Cons: "Qatar Airways... Never to expect more"
Cons: "Crew needs more booster, perhaps? so they can share some smiles and warm gestures like what we experienced during flight from Singapore to Doha. Ability to choose kids' meal 24 hours before flight. we don't know the avail menu, hence we ordered on outbound only, unable to change afterwards."

Pros: "Great crew, as usual."
Cons: "Ugh, The seat in front of me had some box taking up 1/4 of my leg-room. I get that the box probably contains some crucial equipment, but can you at least round the edges so I can lay my leg against it without cutting off my circulation to my foot? Other than that, typical Qatar luxury (as much as you're gonna find in coach)."
Pros: "Excellent customer service, from the check in process, to boarding, to flying 21 hours from Boston to Phuket with infant- we couldn’t have asked for a better experience! Everyone was so accommodating and helpful as we traveled with our 7 month old a lot g distance."
Cons: "Entertainment and food timings are odd."

Pros: "Cabin crew including the ground staff were awesome in providing best of its class customer service. Food and entertainment onboard was really good."
Cons: "Before our trip we called Kayak service desk with the request to reserve our seats. The answer obtained was that we should do it online. When we went online there were almost no more seats available so we decided to go to the check in counter in the airport. Although we were more than 3 hours in advance in the airport there were almost no seats available. We were very disappointed about this service, we never experienced this with any other airline companies..."
Pros: "Space, food, service, handling"
Cons: "That I could not and cannot retrieve my flight on the Qatar Airlines website."
Pros: "The flight went fairly smooth, the staff were courteous and the food was as good as can be expected of airline food. There were several courses and options, which is always appreciated."
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."
Cons: "The flight departure from Dar was moved up an hour and the congestion at the airport made it close. Also I need a name tag on a checked piece of luggage. When I asked, I was told that none were available. The check in person was not pleasant or helpful. I also had to watch to make sure that the luggage labels were attached to be sure that they would make it to Chicago. Once on the plane there was an unrudy boy sitting in front of us jumping in his seat, never wearing his seat belt kicking the seat, turning on the light beating on the tray table, calling the flight attendant. The adult ignored the child through the flight. It was one of the worse experiences I have had on a plane. I would have to think very hard before I fly Qatar again."
Pros: "Wheelchair was assigned to me from terminal to inside plane. Crew was able to speak my local language. That was something awesome feel like home."
Cons: "Am satisfied with the services but free wifi was not there ;-)"
Cons: "The flight+all Qater air Way services was canceled but I didn't receive any message or update from kayak. So stressful and bad expiarence."
Pros: "great service, food, friendliness of staff, clean plane"
Pros: "If you can book Qatar Airways at a price competitive with any other major carrier then absolutely do - incredible service, plane, food, and overall experience that far exceed the competition."
Pros: "Love it. Newer airplane; state of the art high-tech."
Cons: "Seats in economy very uncomfortable for long Doha to LAX flight. When person in front of us reclines seat for entire flight, it is almost impossible to get out to stretch legs or go to restroom. At the minimum, crew should ask all passengers to raise seats during meal service as a courtesy to those behind them. This is done on other airlines."
Pros: "I liked everything about the flight."
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Pros: "Spacious single seat Plenty of handy storage Pajamas provided Quiet cabin Great service Lounge wonderful as ever Not woken until last minute"
Cons: "Boarding a bit haphazard"
Cons: "We normally fly business class, but this was a quick side trip so we settled for economy."

Cons: "Nothing it was perfect."
Pros: "The entertainer system was down all of the flight, could not charge my phone. Crew was polite but Curt."
Cons: "No delays and more room"
Pros: "The seats were extremely comfortable! I"
Pros: "Crew was professional and understanding/empathetic given the circumstances. We were delayed 4 hrs."
Cons: "While the weather delay was out of everyone’s control and it was obvious the pilot was doing everything he could to get the pale airborne... i feel their could have been better communication from the ground as to our take off time. They kept changing our time and thus we were trapped on the tarmac for 4 hrs. Had we known, some of us could have gotten off the plane and rerouted so as not to miss our connecting flight. We and others were stuck in Atlanta, had t okay for a hotel....and missed a day of vacation....☹️"
Pros: "Landed on time"
Cons: "Still sitting waiting for a gate at Logan"
Pros: "Crew. Alcohol and water bottles. Food. Entertainment. Comfort"
Pros: "Good food and beverage."

Cons: "They sent my luggage to a completely different state! Now I have to wait till it gets to LGA and then they’ll send it to me."
Pros: "I asked at the gate to change my seat in row 30 because I was not next to my husband. The crew arranged this! Loved the leg room! Service was perfect."
Cons: "Flying first class!"
Cons: "Having food & being on time would’ve been nice?"
Cons: "Cramped seats, rude flight attendant"
Cons: "Smooth flight, great crew."
Cons: "5 hours late!!!!!! Delta sucks"
Cons: "thin seat cushions"
Cons: "I upgraded to Premium+ and it did not feel like an upgrade from a comfortability standpoint."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Wish the seat was more comfortable. Landing was jittery and bumpy."
Cons: "The girls were sweet as usual!"
Pros: "Timing was good"
Cons: "Plane was too small. Attendant was almost nonexistent."
Pros: "Plane was on-time, that was the only thing nice to say about this flight."
Cons: "First, I was charged $100 because my bag was 3 kilos over weight. Second the seats in Comfort Plus were old. The recline was weak and there were no foot rests. For a cheaper flight on American, the seats have those amenities making it easier to sleep. Plus the food was inedible."
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "The food"
Pros: "Very friendly cabin crew; excellent service with a smile. Food was good considering, and Magnum ice cream bar a delightful treat. Cabin crew paid good attention to benefits of hydration and served water continuously. Seats and leg room were comfortable considering economy and no extra cost."
Cons: "Plane was not as clean as it should be--plastic utensil on floor, seat rails not vacuumed--however, still rate overall comfort as excellent."
Pros: "Fine, courteous"
Pros: "I always appreciate in-flight television even on short flights."
Cons: "Very tight seating."
Pros: "Boarding was easy. Checking in was easy, the overall flight was quiet and quick and on time"
Cons: "Nothing to report here"
Pros: "On time, pleasant and friendly flight attendant, no unexpected issues or problems."
Cons: "Grumpy gate attendants at YUL! Could not hear the captain’s comments over the PA system. Shouldn’t the volume be checked every so often? We were offered only water or coffee, bad enough, then there was no milk or cream on board, so water or black coffee... not very impressive! And there was no entertainment so I’d rate that zero but the scale only goes as low as one star."
Pros: "The gluten-free dinner was amazing. There was even gluten-free bread! Also, I always appreciate the free Wifi for messaging!! Also, despite there being a lot of turbulence, everyone did well. I prayed for safety and for the pilots and crew; the turbulence stopped after that and our arrival wasn't all that delayed."
Cons: "The gluten-free breakfast was extremely disappointing. Yogurt, a tiny cup of fruit, and veggie sticks??? What about a gluten-free English muffin with egg instead? The boarding was a little confusing. I was one of the last to board in my group because I couldn't see from where I was sitting - I thought priority was still boarding, but group 2 was already up. Also, please be more kind to baggage."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly, especially when checking in"
Pros: "Good price, good boarding and arriving, friendly and quick crew, LOTS of fluids. Restrooms cleaned frequently!! Great legroom."
Cons: "Seat bottom cushion was to hard. Food should have an Asian option, the touch panel display of entertainment system worked very slow and poorly, was hard to navigate."
Pros: "Fantastic Pilots and a great flight attendant."
Pros: "Seating was ok but had better for a premium coach."
Cons: "The tv screen. Touch pad was not working properly on both legs."
Pros: "Delta is always great to fly on, but this was not the best.."
Cons: "We had delays EVERYWHERE. What is usually a 40 minute flight from Birmingham to Atlanta took an hour & 25 minutes. Once I landed, I had to connect allll the way on the other side of the airport. Once in air, things were fine, just hot. However, due to weather, we had to fly for an additional 45 minutes in the sky. The crew was as nice as they could be in that situation just overall a frustrating."
Cons: "I didn’t like having to pay for bags and headphones."
Pros: "Great selection of movies"
Cons: "Its a 3.5 hr flight. No charging outlets available. Food options very limited by the time they got to me, row 26. No in -seat entertainment screen. Hard seats."
Pros: "Fabulous fight. Attentive staff and I love the free entertainment tv’s."
Cons: "Long wait for de-Icing. Got on and off the plane 3 times. First wait was 1 hour, but plane aborted takeoff. Second plane waited at gate with all aboard for 2-1/2 hours and never got slot and de-planed. Third plane waited 1-1/2 hours for de-Icing and finally we were headed home. Arrived 8.5 hours after schedule."
Pros: "The EXIT seat with nothing in front of me."
Cons: "The non-ability to pre book seating. Assignment not available until arriving at departure gate. No entertainment."
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: "The food was fine and it was on time"
Cons: "The airplane back by the bathrooms were littered all over the floor. Needed to be cleaned. Their were no seat covers in toilette and it was only 2 hrs into the flight."

Pros: "Gate agents were very helpful and kind"
Cons: "The flight was late. Not a lot of communication as to why."

Pros: "Got grounded for five hours stuck on the plane."
Pros: "The time traveled to get to my destination! It would not be my choice if I was to fly again."
Cons: "The customer service. The flight attendants needs to take some more training on how to provide a better service to paying customers. The seemed a bit unfriendly!"
Pros: "We got to board first"
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable, the food was uneddible and we had to wait a very long time for our baggage"
Pros: "We had comfort class and it's very nice"
Cons: "Both Crews at airport and on flight aren't very friendly, I guess this is the nature of all American flight after seeing how customer being treated from the United incident"
Cons: "Food choices"
Pros: "Delta has failed in trying to break into the Aspen market. Their "personal ground crew" was hapless. Half the passenger bags didn't make it on to the plane. When we checked in the ticketing agent was randomly stacking bags in a heap behind her, and not putting them on the conveyor belt. The flight attendant was loud and screechy, saying that it was easier to leave off the bags than take people off the plane. What?? How was this not accounted for before the flight. On the way out, they forgot to build in time to de-ice the plane. SMH"
Cons: "remove justfly"
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "7pm flight, received flight delayed notification at 11am that day. How do you anticipate a delay 8 hours prior to a flight. Delay allowed me about 10 minutes to sprint through the lovely Charlotte airport. To finish off my trip, American Airlines manages to misplace my carry on that was required to be tagged and stowed. I handed it to the individual right outside the plane to be stowed. How does the bag not get in the same plane?!?"
Pros: "787 Airplane is nice, very modern. Early Departure Early Arrival. Very smooth Flight. In Flight Entertainment system was great."
Cons: "There was hardly any food and no offering of coffee or variety of beverages on this International 10+ hour flight. Seats were small and not very comfortable. On arrival nobody seemed to know which terminal exit family should meet us at, and LAX "information" said they know nothing about what AA does. Unfortunately LAX is just a terrible airport for arrival or departures. But AA needs to show more clearly where family should wait to pick up arriving internal passengers."
Cons: "Taxied for 45 minutes. 10 minutes to open the door. Had to walk .5 mile to get to customs. Had express pass because of connecting flight Still had to wait in line with express pass. Then had to transfer to new terminal. Trains out at ohare so buses. Waited another 30 minutes for a bus then 15 bus ride. Missed flight and had to set around for 4 hours for next. Totally unorganized. Not this way in Japan."
Cons: "Meal, comfort, crew"
Pros: "Business class is wonderful"
Cons: "Bathroom floor was full of pee."
Pros: "I like that the flight left on time and arrived early at LAX."
Cons: "They ran out of breakfast. Seat configuration was 3-3-3 in economy and not 2-4-2 like on the JAL flight on the way to Japan. The level of professionalism is much higher on JAL in regards to the flight attendants than AA. The boarding process still needs a lot of work to be more organized (take a look at JAL as an example - they treat customers like kings and queens). Also, there was no way to get a seat assignment through the JAL website. That website looks and acts like it’s from the late 90s."
Pros: "Entertainment was great, amenities such as USB charger and outlets were convenient. Flight departed about 10 minutes early and arrived early as well! Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was not great."
Pros: "Smooth flight. Attentive service. Arrived 1 hour early."
Pros: "-Good entertainment options -During takeoff, plane was on runway for nearly an hour with no word from the captain about delays, etc."
Cons: "-Seats too cramped -I was not informed that the breakfast option of egg omelet contained pork. I cannot eat pork for religious reasons and was unhappy to see this -Food was disgusting - hire a new chef or change your menu options"
Pros: "The onboard crew was very friendly and attentive. American’s service has been vastly improved on international flights over the past couple years. It’s always nice to have a good selection of on board entertainment to keep you busy for 10 hours."
Cons: "The boarding process was disorganized and I was told I wouldn’t be able to carry on my luggage even though I had flown 2 other American flights that week and had no problem. I measured my bag before starting my trip and it fit in the bin. After demanding an explanation from the gate agent. She let me board with it. The seats on every airline get smaller and smaller. have less leg room and are hard. I’m a 5’10 woman and was incredibly uncomfortable after a few hours."
Pros: "flight time was very good, arrived early"
Cons: "Food options were even more deplorable than the last flight. Ate very little. Might go with ANA next time."
Cons: "Movies selection"
Pros: "Really friendly crew"
Pros: "very friendly crews , nice entertainment selections and very reasonable fare. I enjoyed very clean and neat environment. I will fly again with this one."
Pros: "The calmness and assurance from the cockpit was promising"
Cons: "Flight attendants were not pleasant at all. They had know clue what to do during the flight emergency."
Pros: "The flight crew were all very nice and attentive. The on-board entertainment kept me busy during my waking hours. I appreciated the complimentary blanket, pillow and earbuds."
Cons: "The quality of the food selections were ok but could have been better. The remote for the tv screen did not function well with the games. Also, the seats were very hard, sleep did not come easily."
Pros: "Current movie selections"
Cons: "The seats are cramped. They served the final meal very close to the actual landing. The legroom is not comfortable enough for an average size adult. i asked the attendant at the gate for a seat change but never heard back."
Pros: "The service and the food"
Cons: "Seats are on top of each other, very close space, too many people in that flight or should I say, too many seats for that short of space"
Pros: "Crew was very polite."
Cons: "For international flight that plane was way to tight. It was like being stuffed in a can for 11 hours. I will try to not fly international with American again."
Pros: "on-time, very organized, fast checkin"
Cons: "cramp leg space"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seating horrible"
Cons: "Seating ---- to tight"
Cons: "Prefer ANA to JetStar!"
Pros: "Other members of the crew were very helpful."
Cons: "I sat in an aisle seat and one of the crew, old man with a lot of facial hair, must of hit my arm going and coming 15-20 times during the flight. Not one apology. NOT One!!!"
Pros: "Snacks, meals, movies"
Cons: "Too squishy Flight attendant didn't give us a card to fill out for customs. She just walked right by quickly without asking."
Cons: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "Not much! The flight was smooth and without event."
Cons: "Originally, I was scheduled to take a JAL flight from NRT to DFW, but for some reason, American Airlines switched the service to their own aircraft and crew. If I would have known that beforehand, I would not have purchased my ticket through AA.com. During my original online booking, the screen said JAL service from NRT to DFW. Just about everything was bad about my American Airlines flight. I travel to and from America several times a year from Asia. Each time I travel, I swear I will never fly an American based airline for the trans-Pacific portion of my flight. My latest experience with American Airlines only reinforces that resolution. The in-cabin crew is (and I'm being nice) pathetic! They are veteran flight attendants and they look and act like they could care less about the customers on the flight. Frankly, I'm just downright disgusted with the service and personalities of the American crew's attitude. They act like they are old and tired, uninterested in quality service, and that we (the passengers) are an imposition upon their life. For example, mid-flight, I walk to the back of the airplane for something to drink, instead of assisting me they point to a "station" at the Emergency Exit door stocked with random drinks and snacks. While they are chit-chatting, looking at their smartphones and reading newspapers, books, and Kindle-type devices. That has never happened on an Asian-based airline flight. Another example, in-flight food service, the cabin crew members are waking people up to serve food and, instead of being gentle and cordial, they are rude and impatient. My 2 row mates were both Asian, and because of being awakened and the ambient noise in the aircraft, they could not hear what the flight attendant was asking. So, with a tone of impatience and disrespect, the flight attendant virtually shouted at them their choices for the meal. Whatever happened to the "customer is always right" or the "customer is king"? My renewed resolution: I will no longer fly American-based (because Delta is even worse) airlines to and from Asia. If needed, I will pay the higher fees and fares to fly anyone of a number of Asian-based carriers. It is worth it for the 24 hours it takes me to cross the Pacific. I am sick and tired of the begrudged and entitled attitude of the archaic cabin crews of American-based airlines."
Pros: "Very comfortable and enough drink service."
Cons: "AA charges extra for a lot of the economy seats which they claim are "premium" but do not warrant the excessive price tag."
Pros: "I flew Tokyo to Vegas and the entertainment was great."
Cons: "They cancelled my flight vis lax and put me on a flight vis Dallas. That added about 7 hours to my journey. Then they sit on the tarmac for 50 minutes doing nothing on both of the two flights."
Pros: "Crew pleasant. Food nice."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment consoles were nice with a great selection of recent movies, which was nice since the flight was 12 hours. The food was alright but nothing to write home about."
Cons: "The seating space was much more cramped than the JAL flight I took over to Japan. It was awkwardly close to your neighbor when getting adjusted with seat belts and such. This would have been OK for a shorter flight but a bit too close for comfort for a 12 hour one."
Pros: "Comfy and friendly. What's not to like up front?"
Pros: "Sears had more room than as medal, service and hospitality much improved over as. Dinner and breakfast were scrumptious and drink choices were abundant."
Pros: "New airplain."
Cons: "As usual bad luggage handling in USA. At passport control, noticed that my luggage handle was removed half way but I had to re-check in the luggage and airline people did nothing about the handle with tag. And the luggage was lost. Can someone study how other country luggage handler care about customers ' luggage? Save your operation cost!"
Pros: "Rveything ok i noticed American keeps lights low for people rest unlike other airlines"
Cons: "Everything fine considering hours in plane also note passing out fooda all once jal toyko manila didnt like"
Pros: "We were delayed out of Tokyo and missed our connector into Tampa but the airline did a stellar job of being here at the gate with our new flight and boarding passes and also Did a great job makeing sure our luggage arrived in Tampa."
Cons: "Plane going over much better. Had better tv screens charging ports and seemed more comfortable. We were delayed 4 hours out of Tokyo but I know that just happens when you travel sometimes"
Pros: "Economy comfort seating was nice but overpriced. Not sure its worth the $150 ish i paid. American even seems to charge for aisle seating as a premium."
Cons: "Most of the flight attendents acted likenthey wished they were somewhere else. Tired of there jobs."
Pros: "- approachable staff - plane was insulated enough where I wasn't too cold - ample food options on flight"

Pros: "Crew was very pleasant."
Cons: "Flight was extremely late arriving."
Pros: "Entertainment options were good. Food was good."

Cons: "They had an hour and forty-five minutes to get my bags from one plane to the next in Houston but they decided to leave them in Houston anyway for some reason. Having no clothes or toiletries for a whole day in London was horrible. Baggage problems are sometimes easy to figure out and maybe unavoidable.

Pros: "I was able to board early since I have a United MileagePlus Explorer card."
Cons: "The seats in economy has very limited legroom and the large and over weight Caucasian seating next to me frequently took the arm rest and cross over into my space. The airplane did not have individual monitors. And trying to watch a movie on my phone over United's wi-fi was a terrible experience since the signal keeps dropping."
Pros: "Pretty much on time"
Pros: "ANA operates 787s which have much nicer cabins and entertainment systems than the older 777s operated by United."
Cons: "The food on United leg is pretty bad after an ANA operated flight. I'm always going to ask for the Vegeteraierain option going forward. Why waist an animal on that feed stuff they give you to eat."
Cons: "Long delay due a wheelchair. Really? You've never had a wheelchair on board before? Yes, this one did have batteries, but is that so unusual? Our delay was over an hour."
Cons: "Rude gate agents. Ryder flight attendants"
Cons: "I coudnt make an on line checked in, and i called i asked for aisle seats the gurl said yes and its checked in but when i recieved the boarding pass it was middle seat and the worst seat ever at the emergency seat, it was really small the food was terrible service was so bad !

Pros: "The free movies on the united app were awesome"
Cons: "I had to be in New Orleans at 12:00am so I could arrive home for an important interview on Monday morning..

When i arrived to New Orleans I was charged an additional 30.00 dollars for parking!"
