Pros: "Prompt in trying to get passengers boarded quickly."
Cons: "This flight was delayed multiple times, however there was no announcement made until well after the last electronic notification.

Cons: "The door from the US plane was closed in front of our nose and the staff was extremely rude.In Boston the Turkish Airlines representative from the luggage transfers didn't have a clue what he's doing. It was a complete disaster. So, the 1:10hrs between Cluj and Istambul is not enough for an US flight. You guys must schedule more time so people can get to the US plane on time. The Airline is amazing, good food, good crew, great sits, but please work on this schedule because it's so exhausting to stay an additional 11 hours on the road."
Pros: "Seats were very uncomfortable"
Cons: "too expensive for flights"
Pros: "Good food and great entertainment system."
Cons: "As close as an hour to takeoff, we had not received any confirmation from the gate that we would be boarding there.

To begin boarding, people just randomly started lining up without any formal announcement ever occuring."
Pros: "Nothing everyone was rude and disrespectful"
Cons: "No one was helping or bothered to help"
Pros: "I was travelling with two cats, one in cargo and one in the cabin. The crew were excellent in letting me know how the one in cargo was doing and everyone was very nice to my other cat as well. They both came through the flight happy and healthy!"
Pros: "Entertainment and punctuality"
Cons: "I think some of your steward and stewardesses exhibits racist tendencies. I am not sure why this is so. They need to be educated that we are all paying customers and they should know how to avoid the discrimination trap."

Cons: "i am allergic to cheese and there is no other food selection. Hostess skipped serving my husband meal through out the flight unless asking the hostess. We had 1hr 30 minutes to walk to transfer flight and pass through customs and checking points . we did not have enough time .most of the time we ran to catch up the flight"
Pros: "not much"
Cons: "hostesses not so courteous"
Pros: "Unfortunately they do not use their best aircraft on this route, still good experience and surprisingly good food. On time and perfect service."
Cons: "Seats only average as far as comfort and room, and no personal screens for entertainment (unlike the route Athens-Istanbul, which is the same length as this one, Istanbul-Bari)."
Pros: "Surprised at the quality of food on an airplane"
Cons: "Wish the staff would pick up the dishes quicker that's it."
Cons: "the coach seats are really cramped--especially for a 13-hour trip; need to get rid of the buses that take passengers to/from terminal to airplane--wastes precious time with short connections"
Pros: "The flight itself was smooth . Aircraft looks better than usual ones on this route . Istanbul -lagos though with very little leg room ."
Cons: "The food is a total zero. Food is presented to human being like begged on the street . Pasta with just tomatoes sauce ? No meat , chicken or fish absolutely empty . The chicken meal had like 2 spoons of riice thrown in . Food was very unappealing . For a flight of about 7hrs it could have been better. My flight from U S to Istanbul was perfect . Meals , service ,bathrooms all good . Please they need to improve on the African route or stay off the route ."
Cons: "Noticed that you made NO announcement that you were boarding the plane whatsoever both to London and on return. NONE"

Pros: "Everything, fast boarding, good experience overall, turkish airline provides good services for very affordable price, i am pleased"
Cons: "Airport is huge, the walk to gate 701 was long, i thought i would never get there...i think they should arrange some kind of transportation to gates like 701"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The entertainment package was good."
Cons: "The food was terrible. Very dry. Warm at best. The temperature of the cabin was too warm. Passengers were fanning themselves to try to cool down. Water should have been offered more frequently. The crew was noisy as they passed through the aisles, making it difficult to sleep."
Pros: "Clean, orginzed, professional pilots"
Cons: "Too hot, few meal options"
Pros: "Crew is very friendly. The plan is very clean and designed well and fashioned. The entertainer movie is good but the not all the shows."

Cons: "I asked for sugar 3x before finally getting it (1 hour), but by then the coffee was cold and I had to request a new one and wait another 10 mins :)"
Pros: "The food was great and the movie selection was also good"
Cons: "The person who checked me in did not give my boarding pass for connecting flight and also didn't ask me if I wanted my bags for my layover stay inistanbul. Good thing I asked or else I would have been without essentials."
Pros: "All other crew was very nice, good seats"
Cons: "No wifi, FA skipped me when giving flight bag"
Pros: "- The in-flight comfort kit with slippers, lip balm, sleep mask and socks - The complimentary wines and spirits, along with anytime snacks - Courteous and patient flight crew - Good selection of entertainment on the personal screens"
Cons: "- cramped seats (but probably not any smaller than any other airline) - earbud sound quality - boarding process seemed to take a while, but again, probably not any longer than any other airline"

Pros: "Food / service / timeliness"

Cons: "Flight delayed due to late arrival of aeroplane."
Cons: "Would have been excellent but it was 30mins late"
Cons: "Lost bags"
Pros: "Generally a smooth experience."
Cons: "The seats are too close together. Charging for drinks is out of character for a good airline. Go back to free non-alcoholic drinks."

Pros: "Great crew on board. Very helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Check in staff need more customer service training."
Pros: "Crew were very friendly and helpful."

Cons: "Dublin airport No suitcase when we arrived No food. No inflight entertainment"
Pros: "Friendly people, plenty of food on the plane.."
Pros: "Quick, on time, professional."
Cons: "Shuttle transfers... I prefer direct to plane boarding."
Pros: "Don’t know how to just give a “n/a” response for food and entertainment. It wasn’t applicable because of such a short flight."
Cons: "The gal who checked me in for my flight didn’t check my baggage all the way through even though I have a connecting flight with Aer Lingus to LA. However, fortunately, the baggage team caught the error and retagged my luggage properly. By the time I realized her error, they had already emailed me with the solution! Yay baggage team!! Thank you!"
Pros: "Surprised it was as good as it was having read so much negative news about what British Airways had become"
Pros: "I was able to sleep the whole way!"
Pros: "When my flight was cancelled due to weather they got me on to another flight right away and I didn’t miss my connection. However I waited in line for an hour and a half, maybe I was lucky because I was near the beginning of the line. There was only one person for awhile helping re route people."
Pros: "First experience flying business class -- and Aer Lingus has it down to a science! Great food (maybe too much actually!), friendly attendants, great service -- and the most wonderful pods that allow you to lay out flat for a snooze, complete with duvets and pillows."
Pros: "Fine flight, pushed back on time, tarmac shuttle service"
Cons: "Kinda crummy to not get any water or refreshments on a 3 hour flight"
Pros: "The food was good and the stewards were friendly."
Cons: "The seats wwre to small."
Pros: "The staff is very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "No announcements were made over the PA or out loud at any point for boarding, except for the last section."
Pros: "Better food than on British Airways flight from San Francisco to London. More comfortable on Are Lingus than on British Airways flight from San Francisco to London."
Cons: "Let's see... Refused to check my bag because the flight was "over booked". The plane blew an engine on takeoff and then landed in Shannon, IR (150 miles west of Dublin). Once there, the airline had no idea what to do with us passengers (for 4 hours), eventually deciding to put us on buses back to Dublin. Once back there we were offered stand by flights to London, where we could try to find flights back to the U.S. (again, on stand by). When we finally got on another Aer Lingus flight (3 days later), my wife and I were asked for $80 to check a second bag. When we asked the desk agent to wave the fee because of our 1st flight mishap, we were told "Hey, you lived through it, didn't you?". Avoid this airline"
Pros: "Friendly crew, clean and comfortable."
Cons: "Luggage control was a bit off, passengers criss crossing trying to find space. I think the crew could have managed that better."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "They lost my luggage. I was with my luggage and personal belongings the whole trip. Received my luggage 2days after returning home."
Cons: "Space was so limited it was just ridiculous"
Pros: "Check in, boarding and flight all great"
Pros: "The meal was great"
Cons: "Paying for the drinks"
Pros: "The automated check in and baggage tagging using the kiosk was fantastic! Very professional flight attendants. Overall very comfortable. Great options for entertainment - and we didn't have to "pay as you go." Clearly covered in price of the flight. Same with luggage - love not having to pay separate bag charge. Much preferred over the "nickel-and-dime-you-to-death" approach of U.S. airlines!"
Cons: "90 minutes stranded on the tarmac with no explanation. Not the way you start a trip. While the fact of being stranded was out of the control of Aer Lingus, communication was not."
Pros: "Food service was good though beverage service somewhat confusing . The printed material was not available in the seat pocket."
Cons: "Isle seat in row 43 with little foot room due to a metal box bolted to the floor was not OK for a 6+ hour flight. General boarding of all rows seemed chaotic and slow as opposed to loading by higher rows first. This was my second transatlantic flight with Aer Lingus - booked 6 months in advance- where I was assigned a seat in a row in the back, row 43 and row 46 - definitely not my preference for seating."
Pros: "Why are they flight atendants. So nasty"
Pros: "The seats were comfortable, the crew was friendly and the food was okay."
Cons: "The entertainment system wasn't great. The earphones quality was quite bad and felt really uncomfortable. Unfortunately, AerLingus still has that double pronged plugs and I wasn't able to use my personal set (actually, I could but sound would only work on one side). I'll definitely fly with them again, only next time I'll bring an attachment for me to be able to use my headphones."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "Slow crew service couldn't get coffee served beyond first 5-6 rows before landing. Crew just putting in time chatting with each other. Couldn't get boarding pass til morning of flight."
Pros: "Nothing. I flew with West Jet. Their review shall be posted on their forum"
Cons: "The abrupt cancellation"
Pros: "Short flight to London"
Cons: "There was no boarding pass issued for the Lon - Ny trip. Additionally, when we arrived to London, there was no direct transfer from our landing gate to our departure gate forcing us to have to exit and then reenter. There was no ground avail to assist either. Since the dub - Lon flight was delayed, we have 60 min to get a boarding passes / re renter security / & had to run to the flight which was a mile all with a 2 yr old."
Pros: "Good attention to detail without being in your face... very prompt"
Pros: "I understand the need for rules, but delaying 250 People because three idiots check baggage and don't show up is absurd. You need to have your own people on site who can take it off. I'll never fly you again."
Cons: "Further, you did little to ameliorate the situation for those stranded. I appreciate the hotel, but air Canada, united etc ALL offer cash compensation for delays caused by the airline..you didn't even offer an onboard drink. Also, the flight to JFK left 10 minutes after we landed: you should have held that flight rather than cost us all time/money/stress!"
Cons: "Weather delays. No water except for purchase"
Cons: "Staff at Frankfurt desk rude and dismissive. Spent hour and a half there...spent hour and a half today replacing clothes. Using faulty gps as you have lost my I-pad."
Cons: "We missed this flight due to Kayak's failure to get us on any other flights to Chicago after our original one was cancelled."
Pros: "Food, service and entertainment were all good."
Cons: "Seats were a bit cramped."
Cons: "The flight from Ireland to Spain was fine. The flight from Chicago to Ireland, absolutely horrible. I will never use Kayak again. My wife and I showed up to O'Hare in Chicago to be told that the flight is cancelled. There was no notification, absolutely nothing. I was on hold for nearly 2 hours with Kayak. Once finally connected, the customer service agent, argued with us for nearly an hour saying the flight was not cancelled!!!! We googled it! We told him to look up on google, and he kept on saying we were wrong! After 3 hours go by, he tells "oops, it's cancelled". We wasted nearly 5 hours with Kayak to try and get different seats, and then Kayak gave my wife and I seats that are not sitting together. If Kayak, looked on google, and actually tried to help I would've had seats with my wife. So disappointing. Worst experience I've had with customer service and with a company. I'll never use Kayak again."
Cons: "This was the first time in my life that an airline lost my luggage. I finally got it back 2 days later but it was a very stressful experience."
Pros: "Over the past week I had the pleasure of flying Britiish Air and codeshare Aer Lingus. I don't fly international that much, but I found that there was more room than I remember. I don't think how have had such a pleasant, eager staff on both airlines. The food was okay, but still better than I expected. It is tough to serve that many people. I would certainly fly BA again."
Cons: "Not much to say here. I am a critical person but I don't think that the crew could have done better. My only complaint...boo hoo, first world problem, my video screen didn't work very well. If it was tilted just right it would work. The free head phones have really poor quality. I had my own. In the end... not a big issue."
Cons: "My movie monitor was not working and it was a 10 hour flight. Luckily, I switched seats with my son who was not interested in their entertainment."
Pros: "I was comfortable enough to fall asleep before takeoff. No long lines or waiting"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and the plane was clean."
Cons: "The rows were terribly tight (no one in my group is over 5'1" and neither of us could cross our legs). The cabin was too bright and the announcements were too frequent to be able to rest."
Pros: "All was perfect"
Pros: "Overall just fine for a budget airline."
Cons: "The dinners on the transatlantic flights were pretty terrible - probably would do better by offering something better for purchase instead of giving everyone a bad hot meal. Lost my luggage on the way home too."
Cons: "Nothing,perfect flight"
Pros: "Seats and crew great boarding was a nightmare"
Cons: "Better boarding patrol"
Pros: "The crew were fine."
Cons: "The flight left on time and arrived at Gatwick 15 minutes early."
Pros: "Arriving before the schedule"
Pros: "Flight good, crew helpful and no problem with boarding."
Cons: "No hot food and no announcement in the Airport. Limited choice of other food."
Pros: "Although a late take off we managed to arrive 3 minutes early!"
Cons: "Nothing, keep up the good service!"
Cons: "Knees pressed up against the chair in front. Being tall means an uncomfortable ride. I was not paying £29 for an emergency seat."
Pros: "The seat was comfortable when it came leg room"
Pros: "That we landed safe, there was a good choice of movies."
Cons: "The seats on our return leg were much more cramped & did not have as much legroom as the outbound flight. There were no meals available for me that did not contain cheese. There were not sufficient choices of spirits & we were only offed a drink once in the flight. I have flown with BA for 30 years now. This was absolutley the worst flight I have been on."
Pros: "Fast boarding with group number priority"
Cons: "No complementary rescteshments. You had to pay and only pay by card."
Pros: "I like that we were on time for departure"
Cons: "The speed boarding it was confusing,no one was there in the que until they called you to board then People starting to come up from the que that was already there. Speedy boarding should be exactly that."
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Good service, boarded quick and landed early"
Pros: "The plane got from a to b safely"
Cons: "The food was dreadful. Both the gluten free and regular meals. Tasteless and unimaginative. Very dodgy landing. The time of arrival given by the airline prior to flying did not take into account the fact that the clocks went back. So our pickup was delayed. Not good at 4 am"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "Friendly cabin crew"
Cons: "Long delays, little communication, stuffed into a hot bus before the plane was cleaned - not allowed off the bus, no air conditioning and kids crying whilst we were trapped for a while in the bus."
Pros: "Captain kept passengers informed on everything, great flight, helpful crew, fantastic entertainment system."
Cons: "Leg room isn’t great for such can’t a long flight and the food was not the greatest."
Pros: "most pleasant flight i have had. Crew were perfect"
Pros: "Despite all the “delays” it actually arrived on time."
Cons: "First it was on time (this morning t-12 hrs) Then it was delayed (delayed incoming flight) Then the plane changed and was on time Then something weird happend, departure was on time, arrival was delayed by 2 hours. Of course, officially there was no delay as departure was still on schedule - but “departure” just means everyone is boarded and plane door is shut, you could still be sitting on an empty stand on the tarmac for two+ hours. Complaints ensued. Captain rerouted plane. Back on time. Arriving at LGW is ridiculous - only 3!!!! THREE! Border nazis manning passport desk for entire south terminal, there must have been at least 700 people queueing. So that delay of 1 hour plus still occurred just within the airport. #ThisIsBrexitBritain #BrokenBritain #PeopleJustDoNothing #NothingWorks #AlexCruzIsACunt"
Cons: "The complete lack of help from BA staff after I missed my flight. No helpful suggestions at all when I asked for guidance. Just 'the flight is closed and there are no more seats left today'."
Cons: "I understand the flight was delayed because of the thunderstorm, but even then, the boarding process was horrible, at the airport they didn't know what was going on and people could board with no logic. It's also unbelievable that with a flight with such a delay, where we were told that at the gate that there was a limited amount of food on board, whatever was available (even water) was not kindly offered, but was on sale only."
Pros: "Nothing. Delayed. Waiting around a lot. No satisfactory explanation."
Cons: "Delays. Poor communication. Disappointment that you can now count on BA to be worse than just about all other airlines."
Pros: "My first domestic flight with BA for years yet the service imo has got even slicker and better. From check-in to boarding to disembarking and all ahead of schedule, I doubt if I would fly domestically with anyone else."
Pros: "I recently had a difficult time returning to Italy and the part of the journey handled by BA was excellent. They were kind and helpful."
Pros: "Last minute flight (booked 4 hours before departure), one way, economy, for €99 from Amsterdam to Edinburgh via Gatwick. Long layover at Gatwick (around 3 hours), but I had much work to do anyway, so time went faster than I realised. Not sure if this was the case at Schiphol, but at Gatwick had priority security queue as a BA customer."
Pros: "It got me to where needed to get to. First flight in 12 months that wasn’t delayed."
Cons: "Poor value for money. The food & drink selection (that you have to pay for) is abysmal. UK Border is a joke, 20+ passport desks but only 2 are ever occupied, ePassport gate DOESNT work (won’t eork if you have kids). Zero f**ks given. #BrexitBritain #BrokenBritain"
Pros: "Crew and drink selection"
Cons: "3/4 of a sandwich for afternoon tea beyond a joke Barcelona lounge not great"
Pros: "Nothing. Not one redeeming thing to say. What a shame."
Cons: "Everything. Massive delay, but not that much as it was JUST before the threshold (by 5 minutes), cheats. Radio failure was the excuse, followed by crew change - yeah, right, not buying that one - more like radio was fine, but crew wanted to chip off work early and avoid last flight (common tactic for a demoralised/unionised workforce). Border is still broken at LGW. THIS is Broken Brexit Britain."
Pros: "Flight was punctual, left on time and arrived in Gatwick early."
Cons: "Took 2 hours 20 mins to be offered in flight catering on a 2 hour 30 min flight. Next time will be bringing my own food and drink."
Cons: "Flight full takes longer time for boarding . But staff was nice and efficient . Lots of leg room comfortable chairs."
Pros: "The team on board is always trying their best and work hard to make it comfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for almost an hour after boarding which isn't the end of the world but to sit on the plane is worst than waiting for it. They had one disabled customer who screamed all night and to be honest, again, not much you can do about it but it kept everyone awake on an overnight flight. Would've been nice if they had handled the customer."
Cons: "Terrible catering Seat comfort horrible worse than low cost Lounge overcrowded with no seat and no food left"
Pros: "Dealt nicely"
Cons: "Not much different that cheap airlines"
Pros: "The flight was one hour delayed however the captain was extremely good in 1)explaining in details the reason for the delay (air traffic control and parking slot issues) 2) allowing us to take pics in the cockpit! It turned out to be a memorable experience! In terms of customer care, it doesn't get any better, thanks captain!"
Cons: "Delays are never good...."
Pros: "Nothing - I arrived eventually."
Cons: "Undue stress, over booked flight, lost luggage. Zero customer service. Will never fly BA again."
Pros: "We landed and I could get off the aircraft. The flight was early - although it meant my transport was late."
Cons: "Check in process chaotic and little information. Why does he in flight menu not have any gluten free options other than crisps or cake or fruit? Would you be happy with this on a 3 hr flight?"
Cons: "M&S Food menu is limited as it is - they then also run out of most items and couldnt serve passengers on a 5 hour flight.."
Pros: "The crew were pleasant and polite. Energetic, good ambassadors for BA."
Cons: "The plane was dirty. My tray table hadn't been wiped down in a long time, and the prior passenger's used flight socks had not been removed from the drawer. The pillow was laughable - - flat as a pancake. . One of the business class lavs was out of service. . This was an overused 777 desperately in need of a refurbishment. And don't get me started on the ridiculous 2-4-2 seating in business class. How does BA think it can get away with it, when competitors offer 1-2-1?"
Cons: "Very bed I will never use this service iny more"
Pros: "Clean plane, efficient cabin crew, very slick boarding."
Cons: "Nothing to make it stand out from the other providers(Flybe, Ryanair, easyJet) as all complimentary offerings have disappeared."
Cons: "Seats broken..no free deink"
Cons: "We were asked to check in our luggage as there was not sufficient space in the cabin which obviously delayed our plans of getting a train to other location from the airport after lading as we had to collect the bags etc"
Pros: "Plane left on time and arrived on time. Went up and came down again without any fuss. Cabin crew were efficient."
Cons: "Boarding took too long. Whilst I was travelling posh at the front of the aeroplane, why not fill it up from the back? I would be quite happy to be the last one on board."
Pros: "Polite considerate staff and more comfortable aircraft."
Cons: "Shame there are no free snacks or drinks on board anymore."
Pros: "Checked in online and very quick bag drop at MCO."
Cons: "Awful food both for dinner and breakfast. Choice of chicken curry or cheese and tomato pasta but had already run out of chicken by the time we were served. Menu doesn't seem to change from one year to the next.Bread bun like a rock, salad uninspiring. Breakfast equally disappointing with a dry bagel and a couple of breakfast bars."
Pros: "Considering all the delays and cancelled flights (due to fog and all London airports closing) this flight was good."
Pros: "Excellent staff"
Cons: "There is nothing to dislike about BA"
"The boarding process went very quickly, faster than I’ve ever seen boarding occur. I understand the need for efficiency, but the groups were called so quickly that there was a lot of chaos at the gate and people running through the airport. Then we all sat on the plane for a while, which seemed silly."
Pros: "Boarding was quick and the stewardess took good active care of us"
Cons: "Really by now, we know there is little reason to mask. The constant reminders and the threatening tone is unnecessary and quite annoying."
Pros: "Fast flight"
Cons: "Boarding and deboarding takes too long. If you H‑E‑B a full flight in Covid, social distancing is a joke while deboarding the plane. It was a waste of time."
Cons: "First flight delayed 30mins due to crew rest issues."
Pros: "Transportation of my pet with no issues"
Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "First flight delayed for mechanical. Put on another flight. About to take off and ground for two hrs on the tarmac. No refreshments offered on either. The only thing they did was tell us we had the right to de board after sitting in silence for 1.5 hrs. I wish I could say this is not the norm for American Airlines but they are 5/6 in the past two months for being late and having mechanical issues"
Cons: "The plane to Guatemala was the worst plane I've got in on"
Pros: "I’m alive"
Cons: "An hour late. 3 gate changes. Missed connection in Phoenix. Typical AA."
Pros: "Yes! They were helpful and nice as well on the flight."
Cons: "Mhm.. Nothing."
Cons: "You could have been on time. You could be accountable. You ruined my wife’s 40th birthday by failing to fulfill you’re end of the deal."
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Better route planning and time management"
Pros: "Flying is not fun… The seats are too close together making it very difficult to stand up to enter or exit the aisle!"
Pros: "Michael DJ was awesome! Made us laugh during the safety demonstration which was much appreciated on a long travel time home!"
Cons: "The descent down to the airport was rough. I felt it was done too quickly, caused a lot of pressure on my head and was very painful"
Cons: "Hot crowded late horrible"
Cons: "Air conditioning"
Pros: "Attentive crew, generous drinks"
Cons: "I am not crazy about this plane. I had flat beds, but the ones that face each other in an awkwardly intimate way. Also miss the places to store the things I might need/want on the flight. All I had was the little drawer."
Pros: "That the flight attendant took pity on me when she could see how flustered I was boarding and let me move up to the business class section."
Cons: "The gate agent was awful! She decided that my bag was too big to go onboard even before I put it in the measurement thing. I did have to rearrange some items - but then it fit! Regardless of the fact it completely fit on my first leg of the trip."
Pros: "I really appreciate the automatic notifications letting me know what gate my connection is at and what baggage claim I’m in. Very nice."
Cons: "Nothing that I took note of."
Pros: "Awesome all around. On time!!"
Pros: "Friendly crew, comfortable and ON-TIME!"
Pros: "Comfortable, friendly and ON-TIME!!!"
Pros: "Both flights on time. Boarding slow but organized"
Pros: "On time"
Pros: "the movie selection was quite nice"
Cons: "I have to run to get my connection flight"
Pros: "Flight was delayed. booked another flight through Dallas with a 150 minutes layover there. That almost wasn't enough as we had an unscheduled 1 hour stop in Austi . In Dallas I had to run from one flight to the next. The only reason I made was because the connecting flight eas also delayed. In rhe end we landed at SFO (instead of OAK) over 2 hours later than originally scheduled. To make matters worse, there was a backup on the Dublin grade, making the drive home to Tracy over three hours long. arrived at SAT at 4:30 PM CDT and arrived home in Tracy after 3:30 AM OFT. oh yeah, and my luggage didn't make it at all..."
Cons: "That I had to take multiple plans when I wanted a one time stop"
Pros: "Nothing good to say about AA"
Cons: "AA screwed up reservations by rescheduling flights by 3 hours earlier (done not once but two times) causing 6 hour layover. This plus an additional 2:38 delay on next flight made the journey horrible. Will never book an AA/BA flight again for intrnational travel."
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "No overhead. No crew interaction getting on or off plane. First time in 55 years no crew at door as deplaned."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 3 times and I missed a connection in Dallas so I had to get a flight with Delta, but the staff was very helpful getting me that flight."
Pros: "I feel everyone was courteous and professional in their job. Nothing special happened that was outstanding."
Cons: "What I didn't like was the flight from SAT to PHX arrived 1 hour early and their was no gate to go to. Consequently we sat on the tarmac for minutes! There was no value in arriving early!"
Pros: "The aircraft was perfect :)"
Cons: "The new basic economy fair. My tickets were booked before this happened and I was requested to pay my carry on"
Pros: "Fast flight."
Cons: "Hours of sitting without free Wifi and flight attendants that could care less. Also the small print in all of AA’s ticket deals and what they really don’t offer."
Pros: "Amazing flight..,......... Great service"
Pros: "Boarding and flight was on time."
Pros: "The flight left on time, there wasn't a lot of fuss about overhead space and we arrived early."
Cons: "They didn't offer any snacks...no pretzels or cookies."
Cons: "air conditioning did not work well. heat was coming into the plane from the windows."
Pros: "The punctuality of the boarding, take off and landing of the flight!"
Cons: "When I came up to have a seat assigned, the representative could have given me a better seating, not necessarily a First Class ( as they were available AND I checked in as an Active Duty Army Officer) but instead assigned me a seat at the rear of the aircraft! Horrible, if that's how AA treats their dedicated service members!"
Pros: "Overall flight was great. Crew, pilot, flight attendants, boarding, everyone and everything was great. Water and orange juice was offered even for a 45 min short flight."
Pros: "Punctuality and clean plane"
Cons: "That I bought a ticket for British Airways and found out that American was my carrier to Dallas as well as Paris."
Pros: "Flight staff was friendly."
Cons: "Flight got delayed. I was a little worried I wouldn't make it to the connecting flight."
Pros: "The seating was good."
Cons: "Even though the weather caused issues, i felt that we were treated poorly. I wound up having to sleep in an airport. Never had to do that before. There was no empathy for our situation whatsoever."
Pros: "I am going to miss the old MD80's when they are gone."
Pros: "Flight much better organized, seat more comfortable"
Pros: "Clean, friendly"
Cons: "The first leg of my flight left an hour earlier than scheduled, and I was never notified. Fortunately I found out when I went to "check in" the night before, and was able to arrange for earlier transportation to the airport."
Pros: "Quick load, full flight, courteous crew."
Cons: "As the norm, American Airlines once again did not have their numbers prior to departure. Upon arrival American Airlines did not have a gate readily available for us. This caused a delay in arrival and a delay in departure. American Airlines is renowned for this type of treatment. I had hoped it would improve when US Airways had acquired them. Unfortunately, such is not the case. You can do better."
Pros: "I liked how the flight was on time and how the flight was not overbooked. Over the past year I have had ad experiences with flying so much so that I thought the airlines did not value its patrons schedules and plans; it was all about getting our money. But American Airlines has restored my faith in the Airlines. Thanks!!!"
Cons: "I liked everything"
Cons: "Flight from San Antonio to Dallas had an excellent entertainment selection and entertainment system, despite being an hour flight, but the flight to Madrid was far more lacking."
Pros: "There was entertainment on the flight"
Pros: "Boarded fast, left gate fast, crew great"
