Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Pros: "Short lines at checking, friendly and courteous staff. Flights on time transfer gates 15 yards apart. Seattle a great airport. Flight crews on both planes very friendly."
Cons: "Beer to expensive....."
Pros: "Flight arrived early Not full flight, more comfortable that way Boarding moved quickly, adequate overhead space Plane exit moved quickly"
Cons: "Flight attendant was rude as I switched into an empty seat following her count. Called out my move on front of other passengers with negative tone, but did not make me move, so OK overall. Without sale of open seat, the only way for Alaska to capitalize on that seat is to allow someone else to have a more positive flight experience with more personal space, so honestly she shouldn't have been rude. Tomato juice was hot from being outside, normally cool even without ice. Snack was fine, but minimal and snack boxes not available on short flight, so less stars for that. Entertainment nonexistent - film/tv access not available in flight without something in mobile device that was not explained, no plugs for charging."
Cons: "zero food choices and minimal drink service for an over 3 hour flight. attendants pften appear unprofessionally attired,as in they are in t-shirts."
Pros: "The crew was great and kept down the noise level. This is the first time I have been able to sleep on an over-night flight. We also arrived early and our luggage was ready within the 20 mins. they say."
Pros: "Our pilot and crew were awesome! It was the second time my granddaughter had flown and she couldn't have had a better experience. She commented how nice everyone was on the flight. The pilot was informative and had a great sense of humor. I'm 67 and this particular flight was the best I've ever been on. Thank you, Alaska Airlines! You are my go-to airlines!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing."
Cons: "When we got to the gate 3 hours early, we ordered a wheel chair for my wine to board the plane as soon as the first gate personnel arrived. At boarding time the clueless person who brought the wheel chair for us gave it to a 20 something man with a foot in a cast and crutches while my 71 year old wife had to wait until another wheelchair could be brought. The irony is that two wheelchairs were there until just. Edited boarding time and both were taken away."
Cons: "Couldn't find any way to input my TSA Pre-Check number so ended up standing in the long line... For that reason alone, I won't buy through Kayak again"
Cons: "3 hour delay. No internet on flight working. Little to no food available."
Pros: "If you have a phone, tablet or laptop, you can watch a bunch of movies for free! No charge whatsoever. I had my laptop and was able to watch two movies and a few TV shows. I also sat in an exit row and had a LOT of leg room. I was really happy."

Cons: "I pre confirmed my flight online & checked in, along with a friend. I didn't realize I had to reconfirm when I got to the airport again, since my friend already knew the gate number. I had my mobile boarding pass on my iPhone, and got to my departure gate. When it got close to boarding time, my email boarding pass disappeared! Luckily I was able to get a paper boarding pass from the boarding desk. If I had not looked previously on my phone-I would have been delayed. Learning lesson on my part. Check in at airport too!"
Pros: "It was a little confusing beacause your brochure said I would have free Wifi so I didn't rent your tablets. A half hour later I realized the wifi doesn't actually work, so I missed out on renting your tablets to watch something. I think there should be a less confusing system. This is more of an Alaska Airlines gripe though."

Cons: "Delayed take off and arrival"
Pros: "having a seat I got to pick."

Cons: "No movies/entertainment unless you want to pay for a tablet. No Wifi for Android users."

Pros: "Good snacks"
Cons: "More than 4.5 hrs in taxi waiting to take off. Due to “few rain” and after 3.5 hrs we needed to refuel when we were about FINALLY close to our turn for take off. Horrible service by DELTA. Never flying again with them"

Pros: "That we finally arrived."
Cons: "That we didn't arrive even remotely close to when we were supposed to."
Pros: "Are usually fly international, and I really enjoy it. Flying domestic inside the US is bad because you never know when you will get flight delays, like we got. It wasn’t the fault of Delta, but it sucked."
Cons: "Small seeds, no food, the flight delay"
Pros: "Crew were helpful and pleasant"
Cons: "Seating was uncomfortable, cabin was cold and no blankets available, food was just ok, plane had lots of empty seats yet everyone was squeezed into 3 in a row making it uncomfortable, no updates from captain or crew as to where we were in the flight....."

Pros: "On time boarding in Seattle."

Cons: "No space in the seats"
Pros: "More entertainment options were added. Thank you"

Pros: "Flight attrndants on delta are mostly ok-- but there are several with bad attitudes who cannot communicate They will just point at things and mumble incoherently with incomplete sentences They will not turn there hips when walking down the aisle to avoid hitting people & they"
Cons: "Flight attendants are miserable"
Pros: "What is the issue?"
Cons: "They delayed the takeoff because of catering, really over a half hour because you wanted to sell more sandwiches. So you make us late and the poor people who had connecting flight, it just does not make sense."
Pros: "That my flight was on time"
Cons: "Pretty much everything else about it"
Pros: "Nothing I can think of right away"
Cons: "Late arrival and late departure. Poor service in having my luggage be connected to my flight. Was under the impression that they would do that after I had called the day prior and once I got to airport they didn't do so"
Cons: "The flight was over 20 minutes early"
Pros: "Staff were all polite"
Cons: "The least amount of legroom I've ever had. The most cramped I've ever been and I'm 5'2 and fly a lot. Also for a 5 hour flight, I should not have been as uncomfortable as I was. There's less cushion than before."
Pros: "Boarding was easy"
Cons: "Arrived 15 mins late and then taxied for another 5-10 mins."
Cons: "Undersized overhead bins so ALL carry-on rollerbags had to be checked."
Cons: "3 hours there before the departure."
Pros: "Service. Sweet attendant."
Pros: "Everything was excellent."
Cons: "Cant get used to cookies and drink service on long haul flight. Do not care for salable food choices so packed a sandwich."
Cons: "Extreme delays"
Pros: "That a delta plane actually had seat back video screens- First delta flight ever that I've been on that did. But every ones screen froze up just over an hour into the flight."
Cons: "Even though the Atlanta to Toronto arrived 'early' I had barely 20 minutes to get to the other plane- I would not have made it with out the amazing staff of weather and the Toronto airport. I use a wheelchair and even zipping through as fast as I could I was 15 minutes late arriving at the gate. I booked this flight thinking I had at least and hour and a bit between flights. Thankfully others on my flight were also late so the Ottawa bound plane did not leave on time"
Cons: "no legroom in a first class and expensive seat"
Pros: "When you are delayed, there is not much to commend."
Cons: "Delayed. That pretty well says it all."
Pros: "The crew was good and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "Somehow we were double booked and double billed. We got to the airport 3 hours early and checked our bags. All 3 were lost and searched. Everything was put back precariously and there was shampoo and lotion everywhere."
Pros: "Very easy flight & process"
Pros: "Liked the entertainment option. I was able to watch most of a movie on the first flight, then pick up the end on the second. B737-900 ER is a nice plane"
Cons: "Boarding sequence seems inefficient"
Cons: "The plane temperature was too hot from boarding to landing"
Pros: "The crew, and boarding quickly"
Cons: "The flight was packed. It was hot as we boarded. The seat was tight and uncomfortable"
Pros: "Nice staff"
Cons: "No leg room, tight squeeze, charge for checked bags, no room for carryon luggage, bin compartments are too small"
Pros: "Good flight, on time, uneventful. The best kind"
Cons: "No free beer :)"
Pros: "We were given snacks and sandwiches for the delay."
Cons: "Paid for an upgrade but the seat was not what I had asked for. The agent said I would get a refund but I was not clear on how that works. Our plane experienced a mechanical issue. We were told after we boarded. Had to wait 1 1/2 hours in a stuffy hot plane. The bathrooms were very dirty and stinky. The bathroom door did not close properly. We finally deplaned and waited for a new plane. Got to Kona at 2:00am. The air temp was warm the entire flight. Had to endure a grumpy crew. Not the best flying experience. I know you can do better. Maybe look at how Hawaiian airlines does it and you might get some inspiration on how to improve."
Cons: "Cap. Was great"
Pros: "Every thing"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "My other WestJet flights let me have access to wifi via the WestJet app and the entertainment console. I was disappointed to not have access on this flight."
Pros: "Cramped seats for someone 6 foot 5."
Cons: "Nothing, I just hate flying"
Pros: "On time departure. Organized check in"
Cons: "Seats are tight"
Pros: "Entire experience went smoothly. Right from when I booked by tickets to checking in at the airport. I was kept informed of changes to the flight itinerary and didn't have any trouble throughout the process."
Cons: "Nothing really could be improved other than typical airline problems that can't necessarily be solved. We did fly out of LAX on our way home and that was more of an unpleasant experience as there is not near enough seating for people waiting to board their flights."
Pros: "The bathroom was extremely cramped! No TV available on long flight."
Cons: "I signed up for a wheelchair when I purchased my ticket. There was a delay getting me a wheelchair in San Jose to get to my gate. After landing in Toronto there was not a wheelchair waiting at the plane exit. There was a wheelchair inside the airport - but no one available to push it!"
Pros: "Very friendly crew"
Cons: "The delay"
Cons: "When tavelling with a child, which is always identified at the time of booking by providing child's age, every other airline was able to accommodate seating together. Even at the lowest fare class. Not Westjet, their automatic computer seating assignment gave us seats in separate rows !! When asked at the checkin and also again at the gate, we were told that the fare class that we paid for does not allow seat changes. They simply would not seat a parent and a child together unless we paid extra $25/person to change seats. This kind of gauging for money was shocking. Especially when there were 3 other rows behind us with free seats together !! This was clearly a case of wanting more money. At the lowest fare class parents travelling with children can expect the child to be sitting separately from them. Or pay up more."
Pros: "No delays flight arrived ahead of schedule"
Pros: "I received great service and the flights were on time."
Cons: "Morning flight but flight was late leaving even though the plane was at the terminal. Sat on the tarmac for a half hour waiting in line to takeoff."
Cons: "The flight was continuously delayed. The crew was not helpful in helping people with connections."
Pros: "What a great experience flying west jet!! The crew was so accommodating. I got sick on the plane and there were so many people jumping to help me make sure I was confortable. I’ve flown all airlines and will be flying West Jet again."
Pros: "Good legroom compared to other carriers"
Cons: "Almost 1 hour late leaving. No westjet connect, so no entertainment."
Pros: "The stewardesses were friendly and accommodating very pleasant experience!"
Pros: "It was easy getting through the line and onto the plane. The seat was on the window, which I wouldn't normally sit in, and was comfortable enough for me to get an hour of sleep on an overnight flight; I'm content with that."
Cons: "The fee for changing my assigned seat, thus the window seat, and one of the flight attendants was very impolite; though overall the flight attendants were pleasant enough."
Pros: "The flight left on time, boarding was orderly, I got a window seat."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable (very little leg and arm room, chairs didn't recline at all), WiFi was unavailable."
Pros: "Talia is an excellent stewardess—She takes good care of people"
Pros: "great on board crew, very friendly and getting the impression the company execs under value them. PAY YOUR STAFF BETTER WESTJET."
Cons: "older equipment often means what you’re accustomed to is missing. specifically, not being able to plug in and charge proved problematic on this flight. in-flight entertainment was the old back-of-seat and did not work until the final minutes of the flight."
Pros: "I liked the congenial attitude of the staff & flight attendants. The drinks were free for once."
Pros: "Upgraded to Plus - it was great."
Cons: "Too bad we have to pay extra for Plus to get a reasonable amount of room."
Pros: "Flight was good."
Cons: "Was boarding at C70 but only saw signs for 71 and C73. Asked Westjet staff where we were boarding and they told me (and others) that even though we were booked to take off from C70 we’d be departing from the gate labeled C73 and also labeled for a flight to Regina. Still got to Hamilton though."
Pros: "The crew was very friendly and funny"
Cons: "Everything was up to my standard"
Cons: "It did not happen. Being transfered to air canada in Toronto was a night mare"
Pros: "The stewardess serving drinks was very pleasant. Thank You"
Pros: "I liked the timeliness of boarding."
Cons: "Crew was not the nicest, especially when asking for non purchase items like water."
Pros: "helped me find my bag when another airline lost it."
Pros: "Honestly, I slept on my flight so I miss all the perks. I’d assume everything was fine since they let me sleep. They also let me board early since my foot was in a cast."
Cons: "Flight was delayed, but not by much."
Pros: "Everyone was understanding that the delay was outside of the crew’s control."
Cons: "The long delay. Scheduled to arrive at 9:30 pm but got in at 1:30 am"
Pros: "The reservation was quick and effective"
Cons: "Flight was late to leave"
Pros: "The staff are always super friendly on Westjet."
Cons: "The entertainment system is terrible. It does not work on my laptop and they sell out of ipads quickly."
Pros: "The plane was less busy so many people had an empty seat next to them. It was great for leg room and I slept the whole flight!"
Pros: "The flight and crew were great, great flight. Arrived earlier then stated. I still enjoy flying in and out of Hamilton. Great airport. If I can book West jet again, I will, great airline. Took some great pictures from the aircraft. Thank you !!!!"
Cons: "Security, too much, even when we arrived, customs twice."
Pros: "Free booze"
Pros: "Main stewardess was very pleasant. Not full flight so I moved back and had a seat to myself."
Cons: "Flight was late and kept getting later as the day wore on. Nobody seemed to know how late we were ultimately going to be and why. Missed my meeting."
Pros: "Comfortable seat with lots of leg room"
Pros: "Nice crew"
Pros: "Crew was cheery, in-flight entertainment innovation evident, plenty of opportunity for water/snacks"
Cons: "We were heckled by gate crew about whether my dog’s carrier was too small for him. Many suggestions were made that we were subjecting him to animal cruelty, and that we were abusive to him. He’s 7lbs, so he can’t be much smaller a dog, and his carrier it turns out, doesn’t fit under WestJet seats, despite being within carry-on luggage dimension limits (their life jackets take up most of the legroom), and thus could not be any bigger. Did they want me to have a smaller dog, or a Euclidean space-defying carrier? I suppose they were suggesting that taking a dog aboard WestJet is abusive, because they certainly don’t provide adequate space for anything larger than a hamster, they hassle you about it, and they charge you $50 for the fun of it. One agent had the nerve to reach into his carrier without permission, unannounced, and invade his personal space, him being a rescue and very anxious."
Pros: "I flew through the air in a metal container across the country in the time it would have taken me to drive 400 km, so that's pretty neat."
Cons: "Provide complimentary movies West Jet. Parading around tablets to rent for $6 is a bad look."
Pros: "The crew and staff were great on the plane. Could use more staff at the checked bags area but overall good experience"
Cons: "More agents at the check in desk"
Pros: "friendly staff quick flight quick boarding"
Cons: "no vegan options on the plain no tv screens"
Cons: "I was able to download the WestJet Connect app on my phone which gives you access to tv shows and movies to watch on your own device during the flight. The app was free and easy to use and there was a decent selection. However, the wifi on board is not free so even though you could watch the tv show/movie - the sound did not work unless you paid for it. There are many other airlines that offers everything for free - it would have been a more pleasant if we were able to actually utilize the service."
Pros: "Great crew, West jet connect worked fabulously"
Cons: "Cramped space and airplane food"
Pros: "We got some extra help in the airport :). Thanx"
Cons: "6 hours delay"
Cons: "Opodo messed up my booking. I reached the airport only to find out that the booking was cancelled by Opodo though I received an email from Opodo 24 hours before advising me to check in on the flight. As I was busy with some construction work at home I thought I would check in at the airport. Opodo advisors were not helpful on the phone and I ended up missing a family get together due to their incompatibility."
Pros: "Indeed the crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Nothing. It was all good!"
Pros: "Nothing out of the ordinary but I am not going to fly Air Lingus or TAP ever again."
Cons: "the Team Leader at the check in counter was nasty, Her colleague made the mistake of not telling me that I had to wait there for the wheelchair that was going to take me to the plane, so I went to have a light breakfast. Then I waited half an hour on my feet waiting for the wheelchair"
Cons: "Transferring to another airline that was “serviced by”. British Airways ended up being 2 hours of stress, confusion and running to our gate. This should be made apparent while booking. Had to go through security 3 times in Toronto."
Cons: "Crew could have been more interested. Seat could have reclined and gone upright properly."
Pros: "The crew was good"
Cons: "I didn’t like how I prepaid for my window seat & ended up with a different seat in the middle"
Pros: "the seats were comfortable, boarding systematic and the crew were polite and helpful"
Cons: "Food was meh...would have rather had a sandwich than the congealed mess that was supposed to be cheese sauce. Needed way more water offered for such a long flight."
Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Upon check in Dublin there was only one attendant at the check in counter in business class. Had seat assigned when I booked the flight and check in counter gave different seats so was not sitting beside my husband."
Pros: "The staff are always lovley"
Cons: "They lost my bags and 5 days later I still don’t have them.. traveling alone with a baby for Christmas.. all my gifts were in that bag so Christmas is a bit of a loss.. I find it way to difficult to get refunded or reimbursed for my loss"
Pros: "No issues at all."
Cons: "No issues to report."
Pros: "I liked the variety of movies/television series shows that were available and having USB charger at every seat. Also liked that they gave headphones free of charge as well as pillows and blankets."
Cons: "The seats were fairly narrow and I had the unfortunate luck of having a mechanical box at foot space taking away half of it. (on the previous flight there was no box and foot space was fine). On this journey I was sitting on the aisle being constantly bumped by the crew moving up and down the aisles. I’m not a big person and wasn’t in the aisle however, on the aisle opposite me was a bigger person. The crew were constantly moving to avoid that person and hitting me. Expect tight seating and narrow aisles."
Pros: "Like that we can check a bag and get free meal in economy on transatlantic flights. Good staff and nice plane."
Cons: "Add water coffee tea gratis on short haul inter-Europe flights."
Pros: "First experience flying business class -- and Aer Lingus has it down to a science! Great food (maybe too much actually!), friendly attendants, great service -- and the most wonderful pods that allow you to lay out flat for a snooze, complete with duvets and pillows."
Pros: "Super friendly staff"
Cons: "Flight left late and landed over 45 minutes late. No support for those that were left late for connections and no allowing those to de-board first. No Aer Lingus staff in the airport when the luggage screw up from Madrid was discovered."
Pros: "Excellent accommodations and assistance given by the ticketing agent"
Pros: "They had vegetarian options for food."
Cons: "I couldn't check in until I got to the airport so I was stuck in a middle seat. Boarding went smoothly but we sat on the run way for an extended period of time. The screens weren't working for the first 45 mintues and when they were finally reset the movies kept skipping which made it unwatchable, the 7 hour flight from hell."
Pros: "Didn’t feel cramped like on the Air Transat flight to Dublin. The food was quite good and they had a great selection of movies."
Pros: "Flight was great and very friendly staff. Not sure why I couldn’t check in online."
Pros: "The best coffee ever"
Pros: "Having had bad experiences with Aer Lingus before, I was hesitant to book with Aer Lingus again. But sadly, I was booking this flight last minute and had no other option. The route was Dublin to Calgary, via Toronto. I left myself plenty of time im Toronto to clear customs as I know it can take a while. The day of, the flight ended up being 1.5 hours longer than usual due to headwinds, leaving me with only 2.5 hours in Toronto. I ended up waiting 2 hours and 15 minutes for my bag and missing my connecting flight (my sister who was also on the same flight received hers in 30 mins and made the flight). Westjet was wonderful and put me on a later flight but Aer Lingus didn't have any assistance for me."
Cons: "Aer Lingus lost my sister's luggage going to Ireland and never contacted my sister once the luggage was found. She only received it the day we flew back to Calgary. Poor customer service when inquiring about the bag, no compensation for necessities purchased."
Pros: "They really did a great job, kept us informed about what was going on,staff was quick, organized and pleasant. I have to say, best food on a flight that I have had in a very LONG time,!"
Pros: "Everything was fine on this flight. From the price food and service. The layover was to long but it was a last minute booking"
Pros: "Best meals I've ever had. Front facing sleepers are easier to sleep in than the diagonal configuration."
Cons: "Connections within Europe have no business class. It is actually a worse experience than Air France and Lufthansa."
Pros: "I didn't like anything."
Cons: "The service was really poor. An international flight wee u have to pay for the alcohol, and no cheap either!! The food was mediocre! The plane was outdated. No USB or headphone. Only those offered by the airline and the sky da was awful!! The seats were small and not comfortable! The tv screen wasn't responding to the fingers, had to use the remote!! Everything was not nice at all. The stewardess and steward were not pleasant, it looked like they didn't want to be there or they were bother!! I will never fly again either British or Aer Lingos."
Pros: "Check in, boarding and flight all great"
Pros: "Every seat had it's own t.v.; however, the movie selection was limited compared to the British Airways flight we took to Dublin. We were served a meal that did not require an additional fee which was great, but the taste was so-so. The crew was competent and pleasant."
Cons: "The entertainment (movie) selection was not that great."
Pros: "The crew"
Cons: "Food not good , entertainment system old un updated and slow"
Cons: "Boarding was very slow and not well organized therefore all passengers were trying to find their seat at the same time. No pillows or blankets available. The entertainment system has not kept up to date. Poor reception and old movies. My new case was damaged that can't be repaired on route from Heathrow-Dublin-Toronto Aer-Lingus is no different from any other airline that fly across the Atlantic - too bad"
Pros: "Everything wa on time"
Pros: "Crew was very pleasant and efficient. They did give us a voucher for a snack while we waited"
Cons: "Had a delay of nearly 3 h for maintenance issues, then once plane at the gate boarding was further delayed due to a fuel spill on tarmac when fueling the aircraft"
Pros: "The flight crew were super friendly and boarding was pretty efficient for a tarmac boarding. Sodas and chips reasonably priced."
Cons: "Cramped airplane, had absolutely no legroom. Felt like on RyanAir, but paid more. And the chips sold are Cheese & Onion.... Really, Onion on an airplane? 6 hours later and I can still smell onion after a breath mint and mint gum! And I only ate a couple.... May I suggest selling a more neutral smelling flavor?"
Pros: "The flight was delayed by a little over an hour, but the pilot managed to make up some time. Airplane was clean enough and crew was friendly."
Cons: "No free coffee"
Pros: "Very clean. Seats are comfortable and food is good."
Pros: "Food is poor!!! The vegetarian meals have no flavor"
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that I was skipped the first time they came around with drinks. It happened on our way to Europe and the way back. I did not appreciate that."
Cons: "No USB ports"
Pros: "The individual seat provided me with privacy and a window seat, as well as the comfort of being able to lay down flat. And the chair had a massage option!"
Cons: "The buttons to change seat alignment are too sensitive. Several times during the flight I just grazed my arms on the panel and my seat alignment moved."
Pros: "Friendly flight attendants!"
Cons: "Inflight entertainment needs upgrades: better options and better performing screens."
Pros: "I liked the in-flight crew. They were very pleasant and helpful!"
Cons: "The delays! The check-in app was down and the ladies at the desk didn't seem to be in any hurry to make sure we didn't miss our flight. It was the worst experience."
Pros: "Entertainment was great. We could watch films as soon as we got on and play the quiz game while we waited 30 minutes on the ground to find a gate."
Cons: "Crew did not smile. They did their job, but did not seem to enjoy it."
Pros: "See above"
Pros: "What did I like? Not much."
Cons: "What didn't I like? The food, it was poor. The entertainment system needs repair. Small seats. Seats to close together, front to back, especially on an eleven hour flight. The crew trying to sell the captive audience extra food and drinks."
Pros: "Andrew and Yvonne saved the day."
Cons: "Wifi, entertainment system went down. Some crew members a little slower than others."
Cons: "It took so long to get bags on the carousel it eliminated any extra time the pilot gave us in getting to the airport quickly."
Cons: "We arrived in Toronto from Dublin to get our connecting flight with two very tired children and were told by Air Canada that our connecting flight was never booked by Aer Lingus. We were told that the flight we were supposed to be on was full and there was no flights until the next morning. To top it off Air Canada could not locate our baggage and we were told to wait around and check back every half hour. If was past two in the morning Dublin time and our kids were exhausted and fell esleep in the airport. We could not wait around any longer with exhausted children so we booked a hotel and took our kids there without our luggage. Our kids were crying because our baggage was lost and thus was a shitty way to end our vacation and my birthday! Would not recommend flying with Aer Lingus or Air Canada. Horrible service."
Pros: "The flights were on time."
Cons: "Since I booked with vayama, through kayak, aerlingus wouldn't give me more than basic flight info. I didn't even know if my seats were confirmed, which they weren't on the connecting flight with JetBlue airlines. The website said to contact vayama, vayam said contact the airline. Our bags were not checked through to our destination so we had to collect them in New York. They are supposedly partner airlines but told us we had no choice and had to wait till aerlingus opened customer service. We were stuck for 7 hours outside of security with our bags and 1 Duncan donuts kiosk. The 12 hr overall layover was bad enough without that. I understand that booking through discount sites comes with its own cost, but you should know if you have assigned seats and that your baggage will make it."
Pros: "Absolutely nothing wrong happened on the flight, and that's good"
Cons: "Was supposed to depart at 850 pm on 15 Nov from Orlando Boarded plane on time then sat on aircraft for 2 hrs due to machanical issues. Was the deboarded and spent 2 hrs wanted for a hotel voucher. Asked to be placed on a different flight due to active duty military status and was given no help. Was not offered to fly on a different airline.. was instead asked if i had looked into getting another flight which if i am correct should be something they should have doing to ensure that i would return to duty on time.. Mind you i was flying with a small child and bussiness class was more important than women with small children or families period. When i was able to catch the flight the following day i didnt not recieve notification that this flight was delayed as well. To top it off this was a red eye flight and they kept the lights on in the cabin and many people were unable to sleep. Due to the flight being delayed i and my small child had to run across dublin international to catch or connecting flight. We made it however our luggage did not. I will not be using this airline again. I would rather spend a little extra money."
Cons: "Aircraft was out of the 1970's. No USB or entertainment. Wi-fi was bust on the plane. Will avoid American next time when booking."
Pros: "By luck, I had a seat between myself and the other person in my row. It would have been tight, otherwise. Crew was friendly and polite."
Cons: "The seats on the flight were placed very close together - felt very constricting. Takeoff and landing were a bit rough."
Pros: "Really disappointed as my bags was not check thru.It was rechecked at London and British airway charged me for my baggage. I want to make sure that my way back to Oslo London London San Diego has no charge . It is an international flight and I am allowed 23kg one checked bag ."

Cons: "Seat wasn't comfortable."
Pros: "British Airways got us on another flight to Dublin through Heathrow."

Pros: "AA put us in a hotel and gave $12 (per person) food voucher for missed connection due to delay for maintenance."
Cons: "Our luggage was lost for 2.5 hrs in PHX airport, due to mix-up by service rep at customer service. AA attendant at gate at CLT was extremely rude and unprofessional when I accuse Left my boarding passes in seat pocket. Would not summon someone to retrieve it. Made me wait until entire plane was disembarked and cleaned, and made me wait some more after. She was super snarky, made rude comments, and almost made my family miss our connection to EWN. I will never, ever, fly AA again. Worst customer service and tons of issues with maintenance, luggage handling, and delays."

Pros: "I initially booked my flight via Kayak for a cheap no hassle price"
Cons: "My initial booking was with Iberia Airlines and a few days prior to my Flight was switched over to American Airlines. Had i known I would be flying with AA, I would have opted for a more expensive option as I've a great disdain for AA. My flight from JFK was not the model aircraft I was promised and thus did not have ac chargers or Wifi in the plane. In my opinion, I was bait and switched via Kayak"

It cost me in fees to basically cancel my flight which ended up being just as much as my entire flight ticket. Got refunded a total of $12 to use towards my next flight. Never flying or booking a flight with American Airlines at all. Kayak couldn't even help with accommodations. Southwest is the only company that will actually hold those credits for you. Everywhere else is just trying to scam you."

Pros: "At 6' 2" I was surprised that, with the seat in front of me not reclined (and fortunately no one ever did), my knees actually had a bit of room and were not pressed into the seat back in front of me. That and the flight schedule went smoothly - everything was on time."
Cons: "Maybe a couple of other sandwich options might have gotten me to pay for one."
Cons: "Fat ads sitting next to me should have purchased 2 seats"

I never been compensate for canceling flight or extra seat price.Nobody care even apologize. I hope that was just unforchened incident and I still like your company and still flying with AA, but I was really disappointed. Sincerely Vera Vasiley."

Pros: "Although my flight was delayed and I had to take 2 connecting flights to get home my baggage also made it home with me."
Cons: "Seats were uncomfortable. The flight was so loud, it was like driving down the highway with the windows down. AA automated messaging services called me to update me regarding my itinerary change when my 1st flight was delayed and provided wrong information which lead me to attempt to board an incorrect flight causing confusion and frustration."
Pros: "see top review"
Cons: "see top review"
Cons: "Boarding the plane and then the crew decides more gas is needed after they've been sitting in the cockpit long before we boarded. Couldn't they have realized that before everyone boarded and thus make everyone late"
Cons: "they refused to provide accommodation or any reasonable flight alternate. they showed no urgency or any decency to help me. i will avoid this airline as much as possible in the future"
Cons: "I booked through Alaska and received an Alaska boarding pass that stated the flight was operated by Sky West. To be sure I was at the right terminal I confirmed with the security agent before going through TSA. Once through the disorganized security check I sought out a departure screen but could not find my flight anywhere. I approached a gate agent to assist and he told me my flight was on American, located outside of security and in the terminal I had just come from. He confirmed that despite the verbiage on my boarding pass my flight was neither being handled through Alaska OR SkyWest. I hurried back to the first terminal and asked the security agent but she did not speak much English and could not help me. I then hurried to the American Airlines desk where the woman was also confused. She told me there was a flight to LAX but not operated by American, operated by American Eagle. She confirmed that this was the correct flight and at my prompt gave me a new boarding pass from American. After running back through another very disorganized TSA I finally made it to my gate in time to board. My seat was located next to a woman who took up 1.5 seats and required me to lean into the aisle to avoid touching her at all times. All and all a sub par flying experience."
