It was difficult just before boarding as the crew was not clear on where to go or where to provide documents. Other than that, it was okay. I would still use TAP again. :)

It was difficult just before boarding as the crew was not clear on where to go or where to provide documents. Other than that, it was okay. I would still use TAP again. :)

Pros: "Nice quiet flight"
Cons: "Crew member attitude specifically regarding passengers in the emergency rows"
Cons: "Headphone port was plugged full of something"
Pros: "The crew was great. However I have had issues with take offs and landings with Alaska the last two times I’ve flown with them. Literally have been stuck for more than an hour on the tarmac both times."
Cons: "I think that Family’s with young children need to have their own area in the plane. I was screamed at and kicked by children for most of this flight. The extra hour on the tarmac was torture."
Pros: "Love the entertainment options with my own device, food, and power at the seat"
Cons: "Entertainment was disrupted. Departure was delayed by delayed departure of the previous flight without enough explanation to those of us waiting to board"
Pros: "Alaska is the friendliest airline, throughout every touchpoint we have with them."
Pros: "The cheese and fruit tray is great."
Cons: "Boarding takes forever. The seats are too narrow."

Pros: "Good timing"
Cons: "All went well"
Pros: "Free movies was great."
Cons: "Missing luggage. Please help"
Pros: "The spacing between seats were good."
Cons: "The head rest and neck comfort was horrible. I took a red eye flight and didn't get a comfortable sleep."
Pros: "Able to get earlier flight to ORD Did offer complimentary baggage service to destination"
Cons: "Had to pay additional $25 each for earlier flight then had seats behind a dog and toddler both unrestrained and noisy during a 3 1/2 hour flight. WiFi connection was very slow. Only water and one pack of crackers - on travel West via Delta, we had at least 2 offers of variety drinks and snacks."
Pros: "Great crew. Boarding process."
Pros: "Great customer service, fast boarding, media available was good."
Cons: "No outlets to charge electronics. Plane itself seemed a bit on the older end."
Cons: "No free food was offered. Movies were not free."
Pros: "timeliness, courteous, comfortable, charging outlets at every seat."
Cons: "weak movie selection"
Pros: "The Go Go entrainment app is great! Also, best flight crew in the sky."
Cons: "I fell asleep before I could order a drink."
Pros: "New aircraft with plugin for laptop, free movies, and WiFi for a price. Friendly and professional crew. Totally productive flight. Alaska Air is my new favorite."
Pros: "I liked the food options and the entertainment. Staff was really friendly too,"
Pros: "Boarding in order of seat numerical order (big numbered rows board first)"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Slow boarding and deplaning."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Everything was good"
Pros: "Nothing."
Cons: "Put on an American carrier despite having booked with Alaskan. Told the wrong gate. Then told the incorrect boarding time at the correct gate. Missed flight due to gate keeper. Had to gheck my back on the next flight despite ample room to carry on. EVERYONE that works for American Airlines is incompetent, rude and terrible. I WILL NEVER FLY YOUR AIRLINE AGAIN. Your company should be sold off and every employee fired."
Pros: "Fruit platter. On time. Efficient. Professional Plane was very clean"
Cons: "Seattle airport first security man grumpy. Not helpful. No reflection on Alaska airlines however"
Pros: "It was a redeye flight and everything went smooth. I went to sleep on the plane and did not have any food, so I cannot truly rate that portion."
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew, wonderful food, spacious aircraft, wonderful option to get a tablet to watch a movie. Loved being able to plug in at each seat with USB charger etc."
Pros: "The aircraft was comfortable. I just had a standard coach seat and it was as roomy as other airlines premium economy seats. Alaska airlines had reasonably priced food and drinks, and the entire flight crew was friendly and professional. I also liked the free GoGo texting feature."
Cons: "For some reason the airplane left the gate about 40 minutes late. It was also very difficult to hear the announcements from the flight deck. The only announcement that came through loud and clear was the spiel for the Alaska Airlines credit card."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient, seat was comfortable. I appreciate that food and drinks were offered often."
Cons: "One particular flight attendant purposely ignored me when I tried to ask for cream and sugar for my coffee which she did not offer when handing out drinks. Then she looked right at me twice as I tried to give her my garbage which she was collecting, but she ignored me again and left me holding my garbage until a different flight attendant came much later and took it without incident. It made me wonder if it was because I looked Asian- she was helpful and polite to the white women next to me. I was polite and was not being difficult in any way. I'm half white, but was often treated like this in Illinois when I was growing up. She should have been professional and if she had I would have rated the trip as excellent."
Pros: "I have been very pleased flying Alaska Airlines."
Cons: "This flight was rather turbulent but not the fault of the airline. Still on time."
Pros: "Great service. Offered me a seat switch on full flt! Internet was tough and not working well but gogo almost always is. That was minor. Easy nice flight."
Pros: "Same as above."
Pros: "My flight was on time and checking in was made super easy and fast. One of the flights was a bit delayed but that was the weather so I didn't even mind because the staff was attentive."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "I was not allowed to use the restroom when we still had 20 minutes or so to land. As they were collecting final garbage, the restrooms were locked and I was not allowed to use them. I can understand cutting off the use of them once the flight crew is seated but they were still walking around and I really had to go. I don't recall a warning for this. If there was an announcement it was not audible over the hum of the engine. I'm very dissatisfied about that final part of my experience."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly"
Cons: "ran out of many meal types"
Pros: "Your typical airlines for check-in, baggage etc but I was pleasantly surprised when our seat assignments were together for the return trip w/out having to select them. Baggage was extremely fast on the outbound flight but took a few minutes on the return flight."
Cons: "Again, as with most airlines, the seating room leaves a little bit to be desired but the leg room was adequate for a 6'4" man."
Pros: "Everyone was very friendly and they made sure to fit all carry on bags in the cabin rather than having any of them checked. Boarding from the rear of the plane was a different approach, but a nice change."
Pros: "Plenty of overhead bin space; no excessive announcements; ultra clean cabin; flight deck explained the lengthy ORD taxi time to the arrival gate"
Cons: "FA's appeared to be rushed during boarding. I was asked to put up my tray table, and I spilled all of my French fries on the floor as the flight attendant watched. I had to leave the mess all over the floor. My seat neighbor offered to help clean the mess. I cleaned it up on my own with a safety information card as a scoop and dumped the mess into a puke bag. The flight attendant should have offered a trash bag as there was plenty of time before takeoff. I flew for your airline as a flight attendant for almost four years, and I know AS flight attendants are among the best."
Pros: "Both my flights were great, and especially my outgoing flight from Chicago, the attendants at the gate were amazing. I don't think I've ever met more helpful, nice attendants--nothing seemed rushed, and they were helpful and happy. Similarly, the attendants on the flight were really nice and cheerful. Flights left on time, and I got in early on my first flight. I've flown a lot in the last year, but this was one of my better experiences with an airline. Check-in was really easy too."
Cons: "I requested an aisle seat because I have broad shoulders and a knee that hurts if I can't extend it. EVERY TIME a particular stewardess would pass, she'd SLAM into my shoulder, with no care or apology. This was very hard to enjoy a drink, or sleep, or do anything on the flight."
Pros: "easy check in. (emergency seat with no extra cost) kind staff. board on time. but not declined seat, new plane with two power outlet."
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Straightforward. Love that Starbucks coffee is offered! Also love that you can charge devices. The inflight entertainment option works for me; I usually come prepared but I was happy to pay to watch a movie, although the cost seemed unnecessarily high."
Cons: "There was quite a bit of wait at boarding time while standby seating was sorted out. I wasn't sure why ticketed customers could not board on schedule; instead, everyone was standing around at the scheduled board time while names were announced, etc."
Pros: "Crew always has a smile. Smooth boarding process"
Pros: "Plane was new, seemed clean, staff was ok, attentive. Comfortable for the most part. Restroom was clean."
Cons: "For the very high price, they didn't even assign me a seat. I received an electronic notification to go to the ticketing counter. I carry-on always, and I had to check in formally. Which was a waste of time, they told me they overbooked me and there should be a seat, but I would have to check at the gate for a seat. Needing to get on this flight, I hurried to the gate. An hour and a half of wondering later...No one was at the gate until right before boarding. A little frustrating. The rep was very nice, but I got that lovely middle seat."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and efficient"
Pros: "Seats, beer selection, very friendly staff I will be flying again if I get the chance and I never say that anymore about other carriers."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nathing"
Pros: "Boarding was fast, seats were rather comfortable, the crew was attentive"
Pros: "Every airline has the same basic situation to manage. When I fly Alaska, I always feel that everyone who works for Alaska works to do the best that they can and pass it on to their customers. I hope that they continue growing. They would be my first choice to fly everywhere."
Pros: "sat in exit row"
Cons: "no blanket available"
Pros: "Bigger coach than other US airlines"
Cons: "Bigger lavatory in the plains"
Cons: "The headphone jack.was worn out, so the audio was sporadic."
Cons: "Flight was very delayed, waiting on pilots to arrive. The. We sat on the runway for a long time without leaving as well. Crew also made us gate check bags when there was still plenty of overhead space left on plane."
Pros: "Lots more leg room than the other flights I've been on in the last year. I'm tall and I have a bad knee so it made a difference."
Cons: "Can't think of anything"
Cons: "Horrible communication during flight delays and pilot timing out. Sat at the gate for hours with no communication."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "Entertainment units were just there for the sake of it, and didn't actually provide any entertainment"
Cons: "JetBlue is amazing and my favorite airlines for domestic travel."
Pros: "crew member good."
Cons: "delay delay delay"
Pros: "The plane was comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 1.5 hours so would have preferred to be on time"
Pros: "NOTHING! WAITING 10 HOURS AT LOGAN AIRPORT IN BOSTON WAS A NIGHTMARE? WE WERE TOLD THAT THE 11:15AM FLIGHT WOULD BE DEOARTING AT 12 NOON! THEN 3PM, THEN 6:20 PM AND FINALLY WE TOOK OFF AFTER 8PM! WE ARRIVED IN SARASOTA AFTER 11PM. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!"
Pros: "Plenty of leg room in economy seats."
Pros: "It was really nice having a USB charger under every seat."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed by 2 hours and I was only notified when I had arrived at the airport."
Cons: "clearly communicate delays. We had no idea what was happening or what our options were."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy but that may have been because it was a small plane."
Cons: "After landing we sat on the tarmac for 2 hours! This is unacceptable. The gate was occupied by a plane having mechanical issues. This was the second time I have flown JetBlue and the second time I’ve had to sit on the tarmac for hours because of some sort of issue. Never flying JetBlue again if I can help it."
Pros: "The movies were okay. The crew was accommodating."
Cons: "We spent 45 minutes on the tarmac, enough time to watch the baggage personnel throw our bags into his trolley with zero reason for him to do so. If you pack anything fragile... good luck."
Pros: "Easy boarding and flight"
Cons: "There’s nothing special about jet blue anymore."
Cons: "The new security check in with the automated bins."
Pros: "Huge leg room in coach. Free large bag of snacks and they didn't charge me for a snack box filled with chumous, bean dip, crackers, biscotti etc value $9. I thought Jet Blue was like Spirit, but its TOTALLY different. Not at all a budget level airplane or crew."
Pros: "Crew efficient, polite, & communicative. Array of tv channels allowed me to watch football while our departure was delayed."
Cons: "Mechanical problems delayed our departure."
Pros: "Extra leg room, comfortable, leather seats, cleanliness of the cabin, efficiency and friendly manner of the staff, assigned seating and enough room in the gate area to be comfortable. I also appreciated being able to hear and understand all announcements made in the gate area and on board by the support staff and the captain."
Cons: "Some passengers in the gate area were "seat hogs" sitting in one seat and taking up one to two extra seats for their baggage while people were trying to find places to sit, especially when we experienced delays.. This is not the fault of the airlines, however, but it occurs to me that there could be gentle reminders on in print or in announcements asking people to make room for other passengers."
Cons: "2 hr delay. Poor ventilation"
Pros: "Leg room was great. Free WiFi and TVs made the flight very accommodating."
Cons: "Crying baby. Not the airlines fault."
Pros: "Excellent healthy snack options and variety. Friendly crew. They recycle. Arrived on time"
Cons: "Landed 10 minutes early only for them to announce we had 10min delay at the gate. then we sit on runway for 40 minutes with no explanation. That is unacceptable.. context for anxious passengers is a must. Customer sat plummets from this. A little communication goes a long way."
Cons: "Flight over 3 hours late leaving. Flight attendants rude, and nothing comped for drinks or food to make up for it. Had to circle for 45 min due to weather. Sat on tarmac 30 mijn on other end."
Pros: "Having a tv"
Cons: "Sound jack not working properly , older plane no amenities"
Pros: "The crew could not have been more helpful and pleasant making the delay bearable as they were overtly communicative w all via text, email, and in person keeping is updated! HIGHLT RECOMMEND and will definitely be flying again. :)"
Pros: "Great service and smooth flight. On time, all good things."
Cons: "An individual who was very overweight sat next to me and took up half of my seat as well. I understand we all deserv to ride comfortably and my intent is not to shame them. That said, if someone can’t put the armrest down I think the airline should require them to purchase both seats as it’s very uncomfortable to be in the position of having no seat for the entire ride. I’m an average sized person so it was a challenge but even tiny people deserve the full seat they purchased. There really should be a rule or something."
Pros: "Wide array of snacks and drinks, tv/movies to watch for free, excellent staff from beginning to end, and tons of legroom. The complimentary free check of my carryon way awesome."
Cons: "I liked everything! No complaints at all."
Cons: "Six hours late, then there wasn’t enough fuel and had to wait for paperwork multiple times. Hands down the worst experience I have ever had. I will not be flying JetBlue again."
Cons: "Almost a 9 hour ordeal. 4 hour delay because of weather for flight because one crew that was supposed to take our flight had “timed out.” Didn’t take off til after 1am. Finally landed and sat on plane because a plane at our gate was “disabled.” It’s 4:33am, I’ve been off the plane for half an hour, no baggage coming out of the carousel yet and no sign of this absolutely horrific experience ending anytime soon."
Pros: "Loved all the available dedicated JetBlue staff available to answer questions. Have not flown JetBlue often but heard many great things."
Cons: "Weather delay which is out of JetBlue’s control but once we landed (6 hours later) we sat on the runway for an additional hour because our gate had a disable airplane occupying it. I think JetBlue could have done a better job ensuring a back up gate was available or giving their passenger updates on the situation."
Pros: "The crew was great, and so was a JetBlue pilot dead-heading in the seat next to me. I liked the space in the MoreSpace seat I paid for. I relieved that the upgrade seat came with boarding in the first group. Some airlines you pay for the seat, but you're still group 3 or 4 and, meaning all sorts of anxiety about the most miserable part of any flight, the dreaded fight for the overhead bins, wondering it you'll have to check the bag and then wait for it at the destination. Thank you for removing that."
Pros: "The leg space"
Cons: "Delay and the space between seats"
Cons: "I never got the opportunity to fly because I was stuck in unusual traffic in a tunnel for over an hour just minutes from the Boston airport. I was later told there was a fire. I called the 1-800-JETBLUE number and I explained that the situation. The agent said that there would be a $75 change fee and at 4:47 pm there were no more flights out that night and that I would also be charged the fare differential the following day. I quickly went on line and found a deep discounted fare on United for $56! When I got to the airport there were several other people with the same situation. Not a enough agents on staff and no concern that I might miss my new flight on United. Thank Gid I acted fast and got another flight that evening or I would have needed to spend the night in the airport like a woman and her mother traveling to San Jose! Need more professionalism !"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was delayed half a dozen times, only to be canceled. Rescheduled on a flight that was scheduled to depart two hours before the original flight. Rescheduled after an hour hold. That flight was delayed the following day. Was diverted to Baltimore only to find out only some of us on our flight are getting out by a rude agent. Then no information at all. Had to run to catch an amtrak. Later found out if I stayed I would have stayed another 13 hours in Baltimore. Missed work and had no one home to take care of my family. Oh, and travel insurance will not cover anything. The plane itself was falling apart. Seat was broken and dirty. Everyones lights were broken and it smelled."
Pros: "JetBlue has great staffdelayed by an hour"
Cons: "Delayed by an hour for a 2 hour flight!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "The plane was way too hot it was probably 80° in the plane. In the last half hour of the flight there was a lot of turbulence. The flight attendants weren’t that friendly. Woman at the gate should not be in service business."
Pros: "When I got off the plane"
Cons: "it was late, the plane was dirty, the tv screens didn't work, and the seats were small."
Pros: "I didn't like much of anything EXCEPT THE FREE WIFI. While it's nice to have all the bells and whistles (free in flight TV/movies, snacks/beverages, etc.), the basics need to be met too - which they weren't."
Cons: "I didn't like that the plane was delayed 1.5 hours for no good reason. Why have us sit on the plane in a cramped atmosphere instead of delaying it at the gate first until your ducks are in a row? Then the in-flight entertainment audio periodically cuts out, and they were resetting the TV system over 3 times. In addition, I had requested a price reduction when I booked the flight since JetBlue's website is buggy and the price went up $80 in front of my eyes while other people booked the seat I wanted, and they weren't willing to give me anything."
Cons: "Only one staff member was available at the boarding gate for most of the time prior to boarding. This was insufficient to handle the needs or passengers with questions, needing seat assignments, and so on. She did the best she could be it was not as organized as it could have been."
Pros: "leg room & movie"
Cons: "Late flight delayed"
Pros: "Most of the basics were good."
Cons: "The flight was substantially delayed and when we got to Chicago we had to wait a long time for a gate agent so that we could deplane because only one gate agent was working at that hour (10:20 p.m.). Also, the flight delay notifications came after I was close to the airport and at the airport--earlier notifications (if possible) would help. The tv/movie portion of the entertainment was not working at all."
Pros: "Changed to 3 hour earlier flight WITHOUT extra "change fee". It was FREE !! Enjoyed in flight TV with FREE drinks and snacks. As United goes backwards in customer service and costs, JetBlue leaps forward. Good work JetBlue."
Cons: "More options in snack boxes and/or food items"
Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Too long flight time I noticed the plane speed was 440 MPH most of the time. This may be the first flight I sat which was flying this slow"
Pros: "Solid crew, comfortable flight, free tv and Wi-Fi"
Cons: "A few factors led to a 6 hour delay. Not necessarily Jet Blue's fault but it was certainly a frustrating day of travel"
Pros: "The plane had 2 wings"
Cons: "Staff is rude. Customer Service couldn't possibly be worst. All their food has meat in it. Staff is slow and incompetent. Never had a more dreadful experience with an airline. TAP IS THE WORST AIRLINE I HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED, and I fly 2 times a month."
Pros: "The on flight tv was down so I couldn't listen to music like I nearly always do on my flights."
Cons: "I didn't like waiting on the tarmac after we landed for what seemed like 25 minutes or so"
Pros: "When I sat into my comfortable seat with its amazing leg room, I asked the woman next to me if she had flown Jet Blue previously. She replied that it is now her favorite airline. At the end of the trip I agreed that it is a distinctly different and great airline. My complaint is that I have to travel from NE Wisconsin to Chicago in order to use Jet Blue. When are you coming to MKE? The way the food and drink orders were handled worked well, and the selections were amazing! Needless to say, the media offered was wonderful."
Cons: "The crew did a good job, but one of the female staff seemed stressed. I hope she was able to get some relief and rest."
Cons: "Filght ( Jetblue )got delayed by 3 hrs from Boston to Newyork , and travel got postponed to the next day due to this and rescheduled in Qatar airways. There was lot of inconviniences, time losss and personal adjustments occured along with the financial loss due to the change of travel date."
Cons: "None"
Cons: "Top carrier"
Pros: "The crew was great. The pilots too."
Cons: "The audio and video at my seat did not work correctly."
Cons: "The flight attendants were fantastic!"
Pros: "great everything!"
Pros: "Well organized and easy to check in."
Cons: "No"
Cons: "Not delayed"
Pros: "this is the airline"
Pros: "It was ok"
Cons: "Seat the family together"
Pros: "Crew was amazing. Pilots were attentive to kids and answered questions. Everyone was very welcoming and helpful."
Cons: "They didn't have some of their food options (and they apologized for that up front), but then ran out of the others by the time they got half way through the plane. That was tough for a five hour flight that went through dinner time."
Cons: "Announcements were too loud in earphones (could damage ear drums) and entertainment was turned off while waiting 30 min for the gate to open."
Cons: "Wonderful"
Pros: "I love ice cream and chocolate"
Cons: "Healthy vegetarian meal choice"
Pros: "The crew really kept us updated on the many delays."
Cons: "There were SO many delays and they kept changing. At one point we got on and off the plane."
Pros: "Good entertainment options."
Cons: "Only water and coffee available. Flight had been delayed over an hour."
Pros: "Everything was good except boarding was delayed several times and even after everyone had boarded. We arrived 2 hours behind originally scheduled time as the result."
Cons: "Delta needs to try harder to minimize flight delays."
Cons: "Crew didn’t serve drinks/snacks; otherwise nice and short flight"
Pros: "The seats were ok."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 3 hours so I missed my connection in Chicago to Seattle. I’m now stick in Chicago overnight and have to be on a 6 am flight tomorrow. The Delta staff at LaGuaurdia was extremely rude and not helpful at all. Hate Delta......"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "An hour and a half late, terrible communication about scheduling"
Pros: "Good flight in air"
Pros: "The seat get’s bit hard after 14 hours."
Cons: "The food was ok but not great"
Pros: "Smooth flight."
Cons: "Tight seat. Small space."
Cons: "Plane journey awful. Speaker had a loud buzzing noise all the time so never heard a word bad landing. Rattling plane Very cold."
Cons: "I understand Mother Nature causes issues tkayakhat no one can control but when I'm receiving updates from the 3rd party travel app that isn't the airline before receiving any information directly from the airline via the gate agent or Deltas travel app and the gate agent not being able to verify the 3rd party travel app something is wrong."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Flight was horrible"
Cons: "Delays, delays, delays... first class ticket from BOS to MSP got me a 6 hour delay and a middle seat in econ main cabin at the back of the plane. Delta you suck!"
Pros: "Got to London on-time (early, actually) and safely. The in flight meal was okay. The leg room in comfort plus was great, the mobile app was awesome, and the staff (check-in, gate, cabin and flight deck) were professional and friendly all around."
Cons: "The leg room was great, but as a broad-shouldered guy, the width of the seat was miserable. Unfortunately, the Delta 767 doesn't offer any upgrade for a wider seat beyond Delta One, and my employer won't spring for that. Too bad there isn't a premium economy option. Also, the entertainment unit in the seat next to mine malfunctioned, which you wouldn't think would impact me that much except that because it was "seeing" touches randomly throughout the flight, the screen would turn on, off, brighter, dimmer, play random stuff, and just generally be as annoying as possible to everyone nearby throughout an overnight flight."
Cons: "Tray table was broken, I was downgraded from Comfort plus to main cabin after a plane swap with no mention by anyone and no compensation. Flight was delayed 45 minutes because a flight attendant was running late and then to top it off, at the end of. The flight the attendants blocked anyone fromaim cabin from leaving until all of first class had departed, even when no one was coming they still Blocked it off. This is a practice I have never seen on delta and haven't seen in aviation in almost 20 years in the US"
Pros: "Plane was on time."
Cons: "My seat assignment was in the last row of the plan when the plane was not full"
Pros: "Leg room and seats are very tight and I'm a small person."
Cons: "Coach class is very crowded."
Pros: "on time, good food, good films enough space to sleep in economy."
Cons: "the stewardess only went up one side of the plane offering eye shades and when i asked for one she seemed really miffed."
Pros: "I flew on a basic economy fare (I understand the restrictions) and was seated in Economy Comfort +, so that was appreciated."
Cons: "I could see on the Fly Delta app that I had been placed in seat 10B, but neither the app nor my boarding pass gave me a group to board with, so I assumed that I needed to board with group 3, which necessitated gate-checking my rollerboard bag. Only when I approached the gate to board did I notice on the info screen that I had been "upgraded" to Comfort + and granted boarding with the Sky Priority group. I wish this had been clearer so I could have avoided waiting to board and gate-checking my bag. Minor inconvenience but room for improvement on Delta's part."
Pros: "This was not my original transfer flight but everyone was much nicer and helpful than serious and being rude. Love Delta, I did not flight United because I wouldn’t have met my United flight once landing in ATL. The Young African American woman who was at the gate was amazing and so reassuring that I would make my flight to Chicago. Would book Delta, just because of how nice she was to me."
Cons: "Too tight and seats not comfortable."
Pros: "The Delta people were solicitous, efficient and brilliant the whole way through. We had not a bit of trouble. Our first class seats were comfortable, but with the supplied blanket, pillow and poor air conditioning it was a hot flight. The cabin personnel were wonderful as per usual, and my tasty gin and tonic soothed any discontent. I wish I could fly this way all the time!"
Cons: "The private contractor handling wheelchair assistance was terrible. A Delta employee theorized that they do not pay enough to attract and retain personnel. Our pre-arranged chair was not there, multiple calls by our Delta assistant finally got us a ride to the chair holding area, but after about 45 minutes we gave up and shuffled off to the security area on foot. Thank goodness my hubby is mobile enough for that to have been an option. When we abandoned our wait we were still 4th in line for an attendant to push the chair. If Delta has any responsibility in this it would be in the retention and compensation for the private contractor."
Pros: "Delta flights run one time and their fleet seems newer than most with comfortable seating. Having free movies in the seat back ahead of you is a big plus with a good selection of movies. Snacks are good and crew is always friendly and accommodating. We fly almost exclusively with Delta for the aforementioned reasons."
Cons: "Boarding is a hassle no matter the airline with few exceptions. You would think someone could figure and efficient method to get people on the planes. I suppose it could be the public that is the problem. Not a problem with Delta they run a good airline."
Cons: "Delay in leaving from the airport there were issues with Web checkin Crew wasnt able to give me my boarding pass for the connecting flight and kept saying going to the other counter"
Pros: "I was thankful for the early boarding with a lap infant and was very pleased with the options for entertainment on the TV monitor."
Cons: "The main issue I had was that we sat in row 34 and the noise from the engines often made it difficult to hear announcements, even with headphones in. Look into possibly zoning the audio and turning it up a click or two for rows behind the engines."
Pros: "Airline stewards were very friendly and pleasant."
Cons: "We booked with Delta, but were put on Air France. Even though we had our boarding passes in hand we had to wait in long, slow line for baggage tags because they would not print from kiosk. There was minimal Air France staff on duty serving thousands of passengers during busy season (July). While the lines grew larger, the staff was reduced from 4 to 2. Another long, slow line for customs, another long slow line for security=Charles De Gaulle airport was awful. We arrived at the airport 4 hours before our departure time and got to our boarding gate with no time to spare."
Cons: "My wife was told she could not board our flight from Boston to Paris because her passport was expired, even though it was not expired. We were told that in Europe passports cannot expire within 3 months of your departure. However, Delta never let us know about this rule until we literally were boarding the plane. How they could not make us aware of this until we were boarding the airplane is unbelievable and unacceptable. This has ruined our vacation which has been in planning for the last six months."
Cons: "We sat on-board the aircraft, at the gate, for almost 2 hours due to a weather delay. During this time, we were not offered refreshments, nor were we offered any type of "compensatory benefit" for our delay (e.g., free Wi-Fi, vouchers good toward a future flight (a $30 voucher per passenger would seem appropriate), additional SkyMiles (3000-5000 SkyMiles would seem appropriate), etc.)."
Cons: "Jet airways sucks"
Pros: "The only flight that was a bit better was from Mumbai to Hyderabad."
Cons: "Almost the entire trip, due to the following reasons: 1. The online check in process didn't work at all. The Delta staff at the Boston airport weren't pleasant and courteous at all. 2. Poor coordination between Delta & Jet Airways - the meal preference was selected before flight at the Jet Airways website but the same didn't get registered properly, even though the website confirmed to me that it was all set. This resulted in appropriate food not being available to the customer on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam. The customer had to literally starve on the flight. 3. The pursers and stewards on the flight from Boston to Amsterdam weren't pleasant and courteous at all. For anything they were asked, their responses ."
Pros: "It only took them 10 minutes to turn things around to make up time for the delay."
Cons: "The seat pockets were not cleaned."
Pros: "Delta service and conford are great."
Cons: "Pay for wifi"
Pros: "you must be kidding me!!! nothing to say good about this fly !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for meThe only good thing we arrive in Mexico"
Cons: "flying to Mexico with. my two boys !!to begin I have to call Delta to put us seat together because the time of the fight had changed!! before we are siting by de middle of the plain when a booked r three seat together !! but than i got a imail confimatin with separete seattle for the kids!!we end up sitting all the way back on the plan!! we end up sitting all the way back on the plane l!! no TVs no windows in the last sits by the only two bathrooms on the plane with two boys that was not fun at all !!The sad part I'm American Express Delta SkyMiles credit card holder and they couldn't do anything for me when I called them"
Pros: "I was notified about the delay via text before I left for the airport, which was nice. I would not have checked my email."
Cons: "Delayed for over 2 hours. I have never flown Delta before this flight and it wasn't a great representation. The flight attendants were nice but I was in a seat near the engine and it was making really weird noises. I fly almost every two weeks, so I'm used to engine noises but this was one of the loudest/most rickety sounding flights I have ever been on.. and I have flown Spirit a few times. It just didn't feel safe. Landing scared me a little too as I have landed in O'Hare countless times and have never flown so low to the highway upon entry. It felt like we were only a couple hundred feet above the cars."
Cons: "Unnecessary flight cancellation. I had friends taking the same flight at the same time at the same airport from different airlines and they came through for their customers. I received no consolation it assistance with overnight accommodations."
Pros: "Delta always has a nice professional crew. We were served within a reasonable time and I felt comfortable the whole flight."
Cons: "The pressure is the cabin with really bothering me. I've flown several times and never had the pressure to bother me but it was really hurting my head."
Cons: "The process of checking was very poor. One line was serving all of the Delta flights. Agents were very slow. Even when they started to serve my flight with priority still no impruvment. The agent who served me was so lost that he could not find the page with my picture and name in my passport!!!"
Pros: "The crew were friendly and professional!"
Cons: "Delayed and baby crying and kicking behind my seat."
Cons: "prob nothing more with in reason , could have been done - how do you eliminate fellow stupid humans ?"
Pros: "We arrived ."
Cons: "budget airline with terrible service. I did not make my return flight due to their line moving so slowly - took 2 hours in line to be told I didn’t arrive early enough. Many people in the line missed their flight - no refund and no help. Booked with another airline - not flying Suncountry again."
Pros: "The crew were awesome! Was comfortable"
Cons: "The USB ports were not charging"
Pros: "They didn’t let me on I want a refund this made me miss my birthday party in Chicago thanks for ruining 25"
Cons: "Refund"
Pros: "Crew was professional, effective communicators."
Cons: "No complimentary snacks offered. BYO entertainment."
Pros: "I like the price of the ticket."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable, staff looked like they rolled out of bed, we didn’t get any snacks only one small cup of juice for the entire flight, landing was a bit harsh. I don’t know if I’ll ever go through Sun Country again."
Cons: "Add in seat screen for entertainment"
Cons: "Entertainment app/WiFi was down. Apparently a know issue on this plane for over a week. Staff didn’t announce, you had to ask."
Pros: "Our flight was delayed over 2 hours and there was ZERO notification from the airline - we found out once we were at our original gate. Paid substantial amount to check bags and for seat assignment......after choosing seats when flight was booked online! Crew and flight were fine but will not fly Sun Country again. Too much hidden BS!"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Left on time arrived a bit early."
Cons: "Very disgusted to learn of the new carry on cost imposed by Sun Country!! Instead of punishing everyone just enforce one reasonable carry on at the gate for those who abuse it by having oversized luggage disguised as a carry on."
Pros: "Stewardess Alisa was very attentive. She realized my disability and did all she could do to accommodate me."
Cons: "Seats too small."
Cons: "Very rude ticket counter. They wouldn’t allow me to to board even though I showed up an hour, twenty minutes before take-off at their online POSTED terminal BUT they’ve moved (unfortunately no update on their web site). By the time I managed to get from terminal #2 to #5 (around LAX on a busy morning), a half hour later, the counter help wouldn’t even consider issuing me a boarding pass!"
Pros: "If you’re not looking for a super boujie experience while flying this is a great choice for you. It’s quick and simple and I had no problems at all! This was my first time flying alone and I am so happy with how it turned out :)"
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 2 hours and I could not reach MSP ontime due to which my career has had an negative performance impact. I am unhappy about the flight delay"
Pros: "I had a seat toward the front, so I boarded early-ish, which went smoothly."
Cons: "Seating was incredibly uncomfortable. The bottom cushion was worn down, so my butt was sore after just a three hour flight. Also, my neck and back were in pain after getting off the flight. I am in my 20's and don't really get sore neck or back, but the seats were just that bad. However, I did have JUST enough leg room even though I am 6'4". I'll probably avoid this airline in the future just for the horrid seats alone."
Pros: "This flight was inexpensive and the layover was very easy. Didn't have to pay to carry on luggage like other cheap options."
Cons: "No entertainment except movies to rent through flight attendant. Seats were uncomfortable. Airline is in the worst terminals with terrible food options."
Cons: "We were an hour late taking off because the pilot waited for a late passenger causing us to miss the take off firm which I feel was unfair to the entire plane who all boarded on time."
Pros: "NOTHING"
Cons: "When I checked in prior to flight, the staff person asked me if I wanted an exit seat. I asked if it is roomier than Sun Country's regular seating since I feel their regular seats are very roomy. She said yes and that they are very comforable. When I got to my seat, I found out that they do not recline. DO NOT FN RECLINE. The lady forgot to tell me that. With lower back pain, I was extremely uncomfortable, in fact I could ot sit still. Horrible flight. THe stewardess could not help me, they said flight was full. I told them of my back pain, they didnt care, nothing we can do. THen I asked for a pillow and blanket so I can support my head. I was told there was a fee for a pillow and blanket.??????? I said ok since I was looking for relief, and comfort. She came back saying she was sold out. WTF"
Pros: "I needed wheelchair assistance and they helped us quicky and directly to get thru the people to get on the plane thanks again"
Cons: "Small seats"
Cons: "A lot of delays but they handled accordingly - weather is out of their control"
Pros: "Polite and efficient"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Found an an amazing deal on Sun Country through Kayak. Easy purchase and confirmation process. Will definitely use Kayak again."
Pros: "The staff seemed to be friendly."
Cons: "Everything else was horrible."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything was awful about this travel experience. I was delayed all day and my flight from MSP to JFK took almost 8 hours. They delays were due to weather which I can understand but there was absolutely no communication from the airline and had everyone including myself extremely frustrated. We landed in Stewart, NY with no warning or information. Was a nightmare."
Pros: "I thought the flight attendant was nice."
Cons: "Our departure was very disorganized. I was told that I'd be able to board early if I checked my carry on. Not the case."
Pros: "I changed my flight because of an emergency to the next day with no charge because of a "one time courtesy." So amazing and so thankful for that."
Pros: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "The temp in the plane on the return flight was 55 degrees and freezing but they eventually turned the heat on. That was strange."
Pros: "Sun Country is the best airline in the world -"
Pros: "On-time, the connection gate was neaby"
Cons: "The airplane from LA to Minneapolis was so old, uncomfortable seating, rough take off."
Pros: "Good prices, good friendly crew, arrived at least a 1/2 hour earlier than we were supposed to..overall excellent"
Cons: "Better snack selection other than that it was an excellent experience"
Pros: "I am a large woman and they were so kind in helping me with those embarrassing issues like needing an extender descretely. The ladies were professional and personal. I really appreciated them."
Cons: "As a general idea for Sun country maybe have a Google map up to see where we are. Maybe it's a bad idea but I love looking out the window and knowing."
Pros: "The flight had to make an emergency landing. I understand the stress that can have, but we kept being told different things, the people that waited patiently ended up getting the short end and sat around all day. When we were told we would know more in 5 minutes, that took 25, when we were told we would know more and to keep sitting there in the small area we would know more in about 20 minutes, it too 45."
Cons: "Kept being misdirected."
Pros: "The flight was fine. Uneventful which is wonderful. I did not eat & did not utilize the entertainment so can not comment on those items."
Cons: "My only comment is that a child was using an electronic device during the flight without headphones. It would have been appreciated if the attendants could have suggested earbuds, headphones, or at least asked that the volume be decreased out of respect for other passengers."
Pros: "Excellent price and it wasn't over booked. The flight had no food so I can't give it a 5star rating (sorry)...."
Pros: "Their alcoholic options are much better than Delta. The flight from LAX to MSP was quite smooth, only a couple instances of turbulence."
Cons: "My known traveler number did not sync with my ticket, so I couldn't go in the TSA pre check line."
Pros: "clean plane and legroom good, esp. for tall person."
Cons: "On return flight, gates changed without any announcement. About 1/2 hour before return flight boarded they announced there would be no bathrooms on flight available. This would have been prohibitive for me flying that flight. Situation was rectified and they got two bathrooms working but it caused a great deal of undue stress. Is flying without facilities even legal?"
Pros: "Nothing"
Pros: "I was unable to use the ticket from LAX to MSP due to a death in my family!. I had to book another earlier flight with another airline to get home to a funeral. Unfortunately, Sun Country didn't have a flight back to MSP the day / time I needed. When I contacted the regarding my cancelation they refunded my money, no questions asked!"
Pros: "Offer to check carry-on for free."
Cons: "I had to return my rental car about 5 hours before flight and didn't realize I would have to wait for Sun Country's ticketing to open for two more hours. Have to pay for blankets and pillows? Then turn temperature up."
Pros: "Sun Country was able to move me to an earlier flight and I really appreciated that."
Cons: "It would have been nice if the pilot would have announced what we were flying over. There was beautiful scenery that I couldn't identify."
Pros: "It started with the crew at the desk being very helpful, attentive when we came to check in. And both times, coming and going, they were this way...and friendly. This sets the tone for the rest of the trip."
Pros: "We were able to board first as mom was in a wheel chair"
Cons: "Everything was weighted in favor of passengers. Very nice"
Cons: "Did not eat or have entertainment on the way over so you could say NA."
Pros: "Short lines and prompt check-in. Flights took off and landed on time. Lots of young kids but generally quiet. "Budget" airlines like Sun Country and Southwest have separate Humphrey terminal but it is less crowded and easy to navigate."
Cons: "Staff managed to spend almost the whole trip passing out drinks/snacks. Like, does it really take 3.5 hours to do that? Maybe it does. Announcements were informal - really felt like we were on a training flight. Staff wasn't helping people with bags or to find their seats like other airlines do. Maybe this more relaxed atmosphere is why the prices are lower? If so, that's fine with me - but doesn't seem like you're gunning to attract more business or be anything other than the airline in between the disgusting model of Spirit and the lame cost-cutting of major airlines. Like, innovation is only possible via dissension, and I'm sure your business is having the same troubles with idiot senior leaders as every other US corporate business is, but if you're going to ask for feedback, the feedback is stop being so blah and stand for something other than your Board. Plenty of ideas out there - stop being so pro-short term profit and start having some fun!"
Cons: "chose seats for the fight back weeks ahead of time but when we checked in my husbands seat was moved10+ rows behind us and from an aisle to a center seat. He is 6 feet 8 inches tall, luckily there was an open exit aisle seat an they upgraded him without charge...otherwise would have been a horrible fathers day for all"
Pros: "Crew, on time, wheelchair service"
Cons: "Cramped seating, food"
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Late arrival. Circling MSP due to weather"
Pros: "empty plane"
Cons: "food"
Pros: "Yes"
Cons: "Good flight"
Pros: "We didn’t crash and die. That’s the only positive."
Cons: "Before we boarded I listened to a couple described how they always went ahead in line at boarding because no one ever stopped them. They described how they waited until group 3 was called and then went right through. While we were waiting, we watched them do it again. If you need to cram people into tiny spaces to be profitable, then you cannot allow them to make it worse by putting back their seats. I spent 90 minutes with a seat back jammed into my chest. We were ignored when handing out snacks, probably because we were invisible behind the seats pushed in our faces. It was one of the most miserable flights I’ve experienced."
Cons: "Absolutely horrible plane. This 737-700 sucks. I’m in premium economy and it’s horrible. Very narrow seats. Very tight. Horrible. At airport American Airlines jfk ground crew were non existent when the aircraft pulled into the gate."
Pros: "The fact that I got to my destination"
Cons: "Having air conditioning on an aircraft is critical on a hot summer day. Especially when a flight is delayed 2 hours on the tarmac! Miserable."
Cons: "New York to Fresno Glight delayed 2 hours."
Cons: "As a handicaped disabled not able to walk and should be using a wheel chair,as I know from my many previous travels with other companies like lufthanza, klm..etc, I used to be the first traveller to go to the air craft when loading it to take off and the last one who would be leaving it after landing. Even when going through the check and security points I used to go in a special route especially for the handicaped but going with all other normal travelers lines with such amount of time waiting and crowdness is completely inconvenient. what happened through the trip was quit different , going with the travelers or after when they are boarding the craft make it very hard and time consuming , Wish you take care of it, as it's a very important handicaped service. Thank you for taking the time to read my comment"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Before the flight boarded the crew had to be paved. They were busy chatting at a different gate while the whole flight had to wait for them. No sense of urgency. Very unprofessional. We had the front seat in first class. All night long the crew were talking loudly- difficult to sleep. They should be conscious of the passengers"
Pros: "Timely"
Cons: "Hot plane, no phone charging available."
Pros: "I liked the room."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. Could not get seats together."
Pros: "Our seat upgrade was great. had plenty of leg rooms. Staff was attentive and flight was once again comfortable."
Cons: "Took a while to embark on time. The in flight usb on all of our seats wasn't functioning at all. At least the entertainment portions was working."
Pros: "Crew was nice."
Cons: "Having to check my carryon even though I was in the 12th row. I saw some passengers putting two items in the overhead, which makes it unfair to others."
Pros: "Flight was comfortable and enjoyable. Entertainment was great lots of films to choose. Service by the flight crew was excellent"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "This was a nighmare!"
Cons: "My flight Paris/London/Manchester?Chicago was the mos impleasant experience I ever had. On July the flight was schedule for 9...pm then delayed for two hours because of a fire, other passengers said, in London. At around 11pm, we were asked to line up for boarding. We stayed on line for an hour and fnally to be told the flight was cancelled. We were treated less than animals by British Airway. No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!!! No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!! We slept on benches at the airport. To be fair to you, I will not recommend British Airway to anyone."
Pros: "Easy flight"
Pros: "We took off and landed safely."
Cons: "Felt very low budget and cramped."
Pros: "The comfort of the plane and the continued update on my flight delay."
Cons: "The flight was delayed but no fault of American."
Cons: "The vegetarian meal is always vegan, I miss the dairy :("
Pros: "Veggie Asian meal was great - curry."
Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Seven hours siting in a fridge. Asked stewardess to turn it up. She didn't."
Pros: "Entertainment on screens"
Cons: "The gate agent made us starting in boarding group 6 out of 9 to check sizes of bags in the size box and she got into a verbal fight with another passenger. One guy told her she could board but the gate agent said no it didn't fit and she couldn't board. Then the agent claimed she had to gate check her bag and claimed there were no overhead spaces left. So everyone after that had to gate check. When I boarded there were at least 8 empty bins and I had not even gotten to my seat in row 22. The gate agent lied and slowed down the entire boarding process because she want to win a fight and show dominance over a passenger."
Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Bag checkin had already been done online but did it again in terminal, weigh in lady not helpful or friendly, quite abrupt. Onboard seating cramped and worse when front seats were reclined."
Pros: "Smooth flight, got in early."
Cons: "Breakfast was average. Could do better"
Pros: "Great aircraft, UK staff kindly assisted to get us family seating near each other"
Cons: "A passenger caused a delay in security, and as I'm rushing for the gate, the agent closed the door and told me I couldn't board. She then marked me as a no-show, while she was standing right next front of her. I had to spend the next 4 hrs on the phone, trying to get my tickets sorted out. Then, upon arriving at Heathrow,... No luggage. They told me it was still in Chicago. Upon finally receiving my bags, I find them full of sawdust and sand, and several items damaged. I will NEVER fly American Airlines again, and I will highly recommend to my friends and family to avoid them like them plague. Horrible service! Nothing but a run-around and not once did the agents apologise, even after admitting that my problems on this journey were due to a mistake made by one of their agents."
Pros: "Absolutely no part of the flight was comfortable or enjoyable."
Cons: "The plane itself was clearly an older model, lacking many amenities I’ve come to expect flying coach. The overhead compartments were too small for larger carryon luggage, and no one on the crew alerted passengers to this. Thus, many passengers had to go against the traffic of those still boarding to find space for luggage. My seat was at the back of the plane so I had to spend close to 15 extra minutes walking back to the front against boarding passengers to find a place to put my luggage. A simple warning from the crew when I boarded would have prevented mine and many others unnecessary trouble simply boarding. During a very turbulent flight, the captain nor the crew made any announcements about turbulence, our safety, or our progress. Also during the flight, one of the flight attendants got into an awkward verbal spat with one of the passengers. Completely unprofessional and bothersome. Additionally, I had fallen asleep when dinner was being first served, but woke up before it was finished. A flight attendant approached me and asked if I’d like a dinner to which I replied “Yes”. The flight attendant never returned with a dinner for me, thus I did not eat the dinner, which I had paid for. Lastly, and perhaps most disturbing, was what transpired when a passenger had a medical emergency. With no warning, all of the airplane lights turned on and a loud “CODE RED” was announced over the sound system. Imagine being a sleeping passenger like myself, during a very turbulent flight, to be suddenly awoken to bright lights and a CODE RED shouted loudly over the PA. I’m not overexaggerating when I say that I was preparing for the worst. A truly terrifying moment that I am certain was shared with many others on board. To make matters even worse, as a flight attendant rushed to find a first aid kit (which she had trouble finding) she opened up the compartment over my partners seat and dropped a passengers ipad on her head. The flight attendant did return to apologize, but it was little consolation compared to the stress and panic the crew created. I have flown many times, and this was easily the worst flight of my life. American Airlines should be ashamed of the conditions they put their passengers in and they have lost two customers for good."
Pros: "Arrived on time"
Cons: "Baggage was lost. Did not offer beverage during the flight. Did not offer headphones during the flight. Crew was rude and took it out on the passengers. Not me, but the guy sitting next to me caught a ton of attitude over nothing from one particular crew member and no greetings/farewells on boarding and arrival."
Pros: "Plane and staff were great. Very easy boarding process and we landed early in Dublin airport after an hour delayed take off. Food and staff service was very good, no complaints."
Cons: "No idea how they messed up the take off and landing times so greatly. left an hour late and arrived an hour early. No personal entertainment screen and plugs were not working."
Cons: "Small seats. No entertainment old plane"
Pros: "Nothing in particular"
Cons: "Flight attendants"
Pros: "Boarding and flight were on time."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I bought travel insurance as I do with any trip. I have a complicated family emergency that forced me to call off the trip. Being that I bought trip insurance, I felt good. Well turns out they make you jump through so many hoops that your travel insurance fee is useless. I sent a letter to Allianz (the company that handles the travel insurance) and blasted them for their insensitivity in a difficult time. Going forward, I will not be purchasing travel insurance in the future. It may sound irrational but if you think about it, travel insurance is the tax on gullible people. You hear travel insurance and one assumes that if you spend the extra money on the insurance and something comes up, you can at least get much of your money back. Don't count on it! It's a 1/1000 chance they will do the right thing so the odds are not in people's favor. If you want to be smart, use the money you would have spent on travel insurance on some pre flight cocktails at the airport bar. Air travel is hellish enough without scams like Allianz!"
Pros: "Boarding was prompt, flight attendants polite and accommodating."
Cons: "If I am in business class and platinum status, why can't I use the lounge - which is only available to Platinum status going to LA or SF, Latin America but not to Cancun. American Airlines needs to change this policy."
Pros: "This flight was enjoyable because everyone could choose their own entertainment. No one offered headphones, so I was glad that I had my own."
Cons: "Our flight was 3 + hours behind schedule. We didn't get to take off until around 11:30pm when our flight was supposed to take off at 7:05pm. I have missed my itinerary and cruise trip with family members. Now I have to wait 2 days to catch a cruise and reunite with my family in Italy. It's not fear that the airline don't take consideration for this kind of situation. We understand that Things happens and the airline takes precautions to make sure everything is okay before take off. However, I'm very frustrated and disappointed."
Cons: "Cancelled flight due to multiple mechanical malfunctions that should have been checked previous to boarding. Held on the plane for 4 hours, another 4 hours in terminal of the closed airport once allowed to deplane, no communication, no food or water, put up in a hotel an hour and half away despite this being NYC, terrible customer service, no compensation, unable to get tofinal destination earlier than 24 hours later missed events in final destination overall financial and personal losses due to the inadequacy of the airline."
Cons: "We boarded on time but were kept waiting 2 hours on the runway The entertainment system was broken so no screens worked the whole flight! Terrible,"
Cons: "Small plane, 6 seats per row, no individual entertainment. Not comfortable for a 7 hour trip."
Cons: "They had no record of this portion of my trip, after a few people checked they found the Chicago to Ammon part so they added me onto a flight from Washington to Chicago. All should of went well from there but they sent me to the wrong gate. Luckily I just made it to the correct gate for boarding. Upon arriving at Chicago there was no one available to provide information on how to get to Royal Jordanian gates. Also on my AA portion of my flight coming into The U S in New York the flight was cancelled and I was told the next flight Available was next day (18hr delay) at the other NY airport. I had to have someone drive from D.C. (My destination) to pick me up"
Pros: "What I enjoyed about this flight is that I eventually made it to Chicago."
Cons: "Flight was delayed several times - blamed on Chicago ATC. The food offered was not suitable for First Class - there was chicken and vegetarian option. The FA was rather slow in serving and clearing trays. She was not interested in going around and asking for refills - when I inquired about it at dessert time, she didn't come back for 15 minutes and I had to ring the call button - she informed me they didn't have my drink of choice, so it was OK for her not to come back and tell me that. Service was terrible in First Class. American should seriously do something about that."
Pros: "The flight was on a Boeing 737 plane with IFE at every seat. I found that very helpful and watched movie and a half."
Cons: "The Priority experience at JFK is not quite Priority - just 1 TSA agent checking priority customers and not all the time - if the security line is full, no one moves."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable and kept to schedule."
Cons: "AA staff at JFK airport were rude and unhelpful. Staff onboard the flight were excellent."
Pros: "I didn't go with AA, I was rebooked with Jet blue but AA would have been just fine"
Cons: "LATAM had a 12 hour delay which caused me to miss two flights. They tried to blame AA for it. Latam also tried to blame AA when they lost my bags on the way there."
Pros: "The staff were amazing. Very accommodating and with great dispositions. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "For an international flight the seats were extremely tiny and the plane itself only had a few tv screens posted in the middle of the plane so everyone had to watch the same thing."
Pros: "The free cookies were very good and the service was great the flight was smooth and quick"
Pros: "The crew were beyond excellent and tried to help with the seats. They were also very apologetic for the seat issue."
Cons: "Our seats had no power and couldn't adjust. The crew manually did it for us but we never got it to go close to flat. We were on an old 757 which is such an embarrassing product for AA compared to the new or refurbished planes."
Pros: "The Boeing 777 200 was refurbished with the new business class pods"
Cons: "Modern cabin space"
Pros: "The air stewardess was friendly and courteous, the meal were tasty and sufficient."
Cons: "The flight came in early but we had to wait over thirty minutes for luggage to arrive."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "This was the worst flight ever. AA is the worst airlines ever."
Pros: "It was five star all the way."
