Pros: "Smooth quiet flight."
Cons: "Mac and cheese isn’t what I was expecting for vegetarian."
Pros: "I have never been treated so poorly by counter people in my life!"
Cons: "After 2 hour delay, the flight was cancelled. NO ONE helped to find another flight. After waiting in line for 2 hours, the ticket agent handed me a card and said I had to call the 800 number. The person on the phone said I had to talk to ticket agent to go standby on a flight to Munich and the ticket agent told me I had to call. I was caught in a loop and no one helped. Then when it became apparent I wasn't getting out that night I was informed that there were no hotel vouchers and I would have to find my own hotel! After searching for an hour for a hotel (all were sold out in Boston) I called a friend who lives outside of Boston. No one gave me a taxi voucher because it was not to a hotel. LUFTHANSA customer service is the WORST!!!!!!!!"

Cons: "Too hot"
Pros: "Staff, very good."
Cons: "Space for sitting and functioning. Flight monitor not functioning."
Pros: "The staff was friendly and professional"
Cons: "The seats were too cramped, no chance to sleep on an overnight flight. In fact my back was quite sore from being cramped in the seat with no leg room and no under seat room for a small backpack. I’m only 5’2”"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very friendly and professional. The food was good too. The flight was right on time."
Pros: "Lots of space....very comfortable seat."
Cons: "Can’t think of a thing."
Cons: "Very little leg room, when perso in front of you reclines it’s impossible to open table"
Cons: "The list of movies was poor"
Cons: "Comfort was good because flight was not full and I didn't have someone sitting next to me. Otherwise the seats are too cramped and crowded in Economy. Also had to call to find out if I had to pay for seat assignment. Couldn't find information on website. Had difficulty finding correct phone number and getting through to customer service."
Pros: "The service was amazing. Why can’t US carriers be like them?!"
Cons: "They didn’t let us in the flight because the first flight was missed! It was a terrible experience to wait at the airport calling Lufthansa Airlines over and over again with no result..."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Nothing to mention"
Pros: "Beautiful new plane — supremely clean"
Pros: "I can say with confidence; there was nothing that was good. Wait, the bathrooms were nice."
Cons: "The food was horrible, the staff was rude, my flight was delayed 4 and a half hours, the plane was so hot I felt like I was going to pass out, the seats are way too small and too close to each other."
Pros: "Nice plane. On time, excellent service, great entertainment options. I almost always fly Lufthansa as it’s the best value for the price."
Cons: "Stroller damaged by cargo people"
Pros: "My booking and ticketing went very well Lufthansa was great"
Pros: "Good service. Multiple languages."
Cons: "Lights were on too much. No time to sleep."

Cons: "Can't think of a thing."
Pros: "On time, very pleasant crew, good, ample food."
Pros: "Good food and movies"
Cons: "seat had problems mechanically"
Pros: "Comfortable seating so it was easy to sleep. It was a night flight and I spent most of this flight, eating dinner and breakfast and sleeping. Great cabin attendants who accommodated every need without being requested."
Cons: "The check in and boarding at Logan airport was horrendous. The gate attendants didn't provide the same quality of attention and information that the inflight crew did."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was good and the crew was very nice, my flight was early and the boarding was very efficient. The meal was simple but good and warm. The plane was very new and clean."
Cons: "The seats could've been wider with more leg room, I ended up slightly squished for my flight which was from Boston to Munich"
Pros: "Planes were new. Delayed flights but caught up by staff."
Cons: "Food was terrible. Check in process chaotic. Service was fair."
Pros: "Crew nice. Clean aircraft. Flight smooth, arrived to destination 40 min earlier. Nothing to complain except I wish there was more room for legs . Food okish, coffee / tea were good, tomato juice not good, did not try the wines. Biggest disappointed was the breakfast in quality only carbs : muffin, granola bar and tiny fruit salad where most of the fruit was frozen. But these are small things, overall a very good flight, I will definitely fly again with them. I watched a couple of movies released this year that I wanted to see. Good job Lufthansa!"
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was friendly and efficient."
Pros: "comfort, crew"
Cons: "long delay which made me miss my connecting flight, poor choice of on-board entertainment"
Pros: "We paid for extra legroom, if not the trip would've been very uncomfortable"
Cons: "I thought the food was very bad"
Pros: "Excellent service....very comfortable."
Pros: "Clarity of informations"
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "Food wine and professional courteous staff. So much nicer than American airlines"
Pros: "Clean, comfortable, good blankets and lighting. Perfect for what I needed."
Pros: "Dinner was good fairly interesting and wholesome. I appreciated having real silverware, albeit only 3/4 of normal size. But for an 8:35 flight, most people would have already eaten. In contrast, 'breakfast' was a muffin, small cup of sliced fruit, and a granola bar. For a flight leaving at 8:30 pm and arriving at 10 AM, I would think breakfast, not dinner, would get the emphasis. Did get some free wine with dinner."
Cons: "$35 bucks per flight leg to reserve your seat seems rude and harsh. THey don't tell you til AFTER you book the flight that seat selection is extra - spendy extra... Rude."
Pros: "Comfort, choice in movies, leg room, toilets on one level and plenty, staff helpful"
Pros: "Great food, on time arrival"
Cons: "Seats are very tight."
Pros: "Overall the flight was mostly fine. It was a huge plane, but boarding and exiting were efficiently handled by the crew. The seats were comfortable and there was sufficient leg room. Meals were totally acceptable for an international flight, and the complimentary booze was immensely appreciated."
Cons: "My biggest gripe, however, was with the malfunctioning entertainment system directly in front of my wife's seat. The screen intermittently flickered on and off, and would go black for long streches of time. Kudos to the attentive crew for trying their best to fix the device during the flight, but their efforts did not solve the problem. It was disappointing not to have a working entertainment system for such a long international flight--it would have made the experience much more comfortable and enjoyable."
Pros: "The entertainment was terrific for a long flight. Staff was friendly and helpful."
Pros: "The crews were awesome and very friendly professional"
Cons: "I booked a business class, round trip ticket, only to find out that one of the legs was not."
Cons: "Cabin crew makes way too much noise on an overnight flight. On these flights, the focus should be on letting passengers rest, and limiting announcements, even if that seems to take away from the perceived level of service."
Pros: "The crew was efficient and well trained"
Cons: "The food needed salt and the bread was a little dry."
Cons: "The seats could have been more comfortable and . The plane was over booked"
Pros: "The crew was as amazing as they were 9 years ago when I flew Aer Lingus. The plane was very clean and comfortable. The entertainment that we could choose from very good. Something for everyone was provided."
Cons: "One thing that I would like to see improved is for the announcements to be spoken slower than they were. The announcements were so quick that I could not understand what was being said. This should be an easy fix so I have no worries ."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. I suggested I take another flight, they kept on saying we will not be late . Well i missed both connecting flights."
Pros: "Friendly people, plenty of food on the plane.."
Pros: "Both ground crew and flight crew were courteous and friendly."
Cons: "The meal was between edible and mediocre. It would have been nice if the hot beverages were served with the mini breakfast before landing."
Pros: "Decent legroom, pillows and blankets, food and drink all at no cost (paid for bag, opted not to pay for seats and still ended up together)."
Cons: "The flight is advertise as a British airways flight which flies out of teminal E in Boston. In reality the flight is through aer lingus which flies through terminal C. This should be clarified upon booking...."
Cons: "Supposed to leave Boston at 9:30 pm, instead 1:30 am. It was said they knew this the day before and sent emails to passengers. No one who I spoke to, including myself, got one. Aer Lingus hired another carrier to do this flight—plane, crew —no Aer Lingus personnel. Everyone was nice, but. Had made arrangement for early morning checkin. Got to the hotel SO late that they waved a fee and had our room ready. Was going to sightsee the first afternoon—basically lost a day of seeing Dublin."
Pros: "Timely departure."
Cons: "Staff did not seem engaged in customer service, did not go up and down the aisles to collect cups, paper, etc. very disappointing in tight space."
Pros: "We arrived safely."
Cons: "They announced that it was different aircraft, different airline operating the flight. It was an hour late. Then they lost our luggage."
Pros: "No delays. Reasonably comfortable"
Cons: "Not a single vegetarian option on the flight ??!?"
Pros: "I fly a lot in the US. Most of the time I’m afaid of the US flight attendants because they act like I’m bothering them when I ask a question. Aer Lingus flight attendants were so nice and SMILED even at 3am! Great service!"
Cons: "Dropped myself and my partner from our connecting flight from Heathrow to Boston cause of a plane switch. Provided no reason for why we were selected. Then was put on a flight to Dulles and then to Boston. Ended up arriving home about 5 and a half hours later than anticipated due to BA's incompetence. Awful day of travel. Also the plane's temperature was HOT! I've never experienced such discomfort on a flight."
Pros: "Food was good, individual entertainment system was good."
Cons: "Cramped spaces"
Pros: "Staff were nice"
Cons: "The seats were exceptionally narrow. Seats were firm and uncomfortable, my entire body was aching and it was impossible to sleep bc the cabin lights were on the entire flight . I’ve flown to Europe via British airways before and I can’t even compare the two. THe thought of having to fly back in the same aircraft is giving me cold sweats and i wish I didn’t have to"
Pros: "Tail winds shortened the flying time by 45 minutes"
Cons: "seats... no space menu.... skip it movie choice ... fair at best"
Pros: "Was exceptionally impressed that the cabin crew made a cabin-wide announcement concerning a passenger with a peanut allergy. Other airlines could learn a lot in this department. Keep up the good work!"
Pros: "In flight service was good."
Cons: "Check in desk is always packed."
Pros: "Everyone was super cheerful and happy to help."
Pros: "Jet blue had best seats by far and Dunkin Donut coffee was to die for"
Pros: "Flight crew was great! Food was better than most airlines I’ve flown. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "Having to pay for a glass of wine with dinner... every other airline I fly gives free alcoholic beverages"
Pros: "Nothing but the price, flight was Aer Lingus to PRA and was less than expected"
Pros: "Check-in was quick and easy. The plane was on time."
Cons: "The seating was cramped. The video screen did not work and after rebooting the selections were poor. I would have enjoyed a current live steam news program."
Pros: "Fast. Not too much time wasted between connection. Dublin = small airport, it's really comfortable..."
Cons: "Not enough room for my legs Too close to the "babies rows" = difficult to sleep. It's a pity to pay now to change a seat in the same category"
Pros: "The crew was VERY friendly and attentive. They responded quickly to requests and were very pleasant. Everyone was showed attention to details and put customer comfort at the forefront. They allowed people to relocate to seats allowing for more room and comfort once everyone boarded and empty seats were identified. The snacks and meals were tasty and generous. The entertainment options offered something for everyone - great music and movie choices. I would definitely fly Aer Lingus again."
Cons: "Flight delayed by a day. No reasonable efforts to get us there through another airline."
Cons: "I had to go to Berlin last minute because my husband had a serious accident. I booked the flight and went right to airport. They denied my boarding because it was 50 min from take off. They could have done something. I had to book another last minute on delta and they took cate if it because that flight was also less than an hour to takeoff too. I will NEVER fly aer lingus again"
Pros: "We had an excellent experience flying with Aer Lingus! We had a little trouble in the beginning due to my husbands CPAP machine. We did not realize you need a doctor’s note in order to fly! The first girl, Ajla, was sweet and just doing her job as she explained to us that we needed the note. My husband and I were upset, but she remained calm and kept a smile on her face. She got her supervisor, Ismail, to help us with our situation. We were able to resolve our problem with his help and check into our flight. Sean P helped us check into our flight and got us all situated. Ismail was amazing and upgraded our seats AND escorted us through security to make sure we would get to our flight with extra time to relax before we boarded! After our rocky start at check in Ismail made everything all better!! I highly recommend this Aer Lingus team at Logan International Airport!"
Cons: "No entertainment for a 3 hour flight??"
Cons: "Lost my luggage for two days. Follow-up on lost luggage was extremely poor. As far as plane flight: No place to charge phone on transatlantic flight. Charged for *all* food and drinks including 4 Euros for cup of tea! Plane was very late leaving, and very late arriving. Plane seats were significantly smaller than on other airlines' international flights. Can't see any reason to fly Aer Lingus again."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The fact that beer and wine had to be paid for. It is such a small thing to make passengers welcome and feel good on their trip! Lufthansa and Swiss Air don't charge for alcohol on transatlantic flights."
Pros: "Entertainment would have been great.. if my screen didn't keep blanking out."
Cons: "They ran out of Sheppard's pie!!"
Cons: "They need to tell travelers starting in noneuropean countries that their luggage will be separated and arrive on different carousel than travelers starting in Europe on same flight."
Pros: "Having two seats together but separate from the others. The departure time and connection to Edinburgh were also convenient."
Cons: "As with most other airlines, I don't like not having a direct flight from Boston to Edinburgh."
Cons: "very confusing to print boarding passes"
Cons: "It was supposed to be a British airways flight but it ended up being an aer lingus flight."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and the plane was clean."
Cons: "The rows were terribly tight (no one in my group is over 5'1" and neither of us could cross our legs). The cabin was too bright and the announcements were too frequent to be able to rest."
Pros: "Service was great, everyone was really helpful"
Cons: "We froze the entire trip each way as we had the exit seats"
Pros: "The in-flight staff were also very helpful."
Pros: "Great service overall!"
Cons: "The wifi did not work"
Cons: "The food was not tasty. Poor flavor. I had the Shepherds pie. And although I was grateful to have a meal offered, this one was a little off in flavor."
Pros: "Crew were professional and attentive Plane was clean and mechanically sound Take off and landing were on time or earlier"
Cons: "Because we bought seats from a third party vendor and not directly through Aer Lingus, we had terrible seats (right across from the bathroom) on both long flights. We could not check in on line until 2 hours before the flight and the seats available to us were single seats with no options to change. The AL staff at the airport told us that we should have booked through them directly but as you know the flight prices would then have been several hundred dollars additional for each. Seats were SO CLOSE, way too close for a 6+ hour flight Crew allowed passengers to drink alcohol until they were totally inebriated, which was unpleasant for many of us"
Pros: "Great flight, smooth, nice crew, newer movies to watch, I couldn't ask for anything more"
Pros: "Not much. Very disappointed It was no working tv. Plane again dirty. Uncomfortable seats. Made it difficult to travel with children."
Cons: "Same as above. I was very surprised"
Pros: "Only $32 per person and you get to board with business class."
Pros: "Literally nothing."
Cons: "It could have happened."
Cons: "nothing - service for the money was top notch"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled."
Pros: "Boarding process was very quick."
Cons: "Some sort of entertainment. There was nothing."
Pros: "Seats had tv monitor"
Cons: "Check in was horrible and inefficient. The seats are smaller compared to most major airlines (Delta, AA, Air France, KLM)"
Cons: "The seating is appealing. Impossible to sleep. I will be “ saddle sore “ for days. Please look at the padding and upgrade"
Pros: "New clean plane"
Cons: "Limited leg room if unable to upgrade. Unexciting food."
Pros: "Service and entertaiment"
Cons: "Delayed 1.5 hours and a few people missed connections."
Pros: "The crew made the flight quite pleasant"
Pros: "Gave me a bagel before landing."
Cons: "Boarding process was disorganized, no one helping adjust suitcases to maximize space (one guitar laid on its back instead of standing on its side took an entire bin instead of half), the flight attendant woke me up to lift my seat back because the person behind me wanted to eat. Their flawed design is not my problem."
Cons: "I didn’t receive my bag and I lost one day waiting for it without going anywhere . Without any information about the delivery time . Very disappointing about that services , I even couldn’t change and I still waitingggg"
Pros: "It went well . No problems."
Pros: "The staff/crew were lovely!"
Cons: "Older plane, so no captioned movies."
Pros: "Comfy. Adjustable headrests. Complimentary food and drink."
Cons: "Food options were a bit limited but overall everything tasted good. The screens were very old and low quality so it was very hard to see the movies but the selection of media was good."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "We had a 30 minute delay for technical reasons leaving JFK and then spent 60 minutes taxiing/waiting to takeoff. During the flight the pilot made up about 15minutes but then a Heathrow circled for 20 minutes this caused us to miss our connecting fight what are it worse is that BAnever todos we had issued our flight even though they knew but the time we landed that we could no take it through security in time . It wa very confusing trying to figure out that we had to reschedule and where and how to do it."
Pros: "Comfy, but small seats. Good food, nice crew"
Cons: "Small, old, buggy entertainment screen. Seats very narrow"
Cons: "The plane was dirty"
Cons: "air condition from above and from everywhere, it was too cold for me."
Pros: "very comfortable but because it was not a full flight"
Cons: "The only problem that I had with my flight is that my luggage did not arrive on the same flight. Possibly due to my connecting flight from DCA to JFK. Both American Airlines and British Airways reassured me that it would be at Gatwick Airport when I arrived. Unfortunately, it did not. It took approximately four days to get my luggage. This was definitely a lessons learned."
Pros: "Modern individual entertainment stations. Comfortable leather (or perhaps synthetic leather) seats. Friendly helpful crew."
Cons: "I was seated between 2 people, and it felt like very little space."
Cons: "Unable to book a seat in advance"
Cons: "I would have preferred a larger breakfast. For a flight departing after midnight, a dinner was not necessary—but a good breakfast was!!"
Cons: "When I got to London British airways refused to board the plane that was originally scheduled to leave for Warsaw because there were not enough passengers. That happened twice. I was at the airport for over 12hrs and the airline didn't offer an explanation at all or even a food voucher. It was tortourous"
Cons: "The aircraft (flight operated by American Airlines) was so old that in Economy class there weren't individual screens on the back of the front seat. I haven't seen anything like that since the 1990s! There was no USP or outlet to charge phones or ipads so i couldn't even use my entertainment. Passengers should be informed in advance or given a significant discount. Very disappointed."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Security - I was screened and it was uncomfortable and they kept the lights on for a while overnight"
Pros: "The crews don't stop giving away foods/drinks! They kept asking the passengers if we need aanything."
Cons: "Not sure, but I felt the spca is a bit smaller than other flights."
Pros: "Extremely pleasant crew!"
Cons: "Very crowded flight and plane."
Pros: "Glass of wine"
Cons: "Old plane - good horrible no are room"
Pros: "The staff"
Cons: "The food, the seats were old and cramped and i could feel every movement from the ppl behind and actually got shouted at by the man in front of me because i put my water bottle in the pouch in my seat. He thought i was punching the seat. inflight entertainment was brutal, limited selection of movies and bad ones at that. The screen was old and pixelated..... Food was bland and not edible. It was a red eye and we were not given eye masks, toothbrushes or ear buds. Horrble experience ill never fly BA again"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive"
Cons: "The flight was a bit delayed. Overall a good experience!"
Pros: "Pilot announcements"
Cons: "Poor customer from flight attendants"
Pros: "Crew polite"
Cons: "Boarding was chaotic"
Pros: "It was on time and transfer was easy"
Pros: "Nice cabin crew"
Cons: "Old media system and plane"
Pros: "A lot of space for legs"
Pros: "Chair room"
Cons: "No free food"
Pros: "Great staff. Helpful and friendly. I had a comfy seat on the aisle and the plane wasn't crowded so I had an empty seat between me and the next passenger. The food was good. The movie/TV options were fun. I was entertained the whole way to London."
Cons: "Even though it was Finnair it was quite difficult to get my boarding passes and was unable to choose the seats on my long flight. I had to get my boarding passes through American Airlines and then flew through British Airways. It would have been very frustrating/difficult to a new traveler. The flights themselves were very good, they were accommodating and was able to move my seat for me in JFK, the flight with British Airways was good."
Cons: "My flight to NYC was delayed 2 hours because of weather and I got a notification that this flight was delayed as well. Got to the counter at 10:50 (flight was delayed to 11:48) and they would not let check in. Ended up missing all my connecting flights and had to pay an additional $1600 as a result."
Pros: "Food was tasty"
Cons: "I was not able to select my seat until 24 hours before the flight without paying, which I think is ridiculous. Once I checked in 24 hours before, I was still not able to select my seat. The problem was related to me booking through a partner airline. The partner (American Airlines) couldn't help me because they couldn't access the BA seats. And BA couldn't help me on the phone to select my seat for some other reason (I can't remember). I had to wait until I got to JFK a few hours before the flight, by which time all the seats were filled and I was stuck in a middle seat. Basically, I think there needs to be better communication or coordination between BA and their partner airlines to help customers before the flight, and also it is absurd to charge $35 to choose their seat."
Pros: "We had a close connection so they moved us to the front of plane before landing to ensure we were the first off the plane."
Pros: "The food and entertainment options were both above average."
Cons: "The flight was being run by Iberia, not British Airways. Iberia has a policy which did not allow me to check in without proof of a return flight. Unfortunately, my travel partner had booked the return flight and did not share the details with me. I was not able to reach my travel partner and, as such, was forced to buy a new ~$2,300 return ticket on the spot in order to provide the necessary proof. This was an extreme inconvenience, as I nearly missed my flight. If Iberia or British Airways made its travelers aware of this policy in advance of their check in. I have no intention of flying Iberia ever again."
Cons: "Everything felt and smelled dirty."
Cons: "The air in the airplane was very cold and no blankets were provided. The aircraft seemed very old. Small movie screens on the ceiling, too far away to watch movie."
Pros: "Crew was very kind"
Cons: "Screens for entertainment were a bit fuzzy, food was just ok, leg and arm space was tight"
Pros: "When I finally got on the flight."
Cons: "That we were delayed overnight. Wrong plane with wrong crew. No communication to the passengers."
Cons: "No entertainment system, tight seats"
Pros: "Customer service was acceptable"
Cons: "Flights were cancelled and had to take another airline. Bags were also lost for 5 days!"
Cons: "Was late. Almost missed me next flight."
Pros: "The crew was nice as was the meal"
Cons: "I upgraded my seats, but we still didn’t get any extras for the price."
Cons: "Panasonic Wi-Fi does not come close to the value GoGo provides."
Pros: "Plane had a modern feel with exception of entertainment."
Cons: "No entertainment on the back of the screen. This is 2018, who doesn’t have that??? Sit length was a little small. I’m 5’10 and barely fit."
Pros: "Liked the entertainment and drinks service"
Cons: "Very tight for space."
Pros: "Plane is clean. Well kept"
Cons: "Wifi. It terrible"
Pros: "They got another flight for us"
Cons: "4 hour delayed"
Pros: "The crew was pleasant and it was nice to have a complimentary meal and wine. We landed very early."
Cons: "This plane has not been updated since before I was born. The seats were extremely uncomfortable and there was no in seat entertainment, just overhead screens. I was never able to get the WiFi to work. There were no power outlets, and we were never offered headphones, eye masks or ear plugs. I expected more from American since our 2hr flight from Orlando to JFK had working WiFi, power outlets and in-seat video monitors."
Cons: "Flight attendants are rude and nasty!"
Pros: "staff was very nice. boarding was on time and efficient"
Cons: "no screens to watch movies. the plane was delayed for a repair and we had to sit on the plane for two hours before we took off. they should of let us off the plane during this time. because of this the flight felt longer. there was no choice of movie because there was only the screen in the isle. the food was horrible for dinner. the smell made me feel sick and the taste was worse. a sandwich might of been better than that disgusting hot food."
Cons: "We flew from Rome to JFK and arrived at 12:40 pm only to find out that our 3:30 pm flight had been cancelled a long time ago. No one had notified us of our new booking on a 9:10 flight to Boston. No one at American or British Airways could provide us with an earlier departure or compensate us to take alternative transportation. Our 9:10 flight was then delayed until 10:50 pm. We arrived in Boston at 12:02 am, 11 1/2 hours after our arrival at JFK from Rome. This was not a very friendly welcome home. We never would have booked such an extended delay as we only live 4 hours from New York City."
Pros: "It was fine. Just not anything great."
Cons: "Many groups were not seated together. at the airport I asked if my husband and I could be put together . One worker seemed interested in helping, but another rudely butted in and said there "were no seats together, the flight was full." Come to find out the flight was not full, there were whole rows not full. The groups near our seats rearranged ourselves so we could be by our family members, so it worked out. No thanks to the person at the terminal. Really long walk from the gate to the plane. No food on a cross country flight. Only a few cups of water/soda and a cookie. which unfortunately is typical now days. The lights were off the whole trip. The captain kept turning on the seat belt sign for the turbulence. Which there was a lot of. But then he would announce for everyone to go back to their seats. It wasn't huge bumps, just a little rough. and it woke everyone up by announcing it multiple times."
Cons: "Very old plane. No personal entertainment. Very basic service."
Pros: "The comfort seats"
Cons: "Flight was oversold and that caused a delay of over 1 1/2hr."
Pros: "On time good service"
Pros: "much room. great entertainment. great crew"
Pros: "Probably the fact that I flew with my friend and both agreed on how bad this airline is."
Cons: "This is my first time with the airline. It’s safe to say I’ll wont be booking with American Airlines again in the future. The crew members were rude, unattentive and just bitter. It started with simply boarding. The lady at the desk was rude about telling me I needed to consolidate my bags. I ended up just checking the carry-on in. We asked one crew member on board if we could throw our trash away and she just seems annoyed. We also asked for ear buds and she never arrived with them simply stating they will offer/hand them out after they come around. She just seemed like she hates her job. Just terrible attitudes. very unpleasant flight."
Pros: "This was a horrendous experience."
Cons: "I've had flights canceled before, but clearly American Airlines/ JFK is not equipped to manage. American Airlines online hung up on me after 24 minutes of being on hold. I waited in line for 2 hours to get on another flight home and the attendant first suggested to fly me to Charlotte then Cleveland where I would arrive a day late after I'd been traveling with my elderly parents for 24 hours. Additionally, once we changed flights and had to go to Newark, it took an hour to print (yes, print) our new itineraries for United and then when the cab should have arrived immediately, we waited 45 minutes. I was displeased."
Pros: "It got me there safely without delays."
Cons: "Food isn't good. the connections can be offered in a much better and time efficient way but they were not. I had to change airports in NYC with a 7-hr layover while they could've flown me to JFK (there was available flights). Same thing with coming back, a long layover in Texas."
Pros: "Flight was supposed to leave 5:45 PM , they let us board the plane right on time, then we stayed waiting on board for half an hour, there was zero communication from staff or the captain, then suddenly they asked us to leave for no reason whatsoever, we waited and waited, they decided to move us to Gate 1 instead and had us wait for four hours, they served us little food, and told us wait for AA to provide a new plane. we were delayed for four hours, flight left 10PM. very very dissatisfied, never ride with AA or Iberia"
Cons: "I need a refund for this flight. it was a horror, 4 hours of delay with zero communication."
Pros: "I'm gluten free & I don't eat pork so I would like a gluten free no pork option!"
Cons: "Small seats. No entertainment old plane"
Pros: "Movies. Safety of flight"
Cons: "Food Too crowed seats no room to breath"
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent!"
Cons: "Seating extremely tight"
Pros: "Overall easy navigation."
Cons: "More signs for terminal to terminal navigation."
Pros: "The boarding was quick"
Cons: "I am surprised that an 8 hr international flight, had no WIfi.. I had to continually ask and check the time with Crew members. This needs to change when the average seat is $800-900 and the flight holds 35 seats. AA is raking in WAY to much money to be this cheap. No WiFi and having to look up to the middle isle to watch a child's movie on repeat " Guardians of the Galaxy." My neck and back were in extreme discomfort from the 8 hr flight back to NYC. If AA had headrest monitors and WiFi this could be avoided. Its 2017 stop being cheap!"
Cons: "After arriving at the airport more than 2 hours early and at the gate 30 min prior to departure, American Airlines never called last boarding call, not our names. We sat at the gate, not knowing they had boarded, and tje plane departed unbeknownst to us. Had to stand in the rebooking line for 1.5 hours before speaking to a rep who told us we couldn't rebook our international flight. Had to request a supervisor, who thankfully after an additional hour was able ro rebook us."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Pros: "The TVs/back of the chairs were great because they could shut off completely so there was no screen glare when you want to sleep, the headphone jack worked with good sound quality, and there was a decent movie selection. Staff was courteous and the food was fine."
Cons: "This flight itself was great overall. No complaints. The only thing I didn't like was that I'd wanted to book a return direct flight on American Airlines as well, but the price skyrocketed from a few hundred to over $2200, which is just outrageous, so I booked TAP Portugal instead. My friend paid under $600 round trip and it boggles the mind that the same flights shot up to over $2k... It's not realistic to expect customers to stay loyal to an airline that prices them out."
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."
Cons: "we order kosher food for the flights, on the first flight we recive only for 1 pessanger so on the way back we call few days before to the airlines company to confirm that is kosher food for both passengers and they confirm and again we didnt recive only 1 passanger recive for flight over 20 hours way to be with out food"
Pros: "The airline was great."
Cons: "It airfare.......I've never in my life had to deal with such an unprofessional company in my entire life! I'm honestly shocked that you use them considering your a creditable company. I was screamed and cursed at hung up on and also cancelled off my flight the morning of and then had to pay an additional $100 to get back onto the flight! When I checked online they have nothing but bad reviews. Unfortunately I will not be booking through kayak again in fear of having to deal with airfare."
Pros: "Movies, wine"
Cons: "When checking in the staff was so incredibly rude, nonexistent during the whole check in process that it led to several people missing their flights or almost missing it. I had to run around asking for someone to help the long line of people including me who were all in danger of missing their flight because no one was around to help. And then when I finally do get checked in using the now kiosk only option for the plebeian class while anyone above economy gets to talk to real people (way to highlight the class divide guys) I missed my check in time by 5 minutes and was told by the kiosk to find an agent. Then I go running around looking for an agent. I find one and she says you missed your flight. I told her I still have 45 minutes to make it, and she rudely just tells me to get in another line to pay for a new ticket. LUCKILY someone in the priority line saw I was having a problem, a customer not an agent, and she told me to try to talk to someone on her side. After 3 agents told me no one finally told me yes. I made my flight but just by a hair. If the agents would have been around to help or been willing to help me from the moment I spoke to them this would not have been a problem. Thanks for almost ruining Christmas for me. When I spoke to others everyone told me they always have issues with AA. Will never fly AA again."
Pros: "I have been flying American Airlines for years and never had a big issue. The crew was better some times than others but I usually travel at night and try to get some sleep. Obviously, I like the newer planes and hope that the fleet will eventually be replaced entirely."
Pros: "why you have send email for survey I cancelled my trip do to emergency/ for sorry really sorry,"
Pros: "That we amazingly finally made it to Rome."
Cons: "Almost everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. Literally, every plane we were supposed to fly on had something wrong with it. We were delayed for hours, missed a connecting flight, had to take another flight which was delayed even longer, they had to find another plane entirely because something was wrong with THAT one. Once we finally got on the plane, we sat on the runway for an hour because there was some kind of TSA-related issue (awesome) and then the airport wouldn't let any planes take off inexplicably. We got to our destination 12 hours later than we were supposed to. But to make up for it, American gave us $10 food vouchers to use in the airport in the middle of the night..."
Pros: "Plane was clean boarding was fine."
Cons: "I paid $150 extra for 2 exit row seats thinking we could use the extra room on the long flight. Unfortunately, the exit row space was cut off by and smaller than a normal row! Our legs were extremely cramped by the time we got to Rome. We had no overhead storage, which was already small, so we had to put our carry-ons multiple rows behind us -- which made exiting the plane a pain. There wasn't any personal entertainment systems, just one tv per section. The food was sub par. The crew was nice enough, but I'll NEVER take American Airlines internationally again."
Pros: "Captain and crew were friendly and professional."
Pros: "Direct flight, convenient schedule"
Cons: "Ground delay at JFK, no personal entertainment system"
Pros: "Crew, entertainment, on time"
Pros: "We arrived back home in LA fine. It was the JFK first part of the trip that was not so good. Below"
Cons: "Just missed cutoff for baggage check by minutes. Told it had to go on next flight but one of us would have to fly with it. We both had paid for biz class. The agent gave me another biz class seat on the next flight 2 hours later. When I waited to board the gate attendant called my name. He chatted with another associate who irritably said "I hate when they do that, I'll go talk to the captain". She came back to the other one and he tore up my ticket and issued me a seat in the last row. When I boarded I mentioned that somehow I went from biz class to that and she retorted in a mocking tone "gee, don't know how that happened". Another passenger mentioned to me that they had given my seat to a gentleman in a blazer that somehow finangled it. Crappy bitchy customer service at the gate."
Pros: "It was five star all the way."
Pros: "The crew was okay,...and we got there"
Cons: "The plane, was a piece of junk, and the AC wasn't working."
Pros: "The crew was professional and courteous. USB charger"
Cons: "2 hr delay. Auxiliary battery crashed. Mediocre food. Poor wine. Limited entertainment"
Pros: "Tenía reservado uno y de repente desaprecio"
Cons: "Seats switched from together with my wife on our honeymoon to seperate.Rrude front desk staff."
Cons: "When I purchased the ticket I was never told that there was no allowance for luggage. Usually, this flights give you @ least (1) piece of luggage for free. In this case they charged the first piece 50 dollars and the second one $200.00.- After I paid 1500 dollars for (1) plane ticket , it is unheard that there is not even one piece of luggage for free. When I booked the flight there was nothing on the site about this. This was my first and last time buying a tickets from you guys. The fact that the fare was 200 dollars cheaper than other sites, ended up costing, 300 more. Never again with you guys."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for hours. Very little explanations. We were herded onto flight and staff at gate were beyond rude and aggressive."
Pros: "Saving grace: movie selection much better than expected. Food a bit better than expected (in the world of airline food). Crew capable & nice enough. We got to our destination on time, so at least there’s that."
Cons: "Boarding @ JFK was a joke. That part of airport is currently under construction, so massive # of ppl & not enough room for everyone. Once on plane, all reasonably good until we reached altitude & settled in for the evening. At that point, for some reason the heat came on between rows 39 & 46 (we were in row 45) & was on all. night. long. on an overnight flight. Crew was baffled & didn’t know how to fix. I was melting & miserable — impossible to sleep. Cramped, basic economy seats. Awful experience."
Cons: "JFK-Madrid flight got delayed by 3 hours which would cause me to miss my connection for Madrid-Split (~2 hour layover), I asked the Iberia representatives at JFK about changing the flight and they reassured me that “the connecting flight would hold for us” and “no need to change our flight”. To our surprise the connecting flight already left when we arrived to Madrid. It’s clear that this was a case of “not our problem” from the JFK Iberia ticket agent. Rather than helping us find a viable alternative for our flight (namely a flight that doesn’t arrive more than a full day later) before leaving for Madrid they shipped us to Madrid where there were poor/no options for getting to Split at the original planned time. I’m very upset that I’m going arrive more than a day late to my destination and that I was blatantly lied to by the Iberia agent at JFK, never ever going to book a flight with Iberia again."
Cons: "Our seats was almost the last seat of all our flights, even we checked in very early."
Cons: "I paid for wifi and I could not use it. There was a problem with the connexion. So, I paid for nothing"
Cons: "Even though I bought my ticket through British airways, they made me check in through Iberia. No one told me beforehand so I waited in line at the BA line for about 20 mins and was told by the ticket agent to go to Iberia instead. Also, two medium delays. Not major but I did feel like I spent more time on the plane than I should have"
Pros: "On time, Very professional crew."
Cons: "Could not do online check-in."
Pros: "Seat comfort entertainment and food"
Pros: "The entertainment was probably the best part of the flight."
Cons: "The staff were less than friendly, the food was terrible . Not to mention it was like pulling teeth to get a beverage from time to time. Wouldn’t do it again...... there too many service oriented airlines available to make this mistake again."
Pros: "This was a good flight with good service and a nice crew. It was especially nice to have actual silverware to use for the meal."
Cons: "Changing terminals in New Yory was challenging because the route was not clearly marked. They did not honor the on-line boarding passes, so I had to go to the counter to reprint the boarding passes and then go through security again. I also would have preferred a clean blanket once I got on board. The flight attendants seemed hesitant to speak to me in Spanish, which I speak pretty well and they also seemd uncomfortable talking to me in English, which is my native tongue. This made it hard to interact with them in my normal good natured way."
Pros: "It wAs on time"
Pros: "I liked the service and, the in flight entertainment system. It was good food."
Cons: "There was very little legroom in economy class. I was thinking for an overseas flight the would be more than 31 inches pitch of legroom, Mabye the can work on that on such a big plane."
Cons: "I left a day later. No effort made to change flight."
Pros: "Great flight overall. Good food, pleasant crew. Easy boarding process"
Cons: "they had fancy touch screen TVs that at the beginning of the trip showed all the movie options... They then never activated during the entire transatlantic flight after takeoff."
Pros: "Landing was perfect"
Cons: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "The crew was not the worst crew."
Cons: "Apart from the small, uncomfortable seats, the food was very gross, inedible if you're not starving, and I've been fortunate to travel a lot and I've never ever been on a flight that announces towards the end of travel to reread emergency cards, and that if evacuation is needed, to not grab your stuff (wtf?!). incredibly not comforting considering the plane was super shakey during the flight."
Cons: "The only bad thing is that the checking at JFK was very long!!!!"
Cons: "We were in JFK for over 24 hours being lied to and being promised that our flight to Madrid although late would leave that day. We were changed from boarding door to boarding door, we were told that there were no hotel rooms available in New York that they could place us in and told that they were testing a plane and as soon as it was confirmed it could fly we would be on it. At approx. 1am or a little after we (the passengers) from the flight were located at boarding door 7 and they brought an Iberia plane right by the windows in hopes that we would be put at ease at the sight of a possible flight only to find out that there are no flights out of JFK after 1am. The lies they told and or lack of truths was very frustrating"
Cons: "Terrible Uncomfortable Overbooked"
Pros: "Good seat spacing"
Cons: "Customer service was a low priority"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, excellent movie selection, ample leg room, clean and new plane, staff was attentive."
Cons: "Food was average, foot rests were hard to operate, alcohol selection was scant, only beer and wine are complimentary, you must pay for spirits in premium economy"
Cons: "Gate agents never seem to recognize how difficult it is to hear announcements when there are anout 100 people milling around the gate and chatting. Boarding announcements need to be loud, clear, and spoken slowly. Repetirion wouldn't hurt."
Pros: "Food was good. Nice blanket and pillow."
Cons: "The flight attendants were rude. I read online that they were but tought it can't be that bad. In real life, I was amazed by their general disregard and apathy associated with their job and us flyers. It was worse than the reviews. I really felt like they hated Americans. One flight attendant rolled her eyes when asked for something, another snacked her lips. They really don't seem like they like their jobs or their customers. If that's the case, move on."
Pros: "the food and the entertaiment"
Cons: "long trip"
Pros: "So refreshing an experience after AA: Iberia's Airbus was clean, their staff efficient, and professional, and electronic updates were provided at every connection! WOW!"
Pros: "The flight attendants were so kind, the food was delicious, and the entertainment options were great!"
Pros: "The entertainment was readily available."
Pros: "Plane and crew"
Cons: "Good flight"
Pros: "Courtesy of flight crew"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "There was bad weather which understandably caused delays, however the communication during this eventual 16 hour delay was horrendous. We were told for the first two hours that we would be delayed each hour and then they would make a decision to delay another hour. This went on for 4 hours (the last two hours of which we did not receive any updates). The flight was originally scheduled to leave at 8:10. At 12:30am we were told our plane was at the gate and being prepared for us to board and the agent giving announcements said we were "guaranteed to leave TONIGHT". At 1am we were told that unfortunately the plane got to the gate just a bit too late and not the crew are not legally allowed to fly and the flight would be pushed back until 8am. At the time, I thought 7 hours was strange and I'd assume the crew would need more like 8-10 hours to rest. Unfortunately because we were told so late, all hotels were booked up. I live in NYC and would've gone home for the night however because we needed to be back by 6am (what the agent suggested), there seemed no point in leaving. We were not provided with any pillows or blankets until 4 in the morning. At 6am the next morning, we were told the crew needed "more rest time" and that our new departure time would be 9:30. How is it that the crew now needs more time? Shouldn't that have been figured out at 1am? Before we board, one of the agents thinks they will "lighten the mood" with the following comment - "Who would've thought a little bad weather would've caused this?" Absolutely not a time for jokes and people were very angry. We finally board for what we think is finally a 9:30am take off. No - now two new issues - 1, the co pilot is late (LATE? how can you be late when a flight has been delayed 16 hours) and 2, they needed to remove package from the plane for people who were no longer taking this flight. In the end, we took off around 11:30am which messed up a lot of peoples connecting flights, pick ups at the airport, etc. I will never fly this airline again."
Pros: "Excellent flight. Iberia had outstanding service"
Pros: "Guests were boarded quickly. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was tasteless and bland. Crew was not very attentive."
Cons: "We took the red eye and there were children that would not stop screaming and crying. This was not your usual crying infant. These children were able to speak. The crew did nothing about it and let these children yell and scream as they played games on the provided tv. Most of the people on the flight were displeased by this family that made so much noise."
Cons: "This is a horrible airlline. No inoformation or connecting here info in Madrid, no agents anywhere to be found. Online check-in malfunctions food was the worst food I ever saw. Airline causes huge amount of unecessary sress."
Pros: "Extremely disapointed of the way i had to find what airline was in charge of the flight. I almost missed it. I had to ask 3 different airlines, nobody could help me, i had to change terminal. Etc... Very stressful. Kayak explained very badly. I think about writing a review on your website and others"
Pros: "It was on time and good selection on movies"
Cons: "Iberia needs new aircrafts... They are always kinda old..."
Pros: "Flight from NYC to Madrid"
Cons: "Lost my luggage for 3 days and no compensation for out of pocket expenses Flight from Madrid to Florence"
Pros: "Movies and food were both very good."
Cons: "Boarding was laugh out loud stupid. Worse than cattle. No announcements. Looked like the entire process was run by high schoolers. They wouldn't let us board till the last because we hadn't booked a return on BA. Among the worst flights ever"
Cons: "Put in standby, even with reservation. Choppy fight."
Pros: "I arrived safely at my destination. The crew was sympathetic to the plane's deficiencies."
Cons: "The reading lights didn't work. The movie had no sound. The charging station was outdated. The food was terrible"
