The incoming flight was two hours late, so the departure was late. Our arrival in Paris was late. We made the flight, but our luggage didn't.

Cons: "I didnt like that my flight was canceled and rebooked for no reason. This created me big problem in Athens that they couldnt find my ticket in delta. Also I didnt like that i had to stand and wait for 3 hours in the line because my flight was canceled but no one could let us know if there gonna be any flights within the day. I slept in the airport because i couldnt find a hotel to spend the night close to the airport. They were all full and i had no time to find one since I was waiting there for 3 hours with no informational. I slept on the floor and delta didnt even offer us a blanket. That was my worst trip ever."

Cons: "difficult connecting to wifi."

Cons: "Poor seating and lost my bag."

Pros: "Quick and painless flight"

Pros: "Once we were in the air, the flight was average."
Cons: "The flight was delayed due to several mechanical issues but the ground crew did not communicate effectively on the issue or how long the delay would be. I understand that these issues occur, but better communications and empathy from the ground crew would have gone a long way. Boarding was also a disaster because everyone tried to board at the same time and again, the ground crew did nothing to control the situation."

Cons: "The crew was rude."

Cons: "Turbulence"

Pros: "Everything was great!"

Pros: "Short flight"
Cons: "Numerous delays."

Cons: "Seat in front of me was broken in the reclined position so I had no leg room."

Cons: "The check in process at JFK was a disaster. The kiosk check in machines were constantly malfunctioning, where to line up was unclear, and staff acted frustrated. After several failed attempts with the kiosks you have to wait in line to check in at the counter anyways. It would have saved almost an hour of my time to just go straight to the counter-- had I been allowed to. I wanted to check a bag which contained some fragile items. Several bottles of wine which I wrapped in bubble wrap and cushioned with my packed clothes. I requested a "Fragile" sticker to be put on my bag. I was told "We don't do that here". So I asked if they handle ALL bags with extreme care and I was laughed at and told to go on my way. When I got my bag at my destination-- the outside of my leather suitcase was sliced to the lining. There were scuff marks and torn leather. My wine had been completely shattered. Not just a crack in the bottle, but flattened completely. My clothes were stained, my bag ruined. I don't know if putting a fragile sticker on would have prevented this, but I don't understand why they just "don't do that". We are trusting our property to the airline when we check bags. I will never trust American Airlines ever again. They don't want to know if I have anything fragile, and they don't care when I tell them."

Pros: "Quick and easy thanks"

Cons: "Plane had no Per-seat entertainment system."

Pros: "Sittings on the tarmac for 90 minutes no airs no waters. 114 degrees"

Pros: "Well organised"

Pros: "Roomy aisle seat"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "No much"
Cons: "Aircraft is small, boarding is a mad dash to the plane"

Pros: "Boarding the plane from the back first saved longer queues. Unfortunately people cheat and the boarding officers don't send them back to the right queue. Toilets were clean. Staff excellent. I was glad all my flights were stuffed to the gunnels. Presumably that is best for the environment rather than lots of planes with fewer passengers in each."
Cons: "Passport control with new computer ID checks was fast. Baggage was slow coming. I booked through Netflights and they didn't book me a good seat. If I could have changed it myself they should have told me. On the way to Tampa on 3rd March I couldn't check in within 24 hours and had to wait half an hour while they changed our plane. BA used to do short science programmes which I loved. Shame these have finished."

Cons: "We missed our connection because of American Airlines incompetence. That being said the flight itself was ok."

Cons: "Could not read paper when passenger in front reclined seat. No space between rows."

Cons: "Took my bag for no reason, I flew there with it."

Cons: "Missed Connection."

Pros: "Great service!"

Pros: "I did like sitting on the left side of the plane. There's a little more room. I feel it's horrible how the airline charges so much and cram so many seats in one air craft. Making it a miserable flight."
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "no food"

Pros: "The attention from the staff during the flight,was excellent."
Cons: "I'd didn't like that we'd had to pay 50 dollars for a medium size luggage,when other passengers have,slightly smaller suitcase,a carry on a lap top or big purse."

Cons: "AA canceled my flight my kids who live 4 hours away from San Diego drove that distance to pick me up yesterday, we got a hotel room for the canceled flight but they ended up paying $200 for the night. AA did not let us know thr flight was canceled until late last night."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "We sat on the runway for more than an hour."

Pros: "My husband and I were traveling together to Dallas, and we were unable to sit together-The ticketing agent was very rude when we asked if she could find us seats that were together. She said, "We could ask someone on the flight to switch with us". We paid $738.00 total for both tickets to Dallas, and found it very hard to believe that we could not get seats that were next to each other. We have had this same situation on other airlines, and they were very accommodating to our needs."

Pros: "Fast shuttle to our hotel"
Cons: "Heat"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "HORRIBLE!!!!"

Pros: "Nice new interior"

Cons: "No bags to go to overhead bin"

Cons: "3hour weather delay!"

Cons: "My wife and I traveled with bicycles packed in standard boxes and got hit with a whopping $230 charge per bicycle out of the blue. We were expecting no charge because the bicycles were our only check-in baggage for the trip. Couldn't believe the lack of transparency with which we got hit with this charge. Qantas, Air New Zealand, and other airlines we've taken bikes with us on our flights have charged nothing when we traveled in the same fashion. So, if you are a bicyclist traveling with your bicycle, I'd avoid the United-Lufthansa duo."

Pros: "On time courteous staff excellent service"

Pros: "The crew was excellent, the free entertainment was awesome. The flight departed on time, and arrived 25 minutes early."

Pros: "The Washington terminals were close in distance for transfering and the gate had each group marked off with lanes, versus waiting for the agent to call your group number."

Pros: "Flight was on time, even a little early. Bags came out quickly at destination."
Cons: "Crowded seats. Too many people bringing huge bags on board even when crew kept asking them to check them. Customs was very long in DC. It would have been nice to been made aware of dowloading customs app before deplaning. It would have saved a huge amount of time."

Cons: "5 hour delay; sat on the plane for that duration with minimal handouts of water or snacks. Why didn’t we go back to the gate and de-plane? It was utterly miserable."

Pros: "Service was nice"
Cons: "It would be nice to get some regular free snacks on board, instead of having to pay for every tiny thing."

Pros: "I was able to leave Burlington before the storm."
Cons: "When you travel the friendly skies, it is a cattle call. Travel is just not fun via any of the airlines. My experience was decent and that is all that I can say."

Cons: "Old plane and was not clean."

Pros: "Flight attendant was extraordinarily kind, especially for the couple sitting next to me with their adorable 7-week old baby."

Pros: "Newer aircraft."
Cons: "Chaotic self-service check in at IAD, shifting airline responsibilities (like attaching baggage tags), to passengers; boarding extremely slow; new seats uncomfortable, with seriously reduced storage in seat-back; to watch movies you have to pay for DirectTV. A race to the bottom on service in all respects."

Pros: "Fast, friendly, on time"
Cons: "none"

Pros: "They were able to book another direct flight for me"
Cons: "I had to wait 6 hours before they informed us that the flight would be canceled. They kept delaying the flight instead of proactively booking passengers on other flights."

Pros: "The in-flight streaming of movies actually worked pretty well -- just be sure to install United app on tablet if you want to use that instead of phone."
Cons: "An extra 1 inch between seats would make the difference in allowing passengers to open a small laptop and position it so they can simultaneously type and see the screen at a viewable angle."

Pros: "Courteous staff"
Cons: "Incremental delays for mechanical problems. But it was the earliest I have ever been late"

Pros: "Nothing"
