Cons: "All Good stuff"
Pros: "Funny crew members and very friendly captain"
Pros: "Crew was great. Delta auto rebooking caused me to miss my next flight"
Cons: "Contacting me before rebooking would have saved me $400"
Pros: "Amazing service and F&B offered was wonderful"
Cons: "No room to move, too hot, no sound when trying to watch movies."
Pros: "I have flown with Delta for a number of trips now. I seem to receive middle seat allocations even with the freqent flyers partnership with Virgin Velosity program shared."
Cons: "My seat allocation."
Pros: "Seat was decent and only a $10 upgrade. Worth it!"
Cons: "Wasn’t clear what boarding group was up. I don’t usually fly delta so maybe I’m just not used to the system but something on the video screen at the gate saying where they were in boarding would have helped. I wasn’t the only one that seemed lost."
Pros: "It’s become a mediocre airline."
Pros: "My flight from STX was delayed some 30 minutes. That made a dent in the 57 minutes I had to catch my Delta flight. Naturally we landed at gate A2 and Delta was boarding at Terminal 2 gate B9. Me with my knee replacement can’t run and my wheelchair was not in sight. Thank goodness I had a carryon with wheels. I was out of breath when I got to Delta and the last passengers were boarding. I started panicking and interrupted the ground steward who asked me to wait with a smile. I waited . So when I told them I was standby they waved me on after showing my passport. I couldn’t find my boarding pass. I was pleasantly surprised to get a seat in first class. I was so thankful. My first time. Good things come to those who wait! Thank you Delta."
Cons: "poor hospitality by cabin crews cabin crews are very stingy in providing drinks"
Pros: "We landed"
Cons: "They need to raise the temp on these planes. Give free blankets or put a warning on the boarding pass saying that you will freeze."
Pros: "The crew were fantastic and tried their best the delay."
Cons: "Delayed flight. 2 hours delay. Had to rebook a connecting flight and hence was very tight to board the next flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed until it made me miss my connection"
Pros: "Ended up with earlyish boarding and exit row legroom."
Cons: "Online check-in was an ultimately unsuccessful confusing nightmare. Having either a codeshare flight or a passenger with a new passport would probably have been enough to break the online check-in system, and we had both. Straightened out in the airport, but required waiting in a long line where late arrivals for flights an bhour before ours were given priority. Frustrating not to have a seat assignment until boarding had already begin (would have gone SWA if we wanted that mess)."
Pros: "The staff was polite and snacks were good (healthy options)."
Cons: "Nothing was terrible, but due to the short flights I assume they don’t worry about having planes with entertainment available."
Pros: "The plane had a ton of room."
Cons: "Then our connecting flight had extremely rude crew members who made us feel as though our experience was less important than the “sky members”. Super HOT on the plane as well."
Pros: "The crew was nice. The cabin very clean. Flight very comfortable"
Cons: "The landing was a little rough"
Pros: "Truly, everyone of the flight attendants were delightful, professional and caring."
Cons: "Food. I didn’t remember to bring food this time but thankfully I was far enough forward there was some. Thanks"
Cons: "Flight attendant from IND to Minneapolis must have had a rough evening or bad morning. Service in airplane is usually poor but this one was worse. Bumping most of the passenger when passing, handing drinks behind his back, not smiling."
Pros: "Delta in general but , they let me stranded, i had to find a eay to fly home, they did Not help finding a next flight.. i missed my flight because of WX"
Cons: "Lack of interest towards the passenger and client, i had to do it my self"
Pros: "Short flight."
Pros: "I like that Delta is efficient and the service is consistent. I pick Delta because I know what I’m going to get . I like that I can choose the entertainment I want and that everything is at my fingertips including flight info, food and beverage options, etc. it’s relatively comfortable but it’s not near the level of Virgin America or JetBlue."
Cons: "I’m not sure if it is due to LAX construction but it is chaotic at the airport. It is super confusing where you need to go, drop bags, etc. the weird part is Check in was in terminal 3 and gate at terminal 2. That is a long walk back and forth. There is probably a more efficient way of doing this. Besides that, they need to do a better job communicating that seats are changing and not Reggy before boarding. Though I can understand it can get crazy because people will panic but it’s not great heading up to enter in not knowing if you are sitting in window when you picked it for a reason. Otherwise, everything went smoothly."
Cons: "Older plane and seemingly frustrated crew. They had very little patience."
Cons: "3 hrs delay My first fly was cancell Atl- Mty So ,they booking me next fly atl-Qro I have to stay weathing 9 hrs and just water and cookies"
Cons: "No on board entertainment."
Pros: "We finally got home"
Pros: "I LOVED the 2 seater plane, so comfortable traveling with a companion and not having the third person."
Cons: "Boarding. It seems that it would be smarter to board from the back forward. I didn't have any food so I rated that wrong. Maybe add an N/A to the survey."
Pros: "Flight attendants were extremely nice to my baby and me. Didn't feel rushed. Nice variety of snacks."
Pros: "Complimentary meal and entertainment, very good service from flight attendants."

Pros: "New equipment"
Cons: "Late departure"
Cons: "Boarding in LA was. Mess"
Pros: "friendly flight crew"
Pros: "Seats in economy had a little more elbow room and space. They offered free movies and free satelite tv as well as better snack options."
Cons: "Not being able to pick seats until the gate. Traveled with 4 friends and all of us sat separate. 4 of us in middle seats."
Pros: "2 seats by windows, rather than 3, and the roominess plus ease of using the media tv screen and options. the beverage options and food options were plentiful as well as good quality."
Pros: "I liked the new plane! It seemed like there was just a bit more room. Compared to my flight going out with American, Delta is a much nicer experience."
Cons: "No entertainment - just a long boring flight. Should have some sort of entertainment for the longer flights."
Cons: "Spent $25 on Main Cabin Preferred when I thought it was Economy Comfort. Did not really change my experience and i'm out $25."

Cons: "Im 6'2. My knees still are hurting due to the horrible leg room"
Pros: "Flight was quick, crew efficient"
Cons: "Despite having this flight booked for over a month I was not issued a seat until gate check in and had to sit and wait till they figured out their "overbooked" situation. I had to approach the desk four times because they wouldn't give me any indication of what zone I should line up for, and the desk crew were rude. Ended up being the last to board."
Pros: "That it's over"
Cons: "the 1 hour delay, when we arrived we sat for another hour and I missed my international flight"
Pros: "Delta is cheap, probably for a reason. Also had no food available on a 3 hour flight."
Cons: "Delta lost our bags immediately. We were two hours early and had more than an hour between our connecting flights. Our connecting flights were literally next door to each other. However, our bag didn't make it to the connecting flight. No excuse, no explanation. We were on a 3 night vacation, and we didn't get our bags for more than 30 hours."
Cons: "Shitty service, and made me miss my flight."
Pros: "We ask for help with a 80 year old woman that needed assistance signed up for help o get her from one terminal to her next carnet flight no one accepted her."
Cons: "Only saw what was supposed to have happened but didn’t no help from the air line period."
Pros: "empty plane awesome"
Pros: "Boarding was fast and efficient"
Cons: "The crew in first class was indifferent at best. They seemed to hate life and their customers alike. Not what you expect when you pay extra for first class."
Pros: "Crew was great, pilot was amazing through the rough turbulence. Thank you!"
Cons: "Either less stingybwith Basic Economy or take one less chance to repeat that it is basic."
Pros: "Crew was awesome!"

Cons: "This is my second time bad experience with ticketing desk crew. The lady (Her name is Maria) at issuing boarding passes was real rude. First of all she doesn’t know how to enter India OCI (Overseas Citizen of India) information. She was keep saying I do not have a visa to go to India. Which I do not"
Pros: "Missed the flight due to delays so I am stuck in MIA until tomorrow evening"
Cons: "Have flights be on time"
Cons: "The female staff at the desk where the luggage is dropped and boarding passes are issued was very rude. A little smile makes a difference vs being rude to customers. Apparently she needed to know that she is getting paid because customers like us choose to fly AA or BA"
Pros: "The service was very good"
Cons: "All was good"
Pros: "Checking in with my Mum who needs assistance was excellent."
Cons: "Lack of Entertainment."
Pros: "Well where should I start The plane was old and dirty The audio outlet was clogged so I could not listen to music or watch tv The flight was bumpy The crew was overwhelmed"
Pros: "Puntual, connexion gates very closed,"
Cons: "I need to paid 100$ or more to have a seat"
Cons: "Smelling booze on obviously wasted passenger who invaded my personal space multiple times."
Pros: "Meal and drink service was excellent"
Cons: "Economy plus is packed liked sardines and difficult to move from side to side. Also upgrade doesn’t include priority seating. It should be included in any seating upgrade."

Cons: "had to take another flight, ticket agent was able to change me to a different flight on JAL. however, JAL could not access the ticket info and ticket agent would not take my payment. result was missing that flight, ticket manager told me it's my fault and tough luck no refund. American airlines told me the same, ended up losing my money for the ticket purchase. i booked another new flight with another airline direct. worst experience in my life using kayak."
Pros: "Everything was very adequate, nothing special about this flight."
Cons: "Takeoff was delayed about 35 minutes just due to traffic on the runway. Out of all the flights on our international trip, the only issues we experienced were with American airports. You would think an issue like this would be readily solved by foreplanning, but instead we sat on the tarmac just waiting for our turn to take off. Some form of entertainment on the plane would've been nice. Or at least a place to charge electronics. Our bags arrived at our destination before we did, and although I immediately received a text alerting me to this fact, I was dismayed to find out they were in an entirely different terminal of the DFW airport. After 24 hours of travel and very little sleep, instead of just walking off the plane and retrieving our bags, our group of 20 weary souls had to first determine where our luggage was, catch a bus to a different terminal ( because of the size of our group we couldn't all fit on the first bus, so had to wait for the second bus), and then track down our bags. American Airlines did absolutely nothing to help make this experience any easier for us. Five of our party were in wheelchairs due to various levels of exhaustion or ailment, and all we were told is "I'm sorry but there's nothing we can do." This little adventure delayed us about an hour."
Pros: "The flight was a quick 39 minutes from Chicago, the staff was friendly. Good flight."
Cons: "It's snowing!"
Pros: "Staff was great. choice of food/beverages."
Cons: "The people in front of us were having a party all night during the quiet period."
Pros: "Food was surprisingly good. Smooth ride could have been just good weather, but it was nice. We got in early!!!"
Cons: "Legroom was ok for me because I'm short. Others may have needed more."
Cons: "Domestic flights with American are atrocious. The plans cram too many people into such a small space. Leg room is non-existent."
Cons: "Food, beverages, service"
Cons: "Nickel and diming people for every little thing. I didn't mean to select a paid seat upon making my reservation on-line, and I couldn't get it to come off. Had to pay anyway."
Cons: "Our flight was delayed for 1 hour, the cabin crew was slightly rude and cold. Did not feel welcome"
Pros: "Entertainment was available in front of us on a screen versus an onboard app, which was much appreciated."
Cons: "Oh man, I have so many things I need to say. I tried giving AA a chance, but compared to when I flew on WestJest two months prior for almost the exact same trip (I flew to San Francisco versus San Jose that time), WestJet was by far more superior in terms of customer service, boarding organization, and friendliness. First of all, what bugged me profusely was the lack of seat selection and the crazy pricing for certain seats. On WestJet, the emergency exit seats were available without any additional cost, yet AA was charging $66 USD to sit there. Furthermore, seats closer to Business class also carried a charge of $25 (or something like that) - ONLY because you get to board sooner. I would understand if there was extra legroom involved, but really, it's just a matter of sitting and getting off before anyone else. If anything, those seats should be given to passengers who have tight connecting flights and need to get off asap. even in those cases, you shouldn't be charging someone almost $30 just so they can make it to their next flight that YOUR company arranged within such a short time frame. But the most annoying thing about my trip with AA was the fact that I had to take out all of my belongings from my carry-on and carry them in my arms because there was no room left in the overhead compartments. Excuse me?? How is there not enough room? So I had to walk with my laptop, my iPad, my Beats headphones, my laptop and iPad charger, amongst other things, in my hands to the aircraft. Thank goodness I found a plastic bag, because otherwise I probably would have lost something expensive on that plane. Furthermore, as I walked to my seat, there was most definitely places that I could have stowed my carry-on luggage in the overhead compartments. You shouldn't let people put things like purses and bags of food in the overhead, when those can be stowed underneath the seats in front."
Pros: "There was a female flight attendant who was extremely rude and coarse with everyone on the flight. It was painful to watch and annoying to experience. I will pass on BA in the future. People who dislike other people should not be placed in customer service roles."
Pros: "Boarded on time."
Cons: "Left 25 minutes late. when I asked the flight attendant to let me move further to the front so I can leave the plane quick and not miss my connection I was told that there were no other seats. I looked and YES there was at least 5 other seats in rows much closer than mine! Also upon arrival we did not get off the plane for 15 minutes . My connection was boarding already. I had to go from gate E 6 to gate B14 in a flash at the age of 66 I barely made it out of breath and they were about to close the doors! I was not a happy camper when I was told in the flight 5406 that I had plenty of time!!! not to worry!!!"
Pros: "It was an ok airplane, entertainment system worked"
Cons: "The flight was delayed 2.15 hours and didn't even offered water or anything, after a while they said if we wanted we could go out of the plane... really bad!"
Pros: "Great flight, Fantastic landing in Charlotte. l was pleased with everything on flight home."
Cons: "My 11am flight had engine problems, so at 1pm they asked if anyone wanted to leave and take the 2pm flight to Charlotte. About 30 people said yes, as I did too. After running across Heathrow to make flight, we got on plane and Waited....seems after running a Mile across the airport, they Decided to HOLD the Flight and have everyone from 11am flight take the 2pm flight to Charlotte. All the baggage had to be taken from 11am flight and brought to 2pm flight. Delay for take off was almost 2 HOURS!!! Instead of arriving in Charlotte at 3pm, we were Leaving at that time!!! Didn't get to Charlotte until almost 9pm. NO ONE on Flight from 11am was Happy about this."
Pros: "We were delayed because of weather yet the crew kept us aware of what was going on and still got us there on time. Great crew. Very polite and professional."
Pros: "Courteous and polite"
Cons: "Nothing was a great flight"
Cons: "Had to cancel cruise but could not cancel flights without paying fees that were half the fare price. Would have been cheaper if we bought direct from the airline."
Pros: "There was an air traffic back-up for a few minutes, and instead of just letting us sit there wondering what was going on, the pilot gave us periodic updates on what was happening, which made the process much easier. Also, the flight attendants were friendly, which makes a big difference."
Pros: "Swift boarding."
Cons: "temperature was too hot and stuffy."
Pros: "My Unit did not work. The crew tried to fix it but couldn't"
Cons: "I was unable to use my entertainment unit, computer:tv"
Pros: "There were free movies and screen for each seat. It seemed like a new plane. Thank you"
Pros: "American routinely cancels flights between CLT and TRI. this is the fourth time this year ive had to rent a car and drive the 3 hours at a cost of $130-300 each time. They are a terrible airline in terms of customer service. If they can't serve the route they shouldn't sell tickets!"
Pros: "The seats were quite big and comfortable in economy"
Cons: "Flight cancelled, and email came through to let us know only 20 minutes before boarding. We weren't rebooked on a new flight, we had to call and wait an hour to finally speak to a representative to help rebook us. No flights available for 24 hours, no help finding overnight lodging, new clothes bc checked luggage was lost, $$ for taxis, meals, etc"
Pros: "My mom was trying to fly from crp to San Diego. Horrible time, flight delayed, canceled, rerouted.. No food.. Never fly through the Dallas again. !! Might not fly American!"
Cons: "Copy everything I just wrote!"
Pros: "Crew was nice, drinks"
Cons: "Ended up landing in Oklahoma, no hotel available even with the voucher, no food in airport,"
