Cons: "The electronics ban on US-bound flights was handled poorly in Doha, resulting in multiple passes through the security check for many passengers, including two in my party. It left a bad impression that lingered, unfortunately."

Cons: "Seats were not comfortable"
Cons: "They announced everything in English and Arabic and repeated the same announcement multiple times. The entertainment is good but frustrating that it is constantly interrupted with announcement about everything. I have never heard that many on any other plane. The announcement about customs paperwork was long and done 2 times in English and 2 times in Arabic. There safety video is soooo long and again is done in two languages. It was just all too much. Besides that everything was great."

Pros: "Comfort and cleanliness."
Cons: "My screen was not working."
Pros: "Crew were wonderful, spacious legroom."
Cons: "Boarding was crazy."
Pros: "Everything was excellent as I have come to expect. The business class seat was not one of those new diagonal ones, but made a full width flat bed, so I could sleep for a few hours. Food and service excellent."
Pros: "The usual customer care, from checking in to leaving the plane, second to none. Food choice and quality excellent."
Cons: "The new diagonal seats are good, except when trying to put my feet up. The raised foot area is very cramped, and for me sleeping wasn't possible. I left my feet on the floor."

Cons: "Unannounced delays. Waited in a line, then another one. Probably just different security protocol than I'm used to."
Pros: "The Chicago flight was more than hour late so had to miss my cincinnati connection. Had to wait for 4 hours at the airport to catch my next flight- making the long journey even longer. No priority lounge access provided to make up for the delay. Qatar never getting my business again."
Cons: "No entertainment"
Pros: "***You're asking me about a flight that hasn't happened yet. I'm rating my flight FROM LOS ANGELES TO DOHA, 10/23/2016, here: Flight attendants were very good, helpful, gracious. For a long flight the restrooms stayed clean."

Cons: "The food was not as good as previous Qatar flights I have taken. Should be more meditarrean/Arabic tastes to suit the passengers."
Pros: "Attentive flight attendants, good entertainment selection, and yummy food."
Cons: "The luggage management system was terrible. We had to wait 2 extra hours for a single carry-on that we had to check in before our 15 hour flight. After a 24 hour journey, it is really inconsiderate to add extra hours to the journey. For luggage, I would give a 1, very poor rating for Qatar Air."
"Flight delayed over 6 hours with multiple changes to flight status and times for eventual departure. At one point flight was cancelled so we booked a hotel only to have the flight rescheduled to after midnight so we had to scramble to cancel our hotel which might not be refunded. Worst experience with Alaska air to date."

I was traveling to San Diego to meet my family for the weekend - I would’ve been in severe trouble had I missed the flight. Thanks Alaska!!"
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "Flight got delayed I sign up to get a text msg Incase flight got delayed, but what’s the point of getting a text when your already at the airport?"
Cons: "Boarding via bus to plane. Delays due to mechanical issues at both departure and arrival. Staying on the plane while maintenance is performed. No complimentary snacks or drinks after losing value on ticket price."

Pros: "It was excellent. They even waived the baggage fee!"
Pros: "The Service was AMAZING!!!. I will ALWAYS continue to Fly Alaskan Airlines."

Pros: "Very good flight and great price."
Pros: "Very smooth flight. Crew was very humble and nice. Will most definitely fly Alaskan again!"
Cons: "Flight attendant could've been more nice. Only using half a coke can then throwing it away. I would've drank it all."
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "Was moved to a premium seat, but since it was an international flight and i didnt have cell service so I didnt get a notification until i was at the gate. I was relocated from the rest of my party and wasnt able to communicate with them, so they were worried there was an issue with my ticket and that i wasnt on the plane."
Pros: "Flight was quick. The wifi that is allowed."
Cons: "Would have liked a complimentary meal during an international flight."

Cons: "My flight from San Diego was at 10 am. At that point I had already had breakfast. A few hours later, 3 to be exact, when I asked the attendant for a meal they said they only serve them in the beginning of the flight. Which if it was even an hour later at 11am, it would be on the earlier side of lunch time. I was disappointed that on a 5 hour direct flight, I wasn't able to have a meal that I was going to gladly be paying for."
Pros: "Great crew. Ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Two kids behind me screaming the entire flight. Announcements from crew at max volume."
Pros: "I liked how friendly the attendants were and how the pilot included us on what was going on"

Cons: "everything was cool"
Pros: "Very friendly crew, the flight was perfect. Thank you!"
Pros: "The weather in Reno. I didn't however make it to Seattle."
Cons: "I did not like the fact that I arrived at the airport at 11:15 AM for a noon flight and by the time I got to the front of the line was told that 11:20 AM was the cut off time for that flight. I do not like the fact that the ticket agent Was quite rude and uncaring and unhelpful. The Epitome of poor customer service for a terrible policy. she almost seemed to gloat over the fact that she could not or would not help me join my family for a dinner in Seattle."
Pros: "Crew and communication during/about flight were excellent."
Cons: "It is absurd to charge $40 for wifi."
Pros: "Very smooth ride and good service!"
Pros: "Fast boarding, good food, very friendly crew. Needs a little more entertainment"

Cons: "Seating in upper class is uncomfortable and bedding is not fresh."
Pros: "Entertainment and helpful staff"
Cons: "Had worst seat on plane on outward because I didn't know I could pick a seat free of charge before online checkin This could be a lack of communication on Kayak/Last Minute.com as opposed to Virgin"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive...food selection was excellent"
Cons: "Seats were really old and outdated"
Pros: "The food was good. The lane was comfortable"
Cons: "The flight was nearly full, and the 767 is a large aircraft. I think it would be preferable if Virgin Atlantic would board the plane by zones, similar to other airlines."
Pros: "Crew was great. Flight was on time and crew helped the boarding process go smoothly. It was nice to get a beer or wine at no additional cost."
Cons: "Seat was shockingly small, even for economy class. TV was poor quality."

Cons: "More leg room"
Cons: "Getting home 5 hrs later than planned"
Cons: "Nobody was sat in the overwing emergency exit row seats for the whole flight (so nobody had been briefed on how to use them) and the tray tables for these seats were down during the flight effectively blocking the emergency exit in the event of an emergency. Potentially very dangerous"

Pros: "Lots of leg room, even in economy."
Cons: "Entertainment choices were a bit sparse."
Pros: "Virgin Atlantic offers good service at a reasonable price to/from the US to London. Good food service and unbelieveable number of movies and entertainment to choose from."
Cons: "The seating and leg room in economy classic were inadequate. We felt way too confined in our seats and the leg room was a joke. I am only 6' tall and this was unacceptable. We will try to upgrade for the return trip."
Cons: "luggage never made it to Boston? Don't know who's fault it was.Problem was corrected."
Pros: "Although we were badly delayed the cabin service was excellent in every way. Good meal , cheerful staff and well turned out."

Pros: "Plane was about 30% full so plenty of room to stretch out. Friendly crew."
Cons: "Flight left 50 minutes late because they'd lost the paperwork and had to get new copies.... not very professional! I can understand a delay due to weather or technical issues but losing paperwork shouldn't happen. The food portion was very small for an international flight."
Pros: "Checking in at the counter even I wasn't allocated a seat but the gentleman was very humble and polite."
Cons: "The fact that I was told I would be given a seat at the boarding gate. I got to the airport very early to get a good seat only to be that and was given a very uncomfortable seat where I couldn't stretch my legs well because of a box on the floor situated to my left leg and to make the matter even more annoying my screen was not working which I was forced to take one heavy meant-so-called laptop. And finally cabin crew were lacking serious customer service and when u ask for something they were just so reluctant to deliver as if we were given a free ticket or something. May it be noted that my ticket was not that cheap to be treated in such manner."
Cons: "Everything about my experience was HORRIBLE."
Pros: "I loved the movie choice!"
Cons: "The head rest comfortability, could be softer as well as the pillows, they could also be softer."
Cons: "Food was hard and little stale."
Pros: "The flight crew from the mel to lax route were excellent. One was especially attentive to my 2 toddlers and gave me a bit of a break, something that has NEVER happened in over 40 flights traveling with children."
Cons: "I think something was broken in our section (mel to lax) as it was uncomfortably hot and the flight crew tried to get it cooler but could not. I’ve never experienced a flight that was too hot, usually the opposite. It was stifling."
Cons: "Service is super fast"
Pros: "The food was AMAZING. No, seriously. Everything we had was great."
Pros: "From the check in to the service on board was very good. Staff were polite and respectful."
Cons: "The food was small. There did not serve bread with the meal"
Pros: "I was very impressed by the generosity you show concerning food och drink. the staff was kind and glad."
Cons: "I never understood how to connect the earphones to the screen so I couldn't ser any movie. But - I could have asked the staff of course ..."
Pros: "We paid extra for more legroom and it was totally worth it."
Cons: "The regular seats were so lacking in leg room that I could not cross my legs, reach the floor to get my glasses when I dropped them, or even get my carry-on out. There is no way to get into the "brace for impact position" with arms over your head and head in your lap! This is really unsafe, not to mention really uncomfortable. The flight was long, so comfort would be nice! Our first flight was regular seats and I was pretty miserable and I am a slender woman 5'6". The extra 3" was great, and we had to pay more on the return trip. The FAA should be investigating seat size and safety on planes."
Pros: "A large selection of movies, shows and music to choose from. Flight crews were attentive and friendly."
Cons: "The narrow space between each rows for passengers to move from their seats."
Pros: "Hard product and food"
Cons: "Crew need to realise their voices travel and some conversations the whole upper cabin don't need to hear"
Pros: "The staff was so helpful and upbeat and somehow they stayed that way the whole 8 hour flight. This was economy btw! More good things: Comfy seat, personal entertainment screen, really nice food. One free checked bag, bathroom was bigger, (it may have been a handicapped bathroom)."
Cons: "Nothing was a problem at all. (I saved "excellent" for the things I really wanted to emphasize)"
Pros: "Neat plane, good food and service"
Cons: "The entertainment screen was very dark. To bad since there was an ample selection of movies."
Pros: "Getting to Barbados from Manchester airport is convenient"
Cons: "The light weight on a long haul flight do not work anything over four hours you need some form of comfortability and virgin got it wrong with the seats .. yes I know the industry is all about making and saving money but you also need to Remember that most of this flight you will be sat down for"
Pros: "Friendly, helpful, efficient staff on the ground & in the air. Great selection of movies, tv, music for each person flying. Comfortable flight. Great beverage & food choices."
Pros: "Staff excellent , as always."
Cons: "It was impossible to sleep as the plane seemed extremely cold and was very noisy."
Cons: "Seat reclining happens even during meal time and landing! I had to ask crew to get passenger in front to put seat back upright during meal time!!! Crew should've noticed themselves and ask the passenger without my prompting!! So annoyed!! I complained to VA too"
Pros: "Nothing - except the toilets with tabs for lifting the seat & adjustable headrest. They forgot to load our toiletries overnight pack too!"
Cons: "The 787 has vastly inadequate Economy toilets - ONLY 4! For 200 passengers. Inadequate lighting for,boarding, unable to activate reading lights until AFTER TAKEOFF = groping in semi darkness, BAD! No window blinds = woken up by blazing sun in middle of 11 hr night flight, even with sleeping pills my sleep was wrecked, even with eyemask. Passengers penned in on narrow aisles by trolleys, unable to walk around plane & risk of DVT. Passengers disempowered by restricted space, lighting, mobility. I want more control over my personal mobility &, lighting. Horrible headsets (bring my own). This flight departed 2.5 HRs LATE from JHB & the crew & cavin service was SLOW. NO requested second cup of tea brought - I waited 20 mins & climbed over trolleys to get another one, even though it was requested of cabin crew. Do they just ignore us? Or forget?"
Cons: "If the luggage fees were to be included in the price, I would have gladly chosen Emirates for its comfort at that price."
Pros: "I liked the food and refreshments and the on flight entertainment was good.."
Cons: "I didn't like the boarding process.every other flight I've been on they board plane by rows.on this flight everyone was boarding at same time which was annoying and held up the boarding process.."
Cons: "More than one hour delated"
"Charles de Gaulle airport sent us to 3 different gates and then delayed the flight by two hours, only to move it back to the original gate"
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "With flying there is nothing perfect all the time. I was able to sleep on the flight and had a place for my carry-on luggage. I wish unboarding was mad less complicated."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by 3 hours because of storms in Atlanta earlier. This caused us to miss our connection to Fairbanks in Seattle, so we had to spend the night in Seattle at our own cost."
Pros: "Entertainment selection was nice."
Pros: "The agent at the bag drop was very helpful. We had two reservations and she took the extra step to call someone and helped check our luggage all the way to destination. Thanks for the wonderful service. Flight attendants were all smiling and very friendly. A very special treat that we got two snacks each which were very much appreciated as it was an early morning flight and we didn't get a chance to get breakfasts."
Cons: "The flight scheduled was 1 hour 30 minutes late"
Pros: "Boarding was easy for a large number. Seats were comfortable. The crew was pleasant and attentive. The food was very good actually. Love the Mile High Tea!"
Pros: "Horrible storms kept us in the air for at least an hour past our scheduled landing time. And yet we experienced virtually no turbulence. The pilots did an excellent job of keeping us updated, kept things as smooth as possible with the bad weather and we had plenty of movies and games to choose"
Cons: "I was charged an extra $100 because my bag was 10lbs overweight. Where is this crazy fee communicated on their website? And why does it have to be so much? I didn't have a way to weigh our bag before we left. I had no idea it was so heavy - ridiculous price."
Pros: "Excellent crew!"
Cons: "Need better snacks."
Pros: "The seats were awful .how many can squeeze in. .horrible"
Cons: "Room to breathe, move a little"
Pros: "Amazing crew, on time, decent coffee, plenty of drinks"
Cons: "The drinks cart was a little slow..."
Pros: "No food or entertainment on a short hop of ~ 150 miles by air; I would have preferred to rate “N/A” but this wasn’t an option."
Pros: "The entire process was easy and seamless. The flight staff was professional and accommodating. Free liquor. Great food."
Pros: "- flying business was great. Comfortable chairs that lay flat. - entertainment options are amazing. Worthy of any international flight."
Cons: "- staff was not very friendly. At least one of the businsss class stewards. - Food options for breakfast limited."
Pros: "the people were Awesome!!flight crew were very personable and easy to get along with, as well as get in touch with."
Cons: "where to start, I am not a huge overweight person. I have 26-28" shoulders and longer legs then most 5'-10" people have. That said, you should not be required to hold your arm out and hold the seat back in front of you so that you are not elbowing or shouldering the people beside you. sitting sideways on a seat I paid extra for doesn't seem like a great flight to me."
Cons: "Rude to passengers and then went to the back and loudly complained about other passengers. Very unprofessional."
Cons: "Very slow to load and unload. Not sure how I always get a middle seat in the far back. Basic economy is basic."
Pros: "The fact that I was so relaxed."
Cons: "The food"
Cons: "Didn’t get our beverage and snack till we were almost ready to land at Charlotte"
Pros: "Flew delta comfort, priority boarding, extra legroom, short flight so no meal included"
Cons: "nothing bad about this flight"
Pros: "The Delta Help Desk at the airport was actually pretty helpful for the times I had to use them."
Cons: "Flight was delayed....3 times(more?) from late at night to early morning the next day. Delta Help Desk rescheduled me and got me a room at Howard Johnson’s for the night. Called HoJo’s to confirm they had non-smoking rooms available. Got on the hotel’s shuttle bus and the driver announced that HoJo was full and all voucher holders would go to Rodeway Inn but those without vouchers would go to HoJo....huh!?? Called HoJo and the same person I’d spoken to 20 mins prior said it was correct, that Rodeway was a sister property. The Rodeway Inn Metro Airport is pretty disgusting. This is my opinion after coming from remote Mexico and extensive travel in Africa. It should be torn down. Delta/HoJo should not send customers there."
Pros: "The flight crew made me feel like my daughter and I were part of the crew. They were so accommodating, professional and funny."
Cons: "I LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT MY FLIGHT."
Pros: "Delta did find us a new route to get us to our final destination after west jet booked on a flight that was already sold out ."
Cons: "We had to add on an extra connecting flight . We had to then fly from Toronto to Detroit then on yo Atlanta ."
Pros: "Flight crew was awesome"
Cons: "The flight was a Christmas gift for my mother to spend some time with her friends in Mazatlán. I heard she spent the entire day waiting at the airport as her flight was rescheduled 4 times."
Pros: "The movies were great and the boarding was more streamlined.the plane was clean and in good condition."
Cons: "The seats are getting smaller and more cramped. There still better then American but ugh. Delta's is stingy with their snacks unlike Southwest gives you two or three without even asking you have to beg for two from Delta and they act like it's breaking rules"
Pros: "We got on the plane and it went to where it was supposed to go."
Pros: "The gentleman at the gate was super helpful and helped us check our bags at the gate."
Cons: "Zero leg room. Zero arm room. The entertainment system did not function. No food for such a long flight unless you pay more then the food is actually worth."
Pros: "Efficient friendly staff"
Cons: "Kind of rough landing, but we are alive and well!"
Pros: "Crew Entertainment Service"
Cons: "Boarding on most airlines is a bit chaotic they always call out zones and often they aren't listed on your printed ticket otherwise was ok"
Pros: "Nice regional jet!"
Cons: "It was a regional jet..."
Pros: "We finally got home"
Pros: "Clean plane, really friendly staff, flight arrived 45 minutes early much to my surprise. I'm used to flying with cheaper airlines, I won't be doing that anymore in the future."
Pros: "On time great baggage retrieval"
Cons: "The flight attendants were unfriendly and borderline rude. I felt like when I asked for anything or was just up stretching my legs that I was bothering them. There was also quite bit of turbulence in the first two hours- I have traveled a lot and I felt like it took the pilots too long to find a smoother altitude."
Cons: "VERY bumpy ride- scary"
Cons: "Late and missed my international connection"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "The crew addressed me by name"
Cons: "Wasn't lonng eough"
Pros: "My luggage was lost. I reported it and they said that they would send it to Dallas where I was staying the next day. Got into a new country and city without my luggage. Had to buy clothes and toiletries at Walmart. The next morning I received I call to say my luggage had arrived. I went to the airport and indeed it had arrived and for some reason it was returned to Atlanta. After endless calls and conversations I got my luggage that evening. It was very inconveniencing. Worst experience of my life. Never again."
Cons: "Luggage issues Cleanliness of the plane The cabib crew"
Cons: "Expected to pay £30 just to reserve a seat. Most of the top airlines allow this to be done for free. It's about time that Virgin Atlantic followed suit."
Cons: "The temperature in the plane from Rhineland to Minneapolis and to San Jose was hot"
Pros: "The Economy seats with added space Plenty of space Cheerful crew"
Pros: "Gate agent was great. Smooth boarding and very attentive flight crew."
Cons: "The only negative was an older aircraft but the crew went out of their way to talk to people about setting up entertainment."
Pros: "Good flight, professional people."
Pros: "Friendly staff."
Cons: "Cabin air was very warm. Individual A/C fan was very slow. With it being a night flight, I was unable to read since my overhead light was not working."
Pros: "Manchester Airport first class. More services and convenient than JFK and Atlanta. Check in and gate staff great in Manchester. I"
Cons: "Plane change JFK. Staff with TSA looked like they slept in their uniforms. Information incorrect on wifi customs and caused delays. Customs agents first class."
Cons: "I reserved and paid for Delta comfort and ended up flying AeroMexico and Virgin Atlantic who could care less so I didn't sit comfortably, no wifi and for Virgin Atlantic I had to pay extra to get more legroom! NOT a satisfying experience."
Cons: "We had over 2 hours layover in Atlanta. After eating lunch at getting to gate B1 and waiting a while, I got an alert from the Delta app on my phone that said that the flight was now loading at A30. This was incorrect information that had several people upset. This was my first flight to use the Delta app to track my baggage. It was never updated to let me know where it was until after I landed in BHM. The app indicated that my bag was on another flight"
"I had my 2 year old and hate checked my stroller and when I got to Miami there was no crew to bring it up they told me so I had to carry a sleeping child and my carry on along with my making sure my 5 year old was with me. Then my stroller wasn’t even with my bags it was on a domestic arrivals. Horrible experience."
Cons: "No turbulence"
Cons: "This flight, along with the bulk of AA flights, were cancelled, leaving me stranded and missing work meetings."
Cons: "The entertainment s really poor And flight as delayed for over 5hours"
Pros: "Not much!"
Cons: "Flight was 90 minutes late leaving Manchester so J missed my connection in Philadelphia! After a rebooking I was put on a flight to LA but that flight was also late and delayed getting to the gate in LA so I missed the flight to Seattle"
Pros: "Prior to boarding, we had help with our seating. My wife gets anxiety and our son is three, so I felt like I needed to be there for them both. A crew member ensured we sat together."
Cons: "Everything else."
Cons: "5 hour delay missed my connecting flight because of this neither airline offers a refund or anything since I booked them separately.... Now I have to spend more $$ and time thanks"
Cons: "They forgot to plan a pilot....also the crew was 45 min late"
Pros: "Smooth pleasant flight, on time departure and arrival"
Cons: "No food. 5 1/2 hours flight and we were offered one biscotti pkg. paid extra to sit in an exit row and never offered any food even to buy. Unpleasant attitude from flight attendants."
Pros: "Terrible customer service."
Cons: "Rude, rude people working at the desks. Saw many people have problems with them, and then they were rude to me as well."
Pros: "Flights reached the destination before scheduled arrival"
Cons: "Chicago airport is a mess. It took us about 3 hours from exiting international terminal to domestic We managed to board a flight just before the gate close. Literally running in the airport. I believe there are people who missed the flight"
Pros: "This was a nighmare!"
Cons: "My flight Paris/London/Manchester?Chicago was the mos impleasant experience I ever had. On July the flight was schedule for 9...pm then delayed for two hours because of a fire, other passengers said, in London. At around 11pm, we were asked to line up for boarding. We stayed on line for an hour and fnally to be told the flight was cancelled. We were treated less than animals by British Airway. No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!!! No ACCOMODATION!!!!!!! We slept on benches at the airport. To be fair to you, I will not recommend British Airway to anyone."
Pros: "Comfortable flight except for limited leg room. Great movie selection."
Cons: "Poor leg room for tall people"
Cons: "The vegetarian meal is always vegan, I miss the dairy :("
Pros: "Plane had technical issues & we returned to gate; staff kept us informed, which reduces anxieties & American rescheduled US connector flights before we left Manchester"
Pros: "Crew was courteous Boarding was effortless thanks to the AA app"
Cons: "Multiple flight and boarding delays Aircraft needs cleaning/update"
Cons: "no inflight entertainment no outlets"
Pros: "Moved seats together, great plane and serviceN"
Cons: "Delay getting landing slot"
Pros: "Very little"
Cons: "This is not Iberia's fault but AA - when we all got to the departure lounge (not check in) in Manchester we were informed there was to be a stop at Gander, Newfoundland, to refuel. Then I realized AA had put a Boeing 757 on flight AA55 instead of the usual 767 and it doesn't have enough fuel for the westbound flight against prevailing headwinds. When I got home AA had sent me 2 emails - 1 advising me of a delay on my AA55 flight MAN-YQX (Gander), despite the fact that the schedule calls for a flight MAN-ORD. The 2nd rebooking me on a later AA flight from ORD-SGF. AA are guilty of deception here and their sleight of hand caused me 4 hours delay arriving at SGF and a night in a hotel instead of driving home."
Cons: "I booked in August with your company for a trip in December. I booked out of Pittsburgh to Philly both directions to avoid Chicago. I picked seats and also chose British Airways. What I got was my trip to Philly to Manchester with middle of the middle seats (I PAID FOR AISLE). On the way back we got a change through Chicago (which I tried to avoid by booking in August). We did get the proper seats, fortunately. I will never book with your company again. So dissatisfied ....I booked so early and to no advantage."
Cons: "Tiny plane. No leg room. No TV’s. Staff took three full rows to themselves for sleeping."
Pros: "A lot of food"
Cons: "Didn't make it clear food/drink would be included. Crappy boarding people. No movies on seats!! Super small seats"
Cons: "No wifi, no inflight entertainment, like flying in 1984"
Pros: "Half the crew was decent making up for the other half. The Asian and Hispanic woman did a great job."
Cons: "No ability to do online checkin both websites were not working. Keep the kiosks but have those helpers be able to jump behind counter to help with checkin."
Cons: "Equipment malfunction at 11 pm is always really nice."
Pros: "The price"
Cons: "We were delayed almost two hours for weather and then when I finally boarded, myself and a few other people were pulled aside to be asked new security questions and have new boarding passes printed. The people at the desk let us know that it was because we checked in online. I don't mind being asked questions but they could have done that part of the process in the two hours that we were waiting to board so as not to further delay the boarding process."
Pros: "Friendly , kind, crews"
Cons: "No good entertainment ,prefer personal t.v sreen"
Pros: "Crew was great. Boarding was quick. Food was good."
Cons: "The entertainment on a cross Atlantic flight was not family friendly. Playing 'Dark Knight Rises' and 'Guardians of the Galaxy' while my 6 year old is on the flight is not appropriate. While I didn't let him listen to the program, he could still watch violent scenes I would not allow at home. There are plenty of family friendly good quality PG or G rated movies that appeal to everyone. Would it be too hard to get individual screens in 2017?"
Pros: "The crew members were very nice"
Cons: "The boarding system was HORRIBLE, I had seats at the front of the plane but I was Group 8 on both planes. It would have made sense to have the people at the front board first instead of last"
Pros: "Great crew. Friendly and reaponsive. Easy boarding."
Cons: "4 hour flight from SFO to Charlotte. No food beyond snacks. No entertainemt options. No electrical outlets."
Pros: "Manchter to Philadelphia ok Philadelphia to sanfranscisco no good"
Cons: "I want to know we allready pay ticket why they charge eighty two doller more they no give us food nothing please give my money back next time I never bought ticket"
Cons: "We did not get on this flight because AA's scheduled it 90 minutes after landing from an Int'l flight. Why don't airlines schedule a minimum 3hours between Int'l-domestic connections. half the plane was stressing and freaking out about missing their connection even though the plane landed on time. "AA is not responsible for customs/security delays". Well, your customer service agents would have a lot less work if you didn't have to reschedule 100 people per flight. The time the plane drives/parks at the gate, you get off the plane and make it through customs, get your bag, recheck it (if need be, we didn't this time though), get through security and get to your gate, you'll be the luckiest person in the world to do that in less than 90 minutes."
Pros: "Seat next to mine was free. Ice cream was good."
Cons: "The crew looked sad at best, angry at worst. Never smiled. It looked like they felt like they were in bondage, not rude but very much like they hated their jobs. Two flight attendants were obese, the rest were just overweight, all but one unkempt, sloppy, washed out. Worst looking crew I've ever seen. I think they belong in another field. No inflight film after many attempts to re-boot system. What has happened to American Airlines standards, they used to be so high?"
Pros: "The food was okay, and the flight attendants were lovely. That's about all the positive things I have to say about that."
Cons: "The entertainment was high my list, only because you're stuck on a flight for many hours. Although I was exhausted because I had a 8 hour layover in Manchester, it would have been nice to have a couple of entertainment options. On my flight on British Airways from New York to Gatwick, we had so many movie and series options. These things are important on a long flight, otherwise the flight becomes torturous because you run out of things to do. On this flight, we had no choices, only what was given to us to watch. This made my flight unbearable."
Cons: "On the last leg from Abu Dhabi to A'bad, upon boarding the plane, my wife requested the stuardess that she could not order the Vege food online for some strange reasons and that if they can provide it to her, she bluntly refused and said if it wasn't ordered earlier she won't get it. She could have easily said that she will see what can be done. No need to be that rude for a reputable airline staff."
Pros: "Crew always helpful and polite."
Cons: "Only Vegetarian meals available for myself and many passengers. Later snacks also Vegetarian. Only chocolate ice cream. All I had to eat was the crumble in the main meal. No hot tea whilst waiting three and half hour for repairs to computer."
Pros: "Wonderful flight, kind helpful staff and a very comfortable beautiful new aircraft. I look forward to flying Quantas again."
Pros: "Equipment was an A330. I was seated in Row 11 and had priority boarding. As a result, I had considerable leg room and not trouble finding overhead space. Seating in the back has several inches less "pitch" between seats. A330s provide a very smooth ride."
Cons: "Food: Salad was good, you could taste the arugula. Chicken, once you scrape off the barbecue sauce, was decent. The rest of the lunch did not seem worth eating. The best option if you are hungry is to either eat in the terminal or bring something you do enjoy with you. The movie selection had nothing you likely have not seen already. Be aware that sometimes PHL moves slowly. We waited over 5 minutes for the plane door to open. Bags took about 40 minutes to come up. There were no lines at immigration. Connecting in less than 2 hours can be iffy."
Pros: "Extended legroom upgrade was worth it. I could actually open my laptop and got a lot of work done. Too bad the plane not have 120V plug to charge up or Wifi Arrived safely."
Cons: "- Took 2 hours to get through check in and security - ridiculous. Check in was disorganized and inefficient. People queued to use the kiosks. Firstly, there were too few kiosks, with several unused and at least one was offline. We then waited again for an extended period of time to drop of bags which should be less than 5 min. Please take lessons from Lufthansa - they really know what they are doing. This was one of the worst arrangements in the world. - One of the flight attendants, not all, seems quite bothered to serve us. I don't appreciate that. - No Wifi available - Flight was delayed"
Pros: "Service was very efficient and responsive. I was lucky to have an empty seat next to me!"
Cons: "Hate, hate, hate not having individual monitors for entertainment....especially considering that it's an international flight."
Cons: "flight delay"
Cons: "I was first sent to the wrong terminal by a female flight attendant. When I arrived at the other terminal, I had already missed my initial flight, so crying back to terminal 3 another nice lady helped me get on the next flight to chicago and from their I had to take a flight to Philly. This really made me upset as I had nursing classes the next day and I would not reach philly until 8pm that night. On the flight to philly from chicago, the plane ride was decent, the crew was nice, but their was no more over head space and I had to give my carry on for them to put in the back of the plane with the rest of my baggage. The plane was small and I did not expect this flight."
Pros: "It was exactly what I was looking for. Comfortable, easy and faster to board. I loved to be able to use the ticket on my phone as boarding pass, that made shorter the whole process."
Pros: "Very smooth flight with excellent crew!"
Cons: "There were no individual monitors at the seats."
Pros: "The air stewardess was friendly and courteous, the meal were tasty and sufficient."
Cons: "The flight came in early but we had to wait over thirty minutes for luggage to arrive."
Cons: "The flight was operated by American Eagle, on a small regional commuter jet. We had to board from the tarmac and climb a steep flight of stairs to board. Not advisable for anyone with limited mobility."
Pros: "The pilot and his crew helped me off the air craft"
Cons: "No help was available to me and I need a wheelchair when traveling now just simple no help"
Pros: "That we finally left"
Cons: "We were delayed for 3 hours with the smallest amount of communication about what was happening."
Pros: "Food was excellant, crew were caring and very attined to needs. Seats were comfortable."
Cons: "They changed our gate four times and delayed our flight two hours. Got in after midnight and wasn't able to pick up my rental car."
