Cons: "I was on a nut free diet However they still gave me a ice cream covered in macadamia nuts. Nut free meals were also gluten, vegan etc so very bland"

Pros: "Great crew But... Many wild children, loud babies. I was in seat with extra leg room so I had no space for my purse & carry on and had to store in overhead bin. After take off, I retrieved my purse & carry on to get my glasses and purse. The flight attendant gave my bin space away to someone..."
Cons: "See above... Who didn't upgrade their seat. My items had to go into bin 3 rows back. Very inconvenient & very difficult to retrieve after landing. I will never pay the additional fee for extra leg room again."

Cons: "Having a reservation on Alaska for the first leg of the trip would have been nice. They didn't expect us, we had no confirmation number that Alaska recognized so we were denied boarding. How much else could have gone wrong?"

Cons: "The entertainment system was soooo old. In our seats it was non-functional. The plane wasn't too full and so I scooted over to the isle seat next to mine but again the resolution on the screen was so bad I couldn't read the intro comments to the movie, etc. They desperately need to update the entertainment system on that plane."

Pros: "Boarding was better handled in Singapore - but then that’s Singapore! All very smooth and French champagne served on the flight all the way home! The Kayak website is excellent and I wouldn’t hesitate to use it again - $1,000 cheaper for the flight from Moscow to Singapore than what I could get direct from Singapore Airlines! Well done Kayak!"

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Again friendly and efficient staff and a smooth flight. Best features of Singapore Airlines."
Cons: "The business class seats were smaller than I thought and not so comfortable as the 777. The seats are hard and ungiving and when you sleep on them you really feel it. Plus the flatbed lay out meant you were basically lying in a question mark position, not so goof for tall people like my husband. The food was good but uninteresting and I think for an overnight flight there should be more smaller,lighter, non spicy options offered rather that full dinners."

Cons: "When refreshments were being served they did so in a hurry for some reason and missed passengers including myself. We had to call for an attendant to serve the refreshments who seemed a little annoyed at that."

Pros: "Loved the food/Movies/seats."
Cons: "No air vents and the cabin was very very stuffy and warm for many people. I’ve never heard one child cry for 7+ hours before until this flight. But everything else was decent to say the very least:)"

Pros: "The crew were lovely - friendly and polite!"
Cons: "The delayed departure- but I truly understand that it was beyond the control of the company as the delay was weather related."

Pros: "Agents went above and beyond to help. Wish I had names because I was REAL impressed at how much they helped to get our bags checked.

When I checked in on line I was not notified that I should buy the checked backs online so assumed one bag each was free. Instead we were charged $nz120. This is not acceptable and I would like a refund. Please help on this request. Thank you."

Pros: "The regional flights are nice and quick with no frills or complications. Everyone is in one cabin and you can quickly board using kiosks at the gate."
Cons: "You might want to bring a book on this flight or something as their in-flight video and adverts are all you'll really see in terms of entertainment."

Cons: "We were late arriving, the cabin crew although they were pleasant, didn’t do enough to allow the passengers to get off first, for the connecting flight. Malaysian airlines stayed in the runway, fixing an engine and the pilot said they were delaying the plane, driving in for passengers to disembark. After being told by cabin crew that a number of us were late for connecting flight, that they were going to wait for us, they didn’t and we were told we had missed the flight. We were kindly put on the next flight which wasn’t until five hours later. Unrealistic scheduling causes is to miss our flight and had us sitting at the airport for four hours, making it an unnecessarily long day. Not impressed."

Pros: "Legroom"
Cons: "Late"

Cons: "Bathroom did not work, food was not so tasty"

Pros: "Crew were friendly"

Pros: "Cabin crew was fantastic! Inflight experience was woderful."
Cons: "Airport personnel were very unhelpful. When I asked them a question, they told me to come back later. I came back at the time they said to and they told me they don’t have time for me. I need to come back another time. I went to another gate agent and she told be to go downstairs to the check in counter for help. That would have taken 2 hours. I called customer service and they answered my question quickly. I just wanted to know if I would be charged a fee to change my flight."

Pros: "nil"
Cons: "nil"

Pros: "Friendly and helpful staff"
Cons: "No WiFi or outlets on aircraft"

Pros: "Friendly quality staff, good aircraft."

Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "A380s are good aircraft. Emirates entertainment is second to none ."
Cons: "I'm the first leg 777 aircraft sat towards the back and my window seat was smaller than most seats. I had 1 hour 25 minutes connection in Dubai . But it was a VERY. Long walk from C3 to B14 . By the time for of the plane and reached my connecting gate t8gey were already boarding . Dubai is too big"

Cons: "Food is ok but can be improved."

Pros: "I really liked the leg spacing. It was very comfortable to stretch my legs. Overall it was good. Thank you :)"
Cons: "I felt a little bit more of the nibbles could be included in the 8+ hours flight. Besides that everything was comfortable. Also, the entertainment options can be better."

Cons: "Older plane less entertainment options"

Cons: "Caused me a 20+ hour layover in dubai in a horrible hotel"

Pros: "The crew was very attentive and patient inspite of the flight being full."
Cons: "The boarding at DBX was chaotic. It was disorganized and not executed properly - boarding was not done by priority or by zone in the begininng. Unaccompanied minors were boarded at the end, they should have been boarded first and their cabin baggage take care of first. The quality of food is average ... it used to be much better. No alcohol was served in the flight; was not provided even after requesting one; didn't bother to ask again. The choice of movies were limited"

Pros: "Information from the captain"

Pros: "Although a short trip it was a great experience especially the bar The seat setup is very good and facilities cannot be faulted."

Pros: "The in flight crew was friendly and helpful."
Cons: "The seat I have 41A is quite awkward, especially when 41B was a plus size person. The slanting profile of the wall also made it quite claustrophobic. But overall endurance."

Pros: "Could not fault the staff one iota. Incredibly attentive to their customers, graceful and supportive. The supervisor get a special mention as he helped me with eating my meals with a sleeping toddler and even held her for me while I spent a penny. I have never felt more cared for by a group of complete strangers in my life! Thank you. You literally saved my sanity!"
Cons: "Nothing to fault at all on this flight. Food was great, staff were hard working and magical unicorns."

Pros: "Nothing comfort level very low. Very poor service. Looks like how to make more money by robbing customers"
Cons: "Bought the ticket from internet after paying found baggage allowance only 20kg tried to contact airline additional 10 kg luggage price was more than the price of ticket. Seating was awfully I am 6'3" did not fit in middle seat requested several times for isle seat my legs were sticking out each time I have to get up to let pass the passengers and staff safety hazard. Have to pay additional 70 pounds sterling for under 3kg."

Pros: "Good as usual"
Cons: "Nothing I can think of"

Cons: "Before I start my complaint I would like to say that my family and I had 6 emirates flights this year and 5 of those flights were very good and we thoroughly enjoyed our traveling with emirates but this 1 flight came out to be the worse flight of my life. I made online check-in and chose our seats and all was successful but when we reached the airport and I opened my app, it displayed that online boarding pass was not available. After moving slowly in a long queue, when I reached near boarding counters, an official checked my name in a list and informed that there was some new tax applied on us and thus I had to visit counter 5 or 6 to pay that tax. We joined the queue of counter 5 but it was not moving at all and I noticed some people being served at counter 5 who were not in the queue, thinking that counter 5 might take longer, I joined counter 6 queue where there were only 1 family and 1 passenger ahead of me, for next half hour we stood there but that queue didn't move. Finally after some time another counter called me, he confirmed that I had made online check-in. We were given boarding passes and were asked to wait for tax processing, After another 15min, we were given all papers and were requested to move to the immigration counter. After immigration when we were going through final security check, the emirates official asked me to hurry up, I showed him that the security process was going on in front of him, upon that he asked why I was late to airport, I informed him that I made online check-in and I was required to be there 90min before the flight but I was there 150min before the flight and it was in front of him how long the tax processing took, upon that he said that I should have been at the boarding counter 240min before the flight and that I should be aware of the facilities at the airport (although it was my 1st time there). I had not made any complaint on what had happened so far to anyone and I was not rude to anyone although I was with my wife and 1.5 years old son who was crying coz of warn weather and thirst, we couldn't provide him with water coz we were standing in queues all the time. But hearing such comments from Emirates official were quite unbearable but still I stayed calm and reached at the gate. When I handed over the boarding passes, I was told that my boarding pass was missing and I was quickly blamed by emirates officials that either I reached there without a boarding pass or I had lost it. When they checked in their system it showed that I was already boarded, I understood that they gave my boarding pass to someone else but they kept on saying that I had lost it and also informed the same to plane crew, then they made a manual boarding pass for me and let me pass the gate. We were the last passengers to enter the plane. When I reached at my seat, there was someone else sitting there, upon taking attendant's help, it was discovered that the passenger sitting there had my boarding pass."

Pros: "Emirates leg was good. Easy checkin and I think slightly large than usual seats."
Cons: "I bought a return from Emirates with the returning flight from Australia to London as a code share with Qantas. Qantas does not honour the e-ticekts from Emirates and will NOT allow you to preselect seats online. You have to hope for a good seat at airport checkin. Too bad, as I would have been prepared to pay extra for a seat upgrade."

Pros: "Ease of checkin"

Pros: "Everything."

Pros: "awosam"

Pros: "Staff did their best and were polite but ultimately had no solution for the issue"
Cons: "I was unable to get an aisle seat therefore I was stuck in an middle seat. I am rather tall and the man on the window seat was morbidly obese and half of him was sitting on top of me for most of the flight. He also sweated all over me, snoredand snorted for the whole flight. I spent much of the flight standing and now have terrible leg oedema. It was the most uncomfortable flight I've ever been on. the flight was full so there were no reseating options apparently. It was extremely unpleasant."

Cons: "The food is same"

Cons: "everything"

Pros: "La atención excelente. La comida muy buena. El abordaje y la entrega de equipajes a tiempo."

Cons: "14 hours connection time and they don't offer hotel/meal accommodation that airlines like Qatar Airways do. I inquired about the hotel within the airport and it costs $300 for 8 hours. Ridiculous. There is no place to sleep properly in the airport, I saw people laying down on the floor."

Pros: "Amazing crew"

Pros: "The food was amazing with good And comfortable air conditioning. Cleanliness was maintained as well."

Cons: "As above"

Pros: "Breakfast was slightly better than dinner choice"
Cons: "Window seat is quite cramped and I am not sure why I had to pay to choose a seat before this flight but not for my previous flight to Singapore which resulted in me getting one of the last seats available which was a pretty cramped window seat. Also too many repetitive announcements"

Cons: "Boarded by bus"

Pros: "787 comfort /"
Cons: "Limited movie selection/ outdated newspapers/ food quality"

Pros: "Aircraft was very good"
Cons: "Food very poor, staff mediocre"

Cons: "Poor service"

Pros: "The air hostess was very helpful .I had a problem with my seat and she arranged for a seat where I was and remained comfortable throughout my flight to Washington. Love"
Cons: "The food. I had asked for a Hindu meal. It seemed I got a diabetic meal which was devoid of taste. It should have been normal. I think Etihad misunderstood Hindu meal with Jain food,where they don't use spices,onions,garlic etc."

Pros: "Travelled in Airbus 380 for the firstvtime and I was impressed by size of the plane and comfort in economy class. Enough of leg space to bend my leg and avoid bad blood circulation. Overall comfortable flight."
Cons: "Again I found behaviour of few Crew Members a bit rute for instance i asked hor headphone from one of the attendant and she immediately told me that it cannot be missing as she put the headphone there by herself making me feel like as if i stole the headphones. I was bit speechless though i really wanted to reply to her but it would have been rude. Second thing I did not like about flight was foir serving. In our over 7 hour flight, we were just served breakfast in the morning just 2 hours before landing. Its not healthy to keep customers hungry what if the customer is diabetic. Airline need to understand that up in the sky we are dependent on them for our basic needs and it should be respected."

Pros: "The staff were great and very nice and helpful. It was very quiet in business class and we enjoyed that as economy was really crowded. The business class lounge was nice but needs a quiet area where people who have long layovers (like us) can lay down and have a darkened room for a bit of rest."
Cons: "The seat I was in was very hard and definitely needs more padding. My but was killing me during the flight but the cabin crew helped me by gin I got me 2blankets to fold up and sit on. The pillows are way too big and hard. I recommend paring them down the size they currently are. I was in seat 7-E. The business class bus was last to come so we waited for a long time to get to the plane. Most of economy was boarded before us. But not really a big problem as we did get on the plane with no problem."

Pros: "The movies were okay."
Cons: "The fellow traveller next to me was a large man who unfortunately spilled over onto me, either his legs pushed mine away or his arms covered mine underneath his. Then as it was a night flight, he fell asleep and snored in my ear - I didn't get any sleep at all. All in all it wasn't a nice experience."

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "Staff"
Cons: "Seat discomfort"

Pros: "I liked the cooperation of staff and the way they took care of me. Staff Took care of my request immediately and made sure I was comfortable. It was a blessing to travel in Etihad. In future , I will travel in Etihad only. I am planning to travel in June again and will book my ticket in my favorite airline, “ ETIHAD”"
Cons: "N. A."

Pros: "Every thing was good"

Pros: "The crew on board were gracious in helping swap seats with a passenger so that my partner and I could sit next to each other."
Cons: "My partner and I had booked our tickets separately and so were under different levels of check in (online). We were first to baggage drop at Ahmedabad and believed the staff at the check in counter would assist in getting our seats together as I have been shifted from my checked in seat on a previous flight. However he was unfriendly and unaccomodating which made it a very unpleasant journey."

Pros: "Connections on Etihad. Abu Dhabi airport. Service and hospitality. On time flights and easy check in. US immigration in Abu Dhabi was a breeze."
Cons: "Food was terrible and insufficient."

Pros: "I thought 11 thousand dollars for 2 of us to fly was way to dear business class there was not a lot of room. Was my own fault I thought I was going on a380 but I woukd think twice about booking again for that price not worth it."

Pros: "In flight entertainment"
Cons: "Air con too cold"

Pros: "Flight was on time, food was average ."
Cons: "Crew was bit rude"

Pros: "The flight was very quiet so I was able to lie down and get a good rest - I know this isn’t possible on every flight but it made the long flight a lot more comfortable. All of the crew members were very friendly and attentive. The food was really good and tasty (lamb curry I think it was) - best plane food that I’ve ever had. Good choice of new movies too."
Cons: "N/A"

Pros: "food was great!"
Cons: "Same crew not that friendly"

Pros: "That me and my son had a extra seat each"
Cons: "Wasn't served any food at all. And I had to go and get my own water from the staff"

Pros: "The Airbus A321 flight was much more comfortable than the 1st leg. The service again was good"
Cons: "There wasn't anything not to like."

Pros: "The service onboard was great, the crew were attentive and looked after the passengers."
Cons: "The Boeing plane had very restrictive movement while seated. It was especially difficult when eating on the plane you could not cut your food due to the space restriction with fellow passengers."

Cons: "The Crew do not give you the meal what you booked during reservation, what is the point in booking the meal prior if it is not served."

Pros: "Staff was great...Food was good...Upgraded to first class !!!!!"

Cons: "Crew needs to be more polite to passengers. I witnessed the crew being rude to multiple customers. Also the good needs work. I've traveled Etihad multiple times before and this experience has made me want to not fly them again"

Pros: "The was very poor they even offer use a drink on the first flight waited 15 mins for a coke that was died when the Gabe it"

Pros: "Seats were very comfy and food was great. Entertainment screen were nice and big with great resolution. Cabin crew was friendly and accommodating."
Cons: "Movie selection in the entertainment needs more options. No basic amenity kit (like blinds, socks and toothbush) was provided in the flight like Emirates Certain sections of the Abu Dhabi airport are disappointing. Bathrooms in that particular section of the airport were really dirty and broken. Also travelling by bus to the airplane is not desired for such a major airline home airport. I read somewhere that airport is going to go through major renovation in 2019, so I hope it will become as good as Dubai airport"

Pros: "The food quality was good but they repeated the same food when we started & before landing. Kids usually won;t like eating same food again."

Pros: "Not a lot"
Cons: "Being charged for extra weight when it use to be that weight .. I had no hand luggage and I noticed some people having three bags .. where's the justification in that"

Pros: "Only inflight entertainment"
Cons: "No one told me or suggested me of asking for accomodation as I had stopover for over 15 hours. Staff made an excuse and blamed ticketing agent. Even Kayak.com did not suggest this. Had to spend couple of hundred dollar for accomodation . Not happy at all. First time experience with flight and booking agent is very unsatisfied. Thank you though"

Pros: "cheapest fiar"
Cons: "We have cancelled the trip on some personal problems online on kiwi.com, called twice also but till date no action is taken. Neither we got refund nor tickets got cancelled, eventhough we have cancelled tickets 3 days prior to start of our trip"

Pros: "Food"
Cons: "On the dreamliner flights they have tried to cram a ton of seats in so if your over 5'8 you'll be very cramped with your knees under the seats and a strange headrest jammed I to your shoulder. I fly about 20 or 30k miles a year in economy and this is easily the most uncomfortably designed seat I've been in. More over the staff was incredibly dismissive and rude to all I witnessed then keep a older woman waiting for 45 mins for water and then dismiss her when she asked a second time. The check in staff was no better."

Pros: "Entertainment good variety."
Cons: "Poor service this time. Been with Etihad many times, always been 1st class service. This time was poor. Came round once with food and drinks, followed by coffee later...not the usual standard."

Cons: "Seat was too tight. No foot rest"

Pros: "Everything is good"

Pros: "Flight was not over crowded, allowing for proper social distancing! That is MUCH appreciated. Crew was wonderful."
Cons: "The couple in front of me got in a physical altercation as well as the couple seated behind me. Both situations caused much discomfort and could have been defused faster by flight crew"

Pros: "Boarding"
Cons: "Better seats, the main cabin extra seats were just like the other main cabin seats. One particular stewardess was very rude to all the passengers, while the steward Jeffery was very nice and friendly."

Pros: "Arrived alive, didn’t sleep in the Charlotte airport like last flight. didn’t lose a bag....didn’t check one, learned that lesson before"
Cons: "WiFi did’t work. Boarding the end of the terminal/gate was a mess. Crew was late, so flight was late. Packed in like sardines....normal American Airlines."

Pros: "Not a lot. Entertainment options on board were decent. Food was alright."
Cons: "Everything! Crew were terse, rude and inattentive. Due to an issue with a bag on board without the associated passenger we had to taxi back to the stand for it to be removed before we could take off. This cost us an hours delay. There was limited apologies for this, no refreshments provided during the wait and poor communication of this. During the flight the staff were inattentive and sparing with refreshments. Service generally did not live up to expected level associated with an inter-continents flight. The flight was turbulent but crew and captain seemed over cautious with it and crew had to remain seated unnecessarily at times and at the detriment of passenger service. One stewardess wouldn’t even let me finish a drink before removing it from my hand claiming we were about to land and she had to sit down because of turbulence. We were still 40 mins from landing at this point! All in all a pretty bad flight, and it’s safe to say I won’t be flying American Airlines again."

Cons: "Boarding slow"

Pros: "That the flight attendant was really helpful"
Cons: "If the flight would have been on time"

Cons: "Paid for First Class so I could sleep on this red-eye. Wasted my money. Seat was uncomfortable, legroom in my bulkhead seat was horrible. I can sleep anywhere...make that ALMOST anywhere, now."

Pros: "I loved the seating"
Cons: "Honestly on a 5 hour flight ✈️ power outlets would be helpful also maybe a tv so I can see where I am at"

Cons: "The flight from Chicago to Barcelona was delayed by 1.5 hour due to first, unexplained reason (looked like late arrival) and updating navigation maps (??). The flight back from Barcelona to Chicago was delayed by 3 hours first due to late arrival and then congestion at the airport."

Cons: "We asked if the Cajun chicken (which by the way isn’t anything like Cajun chicken) contained any nuts as one of us in the party is severely allergic, only to wait more than 15 minutes and were told they don’t have an allergen sheet so they don’t know! Pls take food allergies seriously!"

Cons: "I never made it... I had a trip interruption and got stuck in Chicago and would of had to wait another full 24hrs to take the flight to Denver. tired and nauseated after being all day at the airport that at midnight, i knew that I couldn't hold off till the next evening, took the next flight back."

Cons: "On Time. Delayed advice 3 times."

Cons: "There was a three hour delay for missing crew."

Pros: "This was a quick flight - 39 mins I also got an upgrade too"

Cons: "Missed the flight due to poor staff and a delayed landing from my crossover. Given how childish the ground staff were being, I can only assume the flight staff wouldn't be much better."

Pros: "アメリカの航空会社でエコノミーでビール、ワインのアルコールの提供があったのが意外でした。"

Pros: "Considering it was only a 2.5 hour flight, the snack was fairly good."

Pros: "The crew were great, entertainment was good."
Cons: "After sitting on the plane for an hour they found a problem and so we had to deboard and wait for another plane. Obviously better than taking a less than optimum plane but added a lot of waiting time to an already long day. Not great that on a 6 hour flight we had to buy food."

Pros: "The boarding process and its ease"
Cons: "The Wi-Fi was not free and quite expensive. The space between seats was too narrow for my legs resulting in an uncomfortable journey. The entertainment was dated and not varied enough. The food was borderline unsavoury. The wines were cheap... Not an airline I would recommend to anyone."

Pros: "It left on time and arrived on time"
Cons: "Service, comfort and food as I would rate these below 0 if there was that option."

Cons: "Caught an earlier flight and the entire team made the process seamless."

Pros: "Good seat"
Cons: "Headset didn't work and no replacement"

Pros: "It’s not like it used to be. U S based airlines lag behind their European and Asian counterparts"
Cons: "There’s always room for improvement. Too much to list here"

Pros: "The crew skipped me for breakfast and i had to ask for food."
Cons: "The food was not very good. Bread rolls stale and inedible. The rest of the flight was good."

Pros: "many movies"

Cons: "Entertainment is bad, there is not enough headset to the passengers, half way through the plane, the hostess is already out of earphone. I have to watch silent movies just like the old days. How can that happen"

Pros: "Plane was new and clean..good leg room."
Cons: "Being told to shut window blinds and spent most of the journey in darkness. No hot drinks. Long gaps between cold drinks. Staff not very friendly."

Pros: "Crew is helpful, seats comfortable, flight and baggage on time. Food was good for the airline."
Cons: "International connection experience is awful. I understand that AmericanAirlines is not responsible but no help or explanation was provided either."

Pros: "The flagship first seats in American Airlines are among the best in class given that I only flew from Miami to JFK. Fully flat beds and ample room."
Cons: "Very limited food options."

Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."

Pros: "None"
Cons: "The flight delayed several times, and the gate was changed. The plane is very old and no service at all (not even water during the 2 hours flight)!"

Pros: "Everything."
Cons: "Waiting for 30 minutes a Dublin to dock."

Pros: "I liked the room."
Cons: "There was no entertainment. Could not get seats together."

Pros: "Good legroom on economy"

Pros: "Outbound, it was on time, plenty of legroom, plenty of good snacks, drinks and food. An enjoyable flight. Score 10.0"
Cons: "Return flight - The flight departed 4 hours late. The seating was so cramped my husband couldn't move his legs at all, never mind try to sleep. The staff members were not smart in appearance, some with long untidy hair, and did not interact with passengers except to hand out food. The food was reasonable. We disembarked feeling like wrecks. Score 2.0"

Cons: "There should be more number of check in bags for passengers. At the least the overhead bins should be allowed to the passengers."

Pros: "Unlike previous AA flights, the process was smooth everywhere it mattered. Attendants and crew were friendly, service was prompt, flight was smooth."
Cons: "Everything was great."

Cons: "One bathroom for whole plane for 5.5 hr flight. Enough said."

Cons: "The flight was delayed. The food was not great. There is not a lot of space in these planes, and it was a long flight. There is no power supply."

Cons: "in the airport, the gate area dirty!, bathrooms dirty, no place to charge phone. The walk to the airplane, getting aboard the plane after the gate and flight changed and delayed. Being told it was weather related on the plane and being told it was MAINTENANCE by customer service. The plane was very crowded, the flight attendants never smiled. WHen i told the attendant i was being "rained" on he said...i know its happening everywhere..... he said there was nothing he could do but get me paper towels...they never came. I was very annoyed getting off the plane walking back and forth....it was aweful. and my flight before this was no better i am VERY TURNED OFF BY AMERICAN AIRLINES RIGHT NOW."

Pros: "The crew were polite, accommodating and understanding"
Cons: "The gate was changed 1hr prior to boarding despite the arriving plane having landed 3hrs prior. So with stroller and infant in toe, I had to run to change terminals/buildings. There was no assistance or prior warning regarding this from the check in staff and I made it all the way to the original terminal and gate before having to turn around. The desk staff at the gate was asked about early boarding for infants and said it would be okay but didn’t give clear instructions on boarding so I sat down and they began boarding each group 20 minutes later and did not give priority to mother’s with infants. The stroller which I brought to the gate was then tagged incorrectly with a white tag instead of a pink tag. I was later told by he crew that it meant it would go directly to baggage claim instead of being brought to the door. According to the crew, all staff know to tag with a pink tag. At every step there was blatant display of inconsideration that made an already difficulty journey, that much more challenging."

Pros: "The staff were very friendly and helpful"
Cons: "Bag checkin had already been done online but did it again in terminal, weigh in lady not helpful or friendly, quite abrupt. Onboard seating cramped and worse when front seats were reclined."

Pros: "We didn’t crash. Movies on board"
Cons: "One hateful flight attendant that would not let me move a seat even though it wasn’t premium seat or anything and the entire row was open. Seats are SUPER cramped. Like an Asian budget carrier."

Pros: "Great crew"
Cons: "WiFi not working"

Pros: "The help on getting on the plane and the pleasant staff on the flight"
Cons: "The food"

Pros: "Smooth flight, not too bumpy. Also flew on time and landed early. Free beer"
Cons: "No internet. No tv screens. Jet blue is still better."

Pros: "Friendliness of crew"
Cons: "Fourth roundtrip flight where I have been unable to use my upgrades to upgrade to first class on any of the four segments. What good are the upgrades?"

Pros: "Left and arrived more or less on time. No major issues."
Cons: "Gates are way too far apart in Miami and the golf carts to get between areas seem to require reservations and long waits. Ridiculous. Most MIA staff was very rude (this wasn't American's own staff, or TSA, I should note). American stripped my group of our seat assignments (which we had selected 6 months prior) without reason and with minimal apology. No solution offered. Got middle seats but luckily was able to switch on one of the computer kiosks. Flight crew didn't seem to care that other people moved to the for-pay seats further up front (the flight wasn't full)... so why did we lose our seat assignments and get grief with not being able to select anything good? Not impressed."

Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Passengers bringing hot food on plane. KFC and McDonalds odours major in first 30 minutes"
