Use a plane other than th"

Pros: "haagan daz chocolate ice cream was a surprise"
Cons: "the rice with fish didn’t taste that nice and the veggy was a bit overcooked"

Pros: "Nil"
Cons: "A very old product in the CX fleet. The old exonomy seat is terrible. Service was not attentive. Entertainment system was not responsive. CX is definitely going downhill."

Pros: "Good crew, new plane, Ok food, good drinks"
Cons: "The seats are really uncomfortable"

Pros: "Good seat - request granted"
Cons: "They gave menu only to find out they ran out of what I wanted. Don’t even show or hand out menu so passengers won’t expect."

Pros: "Ground staff was organized, efficient and polite. Breakfast in economy was very good and flavorful."
Cons: "Flight attendants were efficient; but not particularly friendly. No offer of water in t the middle of a long flight."

Cons: "The a330 is showing its age and the food on board was not good. Otherwise it would have been an excellent flight"

Pros: "On time. Got an isle seat."

Cons: "No extra blanket was available."

Pros: "Nothing much. Travelling in economy class for long flights is always a miserable experience. I can't afford to fly business and I am compelled to travel due to personal reasons"
Cons: "With the new security rules for flights to the US, they took my water bottle at the gate during boarding. I was dehydrated during the whole flight. The small cup of water they give during the flight is not enough for me."

Pros: "Little more leg room!"

Pros: "Friendly & mature"
Cons: "Foods"

Cons: "Continues to be incinsistent and spotty service."

Pros: "Great staff and food"
Cons: "Flight arrived from SFO 15 min late, and airline cancelled numerous connecting flights to various cities, including mine to Hanoi from Hong Kong. Offered to rebook 10hr later with 40 HK food credit. Happened to my uncle and cousins 1 month earlier on exact same legs. Would not recommend any layover with this airline in hong Kong for less than an hour. Numerous phone calls from me to sort this out, which resulted on another carrier to Hanoi."

Cons: "Overall waiting and long flight."

Pros: "Great crew, great service"
Cons: "Could use a greater reclining angle in economy."

Pros: "Fast and on time"

Cons: "When the crew in the terminal begins moving the economy class passengers in the aircraft its all a mess. Passengers with seats in the front and the middle are blocking the hallway of the aircraft which force the passengers with seats at the end waiting with a long line.The Cathay flight from NY to HKG handle in a much better manner. They let the passengers with seats at the end go in the aircraft first so that these passengers will never blocking the hallway or making any long line.Hope the flight to New York can improve in this aspect."

Pros: "The crew is nice. You can order snacks in between meals."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and we were automatically placed on another EARLIER flight and we weren't notified. I found out the morning of our original flight, as our new flight was about to board. I still haven't figured out who was responsible for this snafu - the airline or Webjet.com. Webjet customer service was horrible and offensive when I tried to explain to them what happened; they said it was my responsibility to check the time. I would disagree - the customer is ultimately supposed to get an email notifying them of the flight change, giving them options. Based on that phone call with Webjet, I will NEVER do business with them again. As for the flight cancellation issue - if Kayak could help me get to the bottom of this, that would be appreciated."

Pros: "Mostly the amazing staff on the airplane... I'm pregnant and the staff at JFK were very unpleasant and rude."
Cons: "Staff and tsa at JFK"

Cons: "None"

Pros: "Staff were friendly and helpful"
Cons: "The food was atrocious and this was business class. The toilet lights were so dimmed all the time you couldn't see what was going on. Last year we flew business class Cathay pacific from Hong Kong to Melbourne and loved it. This year we decided to fly from Melbourne to Dusseldorf and then from Frankfurt to Melbourne with this airline. Won't be doing that again. Why pay business class fares to be disapointed"

Pros: "Travelling with a 1 yr old, the extra leg room and space in the bassinet seats was appreciated. Service and help from staff was outstanding. Recommend for travelling with young children. Minimises the pain!"
Cons: "We were late leaving HK but that is all. Minor in overall scheme of the journey."

Cons: "Those economy seats can only fit a child comfortably."

Pros: "Quiet, warm water in bathroom sink. Movies"

Pros: "Crew were super friendly. Food was pretty good for airline food."
Cons: "Bag drop in Melbourne was poor - it took close to an hour just to drop bags. Flight was very busy. While food/drink was good, it did take quite a while to be served."

Pros: "Boarding was a bit of a free-for-all even though they called specific rows. Still, it went fast and everything else was fine. Seats were as comfortable as can be expected for economy. Food was pretty good, entertainment was great and the crew was polite and helpful."

Pros: "This plane was an Airbus 350. Seems to be the lated Airbus model. Business class section very much like the Boing 777, maybe a little better in some design modification of the seats."
Cons: "Difficult transit at the very large Hong Kong airport. Too much walking to got to document control to enter and leave Hong Kong."

Pros: "Belle and Rainbow were great hostesses"

Cons: "I didn't like the Hindu meal that was offered to me but other then that everything was next to perfect ."

Cons: "The seats were broken - did not stay reclined. Also the seat pocket had gaping holes in them - couldn't place anything properly."

Pros: "The people were great! And it was a smooth ride."
Cons: "The seats are very uncomfortable. I could not get comfortable and my tailbone just ached. I tried sitting on a pillow, but that did not help. And the cabin was too cold for me."

Cons: "The ticketing experience almost cost me missing my connection. I did not get my con# or my second boarding pass so after customs I was forced to go back out and wait for a bus to get to a different terminal. I waited 30 min. Very poor handling."

Pros: "Liked that I was heading to Fiji for some nice vacation"
Cons: "A lot could have been better, the crew and captain didn’t know the immigration procedures for the United States, both flights late. Then also entertainment was quite lacking on a 7 hour international flight."

Pros: "The crew was great. Food was good."
Cons: "They SERIOUSLY need to update the entertainment on the plane. If everyone has to watch the same movie, which prehistoric in itself, can they at least make a recent movie and not one from the 80's??? They played 2 movies, both from the 80's!"

Pros: "Crew and comfort"
Cons: "Entertainment & Meal"

Pros: "Crew was amazing!"
Cons: "Checkin and gate crew were amazing! It was hard to hear the announcement on the intercom in Apia. Too sound was not clear and precise."

Pros: "Helpful crew, good food, professional"
Cons: "FREEZING COLD cabin air temperature, as other reviewers have noted. Despite otherwise comfortable conditions to sleep, this made it impossible to get a good night's sleep."

Pros: "Crew, food, drinks."
Cons: "More in flight entertainment options like movies to choose from."

Pros: "The crew were welcoming, friendly, and accommodating."
Cons: "The plane is old and had no screens, so there was no entertainment option."

Pros: "Some crew members are excellent and some are flat."
Cons: "Food is kind of bad"

Pros: "Pillow and blanket provided!"
Cons: "Flight attendants spoke very loudly during times when most passengers were sleeping, waking everyone around. A personal water bottle would have been nice."

Pros: "Poor service in business class Low quality food Asked for dessert didn’t get it"
Cons: "Poor service in business class Low quality food Asked for dessert didn’t get it Clear sign of no competition on this route"

Pros: "Friendly crew. Cloth seats were pretty comfortable with adjustable wings on sides of headrest. Movies were mostly older and good PG at worst."
Cons: "Cloth seats were pretty comfortable with adjustable wings on sides of headrest BUT very cramped in Basic Economy. I’m short and couldn’t even put my seat back for entire 11 hours because man behind me was so tall. Meals did not include any salad but did have small amount of veggies."

Cons: "Good flight"

Pros: "Comfort was decent."
Cons: "Late due to crew."

Pros: "Can't beat that. Bigger seat, better leg room, comfortable seats."
Cons: "None."

Pros: "Great food and drink..complimentary on Fiji Airlines. Economy class seats are bigger than all US airlines!"
Cons: "Late to board d in Fiji due to ‘ operational’ reasons? Late arrival into Honolulu. But overall good flight"

Pros: "crew very helpful"
Cons: "larger meal would be niice"

Pros: "I traveled with my 4 children and my husband. Out of Honolulu the flight is scheduled very late so i had extemely exhausted children. The gate agents were so very helpful and so compassionate, especially because my 4 month old baby was crying. They stepped up and helped me with my other kids as my husband was out looking for water to make a bottle for him. Awesome awesome service! The crew was very nice and helpful when we were all sleeping. Did not bother us once and they let us sleep. Unfortunately I did not try their food service but my husband said it was delicious. The only thing was that they only offered a couple of movies via some small screen at the ceiling of plane making it hard for my 5 yo daughter to watch anything ultimately relying on their tablets which dies early. Overall, from check in to touch down, it was a very pleasant flight! Oh! And the blankets were so soft!!"

Pros: "Excellent service, excellent food"
Cons: "Very limited leg room"

Pros: "Very comfortable and the pilot landed the plane perfectly in bad weather! Thank y'all Fiji Airways!"

Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Despite buying my ticket with virgin and being a platinum Fiji air tried to charge me $300 for an extra bag."

Pros: "Nice food."
Cons: "Planes feel not well maintained, no electric outlets, not enough screens..."

Pros: "Loved the soft good quality complintary blankets they had available for us on every seat as well as pillow. Really made it feel homey and comfortable. Probably the best airline meal I’ve had. It was like a creamy mushroom chicken with mashed potatoes, cheese wedge, crackers, etc."
Cons: "The luggage weight limitation on carry-on bags"

Cons: "The seat were not that comfortable!"

Pros: "This flight was cancelled due to storms in the Pacific. Fiji Airways put passengers into a hotel and paid for meals."
Cons: "Fiji Airways had poor communication with us about our onward flights, causing us to wonder what was going on. In the end, we were scheduled through another airline 3 days after our flight was scheduled to leave."

Cons: "When I landed in LA after my trip I was sad to find that my suitcase was broken into and item bought were taken."

Pros: "Aircraft was comfortable."
Cons: "The stranded in Apia."

Pros: "Nothing to like."
Cons: "Cancelled the flight going to Christmas Island and wouldn’t reschedule until the following week. Trip that was planned for almost 2 years never happened. At least they could have tried the following day but I guess it was a financial decision and not one made with customer service in mind. I would never fly on them except they’re the only game in town to reach Kiribati."

Cons: "The flight was cancelled which ruined the trip for myself and seven friends."

Pros: "Previously took 4 other Air NZ flights on this trip and loved them - great entertainment, very pleasant and helpful crew. The long flight from Fiji back to the US was partnered with Air Fiji and it was just a bit above average compared to our typical experience with Air NZ. The boarding experience was really good and much more organized than most airlines, which was nice. Plenty of bathrooms available, they came around with water frequently, which is a must on these long flghts, and every seat had their own screen for entertainment, which is very nice."
Cons: "Seats were not very comfortable, not much leg room especially for such a long red eye. Movie and TV selection was limited compared to typical Air NZ flights. Half the crew was somewhat unpleasant and overlooked passengers trying to give them trash and even charitable contributions when they were going around collecting specifically those things. (The other half of the crew was the more typically amazing, customer oriented attitude.) Not sure if Air Fiji just over works its crew or what, but it was not as pleasant. The food was also back to typical just ok airplane food, not normal for Air NZ which has great food and lots of it. We also were not able to pick our seats for this flight, which was not ideal for comfort or location."

Pros: "Foods"
Cons: "Poor communications between crews and passengers"

Pros: "Food was really good not many airline offer free meal"
Cons: "Forms and then again on computer"

Cons: "They lost our luggage and did not compensate us enough to replace what we needed"

Pros: "Except entertainment and comfort i did not like an thing else."
Cons: "Very bad food for those who are strict veterinarian and even don't eat onion, garlic, mushroom because their religion dose not allow. very bad for one who is going to LA and allow only one hand carry even all other airlines allow one hand carry and one computer bag."

Pros: "Smoorth landing, great staff, meals, checked bag"
Cons: "Crowded by fellow psger who left tv on all night and tapped feet for the full flight"

Pros: "IT was a quick flight."
Cons: "People always used my the way at my comfort seat to shortn there way...so it wasnt really comfortable. The Crew seemed really stressed."

Pros: "Good movie selection. Cozy blankets (I'd love to buy one). Overall nice facilities. Smooth flight most of the way through."
Cons: "The flight was unusually warm. Other passengers asked the A/C be turned up but I didn't notice much difference after. The food selection was poor compared to the usual offerings I've seen with Fiji Airways. Dinner's side dishes were a hard roll, chocolate coconut dessert thing, and slice of cake. I was hoping for fruit and/or a salad. Food service was a little slow."

Pros: "Flight attendants were terrific, nice to be able to drink and eat with no worries after a week in Christmas Island."
Cons: "I would Jhabvala liked to have a choice of seats in a plane that was not full. Some people had a whole row while others were full."

Pros: "Service provided was nothing less than desirable! They were great!"
Cons: "Boarding but that was due to the passengers. They don't listen"

Cons: "Also missed this flight."

Cons: "Missed the flight! I find it ridiculous you do not get a "Check In Online" email from Fiji Airways if you do not book directly through them. That, to me, is insane. All Fiji Airways passengers, whether they booked directly or not, should get that email."

Pros: "Good food, good service, efficient boarding. B737-800 in economy can be cramped but thats a given on any airline. Full service flight, will fly again"

Pros: "Flight canceled. Fiji airways told us we would be booked on Qantas instead but the flight wouldn't give us time to make the connection. Ended up flying later,, longer and much more uncomfortable than expected. F Had to take separate seats from family and middle seats, had to spend entire day in Sydney which required us to spend money on a visa and money to eat, had additional stress of then arriving too late and needing to rebook rental car and arranged hotel and make sure elederly parents with special needs were ok health wise. An overall disaster. Never ever a worse experience and I am a world traveler to 68 countries on 6 continents. Will be asking Fiji for full refund plus compensation for having to buy visas and spend day in Sydney."

Cons: "Flight was delayed 2 hours."

Pros: "Flight on time"
Cons: "Better food"

Pros: "service and food"

Pros: "You ripped me off"
Cons: "you ripped me off"

Pros: "excellent check in, they accommodated me despite my late arrival due to traffic from an airport transfer from another terminal"

Pros: "The crew was good and professional. Friendly."

Pros: "This time I didn’t have to go into the corral till close to boarding I still can’t believe you cannot bring bottles of water from vendors to bring on the plane if it was allowed I wouldn’t have to keep calling the crew to bring water.. after second request the crew knew I wanted water... flight late"
Cons: "Allow bottled water on the plane ... or at least sealed bottled water!!"

Cons: "Food and service. Seat comfort."

Pros: "Crew was very caring and service was excellent."
Cons: "The security agents at the boarding gate was rude and juvenile. I’m not happy to have to walk on my socks to get my shoes after a hand search. I don’t mind the search; I do mind the lack of assistance in retrieving my hand carry and shoes."

Pros: "The plane is new and clean"
Cons: "If the flight was on time. The flight was delayed which resulted on missing my connecting fllight to Denver. I have to stay and wait at the San Francisco airport for 19 hours"

Cons: "Outstanding flight to Hawaii."

Pros: "Horrible airline."
Cons: "tiny seats for tiny people, crappy food, cold in the jet, Really a low class airline."

Pros: "The flight was faster than going to Philippines and movies is convenient"
Cons: "when you ask for extra food coz youre hungry but crew tells you wait"

Pros: "Always great service on pal flights"

Pros: "On time flight"
Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Good selection of movies."
Cons: "Late, late, PAL is always late. First we were late by two hours; then boarding was delayed by one hour after that; then we sat on the tarmac for two more hours. Literally my dad had almost finished watching his first plane movie before we were able to takeoff. Fortunately our flight wasn't cancelled, but we missed not one but TWO connecting flights because it was so late. Also, MNL is a terrible airport. What is the logic in needing to pass through THREE sets of metal detectors and x-ray machines before boarding?"

Cons: "Slow checking and too much time to wait"

Pros: "Flight was relatively smooth. Take-off and landing likewise."
Cons: "The barbecue chicken supposedly from Aristocrat was served with hardly any sauce so it was dry and needless to say, disappointing..I just ate it just to fill up my stomach. I was looking for the music selections in the inflight magazine to help me choose the station but didn't see anything listed. The aisle of the Airbus 320 is quite narrow so it is difficult to pass the aisle w/out bumping into seats."

Pros: "Flight was fine and food was adequate."
Cons: "No entertainment options for the three and a half hour flight. No tv or music available. Arrived in Bali 12:40 am. Very early and wasted hotel cost for arrival time."

Pros: "The flights themselves were good and the crew members were attentive to requests."
Cons: "The worst part was my departure flight was delayed a full 24 hours due to the airline combining two flights to ensure max capacity on board. No concessions were given and unfortunately I lost out on a whole day of my vacation, so beware if you book on Phillipine Airlines, you may not receive the flight dates which were originally booked."

Pros: "The staff was very helpful especially because I flew with my 5 month old son. They were very nice. The seat had enough space."
Cons: "The food was ok but could do better."

Pros: "Great service."

Pros: "Great experuance. Caring staff"
Cons: "Nothing"

Cons: "Landing lan"

Pros: "Great service Super friendly crew"

Pros: "The service on the flight was superb."

Pros: "Im tall so as usual the leg room was difficult but that is every flight im on"

Pros: "The FAs were just great: friendly, accommodating, professional, and assertive in the right way. Good job on the training!"
Cons: "The check-in counter line was long because they scheduled multiple international flights within an hour of each other."

Pros: "I was very lucky to have two spaces beside me so plenty of room however I know this is not always the case. This plaine was modern with a good selection of inflight entertainment. The on board staff were extreamly courteous and helpful. Food was okay was a good selection of beverages on this flight. You are provided with inlight comforts like blackets etc if you wished to sleep -"
Cons: "No complaints on this flight"

Cons: "Delay boarding at jfk"

Pros: "In-flight entertainment movies"
Cons: "Sitting too close to other passenger"

Pros: "Both the flights were high quality and easy."
Cons: "The 13 hour layover in Manila was terrible. Philippine airlines has one room with very few good places to sleep. That night of sleep was really uncomfortable and staying in one room for so long drove us crazy."

Pros: "Clean"

Pros: "Everything"

Pros: "Overall a very nice flight. Crew was helpful when asked to assist and provide additional beverages."
Cons: "Food was pretty awful. Needed more beverage service throughout the flight, just water would have been fine. Shouldn't have to constantly ask for water, the crew should pick up on the need and respond to it."

Pros: "Plane from HNL to MNL is brand new with free entertainment in every headrest. Crew was pleasant and helpful, came by with water often."
Cons: "Food on return flight was terrible. Got stuck with pork selection for first meal, which was extremely fatty. Second meal, pork again, with eggs. Completely inedible. Disgusting, and Im not a very picky eater."

Pros: "Smooth journey"

Pros: "Nothing..... I guess once the plane arrived, things worked normally"
Cons: "8 hour delay"

Pros: "It landed safely."
Cons: "It was an hour late leaving Hawaii THAT'S NOT GOOD! And they refused to let me use a 'foot locker' piece of luggage that has been accepted by MANY different airlines and has flown all over the world many times except on this flight and this company. They made me buy a $10 box and transfer everything into it. Then I tossed my foot locker piece of luggage in the trash bin. They were very uncooperative and petty."

Cons: "Why are there so many security lines to go through. Before going to the check in counter there's a security line; at the immigration there's a security line which I believe is required there; then at the gate there's a security line. There are just too many security lines to go through"

Pros: "Flight was on time..staff was courteous"
Cons: "Good was ok"

Cons: "Like all four of my flights on Philippines Airlines, over 3 hour delay. They could not leave on time on any flights, over head speaker in terminal was just constant flight being delayed-significantly. Hawaii to Manila and back, you had to down load an app onto your phone prior to leaving for any in flight entertainment, on your phone only. Terrible food. This was my worst flying experience ever and I do 4 international trips a year. Save time and money, fly another airline even if it means a connecting flight, you will still get there quicker. Pathetic."

Pros: "The service is good. Typical Philippine airlines, friendly service."
Cons: "I don't like the iPad entertainment. I prefer seat mounted screens. The chairs are too cramped as well. Boarding was a bit slow and the waiting area was so cramped."

Pros: "Food, gift pack, in-flight wi-fi based entertainment."
Cons: "Seating a little bit cramped in coach."

Cons: "It was fine."

Pros: "Their website would not let us manage our booking, ie. change seats or pay for additional luggage. Thus incurring larger fees at airport. Customer Service at airport was worthless and condescending at best!"

Pros: "The ground crew were extremely helpful and friendly. The airport in Manila is not very good, but that's not PA's fault."
Cons: "Seats are a bit small and the WIFI both in the aircraft and in the airport was horrible."

Pros: "Good service. Comfortable."
Cons: "Every flight from Manila to Honolulu was delayed at least 1 hour."

Cons: "For the ticket price- I think that it would be nice to have more comfortable seats as the flight is a long one and it would also be nice if the crew make their rounds to check on the passengers and ask if they are comfortable"

Pros: "flight attendants service was excellent."
Cons: "DELAYED FLIGHT"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything. 6 hr delay, unhelpful clueless staff, food, comfort of seats, lack of entertainment, crappy terminal in Manila"

Pros: "Had an exit row seat, 17D. Lots of leg room."

Pros: "Seats were okay, even with an upgrade, still tight and I'm only 5'3". Drinks and snacks were served so plan ahead for food to Hawaii. Otherwise, I feel like there staff was great and doing their best to make everyone safe and respected."
Cons: "Very little seating at Phoenix airport."

Cons: "When there isn’t a person assigned to the emergency exit row and you offer your service and the flight attendant says you need to pay for it. Seriously there a deadly flu and the fight attendant is concerned about the price difference and not making sure there is social distance. Tons of empty seats and they never offered for anyone to switch"

Cons: "Honestly, I think it was a great flight. I’m used to rude flight attendants, but this crew were great. Probably some of the best flight service I’ve had. I’m going to try to keep flying AA from now on."

Pros: "Good seat. Good movies."
Cons: "A better range of free food choices would be nice."

Cons: "In flight entertainment was broken"

Pros: "One of the crew members seemed to have a chip on his shoulder. Most other were nice."

Cons: "No wifi or entertainment was available. Food was mediocre."

Pros: "The seat? Very uncomfortable"
Cons: "The seat for the longest flight could be more comfortable"

Pros: "I love the inflight entertainment"

Cons: "Half of the screens were down. No Gluten free options."

Pros: "M"

Pros: "In first class, what’s not to love"

Pros: "Fast boarding"
Cons: "No WiFi at all on the plane. Entertainment was only their station on screens on the barriers. As often happens with American First Class staff, they did the requirements in the same way service is better at chipotle than Taco Bell. Interior plane noise was very loud. Must be the last year on lease"

Pros: "Good entertainment"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 3+ hours due to no qualified pilots available to fly to HNL"

Pros: "All the service was good"
Cons: "I am handicapped and there was no attendance at the gate once I arrive in Honolulu, no wheelchair assist to help me to the baggage terminal."

Pros: "The crew at the check in counter were very help and just outright awesome. Having missed my flight they were kind enough to find a seat for me on another flight. So I say Weldone to them"
Cons: "As I am tall the seats especially the middle seat was a nightmare espcially when people pullback their seats back. need more space to stretch your legs on long flights"

Pros: "Great service and fantastic landing!!"

Pros: "We arrived to LAX at the same scheduled time and the pilots were very informative when we might have turbulence."
Cons: "Head phone jack was broken, was told by one attendant that they would fix it. He never came back, told someone else and they said sorry, there was an open seat 6 rows back. Was not going to have my son sitting by himself. Knowing that you have to check many things prior to the flight, maybe have a back up plan for something like this."

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Had to Deplane 3 hour delay. No compensation no offerings no nothing."

Pros: "Friendly CREW"
Cons: "No upgrade london - Miami"

Cons: "Not enough time in London to change planes. We missed the flight"

Pros: "Great vegetarian meal."

Pros: "Quick, efficient"
Cons: "No food."

Cons: "Rude gate agents who did not inform passengers timely about the 2.5 hours delay. Post the delay after the expected departure time, etc. Terrible experience."

Pros: "Beautiful new Boeing 777, comfortable seats. Smooth flight. Skillful landing. No delays."
Cons: "Nothing to eat - one cookie!"

Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Rude customer"

Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"

Pros: "The crew on American Airlines flight #109 from LAX to HNL was excellent!"

Pros: "There were charging ports for every seat."
Cons: "The flight crew kept going onto the intercom for no reason. Every ten minutes or so someone would get on just to hold the button and let go or say enjoy your flight. Also, there was no food and didn't ask for anyone to board before zone 1, including us service members"

Pros: "Crew was pleasant and responsive."

Pros: "Great crew and on time"
Cons: "Arrival G14; Departure H18 with only 35 minute layover, a really loooong walk at speed. Need tunnel from G to H or moving walkways or a "train.""

Pros: "Good Hospitality"
Cons: "insuffecient supply of juices etc"

Cons: "Rude American Airlines staff. Flight delay of more than 7 hours. No accommodation given. One of the dirtiest airplane and traveling vehicle ever flown."

Pros: "The food"
Cons: "The smell of the bathroom"

Pros: "Personal service and care by the ticketing to seat our family together"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "My flight was delayed leaving Ft Myers because of weather in Dallas. I got to Dallas and went to my connecting flight and was told I didn't have a seat anymore. No reason given, they just said you don't have a seat anymore and I'd have to take another flight. Complete garbage."

Cons: "on a 7 hour flight over the pacific ocean and you dont provide a meal? you fly from egypt to germany, a 3 hour flight and you get a meal, so what's your excuse?"

Pros: "Liked that the restroom was near by (9E). Liked that there was the option of watching a movie."
Cons: "Didn't care for the choice of shows/movie on monitors. I paid for an upgrade for row 9 - and was unfortunately seated next to a very large man, which meant that there was no escaping the fact that our arms or legs touched. Obviously an older plane, because there were no outlets (again, paid for upgraded seats). Previous flight was WAY better and I was in the regular seat."

Pros: "The onboard entertainment options were great."
Cons: "I don't understand advertising an outlet at every seat and not providing converters from the European outlets on an American domestic flight."

Cons: "Food was bad and crew never ask for food to economy passengers for long hour flight meal plan was not working I felt hungry and ac was too cold for all the time nothing good entertainment movies for different languages and no providing small personal hygiene kits for long flight"

Pros: "Good food-ample space"
Cons: "Tv didnt work for 3+ hours took 4 attendants to restart it."

Pros: "On time."
Cons: "The door team was all over the place creating a chaos at the time for boarding the plain. I've notice several people in front of me were complaining due to the boarding dynamics. (Not smooth boarding)"

Pros: "Small snack and drink included. Free checked bags."
Cons: "Very few drink choices. Flight was cancelled mid-air, so we were returned from the air above Cusco to the Lima airport where there were no other flights departing that evening and no compensation for the inconvencience (no hostel voucher, no upgraded tickets on our next flight, etc). Many people ended up missing their long-planned trip to Machu Picchu as the earliest Avianca could get anyone to Cusco was 11:00 the following morning. The staff was unhelpful, and the lines were incredibly long (about 3 hours). Funnily enough, we were supposed to be on an earlier flight, but due to the length of their check in line, we waited over a half hour in line and when we arrived at the desk 56 minutes before our flight, we were unable to check in (since check in stops an hour before the flight). Truly ridiculous. I will definitely think twice before ever booking an Avianca flight in the future."

Pros: "Missed a previous connecting flight due to delays, but staff was able to get me on a next flight out, two hours later."

Pros: "It was empty and there was a lot of room. It was nice and quiet. They still served snacks and drinks. Can't complain!"

Pros: "The staff were amazing. Very accommodating and with great dispositions. Boarding was easy."
Cons: "For an international flight the seats were extremely tiny and the plane itself only had a few tv screens posted in the middle of the plane so everyone had to watch the same thing."

Pros: "We arrived safe. Although 1 1/2 hours late because of weather Nothing else was good."
Cons: "The plane has no space. No food. No entertainment It's let's crame as many people in the space. There Seats don't recline. And it's very uncomfortable. You Changed planes on us after we had assigned seats So we weren't in the seats we wanted. Poor customer Service on kayak part."
