Pros: "Flight crew were excellent."
Cons: "Best flight ever. Everything was perfect . Best crew ,"
Pros: "Good like always"
Cons: "All perfect"
Cons: "During checkin process they weighed my laptop bag along with my hand baggage a small suitcase. Laptop is considered as personal item. The combined weight exceeded 7 kg and hence I had pay for excess baggage even though my checked in Baggage were close correct 23 kg limit. This was an issue with most"
Pros: "Crew was very nice"
Cons: "Seat was very uncomfortable (in comparison to the other emirates flights I’ve taken), and the bathroom was very dirty (trash was full and towels were piled up on the sink)."
Cons: "Laptop bags are not allowed at New Delhi Airport. Only one carry on is allowed with no laptop bag. These are not Emirates policies. New Delhi airport has its own policies. Highly frustrating at that moment because these are not the baggage allowances anywhere else in the world"
Pros: "Nice and clean flight good crew"
Cons: "Nothing as such"
Cons: "Crew was a little less cooperative than my usual Emirates experiences"
Pros: "I like the dealing of staff members"
Cons: "Didn’t like behavior of Dubai airport’s staff. They were too rude and Newark wheelchairs helper were asking for too much tips. Are they allowed to ask for tips and speak rudely with senior citizens. Please give attention towards these problems"
Pros: "Good overall service."
Pros: "We liked the service that was given, the crew member was nice."
Cons: "We didn’t like how are seats were all messed up, my kids, my wife had all different seatings."
Cons: "We asked them to provide us with assistance as we had 3 infants with us but no one helped us from check in to boarding gate. Even though we called emirates customer care to afd oyr name in assistance when we booked the ticket but at airport they said we cannot privide any assistance . Moreover one of our family member had wheel chair assistance they never provided wheel chair at Dubai airport reason being they said they have shortage of wheel chairs. Such a bad experience we had !! I will never recommend anyone to travel with Emirates."
Pros: "Good, entertainment & comfort"
Cons: "Crew not bad"
Pros: "Food, Service, entertainment"
Pros: "I liked the service provided."
Cons: "Would like to see decent vegetarian food options. Also please introduce some variance in your menu. the menu has been the same in the last 3 flights."
Cons: "one of the Lady crew member was very rude. When i asked her child meal she made a very bad face and told me that u should have booked online. I explained her i tried but couldnt book coz of may be cheap fare category. It was quite embarrassing for me :("
Pros: "The overall experience was good from boarding to disembark. emirates is a quality airline with affordable pricing. Planes were neat and clean cabin crew did their job at their best."
Cons: "In some instances their was a shortage of food option. Although the menu said you could have a choice but some of the choices were exhausted by the time crew served it to the half of the travellers and the rest have to eat whatever was leftover. I think Emirates should stock a bit more of the food especially on a plane like Airbus 380. Its a huge aircraft and passengers sting at the vey end had to wait almost 45 min to 1 hr to get their food and that too was whatever leftover. They should make efforts to server all the passengers within a short amount to time rather than keep them waiting for so long. Most of the time more than half of the passengers had already eaten while those sitting in the back were still waiting for their food. Its not cabin crew's inefficiency but rather a policy problem that needs to be addressed."
Pros: "No commutation no help for transit"
Cons: "I am a women no help first time fling with them"

Pros: "All is good"
Pros: "The in-flight entertainment was good, with many, many options to choose from. The headphones provided were certainly more comfortable than anything I have experienced on other airlines."
Cons: "The boarding process is chaotic. Especially so in Dubai. Moreover, they do not allow a laptop bag in addition to the normal carry-on baggage. Every other airline I have flown allows this. What is even more frustrating is that a women's purse is allowed, so I saw women carrying giant bags with their laptops, etc. in those bags, whereas I had to stuff mine into my carry-on briefcase. This is not normal (as in, other airlines allow it), is not mentioned in the ticket, not mentioned while given the boarding pass, BUT is strictly enforced at the very last minute right before entering the plane."
Pros: "The Airbus was very good -as comfortable as possible in Economy."
Cons: "It was a little noisy in our seats (we were next to one of the crew areas). But the biggest gripe was about the way we were treated when queuing. We all expect to have to wait our turn but it's incredibly frustrating when 1) the system isn't fair (eg splitting a queue into two then allowing those behind you to go to the front of a new line) and 2) treating us like second class by drawing a curtain in front of our faces so Business class people don't have to see us when they disembark."

Pros: "Elegance in general"
Cons: "Nothing to complain"
Pros: "I am a frequent flyer for abt 10 years but airline does not give any advantage to regular custoners. As per IATA in case if stay more than 8 hoursin transit they should provide complementary rooms to aged people atleast. Very POIR customer service"
Cons: "Airlune doesnot differentiate between firime customercand its own frequent flyers customers. I prefer other airliness for better customer service."
Pros: "The crew were nice, entertainment was very good"
Cons: "The Delhi staff were very rude, the baggage allowance was inconsistent in terms of inbound and outbound flights, was excessively charged!"

Pros: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Cons: "The flight was so delayed I missed my connecting flight to jfk."
Pros: "I like the professional approach of the airline and the staff. Seats are really comfortable and i did not need my sleeping pillow at all as the headrest of my seat was already so comfortable."
Cons: "There is not much which i did not like about this airline. Just like other airlines, now have started feeling that Economy class travellers are being approached with bit biased approach in hospitality though they have major contribution in meeting flight running expenses. All airlines should start considering this fact and improve the overall approach."

Pros: "food was great!"
Pros: "Cabin crew were accommodating and nice throughout the flight. Meals were good and the service was quick. Large range of entertainment selection for the trip helped pass the time."

Pros: "Staff were excellent and very friendly, service was great, and the entertainment on board was very good."
Cons: "We were waiting in our seats for about an hour before take off due to a need to de-ice the plane due to snowy weather. I think everyone would have been more comfortable in the waiting area while this happened, or at least given the option to do so."
Pros: "Food and entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "Staff seemed a bit stressed and busy but very efficient"
Cons: "Flight was an hour and a half late boarding, sat on the tarmac for 45 minutes, and there was no offer of complimentary beverages. Very barebones level of service."
Cons: "It was terribly late. No one had a clue on when flight would depart."
Pros: "Quality of service was good in the plane"
Cons: "Not many good recent movies / shows on in flight entertainment. Food was okay. But, the quantity was too little. It took a really long time for a second boarding pass check at London airport. Other airlines don't usually ask for a second check in"
Pros: "Free everything...food, wine, spirits, movies, etc. Nice crew!"
Cons: "Seats a little hard, main dinner dish was a little odd but okay."
Cons: "My flight was cancelled on Christmas Day, but we had to stand in line to wait to get onto another flight on another airline. They were so slow that the flight they tried to put everyone left and then they offered ZERO assistance to get another flight and wouldn’t even refund my ticket, just told me after waiting 3 hours to call whoever I booked with for a refund."

Pros: "Staff was top notch in service and kindness"
Pros: "nice new seats"
Cons: "The entre food top was torn, apparently opened before I got it, also there was no salad dressing. ATTN RICHARD BRANSON: Are you concerned for our environment? The head stewardess would not refill my sports water bottle after I asked her nicely, instead she poured water into a cup which she threw away, wasting plastic unnecessarily. I told her I did not like wasting plastic and she appeared to not enjoy what I had to say. This was the same lady who handed me my dinner. Rest of crew was great."
Cons: "Seats need more padding"
Pros: "The food was surprisingly ok and the seats in PE were comfortable, plus there were two USB ports, perfect!"

Cons: "Jave to pay for everything on an overseas flight"
Pros: "The boarding and the overall flight experience was quite good."
Cons: "There were movie options such as Sully and Deepwater Horizon, which I think are unsuitable for flights. Overall, the movie options could have had more variety."
Pros: "Was a comfy flight thanks to not having anyone sitting next to me. If someone wouldve been next to me it wouldnt have been as nice because the seats are too bunched for international travel."
Cons: "My seat wouldnt recline properly. There were limited food options for non pork eaters. No outlets for power. How can you operate an international flight with nothing provided for those who need to charge their devices after some time. Not a smart design move."
Pros: "Professional Cabin Crew Excellent "vera" entertainment"
Cons: "Chaotic boarding procedure in Cancun airport, although I accept that this is more of an issue with airport layout Removal of some of the "Virgin Atlantic" benefits such as free sports equipment will make me rethink my carrier of choice from next year. The 747 fleet is starting to feel old - when are the dream liners coming?"
Pros: "Mostly everything was fine."
Cons: "Not really anything particularly that I didn't like."
Pros: "The in flight entertainment was above average and the seats were decent"
Cons: "The attitude of the cabin crew was generally poor; at one point when I returned the post meal rubbish one member of crew commented to another on the lack of wrappers in my rubbish the other crew member replied "maybe he ate it" as this conversation took place directly behind me I assume they thought my headphones were plugged in."
Pros: "Entertainment and crew attitudes both excellent"
Cons: "On board seating. Getting far too cramped for long=haul flights"

Cons: "more masks"
Cons: "Seats were a little dirty especially for the COVID-19 going around."
Pros: "That it got me where I needed to go."
Cons: "The crew, the food, the tv capability, the amenities. Overall it was the worst international flight I have ever been on. They confiscated my unopened beer I purchased after security point. They had me assigned to a wrong seat, so I had to fight my way 20 rows up as people are filing into their seats. The hot towel to clean your hands was dry and cold. The roll was hard as a rock and cold. The crew was rude and unapproachable. It took almost 3 hours to get them to reset my tv and when she finally did it glitched the whole time I tried watching it. The croissant was literally cooked to the paper and had to rip apart Croissant to get the paper off. They didn't serve the cocktail as promised. It was a pretty poor performance on all levels, and if this survey truly means anything, I hope this gets remedied."
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "I didn't get to continue the series I started watching on an earlier flight, as this plane had more limited options. We also waited on the tarmac an long time before take-off, waiting for a part to be delivered to our plane so we could take it to Indianapolis with us."
Pros: "Great seat and always on time."
Cons: "The flight was an hour and a half late."
Pros: "crew was friendly"

Cons: "Crew was not apologetic after we missed connecting flight due to technical difficulties with their plane. I was re-routed to Barcelona and then a very budgetary Airlines to Athens which was ridiculously tight again with seating and flight was almost an hour late. Luggage didn't come until following day. And to top it off, I thought I would be flying with KLM on both legs!"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Pros: "Everything but the consistent delay"
Cons: "2 hour delay and it being the last flight out of LAX."

Cons: "The flight got delayed badly"
Pros: "A330 very nice airplane. Clean and comfortable in Delta One. Very professional cabin crew. Very good boarding process, even with every bag hand inspected."
Cons: "Flight left the gate early and took off two hours late. Arrived Atlanta 100 minutes late. Why? 7000 pounds overweight. EZE departure switched runways as we left gate, requiring removal of cargo containers, not once, but twice. In summary, DL bet wrong on runway and wind component, at the expense of on time arrival and thus connections."
Pros: "The staff"
Pros: "I love Delta, especially their newer planes that have screens in the backs of headrests and free movies."
Cons: "Leg room is never enough. I'm 6'1"."

Pros: "Amazing service!"
Cons: "very few movies to choose from. China southern had dozens"
Cons: "Planned my trip for my birthday/10 year anniversary. The first leg of the trip, flying from ft Lauderdale to atlanta was ok except for the pilot having to circle around bc he was too close to the airplane in front to land. This made us supposedly late to our connecting flight which by the way was not supposed to leave before 8:10. My husband and I arrived at the gate about 10 minutes before only to be told that the door was locked. Needless to say, we weren't the only ones. When we got up to the desk, the attendant was extremely rude. I was having a conversation with my husband about a dog that had just passed us . She immediately made her way into the conversation asking me what i was saying. I told her I was talking to my husband about the dog and under her breath said : " I'm sure you were." I then told her that i was more than sure about what I was talking about. We get booked on another flight and my seat was the only one without a working monitor. We asked the suitardess to see o If there was anything that could be done They tried to reset it to no avail. Since we didn't say anything else, it was forgotten about. My husband shared his screen with me so that I wasn't totally bored on the flight. Not the way I wanted to start off my birthday but I'm glad that nightmare is over Delta really needs to retrain their employees on customer service bc it leaves a lot to be desired!"
Pros: "The flight trip coming to an end."
Cons: "Boarding is inefficient. Attendants were friendly but not attentive. The entertainment system was malfunctioning. This was not a pleasant experience."

Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "I wanted a first class seat there were three available I asked 45 minutes before the flight took off if I could upgrade and they said that they don't allow that within one hour so I was put into a comfort seat for free but the entire flight there were three first class seats open kind of silly I would've paid"
Pros: "Got from point A to point B"
Cons: "nothing all was good as expected."
Cons: "For the second time in one day, my seat would not recline!!! Very uncomfortable for an even longer flight than the first one!!"
Pros: "This was a code share flight on a delta ticket but a virgin airline, the entertainment was great with the seat back selection, the seat comfy and the staff friendly."
Cons: "Firstly check in was a nightmare, travelling on a Virgin Australia Flight from LAX - BNE and a connecting flight BNE - PPP (Proserpine) all with Virgin Australia, and they claim they don't have the ability to tag your luggage the whole way through??? (I understand I have to collect it on arrival into another country and then take to a bag drop) but with the same airline they claim they can't do this? I travel a lot and with many other flights internationally and I can tag my bags with different airlines all the way through, but NOT WITH VIRGIN WITH THE SAME AIRLINE ALL THE WAY THROUGH? They can't do it? Then 2 hour delay on the tarmac after taxiing out from the gate at LAX, which got us in late to Brisbane. The food on this leg LAX-BNE for the vegetarian option was terrible, which was strange as on the fist flight over from BNE-LAX it was the best vegetarian food on any flight I've ever had. Strangely 6 months out from our flight I tried calling Delta to upgrade our tickets and was told they had no way of doing it as the Delta computer system isn't linked Virgin system. Then calling Virgin to upgrade I was told I can't as it is a Delta ticker. We tried again a week out from the flight and got the same response and told to try at check-in. We tried then at check in and told they have no idea how to do this as only so many seats are allocated to Delta tickets and they can't access the Delta system?? So very frustrating and we could never upgrade?"
Cons: "All was good."
Cons: "The fact that we wait on the tarmac for an extended period of time before we were informed that we had too much fuel so we had to burn off fuel before we could take off."
Pros: "Had a decent seat other than I was in the back corner of the aircraft."
Cons: "Took too long to get to seat."
Pros: "Planes were nice and updated, screens, wi-fi, easy to board, on time! FA were nice and friendly. Delta terminal at Mia was easier to navigate than AA. Liked that they didn't charge for middle seat towards the front. I feel claustrophobic in the back but hate paying extra for seats up front. A long time AA Gold Member, looking forward to more Delta flights."
Pros: "Frontline staff were nice."
Cons: "Our flight was canceled last minute. Instead of a direct flight to start vacation, we ended up with a five hour layover in Atlanta. And to top it all off, they tried to double charge us for a checked bag fee."
Cons: "Enternteiment and seats"
Cons: "More entertainment options"
Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "The boarding process, better seats, outdated entertainment system, & slow Baggage delivery ."
Pros: "Staff all nice"
Cons: "Maintenance service could be better manage so flight delays are avoided"
Pros: "It's like Air India the crew is old and cant serve the aircraft. Nothing I liked. Flight was very old. Waste if money."
Cons: "Change the aircraft. Give us new aircraft or at least inform passengers this is old aircraft so we don't book. Premium economy price was very high. No service. Entertainment tv 4inc which doesn't work. Seats uncomfortable. It's better to travel will Emirates.i have no words why did I travel in BA."

Pros: "The crew was behaving nice."
Cons: "The website is horrible and full of bugs. In Flight tracker, the same flight returned two results, one in cancelled status and another in delayed status. I called british airways to update my personal details as their website didn't allow me to enter details, the staff messed up the details."
Cons: "Received a text that changed the flight departure to a later time. Missed the flight. Cost me baanaadditional"
Cons: "Free food"

Cons: "everything was good"
Pros: "I like that we were on time for departure"
Cons: "The speed boarding it was confusing,no one was there in the que until they called you to board then People starting to come up from the que that was already there. Speedy boarding should be exactly that."

Pros: "Excellent crews"

Cons: "Yes love the journey"
Cons: "They were late by 2 hrs"
Pros: "Highlight of the trip was BA's inflight safety video."
Cons: "I took a BA flight after a while. I had stopped flying BA in flight service and comfort was poor. I travel business class. Seats were dated (seat cushions), plane was dated, inflight entertainment systems dated (compared to most other airlines). Crew goofed up on food. I had a seat change which I informed the Sr Purser who came to take food order, his colleague who came to serve drinks. Still the server gave my food to the other passenger who had requested to change seats. Which resulted in no food for me. They clamoured some meal fro economy class and served so shabbily (only a pic can show how shabby it was - unfortunately I can't attach one here). In spite of all this the purser showed no remorse or offered no apology. I think I made a mistake in choosing BA, should have never come back to them."
Pros: "Everything was okay, except....."
Cons: "I was not happy with the ground staff in Mumbai, for not sending my baggage directly to Toronto, which was my last stop. I had to go through the whole process of checking in again in Montreal, where I could have missed my connecting flight to Toronto. I think your BA staff in Mumbai should be trained better, thanks."
Pros: "Economy plus was great. Economy was a little rough for me as seating was much less comfortable"
Pros: "polite crew"
Cons: "old plane, old entertainment systems, no updates"
Pros: "I like that they upgraded the seat. My other flights, however, were garbage. This particular one was pleasant."

Cons: "Food quality was mediocre, choices limited"
Cons: "Old aircraft, mediocre entertainment display, food was sub par compared to previous flights"
Pros: "The room on plane to Heathrow, wouldn’t know about way back considering I had to rebook onto Air India..."
Cons: "Just the fact that BA decided to hold us in UK for 6 hours to get their full pay and the fact that Heathrow ground crew had not enough de icing equipment and resources were at an all time poor response. Three hour lines for checking on status of bags, status of flights, unable to book a hotel through BA and got nothing from them. I didn’t enjoy freezing and staying there in Heathrow freezing... plus I didn’t fly this flight home due to fears of them not being able to handle a coating of snow versus what loads of snow we recieve in the states. I had to take Air India home to the US AND HATED IT... thank you BA and especially Heathrow Number one for lack of response and total irresponsibility..."
Cons: "The food was served twice on the flight, but was almost the same kind of menu."
Pros: "Being kept informed all the way from Gatwick to JFK Being able to depart and arrive on time Having very pleasant and attentive crew."
Cons: "Liked everything."
Cons: "Went through vayama, for this booking. Arrived for a 1:45 pm flight, which I had paperwork for. Jay Informed me, that a flight change to an am flight was emailed to me in December! No follow up email....say a week before?! Like all the other booking sites I use. Spent another night, in Ediinburgh, plus much money for new tickets. Two airport layovers. Will never go through this site again, rate it poorly and not recommend. Thanks, Vickie Varney"
Cons: "could not even get water to drink without purchasing"
Pros: "Staff (cabin crew Tony, in particular). Hand luggage allowance. Finally, food and water on a BA flight (unlike connecting EDI to LHR flight)."
Cons: "Method of boarding, with a mass of economy passengers boarding st once at the end. I NEVER get my preferred seat (= window), and object to being charged extra to select a seat (unlike other airlines I use more frequently nowadays). Crowded economy section, with little legroom, passengers squashing bags at feet, etc."
Cons: "I am 6'3" and I cannot find sufficient leg room. The answer is paying additional for seats with extra leg room, is no answer at all. The answer is quit jamming more seats in to a ever shrinking cabin."
Pros: "Fold-down head rests"
Cons: "No tuck box"
Pros: "Service and food"
Cons: "British Airways misplaced our luggage for three days, and would give us no further information than "it will arrive soon." So, we were stuck near the local address we had provided in case they called for 2 full days. They refused to give us a more precise time as to when they would be delivered. Well, at one point they did say that they would be delivered at noon, but they weren't. Throughout the entire time waiting for the luggage to be delivered, there was no sense of urgency or concern on the part of British Airways. It seems missing luggage is just Business as Usual at British Airways."
Pros: "Entrees were OK"
Cons: "Not nearly enough snacks. They were pretty much out in business class half way through the flight"
Pros: "The boarding was very good and the crew was very nice"
Cons: "There certainly should have been a snack on this longer flight"
Pros: "Comfortable. Great flight attendants"
Pros: "Boarding was good and flight was on time. Crew were polite and attentive. Food was okay too."
Cons: "No leg room and as usual I had an uncomfortable 6 hours with my legs jammed against the seat in front. Having spent $900 on the flights I am not going to pay another $81 for the 'upgrade'. Also, even as a slim person, the seats are crammed together so we all knock elbows and I am disappointed that all the airlines continue to reduce space. Arrival at Logan, Boston was a nightmare...2 hours to get through passport control, customs and baggage pick up. Don't fly into Boston at 9pm Saturday night! I flew outbound with AerLingus and the leg room was better so I will look to fly with them next time."
Cons: "Bring more than 30mind sitting on the plane waiting for a slot to take off despite boarding on time"
Cons: "Has taken up mobility/special assistance while bookkong but didn't get any assistance after landing at London Heathrow airport. Entire transfer at Heathrow airport for catching up next flight to Phoenix, USA lot of struggle had done because of it."
Pros: "Staff are all great. No fuss and every thing on time."
Cons: "It's economy class and always cramped. Standards slipping in the toilets a little. Seats are getting worn. The entertainment choice could be better. Food quality has also gone down"
Cons: "They loaded us on the plane only to inform us that we'd be in que for an hour+... not acceptable. They should have delayed loading."
Pros: "The flight was not very full, so we could spread out. Normally I really like British Airways, but the lack of AC was difficult."
Cons: "The air conditioning did not work and it was very warm, 77 degrees at least, the whole flight. It made it very uncomfortable. They said something was broken."
Pros: "Staff was very professional and courteous. No much waiting time for check in. Separate area for security clearance for British Airways passengers was very helpful and noteworthy."
Cons: "Carry on baggage at Mumbai Airport shown different dimensions than traveling from London. No proper communications for delayed flight and boarding was not organized. In flight food from Mumbai - London route was very much unsatisfactory."
Pros: "Service onboard is always pleasant."
Cons: "Not a fan of British Airways business seats. It feels narrow, crowded (i counted 8 people per row?) and not private. You get much better seats on other airlines without having to pay first prices. Boarding was confusing for people that don't know that Club World means business. And food was bland."
Cons: "I bought an extra piece of laugagge and I had problems on both check in processes because I wasn't shown on the system."
Cons: "It was very warm on the plane. No air jets available. Steward said the plane was having an issue with air quality. I have asthma and warm conditions with out air flow made this flight very uncomfortable for me. There was a passenger in from of me that was getting overheated and nauseous."
Pros: "The service was great!"
Cons: "Leg room. I'm very tall."
Pros: "Great service and comfortable; well sanitized."
Cons: "TV screens for movies and shows."
Pros: "1st class flight attendant sat through the entire flight (except for offering drinks and food early in flight). There were passengers NOT wearing masks through the flight but she wouldn't know that since she never left her seat"
Cons: "just about everyting"
Pros: "Excellent plane from comfort to entertainment."
Pros: "Flight was so smooth"
Pros: "empty plane awesome"
Pros: "The crew was nice"
Cons: "There was maintenance happening on the plane after everyone boarded. It was a long wait on the plane and it could have been better if that was done before boarding."
Pros: "We landed Friendly crew"
Cons: "Tray table broken Entire flight too cramped. Grateful I didn’t have the last seat in the back across from the lav. can you squ3eze any more seats into that aircraft?!"
Pros: "We finally got to Madison"
Cons: "There were 5 delays, with no explanations given. When the plane finally took off, after the 5 delays, it made it to Madison and sat on the runway for another hour because there was only one gate operating. In addition, when the plane was in Charlotte we were told that the cleaning crew was working on it, and when we boarded the plane was filthy; trash on the seats, on the floor, and in the pouches. American should be really embarrassed at how far it has fallen."
Pros: "Crew was very nice and plane was clean."
Cons: "I was exhausted and wanted to sleep on my late night flight but my seat did not recline (broken)"
Pros: "the crew was great, the food was okay, the movie selection was awesome, overall really happy with the flight."
Cons: "as far as a seat in coach goes, you're getting a pretty good deal. obviously flying 14 hours across the pacific is pretty rough and we would all like to fly first class, but as far as coach goes, I cant complain. only downside was that I had an exit seat, so tons of leg room, but couldn't use the entertainment while in taxi, takeoff and landing, where I could've squeezed another movie in, but its a safety thing and a fair trade for the extra room."
Pros: "The seat although with limited leg room, was comfortable."
Cons: "The desk agent at the airport was awful and made my experience unpleasant. And already stressful travel was made much worse."
Pros: "My seat"
Cons: "We made thru customs and rescreening and still 18 minutes early. The gate agent literally closed the gate right I front of us. Argued that they closed the flight. AA closed the gate 8 minutes above the minimum 10 minute gate close requirement. We missed our flight and there was no announcement."
Pros: "Fast and professional"
Cons: "Seats are really small, the A/C doesn’t work very well, very uncomfortable seats"
Cons: "Offered entertainment"
Pros: "The seats were decent for a domestic flight. Everything was timely."
Cons: "More food. Better entertainment."
Pros: "I got there"
Cons: "Being on time for once"
Cons: "Because our first flight was delayed over 4 hours we missed our connection and had to be re-booked on the only other flight that still had seats that day. We had previously booked and paid for Main Cabin extra seats in the second row that included extra leg room and free drinks. We ended in an airplane with two exit rows, one near the front and the other near the back. Our seats were right behind the rear exit row in the back of the plane. The seats did not recline and there was limited leg look because the exit row seats were aligned differently due to the crew seat next to the door. Also, the bathroom was right in front of the row in front of us and so it was busy, noisy and smelled. Obviously we didn't get our free drinks either. Now I'm having to fight with American trying to get a refund of the money we spent for the Main Cabin extra fees. The fun never stops. I will never fly American again."
Cons: "Another delay on second segment of cross country flight — this time for maintenance issues that were never fully explained. took off an hour late from DFW."
Pros: "Early arrival, plane not crowded"
Cons: "Onboard wifi not working so no inflight entertainment"
Pros: "The food was pretty good."
Cons: "They had no accommodations for our baby, and didn’t let us board first. It was an old plane with basic entertainment, TVs above the middle row and not all do them worked. It was particularly freezing on board. Some of the crew was nice but overall not very friendly or welcoming."
Cons: "We couldn't go there yet. I'm so sad and mad"
Pros: "Although boarding took a very long time because the flight was full, the flight was smooth. The touchdown was awesome."
Cons: "I can't comment on food. I didn't get any."
Pros: "Great passengers and crew"
Cons: "Tight not comfortable"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "No power outlets our video screens at seats. No food served on 4 hour flight."
Pros: "very friendly crews , nice entertainment selections and very reasonable fare. I enjoyed very clean and neat environment. I will fly again with this one."
Pros: "We landed 8 minutes early although we left 20 min late"
Cons: "No food, no entertainment on a small plane"
Cons: "I arrived at HNL nearly 2 hours before my flight. The check-in procedures at HNL were very poor. There were not enough operating machines to help passengers check-in. In fact, there appeared to be more non-functioning machines .than working ones which created a huge backlog of passengers. We then had to wait in another long line to have our bagged checked and boarded. This was one of the worse situations I've seen in a very long time."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for nearly 5 hours. There was no accommodations for the delay, except for apologies. Very limited snacks were provided, but this huge delay cut into our reservations and vacation in our resort."
Pros: "Arrived very early"
Cons: "Not much offered on domestic flights."
Pros: "Snacks, meals, movies"
Cons: "Too squishy Flight attendant didn't give us a card to fill out for customs. She just walked right by quickly without asking."
Cons: "Gate was changed, then flight delayed, then maintenance was required on plane further delaying, then once arriving on an already warm plane, another flight made it to our gate first so we had to sit for over 30mins on an un-air conditioned pressure cooker. It was 80 degrees outside but much hotter inside the plane. Quite miserable. Overall it was over 2 1/2 hour delay."
Cons: "Delayed like 5 times, finally canceled. Rerouted thru additional stops than bought."
Pros: "Flight on time."
Cons: "Food is horrible Change seats without notice"
Pros: "Great service and convenient flight."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome!"
Cons: "Connected from Cabo through Phoenix... seems that AA has really done a great job with passengers, but luggage is a whole other story, waited over an hour in Phoenix for luggage to come out, of course it didn't make the connection (had to clear customs in Phoenix)"
Pros: "In seat entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding sequence"
Cons: "Missed flight at london. Had to go to abu dhabi and Hyderabad. Very bad service"
Pros: "Nothing special. Horrible food (the worst in years). Cabin crew try to manage but a refurbished plane doesn't justify more than double for a substandard bussines class."
Pros: "Good service and friendly crew; efficient boarding process."
Cons: "Seating is extremely cramped for a transatlantic flight, very uncomfortable. I have been flying to Ireland for many years and this plane was possibly the worst."
Pros: "I messed up royally, as a result, I missed my flight to Miami. However, they were able to put me on the available flight without the extra cost to me. Thanks a lot."
Pros: "Same as above."
Cons: "Same as above"
Cons: "20 min delay at Dallas International"
Pros: "AM staff was very helpful and pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit confusing and crowded. Thankful you had a great intercom system and staff spoke clearly with easy to follow instructions."
Cons: "I took a flight in 2016 from Newark New Jersey four times and I only went to Florence South Carolina one time. I ended up in Myrtle Beach South Carolina, another time in Columbia South Carolina and the last time in Charlotte North Carolina. Each time I departed I had to pay to come back to Florence South Carolina."
