Pros: "Comfort as usual"
Cons: "No idea"
Pros: "Loved the Kabuki actors used for safety instructional video - stay for the ending credits!"

Cons: "ANA changed my selected aisle seat to middle one without explanation. It never happens when I fly with United."

Pros: "NH817 NRT to PNH was one of the best crews ever. Every need was met. Best customer service. NH818 was good too but the attention and attitude was slightly below. Travel Dates: NH817 09/1/2017, NH818 09/04/2017."

Pros: "5 stars all around 5 stars around"
Pros: "Food legroom service friendliness"
Cons: "Could not view flight info on map"
Pros: "Not much to complain about. If the snacks can be provided at the galley freely, that would be perfect."
Pros: "The flight was less busy than usual (it was an Easter Sunday departure) and so service was a bit more relaxed and friendly than usual instead of just efficient. Left gate a few minutes early and arrived 20 min early in Tokyo. Flight time is pretty good - 8pm departure which gives time for a relaxed day sightseeing in Dusseldorf before going to the airport in the late afternoon, Arrival in Tokyo is about 2pm which would be a good time to check in to hotels and relax. Food was good - dinner after take-off and a brunch-type meal a few hours before landing. Entertainment system is also very good although I'd flown a lot recently so seen the films I wanted to see already. Sometimes ANA are just "good" but this one was the best one I've flown recently."
Cons: "Surprised that their recently acquired 787s don't all have WLAN! Wanted to do some work ... but ... maybe enforced disconnection is a good thing sometimes :)"
Pros: "Great flight. Plenty of leg room in economy section. Attendants polite, helpful and made you feel like you their valued customer. Would fly ANA again when traveling their routes."

Pros: "Light food but breakfast could have been more substantial only one chicken sausage?"
Cons: "Turbulence Lack of privacy with seating Lighting from other monitors disturbs someone trying to sleep"
Pros: "Was able to request a gluten-free meal for the flight"
Pros: "I flew from ORD to Tokyo and DEL to Tokyo. The flight was clean food was really good. What I like the most about ANA is the leg space in basic economy. The flight from Delhi to Tokyo was brand new 787-9 :)."
Cons: "The only gripe for me would be the movie selection. There are not that many choices."
Pros: "Cabin was clean and really comfortable seats. The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The food provided was tasteless"
Pros: "Great movies!!"
Cons: "Terrible seats- difficult to find s confirtsble position."
Cons: "Not enough English movies/tv shows"
Pros: "Hassle-free luggage check-in process. Amazing hospitality led to a great in-flight experience. Empathy and kindness of staff was exemplary. Every crew member goes above and beyond one's expectations. My wife and my kid had a lovely time and comfortable journey. Will definitely try to book this flight again in future."
Cons: "There was no Indian or vegetarian food. Luckily, my wife carried home-made food."
Pros: "Food was good but not on every segment. Unlike many other airlines, ANA ticket counter team was very good. Japanese cabin crew etiquette & respectfulness are appreciated."
Cons: "Cramped seats. Narita has poor general facilities overall. Therefore ANA should offer a discounted lounge facility for passengers with more than 4 hours transit. (I read that lounge food is surprisingly bad. I used the United lounge instead.)"
Cons: "The flight was 3 hours delayed - and the captain never told us exactly what was wrong. The boarding lane was a chaos as well - and the tv screens never really worked. Terrible!"
Pros: "The crew were welcoming and accommodating, whether you wanted to sleep or to watch entertainment or eat/drink."
Pros: "Amazing staff, clean plane, good food, comfortable seats in business"

Pros: "There are very friendly"
Cons: "Just continue the better services"
Pros: "Every things was great ."
Pros: "Staff are very polite and helpful (ground staff and in the air)."
Cons: "The food was hit and miss. Some of it was good and some of it used ketchup as a sauce. The economy seats have been stripped down to budget airline level padding and the rows seem have been been jammed in a little closer."
Pros: "The crew was very cheerful and helpful even though I was puking my guts out on a long flight with a lot of turbulence"
Cons: "It was an insanely long and pukey flight. The airsick bags have this seal that you have to tear off before you can open it which my son discovered a little too late."
Pros: "The crew was amazing. Made traveling with infant little less harder."
Cons: "The crew from Doha to Kolkata segment could have been little more helpful, especially when they see someone travelling with small kids"
Cons: "Headphones- only one channel."
Cons: "Entertainment on the Boeing 777 suffered from access problems"
Pros: "The Crew was only Alright this time, not has attentive jas the first Time, but still good"
Cons: "Overall IT was a great trip, but the Seat are still the best Selling point for business class, not vert confortable for a 7h et 12h flight"
Pros: "Attentive crew, good menu"
Cons: "Providing in-ear noise-canceling headphones instead of the typical around ear noise-canceling headphones"
Pros: "No delays"
Cons: "Improve your carry on lagguge policy. I was made to throw away some of my expensive clothes by the stuff to fit the weight, when it wasn't a problem when I was checking in ."
Pros: "Flight was 80% empty, but it was amazing anyway, slept through most of it"
Cons: "Staff constantly woke me up for snacks and drinks, which is good on one hand but I was sleeping so deep that it was a bit annoying."
Pros: "Everything was good - food, entertainment, on time."
Pros: "I had never heard of Qatar Airways before I booked a 24hr flight to and from Sydney, Australia. I only did this on the suggestion from a friend that stated Qatar Airways was "alright". So for the price I thought what the heck! I was extremely pleased with the service from the cabin crew. They are always polite, professional, and well trained compared to my previous favorites Delta and Lufthansa. The seats were comfortable (as comfortable as Economy and 24hours of flying can be), the entertainment and aircraft were state of the art, and the food was outstanding for airline food. If I get the chance in the future I will definitely choose Qatar Airways for long trips."
Cons: "Other rude or snotty passengers taking up the crews time and attention for no reason. But as I stated in the "positive" side of this review, the crew handled these impolite individuals with a smile and polite attitude. Kudos to Qatar Airways."
Pros: "Very affordable flights, good value for money. Most of the journey from Sydney to Oslo (via Doha) went qiluite smoothly)."
Cons: "The only thing I didn’t like about the experience was the fact that you can only check in one piece of luggage on economy class, and one very sour individual at the gate when boarding."
Pros: "Everything very smooth. Staff delightful and always helpful!"
Pros: "quick eficient"
Cons: "long flight"
Pros: "The flight attendants were professional and polite, I requested low-fat meals and they were good, the entertainment was very good, the air temperature was comfortable, most flights I had were on time."
Cons: "The legroom was a problem. Seats are kind of narrow, and then, with the lack of legroom it’s somewhat challenging to shift your legs, especially when the seat in front of you goes back! I felt like the person was almost in my lap. My cup even got crunched. I think my biggest issue, though, lay in how I was treated after paying $127.00 to obtain a day pass for the lounge each way. For my inbound flight my purse was branded with an “economy” class luggage type tag, and I was made to feel as though I was trying to sneak in. I had to show my boarding pass a number of times to employees after asking for the location of the lounge in order to be directed there, and then my credentials were examined as though I was trying to get into Fort Knox. Upon arrival at the desk, I was somewhat tersely informed that I had 6 hours. I went out of my way a bit in order to fly Qatar, which is supposed to be so wonderful, and I was underwhelmed. I’ve had better experiences on Lufthansa and Turkish Airlines."
Cons: "They cancelled my trip"
Pros: "12 hrs transit must give Hotel, without Hotel it was bad!"
Cons: "More than 10 hrs transit must give Hotel !!"
Pros: "Boarding was quick and I liked that they didn’t make many announcements which can often keep passengers awake when they’re trying to sleep. Lights were kept off for the duration of the 14 hour flight which was good."
Cons: "I felt that the service was slow and the food was poor. Water was not offered during the flight as is the norm with other airlines. Toilets should be cleaned more regularly. Advertising at the beginning of the inflight entertainment became very repetitive when watching short tv shows."
Pros: "Doha to hyd was good. Crew was courteous."
Cons: "Even after online checkin. Just to drop the bags it took 1 hr. The thin old black lady at the baggage drop off counter was very partial in treating people. She allowed a black male take 27.8 kgs but asked us to adjust our bags when we had 23 kgs. Also if the passenger is allowed to carry a laptop bag, according to her training and theory she only knows 1 shape and does not recognize a back pack which has only the laptop. I travelled several times in Qatar, but never had this kind of experience."
Pros: "I love this app , it's awesome it's save my money and time"
Pros: "My steward, Gabriel, provided service that exceeded my expectations. He made the long haul more bearable."
Cons: "The shape of the seats was not optimal for my height/size."
Cons: "the wifi was average at best. I get that we there are limitations...but if the service is going to be this poor, make it free & unlimited."
Pros: "I was actually impressed with the entertainment selection :)"
Cons: "The economy seats are just unfortunately not a place you can get comfortable enough to sleep. On 14 hour flights one hopes to sleep."
Pros: "All the stewards were so friendly and helpful. The facilities were very well serviced and so you forget that the plane was 100% full, despite long queues to the toilets. I would fly again with Qatar Air for sure."
Pros: "Nice crews"
Cons: "No headsets to hear movies"
Cons: "Front row with a toddler meant that we couldn't lift the armrests up and get her to lay down. She had to lie on the floor, but when we hit some turbulence, we had to wake her and sit her back up with us. The second part of the leg was much better as we were on a normal row seat"
Pros: "If you can book Qatar Airways at a price competitive with any other major carrier then absolutely do - incredible service, plane, food, and overall experience that far exceed the competition."
Cons: "Poor communication about transfers. I also had to throw away 20 pounds of things or get charge $800"
Pros: "Individual entertainment"
Cons: "Boarding was mass chaos, crew wasn't very friendly. Food was passable, eggs were awful."
Pros: "Good service, plenty of entertainment options, modern aircraft."
Pros: "Much better knee space. Excellent flight, good service..."
Pros: "I liked the schedule was on time and smooth plane ride."
Cons: "I did not like the room in the plane. The seats where to close and u I couldn't sit back because person behind u would complain. Flight attendants did not really going around to see if we were good r needed drinks or even smiled they looked very upset and had some attitude when I did ask for something. Customer service needs more improvement."
Pros: "Lo mejor de estos vuelos es sin dudad el servicio del personal de vuelo, son muy amables y se esmeran en mantener cómodo a todo el mundo, te dan botellitas de agua, jugo, hielo, lo que pidas."
Pros: "Quick, easy boarding and nice crew with professionalism."
Cons: "Food wasn't great, but edible. No options for a vegan who didn't choose a vegan meal as the flight was booked last minute. Unhealthy food all around."
Pros: "Qatar Airlines was amazing food was great and the flight attendants catered to passenger needs."
Pros: "Crew Boarding"
Cons: "Food Not so comfy"
Pros: "Comfortable and easy"
Cons: "Departs in early morning"
Pros: "This trip was nice. I will fly Qatar again"
Pros: "Everything is good"
Cons: "No bad things"
Cons: "Very cramped space on a 14 hr flight. Very slow food & drink service. Toilets were dirty No opportunity to choose seats despite checking in online the day before - we were allocated 2 adjacent seats but there were none others shown as available on the entire aircraft."
Pros: "The crew were very friendly and helpful."
Cons: "I am a very tall man and was unable to have an exit row seat. It was not explained why just that they were not available. When I booked the flights I was told to get to the airport as early as possible as exit row seats cannot be booked."
Cons: "The flight from London to Miami was great! The one from Miami to Las Vegas was awful. No seat-back entertainment screens, not power outlets so you could watch on your own device, one bottle of water for a five hour flight, and ride, inattentive cabin crew. I should point out that while I booked through BA, both flights were operated by American Airlines."
Pros: "Pilot announcements were very clear"
Cons: "Too many oversized cabin bags"
Pros: "Flight was excellent crew awesome."
Cons: "My flight was serviced by British Airways. The temperature in the cabinet was very warm and there were no fan controls. The seats are very narrow. Miserable 9hr flight from London to Denver"
Pros: "Great crew—really great"
Cons: "Entertainment screen hard to view. It’s low def. and not bright"
Pros: "Super friendly and never skipped the details."
Pros: "Food fine. Entertainment choices fine. More leg room than American."
Cons: "Departed over an hour late. Preferential treatment given to a family member of flight crew. Also, kind of stingy with water."
Pros: "The crew was mediocre, nothing special. I asked for a extra pillow and was denied. Seats were cramped, I expected more from British Airways but comparing them to China Eastern, I found China Eastern more memorable."
Cons: "I expected more from British Airlines, maybe my expectations and reality didn’t chive?"
Cons: "Extremely poor timing and communication. Departed over 2hr late and missed landing to the correct airport by 10 mins and so had to divert to an airport an hour away with poor coordination"
Cons: "Big difference between aircraft and crew on syd to singapore and the excellent sin to lhr sector"
Pros: "Comfortable seats"
Cons: "Inadequate frequency and quality of service by flight attendants, mediocre food, small portions at dinner service, poor responsiveness of seat controls, incredibly poor resolution and small sized video screen in business class. Nothing but candy and pretzels available for snacks between the long time between meal services. No separate jetway for first and business class passengers. Several hour delayed takeoff after boarding due to multiple maintenance issues and equipment failures."
Pros: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "We were about 45 minutes late taking off so it was stressful for all of us that had a connecting flight."
Pros: "Staff/crew were fantastic, extremely friendly, very down to earth, like family"
Cons: "I thought the food was very ordinary. Selection and type of food could have been more interesting. Bread stuffs did not seem fresh, but thawed from frozen items"
Pros: "Comfy. Adjustable headrests. Complimentary food and drink."
Cons: "Food options were a bit limited but overall everything tasted good. The screens were very old and low quality so it was very hard to see the movies but the selection of media was good."
Pros: "There was NO water in a 4+ hour flight unless you pay!!"
Cons: "Non of the three bottles I asked for on duty free were onboard It is apauling that food & drinks have to be bought in such a long flight including water!!!"
Pros: "This was the right size airplane for the long trip very comfortable."
Pros: "I got free juice and a snack, almost unheard of nowadays!"
Cons: "I don't know what happened. Check-in took almost an hour. Usually it only takes 10 or 15 minutes. I am glad that I got to the airport 2 hours a head of time."
Pros: "The orderly manner in boarding & customer service"
Cons: "Everything was great"
Pros: "Quick boarding, very nice crew. Helpful with infant. Lots of snacks good food."
Pros: "Flight was over all comfortable."
Cons: "No snacks were provided."
Pros: "Great value for the money, nicely priced round trip. Very well scheduled flights, good connections, easy to travel."
Cons: "Little legroom on long flights, no wi fi on board overseas flights, even for purchase. No food available on Europe international flights, but for purchase."
Pros: "Virtually nothing"
Cons: "Overpriced. 90 minutes late departure due to “late inbound aircraft”. Uncomfortable seats - in “Club Europe”. Abysmal food - what would be an economy snack in a decent airline. Really, don’t bother with BA. It’s Ryanair with better livery."
Pros: "I arrived safely and on time.....good movie selection"
Cons: "Breakfast out of London was not appealing - eggs not tasty and potatoes mushy and lacking in taste."
Pros: "I was not given a chance to like anything as the flight was cancelled."
Cons: "That when I called to rebook another flight, I was on hold for 75 minutes. Yes, that was 75 minutes. I was switched from British Air to Finn Air and then back to British Air. It was a mess."
Pros: "The crew were great, boarding was very easy."
Cons: "The seats were narrow and breakfast was poor."
Pros: "Everything was fine, food was better than expected, on time"
Cons: "Passport control at Miami flat out socks and seems to be getting worse."
Cons: "Boarding at Gate E46 was disorganised both in timing ans execution. We were told on checkin that boarding would be early and it was late, closer to the original estimated time and then the order of boarding, parents with kids, then ExecClub and Business, and then others was ignored..."
Pros: "Ticket agent was courteous, helpful, set up the positive vibes for our flight."
Cons: "Our experience was great,"
Pros: "They need to improve confort and food choices! Overall: very good!"
Pros: "Cordial and helpful crew members. Food was excellent."
Cons: "entertainment was not functioning through out the flight."
Pros: "Plenty of choice on the inflight video. Paid extra for better seats, which allowed for some sleep during the overnight flight."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to poor weather at Heathrow, nothing can be done about that, but it meant that we did not take off until after 22:00. Drinks were served almost immediately but it was close to 23:30 before a meal was served and 00:30 before this was cleared away. Lights were then dimmed but at 05:00 breakfast was served. A cottage cheese bagel was the last thing I wanted to see and when we asked for some water, we were told that there was none available. We landed at 06:25 but then had to sit on the tarmac for 15-20 minutes as there were no vacant gates for us. (This had the effect of increasing the parking fee for the driver waiting to pick us up, as he was not aware that we were sitting on the tarmac). Please note all times are New Orleans times. Hence actual time of landing was 12:25 BST. And talking of New Orleans, I would not class this as an International Airport. It is dilapidated, inefficient and lacking facilities."
Pros: "The crew was very attentive"
Cons: "The flight was a bit delayed. Overall a good experience!"
Cons: "Announcing gate information only 45 minutes before departure and having only 25 minutes to get there before gate closing is very inconvenient and nerve wracking."
Pros: "The wide variety of movies"
Cons: "No options for break fast on the last rows, and I get the feeling the Snack Menu rans out pretty quickly"
Pros: "The food out of London was excellent, as was the overall service."
Cons: "The flight was oversold and so I lost my seat, and had to wait on standby before I was given a seat, even though I had an assigned seat when I booked my ticket. Very bad!"
Pros: "Great entertainment system, and good food. Thank you for the free wine, blanket and pillow."
Cons: "Seats in the back are very uncomfortable. Seats are too close together. If the passenger in front reclines there is no room at all. I assume space was taken out to accommodate the first class cubes."
Pros: "The crew was awesome and helpful"
Cons: "BA took my kids Trolleys and when we off board the plan they told us wait we will give you the Trolleys on the gate, we wait for 30 mins and then informed us that the Trolleys will be with the bags on the bag area. This make us to wait 1 hrs in Costume as it was crowded. People who traveled in economy class left airport before us"
Pros: "The check-in process at the airport in Chicago was efficient and the person who helped us was friendly"
Cons: "-I was unable to check-in online and I think it's because my name got messed up in the reservation system even though I entered it correctly -Compared to other airlines, BA does not stop by frequently to offer beverages. Food and beverage service provided by BA faded in comparison to what was provided by American Airlines on the way back. - Our flight was delayed due to weather, but we also sat in the plane for a long period of time with no explanation. -We appreciated that BA automatically re-booked us on another flight (although it was not the next flight), and provided 2 meal tickets for 10 euro each. There was no other compensation for the incurred delay (about 2.5 hours)"
Pros: "Left late but arrived on time"
Cons: "Had to pay for water (unless you wanted bathroom water) and juice or coffee."
Pros: "I liked the movies and the entertainments on the plane."
Cons: "People like old when it comes to history, traditions, restaurants etc. But when it comes to travel and technology people don't. Two of my friend's entertainment monitors were broken, bugs with the program all the time, no wifi on board. Compared to other airlines BA was quite disappointing."
Pros: "I felt like the flight attendants were extra nice on this flight! The super positive attitude alone made the long flight much more pleasant :)"
Cons: "Landing was a little rough--big, choppy dips during descent. Not as smooth as other large commercial flights I've taken."
Cons: "We were told not to worry when there was no plane at the gate when we arrived. Then we were told not to worry that the plane was being towed to the gate when it did land in Schipol. They were aware that many on the plane were trying to make a fairly quick connection in London. And it was after that connection would have already been missed that they let us know that our flight was canceled and we would have to go back to get our luggage and get re-assigned to another plane. We stood for TWO HOURS to be reassigned with only 2 agents helping a whole plane full of people. Of course, we missed the last flight out that could have connected us. We were told to go to an agent when we got to London to get a hotel room and they would have us all sorted. They did not have us all sorted and that took another half hour. We were at the airport in Schipol for SEVEN hours [and two trips through passport control] before our rescheduled flight to London boarded. When we landed in London, we had to go to the arrivals desk for them to be informed that we needed a hotel. We were able to sleep about 3 hours and had to get back to the airport for an early morning flight. Everyone we dealt with was kind and respectful, but the Airline itself was ill-prepared to handle this cancellation. In addition, they said they would not re-book at the gate, but those who were angry and aggressive were able to do so and get out on the day we were supposed to. Pretty crummy end to a trip."
Pros: "British Airways crew was the nicest and most kind staff I've had an experience with. Definitely top notch."
Cons: "I'm not an expert in airport logistics, but I don't understand why tests are done after the customers have already boarded. Very poor experience when the test failed and we deboarded."
Pros: "Clear instructions on board Food was good Service from the crew was good"
Pros: "The flight attendants were cheerful and ever so attentive. Love & appreciate the hospitality rendered. I like that there is a vegetatian meal option too."
Cons: "I could do with a little more leg space but I suppose it is not possible. An ice cream as replacemenrlt perhaps?"
Pros: "Seats were spacious, they greeted travelers with champagne, flight attendants were very friendly and helpful."
Pros: "I enjoyed how courteous the team was, there was great customer service provided. They were prompt and the flight was on time."
Cons: "I wish there was a way to make sleeping/resting more comfortable for coach and business class."
Pros: "New plane is shiny; entertainment system is an upgrade."
Cons: "No bathroom in Economy Plus; the 2-3-2 seating arrangement in E+ is a downgrade from the 2-2-2 of the 767; the windows that don't seem to fully block the sun."
Pros: "Very professional staff"
Pros: "The crew was amazing the flight went well."
Cons: "I payed extra to be in premium economy and ingot put next to free upgrade and the flight was empty behind me so I had no room and I payed more just an unfair and ridiculous waste of money if I have people all around me and none behind me I shouldn’t have to pay for something if there giving it to the people so I get less riom"
Pros: "The choice of new movies!"
Cons: "On my side crew lady was almost rude, for sure not friendly nor smiling. A lot of space for improvement there."
Pros: "Crew was good. I slept and they didn't bother me."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of"
Pros: "Nothing. The plane was late. The WiFi didn’t work. The plane was hot in 90 degree weather and after travelling almost 19 hours I needed a little comfort."
Cons: "At least make the WiFi better."
Cons: "They should let you know, at booking time, that seat 35J is smaller than the rest of seat in Economy class"
Cons: "American airlines conection left us behind. Have to wait 24 h for next flight in Dallas Airport DFW with no assistance of any kind, because of "weather conditions". It a shame, never again American Airlines."
Pros: "The crew was amazing! And the seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The over weight passenegers need to keep their arms and elbows, within their seat space. And not been inconsiderate and turn a light on at night, while they are sleeping and the other person next to them, is not, because of it!!"
Cons: "Full plane with no Main Cabin Extra seats left over = painful flight for someone over 6 feet."
Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "Good food onboard and very comfortable seats"
Cons: "American Airlines postponed my flight for 12 hours without a concrete explanation. After complaining they offered for us to travel with Latam but my luggage wasn’t transferred to the other flight. I arrived more than 12 hours ago and I’m still waiting to hear from them."
Pros: "High end entertainment system."
Cons: "Didn’t like the food. Could be better comparing to other airlines. There was no film that I wanted to see..."
Pros: "Very attentative crew"
Cons: "Charging for WiFi"
Pros: "Great crew, good food served several times. Entertainment was very flexible."
Cons: "F/a’s are haphazard and disinterested in their customers. Below average experience."
Cons: "The food is very tasty, but AA has not changed the menu in at least one year."
Pros: "We arrived safely. We were late but arrived safely. When we had to spend the night en route, the customer service desk was very kind and helpful."
Cons: "Crew was grumpy and very unhelpful Lots of mechanical delays Kept being assured we would make our connections despite leaving late. In the end we had to change our route in order to have a chance at making it to our destination that day. Even that didn’t work though; we had to spend the night in Charlotte."
Pros: "For the long flights business class is the way to go."
Cons: "Cabin crew seem frustrated and don't like the work"
Pros: "We hit a very bad bout of turbulence. They were concerned as to our wellbeing and comfort throughout the flight."
Pros: "My wife and I have flown on many airlines. This was one of our best experiences. All the staff that we came across were ridiculously helpful and very understanding. Despite us getting held up in traffic and running quite late, staff members of both American Airlines and Qantas were extremely calming and reassuring the whole way through. Flight was extremely comfortable and entertainment was fantastic. Made the trip really easy."
Cons: "Food wasn't the greatest. Barely touched the breakfast and dinner meal. Supposedly the flight had free wifi, but I honestly couldn't eat that to work for me."
Pros: "El embarque fue rápido y ordenado."
Cons: "El vuelo fue operado por American Airlines. Era un 777 viejo, con pantallas antiguas, servicio de entretenimiento pobre, con películas que no se podían iniciar cuando uno quería."
Pros: "Like the drink & snack bar that is always open. Crew kept bathrooms maintained reasonably well."
Cons: "They were out of some of the drink and food options. The Vegetarian special meals were poor."
Pros: "The guy at the initial ticket counter was wonderful and took his time addressing my needs."
Pros: "QF operated by American Airlines. First time flying AA from LAX to SYD (typically do this trip once a year). Overall a good experience, much better than I was anticipating. They diid not charge for surfboard, which was great. Plane is smaller than Qantas Airbus 380, so boarding and getting off plane was quicker. Would fly again."
Pros: "It wasn't bad for an American based international flight, but also not wonderful. Crew was great. Snacks were good. The extensive entertainment options were great and enjoyed extensively."
Cons: "The vegetarian options were AWFUL. Like, really really bad. Seats seemed smaller than previous flights."
Pros: "We flew with 4 different airlines on our trip to New Zealand and American Airlines was by far the best. We were comfortable and had plenty of good food and free entertainment. I would fly with American Airlines again."
Cons: "I can't think of anything."
Pros: "My flight was first class."
Pros: "Decent movies"
Cons: "Seats are incredibly close to one another. I'm pretty short (5'5") and I felt cramped to say the least. The food isn't great, it's okay but don't expect to be wanting seconds."
Pros: "I loved the Qantas plane that took us from LAX to Sudney. It was so quiet and smooth, and each seat in coach had very slight improvements , such as a head rest that moved, and cushions that atually felt comfortable. I think it was a new Dreamliner or something similar. AA should use these."
Pros: "Overall, it was a decent flight. Tucked way in the back, but no major issues."
Cons: "One flight attendant spent the majority of the flight flirting with the guy behind me. Another had a voice so loud that I could hear him through my earplugs and Bose headphones while trying to sleep on the overnight flight. I also don't like that I booked with Qantas and ended up on an American flight."
Cons: "My itinerary said 12pm departure from Sydney to Los Angeles. However, the departure time was 10:15am, and not on Qantas airlines, but on American. It was luck I found out about the changed time. Also, since the airline changed, it took extra time to find the correct counter to check-in."
Cons: "American Airlines isn't as friendly or accommodating as other airlines or staff."
Pros: "overall best airline I flew, steve"
Pros: "Flight crew was fantastic. Pilot did a superb job. Whole flight was like sliding on glass."
Pros: "The crew was really nice, food was good, movie selection was also good."
Cons: "Too crowded. Too many seats made it too hard and inconvenient to get up to stretch out or walk around on such a long flight. Which is recommended to prevent blood clots."
Pros: "Most of the flight attendants were cheerful and helpful."
Cons: "One flight attendant may have been under the weather - not cheerful nor helpful."
Pros: "The seat was a lot better than the first leg. Also the entertainment screen worked."
Cons: "The food was okay but not that good, The male crew steward was very friendly with a couple across from me and gave each of them 8 glasses of wine, even without asking for them, He would just show up with two glasses of wine every 30 mins. All the lady's working were great and friendly."
Pros: "me and my wife, enjoyed the flight. flight crew served very very well."
Cons: "no complaint so far."
Pros: "Food was good"
Cons: "American Airlines gave away my upgraded seat that I paid for. Eventually gave a refund, but was unapologetic."
Cons: "Me cambiaron de asiento arbitrariamente, yo hice check in 24 horas antes para escoger los asientos que me acomodaban a mí y mi acompañante de 12 años ( los primeros) y resulta que por un cambio de avión me dieron los últimos al lado del baño. Lo que fue horrible, el olor, los pasajeros haciendo fila al lado de mi asiento todo el tiempo, sin poder descansar o estar tranquila. Comprendo que pueden haber descompuestos en el avión y cambiarlo por otro pero al menos al re asignar asientos deberían ver los lugares iniciales que tenía cada uno y no dejar a quienes habían solicitado con anticipación los primeros en el último, literalmente en los últimos puestos. Además la comida es bastante mala."
Cons: "The airlines cancelled my flight. I had an early morning meeting in Sydney so I couldn't fly out on the only other Qantas flight (which was 2 hours earlier than my scheduled). Spent 4 hours on hold with American and Qantas before being rebooked for the following day. Had to pay for another night's lodging and food."
Pros: "Great flight"
Pros: "I like the entertainment."
Cons: "Food and distribution of the food. Unfortunately on my flight the flight attendant was so busy that forgot to come back for the water/coffee drinks."
Cons: "I have dietary restrictions and called Qantas and ordered a special meal. Little did I know I was supposed to call American Airlines so I never got a meal I could eat. Apparently Qantas doesn't relay the meal requests to American. Awful service!!"
Pros: "The entertainment system and wifi price were great."
Cons: "We prepaid to select our seats and when we went to check in our seats had been changed. No apologies or effort was made to fix the situation. They said it happens all the time. They should never charge for seat selection if they do not honor it! Total rip-off"
Pros: "Ok entertainment. "Bar" setup in the middle galley (water and juice) was nice."
Cons: "The seats are so very narrow that having extra legroom doesn't really matter - only a child or a very, very thin person will find these seats anywhere near adequate. Food (which went flying or falling into my lap as I tried to eat without elbowing my neighbor) was laughably bad, even the crew said they were embarrassed to be serving it. On that note, the crew did not seem happy with the airline, and agreed that economy on the 788 is one of the worst cabins they fly. Entertainment options were good, but when the person in front of you reclines, so does the screen, so if you want to stay more upright you can't really see the screen well. By far one of the worst economy experiences I have ever had. I will go out of my way to chose alternate routes in the future, even going via MIA to avoid the 788."
Pros: "Excellent flight service; good meals, comfortable, enjoyed the wine and beer as drinks and with meals."
Pros: "The people were amazing. They were the sweetest people and were so eger to learn. I have never been so neverous. We experienced a place where I need to help the ppl of the island and hopefully make the experience better. Fijians are so generous and amazing I will be back"
Pros: "Flight was safe and early then estimates timd landing"
Cons: "Meal is not enough for older people (my mom over 60y) then i think that is not enough to adults too Meal is not good tatste like before when fly with quatas only No appetizer like before too fly with quatas we can eat 6 - 8 times include snack"
Pros: "So few people aboard. Allowed for great service by flight crew."
Cons: "Catering in COVID era leaves a lot to be desired."
Cons: "Economy seating legroom could be better for long-haul flight"
Pros: "Very good no complaint at all"
Pros: "How the cabin windows were adjustable, great drink selections thank you!"
Cons: "One lady with a bob just hated her life working with a bad attitude, definitely made me uncomfortable"
Pros: "Movies and drinks"
Cons: "More frequent service"
Pros: "Entertainment is excellent!"
Cons: "Seats are very close together but the flight is short"
Pros: "People caring for people. We flew for a familiar emergency and the personnel on board understood the situation and was very kind."
Cons: "Such a long domestic flight should have entertainment in business class at least"
Pros: "Comfortable airplane even in economy. All on time and good service."
Cons: "You didn't get my bags to airport on time and so I missed my connecting flight which was 90 minutes after my previous flight, I have an 8 month old son and you made us spend another 4 hours waiting for a flight."
Pros: "Good seats, service, express baggage handling."
Cons: "Getting to San Francisco flight was canceled, make a line for 3.30 hours to let us know what they were going to do with us, they give the place to go at 3 a.m with not directions were to take a bus , later someone come and told us the bus stop running at that time and I have to go upstairs to take a taxi, I was alone and not use to be alone at that time never in my live I had to pretend I was afraid. Of course the hotel only take you until 12pm so I spend so many hours in the airport waiting for re ticketing they told us to be at 6pm we wait and I got my ticket leaving at 9.45pm but the crew come one hour and half late. From Panama to Lima flight was late . I had a conference very important to be Saturday morning, I lost my investment and relationships with the company I was going to start a business there excuse was they couldn’t relay on my punctuality, honestly. I got there more than a day and half LATE. If you ask me how was my trip I will tell you horrible and I can’t recommend anybody, this company doesn’t have any personality at all"
Pros: "Food could be a lot better and healthier."
Cons: "Plane was not overbooked."
Pros: "Crew were good, flight not too noisy and was thankfully quite full but not complete."
Cons: "Poor food and food choices. Poor choices for in-flight movies and tv (was much better on the SFO -> Frankfurt leg)"
Cons: "I was seated next to an obese man who was racist and homophobic, and when I asked the flight attendant if I could move to the empty seat next to me because he was taking up a chunk of my seat, I was told “no” because I am not a united mileage plus member. not so nice! If i pay for an aisle seat I expect to be able to “sit” in the whole seat (and not to mention free from hatred)"
Pros: "Nice crew. Free tv for delay"
Cons: "Flight delayed and then boarded very suddenly"
Cons: "This airline was by far the worst I have used in years. Their staff, service and facilities need improvement"
Pros: "Very easy to do on-line"
Cons: "My United Membership was not reflected in this trip"
Pros: "The international flight was very good. Staff were excellent and very friendly."
Cons: "The international terminal at LAX is terrible as far as people being on hand or being able to offer assistance on getting to your next connecting flight. Getting 30 minutes to make a connecting flight that is on the other side of the airport with noone being able to tell you where your connecting flight is is almost impossible. The in-flight entertainment console was broken and was unusable during the flight. It would work for 5 minutes then glitch and the screen would flash until you stowed it away and waited 10 minutes to try again."
Pros: "There was no in-flight entertainment. I like when the planes have the TV's so you can watch."
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Long flights should have something edible."
Pros: "I enjoyed the upgrade in my seating"
Pros: "Food for purchase"
Cons: "Waiting on the tarmac for 2 hours and not being offered food or drink or to be taken back to the gate"
Pros: "Exceptional service by the flight attendants."
Pros: "We toured the Boeing plant in Everett (Seatle.) I wish I had bought a T-shirt I saw in the gift shop. It read, "If it ain't Boeing, I ain't going.""
Cons: "Except in the row right behind 1st Class, the seats are kinda crammed (in.) On a commercial on one flight, during the spiel about safety, the movie screen showed about 5 or 6 cabin attendants putting up their trays in prep for landing. Tey all leaned forward as far as they could to reach their trays. I looked around. I could reach my tray with my arms at my sides. If the actual airplane had had it'w seats spaced apart as in the movie, the plane would have been fully loaded with some 35 passengers. I forgot what airline it was, maybe yours?"
Cons: "There was a lack of information the whole trip. We couldn't hear the announcements of the crew or pilot so we didn't know what was going on. When. The landing gear malfunctioned it took a very long time to hear what was going on. Then, upon deplaning, there was only one single gate agent waiting to help the flight. Very poor service!"
Pros: "That the plane got me back to the US."
Cons: "Flight crew should learn how to smile. In general, not even vaguely friendly. Food was the absolute worse I have eaten in many, many years ( I have millions of miles of air travel). Seats old and hard and extremely close together."
Pros: "The flight attendant let me put my guitar on the plane."
Cons: "The flight was an hour delayed."
Pros: "Personal, friendly service from the staff. Smooth flight and perfect arrival."
Pros: "We traveled with 4 kids and staff was great to make the flight as comfortable as possible. 787 Dreamliner was awesome"
Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Cons: "It was just a very long trip, so the seats became uncomfortable after a while."
Pros: "TV and entertainment"
Pros: "The crew was comfortable and friendly, overall cruisy for a 14 hr flight."
Cons: "We departed 1.5 hrs late, over a baggage discrepancy and had to return from the tarmac to the gate, which seemed unnecessary and probably had something to do with the same passenger they were calling every five minutes for over an hour before we even began boarding. We then arrived late, which extremely rushed my already super tight transfer in LAX and cause a lot of stress and frustration with the airline."
Cons: "The only disappointment was that internet via WiFi was all but unusable. If the service is not viable while on this route, it should not be offered."
Cons: "Lack of leg room"
Pros: "Very little good things to say besides it was a new plane"
Cons: "They had one of four meal options left by the time they got to me, a platinum member. The seat also would not recline to 180 degrees"
Pros: "United flights are always over booked/ full. But the crew always remains patient and smiling."
Cons: "The snack provided really could be improved with flights over 3 hours."
Pros: "Good flight, on time, friendly flight attendants and decent service in economy."
Cons: "PDE still doesn't work on Android 6 or above. Has been like this for 6+ months. Also wouldn't work on a MacBook."
Pros: "We sat on the runway for an hour. We shouldn't have boarded if there was a long delay."
Pros: "My whole experience was easy and comfortable. A big thank you to the woman who helped me check in at the United kiosk in Sydney. She saw that I was struggling and assisted me until completion. The flight was uneventful, which is really good! I also had the entire row to myself which gave me room to spread out for the 13 hour flight. Great experience:)"
Cons: "The food was probably the weakest part of my flight from Sydney to Los Angeles. The eggs had no taste. I'd prefer a simple oatmeal or cereal for breakfast."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival. Luggage claim on time."
Cons: "Seats too small and i am a small build. No entertainment even if I paid for it. Always a line at the two bathrooms, need more."
Pros: "There was absolutely nothing to like about this trip."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed 2 hours due to a ground stop at the next airport. Upon finally boarding the plane for a second time, we sat at the Albany airport for abou 40 minutes. When arriving to the Newark airport, there was communication issues and no way for us to get to a terminal so we were stuck on that plane for 2 hours. While stuck on the plane my connecting flight got delayed twice then cancelled. Once finally in the airport, I waited an hour in line for customer service only to tell me they couldn't even put me up in a hotel because it was air traffic controls fault, even though NO other airline was down. They gave me a $10 food voucher, apparently that would fix everything. I had to put myself in a $130 hotel room and being a broke college student I wasn't expecting that. I will never fly united again, it was he worst experience I've ever had and one of the most stressful days. This airline is horrible."
Cons: "The gentleman beside me had 2 children with him but only purchased 2 seats. He and his children were in my lap and kicking me the entire time. It was a full flight so I couldn't change seats. I paid $330 for a FULL seat to myself, not so I could share the space with the people beside me because United allowed them to purchase 2 seats for 3 people. As a full-paying customer I shouldn't be the one to suffer because of it."
Pros: "Left in time"
Cons: "The plane was so unbelievably hot. The air hardly blew out of the vents. Also, they left the lights on the entire time on a flight that left at 10pm and arrived at 12:30pm (11:30pm local time). It made for a very uncomfortable ride"
Pros: "The actual flight was good. Didn't eat or drink so don't know. The less than perfect rating was because we left an hour late. Don't know how they handled folks with connecting flights but that can be a very stressful situation."
Cons: "That it was late"
Pros: "Appreciated nonstop flight from OC to Dulles in under five hours"
Cons: "I did not appreciate having to await seats assignments at the gate when I paid for the tickets in May. My fiancé and I did not get to spend the flight together on the flight there. Coming back was smooth but through a different airline."
Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "The drink service was late and the seats were small"
Pros: "I liked that everything was on time and there was no hold ups"
Cons: "Food ...... Did not purchase so can't say anything about it but no one minded if we brought our own. No problems"
