Paying extra for comfort plus was not worth it. Our seats had walls between them instead of arm rests that could move which did not make it comfortable for our wide bodies.
The amount of issues we had with traveling with Delta and gate agents was insane. We've never had this many issues with Delta, flights, luggage, and lack of customer support from the agents. However, the flight attendants on the flight were amazing and as kind as could be.
First class and crew checked on me once to distribute food but never came back to collect garbage. Found myself getting up to throw away trash because they collected it from everyone around me. Also never came back to ask if I wanted a refill on my drink or if I was content; I was watching a movie so I was awake.
Pros: "the crew took very good care of us"
Cons: "Flight was delayed causing the connection impossible. Delta provides no way to communicate directly with a human making rebooking impossible. The lack of care destroyed our family reunion."
Cons: "Very comfortable flight!"
Cons: "Not losing my bag on a direct flight"
Pros: "The cabin was clean and the crew was friendly."
Cons: "Better snacks. Chips or mini cheese platter"
Pros: "The snacks and water were great. Smooth flight."
Pros: "Crew was amazing before and after the flight! Delta really showed if the world isn’t doing well, that their staff will keep those problems outside the plane and keep everyone calm and safe. Thank you Delta!"
Cons: "Absolutely nothing. I’m going to join the miles points with Delta."
Cons: "We had problem with the airplane brake but the crew made the transition to the other plane so smooth. Amazing job to this delta crew."
Pros: "Some Delta planes have headrest Screens. Both my flights did and love watching movies they offer at eye level then to use iPad and have to bed down to watch. You can’t tell why planes have seat back screens but sure glad my flights dis"
Cons: "Snack choice was only two items Cheezit or Cookies. Neither sounded good to me."
Pros: "Delta treats people like friends. That’s all it takes to be successful. Delays are easy, mechanicals are easy. Great friendly team."
Pros: "Our flight crew were great. Pilots were great too."
Cons: "I missed my connection due to weather in Minneapolis. Was diverted into Milwaukee, but nope we are diverted to Chicago, but wait no we go to Milwaukee. Deboard into a close gate area. Rest rooms were closed. Then once refueling is done get back on and make Minneapolis at 12:15 am. Connection missed"
Cons: "Couldn’t hear boarding announcements. Lots of boarding confusion"
Pros: "The food and drinks on this Delta flight was much better than when I flew with them years ago. I was pleasantly surprised. Good entertainment too. Saw two movies I missed in the theaters..."
Cons: "The legroom was decent, but I couldn't get comfortable. Pillow or no pillow, the headrest just felt wrong."
Pros: "Crew was friendly!"
Cons: "Plane wasn’t clean"
Pros: "Comfortable seat."
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "No food, comfort, space, entertainment"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "Take a long time to taxi to the gate & getting off the plane."
Pros: "The flight is short and easy."
Cons: "I always try to purchase an aisle seat. I feel like there is more room and I don’t feel trapped against a window. This flight a man with very broad shoulders sat in the middle seat. I felt like he should have paid for half my ticket since he sat in half my seat. Thankfully the flight is short. Had it been my second flight I would have been quite upset."
Pros: "Crew was very good I would say that 5"
Cons: "This Delta flight did not have seat back screens to watch in flight entertainment. You needed to use your smartphone or tablet keeping in mind Amazon tablets won’t work. You needed to go to delta website and choose what want to watch the you needed to have Gogo Flight entertainment app already on smartphone and then would work. Not easy even for me a vivid user of tablets and smartphones. The seats had miniumal room available between seats it felt like I am on 5’qq so couldn’t imagine anyone taller that comfortable unless get first class. I even upgraded for “comfort” section which gave you a few inches extra. And wdith of chair me being a 36 waist was a little squeezed in. Crew was very good tho I will say that. But I laways fly JetBlue or Virgin America, or Alaskan Air for reason of more comfort and lower prices ticket but this time on flight close to my destination was Delta which I Flew for free, I would much rather buy ticket on the three others I fly if could have."
Pros: "The Delta team was very kind and accommodating to me and my baby and did all they could to make it easier for me."
Cons: "Baggage drop- the line was longer for that than the security clearance! Perhaps have people pay at the kiosk for their baggage so the line moves more quickly."
Pros: "Friendly and attentive staff. Would definitely recommend . Flight departed and arrived on time."
Pros: "The crew was great"
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours delayed"
Pros: "Entertainment system great. Individual choices include recent movies. On board staff very nice"
Cons: "We had issues with baggage. Delta was supposed to transfer 4 bags to Disney for Magic Express transportation. Only 3 went. Disney tried hard to fix problem, and even gave us something to ameliorate the situation. Delta took hard line, wasn't helpful and gave nothing. It took 2 days to find bag."
Pros: "Friendly staff"
Cons: "Crowded waiting area and plane. Awful on plane!"
Cons: "In between Delta and Aeromexico changed my flight and made me travel more than 24 hours. In addition, I was traveling with a suitcase and nobody was able to pick it up for me. Layover time was 6 hours originally. Service from Aeromexico at JFK is the worst"
Pros: "Didn’t fly to Detroit . Delta changed flight to Atlanta & then toFort Meyers"
Pros: "Delayed 40 minutes first flight out at 5am. Missed connecting flight by 2 minutes."
Cons: "No assistance in helping us get to our destination"
Pros: "Good seat"
Cons: "Delayed by 1 hr"
Pros: "Nothing worst flight I've ever had."
Cons: "Everything Delta was so poor quality!!! The flight attendants were not helpful."
Pros: "Space in seats was better than most airlines"
Cons: "That they charge for bags. It is now an industry standard, nevertheless, it's a way of stealing to customers. Airlines shouldn't charge for bags"
Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Felt like a sardine . Just like ALL fights these days."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. The snacks and sandwich were good. The staff was very friendly, helpful and nice."
Cons: "We were unable to connect to the airplane WiFi, so we couldn't enjoy the onboard entertainment. The plane was not as clean as we would like it to be. There was old food under my seat."
Cons: "The flight was over an hour late arriving ATL at gate after our original connection had departed. We had to change to later flight from ATL to JAX."
Pros: "there was NOTHING good about the trip from nc to atl to fl!"
Cons: "where should i start? my flight was delayed leaving NC to ATL. after standing in line for over an hr trying to speak to someone about the issue. i was notified on my phone i could keep my current flight or rebook of course i wanted to keep my current flight since it was my birthday weekend. i then called delta (in nc) for help since they told us we wouldnt make our 1030 flight and we might have to stay in a hotel that night until we could rebook the flight. not cool! i was told by a person (in nc)about what i should do once landed in ATL. they were beyond rude. they turned their backs or gave half answers. when asked about the hotel for the night they told me they werent going to handle that and i had to pay for a hotel AFTER i was just told by a delta agent that if i had to stay overnight my hotel was going to be covered. i then again called a delta agent in ATL after being informed that my status on the stand by list wasnt activated and i had less than 10 mins to make it to the next terminal and try to get activated and i would probably not get onto that flight to leave ATL. we were told that we had to stay in the terminal that night. my whole trip could have been ruined from the start from the flight being delayed in NC to talking to rude delta agents in NC and ATL. my flight status being one thing and then finding out it was something else. i never had to deal with something like this."
Pros: "Boarding in St Thomas is always a mess, no matter what airline you fly. I usually fly Delta because the planes are clean and the people are nice. Well this time the staff went well above and beyond. My friend and I were sitting in the front row of seats in the lounge at the airport, facing the Delta gates. There was a mob of people milling about between us and the gate, so we could not see very well, but we thought we had a clear view of the door. Also it was very loud in the terminal. The flight had a delay, so we were relaxing and chatting, when I got a text from my mom asking if I was on the plane. So I went to the counter to inquire if they had started boarding our flight. The lady looked at me with surprise and said, "We have been paging you!!". Well we were both surprised! We had not heard anything over the general din in the airport. It turns out they had completed boarding and already rolled the stairs away from the plane! The ground staff talked to the captain and then they rolled up a set of stairs, opened the door to the plane, and let us on! The flight attendants said that they had never seen that happen before. I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to the crew at Delta for going the extra mile to make sure we made it on our flight."
Cons: "There is nothing I didn't like about this flight!!"
Pros: "I was comfortable in my seat, with the pilot and the stewardesses."
Cons: "I was charged for my carry-on bag. My first time flying I didn't know that I could have a carry-on and pocketbook to take with me."
Pros: "Reminds of when air travel was a special event. The Salt Lake based crew was awesome. Cost to upgrade to 1st definitely worth it."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Pros: "Laura, who checked us in was extraordinarily great."
Pros: "Left on time....arrived on time. Boarding was as good as it ever gets. Anytime you can get your carry on in the overhead bin it is a great flight."
Cons: "It wasn't easy to find what gate I had to go to. I didn't see any boards in the check in area. It was only after TSA check that I found a staff member who gave me the information. After that all went okay. The problem might have been my own....it is a big airport."
Pros: "The crew is always great. I liked the environment was cooler. It doesn't need to be refrigerator cold but keeping things on the cooler side is helpful."
Cons: "The boarding process is always horrible. Folks crowd the gate before their class is called. It creates anxiety and edginess. Never a good way to start a trip. While it always goes relatively quickly I feel it should be more organized and folks made to follow a system. Cramming right up against the ticket counter doesn't do anyone any good."
Cons: "Three bags were left at Paris and were delivered to me only after more than 48 hrs - lock of one bag was missing and other bag was in damaged condition"
Pros: "Great entertainment, good food, nice staff."
Cons: "You have to pay for the ckecked baggage ($25 per piece) and the airfare was not cheap."
Pros: "It doesn't matter how good all of the above were when one of our bags did not make the connection in Atlanta and when it was delivered late at night to my home and it has been torn beyond repair"
Cons: "Bag did not make the connection and it was damaged beyond repair"
Pros: "Availability of First Class service was the only saving grace."
Cons: "Delays longer than the scheduled flight time. Entertainment options are limited in the time of such a short flight. Long distance between gates when you have been forced into a hurry by delays."
Cons: "A flying chicken bus. The air conditioning was really loud."
rerouted and delayed !! praying I get my bags !!
Delayed 2+ hours, missed connecting flight
This was a much better experiencie than others with AA
Worst airline ever don’t travel with American Airlines
Cons: "The cabin was to cold 🥶"
Pros: "Crew was nice and comfort was okay."
Cons: "There was no internet most of the flight it only worked for the first 20-30 minutes of the flight then they tried resetting it but it didn’t work for the rest of the flight."
Cons: "Late with a bs explanation. Nasty flight attendant"
Cons: "boarding delay, we must arrived at 13:48hrs, but our flight return to miami due to problems in navigation, we have to await at airport and arrived at Guatemala at 18:30hrs."
Pros: "The crew was friendly. The airline brought out some snacks for the passengers after an hour or so."
Cons: "There was a mechanical failure. We all had to deplane. The flight was delayed longer than the travel time to the destination."
Cons: "There was a delay on the departure"
Pros: "Crew was extremely helpful."
Cons: "Flight from Philadelphia to Phoenix left about an hour late. We still made our connection but made a long travel day longer."
Cons: "Boarded onetime, maybe a little early, but still departed 25 minutes late for no apparent reason. This caused me to nearly miss my connecting flight. Got to the gate just as they were about finished boarding."
Cons: "When I made the reservation the code indicated that we would be able to purchase food on the flight. When I asked, the flight attendant said, nope, only choice is a pack of two cookies. We were starving on the 3.5 hour flight."
Cons: "Flight was cancelled and there were zero accommodations"
Cons: "the flight was delayed 5 hours due to maintenance. The captain had to finally, after several hours, come to the boarding area to inform all of us that there was problem that was not communicated correctly so we then had to wait an additional 2.5 hours more on top of the original 2.5 hour delay for the two certified mechanics on St. Croix to attest that the plane could fly. No one asked them to come earlier, so we waited for pretty much five (5) hours. We were promised meals and hotel in Miami. the Miami American Airlines service desk told us, sorry, there's so many people, we could not be accommodated. This is outrageous, and I want my money back. I paid for 4 people on that flight and we were treated horribly. On top of that....Cheapoair, representative from whom I bought the tickets, sold me tickets without my understanding that we only had 41 minutes to get off the original flight from Christiansted find the next flight and board it. We never would have made it. Final point, the Cheapoair guy who sold me the tickets charged me about 500 dollars more than what he said the cost was. He quoted and said "all in" 1150 per ticket (I bought 4 tickets). He then charged me nearly 5300 Again this is outrageous and a complete sham. I demand to be compensated for this."
Cons: "Food was payable so should not even be a criteria here We had to collect our luggage coming from portugal to check them in Again in Miami. Really a burden. After 20 hours flying this was really annoying. Again Iberia saving money at the cost of clients"
Pros: "We were allowed to take a carryon bag, unlike on a United flight we took on our way from Chicago to Hartford, without paying $30 to do so. When we got to the Gate for this flight, complimentary checking of carry-on bags was allowed, and that helped speed the boarding process, not just for us, but for all the people on the flight."
Cons: "The on-line entertainment system wasn't working."
Pros: "Everything in order and on time."
Pros: "i could sleep on 3 seats, because had two seats free near me))))"
Pros: "The sight that you can see when you fly over Cordillera de los Andes."
Cons: "No food, no entertainment. We had to board by bus, not by the bridge. Old plane."
Pros: "They boarded quickly, left early, arrived 40 minutes ahead of schedule. The staff were very friendly and efficient."
Cons: "Took off late and arrived late. Took15 minutes to taxi to gate"
Pros: "Crew nice"
Cons: "Legroom terrible"
Pros: "AA staff in Guatemala are great, everything else about AA is bellow any other airline, definitely the worst airline."
Cons: "AA is the worst airline in everything, but worst of all is the AA staff attitude in Miami airport, AA staff in Guatemala are great."
Pros: "Thankful for the pilot... He got us to Charlotte alive."
Cons: "Sitting on the plane for two hours prior to take off. Also, I'm not a fan of being bribed into credit cards, and the whole class system... Everyone is a human passenger"
Pros: "Nothing, American Airlines is the worst major airline now."
Cons: "The staff in Miami Airport is really bad, worst attitude I have seen, old planes, not comfortable, definetly the worst major airline now."
Pros: "Right on time."
Cons: "I wish more food"
Pros: "Clean plane. Excellent service. On time."
Cons: "Surprise no carry on bag. I missed my flight because of their policy changed policy"
Pros: "Crew were pleasant Arrived safely"
Cons: "Seats are way too cramped especially for my broad shoulders. Beverage service was minimal"
Cons: "AS changed flight time,had 3.5 hour layover in charolette originally was going to arrive at 11am in Denver, didn't arrive until 1:30pm"
Cons: "No screens in each seat."
Pros: "I like the fact we got to Dayton 20 minutes early!"
Cons: "I don't like the fact that we don't have access to the overhead"
Cons: "Late taking off and arriving. Once we landed it took 15 minutes to locate someone to bring the ramp out to the plane. Just incompetence on part of American Airlines."
Pros: "Overall it was very comfortable and smooth flight."
Cons: "The airplane was looked new, clean and the seats were very comfortable."
Pros: "Ground delay but we still got there in time and I made a close connectionshort flight"

Cons: "Nothing was bad overall. It was a very nice flight"
Pros: "The plane was really nice."
Cons: "The food was not good."
Pros: "Everything was smooth and went on schedule. Actually first flight in a very long time and it was the holiday weekend. Yeah."
Cons: "Allergies. American Airlines must do a better job of accommodating children with peanut allergies. It is obvious they do not get the serious health issue and life threatening situation of the allergy. Our family traveling to Disney on AA had a very uncomfortable ride."
Cons: "Internal America Airlines connection was delayed so my luggage never made it on to my international flight and then it took 2days for them to get it sent over!"
Pros: "Timing and transit time was excellent"
Pros: "The flight was efficient and the crew were courteous."
Cons: "There isn't much to dislike, but it certainly wasn't anything extraordinary either."
Pros: "The flight, attendants, timeliness"
Cons: "Unable to check in unless paying extra for only available seats. At DFW was scolded for nit checkibg in sooner and was assigned "the last seat" because of overbooking. Same today trying to check in JAN to DFW. Must pay extra or wait untill get to airport.Reserved months ago. Assign seat upon reservation!"
Pros: "Helpfulness of employees"
Pros: "Crew was excellent seat was as usual"
Cons: "Something to Fill your tome a little more"
Pros: "Nothing in particular."
Cons: "We took 2 United flights today... Both were delayed. Really annoyed by it. We took some other flights using AA and Delta, and both were on time. United failed horribly at it."
Pros: "Upbeat and attentive crew"
Cons: "Wifi was awful. On a long flight, that's important. The crew's explanation was that when so many people are logged on at once, it kicks someone else off. Which basically means the system wasn't designed for everyone to use."
Pros: "Crew was really friendly."
Cons: "WiFiwas not functioning. They ran out of food. Boarding was delayed."
Cons: "My baggage was left in Houston"
Pros: "Good. Thank You united airlines.!! Excellent 10.00"
Cons: "The bathroom gets messed ( wet paper towels on floor) by irresponsible passengers, stays yucky ."
Pros: "They let me know they couldn't get it together enough to get a plane in an almost timely manner. Once they did I couldn't take advantage of the alternatives without risking missing out all together"
Cons: "The 4 plus hour delay that meant a 3 plus hour layover because of the missed connection. Requesting an agreement to just make the new connection because of their non-weather related delay."
Pros: "The connecting flight from Chicago to Traverse City was very nice due to the leg room in the exit row I purchased at additional cost."
Cons: "The seats on the flight from Albany to Chicago were the new smaller type which were horrible for a 6,5 260 lb man in exit row economy seating. Dogs on board which was bad for my allergies. This seems to be the case more times than not. I’m asthmatic and very allergic to animals. I know, it’s all my fault..."
Pros: "The arrive time was excellent. Courtesy and smile faces of the Crew in Business Class"
Cons: "The boarding process was ugly, in disorder and it is a big lie you have with your business class ticket the priority option. The food was very poor. I had to avoid continue eating because I felt the food was not fresh."
Cons: "It was three hour deley in Newark Airport because the plain didn't arrive on time."
Cons: "Food choice was awful. Ended up eating just a salad"
Cons: "Cramped, not enough room for carry-ons"
Cons: "It’s not their fault but the flight was delayed."
Pros: "I was put in a hotel. That is the only positive... literally the only positive."
Cons: "A 3 hour 55 minute mechanical delay, boarding and deplaning, caused a windfall effect to our other connections causing us to miss everyone that we needed to make it home to Alaska. I will not be getting home until almost 4 days after my original travel date. Missing work as a teacher is tough, and I planned it with plenty of room for safety, only to have United fail me. Weather issues are something I can forgive, but a mechanical issue combined with the weather snarl in Newark has caused endless stress. Bags couldn't be found, no information on new standby flights, and false hopes of being put on Alaska air tomorrow from a united agent last night. All in all my worst experience in as long as I can remember flying."
Cons: "They don’t care about their passengers one bit"
Pros: "The flight is on time.... the food is good.... the service is excellent...."
Cons: "Lack of snacks..."
Pros: "The service at the automated counter was very good"
Pros: "Slightly delayed for slow baggage handling at gate"
Cons: "As common as this might be, I think 4 hours delay is the worst advertising for an airline. I completely understand things can happen but, what would happen if I show up 4 hours late? will you be ok with that. We gotta be fair. I think passengers deserve a compensation for this"
Cons: "Bumped from two flights due to weather and delayed due to pilots coming in late"
Cons: "My flight was overbooked could fly out until the next day"
Cons: "Booked on flight next day but much less convenient than original direct flight."
Cons: "Air lines can't keep a schedule."
Pros: "The plane arrived safely in Newark"
Cons: "The plane left 7 hours late - for a 45 min flight. I got on another flight (only becuase I sought a solution to arri9ving 7 hrs late) but still arrived several hours after my determined arrival time. No compenatio or apology."
Pros: "There was a problem at Newark airport on my way back. The united agent was terrific to successfully secure a different route for me so I could get back home. Many thanks,"
Pros: "everything was good"
Pros: "Wheelchair service was so helpful for my mother."
Cons: "Over an hour mechanical delay at ALB. We barely made it to our connection. Pretty tense considering I was with an elderly confused mother who would not have dealt well with a delay from Newark to Denver."
Pros: "Fight was on time. Crew very pleasant. No complaints"
Pros: "Cold in hallway for manditory carry on check & anxious that I may not make next flight, . Newark to Ft. Myers"
Pros: "There was absolutely nothing to like about this trip."
Cons: "My first flight was delayed 2 hours due to a ground stop at the next airport. Upon finally boarding the plane for a second time, we sat at the Albany airport for abou 40 minutes. When arriving to the Newark airport, there was communication issues and no way for us to get to a terminal so we were stuck on that plane for 2 hours. While stuck on the plane my connecting flight got delayed twice then cancelled. Once finally in the airport, I waited an hour in line for customer service only to tell me they couldn't even put me up in a hotel because it was air traffic controls fault, even though NO other airline was down. They gave me a $10 food voucher, apparently that would fix everything. I had to put myself in a $130 hotel room and being a broke college student I wasn't expecting that. I will never fly united again, it was he worst experience I've ever had and one of the most stressful days. This airline is horrible."
Pros: "I liked getting a snack and drink. I guess all planes are crowded. I didn't have any carrying luggage so I didn't have to worry about overhead storage- which would have been a problem."
Pros: "Nothing good at all"
Pros: "Crew were friendly. Got us in early (efficent)."
Cons: "Boarding is a free-for-all. No ammenties (charged for tv, internet, and food)."
Pros: "Kindness of crew"
Cons: "Flights were delayed, no entertainment... Only pay-per view... No free food..."
Pros: "The flight was cancelled three times. Understanding that can happen, it's the fact that United didn't do anything to make everyone relaxed about having the flight delayed. The crew and pilots were very understanding and relayed reasons for delay while ON the plane. The air on the plane was very cold."
Pros: "leg room was not too bad"
Cons: "I needed to ask questions about my flights because of delays and not a single person acted professional at the gates, quite rude responses. On each of my 3 plane changes there was only one attendant actually smiled. Another read from a sheet of paper like she didn't know what to say. Two others never dmiled or said you're welcome after I thanked them. Im used to the friendly staff on Southwest. They are great!"
Cons: "Flight before delayed 5 hours. Bad snack, expressive food"
Pros: "Did not realize that I was not confirmed. I was traveling for a medical emergency and needed to wait to be cleared."
Cons: "Plane was tiny and claustrophobic"
Pros: "Cheap tickets"
Cons: "Seating is uncomfortable, everything costs money, takes a long time"
Pros: "Flight a lot easier then flight up to NY. Didn't have to ride with left over storm conditions. Smoother flight."
Pros: "The flight was delayed so they put me on a direct flight with an earlier arrival time..... So nice."
Pros: "United crews use to tell me you couldn't preboard with children but they must have changed that policy because they allowed it this time."
Cons: "They always ask a second time for the boarding pass after the first agent scans it. They should tell you to keep it out if they are going to review it a second time."
Pros: "The timely fashion that the process took to complete, traveling was good and easy that day!"
Pros: "Timely departure, safe timely arrival, friendly crew."
