Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours due to bad weather. Additional baggage payment to Air Baltic did not show up on the KLM system and we had to pay again. Nowhere to address this with Air Baltic even in Tallin. Handlers seem uninterested and refer us to ‘the website to address the issue.....’"

Cons: "Can't think of anything."
Cons: "Our total flight time was about 17 hours - MAD- AMS-LAX. My husband and I both have an internationally approved carry on luggages with us. When we checked in - they asked us to both check in our carry on luggage. The reason why is because they said they don’t think they have enough space for our carry ons. I told the crew member checking us in that other people that was checking in with the same hand carry size luggage with us had no problems taking it with them. For being about to be on a 17 HOUR FLIGHT we should be ALLOWED to have our carry ons with us! We take carry ons for that reason! I had to argue and prove my case to the crew member to atleast keep 1 carry on with us. I thought that was an UNACCEPTABLE reason for us to check in a carry on luggage when we had a 17 hour travel time ahead of us. Not a happy costumer here."
Pros: "Really friendly staff. Great service"
Pros: "crew were absolutely delightful, full of smiles and doing everything to make you comfortable. seats were fine enough and got some work done and a bit of sleep. first lunch was fresh and tasty, but the second, a burger, was edible, but not much more."

Pros: "The cabin crew were good. They explained what the arrangements were for the delayed flight connections"
Cons: "The plane wasn't refueled and so was not ready for take off once the passengers were loaded. The plane had a technical problem when it tried the first take off and so it had to be abandoned. This was alarming.."

Pros: "Everytime she passed she was hitting me or I had to hold my drink so that she wouldn't knock it off"

Pros: "Staff, service"
Pros: "El entretenimiento"
Cons: "Demasiadas mascotas sin posibilidad de descanso. Un gato en ej asiento del frente que no dejó de hacer ruido y dos asientos atrás un pero en la misma situación. Debería tomar más medidas para el viaje de mascotas"
Pros: "Nothing, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Cons: "Everything, the flight was delayed, the plane too small for passengers to store their carry-on luggage, the ground staff did not upload all the luggage and left some behind in Nairobi on the tarmac, the crew lied about the luggage being uploaded. Terrible experience! Kenya Airways is becoming worst and worst."
Pros: "The sear was messy they didn't clean it it was full of pieces of bread."
Cons: "boarding the flight on time instead of delaying it two times... and also putting the information at the flight information screen if I haven't gone to ask to the airport information stand I would never know the flight departure gate that was at the complete opposite side of the airport of were the initial flight was going to depart."
Cons: "The conditions were very cramped. The entertainment system was quite old and had very little selection. My entertainment system actually stopped working all together. I called for assistance from my seat a couple of times, but nobody came."
Cons: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. Without that tickets we can not claim the bags. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Cons: "Boarding (by bus) was a total chaos. I had to stand for about 50 minutes, either on the crowded bus or, after climbing with great difficulty three flights of stairs to a high jet-bridge (I am 76), standing there forever with 200 persons waiting to get access to the plane. Totally unacceptable. They started the boarding process early (50 minutes before departure), but passengers were allowed to actually board the plane at the time it was supposed to take off."
Cons: "Kayak updated me that my flight would be late. It wasn't. Missed it had to pay $700"
Cons: "Tell me i would misst the next flight and that my beg will not go to the final airport."
Cons: "CDG airport in Paris is a very inefficient and by far the slowest airport. I recommend other passengers to get to the airport at least 4 hours before their departure."
Pros: "Crew was ok and servicial"
Cons: "Food and reception at door of boarding"
Pros: "Late departure, dirty, staff not friendly."
Cons: "Train your ground crew. Our luggage was not placed on our flight from Paris to Amsterdam and were sent to Amsterdam on separate planes. My husband’s medication was in his bag. This was a great inconvenience for us. Never again on Air Canada. I suggest you explore the baggage process used by Delta."
Pros: "On time, no hassle."
Pros: "In flight entertainment was great"
Cons: "seats very uncomfortable, boarding was a mess in Paris, priority luggage was annoying and made us miss our connection flight (as well as numerous delays)"
Cons: "Too much time spent at boarding. On luggage missing."
Pros: "The crew was friendly and always came around with water."
Cons: "The “vegetarian” option was tuna which isn’t vegetarian and there was no vegetarian snack. With the hundreds of dietary and religious food restrictions you would think having a vegetarian option would be much more attainable.. They also didn’t make an announcement about our flight being late."
Cons: "Two hour delay meant we missed our connection. Then given a very late flight and had to haggle for ages to get earlier flight and told we should pay extra for it!"
Pros: "The crew was very gentile."
Cons: "No enterteinment on the plane."
Cons: "The fligh Washington delay more than a hour"
Cons: "Arrived 5 hours late"
Pros: "The entertainment has great selection. The crews were much friendier than the flight from SFO to Paris."
Cons: "The seat padding is rather thin."
Pros: "The only thing that I like about the flight was that it was easy to boarding"
Cons: "The food was not heat correctly it was cold and I felt that the crew rush to give out the food. The seats are terrible, if the person in front of you reclines you won’t be able to see the screen if your watching a movie and you will see the top of the persons head."
Cons: "I didn’t have time to make it through customs. Missed my flight"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Did not seat together passengers, although booked and checked in at the same time."
Pros: "1. Entertainment - Decent movie selection. I wished the angle of the screen in economy could be adjustable as well. Turkish Air does it better. Once the seat ahead of me reclines I dont have too much hope of saving my eyes from the awkward angles."
Cons: "1. Boarding - Learn from maybe Turkish Air who allocate people zones based on where you are seated in the plane. People seated all the way in the back should be allowed to board first and fill the plane back to front. Makes it less likely for you stand around waiting for people as well people all the way in the back making contact with every possible human already seated in the aisles. 2. Comfort - Window seats are too hot, middle aisle seats are too cold 3. Thankfully they do have halal offering. Now if they will even let me choose that I am allergic to seafood. Glad for the chicken. Nothing to boast about."
Pros: "We flew with our special needs child without requesting any particular accommodations except for gluten free meals. The gate staff and flight crew identified him and allowed us special bordering that facilitated the process. That act of kindness is a rare experience on our part. Thank you Air France staff!"
Cons: "Airplane delay to take off 1 unknown reason After landing in Paris 50 min sitting inside airplane moving around Late for flight transfer. Sitting in Paris airport 5 hours. Customer service no working. Never fly Air France anymore !"
Pros: "Enjoyed my food, especially tasty for airplan fare!"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"
Pros: "The staff was very nice and friendly"
Cons: "One hour delay without any information on embarking and another hour in the plane before departure"
Pros: "The free glass of red wine when the plane finally took off."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. We were told that it was just a half an hour delay by the man that was informing us of the delay and then we were then told by a woman that it was going to be over an hour. We weren’t told any specifics of why the plane was delayed, other than: “ the engineers are looking at the issue now”. We received messages saying that the flight was cancelled but then we were told to ignore that. We were told that we would have an update every 10-15 minutes but by the time we had the next update was 1 hours later, we were told that the plane will depart at 15:50- which we did. But we also sat on the plane for an extra 2 hours or maybe even more (couldn’t bare watching the time at this point) because the man that was supposed to push the plane backwards in order to reverse the plane didn’t turn up so we then had to wait for all of the other planes to take off before we could. Eventually the plane set off at 18:20 and I got in France 19:30-20:00 ish?"
Cons: "Please see comments above about this flight."
Pros: "The crew was super friendly and always gave the feeling that they want the customers to feel comfortable and enjoy the flight. One of the crew members even offered me to move to an emergency exit seat (without me asking to move) because I am tall. Amazing!"
Cons: "I leave my jacket in the hanger when I get off the airplane I realized that they didn’t gave it to me. I inmeadiatly tey to go back but I couldn’t I went to the counter and they said that there was noting on the plane !"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Pros: "La entrada"
Cons: "El resto de cosas"
Cons: "Its been a week. My trip has ended. I still do not have my bags. Terrible customer service."
Pros: "On time after latish start"
Cons: "Staff took carryon bags even for skypriority even tho lots of room in overhead, allegedly to speed deplaning. Nowarning to repack. Infuriating and stubborn staff!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly and professional, fresh croissant and hot chocolate on my short flight. As many airlines charge now for any and all food items it was nice to again experience fast and efficient food and beverage service without the tedious hassle of ordering and paying. I’d gladly fly Air France again. First time, but likely not the last."
Cons: "Like all airlines , the seats could use a few more inches of space, even two would be nice."
Pros: "It was Amazing staff helpfull and fresh.. love it"
Cons: "Flight of almost 3 hours was not entreteiment at all just magazines."
Pros: "Crew was nice and responsive"
Cons: "The overall experience is regular at best"
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Window pane was broken on my side and I couldn't shut it down. As it was a day flight the sun heated my skin badly"
Cons: "Cramped, no cabin bag space, late departure with no communication and lost checked luggage. Not a great Air France experience."
Pros: "Missed connection and it was airport not Delta that was the problem. Not a good way to start a vacation. Rating is for the Paris Airport, not the flight crew or Air France employees. Still sitting in the airport when we should be at our destination."
Cons: "Hundreds of people missed their flights. Delta had us into Paris with an hour and a half to get to connecting flight. Missed flight due to huge delay in passport approval. They seemed completely unprepared."
Pros: "No issues, quick trip, friendly staff, comfortable ride..."
Pros: "Párizs Budapest kb 1 óra késés műszaki hiba miatt. egyébként minden rendbe volt."
Pros: "Panamá airport is a disaster, unorganized and dirty"
Cons: "Panamá airport"
Pros: "The food was great. Very filling and hot foods were hot and cooked thoroughly. For our 8 hour flight we were served 2 meals and snacks and plenty of hot drinks which was nice.The entertainment was great got to watch movies and play games and also learn language through games."
Cons: "It was very hot in there probably hotter than it should be. Not much air flow I was sweating the whole flight. Because of this I couldn't sleep it was kinda miserable not gonna lie."
Cons: "Charged me for checking a bag.. was not told of that. No coffee or any beverages provided. Seats uncomfortable. Will fly Iberia next time."
Cons: "We Flew business class. Very ordinary."
Cons: "It was good"
Pros: "Stewardesses were very friendly and helpful. Moved us to a row with empty seats so we could have more room!"
Pros: "Usual BA welcome"
Cons: "Luckily the plane was delayed as my incoming flight was slightly delayed and BA had booked me on flights that take 40 minutes to get between gates I had to run. From there the delay grew as seems to be typical of BA at the moment. Also by the time the trolley made it to me there was only one sandwich choice left."
Pros: "Crew were friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Departed about 2 hours late."
Pros: "Food servir das ver good. Flights attendants work ver card and seré ver attentive"
Cons: "Some bathrooms found have bien a Little3 cleaner"
Pros: "It was a short flight but everyone was proper and professional, as I like!"
Cons: "Nothing really"
Pros: "I liked the ability to check in online. Check in staff could be a little bit friendlier. Flight crew were fairly pleasant. Entertainment on board was excellent."
Cons: "I disliked the fact that when I tried to download my boarding pass on to my BA app, it told me there appeared to be an issue with at least one of my travelling documents when this was absolutely incorrect (was travelling with a valid British passport). I had no problems whatsoever at the airport at the check in counter. Also, the boarding gate was slightly chaotic. Most people didn't know which queue to join at the boarding gate. Some form of clear explanation when you arrive at the boarding gate would be helpful."
Cons: "Couple of flight attendants had a terrible attitude."
Cons: "Rerouted due to a cancellation"
Pros: "Large plane operated by Iberia"
Cons: "Uninspiring food"
Pros: "The food and the services. The plane looks new and clean. Many new release movies."
Cons: "seat space is too small and not comfort."
Pros: "The prompt take off and landing..."
Pros: "The plane is comfortable and clean. Crew amiable and efficient."
Cons: "Not even complementary water was offered on a 2-hour flight. No entertainment at all. The difference with low-cost companies is narrowing."
Cons: "my trip to England was a nightmare starting with American Airlines not being able to find my flight or my name in the system. It was worse on the return from Gatwick. They also couldnt find me in the system and i blame it all on this Kayak travel site. I will never again use Kayak !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! my trip was a nightmare."
Pros: "Flight staff was very nice"
Pros: "I was amazed by the flavour and quality of the food. As well, having complimentary drinks available anddd to the experience that made it special. I felt that I was treated as a valued client rather than just a person to fill the seat. That you to British Airways for making my travels a high quality experience."
Pros: "Food and staff service was amazing"
Pros: "The entertainment was surprisingly good."
Cons: "The seating was tight."
Cons: "Wasn't entertainment...no big deal, I just gave it a no stars because of that"
Pros: "Felt room in spite of being in coach. Friendly flight attendants."
Cons: "Flight delayed & on a 2+ hr flight you don’t give anything free to drink. What a sorry airline. Not even human."
Pros: "The plane take off and landing were great. The cabin crew were pleasant."
Cons: "Boarding was confusing as announcements were hard to hear about zones. The plane was old and run down. The top of my arm rest had a plastic cover that kept falling off. There was no entertainment on the plane. It was a 2 hour flight from Madrid to London and we didn't not get any refreshments for free. I would at least expect a drink and pretzels as that's standard everywhere else."
Pros: "I like that the staff was very kind, accommodating and professional."
Cons: "THE FLIGHT WAS CANCELED. I HAD TO MAKE CHANGES FOR MYSELF AND PARTNER. THE CHANGES REQUIRED ME TO CHANGE TO FROM A BRITISH AIRWAYS FLIGHT TO AN AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHT. MY TIME FRAME WAS EXTREMELY TIGHT SO THAT I COULD MAKE THE FLIGHT FROM MADRID TO CHARLOTTE AND ON TO DENVER. FINNAIR REPRESENTATIVES WERE NOT HELPFUL. FINNAIR DIRECTED ME TO GO TO THE IBERIA DESK WHO ASSISTED ME WITH THE PROCESS TO FLY AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHT."
Cons: "3 hours standing in British airways and Iberian airways ticket and checking counters to get alternative flights. They could not do the "entire change" and required that we wIt in line after line. Will be a full 24 hours until the entire trip is complete. Would have been nice to at least sit in the empty first class seats on the transatlantic flight with my party as a bit of customer service. Wondering how many hours other had to wait for alternative flights because they did not use the first class seats as an alternative."
Pros: "I thouht that the seats were comfortable. When we boarded the Madrid to London flight, we were surprised to find that the aisle seats that we had paid extra to book had been changed, and although my husband had an aisle seat, I did not. On the longer flight from London to Seattle , we did both have aisle seats, which was important to both of us. We get up more frequently than many people to use the bathroom."
Cons: "There were a couple of women who were very cold, and there were no crew members in economy class who could speak Spanish who could respond to them appropriately to them. The attendants just kept saying, sorry, I don't speak Spanish. This seemed very surprising to me, as the flight connected a Spanish- speaking country to London!"
Pros: "Arrived safely at my destination."
Cons: "I was offered free tap water. No way to treat passengers."
Cons: "The old flight attendants, are entitle, rude, racist (from a flight I encountered from China to America, "One claiming Chinese are so annoying to deal with"."
Pros: "British Airways was simply too good. It was a fantastic experience."
Pros: "Pleasant and helpful crew;"
Cons: "Never boarded the plane. Connecting flight got delayed by 2 hrs and 57 minutes leaving from Madrid. After 2 hours of hassle, Iberia airlines was able to put me on another flight from Madrid to London to NY."
Pros: "one of my employee was left at Spain because his information wasn't found in the your sistem. he is still in Spain and His name is Julio Cesar Paul."
Pros: "The BA staff was very courteous. I missed a connection and they put me on another flight."
Cons: "I didn't like how the itinerary only allowed for 1 hr at gatwick airport and I had to go through customs and security just to get from one terminal to another. I talked with one of the BA staff and they said that all of their operations are getting consolidated to one terminal so this shouldn't be a problem in the future."
Cons: "Non-stop from Madrid to Philadelphia was canceled apparently because of a computer problem and then I was rerouted through Amsterdam with an extremely short connectios which in turn meant that baggage did not make it and was opened and damaged !!! BA clearly at fault. BA Reservations agent suggested to enter a complaint"
Pros: "Food and space to seat"
Cons: "No wifi"
Pros: "The plane had quite a bit of leg room, more than my flight from Denver to London. The movie selection was nice. Free wine and beer is always a plus. They gave a nice sized cup of coffee, but the coffee was terrible. The crew was nice."
Cons: "The head phone jack only allowed sound in one ear. The food wasn't great, and the expectations were low."
Pros: "Same as before. But I flew with Iberia."
Pros: "The flight was booked by British Airways but the flight was operated by Aer Lingus. The crew were very friendly and helpful. The food was good. The flight wasn't fully booked which helped with the level of comfort as I was able to spread out my things on the empty seat and tray table next to me. Otherwise it would have been a small space to live in for 7 hours"
Cons: "Aer Lingus charged about $6 for a glass of wine and alcoholic drinks. Other international airlines I've flown on include wine with lunch or dinner. Also there were no blankets available for the long flight, just pillows."
Cons: "El dia 27/marzo/16 volamos mi esposa, 4 hijos y yo de Madrid a Londres vuelo # 459, el cual llego tarde y perdimos la conexión del vuelo DIRECTO a San Diego # 273, nos mandaron vía Chicago y volvimos a perder la conexión a San Diego por pura lentitud del personal de British, teniendo que dormir en Chicago, nos dieron hospedaje y 100 dlls para cenar para 6 personas (gaste lo doble). Al día siguiente, estuve cerca de 90 minutos batallando para que me imprimieran los pases de abordar porque supuestamente British no había pagado los boletos a American Airlines. Les pido me recompensen con boletos redondos por todas estos inconvenientes. Saludos y gracias, Fernando Vizcarra"
Pros: "Stewardess was very pleasant and managed youth group behaviors well!"
Pros: "Because the flight was about half full between Madrid and Dallas (a rather long flight!) and because my sweetheart and I were seated in the middle 5 seats alone, we were able to put the arm rests up and get some real sleep to acclimate to West Coast time (our final destination). I can never sleep very well sitting up. Also, the food and entertainment were pretty good. We were given two main meals and a few snacks in between, including chocolate ice cream, which I've never received on a plane before. All that in addition to the decent selection of recent movies available made for a relatively pleasant red eye flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system on the back of the seat was clearly outdated and the screens were not very reliable. While watching a movie, if the captain made an announcement, it was made in the headsets, too, as usual, but uncomfortably loud."
Pros: "Location in the aircraft"
Pros: "A REAL Iberian airlines STAR was Ms. CLARA BENCORO--the Iberia counter agent (gate H22 @ Barajas) who was ABSOLUTELY amazing in re-booking me from MAD>>LHR after the French air traffic controller strike had delayed this leg of my trip past the LHR>>SAN departure time. She was SO efficient & competent in changing me to an earlier flight to London which saved this trip by getting me there well before the scheduled 15:30 departure connection to SAN. Her knowledge of all the ONE World computer reservation system interfaces was amazing, as she spent almost 30 minutes rebooking me and ensuring my luggage would catch up. As my booking was through FinnAir she had to go through THREE systems (Finn Air / BA/ AA) to get me to London on time. PLEASE recognize her customer service !!!!!!"
Pros: "I booked on BA but flew Iberia. The crew were friendly. The food was better than many airlines I have flown."
Cons: "My screen quite working half way through the flight a continually reset after that. Water was only offered 1 time between meals."
Pros: "Lots of leg room, good food, and friendly professional staff"
Pros: "Ease of location of airport"
Pros: "Highly efficient crew."
Cons: "AC was way too cold"
Pros: "American really exceeded our expectations on both overseas flights on this trip. Good food, nice service, plenty of in-flight entertainment."

Pros: "They gave us plenty of drinks and food"
Cons: "Leg room"
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "More space in coach between seats"
Cons: "The place to rest the head. Would be great if it had that part that you can bend to hold your head."
Cons: "Too much delay"
Pros: "Roomy seats excellent service good food"
Cons: "Need better choices of movies"
Pros: "Food, staff and entertainment was good. However, the touch screen on one of our systems did not work, and had to use the remote control."
Cons: "Not enough bathrooms, and the one on our side got dirty fast. Also, give yourself lots of EXTRA time to get through the airport in Madrid. It takes forever to get out to the gate, and you have to go through Security, Immigration and sometimes a second more intense security (which we did). If you need to get your VAT refund on purchases, add at least ONE hour. 30 minutes to get the approval stamp in one line, and 30 minutes in another line to get your refund."
Cons: "Uncomfortable Old plane with cigarette compartments Unfriendly staff They could not Sit me and my partner together because of the “fate” which was like 700 USD each! Yet they had empty seats and the ability to fulfill the request. It’s sad the low service level, operated by American Airlines booked with British Airways."
Cons: "1 hr delay and 40 minute wait for wheelchair."
Cons: "They did not honor my isle seat request, no inflight entertainment at all in my seat and lost my luggage! This is unacceptable!"
Pros: "Announcements clear pleasant staff decent food"
Cons: "All was well"
Pros: "Comfortable flight."
Pros: "Entertainment was good. Food was pretty decent considering it was gluten free. Wish there were more snacks on command kind of thing. I got really hungry. The guy working at the madrid ticketing counter that helped me check in my bags. Super cool dude. Very easy to talk to. Spoke perfect English and spanish because he was raised in usa but his mom is from spain. He was very detailed in I was going to have to navigate both madrid and dallas airports."
Cons: "The VERY first American Airline lady I met at Madrid airport who was like the first greeter. I was looking at all the different posted signs to see where to go and she says “hola” and i say “hola” back. She asked me which class i was in i said whichever the normal one is. All while im inching my way towards where i seem to already to know where to go. The lady kind of snaps at me and says “stop excuse me im talking to you.” I wasnt really walking away from this lady, i was inching towards what seemed to be i needed to go(and in fact was where i needed to go). I am fully capable of listening and moving at the same time. I dont need to be scolded like 5 year old child because she thinks I wasn’t listening to her. I was listening and progressing towards the place i need to be at the same time and also using two different languages in my head in order to talk to her. So that is just what i would call mulitasking for a person and not grounds for someone to use a parenting tactic on another adult at 730am."
Pros: "Friendly crew, flight not full so able to switch seat to bulk head seat for more leg room."
Cons: "The staff member at the gate counter in Philly was very short and rude. She asked for people volunteer to check their carry-on bags and when I took mine up she was very curt. She asked me for my seat number (I didn't hear her) and her tone got worse. A woman who did not speak English need assistance and was turned away by this person with s shrug. The Latina finally stood in the middle of the gate area asking for help from anyone who could speak English. I just spent 18 days I Madrid and never once was rejected when I asked for assistance. I was not happy with your employee and I was ashamed to hear an American treat someone that way. In the employee's defense, she was alone at the dest up until boarding time and was juggling a lot of balls without any other support. Not a good experience."
Pros: "Flight was under booked so there was plenty of room."
Cons: "Crew was unexpectedly loud/chatty with one another throughout the flight, even when things were quite and calm they were calling over our heads to one another and laughing loudly. Initially, it's an international flight from Spain and no crew members in my section atleast could speak Spanish. I had to help a passenger who only spoke spanish because the attendant kept repeating an order in english, just getting louder each time."
Cons: "The seats are very tight."
Cons: "Films, TV screens did not work"
Pros: "Flight was not full."
Cons: "Luggage was very late and arrived at the wrong carousel."
Pros: "Missed it!"
Pros: "Crew members were very humane and supportive."
Cons: "We flew a transatlantic flight during storm Grayson in a 757. Not only it was irresponsable, but dangerous. Communications from the cockpit was poor."
Cons: "All except the food."
Pros: "This flight was not full, so most people on the plane had the opportunity to spread out and have an empty seat next to them. The in-flight entertainment choices were vast."
Cons: "Food quality was not as good as some of the other flights, but there was still an ample amount of food served."
Pros: "I was very happy to see that AA considerably improved service on-board, if I compare it to an experience of several years ago. For future flights to Europe I will not hesitate to choose AA over disappointing BA."
Cons: "All was as expected flying in coach. AA offered an adequate service fo an international flight."
Pros: "Staff great, food good"
Cons: "Seats had no cushioning for bottom. Need to improve"
Cons: "I hate American airlines. It is the WORST. We were held for almost 4 hours waiting for "maintenance call" then flight was cancelled. THEN it took two full hours to get back checked bags. By ths point it was 5 pm, had been at airport since 8:30 -- no food offered, no apologies, not even a glass of water. Of course, no flights back to US so I was stuck an extra day, completely messed up school and work. I THOUGHT I was booking with Iberia but it was a code share. I WILL NEVER fly American Airlines again!"
Cons: "More than a 2 hour delay in Madrid for American Airlines to replace the seat harness on the Co-pilot's chair. This seems like an evolution that should never delay a flight if the proper preventive maintenance had been performed. Very little info was given and there did not seem to be any concern by the pilot or flight attendants once the flight was boarded due to the delay. I was very relieved, however, when we arrived at JFK and AA had a point of contact helping folks with close flights. We originally had 3.5 hours to make our connection to BWI, but due to the delay, had less than an hour to go thru Passport control, rescreening and entry to the terminal, but we made it. Thank you for the personal representative. I did not get her name, but she was very, very helpful."
Pros: "Lots of food and drinks, nice crew and pretty good experience"
Cons: "Tv screen too slow..... doesn't work that good,the plane was a little noisier at take off than usually, nothing mayor...."
Pros: "The digital entertainment was off the chart. It kept me awake during the whole flight. A flight feels shorter when one becomes entertain instead of nodding off and on, which makes the flight feels longer than it really was."
Cons: "I am vegan. So I guess I am minority for now, but I hope some of the food in the futures also cater to those of us that don't eat any type of animal product. One only can hope!."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Older plane"
Pros: "Trip on time"
Pros: "The attendants helped you with all your needs. They were professional and fluent in the languages necessary to help the passengers. Very impressed"
Cons: "Good was good. Snacks and beverages were awesome."
Cons: "I paid hard-earned money for an expensive flight to Madrid. Not only were we very delayed on the way there, we were also delayed on the way back. We spent 3 hours back and forth on the tarmac stuck on an old bus in 100+ degree weather being delivered conflicting information, summed up to the seats being "broken". We got a "bathroom break" during which was talked to very rudely by the flight attendant at the gate, and then was almost left behind by the bus on the tarmac. Additionally, once we got onto the plane, it was extremely old (I'm talking no TV's, ashtrays on seats, filthy tables, dirty seats). To top it off, when I went to the restroom in the middle on the flight, I saw flight attendants drinking Tito's and soda in the back in the plane and talking loudly. I am not usually one to complain- but this was a particularly bad experience and terrible ending to my vacation."
Pros: "Great service!"
Pros: "Flight wasn't full so I had the row to myself and got to stretch out. Great selection of movies. Decent food."
Cons: "One FA seemed visibly annoyed with me; I'm honestly not sure what I did. I am a FA for another airline; didn't identify myself as such but always make sure to not be "that passenger." During two beverage services she did not ask me if I wanted anything but simply looked at me with disdain and sighed loudly. She wasn't rude; just not friendly and I never once saw her smile. She seemed tired and annoyed. I understand that feeling. I've been a FA for 16 years, still junior at my company, but it reminded me how important body language and facial expressions are when we work hospitality and customer service in the public eye. I hope everything is ok with her and I'm sorry if I did something that irritated her. I didn't get her name."
Pros: "That the flight was not full and staff were just great very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "All good on this flight."
Pros: "Right on time."
Cons: "The aircondition was extremely cold. I was freezing"
Pros: "No water no food nothing good"
Pros: "Kayak didn't gave single updates or reminder, not even ticket confirmation. Never buying from kayak."
Cons: "The Live TV entertainment froze so many times when trying to watch either CNN or CNBC. Finally gave up on it. The Touch Screen responsiveness could be much better. However; once a movie was selected, watching it was an excellent experience. The Leg room was not the best either, but I blame myself on this in that I almost waited till the last minute to buy my self a ticket."
Pros: "On board flight entertainment did not work No kid friendly meal options Bags checked onto the wrong flight from PHL-DEN"
Pros: "Safe flight. Two seats instead of three on the outer aisles. Although the flight was an hour and a half delayed, we landed at the original time. Not sure how that works."
Cons: "Very old plane. No individual entertainment for an 8 hour flight. The old fashion tv were in the middle of the plane. The flight attendant were almost non existent. One toilet did not work. I was very disappointed"
Cons: "Not able to check backpack."
Pros: "Take off delayed, poor comfort, service was not good and the entertainment system was not individual"
Cons: "Take off delayed, poor comfort, service was not good and the entertainment system was not individual"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive to Charlotte. I am still waiting for it one day later."
Cons: "The plain was an old model with no personal screens... So boring"
Pros: "Very friendly staff."
Cons: "The flight was delayed. Food is miserable."
Pros: "Good service, friendly staff and easy boarding process, good food and on time departure"
Cons: "No complaints"
Cons: "Nothing, it was better than most other airlines"
Pros: "2 free checked bags"
Cons: "Very long wait time."
Pros: "Kind staff. We were served a very healthy snack which was also delicious. Flight was delayed due to fog in Porto but oh well! No big problema."
Cons: "No delays."
Cons: "According to Kayak I had one bag for free I had to pay 50 euros"
Cons: "We were not able to board the plane. We left our morning flight from Madrid on time and arrived as expected. We hurried through the airport and went exactly where we were directed. Despite this, the gates closed on us while we were running to the gate. TAP sold us a service they could not provide."
Pros: "Flight didn’t happen"
Cons: "Transfer to other airline was abysmal"
Pros: "The crew was good and went out of their way to help the passengers. The seats were uncomfortable."
Cons: "The entertainment could definitely be better. Newer screens, and more options."
Pros: "Extremely friendly flight crews, never hesitate to help with a smile on their face!"
Cons: "The layover situation needs to be improved. When you give 50 minutes, there really isn’t enough time to deplane, get through the check point, and make it to the terminal. We were told to run like animals in the airport in order to not miss the flight."
Cons: "I fee cheated because it is the first time that I have. to pay for luggage. In their website it states that the basic fare allows in check-in bag. They said to me that there are different categories of basic fare, which is not disclosed in their website. Additionally any seat change cost"
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and attentive, there was a delay to boarding and departure but they were very apologetic about it. Service was attentive on the plane and bags promptly delivered at the baggage carousel."
Cons: "I upgraded at the airport to Executive class, which is really a bit of a scam to be honest. It’s just the first two rows of the plane and the middle seat kept free... the seats were no different to economy. Not worth the 109€ upgrade fee."
Pros: "Crew was helpful and professional. Airplane was comfortable and very spacious. Food was awesome."
Cons: "Really need to look at a more efficient way to board the passengers. Was pretty chaotic and the gate was way too small for so many people. Feel like the passengers with carry on luggage were thrown to the wolves while those with backpacks were treated way better."
Pros: "The crew was nice in the cabin."
Cons: "The Check in people were insanely rude. They made me pay 50 Euro for my carryon. The size was fine but it weighed more than 7 kilo. There was no problem outbound and plenty of people had bigger carryons"
Pros: "Punctuality, service and confort"
Cons: "There wasn't food or entertainment. Might want to add NA as an option in those categories"
Pros: "Service was good and the food was better than average."
Cons: "Paying extra for business class so you can sleep just isn't worth it with TAP. We had an older plane, showing its age, and the seats did not go completely flat. So, I kept slipping down and my feet jammed into the seat in front of me."
Cons: "The service was worse than poor. The planes seay table had hair and dandruff all over it. The air hostesses handed me the food two isles away and I had to hand it to my whole row. I would never pay this price for business class for this airline or ever trust Kayak to give good options."
Cons: "The marked delay"
Pros: "The pilot could fly the plane."
Cons: "The servers were rude."
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "Nothing to eat, not even paying."
Pros: "Excellent layout, excellent service."
Cons: "Boarding was refused at gate due to late arrival of previous flight which was also a TAP flight. No assistance to delay following flight or accelerate our deplaning even though the next identical flight was three days later."
Pros: "Staff good very pleasant. Entertainment good."
Cons: "Bit late into Lisbon and luggage left behind."
Cons: "Plane too small and doesn’t have the thing to charge my phone"

Pros: "Nice plane, friendly and helpful staff... good service"
Pros: "Efficient friendly generous service To a little used, user friendly airport (Free alcohol, i.e., wines; no spirits) I ordered a Muslim meal: delicious"
Cons: "We had trouble with the A/C leaving; until we were airborne, it was hot. I suspect that this is an unusual problem. In general, I find small international carriers better than the large ones; my favorite so far in Air Austria"
Pros: "Check in app"
Cons: "Non-reclining seats"
Pros: "Good staff, Quick flight, Easy flight no problems. The biscuits are tasty."
Cons: "Seats need an inch or two more leg room for me, the biscuits they gave out were tasty but would of been really nice to have a sandwhich. But that's air travel these days. There was a slight problem with the air craft before we took off. Air conditioning was off and the door were closed while we sat there for 15 mins. They kept us well informed though, not the end of the world."
Cons: "The delay which caused us to miss our connecting flight and as a result being stranded at the Lisbon airport for 6+ hrs. This would have been avoided if there was proper communication within the airline-- an absolutely irresponsible way to handle our plight. The ground personnel themselves admitted that no one informed them of our arrival time. True or false? go figure.This all occured while they refused to allow us on board our plane that was still at the gate and nowhere near taking off. This also resulted in rescheduling our ground transfer, which resulted in additional expense. Overall, a nightmare of an airline. Avoid."
Cons: "My reservation was cancelled."
Pros: "Very good regional airline; good service; luggage arrived!"
Pros: "La atención del personal es bueno."
Cons: "Los asientos no se pueden reclinar, muy duros."
Pros: "seat very comfortable...excellent entertainment choices"

Cons: "On a non- stop flight from Madrid to Portugal which I checked in 2 hours early for my bags and those of 15 other people were LOST.I did not receive my bag for 28 hours! They only deliver once a day. Additionally, they charge extra for everything you can imagine. Any weight over their limit is 105 euros."
Pros: "the short connection time to Lisbon great service on SWISS and TAP the fact that I was allowed 2 pieces of hand luggage. Not forgetting your great service to adjust my booking from economy to business class Thanks"
Cons: "Flight was overbooked by over 20 people and even though we got the airport 2 hrs early to check in we were bumped from the flight. Next flight available was not for over 8 hrs later that day. Rude and not helpful employees. No gate announcement when flight was then delayed. Most American size carry one do not fit in overbooked head and was forced to gate check."
Cons: "Wait for boarding"
Cons: "bad checkin. just trying to get more money for baggage.."
Pros: "Their system updates you with messages on gate changes and times. Staff is very friendly and professional. Planes are clean and seem well maintained."
Pros: "Short flight & delayed departure, but arrived in time to make our connection. Crew helpful."
Cons: "Madrid Airport security check opened all carry-on baggage and containers with medications."
Pros: "The crew was nice and helpful"
Cons: "The plane was very old, the screens to watch the TV were horrible, the resolution was very bad, you can't barely see anything. The choices or movies are very bad, and you cannot select when to start the movie. Some toilets did not have soap."

Cons: "Flight was late taking off."
Pros: "On time, good service."
Pros: "The crew was absolutely great which jump started the flight. The food and all the available movies and games were great too."
