The gate agent was incredibly rude. Did not communicate reason for delay and in fact delayed boarding
AA does not respect travelers. Booking flights and taking peoples money without plans to fulfill this obligation has been going on too long. It’s time for accountability.
The captain’s announcements were succinct, coherent, and brief—unlike the chatty confusing communications from the pilot on April 23, ORD to FCO. The flights got attendants were all very good, helpful, efficient, and friendly: I would single out as excellent an older white-haired lady, on both trips, for her cheerful and helpful attentions. The food was not as bad as it often is. Boarding in Rome was efficient and unstressful, and the over two hours going through immigration at OHare were the worst I have experienced in thirty years of frequent flights abroad. Can’t the airlines put some pressure to insure that the people at OHare can speak English at least as well as the personnel in foreign airports? My wife and I have agreed that we will in future foreign travel avoid returning to America at O’Hare.
40 minutes to board is excessive
The food was ice cold and poorly selected. Staff was pleasant as usual
On both going and come back from our trip the jet way broke. Costing us 20 minutes to get to the next leg of our trip.
Výhody: "A very pleasant experience, nice crew."
Výhody: "Crew was amazing. Very helpful and very happy."
Nevýhody: "Cannot think of anything at this time."
Výhody: "The crew was amazing, and the duration of flight time was reasonable"
Nevýhody: "Comfort of the seat, space between seats"
Výhody: "good luggage space overhead - accommodate wheelie vertically like books. each seat had indiv tv screen, recent movies, usb charger, 3 prong charger."
Nevýhody: "Never made it. Stranded at LAX."
Nevýhody: "American airlines needs to improve their inter hub options"
Výhody: "Access to diff. kinds of movies for entertainment, nice attitude from the crew"
Nevýhody: "Seat belt sign was on almost the entire time.. Would be great to have a better way to clean hands before meals as only option for us was the lavatory.."
Nevýhody: "did not deliver baggage to Glasgow"
Výhody: "They weee calm dealing with angry passengers."
Nevýhody: "Leave on time. Nearly 3 hours late. Horrible."
Výhody: "Crew on board was nice."
Nevýhody: "Boarding was very unorganized. I thought families traveling with kids would get priority boarding before main cabin."
Výhody: "Think I said this before. Up graded to 1st class because the flight to Miami was do horrible."
Nevýhody: "Seemed disorganized getting on"
Nevýhody: "Crew very good"
Výhody: "Both flight were on time and the crews were delightful"
Výhody: "Food wasn’t awful."
Nevýhody: "Late. Very. Delayed at departure, then parked on the tarmac for most of an hour, perhaps more, to get to a gate. several of the cabin attendants were very unhappy people, grumpy, snappish and harsh. Old plane, no frills. (Center screens for entertainment, no usb charging in main cabin) come-one—use this poor old guy for short haul stuff."
Výhody: "Loved being able to watch new release movies and many different tv showed plus being able to listen to music thought the flight."
Nevýhody: "Didn't like sitting in the emergency exit row next to the bathroom. Everyone uses it to stretch their legs and they end up standing on top of you most of the flight."
Nevýhody: "No individual TVs. I won’t fly without making sure my individual seat has its own!!!"
Výhody: "staff was nice, but check-in is clumsy and inefficient"
Nevýhody: "plane from Prague to Philly is ancient, still has the drop-down screens from 1981 and the radio station dial for listening in, but that didn't even matter as the video system was down for half the flight. No electrical charging capability unless you carry a car adapter with you. Overhead space was tiny. At least they had headrests, which is weird since the seats are obviously 30+ years old. Business class and first have been upgraded with new features."
Nevýhody: "Old overhead monitors for movies. Audio did not work at my seat."
Výhody: "The crew members were friendly."
Nevýhody: "Everything. The outdated planes need to be renovated with seatback screens. The entertainment featured on the aisle screens were unappealing. 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 lastly, the plane was freezing, even after turning off the air overhead. Everyone around me was huddled under their skinny blankets shivering."
Výhody: "There was ample food."
Nevýhody: "No individual tvs or phone chargers or in flight wifi available. Flight was delayed. Luggage was emptied onto a different carousel instead of the one that was posted. There was no announcement made of the carousel change."
Výhody: "Quick and efficient boarding, on time, when I asked at the gate for a window seat, I was accommodated. The food was very tasty and the flight attendants pleasant. Overall happy with this flight!"
Nevýhody: "It is impossible to sit comfortably due to the headrest that pushed my head forward regardless how I positioned it and removing it was impossible. There were no individual screens with in-flight entertainment and although I usually read or sleep, I can see how it would bother someone."
Nevýhody: "Boarding is always awkward on any airline. If you boarded back to front and deplaned front to back, time and aggravation would be reduced."
Výhody: "The plane was comfortable, and the stewardesses were friendly. The plane was not full, so it was easy to get board and deboard, the toilets were clean with no lines, and the entertainment was top notch."
Výhody: "You get what you pay for. I don’t recall the fair but this was a bargain and we were safe."
Nevýhody: "Not enough water served. More snacks please"
Nevýhody: "No longer free entries on board like before"
Výhody: "Ummmm the only thing I like is we landed in Maui safely. Pilots and crew seems friendly."
Nevýhody: "We almost this flight because the connection flight can't find an open gate to park the plane. Inside the air plane kids got hungry, we were ready to order $$$ meals and they said they didn't have it anymore. Seriously?! 6+ hours flight and no meal. Then I asked for 3 pretzel and they gave it to another passenger, so they only have 1 left supposedly!!! Come on!!"
Výhody: "Decent amount of bathrooms"
Nevýhody: "I was shocked that we weren't provided better and more food for an expensive and lengthy flight. Also there were no head rest tv's. They plane seemed very old"
Výhody: "First Class seating was of course better than economy."
Nevýhody: "Flight to Maui had no Mai Tai drinks available, no heated towels, no dessert, barely any service from the flight attendant(s)."
Výhody: "Comfortable seats, free private entertainment, very nice to be able to charge my devices. Our pilots were great."
Nevýhody: "Still don't like that you have to pay for meals or snacks. I received two meals on my connecting South American flight. Stewards still not all that pleasant."
Výhody: "Got to watch movies"
Nevýhody: "Couldn't eat the meal both had dairy no other choice"
Nevýhody: "For a customer-based service, I found it disturbing that one of the flight attendants was abrasive to passengers on this flight."
Výhody: "thay we didn't crash"
Nevýhody: "1. To didn't work 2. Give us pillows"
Nevýhody: "First class cabin smelled like urine and was filthy Does. It appear cabin was cleaned before flight was turned. Cookies and crumbs al over seat and in passenger seating area"
Výhody: "Liked how good he crew was"
Nevýhody: "How late the take off was and boarding and landing an hour later then expected"
Výhody: "When we arrived, we found the plane was changed, and our seats were in the middle, and separated. We had paid extra to have window seats.. After speaking to one of the gate attendant ( Arturo ), he went out of his way to accommodate us, and we ended up with great seats. Friendly and accommodating crew! ."
Výhody: "The flight staff had an amazing energy about them especially for 7am. They didn't do anything above or beyond but they extremely pleasant, energetic, and courteous. The pilots also pulled off the one of the smoothest landings ever."
Výhody: "Quick boarding and taxi. On and off the flight seemlessly."
Nevýhody: "I like milk. Also space out drink service and offer tea and coffee periodically."
Nevýhody: "Couldn't check in on line. Flight was delayed. Boarding was hectic and disorganized. Everybody ran for the gate. Crew was prompt and not friendly. Upon arriving they announced that they did not have the Hawai'i agricultural forms, so we would have to wait until the "agent" cam on the plane with the forms, fill out the forms, and then disembark. The crew was not organized, so it took about 10-15 minutes to get off after we arrived in the gate (late) because they could not get people sit down and fill out the forms. Chaotic. I plan NOT to fly American again. Ever."
Výhody: "We flew safely!"
Nevýhody: "The flight was delay. Then, my partner & I were given assigned seats separately until I requested seats together and we were given the last one at the back where you cannot recline the seat. It was very uncomfortable!"
Nevýhody: "They lost our baggage and communication was terrible"
Nevýhody: "Due to mechanical issues our 8am flight kept getting delayed in 30 minute increments until around 9:45 when the front desk attendants told us the necessary part had to be driven from Seattle and wouldn't be available until noon, and that their was no certainty the part would work, and that we should make other arrangements. So we did, but their earliest we could get us into Chicago was 9:30pm (original arrival was 2pm). We booked the arrangements only to find out that our original flight took off at 10:55 and American didn't even attempt to contact us. The cherry on top was that our flight (which was indirect through SFO) got delayed and we're now going to miss our connection in SFO. So currently looking at 10:30pm arrival in Chicago."

Nevýhody: "Our baby has broken leg with plaster cast and Cathay didn’t deliver our stroller to Hongkong so we had to carry him on the hands whole afternoon...this was unpleasant experience...also when we arrived from HongKong to Denpasar Bali we found that one of our suitcases was damaged broken :/"
Výhody: "I did not fly. Cancel month ago, no money back. No good company!"
Nevýhody: "I cancel month ago, no money back !!! No good company!"
Výhody: "It was a short trip of less than two hours. So, there was no entertainment, no charging stations for iPhones or iPads to watch personal electronic devices. All food including still water cost money. It’s advertised as this; the staff were very efficient and friendly."
Nevýhody: "A small pack of pretzels and free cup of water would have been nice."
Výhody: "Crew is incredibly kind."
Výhody: "Everything was just perfect. Thank you very much!"
Nevýhody: "Computers were working very slow on check in creating huge lines. We were not offered even a tap water for free on this flight."
Výhody: "Seat was comfortable"
Nevýhody: "Crew. Crew was very rude. I understand their day was difficult due to the delay, but it made it worse for passengers, many of whom missed or were about to miss connections"
Výhody: "Flight was fine, staff friendly and caring"
Nevýhody: "Transfer in Heathrow - they dont return your gate checked stroller at gate, they dont have loaners, lines are long and distances huge and with no stroller this is super tiring They dont even give free water or cold drinks on this flight and we were lare late due to air traffic at Heathrow"
Výhody: "The crew was outstanding."
Výhody: "The boarding and crew were fine."
Nevýhody: "I did not like the lack of complementary coffee or other drink for a two hour flight, especially at that time of the morning. Coffee was available, but only for a price, as were other food items. This was unexpected and certainly not appreciated."
Výhody: "The crew was sick and one lady kept running to the bathroom?!? The plane was old..."
Výhody: "Comfortable seats, good selection of food/drinks from the menu and courteous staff"
Výhody: "The flight was on time"

Výhody: "As always, a great flight."
Nevýhody: "Nothing I can think of."
Nevýhody: "Waited forever for the wheelchair come if they came on time I would of made it to my flight because they took over an hour I missed my connection flight to JFK"
Výhody: "Cabin crew from London to Heathrow was pleasant. Movie choice was good."
Nevýhody: "Ordeal at Heathrow of going miles up and down, taking two transports and having to go through full security again for connecting flight. Checked in 24 hours to connecting flight to London or 30 hours prior actual flight from London. Airline indicated that plane had only one middle seat. Tried to get a better seat at airport, but BA ground crew did not even check and said flight was full. Yet my one of my fellow passengers was able to get window seat without extra pay 3 hours after I was denied. Sardine city for 7 hour flight that turned 8 hours."
Výhody: "The plane"
Nevýhody: "To pay for WATER!!!!!"
Výhody: "The captain kept us aware of the delay and the reasons for the delay."
Nevýhody: "No free food or drink other than water."
Nevýhody: "The union bull"
Nevýhody: "Very uncomfortable seat for a business class"
Nevýhody: "No snacks for 8 hours. Crew inattentive."
Výhody: "boarding and timing"
Nevýhody: "fly attendants were kind of rude.. One completely ignore me while taking the order of the passengers sitting just next to me. The other one couldn't even say thank you when I did her job by bringing my garbage to her station. It was my first BA flight and I was not expecting those unfriendly attitude from british people."
Nevýhody: "A lot of stress: our 1st leg IAD to Dublin was cancelled, than we got 2 set of tickets rebooked. On the way back there was a stress since we had a "problem with the ticket" Apparently the Aer Lingus made all those mistakes."
Výhody: "The crew was caring and we were kept comfortable with blankets, pillows and headphones. The food was good, too, especially the cheesecake!"
Nevýhody: "There was nothing I did not like."
Nevýhody: "We flew with BA from Prague via Heathrow to San Diego on May 30 just day after they started operating normally after computer glitch. From Prague we were on time, When boarding in London started we were told to sit down again claiming Boeing 777 had equipment problem and they were waiting for parts to fix it. Our departure was delayed by 1 hour. Seats in economy class are really cramped so when seats are declined person behind can not eat without banging head into the back rest. Difficult to get in and out of seat as well. Arm rests do not come all the way up so one has to squat to avoid being hit by arm rest. Not very pleasant on 11 hour long flight. Joe"
Nevýhody: "I was annoyed that they charged for soft drinks and water on this flight. There was no entertainment. Just a seat on a plane."
Nevýhody: "The check in process from Prague to London to Dallas was inefficient. Too few agents, minimal direction from the representative guiding the line. Also, there were no food/beverage option unless you paid for them! No coffee etc on a 650a flight unless it was purchased. Ridiculous"
Nevýhody: "Prague to London flight First I was surprised and disappointed to find out there were so many extra fees. They get you to buy the ticket with a cheaper price and then hit you with all the extra fees e.g. choosing a seat, luggage, food, drinks, you will pay for everything except the flight. The second thing is that when I did go to the BA website on 5 different occasions to pay for my luggage and in order to get a cheaper rate for doing it online before check-in, it gave me a message that the site to do it was not working and that I needed to pay for it at the airport check-in. When I went to check-in at the airport the ticket agent seemed annoyed that I had luggage to check in when I hadn't registered it online. When I told her that the site was down and I wasn't able to do it before hand, she showed no sympathy or understanding. Instead she proceeded to charge me for checking my luggage. It was an outrageous amount of over $80 USD. I have never in all my travels around the world been charged for my luggage. I only travel with one carry on and one medium size check luggage because of my extensive travel. I know charging for luggage may be something more airlines will start doing but I did not think that BA would be one of them. I also would have appreciated some compensation for theirsite being down and not being able to get a discount on the fee because I couldn’t check it online. I am extremely disappointed with my BA experience and will never fly with them again. That is unfortunate for them since I am in the process of traveling around the world for the next few years while writing a travel blog and book. I will definitely publish my review and experience in detail, which I am sure will influence my readers and followers."
Nevýhody: "flight delayed over 1.25 hours because we missed our runway time due to being "unable to get a head count" of the people that are on board. This should be embarrassing for BA. And i don't understand how after all the security, boarding pass and passport checks that you do not have an accurate head count of your passangers. Thus I missed my connecting flight and had to wait over 4 hours for another and got a measly 10 Euros as compensation. Also, they don't even give water for free, and a 200ml juice costs 1.5 Euros which a) its bad juice and b) overpriced. All food you now pay extra for, and they didnt even make it in time to the last few rows so even if Id want to purchase something, I couldn't."
Výhody: "I was traveling alone with my baby. Everyone was very helpful"
Výhody: "Stewards were very friendly"
Nevýhody: "Need more opportunities for drinks, water. Did not board the back of the plane first."
Výhody: "Got there in one piece."
Nevýhody: "Older plane, no touch screen tv in head rest, no movies on demand, limited leg space"
Výhody: "Great experience"
Výhody: "Don't usually have a chance to fly BA in the USA. The flight crew were professional, courteous, and very friendly. They ALL looked so polished and well groomed. Some USA carriers should take a look. It makes a difference. Even their donning hats and putting on suit jackets on landing made an impression on me. Thanks British Airways."
Nevýhody: "Nothing Wonderful flight"
Nevýhody: "Took 1 1/2 hour to check in at counter. Agent spoke minimal english and directed Czech in one line and all others in another line. even when that line was only 2 or 3 persons and someone walked up only waited 5 minutes our line hardly moved. The agent did not care or understood that a lot of people may miss the flight. We arrived 2.5 hours early and barely made the flight."
