"very mean seat pitch"

(United Kingdom)

Very mean seat pitch. The guy in the seat in front of me reclined his seat immediately we were airborne and promptly went to sleep for the duration of the journey. I asked the steward if I was supposed to endure this for the whole flight - he sympathized but said he couldn't do anything about it. I was unlucky that I had an inconsiderate passenger sitting in front of me but I would only recommend AA to anyone under 5ft 2in and of a very slim build.

"there was no legroom"

(Greece)

B757-200 JFK-CDG route and the was awful. The aircraft was very old there was no legroom. I had requested a window seat but when I boarded the aircraft realized that there was no window in the 13th row and I was on the wall. The screens were out of order.

"seats grow harder"

(United States)

Took the same LAX to Heathrow flight four years ago nothing has changed just more worn out. The seats grow harder as the hours wear on and the recline is almost non existent. Stews were nice and the flight smooth.

"miserable flight"

(United States)

I got stuck in a bulkhead seat from DFW-EZE. I am 6'4" and 11 hours with no legroom to stretch out was torture. I had booked the seat behind mine (emergency exit row) but was given this seat at check-in and I failed to notice the change. Luckily it was relatively easy to climb past the aisle seat and get up and move around every hour or so. Miserable flight.

"very old looking"

(United States)

Very old looking compared to Continental and Jetblue's cabins. Seats weren't too comfortable.

"shabby surroundings - seemed grubby and old"

(United Kingdom)

Very cramped and the headphone socket didn't work (attendant very offhand about it - said they knew 15 weren't working and so no point trying to reseat me). Shabby surroundings - seemed grubby and old.

"filled with broken equipment"

(Canada)

LAX-O'Hare on the oldest 767 I've flown on in many years. Filled with broken equipment - backseat pocket falling off overhead door would not shut etc. This plane was so old that it had 4 drop down 12" TV screens in center of plane for movies for 30+ rows of economy!

"luckily the seat in front didn't recline"

(United Kingdom)

I'm 6'2 and found the seat just bearable but luckily the seat in front didn't recline - if it had I would have been in trouble! Very difficult to get out of row though in flight. Cabin dirty with seat pocket filed with wet magazines and rubbish from earlier flight. Seat Back TVs faulty (both ways) as film kept jumping back 30 mins. Service OK but food poor even by airline standards

"the worst seat I have ever had"

(Italy)

8 hour flight from JFK to Milano. This is probably the worst seat I have ever had on this sort of flight. 30" pitch is much too little for a transcontinental flight. Also the planes are not very clean at all and the food served is little to be desired. Would not recommend using this airline for this sort of flight to anyone.
