Pros: "I couldn’t eat the chicken for lunch, and I told the crew to change it for me and bring the vegetarian, but nobody brought anything. I was starving until the next meal."
Cons: "Take out the chicken sausage from your menu"

Pros: "The crew really cares about their passengers"

Pros: "Excellent crew and great food."

Pros: "The crew were welcoming and accommodating, whether you wanted to sleep or to watch entertainment or eat/drink."

Pros: "Crew was terrific. Great service. New aircraft are comfortable too."
Cons: "Food. Meals are of poor quality. Bland in taste and rubbery texture."

Pros: "Amazing staff, clean plane, good food, comfortable seats in business"
Cons: "Plane was very warm. Uncomfortably warm Movie selection was boring. Too many Marvel films which was ridiculous."

Cons: "They do not understand the word priority at Doha airport. Business class passengers boarded last."

Pros: "The crew was unparalleled. Really. Attentive. Friendly."
Cons: "Nothing could have been better beyond the signs at the gate."

Pros: "The flight was on time"
Cons: "When a very large man is placed next to someone else who is in a middle seat and cannot use the arm rests on either side, I would think the hostesses would make an effort to move one of the three considering there were multiple other open seats. He was also very old and could hardly stand up when needed. It was the most uncomfortable flight, if I had the money, I would definitely fly business class"

Pros: "Friendly crew (didn’t go above or beyond but polite and accommodated to simple requests). Plenty of meals/snacks and drinks offered."
Cons: "The seats barely recline backward which really meant I was basically upright trying to sleep for 14 hours on one leg and 6 hours on the next. My luggage was lost, despite being promised it would be delivered that day I had to wait 24 hours."

Cons: "Great"

Cons: "The boarding process was ridiculous. The staff delayed boarding of zone 2 passengers until ALL zone 1 passengers could be located and boarded which could easily have delayed takeoff. They went so far as to page missing zone 1 pax several times and asked people sitting on gate area which zone they"

Pros: "Crew were so good"
Cons: "Everything is good"

Pros: "The Crew were excellent, friendly, professional and attentative."
Cons: "We checked in seven and a half hours before this flight as we had just flown from Melbourne Australia to Qatar landing that same day at 0435am in the morning with this flight being delayed from 805 am to 12 noon then to find that we had been allocated the last row right at the toilets. Horrible."

Pros: "Great crew. Met every request and did a very professional, yet personal job."
Cons: "Overall meals were best I've had on flights. Did not care for last one but probably just a personal taste."

Cons: "During check-in, I observed inconsistent application of rules with respect to hand luggage. My carry-on and laptop bag combined were 12 kgs and was told that I had to pay excess baggage fees. While, there were quite a few people on the plane whose hand luggage was clearly above 12 kgs."

Pros: "Boarding process was good. But security check is inconsistent at different locations within the Airport terminal."
Cons: "Poor Seat comfort. Too narrow seats. USB charger were not working. Tamil language movies were very few. Crew was efficient but were not polite and not cordial."

Pros: "Polite crew, food was pretty good."
Cons: "Did not have the duty free item I pre-ordered. I asked the crew 4 times about it, four times because they said that they would check but they never got back to me to tell me that it was out of stock; until I pressed the issue."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "The food was very poor"

Cons: "Bad app don’t trust"

Cons: "Wrost app I don’t advise any one use it cause"

Pros: "Foods, crew are accomodating and all sevice facility are very good"
Cons: "Just update the movies regularly"

Cons: "Thanks"

Pros: "There were a lot if security checks but the boarding crew was very helpful and let me check in a bag at rhe last minute with duty free shopping items that i would not have been able to carry with me on-board the airplane."
Cons: "No internet and the food was mediocre at best."

Pros: "Hindu meal only be vegetarian"
Cons: "All is good"

Pros: "Flight was very comfortable and a pleasant ride"
Cons: "food service could be a bit more prompt"

Pros: "Business class was wonderful liked pjs, food, seating. Etc"
Cons: "Crew left a small amount of champagn in a glass which fell on me when I was asleep. Crew only offered first meal after that did not offer food only when I requested it. Limited gluten/ dairy free options"

Cons: "My 17 yr old son is stranded in Doha because Qatar cancelled his connection to Nairobi which is unprofessional and terribly worrisome . I, his mother, am in Greece with no way ofhelping him get to Kenya. Qatar offers no restitution and no help . The worst situation right now!"

Pros: "Great on board bar"

Cons: "very upset about fee i was charged for overweight luggage, and the unclear wording on their sites baggage allowance rules."

Pros: "Boarding, the welcome on board, the food choice and quality were all excellent. The seat was comfortable and I got a few hours sleep. The entertainment screen was big and clear, and the choice of films was good."
Cons: "The choice of films and tv programmes, was good, but before watching each one i chose, I had to endure a couple off minutes of an advert- the same one every time."

Pros: "Crew was friendly."
Cons: "Catering not up-to the standard. Ran out of food. Seats too congested"

Cons: "I was seated between two overweight/obese passengers and as such was very uncomfortable throughout the long-haul flight. There was very little room to move as their body habitus spilt over onto my seating area and occupied the arm space. There needs to be serious consideration to make it mandatory for overweight/obese passengers to purchase two seats to accommodate their size."

Cons: "delayed flight"

Pros: "Large monitor and many choices of movies. Good food, efficient boarding."

Pros: "Nothing, no one was helpful at all."
Cons: "I arrived to the airport 2 hours prior to my departure to find out that my booking was cancelled. I never received a notification or nothing. I purchased a multi-trip and failed to used the ticket I purchased because I had to leave Qatar early since the person I was staying with was disorganized and flew out the country. I then purchased a different ticket with another airline because it was cheaper. Since I did that, they cancelled my whole trip. HOW? And I payed for a service I clearly didn't receive. As a result, stranded, I had to pay an additional $1,125 for a one way ticket home - more than my original round trip multi flight purchase."

Pros: "When we flew into Melbourne it was not a happy experience. Seats were cramped and arm rests wouldn't raise. The flight out, even though on the same model plane, was better. There was more room and we could raise the arm rests. For a 13+ hour flight that makes a big difference."
Cons: "Because the tickets listed the same type of plane in both the bad and not so bad flight, it is very hard to know what we're going to get. I'd love to be able to plan to avoid the bad experience, but if they use the same plane in two configurations, there isn't enough information to do so."

Pros: "Website and in-flight service is quite good. Flights take-off and land on time. The crew is international and quite professional."
Cons: "Onboard entertainment system is not quite good. The touch screen is not responsive and the movie selection is not very good. This is where Emirates excels."

Cons: "Chicken sandwich was not good"

Pros: "Food came out 1 am melb time ,2 hours after departure ."

Pros: "Seat and space"
Cons: "Food was pathetic."

Pros: "The crew was very nice and seemed very accommodating. The flight was on time to leave, or maybe even a few minutes early. The food was very good. Overall it was a very comfortable flight.Oh and the little toiletry bag was a very nice touch. I for sure used the socks in there and the toothbrush was bonus."
Cons: "I didn't have any issues on this flight. Everything was great for me."

Pros: "The crew and the airline was a great experience."
Cons: "I wish there was more leg space between the seats."

Pros: "It was the first time using Qatar Airways and I'll continue doing so in the future."

Cons: "Flight was delayed"

Pros: "For a change, I found the cabin crew extremely courteous and helpful. A remarkable change from the last so many flights flown across different airlines."
Cons: "The entertainment system is poor. Hardly any movies/shows worth watching. The leg space sucks. Agree I was flying cattle class, but even then it seemed to be too cramped."

Pros: "Better than costumer service in Thailand"

Pros: "I loved the customer service from check-in to landing. I also loved the fact that there was plenty of food, and especially liquids provided frequently. What a delight it was to fly with Qatar."
Cons: "As hard as i try i cannot think of anything. Keep up the wonderful work. One rarely experiences that kind of service."

Pros: "I was given great service by a Nadine in Detroit with JetBlue. She was very calm and helpful with me getting a baggage claim."
Cons: "My bag wasn't transferred to the next plane in Boston so I couldn't get my bags when I got off the plane. I wish someone would have told me because j waited in Detroit for about 1 hour for my bags without any mention of bags that didn't transfer."

Pros: "Reasonably priced"
Cons: "More cushioned seats"

Pros: "The views from the plane"
Cons: "A bit more room"

Pros: "Crew is so friendly"
Cons: "Drink and snack selection in first"

Pros: "The crew was great. I have sensitive ears, so sitting beside the loud engine is not something that I liked. I was uncomfortable, until I moved."
Cons: "having some ear plugs"

Cons: "The seats and the flight entertainment."

Pros: "The gate attendant switched me to an earlier flight. Made my night much better."

Cons: "I really have no complaints. Airplane seats are never all that comfortable, but short flight, so these were okay."

Pros: "Great service."
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Very"
Cons: "Easier access to entertainment"

Pros: "Crew was very good. Long flights get boring. But that’s not the airlines fault."

Pros: "Cleanliness of the aircraft and friendliness of crew."
Cons: "Entertainment is not free, and you have to have your own device. The food was a very small snack for the length of the flight."

Pros: "It’s wonderful to fly like our grandparents did with the style & comfort along with the service they enjoyed!! I cannot think of any other airline that serves a meal and on going snacks. I feel I got first class service (which I cannot afford) for a coach rate! Stepping onto the plane you get a sense of the islands. I’d recommend this airline to anyone!!"
Cons: "Being a 6 ft woman, leg room is important for me, which I had, but the seat where a bit close together."

Pros: "Line up process to board"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "The crew was great. Super apologetic for the terrible delay"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 5 hours and 2 of those hours we spent on the plane before they deplaned us because they couldn't hold us any longer. One day of my 4 day vacation was completely ruined"

Pros: "The staff on the flight was great."
Cons: "Screaming babies everywhere."

Pros: "We upgraded our seating for roomier and it was fabulous ..."
Cons: "The WiFi did not work and a snack instead of a meal and having a six hour flight with NO entertainment was not cool in my book"

Pros: "Boarding was great, seats were not too cramped, flight was very smooth."
Cons: "Hawaiian Air changed our seat assignments which I did not find out about until checking in for our flight the night before. My wife and I were 20 rows apart and we were moved from aisle seats to window seats. Flight was fully booked so no way to change. The aircraft did not change, so I am unsure why seat assignments changed."

Pros: "Fast boarding and fast disembarking."
Cons: "No issues"

Pros: "Everything was fine in general."
Cons: "Turbulance but pilot did not addeess it by saying he would change altitude to avoid it."

Pros: "From check in to inflight excellent"
Cons: "Nothing other then screaming babies, people don’t fly with your screaming baby, do stay cations"

Pros: "The Service, crew and flight were all good, very good landing."
Cons: "The flat bed seating was uncomfortable, I was squashed up and happy to get out of the seat on arrival. I was seated in 1C"

Pros: "Punctuality,polite,courteous staff"
Cons: "Can't recline seat for particular."

Pros: "Smooth flight from LAX to Lihue."
Cons: "There was no counter help or service on layover at Lihue; first time there. No leg room with Silver (raft or?) under seat."

Pros: "Everyone was smiling and full of aloha spirit as always which is why i LOVE flying w Hawaiian!"
Cons: "Except this time... only time this has happened. Went to get boarding pass- had a small rolling suitcase (bought specifically for carry on and have used for last two years flying 6+ times per year) and a shoulder bag/purse. A woman flagged me down a so walked by saying my rolling case was too large an too heavy. I said “oh no i use this everytime i fly. It’s specifcally for carry on. Also it’s not even full so there’s no way it’s too heavy” also how would she know by looking how much it weights? In short she got very angry at me and said i have no choice but to check it. Then went over to counter and the lady said “you don’t need to check this is the correct size” she was very nice and i explained what happened. I’m just telling you this as maybe some of the newer employees are taking their jobs too seriously. Aloha!"

Pros: "Flight Attendant and flight was on time..."

Pros: "The flight to lax was good. It was awesome. The flight to HI sucked. But you can't win them all. I'm happy i guess."
Cons: "Everything was cool. I guess."

Pros: "Food, service, and on time."
Cons: "The temperature is too cold inside the carbine"

Pros: "Larger seats. Snacks"
Cons: "Check in was a pain but we survived."

Pros: "Not that much, your airline is going to a place that is limited in air travel competition."
Cons: "The food is terrible, the buying options for food is dreadful. The seats have no USB to charge a device (the most important feature to me. And every airline is required to have its customers fill out that form to come into Hawaii - BUY A PACK OF PENS!!!!! It's not my responsibility to have a pen - totally annoyed about this one small amenity not being offered. Also I'm sick of hearing your plug for a credit card."

Pros: "The staff was very friendly"

Cons: "Awful to be delayed and stuck at the airport for over 12 hours for anytime especially on a holiday. I was and am livid!"

Pros: "A mechanical issue meant our late night Sydney to Honolulu flight was cancelled. As a consequence, we were on the runway from 9:30 until 11:30 while they tried to fix the problem. Then we were at the airport until 1:00 am getting a hotel voucher and re-ticketed. Unfortunately, instead of having a day in Honolulu to deal with jet lag before going on to San Diego, we lost our Hilton reservation in Waikiki. We ended up getting a direct flight to LAX and on to San Diego. I will say the crew attempted to work with us. Daniel made an executive decision and got us on United. But no stopover in Hawaii."

Pros: "Seats were like a park bench, not comfy. Crew indifferent. It was such a short flight maybe that’s the best you can expect, but I would hesitate to book a longer flight on Hawaiian"
Cons: "See above"

Pros: "Breakfast, juice, smooth flight"

Pros: "Staff very friendly, quick flight but still gave us juice and a map of destination island. Nice touch"

Cons: "Our flight did not leave til 8, boarding was from 7:15-7:40, we arrive a little late, 7:19, but still makable and they would not let us put our bags on the plane. Where is this policy made clear for people? As far as we knew we still had 20 minutes. Our options were we could pay 700+ dollars per person to reroute our plane, or we could go to Hawaii without our stuff, which was just not within reason obviously."

Pros: "In-flight fruit juice was tasty."
Cons: "There was something wrong with the plane. Was not realized until the plane was loaded and doors were shut. We had to deplane and wait for new plane while they got crew transferred and plane ready. Ended up being about an hour delay - not too bad considering."

Pros: "The flight staff was amazing! It is really hard to fly 15 hours in one day but each flight was filled with amazing flight attendants and pilots!"

Cons: "There was no TV's for each individual.. It's a small complaint.. But yea.."

Pros: "And they assigned me a middle seat at the very back. Although I checked in one day prior."
Cons: "See above"

Cons: "Once we got to the airport we lost all assigned seating. Not good."

Pros: "The flight was on time and the trip was smooth"
Cons: "Food-poor. A plastic bag handed in your lap with 1/2 turkey on white and 1/2 Egg salad sandwich on stale wheat bread! It's so far from the service Hawaiian used to provide that it ruins the reputation more than helps it. Why bother? It's obvious that it's only a half hearted attempt at best. Asked for a better seat n got the seat next to the restroom. It was literally 5 1/2 hours on a flying toilet with people constantly in and out the whole trip. I should at least been warned."

Pros: "Online check in, no luggage, mobile boarding passes, boarded quickly and took off immediately LOL! Ideal flight!"

Pros: "There was one male worker who tried to bring me extra coleslaw cause he saw the other flight attendants not offer me anything instead of a meat centered meal. I appreciated that but didn't catch his name."
Cons: "The workers were so rude - especially a woman named Mi. they had no vegetarian options on the plane for food and basically laughed at me when I asked for it. They had no free entertainment at all not even a movie for everyone on the main monitors. They asked for volunteers to check their bags and I volunteered and when I made a connecting flight to Kauai (final stop Oahu which is a 35 min flight) I tried to switch my flight to an earlier one because I realized That I had a four hour layover before my 35 min flight -_- and they said that I would have been able to but since I checked my carry on I couldn't. And they said it was because my bag would get there much later than me - which I was upset about but understood. Fast forward 4 1/2 hours later and I land on Oahu. My bag is sitting at the terminal because it came over on a plane that got there before me. Totally unhappy - I fly to California and back almost every month and I've never had an experience like this"

Pros: "We got the seats we wanted, and didn't pay extra for it"
Cons: "The fact that we can't get 2 seats next to each other even"

Pros: "Very smooth boarding, take-off, landing by pilot & crew Very attentive, caring and nice cabin staff Fast baggage claim"
Cons: "Long waits to check baggage Breakfast was too rich (biscuit with spicy cheese), though the fruit was good I didn't mind not having a movie/tv to watch on screen, but would have liked to be able to listen to in-flight music Location of the life vest jackets took away a lot of leg room"

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Airline, scheduling, additional fees. Missed connection, communication system was not checked before departure causing a 2 hour ground delay."

Cons: "Heat was unable to be adjusted. It was very warm on the plane and we did not have overhead fans. One of our bags was lost and customer service was terrible in assisting us to locate the bag."

Pros: "My experience boarding was a bit of a disaster as the boards at the airport stated an incorrect gate and reported an hour delay which was not correct. I ended up having to sprint to make the flight in a different wing an hour before I thought it was leaving. I barely made it onboard. I think this is an issue with the airport, not the airline but this is the only forum I have to state this. My experience with the crew was amazing. Very welcoming and hospitable. My experience with the airport staff was the opposite. Very unhelpful and cold. The flight went fairly smoothly, but, as is the case with most American airlines these days, the seats are uncomfortable and cramped. The inflight meal was good (for airline food) and very much appreciated on the 6 hour flight. Overall, this was a pretty typical American flying experience. Unfortunately, I was returning from flying with Asian and Australian airlines which were much more comfortable and customer-focused, so my experience on Hawaiian seemed subpar."

Pros: "Seats were comfy, planes were new."
Cons: "Expensive entertainment on international flights No vegetarian or healthy food options, despite 20hours of flight time each way (NYC to Sydney via Honolulu) Absolute mayhem checking-in in Sydney and Honolulu. Hawaii airport is terrible for transfers."

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: "There was a lot of entertainment choices"
Cons: "Seats are so crammed. Plane was late."

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: "Onboard entertainment was not reliable on one of our TVs, and the earphones ports barely worked, had to hold the plugs to hear. MinimL food choices, and you had to go to the rear of the plane to get it. Staff on plane was not super friendly."

Pros: "Chicken wrap"
Cons: "No individual screens on back of seat rests. Old tube televisions in the ceiling, in the aisle walkway that don’t retract. No WiFi. Which means not even movies on your own device. And no power - neither usb nor 3 prong"

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: "Perfect!"

Pros: "Our flight was delayed for almost 3 hours. They accomodated us with free snacks and sandwiches. The flight crew were very professional and were nice to us, because a lot of us were worried about making our flight. They kept us updated with all the changes. They had good entertainment selections. The pilot got us to our destination about 5 minutes early."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed about 7 times, we changed gates twice, and the I got to my second layover with 20 minutes to spare instead of the usual 2 1/2 hours. When I tried asked the stewardess if I could deplane with business because I was running late for my connecting flight, she said they no longer do that because passengers don't listen to them. Instead of trying, she juat said no. I felt like an inconvience to her, like it was my fault I didn't have enough time between my flights."

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."

Pros: "Premium economy is the way to go for a long haul flight. We were comfortable and able to get some sleep."
Cons: "The crew on the way to Sydney was a little more present. There was always someone milling in the galley between the business class and premium economy cabin. The crew returning came through the cabin often and were attentive if you asked for them but you had to seek them out."

Cons: "51/2 hour delay!! Should have brought in another plane."

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."

Pros: "The business class cabin is one of the best in the business with a great seat and onboard product. The food was good and the snack bar is great for when you need something mid-flight. American has one of the best selections of inflight entertainment with tons of movies and TV shows available for their long-haul flights."
Cons: "Boarding at Sydney International Airport was a bit of a chore. There is a pre-screening area where they check passports and boarding passes prior to reaching the gate. People are randomly selected for secondary screening. Give yourself extra time to board."

Pros: "Entertainment comfort crew food fligjt"
Cons: "Not 1 thing"

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."

Cons: "No wifi nor power outlets. The entertainment was okay at best."

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: "Clean, smooth flight, on time. Enjoyed the blankets and the inflight movie options were good."
Cons: "Cramped, and we didn't get seats together... Hate the system where you have to pay $30-$95 additionally to choose your seats before check in, just doesn't seem fair when the tickets are already crazy expemsive and you're paying for your luggage as well... if you don't pay extra, you (we) end up sitting across from the restroom for six hours of in and out excitement."

Pros: "Audio was good movies can be heard and understood."
Cons: "No toillt paper,dirty not refreshed for a 15 hr flight. Back row neverhadfood choices and served cold coffee.should start at back also."

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: "Crew was very upbeat and attentive to passengers. We sat in Main Cabin plus and there was a lot of legroom."
Cons: "1. Limited menu of food for purchase 2. wifi did not work over the Pacific--their wifi is ground based rather than satellite based."

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: "Crew was friendly, food remarkably good for coach."
Cons: "Seats were comfortable bu"

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: "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"
Cons: "Nothing"

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: "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"

Cons: "Flight left 2.5 hrs late. Had to wait on tarmac 45 minutes then had to change planes and run to other end of Chicago airport. My friend was in a wheelchair so extremely inconvenient."

Pros: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."
Cons: "I eventually got to San Francisco. I missed my flight to Lihue and had to stay in the airport all night."

Pros: "The crew were pretty good. The entertainment system and selection of movies were superb. Even though they were the same plane/airline this plane offered more leg room than our previous flight."
Cons: "Limited choice from the beverage cart. Our group just doesn’t care for Coke products. But that seems more like a preference issue, so take it for what it’s worth."

Pros: "Aisle seat"
Cons: "Snack options"

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: "Good seats, service, express baggage handling."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "Great entertainment and arrived early"

Pros: "The breakfast sandwhich they gave me for free (because they didn’t have lunch? Idk they just said don’t worry anout it when I went to hand them my card)"
Cons: "Of course economy is just not comfy. Also I couldn’t sit with my girlfriend :( And the backside of the seat in front of me was dirty (fluid stains). They also didn’t have lunch on a 6 hour flight from 9am-3pm"

Cons: "cancelled"

Pros: "Food could be a lot better and healthier."
Cons: "Plane was not overbooked."

Pros: "Clean, good crew, not too cramped."
Cons: "Seats are very uncomfortable on the upright position. It would be nice to have some complementary food on a long haul. Even air Dolomiti on a 1 and a half hour flight offers better than... pretzels!"

Pros: "Crew was responsive to an engine circuit breaker issue while taxiing and returned to the gate to have it addressed. Took off two hours late, but secure in the knowledge that the problem was not a flight safety issue. Kudos to the crew."

Pros: "Awesome service"

Pros: "The service was excellent! The crew was happy and accommodating."
Cons: "Nothing."

Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Stuck in Denver because our flight was delayed so we missed our connection to Houston. Couldn’t get a hotel voucher because they are claiming a weather delay (which there was none)."

Cons: "This airline was by far the worst I have used in years. Their staff, service and facilities need improvement"

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."

Cons: "One hour on tarmac."

Pros: "I'm sure this flight would have been fine if it wasn't missed due to previous maintenance delays on my first flight causing a catastrophic snowball to my entire trip."

Pros: "Just couldn't recline enough to sleep"
Cons: "Pretzels were the only free food available."

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Connecting flight was to tight and over 25 gates away."

Pros: "Seats"
Cons: "I like that they had freer media for us to see and wifi abalibl"

Pros: "Same as above (for both flights"
Cons: "Same as above (for both flights"

Pros: "Nothing really. I'm glad Delta, Virgin, and Southwest have direct flies now so I don't have to deal with the worst airline in the history of humanity,"
Cons: "The worst support and irresponsible system canceling my seat and no support"

Cons: "Delayed for over 3 hours due to jetbridge being stuck to plane. Basically 2 5.5 hours have taken me 2 full days instead of one"

Cons: "Many delays. Uncomfortable seats. No outlets on that particular plane."

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: "Personal, friendly service from the staff. Smooth flight and perfect arrival."

Cons: "I had a seat that had a monitor that was steaming code in front of me for 6 hours. It couldn't even be turned off. The only thing the crew offered was a piece of cardboard to cover it up. "If you download the United app you can pay to stream movies." I hate United and I don't use that word often. I would much rather give praises than complaints. Pay extra for food, entertainment, emergency isle seats... not that the tickets didn't already cost me a fortune. Crew even gave me grief about hanging up my suit!?! I flew to Thailand recently for less than flying to Texas, and everything was included, comfortable, and FRIENDLY. NOT UNITED."

Pros: "We traveled with 4 kids and staff was great to make the flight as comfortable as possible. 787 Dreamliner was awesome"

Cons: "Choppy"

Pros: "Lots of entertainment options and friendly crew."
Cons: "It was just a very long trip, so the seats became uncomfortable after a while."

Cons: "Ko"

Pros: "The crew was very attentive. They offered refreshments when we needed."

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."

Pros: "Flight attendants and pilots were great."
Cons: "The flight would have been great if we flew out of Hailey where there were blue skies and no snow. Instead we got on a bus to Twin Falls with very poor visibility, snow and a bus sliding all over the road. No security check before getting on the bus and no real explanation for being diverted. Our safety definitely wasn't a concern with this airline."

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: "The free entertainment"
Cons: "Seats"

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: "After the 2nd broken plane, they gave everyone $10 food coupon"
Cons: "Three hour delay, two broken planes, but all things considered not too bad."

Cons: "2nd flight missed due to multiple flights from gate 130. No seats close to gate. Speakers not loud enough. Garbled speakers. To much background noise. Very confusing. Was able to rebook later flight but very inconvenient and not optimum. Also plane was too hot. No air circulation."

Cons: "No beverage service, glass of room temp water, no ice"

Pros: "Much better leg room on the upgrade. Thanks for the blanket too."
Cons: "And, on a 5.5 hour flight the flight attendants only came down the aisle one time to offer drinks or snacks. The seat was sort of dumpy, my charger wouldn't stay plugged in and the pocket on the seat in front of me was ripped."

Pros: "Crew was nice. Lots of selection for movies."
Cons: "Drink service was so slow. Literally had to beg for drinks"

Cons: "Bad snacks. Need biscotti"
