It was so helpful to be able to board the plane front and back. It makes it so much faster. It was also helpful announcements were made in French and English. I cannot thing of anything that would have made that short flight better.
Punti negativi: "Boarding was a disaster as my companion was selected for random search which held us up as there was no urgency to process us. Then there was no sign for where we should go since upper deck on 747 so we went in "economy" line as indicated on ticket and then was sent to correct line when we got to the front, wasting more time. The seatrs were the most uncomfortable I have ever beeon on for a long flight. I also paid extra to be in the exit row, to have people constantly congregating in front of us."
Punti positivi: "There is a nothing to mention that was memorable or comfortable."
Punti negativi: "I asked for an upgrade as we are on our honeymoon. The ground staff only wanted to get us on the plane and not try in anyway to recognize us. Our seats were very poor quality, you should immediately replace them! I would have rather stood than sit on the flight. The in flight entertainment is so poor. Absolutely disappointing especially with the head sets not working because of poor ports of connection. The food was absolutely tragic. You should fire your catering company. I expect more from your airline and I was disappointed all the way through. I hope you can provide my wife and I better service and an upgrade when we fly back to Washington DC on Flight AF 0054 from CDG to IAD. I work in the luxury hotel sector, and even the door men and room attendants have more autonomy to wow our guests. Flying AF does not want me to spend any more money with your airline in the future."
Punti positivi: "n/a"
Punti negativi: "The entertainment system was very old with minimum selection. My entertainment system actually stopped working. The seating area was very cramped. I called for service a couple of times from my seat, but nobody came."
Punti positivi: "Nothing"
Punti negativi: "They have a terrible communication problem, they never communicated why the flight was late, they never communicated what they were doing or what was happening. Bad customer service. Bad communication with the client. They told us when I asked several times that we would not lose our connection and that everything was fine and that was not the case. We lost the connection. No one told us anything. Another problem was that the girl in the boarding process removed the suitcases tickets from the boarding pass and did not want to return them, and held it without any cause. Without that tickets we can not claim the bags. The flight staff went looking for us. Pretty sad and disappointed by their service. I understand that they were causes outside the airline but must communicate to the client. They cannot remain silent and say nothing."
Punti positivi: "Good selection of movies."
Punti negativi: "Had to use a shoe horn to get into and out of my seat and I'm not a large guy. But really my harsh criticism comes from the loss of my girlfriends luggage. It was left behind in Paris on our way to Casablanca causing us to waste a day in Casablanca traveling back to the airport the grab the bag the next day. And to add injury to insult her bag was left behind in JFK during our transfer for our flight to Seattle. No big deal right, Delta will deliver the bag to our house the next day, wrong, we were told we have to go to the airport ourselves to get the bag."
Punti negativi: "Sedile scomodissimo, bagaglio smarrito, é rimasto a Parigi dopo la corrispondenza !!! Pessimo servizio"
Punti positivi: "crew great comfortable"
Punti positivi: "ok"
Punti negativi: "spazi cibo"
Punti positivi: "Aereo partito abbastanza in orario, arrivato cmq in anticipo. Sedili adeguati con discreto spazio per le gambe. Snack e bevanda anche su volo breve (1:40)"
Punti positivi: "Perfetto."

Punti negativi: "mmmm"
Punti positivi: "Upgrade in business class da premier economy"
Punti negativi: "La puntualità, il volo è partito e arrivato in ritardo di 45 minuti"
Punti positivi: "Volo breve, ma aereo puntuale sia alla partenza che in arrivo."
Punti negativi: "Ho trovato un po' squallido il terminal 2G da cui e' partito il volo. Negozi distanti dal terminal e mediocri. Al terminal vero e proprio non so nemmeno se c'erano le toilettes."
Punti positivi: "Ottimo sia il tempo di imbarco che la puntualita' in partenza ed in arrivo. I sedili della economy sono sempre piuttosto piccoli e con poco spazio per le gambe, specie se sei piu' alto di 1.80 m."
Punti negativi: "La selezione di film e' abbastanza ridotta, soprattutto quelli in lingua italiana. Mi ha lasciato perplesso la scelta di passare un pasto alle ore 16 ( relativamente alla localita' di partenza) dopo aver fatto l'imbarco alle 13 e con un pacchetto di cracker nell'intervallo. Non c'e' stata cena."
Punti positivi: "The Air France service was ok. Got me to my destination on time and alive."
Punti negativi: "I flew out on KLM on what felt like a new plane. Amazing service, seat, temperature, entertainment and food. In stark comparison Air France’s plane was old, too hot, poor entertainment choices and system and average food which for the French was surprising!"
Punti positivi: "Not much expected as it was a budget trip."
Punti negativi: "Poor timing in between connections, barely made in time to my first connection being the last person to board"
Punti positivi: "Timely and smooth teansit."
Punti negativi: "Food has a way to go to be appetising."
Punti negativi: "Necessita inesire nel questionario la possibilita N/A"
Punti negativi: "La sufficenza della hostess nel servire il pranzo e la non conoscenza dei vini che serviva, servendone uno per l'altro, peccato, perche la carta vini era di ottimo livello."
Punti positivi: "Everything"
Punti positivi: "Friendly crew, good meal and entertainment"
Punti negativi: "Boarding agent forced me to check in my carry-on even though the carry-on fit in the cage and fullfilled all the requirements. I specifically called Air France prior to the flight to make sure I won’t have any issues as my 1st flight was operated by Delta and I wanted to confirm the luggage requirements were the same. My carry-on weighted only 5 kilos. I was extremely upset the way I was treated w/ the boarding agent behind the counter in Prague. On the top of that, her and the supervisor were very rude to my mom as they told her she had an extra carry-on which wasn’t the case. She traveled w/ a small briefcase where her mask for sleep apnea was. This is not considered an additional carry-on. The boarding agent (Czech lady and her supervisor) were not only rude but obviously lacked knowledge as well. My carry-on suitcase would easily fit in the overhead bin plus there was plenty of space inside the plane as it the flight wasn’t completely full."
Punti positivi: "1. Entertainment - Decent movie selection. I wished the angle of the screen in economy could be adjustable as well. Turkish Air does it better. Once the seat ahead of me reclines I dont have too much hope of saving my eyes from the awkward angles."
Punti negativi: "1. Boarding - Learn from maybe Turkish Air who allocate people zones based on where you are seated in the plane. People seated all the way in the back should be allowed to board first and fill the plane back to front. Makes it less likely for you stand around waiting for people as well people all the way in the back making contact with every possible human already seated in the aisles. 2. Comfort - Window seats are too hot, middle aisle seats are too cold 3. Thankfully they do have halal offering. Now if they will even let me choose that I am allergic to seafood. Glad for the chicken. Nothing to boast about."
Punti positivi: "Food was good and again, staff were friendly and professional. Flight was on time and efficient dis-embark mentioned."
Punti negativi: "Slight issue with headphone connection, was not the only passenger."
Punti positivi: ". Budget airline with no legroom or extras"
Punti negativi: "See above. Nothing specific to like."
Punti positivi: "Puntualità"
Punti negativi: "Per imbarcare un passeggino un'Odissea al Charles de Gaulle 2, con personale di terra scortese ed inaffidabile e un giro dell'aeroporto per trovare dove imbarcarlo. Davvero pietoso. Personale di volo affabile e cortese, atterraggio non morbidissimo. Panini al formaggio di capra e lamponi incommentabili."
Punti positivi: "The free glass of red wine when the plane finally took off."
Punti negativi: "The flight was delayed. We were told that it was just a half an hour delay by the man that was informing us of the delay and then we were then told by a woman that it was going to be over an hour. We weren’t told any specifics of why the plane was delayed, other than: “ the engineers are looking at the issue now”. We received messages saying that the flight was cancelled but then we were told to ignore that. We were told that we would have an update every 10-15 minutes but by the time we had the next update was 1 hours later, we were told that the plane will depart at 15:50- which we did. But we also sat on the plane for an extra 2 hours or maybe even more (couldn’t bare watching the time at this point) because the man that was supposed to push the plane backwards in order to reverse the plane didn’t turn up so we then had to wait for all of the other planes to take off before we could. Eventually the plane set off at 18:20 and I got in France 19:30-20:00 ish?"
Punti positivi: "Nothing"
Punti negativi: "Plane left 45 minutes late. No reason given either when waiting or after late boarding. I didn't eat as I tried to sleep byt narrow seats meant being woken constantly by fidgety neighbour. Fortunately the plane made up most of the lost time and I got my next Air France flight. This one was 50 minutes late departing."
Punti positivi: "Absolutely everything perfect."
Punti negativi: "Through my own fault I ordered a different seat instead of window seat. :)"
Punti positivi: "Boarding was on time"
Punti negativi: "flight was delayed by 20 minutes Boarding got me through Sky priority quickly. Had to then wait in the boarding tunnel as the cabin was not ready. large queue Seats were exactly the same as economy so offered no added benefits apart from the meal on board parked in a distant area of the terminal and had to shuttle bus to 2E which meant a very tight transfer"
Punti positivi: "Niente"
Punti negativi: "Tutto. Dall’imbarco alla sbarco, Air France e’ una schifezza unica."
Punti negativi: "Flight was delayed 3 times and when I was finally put on a flight that was leaving, they failed to check the connection in Paris (Left me 10 minutes to get from the aircraft to the other plane!) I was moved to SAA in the end after a truly traumatic time in Johannesburg. This is not the first time I have suffered at the hands of Air France sadly. Needless to say, I wont be booking with Air France again."
Punti negativi: "Peccato che arrivi allo scomodissimo terminal G dell’Aeroporto Charles de Gaulle."
Punti positivi: "Plane was clean. Pilots made up some of departure delay time in the air between NCE & CDG."
Punti negativi: "Unorganized boarding process and minimal info or announcements regarding delay. Failure to respect SkyPriority status at boarding were disappointing. (Staff allowed it to be a bit pushy and chaotic and people were able to force their way in line, ahead of those who had been waiting in line.) Seats were okay but no recline and underseat storage was small. (Backpack wouldn't fit underseat and had to be stored in overhead.) Passengers crowding from back of plane upon arrival made it hard to deplane and felt rude."
Punti negativi: "Movies were dated. Crew spoke limited and broken English, not good enough for international flights."
Punti positivi: "I didn’t actually liked the entertainment"
Punti negativi: "I just didn’t enjoy the entrainment."
Punti positivi: "Offering a drink on such a short flight is appreciated albeit unusual these days. Crew was very professional and friendly."
Punti negativi: "My seat was changed without my permission. Very unprofessional staff at Mumbai airport"
Punti positivi: "Everything was very prefect and would love to fly again."
Punti negativi: "NA"
Punti positivi: "Hospitality of the flight attendants"
Punti negativi: "Toilets could hv been cleaned more often"
Punti negativi: "Some toilet facilities out of order and some slow service"
Punti positivi: "Aeromobile comodo e personale davvero professionale"
Punti positivi: "Option to upgrade seat which I didn't take but might for outbound red eye flight in future."
Punti negativi: "Faulty toilet meaning longer queues for the loo. Crew were a bit haphazard in serving food and my row was missed out for coffee after dinner."
Punti positivi: "Boarding and punctuality."
Punti negativi: "Lagos boarding with rather annoying wait due to repeat hand check. Perhaps added security carried far."
Punti negativi: "The air France flight was overbooked and we had been in standby until the last minute"
Punti positivi: "Crew was great."
Punti negativi: "Food could be a bit better. White bread is unhealthy."
Punti positivi: "Staff was responsive, effective and pleasant; Nice selection of digestifs too. Food was decent and, in airline level, even good."
Punti negativi: "The audio system is outdated with unreliable touch-screen that makes it frustrating to navigate."
Punti negativi: "Freezing"
Punti positivi: "Amazing service, seat and FOOD"
Punti negativi: "Nothing"
Punti positivi: "Good seat near the front."
Punti negativi: "Delayed arrival by 30 minutes."
+ Equipaggio sempre allegri e felici + Interno aereo nuovo e pulito + Buona attenzione alla disciplina anti-COVID - Partenza in ritardo inizialmente per problema staff, poi valigia da scaricare per passeggero mancante, finalmente per problema attrezzatura aeroporto. Una storia… - Postazione 26F molto ristretto con poco spazio per i ginocchi, bracce, sotto la sedia davanti. sono nella media per altezza (182cm) ma mi sentivo scomodo.
The company did not know how to handle COVID bureaucracy efficiently or even correctly. We were asked to fill in four forms when only one is needed or even checked at all. I had to come in early to the airport, take a COVID test and then wait in the airport departure lobby for almost 1h to check in while waiting for the test results. Given that I spent a substantial amount to get a business ticket, I expected my time to be respected and to have business facilities made available. Once reached, the lounge now has an ordering system instead of self-service. The food was honestly disgusting, cold boiled rice without any salt and some "Spanish chorizo chicken" that had no chorizo and tasted like boiled chicken dropped in reheated tomato sauce. The plane departed one hour late. The business class seat was small, but comfortable. The company sent a boiler plate email apologizing which is something you appreciate the first time and it becomes grating when you get more than one per week.
Punti positivi: "Great crew"
Punti positivi: "The flight attendant in our long flight, London to Hoiston, was extremely nice and took very good care of our section. The seats were not all that comfortable: you could feel there was minimal padding on mine and my partner's neck rest wouldn't stay up."
Punti negativi: "We were shocked to learn there were no outlets on the long flight from London to Houston. Luckily we had a power bank, otherwise our phones would've been dead."

Punti negativi: "Il ritardo di più di un’ora della partenza è inaccettabile per una compagnia aerea come la BA"
Punti positivi: "The crew was enthusiastic"
Punti negativi: "No m&s sandwiches on board, half filled tea cups (even when asking for no milk)"
Punti positivi: "short flight, no issues"
Punti negativi: "nothing of importance"
Punti positivi: "Great consideration from cabin crew."
Punti negativi: "The worst flight I took in years. A dated airplane, with seats uncomfortable and worn off, an inflight entertainment system that looked straight from the 90s. We had. 1:20h delay ( announced on board ) on departure as the engine had to be repaired and replacement parts installed."
Punti positivi: "Cleanliness of the plane, comfort on board"
Punti negativi: "Totally unpolite personnel at Heathrow airport. We were at the beginning of the line, but they forced us to check-in the cabin bag, asserting that the flight was packed and there was no space available. The girl that was checking our ticket didn't answer our questions regarding the reason, and told us to speak with her boss. Her boss told us pointlessly that our bag was chosen randomly. In the end, we had to put in a little plastic bag everything valuable we had in the baggage, though on the plane there was plenty of space available in the overhead lockers."

Punti negativi: "Very disappoint as British Airways company. No difference with low costs companies."
Punti positivi: "Poco"
Punti negativi: "Il volo con 45' di ritardo (una consuetudine guardando i giorni precedenti). All'arrivo ancora attesa all'interno del aeromobile, perché il terminal non era pronto. Nel 2018 è inaccettabile, i mezzi di comunicazione esistono e funzionano. Assurdo!"

Punti positivi: "la puntualità"
Punti negativi: "la difficoltà all'imabrco per l'eccesso di bagagli a mano. avrei oreferito un imbarco forzato in stiva per un certo numero di passeggeri (io ero gruppo 4 e probabile canditato ...) perchè troppe persone portano come secondo bagaglio item troppo grandi e invece di inserirli sotto i sedili li devono mettono nei comparti overhead. non ci sta più nulla! il personale èstato comunque premuroso e gentile (con con grande professionalità) riducendo il fastidio. era venerdì sera."
Punti positivi: "la puntualità"
Punti negativi: "volendo essere critici durante la notte ua tutti i costi n maggiore servizio di bevande sarebbe stato aprrezzato ma ho comunque dormito parecchie ore e forse ho perso dei passaggi"
Punti positivi: "Crew were lovely, although they never came back to do a second drink service and didn’t answer call button, so anyone in PE had to walk back through Coach to get a drink. Not great. Food was tasty."
Punti negativi: "Premium Economy barely worth it and not as advertised - no amenity kit, in flight service identical to Coach (except for upgraded meal), seat super uncomfortable with an awkward footrest and a non working headrest."
Punti positivi: "Spazio in più in larghezza e per le gambe. Vale il maggior costo."
Punti positivi: "Partenza in orario, arrivo in anticipo. Personale cortese"

Punti positivi: "we took off and we landed"
Punti negativi: "Checkmytrip kept giving different information about the flight. once on board with delay first officer said they would try to make up time. Soon it was all about air traffic control. said that FlightConnections would be working on flights for this with missed connections. not true - nothing done while we were flying, and landed"
Punti positivi: "Niente"
Punti negativi: "Non sono riusciti a farci stare seduti insieme, sedili rotti, tray rotto. Peggio di così?"
Punti positivi: "volo di per se tranquillo e staff eccellente"
Punti negativi: "in London city non c'è una Lounge di BA il volo è partito con 30 minuti e più di ritardo l'aeroporto è piccolo e trafficatissimo"
Punti negativi: "Old aircraft with limited space and entertainment (Business class). One hour delay on arrival."
Punti positivi: "The landig was the best I have ever experienced in 20 years of travels, I was then informed that the pilot was a woman :) great to see more female pilots around"
Punti negativi: "It was on Air Lingus not BA. No Entertainment -"
Punti positivi: "Nothing"
Punti negativi: "Seats didn't recline, no entertainment, no beverage or food service. Delayed leaving and landing and the ground crew couldn't find a working jet bridge further delaying the disembarkment. I almost missed my connection despite a 90 minite layover."
Punti positivi: "Very comfortable aircraft (I got a seat in the middle of two other people in economy class, but the seat was so comftorable I could sleep easily througout the whole flight) and very good service. Good wine selection. Not many movies, but good ones."
Punti negativi: "Food quality can be improved, although I had worse. I had to pay 70€ for 5 kg excess weight of my lagguage, usually other companies do not make me pay anything. Some delay in the boarding process."
Punti positivi: "Quite fast boarding process."
Punti negativi: "Had to pay 70€ for 5kg excess weight of my lagguage. I understand the aircraft is small, but my final destination was New York, and usually companies such as delta or emirates don't make me pay anything. No online entertainment, no food served, not even a bottle of water."

Punti negativi: "Ritardo su entrambi i voli1 ora per problemi a londra"
Punti positivi: "Everything was fine, food was better than expected, on time"
Punti negativi: "This was a connecting flight and they should allow extra time when changing terminals. 2 hours was BARELY enough with 2 20 minute bus rides and a huge line at security, to top it off, 1/4 mile of moving walkway was shut down for no apparent reason. These are Heathrow issues, not really BA issues."
Check in was horrible in Miami. The woman was rude and not helpful with the questions. There was nothing to like at the check in and there were really slow even for First class passenger like me.
Better, more recent entertainment selections
Punti positivi: "I managed to slip ahead a couple of rows into what I guess was a slightly upgraded seating area. This resulted in my flight being very nice. But had I not been able to pull off this minor theft, I think it would have been miserable. Sitting up straight, without the seat ahead of me reclined, my knees touched the back fo the seat in front of me. It felt like I was sitting at a table in a kindergarten classroom, not a chair meant for an adult. In the upgraded seat I was very comfortable. Staff on board was friendly and helpful throughout the flight."
Punti negativi: "I haven't flown American Airlines in quite a while and one gets quite spoiled flying on Emirates or Qatar or Singapore or Norwegian or whatever other airlines. It's easy to forget how utterly mediocre AA is. The food isn't great, the air quality on the flight is terrible and leaves you feeling oily. They don't air-condition the plane until after everyone is boarded so the whole process is hot, sweaty, and unpleasant. Many of the staff are flat out rude to people (I was never on the receiving end, but I overheard what I considered very abrasive tones to others). And so on. Ideally I'd fly on other airlines I think."
Punti negativi: "The terrible communication for delays and boarding."
Punti positivi: "The crew was slow. Granted, the plane was full and the crew had many passengers but service was slow and cursory."
Punti negativi: "Flying economy on American Airlines is very unpleasant. The seats are too small-the aisles too narrow and the bathrooms incredibly tiny. Only 2 bathrooms in economy for a tremendous amount of passengers. I had requested a bulkhead seat because of hip surgery. I had to purchase it."
Punti negativi: "Seat pitch was too tight, especially when the person in front of me pushed their seat back."
Punti positivi: "Nothing!!! This was a horrible flight experience!!! I will never use American Arilines again especially their Barcelona connections."
Punti negativi: "I would never use American Airlines again. Horrible service at the check-in service at Barcelona Airport. I travel around the world for work and each year I fly to more than 12 international locations but never had a horrible experience like this. My carry-on bag is 21” carry-on bag that I traveled in more than 20 countries for the past 3 years but American Airlines staff members at the check insisted that my carry-on bag does not fit the FAA regulations and they threatened me multiple times when I protested their attitudes. I am an avid traveler and I know my rights as a traveler but the American Airlines staff members were extremely rude and insisted that I have to check-in my carry-on bag. The real issue was that regardless of the size of the carry-on bags, they were forcing almost all passengers to heck-in their carry-on bags a clear indication of money-making scheme. When I protested their attitude, they threatened me saying that I pose a security risk and that they would not check me in but I stabbed my grounded insinuated that my bag fits the FAA regulations. I booked this flight from Bristish Airways and this was a code shared flight, I called British Airways in December 22nd and confirmed the measurements of my carry-on bag but when I told American Airlines about the Bristish Airways, they told me “they don’t care, this American Airlines not British Airways”. It was humiliating, it was disrespectful, and it was unacceptable!!!! At the end, I removed one sweater from carry-on and the issue was resolved but after this experience, I will never never fly with American Airlines and never recommend anyone to use American Arilines especially their Barcelona flights and connections."
Punti positivi: "Solo la cortesia di uno steward italiano"
Punti negativi: "Tutto, assurda l’assenza di on board entertainment"
Punti positivi: "Niente"
Punti negativi: "No schermo per visione film Qualità del cibo scadente Servizio a bordo mediocre"
Punti positivi: "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."
Punti negativi: "Very limited food options."
Punti positivi: "Chocolate ice cream and pot pies"
Punti negativi: "To start, I had paid extra to upgrade to a seat with more leg room only to find I had been reassigned to the back of the plane. This was after I had already done an online check-in for the appropriate seat. Then I was told by the AA agent at the desk that my upgrade was in the system but that it was “fake”. Apparently the money I paid two months before was no good on this flight. I was traveling with my boyfriend and they would not allow us at the same counter because we were not married. After much haggling we were finally able to rectify the situation. Horrible start. Then, once on the plane, the in- flight entertainment system as well as the lights broke right before take off so there was nothing to watch or see for an almost 8 hour flight."
Punti positivi: "Arrived ahead of the scheduled time"
Punti negativi: "Plane was less than half full yet the crew appeared pressured .... one crew member didn’t wait for me to complete my request and she brought me eat phones yet I wanted to ask for water to drink! Seats don’t recline much ...."
Punti positivi: "Relatively comfortable plane, great movies (I watched four!), good timing between meals/snacks."
Punti negativi: "These planes are always SO cramped. We paid to be in the section with 9 seats across instead of 10 which was worth it but wish that they would just give everyone slightly more space - seems humane for such long flights! The group boarding on these huge planes always seems chaotic. Also it seems like it would honestly make more sense to start at the back and move forward. Would have less waiting for people in front of you to get settled. Wish the last snack had a piece of fruit or something with a bit more healthy aspect."
Punti positivi: "This plane is much better than the American Airlines plane I usually get stuck with on my 8 hour direct flight from JFK to MXP. Please stop using the Boeing 767 jets and only use the Boeing 777 for flights across the Atlantic. I would like to fly American more frequently but not if I think I'm going to get stuck with the planes from the 1980s where there's no personal TV, no place to plug in my phone or electronics to charge unless you carry around a car charger, which I definitely don't, and there's no WiFi on those planes either."
Punti negativi: "Boeing 767 Jets! The food is blah - Delta and Emirates is better. The entertainment needs a bit of an update. Or maybe I just fly too often..."
Punti positivi: "When I saw that our BA flight would be operated by AA, I was concerned, given previous poor experiences with American airlines. However, in this case, AA was pretty good, especially the check-in staff at Rome Airport who were excellent. The check-in, boarding and de-boarding processes all went well. Plane was relatively modern, with USB charging ports for phones. Movie selection was good, though the TV selection could be expanded. The food was ok. Seating not bad. All of our luggage, including a child's carseat, was delivered on time and intact. Pleasantly surprised."
Punti positivi: "Flight crew was nice"
Punti negativi: "Checking in, the counter agent first told us we would need a visa to go to the USA. We are American citizens. Then she insisted that we buy checked bag allowance even though our tickets already included checked bags. We had already flown the 1st leg with checked baggage, why would we purchase tickets with no baggage allowance coming home?! The stroller we gate checked was left at the end of the oversized baggage carousel because of the ground crew not wanting to unload gate checked items. I will never EVER fly an AA codeshare flight."
Punti positivi: "Asked a stewardess to turn the heat up and she did."
Punti negativi: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Every person I could see was wrapped up in their blanket before we had even taken off."
Punti negativi: "Food and drinks could be better"
Punti positivi: "Crew very friendly couldn't be more helpful. Food snacks and drinks good. Very efficient boarding system the best I've encountered."
Punti negativi: "Roof mounted tvs a bit disappointing and the films were just repeated. Coffee needs coffee in the cup, it was just milk and water no taste of coffee."
Punti positivi: "Good space in premium"
Punti negativi: "Female cabin crew were aggressive, discourteous and frankly rude to the passengers when they had to verbally communicate. I hear this so often with American cabin crew. When I started to experience this I became aware of the same trend in regard communications with other passengers. Very unattractive."

Punti positivi: "It was fine. Nothing extraordinary, just solid and fine"
Punti negativi: "Nothing bad in particular. The passengers could've been more friendly, but that's not the airline's fault"
Punti positivi: "Il cibo discreto"
Punti negativi: "Tutto scomodo, sedili stretti e scomodi, niente schermo Tv personale, aereo vecchissimo ma soprattutto un gran freddo. Tutti i passeggeri imbottiti e neanche dopo le ripetute richieste la temperatura è rimasta per tutta la durata"
Punti positivi: "tutto ok"
Punti positivi: "Imbarco"
Punti negativi: "Sedili scomodi e mancanza di televisore personale"
Punti positivi: "Very nice and genuinely friendly flight attendants and ground personnel. Flight arrived early, perfect landing and take off."
Punti negativi: "Kayak/webjet sent me the wrong check in code for the wrong airline operating my flight. I inserted it on the online form multiple times until I was blocked from doing so, and there was no link to communicate online in real time with anyone who could solve the problem. This was extremely stressful and unnecessary, as well as time consuming. It was not how I wanted to spend my final night in Italy. Furthermore, I had to wake up at 4 am to get a very early bus to the airport in order to check in early enough in person. NOT cool. The food was mediocre. The entertainment options were about the worst I've ever seen. My seat hardly went back at all."
Punti positivi: "Due to a strong tailwind we arrived 45 minutes ahead of schedule. Great service with attentive attendants. However the plane was older than me, no real entertainment system or outlets to plug in smart devices."
Punti negativi: "Plane needs to be retired or retrofitted to accommodate smart device charging."
Punti positivi: "The only decent point was the food. Not great but at least edible."
Punti negativi: "Since check in in São Paulo was a complete chaos. There were only 2 people helping on check in (in machines) and these people were still not helping people (like me) with questions about on how to do check in in those machines. On the other hand to dispatch the bags there were almost 8 attendants to receive the bags. Ridiculous! I’ve tried calling American Airlines and Latam several times to assign a seat for me and they swore there were only middle seats but I know how airlines work to make extra money on these seats. At the end, they only gave me a middle seat option and I had to take I.t of course. On the plane I realized there were dozens of empty seats and yet they made sure not give them to me or anyone else. Unbelievable! Unfortunately I still have to use AA on my way back to Brazil. After this, I’ll chose another airlines for sure. Also, the 3,4,3 arrangement is ridiculous: there’s no corridor space making people touching you everything someone passes by your seat. And boy! Those seats are so uncomfortable and there’s no way to incline the chair so you can even have a little rest (because it’s impossible to even sleep on those seats). The crew were simply doing their jobs! No pleasure! No smile! No engaging with anyone unfortunately! They looked miserable and I asked for water and the flight attendant NEVER brought me anything. Seriously! Water is free!"
Punti positivi: "Entertainment was good"
Punti negativi: "Flight was late, seats was small, all time something smelled so much."
Punti negativi: "I hate American airlines. It is the WORST. We were held for almost 4 hours waiting for "maintenance call" then flight was cancelled. THEN it took two full hours to get back checked bags. By ths point it was 5 pm, had been at airport since 8:30 -- no food offered, no apologies, not even a glass of water. Of course, no flights back to US so I was stuck an extra day, completely messed up school and work. I THOUGHT I was booking with Iberia but it was a code share. I WILL NEVER fly American Airlines again!"
Punti positivi: "Having flown many international airlines, I was proud to give American the highest ratings for quality and general hospital."
Punti negativi: "More up to date movies would help"
Punti negativi: "More than a 2 hour delay in Madrid for American Airlines to replace the seat harness on the Co-pilot's chair. This seems like an evolution that should never delay a flight if the proper preventive maintenance had been performed. Very little info was given and there did not seem to be any concern by the pilot or flight attendants once the flight was boarded due to the delay. I was very relieved, however, when we arrived at JFK and AA had a point of contact helping folks with close flights. We originally had 3.5 hours to make our connection to BWI, but due to the delay, had less than an hour to go thru Passport control, rescreening and entry to the terminal, but we made it. Thank you for the personal representative. I did not get her name, but she was very, very helpful."
Punti positivi: "Not very much positive to say unfortunately. The staff were good and did as much as they could to keep up feed and happy."
Punti negativi: "The plane was extremely old and dated. Never been on such an old plane with no up to date equipment or facilities. The chairs were very uncomfortable and the food was awful. There was no personal entertainment screen for an 11 hour flight and only one of the safety demonstration screens was working during take off. Also no plugs at all."
Punti positivi: "They offered pretty decent food and snack options that were included in the flight- the high quality chocolate ice cream was an especially nice touch as well as the included wine. My seat appeared to have more space than the flight previous to it, so that added a lot more comfort without the extra expense of having to pay for the "more space" seating- I often feel like airlines nickel and dime you to death these days. Perhaps it was just the luck of the draw, but the seats had much more legroom than my first flight to Paris as opposed to the return to NY. The flight crew were all courteous and pleasant. Leather seating with readily available pillows and blankets for all was a nice touch as well."
Punti negativi: "Having to use communal screens for watching movies and shows, having no choice as to what was displayed, having trouble seeing everything displayed (too far and small to see nuance in dark scenes and print on screen), having only one bathroom mid plane."
Punti negativi: "Trying to make any changes to the booking or check in was horrible. Because this was booked through kayak, then through an agent, then ultimately an Iberia booking on a British Airways / American flight, it took about 5 rounds of phonecalls being passed to another company or another department to get anything done. Sure the flight was cheap, but 6 hours of phone calls to get anything done is unacceptable. The plane used for this flight is ancient. Very tired seating, and no seatback entertainment. One children's film shown on the central TV screen followed by old sitcoms....For a transatlintic flight, this is really poor."
Punti positivi: "The movie selection was good, although it was in Italian. The drink selection was good. Thanks for the pillow and blanket."
Punti negativi: "I began flying when airline attendants were called airline stewardesses. Their personality plus attitudes and attention to detail reflected on the overall image of the airline, and did not make me feel like a second rate citizen in a second class seat. I've noticed over the last decade-plus that this has changed. I've been rudely spoken to for reaching for a napkin off the cart as I was not given one with my drink. My elbow was hit by the cart as it moved from back to front of isle, and no apology followed. The garbage was collected moving back to front, so I had to get the attention of the attendant after she flew by me. I thoroughly researched the size of the suitcase required prior to flying, and bought a new one to meet the requirements. My suitcase did not fit on American Airlines. Why am I bringing up American Airline? When getting to the airport in Milan, Italy, 2 1/2 hours prior to flight departure, I approached the British Airway counter. As no one was there, I proceeded to believe I was too early, so I had breakfast. I again approached the British Airway counter and still no one was there. On my way to the bathroom, I found the flight board and followed the directions. I searched for British airlines at the gate I was directed to, but was unable to find it. I asked an attendant, and I was directed to the American Airline gate. It was very confusing. It would have been nice if there was a sign at the British Airways counter directing its customers to American Airlines."
Punti positivi: "I was surprised by the amount of room in the economy cabin."
Punti negativi: "Check in very slow! The computers used for passenger self check in didn't work well. It took 6 attempts to read my passport, it never did read my green card, wouldn't accept my frequent flyer number. Other passengers were similarly frustrated. The attendant couldn't have been less helpful. I joined a line to check in with a counter clerk. The counter positions were seriously understaffed. The clerks seemed to be working quite slowly and were quite unconcerned about the growing line. I'm glad I checked in early for my flight!"
Punti positivi: "Flights on time and entire flight was a good experience for my 18 years old son to a first flight on his own."
Punti negativi: "Maybe a better food choices"
Punti positivi: "The entertainment and food on the flight were excellent and the crew were kind and attentive."
Punti negativi: "The only thing I didn't like was that there wasn't much legroom in the economy section. Another problem - which is probably related to Heathrow airport and outside of the crew's control - was that the staff at the airport rushed us tremendously during boarding, saying that the flight would close half an hour in advance. I had never seen boarding close that early and it was very frustrating, because the boarding then took a very long time, since they searched us for no reason, and our flight ended up taking off 30 minutes late! As passengers, we felt very rushed, it seems, for no reason."
Punti negativi: "Aereo vecchio"
Punti positivi: "NOTHING"
Punti negativi: "This had to have been among the worst flights I have ever experienced in 50+ years of flying to 86 countries. First, an e-mail before I left my Paris apt that it would be 1 hr late departing. THEN the announcement ON BOARD that the flight would make a REFUELING stop in Bangor Maine (the eqpt was a 20 yr old 757 meant for a medium-range domestic route instead of Paris-NY). So it was FOUR HOURS LATE arriving, including an extra hour on the ground in Bangor because they'd lost their landing slot (tho they lied about "bad weather" at JFK) ... a succession of lies and incompetence. Headphone jack didn't even work at the seat ... the movie was a US film dubbed into French anyway! Gawd what incompetence. A letter Fedexed to Doug Parker, AA's CEO, was not even acknowledged.... and I do 35,000 air miles a year on AA. THE WORST."
Punti negativi: "The staff was rude not helpful and mean worst crew I've ever seen and I fly alot"
Punti positivi: "THis was an ok flight. Everything was on time and the crew was hreat. On the other hand, the food was terrible and the check in process was not expedite at all. The American Airlines crew did not know how to handle my G4 visa while checking in and they neglected to mark my bag with the orange ribbon signaling platinum status in American. This is key to getting your luggae faster in baggage claim when you have a short connection (I had less than two hours). This omission caused my suitcase to arrive last, and I had to run to make it to my next flight."
Punti negativi: "States above"
Punti negativi: "Airline throughout mentioned connecting flight passengers are okay as the flight will land almost at the scheduled arrival time but once onboard bluntly announced that we don't have further information. This is cheating"
Punti positivi: "The meals were excellent -- well timed distribution of food throughout the flight. Attentive staff. Good choices for meals and beverages. I liked the fact that we got ice cream halfway through the flight also, that's not a very common thing! Entertainment system was very good -- lots of choices of things to watch/listen to! I was pleased to find that there were movies available that had been very recently released that I had been wanting to see!"
Punti negativi: "Comfort was okay, my seat was on the end of a row with three seats (aisle side) and immediately behind me was a row with only two seats. Without fail, the flight attendants bumped their carts into my chair EVERY time they passed. If I had been trying to sleep, this would be much more of a disturbance to me. Seeing as I was just watching movies and enjoying the food, it wasn't that much of an issue. However, I think it would be easy for the flight attendants to just take a second longer to try to navigate around the chair and not bump it every time. Little things like that go a long way, especially on a long flight."
Punti positivi: "nothing. seriously I have NOTHING good to say about this trip"
Punti negativi: "We boarded or flight just a few minutes late initially then had to taxi back to the gate to fix AC(?!) electrical issues, which were seemingly fixed just as we started to de-plane. Then after a slew of nonsense announcements about waiting for a new pilot, redirecting the destination, and basically misinformation about reboarding, we are told that the flight MIGHT be canceled; It has been nothing but one excuse after another and honestly after a 4 hour delay with no real answers, I really cannot find any reason to fly this airline ever again. Such poor service."
The flight crew was very attentive and nice, but the ground crew sadly wasn’t, the overall experience is I WOULD NOT, again NOT TRAVEL with TAP Portugal… We where supposed to board at 11am and started at 11:40 with minimum to non-coordination…
food was awful and were told if food is left then you will get it else good luck and so we stayed hungry. seats were uncomfortable and actually hurt my back. so much for first class
Punti positivi: "Service was great and the airplane was very well maintained."
Punti negativi: "More water, I was thirsty most of the time."
Punti positivi: "TAP HAS THE MOST COMFORTABLE SEATS THAT RECINE VERY VERY FAR."

Punti negativi: "I am used to traveling continents with other companies. There has always been 2 check in bags allowed with no extra charge as long as you are under 23kg on each. I get to the airport with my 2 bags ready, TAP tells me on large holidays, they only allow 1 bag to be checked to my specific African destination until January 11. And that one bag will cost me $120. They will not let me have the second one. Who does that? How much sense is this supposed to have. I checked with others and they do not do that. That rule rule is unfair and racist. Now that I am back, I have a bag missing. Wow!"
Punti negativi: "I had to pay to check the first piece of luggage 85€ one way. I was not inform of that when I bough the ticket and I could have chosen a different airline If I had considered that expense. The first piece used to be free intercontinental flights but now it varies depending on the company. I find difficult to find this information when buying and it makes a great difference in the final price you pay. I found strange flight attendants having a very loud conversation in a very quiet flight where most of the people were sleeping."

Punti negativi: "Though the weather was fine - no excuse - the 7 hours delay! the fact that instead of landing in Newark (my original reservation), we landed in JFK! VERY INCONVENIENT AND AN EXTRA EXPENSE! The fact that in Lisbon airport I had to wait more than one hour to reach the help desk and then plead to receive a voucher for refreshment (left Madeira on an early flight, no breakfast on that flight, the flight to NY delayed till 5 PM!). I chose TAP because it was the most direct way to reach Madeira - but the delays on both flights were more than unfortunate - it was simply poor service."

Punti negativi: "Too early in the morning. A better connection in Lis wil lhelp"
Punti negativi: "1) I tried several times while traveling but was unable to figure out how to choose a vegetarian option for the flight. When I called customer service, after a long hold time, the woman I finally spoke to told me it was too late to order vegetarian and refused to help me. I have never flown another airline (Air India, Turkish Air, United, American, China Southern, etc., etc.) that did not make this easy to choose during booking or check-in and that did not already have a standard ovo-lacto vegetarian option on the regular menu. Vegetarians practice for all sorts of reasons, including religion and health needs. It's unacceptable to make it so difficult to meet your meal needs while trapped on a plane for nine hours. 2) The check-in agent did not know the rule about all remaining seats being opened for passenger choice three hours before booking and insisted we had to pay to get aisle seats despite one of us having a health problem necessitating her standing up and walking every 45 minutes. Then another agent told us we couldn't choose seats for free for our Porto to Newark flight when we check in for our Madrid-Porto flight because it wasn't technically three hours before the Porto-Newark departure. But how were we supposed to choose seats for the Porto-Newark flight three hours in advance if we are in an airplane flying to Porto at that time? This makes no sense. Seats should be opened for every leg of a same-day journey at the same time. The agents were unhelpful and unsympathetic. 3) This was an old plane without options to choose a film or show to watch. Instead, passengers could flip through a few channels and hope to find something of interest that was already playing -- there was no way to begin a film or show from the beginning if you landed on it in the middle of its running time. I cannot recommend TAP Portugal to any of my friends, family, or colleagues after this experience."
Punti negativi: "I have traveled to and from Portugal in TAP for many years and never ever did I have to pay for a checked bag till this year. It is totally a robbery to be charging people for 1 checked bag of only 50lbs. not only is it ridiculous but robbery. You charge a lot of money for the flights as it is and to go and charge people to check a bag on an international flight is insane. It is to bad I have to fly back with you because I will not be flying with you ever again after this I will take my money elsewhere. Also you need to let people know that they are being charged for luggage when the are booking their flight because when I booked my flight nowhere did it say I had to pay for my luggage. It already was rediculous that we are only aloud 1 50lb bag checked and now you want people to pay for it too? Pretty soon you minus well have people just get on a plane naked!!"
Punti positivi: "Left on time, arrived early. Food and snacks were good. Very attentive crew."
Punti negativi: "Can't think of anything."
Punti positivi: "Employees are very nice."
Punti positivi: "since it was an older plane maybe it had more leg room"
Punti negativi: "poor quality video and sound for watching movies on long flight attendants were brusque and ignored most passengers(except the ones with special meals) we were on connecting flight with little time in between to grab water or snack - so we sat on this flight for over two hours before we got any refreshments. Some passengers got refills before we got one. Poor execution. we had to check two bags on connecting flight (which we didn't have to do before) and it cost us time and money. Also they lost the two bags - got several days after we got back from trip huge line at immigration - we waited almost two hours will not travel on TAP again"
Punti positivi: "Flight attendants were reponsive. Plane was comfortable enough. Good entertainment options."
Punti negativi: "Plane was a little warm. Would have liked more information in English."
Punti negativi: "Wouldn't let people approach the desk to ask questions before boarding. Crew very un pleasant and forceful throughout the trip. Would not look forward to flying with TAP again."
Punti positivi: "Time in the air was fine, efficient once we arrived in Newark and bags arrived fairly quickly. Check-in counter in Lisbon were a little tricky to find (around the corner with no signs posted...) but it was efficient."
Punti negativi: "The boarding process was ridiculous. Went through security and then a second security screening at the gate when everything was gone through for a lot more than random folks. Then getting on a bus to board the flight instead of a jetway? I thought TAP was Portugal's national airline and had priority space at Lisbon..apparently not. No soap in the bathrooms on the plane! Ran out of diet soda (and we weren't at the back of the plane). On the way over, the flight attendants gave us conflicting instructions about our toddle sons's ability to sleep on the floor or on our laps. The entertainment system didn't work."

Punti positivi: "The food in Economy was way better than usual U.S. airline food. Ground staff in Newark were helpful in retrieving a book I left on the plane. Captain had the seat belt sign off early and turned it back on late in descent which allowed people to visit the restrooms. Video entertainment was good."
Punti negativi: "Captain should have made more P.A. announcements during the coast in over Cape Cod to point out areas of interest"
Punti positivi: "Center aisle seat was comfortable and pnethy of room for my carryon overhead and underseat."
Punti negativi: "I would like to see all TAP planes come with a standard entertainment option on the headrest in front of you with the advanced menu option of movies, games, radio, etc. and ensure all headphone jacks are operational. (Thisnflight the screen was messed up...not something you want to look at for 8 hours. ) I couldn't eat half the food because the salad wasn't anything but cabbage and a tomato and the corn and meat dish was cold and weird. I don't know what the dessert was but I got it down. I think the sandwich I got before landing was pesto and mayonnaise but I'm not sure. I didn't get much of it down before gagging. I wish when booking a flight you were given the menu or you could choose early in the flight and then be served. I bet it would cut down on wasted food and money."
Punti positivi: "Just about everything"
Punti negativi: "The connecting flights with BLUEJET"
Punti positivi: "The crew is always professional and keeps you informed of what changes there are."
Punti positivi: "The seats were comfortable and already stocked with a pillow and blanket for all. we each had a personal screen stocked with movies, music, games and flight info. at no additional cost and that was great for passing the time during a long flight from Lisbon to NY. The crew was the best part, so pleasant and helpful and professional. We were instructed to close the shades and were allowed to sleep and woken up for the custom form and the great meal which had the option of soda or wine, etc. at no additional cost. The quality of the food was impressive and the salad even came with a packet of real Portuguese olive oil and vinegar. When appropriate we all had to open the shades and drinks were served again and later a small snack of a sandwich and a juice were given all in perfect timing."
Punti negativi: "I found it very frustrating that we were told at the ticket counter the boarding would begin at 11:15am for a 12:45pm flight time. I arrived at the airport over two hrs in advance and then had to run a significant distance through the airport and sweat and be unnecessarily anxious waiting on the customs line only to arrive at the gate at 11:20am, to have my bags checked for a second time and then be unable to get any food or coffee before a flight that did not begin boarding for another 40 minutes. I did and still do not see the need for that additional luggage/security check and then being held at the gate for almost an extra hour for seemingly no reason at all."

Punti negativi: "crew onboard seemed super tense and it was just awkward with them. It was a short flight, maybe they've had a long day but it was weird. biscuits and a beverage were offered - i think biscuits are gross maybe try pretzels or something healthy?

Punti negativi: "Checking in and luggage drop off was chaos. One useless staff person failed to tell people where to line up to drop bags off until the end. She just stood there and if you asked a question she gave you the wrong answer. In Newerk we had to wait 2 hours for our bags. The man st the AC office had no idea why the bags were not coming and could not get someone to tell him and emotionally dithered and then fell apart. I will avoid travelling on AC again if I can. Worst flight ever. They did not have enough food on board either. At least the pilots were competent."

Punti negativi: "Flight was on time"
Punti negativi: "After landing in Newar. One had to exit into the terminal and in order to connect, I had to go through TSA again, and the line was way too long. I had 2 hrs between flights and was able to make the connection, but I'm not sure if I only had one hour... I would have probably missed my connection."
Punti negativi: "Spend 45 minutes on chek in. Only tree people was working for whole airport. 5 min before I finely get to deck, they close check in and charge me extra 100$ for the next flight.

Punti negativi: "One flight attendant was rather unpleasant. When she asked my husband what he wanted to drink he asked "Can I have coffee?" Her repsonse was a firm "No.' Confused, he repeated the question and she again responded with "no." I had to ask her, "Are you not serving hot drinks on this flight?" I'm always shocked by this kind of behavior in some flight attendants. Why didn't she just say, "I'm sorry. We aren't serving hot drinks now"?"
Punti positivi: "Entertainment system. Flight crew."
Punti negativi: "The flight was delayed which is fine. I attempted to go to the desk for a food voucher but they didn't have enough workers and were focused on getting people with connections onto another flight and told me to wait. When we reboarded, we were offered vouchers for the airport we were leaving that would expire the next day, which is essentially useless."
Punti negativi: "a long 5 hr flight, they just give you a drink!!!!(they cant afford even a little bite?) Even at the time of the drink they bypass my line and we had to ask and she said sorry!! We did,nt get the usual boarding notification by e-mail 24hrs before??"
