Pros: "same"

Pros: "The flight attendants were great."
Cons: "Felt like a sardine . Just like ALL fights these days."

Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "Delta crew are lazy...they wont help u out to store ur bags."

Pros: "Comfortable flight with pleasant staff. I slept most of the way."
Cons: "I was satisfied with this flight and did not experience and discomfort during it"

Pros: "Friendly people and clean plane"
Cons: "They lost my luggage, I hope it shows up shortly"

Pros: "on time, clean, prompt. no problem."

Pros: "Thomas our steward was excellent."

Cons: "VERY bumpy ride- scary"

Cons: "The food service was way to rushed , no time to relax with a cocktail before dinner was being served. The warm mixed nuts were stale tasting. The soup was excellent. The breakfast was not edible . Not your usual standard, Delta. Makes me sad as my late husband was a million miler plus and we have always been loyal to you, Seems like you have too many passengers in business class to provide food and service you can be proud of"

Pros: "They have the flight very well planned out, you get frequent drnks and food initially and then they turn the lights out for a good amount of time so that people can rest. Then, they come by again before landing with more drinks and a snack. Very well coordinated."
Cons: "Really, my only complaint is that after leaving Atlanta ~ 4 pm,,you arrive in Europe at 8 am. The first day is very difficult to adjust to. I would much rather arrive in Europe at night, and get to rest for a night before starting."

Cons: "While there was plenty of space on the aircraft, I was forced to gate check my carry on."

Cons: "No power to charge"

Pros: "Great!"
Cons: "Great!"

Cons: "Like everyone says - could use more leg room. Theres no way to stretch legs which is a problem on ling flights. Why not lift up the seats by a few inches? This would create more leg room underneath without changing the number of seats and doesnt impact the head room much."

Pros: "Nice crew and good equipment"
Cons: "Bad bad food very disappointing"

Cons: "cramped in economy class"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "Employees at the Atlanta airport have a SERIOUS chip on their shoulders. Just when you thought seats couldn't get any smaller or closer together. Paid for priority boarding but the boarding pass still said zone 3. Employees could care less."

Pros: "we got on another air conditioned plane"
Cons: "We initially were put on a plane with defective air conditioning.... it took 90 minutes to finally decide to put us on another plane. The older planes have hardly any room under the seat in the isle seats."

Cons: "Delayed flight, mechanical"

Pros: "The crew was very friendly and ensured you had everything to your comfort . Great selection on movies . The food and wine selection was divine. Great service"

Pros: "Extremely uncomfortable the entire flight. Seats too close together, then when you recline you hit the person behind you."
Cons: "Good tv shows, friendly attendants"

Pros: "The cinnamon cookies, the in-flight movie selection, and the helpful flight crew helped make this flight not as bad as it could have been."
Cons: "There was an infant in the seat directly behind me that chose to cry and scream through a large part of the flight. The mother of this child did not/was not able to keep the child from crying. Even with headphones on, this child's crying persisted to pierce the ears of every passenger within 5 rows of it."

Pros: "lte leaving Houston, cancelled flight back from Atlanta, reset to 3 hrs later, wound up leaving 12 hrs later."

Cons: "Did not have the movie that showed in the sky magazine. The touch screen didn't sense touch very well."

Pros: "The in-flight service was extremely good."
Cons: "The seat was slightly too short for me. If Delta provided a soft mattress cover, slimiler to that of Virgin Atlantic, then the flat bed would be far more comfortable."

Pros: "Bags arrived on the belt quickly"
Cons: "Why is there not saying precheck to use after you've been funneled through customs? ATL is advanced enough to have kiosk for arrival, even for those confused and not with global entry, but then forces you to wait in security line instead of the typically faster tea precheck line. Every minute I'm in line, I'm not spending money"

Pros: "Staff friendly & made sure that everyone on the plane was aware of someone with a peanut allergy so no peanuts were to be eaten. Ground staff worked hard to get us rebooked & on our way as our first flight was so late that we missed our connection. So glad to finally see a charging port as our long haul flight didn't have them."
Cons: "Not the crews fault but this was the slowest disembarking process on a plane that I have ever seen. Hard to get comfortable in the seat. Not able to sit with husband as it was a rebooked flight & the flight was full."

Cons: "No free meals."

Pros: "Not much to like since the flight was canceled."
Cons: "Flight was canceled. The system tried to automatically rebook us but gave us a new itinerary from our original departure point, apparently un aware that we had already left. So, we were stuck in Atlanta airport with no good way to our final destination. Instead of waiting for 22 hours for the next available flight, or driving for 7 hours from Atlanta to Cincinnati, we had to fly into another city and drive to Cincinnati from there AT OUR OWN EXPENSE. It was a rebooking nightmare."

Pros: "Good experience given that it was a long flight."
Cons: "How about meal service on the 5hr flight from Atlanta to Portland? The food for purchase options left much to be desired."

Pros: "at least, i got to Haiti"
Cons: "delays + long flight."

Pros: "Food and wine"
Cons: "Seats are difficult to sleep in"

Pros: "The captain and crew did an incredible job with taking care of the passengers. Considering the long, long layover and the mechanical problems the plane was having. The free entertainment, pillow and blanket and a few complementary drinks went a long ways too."
Cons: "Almost missing my flight because of being detained. Not having my luggage at destination."

Pros: "Not the newest 777, but everything went well on this flight - food, comfort and service were all first rate in Delta's business class section."
Cons: "The salad was the only weak point in the dinner."

Pros: "The vegan meals were very good."

Pros: "Everything on Delta's part was very well done, and all of their employees were great. Arrived a little early, and very nice entertainment system over their wifi"
Cons: "Expensive ticket, ATL airport staff rude (not Delta employees)"

Cons: "Seats most uncomfortable on any flight I have ever taken"

Cons: "Food"

Pros: "I only fly Delta because they are consistent and efficient and very courteous."

Cons: "Customer service was terrible and the flight departed before the departure time; as a result I missed my returning flight although i got to the airport an hour early."

Pros: "The gate agent was outstanding and extremely pleasant. The flight to OKC was only half full so the Crew moved everyone around so there was extra room on every row...that doesn't happen very often so I was excited to have extra leg and seat room!"

Pros: "Easy check in and boarding, and flight left on time."

Pros: "It was a lot more comfortable. There were not many people so it was nice to stretch out ."
Cons: "The plane was fairly dated."

Pros: "on time departure and return"

Pros: "I broke down and got one of the comfort plus seats and that was very comfortable."

Pros: "I had someone waiting on me at the gate to escort me to the plane! Great service!"
Cons: "I called the American 1-800 number and was initially greeted with the worst customer service I’ve experienced. I wish i knew her name. I hung up and called back and was helped so well by Anna."

Pros: "Nothing!"
Cons: "The spacing between rows, the aisle and size of seats were terrible. I will go back flying British Airways and Lufthansa!!!!!"

Pros: "Eventually we got to hartford"
Cons: "Delayed leaving ATL, sat on the Tarmac for 30 mins. Leaving CLT was delayed 1.5 hrs for mechanical issue because it problem occurred during a shift change. Also was never given the opportunity to choose a seat assignment on CLT-BDL so I ended up in the very last middle seat."

Pros: "Safety"

Pros: "La atención"
Cons: "Nada"

Pros: "One of my flight was cancelled I have to repay for a ticket which did not make sense"
Cons: "Why I have to pay for another ticket for my son when did it and then"

Pros: "American Airlines for me is always better than Spirit but not as good as Jet Blue."
Cons: "This trip was different except that I was disalpointed they didn't warn passengers about the whole island power outage until the plane was landing. No doubt this made a more convenient flight for them but I will always value a company that puts its customers first. The scene at the airport was very chaotic with reservations scrambled, bags missing and cars being rented by employees with flashlights."

Pros: "Flights were on time if not early-Excellent"
Cons: "E tickets or even itinerary should have terminals listed on E ticket LGA-got off at Am terminal B to find out I was leaving from C Had to take shuttle to C. Return to NY same issue-had to ask what terminal I was at To notify my driver once I was off the plane."

Pros: "The crew was friendly and helpful. Very pleasant"
Cons: "There was no Chardonnay available."

Cons: "No gluten free snacks"

Pros: "The female flight attendant attempted to fill the shortcoming of her coworker"
Cons: "Condescending attitude towards bodies on the flight from the male flight attendant"

Pros: "I like that the crew was professional and courteous."
Cons: "That I was there and hour before my flight and my seat was given up. I didn't like that people are allowed to retract all the way making my flight uncomfortable."

Cons: "Not allowed single single baggage,"

Cons: "Flight was late arriving to Atl flight was late arriving to Chicago made me miss my connection to FNT American rebooked (after they told me they hold plane I ran through 5 concourses to get there n American still left me and several other passengers) through United late flight to FNT a 4 hr lay-over turned into 6hrs 2 plane changes cause of mechanical issues n had to run 2 concourses over still was late leaving and arriving to FNT...."

Come on AA...really you can't do better than this?? Seats were uncomfortable as can be and food weas slightly worse than average airplane food. funny thing is I always fly delta and delta partners but this time I thought I would go the cheaper route. Never again will I fly American anything anywhere. Very disappointed. There is nothing positive to say about anything except the fact that we didn't crash. We were also delayed 2 hours and sitting on the Tarmac. Horrid experience."

Cons: "Bad weather cancelled my flight. I probably won't get my money back. I was stuck at airport and had to pay hundreds of dollars to get home by deltA. Grace Elizabeth"

Pros: "I'm alive"
Cons: "Nothing went correct on that flight. They left an airport with low fuel which resulted with us being stuck somewhere over 90 min"

Pros: "Most of the staff were helpful"
Cons: "Some were not"

Pros: "Nothing"

Cons: "American Airlines tends to ova book that makes things hard. Sat by n watched agents hv to handle to many problems waiting 4 my plane. Flight was delayed to ny from Chicago by 1hour n half. Then no plugs in Chicago airport gates to charge cell phone. They make too much money to be that far behind times."

Pros: "The crew was super nice and professional. The flight was really smooth."
Cons: "I can't say anything bad. It was a great experience."

Pros: "The A321 from DFW to SAN was very nice and comfortable."
Cons: "The Super 80 from ATL to DFW was the hottest aircraft I've ever been on. There was essentially zero airflow making the cabin 95 degrees and 100% humidity. It would have been cooler to stand outside. It was like this when I walked on the jet until well after we leveled off at altitude and then from when we landed (throttles at idle) until we deplaned. We had to wait for a gate for 20 minutes on the Tarmac and then when we got to a gate we had to wait for a gate agent to move the jet bridge for 10 minutes. It was miserable. If you all know you have a low flow aircraft then hurry to hook up the air conditioning cart in both ATL and DFW, fix the APU to produce more air, or don't shut the engines down when there is no gate agent at the aircraft. My clothes were soaked in sweat making this the worst trip I've ever taken. Come on American. You can do better."

Cons: "Great"

Cons: "The flight was delayed 2 hours and there were no TV on a cross country flight."

Pros: "Roomy & comfortable seating for such a small aircraft"
Cons: "Late boarding, over an hour"
