Airlines lost all my bags and is not being helpful at all in tracing them. Value of baggage is over $25,000. I expect a full refund and expect to be compensated for the loss.
Clean, neat, well maintained and on time performance.
Horrible experience at JKIA. Basic courtesy was lacking. Only the lady supervisor was pleasant and reasonable but it was too little too late for us.
Pros: "I really loved the food and the attendants were super friendly and helpful"
Pros: "On March 4, my wife and I made a flight from New York to Sydney with a transfer in Doha, Qatar. We flew the Qatar airline business class. Everything was great despite a very large flight. New plane, very clean. Wide comfortable seats turning into a large comfortable bed. Great menu and good wine list. All staff are professionally trained and very friendly. All this made this flight very comfortable and we were not tired."
Pros: "Little things like being greeted by name when boarding, funny safety video"
Cons: "Wasn't the biggest fan of the food"
Pros: "crews are ok. but they run out chicken entre. awful."
Cons: "entertainment was poor. use remote control, really."
Cons: "Qatar Airways could improve food selection for business class."
Cons: "I bought my seat assignment in advance, and they did not give me this seat on the plane. Before boarding, I asked at the gate if my new seat was a window--which is what I paid for--and they confirmed yes, my new seat was a window. Turns out, it was not, it was a middle seat. I asked a flight attendant to relocate me to a window seat, which she kindly did, however this seat was quite uncomfortable as I was seated next to a large gentleman who probably should have been required to purchase two seats. Overall, there were two issues with Qatar Airways during this trip: they did not give me the seat I had requested and paid for, and then lied when I asked if my new seat was a window."
Cons: "Better vegetarian food"
Pros: "Crew was OK."
Cons: "Seats in business class extremely uncomfortable, almost no recline. Very old entertainment equipment. Really disappointing flight given lack of comfort in business class."
Pros: "The Crew were professional, friendly and comforting. The A380 Business Class is the best way to fly. Smooth journey, very comfortable reclining beds with enough room to within the bed area to move around with adequate space. The Wine list was excellent with a great choice and variety."
Cons: "Nothing to do with the flight...but Qatar could have offered an airport hotel room to their Bus. Class passengers for the 9 hour delay....we did have the Lounge, but a shower, rest and comfort after another previous 5 hour 30 minutes flight from Athens 11.30am Start to 2.00am start from Doa."
Pros: "Flight was on time, touch down smooth"
Cons: "The screen for my seat was not working correctly so could not do anything except wait for flight to finish"
Pros: "Q-suites are fantastic."
Cons: "Boarding was a mess. Premium boarding line was tied up by economy passengers and ground crew did not turn them back"
Pros: "Qatar is awesome. Amazing service and great new planes."
Cons: "All good"
Pros: "Of all the flights and airlines I have used this was definitely the top of my list . The aircraft was clean , the crew were polite, curious, and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food looked good tasted good and was plentiful. The pyjama were a nice added touch and very comfortable for the long flight. Flying into Cardiff airport was so good for my intended destination. I would certainly recommend them to others and many airlines could learn from their example.Well done and thank you"
Cons: "There was nothing I didn't like about this flight"
Pros: "I really like the Qatar flight from Auckland to Manchester. But beware now that the Akl leg leaves 1 hour later the transit in Doha is officially 1.15hr. But since the first leg is always getting in and you have to bus to the terminal, transit time is about 30 mins. Although they are efficient and i made it this time, i wouldn't want to do this with kids."
Cons: "Short transit time"
Cons: "being in the middle of three"
Cons: "My seat would not go back. The food was all carbohydrates and quite cool instead of warm. There was only one tiny piece of chicken in chicken roll."
Pros: "Friendly and genuine staff. Clean plane. Staff were well organised."
Cons: "Headphones didn’t fit my head and began to hurt my ears. Media cut out a lot."
Cons: "I missed my flight from Nairobi to kisumu"
Pros: "air hostess very nice polite five star"
Cons: "seat alloted"
Cons: "No proper communication and very poor management. I was on an emergency and no one bothered to listen and all the passengers were sent . The customer care numbers didn't work as they operate between 8-5 !! No one to reach to .. really bad experience. Don't suggest this aircraft for folks who needs to travel urgently !"
Pros: "Generally courteous in-flight staff"
Cons: "Checking in, they asked for certain number of miles to upgrade. I offered it. Then at the last minute they came and said their system didn't accept American moles. For a daily if their system, they denied service to passenger. This is the second time with them. Last time when another airline missed connection and this time a ticket that I purchased. Doubt if I would, again."
Pros: "great staff"
Cons: "Some of the head phone are not working at all...."
Pros: "Good, drinks, service and entertainment system."
Cons: "Baghdad is still an armpit. Doha is very nice. Kuwait not so nice. Qatar airlines has the best service I have ever had in 35 years of air travel."
Cons: "More veriaty on music would be good"
Pros: "Service was on point. The crew was very helpful."
Pros: "Good attitude from staff"
Cons: "The online check in system was down so we all had to line up to check in."
Cons: "The food options were good, but twice our family could not get the items we wanted as they ran out of them."
Pros: "Service. Kindness"
Cons: "Long flight on a 777-200. Crowded aircraft, crew not very attentive to call light, and food mediocre at best. Entertainment service was horrible, old movies and typical Qatar Airline selection of Bollywood films (Expected when flying from Doha, but not New Zealand!) Seat would not recline, but no option to move to another isle seat."
Pros: "Generally good experience at least as far as a very long flight with two children can go. Good food with plenty and quite healthy snacks for kids. Very friendly and attentive crew, comparably comfortable seats, clean and comfortable bathrooms (what not always has been my experience with other airlines)"
Cons: "Due to a misunderstanding at check-in we have been seated away from a baby bassinette (although booked) to sit together with my husband, nobody asked what my preference would be (sitting as a whole family or having a bassinette) and a 17-hour flight with a 9month old baby constantly on my lap was challenging. Also a very disappointing selection of films and documentaries for adults. I ended watching a kids movie with my older daughter and it was the only thing I found appealing. Kids section very good though, my 5-year old was glued to the screen and all the options had my approval :)"
Cons: "Two meals served. Too many chicken options, so alternates quickly ran out. Also first drinks were served 3.5 hours after boarding gate opened. No drink options at boarding gate."
Cons: "Not that many choice in movies"
Pros: "Everything was good!"
Cons: "I had a torn budd/hamstring muscle and an upgrade to another class would have been great because I was in constant pain. Hopefully, when I return in a few days - this could be arranged?"
Pros: "Excellent service and in time flights."
Pros: "Seats were roomy and leaned back quite comfortably. The gluten free meals I had were fantastic, which I've never said before of an airplane , even regular meals."
Cons: "It was an older plane. It seemed smaller and we had no choice in entertainment"
Pros: "Was not a pleasant flight"
Cons: "Basic onboard entertainment, even on business!Staff Could be more genuine!They handled the cabin baggage Like potato not helpful."
Pros: "The crew members are amazing."
Pros: "No problems at all!"
Cons: "I am platinium and got treated that way!!"
Pros: "The inflight entertainment didnt work at all. Food choice was pathetic."
Cons: "Food and inflight entertainment"
Pros: "It was nice service and hospitality"
Pros: "The crew were excellent"
Cons: "The plane was too small and lots of turbulence"
Cons: "Nothing. Great flight"
Pros: "Yes the crow was good"
Cons: "The wifi should be free to use without paying for it"
Cons: "The plane departed 1.5 hours late due to crew issues."
Cons: "More room is what everyone wants. It’s unrealistic though. First class was pretty comfortable."
Cons: "Every time I fly American through Charlotte someone removes my protective cover from one of my suitcases and does not put it back and I lose an expensive cover and my suitcase gets scratched."
Cons: "American Airlines continues to lag in their ability to proactively communicate updates to their customers. Then to top it off, they lack empathy and a true ability to accommodate customers."
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: "No entertainment system working"
Cons: "Free WiFi since entertainment was off"
Cons: "Flight delayed over 2 1/2 hrs causing missed meetings"
Cons: "Food options were just snacks. On a 4 hour flight? What??"
Pros: "The flight itself was about as average as any other flight. At least all our luggage made it from the incoming flight from Key West to join us in Charlotte. That was our final destination but most of the passengers were making additional connections."
Cons: "The boarding went like the plane was ready to leave on time, except it didn't. There was a delay because the flight crew came from another arriving flight, so they had to go through the full pre-flight checklist. Then there was a "minor maintenance issue" that couldn't be fixed right away because it was "shift change" for the maintenance crews. Eventually they arrived and fixed whatever, while everyone was getting texts and alerts that kept delaying the departure by 15-minute intervals. Over an hour (while sitting in a warm plane) after the original scheduled departure, we left the gate, sat on the taxiway a while, then took off. Cabin crew only had cookies and drinks, no other snacks or food. All anyone got was an apology for the extended delay."
Pros: "The crew was accommodating"
Cons: "The crew was pleasant. No water served due to turbulence"
Pros: "We where late boarding, jet didn’t have fuel, we had delay after delay. This flight is never on time. every time I have taken this flight I am delayed. Also getting into charolette, we always spend at least 20 min on the tarmac"
Pros: "Didn’t like anything"
Cons: "Old planes! Very old planes! No charging ports on board. No entertainment! Seats broken. for the largest carrier in the world as they say. Horrible! Three and a half hour delay missed my connection. Traveled for 16 hours on a flight that should have been 7 hours. HORRIBLE American Airlines."
Cons: "A fellow passenger used the restroom too late in the flight making us do anther circle around FWA. Oh well somebody couldn't hold it."
Pros: "One of the flight attendants was nice."
Cons: "AA is now trying to save money (presumably) by doing like Delta: forcing half of us to connect in Charlotte. Unfortunately, the Charlotte airport is not ready to accommodate so many people. The airport looks like it is being renovated, which is fine, but there is no tape/cones to mark off the renovated areas from the walkways. You literally walk through dirt and construction sites. I didn't even think that was legal in the US?! Anyway, maybe it will be worth it once the renovations are complete, especially if AA is going to use it as a hub."
Cons: "We sat in Charlotte on the runway and had to run to our connection. The airport seems too small for the amount of traffic. We usually try to avoid Charlotte, but it was the only way to use frequent flyer miles"
Pros: "But, the customer service was good."
Cons: "The flight was cancelled."
Cons: "After flying 24 hours one of four bags got put on a later flight. The line at baggage service was so long that by the time I waited for the bag it arrived on another flight 2 hours of wait! Unbelievable! Disappointing. And by the way if a passenger is assigned to a seat that doesn’t recline it should be heavily discounted. Heavily as in half price of a normal seat. It really is sad that airline industry is not more service focused and more efficient."
Cons: "The flight was late"
Cons: "Luggage did not make the transfer on time (Chicago-Charlotte after Tokyo), although they had about 45 minutes to load it. Do not buy an international ticket with less than 1.5 hours transfer time. (It took 45 minutes to get through customs/immigration and retrieve luggage for transfer."
Pros: "On time departure and arrival - friendly crew"
Cons: "No own movie screen."
Pros: "Timely and comfortable flight"
Cons: "There was a older Caucasian flight attendant that didn't have a name tag on that touched me twice on the shoulder"
Pros: "Friendly and helpful crew besides the message below. Still one of my favorite airlines!"
Cons: "Crew made too many announcements that were commercial. The volume of the announcements was out of sync with the inflight entertainment audio and hurt my ears."
Pros: "Nothing in particular. They got me there."
Cons: "The usual stuff. Uncomfortable. Worse than riding a bus."
Cons: "Kiosks were not functioning and we were forced to stand in long lines for customer service for luggage tags Many passengers missed their flights No help for those using malfunctioning kiosks only one person to help hundreds of stuck customers and we barely made our flight"
Pros: "Speed from Seattle to Charlotte. We made up for some lost time. Two empty seats beside me because I changed my seat assignment when attendant announced flight was not full."
Cons: "The plane was 2 hours late in arriving for pickup in Seattle. This was difficult for passengers with connections in Charlotte. I was fortunate because CLT was my final destination. Plane carpet was dirty."
Pros: "Excellent crew, food and entertainment."
Cons: "Staff was not friendly at all"
Pros: "Fit and finish of cabin interior was nice."
Cons: "I REALLY wish this flight had drop down footrests in coach. The video demonstration advises passengers to put up foot rests and tray tables upon approach. I wish there had been a foot rest - my back was killing me due to the inability to lift my knees and feet to take the pressure off my lower back."
Pros: "The seats were comfortable and big enough for large people. That crew and flight were on time and pleasant."
Cons: "I called to change my flight and the charge was outrageous. I fly often and other airlines have made changes with low fees. The the man on the phone with me was hard to understand because of his accent and was rude."
Pros: "Food was better than expected - not a fan of airline food, but this was not so bad."
Cons: "Finnair was thru American Airlines. American had only a couple of check in windows open when we got to the Frankfurt airport - nowhere near enough to handle the number of people checking in."
Pros: "The younger male crew staff was good Female staff poor Plane itself was poor . Seat Tray kept unlocking as latch old and faulty Connection was good although airport shuttle to gate uncomfortable due to navigate stairs with carry on"
Cons: "Arrived twenty minutes late. AA refused to accept responsibility for this and compensate me, even though my transportation had departed without me as a result of their tardiness."
Pros: "The entire process from check in to boarding to the actual flight was wonderful"
Pros: "The seats were more comfortable than I remember. The cost was appropriate for the travel I did. I was happy to find access to movies on my own device for the long flight."
Cons: "The snacks were limited and I had to use my own device for entertainment."
Pros: "Once seated flight was pleasant & arrived to our destination 20 min early."
Cons: "The flight attendants could have been more attentive to boarding customers. They were serving drinks to first class, talking in the aisles, did not move when you were trying to get in your seat. Too much commotion going on while boarding and it became frustrating."
Cons: "I got stuck in DC overnight and I was not provided with a hotel or meal voucher:"
Pros: "The flight was efficient and the crew were courteous."
Cons: "There isn't much to dislike, but it certainly wasn't anything extraordinary either."
Cons: "Being stuck in a high dollar city for an additional night when i should have made it to the lower intermediary city and flown standby the next day."
Pros: "Quick flight."
Cons: "Crew was rude and illogical."
Pros: "The plane actually left without a cancellation"
Cons: "Every flight on this trip was delayed"
Cons: "I took a flight in 2016 from Newark New Jersey four times and I only went to Florence South Carolina one time. I ended up in Myrtle Beach South Carolina, another time in Columbia South Carolina and the last time in Charlotte North Carolina. Each time I departed I had to pay to come back to Florence South Carolina."
Cons: "Seats are uncomfortable. Seats are too close together, not wide enough, to short, no knee room."
Cons: "American Airlines and the entire Terminal 5 in Rome did a horrible job of communicating with all outgoing flights on Monday the 18th when their computer systems went down. They kept us outside the terminal for two hours without restrooms or any explanation, finally began sending groups inside only to wait more hours past our flight time. Finally made it to delayed boarding several hours later, only to have them inform us at the bottom of the tube to go to plane that the flight was cancelled!!! Just said pick up your bags on Carousel 10 and that was it. Got our bags and booked a hotel to go to for the night, and they came out and said they were going to bus us to a hotel for the night. The hotel I booked was un-refundable and when I called American about our flight the next day that got messed up too and ended up with an extra five hour layover between flights. When we went to board from Charlotte to Nashville, the boarding agent announced we didn't have any pilots!!! So with a full flight, had to wait for them to find us some pilots. Will not fly American Airlines again if I can help it! Also the tv/entertainment units on the flight didn't work properly."
Pros: "Not a lot!"
Cons: "We had about seven wheelchair passengers booked on this flight and no one had a clue how to manage it. two ended up being carted off to other gates and the rest boarded slowly, resulting in a 40 minute delay departing. When we got to Charlotte there were planes backed up, another 20 minutes to get to a gate. My 90 minute leisurely stroll to my next flight morphed into a race across three concourses. Charlotte is a nightmare under the best conditions, this just sucked."
Pros: "Crew was polite and professional"
Cons: "First off, I got bumped from my flight in New Bern, the only restaurant took cash only, the airline rep put me in a taxi to Greenville, NC, probably 40 minutes or so, because he could not find me a guaranteed flight out of Charlotte if I took a later flight from New Bern. I had over a 3 hour wait in Greenville. In New Bern, they did an additional security check on my shoes, these were flip flops, really? In Greenville, they did an additional check on my carryon bag and threw my toothpaste away, it was over 3 ounces, it had passed other points, no restaurants in Greenville, NC airport, only vending machines and 2 were broken. .Seating was pretty tight too! 3 hr for next flight"
