Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Food was good but served in a unorganized manner, drinks and food was not sequentially served as normally."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not polite and difficult to understand. They closed two of the lavatories for themselves. I’m not impressed with Emirates."
Pros: "Check in was okay."
Cons: "We thought that the food was not up to Emirates standard as we have previously flown with them before. Disappointing really."
Pros: "Excellent crew, who make each person important."
Cons: "Being in economy nothing the crew could do would make it better, however as I have said before Emirates miles rewards should be continue not be lost after a certain time."
Pros: "Amazing crew!"
Cons: "The seats were not the best and it would have been nice to have a meal other than just a small breakfast."
Pros: "The crew were awesome"
Cons: "The film choice was poor"
Pros: "Same again. A good flight and well fed."
Pros: "Crew & food was amazing"
Pros: "Very pleasant and helpful"
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "The ecperience"
Cons: "Food was poor"
Cons: "Online Check-in didn't work properly, so we had to check in at the airport. They were understaffed and it took us over an hour to get through check in. The customer service was horrible, and we were only allowed to bring a backpack for a carry on, forcing us to check our one carry on bag. This made our two long flights uncomfortable with nothing to change into once we landed in Dubai and still had another 8 flight to Johannesburg. The flight itself was overbooked, and we then had to place our backpacks under the seats in front of us, giving us no leg room for 13 hrs."
Pros: "The size of seats , the food and the service"
Cons: "The entertainment system had few glitches but workable ( flickering banners of the channel or sound, volume"
Pros: "Leg space was better"
Cons: "Long line for boarding .its a big flight so you have to add more restrooms"
Cons: "Read the above. Completely incompetent and dishonest company"
Pros: "Almost everything"
Cons: "Not sure you can change anything but it seems as if we had an inordinate amount of crying kids. On a 14 hour flifht, that was hard"
Pros: "Obviously Biz Class is a great proposition for a flight of this length and once again the experience was a good one. Staff are always friendly and very attentive."
Cons: "We are not big eaters but when you leave at 10am then a lunch and breakfast is a bit of a stretch and even with light snack options we found ourselves hungry. Breakfast was not too flash"
Pros: "Modern spacious plane, on-board experience all fine. Flat beds in Bysiness are great."
Cons: "Boarding is shambolic - no signs, no announcements, first class passengers get herded into a large pen with the others , which leads to no reliable priority boarding. Flight was delayed 25 minutes (advised by kayak not Emirates); no acknowledgement of it - departure boards never reflected it, no announcement."
Pros: "food and entertainment"
Cons: "The non veg food got over . My wife waited , but they told they dont have any more non veg food Emirates should plan accordingly rather than doing these cheap things"
Cons: "Full aircraft so pick you seats early"
Pros: "I liked that there was live TV available on this flight."
Cons: "I don’t like that there is not and ovo-lacto vegetarian option available to people like me."
Cons: "It took over 45 minutes for my bag to come onto the collection conveyor, this seems excessive."
Pros: "Everything from food to seating was quite comfortable."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit more difficult since they did not call boarding zones"
Pros: "Wasn't full so there was space to street a bit. Stewardesses were polite and attentive - checking throughout whether drinks were required (on other flights they've disappeared between food services). Good selection of films."
Cons: "Although the good was actually alright in this flight, I don't like the fact that Emirates no longer do a vegetarian meal - I have to have a vegan meal instead, which often means things are just left off (not replaced) that I could actually eat, like cheese and biscuits, or a croissant."
Pros: "I really like the entertainment and the air cameras."
Cons: "I like everything"
Pros: "Exceptional attention to details of client comfort."
Cons: "No faults."
Pros: "Facilities excellent. Staff not quite so attentive on this leg of the trip."
Cons: "Just left to it. Not much fuss made."
Cons: "I understand that the cabin crew’s job focus is not to serve drinks and food to passengers. However, I would’ve expected well-mannered employees from Emirates. I was on an aisle seat, a steward bumped on my arm quite roughly and he merely continued walking. Not even a word was said."
Pros: "Not much. The crew were bright and breezy. Ish."
Cons: "Emirates has applied EasyJet seat ramming techniques to its A380 business Class product. As a result even the spacious upper deck of an A380 feels cramped. The seat width in business Class is the same as economy so lying on your side to sleep is an impossibility for all but the diminutive or children. It’s hard to justify 4-5 times the economy fare to sit in such cramped ‘pile em high, sell em cheap’ seats. Breakfast served just before landing at LGW was honestly the most revolting meal I’ve ever been served onboard an aircraft, and I’ve flown Monarch. Less scrambled egg than puréed egg slops with gristly undercooked chicken sausages. Ryanair would blush at serving up such lousy fare. Emirates are paring back the ‘overheads’ in business Class and its starting to show. Cheapening the product (in every sense) might work for some but if I’m going to stump up thousands I think I’ll choose an airline that treats me less like self loading cargo in future."
Pros: "Great legroom in Economy seats on A380 DXB-LGW Good inflight entertainment"
Cons: "Inflight service perfunctory Food of adequate standard Both used to be much better on Emirates"
Pros: "380's mostly comfortable serious entertainment system and well trained,efficient ,friendly staff."
Cons: "The A/C was on full blast. Before take off the flight attendant took away my pillow from my lap?? No blanke was provided upon asking and my pillow was noy returned either. Considering this flight took off from CMB at 3:00 AM, both items would have been a great help. I skipped my meal."
Pros: "Spacious, great entertainment selection, crew is very attentive"
Cons: "Not all seats can lean back"
Cons: "Crew were rude, kept knocking customers. no vegan meal No drinks offered for majority of flight poor quality entertainment, screen didn't work properly."
Pros: "On our onward flight from Orlando to Dubai, the crew made sure the flight was always clean (specially the toilets - they really cleaned them up every 30 mins) Not so much on the same flight returning from Dubai to Orlando - toilets get wet and messy after about 5 hours and were never cleaned after."
Cons: "Overall, food and service were ok. I really didn't think Emirates did anything different in Econony class compared to other airlines (Air India)"
Pros: "Entertainment & food options, onboard service, seat width & leg room (I'm just under 6 foot)"
Pros: "Great hospitality from the crew and quality plane facilities."
Pros: "The flight crew is great, the plane is modern and the in-flight entertainment is awesome"
Cons: "Food quantities could be more. In such long haul flights, individuals line myself who do not sleep in focus tend to get hungrier. Boarding at Dubai has become a mess ever since Trump instituted a restriction on carry-on electronic devices for flights to the US originating from certain middle eastern counties."
Pros: "The entertainment is excellent- so many choices. I also really appreciated having a plug and a port in the house seat, I could keep my devices charged and feel free to use them as much as I liked. The attendants were friendly and helpful the entire flight."
Cons: "The food was not amazing, for a near 17 hour flight, I think 1 more snack would have been welcome. Also a personal bottle of water would have been great. I had to ask for water several times and I noticed lots of other passengers doing the same."
Cons: "Thy did not hv service on demand in First Class. So had lunch at 10.30 am"
Pros: "The plane was not full and I had three seats to myself, so my very positive review is not totally fair. However, on a relative basis in comparison to other airlines, Emirates is the best on which I have flown."
Pros: "Generally good standard, nothing to sit about but there was a selection of recent and older films and TV, OK food and fairly comfortable seats."
Cons: "While the food was ok, there were some odd omissions from the vegetarian meals that sometimes made them seem smaller or worse value compared to the non-veggie options. Still better than I've had on some other airlines though."
Pros: "I like the legroom on Emirates."
Cons: "Nothing to dislike."
Cons: "crappy entertainment screens food was a bit blah (stale bread products, slimy fruit)"
Pros: "I liked the crew and the attitude of staff"
Cons: "All flights were delayed Boarding experience is not that great Not sufficient leg room, so cramped up Food was very average"
Pros: "Emirates are always very good in every department, unfortunately for the third trip in succession on the outward journey they ran out of the main dish on the dinner menu."
Pros: "it was a very nice experience. The leg room was good for economy. If one is comfortable they then enjoy all the accoutrements . food was good, entertainment, and staff was very good. there's always one when asked for help with a question would be every helpful all in all nicely done"
Pros: "i liked the neatness and welcome"
Cons: "i did not like the food"
Cons: "Check in an hour early!"
Pros: "This was our first trip to Europe using Emirates airline. It was perfect. Low price, excallent meals & service aboard. All staff very professional & helpful. Check in at airports were a breeze. Will definitely use Emirates again & recommend to family & friends."
Cons: "Love that they fly an a380 into christchurch - a bit overkill but was told it is cheaper to overnight the plane in christchurch vs Sydney or Melbourne"
Pros: "Food and movies"
Cons: "Boarding time"
Pros: "Nice crew, surprisingly fresh food."
Cons: "Very cramped seating."
Pros: "Crew and staff were very nice. I got lucky and got the whole row to myself."
Cons: "More space in Economy, and to have the passenger in front lift up their seat during meals. It's very hard to eat with the tray down when the person in front has their seat reclined all the way back."
Pros: "The seats were smaller which is fine for a 1.5 hr flight but if I had to compare it to the first leg of the trip, these things stick out."
Cons: "The flight time seemed late. The plane was already there, the airport was empty and the gate was full. It would’ve been nicer if it was a little earlier, although getting through customs again might not be as easy for some people on a 3 hour layover?"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No inflight entertainment available."
Pros: "Lovely staff and great food"
Cons: "There was no in-seat entertainment and we weren’t advised of this in advance"
Cons: "The frittata and the spinach was not the best meal, but the rest seemed really good."
Pros: "Smooth flight, minimal disturbances, crew extremely courteous and helpful!"
Cons: "Food is below average!"
Cons: "Movie selection could have been better"
Pros: "The seats had more room than the bigger planes. We were offered a very nice sandwich for lunch There was cool air pumped around the plane from the moment we boarded"
Cons: "This flight was pleasant, so nothing to worry about."
Cons: "No complaints"
Pros: "The seats were comfy."
Cons: "I booked through Budget Air and was initially online able to confirm seats and meals for my husband and I online with Qantas easily. Months out my flight was cancelled and I was rebooked onto a later flight that would have made us miss all of our transfers to our honeymoon on Fitzroy Island. Because I had booked through 'a 3rd party' Qantas refused to assist me. I managed to convince budget air to change our flights. We were moved to a jetstar flight from Melbourne to cairns. I had to confirm that this had occurred and go through multiple people online to reallocate seats and food options for my husband and myself again. Only my luggage allowance was carried across to jetstar and neither of our meal allowances were. When it came to online check-in with jetstar I could not check my husband in online only myself. I spoke to multiple people online who all confirmed they didn't know why or there was no problem and we should just present ID and check in in person. When we got to the airport Qantas had not transferred the e-ticket code across for my husband's booking and this is why we could not check him in online. The jetstar staff had to try to get his original booking code from Qantas. As it turned out I had to original booking code through budget Air in my hand and had to assert this information to staff. Flying back we were able to check in online fine with Qantas. Our boarding passes printed different sizes but did not present a problem when we dropped off our luggage. When we sent to check in the staff member couldn't get the smaller pass to read and my husband had to assert that he also had it on his phone. Despite all of my online conversations the aisle seat was allocated to me and not my husband who required it because of a medical condition and the flight was 30min delayed. We won't be traveling with Qantas or jetstar, or booking through budget Air again."
Pros: "Excellent in-flight service"
Pros: "Staff helpful and friendly. We got there"
Cons: "It’s a small plane without much to offer"
Pros: "Staff, seat (exit seet)"
Cons: "The Q streaming app has limited options and a nuisance to use. Better to have screens on back of seats as of old or at least a better selection on the streaming service."
Cons: "We sprinted to make our connecting flight - bags didn't make it. Got woken up at 2am to collect them after a whole day traveling."
Pros: "Exit row seat. Lovely aircraft and cabin crew."
Pros: "Nice friendly staff."
Cons: "The snack provided was very unhealthy, and they did not have any alcohol available."
Pros: "Crew members were attentive and helpful."
Cons: "The seat was too narrow for keg space. Especially when I had someone who seated in front who's big n he has to bend his seat far behind"
Cons: "Late arrival 15 min taxi to gate 22 mins wait for bags and$23 yo get to International Terminal. Next time fly via Melbourne"
Pros: "Crews in flight are friendly Meals are decent Movie collection in flight are plenty"
Cons: "Can't check in via mobile app nor kiosk in airport Still using 747. The plane could be made in 70s? 80s?"
Pros: "Staff were friendly."
Cons: "A tiny pla? A bumpy flight. You should get the heads up about such small planes."
Pros: "quick on time flight"
Cons: "cabin VERY hot and cramped"
Pros: "Flight ran on time Cabin staff good"
Cons: "Insufficient leg room for normal sized person Food choice poor Maybe seat backs could be fixed in place (as in the US)"
Pros: "it was good to escape more than 3 hrs long, tiring journey to Sydney and also lesser wait period at Sydney"
Pros: "The crew was great and attentive."
Cons: "I'm not sure why we needed to bus to the plane at LAX but it caused and over 1 hour delay for take off."
Pros: "747-400, new seats with more legroom. Awesome selection of movies, TV & documentaries."
Cons: "Tray table would not stay up - steward gave me stickers to hold it up."
Pros: "Crew, spacious seats and airplane."
Cons: "Plane was a bit old, like bathrooms."
Pros: "Food was good and service was excellent."
Pros: "Qantas rarely disappoint! I have been flying with them for almost 35 years and I don't recall a bad flight"
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind"
Pros: "Staff. Entertainment was okay . Flight arrived in less than 13 hours rather than posted 13hr 40min"
Cons: "Leg room for such a long flight is unacceptable. Connecting west jet flight was twice as much from lax to vancouver. Food was very poor."
Pros: "Crew was friendly and lots of entertainment choices on the flight"
Cons: "I checked the flight prior to going to Auckland airport and all showed on time, by the time we cleared immigration and were in the airport we were notified of a six hour delay due to mechanical issues. I realize these things happen, but earlier notification would have prevented an 8 hour stay in the airport. The seats are pretty close together for a 3.5 hour flight. After hearing a lot of positive comments about Qantas, this was not a great first impression"
Pros: "Absolute top shelf service from checkin to de-planing."
Pros: "Assistance is good."
Pros: "Excellent service as always. Luggage was checked through to the final destination."
Cons: "The passenger next to me was too big to have the armrest down."
Pros: "Great service and comfort"
Cons: "I am a frequent flyer with QANTAS and a regular customer for many years. Why then do I get the worst seats on the aircraft (last row without reclining). These seats are often assigned to me and they are extremely uncomfortable. I booked a paid fare and did not claim points. My FF preferred seats are mid-plane, aisle. The screen had very poor contrast and it was like watching through cloth. To make it worse the entertainment system had very poor sound with long periods of frozen frames and staccato sound making it difficult to follow the plot. My wife's system (also FF) was the same. Not happy with the "special welcome" given to FF passengers!"
Pros: "The service was great. Flight got delayed a day, but everyone was well taken care of in spite of the situation. During the flight the staff was attentive and courteous. I'd definitely fly with Qantas again."
Cons: "The fact that the flight was delayed, but that was to no fault of the staff. I'd definitely let that slide."
Pros: "Staff friendly. Dinner served on flight. Unexpected but welcomed and delicious. Arrived on time. Thank you Qantas (((:"
Pros: "Excellent service from counter to end of flight, well dine"
Pros: "I have a nut allergy and there are no nut free meal options to select prior to my flight. Worse still the attendants didn't bother to check the meal ingredients, something that was offered to me by the budget airline Fly Dubai."
Cons: "tv monitor didn't work well."
Pros: "We loved everything from check in to leaving the plane. They are a lovely bunch. Thank you, Qantas, for hiring wonderful staff members. We hope you treat them well."
Pros: "Perfect flight, departure and arrival in time. Friendly team on board. Appreciate it! Thank you!"
Pros: "Like the staff -so down to earth Australian -no airs and graces like some other airlines. No fuss service. Always very helpful.You actually get food and drinks gratis on Qantas! The craft are always clean and well maintained. Easy to check in on line too. Offered in flight entertainment but didn't require it."
Cons: "We boarded a bit late -so there was a bit of waiting around without being advised of what was happening. But we figured when we saw a man in a wheel-chair being helped on before everyone else that -that was the issue. So happy to wait."
Cons: "It was late"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 1 hour"
Pros: "Didn't have to pay for drinks, after 4pm policy!"
Cons: "Call what was server 'supper' didn't quite cut it. More like tiny heavily salted cardboard."
Pros: "Despite the fact that there was a nearly 9 hour delay in Sydney, Qantas handled it as best they could. I received three $15 meal vouchers to use in the airport. And, since I missed my connecting flight, Qantas booked a hotel for me, free shuttle service to the hotel from the airport and rebooked me on the earliest connecting flight. I was of course inconvenient for this to happen but it was handled well."
"I spent more money to like where I was sitting. I’m so disgruntled at all of the airlines and their “efficient” cramming and packing in as many passengers as possible. I’m continuously panicked now due to claustrophobic feelings in planes. Trying to go to the bathroom and literally touching the walls as I try to move about is so disgusting. Bumping every single elbow and shoulder as I was down an aisle is so awful too. And I’m not a large person. Anyway. Clearly my complaint will change nothing so I’m not sure why I’m even writing this."
Pros: "Check-in started a bit late due to late arriving incoming flight but the crew at the gate as well as in the plane did their best to speed the process. Flight was smooth, lande ontime despite taking off nearly 20 minutes late. Captain kept us informed when, through no fault of American Airlines there was a delay at the gate. Overall well done in these trying times."
Cons: "It will be nice when things are back to normal and actual food is served on flights of 4 or more hours duration."
Pros: "Very quick flight, arrived way before the estimated time of arrival."
Cons: "extremely racist crew made the entire flight uncomfortable for everyone."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Not much other than lower fare"
Pros: "How quick American Airlines moves to keep people on time."
Pros: "Yes! The crew was amazing! The seat was perfect!"
Cons: "It was very cold on the plane."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "No complaints so far"
Pros: "Horrible !!!"
Cons: "Be on time !!!!"
Cons: "Everything, especially an AA customer representative. Very rude, inconsiderate, and unprofessional."
Pros: "Would’ve loved if the flight from Louisville to Charlotte weren’t delayed 2 hours for mechanical reasons!"
Cons: "The flight could’ve waited for us instead of leaving on time for Allentown!"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled on Sunday and they couldn’t get us out until the following Saturday. So we had to cancel our reservation and get refunded... except American says talk to royal jordanian, royal jordanian says talk to air booking. Air booking isn’t reimbursing us and want US to pay $400."
Cons: "I find seats a bit narrow"
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 flight attendant was very nice and tried to make our long delay tolerable"
Cons: "Why do you board a flight when the airport has grounded takeoffs? Just to meet some stupid metric for on-time departures, you make 100 people sit in the plane for 2 hrs, when you could have just let them wait to board. Misery."
Pros: "Relatively smooth flight, departed and arrived on time"
Cons: "Overhead storage was crowded"
Pros: "Collecting bags was terribleterriblel"
Cons: "Collecting bags was terrible"
Cons: "Waited an extra 30 minutes for luggage to be loaded. Every American ( British airways partner) flight we took was delayed."
Pros: "The crew member was great."
Pros: "The flight crew was quite lovely."
Cons: "People all over the coach section were complaining about not being able to sit together. Families with babies, couples, even ours (though the kids are old enough for me not to be truly worried as some were). Somehow reservations seems to have messed up an entire flight. We gave up trying to fix it for fear they would make it worse. Then the woman at the gate tried to get folks to volunteer to give up their seats on an overbooked flight. But she was screaming at us. Unbelievably unpleasant to be yelled at over and over again and told we could lose our seats. The poor weather likely caused flights to be rerouted into PHL so our flight out to SFO ended up 1/3 empty. FABULOUS. But the gate experience was horrible and the legroom, had it been a full flight, was miserable. I'm in search of an airline with a humane approach."
Pros: "Seats in general Economy ended up being fairly comfortable and headrests would bend enough to actually support my head while sleeping. Nice to have granual baggage tracking info in the AA app."
Cons: "Overhead entertainment video quality was horrible. Awful user interface for trying to figure out and use the personal device streaming entertainment. Did not order food on the flight, but options were very limited for a 5.5 hour night-time flight (8p EST -> 11p PST)"
Pros: "Flight was pleasant and all the crew members were courteous."
Pros: "Relatively quick embarkation process despite having to walk outside. Got us safely to destination."
Cons: "Those old turbo props suck big time. Not only everything looks dated but the engine drone and especially the vibration are unbearable. I have flown turbo-prop in Europe and they didn’t seem so noisy and transmitting so much vibration."
Pros: "It was worth while upgrading to premium plus for the first time I was actually comfortable flying the crew is always kind and caring and the food was. Better than usual. Unfortunately Heathrow employees board handicapped people and the are horrible. They didn't come to board us until the plane was 75 percent boarded which is just unacceptable for a wheelchair user who cannot stand. BA had to stop boarding to get us aboard the plane with the help of BA crew who are great."
Cons: "Never made it on this flight because of cancellation"
Pros: "Nice new seats."
Cons: "The new seats are meant for "people shorter than 6 feet tall" as the flight attendant said to me. Is the airline industry deliberately discriminating against 6'6" people? 15% of the people you seat based on population are over 6'. I'm sick of paying more money for my long legs."
Cons: "There was no inflight entertainment at all. Your only option is to purchase WiFi so that you can view entertainment on your phone or other electronic device. For a plane that cannot offer inflight entertainment, the WiFi should be free."
Pros: "Flight was supposed to leave 5:45 PM , they let us board the plane right on time, then we stayed waiting on board for half an hour, there was zero communication from staff or the captain, then suddenly they asked us to leave for no reason whatsoever, we waited and waited, they decided to move us to Gate 1 instead and had us wait for four hours, they served us little food, and told us wait for AA to provide a new plane. we were delayed for four hours, flight left 10PM. very very dissatisfied, never ride with AA or Iberia"
Cons: "I need a refund for this flight. it was a horror, 4 hours of delay with zero communication."
Pros: "Everythung was on time."
Cons: "The seats are much closer together ... so challenging for a 6' 2" male"
Cons: "There was a 3 hour flight delay in JFK but to be honest there is a lot to do in the airport and Nice bars and shops next to the gate so I was occupied. Annoying for family picking me up in Scotland however."
Pros: "Leave and arrive on time"
Cons: "we were delayed almost 3 hours due to an error with the gate change not being relayed to the Plane nor the Cargo crew."
Pros: "A flight that actually had extra seats? I couldn't believe it. Plus the entertainment options made the 8 hour flight "fly" by (no pun intended)"
Pros: "The flight was comfortable with good food and movie options."
Cons: "Being in the last row, the deaf didn't recline much and I had difficulty sleeping. Also, I was not informed on the ticket that this particular international flight only allowed one free checked bag, not two, ad got stuck with a $100 extra baggage fee."
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Pros: "Smooth and quick"
Pros: "Everyone was very helpful."
Cons: "I am so tired of people reclining back in my lap. It has happened for the last 3 times I have flown. The last flight the man reclined before we even took off and he was not instructed to put his seat up. There is no room for the tray table when the person reclines in front of you. I am sick of looking at fat bald heads during the entire flight. Wifi also sucks."
Pros: "Employees were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "I think every CEO of a company should be forced to eat their food. It was horrible. A fresh sandwich would be so much better (with add your own may/mustard) The air freshener from the bathroom was so strong that I was nauseous the whole flight. We were at least 8-10 rows away from the restroom. It sprayed about every 20 minutes. My tv screen didn't work. Made it a long flight. No one else around me had that problem"
Pros: "That the flight was not full and staff were just great very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "All good on this flight."
Pros: "It was not a finnair flight.... I actually flew on American Airlines. The flight was a little bumpy. The captain did a great job of keeping us informed of things going on! The crew were awesome!!!"
Cons: "I didn't like that up until the day before I thought i was flying Finnair and was trying to checkin with finnair onlt to find out it's American Airlines i was flying. Very confusing but I figured it out"
Pros: "The AA app for entertainment works well, friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 90+ minutes, yet they didn't tell anyone until 90 minutes prior to departure. They knew of system delays and should have updated many hours before the flight but they didn't and had us all there very early waiting around doing nothing."
Cons: "People still using mobiles as we were taking off. Crew seemed not too bothered."
Cons: "The crew was late because of an incoming flight they were rude to other passengers and seemed to have an attitude after a long day they made very few announcements but the flight went fast"
Pros: "Boarding was impossible! The line was longer than the jet bridge itself and we had to wait after being called for a 1/2 hour."
Cons: "That i booked a flight that departed 6:20pm on Alaska Airlines and found out i was put on a red eye American Airlines flight that left at 11:50 pm. In addition did not reciveve any notification of the change. Had to leave the airport because i thought i was leaving at 6:20 pm :("
Pros: "New plane; great entertainment; very friendly and helpful on-board staff."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed and the American bag drop line at Heathrow was long and slow. I understand these things happen but all could have been eased with a bit more information being given and more staff on-hand to provide direction."
Pros: "The crew that showed up at the Departures counter when we all lined up to be reticketed for our flight that was cancelled the previous night was great."
Cons: "Our brand new 787 had a mechanical issue. We were scheduled to leave at 7:20pm and sat on the Tarmac until 10:45 while we waited for shuttle buses to take us back to the terminal. We waited in line for over two hours for hotel vouchers that they did not have. We paid for own our room and returned at 11am as instructed, but the plane needed a part that had to be shipped from the U.S. which pushed our scheduled departure from 2pm to at least 9pm. My family grabbed a bus to Narita for a 6:30pm flight. C'MON AMERICAN AIRLINES! COULD YOU SERIOUSLY NOT GET ANOTHER PLANE TO HANEDA?? OR AT LEAST PAY FOR OUR HOTEL?? The ground crew at Haneda was very kind but overwhelmed. Terrible experience. And it's the reason I don't fly American. In fact, KAYAK, I booked our flights on JAL intentionally to avoid American. The fact that these were partner flights on American completely and unpleasantly surprised me...also not a good experience."
Pros: "It took off on time and life was good."
Pros: "Crew was good."
Cons: "The entertainment touch screens are HORRIBLE! It can take up to a minute to get the button you are pushing to respond. It was this way on both AA flights I had (different planes).
