Barely let my wife and 2 children in. The check in lady said you have to arrive 4-5 hours before flight depature and almost did not let them fly. Thankfully another attendant helped out.
The 50 or more Hasidics refused to wear masks, despite the crew’s entreaties. The airline did not have an enforcement officer aboard, and there were no consequences awaiting them at JFK. Laws apply equally to all, and the Hasidism have no right to endanger passengers and crew.

Cons: "Choice of movies and TV programs"

Cons: "Just a small thing the lady who was serving and picking up the used cups said I have to finish the juice and after she can take it away. But I couldn’t finish because it was too sweet and I didn’t like the juice. So I had to get up and bring the cup to the back. That wasn’t nice. Also they at but flexible about giving choices. Only one kind of sandwich they had but I think there was one other kid also."

Cons: "snack they gave something sweet at 07:00 AM"
Pros: "The crew was not very unhelpful & hardly accommodating, not helpful at all. I have never met such a cold hearted airline crew, so unthankful & not trying to help customer. They kept rolling their eyes & speaking like I was a dirt. I will NEVER fly this airline & I will make sure everyone knows."
Cons: "Came early to counter & my passport expires August 9th, so they refuse to help me & did not let me go on board even though I had approval from Jordanian country to fly there. Austerian ticket crew & supervisor did not want even to check the pass through to board with permission. The WORSE airline!!!"

It could have been so complicated, and everyone made it SO EASY. She was all smiles when she arrived in Boston. THANK YOU!!!!!!"

Pros: "Plane was very clean and drink service was frequent."
Cons: "The gate was older, not well appointed and far from shops and better dining. We lined up only to be taken on a very long shuttle ride to the plane. I have had this experience before but in this case the planes location was virtually on the other side of the terminal. By the time all were boarded, the plane was late by about 15 minutes to takeoff, and we experienced more delay after that so that on arrival we were an hour delayed. Many missed connections in Vienna as a result. Crew seemed tense and on edge."

Pros: "I liked that the plane eventually came..."
Cons: "That the plane was an hour late..."
Cons: "Space between seats"
Pros: "A bit more leg and knee room."
Cons: "The food was dreadful. We flew Austrian last month and the food was good. We try to stay hydrated on the flights and when I asked for water at the back of the plane, I was kindly given the water and another attendant grabbed the curtain and closed it making it plain I was not to be there. (I've never had that happen on any other flight.)"
Pros: "The service was superb!"
Cons: "The flight was too short."
Cons: "Flyght was terible"

Cons: "Seat backs were rock solid without use of a personal pillow."
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "Limited meal choices (I flew business class). It seems Austrian puts more emphasis on the Trans-Atlantic flights and less on short hauls."
Pros: "Flight crew & overall experience was positive. Meal & entertainment were good."
Cons: "We paid for extra leg room seats & were told we'd have exit row. We ended up in the middle section, which made it very uncomfortable for the overnight flight."

Cons: "Buses to aircrafts. No snack on short flights."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Lateness and virtually no food at lunchtime"
Pros: "After flight to Vienna was cancelled, we were put on a flight to Frankfurt instead."
Cons: "Kayak sent me an email at 5:16am for an 8:15 am flight titled, "Austrian Airlines flight #704 from PRG on time". It was in fact cancelled. Unfortunately we missed the connection for the flight to Newark, which we were expressly told would be held for us... they shut the door 30 seconds before we arrived, with the plane still at the gate. Had to then go to the only counter in the terminal to see if we could get on standby. Finally got on a flight to JFK instead at 5:15pm."
Pros: "Wonderful flight attendant. (I think his name was Stephen?)"
Cons: "Plane took off and landed late.. Few amenities near the gate. Odd procedure to have everyone go through security into waiting area."

Pros: "Good service on time arrival"
Pros: "Hi there, the gate for the flight was changed at the last minute and I missed the connecting flight from Frankfurt to Vienna. I was told by staff that there would be a 300 Euro fee, plus the cost of the next flight. This broke my heart. why I wouldn't I simply be put on standby and get on the next flight? I ended up travelling by to Vienna by train, over the course of the next several days. I am a lone woman with a developmental disability, travelling to Europe for the first time. It was very disappointing to be treated this way. Thanks for reading."
Cons: "I should have been put on the next connecting flight, rather than turned away to fend for myself in a foreign city."
Cons: "Very confusing boarding procedures. In Vienna they would check you at the gate to make sure you are in but keep you standing for a long time. I am not sure what happened but food was barely edible: breakfast eggs were like rubber and Lunch was served with a tiny sandwich. For a 10 hour flight it was not even sufficient"
Cons: "Both flights were delayed. Food selection was poor."
Pros: "Good food, lots of movies, flight attendants friendly"
Cons: "We paid to pre-book our seats and when we got on the plane they had been given away. We heard several different reasons, none of which made is feel better about the two middle seats we were told we had no choice but to take, while people who had NOT prepaid sat in our aisle seat. It was offensive to be forced to pay to select our seats in advance on a major international airline in the first place, and then to not have those honored just made it worse."
Cons: "economy class eats sold as business class !!! very poor and cheap strategy --"
Pros: "Attention during waiting time and inside cabin"
Pros: "The staff from service center helped me to solve problem with my flight, it was short connection, around 35 minutes, and I missed my aircraft, but in the service center gave me ticket to the next flight, The problem was solved."

Pros: "Great flight! Excellent service! Excellent food and beverages! Would definitely do it again and recommend it to anyone."
Pros: "We paid extra for extra leg room. Exit row. Well worth Cabin crew very good and friendly"

Pros: "The good and service"
Cons: "No TV screen"
Pros: "The flight was on time and the crew were very friendly."
No gate to deplane upon arrival. We waited over 30 minutes AFTER landing to get to a gate. This was after the flight was already delayed by an hour. Terrible airport ops!
Seats are extremely uncomfortable.
Original flight got delayed 2 hours the only option for an earlier flight was to sit in back row window seat which didn’t recline and the fuselage curved over making it claustrophobic without a normal window. Worse flight in twenty years. American doesn’t give a rip about customer service. They just want to pack more seats in plane. They also didn’t have a full arrange of beverages and only had pretzels for a 3 hour flight.
Kind and caring flight staff. Comfortable flight
A full flight no problems on flight, surprisingly crowded
Pros: "Great crew, clean plane"
Cons: "Plane was late getting in so boarding was an hour late"
Cons: "Boarding is slow and awkward, with too many passengers with carryons that don't fit. AA did not enforce size restriction on carryon bags, nor help maximize bin space. Mainstream carriers really need to rethink boarding procedures. I've been spoiled by the speed of Southwest and the attentiveness of SWA staff to the process."
Pros: "Mechanical difficulty and ineptitude -twice at repairs. Undisclosed landing complications due to runways issues in Phoenix resulting in missed connections."
Cons: "Reasonable arrangements were made for hotel, shuttle, and meal voucher, but the airport was virtually closed for the night and getting to ground transportation nearly impossible. Thank the airport cleaning service who were the most helpful"

Cons: "Food options were even more deplorable than the last flight. Ate very little. Might go with ANA next time."
Pros: "Fort Lauderdale is one of the most unfriendly, dirty, non restaurants, no seats, airport."

Pros: "Staff great, food good"
Cons: "Seats had no cushioning for bottom. Need to improve"
Cons: "Told me that if I checked my carry on bag at gate, I'd be able to pick bag up from from the gate at the other end. Instead it went to baggage claim with took more than 30 minutes."

Cons: "Flight was 30 minutes late departure, and arrival (no gate at LAX due to late arrival."
Pros: "Boarding and baggage."
Cons: "This was a long non-stop flight from Miami to Denver. Over 4 hours. So I took the plunge and bought first class. I always fly first class on any flight over 2 hours. However, I was disappointed. The food was so-so and insufficient. The drinks were also not enough. The video displays were small and poorly located for the movie. The seats seemed uncomfortable. All and all I have come to expect a better experience from American Airlines in First Class. The ticket was expensive."
Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "Crew was attentive and nice. Pilot kept us updated on our delayed departure."
Cons: "The departure was delayed due to maintainence issues. Every time that occurs, there are long delays to complete the paperwork. No problem with wanting a well maintained plane, but there should be some quicker way to complete the documentation."
Cons: "The crew really seemed like they didn't like their job, and didn't want to be there. I felt kind of bad for them, nobody should be stuck in a job they hate."

Cons: "Nothing really. A very typical flight."
Pros: "Loved the individual seat back entertainment"
Pros: "The crew kept us informed as to why we didn''t leave the gate on time; they served beverages and snacks in an efficient manner.

Cons: "Delays and no communication on transfer options"
Pros: "Good assortment of movies"
Pros: "The service was excellent, and we arrived ahead of schedule."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "Entertainment modules in cabin were nice"
Cons: "Forced to check my bag in at the gate. Upon completion of boarding, there were several empty spaces in the overhead bins, and my bag could have fit easily. Upon arriving in Houston, baggage claim was VERY slow. Small flight of less than 30 people. Southwest had 3 flights arrive and complete baggage claims by the time our bags became available. Airport personnel confirmed that it is typical or normal for American because they operate with a small "skeleton" ground crew. Flight arrived just after 11:20pm,, but wasn't able to head out for transportation until after 12:30am. VERY upset and disappointed with service."

Pros: "The one glass of white wine I was served was delicious. Crew was friendly. Food was surprisingly elaborate for a short flight."

Cons: "flight was more than 4 hours late!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pros: "The crew were excellent during the flight."
Cons: "We missed our connection flight because our first flight was delayed. Despite getting to the desk when there were still people queuing he refused to let us board. We are now delayed for 30 hours with no money or clothes. TAP staff were horrible- no sympathy or even an apology. Just awful."
Cons: "Plane was full thus carry on roller bags had to be checked- big security concern re theft"
Cons: "It was nice to get a snack but the quality was mediocre."
Pros: "Food was good, many options with entertainment"
Cons: "The person making announcements mumbled and spoke too softly for someone who's announcing things on a flight. We couldn't understand half of everything being said. Also both flights departed late even though TAP reported them as "on time." We sat at the gate for almost an hour before departing with announcements at that time solely in a Portuguese - on a flight going to New York."
Cons: "I was dehydrated because I could barely get enough water to drink"
Cons: "The flight was cancelled few hours before departure. I called the customer service and they a flight to Tel Aviv a day after with 3 stops.

Pros: "Not too many people"
Cons: "Was delayed. Too long waiting for luggages"
Cons: "Flight got canceled and delayed, staffs very mean and unprofessional"

Pros: "Frequent offers for drinks"
Cons: "Vegetarian food was terrible, seats were really small"
Pros: "The crew did a great job."

Pros: "the flight was fine."
Cons: "The 70 euro luggage fee was a bit excessive. The delay and subsequent missing of my connecting flight that resulted in a 11 hour layover and a 10 euro voucher was pretty lame. TAP Portugal customer service leaves a bit to be desired"
Cons: "The flight was delayed pre boarding and took longer than it should and thus missed our connection to London"
Pros: "I like the flight per se and the crew attention"
Cons: "The boarding process. It was slow, disorganized, didn't take off on time and some people were rude including the searching process that I enter voluntarily because nobody directed me. I when you schedule a flight you should try to take off on time because it can be disruptive for everyone. And when you sell discount tickets at least say you are going to charge 45 dollars for the bag... i wouldn't purchase any discount offer"
Cons: "I was told at the check in that my bags are NOT paid for...when I booked the tickets on line there was no mention of any additional charges, or option to purchase baggage"
Cons: "5 hrs delay and missed all connecting flights. Airline initially rescheduled flight 2 days later. Called Kayak and got no support. Kayak agent told us to keep pushing the airline. After 2 hrs of "working" with the airline, we were able to fly into Madrid the following day. Had to spend extra money for hotel room and car rental in Madrid because our final destination was Sevilla. Will never work with Azores or Kayak again. BTW, did we mention that while "working" with Azores to reschedule flight, we were booked to fly into an island off of Africa. Luckily, we followed up online with the changed itinerary."

Cons: "Flight Washington delayed. Airport about closes upon Arrival!"
Cons: "Flight Washington late."
Pros: "Crew and food Were ok."

Cons: "No lounge airside at Lisbon airport, no shops open that early in the morning"
Pros: "Staff was friendly and somewhat helpful, they were able to offer some compensation and hotel."

Cons: "After we had to turn around to BOS because of a technical issue with the plane, the customer server was really unhelpful! I ended up figuring out a completely other flight, through another airline and booked myself on that flight. I worked with this Airline almost an hour to get myself on it and then it seems that it took TAP Portugal that hour PLUS SOME to suggest alternate flights to other stranded passengers."
Pros: "On time and the plane may have been the cleanest aircraft I've ever been on."
Cons: "Nothing comes to mind. All in all, a very nice travel experience."
Cons: "Missed that flight because of previous delay"
