Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Cons: "Flight is always packed to capacity and seats are small. Uncomfortable. On the good side, we had a new plane with leather-like seats."

Pros: "Arriving in SFO for Christmas"
Pros: "Flight was an hour early getting in due to favorable tailwinds - liked that!"
Cons: "Seats weren't that comfortable, but probably not many would be for that long of a flight."
Pros: "Crew was great once we were airborne."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours and caused us to miss train to Florence and spend double the original price to purchase new tickets."
Pros: "Great service and on time flight. Got a good comfortable seat with nice leg room."
Cons: "Very cold cabin despite request to make it warmer, making it impossible to sleep. Food was cheap, carb-heavy fare - rice, crackers, a roll, sugar dessert bisquets all in one meal."
Pros: "The flight attendants were amazing. In flight entertainment is key on flights over 3 hours!"
Cons: "Veggie meal was not great!"
Pros: "The flight entertainment is really nice."
Cons: "Boarding seemed very chaotic as staff tried to get people to check bags at the last minute. My chair would not decline properly."
Cons: "Seating is bad, one pays for the tickets then he has to pay for the seat seperraitly only the middle seat comes with the tickets."
Pros: "Nothing, I got stuck in Spain and had to pay for a new one"
Cons: "I was late for my flight connection, the airline in Spain was unable to robook me because I booked with kayak and I ended up loosing the ticket and had to pay 1,500 US dollars to get the rest of the way home. I could not get a hold of kayak for help by any means"
Pros: "Came around a few times with drink service. Friendly crew"
Cons: "The cabin crew on the flight to Barcelona acted like they really didn't want to be there. From telling me that they'd serve everyone when they had the chance when I asked for water to shouting down the aisles to each other while passengers tried to sleep and having an overall feeling of being incredibly stressed out by basic requests (a bottle of water, help operating the entertainment screen, etc), they made the flight decidedly less enjoyable than an intercontinental flight in economy class already is. They were not rude to me personally, more just disinterested and apathetic, but I did witness one of the flight attendants being downright rude to another passenger. This was not a British Airways crew, but an American Airlines crew, and they treated us like they were doing us a favor by paying us any attention rather than treating us like it is their job to serve passengers courteously."
Pros: "Flight was delayed slightly, but pilot made up most of the time in the air. Everyone was polite and flight was totally uneventful."
Cons: "Seat headrest was weird. Made flight slightly uncomfortable."
Pros: "I like that it was on time"
Cons: "It wasn't a FinnAir flight! After looking everywhere and nobody could find records. It finally came up on American Airlines. Bad communication!"
Cons: "My flight back home was cancelled without any notice and so we had to spend an extra night. The flight the next day went without a hitch, so it sort of made up for it."
Cons: "Seats were quite uncomfortable, there was no entertainment options, there was no way to charge any electronic devices because the plane was so old, which meant I almost wasn't able to catch a ride home after the flight. For a cross-country flight, I would expect a better experience."
Pros: "Got to destination early, nice leather seat."
Cons: "Food was horrible and no TV in each seat."
Cons: "No individual entertainment. Sound on left side of plane did not work. Ran out of wine while pouring at dinner for an international flight. Bith wife and I got sick after eating on the plane. American Airlines Plane."
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 5 hours last minute, making my layover 17 hours long. The delay caused my car rental place to give away my reservation so I had to wait an additional 2.5 hours to get a rental car. The primary reason for my travel was a wedding and although I made the actual wedding, I missed most of the pre-wedding activities that I had rsvped for. The seats were really uncomfortable, particularly the lack of low back support. I was very sore after the flight and was unable to sleep despite having been awake for over 24 hours prior to the flight. We were finally given meal tickets but was unable to use as everything closed at 10pm."
Pros: "Really glad this segment exists!"
Pros: "Ease of boarding, comfort on flight."
Cons: "The delay for 3 hours."
Pros: "Cerainly boarding is easy and the seats are quite comfort in business class."
Cons: "the service, considering this was the highest level of service on these flights was less than I would have expected"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The planes are old. Needless to say there is no Wi-Fi, and the only entertainment on a 7.5 hour flight was a tiny tv in the center of aisle. 1987 tech in 2017. Our plane was delayed for 8 hours due to a broken hydrolics system, and no compensation for additional expenses due to equipment failure was offered."
Cons: "Will probably never choose to fly American Airlines again"
Pros: "Never made this flight they rerouted."
Cons: "Not enough staff at the airport to check in all passengers for early departures"
Pros: "I like that on American you still get a complimentary cup of coffee, a bag of pretzels, and a normal sized seat. I'm OK paying for that after trying some of the budget airlines!"
Cons: "Wish they had a gluten free snack, still that's really not a big deal at all!"
Pros: "Great food and friendly crew."
Cons: "Even though it was a red-eye, it still would have been nice to have a tv for an international flight, or at the least a way to charge your electronics."
Pros: "New plane, big TV screens at each chair, got a nice emergency row seat."
Cons: "Ground delayed for two hours, somewhat uncomfortable seat, one of our "emergency row" seats we paid for wasn't actually an emergency row."
Pros: "Helpful attitude of crew"
Cons: "would have liked to be able to power up digital devices."
Pros: "That we flew over the Atlantic safely. Pleasant enough crew."
Cons: "Very old airplane , the ones with a screen TV in the middle of the airplane."
Pros: "When a flight takes me safely from point A to point B I am very well satisfied. The crew was very nice and helpful, the food was very plentiful and was tasty and there was a lot of entertainment to choose from. The seats were quite comfortable as well."
Cons: "I have no complaints."
Cons: "Last row. They forgot to assign us seats and we almost didn't get one. We had to because we had a dog. They put the dog under the wrong reservation and were concerned they charged someone else for it. No concern for fact they forgot to get us seats. We were in last row center seats. Horrible. Then we were starving and willing to purchase food. By the time they got to us, they were out of food. What?!?! We were willing to pay! Rude personnel. Horrible all around. Hate America. United is better."
Pros: "Flight not entirely sold out. So they let my 14 month grandson have an empty seat between my daughter and I. That was a great gift since he doesn't sleep and is jumping and crawling all over the place. And I'm sure the other passengers were breathing sighs of relief!! Also super smooth landing and nice flight attendants."
Cons: "Flying with an active 14 month old toddler boy and of his "stuff" is nothing less than anxiety provoking. Not much the airline can do.."
Pros: "Flight research tools."
Cons: "After choosing seats through this website we were kicked out of all of them and was separated from my partner. Every single flight we took was late and we missed a connection due to a late take off. The low cost was not worth the extreme effort and connecting flights."
Pros: "Both my flights were slightly early (a plus for me, might not be for all) and I had no issues or complaints."
Pros: "The plane left on time and the flight crew were very courteous."
Cons: "Seats were hard and to close and not enough leg room. We had a new Airbus on an AA flight from San Francisco to Dallas that had wider seats that were softer and enough leg room. That was a great plane. There was no personal entertainment. Only one big screen coming out of the ceiling and playing a children's movie. Did not listen to it."
Pros: "The cabin crew were friendly and the food was decent."
Cons: "Boarded us onto a plane with a broken engine, deboarded the plane and delayed the flight 4 hours. Then we sat on the tarmac for an hour after landing because they didn't inform the airport that we were in a new, larger plane."
Pros: "Loved the check in process, crew was friendly and flight was great"
Pros: "Direct flight, convenient schedule"
Cons: "Ground delay at JFK, no personal entertainment system"
