Best fligh

The wifi wasn’t working, waste of money. There was no space for carry in baggage, had to hold all the valuables and the carry in baggage was went to cargo

Cons: "We didn't get to fly from SYDNEY to CHRISTCHURCH when we were supposed to!"
Pros: "I had a trouble because of crazy guy who sat behind of my seat. But crews didn't try to solve that problem actively. So, I will complaint about the attitudes of crews tomorrow morning."
Cons: "Crews attitude for the problems because of crazy guy of the flight. That was very passive responce. I was very embarrassed and frustrated. Why didn't the crews control and solve that kinds of problem? I don't understand. The crazy guy hits my seat about 4 to 5 times strongly."

Cons: "fliglth to short"
Pros: "The quality of the food"

Cons: "Though more comfortable than other flights like KLM, it was still a little cramped"
Pros: "I always love traveli ng eith Emirates. Great service. They are punctual. Good entertainment system. Comfortable flights and service overall."
Pros: "All of the above"
Cons: "Nothing that i didn't like"
Pros: "The departure and return flight time, for the price I paid, I felt like I was in more than an economy flight. The meal, the baggage quota, the entertainment. The time flew because by the time the movie had finished, we were starting to descend. I will always look for this flight with Emirates. There is no other flight in comparison, in what you get for your Buck. I believe that other Airlines, ie., Qantas, Virgin Aust, both give you a flight and service, for nearly the same fare but you only get 7kg luggage, no meal just the basic entitlement, tea/coffe/water with a biscuit or something like that and NO ENTERTAINMENT, NO COMPARISON!!!!"
Cons: "All good"
Cons: "One carryon and no personal item - inconvenient and irritating! Security staff disposed of manicure scissors that met printed guidelines. Checked baggage was damaged, will avoid Emirates because of this. Staff, comfort, and food were very good, but will still select other airlines"
Cons: "My original flight was delayed so I needed to book for a hotel in manila and need to rebook my connecting flight from christchurch to queenstown. Supposedly, the airline company should offer a reimbursement for all my additional expenses. Vey inconvenient on my part."
Cons: "luggage did not make connecting flight from dubai to jfk, inspite of pilot telling us 1 hour or so delay was waiting for luggage. at jfk was told can get same night if want to. this proved futile . spent hours at JFk waiting and talking to Emirates. spoke with multiple agents including Luz, sarah, etc. finally around 12 midnight was told customs would not release till next day. but promised to get it to us by 12noon next day (flying to wyoming next day at 330 pm) . this did not happen. again multiple phone calls and promises , failed. Kiamaria even got text of address in WY where 2 suitcases should have gone. All 4 suitcases were sent to NJ and arrived at 9pm. more phone calls. this time Rachel helped with fedex labels unfortunately more problems as fedex said no barcode and we had to go to fedex office and finally they took care of it so many hours wasted, not to mention the anxiety and frustratioon How are you going to reimburse all this ????"
Cons: "Was not told that my luggage was on a weght system and not a piece system for a n international flight. I ended up paying $249 for my extra suitcase that weighted 25 lbs and it was only a 2.5 hour flighr!"
Pros: "Emirates is a true Customer Service oriented airline. It is a relief to know that in this age of carriers that charge you a lot and treat you like you are paying a bus ticket there are airlines that still know the key to success. Boarding was fine and not dependent on local personalities. You can tell the company cares about training. The food and entertainment is excellent. Seats are still a little smaller but they try and make up with it with other perks. Flight crew was polite, smiling, and accommodating no matter the time. Pillows, blankets, snacks, etc. all given without having to ask or be charged. We were also given these little self care packs with toothbrush & paste, eye pillow, socks, and earplugs! Overall it made a long flight over night very comfortable."
Cons: "Nothing!"
Cons: "Poor service, host lied when queried on arrival documentation to avoid doing anything. Second person we asked was helpful and answered immediately. Plane was two hours late with no explanation or communication. I did not expect such a poor level of service and it my worst experience with emerits."
Pros: "Just superb. Even got a meal on a 40 minute flight!"
Cons: "Long bus ride to the aircraft - thought we were driving to Muscat!"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "Nothing. It was worst."
Cons: "They bother me with my duty free gifts. You have to make some solutions"
Cons: "The crew were so friendly"
Pros: "It felt comfortable."
Pros: "Food was great! The aircraft was very nice and the flight attendants were so helpful! Only a 3 1/2 hour flight and it was the best way I have flown!"
Cons: "During flight from San Fransico to Delhi,flight was to changed at Dubai for Delhi.There was no information on board as new the "gate no" at Dubai for Delhi."
Pros: "Customer service, amenities like socks, sleeping mask, free headphones and free drinks were all excellent part of the trip."
Cons: "I'm a reasonable we'll traveled man who always flies economy class (unless I get a free upgrade or a great price to upgrade at check in). This is the most uncomfortable, cramped, and smallest seat I have ever flown in...first time flying Emirates...I certainly would never fly again and actual am haunted by the idea of the return flight in 10 days. Not worth it! I'd rather deal with possibly getting dragged off a United flight!"
Pros: "The food this time was amazing...The time of boarding was good. No delays"
Cons: "The touch screens were hanging making it difficult to watch movies. Also they served a lot of booze to people and one of my neighbours vomited in arrival. It was a mess"
Pros: "Nice trip"
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "Loved how professional, courteous,pleasant and efficient all flight attendants were."
Cons: "Majority of movies were either B movies or older movies. Would have enjoyed more recent movies."
Pros: "Clean bathrooms, new plane"
Cons: "Families w/ babies overran the flight with incessant crying, talking, and moving around for the entire 14 hour trip!!! It made for a stressful and uncomfortable journey. Families with babies and young kids should be seated in their own section with some type of sound barrier. The flight attendants did nothing to control these families who took over sections of the plane as if it were their own personal space. I empathize, Im a mother. But have some common courtesy!"
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Flight was a hour late, then we sat on the plane for another half hour because people were in the wrong seat"
Pros: "The service was excellent. Plane comfort make the flight a pleasent one and less tiring."
Pros: "Lots of leg room. Excellent entertainment system."

Pros: "Best airline. Comfortable seats"
Pros: "I enjoyed every thing."
Cons: "In Kenya we was waiting to get a seat from Dubai. That was not good."
Pros: "I like the ice from emirates"
Cons: "Crew members service"
Pros: "Satisfactory in all respect"
Pros: "Same as above"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "Everything from check in to arrival"

Pros: "Crew amazing."
Cons: "Food variety should be increased."

We arrived hongkong and was informed that our flight has been rebooked even though we can see that the plane was still there and staffs are still at the gate. We were transferred to a layover flight from HongKong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland instead of going straight. Seats was set far apart with no competitions at all. Sorry is not enough for this big hassle."

Was put on 2 lay overs instead of just 1 (hongkong to Aussie then Aussie to Auckland. With no compensation at all. Sorry is not enough."

Cons: "Had entertainment without downloading the WestJet app and/or payoff for stuff."
Pros: "CX still has good offerings on flights from their home in Hong Kong to other destinations."
Cons: "However, CX for International Regional is, in no way, comparable to their better long-haul routes. That being said, the entire airline has lost its luster like their home country is losing their value with prices going up and value for-the-dollar going down."
Pros: "Food was good Crew members were good Washroom were clean Smooth flight Comfortable seat"
Cons: "Nothing to dislike"

Pros: "What a difference after getting off BA! Staff wonderful, always happy to help and always a smile. PE seats on new A350 are great, although too much cheap, hard plastic on seat back. Very comfortable with great pitch. Food exceptional and beautifully presented. Dim sum for breakfast was sensational. Pier Business class lounge breathtaking, with several large rooms with different food options, served to you - the fresh made noodles a must - and a staffed, well stocked bar. Absolutely gorgeous space."
Cons: "Surprised (and first time on Cathay I've seen this) toilet was revolting towards end of flight. Movie selection disappointing, as not many new releases and not all that many others."
Cons: "Child in seat behind hitting screen in back of headrest (play a game on it) while I was trying to sleep in the middle of the night"
Pros: "The hard product of seats and plane was really nice. Flying the new A359, very comfortable. Lower cabin pressure felt really nice on the skin. Lie flat beds were a treat, and a massive entertainment system."

Pros: "nothing"
Cons: "flight sells man were horrible. they were not helpful nor caring, and didnt help me with my problem."

Cons: "Service was terrible, crew was rude. Flight was delayed 2 hours leaving Tel Aviv and my luggage was not here when we arrived. They let us wait two hours for luggage before telling us it wasn't going to make it in. Frustrated and disappointed! Ground security in Turkey was rude and took my sons skate board which we had flown to Israel with and back to turkey, then they told us it couldn't come with us to miami although we flew Turkish both directions with no problem. In the end gate staff went and rescued his skate board from security as he got to the flight crying his little eyes out. Communication was terrible and staff was rude!"
Pros: "Entertainment and food was good."

Pros: "I have been travelling on the Turkish airline since years and it is definitely the best"

Cons: "They used to have more legroom"

Filed a report at Frankfurt Airport but it was filled with all my essentials and some valuables and the airport staff didnt seem to concerned in helping me.... To clarify, my experience through Kayak has been fine! However this whole ordeal has left a very sour taste in my mouth...i still dont have my luggage.

Pros: "friendly crew and superior service"
Pros: "The food is amazing, the crew is very attentive"
Cons: "The seats can use work. Very uncomfortable"
Pros: "Once on the plane everything was fine."
Cons: "My first flight was changed. Only one email was send about that change. It got lost in some other emails so I didn't see it. But I did not receive any other update or reminder. So I had figure out how to change all of my flights from there to Kansas in the States. All with bad internet service and unhelpful costomer service. And having to deal with two unexpected long layovers. All that to say, sending periodic emails is important especially if the flight had been changed."
Pros: "Great entertainment and food."
Cons: "Boarding was very long."
Pros: "Good service"
Cons: "They need better movies and music"
Pros: "Food was good. Flight was fast. On time."

Cons: "Great flight company"
Pros: "Friendly crew, easy boarding process. Lunch o.k. but nothing special."
Cons: "My husband is 5'11' tall and was extremely uncomfortable because his knees were right up against the seat in front of him. The man on the other side of me was also very uncomfortable because of the same reason. I am only 4'11" and so I didn't have a problem. I would have rated this trip excellent except for the uncomfortable seating. I know this is done to cram in as many seats as possible into the plane, and thus sell more tickets, but from a passenger's perspective, this is a terrible practice."
Pros: "This flight was short and easy. Easy to board. Served an awesome cold breakfast. No problems."
Cons: "No personal screens."
Pros: "Good short flights"
Cons: "No issues."

Please keep the flight schedule. I missed connection flight due to delayed Abudhabi to JFK flight. I will reach home late by 15 hours. For outbound journey also, I got stuck at Abudhabi for about 8 hours on 13-14th November night. Very Bad experience!

The tickets from the airline were very restricted. I neither could change my departure nor destination. I was given the only option of open ticket and that too is valid only for 1 year.

Pros: "Amazing crew and excellent food and beverage choices"
Pros: "Love Etihad service"
Cons: "Snacks, i didn't want set meal"
Pros: "The service was good"
Cons: "At abudhabi there was no sitting available, while waiting for connecting flight, and saw people spitting in the airport lounge, it was unsanitary. Why ethihad donot enforce cleanliness in the lounge."
Pros: "Lounge in Abu Dhabi was great!"
Cons: "Food we got was not promised. Drinks are not served or highlighted based on requirements"
Pros: "Crew was great, food was great, seat was comfortable"
Pros: "I flew economy Melbourne > Abu Dhabi and then Abu Dhabi to Melbourne. The first leg of the flight was great, the flight wasn’t full and I had a whole row to myself. The flight attendant even gave me some tips to ensure nobody sat there. This flight was on an A380 so the plane was large and it felt spacious."
Cons: "There are a number of things that Etihad do that just degrade the quality and experience of the flight and I probably wouldn’t fly with them again as a result. I’ve listed these below: 1) Entertainment system is poorly appointed and travel in two seperate months found that little had been refreshed on the in flight programs. 2) The entertainment system is deactivated until the seat belt sign is turned off, and is deactivated again about 30 minutes prior to landing. 3) You practically have to cut off your arm to get some water. I would always bring my own water on the flight, but Australian regulations prevent more than 100mls being carried on flight. 4) The service is inconsistent, some staff are just downright rude and others are incredibly friendly. The time waiting after pressing the call bell is excessive and in one case my drink never arrived. 5) Unlike other airlines, they don’t give you a “menu” to chose from for the inflight meal. Instead they just come around asking “Chicken, Lamb or vegetarian”, and lack any real understanding of what’s actually in the food. 6) When you order a drink, they open the can pour some into a cup but don’t give you the remainder in the can. 7) The inflight wifi is expensive. 19.95 USD for 180mb puts them at one of the most expensive. Overall, I would have expected a bit more from an airline such as Etihad."
Pros: "I had a really good asigned seat"
Cons: "Still no Harry Potter films"
Cons: "It was bit long. Especially long hault at abudhabi."
Cons: "They did not load one of my bag in Abu Dhabi for my interconnecting flight from Toronto to Dammam"
Pros: "Flight was punctual. A380 is a nice plane to fly on, but see other comments. Entertainment choices are good, but see other comments."
Cons: "On arrival at Sydney, discovered my bag damaged. The metal cage that holds the handle slider had been broken so they must have really thumped the bag. Re windows and cabin lighting. Flight left Abu Dhabi at 21:50, landed Sydney at 17:50 next day. The cabin was kept in darkness until 3pm Sydney time / 9am Abu Dhabi time. This only gave us 2 hours of daylight on Tuesday, terrible in trying to adjust to a new timezone!! Even going off Abu Dhabi time, why wait till 9am to turn on the lights and raise the windows? No-one sleeps that long and it creates too much darkness. Please turn on the lights and raise window shades a few hours earlier to help our body clocks adjust. The view of the world outside the window is also interesting! Re entertainment system: with some airlines you can use the entertainment system immediately on embarking but with Etihad you have to wait till airborne. Considering boarding begins an hour before departure, that is a long time to sit waiting without being able to use the entertainment system. Re comfort: I don't know why, but the Etihad A380 seats have this weird head rest on one side that can't be folded flat. I found it quite annoying. Also when you recline the seat, it also goes forward scrunching you towards the seat in front. I found the Emirates A380 seat a lot roomier and more comfortable."
Pros: "Incredible crew. Outstanding service."
Cons: "Business class layout was not great. Interior layout needs refurbishment!"
Pros: "Fast track"
Cons: "Food"
Pros: "The flight attendants spoke English very well. They were helpful and attentive."
Cons: "I don't like the wait time for the empty food trays to be picked up. But this exist on every airlines."
Pros: "I liked everything but I still could not find out if I was getting credit on the frequent flyer sustem"
Pros: "Bangalore airport is a bit slow but everything works."
Cons: "Airport WiFi in Bangalore isn’t very good"
Pros: "Upgraded with miles for the long leg Melb to Abu Dhabi. Flat beds tight both length and width for me at 6ft 3inches. I slept fitfully for 7 hours. Food seemed better than my last experience of their business class."
Cons: "Seats still narrow and firm. Rather noisy, a 777, appreciated my Bose quiet comforts..."
Pros: "Had the front seats with legroom on a 380, significantly quieter there than in Business on a 777 Was out of Heathrow within 40 mins of landing, usually a lot longer!"
Cons: "Food was minimalistic, bkfst and then a chicken sandwich on a 7 hour flight..."
Pros: "Every thing is good inspite of food"
Cons: "Cheep quality of food"
Cons: "Lied to me about my seat assignment. I was teady to pay for extra leg room bufor they declined and said they assigned extra leg room seat. But later I found that it is Norma seat. Liers"
Cons: "Mishandled baggage"
Pros: "i arrived safely"
Cons: "Even thiugh i paid for first class , i was made to wait for 30 minutes while economy passengers boarded. Many of them arrived after me. Other first class flights allow you to eat when you want. not this one. i slept through their mealtime - no food for me. the seats also do not recline fully. Since the treatment is not first class, might as well fly economy on this one."
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: "Few good stores to shop at the airport, could have been better"
Cons: "No accomodation was provided. I had over 15 hours of layover and no one had the courtesy to provide neither the airlines nor the online booking agent(site- Kayak)information on pre hotel booking. I have travelled through many other airlines who provide accomodation for long layovers without prebooking on arrival. It was a very unpleasant experience with the airlines. Upon asking at the service desk for accomodation the simply denied and informed about prebooking which I had no clue about. Thank you anyways. Hope someone else doesn’t suffer like this"
Cons: "Even though I was in economy class, crew service can improve"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "I missed the flight in the airport and when I went to the office in the airport to put me on the next flight they denied help. They asked me to pay the difference. I had to agree but I had not a credit card so they refused to take cash. Spend very frustrating two hours trying to convince the rude employee to put me on the flight... Do not use that airport or that company."
Pros: "Quick boarding"
Cons: "comfort crew"
Cons: "Ground staff is so inefficient and checkin process at JFK and boarding at AUH is abysmal. Ground staff at JFK have no regard for time and on time departure. Seriously lacking in entertainment options inflight and food is mediocre. Etihad is seriously lagging other competitors from same region like Enirates. This would effect my choice airline for my future travels."
Pros: "NA"
Cons: "I am very upset with Etihiad's service. On both ways, I had trouble with my luggage. On the way to Delhi all my bags were open and stuff was missing and now on the way back to U.S. all of my luggage was missing. I would not choose to fly Etihad again."
Pros: "Crew serve with passion"
Cons: "Long queue for check-in"
Pros: "I liked the speed of the journey"
Cons: "delayed flight passenger management of frustrated customers no compensation no apologies care of customers after long delay"
Pros: "Gets you where you need to be"
Cons: "Broken entertainment, very uncomfortable seats, a feeling that economy is not that important to them despite the fact tickets are not exactly economy! Horrible dated beige colours everywhere and dated planes"
Cons: "one and half hour late, barely made to the next flight!"
Cons: "No legroom. Inattentive stewards."
Cons: "Etihad food used to be very good. Say no more. Now their menu is just like any other airline."
Pros: "The food"
Cons: "Flight was delayed. Wait,wait,wait. Overnight stay in a HARD AIRPORT CHAIR."
Pros: "All"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "crew was helpful!"
Cons: "Etihad has limited in flight movies compared to emirates"
Pros: "In-flight service and entertainment."
Cons: "The layover at Abu Dhabi airport was too small and we had to literally run through security check, US pre-clearance to get onto our flight."
Pros: "Didnt make it. Neither did they give me an alternative to the flight."
Pros: "Only five movies in spanish including subtitled...."
Pros: "The female crew was very unattentive. Even raising my hand and calling them, those female crew keep walking."
Cons: "The food was not good . I am planning to continue flights booking with Ethihad- hopefully I will select a window seat on the 2 seat rows and will select other king of vegetarian food."
Pros: "Good service. On time. Comfy lie-flat seats"
Cons: "On bok-aug night time flight rich Arab family with two nannies and 3 kids in b class. Kids did not have their own seats. Kids terrorized the entire cabin. Parents could not care less. Flight attendants helpless."
Pros: "The food. The charging spots and latest movies."
Cons: "Layovers"
Cons: "Delayed departure, lost luggage"
Pros: "Nothing much."
Cons: "NA"
Pros: "The pillow that cradles your head and neck! I've flown with many international airlines over 20+ years and Etihad is now my number one choice. It seems to really think about passengers' comfort. I also enjoyed watching documentaries on fashion designer Michael Kors and singer David Bowie."
Cons: "Flight attendants were polite but one told me, "You should put the tray up." I suppose she was thinking in French, where people say "il faut faire…" To an English speaker "you should" doesn't sound soft. I think the flight attendant wasn't aware of the nuance in English. Everything else about her was courteous, and everything else on the flight went smoothly. I would recommend Etihad to anyone."

Flt was only 3/4 full ,., How bad could it be ?

Usual

Missed our connection due to delayed. Ended up with a replacement flight with connections getting us in really late and annoying..

Crew needs to treat passengers better, kinder.

They cancelled our flight and no communication and we had to be on hold for 2 hours to be able to talk to someone and never got to, my trip both ways got cancelled once and would not recommend AA to anyone

Cons: "The plane was completely packed despite the COVID pandemic. A stranger sat next to me on the plane (distance of about 6 inches, not 6 feet). What social distancing? And yet they conveniently said no food/drink beverage for safety reasons. Good way for the airline to save a few bucks. Other airlines (like JetBlue) block out adjacent sears and give snacks in individual bags but this... I flew several times since the pandemic began and this was by far the worst. What a joke of an airline. Never flying them again"
Pros: "Great comfortable seats"
Cons: "Too much turbulence"
Pros: "Amazingly helpful and friendly crew."
Cons: "Affordable fares equates to small space."
Cons: "Amazing!"
Pros: "The crew was great. They especially did a remarkable job keeping bathrooms clean."
Cons: "Food is definitely not as good as international airlines."
Pros: "Flight arrived early. Stewardess although newer was attentive"
Cons: "Nothing the flight was great"
Pros: "Flight on time"
Pros: "MIA to EZE we got the priority seats and it was worth the extra expense."
Cons: "Honoring paid reservations. Our flight was cancelled and rescheduled 4 times within the last few days. Communication. No one emailed me or called me to give me options or to even tell me they were kicking me out"
Pros: "The crew was great!"
Cons: "American has had maintenance delay nightmares all week. Including this flight, where we switched gates and still was delayed significantly."
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Everything comfort communication"
Pros: "Food was surprisingly tasty for airplane food, vote would be lovely if someone could figure out how to produce a hash brown at the passenger seat without having it be limp"
Cons: "I’m guessing that a great many passengers would happily pay 10% more on their fair to have 10% fewer seats on board so that was actually possible to achieve a state of modest comfort while flying in a 12 hour flight."
Pros: "Excellent crew"
Cons: "Couldn’t. Ate, slept, woke, ate and landed. Too easy"
Cons: "No inflight service"
Pros: "loved the free movies on board, also on time departure and before time arrival makes me feel the best."
Pros: "The flight was shorter than we expected! And after a long flight that was most appreciated."
Pros: "The flight was on time. The crew was friendly."
Cons: "Too little legroom."
Pros: "Great service and sweet attendants"
Cons: "Person next to me was a little large and it was uncomfortable."
Cons: "American Airlines Needs New Leadership From "Top" To "Bottom" Really Real Talk!!!! That Is All!!!!"
Cons: "American wins tge coach torture contest!"
Cons: "American Airlines won't let you buy emergency row exit seats (or bulk head) because the 'code share' prevents them from advance seat sales. I was told I could do it at check in in Los Angeles. But those seats were sold out long before we even got to LA! I contacted American Airlines Customer Relations about 1 month prior to my flight. I completed their online form detailing the problem and asked if there is any way I could buy extra leg room seats. But they never even bothered to respond. I got the automated email acknowledging receipt of my complaint and assuring me I would be contacted soon. NOT!!"
Pros: "The crew was friendly. They attempted to resolve issues quickly. The service was late getting out but just barely and on time to arrive."
Cons: "Broken screen in front of me and my seat wouldn’t recline. The crew was helpful to resist the screen and it worked for a bit. But it’s a bit disappointing to see a new aircraft be poorly cared for. Boarding was just a mush of people. Why bother to have reached gold status if every Tom dick and Harry with a credit card will just plow ahead of you?"
Pros: "The Boeing 787 from LAX to Auckland was noticeably more comfortable than the Airbus 321 I flew to LAX to start the trip. Food was actually good!"
Cons: "For an obviously new aircraft the space between rows was horrendous. I am 5ft4in tall and when I sat down my knees touched the seat in front of me. When the passenger in front of me tilted his seat back I couldn’t even cross my legs! I like Qantas but I have learned to abhor American Airlines (which operated this flight), next time I will probably use Air New Zealand purely because of the seat situation."
Cons: "Food service was not announced. Take off was delayed one hour"
Pros: "New plane, great crew on board."
Cons: "seats were hard especially for a 13 1/2 hour flight."
Pros: "Very upset this was an American Airlines Plane and not Quantas. There was very little room so it was an extremely uncomfortable 13+ hour redeye flight."
Cons: "Bait and switch tactics, size of seats."
Pros: "The food was good, the crew was very professional. The flight was on time. The seats were OK, but not conducive to sleeping."
Cons: "We weren't assigned seats together. It ultimately worked out OK because I was assigned to sit between a mother and her young child. They asked if they could have my middle seat so they could sit together - hurray! After that, the person in the aisle seat next to my husband was willing to swap her aisle seat for my new-found aisle seat. But on long flights, greater efforts should be made to seat couples together."
Pros: "Smooth operation, on time"
Cons: "Seat pitch on the plane unbelievably cramped. When seats are so close that if you drop something on the floor you have to be a contortionist to get it, you know it's a problem NEVER fly the 787-900 economy."
Cons: "The seats were really bad, it was our first trip on a 787 and I will never do it again. Not as bad as the Airbus from MIA but considering it's 13 hours it was totally rubbish. We normally fly the 777 with Air NZ, after this we will go back to them. The staff, as always were helpfull and pleasant, the plane was quiet but the seats....."
Pros: "It Was Great. Flight Attendant Rita Was Amazing. The Flight Was Quite And Relaxing."
Cons: "That It Didn’t Last Longer. It Was A Short Trip."
Cons: "A couple of flight attendants were a bit grumpy/short with passengers. Lack of food definitely not ideal but glad they could get something given circumstances with health department. Still waiting for promised vouchers to arrive."
Pros: "Food! Friendly crew"
Pros: "Service and amenities"
Pros: "Once in the air things went well."
Cons: "We spent more time on the tarmac than in the air. The plane was unusually noisy on landing. There was little room"
Pros: "N/A"
Cons: "N/A"
Cons: "Lost our bag in LAX"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Delay, first told it was weather related, then mechanical. Re booked on a flight by AA that would never make connection. Paid over $1,000 for a flight leg that one way and direct on another airline (Alaska air) was $281.00 and the agent took so long to find redirect flight that they couldn't book. Total mess! While struck on the second leg and speaking with AA customer service about the reschedule I was told that they didn't have the ability to rectify the error because they no longer had control of my ticket and that I had to take into consideration that three was an event in San Antonio that caused delays network wide that added tio the initial issue... HOGWASH! 1) it was another AA issue where an AA aircraft drive of the runway while I was in flight on the first errant leg. 2) if they had just been straight from the outset, I wouldn't have been delayed. I will never fly AA AGAIN!"
Pros: "Wonderful flight, kind helpful staff and a very comfortable beautiful new aircraft. I look forward to flying Quantas again."
Pros: "Wonderful flight"
Pros: "Price was right"
Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Thought it was funny I didn't get a survey about my disaster trying to leave Boston, only the on time flight getting back. 6 hour delay leaving because of a warning light they didn't catch to begin with. Missed a whole day of vaca. No help once they deplaned us. Horrible flight. First time on American too. Paid for a window seat specific and had no window."
Pros: "The employee working the desk in Seattle was great. Long lines to check in and she took the time to assign us seats next to each other. Loved the bonus of the seats being in an exit row."
Cons: "Flight changed with no notification."
Cons: "delay's............................. .......................................... ........"
Cons: "Seats far too close together even for cosch"
Pros: "Boarding was efficient and the gate staff were able to switch my seat to a window seat upon request."
Cons: "The entertainment on the flight was only fair compared to my initial flight on Japan Airlines. The tv monitors were fairly grainy and there were fewer movie options. Additionally you could only watch movies at preset times and could not pause or rewind while watching. Particularly on a very long flight this is inconvenient if you want to pause to go to sleep or eat, etc."
