Cons: "Boarding of gate A20 location in Dubai"
Cons: "Crew woke us up to ask us if we wanted food. I've only ever been woken up before for safety reasons (seat belts, etc) We were not impressed with the arrival in Dubai. We came in a large plane and had to deplane very far from the terminal onto buses, down a long set of stairs. They did not send enough buses so we waited on the hot outside stairs for about 15 minutes. It took us a full 45+ minutes from landing to get to the actual terminal. We were grateful we had a long layover or we would not have made our connecting flight!"
Pros: "Boarding logistics and flight timing were good. Being on time was a big plus. Personnel demeanour/service was good."
Cons: "Food (lunch/dinner) served was stale. I, as a vegetarian, had hoped that at least the fruit served would be good, but to the contrary. The touch-screen (Entertainment) didn't work well."

Cons: "got non-vegetarian food in spite of choosing veg. they said they didn't get the request. Unacceptable."

Cons: "Frankly can't remember much about this leg of the trip because the next 14 hour leg was so overwhelmingly bad thanks to the highly disruptive fellow passengers and the lack of control from the flight crew."

Pros: "Price on my ticket was great and comfort was good"
Cons: "The ground staff at Bangalore in India had no idea on crowd control. Before they started boarding they made no announcements. The agents would talk amongst themselves but there were no announcements. With the result that everyone rushed at once for boarding. The lady agent who was scanning the passes kept yelling at people to form a line but by then it was too late On the flight, they ran out of vegetarian meals by the time they got to my seat!!"
Pros: "I flew Emirates for the first time. You guys rock. The stewardesses very quick to help with their smiley faces. The Asian vegetarian meal was okay."
Cons: "Why did I not fly with you guys before???"
Cons: "Vegetarian meal was bad in terms of quality and quantity."
Pros: "The entertainment system was okay. The cabin crew did the best they could, but did run out of the [honestly very mediocre] food."
Cons: "Emirates' economy cabin is extremely crowded. The food is mediocre even for airplane food."
Pros: "Everything...food and staffs were great"
Cons: "I had a terrible experience on my flight from BLR to LAX on 12/30/2016. My flight from BLR was delayed for 3 hours because of fog. I had a connection flight from Dubai at 3:15 pm the same day and I was going to miss it. I had a flight from LAX to SFO(I had booked this separately via a domestic airlines) on the 31st at 10 am. The ground staff at BLR told me that they would put me on the 8:30 am flight to LAX on 31st. That would mean more than a 12 hour wait at Dubai airport and they informed me that accommodation would be provided. Based on this I rebooked my LAX to SFO(I paid extra for this) for the next day. On reaching Dubai I was told that I will be put on the 3:30 pm flight on 31st instead of the 8:30 am flight. That would mean a 20 hour wait at the airport. I was also given a SINGLE food voucher and told that no hotel accommodation would be provided. I was also going to miss the LAX to SFO flight which I had rebooked. I requested the ground staff to try and put me on a direct flight to SFO instead. After begging them for a while they put me on a stand by status on the 7:30 am flight the next day. I spent 12 hours in the airport. That flight was further delayed by 3 hours. When my husband contacted the customer service on 31st morning, they told him that accommodation would be provided and sent me an email confirming that. This was in the morning after I had spent 12 hours in the airport. If accommodation was available why was I told by the ground staff that all rooms were full? I also saw them hand out hotel vouchers to other passengers with shorter wait times than mine. Was it based on their nationality(I sincerely hope not but the reviews I am reading of Emirates online suggest otherwise). Fog and other weather conditions are completely understandable but the discriminatory behaviour of the ground staff in Dubai was really disappointing. This new year weekend was my honeymoon and it was completely ruined because of this trip."
Pros: "Our flight got delayed by 14 hrs, pf course we missed the connecting flight. We have spent mor than 24 hours in airport without any details about our connection and multiple hours in the line trying to get an answer. Ridiculous service if something goes wrong. No back up plan"
Pros: "-Airbus A380 from dubai to SFO and backforth was very pleasant and almost zero noise in cabin. However flight design is little awkward that it squeezed me, wife and our baby in bassinet seat. - We had opted for Asian veg food and was very tasty and was served hot all the time. - Many restrooms - Travel accessories - Great entertainment options."
Cons: "- Cabin crew were bit rude and didn't care much even though we had baby when flying from SFO to Dubai. - Restrooms are oddly placed inside flight. - Can improve on food menu and varieties and also wish there were more snacks to munch. - Boarding process need to much more organized."
Pros: "Spacious, great service, amazing entertainment selection. Food on the return leg from Dubai to Seattle was bland and not tasty. Uninspired. But the leg to Dubai from Seattle is great food. Very tasty"
Cons: "Medicore service tryed almost all major airlines,"
Pros: "The seat was comfortable."
Cons: "Food was really bad. I have travelled in Qatar Airways B class and there I was impressed by the food quality. Here it was really pathetic. Crew was helpful but were not willing to go an extra step. Like , offering a cup of coffee after someone wakes up."
Pros: "On time on each leg of the journey. Excellent food, excellent service. In flight Internet available for just US $2 for duration of the journey. Thoughtful meal selections and gifts"
Cons: "Seat selection is very constrained 48 hours before journey, even for passengers booked together on same ticket. Would strongly recommend that automatic default seating selection for passengers booked on the same ticket should be for all of them to be seated together, right from the time the ticket is paid for rather than having to individually select where each passenger sits."
Pros: "Space and cleanness"
Pros: "The flight itself was fantastic. Perfection as usual. Emirates is surely neck to neck with Singapore Airlines for the number one spot of the best airline in the world."
Cons: "1. I joined at Bangalore. The staff worked strictly according to the rules. While this is good it lends itself to passenger discomfort at times. Example: I had only 1 suitcase of 45 pounds, and I had a hand baggage of 13.7 kgs, because I was carrying all my precious crystalware back to Houston. The attendant kept insisting I lighten the hand baggage to les than 7 kgs. Finally he even suggested I send the hand baggage as checked luggage. He must be insane! I had a few thousand dollars worth of crystal in that hand bag and there was no way I'd send as checked luggage. Finally, I lightened the load to 10 kgs and called his manager and I was allowed to carry the hand luggage. 2. On landing at Dubai, everything unraveled. The airport was full of thousands of stranded passengers because 18 hours ago a plane had crash-landed at the tarmac causing flight cancellations. Obviously Emirates was poorly prepared for handling this this emergency. Many of the passengers, including myself, ended up standing at the customer service counters (there were about 10 customer service stations all over the airport), and every customer station had about 500 irate passengers and 3 or 4 agents handling them. Not only that, the customers were standing in stuffy atmosphere, no fod no water for hours, many mothers were desperate with children. Emirates had no idea how to handle this situation. I caught hold of a senior police official and told him that the least he could do was to give the customers some bottled water to keep them hydrated. Within minutes, in typical Arab hospitality - many cases of bottled water showed up, followed by cupcakes and then Mango Frootis. This helped to calm the passengers down. Then there was the chaos of everyone crowding the service desk. No lines, no semblance of order. After discussion with the policeman, we installed barriers for that passengers would stand single file. One thing that was very wrong and out of our control was there were only 3, sometimes 4, persons behind the desk, attending to more than 500 stranded passengers at each station. I reckon we would need at least 20 or 30 staff at each station. I noted that at each customer depot there were at least 10 computer stations at our service station, but only 3 were manned. Also, there was no one to advise the passengers on their status, what arrangements were being made, what the status update of the situation was...... nothing. We just stood in a bunch at the customer service desk and hoped for some attention. Appalling. Emirates needs to beef up their crisis management strategies. As a Crisis Manager myself, I was appalled to see how poor their capability to respond to a crisis situation was. I have many ideas based on my experience in crisis management. If you want suggestions call me. Besides this crisis, Emirates has always been a very good airline to me. Their everyday service is impeccable and a treat to experience.

V were stranded at airport without sleep.V r planning to claim compensation for this horrible situation because of Emirates"
Pros: "Inflight services"
Cons: "Delayed flight, missed connecting flight due to that. On the ground staff should have better coordinated from arrival to boarding of next flight. Chaotic and short staffed security personnel at Frankfurt airport. Overall a pathetic experience"
Pros: "the food on LH755 was decent. LH454 second snack, a cold sandwich was inedible! Too salty, soggy and just plain yucky!"
Pros: "Crew was fantastic!"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "The layover time was too close for FRA. By the time everyone deplaned and was shuttled to the terminal by a bus it was already my boarding time. I had to rush through the passport control feeling nervous The seat pitch of the flight was narrow. I could not use my laptop once the person in front of me reclined."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "Should have been on time"
Pros: "Crew was awful. Grumpy and not friendly. They hate their customers especially children."
Cons: "This was my worst experience on any Lufthansa flights. Worst ever!"

Cons: "Better time management."
Cons: "Seats are quite uncomfortable and not so quite flat. For an overnight flight it was quite painful."
Pros: "crew onboard and food/entertaiment."
Cons: "could do without the delays. transit time was reduced to less than an hour in Frankfurt because flight to Frankfurt was delayed by 45 mins. it is becoming very stressful to transit in FRA every time."
Cons: "Media screen did not work and flight attendant was indifferent and made no attempt to resolve. If a passenger made a request we/they were told they were too busy. Food was minimal at beat."
Pros: "Friendly and cheerful crew. Very generous with the drinks."
Cons: "Very very long walk from aircraft to Schiphol exit. I must have walked for 20 minutes to get out. Not really Lufthansa's fault though."
Pros: "Crew very good"
Cons: "Could not check in online or get seat reservations in advance (other flights for journey allowed us to choose seats when we booked flights). This meant we were sitting separately and groundstaff suggested we were on standby, which we definitely weren't! Very irritating and unnecessary."
Cons: "Poor customer support and no response on phone calls when u tried to cancel my return ticket."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight was on time. Overall excellent experience."
Cons: "On line check-in 23 hrs prior to departure is not convenient for out of town passengers travelling to B'luru to catch the flight, couldn't get internet access to do the check -in on time. 48 to 72 hr check-in window would be better."
Cons: "My seats were broken on two flights--could not recline. Maintain the equipment better."
Cons: "These scheduled flights on Jan 1, 2019 were cancelled by Lufthansa and we were not informed of these scheduled cancellations either by email or SMS. We waited for several hours at the airport before being informed by an airport staff. We missed one day of work and lot of inconvenience with transportation and accommodation in Bengaluru."
Pros: "Loved it!"
Cons: "Liked it all"
Pros: "Crew was wonderful and I love flying Lufthansa always:)."
Cons: "Onboard entertainment didn’t have good selection for me for such a long flight 4 different flights I took.And some of the touch screens didn’t work properly:(."
Pros: "Travel is good and comfortable"
Cons: "Travel from Frankfurt to London was quite late start . Delay in immigration check."
Pros: "Nice Biz Class with typical empty center seat. Pleasant FAs."
Cons: "No complaints."
Cons: "The food on Lufthansa is terrible. Many crew members are rude and unaccomodating, even in business class. I will never pick Lufthansa if I have to fly business class again."
Pros: "Was very courteous and helpful though out the trip"
Pros: "I wasn't expecting free in-flight movies and meals, which were very welcome"
Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "Food was small portion, roll was chilled, not warmed up. There was NO snack in the middle of the flight, breakfast was very unhealthy, all sweets!!!"
Pros: "Having a very difficult time thinking of something I like about the whole service. Maybe the checking in process was a little bit smoother at San Diego compared to other airports."
Cons: "As many of you know, Frankfurt/San Diego is a new service offered by Lufthansa. It touts direct flights to and from Europe. It’s main advertising draw was connection to the east. Many of their connecting flights at Frankfurt are scheduled within an hour of arrival. This possess a high risk of missing your connecting flight. I experienced this personally as a major number of my fellow travelers missed their connecting flights. Though Frankfurt has good directions, transfers take a long time due to multiple security checks and due to the size of the Airport. LAYOVER OF AT LEAST TWO HOURS WOULD BE BEST. Anything less, you risk missing your flight. I was personally selected TWICE for ‘random check’ for the same flight! Not sure how that can happen! The flight itself is long and arduous. the economy seats are small, cramped and don’t recline much at all. The entertainment selection was very limited. The TV touch screen barely worked. The food was tasteless and service was not much better. I have a hard time sleeping on flights with such bad seats but we had air hostess who kept talking the whole flight and that did not help with resting my eyes. I highly suggest taking a different airline through LAX. I personally feel like driving to LA and taking a flight there would be the wise move."
Pros: "Excellent boarding experience. Very good food, overall a very comfortable journey."
Pros: "The flight from Chicago was only about 2/3 full and there was no one in the seat next to me so I had plenty of room to stretch out and get comfortable. The flight was super smooth...hardly any turbulence and crew worked hard to keep passengers refreshed."
Cons: "I sat next to the biggest jerk on the plane (something out of Lufthansa control so I don't hold that against them). Also the seats were not the most comfortable...even for an economy seat was pretty basic. Also the entertainment system was temperamental and some of the features (flight tracker) didn't work at all."
Pros: "Great staff, quick boarding and vegetarian options were avaliable. This was the most pleasant experience I've had with a flight service. I commend Lufthansa and the crew of this aircraft."
Cons: "Minimal entertainment but understandable for a short flight."
Cons: "Could have more options for entrainment"
Pros: "The business class area was spacious"
Cons: "Crew is too curt... they could use a little more smile"
Cons: "Less movies (Hindi) and economy seats aren't as comfortable as emirites."
Pros: "Travel time was good and easy travel"
Cons: "Entertainment tv tapes"
Pros: "It was a short flight"
Cons: "Sitting in the exit row meant that we could not rest bags under our seat but no overhead was left for a single backpack between my partner and I (our only luggage for the flight). Additionally other passengers were rude regarding overhead and the crew was not communicative on who should put what sort of baggage in the overhead."
Cons: "Walking under rain from the plane to terminal. Not as good as Lufthansa was some years ago. Old planes."
Pros: "Premium Economy is awesome! Bigger seats with more leg room than I need (I'm just over 6 feet tall), leg rest (oh yeah) and a travel kit with toothbrush, toothpaste, socks and travel sleep mask. The crew was very good-hospitable and accommodating."
Cons: "Economy is terrible-small seats-went one way on economy and never doing that again!! FYI- Emirates economy is awesome and so this is my first time not flying economy.."
Pros: "Our flight from BLR to FRA got cancelled because of bad weather. The agent at the check in desk immediately put us on an alternate AIr France flight via CDG to LAX, which left an hour before our FRA flight. The service on the flight was excellent. But we are most thankful for the quick re-booking on a different alternative, ensuring no hiccup. We will only be flying Lufthansa from now on, and recommending Lufthansa to all friends and colleagues."
Pros: "I flew in an A380 from LAX to FRA and that is a huge airplane but very nice. The flight from FRA to TLV was full and that airplane had no USB charge ports and no seat back video. I refuse to fly El Al because they don't have video and charge ports. Now I need to avoid flying with Lufthansa."
Cons: "No USB charge ports and no seat back video. They only have movies from Sony."
Pros: "Thank goodness the movies were good."
Cons: "Had to wait in 5 lines before someone could check our bags. no organization at boarding time. Just a free for all."
Pros: "Service for economy class was what you would expect from other airlines in business class. Lufthansa has the best service of any airline I have ever flown with."
Pros: "Food, crew and comfort was alright"
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. There was not announcement. Everyone rushed to board and was very chaotic"

Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "Old plane, no power chargers, cold during the flight"
Pros: "Seats are comfortable. Food was good."
Cons: "The lunch was seved just 1 hour before landing and also lunch to breakfast gap was 8 hours. They should serve lunch at least 2 hours before landing."
Pros: "Polite crew"
Cons: "The food, inflight entertainment. Our flight was delayed by over an hour."
Pros: "Good food, friendly cabin crew, prompt boarding and arrived on time."
Cons: "Narrow seats, not enough leg room"
Pros: "The flight crew were excellent"
Cons: "The seat didn’t recline. So when the passenger in front of me pushed her chair down, i had little to no space to put my food Boarding was not properly managed. The gate agebts did npt ask to check travel documents before boarding therefore delaying the flow of boarding traffic"
Pros: "Crew was helpful and polite."
Cons: "- limited choice for entertainment. - shaky video screen - why do flight to/from India are not docked at a tunnel? Spread the pain of travelling on a bus to all passengers."
Pros: "Excellent food and service!"
Cons: "Food quality poor.They served lunch after 7 hours of breakfast.The Food quality also not good."
Pros: "The crew was friendly (for the most part). Left more or less on time. Food exceed my (rather low) expectations. Good flight, well above average."
Cons: "Couldn't hear the loud speaker at all in London airport. Not loud enough. Poor enunciation. The guy serving tea during the flight was pretty rude. Not of fan of that guy."
Cons: "They cancel my flight the day before"
Cons: "Food options very poor. Was not asked about veg or non veg just directly served veg. Entertainment on a 9 hour flight was devoid of choices."
Pros: "Flight crew was great."
Cons: "always late"
Pros: "Entertainment is pretty good, a nice selection to choose from. The food has improved since last year with their new menu. Crew were pleasant enough."
Cons: "I paid for an extra leg room seat, which for me was in front of the bulkhead. However, I think this caused more discomfort than comfort. There is no gap under the bulkhead to put your feet, so although you don’t get a seat in front of you leaning back, there isn’t enough room to straighten your legs out which on a 12 hour flight isn’t comfortable."
Pros: "Service, generally"
Cons: "Noticeable lower standards on flights bound for India: poor quality seats and TV monitors."
Pros: "Nice new plane. Spacey."
Cons: "Ba.com app is flaky. Looks like s/w not tested properly"
Pros: "polite crew"
Cons: "old plane, old entertainment systems, no updates"

Pros: "It was comfortable, the staff were helpful and it was a pleasant flight."
Cons: "I am not tall enough to reach the overhead compartments to place my bag inside. Two passengers kindly helped me on the return flight. On my last trip with BA a 6ft steward told me off for not being able to lift my case over my head and place in the overhead compartment. He refused to help me with my bag he said he had a bad back and I swore I would never fly British Airways again and I wouldn't have if I had realised that my return flight was with them. However, this time was different it was a good flight but if passengers don't help lift my case in the overhead locker in future I have no idea what I will do. I never have this problem with other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was late due to Thanksgiving traffic. The Crew was then very rude during the flight and unapologetic for what has to be the most ridiculous reason for a flight delay I have ever experienced. If a passenger had that excuse, do you think the airline would wait for the passenger? Lame."
Cons: "Seat comfort in Business Class worse than low cost airlines Crew rude and aloft Food terrible"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly, and the flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "Boarding was a nightmare. There was not enough room for people to wait, no queuing in place nor priority boarding. We were in row 19 (so mid way through the plane) and by the time the refreshment trolley got to us a large majority of the food AND drink was sold out - seemed very strange!"
Pros: "This was the first time I had flown into Oakland instead of SFO. It was faster, easier and close to my destination than San Francisco Airport."
Cons: "The selection of music on BA flights has fallen dramatically in the last year. I prefer to listen to music rather than watch movies and in the past there was a good selection and a broad choice."
Cons: "NO DRINKS OR FOOD WERE FREE. YOU HAD TO PAY FOR WATER! This seems a little ridiculous considering it was almost a 4 hour international flight... I was not pleased. No personal TVs, seats were not great either. Crew was super slow... I found that the majority of British Airways attendants were slow, but there are a few that are efficient."
Pros: "Checking documents on entering gate area rather than at boarding time, made for more efficient boarding"
Cons: "Delay in baggage reclaim due blockage in system"
Pros: "Could not watch any movie on business class again thanks to BA falling apart old aircraft and entertainment system with defect -- this time on both video and sound."
Pros: "Seating was roomier and much more comfortable. More leg room."
Cons: "No free snacks or drinks."
Cons: "Bag didn't make it, and then the system to get it returned doesn't work as it should."
Pros: "The journey Bengaluru to London Heathrow was very comfortable with sufficient leg room. However the journey London Heathrow to San Diego was not comfortable. This is because the seats are so designed that the Seat mounts come in the way of stretching your legs. It is improperly designed which can be checked out with any expert in ergonomics."
Pros: "Had to pay for water on an international flight. That felt like buckle and diming."
Pros: "Movie selection was great!"
Cons: "Short staffed. No coffee with breakfast! Cream and sugar on tray. Flight from London to Stockholm delayed one hour due to air traffic!"
Cons: "We were not offered water or snacks unless we wanted to purchase, while the "first class" was given free meals and drinks. I was seated next to the curtain and they continually pushed it in to me as they serviced the plane."
Cons: "BA lost one of our baggage. And it is been a week and we still haven't gotten our bag. We had some unique and good things in that bag."
Cons: "Food. Choice of chicken or vegetarian curry. And the chicken ran out - so no choice other than vegetarian. Who designed this ? The breakfast had 2 choices that were not vegetarian.... Lounge. I have an American Gold card and a United gold card. All United partners allow use of their lounge. BA does not. Will fly United partners in the future. Coach seats are unreasonably small for international flights. Small than competitors"
Pros: "I was blocked and was not given permission to choose a sit when checking-in"
Pros: "Friendly gesture"
Cons: "Maintenance of toilets"
Cons: "the journey map was very poor quality - old aircraft perhaps ?"
Pros: "I got upgraded which was a huge bonus and the staff were great and attentive."
Pros: "Generous with drinks and snacks, ever courteous"
Pros: "Timely departure. Free tea and biscuits. No queues at check in. Generous baggage allowance."
Cons: "Very expensive Pre check in seat selection."
Pros: "Once I arrived to London and missed my connecting flight due to British Airways being two hours late, the re-routing process was somewhat helpful but I could not arrive back to my destination until 24 hours later as scheduled causing me to pay an additional day worth of parking for my vehicle in Atlanta and missing a day of work."
Cons: "The flight was delayed and although I had a very small amount of time to make the flight upon arriving to London, I was denied boarding because I was told I wouldn't make the flight, my seat was given up and I had to rebook another flight."
Pros: "Very friendly"
Cons: "Everything was perfect"
Pros: "Fast transportation"
Cons: "It could be better if the pandemic was over, I think everything could be better."
Cons: "Employees I understand that sometimes they see a lot of people and it can get overwhelming with the job but giving good attitude it’s a most."
Pros: "The crew was great, comfortable"
Cons: "I was on a long business trip heading back from India. The flight was delayed leaving India which would have made me miss my connection in London to Phx. Fortunately the flight from London to Phx was delayed (because it was delayed arriving into London) and I was able to make my connection. Especially when we had to take a bus from the plane to the terminal, there is no way I would have made my connection. While I know there are reasons for the delays, it is frustrating. After a long week of traveling and 21 hours of flying- ones patience does run out."
Pros: "The seat wasn’t very comfortable"
Pros: "Crew was good. There was a lot of movies available. A LOT!"
Cons: "The boarding process was the WORST!"

Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Boarding system, come located entertainment o/b, non existan food/snacks"
Pros: "Purser Rockland Albrecht and his crew went out of their way to make our over night flight BA as comfortable as possible. Found us better seats and checked in to see that all was well on a busy flight. Service has certainly improved!"
Cons: "Flight was fine. Wanted to change ticket to allow more connection time between DCA and JFK and the first two sales representative sucked. I considered never flying American again. On board crew was great."
Pros: "Excellent Travel"
Pros: "All...mainly Luis, one of the on board flight attendants, in charge of pampering us with excelent attention, in the most minor details of food preparation , always pain attention to our needs and Confort."
Cons: "Nothing to complain about On this trip, wich departed Kate due to bad weather in Miami, due to heavy rain adn storm, and in spite of that, the flight arrived just a few minutes behind schedule."
Pros: "Arrived and left on time, something that really counts!"
Cons: "I checked in in Miami airport 12 hs before leaving. I was told by the fake friendly attendsnt that our seats , my husband’s snd mine, were separated. When asked to see if wevcould bd placed together she sarcastically commented that we had bought our flight through expedia and if we had dome it directky with AA we might have been together. Shame on her comment! AA offers their flights to many companies snd I now wonder if her comment is true, which makes me consider next time I choose an airline. In Buenos Aires when We checked in something similar happened and we could not book our seats the day before bcause they were all taken . The answer was if we wanted a better seat we’d have to pay because only back seats are available in economy and AA waits forbthose whi pay first and only then they”ll give us a seat. I”ve travelled several times with AA and feel the service is not worth the money I pay for it. The food on our flight back to BA was not good st all. However , I have to point out that all my flights BA to N Y, N Y to Mia and Mia BA left on time. On the whole it was good but I believe AA cares onñy about money and I feel disappointed"
Cons: "the tremendous pressure from the staff, at the American Airlines. Never before experience such a low and virtually feel like an inmate, Just because the person in doing so, was profiling and that is NO GOOD , also the airport is filthy and dirty , Nobody Cares...I will not come again as a tourist to that country.. American Airlines should train the staff to be more courteous and not to ask that many questions ..it feels like you where in Siberia.."
Pros: "Took me from point a to b. Some entertainment options, nothing spectacular."
Cons: "Toilets were dirty."
Pros: "Very nice crew. The flight attendants were very patient and efficient. Flight was very smooth and surprisingly not overcrowded. For the first time, in a long time, when getting off of the plane it was very organized and not everyone rushing and pushing to get off. Everyone followed suit and did row by row, and no one pushing or shoving which is always nice."
Cons: "The only this I would suggest is that on a longer flight you should offer better deals on food/snacks."
Pros: "Beautiful design n great storage"
Cons: "Hard to get out of seat unless in fully upright biz class position"
Cons: "The tv's did not work at our seats. Made for a horrible seven hour flight!"

Cons: "Checkin Personal It was delayed 4 hours"
Pros: "The food and entertainment were adequate, and the pilot did a good job of communicating the status of our delay."
Cons: "Takeoff was 2 hours delayed because we were waiting for the first officer. Surely this could have been anticipated and resolved earlier. The crew was inappropriately familiar with the passengers. We are not friends, and I prefer a bit of professional distance. The seats are designed for VERY tall people; my feet were swinging, as were those of everyone in my row. It was quite uncomfortable."
Cons: "It was cancelled"
Pros: "Excellent entertainment options"
Cons: "Wi-fi not available for most of the flight. Very uncomfortable middle seats for long flights such as this one."
Pros: "Surprisingly the seats were not cramped as on other airplanesI have benn on"
Cons: "I wished there was no delay in Miami each way. Miami to Washington an overcrowded runway caused the delay"
Pros: "Was really good flight"

Cons: "In flight entertainment was below expectations"

Pros: "Everything was ok."
Cons: "I STRONGLY dislike how the airline acts as if they are the immigration and they demanded that I buy a very expensive plane ticket to show that I would be leaving Argentina within 3 months. There are so many expats in Buenos Aires and they all buy tickets in Argentina to go to Uruguay within 3 months. Upon showing the immigration of Argentina my USA passport at the entry, they have NEVER asked me for any kind of proof that I would be leaving within 3 months. At first I started to purchase a ticket to Uruguay by boat and the attendant even asked me the website of the boat because she told me that these problems come up all the time for expats going to Argentina for longer than 3 months. You are ONLY AN AIRLINE. YOU ARE NOT THE IMMIGRATION OF ARGENTINA. Having this said, I never plan to fly Avianca again."
Pros: "The ginger ale."
Cons: "This was my return trip with more delays due to maintenance issues of the aircraft. 10/17/16 flight 1585 was the outgoing flight delayed five hours on my departing trip. I waited at the baggage carousel 15 minutes for my bag after over an hour delay due to switching aircrafts. With a flight arriving this late in the evening with the low volume of bags checked (due to checked luggage charges), this should not be the case. Five minutes to gulp down ginger ale."
Cons: "Not on time, no entertainment system, little space"
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "Organized process for checkin and boarding, flight staff and service, plane features and amenities."
Pros: "La puntualidad y responsabilidad del bpersonal de abordo."

Cons: "Everything was terrible."
Pros: "We arrived early. :)"
Cons: "It is unacceptable that United is still submitting its customers in business class to old planes and very old seats - including rows with four seats looking backwards with no separation between the seats (with the same issue on the window seats, which are double seats). Dreadful flight - my fare shall be refunded in full."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Tight space and food could be better"
Pros: "Crew friendly and helpful."

Cons: "Kayak's third party CS company gives me the ANA schedule while in fact I have to check in with United Airlines. Because of this, I was not able to check in on line in San Diego. Please ensure that Kayak & their affiliate are well coordinated with the information they send out to customers."
Cons: "The pilot is inexperienced and did not aware early landing more than 30 mins would be undesirable as the assigned gate is still occupied by another plane. Therefore, we were forced to taxi around leading to excessive delay more than 20mins caausing a lot of conencting passengers had to run. The pilot should be retrained"
Pros: "service was good. instructions in English & Portuguese."
Cons: "lavatories didn't work below 5,000 ft. It was extremely cold so I had to put on my coat. Seats of course are very uncomfortable."
Pros: "A comida"
Cons: "As cadeiras poderiam inclinar mais para trás."
Cons: "No crew after the plane was ready, caused further delay of 3.5 hours. I missed last bus to my school & had to spend the night in ORD. So disregard of passengers!"

My carry-on bag was taken in London, as there was not enough room on the fight to Munich, but then when I finally got to Cairo, one day after I was supposed to arrive, both bags were lost and I stayed one week without anything. I missed an entire day of my vacation because of the cancellation and confusion in Rome. I am a Gold Star Alliance member and this was the WORST flight in I have ever taken in my LIFE!"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly and as planned."
Cons: "nothing to complain about on this flight."
Pros: "Seats were in good condition."
Cons: "Tight seating. Have to buy entertainment. No wi-fi"
Cons: "The flight attendants were incredibly rude and you would think that after assaulting a passenger, they'd try to step it up a notch. I had fallen asleep in my seat and I woke up to the flight attendant rattling and waving a snack in my face saying "I don't want to have to come back to your seat if you get hungry later"---the flight was 1 hour, I doubt I would trouble them for much."
Pros: "I liked the short trip and ease of getting on/off"
Cons: "Lack of smiles from the attendant"
Pros: "It was comfortable"
Cons: "lots of turbulence but that happens"
Pros: "Friendly crew and easy boarding. Handled. Rude obnoxious passenger very well"
Cons: "Old, rundown feeling. Not real comfortable"
Cons: "I had to changes terminals 2x and flight was delayed 2x."
Cons: "Boarding in IAH was a mess. Several gate changes, airport information screens didn't match with the actual departure gate, lines were not properly identified. Very bad."
Pros: "Smooth ride"
Cons: "Snack was a ridiculous cookie. Lame."
Pros: "Boeing 777; smooth flight across country."
Cons: "Plane late departing because of late arrival of aircraft. Literally no gate update announcements with explanations until within 15 minutes of boarding. Consequence: no food, and no explanation from cabin crew about menu change. Food choices then were unappealing. Movie selections were mediocre."
Pros: "Was on time, good landing."
Cons: "II spent $502.20 on a flight that ended up a complete disaster, ultimately costing me even more money to fix. UA411 ORD -> LAX -> SBP ORD - LAX take of was delayed. After landing we sat on the tarmac without explanation for about an hour, which caused me to miss my connection to SBP. I ran the ridiculous gate change distance through the airport and arrived 1 minute prior to scheduled take-off and was not allowed to board. They left behind at least 8-9 passengers (that I saw) that were also delayed from the ORD-LAX flight – this is probably 1/3 of the flight. It's absurd. I then waited in the Customer Service line for 30 mins and was told I have to go online to request my flight credit for the flight I wasn't allowed to board. I was also told to request a credit for the rental car that I had to arrange last minute online. United did absolutely zero to assist. The next flight out wasn't until after 11am the next day, which caused me to miss a prepaid event, which was the entire reason for my trip. I had to drive over 3 hours in the middle of the night arriving 5am the next morning due to United Airlines' incompetence."
Pros: "The flight attendants were very nice and pilots did great despite turbulence"
Cons: "Didn't like the snack mix and too cheap to pay for WiFi"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "It would be great if those with connecting flights could choose their seat for both flights"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and easy. Crew was kind to allow me to use an empty seat in the middle row and get more space. Managed to connect to onboard entertainment with a tablet and avoided to use the tiny screen that still exists on United's 767s."
Cons: "Food was a bit tasteless."
Pros: "It was a pretty smooth flight and it was pretty well organized."
Cons: "The plane was in the Houston hanger most of the day, but it seems they didn't test it. Even after being delayed on the ground due to rain and a mechanical problem with the ramp for three hours, the plane had to turn around and come back to Houston due to another mechanical issue. Finally left 13.5 hours late. I did receive a hotel room, breakfast and 10,000 miles compensation for the hassle, but I would rather have been in Brazil on time."
Pros: "No hassle direct flight overnight."
Cons: "Ignoring the SHITTY, SHITTY, SHITTY airport experience that seems to be unavoidable, the on board entertainment that one had to pay for required a card swipe, but the reader didn't work, so I didn't get to use it."
Pros: "made good time."
Cons: "they lost our luggage on the way back,Didn't make it to Portland. But it was brought to our house at 7:45. I think for 1600.00 for tickets you should provide pretzels. That would be great. Thanks"
Pros: "I liked that I finally arrived at my destination and that the crew did their best to accommodate the passengers."
Cons: "-The flight was delayed with only vague information given out at the gate. We were told three different times we would be boarding, but only to be told we were experiencing a delay again. + If the gate announcements included apologies with, or even instead of, the inaccurate boarding calls it would have made a difference. -The passenger compartment was about 15 degrees hotter than the airport and it never really cooled off. The front WC was out of service and created a long line for the only other WC on the plane, which you sometimes you would stand in when turbulence would hit. This was honestly one of the most uncomfortable commercial flights I have taken since 1991. I had to call out of work due to the stress the flight put on some of my joint injuries."
Pros: "leg room was not too bad"
Cons: "I needed to ask questions about my flights because of delays and not a single person acted professional at the gates, quite rude responses. On each of my 3 plane changes there was only one attendant actually smiled. Another read from a sheet of paper like she didn't know what to say. Two others never dmiled or said you're welcome after I thanked them. Im used to the friendly staff on Southwest. They are great!"
Cons: "I got to the airport 40 minutes early. The flight was out at 6:20, I was there by 5:40. They did not let me print out a boarding pass. I could see the gate from the security line and the security line was EMPTY. There was no reason for them not to let me get on the plane, but they ended up scheduling me for a flight to Denver with the connecting flight in the morning- delaying my trip 24 hrs and charging me an extra 125$!!! I ended up paying an extra 85$ to American and was able to get to PHX that afternoon! The ladies at United were straight up RUDE too. When I told the lady at the counter my name she rolled her eyes."
Cons: "- Horrible food; - Very old airplane. The oldest I ever flew; - The entertainment system was horrible and not worked. We came the whole flight without having access to anything, neither the map of the flight."
Pros: "Crew was very accommodating to the fact that I was flying with a large service animal. They even brought him his own dinner. They were excellent people."
Pros: "Everything went smooth"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable, the video entertainment was top notch, bathrooms were very roomy compared to other planes and flight attendants were nice to us. I only want to ride on these style planes from now on. They also were quick to connect the gate bridge which is important to me. I couldnt believe that I actually wanted the flight to be longer to watch more movies."
