Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "But, this wasn't bad at all, even though we were on the very last seat of the plane. We were next to one of the flight attendants during take off and landing and she was very kind and we were speaking with her. The flight was smooth"
Pros: "Delta is the best--I sat in a comfy seat (middle seat at that) and watched 3 movies during my flight. Couldn't be better!"
Pros: "We spent 90 min in line to take off on the tarmac. Pilot kept us informed. Crew were very pleasant."
Pros: "The smootheness of the flight."
Cons: "The fact that the passenger behind me is was kicking the back of my seat. And it wasn't even a child!"
Pros: "Quick and on time. Comfortable seats."
Cons: "Not many movie options."
Cons: "No communication between different parts of the airport; early arrival, over 2 hours getting through baggage claim; good luck rechecking your bag; almost missed flight with a 2 1/2 hour layover. Workers on the ground don't care, or either don't know what's next on the transit through the airport."
Cons: "It was late and i missed my next flight"
Pros: "Efficient hop to Boston"
Cons: "I was not aware, when I picked my seat, that we were ahead of the Emergency Exit. My seat was extremely uncomfortable."
Cons: "Female flight attendants were rude and acted like the passengers were a bother. Tried to move to an emergency row after the doors closed, which was empty and the flight attendant refused stating we had to pay extra. NOT HAPPY"
Cons: "Horrible wait if nearly 30 minutes after landing"
Pros: "The environment and efficiency."
Pros: "The entertainment is always great on delta and they have new snacks now!"
Cons: "Cabin service took a bit longer than normal and we were stuck on the tarmack for at least 30 mins waiting to take off. Not anyone’s fault, just annoying"
Pros: "Everything went wonderful. Excellent crew"
Cons: "No problems"
Pros: "The boarding was efficient"
Cons: "Three hour departure delay. No explanation given. No apology."
Cons: "The plane was delayed by more than 3 hours due to "weather problems" earlier in the day. Delta did not permit re-booking to flights that left JFK for Boston earlier, even tho there seats available, instead insisting that we had to wait for our assigned flight. Small snacks (regular Coke, no Diet) did not really compensate well."
Pros: "Entertainment, newer plane, great crew. and complimentary meal? fantastic."
Cons: "I checked in 12 hours in advance for both trips and was assigned a B seat toward the back of the plane for both, with no capability to select my seats in advance."
Pros: "Everything was pretty good like usual, except when we landed we sat on the runway for 45 minutes waiting for a gate as ours was occupied by a plane that was having mechanical issues. Not great."
Cons: "Flight was delayed for very 4 hrs sat in plane for 2.5 of those. Flight was delayed dye to strike in Barcelona. But replacement plane had fueling problems delaying the flight another 2 hours"
Pros: "left on time - landed early. Gate checked my luggage for me."
Pros: "Complimentary meal and entertainment, very good service from flight attendants."
Cons: "Seat 43B?! I checked in 12+ hours in advance."
Cons: "3.5 hour delay due to lack of co-pilot. No consessions for delay when asked at gate. Lack of leg room. Broken tv, I asked twice to be fix nothing was ever done."
Pros: "The flight was on schedule and landed early, and the pilot landed that plane very gently. It was quite impressive."
Cons: "I purchased a first class ticket in hopes that I would have a lot more comfort during the flight. It took me quite some time to get comfortable. The seat was ok, but I found the pillows to be very small and flat. I needed multiple pillows. The head rest was not adjustable, so I also found this to be uncomfortable. Usually when I fly AA, the headrest is adjustable. My final dislike was that the beverage selection was limited. I'm quite sure there was plenty of alcohol, but what about those customers who do not drink alcoholic beverages? I asked for hot chocolate, there was none. I asked for hot tea with honey, there wasn't any. So all in all my flight was okay, but that is solely because of the flight attendant and pilot. They did their jobs and they did an excellent job."
Pros: "Get a day in NYC"
Cons: "Two daytime flights booked so can't get to Bangor until the 9:00 pm flight tonight. Aitline only coveted one night at the hotel. Had to buy a second night so we don't have to carry our bags around all day."
Pros: "Entertainment options weren't bad. Most of the crew was polite other than one flight attendant who seemed ambivalent and unhappy to be there."
Cons: "Three hour+ flight and just one tiny bag of pretzels? And no lemon or lime wedges on the beverage cart? Plus, I have to pay extra for one checked bag. I will only fly Delta if I have to in the future. Subpar airline."
Pros: "entertainment services"
Pros: "Fantastic SFO-based crew serving Delta One cabin. They are attentive, and constantly walk around the cabin to provide service."
Cons: "Delay at JFK (first, the inbound aircraft coming late, then 2.5 hrs taxing at JFK, finally landed in SFO but the gate was occupied)."
Pros: "Plane was very clean and flight attendants were helpful and friendly."
Cons: "Delta's domestic terminal at JFK is far too crowded, even at 8AM."
Pros: "All went well with every aspect of the flight."
Pros: "There were a lot of free movie options for a 6hour flight. The tv was new and had good definition. The food offered was quite substantial. The staff kept coming around with water and asking if there was anything else we needed. They gave free blankets. The lavatories were a little larger and more well lit than other airlines."
Cons: "The seats did not recline for anyone on the plane."
Pros: "Pilot almost barrel-rolled us climbing out of JFK, so if started well enough.... Ground assistance (wheel chair) left me with a badly bruised left big toe and I didn't think we'd ever get through the TSA. The pat-down I received was more like a sexual assault and I didn't even get a happy ending. We made it to RDU, so the exercise was a success, but it was a huge hassle."
Cons: "After reading the good things, you need more bad?"
Pros: "I got a seat in the exit row with lots of leg room. The entertainment that I didn't use offered a great selection with very recent movies, etc."
Cons: "I didn't like that I had to take a bus to my terminal. I didn't like the fact that my gate was changed more than five times. I didn't like that my flight time was changed more than 15 times with no reason why until boarding time. I didn't like the fact that I did not get a seat assignment until boarding the plane. I didn't like the fact that they couldn't manage to scramble another plane and crew, but instead forced us to wait over four hours for one that was stuck somewhere else in the country."
Cons: "Most everything was excellent, however my 2 year old daughter's in seat entertainment screen wasn't working. It was a full flight and there was no option to change seats. I brought it to the flight attendants attention however she wasn't able to reset it. A 7-hour flight from NY to Zurich travelling with small children without the movies was not as pleasant as it could have been."
Pros: "The courtesy of the staff and the seats in the "delta comfort" section."
Cons: "Too many interruptions. i'm not sure if there is a way but there should be a way to only serve only those who are requesting service."
Pros: "Enjoy able"
Pros: "The leg room was great, the blanket and pillow provided was great and the crew did not disturb me."
Pros: "The amount of movies to watch"
Cons: "Seating not enough room, couldn't use the overhead lights for 7 1/2 hour flight. Ridiculous."
Cons: "The quality of customer service and efficiency was lacking at the check in counter. Wrong information was given to many passengers as far as checking in baggage and being sent to several line ques for the agent to tell me in the end that I was told the information incorrectly since the beginning. I therefore was unable to board my flight on time, got switched to a new flight and the new flight was delayed for 3.5 hours."
Pros: "I was delayed coming from an international flight and was so thankful for the help from delta at the counter and at the gate. I did lose my bag but that was my fault in the confusion of jfk. I got my bag in 2 days."
Cons: "When i got my bag back the handle wouldn't go down fully. Baggage handlers must've mishandled it and bent something."
Pros: "Really liked the plan"
Pros: "Crew was attentive, kept us informed throughout, and were friendly. Landing was smooth."
Cons: "Bathroom ran out of tissues and toilet paper halfway through the flight. Alerted the crew, and they added tp. Bathrooms seem to have gotten even narrower, barely any room to move in there! Also, we had to sit on the tarmac after landing for 30 min due to gate traffic. A few minor inconveniences, but overall tolerable."
Cons: "One crew member was running late. So we could not start boarding until she got there. Which created a chain reaction of events making the flight late. She was not a pilot. So why couldn't we begin boarding while waiting on her?"
Pros: "Delta always seems to have the most legroom between the seats - Even more than our transatlantic flight! The crew is always friendly and helpful, and nearly all our flights on Delta were on time or early."
Pros: "From the Ground crew to the Flight crew, you can feel the genuine care and thoughtfulness of everyone! They even remember you, if you fly often enough, and let you know how much they appreciate your business."
Pros: "plane had individual movies for free with each seat!"
Pros: "I didn't like anything about this flight. Only benefit of the doubt is the 2 hour delay as a runway in SF had shut down."
Cons: "We had seats at first where there was what looked like bubble gum bits stuck on one of the food trays. The flight was clearly not cleaned although it landed 2+ hours before the departure. We had to ask for a wet tissue and clean it up. That was of no use too as it wouldn't scrub off. My wife was feeling under the weather and so we asked for a blanket. The blanket was hardly a blanket and more like a towel. We then luckily could switch seats as there were 2 vacant. But, the air conditioner was leaking water in the seat to our left. The crew was callous and just stuck the passenger with some napkins saying it does that. I don't fly Delta a lot and my experience in this trip isn't inspiring much confidence."
Pros: "Pretty much nothing related to the entertainment system... It is nice that you can play movies for free over WiFi on your phone or tablet (since the in-seat system simply didn't work...), but, bizarrely, the WiFi movie selection was different from (and substantially smaller than) the seat movie selection. What's that about? And the WiFi movie scheme is way more painful than it needs to be, requiring you "check out" movies using your web browser, then switch to a separate app to actually watch the movies. Clearly the product of a company mindset whose ONLY concern is "can we check some box", with absolutely no interest in "how can we delight our customers?""
Cons: "So we get the same entertainment system all these flights use: some ghastly totally non-optimized Linux setup that was rebooted three times during the flight, took 20 minutes for each reboot, and never worked correctly after any of the reboots. (The only movie my system would ever play was the very first one, and none of the on-screen controls worked. The seat next door could choose multiple movies, but each movie froze after 40 minutes). The amazing thing is: why don't they just install a damn iPad mini or Android equivalent in the back of each seat? Would be lighter than what they have today and would work FAR better. You'd need some co-ordinating/provisioning software to provide for OTA announcements and movie updates, but basically it's not that hard... At the very least, hire a Linux-head to optimize your startup scripts! It's just sad to see this 20 minute startup process (all dumped on the screen) with its constant repetition of time-wasting startup steps that just generate errors on this plane's particular hardware setup..."
Pros: "The crew was nice. It was a pretty smooth flight."
Cons: "The entertainment system didn't work. Very long flight to not have entertainment. No plugs for personal devices. It looked like an older plane."
Pros: "Movie selection"
Cons: "Communication from you all. I missed my flight because of the terrible instructions and communication"
Pros: "Crew was excellent !! They ran a tight ship!"
Cons: "Seats need to be replaced ... no padding!"
Pros: "Very nice crew. Seats were okay a bit tight, but, fine."
Pros: "The plane was clean, comfortable and the staff were good."
Cons: "WestJet was 30 minutes late to board. Also, if you're going Int'l during a peak moment, give yourself at least 2 hours to process your entry. It's crazy how many people are going thru JFK."
Pros: "Crew & direct flight"
Cons: "Food selection & entertainment"
Pros: "a very calm flying experience. no bells and whistles but consistently friendly and mostly efficient"
Cons: "We were delayed by roughly two hours, sat on the tarmac with no internet or other entertainment, services etc. This made it difficult as I was looking to get home on time and complete work in the air."

Cons: "Not a thing."
Pros: "Great service, on time, comfortable seats."

Pros: "westjet connect to watch a tv show or the news or something"

Cons: "Good airlines"

Pros: "Nothing at all. Boarding time changed 3times. Nothing nothing nothing good."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Inflight internet was a great plus."

Pros: "Everything was excelente very nice personal."
Cons: "Lack of access to entertainment without having our own personal device to view and having to download an app to be able to view entertainment"
Cons: "4 hour flight at dinner time. No food. What were they thinking? They ran out of sandwiches after the first row of passengers. Why even bother with menus when there is no food to support?"
Pros: "Check in was fast, on time, landed early, entertainment worked"
Pros: "We did not have to wait long in Calgary after landing and arriving at our luggage carousel. Our two bags were not only first off the belt but side-by-side and we were away in no time-- that never happens!"
Pros: "Good helpful crew. Reasonably sane boardingon a full d flight."
Pros: "The plane had free access behind every seat to charge devices and the service was friendly."

Pros: "How extremely nice the flight attendants were. They went above and beyond their scope of practice to ensure each person on the flight, felt as comfortable as possible. Thx #Nancy and #Heather"
Pros: "Flight was great. Calgary customs was awful. The lines were extremely long. We boarded our plane at 9:50 and departure was at 10."
Cons: "Customs at Calgary Canada was terribly slow. Almost missed our plane."
Pros: "Our choice to pay the upgrade to Plus seating was WELL worth the cost. My husband and I had never flown 'first class' before and thought on this almost 9 hour flight we would give it a try. Wow! Seat comfort was fantastic. Service was wonderful. Food was great. We were made to feel like royalty."
Pros: "flight on time"
Pros: "Awesome crew, chill experience !"
Pros: "A few days before our flight to Halifax which was originally scheduled with a stop over in Toronto, we received an email from Westjet that they were putting us on the direct flight. This enabled us to avoid the Toronto bottleneck and get to our destination on time. Thank you Westjet."
Pros: "Boarding was very efficient"
Cons: "The toilets were very dirty"
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "Check in is brutal. Ruins then entire experience."
Pros: "On time ...."
Cons: "West Jet satellite tv not working ..."
Pros: "Friendly, helpful cabin staff"
Cons: "In flight entertainment worked only intermittently"
Pros: "Good cabin staff, friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Entertainment system didn't work properly and charging port only worked part of the time"
Pros: "Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Flight delayed by 5 hours last minute, making my layover 17 hours long. The delay caused my car rental place to give away my reservation so I had to wait an additional 2.5 hours to get a rental car. The primary reason for my travel was a wedding and although I made the actual wedding, I missed most of the pre-wedding activities that I had rsvped for. The seats were really uncomfortable, particularly the lack of low back support. I was very sore after the flight and was unable to sleep despite having been awake for over 24 hours prior to the flight. We were finally given meal tickets but was unable to use as everything closed at 10pm."
Pros: "Overall easy navigation."
Cons: "More signs for terminal to terminal navigation."
Cons: "We had too little time to switch flights. We were stressed and had to run a lot in order to make it to required connecting flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but it's not even delay, but the terrible incompetent unprofessional way this was handled."
Pros: "Boarded online. Upgraded to a Comfort seat in and exit row. So wasn't cramped but the entertainment/movie icon happened to be missing from my monitor only. So 5 and a 1/2 flight with nothing to watch. The food tray was also pretty filthy. Otherwise a solid trip. Nice, accomadating crew and with a female pilot! Loved that!"
Pros: "American airlines managed to get me to my destination."
Cons: "It was an awful ride. The food was horrendous. The plane was ancient. No outlets, no personal TVs. The plane looks like it was from the 1990s."
Pros: "The crew and captain were lovely and communicative."
Cons: "Our plane was very old and there were engine problems that kept us grounded for hours at JFK. I was terrified the entire time we were in the air that something might go wrong. Additionally, the air conditioner worked very poorly."
Cons: "Terrible plane. Old. No tv. No charge points"
Pros: "Departed and arrived on time. Friendly, efficient crew."
Cons: "Seats and aisles very tight."
Cons: "Take off was delayed for nearly an hour and the flight re-routed because of weather. We had scheduled plenty of time to make our connecting flight but we weren't updated on how much later we would be. This caused a lot of worry and stress not knowing when we would land or where our connecting gate would be. Fortunately the gates were next to one another and it all worked out. There were supposed to be usb charging connectors under the seat but I felt around for nearly 30 minutes and couldn't find them. Nobody could."
Pros: "- Got to the destination early."
Cons: "- time it took to get off the plane. - time it took for baggage to come out. - being forced to check in my carry on bag that had fragile items."
Pros: "The boarding was quick"
Cons: "I am surprised that an 8 hr international flight, had no WIfi.. I had to continually ask and check the time with Crew members. This needs to change when the average seat is $800-900 and the flight holds 35 seats. AA is raking in WAY to much money to be this cheap. No WiFi and having to look up to the middle isle to watch a child's movie on repeat " Guardians of the Galaxy." My neck and back were in extreme discomfort from the 8 hr flight back to NYC. If AA had headrest monitors and WiFi this could be avoided. Its 2017 stop being cheap!"
Cons: "I didn't get home til 1am bc of this flight delay. A lot of the passengers were on the final leg of overseas travel, so we had a really hard time with the delays. Boarding was inefficient. Cree counted us like 6 times. Why is that necessary? Plane was old and uncomfortable."
Pros: "The crew was professional and very accommodating."
Cons: "Cramped quarters."
Cons: "Seats were too small which made it hard to get comfortable."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The smell of the bathroom"
Pros: "Nice crew clean airplane"
Cons: "Initial flight was cancelled after 2 hours delay. My next flight was scheduled the earliest possible by AA which was 24 hours later. No transportation,hotel or miles compensation for this. I had work and responsabilities the next day. TThe scheduled trip was supposed to take off at 7:45. Boarding started late and was very slow. My bag fit the meassurements and still was forced to check it (which I did not want to do as I did not want to be waiting an hour for my bag at my arrival as I had work early the next day. In addition there was airplaine traffic as it was "rush hour" instead of flying at 7:45 we departed almost at 9pm!!!! Have to pay for food Quality of tv monitors very poor And in an uncomfortable position No movie options No wifi although stated the aircraft has Non functioning electrical plug"
Pros: "The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I was able to change my seat to sit with my husband because there were empty seats."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that children sitting behind us weren't told to stop kicking the chair. They also spoke loudly when it was quiet and thus woke me up from my sleep. We were delayed leaving due to unforeseen circumstances, but our arrival time was only 15 minutes later. There was a lot of turbulence during this flight."
Pros: "All of the flight attendants on American Airlines were very helpful and professional."
Cons: "The American crew made a long flight comfortable and bearable"
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "The planes are old. Needless to say there is no Wi-Fi, and the only entertainment on a 7.5 hour flight was a tiny tv in the center of aisle. 1987 tech in 2017. Our plane was delayed for 8 hours due to a broken hydrolics system, and no compensation for additional expenses due to equipment failure was offered."
Pros: "I like américain airline"
Cons: "I don't like the transfer between the aéroport it take long time plus I pay the ticket for the bus when I ask British crew they sad is free. And I arive to my second fly in last minute.clise to miss the flight"
Cons: "The check in process at JFK was a disaster. The kiosk check in machines were constantly malfunctioning, where to line up was unclear, and staff acted frustrated. After several failed attempts with the kiosks you have to wait in line to check in at the counter anyways. It would have saved almost an hour of my time to just go straight to the counter-- had I been allowed to. I wanted to check a bag which contained some fragile items. Several bottles of wine which I wrapped in bubble wrap and cushioned with my packed clothes. I requested a "Fragile" sticker to be put on my bag. I was told "We don't do that here". So I asked if they handle ALL bags with extreme care and I was laughed at and told to go on my way. When I got my bag at my destination-- the outside of my leather suitcase was sliced to the lining. There were scuff marks and torn leather. My wine had been completely shattered. Not just a crack in the bottle, but flattened completely. My clothes were stained, my bag ruined. I don't know if putting a fragile sticker on would have prevented this, but I don't understand why they just "don't do that". We are trusting our property to the airline when we check bags. I will never trust American Airlines ever again. They don't want to know if I have anything fragile, and they don't care when I tell them."
Cons: "Never made it to San Juan to catch my cruise. To top things off I was a ship for two days without my luggage and underwears. Never again!!! Thank you JetBlue!!!"
Pros: "Friendly and attentive crew. On time."
Cons: "Upgraded seat to be more comfortable. Very, very cold. Uncomfortable cold. Apparently it was an old plane and adjustments to temperature were difficult. No individual tv screens. At one point the steward lost control of drink cart and crashed into my personal headphones which he broke."
Pros: "Smooth ride and friendly staff"
Cons: "We were a little delayed"
Pros: "Friendly crew and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Older plane without individual entertainment choice. No food other than a single bag of pretzels offered."
Pros: "Excellent friendly crew, was able to get rest on an overnight flight with my wife, good selection of movies."
Cons: "It really wasn't "On-Time", but you couldn't tell that from the monitors. (I'm sure you like to keep your statistics "clean", but they shouldn't be dishonest.) A TSA? agent had us initially wait in a long incorrect line after we picked up our passport scanner sheets even though we told her we had a tight connection. Afterwards, she moved us along with a few others. That line could have swamped us!"
Cons: "4 hours delay and a plane with no tv or any kind of entertainment."
Cons: "Your partner vayama doesn't provide the terminal or airline. Went to Iberia/ terminal 7 just to realize it was AA/terminal 8."
Pros: "The view"
Cons: "3 hour delay - no compensation. Very old plane - no televisions, communal in-flight entertainment. Uncomfortable seats, dirty tables, loose arm rests. Food was outdated and terrible."
Pros: "Early departure and arrival, mostly comfortable flight, satisfying food, helpful crew"
Cons: "I did not have the option to reserve an aisle seat in advance, and I was stuck with a middle seat."
Cons: "The flight to NY took too long and I missed the connecting flight to DC. There was no one to help speed up the process through security and customs so I could make my flight instead, I was just rebooked for a flight 4 hours later. I have to drive to Richmond, VA tonight to make work tommorrow. I hate this neglect towards time."
Pros: "Great staff. Decent food. Great entertainment selection"
Cons: "Boarding process was a bit messy"
Cons: "My flight was changed to a different airline owned by Alaska. The new airline did not have my reservation information. If was a bit of a headache when checking in."
Pros: "Customer service excellence The flight attendants were very attentive"
Pros: "When I arrived at the airport to see the scheduled 9:30a departure was pushed back to 1pm, the gate crew did a good job of keeping us updated and they even provided lunch! The plane was undergoing maintenance but they found another plane and did not have to cancel the flight, and ultimately got us to our destination safely. Crew was very nice."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 4 hours so my half day of travel became a full day, half of which was mostly wasted at the airport. Would rather have been with my family than sitting at the airport."
Cons: "My family and I make I JFK -LAX reservation 4 months ago. We came to LAX three hours before our flight to make sure we get good seats. At the checking kiosk we did not have the option to pick seats , there was a message on the boarding pass that said to go see boarding agent. So we did, appreantly they over booked the trip and they were looking for volunteers to give up their seats!! Why did we have to be on stand by if our booking was confirmed 4 months ago!! They made us wait until the gate was closed and then they found us seats . This trip caused us mental anguish I will never fly American Airlines again"
Pros: "Never made this flight they rerouted."
Pros: "Reserved seating at time of boiling so all 5 of us sitting together."
Cons: "When we got our boarding passes we were all sitting in different places. I cannot understand how you sit a 3 and 4 year old away from their parents. Shocking oversight."
Pros: "Comfort. We had a bulk head seat. Newer plane"
Cons: "No food offered . Not even for purchase."
Cons: "The stewardesses repeatedly rammed their cart into my seat. They were so rude. it was appalling. I will never fly american airlines again"

Cons: "Delayed almost 3 hours."
Pros: "Flight was on time and service was good"
Cons: "Airline refused to honor ticket purchased through vayama. Kayak. American seems to be in some kind of work slowdown and they tried to make as many people as possible miss their flights. It was awful. I will never fly american again. Awful."
Cons: "The crew i ask for a coffee with half and half and he tell me that is not a starbucks horrible fligth departure delayed"
Cons: "The cabin crew were quite unpleasant. Seats are terribly crowded and uncomfortable"
Pros: "It was meh...."

Cons: "Food, conections"
Pros: "Boarding was fast"
Cons: "Long takeoff and seats were to close"
Cons: "We didn’t have food on our flight, but ordered it at a cost. We didn’t get the food or pay for it."
Pros: "Crew was great."
Cons: "The tv on my red eye was not working and the light kept me up."
Pros: "My economy plus seat was good (once I finally got it) and for all the hassle they did free tv for the whole plane. THey found a new plane FAST!"
Cons: "They changed gates last minute - plane was in for maintenance and slight delay - then cancelled that plane - did the series of 15 minute additional delays. They found a new plane - changed the gates (big distance) again - and 'the computer' had reseated 1/2 the plane. DISTASTER to fix."
Cons: "crew at the airport and on the plane, not very helpful"
Pros: "Selection of films and TV"
Cons: "Late boarding, but no apology. Drinks service, but no snacks"
Cons: "I was lead to believe I was booking a flight on lufthansa. It turned out it was United in a confirmation email a few weeks following the purchase. Then 24 hours prior to boarding, a notification comes in that I am flying Air Brussels. This leaves me with confusion - which airport terminal to go to, where to check in, who to call, etc. When I finally arrive to the airport at JFK, I find there is no Air Brussels Check in and that I need to go to United. But United no longer operates out of JFK, so I was finally directed to the British Airways terminal to check in with Eurowings. The flight was supposedly a Eurowings flight in collaboration with Lufthansa and United but operated by Brussels Airlines. I’ve never before experienced this miscommunication and confusion with one single flight, especially in my home country. When I booked the flight, it was quite clear it was Lufthansa and I paid Lufthansa prices. I was very disappointed overall with the experience leading me up to boarding time and had I known it was not a Lufthansa plane and crew, I would not have booked it. I hope you can I understand my frustration as this was poorly communicated and manasged and was quite misleading from the start. I would appreciate some compensation or recognition for the confusion as I will no longer be using Kayak or third party booking sites due to the way this was handled. I am a loyal Kayak user, but this was just too much and nothing like I’ve ever experienced before."
Pros: "Flight attendants were competent"
Cons: "The drinks for purchase were absorbant"
Pros: "I made it home alive"
Cons: "Well constancy gate changes in the airport to getting on a hot plane with no air going, then to waiting an hour for the plane to start because of the power cable (still with no air) crew didn’t give us any update from the very first one, all of a sudden we are moving, but only shortly because then we waited another 30 minutes to actually take off. Once in the air it took forever to get water, just pretzels for snacks and a horrible attitude by the staff. DO NOT DLY WITH THEM."
Cons: "Movie kept crashing and I had to restart the app"
Pros: "Flight left on time and landed early. Attendants were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "Food choices were very limited for a 4 hour flight."
Pros: "Flight was on time and I loved going through US customs in Ireland, so that it made my connection to my USA flight a breeze."
Cons: "Too many crying babies and children. (Flights need a section for young children and infants.) I can handle a 2 hour flight, but not 6+ hours of constant noise) I did not use it, but the entertainment system kept locking up and the flight attendants needed to reboot. If I had been depending on this entertainment it would not have been good. The flight attendants did not come through the cabin enough to pick up trash."
Pros: "Winter storm commencement in Chicago during take off didn't daunt the pros piloting this Lufthansa flight. Smiling, courteous service, good food and wine along with space to rest has made Lufthansa my new go-to for flying to Europe."
Cons: "Economy seats mean tiny unresponsive video screens. Playing a game of Mah-jong on the in-flight screen is nearly impossible. Bring your own tablet"
Cons: "Flight left 5 hours hate which included 2+ hours on tarmac being fed nonsensical updates by pilot. Planes entertainment system wasn't operational"
Pros: "Love that they allow military and parents with small children on first."
Pros: "Pushed out on time and made it home early"
Cons: "Flight attendants were non existent. 2 water services in a 4 hour flight is ridiculous."
Cons: "The United Boarding Agent repeatedly warned about the "SMALL" carry on compartments on the CJR aircraft and literally insisted we tag our carry ons to be set aside on boarding even though we knew they fitted OK. AS A RESULT when we got to Calgary we had to wait at the over size luggage racks for our carry ons to be delivered instead of them being set up for us as we left the aircraft which is normal!! Very frustrating!!"
Cons: "Tv didn't work no entertainment options on personal device"
Pros: "The crew was working efficient and tried to respond to request"
Cons: "The plane was freezing cold. I came prepared but had to hunker down under blankets even though I had two shirts and a jacket on. This is not acceptable for any flight or airline. I caught a cold on my return trip due to this. I'm disappointed as it seemed like a newer plane. The stewardess acknowledged this but was unable to get our section to warm up. Everyone in my area of the plane was Ice cold."
Cons: "My luggage didn't make connnection."
Pros: "The crew were very nice and we had a safe flight."
Cons: "The seats were very hard and uncomfortable! Customers should bring a pillow."
Cons: "Didn't like having to buy food on an international flight."
Pros: "On-time departure and courteous crew. Smooth flying on this leg of our trip."
Cons: "I don't have any major complaints about this flight."
Cons: "1hr 10min. Delay on the tarmak. Late into Calgary."
Pros: "The boarding process went well."
Cons: "The plane clearly had not been cleaned, not even superficially. There were stains and crumbs on the tray, there was garbage in the small seat pocket and the seat was damp. Very unpleasant."
Cons: "Flight Attendant was REALLY late. We had to delay boarding to wait for her. 15 minutes. then it took longer to wait for gate check -- green tag bag - than if I had checked the bag. when we finally got the gate check bags and headed through customs the checked bags were all on the carousel. And I have Nexus. So Customs was 3 minutes. NOT a good process. Figure it out YYC international terminal!!!"
Pros: "Nice seats - and some room to move and relax."
Cons: "Being an Air Canada customer and having bought an Air Canada ticket - I do expect that either the entertainment will be free on my iPad or included - particularly when I have to PAY to get a decent seat. It isn't right that entertainment isn't included for the extra price!"
Pros: "almost everything"
Cons: "the omlete was so nasty and the sausage thing tasted horrible"
Pros: "Once I finally got my flight got it seemed short and sweet"
Cons: "Entertainment is very expensive... no distractions from that end for my work though...silver lining I guess. Internet is similarly very expensive"
Cons: "Put on stand-by despite booking flight months ahead of time, just because we did not check in 24 hours ahead of time."
Pros: "Good in-flight entertainment using the app. Decent staff overall."
Cons: "On our booking through Kayak, this was only listedas an Air canada flight, however, when I couldn't check in online and phoned Air canada (which took 30min), they said it was operated by United and had to check in on united.com. Why was there. o mention of this?? It took me phoning to find out what airline I was flying with! Also, a United staff person told us we didn't need to touch our bags in calgary en route tonour final Saskatoon destination, which was wrong."
Cons: "Not like Air Canada ... I can tell the staff are tired of their jobs. Entertainment you needed to pay for. Really bare bones"
Pros: "Co passengers friendliness"
Cons: "The tiny cup with more ice than refreshment. Small bottles of water would be great - less likely to spill over in bad weather and thirst would also be quenched. Lack of luggage space for those of us with the correct allowance hand luggage instead of all the extra large pieces because people don't want to go to baggage claims or pay for baggage. Truly their suitcase not paid for is the same as mine paid for. Difference is the inconvenience of having to keep my hand luggage at my feet because of the larger pieces filled by passengers in group 1, 2, and 3 over my designated seat area."
Cons: "With maintenance delays, I wouldn't make any connections."
Pros: "iwheelchair and cart to get to my plane because of a knee injuryhad a wheelchair or cart to get me through the airport"
Pros: "We arrived safely along with our baggage."
Cons: "Major weather issues so delayed boarding and flight. That's understandable, but poor, often rude, gate operations. Often no, inaccurate, or misleading information. They seemed confused, as if this were the first time event."
Pros: "Nothing because I had to reschedule the flight"
Cons: "This connection was delayed without adequate notice which caused me to get stuck in Chicago for a night and book all new flights for the next day. According to the information I received from the attendants at the gate, maintenance knew the airplane had issues but no communication until the flight began to get delayed was given. I had an adequate layover (3+ hours) so I didn't worry until it eroded away to the point where I could not make my connection."
Pros: "Never got there"
Cons: "Never got there"
Pros: "Better leg room than I recalled last time I flew this airline! No claustrophobia! Much better than our overseas leg. Airline attendants were sweeter than sugar which was a nice change after Air NZ. Purchased meal (sandwich)was reasonably priced and satisfying"
Cons: "The entertainment system was nice but would like to have seen more choices (and episodes for sitcoms). It was a 5 hour flight and the wifi wasn't very strong compared to similar flights, so we were very reliant on the entertainment system."
Pros: "Price of flight"
Cons: "Space between aeats"
Pros: "The flight is on time."
Cons: "Our flight had a "mechanical delay" which drug on for several hours (every 30 min there would be another 30 min delay). This eventually meant we would miss our connection to Munich and had to be rescheduled to the following day. The next day we had another round of "mechanical delays" and just barely made the connection."
Cons: "I wouldn't know since I wasn't on it and I'm still in the airport waiting for my flight. I have to try to get comfortable on the floor right now."
Pros: "Nice new plane"
Cons: "2 hour delay due to a name discrepancy on a passenger. Not fair to keep everyone waiting for one person"
Cons: "Left about 15 minutes late."
Pros: "Flight was on time, crew was courteous and polite."
Cons: "They ran out of overhead bin fast. No on board TV"
