Good flight quick and easy
I was originally supposed to fly out on 2/18/22 and return on 2/22/22. I drove three hours to get to the Albany airport. While waiting Delta sent a message stating that my flight was delayed an hour so I would not make my connection in Laguardia. I waited 35 minutes to talk to a Delta agent in the Albany airport. She said there were no other flights until Sunday 2/20/22. I rebooked my flight for the following Thursday 2/24/22, but she could not book my returning flight on Sunday 2/27/22. She gave me a phone number to call. I stayed on the line with the Delta agent for 2 hours to book my returning flight. This was not optimal because I have to work on Monday 2/28/22. On my returning flight, the flight from Atlanta to Albany was delayed three hours. This placed me arriving in Albany at 2:30 am. By the time I found my car and drove three hours back to my house it was 6:00 am 2/28/22. I had to take a half-day off so I could sleep before work. In total, I took a half-day off on 2/1822 to arrive at Albany on time for my flight, drove six hours for nothing, and had to take a half-day on my returning flight.
The staff was very friendly and professional.

Cons: "Lack of leg room"
Pros: "Delta has always be a step above the rest. Traveling with my children is not a problem and frowned upon with Delta. I rarely choose competitive airlines and will continue to use Delta as much as possible."
Pros: "Great gate crew. Cabin crew was nice, but busy. On time arrival."
Pros: "Crew was very friendly. Embarked and disembarked quickly. Flight arrived early"
Cons: "Entertainment was working, watching movie when they said done didn't have do they were resetting system. They tried twice taking over an hour and it never came back on for anyone..... :("
Cons: "Everything that could have gone wrong with my flights, went wrong. On my way from LA to Raleigh (through Atlanta), I was affected by the weather conditions at Atlanta. I understand that the weather is beyond Delta's scope of control, but customer service is not. I had to wait in line at LAX for 8 hours to even get information on what had happened, and what solutions were available. The customer service call center was collapsed, and at the airport counters at one point there was ONLY ONE DELTA REPRESENTATIVE serving a line of more than 100 upset customers. This IS Delta's fault, and it is unacceptable. This definitely was under Delta's control, but in order to save a few dollars in overtime for emergency staff Delta was willing to let its customers make terribly long lines, miss their flights, their connections and consequently their commitments. It is disappointing to observe how Delta believes that a few dollars saved on extra staff and emergency measures can offset the irreparable long term damage to its business due to upset customers. My way back from Raleigh to Los Angeles was also a disaster. Without any type of explanation and nothing more than an email announcing the change, the nonstop flight I bought was replaced by a 1-stop flight with connection in Atlanta. This was NOT THE PRODUCT I PURCHASED. There is a reason I paid a premium for a nonstop flight, and Delta did not hesitate in providing me with a less valuable product without any explanation or refund. Delta prioritizes its operational metrics - an obsession to fill and overbook its capacity - over its customers' experience, one again under the foolish belief that short term savings in any way offset the long term damage of disappointed and alienated customers. I will NEVER FLY DELTA AGAIN. I will do whatever I can to transmit my experience to everyone I know. At a time where major airline carriers are in the spotlight due to abusive practices (i.e. the United passenger case), I still find hope in knowing that alternatives such as Southwest still put their customers first, over the ethereal benefits that a few-dollar savings in operational expenses can provide."
Pros: "Flight attendants were competent."
Cons: "Air conditioning was extremely noisy."
Pros: "Row 19 on a 737ER is great for room, as long as you don't plan on reclining (I rarely do in a daytime flight)"
Cons: "A little overcautious regarding seating the cabin crew because of possible turbulence, but better safe than sorry, I suppose. However, it is a common occurrence on this particular leg, so don't board knowing you might need to take a "break" before you get to Atlanta."
90 min delay for a food cart that needed to be fixed.
It was canceled twice. To the point I couldn't go on my trip.
Canceled flight, terrible re-booking assistance, lost bags. Worst experience ever. I will never, ever fly AA again.
I had a malfunctioning chair that kept automatically going from recline to fully erect and the footrest next quite functioned properly.
The Wi-Fi didn't work at all. It was extremely frustrating.
I've experienced friendlier flight crews, but they weren't rude or bad by any means. I just chalk it up to being the end of the day.
I know it’s been 2 years and counting ,BUT your folks need to get more aggressive having everyone cover their noses in tight spaces on the bus and in the boarding areas. There are always a few “smart asses” who refuse to cover up. I suppose it would be difficult to “deputize” passengers, and you guys know the rules better than anyone. But how selfish are these people ? They should Immediately be removed from the lines, and at least held out to board last as an example. If airlines did something like this, it might help keeping us all safe from this ongoing problem! Please send my highest regards to all your employees! I am sure they never thought they would be put in this position but they should remember it’s keeping them and their families safe as well! Otherwise , the flight was great!
Flight cancelled and no other flights available till afternoon next day
Flight attendants were pleasant especially considering the flight was full. Charger in my seat was inoperable and no entertainment available.
The first-class flight attendant from LIT to Mia was very professional and a nice older experience attedent .
Pros: "The seat seemed broken. The main issue was that all shades were down. I thought when we took off and landed , window shades were supposed to be up? I felt like I was in a dark tunnel with shades down and lights the entire flight out and it was mid-afternoon."
Pros: "Flight and plan where great."
Cons: "Stewardess was very rude and un please y with all customers. Didn’t feel like she wanted to be on the flight. Her attitude was the main problem."
Pros: "The crew was great and I really appreciate how they accommodated a family with 4 young children"
Pros: "Good crew"
Cons: "The boarding process was terrible. The boarding time changed every 5 minutes"
Cons: "Not more room, just room in general"
Pros: "Pilot was very careful went around the storm that we could see from out flight nicely got us home safely. Great job."
Cons: "Even though I had a priority boarding I was told that I was suppose to stay with group 5. As a BA silver traveller I didn’t get the boarding priority."
Cons: "Arrangements for wheel chairs were poor at London compared to Chicago which was excellent."
Cons: "EVERYTHING! food, crews attitude, helpfulness"
Pros: "Aircraft looks brand new and it had ton of entertainment videos, games, tv etc."
Cons: "Why did you remove T-Mobile!?? It was the best, bring it back"
Pros: "Desk attendant was very kind, but clearly had no idea what to tell us."
Cons: "See previous flight post, another delay for mechanical issues, another round of poor communication."
Cons: "Delays departing delays connecting delays delays delays. Flight attendants were very pleasant."
Cons: "Had to buy another ticket"
Cons: "Seats size and bathroom are horrible. I don’t know what to rate for food. They don’t serve you anything but a drink."
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Passengers brought hot food on board at Dallas. McDonalds and KFC odours were overwhelming for first 30 minutes."
Cons: "Three hours delay. I paid for a upgrade to first class. But because of the flight change i didn't get to keep my upgrade and I had to beg for a refund. I have had two trips in the past 5 days and all flights have been anywhere from 1 to 3 hours late. Worst experience with AA I have had in a long time."
Pros: "Short flight."
Cons: "Boarding agents could use some customer service training."
Pros: "Not a thing plans got changed I had back surgery"
Cons: "That my plans got changed"
Cons: "All the different prices for seats. I think it is a stupid system. Miss the good old days of air travel."
Cons: "Our connecting flight was late and they next flight left 5min early?! WTF! We missed the flight by 3min. 10 other people missed the flight too. Now our whole day is blown waiting nearly 6hrs for next flight."
Pros: "Crew were very efficient and kind."
Cons: "It was very cold the entire flight."
Pros: "Very comfortable cabin,"
Cons: "couldn't get the in flight entertainment to work"
Pros: "Spacious aircraft for a relatively short flight. I usually take a smaller aircraft that requires us to check our luggage. I'm reconsidering where I will have layovers now."
Pros: "nice aircraft I really liked the double seats on both sides of the isle, an ultimate aircraft for patrons traveling in pairs of two."
Cons: "It was too short of a trip for $$"
Pros: "A nonstop flight, with a friendly efficient crew, met my expectations. A crew member went above and beyond when I asked for a coffee stirrer with my coke and ice."
Cons: "I've been spoiled by another airline's access to screens on the back of the headrest. I have my own hand held devices to entertain myself instead."
Pros: "Customer service good. Offered food/service quickly."
Cons: "Film selection was subpar, and had no subtitles available. Flight safety information video so unbelievably boring. Flight crew repeated all instructions at least 3 times including video interruptions. What is the point of having in flight entertainment if crew will interrupt said entertainment at least once every 10 min to remind you you are still in turbulent air? Do they honestly think the passengers forgot? We are in the plane too! I understand they have to be careful due to liability but this airline is ridiculous. Believe it or not customers do not like being treated like children. Would not recommend to others or fly this airline again. Also, the lunch was awful even by airline standards. Btw the airline was avianca not AA. kayak must have messed up or they are owned by AA. AA is great and I recommend them wholeheartedly but Avianca is awful. Stay away if you can afford to do so."
Pros: "Awesome crew. On time."
Cons: "Baggage delay, flight delayed by 36 hours and no customer support"
Pros: "Flight crew"
Cons: "Delay due to maintenance"
Pros: "Everything went very smoothly & I plan to book more trips on Kayak in the future."
Cons: "Boarding was slow. Flight to Chicago which was at the same gate took way too long to board. Could not figure out the problem. Took WAY too long to get wheelchairs to unload passengers off the plane that was to take us to Dallas. Sat on the tarmac for additional 20 min. Delay cost me an additional 2 1/2 hours later in Dallas and FIVE hours in London airport!!"
Pros: "I liked that there were no stops."
Cons: "I had an instant panic attack when our flight was delayed because a box cutter was found under a seat on the flight that just arrived. I get honesty, but I was seriously reconsidering getting on the plane, because what if they missed something? I was working out in my head what would happen to our pets if we died on this flight, because we don't have a will yet."
Pros: "That it went smooth and had room on the flight. Crew was good."
Cons: "Need more than just pretzels on the plane to give out"
Pros: "Flights were on time. Airport was clean."
Pros: "found out upon boarding that my $97 ticket was for a business class seat. Awesome"
Pros: "The fact I made the flight"
Cons: "Nearly missing the flight that my luggage did not arrive with me that I had to go back to airport 6 hours later to get it!!!!!"
Cons: "Cancelled flight, not notified in timely manner. Delayed Five hours due to be placed on connecting flights instead of a direct flight which is what I paid for."
Cons: "Flight delayed about two hours"
Staff was very attentive. They took real good care of us. Flight on time etc.. I have not flown United much in the past however after this trip and how well things have gone. United might just have converted me.
Pros: "Super sweet and helpful crew, comfortable seats, fast boarding."
Cons: "My overhead light was broken. I didn’t need to use it so it was no problem at all, but that’s the only thing I could think of"
Cons: "Free wifi"
Pros: "One attendant did it all. And very well. Impressive."
Cons: "More snack options."
Pros: "The crew was really great. Arrived 25 min early."
Cons: "The snack was terrible. To sweet"
Pros: "The people in fayetteville treated my William well. Thank you fayetteville, and shame on you Denver."
Cons: "When we got to Denver there was no one to help William off the plane. We even called ahead of time to make sure someone would be there with a wheelchair. The captain of the plane had to help him off the plane. It was so sad. William was so embarrassed. When it was time to board still no wheelchair. He had to struggle to get back on."
Pros: "Very annoyed with the direct tv. No gluten free option for food/snacking."
Cons: "comfortable seating. nice staff. on time flights."
Pros: "Again, on time and great crew."
Cons: "United Express flies out of Terminal A at Newark (EWR) and routinely they do not have Precheck lanes open. Despite flying on the Saturday after Thanksgiving they only had one mixed security line open. When I asked TSA they said they simply weren't staffed to have a Precheck line open. Everyone was working diligently but this happens every time we fly United out of Newark. Traveling with 2 small children it is incredibly frustrating to have to go through the full security line, take off our shoes, and take all of our electronics out of our bags."
Pros: "I got to my destination and didn’t die."
Cons: "Poorly marked gate. Late boarding time. Sat on shuttle for 20 minutes before they took us to the plane. Then we sat on the plane with the heat blasting and no air available. Flight was delayed due to maintenance."
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Great flight attendant."
Cons: "Leg room was barely sufficient to open and use my laptop."
Pros: "A FUN HAPPY TIME AS THE CHAPS WHO SAT EITHER SIDE OF ME WERE CHATTY AND HUMOROUS - THEY WERE HAPPY THAT COLUMBUS DAY WAS TO BE CELEBRATED THIS PAST MONDAY AND WHEN I TOLD THEM I WAS TO CELEBRATE CANADIAN THANKSGIVING WITH MY SON AND HIS AMERICAN WIFE AND THEIR 2 CHILDREN - WELL LET'S JUST SAY THE 3 HOURS OF THE FLIGHT FLEW BY. SMILE"
Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "Seats to small...no shoulder room. Noise exceeded 70 db"
Cons: "There is nothing like arriving on time only to be blocked from the gate and waiting 20 mins..."
Pros: "Atleast was able to reach my destination."
Cons: "No leg room. Definitely overpriced"
Cons: "Late departure; tiny, smelly plane; cranky flight attendant."
Pros: "On time take off and arrival"
Pros: "That my suitcase was stowed"
Cons: "Waiting 11 hours for the flight"
Cons: "They could have used the bathroom to stuff a few more people on this flight. Whoops, no, bathroom not clean. Tray broken on seat. Seated in last row and asked to close bathroom door of it opened during takeoff. Seated next to very large passenger who wanted to share my seat. Sat on tarmac for 30 minutes waiting to take off. For this, I paid $650."
Pros: "Not really impressed"
Pros: "Flight attendant noticed my husbands t-shirt from Galveston and talked briefly about it. Smooth flight."
Cons: "Since it was a smaller plane the seating room was tight."
Cons: "Although the flight was scheduled to depart quite early, it was delayed twice. Weather was good, but incoming flight was late. Then there was no cabin attendant-40 minute delay. Few amenities in Terminal A of JFK."
Pros: "Everything ,good services ,nice stafs and puntual"
Pros: "We never took flight as carrier was late from original destination, so we had to switch to American to make connections to SFO our dual destination. Then 1of our checked bags didn't make it to the new flight. Bag is still floating between United & American somewhere."
Cons: "The gate agent for United at Newark was very rude and dismissive. Would not answer any of my questions or anyone who attempted after me. His attitude was very poor and seemed to not care about his job. Plane was late arriving in Portland Maine."
Cons: "The flight was fine, but my flight was cancelled on the 29th and the agent who helped rebook my flight was abrupt, then I get to the airport on the 30th and the flight is delayed another 2 hours. Of course it was all "weather" related, so no help from the airlines. I'm not a satisfied customer. I would have flown Delta if it was possible."
Pros: "On time...."
Cons: "Bigger plane than usual.."
Pros: "Our connecting flight was more comfortable than flight from San Francisco"
Cons: "Delay because of change of plane and 3 gate changes"
Cons: "The pilot speeding up and then putting on the brakes time after time on flight from Norfolk 10:30 am to Dulles today. Very rough flight and it was beautiful smooth air today. I'm a private pilot and could not figure out what was going on,"
Cons: "Long wait on the plane on the tarmac."
Pros: "Flight attendant very friendly and helpful Seat row layout of 1 and 2 On time Legroom adequate Smooth flight"
Cons: "Cabin temperature became too cold Seats small Engine noise drowned out announcements of pilot and flight attendant Narrow uneven disembarking ramp at Portland Jetport Lack of clarity about flight gate in Newark. I checked in at Terminal C and had to take a shuttle bus to Terminal A"
Pros: "On time quick flight."
Cons: "No legroom, snack a joke, no entertainment."
Pros: "I think is too much money that I have to pay for the second baggage"
Cons: "I think is too much money that we have to pay for the second baggage"
Pros: "I barely missed my scheduled flight and the ticket agent was very accommodating. He found another flight and re-made all my arrangements. Thanks!"
Pros: "Flight staff was wonderful."
Cons: "Newark Airport. The terminal was probably 60 degrees. Navigation signs were the least helpful of any airport I've flown out of or into."
Pros: "Finally arriving at the destination."
Cons: "We were stranded in Newark with little to no air conditioning in 90 degree heat. Our flight was delayed 9 HOURS. I lost an entire day of my family's vacation because of United Airlines and their massive blunder. They said it was because there was no air conditioning, but at the same time they said their crew clocked out and we had to wait for new personnel to man the plane. I find it hard to believe that this couldn't be foreseen and avoided. By the time we finally got our crew, we then had to await for a storm to pass, and then 40 other planes had to take off first. All United offered in apology were $10 vouchers that expire in two days, and a free drink on the plane."
Pros: "On time and friendly to Portland as always."
Pros: "Everything was great"
Cons: "Please read above--I was standing at the gate waiting to board when the gate rep told me and another passenger there was only one seat left--on a flight I was confirmed on! The other passenger said he had a family obligation and the rep handed him the last ticket before I could get a word out. I felt so disrespected and like my business and money meant nothing to United. Then began my saga to get to Portland. Unbelievable."
Cons: "Upon arrival the flight attendant left me stranded on the tarmack without a wheelchair for 20 minutes. I have serious balance issues and was terrified. My connection was very tight and I barely made my plane to Portland. The pilot finally saw the problem and got the assistance I needed. This was the most frightening wheelchair experience I have even had."
Pros: "I wish I would have caught her name but the staff member at the boarding gate was fabulous! She is someone I would want representing my company."
Cons: "The wafer served with the beverage & my seat assignment stunk."
Pros: "I had no complications before/during this flight. It was as if the air travel angels were smiling down on me, making little decisions like, "Sure. Give her that rare luxury of having no one sitting beside her... twice in a row. And toss in not one, but two of those United Airlines cookies." (Those cookies are sooooo good.) Really, at the moment, I can think of nothing anyone could've done any better."
Pros: "There were empty seats and the very polite flight attendant offered for me to move without me having to ask."
Cons: "I arrived at my final destination and walked to baggage claim. I was just standing there waiting when a young girl walked by me in a uniform and said rudely and almost annoyed, "do you have a question". I replied that I was waiting on my bag. She then said these are it and I said so my bag has been lost? Without any empathy AT ALL she again, rudely and now most definitely annoyed said Do you have your bag tag? I said yes and she proceeded to walk away to a corner office. I assumed I was to follow. She took my tag, no communication at all from her, I said what are you doing and she replied I have to file a claim. She then proceeded to tell me that Newark Airport was horrible and never travel through there if I know what's good for me. This was extremely unprofessional. I was simply wanting some guidance from her on what to expect etc. I had to ask her what my next steps were. She handed me a flyer and said if I had any questions to call baggage information listed on the pamphlet. I left. The next day at about 1 p.m. I called the number and the update said my bag had left the airport and was out for delivery. Keep in mind that I had to work the next day after the airline losing my bag and had to purchase shower items etc due to them being in my lost bag. Portland jetport and my home address is less than 40 minutes apart, yet my bag did not arrive at my home until 8:30 p.m. and I'm also not confident it would have ever arrived because I called around 7 p.m. and spoke with someone who called the delivery service to ask their ETA. I paid $25 to check my bag and yet it was lost. What did I pay for?! If I can help it, I will NEVER fly United again and I'll be certain to tell everyone I know about my experience with this airline."
Cons: "Deverted to Newark to get to portland"
Pros: "Very polite, upbeat crew"
Cons: "Newark airport a mess!"
Cons: "This flight was cancelled and the later flights to Portland were all full, so I was offered a flight to Boston instead, with no refund for the bus ticket from Boston to Portland, and of course my bag did not arrive with me."
Pros: "Not much to say about an hour flight. Coffee could not be served due to weather conditions, not airlines fault."
Pros: "I didn't use the service. But it did look like good"
Cons: "The little packages of Asian mix and Ranch mix that they give you with your soft drink. And the snacks you could buy were limited to one thing--tapas."
