Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "Everything and being on time and not loosing all my luggage"
Pros: "The cabin crew was very attentive throughout the long flight, offering water and orange juice often. Good selection of movies was available."
Cons: "Can't think of anything, everything was very good."
Pros: "Everything was very good and comfortable. I really enjoyed my journey. Thanks."
Cons: "I bought my seat assignment in advance, and they did not give me this seat on the plane. Before boarding, I asked at the gate if my new seat was a window--which is what I paid for--and they confirmed yes, my new seat was a window. Turns out, it was not, it was a middle seat. I asked a flight attendant to relocate me to a window seat, which she kindly did, however this seat was quite uncomfortable as I was seated next to a large gentleman who probably should have been required to purchase two seats. Overall, there were two issues with Qatar Airways during this trip: they did not give me the seat I had requested and paid for, and then lied when I asked if my new seat was a window."
Pros: "From Doha to lax my assigned seat was 20K and some Isidore changed it before I arrived to Doha. Then I called in to get another window seat and likely got 29K. When entering the aircraft another moron changed to to 38E. I’m so definitely getting my refund for this customer service/ flight !"
Cons: "Take a while guess"
Pros: "Attentive and efficient"
Pros: "Because I was in the bulkhead seat - it was good."
Cons: "My first flight arrived 30 min late which meant that my 50-minute layover was tight. But instead of holding the next plane for us, they forced us to re-book on a flight leaving 14 hours later! I was not ok with this so I pushed the issue and they put me on the flight leaving 6hrs later. :-((((("
Pros: "Qatar Airlines treats you very nicely and doesn’t try to charge for little extras. They include the nice extras as part of your travel experience with them. I highly recommend Qatar!"
Cons: "Delayed by 1 hout"
Cons: "The boarding process was ridiculous. The staff delayed boarding of zone 2 passengers until ALL zone 1 passengers could be located and boarded which could easily have delayed takeoff. They went so far as to page missing zone 1 pax several times and asked people sitting on gate area which zone they"
Cons: "Lights did not work, so diner was guessing whats was in the tray"
Pros: "The crew were great and served food timely. The seats were also comfortable and we traveled with infant. The crew was super supportive for parents with infant."
Cons: "dont falsely claim that you have wifi if you cannot connect to satellite. The ground staffs needs training on behavior and how to treat infants."
Pros: "Entertainment system, crew responsiveness"
Cons: "Quality of main dish (lamb with rice). Portion of lamb is very small."
Pros: "It is so far a cut above the American carriers. There’s no way to compare them, because Qatar Airways is so far superior. The seats are far more comfortable and larger, the amount of legroom is far superior, you have much more personal space, and the craft is cleaner. Flight Attendants are fantastic! They provide excellent personal care, and are there for everything. They are supremely polite and courteous, and bring things in mediately. Very often anticipating your needs. This is what flying used to be like on United and American. But those people have completely forgotten what service is. Qatar is a 5 star airline. United and American, to my view, are 2 star at best."
Pros: "Very comfortable flight and helpful crew"
Cons: "Display showed TV news, not boarding Info. Boarding Zones were announced only once, if you missed it stuck in security you have no way of finding out."

Pros: "Good service!! Good food!! Great staff!!"
Cons: "No HE"
Pros: "Excellent service. Excellent quality of food."

Pros: "excellent service always a pleasure to fly with QATAR Airways"
Cons: "Luggage checking is very poor, the person on checking ask me to remove my shawal, i said to him it is insult to me , i never forget it , never plan to travel on Qatar airways"
Cons: "The flight from Sao Paulo to Doha was canceled which delayed our travel by 24 hrs. With the baggage being mis-labeled from Rio we almost lost our bags. the crew was not communicative and the entire experience terribly stressful."

Cons: "The food was not that great, I asked for non veg Hindu , it was very bland and tasted like fake chicken!"
Pros: "***You're asking me about a flight that hasn't happened yet. I'm rating my flight FROM LOS ANGELES TO DOHA, 10/23/2016, here: Flight attendants were very good, helpful, gracious. For a long flight the restrooms stayed clean."
Cons: "The food was over cooked, and lacked freshness. I had to have the same meal twice because they ran out of the omelettes. Next time I will try Emirates."
Pros: "Food, service, staff at the counter"
Cons: "Cant think of any"
Cons: "Arrival in Johannesburg was a nightmare due to queues at immigration - I nearly missed my connecting flight. This was not the fault of Quatar airlines but needs to be taken up with the authorities at OT Airport in Johannesburg"

Pros: "Entertainment, punctuality, helpful crew"
Pros: "Food is amazing, planes are good."

I was ask to go to another person who issued me check in baggage sticker and told me to hand over your baggage to a person inside. At last he mentioned to not put any valuables in that bag. My carry on bag was just 1lb extra and the first person could have told me right away and I would have thrown away chocolates and brought down the weight to permissible limit. In general passenger do carry valuable stuff in carry on bag. I had to follow whatever I was told."
Cons: "A bit too small the seats"
Pros: "I didnt go because the name in ticket was for person i book for him last time and i couldnt change the name with my name"
Pros: "Easy booking on line"
Cons: "The gate was changed in Dubai without informing the passengers whom waiting on the original gate printed on the boarding pass. And charged me no show fees and delayed for an extra 12 hrs. I have the evidence of you need them."
Pros: "Latam could not issue a boarding pass at Santiago. This led to long waiting at Brazilian immigration checkpoint. Not having a Visa kept me.from entering the immigration and security wont let me in without a boarding pass. security supervisor had to contact Emirates ground staff who escorted me."
Pros: "In general, everything as expected, some crew members were even extra nice."
Cons: "When checking in, they were quite slow and they didn't seem like they wanted to be helpful. Some crew members were not as helpful as when we were going to Brazil, and even the way they communicated the rules was not always very nice, but not rude either."
Pros: "Flight crew were excellent."

Pros: "The flight was incredibly comfortable, and Emirates reputation is well warranted. Service was impeccable and food was great. Seats were great, especially in business."
Cons: "Overall business class was great, however I didn’t like the placement of the remote at my left shoulder. I hit rabdom buttons a few times and it changed the channels and I would have to re-search for the movie I was watching. Everything else was absolutely perfect."
Pros: "The aircraft and flight crew was good. Entertainment selection is awesome."
Cons: "People traveling on this sector just don't know how to behave. It's amazing how the crew puts up with this. As the food service is going on, there were several people who wanted to move up and down the aisle disrupting the service several times. When the flight was taxiing after landing, people had already got up from their seats and were trying to take their bags. Despite many announcements, pax did not care. Hats off to the crew who patiently handled it."

Pros: "Just done all of that already !"
Cons: "Just done all of that already !"
Pros: "I loved the crew. Very helpful. Katarina was very helpfull"
Cons: "I sat next to the bathrooms"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, even in economy class. Very quiet engine noise. Extensive in-flight entertainment. Attentive crew."
Cons: "Boarding experience was cumbersome and overly complicated. After going through the whole security screening process to enter the departures area (I boarded in Singapore), the whole security process is performed again to get to the gate. Why do I and my carry-on luggage need to be checked twice? Once at the gate, all passengers are herded like sheep into an area that has insufficient seats for the number of passengers, so many are left to stand or sit on the floor. If the airline wants to use a plane that carries 500+ passengers, then use a gate that can accommodate that number."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable, food excellent, and entertainment system fantastic."
Cons: "A 7kg maximum carry on weight is super low."
Cons: "Did not get wheelchair assistance for my dad as requested."
Pros: "Everything from baggage handling to food on aeroplane to deplaning"

Pros: "I loved the layout of the plain and its size. It can fit a lot of people and you can definitely see that Emirates prides in their airline."
Cons: "We were sitting in row 36 (D,E,F,G). Everything was fine until we realized there was a leak in the plane. On take off and landing the A/C leaked all over our clothes and seats. When we reacted and stood up, the flight attendant screamed at us and told us to sit down. Afterwards, the flight attendant asked us what was wrong and she had realized that the AC had leaked on us. All she did was put towels on our seat and walked away. For at least 10 minutes I had to raise a towel to catch the water from dripping onto our heads during lift off and landing."
Pros: "Was upgraded to business class. Was able to change my special meal for a regular meal in business class. Thanks for the great service. I do feel the service on the 9hr dxb to cpt flight was above that of the 4hr dxb to blr flight."
Cons: "I wasn't allocated the seats that I had pre booked by paying money. very annoying"
Pros: "Crew onboard - do great on a very busy route Punctuality- on time departure & arrivals"
Cons: "- older planes - no amenities like pillows, blankets , kits - food is geared towards spicy, with no options for anyone who prefers a lighter continental option. - touchscreen did not work. Constantly having to tap hard is probably annoying to the person in front, also Worry that the TV heating up is probably not great for the head resting on the seat"
Pros: "The food and entertainment were good and the seats were relatively comfortable. And they provide headphones but..."
Cons: "The crew didn't warn us that they would be collecting the Emirates provided headphones during their final "prepare for landing" check of the cabin... so I was near the end of a movie and sans headphones! WTF? And because the fasten seat belt sign was on in preparation for landing, I couldn't fish through my carry on in the overhead compartment to find the ones I'd brought. Thats SUPER sh*tty to your customers. Just not ok!"
Pros: "The service was excellent. Plane comfort make the flight a pleasent one and less tiring."
Pros: "Entertainment and flight information was very good.Service also very good."
Pros: "As commented above."
Cons: "As commented above."
Cons: "This whole flight experience was a nightmare. I understand that there were very serious unforseen circumstances that day, with the Emirates flight from Trivandrum crash landing at the airport. As such the 4 hour delay that was announced was not a problem. The problem came after the airport resumed operations. We were told repeatedly that we would board any moment from 5:30pm onwards. As such, we did not go very far from the gate. We were even invited to go into the gate area no less than 3 times, before we were forced to leave. No one provided information. All we knew was that we were waiting for the crew to arrive. It took another SIX hours (in addition to the 4 hour delay) before we actually boarded. If we had even slightly better information, we could have at least found a comfortable chair a ways away from the gate and gotten a few hours of sleep. But it felt as if the ground staff constantly toyed with us, making us stay within a close radius of the gate but not providing any accurate or reliable information. I have come to expect the best from Emirates. But their actions were pitiful on this day."
Pros: "plain was big and clean entertainment was excellent"
Cons: "they lost 2 pieces of my luggage one of them was a wheelchair and there was a delay in takeoff"

Cons: "Overall the trip was good except in the Dubai airport. The people were not friendly and was not responding properly."

Cons: "Not to have 2 distressed cats on board meowing non stop for 10 hours."
Cons: "J’ai eu à payer un bagage supplémentaire sur internet à 160 euros. Mon compte a été débité et à l’aéroport de Dakar les agents au comptoir me disent qu’ils ne retrouvaient pas le payement du troisième bagage. J’ai été obligé de repayer le bagage comptant à 190€"
Pros: "The seats were bigger across the shoulder area and had more padding than some other budget airlines."
Cons: "Wish there was more elbow room in the seat. I am a big guy and I was having to squish myself so as to not interfere with my neighbor"

Pros: "The seat was very comfortable."
Cons: "My boyfriend and I were required to gate check our carry-on luggage which required us to go through customs in Paris to get to our bag and re-enter security for our connecting international flight. I am unsure why this was the case as other passengers brought the same size luggage. Very upsetting."
Pros: "Incredible staff. Super polite"
Cons: "The craft is a bit old. Harsh landing."
Cons: "Plane is old and entertainment facilities are no longer appropriate"
Pros: "The crew was nice and the seat comfortable."

Cons: "I have never been in a situation were a flight has been delayed due to the co-pilot suffering a knee injury prior to take off. A request for a doctor on board after an hour or so and then having to leave the plane and then re-board after about 40 minutes was quite bizarre."
Pros: "Food was ok."

Pros: "The crew was very gentile."
Cons: "No enterteinment on the plane."
Pros: "It was only 2 hours"

Pros: "Great service and food."
Cons: "Tv screen is resolution is to low. Hard to see details."
Cons: "I didn’t have time to make it through customs. Missed my flight"

Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1h30min, so we arrived very late"
Cons: "The food was the worst airline food I have ever been served. I could not eat it. This is very disappointing for an airline like AirFrance which usually serves very good meals."
Pros: "The free glass of red wine when the plane finally took off."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. We were told that it was just a half an hour delay by the man that was informing us of the delay and then we were then told by a woman that it was going to be over an hour. We weren’t told any specifics of why the plane was delayed, other than: “ the engineers are looking at the issue now”. We received messages saying that the flight was cancelled but then we were told to ignore that. We were told that we would have an update every 10-15 minutes but by the time we had the next update was 1 hours later, we were told that the plane will depart at 15:50- which we did. But we also sat on the plane for an extra 2 hours or maybe even more (couldn’t bare watching the time at this point) because the man that was supposed to push the plane backwards in order to reverse the plane didn’t turn up so we then had to wait for all of the other planes to take off before we could. Eventually the plane set off at 18:20 and I got in France 19:30-20:00 ish?"
Pros: "I like fly attendant who served us meal"
Cons: "I didn’t like that space between each seat is small"
Pros: "The cabin crew were excellent"
Cons: "We were transported to the plane which was quite some distance to the plane via bus after climbing down steep stairs from the departure gate area. Then we had to climb steep steps in extremely hot weather. We were then delayed for a hour in the plane in very hot conditions as the plane had its air conditioning off and the ground air conditioning was not put on. We were swearing in the heat for an hour!! We arrived at our destination and hour and half late!!"
Pros: "The flight had a delayed of 2 hours due a system issue, but the flight was comfortable, and the airplane was clean."
Cons: "I didn't like the check in, the personnel there were not so friendly and had discrepancies. We were a group of 6, and 2 of us were able to drop the bag in the check in. But the others were told that needed to wait 30 mins."
Pros: "The crew and flight was faultless"
Cons: "We were not advised of a flight number change or checking in location change. This could have resulted in us missing our flight."

Cons: "Nothing particular"
Pros: "Cabin crew very friendly and caring."
Cons: "Airport services and lounge are OK."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Window pane was broken on my side and I couldn't shut it down. As it was a day flight the sun heated my skin badly"

Pros: "Option to upgrade seat which I didn't take but might for outbound red eye flight in future."
Cons: "Faulty toilet meaning longer queues for the loo. Crew were a bit haphazard in serving food and my row was missed out for coffee after dinner."
Pros: "We were on a 9 hour flight which is pretty exhausting on its own. However, Air France provided you with a pillow and blanket, as well as headphones, so that you can make the best of the long trip."
Cons: "The chairs, for whatever reason, after just not that comfortable. Too squishy and they make noise when you adjust your position. I fidget a lot on flights so I felt like I was making a lot of noise. Also the plane didn't have cold air, do you get toasty pretty quick."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable with good recline. Food was good, but not excellent."
Cons: "They forgot the snack/breakfast service for the front right section of economy then had to rush it. Overall, the service was good, but some things just seemed off. An attendant call was never answered, etc."

Cons: "The seats were terrible, the entertainment units were poor and staff was very reluctant to give proper service."
Cons: "Too crowded"
Cons: "Bording far away, got my cabin luggage and everyone elses into the cellar because ¨it didn´t fit in the plane¨. There was plenty of room, I had breakable stuff in my luggage, didn´t get the chance to choose. No entertainment AT ALL. Confort: no leg space at all. Not an AirFrance plane, subcontracted. Lousy food."
Pros: "Entertainment center is brand new and Cleanliness Crew was ok And yeah there's wine (that way you can get plastered and ignore the uncomfortable seats)"
Cons: "Checking in was ridiculous. They're charging for literally EVERYTHING now. On economy class you have many options: - Normal (free!) "ergonomic" seats: uncomfortable, narrow, really close to the one in front of you. - Normal (exit row): just give up. There's like 6 of these and they're taken immediately. - Normal (middle of the plane): are you kidding me? These are NORMAL seats and you charge an extra €30? - Normal (2 seats per row!): what a bargain. Same crappy seats, but two people instead of three! This is really worth my money. - Upgrade to business! Why are you so poor! AF food went from being the best in international flights to disgusting microwave food (especially vegetarian)."
Cons: "Disorganised boarding with people allowed to bring on multiple and oversize bags that by the airlines own admission delayed departure"
Cons: "Seats are terrible. Crew didn't ask if I wanted to drink anything with the meal. Seemed like a budget flight."
Pros: "Nothing. I was offloaded minutes before boarding by BA without any explanations. The staff was not helpful in any way. BA is suggesting either non recept of payment or credit card fraud. Both reasons are totally bogus."

Pros: "Seats and crew great boarding was a nightmare"
Cons: "Better boarding patrol"
Cons: "On time departure"

Cons: "One overhead speaker was crackling and not sure if it worked quite right, couldn’t hear announcements very well."

Cons: "delay taking off and landing"
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: "We had two seats alone on the side, in row 51(!), with plenty of room and easy access (but not too close) to the loo. The Boeing 747 has aged well and was a bit more comfortable than the 787 Dreamliner we took over to Europe."
Cons: "Only downside was the clunky seatback entertainment screen, which probably looked bad 20 years ago when they put it in."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "Pilot was informing us about the reason for slight delay. Can not comment on food or entertainment ."
Cons: "British Airways introduced boarding by groups Inspite of my plea for my husband who recently undergone heart surgery he had to stand and queu until our group number was allowed to enter the plane. We have been told very firmly by taciturn lady at Fumicino Rome that this are new rules nad they are to be obeyed! compassion is not forte in our experience of British Airways."

Cons: "outdated inflight entertainment system generally worn and old plane"

Pros: "The boarding process was smooth."
Cons: "The seat in the so-called business class was too narrow even for a very slim person. The middle seat was too awful!"
Cons: "We nearly missed the plane due to how closely our flights were scheduled. Then our luggage did not arrive with us our plane. We didnt have time to stop for a snack or water so a small something would have been helpful."
Pros: "The crew were amazing, friendly, attentive and quick at everything they did"
Cons: "The entertainment screens were a little old and battered - scratched and all, which meant a reduced viewing experience"
Cons: "This is by far the worst business class experience ever. Really bad. Never seen business seat so tight. 2x4x2 configuration in business is just not acceptable."
Pros: "Ground staff and crew excellent Boarding was confusing and not announced"
Cons: "The breakfast was kind of gnarly - the eggs were oversalted and slimy, like worse than the usual airplane meal"
Cons: "The only complaint I have is our bags getting lost twice. I’m very understanding that these things happen. But for it to happen twice seems like people might be careless to the problem."
Pros: "Good service ...very convenient... reliability..... but please pleaes start using new aircraft’s I have been flying Ba 118 to London for 12 years ..... I need to update your aircraft’s .... when I do Lhr - NYE the aircraft’s are much better.... all my business friends have now shifted to Emirates because of the service and aircraft’s..... I keep flying BA because of the convenience of the direct flight and loyalty I have for the airline..... but we deserve better aircraft’s....."
Pros: "Good friendly service. Flights were on time."
Cons: "Food, especially breakfast is atrocious. Stupid to have to go through security again at Heathrow when you are transferring"
Pros: "Food was nice"
Cons: "Poor screen quality, ok selection of movies compared to other airlines, poor selection of audio"
Cons: "BA pulled a fast one on the passengers by first gradually increasing the projected delay, up to 3.5 hours, and then last minute changing the flight status from "delayed by 3.5 hours" to "on time, gate open". They did this without making any announcements on the loudspeaker, or sending any notifications to the passengers. Whoever didn't see the status change on a screen would have missed the flight. The crew must have recognized this (after half of the plane didn't show up), and just decided to wait some more, so our "on time" flight was eventually delayed by 1.5 hours only because the airline couldn't shepherd the passengers together when they were ready to leave."
Cons: "definitely a significant downgrade from my first flight from dallas to london. this flight from london to bangalore was outdated, with old entertainment systems, no usb connection, no snacks available. also we were shuttled from the boarding area on a crowded bus to the plan and had to climb several stairs with our heavy handbaggage up to enter the plane. crew was ok, nothing special. i've traveled british airways quite a few times from the USA via London to India and always notice the downgrade on the flight to India."
Cons: "The ground crew was very curt and non helpful. Apparently there was a rule that laptops had to be in the checked baggage. The ground crew could have been more courteous with passengers for whom this was a great inconvenience. In my specific case, the person checking me in labelled my bad "Long Stay" instead of "Priority" because they misread the instructions on the computer. The person would not listen to me and would not re-check his potential error....I fly British Airways all the time and that did not seem to make a difference in his demeanor"
Cons: "Very big delay!!!"
Pros: "The seats in "business class" are adequate but other airlines are nicer and newer. The food was good though."
Cons: "The way the seats were set up was really weird. I actually was flying backwards."
Pros: "The crew snd boarding"
Cons: "There were engine problems and the flight was delay by 2:20 and lost my train connection"

Cons: "Jfk terminal 7 is the WORST!"
Pros: "A lot of space for legs"
Cons: "Completely messed up departure time, poor maintenance and old aircraft. Grumpy service"
Pros: "The food was good and the flight attendants were attentive, especially considering the number of passengers. Overall, British Airways does a much better job than most American airlines."

Pros: "Boarded quickly and on time"
Cons: "Baggage didn't make the connection. No free food or drinks"
Cons: "Food wasn't great."
Pros: "The crew were exceptionally nicer ery"
Cons: "Everything was pleasant"
Pros: "Everything was okay, but before boarding the British Airways crew pulled us aside and told us that they cannot allow two carry on bags ( one carry on suitcase and one laptop backpack). That's insane. We had to wait forever to get the bags checked in and make it back to the gate. We didn't feel like valued customers and never going to fly British Airways again."
Pros: "same as newark-london sector."
Cons: "same experience as in newark- london sector"
Pros: "Aer Lengus is great. Complete contrast with the trip from the US to Heathrow with BA-D. That leg was horrible, one of top two worst over my 30+?years of traveling internationally Viva Aer Lengus comfort and customer relations, what a difference with BA-Disastrous customer support in Heathrow"
Cons: "Aer Lengus is great"
Pros: "Boarding process and crew were efficient."
Cons: "Seats were super-cramped, could not lean back to anything approaching a comfortable level, food was very ordinary, and the entertainment choices extremely limited."
Cons: "Wheelchair assistance was not provided to both the passengers , even though it was requested during reservation. Baggage was lost and did not make it to Bangalore"
Pros: "Food was decent as was entertainment. Pretty new aircraft and lavatories were clean throughout flight."
Cons: "Crew was ignorant yet again, seats had poor legroom blocked my media box."
Pros: "Easy checking by app."
Cons: "Confusion at checkin, at the airport. A lot of running around, very little done. Very disorganized."
Pros: "Crew was nice"

Cons: "No delays and not having someone taking up my seat"
Pros: "Crew on the plant was friendly."
Cons: "I think at least some small food should be offer even tho it wasn’t dinner time."

Cons: "Wifi was unreliable."
Pros: "So frendly"
Pros: "The crew was great. The seat was adequate but NOT comfortable. The request/requirement for only the wheelie bags to be in the overhead and everything else to be under the seat was EXCELLENT. Thank you for organizing the amount of “stuff” people carry on to the plane."
Cons: "I needed a little back support pillow..."
Pros: "The free entertainment was great! Left on time and arrive time. No lost bags and no incidents."
Cons: "Everything was great! No complaints. We flew basic economy so there were no frills and sat in row 26. The flight was safe and"
Pros: "Every thing! Healthier food needed"

Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Flight departure was on time."
Cons: "The food. Same sandwich the last 4 years."
Pros: "Entire flight crew was friendly and helpful!"
Pros: "The crew was professional as always. My flight was delayed due to a storm near the Caribbean, which is fine because I would rather fly safe and arrive alive. My snack was tea and pretzels, which is fine because I enjoyed The Greatest Showman with sexy Hugh Jackman."
Cons: "I don't blame the airline for unruly passengers or weather conditions. When traveling you have to leave room for error or unforeseen circumstances. If you don't like the airline or passengers you can charter a private jet :)"
Pros: "We got home early"
Cons: "The sandwich was auwful"
Pros: "Very attentive.. good service.."
Cons: "Seats to tight.."
Pros: "Very very helpful I will fly AA every time I can"
Pros: "Again, we had heard stories of kids being separated from adults, but all family was together. Many entertainment options and friendly staff. Also, when I asked at gate, the attendant allowed our family with 3 kids ages 5, 7, 9 to board with one of the earlier groups. That helped a lot as it took the kids a little longer to get all set and we were not hurried."
Cons: "Plane had not been cleaned"
Cons: "given exit rows. seats dont recline. No TV, no wifi, no entertainment. 9 hr flight at night...horrible"

Pros: "The onboard entertainment has definitely improved. Nice to see how organize is the boarding process when compare to other local airlines."
Cons: "I was seating in the front of the plane were the seating should be better. The seat reclined minimum. Also, had the had luck to travel next to an amazing mother who was traveling with two small kinds and a dog. Brave woman but nasty flight for me. Need to improve the meals on the international flights. Too mediocre."
Pros: "The plane left on time"
Cons: "Attitude of personnel on plane Plane was old and in need of up grading No service, you have to ask for a cup of coffee and they give it to you as it is a favor Keep inventing reasons to make it more difficult to achieve any level. They invented a platinum """""Pro""" level that used to be Platinum and downgraded the platinum level so they provide less perks"
Cons: "1. Weather was bad and airlines knew it without sending out caution email or text messages early to passengers like Delta so that passengers can prepare for coming situation, either re routing flight or mental prepare for flight delay 2. Poor coordination - called to change flight and got confirmation via phone only found out in ticket counter that was not valid. 3. Luggage counter was bad, giving wrong picking luggage location caused two hour waiting in airport for nothing."
Cons: "My ticket was cancelled because of a misrepresentation made by an agent when I had to rebook the outgoing leg of this trip. I had to pay $670 for new ticket at the airport with no other options and very little help from the LatAm agents. I'll never book another ticket with this airline."
Cons: "Flight attendant called cops on passenger sitting next to me to be escorted off the plane for no reason!"
Pros: "Quick little trip from San Diego to Phoenix. Crew made the extra effort to keep the plane cool despite the 120 degree temps in Phoenix."
Cons: "I nearly missed my flight because I did not have a seat for a flight that I bought a ticket for at full price. Which, would lead one to believe that I would have a seat on said flight. However, coming to the gate an hour before boarding the personnel working gate the said he was having computer difficulties and could not get me a seat and it would be 10 min. I continued to return till boarding to find out I had no seat and I was on standby. Upon going to customer service they replied the airline oversold tickets and every airline does this as if to make this practice ok. Well being in sales myself and if I were to sell x amount of product to one customer ( or several) I better make sure I have it all there to deliver. People rely on you schedule wise. It nearly shot a meeting I had to make in the foot. Very disappointed with the airline and the way things were handled."
Cons: "Delayed flight due to crew."
Cons: "I never experienced the flight because I wasn't given a seat. The airline oversold the flight and I never got to go. I missed my once in a lifetime experience because the airline is greedy at my (and other people's) expense. I missed out on a priceless experience. Not only that, the bag that I checked did not make it off the flight so I remained in DC while my bag went to Medellin. I had to purchase new toiletries and had to make arrangements to get back to the airport. As of now, I do not plan on choosing American Airline nor LATAM for my future flights."
Pros: "Schedules were always on time, the price was the best"
Pros: "The gentleman at the departure desk was first rate. Polite and accommodating he was just what you would expect from an airline. Especially American Airlines. The crew was the same and I was happy to have decided to use AA."
Cons: "The departure was delayed approximately an hour."
Cons: "our flight was delayed, and no other options"
Cons: "Too many levels of passengers"
Pros: "My departing flight crew was very accommodating for my baby and I. They were very pleasant."

Pros: "The flight was on time. It was serviced well by very friendly flight attendants. I enjoyed it very much."
Pros: "Nice, comfortable planes."
Cons: "Food quality could be improved."
Pros: "We landed, eventually."
Cons: "The flight was late. Also, they only accept cash onboard for refreshments. That has the consequence of the crew getting on the PA system asking people for change, and scurrying around the cabin in a desperate shell game exchanging bills. It's 2016. Get with the program and accept credit cards."
Pros: "AM staff were helpful and pleasant when I asked questions."
