Cons: "Cleanliness"

Pros: "It was a nice, quick hop. Everyone played by the new COVID rules."

Pros: "Crew was awesome! Service was quick!"
Cons: "One flight the plane was quite warm and the air overhead was blowing warm air.. didn’t cool down until we were preparing to land and then it blew warm air out again.."

Pros: "Super friendly staff, great service and delicious food. The competition has nothing compared to Delta. We’re switching"

Pros: "Seats too small"
Cons: "Crappie entertainment. Never figured out how to login on phone,"

Cons: "Flight into Seattle delayed, flight out of Seattle to Minneapolis delayed flights out of Minneapolis to Bismarck delayed. Ran from gate F to gate c24 arrived at 10:23 p.m. Slight to the park at 10:25 p.m. and they closed the door on me as I was running up there. Ran across the entire terminal to get there and they would not let me on. Last Flight of the night to Bismarck. Missed my uncle's 90th birthday party. Would not give me food voucher. Delta gate agent told me she would lose her job if she did not close the doors 8 minutes prior. However the Minneapolis flight waited for 15 minutes for people to board that plane. How does that compute? Why would they not wait 3 minutes for me rather than pay the money to put me up in a hotel?"

Pros: "Crew is always friendly"
Cons: "Aircraft broke, had to route me to an additional three stops just to get me home and through the night. Also, still unsure of where my checked baggage is."

Cons: "Better customer service."

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Flight attendants not friendly"

Cons: "My bag did not make the connection even though there was almost 4 hours layover... :("

Pros: "Pillow, comforter, amenity kit were all good."
Cons: "Food was acceptable, but nothing exciting or above average. Seat had some trouble reclining, but eventually worked. Entertainment unit screen had issues with acting like I was touching it when I wasn't throughout trip. Made for major annoyance watching. Delta flight 410 on Oct 1, 2017 seat 3A."

Cons: "Was not a wheelchair waiting for Wallace."

Pros: "Super smooth takeoff and landing. Great plane, more legroom than other airlines."

Cons: "requirement to wait for seat assignment until at the gate"

Pros: "On Time"

Cons: "No power to charge"

Pros: "Delta made sure my husband and I had seats together and my husband was thrilled to have a window seat. We took off and arrived earlier than scheduled so we didn't have to run to catch our connecting flight."
Cons: "Everything was perfect. Nothing negative to report."

Pros: "The crew was great, boarding and exit went smoothly."
Cons: "Seats are tight, not very roomy, I'm 6' tall and my knees were in the seat in front of me. The delta studio entertainment app didn't work, couldn't use the internet at all."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and the food was pretty good for airplane food."
Cons: "The boarding process was a nightmare, no announcements were made in English so half of the passengers were confused. The seats were sooo uncomfortable."

Cons: "Seat didn't recline, no changing station for my child onboard (but charged me a full price ticket)"

Pros: "The crew & my seat"
Cons: "The movie offerings & the snack offerings."

Pros: "They had aircraft flying to my destination. All other airlines were booked for the time and the destination I had in mind."
Cons: "Long Delays, Over Booked Flights, Customer Service is not helpful, Wrong info delivered by Customer Service, No boarding gate info, Luggage was damaged, and I was charged a large premium with no added value. Delta sold me a 1st class flight because of their delays and overbooking their flights. This was because they could not fulfill the ticket I had. This was Delta's solution to their problem caused by them. I still have no idea why the flights were delayed. On top of all this, I overheard a walk-on pilot ask if there was room for him to catch a lift home. The flight attendant responded with "absolutely this flight is not full at all, you can sit right here". Wait I had to pay 200 bucks extra for an overbooked flight and you are having your Delta representatives say different. This was my first and last trip with Delta. I spent 1000 dollars for round trip ticket from Seattle to Spokane WA. No way is that OK or acceptable under any circumstances to treat your customers like this. The best part about all of this is, I have sent feedback and called customer service to talk to a manager to hear the blame put on back on me. Perception is reality Delta. Awful service, awful prices, awful care, awful communication, and awful value for the money."

Cons: "even though I paid for premium economy, the seating was still cramped shoulder to shoulder"

Pros: "I was upgraded to First at the gate. The crew was very professional and friendly. Food mini-minimal, but OK."
Cons: "On this A320 craft, old style, the First class seats are a joke. I had seat 2B. The pitch is apparently less than in the Comfort+ rows. The passengers in 1A and 1B started reclining even before departure, and during the whole flight. For me and my neighbor, with that seat on our chest, it was impossible to reach down to the seat-back pocket, not to mention to the bag stowed under the seat in front. To get out of the seat, I almost could not get my legs through the 5-in. interval between the back of the front seat and the irremovable armrest. I shook the passenger sleeping in 1B rather violently a couple times. The lady in seat 2B apologized, but she had to climb and put her feet on my seat to get out of hers, there was really no other way. Delta needs to address this ridiculous situation of their First Class seats urgently."

Pros: "The crew made up for some of the lost time"
Cons: "Delta downsized the plane overbooked by 35, reassigned our seating that we made three months ago so we no longer could sit next to each other. My wife had to sit in one row I had to sit in another Delta did all this without contacting us. This was done to many of the passengers. The seats are getting as ridiculously narrow, I thought I was on Spirit Airlines! Now Delta is charging for bags! One reason I had stayed with Delta was although the ticket prices were higher the bags were free, now higher ticket prices and bag fees! Guess I will have to search for another air carrier. Delta is not loyal to me so I won't be loyal to Delta! Fuel is cheaper so they raise fees!"

Cons: "Crew forget to feed quarter of passenger, and did it after reminder from passenger. No movies with Russian translation or titles. Flight arrived at Amsterdam 50 min later, and we missed our direct flight to Kiev"

Cons: "We didn't try the entertainment."

Cons: "Flight was cancelled"

Cons: "Everything was super. Really"

Cons: "A delay due to an electrical storm prevented us from taking off for over an hour which we had to wait to end on the plane."

Cons: "Poorly equipped aircraft. No charging stations. No video of any kind. Pitiful food offerings. It's a four hour flight. Gotta do better."

Cons: "Connection time unacceptable with delay in departure from London"

Pros: "Middle seats had little useful legroom due to conduit"
Cons: "The plane was hot, muggy, and had little airflow with no user movable nozzles. Lots of people sweating for 6+hours."

Pros: "Great crew and all were pleasant and attentive. Best airline I have flown."

Pros: "The crew was very friendly, the food was surprisingly delicious and despite weather conditions being rough and causing significant turbulence the pilot handled it well and landed so smoothly I could honestly barely tell we had landed!"
Cons: "The seats were pretty comfortable for economy seats but still could have been a bit more comfortable. The standard leg room could be increased as well as overhead storage"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "We were traveling from IAH gto FRA with two dogs. One in a crate and one in a small carry on dog bag. Lufthansa handled the process very well. They expected us at the airport, helped us through the entire checkin with a smile, helpful information and care. They brought us and our dog to TSA and after boarding confirmed that our dog had been loaded and safely taken care of. The cabin crew also checked on us and our in cabin dog. I don't know any other airline that makes traveling with a dog so easy and pleasant."

Cons: "With a short layover and a bit of a delay coming from Seattle, I rushed through immigration and security and ran to my next gate. Even though I arrived at the gate two minutes before the scheduled departure time, the plane had already left the gate. VERY disappointing and will probably be the last time I fly Lufthansa, especially through Frankfurt."

Pros: "Food was good but not enough."
Cons: "Entertainment system was not working."

Pros: "The crew was amazing and so welcoming! They did not flinch when they saw my three-year-old son and went out their way to make sure we had everything we needed. It was very nice to be greeted with such hospitality!"

Pros: "Crew and food were nice."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 60 minutes"

Cons: "i ordered 1 kosher meal and the flight attendant said they gave out all special meals and ours was not on the list"

Pros: "The crew's efficiency and friendliness"
Cons: "Having to fly to Germany to come to San Diego"

Cons: "Tras pasar por la máquina con la tarjeta de embarque una azafata de tierra dijo que no podía pasar alegando que mi maleta de mano espesaba demasiado sin fijarse que ya había sido pesado con etiqueta de ‘cabin baggage por la aerolínea. Luego al preguntar si estaba asegurado dijo que sí pero no sabía por cuanto. Los compartimentos encima de mi asiento no estaban llenos. El avión aterrizó tarde. Las azafatas de vuelo profesionales."

Pros: "The crew, both in SFO and on board where e excellent. We were well taken care of, in both area's. The service on the plane were top notch, anticipating our every need. The food was yummy and the entertainment great!"

Cons: "Lost my luggage . I am in Madrid with no luggage."

Pros: "There was no communication between aircrew and gate for transfers. There is a new additional check between gates and no passenger was informed. This security check was over an hour long."

Pros: "Very friendly crew"

Cons: "The air on the plane was unable to be controlled."

Pros: "On time, Staff were excellent"
Cons: "Poor snack (sugary cookie) Big rush to make connection in Frankfurt, almost missed it. Should allow at least 2 hours to connect as they use buses to transfer from plane to terminal and often have to go through security again."

Pros: "The flight attendants were so friendly and helpful. The food was good...didn't even have to pay for food or wine. On-board entertainment was excellent. I would fly Lufthansa any time!"
Cons: "Nothing."

Cons: "There was not entertainment at all"

Pros: "Service was good"
Cons: "None"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Service"

Pros: "See comments above."

Pros: "nice and polite crew"
Cons: "no screens/maps with route information no enterteinment unless downloaded on your own devise, I had an Iphone which is too small to watch anything.... seat hardly reclined at all and felt extreemely uncomfortable"

Pros: "Good food and entertainment options. Efficient boarding and security checks. Some very pleasant and helpful crew members but some not (see negative comments)"
Cons: "Seating for tall passengers very cramped. Crew didn't make slightest attempt to help. Other airlines have noticed and helped regarding this. *Some* crew members were abrupt and perfunctory when they could have been pleasant. Nothing special was being demanded of them. Automated check in luggage machines are frustrating to use for many. many passengers."

Pros: "The airplane was clean. Lots of storage space."
Cons: "The entertainment screens in our row of seats were not working. The crew did find seats we could move to if we wanted to watch movies. Made two phone calls to the airline prior to my scheduled trip to attempt a seat upgrade but they told me I would have to do this at the airport where of course no upgrades were available"

Pros: "As always, Lufthansa provides a great flight experience. Attentive crew, clean seats, and good leg room. Will fly Lufthansa again and again."
Cons: "Food wasn't as good as last year. Not bad, just not as good."

Pros: "Ample leg room and comfortable seats."
Cons: "No complaints"

Pros: "Once I got on the plane, everything was fine and easy. The airport drove me crazy and the lack of confirmation on my ticket was more than annoying."
Cons: "The late notification of a change in gate number and the lack of confirmation that I had a reserved seat on the flight. I was kept in suspense right up to the minute I boarded the aircraft. Very nerve wracking."

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "That I can't fly them all the time."

Cons: "Ridiing buses on tarmac to get to the plane."

Pros: "The flight attendant was very professional. The flight itself seemed quick and easy, and I believe we landed early despite being delayed for takeoff."
Cons: "I wish the head rests had the "wings" that help keep your head from rolling back and forth. Also I wish we had an option for our snack."

Pros: "I was seated in the emergency exit row, so it was nice to stretch my legs. The flight attendants were nice."
Cons: "The only bad part was some chaos at the baggage check. Things moved very slowly. After that, I was crying after saying farewell to a good friend, and the man working the security checkpoint said something in German I couldn't understand then mimicked crying in a crass way. I felt like he was making fun of me but couldn't be sure because I don't speak German. Terrible start to the flying experience, however the flight itself was smooth and pleasant."

Pros: "New crew on first flight but they we're even"
Cons: "Not much. Left sitting on a plane for over an hour & 1/2. Then taken into a door where I illegally entered the country. My passports seized. No other flight available to Dallas. Sent to Newark, NJ & missed the next flight to Dallas because Lufthansa lost my scooter. Someone pulled it by a wire and it doesn't run correctly. VERY BAD EXPERIENCE!!!"

Pros: "nice services."
Cons: "no order in boarding and no chairs in Panama airport. Had to stand for 2 hours before boarding."

Cons: "crowded,"

Pros: "Efficient, pleasant inflight service! Nice snack/meal. On time!"

Pros: "Very nice airplane and pleasant crew"

Pros: "Overall a nice and good flight"
Cons: "Just a detail, my “head holder” (not too sure how it is called) would not hold in position. Also, staff was a bit slow to come after being called, I had to go and ask for water by myself at some point since no one was coming after 15minites of waiting..."

Pros: "The crew from Kili to DarEsSalam was tired. A fresh crew worked from DarEsSalam to AMS and they were great."
Cons: "The boarding process was chaotic. The passengers in the first boarding group had to fight through the crowd because there were no boarding lanes."

Pros: "Great atmosphere, crew was excellent!"
Cons: "I’m 6’5”, so legroom can always be a complaint, but this wasn’t too bad. The plane appeared to be fairly old and didn’t have WiFi. Entertainment also was on an older screen which was navigated by using an old in-seat phone."

Pros: "I was sorted on Row 3 and the drapes kept hitting the back of my head."
Cons: "Move the drapes a few more inches back."

Pros: "Good amount of space on the plane, lots of movies to watch, good food and drink."

Cons: "I congratulate the KLM crew!"

Pros: "Great crew, comfortable seating with enough leg room."
Cons: "Provide dinner before getting to joburg, instead of a snack. Flight arrives late so dinner would be appreciated"

Pros: "Nice staff and no delay"
Cons: "Instead of crisps maybe a bit of cheese or crackers"

Pros: "Seat comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed and overhead bin space was very small"

Cons: "The air conditioners fan was bad and they had to fix it in London which took over 40 minutes off travel time...we arrived much later than expected in Lagos"

Pros: "The space at my feet with the chair in front was a bit akward."
Cons: "Not being seated next to small kids. Perhaps they should have a separate section? ;-)"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "They check for everything in the counter as if it was a low cost airline. If you go a kilo more over your baggage allowance you have to pay 100 eur. And for your cabin luggage you only have 12 kg that they check you twice and they have security staff at the airport specifically check in this."

Pros: "Crew was pleasant but not attentive to detail. Bypassed is completely for snack and drink towards end of 9 hour flight!"
Cons: "Pay attention to passengers."

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "Quick flight"

Pros: "The crew!!"

Pros: "Crew's hospitality, good music, good destination material, terminal info, good system overall"
Cons: "Less legroom, storage space, bad food, few movie options."

Cons: "I booked tickets via Delta, operated by KLM. They lost both of my check in bags in September, and it happened again today for the same scheduled flights. Had 4 hours of layover and KLM still wasn’t able to manage it."

Pros: "Economy comfort was very nice, food decent, plenty of toilets to avoid overcrowding, and good entertainment selection."

Cons: "Too much light in the cabin because of too many screens on. Should have a separate part of the cabin with screens off allowing one to sleep more easily."

Pros: "Very personable staff. Food acceptable for airline fare. Ticket price was outstanding."
Cons: "Paid for extra legroom, but very narrow seats not comfortable. Very difficult to sleep. Old plane--could not hear movies and unclear screen. Music sounded OK and choice was good."

Cons: "I ordered Wheel chair for my parents but one of them didn't get it at all. When my parents were checking in for flight they asked the representative about meal selection and she didn't answer their questions properly and because of that my mom didn't get proper Hindu Vegetarian food on flight instead she got Egg omelet which she couldn't eat. She has to eat just fruits. My mother is a diabetic patient and she needs a food every after some time. I never had such a bad experience before with any other airlines."

Pros: "Boarding agent extra effort to improve my seating!"
Cons: "Food amount less than expected."

Pros: "Gaps between seats are very narrow."
Cons: "when serving drinks, cabin crew limited to serve liquor only once and it was poor service."

Pros: "Friendly crew! More legroom, good entertainment and food was great! Smooth landings pretty much on time."
Cons: "Boarding could be better"

Cons: "Poor food, flight attend and finally baggage missing. Overall experience is extremely bad."

Pros: "Nice crew pilot food and beverage"
Cons: "No wifi"

Pros: "Crew where awesone and the choice of entertainment was fantastic"
Cons: "Seats way to close together"

Pros: "Efficient crew"
Cons: "Long, slow line at check in. Not many new movies or tv shows"

Pros: "The cabin crew was so kind, efficient, and attentive. All meals and snacks were delicious."

Pros: "Need better quality tvs for such a long flight and better movies There were only 4 Bollywood movies and not the latest ones either"

Cons: "Customer service"

Pros: "Great"
Cons: "Great"

Cons: "The cabin crew was racist. She told me to move back from an empty seat just because she wanted one of the guys ( from her country ) to set on it! Very rude and racist."

Pros: "Very friendly crew going out of way to assist in making trip comfortable"
Cons: "Had travelled KLM to Amsterdam on my first flight 27 years ago and the aircrafts are stuck in that age! Lousy seats, poor quality bathrooms, lousy screens, prefer not to fly them"

Cons: "Actually the Welcome on board announcement. The part where they special welcome loyalty program members. I do not get that... I am an explorer holder my self, but really?? so other paying customers are not as welcome. This is leftovers from the older days.."

Pros: "Good Experience"
Cons: "Nothing much"

Cons: "Delayed!"

Pros: "Very friendly service!"

Pros: "Cabin Crew was awesome."
Cons: "Entertainment System was not working and no Non-veg food option in flight."

Pros: "Equally friendly crew and experience. It was complimented by the time we got to spend in the fantastic KLM lounge while we waited for the flight."
Cons: "Nothing!"

Pros: "It was so easy to board and I had no inconvenience. It took 4 minutes from when I said goodbye to my family till when I was at the front of the gate."
Cons: "Nothing! It was all great!"

Pros: "Everything - Checkin, crew, food, entertainment"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Terrible service in flight and customer service wise .. app functionality was below"

Cons: "KLM had bumped us to a later flight for no reason and again we had to call with a long wait to get our original connection restored, However, we did not get boarding passes during checking in Europe and thus had to go outside security in Detroit to the main check-in gate and wait 30 minutes to get the error resolved. Then it was back thorough security and a rush to the gate to get there in time to board. Lost our original seat assignment and wound up in the last row at the tail of the plane. Extremely poor coordination between KLM and Delta who operated the flight."

Pros: "Very good flight, excellent service and good food."

Pros: "Excellent service"
Cons: "Having to pay extra to pick a seat prior to check-in. I didn't, and got a decent seat anyway."

Pros: "It was very comfortable"
Cons: "The crew was great"

Pros: "Flight was quick, professional, friendly."

Pros: "Everything was easy and the crew were really nice."
Cons: "Both transatlantic flights I had requested lactose-free meal options, neither of which happened."

Pros: "I liked Air Lingis. The crew and entertainment set up."
Cons: "I had to RUN to get to this gate. And the number changed. I was the 2nd to last person on. International flights should have a small area to stretch and loosen up. Being large and stuffed into a small seat for so long is not good."

Pros: "The entertainment was good and that’s about it! The crew was extremely bossy! The aircraft should have been cleaned better. Terrible odors and dirty kitchens!"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "The price point."
Cons: "Service was terrible, staff was rude. For an international flight they provide you next to nothing. Only 1 meal and soda or water. They didn’t even have coffee or give napkins with the meal. The seats were smaller than usual and uncomfortable. In addition they lost our luggage."

Cons: "It would have been nice to have a free drink and snack on the short flight. We would have taken some with us on the plane if we would have known that we had to pay for everything. Just something we have never experienced on any international trip before"

Pros: "I liked the fact that Aer Lingus screwed up so badly that I got to fly United back to Chicago instead of Aer Lingus."
Cons: "They could have gotten us to and from our destination on time. Ten hours late coming in and 24 hours late getting out. They could not have lost our luggage for 5 days. The logistics people haven't a clue. I feel sorry for the customer service people who have to work for this organization."

Pros: "Generally a smooth experience."
Cons: "The seats are too close together. Charging for drinks is out of character for a good airline. Go back to free non-alcoholic drinks."

Cons: "They lost our luggage and we can't reach anyone who can help us find it. The customer service people are very unhelpful"

Pros: "Crew were very friendly and helpful."

Cons: "Aer lingus uses double prong headphones which dates the whole experience earphones are uncomfortable and volume is bad. You have to pay for booze in economy for international flight, seats aren’t that comfortable but the selection of movies and tv is good. I will probably look elsewhere next time"

Pros: "Never made it onto the plane due to flight departing early and my flight landed in Dublin late. So there was no experience for me on this flight"
Cons: "The flight to Madrid left with about 15 passengers waiting to leave the flight from Chicago. We landed before our flight to Madrid was to depart. But by time we walked out we all missed our flight and had to rebook. I’m sure the flight to Madrid could’ve waited for the 15 of us. But they didn’t."

Pros: "The crew was charming and very attentive to passengers."
Cons: "Could have announced that there was a cost for ginger ale etc. before passengers placed request. Frankly overall it was excellent service."

Cons: "my seat wouldn't stay up, kept sliding back seat27a."

Pros: "Lots of entertainment. Spacey seats and plenty of bathrooms."
Cons: "The food wasn't great and I wish they would have picked up the dinner trays way sooner"

Pros: "Premium economy seats in front of the bulkhead from Charlotte to Dublin were very comfortable and worth the extra price."

Pros: "Aer Lingus flight was great - comfortable seats, good entertainment options with movies an music and good food!"

Pros: "I loved that they had blankets and pillows available, and the seats overall were comfortable. I also loved the in seat screens so we could watch movies. The select was a little limited compared to other airlines, but they still had some brand new releases. They also fed us two meals and a snack, and the crew was super nice."
Cons: "The boarding process was a little confusing. It was done by row numbers but not very well announced, so I wasn’t actually sure when my row was supposed to board."

Pros: "Plane was half full."
Cons: "Food was terrible, and if you’re white and your significant other is black you may have to request things for her because she won’t get them even when she asks"

Cons: "Had to cancel. Impossible to workout fair flight change for outgoing flight only - caused cancellation and repurchase return leg for no reason but greed, as Aer Lingus did not impose this. After multiple long waiting periods on the phone to work this out no one ever picked up. We will never book through Kayak/JustFly again."

Pros: "The crew was very pleasant. The food was actually good! The flight was exactly on time! And they didn’t loose my luggage! It was perfect"

Pros: "The leg room was smaller some of the other airlines. The seat was so uncomfortable to sit on for the flight."
Cons: "Seat"

Pros: "Same as above: great staff and service"
Cons: "Horrible online service and the surprise of being on a different airline than my travel documents had stated."

Pros: "Surprising good food! Had a chicken mushroom ravioli and it was tasty. The wrap, not so much."

Pros: "Seats were larger with more leg room. Flight calm and without incident"
Cons: "No snack"

Pros: "I flew overnight from Toronto, Canada to Dublin and had a relatively pleasant experience. The food and drink trolleys came by quite quickly and frequently, and the food exceeded my expectations. The crew was friendly, for the most part. Boarding certainly could've been smoother... But overall, I'd fly Aer Lingus again for an overseas trip."

Cons: "They lost my suitcase. I’m on vacation without winter clothes and they don’t look for my suitcase. It has been a horrendous experience. Never again I will flight in Aer Lingus!!!!"

Cons: "I had to pay 3 euros for a cup of black tea? Seriously? The captain could have lowered the volume when speaking. It was too loud."

Pros: "Timely and efficient - no delays after the holiday"

Cons: "Boarding process in Dublin was long"

Cons: "No complimentary drinks of any kind."

Cons: "The aircraft was old. The flight attendants were disinterested. The seats were terribly uncomfortable."

Cons: "Out of your control but the shuttling around from gate to gate was inconvenient"

Pros: "The seats were incredibly comfy."
Cons: "They kept the cabin lights on throughout the entire flight, so it was impossible to sleep. My rating for entertainment and food is not really applicable because the flight was short and didn't have either."

Pros: "the service was very friendly and the food was very good. Checking in was easy and they were very helpful."
Cons: "the only complaint I have is that on the info page on the screens the maps doesnt work."

Pros: "They boarded us in a very timely, organized and quick manner. The food was delicious and the flight attendants were awesome."
Cons: "Sitting in the middle seats, the flight attendants missed us for water offers and our tv's seemed stopped having any sound. I believed they overheated. After a couple hours, they cooled down and went on again. It was a very cold flight. I was so thankful for the blanket and that I brought my own also."

Cons: "They airline left our luggage in Dublin and we still do mat have it. It's been over a day. 25 other people were impacted by this error. My daughters wedding is in two days. I have no clothes. My tray table was filthy. Had to ask the flight attendant for a wet napkin to clean the tray and my hands."

Pros: "flight was 1.5 hours late"
Cons: "Nowhere to lift my foot on entire flight"

Pros: "Orderly boarding. Great entertainment options."
Cons: "Online seat assignment was unavailable. Once onboard, it felt like flight staff were reluctant to give water and keep passengers hydrated on the Air Lingus flight from SFO to DUB. They even offered my 11 and 14-yr olds coffee and tea over water! We had to ask 3 times every time we needed water. Both Aer Lingus flights to DUB and to MAD were delayed."

Cons: "1 hour in the slowest line ever. No self serve kiosk. CDG security also frustratingly slow"

Cons: "Baggage lost for mere one-hour flight from Amsterdam to Dublin with extended delay before it was recovered."

Cons: "The flight from Ireland to Spain was fine. The flight from Chicago to Ireland, absolutely horrible. I will never use Kayak again. My wife and I showed up to O'Hare in Chicago to be told that the flight is cancelled. There was no notification, absolutely nothing. I was on hold for nearly 2 hours with Kayak. Once finally connected, the customer service agent, argued with us for nearly an hour saying the flight was not cancelled!!!! We googled it! We told him to look up on google, and he kept on saying we were wrong! After 3 hours go by, he tells "oops, it's cancelled". We wasted nearly 5 hours with Kayak to try and get different seats, and then Kayak gave my wife and I seats that are not sitting together. If Kayak, looked on google, and actually tried to help I would've had seats with my wife. So disappointing. Worst experience I've had with customer service and with a company. I'll never use Kayak again."

Pros: "On time and very comfortable."

Cons: "It took so long to get bags on the carousel it eliminated any extra time the pilot gave us in getting to the airport quickly."

Pros: "Good flight crew, equipment and stewardesses"

Pros: "Overall excellent"
Cons: "Aero lingua lounge opens 530pm which gives you 15 min usage for a 635am flight before boarding. Not worth the fee."

Pros: "General clean: Sears, bathrooms, airport."
Cons: "Was not offered a complimentary drink."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "very uncomfortable seat in exit row (I had to pay extra for a bad seat) mediocre food (I had to pay extra for a mediocre meal) flight crew was professional but not friendly excessive security in Dublin"

Pros: "Overall an excellent flight. Boarding was quick and easy, cabin service attentive, and everything was efficient."

Pros: "Flight back to NYC was packed. Seats were tight and smaller (width-wise) than Aer Lingus flights out of NYC. Couldn't lean back for fear of being in the lap of the person behind me! Meals and beverages were good. Was surprised by that. Airline personnel were really friendly and nice. We arrived at least 1 hour and 25 minutes ahead of schedule. A+ in my books for that! And fast boarding."
Cons: "Small seats. Could remove a row or two to give more leg room; especially on overseas flights. No USB jacks in economy to charge up devices. Only available in 1st class and business (not fair when more folks in economy section). Okay movie selection. Would have preferred my own screen at seat. Remote kept popping up in arm rest."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "I was unable to change the flight in any way shape or form (even though I requested that weeks in advance). The only alternative was paying $+1000 more to change. While I still had tons of questions of my options (and was calm and polite!), they hung up on me. I ended up not even going on my flight and note being able to cancel my flight. Ridiculous, rude, and plain unpleasant. I will never take this airline again."

Pros: "Crew good. Seat cramped"

Pros: "awesome crew"
Cons: "better breakfast"

Pros: "Despite the fact that im a platinum member they offer no benefits during the flight. Seats are torture chairs . Im definitely moving my bussiness w another airline"

Pros: "The crew was ok. They did what you expect for a short flight."

Pros: "I made it alive"
Cons: "American airlines will leave you out to dry if there are any issues. Never had so many issues with the same airline."

Pros: "The fly it was on time"
Cons: "The food it was very bad"

Pros: "emergency landing upon returning to JFK"

Pros: "All the trip , not my food selection"
Cons: "6L to close to the galley"

Pros: "Was on time"
Cons: "Food, seat"

Cons: "2 of our screens didn’t have audio working so couldn’t watch movies :-(. - assistants rebooted the systems but that didn’t help :-("

Pros: "The plane took off and landed on time. Because airlines have so games their system by setting expectations of on time arrival so low that it is nearly impossible to not exceed them."
Cons: "The plane was so old the overhead lights didn’t work in our section (who failed to check that??). The overhead bins fell open at landing and things almost fell on people’s heads. There was subpar entertainment options that hadn’t been updated since at least the 90s, which was made even less acceptable since it was literally the only option for entertainment on a 7+ hour flight when none of the overhead lights worked. For a ticket that cost more than $1200, the failure of the airline on nearly all levels to provide standard services was completely unacceptable."

Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "Overall crew were pleasant, boarding organized"
Cons: "Besides being 2 hours delayed, we stayed 10+ hours crammed in very small seats, causong poor ability to rest the whole flight. Very unpleasant and painful for such a long flight."

Pros: "The plane was new and clean, the staff was extra nice, there was a tv screen in each seat. The flight was very much on time."
Cons: "The food is so, so. The seats are extremely narrow"

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."

Cons: "Very old plane. No personal entertainment. Very basic service."

Pros: "When our flight was delayed in Denver the agent at the check in gate worked very hard to get our flight plans changed with as little impact as possible."
Cons: "We understand that delays happen but due to a delay on American Airlines we have lost our luggage and it doesn't seem likely it will be returned. We had five pieces of luggage lost during our flight from the U.S. to Spain. When we arrived in Madrid we were told that all five pieces had been located. When we went to pick them up the next day there were only four pieces at the airport. We were told the fifth suitcase would be delivered when it was located. It's ten days later and there's no sign of the luggage. It has taken multiple phone calls to get the information about the luggage correct. They assure me that they have everything correctly documented and then when I call back they haven't changed a thing. It has been a very frustrating process overall."

Cons: "We left two hours after scheduled departure bc 1) the plane was late from prior flight and had to be cleaned, 2) engine check delayed the flight, 3) strong winds forced the airport (JFK) to use only one runway for departures and so on top of our plane delays we were delayed an extra half hour bc of airplane traffic. No entertainment onboard, meaning no screen on back of seat in front for movies, tv shows, etc. Food options were poor, especially breakfast (too much sugar content in all contents of “continental breakfast” pack."

Pros: "Ease of boarding, friendly and efficient crew."
Cons: "Space was very tight, music choices were terrible, no plug to charge my phone, no individual screen for entertainment, movie screen went black half way through the movie I was watching and it never came back on"

Pros: "The food was good and the crew was nice."
Cons: "We were delayed for 90 minutes. And the entertainment options were awful for such a long flight."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Attitude of in flight crew terrible food"

Pros: "Crew was able to switch our seats so that we had extra space since we were traveling with lap infant."
Cons: "Plane was new, but small for an international flight. We traveled with an infant and there was no bassinet."

Pros: "The crew in the plane was so happy and funny ! Nice group ! The food was fine, always can be better that’s the true hahahah"
Cons: "I don’t have nothing bag to say about. Was a very new plane so everything was fine."

Cons: "Late over an hour due to maintenance issues Did not receive the seats we paid for due to plane change"

Cons: "Space on coach seats was awful."

Pros: "Comfortable seats, good food and entertainment, on time"
Cons: "More water should be offered throughout the flight."

Pros: "Liked everything"

Pros: "Very pleasant staff"
Cons: "Inability to charge cell phone, poor location of TV, & inability to hear the music & movie well"

Pros: "Not muchi"
Cons: "I ordered a gluten free dinner for my husband and even checked on I two days before and they didn’t have it. He basically had no dinner"

Cons: "No wifi"

Cons: "Waiting for the bathroom I overheard a flight attendant telling the other one that she "wished that when she grew old she wasn't so damn stupid like some of the passengers on this flight". She wasn't even trying to be silent, which I thought was a bit shameless on her part and mostly why I'm writing this review. (Maybe she wasn't smart enough to think some of us understood English?) Very unprofessional."

Cons: "I was expecting to fly British Airways but instead I was booked on a American Airlines which flew me on an old shitty airplane. Never again."

Cons: "The food had no taste and cold. The seats are not comfortable enough for a long trip."

Pros: "Pilots were excellent and flight crew was good."
Cons: "I signed up for a British Airways flight and American Airlines flew the route."

Pros: "The fact that there were recently released movies in the system."
Cons: "4 1/2 hr delay in out trip. Losing our connection and rude crew."

Pros: "Airline counter worker in Philadelphia reeassigned my seat twice so that I can get a window seat with no one next to me (thanks!). Tons of films on the free entrainment system."
Cons: "Someone attempted to claim the seat next to me and the flight attendant allowed him. Luckily he moved elsewhere after I objected. There were plenty of other empty seats."

Pros: "I liked evening meal!"
Cons: "Three hour wearher delay beyond airlines control. Crew and pilot handled well with safety number one priority. They communicated with us!"

Pros: "How expedite everything was and how helpful the aa personnel at the airport were. Flight attendants were efficient and friendly."

Cons: "The shared screens."

Pros: "It was an ok airplane, entertainment system worked"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2.15 hours and didn't even offered water or anything, after a while they said if we wanted we could go out of the plane... really bad!"

Cons: "Operated by American Airlines and the service was poor The air attendants just threw the food down and the flight was not even full Had to pay for drinks- never have to do this on British Airways. Not equal service considering they are partners"

Cons: "No personal entertainment systems. I ordered a low lactose meal and got yogurt which is high in lactose!"

Cons: "Liked it all."

Cons: "Don't have tv in seats hard to watching one tv"

Pros: "crew"
Cons: "was not allowed upgrade! I only tasted the food it was not eatable. I am 70 years old and id rater starve to death than eat that food and no food to buy!"

Pros: "Nice crew and on time."
Cons: "Very old American Airlines plane, food never as good as Iberia. Not enough room for carry on. Entertainment system from 1960's"

Cons: "When we arrived at AirPort El Dorado, we discovered that our flight was cancelled/has been changed without warning us! They scheduled us a new flight with Vianca and Iberia: Bogotá-Madrid + Madrid-Brussels. My partner and I could not sit together on any of these flights! 1 of 10 hours and of 2 hours! I would NOT recommend AA to anyone! This was full responsability of AA!"

Pros: "The pilot was amazing!"

Cons: "food"
