don’t have my luggage yet"
Pros: "The crew was amazing, flight on schedule and good entertainment."

Cons: "Food could have had better quality and the stewardess served it all at once versus in the various courses."
Pros: "Being fed was amazing and watching free TV was great!"
Cons: "I wish there were personal fans because it got uncomfortably hot sandwiched between people"
Pros: "Nice seats. Only seats with a row of 2, which is what I wanted,"
Cons: "At the check in they made me pay 50€ for my luggage. This is really upsetting because from Houston to Venice they didn't make me pay. Either the website wasn't transparent or the lady at the desk made a mistake. Very upsetting, one luggage should be included."
Pros: "Boarding agent extra effort to improve my seating!"
Cons: "Food amount less than expected."
Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, landing at vce took an additional 10 minutes due to no one at the jet way. Luggage service was very slow"
Pros: "Amsterdam airport and Rome airport were as breeze to navigate, even only knowing English"
Cons: "Still waiting to board after missing this connection had to be booked on another airline"
Pros: "Nice flight ...was comfortable travel ...good food.Thanks"
Cons: "No such things"
Pros: "Fairly nice flight. 7 hours AMS to JFK. They had ice cream cones for us mid flight and an after dinner cognac if you wished."
Cons: "Not a big fan of paying for a few extra inches of leg room in a better seat after paying for a ticket."
Cons: "Boarding was very confusing. There was an area where they were checking people's bags or something near the gate and you didn't know if you needed to stop at it or continue. They didn't collect garbage before landing. Not only did we have to take our bags off the plane, we had to carry our garbage (drink cups/food served) to the front of the plane to throw out."
Pros: "Good service onboard, good food. On time."
Pros: "Service, technology"
Cons: "Could not print by boarding card and was not allowed to board in Amsterdam"
Pros: "Food was good and crew members were very nice"
Cons: "My check in luggage was in very bad condition when I receive it. My clothes were all wet and they got bab by each other’s colour. Many clothes are not in a condition to wear now. Those were expensive and I had a big loss because of that."
Pros: "Decent seat size. Sorta slept the whole flight."
Cons: "Boarding was delayed a little due to weather as was takeoff. Cant blame them for weather but the connection was very tight."
Cons: "Bag was lost"
Cons: "Amesterdam airport employee was really rude"
Pros: "Flight was delayed for three hours and was a very stressful flight"
Cons: "Flight was not on time and got to destination very very late pier management of aircrafts"
Pros: "Arriving more or less on time"
Cons: "Crew is awful. Disrespectful desinterested in customers find themselves very important. No service mentality whatsoever. No respectful airline would hire such arrogant self centered personalities in a service role"
Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
Pros: "Speed, crew, and reliablity."
Cons: "Food wasn't good, no entertainment or accessory plug ins, and seats were worn out! Not comfortable at all. Great leg room though."
Pros: "Short layover connecting from US flight and luggage transferred ok to destination. Food option not great but at least they didn't charge for it unlike some other airlines. No entertainment but to be expected on such a short flight."
Pros: "For an 8 hr flight...multiple snacks, 2 meals and continuous beverage service. Blanket, pillow amd movies."
Cons: "Watched flight attendant drop tongs on floor, pick them up and put them back in the bowl of buns and continue to use them to serve bums"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and helpful."
Cons: "The space is no longer a respectful space. Paid 32 Euros for my seat, there was not enough space, the man beside me kept jabbing me on the ribs."
Pros: "captain was great."
Cons: "With skyteam elite status cannot select free upgrade from economy to premium economy unless it is 30hrs before boarding for this code share which is actually a KLM flight"
Pros: "The flight crew were kind, polite, and attentive."
Cons: "Bussing to the plane was a bit odd, but the crew remained organized in doing so. When we arrived to the plane, they had both entrances open so that those sitting near the rear of the plane would enter from the back. Plane was a little chilly, but I have come to expect that one most flights."
Cons: "The flight was very delayed. We sat on the floor because there was not enough seating. We eventually had to squeeze into buses and drive around the tarmac to find a plane. We lost 5 bags in the process but eventually got them 2 days after arrival. the bags did not show up when we originally were told they would."
Pros: "In general, it was ok"
Cons: "Yet again it was flight delay from KLM side."
Cons: "My family of five spent a lovely week in Sardinia. Our return flight took us through Rome. We were boarded an hour ahead of departure from Rome for our 10+ hour flight, only to be held on the ground for a one hour delay. Barring equipment malfunction, this is a totally unacceptable way to treat people. Be assured that I will avoid Rome in the future if at all possible. I trust that Rome nor Italy need my tourist dollars and there are many lovely other places to spend them. Exceedingly disappointed, Pam Just"
Pros: "During my first flight from East Midlands England to Amsterdam I lost my baggage by another airlines and the KLM crew was very dedicated and supportive until they found it and check in for me... Many thanks and I wouldn't forget it."
Pros: "On-time Quick boarding Friendly staff"
Cons: "Only pre-security lounge (Air France) that is open till 19:00."
Pros: "Delays. Very hard to rebook. Crew was inattentive. No chargers or TVs. Little overhead bin space. Terrible flight."
Cons: "Fix everything mentioned above"
Pros: "I paid $118 for an extra legroom seat (D26) which then turned into a pass through for passengers to cut across to the other side to use the lavatory. This happened throughout the flight, hence took away the comfort I paid for and needed on this long flight."
Cons: "The food. I mean who makes this stuff?"
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The chairs are hard and no lumbar support"
Cons: "Business class - never offered food or drink for entire flight."
Pros: "Plane had three delays. Apparently American mechanics are not allowed to strike so they have these fake or very slow mechanical issues."
Cons: "Be on time. We missed our overseas connection and had to buy new tickets to Italy"
Pros: "Good seating and pleasant crew."
Cons: "Board in reverse order so the back of the plane gets filled first"
Cons: "Cabin crew was good not great - expected more in flagship"
Pros: "On time, super help , confortable"
Cons: "Disgusting Food. Extremely uncomfortable seats: unable to recline far enough, my knees on back of seat in front of me, unable to sleep at all the entire trip. This was American Airlines, not British Airways. Cheap headphones kept falling out of line in port. TERRIBLE FLIGHT, Never Again!"
Pros: "video choices"
Cons: "seat width leg space aisle are way too narrow"
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Isles for walking are way too small! I mean you can’t walk normally. I am 5’11” 195 lbs. not big but I have to move sideways down the isle. This is a very dangerous situation in a emergency situation. Something needs to be done. The seat space between the seats is another story"
Pros: "Mostly really friendly crew members. Plane seemed new, first and business class looked lovely."
Cons: "Wihout question, the most uncomfortable seat ive ever been in. It was obviously a newer plane, long haul flight, and thw configuration maximized space for more passengers. Width of economy seat was tightest I've ever experienced, with the arms of the seats literally right at my legs, nearlt digging in. The leg room was very short with my knees nearly touching the back of the seat in front of me. When i put my tray down, it actually rested on my knees, and was not level because it pitched up due to longer legs (and I'm only 5'9). This was a long haul, 8 hour flight. I've never beeñ so uncomfortable on a flight in my life, and have never counted the minutes I could get out. Seemed obvuous that meal service had taken a hit when corporate looked for places to cut expenses, its one of the lower quality meals. If compared with an international carrier, the food was really sub par. Mostly really friendly crew members, unfortunately, one who really didnt seem to enjoy the job any longer."
Pros: "It was an average flight"
Cons: "Delay of 2 hrs and it wasn't due to weather"
Pros: "The flight was early to arrive. There was also a rather frightening bit of turbulence, and the pilot explained why it had occurred, which I found very reassuring."
Cons: "The food was definitely below average. It's virtually all carbohydrates.Other airlines provide you with a printed description of the menu options, so it's easier to make a choice. "Chicken or pasta" doesn't give the passengers any idea of what they are actually choosing. This time the chicken dish was served with pearl couscous, so it was basically pasta as well. The salad I was given was brown and wilted, and while the cabin attendants were kind enough to give me two salad that were in better shape (after meal service), I just think that quality control should have prevented a inedible salad from being served in the first place. I am also extremely opposed to American Airlines Transatlantic luggage fees. Since I was moving abroad rather than taking a short trip, I was not pleased about paying 100 USD for a second bag on top of an already expensive flight."
Pros: "Flight did not take place because of cancelled return flight. the whole itinerary was cancelled."
Cons: "because of cancelled flight I had to schedule a new itinerary directly through American Airlines. The cost increased from $947.50 to $1,873 plus airport parking for 17 days."
Pros: "Friendly attentive crew"
Cons: "The only entertainment was streaming movies via your own device. Not the end of the world but most people have come to expect having personal video monitors. Delta is adding them but AA is taking away."
Pros: "Everything went as expected. Overall a smooth flight and friendly service."
Cons: "Well, it's never comfortable to try to sleep in economy class, right? But I knew that going in, and that's what I chose."
Cons: "Our original flight was cancelled so we were rebooked for a much later flight which impacted our vacation. Call system was not working efficiently."
Pros: "Crew was great. No electrical outlets, wntertainment was mediocre. This was an old 747 that needs an update."
Pros: "Crew and other personnel"
Cons: "I was not able to select a seat 24 hours before flight"
Pros: "Average. Expectation for US airlines are so low this flight score average."
Pros: "I liked the way the AA gate supervisor too charge of the problem and solved it, with great deal of personal imvolvement and follow up. Also check-in crew was very much the best. I would say that AA showed the best of passages care to me. Truly outstanding."
Cons: "Because of a mixup, though not of AA doing, I was literally forgotten at the gate. However, AA personnel showed the very best of can-do attitude and got me home for Thanksgiving. I am very proud of everyone working at AA at the TPA airport."
Pros: "That it was over night"
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Food was not good at all."
Cons: "I called your customer service department which I believe is in India or Pakistan three times to ask them to help with an alternative flight and each time I got different information, when I asked to speak to a supervisor I was told by the punk on the end of the phone that that wouldn't be possible. I asked for his name and employee number and he told me his name was Michael, difficult to believe when he sounded Indian"
Pros: "Fast service, wonderful crew"
Cons: "Our seats couldn't recline. It was such a long flight and sleep was difficult in a sitting position."
Pros: "Food was okay.."
Cons: "Had a bulk head seat that turned out to be not one."
Cons: "Missed the flight due to accident on the road. AA was more than helpful in trying to reroute me BUT British Air did not want to cooperate so my trip is now cancelled. This is my 3rd dealings with British Air and they are THE WORST! I will never buy British Air tickets again. Being less than satisfied for the 3rd time is enough to lose my business forever."
Cons: "Horrible experience in the ground system, they charged me $240 for my bags and the staff are really confused."
Cons: "Horrible service and was never notified so I was not able to make either of these flights."
Pros: "Very friendly staff, on time, most of all very comfortable."
Cons: "The Oppurtunity that could improve is the boarding in plane to have passengers board in groups."
Pros: "Food and crew were excellent. In flight entertainment vast."
Cons: "Seats were terribly uncomfortable. I was sandwiched between two men in an aisle seat of 4 and our arms were bumping into each other the whole time because the seats were smaller than the people. It was the most back and lower lumbar discomfort I've had."
Pros: "It was fine"
Cons: "It was a full flight, but I cannot complain"
Pros: "The food and drinks were great. Flight left on time and arrived on time."
Cons: "This flight was actually on an American 777. One of the older models. For an almost 9+ hour flight, the in-seat entertainment systems need to be upgraded. The seats did not have USB charging capabilities, the selection of movies at the seat consisted of about 8 choices, and the screen size wasn't much larger than that of an iPhone 6 Plus. This was supposed to be a British Airlines flight, but it really was an American flight. I expected to be on a BA aircraft, which would have probably been upgraded."
Pros: "I flew first class. Philadelphia airport is horrendous. I chose to fly first class to avoid lines and make flying by my lonesome go more smoothly. There are no special lines for first class there are absolutely no perks to flying first class out of Philly. The first class flight attendant was rude. They ran out of hot food by the time they got to me so I was served yogurt ... I don't eat yogurt. I waited 40 minutes for my luggage to arrive at baggage claim. The flight to Philadelphia from Tampa was a good experience. They had first class lines. The airport was cleaner. The flight attendant Steve, was kind and professional. I was served a hot lunch. I'm a diabetic and when my blood sugar went low he got me orange juice quickly. I waited maybe 10 minutes for luggage at baggage claim. However with the horrific experience in Philadlephia I may never fly American again. Definitely will never fly out of Philadelphia again. I was told by the woman who I sat next to on the way home that she hates American and usually flys Delta for her business trips."
Cons: "AVOID FLYING OUT OF PHILADELPHIA!!!"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Pros: "Friendly staff, on time"
Cons: "No issues"
Cons: "NEVER GOT THE TICKETS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "Check in was good."
Cons: "Hate paying for bags. It's silly."
Pros: "Departure on time, arriving on time. Great flight"
Pros: "comfortable seating"
Cons: "For the crew members not to speak so loudly in the back while people are sleeping on overnight flights. If the entertainment is going to be through an App on your person devices charging outlets should be available."
Cons: "This flight was operated by American, but sold by Iberia and ticketed by airfare.com. When I tried to reserve a special meal, each party (American, Iberia & airfare.com) said they could not do it, that the other party had to do it. So, in other words, no company took responsibility for my customer satisfaction. So I am ultimately blaming American Airlines accountable since they, not Iberia or airfare.com, contracted with the food service provider at the airport."
Pros: "I like the comfort and the cheap prices of the fear rates"
Cons: "American cancelled flight after all day wait because they could not find a first officer."
Cons: "Not good my carry on bag they send it under and they said I get it at my final destination"
Cons: "My flight was cancelled I am told due to lack of crew. What the heck??? It took me all day to get home waiting on standby flights."
Pros: "Everyone was friendly, the flights were on time, the food was great."
Cons: "There was very little leg room and few entertainment choices."
Cons: "I was delayed for an hour leaving Tampa and my connection in Charlotte was canceled. So I did not get into JFK until 12:15 in the morning. I asked for a food voucher from American in Charlotte and was denied after waiting so many hrs in Charlotte to get on a 10.05pm to jfk, that was terrible."
Pros: "The crew went out of their way to see that I was seated easily before the crowd came on board."
Cons: "The cookies are ok but not very refreshing. I prefer Pepsi to Coke. Being in a wheel chair, I didn't have the option to stop at a food place to get something to eat before boarding. It was so extremely cold in the cabin."
