Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "I was not expecting to get on a full 8 hour flight with no meal unless I pay for it. Although the mistake on purchasing a flight without meal may come from my end, this logic of having to pay for a meal is not ideal whatsoever, this should never happen, especially when going on a 8 hour flight, meals should always be included regardless! never heard of this ever in my life of using westjet for 7 years , very disappointed."
Cons: "No inflight meal, no inflight entertainment for 10 hrs onboard."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Lack of food for long haul flight. Had to pay to eat. 43 dollars and only able to pay with debit/credit card rather than cash"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Charging customers for meals on a transatlantic flight is a terrible way to nickel and dime your customers for the most basic provisions. Not all travellers carry accepted credit cards, including the woman sitting beside me. Because it is so common (formally standardized) for airlines to provide food on longer flights, many travellers assume their WestJet flight will the same and arrive unprepared. I normally love WestJet for their customer service, but these flight attendants talked down to customers with legitimate questions. I am choosing another airline for my next international flight, although reluctantly so - I hope to see some changes from WestJet for a more comfortable flight."
Pros: "I didn't!"
Cons: "Late, late, late! I was a prisoner in my seat."
Pros: "Sensible ticket price"
Cons: "Leaving Gatwick 30 minutes late had us miss our planned Halifax to Toronto. The next flight was 4.5 hours later. After a trans Atlantic, that is horrid."
Pros: "Most of the crew were nice. Captain very informative."
Cons: "It was freezing! The headphones they rented me didn’t work, or maybe it was the tablet—could barely hear the movie."
Pros: "Boarding etc was organized and efficient."
Cons: "Did not find the crew helpful or friendly."
Pros: "For a long flight, WestJet is the way to go! Many flights were involved in our vacation. WestJet stands out above and beyond all the rest. And what a relief, since we took WestJet for our in August flight to and from Europe. Simply no comparison in all the various aspects of a flying experience."
Cons: "The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing The seats are comfortable, for a tall person, the legroom is Apple, climate controls are good, the service is fantastic, everything about it! These people know what they’re doing!"
Pros: "Enough space for long legs."
Cons: "Need more variety in snacks on the longer trips."
Cons: "Haven’t yet reached our destination, it’s our honeymoon and would have hoped to have got ther by now instead of which we are having to layover in Vancouver until the next flight because of delays on first Leg of journey we missed connecting flight"
Pros: "The crew. Very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food. Pizza was bad."
Pros: "I would give the crew 10 stars if I could! This was by far one of the best flights I’ve ever been on. I’m not a fan of having to pay/rent an iPad for entertainment, and it was a bit cold for my taste(I also had to pay for a tiny blanket). However, other than those two very minor things, it was a wonderful flight. I have never flown with a better crew, you could really tell they all actually enjoy their jobs. I loved that the pilot had a great sense of humor, he told a few funny jokes after we landed(while we were taxiing) it definitely helped make the time pass faster & I honestly think it put everyone in a good mood :) I have never been more satisfied with a flight. I will most definitely recommend WestJet to everyone I know, and will be my first choice for flying myself."
Cons: "I didn’t like that I had to pay/rent an iPad for entertainment. I was disappointed that I had to pay for a blanket & that the blanket was so small. In flight WiFi was kind for expensive and didn’t work very well, it kept disconnecting and the only thing that really worked was iMessage. Having said that, overall it was a great flight! :)"
Pros: "The flight attendants were wonderful. The macaroni and cheese was tasty."
Cons: "The plane is so old that you can only use the entertainment system on your phone, which gets tiring to hold up in front of you. Even though I was on a 10 hour flight, meals were not provided."
Pros: "Inexpensive average airline"
Cons: "Pay for everything from food to bags, still better than Ryan air"
Pros: "Despite an ontime boarding, weather (thunderstorms) and air traffic congestion left us stuck on the tarmac for over 3 hours. Kudos to the captain for keeping us informed of every development and for taking the initiative to negotiate a southern flight plan routing that allowed us eventually to depart when other flights were being cancelled due to congestion in Heathrow airspace to the north. West Jet also put together a special team in Toronto to rebook passengers with connecting flights to later flights. This meant they had a new boarding pass ready and waiting for me by the time I got to Toronto, so the disruption was minimized."
Cons: "I had counted on buying my meal on the plane, so had not purchased any beforehand. Unfortunately, we ended up delayed on the tarmac for over 3 hours and they ran out of hot meals before they reached my seat row. I had to make do with crackers, cheese and fruit as my dinner. Lesson learned: always reserve my meal (or buy one) before boarding my flight - you never know what kind of delays will occur. To be fair, the crew did offer me a free glass of wine to go with it, which was a nice touch."
Cons: "Unable to hear updates from the crew. Sounded garbled"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant"
Cons: "As it was a budget flight, all food had to be purchased and the cost was high for the quality received"
Pros: "I liked the fact that boarding was a good experience"
Cons: "The fact that the plane was supposed to land at 3.35pm and we actually landed at 4:40 and for some reason we waited to get off the plane with no apology from anyone. The service was not satisfactory and they broke our stroller."
Pros: "Crew, as usual, were the best thing about this trip"
Cons: "Chairs are not that comfortable"
Pros: "Seats. Great crew members"
Cons: "Having to pay for everything"
Pros: "The basics were all up to standard, the flight was very full and because it's such a long flight it is expected to have a few discomforts from time to time..."
Cons: "TURN DOWN THE VOLUME on the announcements, it was so loud I could feel the book I was holding in my hands literally vibrating. I had to plug my ears to tolerate the blasts over the PA. I requested the volume be turned down repeatedly but it was never changed... from London to Calgary. More frequent offers for food/beverage would be appreciated, there were only two rounds made for the entire flight of almost 9hrs. It's just nice to have a bit more flexibility..."
Pros: "Very fast today"
Cons: "Man these flights are boring"
Pros: "Piot gave clear and timely announcements as flight was delayed do to weather,. In-flight crew were friendly and providing a relaxing environment. The include meal was very good."
Cons: "Plane is showing its age. Bathroom was in terrible condition."
Pros: "The economy class seats were surprisingly comfortable."
Cons: "It's a personal taste thing, but I don't like flights where it is necessary to separately purchase all the normal things that other airlines provide on international flights (blankets, wine, food, etc). I'm sure others appreciate that level of economy, however."
Pros: "Re-booked on Westjet after my WOW airlines was cancelled. Didn't know what to expect - pleasantly surprised, Great service from top to bottom leaving Gatwick Airport. Will make them my top preference in searching future flights out that way."
Cons: "Nothing - the entire experience (check-in, flight, deplaning) exceeded my expectations."
Pros: "Plane was clean"
Cons: "Waitjet did not perform preventative maintenance and had to change a tire at Gatwick delaying flight by 2 hours with terrible/late/inaccurate information about when flight would resume = FAIL Result was overnite in Toronto. Lets see how the 6:45 (3446) goes ?"
Pros: "Cancelled the flight and was utter chaos with no direction what so ever."
Cons: "Staff would not communicate with the passenger's."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Delays, poorly managed. Ridiculous solutions. A flight that last about 7:30 hours. Turned 36 hours. Bad experience."
Pros: "It was a smaller aircraft and the staff were friendly"
Cons: "was right at the back of the plane and could not hear the announcements clearly."
Cons: "ONE WAY TICKET Vancouver TO Tel Aviv was about $560 c.d -all- included. Went well 3 flights well. Ticket back from Tell Aviv took 4 flights , around $900cd . had to pick-up the suitcase each airport.., and pay for the suit case separately.."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Delays. Canadian debit card not accepted on flights even though an American debit card was."
Pros: "I will never travel with west jet again"
Cons: "Everything Staff was so rude"
Pros: "Exact on time."
Cons: "Refreshment should have more choices"
Pros: "Glad I could rent a tablet"
Cons: "Flight was delayed"
Cons: "That the fare advertised didn’t include a seat or a suitcase. Very unfair comparison."
Cons: "I don’t understand how Westjet can get away with 1. Not providing food on a flight of this length, 2. Charging for the entertainment system which has basically no content"
Pros: "Decent selection of movies."
Cons: "No meal included in 7hrs oversea trip. They had 3 services - two snacks and one coffee only.othereise, food was for purchase only. No checked luggage included."
Pros: "No Comments."
Cons: "The Female Stewardesses either conveniently did not see me sitting in the middle row seats, or perhaps had other alternative means. I felt totally and absolutely ignored, particularly when Meals and Beverages were being served."
Pros: "Friendly crew"
Cons: "Terrible food options. Sandwiches and croissants vastly overpriced: $8 for a croissant ($1) with a slice of cheese (25cents) and ham (50 cents) is ridiculous. Flight delayed on the ground for 1 1/2 hours."
Pros: "More leg space than I was used to and pretty spacious bathrooms (I'm 6'5")"
Cons: "The purchased Wi-Fi went down immediately and didn't come back up until 8 hours into the 10 hour flight."
Cons: "Poor management and customer service."
Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "Entertainment system was playing up"
Pros: "The crew and their attitude"
Cons: "The planes are worn out with the result that they often have mechanical problems. When the new promised planes arrive this will be a great service. The saving grace of the current service really is the personnel, unlike US carriers if they can help they will."
Cons: "The toilets were very dirty"
Pros: "The crew were nice"
Cons: "The gate in LGW was one of the farthest in the aiport. The flight ia 8.5 hours and the ticket is not cheap. But you have to pay for everything. Even onvboard entertainment. The only free thing is the soft drinks and that is even rationed. I flew with worst airline and for long flight they at least give a free meal."
Pros: "The return flight was acceptable. seats were comfortable. Would recommend on spending the extra $$ on get extra legroom seats."
Cons: "Flying out on December 24, the airline kept us at the airport for 6 (including 2 hours on the plane) hours before cancelling the flight because they could not get water pressure to the washrooms. We were supposed to leave for London (LHR) at 8:35pm and were notified of the cancellation at approx 2am on December 25. The only other flight that would be available would be on December 25 at the same time the 24th flight was supposed to leave. The service desk was not taking any requests for finding or re-booking flights, we were supposed to call their support number at 7am on the following day. We were offered cab fare accommodation from and back to the airport. They offered hotel stay which I passed on. They provided $60 of airport food that could only be used at certain restaurants, not compatible to purchase chips or drinks (non-alcoholic) from other stores. The coupons as compared to Air Canada, which are valid for a year were only valid for 24 hours. In the end the only "monetary" compensation I got from WestJet was 250 westjet dollars that expire in 12 months."
Cons: "You are selling tickets for flights that are not available. You are taking money from people and cheating them. You should check to make sure the flights are still going"
Cons: "Headphone jack still requires an adapter. Free headphones are very uncomfortable and don’t sound great. Just give out free adapters or change the jacks please. Announcements were super loud in the headphones."
Pros: "Very professional, engaged and polite"
Cons: "The person next to me was x and overflowing onto my area and leaning on me through the flight"
Cons: "Excellent airline. Always my first choice!"
Cons: "The flight attendants were not helpful or attentive. A nine plus hour flight and they offered drinks once, picked up garbage once and when we tried to give them garbage before landing, told us to put it in the seat pocket or toss on the floor! It looked like the plane had been trashed when we exited"
Cons: "Flight delayed, lost our luggage, broke our stroller"
Cons: "The last 4 flights with Aerlingus have all been at least 2 hours delayed to London. People give out about Ryan Air but I have been flying with them to France 2 a year for the last 4 years and I only had one delayed flight because of air traffic controllers"
Pros: "The price."
Cons: "You have to pay for confirmed seats, and the seats are uncomfortable. No free beer or wine on international flight and the ticketing in Dublin was SUPER slow!"

Cons: "Nothing, everything was exceptional"
Pros: "Ordinary flight, no food (though International it operates like Domestic Travel)."
Cons: "Boarding is extremely weird for Air Lingus. Causes problems when there is no proper order."
Pros: "Flight was fast."
Cons: "The boarding process could have been better organized. For example by seat number like other airlines do. Having everyone board at once was a bit disoriented."
Pros: "Nothing was pleasant for this flight"

Cons: "The selection of movies could be better. There wasn't a lot to choose from."

Cons: "Lost luggage!!!!!!!!! See above. The seating was a little better than British Air."

Cons: "Dirty aircraft. Almost 1 hour delay."
Pros: "Boarding was quick."
Cons: "They lost my luggage on my connecting flight from Dublin to London. And I didn’t receive it until I returned home a week later. No clothing for a week. I wasn’t offered any reimbursement. The flight attendants were rude. And the seats were uncomfortable."
Pros: "Price Staff Efficient Comfortable Boarding and exit procedure excellent"
Cons: "Lost our luggage on our way home. Worst is that it has our toothbrushes and I can’t find new ones at 10:00 at night..."

Cons: "Per usual, airline food is blah!"
Pros: "You can choose your seats without being charged and it was a very clean and comfortable flight"
Pros: "We waited about a half hour for the fuel crew to come and fill up the plane, but the staff and the captain were very nice and informed us of all updates and progress being made. I didn't even mind the extra wait! We still were able to make our next transfer and got to the airport in great time!"
Cons: "The boarding situation at Gatwick was a complete mess, they made us change the gate THREE times!"
Cons: "Everything. They canceled the flight and made us wait at the check in counter for over 4 and half hours. After that they closed the counter without helping us rebook."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "We borded Kemal time, but did not take off until an hour later"

Pros: "thr crew"
Cons: "the boarding was not by zone, it took longer"
Pros: "Seats on flights between London and Dublin."
Cons: "Unfriendly staff, poor meal offerings, delays and long check in process"
Cons: "Booked flight through Kayak. In general a good experience except that Aer Lingus did not have any record of my grandson. Despite adequate documentation the AER Lingus staff were less than helpful and unfriendly."
Pros: "Clean, comfortable plane. Friendly staff."
Cons: "Had a toasted sandwich that was very dry and a litttle overdone. Serious ear discomfort on landing"
Pros: "The Aer Lingus flight from London to Dublin was fast and easy"
Cons: "short duration in the air, no in flight entertainment or food and beverages"
Pros: "The crew was awesome and so accommodating"
Cons: "Not the flight/airline fault, but the getting through us preclearance was a nightmare"

Cons: "Had lovely pix of nice looking food but charged for it! I had come over on a BA flight that served a really nice snack b'fast. Thought it odd that same route with different carrier made you pay. I was in desperate need of a coffee, could have offered complimentary beverages."
Pros: "Their hospitality was far beyond any other airlines."
Cons: "It was too warm. The air above was not cool"
Pros: "The seat was very uncomfortable. I think it’s time for them to be reupholstered or something."
Cons: "Some food - peanuts or crackers and cheese - just something for those who didn’t know nothing would be served."
Pros: "THIS AIRLINE IS RIDICULOUS. CANCELLED ON US AS SOON AS WE LANDED IN FRAMCE. DIDNT ENJOY IUR VACAY BECAUSE OF IT."
Cons: "Two flights at the same time to same locations through unlabeled gates (up some stairs and through two doors before checking boarding passes) confused about 30 people. this was not optimal. Putting the boarding pass check earlier would remove the confusion."
Pros: "You have to put up with a lot but it’s a cheap way to get to Europe."
Cons: "As has happened to us before our extra leg roo. Seats (that we paid extra money for) disappeared when we checked in and we’re replaced with separate seats in the back of the plane. Boarding is long and very disorganized. It took over an hour to get our bags."
Pros: "We arrived only about an hour late?"
Cons: "We boarded late which seems to be the norm for Iceland air. Usually when an airline is a few minutes late departing they try and explain why and then make up the time, but we received no explanation for the late boarding, or the even later departure, or for why we lost even more time in the air."
Pros: "The attendants are all nice and efficient!"
Pros: "Always nice to travel with this airline and I will be in the air with them again"
Cons: "Icelandair attitude suck and is the reason I will not even visit Iceland now."

Cons: "No checked bags included, but this was unclear at the time of purchase, even though it was an international flight."
Cons: "Huge lines for everything,got delayed by 1 hour....."
Pros: "Inexpensive ticket. Boarded and left right on time. Small, crappy plane (757=200). It was so old, there were still ashtrays in the back of the cabin!"
Cons: "The D gate area for check-in is a zoo, and we saw more than one couple looking for the correct gate. We were charged a bag fee of $77. IF one goes on line 36 hours before you can get if for $55. We were unaware that the bag wasn't included (our bad, of course), but when we pointed out that on Iceland Air check in there was NO place that asked for bags?? They said it was our fault for not "reading the fine print". We can only check in 24 hours in advance, so WHO would think to "manage trip"...36 hours in advance?? Especially in rural Iceland which is where we were 36 hours ahead of time. We would have gladly paid the discounted rate for the bag, but no on was willing to help us with that, so we got soaked for $77 and were told to take our concerns to Iceland air customer service."
Pros: "Just enough room to be comfortable and the seats reclined enough so you could sleep. But I watched three good movies instead."
Cons: "I would have looked led a free cookie."
Pros: "Price was good"
Cons: "Made me pay for checked bag"
Pros: "Spacious and great service. I will fly Icelandic again."
Pros: "Inexpensive tickets"
Cons: "No inflight meals"
Cons: "Refreshment cam 3 hours after departure Wait lines everywhere because the plane was not ready when they opened the gate"
Pros: "The entertainment selection was good (movies) and the staff was friendly, however on the 8 hour flight, my headphone jack to watch movies did not work."
Cons: "The connector for my headphones did not work on the 8 hour flight, every other airline will provide, at a minimum, a complimentary snack where as on this flight you needed to pay for everything, seat assignments were changed (booked with a group of 6 and we were all sitting with each other when we booked it but when we got to the gate everyone was scattered. In fact, I heard a man say he was on his honeymoon and that they changed his wife's seat so they were unable to sit together."
Cons: "No free meal or alcohol. Small seats."
Pros: "The wanderlust salad is fantastic!"
Pros: "The lights in the cabin were great set up to look like the Aurora"
Cons: "Offered 1 drink and no snack. Rarely do you see the crew on their flights"
Cons: "we were delayed 7 hours due to technical hour. 3 of these hours were spent on the tarmac."
Cons: "Reykjavik Airport was the worst for lines, delays, and boarding, You are bused to and from the terminal/plane."
Pros: "Everything good,"
Cons: "No English on the notice"
Pros: "arrived in good time"
Cons: "gate change at last minute, long wait for bus to aircraft."
Pros: "Going to Copenhagen via Iceland felt like going there through the back door. I liked it. Rather go that way than through a London connection. The Iceland airport was very busy, had trouble finding the correct gate for departure to Copenhagen. I wasn't expecting to depart the plane on arrival in Iceland and be put on a bus to be taken to the airport complex. Was also put on a bus from the airport to the plane for departure to Copenhagen. I would in the future fly with Iceland air again. I was treated well by the airline personnel, and I was happy to give that country my business. Shirley"
Cons: "Very short layover, getting on plane was hectic."
Cons: "Reykjavik airport seriously under sized for peak times. No waiting areas of any size. Overcrowded restaurants, limited and overpriced stores."
Pros: "Staff was very nice and I loved that I actually didn't' have to pay for luggage. I was also offered a free drink."
Pros: "Riding in economy, the only good thing about Icelandair is the crew, beverage selection, and an okay entertainment system."
Cons: "Paid wifi is slow for work use (ex: bad for VPN) but ok for personal use. There is no free meal service compared to other carriers. The seat space does feel a bit cramped, but not the worst."
Pros: "Excellnt service, fast boarding, great communication"
Cons: "Took a while to take off,"
Pros: "All of the employees are highly professional and very kind. IcelandAir is my new favorite company for flying!"
Cons: "Everything was great!"
Cons: "No room for our carry on, because other passengers were allowed to bring on over-sized bags and multiples. No order to boarding, just first come first served. 2 out of 3 USB ports in our row were broken."
Pros: "I was worried due to the negative reviews about the airline , but the flight was on time, the cabin comfortable, the crew friendly, and the ride was smooth."
Cons: "I didn't like that they didn't serve a meal or man the flight, but that's what you get when flying a low cost carrier. No frills."
Pros: "Seats are comfortable."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was good"
Cons: "A warm meal would be nice."
Pros: "Friendly and professional staff; efficient boarding"
Cons: "No meals served even though it's a cross-Atlantic flight. I paid 10 euros for some wine and cheese. Did not like the inability to select our seats in advance."
Cons: "When we arrived at Keflavik airport the terminal was immensely crowded with several flights due to leave the US at once. It was overcrowded to the point of being uncomfortable and there was a 30min+ wait to buy food from the only shop. As a result we did not have time to grab a bite to eat between flights. My partner was subjected to additional TSA checks which I am aware is a random check and a nescessity but due to the amount of flights departing for the US this took an extra hour, and delayed our flight. I'm thankful that Iceland Air didn't leave without us but it was an immensely stressful experience that I don't wish to go through again."
Pros: "Generally well run and a pleasant experience."
Pros: "- We arrived safely. - Crew was cordial, polite and professional. - Company allows delaying flight delay up to a week free of charge, to enable tourism in Iceland (we did not take advantage this time)."
Cons: "- Reykjavik airport boarding is a mess (as always). No waiting area with seating near gates. People are standing in hallways like cattle. - Plane was louder than usual, even though we were seated near front, 2 rows behind first class. - insufficient legroom for taller people. - company charges extra for exit row seats. - no complimentary food, except for children under 12, for a transatlantic flight. - some trash (plastic bottles) left under seats from previous flight. - human waste smell from septic tank in cabin toward end of flight."
Pros: "cheap airfare"
Cons: "slowwww boarding"
Pros: "Entertainment very good - lots of good movies that I had not seen. I love that there was not an extra charge. The service on the flight was good."
Cons: "The boarding process in Reykjavik was just awful. First we had no warning that Gate D would require such an extensive wait, so we spent too long in terminal eating and then panicked that we might miss our flight. Next there was a problem boarding our plane. There weren't enough buses, so we spent over an hour standing in a cramped line that snaked down the hall in an extremely crowded airport with people trying to squeeze though us. It was really uncomfortable. The worst was the crew waited to process people and send them in to the waiting area until a bus arrived, so this added to the wait time. I think tourism is popular in Iceland now and you all need to figure out how to make your systems better. I loved Iceland but I wold seriously need to think hard before booking another flight with you."
Pros: "the flight attendants were awesome"
Cons: "Would have loved a more reclining seat for such a long trip."
Pros: "The planes were fairly comfortable, the staff great, and individual tvs good."
Cons: "Almost two hours late leaving MSP.Luggage did not get to London until two days after we did."
Pros: "Window seat, clear sky, only a few bumps. Loved looking down as we crossed over Greenland."
Pros: "The flight left on time. I appreciate that."
Cons: "Boarding was atrocious. There was a small boarding area and there were 5 flights boarding - 1 at 6:50 and the other 4 at 7pm. So many people standing in line in such a small space. It was very uncomfortable. staggering times would be so much more helpful for that small area. Also, on an 8 hour flight, you should provide some free food. Crew is not overly helpful or happy."
Pros: "Love iceland air for seat comfort and entertainment options, despite late boarding we still arrived on time."
Cons: "There was no communication in Reykjavik to our boarding area, they boarded 20 minutes late with no communication or update on the intercom. Then they just opened boarding with no communication, very strange. IcelandAir still operates in the dark ages with seating assignments, I was unable to select seats for my flight ahead of time because tickets were purchased through another ticket vendor other than the airline itself. I also don't like how all food has to be purchased even though it is a 7+ hour flight."
Cons: "Better snacks."
Cons: "Wider seating"
Pros: "nice entertainment when you use the AA app."
Cons: "Unbelievable turbulent and bumpy ride. Not AA's fault but the question was "how was the trip?" It was a white-knuckle ride."
Pros: "that it's over."
Cons: "sat on tarmac for 45 minutes! AFTER landing... unacceptable."
Pros: "comfortable seats"
Cons: "Well organized loading, consistent beverage service"
Cons: "Weather related, mostly, so not AA’s fault"
Pros: "Service was wonderful and flight pretty much smooth for the 6;5 hour ride back to Seattle. I do enjoy taking American Airlines."
Cons: "Had a 350 pound gentleman in the seat in front of me and had he had no idea of how stressed I was when he would try to adjust his to go back further."
Pros: "I had nice leg room as I was in the exit row"
Cons: "There weren’t any USB chargers which was confusing because the flight was 5+ hours long. There were no media options either, or blankets and the plane got cold."
Pros: "One nickel hostess"
Cons: "PAID FR UPGRADDED SESTS AND THEY WETE GIVEN TO LATE ARRIVALS."
Pros: "Other passengers"
Cons: "It was terribly hot and the attendants didn’t serve us regularly. The skipped us when we wanted cold water:"
Pros: "Had row to ourselves."
Cons: "Entertainment arm rest did not work, flight attendants we're not very attentive to used items left on tray s to pick up. Empy cans ad wrapper s say for 3 hours before being picked up. Middle rest room was left very dirty due to bad hygene of passengers."
Pros: "Both the departing and returning flights departed in schedule and arrived a solid half hour early. Staff was accommodating and friendly, and very helpful with me juggling luggage and a toddler by myself."
Pros: "seating assignment"
Cons: "wish the crews were more pleasant. some were pretty rude to some passengers"
Pros: "The aircratf and on time operation"
Cons: "Gate agents not following AA.com policies to charge extra fees"
Pros: "Was on time."
Cons: "Not eventful."
Cons: "No outlet and waited idle for a long time before getting to get off plane also had to walk my bag back bc there was no overhead storage space in the bins which prevented me from getting off the plane sooner"
Cons: "The bathroom supplies were not replenished. In fact, the facial tissue was empty at beginning of flight. When the toilet paper ran out, I finally informed the attendant and they fixed everything. It seems that checking on that stuff was not part of their routine."
Pros: "The flight crew were amazing!"
Cons: "Gaye agent refused to let me take my medically necessary medical equipment and meds on board. She refused to look at my Dr note that TSA had no problems with after screening. It was humiliating and horrible!! I have a video ad well as statements on the flight from other passengers regarding how she treated me it was horrible!!"
Pros: "Early for arrival!! Love that!"
Cons: "no charging station"
Cons: "We had too little time to switch flights. We were stressed and had to run a lot in order to make it to required connecting flight"
Cons: "It took a while day to get our bags after they decided to put it on the next flight"
Cons: "Dry / borderline rude staff and hostess. Dated plane. Tiny seats. But that is pretty much the baseline of airlines in the US. When will carriers start to take note from International carriers..leaps and bounds ahead."
Cons: "close it!"
Cons: "My luggage was damaged and I have yet to hear from an American Airlines representative after I was not ok with a replacement from a luggage company that did not reflect my current luggage brand. Being in the Customer Sevice industry I know this is unacceptable, I would never replace a damaged item with one that was not like the original or ask a customer to do so. I will not fly American Airlines any longer."
Pros: "Long walk and less than an hour. Very difficult for senior. No assistan e available."
Cons: "The pain from carrying bag between gates"
Pros: "Excellent crew."
Cons: "Obese people should have to declare their weight and pay for two seats."
Pros: "It was effortless... easy boarding and accommodating crew. There was a lot of turbulence so only one beverage service and no food. Would rather be safe than have crew injured."
Cons: "Longer flights should have screens in the headrests"
Cons: "Bad as above"
Cons: "Going through immigration in Dallas is a disaster. The wait is eternal. None-US passengers seemed to get processed faster."
Pros: "seat comfortable enough"
Cons: "unbelievably tightly spaced seats. Incredibly uncomfortable to have knees pushed into seat ahead - - so tight almost impossible to get feet under seat."
Pros: "I liked nothing."
Cons: "We boarded an hour early. It was at least 80° on the plane, and then everyone got on. The crew was very rude. They ignored everyone in coach."
Cons: "They cancelled the flight and put me to fly the next day"
Cons: "See above comments"
Cons: "The crew was talking very loudly so I couldn't sleep. It's a red eye flight! People are trying to sleep!!"
Cons: "2 different attendants spilled drinks all over me and my carry on"
Cons: "Never made it because first leg was canceled"
Pros: "Flight was canceled due to maintenance problem, American claimed rebooking was someone else's responsibility. I had to talk to 4 people before they rescheduled me for the next day. American's gates/terminals at LAX are also a pain--you never know if your flight will depart from the hinterlands of Tom Bradley terminal, or Terminal 4 or 6, which can mess you up with parking/security screening/scheduling. I will try to avoid flying American in the future. I didn't get any vouchers for the cancellation, either. BD"
Pros: "Great service. Lots of legroom"
Pros: "Was called ahead of time to e alerted to flight delay. But I'm still never flying American again due to the rudeness of the crew."
Cons: "We're asked at the gate to measure our luggage. We did, and while it fit, the material of the bag made it look bulky (but upon touch, it was clearly not a full bag). When we said that it fit; the woman literally just scoffed, said "no" rudely, and walked away. We were polite, so why the rudeness?!! Never again AA."
Pros: "Nothing...I had to be rerouted to Chicago to Seattle!"
Cons: "The fact that through no fault of my own, I arrived in Seattle much later than expected and my clients were not particularly happy with the delay."
Pros: "Nothing!!! WORST EXPERIENCE IVE HAD TRAVELING"
Cons: "This was the worst day we have ever had flying. Spent 12 plus hours at the airport! Got on and off planes for 6 hours because of mechanical problems. 7 hours later they canceled the flight due to crew fatigue. The customer service was horrible plane was dirty it was an horrific experience. Alaska booked us with American Airlines. I will never travel American ever again. I'm considering using a different booking site. The experience was the worst I've ever had. Kayak Alaska and American are getting bad marks from me!!!!"
Pros: "The plane was luxurious and comfortable, even in coach. Great flight."
Cons: "Out of certain food items that should have been available"
