Pros: "Very kind professional and accommodating crew"
Cons: "Because of a family illness I had to reschedule my flight 2 weeks before. Because the flight was booked through a secondary company, rebooking the outgoing flight ended upp: a) costing me as much as the whole original return flight; b) was no longer a 1 stop flight as I also had to stop in Frankfurt plus the company would not allow me to choose directly, I sent them details and then they booked what they could find; and c) I lost both the outgoing flight ( which was charged) and the return flight ( which was not changed) premium seat bookings both of which I had to pay for a second time. If I had booked directly with the airline this would have cost a transfer fee and I would not have lost the premium seat bookings. This was therefore a great expense and inconvenience. I will no longer book flights indirectly when using kayak. In future I will search using google flights and then go straight to the airline sites to book. Very disappointed. I never had this problem when booking with kayak before"

Delayed flight (as usual) .. 6.am D.T. should either mean 6.00 or 6.05 or 6.10 ... but not 6.30. 3. Very tight connection flights in Vienna, so a slight delay could mean missed connection. 4. Food"

Cons: "Paid 1,000$ and we got a standby ticket. How is this possible? Will not book through Kayak again."
Cons: "Difficulty getting to flight"

Would not accept our evidence of payment for the two bags. Finally accepted her mistake but Forced to pay 90€ For the extra bag. Ripoff!! Other airlines (Vueling, Air Europa) checked same bag as courtely, did not charge. First and last time flying Austrian."

Pros: "You guys have. Very professional crew !!"
Cons: "The customer service In Europe wasn’t helping out at all"
Pros: "The air crew service"
Cons: "1. No option to pay for a second luggage; the company website very unclear about the luggage policy; no contact information as well as no web payment service; days before my flight, spent a lot of time and efforts to know that I could pay for a second luggage at the airport on my departure; 2. Paid $120 or so for the second luggage!!!??? After decades flying Austrian I will try switching to your competitors."
Pros: "The outbound flight from Vienna to IAD had much better service. The return flight from IAD to Vienna, the crew didn't come back to refill water or ask to top up drinks. The food choices were more limited. The entertainment system on the flight needs a larger selection."
Cons: "I can not afford first class tickets..."
Cons: "We sat on the tarmac for 2 hours because a crew member did not have the proper paperwork. This is incompetence. The trip was long enough w/o adding another two hours due to poor planning. This was completely preventable."
Pros: "The crew were so kind!"
Pros: "The pilots are very skilled and keeps you informed about every single “bump” during the flight. Flight attendents are very nice, pleasant, polite and helpful."

Cons: "Long transit more than 12H without free accommodation nor meals"
Pros: "Even though I was very disappointed at what the Austrian airline did to me, the staff and crew and captains where professional and the flight was comfortable especially on Lufthansa. However, I missed the experience of enjoying the flight with the group of people that I joined on the way to Vienna and to Egypt."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that they cancelled my Austrian flight to a completely different company (Lufthansa). I paid extra money when I reserved the tickets in the USA to make sure I am on the same plane as the other three families that i wanted to be with as a group. They had reserved their tickets and I got the flight numbers and when I reserved my booking I paid extra to be on the same airplane as the rest of the group. My plan worked going to Vienna and to Cairo (although one of the planes were delayed 3 hours which ruined our stay in Vienna) but on the way back from Cairo to LA, I couldn't be with the group because I left 2 hours early and arrived in LA 2 hours late. I pleaded that I came with a group but they said I have a different booking so they couldn't honor keeping me on the same plane as the group. I am very disappointed and will avoid my future travel with Austrian airline"
Pros: "Plane left and arrived on time."
Cons: "Rude gate agent. Small seats, no leg room, very crowded together. Clearly a budget airline - should be marketed as such."
Cons: "The departing time is quite bad 4:20 in the morning"
Pros: "The aircraft was very clean. Very friendly crew."
Pros: "They had a yummy snack. And fresh veggies. With great coffee. And the host told us abou the history of a Vienna dessert."

Cons: "Ridiculously small seats and legroom."
Pros: "On time, smooth flight."
Cons: "Boarding area cramped, all classes and rows boarded at same time."
Cons: "I have the 'Economy Class' on the tickets. At check-in at the airport we wrote "economy light" on the boarding pass and want to pay for the first baggage. I check it on the original receipt I received by e-mail, there is ECONOMY CLASS and 1st baggage free of charge, another for a fee. So I do not understand and for two tickets I have paid 2 x 30 €."
Pros: "Great grew, great flight. Thank you!"
Cons: "I did my fligh because I was in the hospital I have send a mail to kayak and to the agent I have booked the flight with No one got back to me yet!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The female attendants were nice."
Cons: "The male attendants, who were on my side, were not very attentive. I had a small child with me and they didn't seem to realize the challenges associated with what I was doing. Also, my child's screen would not work most of the time, even though I told the attendants."
Cons: "The delay in take-off"
Cons: "Predictably, why I was expected to meet the tight schedule between planes squeezed by the 1st flight leaving one hour later than planned, my checked-in baggage apparently wasn't. So for me 35 minutes was more than enough to go through yet another passport checkpoint, security checkpoint, run like a headless chicken then travel by bus to the plane; for AU it wasn't enough to transfer my bag to the connecting flight."
Cons: "Thay did not let us in the plane because they changed the name order on the ticket"
Pros: "Baggage in Riga was available the moment we got to the carousel."
Cons: "Passport control in Vienna was completely disorganized. This is not an Austrian Air issue. Look to Disney World for how to line up large groups of people. Yes, I know Air Baltic is low fare. I have never paid for water on a flight. At least the WC was included in the fare."
Pros: "best blanket in any business class. should be sold on line."
Pros: "The entire experience was a joy. I was upgraded to business class and the difference was noticeable. I was comfortable and suffered no ill effects after. Much different that my trip home."
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like"
Pros: "Very good choice of Entertainment. Crew is very kind AND helpfull.Excelent service from the begining to the End."
Pros: "The air hostesses seem to be too tired. Seems like they really did not care much. There was someone who was using the skype in ipad long after we were requested to turn off all electronic devices. She was talking really loudly. They went back and forth without saying anything. I finally had to remind the lady. It is odd for passengers to ask someone to comply with rules. I think it was United flight."
Cons: "When a bought my ticket, I had asked in the office about WiFi. They told me that you have WiFi on the plane. I had checked this information on KLM.com and saw the same, that you have WiFi. This was the reason, why a chose KLM! Then I tried to connected on board but I couldn’t! WiFi was not available. Crew told me that they don’t know anything about it! I was disappointed and angry."
Pros: "Good amount of space on the plane, lots of movies to watch, good food and drink."
Pros: "Seats were super comfortable, bigger than most planes with extra leg room. Food was excellent and fresh, amazing Dutch cheese sampler was divine. No nonsense staff who had all connecting flight info on hand when we arrived in Abu Dhabi. KLM staff were friendly and efficient. Fabulous airline."
Pros: "Fantastic gate agents!"
Cons: "The food was terrible."
Pros: "Crew was great and helpful despite oversight in my special meal."
Cons: "Special meal request was overlook. I did not mind so much as eating less does some good! It is human to err!"

Cons: "Lost all our bags so couldn’t ski"
Pros: "Lovely crew, very helpful"
Pros: "Entertainment options."
Cons: "Service was poor, seat did not recline, and the food was terrible."
Cons: "My suitcase didn't come with the airline."
Cons: "wasn't able to take the flight since I missed it"
Pros: "Seat 39A did not recline. The gentleman next to me spread his arms out a bit as he typed on his computer the entire way. So I did not get ANY sleep. Plus he got up at least four times."
Cons: "Except for the man next to me - great!"
Pros: "Good entertainment options. Nice flight attendants"
Cons: "It would be helpful for short people to be able to adjust the head rest lower on the seat. More recent released movies would be helpful. More leg room. Not charging more money to choose seats."
Pros: "The time keeping was very good. We left on time and arrived early on both occasion. Good organisation. Excellent service."
Pros: ".Very much on time with pleasant service."
Cons: "Can nit find much fault fir a short run!"
Cons: "Bit cramped for space"
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Flight was comforyable smooth and on time. Nice snack."
Pros: "The flight crew was nice. Plane departed/arrived on time."
Cons: "I paid €60 extra to sit in the emergency door seat to get more leg room but once.i was in the plane learned for more leg room I accepted a smaller seat next to a bathroom and no entertainment. I could not store my belongings near me. No power outlet to charge my devices for my own entertainment on a 7 hour flight. Dealing with constant traffic for the bathroom. I sat in the middle seat between two hours other men. It was a constant struggle arm space. After 7hours in the air I could not wait to get off the plane. If I didn't actually pay an extra €60 for the seat I may not feel bad but I feel like I might have been better off without paying for the "upgrade""
Pros: "The food and the punctuality"
Cons: "The technology in interteiment is not touch screen"
Cons: "I don’t like the limited choice of drinks on these short KLM flights."
Pros: "Staff both at the airport and in the plane were professional and welcoming. Depsite short distance sandwich and drink were offered."
Cons: "Nothing to be honest . All positive."
Cons: "Service from airline host Poorly maintained plane Bad food Old entertainment"
Pros: "Thankful for coffee being served without charge. Not all airlines do that."
Pros: "good service"
Cons: "Didn't allow my carry on. Said too big. Same bag was on earlier connecting flight on much smaller plane. Also on flight on Southwest week prior. But larger intercontinental flight wouldn't allow it."
Cons: "Pet was left behind at vacation destination as pet's reservation (made and confirmed through KLM) was not found at check in. Waiting for Customer Care to help get pet home and take responsibility for situation and getting no response. Very dissapointed, considering law suit."
Cons: "Departure 40 mins late. I took this flight 2 weeks ago and it was also delayed."
Pros: "The cabin crew, the flight and communication and the cleanliness of the plane."
Cons: "It was really unclear which desk to use at Birmingham airport to check in. It was extremely stressful for a first time flier as I had no idea what to do - the desk location wasn't marked clearly and when no staff were there it wasn't clear that the desk was open."
Pros: "Flight was efficient enough and staff were friendly."
Cons: "It was delayed quite a bit and more on-time updates would have been appeciated."
Pros: "Short, comfortable flight. Nothing special. Got us where we needed to be without incident."
Cons: "Nothing. This is filler text to meet the min. characters."
Pros: "Friendliest economy class service I've ever encountered."
Pros: "Seat space was good for a short flight, inclusive of free snack and drink."
Cons: "Too much overoverhead luggage."
Pros: "Overall, good flight"
Pros: "There was no flight! So it's one thing that you have to cancel the flight because of fog; but rebooking us the next day on a flight through New York that doesn't exist, was way below the standard of care I would expect from any airline. Apparently, the NY to LAX flight that KLM booked us on, was only one leg of the flight to Sydney Australia; and according to some airline agreement, only Australian nationals are permitted to take that flight! Running around at JFK from terminal four, to terminal seven, to terminal eight, back to terminal four, to get a flight out, was a bit much considering how tired we were – not to mention hungry, since KLM neglected to provide the kosher meals we had requested with plenty of time – BOTH going to and returning from Europe."
Cons: "I wasn't sitting next to my partner and we sat on the Tarmac for 45 minutes after the flight was already delayed by 30 minutes."
Pros: "Delays and no proper customer service."
Cons: "Taking off late caused me stress because I had transferring flight within less than two hours in transit originally. So we arrived later about 50 minutes so I had to manage my situation and find my next gate and be on time. And an other thing that I disliked was that I was allowed to have only one baggage which was very unusual for international flight between two countenances. And the crew was not polite enough so she made fun of my Cary-on. In short, I expected more from KLM which is famous for them being "Royal" but not acting as one of them."
Pros: "Great food and movies."
Cons: "Might have lost my bag. I was told not to claim my bag and that it would meet me at my final destination. That did not happen. I even paid extra because of the over weight. When they charge you 100 extra euro you expect your bag to make it to its final destination."
Pros: "Not time departure and cabin crew were effective and efficient."
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "Economy class product offers good value for money."
Cons: "Boarding processes could be enforced consistently."
Cons: "My family of five spent a lovely week in Sardinia. Our return flight took us through Rome. We were boarded an hour ahead of departure from Rome for our 10+ hour flight, only to be held on the ground for a one hour delay. Barring equipment malfunction, this is a totally unacceptable way to treat people. Be assured that I will avoid Rome in the future if at all possible. I trust that Rome nor Italy need my tourist dollars and there are many lovely other places to spend them. Exceedingly disappointed, Pam Just"
Cons: "Why is there no rating for on-time delivery? After my super-late departure from PDX to AMS (computer outage), I essentially had the same problem on my return flight. KLM's Birmingham to Amsterdam flight departed so late that I again missed my Amsterdam connection."
Pros: "Take off and landing"
Cons: "Layover time"
Pros: "The crew is nice"
Cons: "No respect of distancing the seats ; all the seats were occupied. No wifi"
Pros: "How great everyone was and smooth sailing."
Cons: "Made sure the flight was not over booked."
Pros: "There is a nothing to mention that was memorable or comfortable."
Cons: "I asked for an upgrade as we are on our honeymoon. The ground staff only wanted to get us on the plane and not try in anyway to recognize us. Our seats were very poor quality, you should immediately replace them! I would have rather stood than sit on the flight. The in flight entertainment is so poor. Absolutely disappointing especially with the head sets not working because of poor ports of connection. The food was absolutely tragic. You should fire your catering company. I expect more from your airline and I was disappointed all the way through. I hope you can provide my wife and I better service and an upgrade when we fly back to Washington DC on Flight AF 0054 from CDG to IAD. I work in the luxury hotel sector, and even the door men and room attendants have more autonomy to wow our guests. Flying AF does not want me to spend any more money with your airline in the future."
Cons: "I was almost forced to stow my luggage in the hold despite me telling the check-in people tjat I had my meds and cpap in the carryon. I spoke to multiple people. Not sensitive."
Pros: "Despite being a short flight, they gave food"
Cons: "Nothing. All ok"
Cons: "The food is usually very good, this time it was poor to disappointing- dark meat chicken.., tasteless & unhealthy....mushy fruit dessert choices"
Cons: "Our request for vegetarian meals got lost after a glight was cancelled."
Pros: "Everything! The service was exceptional!"
Cons: "I’m not sure that short-hop flights should serve solid food. The quality invariably disappoints. Otherwise, all is good with this flight."
Pros: "Boarding procedures and crew were top. Wines and beverages excellent and even in super economy water was served several times"
Cons: "The food could have been much better, should consider doing everything organic. As it was, the chicken in the meal was awful, the dessert terrible. The rice in the salad hard, almost uncooked. The only good quality food was the bread and the cheese"
Pros: "The crew was amazing and extremely helpful!"
Cons: "The food could have been better"
Pros: "Crew very professional"
Cons: "Boarding was a little confusing"
Cons: "Really hard to get boarding passes online"
Cons: "See above."
Pros: "Bag was sent straight to NY although Norwegian screwed it up. Am yet to receive my luggage."
Pros: "Average crew. Average seat."
Cons: "They could have controlled screening babies better. They just let them scream....."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful and welcoming!"
Cons: "Placed in last row w/ non-reclining seats, even though bought tix 7 months early. We travel w/ only carry-on bags. AF allows 35 kg each but only 12 kg in cabin. I asked, online, twice, if we could have a couple of extra kg for hand pieces. Rec’d only auto. luggage policy. Forced to check both bags."
Cons: "Too much time spent at boarding. On luggage missing."
Pros: "Crew was awesome!!"
Cons: "I paid extra for the seat, but there was a metal box under the seat in front of me that curtailed my ability to stow my carry bag, and my leg room. I am very diappointed that I paid above the normal seat charge as if there was a premium to this seat, but in reality it was a sb par seat."
Pros: "The transfer times were excellent"
Cons: "Boarding at CDG was awfully slow"
Cons: "Booked with my partner. Ended up sitting apart. Not good"
Cons: "Not really an Air France flight, AF not interested in taking care of their frequent fliers."
Pros: "Flight was delayed 4 hours with no explanation"
Cons: "Asked for wheel chair assistance and was not met in Paris. Had difficulty and barely made my flight. A gentleman who worked at airport assisted me"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and the food was excellent"
Pros: "The staff..the attentions..food."
Pros: "Crew was nice movie selection was good."
Cons: "Plane was late which caused a 5 hour layover in Paris CDG. Food not very good. Entertainment system clumsy to operate."
Pros: "Good selection of movies"
Pros: "The plain was ok, the crew really nice and attentive. The only “problem” would be the food, mostly for the breakfast that was awful."
Pros: "Timely and smooth teansit."
Cons: "Food has a way to go to be appetising."
Cons: "I was treated like I am not supposed to ask for food and they had one choice of meal for me while they had 2 for the rest."
Pros: "The crew worked hard, but the food was below the French standards."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 2.5 hours and the passengers spent this time in the cabin without a/c."
Pros: "Quiet! No noise-canceling earphones needed. Delicious food."
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!!"
Cons: "We paid for Business Class from JFK to TLV. The flight to Tel Aviv was in a small plane with 3 across seats that hardly reclined. We are most unhappy and will complain to American Express Platinum Card."
Pros: "Arriving safely."
Cons: "We didn't get boarding passes for the second flight at EDI so we had to exit the secure area, get boarding passes, and go through security a second time for the same trip."
Pros: "Punctual, not crowded."
Cons: "Even though the plane was far from full, passengers were allowed only 1 carry-on item (no personal item), contrary to policy published online by Air France. This policy applied even to people with Economy Premium for the rest of the trip (which allows 2 carry-on suitcases, not a useful feature if one cannot begin with this number to reach the transoceanic flight)."
Pros: "Always like Air France. They are in tune with keeping the traveler updated."
Cons: "Walked all over the terminal looking for signage for Croatia Airlines. Information services sent me to the right location, but it was marked Air France. 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: "On time...comfortable, clean, newish A321...good leg room...friendly crew...pain au chocolat for breakfast"

Cons: "Each time the space in this planes is smaller. Surprising, it was very hot all the time."
Pros: "The flight crew and flights itself were great."
Cons: "I was told the wrong flight time, wrong terminal, wrong gate, and wrong airline. I couldn't check-in online. It was horribly inconvenient and I nearly missed the flight. We got there with 5 minutes until the doors closed."
Pros: "Disorganised and slow"
Cons: "Couldn't organise a booze up in brewery. Baggage offload took forever"
Pros: "Best flight I've ever flown. Blankets and pillows provided with many options for movies."
Pros: "normal flight"
Cons: "i would prefer little bit more comfort."
Cons: "The people working on the land side lack of a complete sense of service. They are rude, unrespectful and with no professionalism. It is a shame that the last impression you get from Israel is the aggressiveness."
Pros: "Some of the crew were fantastic while some of the others were pretty mediocre. The plane was quite nice"
Cons: "Some of the crew were fantastic while some of the others were pretty mediocre. They didn't have agua con gas (soda water). The toilets were not kept clean and got pretty messy. Just a bit sloppy overall..."
Pros: "I really like the fact that I could check the baggage the day before the trip. This was very helpful and I could avoid keeping the bags during a long stop in Madrid."

Cons: "It should have departed on time. It departed 50 minutes later than the original time."
Cons: "More space and reclining seats please!"
Cons: "Phone chargers did not function"
Pros: "The crew was professional and courteous. USB charger"
Cons: "2 hr delay. Auxiliary battery crashed. Mediocre food. Poor wine. Limited entertainment"

Cons: "Travel notifications should mention documentation requirements."
Pros: "The people"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "SEAT was not confortable"
Pros: "On time and pleasant service ."

Pros: "Not much it’s a very regular flight"
Cons: "Delayed almost 1 hour. No entertainment on board and nothing offered except for purchase"
Pros: "Cabin crew was friendly and efficient"
Cons: "Crappy plane for an international flight"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "The lack of water offers during the flight"
Pros: "OTP, the plane was modern, high load factor, which means that this flight is doing good. The wifi was also good,"
Cons: "Only 4 bathrooms for the whole economy and premium economy classes and only at the center of the plane. No snacks between dinner and breakfast."
Pros: "Finnair landed their plane so smoothly...."
Pros: "First flight ever where water or coffee we’re not offered. Good cart came out. Nothing offered. 3 attendants? To do what??"
Cons: "No beverage or food offered"
Cons: "Our seats was almost the last seat of all our flights, even we checked in very early."
Cons: "They didn’t let me check in or on the flight. Boarding was a disaster for others on my previous flight who were making this connection and British Airways, Iberia, and Kayak had TERRIBLE customer service when helping me (or refusing to help me) rebook my flight. I will never again use any of these companies. I’d rather walk to Europe."
Pros: "Every thing"
Cons: "They need to have agents stationed throughout the terminal to help customers make connections. I had 2 hours and I still barely made my flight. The airline representatives are extremely unhelpful and the customs process is an absolute mess in Madrid."
Cons: "Airline personnel were not helpful and seemed annoyed when asked questions about a very tight connection I was trying to make in Madrid. They brushed off my questions with one word answers and then it turned out that we were 10 minutes late arriving and I missed my connection. The customer service people who were supposed to re-book me, actually tried to blame me for missing the connection! Overall, not a great experience -- very inefficient process with no one at the airline taking responsibility. Won't fly again if I have the choice."
Pros: "Seat comfort entertainment and food"
Cons: "The service was aweful. Right from getting my ticket, to getting served on the flight. Staff needs major improvement."
Pros: "The boarding process was excellent and efficient. I liked it."
Cons: "There was no free food and no entertainment. That was very disappointing."
Pros: "It wAs on time"
Pros: "Aircraft is comfortable (A340-600)"
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was rude."
Pros: "Check in personnel were able to place me in the 3rd row where the seat pitch was poor but not as bad as the rows farther back. Wheelchair helpers were very efficient and friendly."
Cons: "This was return part of my journey. The LHR to MAD leg of my journey was extremely painful. I was unable to pay online or on the phone to upgrade the short leg of my return trip without raising cost of my whole trip from USD $1250 to over USD $4000! Also was not able to choose seats ahead of time online or on the phone. Even in the 3rd row it was difficult to fit my thigh length in the seat pitch. I had to sit with my legs splayed and with one leg in the aisle. My leg was constantly hit by luggage, pax, and cabin crew. It is critical to me that I can physically fit into the space between my seat and the one in front. With the short seat pitch emergency evacuation would be very difficult for me and the other pax. Since I need a wheel chair I can no longer request the exit row as I have done for 45 years."
Pros: "Entertainment choices were ok."
Cons: "no leg room."
Pros: "Decent flight"
Cons: "No snack, no drink, no entertainment - not the end of the world on a short flight, but they're categories you asked about"
Cons: "The crew is so rough, never smiling, and speaking very poor English. Well, it was Iberia, and they are famous for that. When the Spanish company will address the fact that customer service should be their top priority is still to be seen."
Cons: "Lack of organization"
Cons: "There was very little leg room - far less than a standard flight. Granted, I'm tall but be warned if you are flying British Airlines and it really is Iberia"
Cons: "Iberia is not good at boarding"
Cons: "We paid $30 each way for extra legroom, but our seats did not provide it, and there were no empty seats available in the appropriate rows to correct the error. As happened before the airline pleaded a "change of aircraft" with no extra legroom seats. We were somewhat accommodated by being re-seated in the middle section with an empty seat between us, but this was not what we preferred or needed."
Pros: "They solve the flight connection issue and move us to a direct flight."
Pros: "I did a up grade To bisnees an it was very disapointed"
Pros: "Seats were not as bad/tiny as expected although they would not recline at all. We were served 2 meals on our overseas flight. That was also a surprise."
Cons: "Seats did not recline Could not hear boarding instructions."
Pros: "Not once have I had a positive experience on American Airlines. I actually booked this ticket 4 times before finally receiving a fully confirmed itinerary. Only to get on the plane in SLC and sit on the tarmac for 90 minutes causing me to miss my connecting flight. The replacement flights I again missed because American couldn't find anyone to give the travel voucher to an airport an hour away for the replacement flight they booked. I've never seen a more consistently incompetent company."
Cons: "On top of all of this, my bag is lost. I'm at my destination and have been for two days and American airlines all can't get me my luggage so I can start my vacation. This is the biggest joke of a company and I'm disgusted with their lack of accountability, responsibility for the problems they've caused and the insensitivity they've shown for their screw up."
Pros: "I felt rushed when eating. There was not enough time to eat when they were coming to offer more bread and coffee. They were in a hurry to pick up. Food was short"
Pros: "The flight attendants were so kind, the food was delicious, and the entertainment options were great!"
Cons: "We were on the plane for 2 hours before we were offered any drinks (soda, water, etc.) The seats were quite small ( I'm average sized.) and I often felt as if I were slipping off the seat. The aircraft was very warm with poor airflow."
Cons: "Mala atencion al publico, de parte del personal en el aeropuerto en madrid, pésima educación para solucionar problemas."
Cons: "No food and no water"
Pros: "Customer service, food, comfort."
Cons: "Not a lot of movies to watch."
Pros: "Entertainment was the best part"
Cons: "Service was okay. Could have used one more flight attendant on staff. Response time was slow."
Pros: "Guests were boarded quickly. Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Food was tasteless and bland. Crew was not very attentive."
Cons: "flight was delayed, still don't have my luggage"
