Pros: "Very friendly atmosphere at boarding gate & helpful crew on journey, plus surprisingly good food foe economy class made for positive feel to this trip. Add to it the fact I caught a movie I'd missed seeing at cinema plus even getting a few hours sleep, this was probably one of my better long haul flights in recent times."
Pros: "They are prompt and very fast at loading and unloading. Quite a bit better than any other airline I have used. Leg room on small airplanes was good in economy, but not as good on larger jet to USA. The servers offered me ice in my water bc I am American. I appreciated that so much since I'd spent the last 12 days in Europe where no one serves with ice!"
Pros: "No food was served. requested vegetarian food never came thru"

Cons: "Flight got delayed by more than an hour, so my layover was cut short and had to rush to catch my next flight"
Pros: "Finally an upgraded plane. The plane from Frankfurt to Mumbai was not the best. On business class - small washroom with the toilet lid collapsing on you. One of the washrooms also not functional. Liked the food and the service."
Cons: "Sink not functioning properly in business class."
Pros: "I like crew members service"
Cons: "Didn’t like seat was not comfortable plus some time smells bad in flight"
Pros: "The crew was nice about everything. On being asked at the airport to at least change my seat on the second leg flight the personnel did it without a fuss."
Cons: "Tthe first leg was overbooked and they wouldn't let me select a seat and I had to weather through a middle seat that I was not at all comfortable with The entertainment collection can be better specially Indian/Hindi movies"
Pros: "cleanliness, timely arrival and departure"
Cons: "poor service - surly crew bad food - havent been served worst food uncomfortable seats bad entertainment, sound distortions, small screens, limited selections and to top it all is the FRANKFURT AIRPORT - one of the worst transit points which makes you walk for miles and miles."
Pros: "The special meals ordered were good. the staff was courteous. Bags arrived on time."
Cons: "Seats towards the rear of plane were too narrow. When the front passenger reclined their seats they were in your face. This is bad design. Also, at Frankfurt we had to wait over an hour for the plane to get de-iced. Why was this process not started early, as the departure time was known."
Cons: "Cramped space in economy class."
Cons: "Had requested vegetarian and was served vegan instead"
Pros: "Very nice staff at the gate and awesome media selection on the plane."
Pros: "Only best part of Lufthansa is newer planes. Smooth rides. However, I don't think they can count on their customers base only on one positive for long run."
Cons: "Flights were late and boarding was caios, no one had any clue what to do. Blankets were filthy. Entertainment had limited choice. Considering I took six flights in this month, I will let it slide that they ran out of New movies. Worst part was food. Obviously, there is no quality consideration when they decide menu. Check Emirates or other similar fare bracket airlines to understand the gravity of Lufthansa food problem. If one reason I had to choose to drop Lufthansa from my future consideration then that would be worst food and drinks. I would strongly recommend that they should assign people who need additional time to board at the back of the plane. It will help them to go back of the plane faster and avoid gridlock in the middle. Another advantage is it will help other passengers leave plane faster at the end of the ride. Boarding process will be come significantly faster by filling the plane from back to front by loading passanger with children and who needs time at the first loading area at the back of the plane. Thanks"
Cons: "-flight delays-no information provided-no information on gate changes-"
Cons: "Lufthansa Ground staff was not equipped to handle flight cancellation! It took them 4.5 hrs after scheduled flight departure time between which they told us flight was cancelled and provided Hotel Accommodations. Very sad customer handling and service. Subsequent booking was a mess too!"

Cons: "Very poor ground staff at the check-in counter. Made me pay 2nd bag fee of $100 at the time of check-in, despite the airline rules allowing 2 free checked bags. The staff including the supervisor were so un-cooperative and rude. The supervisor snapped at me by saying that I was not doing the airline any favor by flying Lufthansa. At that point I just gave up and paid the totally unjust fee. Took me to a back room to pay the fees, where the credit card machine and even the printer wasn't working. ...... very bad experience EVER !!!"
Pros: "No ventilation on some terminals toilet economy class."

I called in and was never told that anything was wrong. I kept trying to check in online and got blocked at every trial... Cut a long story short, I showed up for my Lufthansa flight to only be told I didn't have the required visa for one of my layovers... I missed my flight, got no refund for it and got zero help in finding a solution to my problem. You could do better than that, Lufthansa."

I appreciate that delays happen but the lack of communication ragardinh altered boarding times didn't make the situation any easier"

Pros: "The staff were friendly and all smiles. Seats were comfortable and we had a quick, smooth flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam. The breakfast supplied was an egg and mayonnaise sandwich plus a drink, which seemed about right and very Dutch in character."
Cons: "It was rainy and necessary to walk outside to access the plane; the staff should give their customers a heads-up so that jackets can be donned. Additionally, the check-in queue seemed rather sluggish."
Pros: "Staff superb. They even surprised us with an exit row and a gift for my partners birthday! Amazing. Samantha and Dennis also took time to come and personally wish him a happy birthday.

Pros: "Spacious cabins, friendly service"
Pros: "Flight unpleasant. Ground staff in Marseiile great but gate crew didn't control carry on baggage and many of us could not use overhead bins because of passengers who stowed more than one and often oversized suitcases above, so we and many others had to place carry on suitcases under seat. Attendant on plane totally unhelpful and could have rearranged a few bags to make room but preferred to stay in back of plane and talk. To be fair, rest of flight was pleasant although late due in part to boarding issues."
Cons: "Carry on baggage issues and storage on plane. One aloof and unhelpful member of flight crew."
Pros: "captain was great."

Cons: "I may be wrong but these days, the staff curtsy and overall well coming approach is lacking! Just a smile and a few cheerful words can transform passengers’ mood greatly!! This becomes particularly important when one is traveling for > 9 hours back to back flights!! One can extra charge for it!!"
Cons: "Staff Curtsy and overall gestures!!"
Cons: "I not get to go my flight, I couldn't get reimbursement"
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "The time. The flight was late for 1 hour. I miss everything and also I get very late to our Airbnb and I was with my family and child"

Pros: "Food, service, comfort"
Cons: "I am not sure why this happened, but our daughter, travelling away from home for the first time, was targeted at every step of her journey. From the terminal in DCA to Cincinnati, to CDG. Delta/Air France clearly singled her out. i am outraged! I have traveled many, many times and have sent hundreds of students on nearly the same trip -- and none have had as rough a time as she had. They will be hearing from me."

I asked serval Air France employees for Croatia Air. None new that Air France was the CA carrier. Finally found one who bothered to look it up on her computer and low and behold, AF was the carrier!"
Pros: "You can't go wrong with delta when it comes to customer satisfation. It's the primary reason I'm okay with paying extra money for delta flights"

Lousy food."

Cons: "My entertainment system did not work for the whole 8 hours. Seats were uncomfortable. The lights above the seats broken."
Pros: "The flight crew was excellent in accommodating the passengers. One specific flight attendant was very patient in dealing with a continuously demanding passenger by being helpful and firm at the same time; a difficult combination of skills."
Cons: "The ground crew in CDG was very disappointing and unprofessional and very specifically in the luggage area. When I was told that my carry on luggage exceeded the allowed weight I argued that my luggage was weighed in Cairo and that it was less than the 12 Kg allowed weight. The Air France attendant then waved with annoyance to speak with her supervisor. When I approached her supervisor, who was speaking with another Air France employee, she looked annoyed and said just just to to booth #7 or 8 that handles excess luggage issues. My reaction is to avoid traveling through CDG in the future and I will focus on flying with Lufthansa."

Cons: "Enternteiment and seats"
Pros: "In flight entertainment was good, half of the cabin crew were super friendly, others a bit bored."
Cons: "Brand new A350 but very cramped seats, it felt very claustrophic. Flew out on a 747 and had a lot of space - wonderful aircraft, flew back on A350 and it felt like flying Ryanair for 7 hours! I am only 5 feet 7 and my knees were close to the seat in front, I am not fat but the tray table was touching my stomach. I dread to think how anyone ate the food if they are 15 stone or more, I guess the table rest on the stomach and the food has to be held on.. The food wasn't good, I asked for a vegetarian meal but got bland vegan food - no cheese or dairy even though those are vegetarian. Next time I will not order a special meal and just get the standard vege meal and risk that they have one for me. Flight crew were OK, some of the instructions about electronic devices were garbled and unclear, especially about the use of laptops."

Pros: "Very nice crew"
Cons: "The boarding process, better seats, outdated entertainment system, & slow Baggage delivery ."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled."
Cons: "More latest movies in the inflight movies"
Cons: "Loved the flight however wished the food selection was better in business call. On the way to Mumbai the option and choice was better and tasted good. I was not impressed with selection and taste it could have been better."
Cons: "The equipment was old and didn't seem to be well maintained. And they did not offer even a glass of water on a 3 and a half hour flight. Even water was on sale!"

Cons: "Check-in at Heathrow was too long, need more staff. Airport lounge was great."
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: "Wheel chair was provided. Guidance to check in to the flight."
Cons: "I paid extra charge for Seat 29C. It was not provided though requested several times. After a hot argument this was provided. Crew were not co-operative. Flight was delayed by three hours. Connecting flights missed. I reached my final destination by a delay of 24 hrs. Luggage came after 3 days. No wheel chair provided at LHR. I have been suffering from Back pain since several years, underwent surgery. I had to walk a larger distance at LHR to hotel and back to to catch flight. Very horrible journey I had ever experienced."
Pros: "Food, ."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 4hrs after a 5hr layover. Passengers where shifted from a warm departure area to a very cold area to wait for transportation to the plane. Overall confusion of the staff. The pane, a 747 seemed to be an earlier model plane that needed to be updated."
Pros: "Flight crew was friendly, the meals and entertainment were good"
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Service, generally"
Cons: "Noticeable lower standards on flights bound for India: poor quality seats and TV monitors."
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: "Full flight, but still excellent courteous service from all members of staff."

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: "It is difficult to get in and out of chair. I wish the chair handle would be moved up . Every time I needed to go to bathroom , I hurt myself."
Cons: "The food was served twice on the flight, but was almost the same kind of menu."
Pros: "It wasn’t unpleasant"
Cons: "M&S should be ashamed to put their name to this dreadful selection of food. EasyJet has a more varied selection for gluten intolerance. The boarding experience could not be more anachronistic - every gem and precious metal under the sun is given priority (emerald card??) and it is just about left unsaid that the final people allowed to board are the Plebs. What a dispiriting experience and one I now have to repeat after the demise of Monarch, who were so much better."
Cons: "The change of seats with the motove of keeping balance on the plane"
Pros: "Everything was on time."
Cons: "It is a very good flight i seen. The flight was timely. Landing was very good."
Pros: "Service and food"
Pros: "announcements made by the pilot about weather and the flying conditions and travel time were very good."
Cons: "the plane was delayed and the check-in person gave me a different time for when the plane would leave vs what was on the boards. i was lucky that i did not listen to her or i would have missed my flight."
Cons: "Having to take a bus to get to the aeroplane"
Pros: "Clean only immediately after boarding."
Cons: "1) Toilets too small 2) Toilets after first use by passengers, was not cleansed and toilet supplies like seat covers, etc not replenished 3) Not even enough toilets around."
Cons: "Flight was 1 hour 45 minutes delayed because the crew's bus broke down on the way to the airport. And when I was perilously close to missing my connection at Heathrow, in which I had to change terminals, I was given no assistance whatsoever. It was made very clear you were on your own. Thanks British Airways! But the cabin crew were very nice though."
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."
Cons: "smallest coach I have ever been in. very squished and I was next to my wife at 95 lb and a skinny young man who took no room at all. I am only 5'9" 170. But thats how the flights get so cheep"
Pros: "Fast and efficient"
Cons: "No drinks not even water without cost"
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."
Pros: "There was someone from BA who met me when I landed in London who gave me instructions for getting to Terminal 5. Without him, I never would have made it."
Cons: "The process of getting from Terminal 3 to Terminal 5 was tedious and time-comsuming. I barely made my connecting flight."
Pros: "Once on board everyone was accommodating and apologetic about long delay in Venice"
Cons: "Venice airport can't seem to handle amount of air traffic. Short staff. three hours to check in with short line. Not Enough buses to take everyone on plane which caused more delays instead of sending a few buses. Once on board staff was great"
Pros: "the crew were friendly and efficient"
Cons: "old plane uncomfortably seats no personal IFE"
Pros: "Arrived 30 min early."
Cons: "They need to stop selling the flights at full capacity"
Pros: "Fast food service"
Cons: "Very narrow seats in coach. If you’re sitting next to a larger person expect to be crunched."
Cons: "My seat back screen was inoperable. I had other stuff to do, so not a problem although I would have liked having music and movie options. Oh well... In other news, AA’s morning food options are incredibly lame. It’s almost as if they don’t want to sell any food. Finally, can come one tell me where to buy stock in those mediocre little Biscotti cookies they (and every other airline) pass out for free? Must be KILLING it!"
Cons: "6 hour delay"
Pros: "Staff was so kind and helpful."
Cons: "They ran out of a couple of the snacks, not a big problem but note worthy."
Cons: "Late boarding, WiFi didn’t work. Small seats. Why do I continue to fly you guys?"
Cons: "I am quite sure there was a booking error and no one was willing to make any accommodation. Should have been charlotte to boston. I ate the cost. Tried to reschedule with cheapo air and voila wrong again. That cost me another $50.00"
Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Cons: "Boarding gates"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Crampy space."
Pros: "A cheap option to upgrade to 1st was offered that ended up being a net 0 cost upgrade for me so I took it. Comfortable on an old (but oh so nice) aircraft."
Cons: "Arrived 30 minutes early to the airport but then had to sit at a remote pad so that we ended up being 5 minutes late to the gate. A short transfer was made even more difficult, and a massive waste if time and fuel sitting and waiting. Figure out your gates early and better, and move around if needed. At the very least, bring up some stairs and buses to get passengers to the terminal and then tow the aircraft in when you have a gate available."
Cons: "Canceled my flight"
Pros: "Boarding process was easy."
Cons: "This requires a list- 1. For a new plane, the seats were uncomfortable 2. The seats had no leg rests 3. It was an overnight flight, arriving before 6 am and all that was offered prior to landing was a mint...seriously, no coffee? I was in first class and expected a light breakfast but AT LEAST A CUP OF COFFEE. Never again will I pay for first class on this airline. AMERICAN AIRLINES SHOULD BE ASHAMED. 4. The crew was unwelcoming and unfriendly. Not acceptable when paying these prices."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "It was very hot inside the plane and dificult to sleep No breakfast when we arrived in Brazil In Lima, after the flight from Miami, the period for the connection to Brazil was very short. At the airport, when I inquired about attention to get through the security line, the answered was that we have to ask for permission to pass before the passagens that was waiting in queue."
Pros: "Crew; snacks are okay, but could be better."
Cons: "Coffee is always burnt; overhead compartments too small; too little space for legs."
Pros: "Voo pontual, atendimento da tripulação, serviço de bordo, qualidade da aeronave."
Cons: "no complaints"
Cons: "Equipment malfunction at 11 pm is always really nice."
Pros: "The only nice thing was the plane."
Cons: "There was terrible service. And we missed out connection because an empty plane was sitting at our gate. There is no way the airline did not know this plane was at our gate. They also did not play for our hotel to stay the night. Never flying American again. Not a single employee seems to know what's going on."
Cons: "Terrible plane. Old. No tv. No charge points"
Pros: "Staff did seem empathetic and offered substantial tips on how to find out about connecting flights. Also a promotional offer for the aa credit card had a sweetened points offer. I also liked the general structure of the plane made it easy to see if the lavatory was occupied or not."
Cons: "Plane pulled away from the gate knowing we were delayed (or so it seemed). Subsequent delays meant we were stuck on the plane and couldn't briefly disembark."
Pros: "unAnnounced gate change"
Cons: "Running in airport"
Cons: "2.5 hour delay going, 3.5 hour delay returning. All because their paperwork had not been submitted on time. Terrible organization."
Pros: "Crew was great, boarding was efficient"
Cons: "The planes are very old, for a transatlantic flight to have monitors showing one movie in the middle of the plane is ridiculous. Even my 2 hours Delta flight had personalized screens and entertainment on demand. Really disappointing especially on return as we flew 8 hours during daytime"
Pros: "My flight was delayed and redirected to a nervy airport. The staff at this airport was all on board and ready to assist everyone is getting the most current information and putting us a new connecting flights"
Cons: "The check in at LGA was not the smoothest. Most of the kiosk weren't working and was making it hard to check in"
Pros: "It was on time boarding and landing"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 hours waiting for a flight attendant"
Pros: "Broken down into more groups - ok I guess..."
Cons: "No way to know who was up next, who was in line for what number - should have corraling stations (some airlines have this) where you gather based on your number and can move out of the way for others. Getting onto the plan was awful - the aisle are SO TINY - I'm 5'6" tall and 140 lbs, trying to roll a small back through the aisle, and it was impossible not to hit 14 people. It's like you have to go to class on how to walk through the aisle and not be an idiot."
Pros: "Food was okay for airplane food"
Cons: "I was overlooked multiple times during beverage distribution and kept getting bumped in the head even though I did not rest my head outside the headrests. Makes it difficult to get some sleep on long flights."
Pros: "Surprising seat comfort in economy."
Pros: "Seats wer brand new leather on this plane"
Cons: "The lack of leg space didn't know it was that bad."
Pros: "Newly refurbished plane"
Cons: "Ran out of red wine"
Cons: "We didn't have hot beverage service due to turbslsnce and the attendant never came back to offer my 84 year old mother another choice"
Pros: "Aircraft 777-200. I've seated in row 14, wich have great confort for legs."
Pros: "Muy buen servicio"
Pros: "The smooth take off and landing beat Pilot and the flight crew ...... "FANTASTIC""
Pros: "Crew was excellent"
Cons: "Seats were rough and I didn't understand the process of selecting seating for the return trip, so my wife and I had to sit 10 rows apart a few days after we got married."
Pros: "I had a great experience overall. I don't give 5 stars because there is always room for improvement no matter how good your service is."
Cons: "Size of the snacks"
Cons: "It was BLAH!"
Pros: "Not much...we did leave on time"
Cons: "All most everything. The seats are too small. I felt like I was in a cattle car. The food was cheap and offered little in nutrition. The attendants seemed to be understaffed although one attendant tried hard to be courteous. The lavatories were reeking by the time we landed. Flying has become a chore. As a result of this experience I will look for other airlines in the future."
Pros: "They were very professional and very welcoming. Made my eleven hour flight feel short with the entertainment the airline provide and the delicious meals that were provided. Definitely will be flying again with American Airlines for my next flight."
Cons: "Can't complain. Pleased."
Cons: "Seat reassignment"
Cons: "Arrived twenty minutes late. AA refused to accept responsibility for this and compensate me, even though my transportation had departed without me as a result of their tardiness."
Pros: "Free Meal was a welcomed surprise. Very smooth flight."
Cons: "Except for one gentleman the rest were kind of surly flight attendants. No personal video system. Old plane."
Pros: "Thank you for the new, comfortable plane"
Cons: "No IFE on 6 hour flight."
Cons: "Fat constantly moving man next to me"
Cons: "When we got off the plane in LA from Sydney they told us our flight to Boston was cancelled, and the next avail option home was in 12 hours. We spent two hours with them and on the phone trying to work out different options to get home sooner, when they brought the flight back again, cancelled it again and then eventually brought it back. The customer service agent on the phone said the flight was on, while the agent on the ground said it was cancelled. They were all confused. Caused an unnecessary amount of stress and work. Would make me think twice about ever flying with American again"
Pros: "Fast shuttle to our hotel"
Pros: "O bom humor do comissário de bordo."
Cons: "Atraso (nos voos de ida e de volta) sem que tenham sido dadas explicações ou informações."
