Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
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: "Nothing the flight was great and very fast."
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: "The crew members were friendly."
Cons: "Everything. Our plane boarded an hour late. The outdated planes need to be renovated with seatback screens. There weren't even any aisle entertainment screens in this plane. The economy seats are smaller than on other planes we've flown in; my husband could not fit his legs in his own leg area and was miserable the entire flight. And only one small snack for a 6 hour flight?"
Pros: "Very attentative crew"
Cons: "Charging for WiFi"
Pros: "The movie/tv system did not work despite a lot of time trying. Very disappointing when taking a long flight with a 10 year old."
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."
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: "The headrest entertainment terminals are always a good thing."
Cons: "No space to put a small carry-on bag if you spend extra to get legroom."
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: "Excellent friendly crew, was able to get rest on an overnight flight with my wife, good selection of movies."
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: "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."
Cons: "My direct flight was cancelled. My rescheduleday flight was delayed and I missed my connection and had to spend the night in the airport. My 2 1/2 hour flight turned into a 16 hour trip."
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: "Boarding was seamless."
Cons: "Food choices were horrible as was the food quality. Especially for an international flight. AA should be embarrassed that this is the level by which they operate. Entertainment systems were faulty. Many around me had to be restarted. And crew seemed tired and irritated. Willing to overlook the chairs that barely reclined but with everything else operating at a poor level, it was just the icing on the cake."
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"
Pros: "On time, clean plane."
Cons: "Crew announcements are too loud! What is that all about?"
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: "On time."
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"
Cons: "Economy seating legroom could be better for long-haul flight"
Pros: "Crew amazing, space great."
Cons: "Security line"
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"
Cons: "More leg room that you don't have to pay for"
Pros: "Good seats, service, express baggage handling."
Cons: "Why using the oldest plane to fly for a 5 hours flight? Seats are very uncomfortable and the last row doesn’t recline."
Pros: "That I eventually made it home."
Cons: "Flight from Calgary to Denver delayed three and half hours. Informed of this delay thirty minutes before scheduled departure when our plane hadn’t even left Denver yet to head to Calgary. ( 2.5 hr flight) once finally made it to Denver was informed that we missed connecting flight to Boston. We were then informed since it’s for “weather” reasons earlier in the day that caused a sequence of delays they couldn’t accommodate us for hotel. We were given two “blankets” which were as thin as a sheet and each one bottle of water. Some other people around us received good voucherS. We did not. We walked around the airport for close to an hour looking for anyplace we could lay down and sleep. None were to be found. We tried to sleep on the floor but was so cold and uncomfortable I literally got sick to my stomach. Another fun thing added to mix. We were placed on another flight as 6 the next morning. After no sleeping at all we boarded our next flight Which was not a direct flight to Boston but would be from Denver to Newark then Newark to Boston. We were suppose to originally land in Boston at 0600 Monday. Instead we arrived at 1430 after getting zero sleep. My husband and I were also unable to sit together which was extra special for people around me because after not sleeping I continued to be sick to my stomach."
Pros: "Food could be a lot better and healthier."
Cons: "Plane was not overbooked."
Pros: "Cabin crew was very efficient and polite"
Cons: "Baggage folks were not helpful towards anyone. There were a lot of problems and the agents seem to just ignored most everyone."
Cons: "Enjoy the free money, cause I didn't go on my flight. Work had me cancel my vacation a month ago. I tried to cancel, but it wouldn't let me. I tried cancelling through the insurance I purchased on it and they said they couldn't either (even though cancellation was covered in full)."
Pros: "Quick flight, faster than schedule. Flight attendant was good."
Cons: "Absolutely no leg room or arm space in the seats on US express jets. If the flight were longer than an hour it would make for an absolutely miserable experience."
Pros: "Left 5 minutes early and landed 45 minutes early!"
Pros: "The price was unreal so I had to jump on this, I was able to get on and off with my backpack no problem. The flights were good, captains were very communicative about times, expectations and when turbulence was present."
Cons: "The check in had to be done in person because of the need to check my bag size, I felt a little insulted that I would have to be checked on my honesty. When I got to the check in it was like watching a special forces team measuring and prodding peoples bags to get them in to the little box even when the shapes were the reason they couldn't fit, not the size of the bags. I literally watched someone fit their bag and the attendant take it out and make it misshaped for the box and show how it didn't slide in. I had no issues with my luggage, but that sucked to watch happen to others. The food and drinks came about 10 minutes before the plane landed."
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."
Pros: "The pilot"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Great, friendly service! At a wonderful price in my time of need for a flight the next day!"
Cons: "I love that they now have movies to play on ur phone but I two flights and you couldn’t finish you movie due to each plane offering different movies... a little bummed but not awful."
Pros: "In general crew is awsome, the things I didn't like are from the airlines administration."
Cons: "First of all I have to pay for my first bag even If it's an international flight?!?! It was a one and a half hour flight just to cross the border, the ticket cost over $300 and still I get charged for my first suitcase... Second of all, SINCE WHEN PEOPLE HAVE TO PAY TAXES JUST TO BRING THEIR BABY IN THE LAP?!?! C'mon!!!! And the worst, you don't let people now about this so at least we can pay it in advanced since we don't have a choice, but it is anoying that someone leave USA without paying extra just to bring your baby with you and then flying in the same aerline you are not aware you have to pay for him without notice and been inform in advanced. Third and last ... I NEVER GOT MY BOARDING PASS TO PRINT AT HOME by email, either any information or update about my flight...."
Pros: "Nice crew and ground staff. With the right credit card (United Explorer or better) boarding is a snap."
Cons: "Lack of personal space is a fact of life for air travel unless one can afford the good seats. Plus, why do I always sit behind a crying, screaming child? I know it's no fun for anyone involved and it's just part of life, but maybe next time I'll be more fortunate. Flying in economy is truly like riding in a very big Greyhound Bus! It beats driving, but not by much. I wish trains were more plentiful and affordable."
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 was ok."
Cons: "It took a long time to hook up to the jetway once we taxied in to EWR. Pilot even commented that he didn't know what the heck she was doing out there."
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: "Seats comfortable Flights on time Good communication between airline staff and passengers"
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"
Cons: "These stroopwaffels are too sweet."
Cons: "Flight was overbooked"
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: "Crew was nice"
Cons: "The screen was frozen the whole flight."
Pros: "Never took flight"
Cons: "Never took flight"
Pros: "Was able to get on an earlier flight"
Pros: "The crew was fantastic despite the entertainment system wasn't working"
Cons: "The entertainment and wifi was nonfunctional for the 8 hr flight."
Pros: "The crew was very wonderful and did their best to make sure that all of us were taken care of."
Cons: "The seats on United were very packed and for any person larger or taller than 5 foot 5, there was not as much leg room as is usually advertised by United."
Pros: "Price we paid was excellent."
Cons: "It was just my wife and myself and we didn't even get to seat together. They want extra for being able to select your seat in advance. Food was terrible. Seats recline probably 2" at the top of the backrest so no comfort there at all."
Cons: "Lack of snacks"
Pros: "The smooth landing & the kind flight attendants."
Pros: "Arrive on time at each gate"
Cons: "Needed more movies"
Pros: "The crew was very nice and accommodating. Quick boarding process"
Cons: "I downloaded the United app on my iPhone and couldn't use the entertainment option for it. Slightly disappointing."
Cons: "We had a two and half hour wait for the plane and no one could tell me anything"
Pros: "The Qantas agent controlling access to the International Terminal from the Domestic Terminal in Sydney was the best I have ever encountered. Not only did he unravel a very complicated situation created by United, he helped get cell phone to the connecting flight after I left it on first flight. Service on the flight was good and better in Economy than Business First on United."
Cons: "Food selection poor Ran out of one selection Crew forgot to serve our row food until I questioned them"
Cons: "Didn't receive my carry-on when arrived in ELP. Finally got it the next day."
Pros: "We left Chicago very late. The plane had not been fueled before boarding. We waited what seemed like an eternity. while the pilot apologized repeatedly it was still ridiculous to have to wait that long for the plane to be refueled when it should have been done before boarding."
