Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Originally, they were putting me on a flight connecting through Atlanta. However, I was traveling with my brother and there was only one seat on it. After looking again, we were put on a much better route through Detroit. I did not have a seat on the second leg and was stressed that I could get bumped. I made the flight but was given a middle seat. Since I have clostrophobia I began to panic. My brother sacrificed his exit row seat for me. He had booked through Delta. I wondered if he got better treatment because of that"
Pros: "Arrived ahead of time"

Cons: "Wait time because of Atlanta crowding.Re:hurricaine?"
Pros: "Professional, courteous, and responsive crew and attendants."
Pros: "The crew both going and coming from San Jose, Costa Rica were incredible."
Cons: "The long waits on the tarmac waiting on other planes to leave. Which was a big problem because it caused a lot of us to either barely miss our flight or miss our flight."
Pros: "Late, crowded, bumpy"
Pros: "Service was good. Was upgraded for more space."
Cons: "Intertainment unit was not working correctly. Locked up after movie was over. No offers of any sort from crew about issue."

Cons: "Having to find my boarding pass to deplane"
Pros: "Everything, smooth flight with an entertaining crew."
Pros: "Entertainment was good and staff was pleasant"
Cons: "Delta assigns seats at boarding, miss when you could pick which seats you sit in. I bought my sisters ticket, hoping we would then be able to sit together but we both ended up in the middle in different rows."
Cons: "delays after delays"
Pros: "Flight was late leaving JFK. I paid extra for Comfort Plus and had the most uncomfortable seat ever. My back ached during and after the flight. Absolutely the worst seat ever that I have had flying. While it was a short flight we were supposed to get serviced during the flight, but there was no cabin service unless you were in 1st class. So much for the perks of Comfort Plus as there were none. Not even a glass of water. Wow! When we landed late obviously because we left late we were late and there was no ground crew to get our plane to the gate so we sat for over 1/2 hour on the taxi way waiting for ground crew to be available for us to get to the gate. To add insult of injury when we did get to go to the gate there was no gate available for use so we had to deplane in the rain down the emergency stairs. They said that if you had a problem with the steep stairs that they would make other accommodations. Probably would have been another delay so we all carefully went down the steep slippery stairs. I doubt that the stairs met any OHSA or safety requirements except for emergency issues. They were wet and slippery. This was the absolute worst trip that I have taken with Delta. It will seriously influence my future trip decisions."
Cons: "Not being on time. Not delivering service stated. Sitting on a taxi way for extra time. Having to disembark down steep slippery stairs, basically an emergency exit. This trip was late from start to finish."
Pros: "Being able to watch movies"
Pros: "Pilots and crew did an amazing job during unstable air coming into Pittsburgh. Great job."
Pros: "Our original flight was delayed and Marika, at the Delta gate of another flight to the same city, was able to get us on the flight that was going to our city. We were so grateful to get home before the winter storm! We appreciate your staff and the help their quick, efficient manner to get us on a new flight!"
Pros: "Having just exited the AeroMexico flight that came across as unprofessional, it was refreshing to get on a Delta flight. It was not really exceptional, but it met my expectations. The Delta agent on the telephone on the day before our flight WAS exceptional, as she tried valiantly to get us checked in to a flight that had been changed (by Aeromexico) several times. Delta was also exceptional in helping us retrieve our luggage after AeroMexico lost it."
Cons: "The noise by the engines in the back section on the Delta flight was rather unbelievable. As a physician, I think it was likely physically damaging to our hearing. If this interior aircraft noise can’t be avoided, I think earplugs should be offered to passengers in those seats."
Cons: "Felt like I was sitting in my neighbors lap!"
Pros: "Liked that they were able to update our seats so we could sit together (spouse,baby,& I)."
Cons: "That the flight was delayed more than they informed us & it appeared that the gate crew did not know how to work the ticket machine & we waited to board with our daughter for 20 mins."
Pros: "Courteous staff, boarding process was okay once it got started."
Cons: "Flight was delayed 1.5 hours. Very turbulent flight. Tight seats."
Pros: "Almonds were very good as snacks. Flught departed ontime and arrived early. Checked bag arrived in less than 20 minutes."
Pros: "Every thing went well"
Pros: "very short flight, flight was comfortable"
Cons: "Plane was small so carry on space was at a premium, but everything fit"
Cons: "very few movies to choose from. China southern had dozens"
Pros: "Flights were on time and friendly attendants!"
Cons: "I felt too cramped in to the plane. Our KLM FLIGHT WAS CANCELLED THE DAY BEFORE THE FLIGHT."
Pros: "Great help from gate agent when a delay in connecting flight would have missed the last flight. Agent put a great new agent it together better than the original."
Cons: "Delta is the best"
Pros: "Flight was on time, flight crew was kind and helpful, pilot was smooth and kept us informed of the flight status."
Pros: "Crew was very professional and friendly."
Cons: "Seats too close together."
Pros: "Majority of the crew was pleasant"
Cons: "One flight attendant was EXTREMELY rude to me for no reason"
Pros: "Good do to Delta Staff"
Cons: "Because my earlier flight was delayed they put me on this one in a middle seat I had payed for a plus front seat"
Cons: "One crew member was running late. So we could not start boarding until she got there. Which created a chain reaction of events making the flight late. She was not a pilot. So why couldn't we begin boarding while waiting on her?"
Pros: "Delta always seems to have the most legroom between the seats - Even more than our transatlantic flight! The crew is always friendly and helpful, and nearly all our flights on Delta were on time or early."
Pros: "Reassignment was pretty easy."
Cons: "No accommodations were available for overnight stay due to delayed flight."
Cons: "Served some type of anything"
Cons: "I’m 6’3. My legs don’t fit in the provided space and I’m too tall for the head rest."
Pros: "I had a great seat"
Cons: "Food. No food at all on board per the flight attendees"
Pros: "Pilot was Awesome"
Cons: "The crew was eh not very friendly"
Cons: "AA seats are very small and narrow. The reclining part was uncomfortable. I prefer legroom and comfort at Delta Airlines."
Cons: "How about departing on time! Almost 3 hours after our advertised departure time is ridiculous!"
Cons: "Flight delayed twice and then had to wait on runway for take off"
Pros: "Nothing special."
Cons: "You cannot recline the seats."
Cons: "When my husband retrieved his piece of luggage, it smelled terribly lie dog poop. We had to drive home with the windows all the way down because the stench was so bad and throw away the suitcase I had just bought because of the terrible smell. Just awful to come home to that!"
Pros: "Seat was 9k. Comfortable"
Cons: "Plane late to take off because caterer was late"
Cons: "American changed our seats to back of plane. No explanation."
Pros: "Our flight attendant was delightful. Nothing special with a flight, as long as its was on time."
Cons: "On my first flight from SLC to ORD I asked 3 different American Airlines employees if I needed to pay for my carryon before I got on the plane. They all said no. I got on the plane, put my carryon under the seat in front of me and everything was great. I landed in Chicago, got to my gate, went to board and this very rude employee stopped me after I scanned my ticket and told me I couldn’t board with my bag. The EXACT bag I had boarded with in SLC. After harshly grabbing my bag and putting it in the carryon basket to check for size, she wouldn’t let me pass by her into the boarding bridge and told me I was going to have to pay. I tried explaining that I had asked I’m SLC if I needed to check it and they had all said no and that it fit under my seat. She said, “I don’t care what they said in SL, this is what I’m saying here.” And directed me to the front desk where I had to pay $50!! $50 for a carryon backpack that fit under my seat comfortably 20 minutes before!! Without saying a word (cause I didn’t want to yell at the poor girl behind the desk) I paid the $50 and proceeded to enter the bridge but before I passed through, the rude woman said, “have a nice flight ma’am” and scoffed!! An audible scoff. So I’m short, I hate American Airlines and I will do my BEST to not have to fly with them in the future."
Pros: "Good flight overall"
Pros: "They kept on schedule. We"
Cons: "I was not notified of flight changes and until I called the Airline my husband and I were intended to sit far apart. I booked this trip back in Jan. and we were supposed to be across the aisle from each other. We ended up in the last row of seats of both flights. We never knew of the changes until we tried to get boarding passes."
Cons: "I understand it happens,but after a long day of traveling it is very frustrating when the late night flight is delayed and you then have to sit in the plane on the ground for an extended period. Otherwise it was fine"
Cons: "I am not tall but there was no leg room. My knees were in the back of seat. And when passenger in front reclined???? Arggh"
Pros: "Flight was safe and uneventful"
Cons: "Limited space and I had a better seat Just beverage service - not even crackers offered No entertainment options Seat recline mechanism was faulty"
Pros: "I've recently had problems with other airlines in the past few years. It seems that flight attendants get more and more rude by the day! I had nothing but a pleasant time on both these flights though. Everyone was cordial and respectful!"
Cons: "Don't have a conplaint."
Cons: "I am very frustrated that a single part could not be located in the early afternoon to allow the plane to fly. I will be late again for work and it seems to be American Airlines and not Delta that has all the delays or is late."
Cons: "Too cramped."
Pros: "economy plus was worth the money"
Cons: "Flight attendants horrible refused to serve drinks or snacks due to "turbulence" But there was no turbulence. Then when passengers complained they served water only and splashed it into cups on the trays instead of pouring it into cups and handing the cups to the passengers. Nasty people."
Cons: "Flight was a half hour late leaving O'Hare."
Cons: "Missed because of first delay"
Cons: "Being so late"
Cons: "Do you even look at what happens after we pay for your services?"
Pros: "On time departure & arrival."
Cons: "My checked bag, which l paid $25.00 for, didn’t make it on the flight to Pittsburgh. It got there on another flight at 7:30 pm Monday night but no one from American Airlines did anything about trying to get it to me until 11:30 pm. As a result, while l stayed at a hotel only 30 miles from the airport, my bag wasn’t delivered until 2:00 am on Tues, more than 8 hours after l got there. And their website for supposedly checking on lost luggage, aa.com/bag status, is next to useless. It gives no useful information. Use the 800 # but state you want to talk with a human when answering the questions in their phone tree. I’ve had other experiences on AA over the last few years that lead me to question their commitment to customer service. I’ll be avoiding American Airlines as a travel option where other alternatives are available."
Pros: "The free movies were a generous provision. The American Airlines ad was cool. The screen to trace the flight geographically was neat, as were the details about height, temperature, time until landing, and so forth. The service people were nice."
Cons: "The space under the seats on the floor has gotten very small."
Pros: "Seats are terrible. My back hurts after the journey. Leg room is bad too."
Cons: "The changing of terminals in Philadelphia but was not the airlines fault."
Pros: "That we were able to get a seat on this flight"
Cons: "It was very crowded and no room to really move. The flight was rough in taking off and landing."
Pros: "Wheelchair was ready in La Guardia airport, but transfer from gate C to gate B had impossible stairs or shuttle outside. This option required another security check which was terrible. TSA personnel was rude and incompetent. In the end there was no need for such scrutiny and we were released, but the emotional impact lasted for hours."
Pros: "I had a weapon to check and found that one of the case locks had been broken. With only minutes to spare a Huntsville TSA bag checker donated a personal padlock so I could make my flight. 5 stars."
Cons: "Monotonal flight orientation. Follow a Southwest Airlines model and add some vigor!"
Pros: "Friendly Crew, short and easy trip."
Cons: "I wish that there were tv's built in, entertainment."
Cons: "Easy direct flight. No issues."
Pros: "Everything was fine---smooth flight, no problems until after landing."
Cons: "We waited 45 minutes on the tarmac for a gate before we could deplane."
Pros: "good timing"
Cons: "snacks and beverages..."
Pros: "They checked my carry on"
Cons: "Seemed unprepared my movie screen nonfunctional"
Pros: "why you have send email for survey I cancelled my trip do to emergency/ for sorry really sorry,"
Pros: "Snacks and drinks included. Was able to get my bag checked for free and pay a decent price for a last minute emergency flight. Crew was great and helpful"
Cons: "The price was more than I wanted to pay but it was not unreasonable."
Cons: "delayed so long we missed our connection"
Pros: "Arrived early"
Cons: "No gate available upon early arrival. Paying extra for aisle seats is ridiculous."
Pros: "The price was fair and the flights were on time."
Cons: "Bags cost extra, food cost extra, seats cost extra. My knees were in the back of the seat in front of me the entire flight (two exit row seats were empty) and there was no way to move that provided comfort. The overhead bins were full before half of the passengers boarded. The crew was polite, but not kind."
Pros: "Very friendly crew."
Cons: "Plane landed in Pittsburgh an hour and a half late because of mechanical issues. So that was inconvenient."
Pros: "Friendly-on time-love the charlotte airport"
Pros: "Boarding was easy and i had a great seat."
Cons: "It wasnt a long flight so there was no entertainment and minimal food."
Pros: "Limited overhead bag storage. Gates changed to more crowded area. Felt like we were being herded onto the plane. Hurry up, etc. clear the aisles that sort of thing."
Pros: "short flight so I would not expect any particular issues."
Pros: "Crew was very nice!"
Pros: "Flight was very late landing and we missed our connecting flight. As a result had to get a rental car in order to connect with our friends. Also it was a baby crying nonstop for the first half of the flight."
Cons: "Better timing on the flight connections."
Cons: "The flight attendant forgot to serve me."
Pros: "I am slow walking due to health issues. Coming from Kansas City to Chicago was a problem. My daughter who was with me is physically handicapped. There was no transportation to assist us to get from one terminal to another one when we arrived. Thank goodness we had a two and one-half hour overlay. Going home was a different story. Two wonderful gentleman met us as we disembarked and speedily got us to our flight. We only had 30 minutes and they made sure we were there. Issac and the other man are to be commended!"
Cons: "The fact that no one was there to assist us with transportation."
Pros: "Little to add."
Cons: "The plane was delayed incoming. Then boarding was interminably long because of overbooking and no overhead room for luggage. It took precious time to load passengers 1 group at a time while bags were checked. Once airborne I saw I only had 10 minutes or less to make my connection in Newark, which I inevitably missed. Poorly scheduled. Many passengers missed connections. It would have been much quicker and easier to advise passengers to check bags at the gate BEFORE the plane arrived knowing it was overbooked. I'm very disappointed in how the entire boarding was handled given the time constraints."
Pros: "Everything was fine"
Pros: "crew was friendly"
Cons: "Seats barely recline. No leg room"
Pros: "Crew was friendly, even if they were dealing with travelers who were cranky about it being so late."
Cons: "Twelve hours before the flight and they already knew that the flight would be delayed due to the inbound plane being later. One flight earlier in the day caused a delay for the rest of the day. So, our flight was three hours late in boarding, putting us into the final destination at 2:15 AM. Not cool, especially when travelling with children."
Cons: "do not see how the process is helped at all with those "lines or zones" Still seems like people get clogged up and takes too long to get boarded."
Pros: "Got to travel JetBlue for the first time which demonstrated the way an airline should treat its passengers."
Cons: "Never got on the United flight as United's inefficiency AGAIN caused significant delays! Still awaiting the reimbursement (or even communication) I was promised."
Pros: "the crew on the plane was pleasant and helpful. the pilot was very nice as well with made the flight smooth and delightful"
Cons: "we were not able to check in at the kiosk, it was saying that we need further assistance but wasn't giving any reason, nobody could help us with it. we were directed to different stands 3 times were people would just tell us they don't know what to do. the lines everywhere were extremely long with only 1 person working, the lady came up to the line at some point and stating assisting people in line starting from the back end of the line. That was very frustrating. she finally got to us, asked us to come up to the kiosk with her, wasn't been able to help us and then put us back in the end of the line! The lady who was able to help us in the end just said "it was just disconnected." I have no idea what it means but considering that on our way in we had to be on "standby" because the flight was overbooked. the total impressing from United is very poor."
Cons: "Broken Restrooms"
Pros: "The pilot was great. The smoothest take off and landing on the San Fran to Pittsburgh flight"
Cons: "The biggest problem I had was that the gate was changed and I wasn't notified. So I had to go from Concourse A to C, then back to A. Thankfully, I gave myself plenty of time and everyone was helpful."
Cons: "Flight delay"
Pros: "1st time flying United and was truly impressed. They were timely and friendly. I might have just found my new favorite airline."
Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "I shouldn't have had to pay to check a carry-on because the first flight was delayed."
Cons: "Will absolutely pay extra to never fly United ever again"
Pros: "Short flight so no need for food or entertainment, but the roomy seats were amazing after a long day of flying"
Cons: "Same as above"
Pros: "What a difference a plane makes. Traveling on the embraer plane versus the CRJ700 is night and day. I can't believe that the price is the same for these flights! There is entertainment available inflight. There is more room overhead, more room in the aisle, two bathrooms, on and on...this flight was so much better. I will make sure that I never book on the CRJ700 flight to Houston again if I can avoid it!"
Cons: "The flight attendant in first class didn't have the best attitude but it was ok."
Cons: "The cabin was very hot"
Cons: "Good -- but my flight from Pittsburgh to STL was not so good. My flight was delayed HOURS. I was supposed to get to my destination by 10pm. I did not get there until 1am. I was so so tired and cold sitting in the airport. I felt like we would never leave. That was definitely a disappointment."
Cons: "There were no ticketing agents at the gate adding an hour to the flight."
Cons: "Flight got cancelled after being delayed for over 2 hours for mechanical issues. Gate agent was not overwhelmingly helpful or understanding to people's frustrations during the delay and didn't go out of her way to try to help. Customer Service was helpful and able to rebook and provide overnight hotel accommodations, but it was a very slow process that clearly frustrated some customers even more. Clearly not anyone's fault, but still frustrating and not a great flying experience."
Pros: "Some movies to choose from, plenty of good action and drama choices."
Cons: "We were diverted from Pittsburgh because of fog. Other flights landed shortly thereafter from other airlines which was frustrating, but a short delay did not ruin the day. We landed instead at Dulles. After sitting and waiting for hours we were finally all put back on the plane. Then we taxied out before the pilot told us they were over their hours or something along those lines and couldn't submit the paperwork necessary to take off. We went back to the gate and were told to wait some more in case there were more pilots. No more pilots came. No more flights were available. Instead we all hovered either around the gate desk or the customer service desk where we were told we couldn't be helped. We were instead forced to pile onto buses nearly 5 hours after we had landed at the wrong airport. We then spent another 6 hours on the road driving to Pittsburgh on a bus that was crowded and hot because the air conditioning kept failing. Because of some fog and a lot of incompetence, I arrived in Pittsburgh over 12 hours after I was supposed to. My trip in total lasted 20 hours from my flight in Seattle taking off. I missed an important event for the wedding that weekend, which was upsetting given the distance I had to travel and the amount of extra time I had scheduled in for myself, but the way we were treated was worse. There was no positive communication. Nobody knew anything. We were clearly an inconvenience that nobody knew what to do with so they just kept trying to push us off to the next person. It was infuriating and unacceptable I will never fly United again if I can possibly help it."
Pros: "We didn't have those annoying corrals of groups and we were called by our groups so it made the boarding VERY easy and civilized."
Cons: "I suggest on these surveys to have a Non-applicable section for food/entertainment as many of the flights don't offer these."
Pros: "Thank you for moving me to another flight when mine was cancelled I appreciate that."
Cons: "Movies were not accessible - captions were too small. Movie also froze a few times or became jerky. Not sure whether or not it was your issue or the phone itself."
Cons: "This flight never happened it continued to get canceled and canceled!!"
Cons: "Tiny space, no access to electricity"
Pros: "Short flight, the express plane had more leg room than the regular plane."
Cons: "VERY DISORGANIZED in Dulles. Flight was delayed because we were waiting for a pilot?? Then one happens to show up? Sounded a little sketchy..."
Cons: "My flight was delayed by 3 hours which caused me to miss my connecting flight...needless to say I had to stay at the airport for 16 hours for another flight on another airlines"
Pros: "Smooth flight, nice crew, flight was at our destination early."
Cons: "Flight was delayed three hours due to mechanical problems, sat on aircraft to long before decision was made to change aircraft,multiple changes in gate which lead to long walks across airport. Should get some sort of refund for a lot of frustration and waiting"
Pros: "40 minute delay to swap a crew from the next gate over due to poor scheduling of total staff flight hours."
Cons: "crew was rude, boarding and waiting were horrible"
Cons: "There was no wifi no entertainment!!!!!!! This was a later flight that I had to be on and they showed no effort of making anyone feel comfortable even though we were on a late flight!!! Never booking united again!!!!!"
Cons: "We were in the last row and was very noisey. The stewards talked and laughed which made it difficult to rest."
Pros: "no food in first class that what I get for 5hours in texas with out my O2"
Pros: "The booking was last minute so I paid a lot for the ticket but it was a good flight. Thanks."
Cons: "The flight was delayed for 3 hours due to a light malfunction."
Cons: "United botched my boarding passes at security so I had to run back and get the correct one, catching my bags to see if they were going to the right place"
Pros: "Never happen."
Pros: "Boarding was a little challenging. Had issues with a bad check-in kiosk, but the staff handled well and got on my flight. Small plane,but a short flight."
Pros: "Smooth with courteous staff"
Pros: "We boarded on time, I was upgraded to first class because the flight was overbooked, the flight was quick (shorter than it was meant to be), the crew was extremely friendly, i got my bags from gate check immediately after I landed. Overall a great airline experience!"
Cons: "This is the only time I've flown that I can say I have no complaints !"
Cons: "I was told I had a confirmed seat after a cancelled flight and showed up the next day to find out it was given to someone else. No help was giving took us three hours to finally get help"
Pros: "I would have enjoyed a small bag of pretzels with my juice to calm my stomach. Having absolutely no solid food available seems inhospitable."
Cons: "I was told that despite weather delays I would definitely make my connection on time and to "stop wasting the agent's time" with my questions. Of course I missed it, spent Christmas night in the Houston airport, and nearly lost my job for missing work the next day. I would never fly United again."
