Cons: "They were delayed. They wouldn't let us keep our checked sized bags which slowed us down even more. Our next flight left without us while we were waiting for a gate to open so we could get off the plane. There were no more flights so we had to fly to an alternate city and rent a car to get home."

Cons: "Not much- pretty great flight"
Pros: "The flight was very good, no complaints, good service and we flew on schedule"
Cons: "We were split into two boarding groups, one for priority and one for everyone else. This was good but the priority line was just a bit too far away for the announcements to be heard. This added a little bit of confusion. This was at gate B36 at JFK Airport's Terminal 4."
Pros: "Nice plane staff"
Cons: "Very hot airport. Having to load plane outside (hotter on tarmac). Then Delta being 3.50 hours late. Sitting in a hot airport for 6 hours. Not my idea of fun"
Pros: "Lots of water"
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: "no vegetarian option in business class therefore nothing to eat for me for whole flight. also sky lounge very poor"
Pros: "The crew was gracious and accommodating."
Cons: "The plane showed wear and tear. We paid for delta+ premium economy and an exit row. The seating map online was misleading and we ended up next to the bathroom. The exit row food tray was broken and was hard to even sit a good tray on. The emergency exit door isn’t well insulated and we were absolutely freezing cold the entire flight. The seats were hard and uncomfortable. The food was not good for international travel. Overall I was very disappointed in this flight. I travel the world and on long hauls the planes need to be cleaned well and seats in working order."
Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "Seats are too crammed and uncomfortable."
Pros: "Great friendly crew"
Cons: "Seats are getting smaller, expensive food"
Pros: "The movie selection is very good"
Cons: "Both boarding the flight and getting off the flight were severely delayed. The flight attendants also seemed to ignore half the plane when handing out drinks and when picking up trash. I had to flag someone down after they had simply walked past my row both times."
Pros: "Gate personal kept us notified about flight delay. Flight crew was very positive on plane and they were as miserable about the delay as we were. Snacks and drinks were brought out. The gate crew keeping us updated is what saved the name of Delta. If she didnt do that people would have been angry."
Cons: "Flight was supposed to depart at 0730. Actual departure was 1045. Three out of seven of the flight crew were not happy about how badly they were being treated by call center and /or management while they were delayed with us at gate. Snacks were brought out because of delay but they were just junk food. Nothing I could eat due to allergies."
Cons: "I booked through kayak and received an e-mail saying "you're booked!" with a flight itinerary and everything and then I got to the airport and they told me I had no ticket to get on the flight and no payment had ever been made and that to get on the flight I would have to pay over $1000 for a seat !!!! The original ticket I bought was under $400. I was NOT happy with this at all - Kayak screwed me over and I expect compensation."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Very uncomfortable seats that are far too close for tall peolle"
Pros: "Boarding went smoothly. We were on time. Attendants were excellently friendly and efficient. That is so nice to not have a grumpy flight attendant. Drinks are ridiculously priced, but I wasn't suprised. Great flight."

Cons: "No complaints everything was great."

Cons: "At tge airport in Santiago it was not clear in wich lign I had to wait to check in. I stood about 30 minutes in the wrong one"
Pros: "I love this airline! Service, planes, food."
Pros: "I'm so glad that food was served with reusable metal utensils and that the blankets provided are reused, too."
Cons: "LATAM could do a lot for the environment by recycling bottles and cans from beverages served during the flight."
Pros: "I LOVE that LATAM does not book its flights solid: I love that they leave some empty seats and breathing room-- it makes all the difference in the world. I love that the bathrooms have full length mirrors, hand towelettes, and are well maintained. Most of all, I love how compassionate,patient, and accomodating the flight attendants are."
Cons: "I would have liked for there to be more vegetarian choices-- healthier foods, more veggies, more fruits, rice, less meat. It would be nice to have real milk or cream instead of powder for the coffee; and honey instead of sugar."
Cons: "Comida, al llegar a mi ya no habían opciones."
Pros: "The crew was awesome, very friendly and polite. The flight was smooth."
Cons: "I don't like that you have to pay for a cup of coffee. I understand that for a sandwich or a muffin, but a coffee... come on dude."
Pros: "Service was good... brought me a second meal after first dinner wasn't filling enough. Excellent entertainment system with tons of new hit movies I wanted to watch"
Cons: "Not super comfortable but that's typical for these flights. Waiting a while at baggage claim."
Cons: "I have to pay for the food with no actual discount or lower price ticket. and the sits are even more tight than before."
Pros: "Despite being closed out of my flight, LATAM made it relatively inexpensive to change my flight to the next day. But, flying on other airlines out of Santiago, there is really no need to close the flight one hour before flight time. This is a LATAM policy only. I should have been on that flight. My return flight was delayed 3 hours. Go figure."
Cons: "Arrived 50 min before flight, but it was closed and was forced to pay a change fee and arrive 2 days later to Easter Island. There was still plenty of time for me to make that flight, but LATAM's policy of closing flights 1 hr before flight time really screwed me."
Pros: "I like the fact that LATAM is part of the One World alliance"
Cons: "The check-in process was chaotic and they have lost my luggage even though it was a direct flight."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Didn't even offer water, this on a 3 1/2 hour flight, took too long to board, too long to get off...they sold food on the flight, they seemed to cater to whomever wanted to buy food, & like I said offer water to the rest of us. Just an overall horrible flight."
Cons: "No complimentary beverage service I.e. Water or food. On a three hour flight, that is totally unacceptable."
Pros: "Overall I love the professionalism and customer service of LATAM. The interior lighting of the aircraft makes a big difference. The staff is always super polite and friendly. It's my favorite airline."
Cons: "On a 10 hour flight (LAX to Santiago Chile) they should offer more snacks and drinks for people to help themselves to in economy class. Other airlines have water and juice available I felt like I was bothering a crew member every time asked for a glass of water, when I could have just helped myself. Also, maybe have a few light snacks available. After a very light lunch, 8 and a half hours is a very long wait till breakfast!"
Pros: "The fact I never have to fly this airline again after today"
Cons: "Without a doubt worst flight experience I've ever had. I'm still in Miami airport after the flight was delayed 14hrs. This is the riot cene from the gate last night https://twitter.com/scrollinondubs/status/851640677595271168 airline never apologized nor explained situation. Sent cops to the gate instead to control the angry mob. Awful awful experience. Will never fly again"
Pros: "Service is exceptional. Most polite staff ever in my flying experience and I'm 28 and have take over 50 flights in my life."
Cons: "-That we needed an app to watch the media. -Seats are smaller than some longer flights, but honestly they were fine. -Boarding takes a while, but I'm not sure there is a good solution. I did like how we loaded the front and back of the plane simultaneously. Good move!"
Pros: "Very friendly staff. Specially crew leader Sandra"
Pros: "The crew was very attentive, and the meals where good."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1 hs. which happens, but still...not the best wat to start. The in flight entertainment was only available to those who had a smartphone, tablet or laptop (otherwise there was 1 screen overhead, every other 4/5 rows of seats, playing 1 movie) the problem was then, if I wanted to watch something I would have to drain my phone's battery, and there are no USB ports to recharge, so by the time we land I'd have no mean of communication, that didnt sit well with me."
Pros: "While my flight attendants were all fine and everything was very good, my daughter flew w/ LATAM 3 days later than us and her experience was good on all flights except from Lima to Rio de Janeiro."
Cons: "It was all very good on the flight TO Lima. No problems."
Pros: "Nothing stewardess mskstewardess"
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "Friendly people and good service."
Cons: "The only bad part was it took nearly an hour to get our luggage. Other flights with LAN seemed more reasonable."
Pros: "Everything was seamless. Glad they are not on strike like Sky!"
Cons: "Everything was fine."
Cons: "Leg room nonexistent."
Pros: "Efficient with good snacks. USB charging plug was a plus."
Pros: "My baggage was delivered on time, really good enterteiment, coke in cans, internet on board."
Cons: "The sits where old and grey, like dirty color. On the middle of the night, a guy smoked inside and the tabaco smell was really strong. He was admonish by the crew but nothing else, toilet was a little bit dirty."
Pros: "Dreamliner is awesome"
Cons: "I am very tall and luckily I got an emergency exit seat. If I had a regular middle aisle seat, I would have been miserable. Also what is with the thimbles of wine? Poor a real glass! The flight is 11 hours. Be more generous with the water. I go to the galley to get a glass. The crew pours me a small cup when I need about liter for 11 hour flight. When I ask for a second glass of water the flight attendants look at me like they want to call the sky marshals. Here is an idea: leave bottles of water and cups out and let people self serve."
Cons: "We were over an hour late taking off from Punta Arenas, with no explanation, and then had to debark at Santiago into buses to be driven to the terminal, taking even more time. The luggage did not come off the plane in a very timely fashion, but the WORST part was trying to make a now rather tight connection to Miami. Totally unhelpful, uncaring staff with little English in the terminal. I had everything I needed for a boarding pass: flight number, flight time, even a gate number, but they effectively wasted all the time I had to make the next flight, with little explanation as to why. How inefficient and wasteful to then have to put me in a hotel, with meals and transfers, and to rebook me for another flight!"
Pros: "Always a pleasure to travel to someplace for the first time. LAN provided access to the VIP lounge which made the experience at the Lima airport very nice. Aside from that the experience was efficient and as expected."
Cons: "There was a LAN strike at airport. No manager from LAN, nor airport came forth for over 2 hours to talk w/ passengers. 8 a.m. flight left at 2 p.m. No apologies given."
Cons: "24 hour delay, second flight returning delayed AGAIN, lost all my luggage and was never returned."
Pros: "The stewardesses were WONDERFUL...so helpful and concerned."
Cons: "Flight delayed 7 hours departing JFK"
Pros: "On time, easy process, made announcements in English , good entertainment"
Cons: "Seats are very close together, minimal leg room, not great snacks"
Pros: "The LAN airline staff is the friendliest staff. They were all smiles and went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. Compared to an American Airlines flight I took on the way back, which was not pleasant at all. The staff really made the flight."
Pros: "The plane was very uncomfortable and there was a 4 hour delay for no obvious reason making the total trip over 20 hours of traveling. Will us Aerolines next time."
Cons: "The seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The entertainment was good for such a flight. Boarding was fast."
Cons: "Food was very basic; neds to be improved cosnideing it is international."
Pros: "Travelling with a toddler is not easy, but LAN made us feel welcome and relaxed. Love their in-flight entertainment and aircraft overall. Cabin crew is very professional and look the part."
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "The flight and in-flight service were excellent. The LAN support before and after our flight to Argentina has been very good. We are returning early because of a family emergency. LAN processed our change quickly after the initial request was registered. Overall LAN is a great airline."
Cons: "We were supposed to hear back within six hours after we were assigned a request number for our change of flight. We never received a call or an email and had to follow up ourselves after waiting most of the day for a call. Once we got through the change was processed quickly."
Cons: "Airlines does not communicate well internally or with passengers. Was at the airport for 6 hours waiting."
Cons: "They lost my luggage. It has been almost 3 days and I still haven't received it."
Pros: "There was enough room and the food was excellent on the way to our destination. Love that we could pick what we wanted to watch on the international flight. Free snacks and drinks on the national flights."
Cons: "The food was greasy and tasteless on the way back though and all the small national flights had LAN entertainment which was much to be desired. The domestic flights also had less sitting room."
Pros: "All fine"
Cons: "Food and leg space were terrible. Flight to CUN didn't have individual TV screens and departed late."
Pros: "This is what an airline should be like in the US - 1 bag checked without fees, food - snacks and light meal (even on short flights), LEG ROOM, reasonable airfares. Thankfully I live near a Canadian airport. Greedy US airlines with its no-service-unless-you-pay could take a lesson."
Cons: "I am completely satisfied with the airline and its services."
Pros: "Aeromexico’s service during check in and boarding is the worst I’ve experienced so far. They are so unorganized that wait lines are so long and can take hours that you can easily miss your flight. The staff is just around not helping at all, not doing much to put order and make lines move faster. It’s not the first time this happens to me, it’s just the way they operate and not setup for busy travel days."
Cons: "Make it to the airport 4 hrs earlier, 3 is not enough at least at the Mx city airport"
Pros: "The food is terrible no choices you can tell nothing is fresh they did not even have enough white wine"
Pros: "Comfortable plane."
Cons: "Boarding, it was organized chaos with having to show your passport verification then get in another line to board."
Pros: "The flight was fast and with no delays"
Cons: "They charged me extra 14 USD for checking in, I had never being charged extra for that."
Pros: "The food, the customer service experiencie ,this airlline is the best!"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Seat space is miserable"
Cons: "24hrs in advance, the flight was delayed over 6hrs"
Pros: "The flight from Vancouver to Mexico by Aeromexico was cancelled. I was assigned a different flight at 6am the next morning and we could not board in the last minute when we were at the door (it looks like the flight was overbooked)... Finally we are in Lima but our luggage is lost."
Cons: "Please let me know what can we do.. Is there any kind of compensation we are entitled to after going through all this..."
Pros: "Wifi on bord, staff"
Cons: "The seats were the most uncomfortable seats I have ever sat on for a flight. Definitely needs improvement for a better flight experience."
Cons: "I got singled out by a staff member to request me to check my bag while the passenger behind me had a bigger carry on bag. My other 2 friends had carry on backpacks about the same size as well but they didn't get stopped. I didn't know why I got picked on."
Cons: "Thank you for excellent trip"
Pros: "Everything was ok except the audio"
Cons: "I could not use my earphones because the entry was blocked. You should get it fixed. Seat 23D"
Cons: "Very happy, excellent!!"
Pros: "We were able to get emergency aisle seats. We are 6’2 and 6’4"
Cons: "Flight was supposed to depart at 11, didn’t depart until 3. No pillows, no blankets on overnight flight. Speakers on plane not working so couldn’t hear announcements. Landed 30 minutes later than was told. STILL sitting on runway 15 mins later waiting for a gate."
Pros: "Boarding lines were long, but allowing boarding from both front and rear of plane speeds things up. Small breakfast snack served on flight was nice and appreciated. Pleasant crew members and a nice quiet flight!"
Cons: "Tight seats are tough, but I guess passenger comfort is a thing of the past."
Pros: "They serve some food"
Cons: "Charge for bags Left late"
Pros: "I enjoyed it"
Cons: "Good overall service"
Pros: "Overall, my flights with Aeromexico were smooth and comfortable. I especially appreciated the airport staff allowing me to load a zone ahead of my assigned zone so that I could easily get my viola in an overhead compartment on the plane. Lots of points earned there, thank you!"
Pros: "On time. Good entertainment"
Cons: "Food too salty"
Cons: "I thought I had paid for my bag only to arrive at the airport and be told it was not paid I had agreed to one price and was charged another and on top of that to have to pay baggage fees. I will not be using your service again nor recommending your site."
Pros: "I like the staff, the seats, the entertainment"
Pros: "Es un viaje largo y estuvo muy bien la comida y la atención"
Pros: "Todo muy bien"
Pros: "Overall great experience."
Cons: "Aeromexio did not include my name in the passenger list. And it cost me 2 hours detained upon arrival in Portland"
Pros: "my bag came back to me without many of my belongings. thanks for hiring such standup folks, aeromexico."
Cons: "The person in Aeromexico balcony didn't have training to attend clientes in the best way. She didn't know how to add miles to my number of fidelity and she told me that she can't change my seat to the aisle, because the sistem was not working and her english was very poor too... Very poor service."
Pros: "Seat was good."
Cons: "No snack. No food offered during the flight. Only juice and water offered during more than 5 hours of the business class flight. Strange smell continued during the flight. The simplest service in my experiences of Business class flights in the world."
Pros: "We missed our flight to Bogota because Immigration was so understaffed. They were warned by Aero Mexico the day prior but chose to do nothing. Now we are having to pay for a second hotel and second flight from BOGOTA to Barranquilla. There are a lot of very angry and disappointed travelers today. We have been offered nothing and received nothing. And we loose another day of Carnivale. I won't be flying through Mexico city anytime soon. Kerry Greenlees"
Pros: "Well organized boarding and time efficient"
Cons: "Food mediocre"
Pros: "Everything. The plane 787! Cuauhtémoc beautiful plane inside and out. Great service. Impeccable landing as usual with Aeromexico pilots! Thank you."
Cons: "The flight was delayed over 2 and a half hours, missed our connecting flight in Mexico City. The in flight entertainment stopped working half way through the flight, didn’t work again. Bad customer service, didn’t even apologize"
Cons: "There was a 5 hour delay which caused me to miss my connection. After standing in line for 3 hours, They did not get me the same day flight and put me on a Latam air flight and asked me to take the bus to terminal 1. When I spoke to the person on Latam air they said they don’t have a ticket for me and sent me back to terminal 2 via a bus where Aeromexico desks were. I stood in another line for 3 hours! Then they told me there is no flight and they will put me on the next day flight. However they did not provide any help or accommodation for the night I had to stay in Mexico which felt very very unsafe to me."
Pros: "The lights went out so you could sleep"
Cons: "The check In process took an hour for no reason. I can only assume the staff were new because everyone who went on strike recently got fired or quit. That or they were on permanent siesta because the line ups weren’t even long. They were just slow, lazy and lacked knowledge."
Pros: "liked the seat and the space. a blanket provided without asking"
Cons: "Stated "free wifi" on plane by the door entrance. But once seated and trying to log in. You have to pay. So it is not "free" In my opinion that sigh is false advertising."
Pros: "The best seats I have ever had in coach. I am 6’3” and had plenty of legroom. Wonderful seating!"
Cons: "Main meal very bad, tasteless pasta with a dry bun, no butter, no salt and pepper and pudding for a side. Pudding? Really? Probably the worst airline meal I’ve ever had."
Cons: "NOTHING Ok...."
Pros: "Excellent flight. Flight attendants were friendly and helpful, For airplane food it was on point. Smooth flight and no delays. Clean plane."
Cons: "There wasn't anything I didn't like about this flight."
Pros: "Good entertainment Good crew"
Cons: "They should not advertise hot breakfast, I was not able to tell what they served,wether it was cereal or scrambled eggs,green leaf substance was not edible. Coffee was cool coloured water. I ate the fruit and yogurt only Passengers should be warned about the poor food,so that they can get something before boarding."
Pros: "Courteous and service oriented."
Cons: "There was only 1.25 hours to connect in Mexico City and the originatng flight left 25 minutes late. Wouldn't have been an issue but baggage delivery in Mex. D. F. was quite slow. First bag arrived quickly enough but second bag was delayed almost 15 minute more before appearing on the caroussel. Going back through securuitY was slow despite a special line for connectin passengers. Result-- missed flight by about 10 minutes and reschedule was for a flight 3 hours later. Luckily, bags never made it onto original flight so arrived with me on later flight. Inconvenient but understandable. Mexico City requires more than an hour (at least 1hr and about 40 minutes more) to make connections."
Pros: "People in Mexico are very nice."
Cons: "The Mexico DF airport us very crowded and you will be delayed. Avoid it if you can."
Cons: "They cancelled our flight, sent us to another flight, downgrade included since we had to go in tourist even we pay business. Our original Vancouver flight was also delayed for 3 hours, they could put us in another airline but simply did no d anything even we asked for that. At the end, they did not know hate in México, airport screens si done thing, airiline information was another thing."
Pros: "Price! And aervife"
Cons: "La aerolinea nondeja documentar ni una maleta en viaje internacionaybesones fuera de lanley ybdijeron q estan amparadoos a esa ley"
Cons: "the only food served to us during the fly was a breakfast which one was the combination of black beans with eggs which was rotten and smelling very bad ...."
Pros: "The food, crew, and level of comfort provided"
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to weather. That is understandable. However the crew was not helpful in sharing any information with customers about changes to connecting flights. Much time was wasted and I had to reschedule my flight. The staff members that booked my hotel and my new flight were short and brief and not very helpful or accommodating or informative. Overall I didn’t not feel like a welcomed guest and I do not feel enough compensation was offered for such an inconvenience. Not being able to have my bag overnight was a hassle. I had no clean clothes and had to throw out my contacts because I had no solution. I also couldn’t use the meal voucher they gave me because everywhere in the airport was closed by that time. No stipend was given for toiletries or food delivery. Very unimpressed."
Pros: "The choice of new movies!"
Cons: "On my side crew lady was almost rude, for sure not friendly nor smiling. A lot of space for improvement there."
Pros: "Crew was good. I slept and they didn't bother me."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and crew was friendly."
Cons: "I was extremely uncomfortable sitting in that seat. I injured my tail bone about 4 months ago and I thought it was healed at this point, but those airplane seats made all the pain come back."
Cons: "Things are getting smaller, we're paying more for less and less; it's all reducing except the cost. Generally flying is no longer 'special' it's kind of routine, like cattle herding--and the customer is the cattle."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The airline brought out some snacks for the passengers after an hour or so."
Cons: "There was a mechanical failure. We all had to deplane. The flight was delayed longer than the travel time to the destination."
Cons: "The airport experience was horrible. American Airlines did not have enough personnel on duty to process all the waiting passengers."
Cons: "They should let you know, at booking time, that seat 35J is smaller than the rest of seat in Economy class"
Cons: "American airlines conection left us behind. Have to wait 24 h for next flight in Dallas Airport DFW with no assistance of any kind, because of "weather conditions". It a shame, never again American Airlines."
Cons: "We lost the conection because pre departure there swas an issue with one of the wings of the plane and took about 30 min. Afterwards after landing the plan had to wait another 15 minutes waiting for the gate. American Airlines atributed the issue to weather conditions in Vancouver, false."
Pros: "The agent at checkin was so kind, nice, professional and superb...I will always fly American Airlines....you have the best checkin agents, best gate agents (super funny yet professional) and also the flight crew was absolutely amazing!"
Cons: "baggage claim in Costa Rica is terrible service...but that is the airports fault since this happens with other airlines.....something has to0 change!!!!"
Pros: "The crew seemed nice"
Cons: "It is not the airline, I just had screaming kids beside me and behind me for 5 hours"
Pros: "This was Japan airline and the crew were very respectful and responsive and food was amazing"
Cons: "The entertainment selection could have been better"
Pros: "The crew was amazing! And the seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The over weight passenegers need to keep their arms and elbows, within their seat space. And not been inconsiderate and turn a light on at night, while they are sleeping and the other person next to them, is not, because of it!!"
Pros: "The plane got us there safely."
Cons: "The crew was basically useless. They hung out in the back not really paying attention or just in the way. One stewardess knocked me in the head when passing through and didn’t even apologize. No one greeted or told goodbye at the end."
Pros: "Friendly staff made people feel safe even during turbulence."
Pros: "The most efficient boarding process I've ever experienced."
Cons: "The crew seemed to be under a lot of tension and the audio jack to my in-seat monitor didn't work. After mentioning the faulty system to the crew I had to find a new seat by myself and there was no follow up."
Pros: "Quite hospitable On time."
Cons: "The coffee was horrible."
Pros: "The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Far and away the most uncomfortable and worst value-for-money international flight I've experienced. This plane is so old it should be put in a museum. The warm food was terrible and the non-hot food was completely frozen so even if I wanted to eat it, this wouldn't be possible. Individual seat in-flight entertainment screens have been the norm for many years, yet this plane had the community-style in-flight entertainment. Half of the time, the screens weren't working, which just made matters worse. The total lack of legroom and chair ergonomics made getting comfortable nearly impossible. I was literally in pain sitting in these seats. I live in Prague and visit family in the US often. This was my first experience with American Airlines' newer direct flight option from Prague to Philadelphia; based on the extreme discomfort of the inflight features and to top it off it was the highest price I've paid for a flight back home...(total lack of value for the money! )I would go out of my way to make sure I never take this route again."
Pros: "Good food onboard and very comfortable seats"
Cons: "American Airlines postponed my flight for 12 hours without a concrete explanation. After complaining they offered for us to travel with Latam but my luggage wasn’t transferred to the other flight. I arrived more than 12 hours ago and I’m still waiting to hear from them."
Pros: "On time, nice plane"
Cons: "Realized I left my iPhone in pocket of my seat as soon as I exited plane - spoke to gate agent within 1 minute of leaving plane and she Asia she would get the cleaning crew to look while I waited. Waited 20 min only to hear a bunch of lies about how they asked the flight attendant to look but she couldn’t find it - should have just walked back on plane to do it myself. Was told to “go online” and file a lost and found report. This is a small airport - TRI cities TN - absolutely zero customer focus by and American Airline employee - and I asked to sp all with a supervisor and manager with the hope I would get my phone back. Worst service and zero caring attitude I’ve dealt with - and I fly a lot. It will be Delta from here on out. I went on line and filed a complaint and lost and found report - am betting a large amount of money I hear nothing other than an automated reply."
Pros: "The nice and helpful American Airlines ticket agent at our gate that helped me fix my seating issues."
Cons: "Your booking does not automatically reserve our 2 seats together so I find out at the last minute and have to pay for an upgrade to fix it. Not thrilled! Plus I booked with BA for a reason so it would be nice to know at booking that they will contract with AA."
Pros: "High end entertainment system."
Cons: "Didn’t like the food. Could be better comparing to other airlines. There was no film that I wanted to see..."
Pros: "The movie and TV selection was excellent"
Cons: "Interrupting my movie several times. Stop that. I understand when it’s a seat belt message, or landing. Don’t make me listen to the pilot drone on about the weather. It’s 2018. I can check that on my own"
Cons: "The food is very tasty, but AA has not changed the menu in at least one year."
Pros: "Clean plane"
Cons: "No food"
Pros: "Video entertainment not working for my whole row."
Cons: "Very cold airplane"
Cons: "3 hour delay and much confusion. In and out of aircraft."
Pros: "I like the food."
Cons: "Japanese shows without eng subs."
Cons: "3 hours stuck on the tarmac before giving up on repairs and switching aircraft"
Pros: "The aircraft was newer and the flight smooth. The pilot kept us updated on potential turbulence, which was comforting No one knew if Charlotte was going to get a gust from IRMA. The flight attendants were also friendly which isn't the case on some airlines."
Cons: "Cero entretaintment"
Pros: "Crew was great, boarding was efficient"
Cons: "The planes are very old, for a transatlantic flight to have monitors showing one movie in the middle of the plane is ridiculous. Even my 2 hours Delta flight had personalized screens and entertainment on demand. Really disappointing especially on return as we flew 8 hours during daytime"
Pros: "The boarding process was good."
Cons: "Don't think the flight attendant should hang the trash bags in front of the passengers faces in the aisles to collect trash."
Pros: "smooth check in and boarding etc"
Cons: "Wifi wasn't working so no entertainment"
Pros: "Nice flight attendant A full can of soda"
Cons: "Board on the tarmac Tiny plane Hardly any overhead storage Had to sit on the taxiway for another 30 min once we landed"
Cons: "I was supposed to dj in dallas at 12am got a flight in at 7pm but with mechanical problems flight was delayed to a 2:20am landing which I missed my job. I paid for a flight I didn't use and lost 1300.00 usd 0 out of 10 for AA"
Pros: "Got there safe"
Cons: "We were cattle attendants cowboys"
Pros: "El embarque fue rápido y ordenado."
Cons: "El vuelo fue operado por American Airlines. Era un 777 viejo, con pantallas antiguas, servicio de entretenimiento pobre, con películas que no se podían iniciar cuando uno quería."
Pros: "My flight was first class."
Pros: "I got home."
Cons: "Waited 1 hour on the plane with no explanation."
Cons: "Terrible transit to terminal in LAX with shuttle and stairs"
Cons: "Seats packed it tight. One less row and a few more inches would be better. Shame the airlines have making more money in mind and not passenger comforts"
Pros: "Overall experience was great. I prefer American to other Airlines. I love how there are several flights daily between these two destinations with low fares."
Cons: "Me cambiaron de asiento arbitrariamente, yo hice check in 24 horas antes para escoger los asientos que me acomodaban a mí y mi acompañante de 12 años ( los primeros) y resulta que por un cambio de avión me dieron los últimos al lado del baño. Lo que fue horrible, el olor, los pasajeros haciendo fila al lado de mi asiento todo el tiempo, sin poder descansar o estar tranquila. Comprendo que pueden haber descompuestos en el avión y cambiarlo por otro pero al menos al re asignar asientos deberían ver los lugares iniciales que tenía cada uno y no dejar a quienes habían solicitado con anticipación los primeros en el último, literalmente en los últimos puestos. Además la comida es bastante mala."
Cons: "I booked on BA I ended up on AA. US carriers to Europe gives inferior service vis a vis the competition if i wanted a US carrier I would have booked one. It was bait & switch. Compared to whats available in entertainment & comfort on flights, this was like a hires & buggy"
Cons: "American changed the 2nd & 3rd legs of our trip from Vancouver to Phoenix to Charlotte to New Bern and didn't bother to notify us. Discovered on our own after we arrived in Phoenix."
Pros: "boarding was well organized and flowed well crew was nice and courteous"

Pros: "I like the entertainment."
Cons: "Food and distribution of the food. Unfortunately on my flight the flight attendant was so busy that forgot to come back for the water/coffee drinks."
Pros: "Crew was friendly, helpful and very competent. Flight arrived early. Regular notification/reminder via SMS on flight status. Comfortable seats, generous seat pitch."
Cons: "For a three-hour international flight, and at that ticket price, substantial snacks should be complimentary. In Asia, flights of three hours or more on legacy carriers have proper inflight food. Low cost carriers sell food; but UA is not LCC."
Pros: "The flight was comfortable enough, and the staff were friendly."
Cons: "As usual with planes coming from SFO, this one was late."
Pros: "Crew was cheerful."
Cons: "Bring your own everything, even your own entertainment. Download the app before you fly so you can watch 20 year old movies."
Pros: "I am so disappointed of this trip and United airlines"
Cons: "The worst trip with United airlines specially from Huston to El Salvador"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Long flights should have something edible."
Cons: "This flight and three others arrive into Dublin at 5:00 am This is a bizarre time to arrive at a destination"
Cons: "0% leg room :("
Pros: "We upgraded to business so it was great. Crew was especially attentive."
Cons: "Couldn't recharge the iPhone. No plug."
Cons: "I bought first/business class ticket for my wife & myself. The sitting was comparable to premium coach level, my overhead bin was occupied by someone else. Food service was acceptable. I am medium built, the lavatory was very tight I felt sorry for larger than my self."
Cons: "Unassigned seating from the beginning of the trip made the trip arduous."
Pros: "The flight was nice and the crew was very helpful"
Cons: "The landing was a bit rough"
Cons: "Late flight and can't catch next flight on time:("

Cons: "Very late"
Pros: "Staff was great, and the few delays that occurred were fairly minimal and it was clear that the staff/pilot did their best to keep things timely"

Pros: "Flight crew was nicer, and it ran on time."
Cons: "Seats too close in economy. Not everyone is 5' 3" and 105 lbs"
Cons: "I don't like delays..."
Cons: "Flight was delayed but this was due to weather conditions."
Cons: "I am young but I am in heart failure and have an artificial heart. I had requested wheelchair service so I didn't overexert myself at the airport and was wheeled right up to the gate. There were two other older passengers in wheelchairs, one on either side of me. When it came time to pre-board flight attendants came up to both men and helped them on board. They ignored me. Then they announced regular boarding. I had to remove my bags from my lap and get up out of the chair and go to the gate to say I needed to preboard. The man looked annoyd and said they had announced it. When I explained how no one came to me but they did the others he said I could go now. I said I needed help with my bags and he acted VERY surly and put out. He did help me but I felt like they assumed because I was young I couldn't possibly be sick and treated me like a liar."
Cons: "Awful service,"
Pros: "It really was great. On time, crew was helpful and friendly"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew, bags got through timely"
Cons: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "I arrived at YVR to check in for my flight at 4 pm. I was told they couldn't find me In the system anywhere and when they finally did find me they told me they had booked my seat onto another flight that didn't leave u til 6 pm and I would arrive home in San Diego at 10:40 pm. They refused to check my luggage because they said I had arrived too early. I wasn't too early for my originally scheduled flight! I now had to sit in the airport for 5 hours. I had to call home, arrange a sitter for my children whom I was suppose to see at 8:55 pm. They said there was nothing they could do about it."
Pros: "On time, great crew"
Cons: "Small plane, last row of seats are the pits"
Pros: "Was quick enough and on time."
Cons: "Please start charging obese customers more money for their tickets. Seat I was in had me squished because the other passenger was so big. Its not fair that I have to give up half of my seat."
Pros: "It had been years since we last flew UNITED. Honestly, we were a bit apprehensive after learning of friends' negative experiences but we moved forward with our plan. The flight was smooth, and ahead of schedule and the crew was totally on top of their game. SPOT ON!"
Cons: "If I would make ANY suggestion, it would be to load people from the back of the plane to expedite loading. Your current 'zone' approach results in lots of waiting for passengers lo sitting in the back....as the front passenger's mess around, trying to get themselves situated...CLUELESS that there are a hundred others WAITING in the aisle, as they tussle with their sweaters, purses, tech equipment, etc. (if you get my gist!). Just something to consider....."
Pros: "Friendly and accommodating flight attendants."
Cons: "awful handling of the flight delay with lack of info and updates. We were told we were boarding in twenty minutes for four hours."
Cons: "there was no in-flight entertainment."
Cons: "We booked with Air Canada but it was actually United. The flight was delayed five hours. This always happens with United and they seldom provide explanations or updates."
Cons: "Purchased tickets 4 months before this flight for a departure time of 6:05pm. Tried to check in and check baggage at 9:30am but was turned away saying I could only check in 3 hrs prior to my flight. Came back at 3:00pm to check-in and they could not find my information. An hour later they find out that they cancelled the flight and moved my departure time to 8:25am for that day. They say they emailed 3 times in May but I never got it (I'm a bit crazy about my email staying clean) so they say it might have went in to my spam folder due to they types of emails they send to customers. They only kept repeating that they notified me so there is nothing they could do. I ended up going to Air Canada to get a flight to PHX the next day. No apology, no help, no hotel for the night...Terrible experience by United. They gave me a customer relations group contact information to follow up with for complaint but since they sent me the 3 emails in May about the change, they have no liability to fix the situation."
Pros: "Another normal flight."
Cons: "Check in troubles. Couldn't check in online. Agents had some trouble locating our reservations. Security was a lengthy process. Big brother type operation going through customs."
Pros: "Great flight with no issues or any problems. Flight on time, luggage transfer was fine, crew pleasant and helpful. Smooth sailing."
Cons: "We don't take advantage of entertainment on board."
Cons: "Constant 5 - 30 minute email updates stating flight delay. The delayed started at 30 minutes and ended in being 3 hours. The stated reason changed just as frequently."

Cons: "in flight movies were not free while most other airlines offer passenger free in flight entertainment."
Pros: "The flight attendants were really courteous and friendly."
Cons: "There was not anything that I did not like"

Cons: "Tight seats in coach..expected"
Cons: "Did know till we got on the flight that if we wanted entertainment that we had to down load a appt. so that was annoying."

Cons: "For an international flight, we had to pay for meals and for entertainment."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Didn't fly this leg on United, but rather on Air Canada."
Pros: "Gate Crew in YVR was very courteous"
Cons: "Deadheading pilots throwing large carry on in front rows but sitting in back rows. Really guys?"
Pros: "It ending"
Cons: "I don't even know where to begin. Horrible flight with two obnoxious dunk clowns that kept this red eye flight awake. Because they were loud and obnoxious they got all the service on the flight. The way they acted, very inappropriately to another passenger, and sneaking booze from their carry on-Wished there was an air marshal on the flight. Won't be flying United again."
Pros: "The plane was clean, left on time and arrived early. Expecting that there were too many carry on bags, they offered to check some bags at the gate for no additional cost."
Cons: "The snacks were a waste of time. The charge for the entertainment system is based on the published flying time but since those are overstated to improve on time performance, the entertainment charge was excessive."
Pros: "Kayak was not aware that my flight was changed to another airline. Great notification!!!!!"
Pros: "The crew was very helpful"
Cons: "The fiesta packet of food is terrible, the coffee creamer was curdled in 3 different cups that I tried"
Pros: "I like boarding, crew and the comfort ."

Pros: "poor airline with bad time and no accomodation"
