Cons: "Old recliner seats."
Pros: "Flight cancelled multiple times, no explanations only lies."
Cons: "To be treated like garbage."
Cons: "A rating of one start is too much for this airline. Avianca caused me to miss my flight in LAX, refused to help me reach my ultimate destination for which I paid them hundreds of dollars to do, nor did they offer to credit my losses for which they were responsible. Customer Service was as useless as the individuals in person that I dealt with. I never made it to my destination because I was forced to return home to San Francisco, unable to see my wife-to-be in Brasil. I will never fly with this airline again."

NEVER AGAIN,"
Cons: "Flight got delay 3 hours and lost connections avianca behaves really bad and did not provided the appropriate remuneration"
Cons: "My flight was changed from having 1 layover, to having 2 and getting back much later in the day. When I got to the airport, my flight had been changed again to have 3 layovers and getting back the next morning. When I spoke with a representative at the Rio airport she said she couldn't do anything for me but to ask at my next layover where they could switch me to a direct flight. When I asked at that airport, they said they didn't even fly direct flights. Worst airline experience I've ever had."
Pros: "That I was able to stop in Bogota on my way to Rio"

Pros: "flight was smooth and on time."
Cons: "the food"
Cons: "It took two hours in line to be told our flight was cancelled. After waiting another hour we were told they did not have alternative flights for us. They refused to have conversation and would randomly leave to the back office for 20 minutes at a time or stop assisting people at all. There were people screaming at the ticketing counter and security was called. In the end we spent 14 hours waiting there for a new flight, got split up and sent to different countries, had to miss work, and were not given any flight credit, accommodation, or even an apology."
Pros: "That the flights depart on time"
Cons: "My luggage did not arrive in Buenos Aires and the service to claim was not good or emphatic. I think that the luggage need to be tracked in all stages specially when you are travel doing connections."
Pros: "The flights wers on time"
Pros: "Food was really good."
Cons: "In the seats close to the bathroom of economic class it was impossible to sleep. The sound from the discgarge was horrible!!!! In a flight of 6h it is really important."
Cons: "I lost my flight because I did not receive any notification that avianca wasn't allowing people to get on the plane to Bogota from Rio de janeiro without a yellow fever vaccine certificate. Keeping in mind that my departure flight was from Bogota with the same airline. So I lost my return flight and avianca wouldn't give me any discount on getting a new one."

Cons: "Attendants could be rude at times"
Pros: "Lights were dim to facilitate sleeping"
Cons: "N/A"
Pros: "Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "Flight was delayed by 30 minutes for No Reason"
Pros: "First of all, not sure if is because of the flight is to La Havana, but before boarding a member of Copa is checking all passengers to size them the luggage, a means you are able to carry on 10 kg, but even if they won't force you to check it your carry on bag, besides once you are in the plane it wasn´t any air conditioning, there were about 100+ people without air conditioning and even during the flight to La Havana, just when they arrived requested to close the windows to make the air conditioning flowing on the plane!!!! What was that???? I mean 2.15hrs without it and then they request something that they don´t provide!!!!"

Pros: "If you get in line early, there might be overhead bin space."

Pros: "Good flight, fast, comfortable."
Pros: "The flight from Rio to Panama was very good. The only complaint I have is the food, which is too simple and it could taste a little better. All my flights were on time and arrived in time at the destinations. They have an excellent option for entertainment with good movies and documentaries."
Cons: "No fue informado que el asiento 10 no reclinaba ."
Pros: "Roomy seats."
Cons: "One bathroom had a faulty toilet. The other had a door that would not lock. Some seat back pockets were in bad shape."

Turned back at the air port in Rio I had to spend an extra 13 days in Rio de Janeiro at my expense, three to see doctor and get vacine, plus ren day waiting period."
Cons: "To change ticket I had to pay change fee plus fare difference. Copa said it was not their responsibility to notify passengers of health alerts and Kayak should be responsible. Needless to say I was on the hook for the time and the bill. I have flown Copa with satisfaction a number of times but this is enough to discourage me from ever flying them again and possibly ever using Kayak again."

Pros: "Same as above. Good service."
Pros: "The leg from RIO to ,Panama the crew crew not pleasant, the service was horrible, they started serving drinks to passengers from the first row to,the back and since the plane was completely full it took forever and the 2 flight attend that were in the galley, refused to, give me a cup of water I had to beg for it saying please I Need any liquid (since I was felling nayseas and needed to,take my medicaction) sol she gave me (practically through me a cup of a warm apple juioe) not even offered ice cubes, plus etc"

Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was polite, funny and social"
Cons: "maybe just a little more space in between the seats."
Pros: "Entertainment options were good and system worked well Flight left and arrived on time"

Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "They should be on time but we left 30 minutes later."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 7 hours"
Pros: "Crew speaking french"
Cons: "Check in process is a disaster. The passenger is asked to even weight the luggage to be said by the machine to gonto a counter without good reason: the only thing missing with LATAM is to pilote the plane. Awful."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I could have been warned that you need to get a pass to go to Hanga Roa before you can board. I had checked because I had heard there was a fee but upon investigation, it was said that this requirement had been eliminated. Wrong!! You still need the pass but you don’t get charged a fee. The extra time required for this tedious meant we missed our chance to check bags and do incurred hundreds of dollars more to get on the same flight the next day. No Bueno!!! This should be highlighted up front!!"
Cons: "The boarding in Rio de Janeiro was great, the land crew was very helpful. In Lima it was below par, the crew was not helpful at all, and no warnings or communications to when to board. Had to wait an hour inside the plane for some sort of maintenance."
Pros: "The crew at Juliaca was pretty rude, inefficient and dishonest. Charge me an extra $30 for a carry on, which i couldn't even take on board, according to the woman at desk who was not accommodating at all. Seats are most uncomfortable we've sat in decades. Slowww check in staff."
Cons: "Everything, starting with efficient and friendly enployees. To better quality planes and better amenities on board."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and attentive."
Pros: "Forced me to check my carry on even though it was perfectly legal"
Pros: "Yes, they did"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Flight on time Departure & arrival"
Cons: "Two seats in every set of rows"
Pros: "Puntual"
Pros: "The crew was amazing"
Pros: "We bought "priority boarding" and this was key, because we could board early, choose good seats (exit row) and take our bags on board."
Cons: "It's a short flight, only water offered on board."
Pros: "Nothing. My advice is to look for alternatives. Latam has gone from good to worse. Believe it or not, low cost are giving a better service"
Cons: "Everything. It is a mess. Delays, baggage problems, aircraft passenger entry... the list goes on"
Pros: "The crew was awful, they did not let me board my flight despite me getting there at a reasonable time."
Cons: "They could have let me board my flight. I missed my international flight because of this and had to pay a heavy fee."
Pros: "The food and in-fight entertainment"
Cons: "Comfortable seats"
Pros: "They're very professional I would recommend to everyone"
Cons: "Free soft drinks it was $10 brasilian money"
Cons: "Always not clear if the carry on are included. Always getting a surprise to pay $35 for carry on. Offered an upgrade for $15 took it to find out no more leg room only placed at front of plane.. No entertainment on 3 plus hours flight. Overall lots to be willing to upgrade."
Pros: "The seats were typical airliner seats - good enough but more leg room would be nice. Our flights ran on time, and the crew was excellent. Our experience at the Lima Airport was much improved from our first stop there."
Pros: "Food"
Cons: "Better pillows"
Pros: "The flight attendants were nice"
Cons: "The gate people were indifferent, bordering on rude. A bag which I’ve used for hundreds of flights as a carry on “weighed too much” and suddenly required checkin with a charge despite it being a carry on for the first leg. No one could explain to me the difference of the weight in the overhead versus the belly of the plane. I will NEVER fly LATAM again and will make sure that I spend a lot more than $30 for all of my future travels in their region. Too bad that their rules are designed to steal from the customer. I won’t be fooled again."
Pros: "Amazing service from every staff member I met! Super polite and professional! A shout to Adriana and Matheus for making me feel so welcome!! Thank you and the whole crew for a great experience!"
Cons: "It was great!"
Pros: "El segundo avión más fonfortable"
Cons: "Cancelación de vuelo, salida tarde del aeropuerto, no brindan si no agua. Salida tarde de cartagena. No informan nada."

Cons: "Our bags didn’t make our flight. We are very disappointed."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Pros: "Smooth flight good staff"
Cons: "Very cramped seating"
Pros: "The Crew tried to work with what they have."
Cons: "1. Plane to small. there was no room. 2. Flight was delayed for 2 hors. 3. my suitcase was sent down to storage and my back pack have to be put under my feet. but there was two more tenet my seat already. 4. We have to board the plane in the middle of the airport. and have to walk a lot to get the gate signed. 5. Once arrived I had to connect to American Airlines flight and have to walk one mille and change to get to the other side of the airport. It will be ok, but I was with a 3 year old minor and I have to deal with this and the child"
Pros: "In-flight entertainment is very good with a good selection of movies and TV shows."
Cons: "Flight was first delayed 1 hour then jumped to 3 more hours. Gate was constantly changing so we relaxed at a nearby gate. Never heard a boarding call. Then there's a security check right before you get on the plane so we have to throw away bottles of water that were bought in the terminal after passing initial security. Ridiculous!! How are we to keep hydrated on a 10 hour flight without being able to bring water on the plane?? The flight attendants should, at least, come around with cups of water. Service on LAN was excellent 10 years ago but has deteriorated when it changed to LATAM."
Pros: "the flight was quiet"
Cons: "only a sandwich and 1 glass of coke for a four hours flight? And if ask for a beer you has to wait until the end of the services... VERY POOR"
Pros: "I like the service, the staff are more helpful to us and lots of different from other airline services. Especially they treat every passenger equally or all the same with given out for any extra cost e.g. food, drinks, entertainement any thing we need while we are up in the air needs. Different from the first class section service in special airfare cost. Love to fly every time when I want to visit my families around the world. Keep it up the good work LATAM Fika Maiava - Sydney"
Pros: "The crew and gate persons were very good. Meal was very tasty and it was nice to eat with metal utensils."
Cons: "Seat size and the fact that the passengers in front smacked their seats on to our laps."
Pros: "The individual who helped us rearrange flights in Lima was very helpful."
Cons: "The original flight was cancelled the morning of the flight. Caused issues with an added overnight stay and time to reschedule everything."
Pros: "It was not physically uncomfortable."
Cons: "The flight was delayed, moved, and when it finally took off it was re routed back to São Paulo with almost zero communication. We were herded around with attendants who had no idea why our flight was canceled mid air and we had to fend for ourselves for rebooking."
Cons: "The seats are a bit too close. A person next to me elbowed me the entire flight."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I took 5 flights with LATAM during the last 2 weeks. All flights delayed over 1 hours for no reason."
Pros: "Service, movies for a flight of this length."
Cons: "My flight was delayed more than 9 hours, and I do understand the fact that this happens. What I can't understand is LATAM waiting until I arrived to the airport to tell me that it was delayed (instead of calling or sending an email) and told me that it is MY FAULT for not reviewing the website. In addition, at the counter they told us that we didn't need to do a line again for dropping bags in the morning. However, when we arrived the next morning we had to do a 40 minute line. The pain was compounded by a member of the staff yelling at me for asking him to be moved to a quicker line because I could miss my flight. I've always flown on Lan (now Latam) and I've never had this bad experience before. I'm really disappointed!!"
Pros: "Crew was very nice, attentive, helpful,friendly. Food was good not great. Business seats lay flat."
Cons: "Business seats, when laying flat, were not particularly comfortable. Rather hard. The only complaint."
Pros: "First of all, all of the information regarding the flight listed the carrier as Latam. However, the flight was actually an American flight. Based on the confusion I missed my outgoing flight. Thereafter I purchased a oneway ticket to Medellin on another airline only to learn that they cancelled my return flight. They wanted to charge me almost $600 to rebook! I ended purchasing a ticket with different carrier. Money paid to Latam was wasted."
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "I was a little confused with the checking, due to the use of the new machines. I am not confortable using computers."
Pros: "The crew was nice, the food tasted great, and they had a variety of movies to watch!"
Cons: "There's not much I didn't like."
Cons: "The flight from Lisa was cancelled and the 18 hour wait in Lina was horrible!!! All day at the airport!"
Pros: "I travel a lot and for an international flight during lunch time I expected more than a small sandwich. Small airplane (A320) so no personal screen and tight spaces between seats. Service was ok. Flight ok. I miss big airplanes between Chile and Brasil"
Cons: "I travel a lot and for an international flight during lunch time I expected more than a small sandwich. Small airplane (A320) so no personal screen and tight spaces between seats. Service was ok. Flight ok. I miss big airplanes between Chile and Brasil"
Pros: "The staff at the airport was very helpful. I got in the wrong line (domestic instead of international) but they still checked me in and my luggage. I had to go over to the international line to drop my luggage and didn't have to get in line once again. The crew was very nice and I was impressed that we received a meal for a 4 hour flight. Although I understand it was considered an international flight, I wasn't expecting a full blown meal. SUPER GREAT!"
Pros: "Good service during flight."
Cons: "They changed the flight departure time for 3 hours early. The only way I found out was by checking that morning to ensure the flight was departing on time... When I asked the ticket agent why the change in time, her response was that the scheduled departure time is only estimated......!!"
Pros: "The plane was super clean comfortable and with good entertainment, food was good and the crew was great."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because the plane wasn't there at time, those things happen and it's fine but they never told us what was happening. we had to wait in line for another hour, without any announcement."
Pros: "the take off and landing were good"
Cons: "Because we didn't know Spanish, we were confused as to which line we should board for the flight. After waiting for 15 minutes in the line, we were told we should have been on another line. there were alot of english-speaking persons on the plane and it would have been good to make announcements in english also."
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: "Boarding was handled very efficiently"
Cons: "The plane looked very dated. But otherwise it was a pleasant experience"
Pros: "Quick flight. Friendly cabin crew."
Cons: "Nothing."
Pros: "Friendly service"
Pros: "Seat super small, could not avoid touching other passengers, I am not obese."
Cons: "One toilet for 120 economy class passengers, no beverages served complimentary, even a glass of water cost you. Unbelievable cheap, crappy airline now, what a downfall for such a carrier."
Cons: "The flight was delayed by three hours; not sure how to fix that but it was annoying. For some reason the arm rests in the middle of the seats would not go fully back and I felt like the flight attendants were talking down to me. They also could have been having a bad day too with the flight. :/"
Pros: "Again staff at mobility assistance were excellent! We were late leaving and pilot made uptime.They really seemed to care about passengers"
Cons: "When allotting seats to seniors, BA could have been more considerate and not placed them in middle seats"
Cons: "BA need to stop the silly practice of boarding according to status - it’s inefficent and leaves me with the impression that BA is obsessed with pseudo hierarchy."
Pros: "Crew, food"
Cons: "I had to pay for the luggage. I thought it was included."
Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "no communication and a few apologies6"
Cons: "I was not able to make this flight due to many technical difficulties, waiting in lines at the airport for over 4 hours, and having British Airways automatically change my flight booking Gatwick (which is 45 minutes from where this second leg would have been!)."
Cons: "Seats were so tight and uncomfortable. This was an 8+ hour flight and it was so hard to rest."
Pros: "The staff was very friendly, professional and personal. Had a great seat with extra leg room and the washrooms were always clean. The staff were generous and prompt with the food and beverages and very accommodating."
Cons: "It was a long haul flight so the seat got a little uncomfortable near the end."
Pros: "BA is reliable in many respects. 1- Timely 2- Friendly staff 3- Decent food served in a timely manner 4- In a BA flight, you know exactly what you get"
Cons: "The airlines are pushing people to upgrade with those ever shrinking seats. I had a slightly above average size gentleman seated next to me and the seat was so tight he had to totally take over the shared arm rest and our shoulders were rubbing most of the time. That's not a way to spend 9+ hours"
Cons: "Bit of delay."
Pros: "I enjoyed all of the amenities provided on this flight, the service and food was great and I got to enjoy 3 new movies I'd been meaning to see."
Cons: "No complaints here! It was a great way to start off our vacation."
Cons: "I noticed that a rubber beading of a sliding part of the left wing was worn out and was waving with the wind. I feel this should be fixed immediately for our safety."
Pros: "the cabin crew was great"
Pros: "Comfortable seat, great food and service. Very quiet and smooth ride on the upper deck of an A380."
Cons: "Worst issue was the noisy baby at the front of the cabin - no airline seems to have a good solution to this problem!"
Pros: "Crew are really the highlight. Food and seats are good in business class."
Cons: "Boarding was a bit chaotic. Passengers were bunched up outside the departure lounge - not sure if there were lines or not. Got sorted when we got into the lounge."
Cons: "Plane was cold and dirty."
Pros: "Service was excellent, and the 777 flight was very comfortable. The flight attendants were remarkable. The ticket agents had difficulty rebooking the London to Milan leg of my flight when that flight was cancelled while I was on the way to the airport, but they were somehow able to get me onto an earlier flight than was originally offered. What I gathered was that the computer was not very cooperative. The ticket agents were incredibly helpful during this process."
Cons: "I lost my original exit row seat somehow and had to inquire into it. I think what happened was that while the ticket agents were able to rebook my cancelled London to Milan flight, my seat reservation on the Seattle to London leg got lost somehow. I suppose another passenger may have grabbed my seat during that rebooking process. I noticed the changed seat assignment only after I left the ticketing counter. I was able to get a different exit row seat (but with less leg room) assigned to me by inquiring with the agent at the gate."
Pros: "Good staff and food"
Cons: "Seats could have been better"
Pros: "The crew are friendly and do help where possible."
Cons: "Choice of food is poor, not having a full service and having to pay for checked baggage from what was once “the world’s favourite”"
Pros: "I thought the staff were helpful and professional. I had enough legroom and there was room for my wedding dress to be hung, although it was slightly small."
Cons: "There was a lot of turbulence but I know this is not the fault of the airline. Additionally, the in-flight entertainment was not working properly and this had to be reset on request. There were no wet towels/wipes to wipe our hands."
Cons: "Service was incredibly slow Seats were tight No USB port or charger Tiny entertainment screens Forced to check laptop despite this not being a standard with any other airline for the same route"
Cons: "Service is awful, last time I or my family using ba"
Pros: "The quality of food let it down but crew cheerful and helpful throughout the flight!"
Cons: "Not good enough to let back of plane consistently have no choice of food because it has run out. Maybe alternate end of plane you start service to avoid this happening."
Cons: "90 minutes delay for a 1 hour flight. They blamed the weather but no other flights were delayed except this one. Also, I purchased a seat with no checked baggage allowance and was NOT aware of this when I booked. Will not be flying British Airways again."
Pros: "Pre flight information, checking in online & self baggage drop."
Cons: "Flight delayed, sat on runway for 30 mins with no explanation. Not very comfortable, cramped. Can't pay for refreshments with cash."
Cons: "We booked online with a major travel booking site and got Much chaper seats than aa offered. However, they wouldnt assign us a seat until at the airport; what a hassle."
Pros: "Seats are less hard than in other airlines (Delta comes to mind). Food was reasonably good. Crew was very attentive."
Pros: "Games at the tv."
Cons: "Food do not tase good. Very litle space in the economic flys. You make bigger plains with less spaces I was feeling like a bag of potatoes"
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "Too cramped and the food was mediocre."
Pros: "The crew on the plane were nice."
Cons: "British Airways misplaced our luggage for three days, and would give us no further information than "it will arrive soon." So, we were stuck near the local address we had provided in case they called for 2 full days. They refused to give us a more precise time as to when they would be delivered. Well, at one point they did say that they would be delivered at noon, but they weren't. Throughout the entire time waiting for the luggage to be delivered, there was no sense of urgency or concern on the part of British Airways. It seems missing luggage is just Business as Usual at British Airways."
Pros: "Because of the cabin crew strike the old biddies pushing the trolleys were smart enough to give the passengers double the quota of wine to keep us quiet so we didn't mind the slow food service. I had an excellent flight sleeping thru half of it."
Cons: "The audio provided by the ear buds provided produced very poor results, probably causes long term hearing loss."
Cons: "The crew didn't even offer me a drink or food for purchase The baggage allowance fees were ridiculous -- I hate to pay despite being executive status and when I called several times prior to flight there were not helpful and referred me to airport who charged me a lot of $$! I willl be writing a note to customer service. In addition they are cutting back I was told and closed the ticket counter in Faeo Portugal -- not flying them again"
Cons: "the fact I had to 464 pounds robbing b"
Cons: "like all the other airlines you get nickelled and dimed to death"
Pros: "Everything that BA is not; excellent crew & food"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The ground crew at checkin were friendly."
Cons: "The old aircraft that looked like it had seen better days. The old entertainment system that was jittery and crashed."
Pros: "Great crew good service, except a little unorganized at the gate. Best service I've gotten compared to other airlines I've experienced."
Cons: "Food was a little cold. Sitting in the middle of the row is the worst most uncomfortable in economy."
Pros: "I was seated on the upper deck of a 747 (63K) and had plenty of room. The cabin was quiet even though the plane was full. Service was excellent. I enjoyed the food. Cabin crew were great."
Cons: "The entertainment system was old and didn't have the selection of programs available on newer aircraft. Flight map was not at all detailed. Time for an upgrade BA! Boarding was a bit of mess. BA has so many different categories of who gets to board first that it got to be very confusing. People couldn't understand if it was their turn or not and people kept being turned away to wait their turn. It would be far easier if people were given a number from 1-5 like Air Canada and they call those numbers which are also printed on your boarding pass. I was flying business class and I think it a terrible cheek that they charge extra (in my case $129-$159 EACH WAY) to select your seat in advance. That's insane considering what I have already spent on the business class ticket. Seems like a money grab to me. I usually fly Air Canada, and this high extra charge will probably make me think twice about flying BA in the future."
Cons: "The low resolution screens and limited programming compared to other airlines and aircraft"
Pros: "Pleasant flight crew"
Pros: "Great food."
Cons: "Not much space for a long flight."
Pros: "The food was good and free."
Cons: "I bought a ticket from British airlines but the first leg of the trip was with Vueling. The online check in at British Airlines sent me to Vueling but I couldn't check in with British. We had to stand in line at Vueling to check our bags and then with British Airlines to get Get the boarding passes for the other two legs of our our trip. The bags didn't make the switch. British Airlines found our bags in 2 days but 5 days later that's a week later the web check of our file says bags ready for Delivery and call help line can not talk to the airport to find out the problem."
Pros: "The seates were nice and plush. The journey wasn't bumpy at all, and the pilot was funny. He made a fun comment saying 'he had someplace to be in New York so he will get us there as quickly as possible.' :P The crew was friendly and sweet."
Cons: "There was no food ! I assumed a flight from the west coast to the east coast would atleast provide with some food ! But nada. It bugged me more because I had to catch a another flight from new York to London. Other than that, guess it was pretty okay."
Pros: "even better!"
Pros: "Flight was operated by American Airlines, seats were average, entertainment good."
Cons: "Wheelchair attendant was late picking me up from the Club World lounge (at least the British Airways agent monitoring the whole thing cared and kept us updated while we sat out front waiting. Despite the fact that I'd checked with BA the previous night that yes, I was registered to have a gluten-free meal (as of two weeks beforfehand), the flight attendants had no record of this and no GF meal had been included for me. Entertainment = faded screens, bad touch screen interface, crashed nd needed to be rebooted at one point, touch screen minimally responsive, a shockingly small number of choices. Did not have wireless or a usb port, but fortunately there was a universal AC outlet and I had my wall charger along so that I could spend most of the flight using my iPad to read. I'm especially displease with the food, boarding process, and entertainment considering my boyfriend's and my seats were Club World seats I'd paid for (rather than receiving them as a reward). On the bright side, the lie-flat seats saved me from days of post-flight pain, so it could have been worse. Not pleased overall, and the next time I travel internationally, I'll probably chooseanother airline if the prices only differ by a few hundred dollars."

Very disappointed with the food on the first leg of the trip ( from Bangkok to Japan). I had the chicken con don bleu and I must say that I had better frozen TV dinner. The crews during the flight were running around but It was hard to flag them down for any simple services. For the amount of money for the business class, I had better services and food from other economy flights that i experienced. I will never fly Japan Air Lines again. I am willing to pay extra to avoid JAL👎👎👎👎👎👎

no mask requirement will be even better.

Nothing

Using the wifi system was nice. Being able to actually connect to the internet, send and receive emails and text would be nice.

Entertainment was very plentiful, staff were courteous. Seating was HORRIBLE. That is the most cramped I’ve ever been on any flight …Jet Blue and Spirit included. Very uncomfortable for a six hour trip.

Pros: "I like that all the chairs have working electric charger. Other airlines probably have this but it is important for me and they have this."
Pros: "Excellent plane from comfort to entertainment."
Cons: "Better bathroom access for premium economy"
Cons: "Seat wasn’t comfortable and the on flight entertainment didn’t work. AA in flight WiFi kept giving error messages"

Cons: "There was a lack of a adjustable seat headrest."
Cons: "Full flight, but exceeded expectations"
Pros: "Entertainment is great."
Cons: "Late and long flight, so bring your own food. Nothing to purchase"
Cons: "No window at the window seat"
Cons: "Didn’t make the flight because of previous flight was delayed"
Pros: "one of the crew members (Ana) was not only rude and bumping the food cart everywhere, she apparently did not learning as kid the basic of thank you and please. In addition her personal manners of cleaning her nose with her hand, was not only disgusting but unhygienic."
Cons: "Food, boarding and some training for some of the crew"
Pros: "I was with Japan airline and they were amazing crew and amazing service with very good food"
Cons: "The seats and entertainment could have been better"
Pros: "Very attentive crew"
Cons: "Boarding gates"
Pros: "Crew was polite and tried their best to be helpful"
Cons: "I could not check in online before the flight and when I got to the airport, there was no way to check in with a Nexus card. Then they took a while to find my information. Then when I went to board the flight, I only had a Nexus card so they were reluctant for me to board."
Pros: "I guess I’m happy they didn’t crash."
Cons: "Wasn’t American Airlines promoting a new plane every week? Did that fall through?"
Pros: "Legroom, flight crew"
Cons: "Management of flight delays, especially the lack of announcements - confusion was rife"
Cons: "Pilot or co pilot never spoke once. Was as if there was no pilot"
Pros: "Flight was on time"
Cons: "Seat width, height, pitch and aisle width were absolute minimum. Very uncomfortable !!!"
Pros: "Awfully rude flight attendants Took multiple buses I guess American doesn’t pay good money to the airports"
Cons: "Broken entertainment control set seat 11 window."
Pros: "Considering the price we paid for our tickets is the the only drawback I keep coming back to when I think about the VALUE of what I paid for.the entire flight. The overall experience was good throughout; from the airport on both ends of the journey to the actual inflight experience. I'm not sure how much of an influence the airline has on the airport part of it all, but the check-in process was good. The self check-in machines for AA were a little "buggy" and difficult to navigate but helpful staff was readily available as were the short lines. I am 6'2" and was impressed that I had adequate leg room in my seat."
Cons: "We paid a lot for our tickets even though they were purchased months in advance. Then when it came to seat selection, there was none. Our party of three, which was husband and wife plus friend, were all seated separately. We could have opted for "pay extra" seating, but even that did not get us together, so we opted out."
Pros: "Crew was great!"
Cons: "Flight delayed 3x, it was a very long day of traveling."
Pros: "eh, mediocre but usual service from a US airline. Just enough to get you from point A to B, but you’re exhausted once there."
Cons: "too little leg room, and quite uncomfortable seats, couldn’t relax and was cramping from being unable to move more than an inch."
Pros: "Everything else was fine"
Cons: "Cold air blowing in my face that whole trip, crew didn't help"
Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half. My audio jack was broken and regardless, it will still trying to charge me for everything even though i was force to be squashed between two people who are also frustrated about sitting doing nothing."
Pros: "Very courteous crew.pilot was amazing!! Landed in tough wind"
Cons: "Turbulence"
Cons: "Plane had not been cleaned"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Cons: "I booked a LATAM flight for a 10.5 hour flight specifically because they have better in flight entertainment. I arrived at the airport and found it it was operated by AA. 10.5 hours with zero in flight entertainment. HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE."
Pros: "The dinner was decent"
Cons: "There was NO in-seat entertainment or place to charge mobile devices. Very uncomfortable seats. This plane was very old. 9.5 hr flight was pretty unpleasant."
Cons: "The check in"
Pros: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Cons: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."
Cons: "The employees treated me poorly"
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "No individual TVs, electric plug nor WiFi"
Pros: "Ease of boarding"
Cons: "That AA does not follow my preferences. I was assigned a middle seat even though my preference is an aisle seat."
Cons: "Extremely old plane"
Cons: "The seats are so uncomfortable"
Pros: "The AC was set at the right temperature, not too cold, not too hot, just perfect! We got to the destination sooner than expected!"
Cons: "Pay to seat next to my husband, our seats were separate before check-in. Not happy about this."
Pros: "the crew went out of their way to make you feel as comfortable as possible very nice"
Pros: "Flight crew were visibly exhausted and nervous. WORST FLYING EXPERIENCE EVER. It's unfortunate that this leg of the trip was American Eagle. We paid a lot for these tickets."
Cons: "Flight crew were visibly exhausted and nervous. WORST FLYING EXPERIENCE EVER. It's unfortunate that this leg of the trip was American Eagle. We paid a lot for these tickets."
Cons: "Flight was canceled, so our young family had to spend the night in the airport because they couldn't give us a decent option to get back home. Second time we have had problems with AA"
Pros: "Fantastic"
Cons: "None"
Cons: "crew did not pick up the food tray for a long time crew borderline corteous"
Pros: "Leaving the plane was my favorite part. Entertainment was one of the best (American run flight and plane)."
Cons: "Seats were very cramped and did not recline enough to get comfortable. Temperature of the cabin was hot then cold. No sleep again. But the cabin crew looked refreshed in the morning. Guess they had better seats. It should be a law that all airline employees from the CEO on down should only be able to fly in coach. Maybe then the seats will get better."
Pros: "Companion in flight nice Korean girl... We chatted trough all flight time"
Cons: "Arrived and luggage did not arrive and had to open a claim and had to go back to pick my luggage next day, not pleasant considering I live in Juarez Mexico and had to cross the border all tired and fed up with this incident"
Pros: "Great free Wi-Fi with a variety of movies to watch. Helpful, friendly crew."
Pros: "Staff and seats were excellent"
