Pros: "Very clean aircrafts"
Cons: "Don't like how you have to pay extra to pick your seat. This is something that budget airlines usually do, so I was surprised Delta did this.

I would choose United over Delta, as they don't force you to pay extra to sit with those you are traveling with."

Cons: "On the red eye from Anchorage to LAX in Business class the A321 was ok as far as comfort. Same duration flight fromLAX to MIA, same plane, but we received a nice pillow and blanket, as well as a little travel kit and bottle of water. Seems strange there are different standards for the same duration"

Cons: "Being put in seat 30E when there was plenty of other seats available."
Pros: "Flight attendant was dilligent"
Cons: "Entertainment system went down toward the beginning of the flight. The crew seemed irritable, but that was probably because people were upset about the entertainment system. We had to listen to a loooong speech about their credit card. I, personally, don’t like sales pitches over the intercom in the middle of a flight. Had the movies been working, it would’ve paused during the long speech. Not cool at all!"
Pros: "I am so glad that there is a direct flight from Des Moi es to Philly. Our flight home arrived a little early and the crew was very responsive and professional."
Cons: "Never given instructions on use if inflight WiFi. No food service on a three hour flight???"
Cons: "Flights from PDX to BOS cancelled. Rerouted to PHX. All flights out of BOS, DC, Philly cancelled. I missed my Habitat for Humanity trip, not getting any refunds on flights or hotels. Out thousands and no one is helping me."
Pros: "Seats were nice, service came pretty quickly considering the size of the plane, boarding went reasonably quick"
Cons: "Started boarding and didn't announce another delay till we're on the aircraft, sitting in the gate for an hour and a half. My audio jack was broken and regardless, it will still trying to charge me for everything even though i was force to be squashed between two people who are also frustrated about sitting doing nothing."

Cons: "this flight was delayed going both directions."
Pros: "Sad to say nothing"
Cons: "- boarding is poor in NY - service in plane extremely bad. Need to train their flight agents -they stole perfumes ((4) bottles and my watch Overall the worst airline I flew so far"
Pros: "Safe, efficient and pleasant flight. I would fly American again. I appreciate getting a soda and snack included."
Cons: "No movie. I got "spoiled" on flight from Seattle to Phoenix with a movie perk. Was looking forward to another on the 2nd leg of our trip. I thought maybe it was an "American" thing. ... but apparently just got lucky on first leg."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and i have to miss my connecting flight."
Pros: "Surprising seat comfort in economy."
Pros: "Food and movies"
Pros: "The AA staff was very friendly. The flight was late due to weather however it did not affect our connection. I believe I paid more more my seat class which proved a power outlet."
Cons: "I really couldn't rate the food or entertainment because there wasn't any."
Pros: "I paid for extra leg room and I got it. The only thing I was in the row right behind first class they require you to put all of your carry-on above even a purse. I had never had that before but I guess that's common practice."
Cons: "Lousy food. Cramped seats, try to make you pay extra for seats to sit together,"
Cons: "Poor snack options"
Cons: "The seats in first class were actually pretty uncomfortable. The backrest has a strange curve. I think economy would have been better."
Pros: "Outstanding crew and pilot dealt with some tough weather issues"
Pros: "Other than a 2 hour delay due to a mechanical issue (identified after everyone boarded) the flight was ok. No electical connections for equipment. That would be an improvement. Also, out of a lot of meals that people request, and that was at the beginning of service in the premium seats."
Pros: "The crew kept us informed as to why we didn''t leave the gate on time; they served beverages and snacks in an efficient manner. Once we got to Dallas we were early, he made up time in the air and the captain informed us that the gate was not ready to receive the plane. We waited about 15 minutes and then we got to the gate."
Cons: "Checking one bag took 30 minutes. Very stressful"
Cons: "Why are there no more blankets?!?! Or if there are - they are for First Class only. Ridiculous"
Pros: "Entrtainment and food."
Cons: "Crew service and attention very poor. Terrible experience with flight reconnection for me and my group of 5 people. Had to wait 5 hours for the crew to confirm ticketing, w.e were lied to and watched how others got preference before us. Crew gave us inconsistent explanations and had no knowledge of how to solve the problem."
Pros: "A great ride."
Cons: "No space in the overhead bin for my section because they were filled with bags that were much bigger than carryon size."
Pros: "Not crowd, got a exit row seat. Plenty of room"
