Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews

Pros: "The crew was nice."
Cons: "Having cocktails available on-board"
Cons: "Boarding announcements were hardly audible. We chose comfort seats for extra payment but that still did not turn out to be comfort class. Seat classes are confusing. No temperature was taken before boarding."
Cons: "The wheel to my luggage broke off in deltas care so if that could have not happened it would have been way better."
Cons: "Everything was great and went smoothly."
Cons: "Love delta. Everything was excellent"
Pros: "Crew was very nice and accommodating"
Cons: "Food service"
Pros: "Great crew"
Pros: "Clear announcements, nicely stated mask rem8nders, center seats open"
Pros: "Very clean, kind w mask instructions, like boarding back to front"
Pros: "I liked the fact I was put into a quality seat after I had booked a normal economy seat. Nice upgrade. I got lots of leg room."
Cons: "The flight was delayed because of a maintenance issue. We made up some of the time, but it was an issue."
Pros: "I love that the plane has extra space available between seats (with no one in the middle) & that everyone was encouraged to keep their mask on at all times."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "This COVID to be over"
Cons: "Comfier seats"
Pros: "Sanitized, open middle seats, comfortable"
Cons: "We were stuck on the tarmac for 40+ minutes due to our gate being blocked by another plane. We almost missed our connection and had to run through the airport with our luggage and the staff at our second gate yelling “hurry up” at us like it was our fault."
Pros: "Seat size"
Cons: "Everything was just fine"
Cons: "We had a 2.5 hour delay because there was someone missing in the crew. It sounded like it hadn’t been properly planned for the flight so it was frustrating. However, once that person showed up, everything was great and the crew was very sweet"
Pros: "Covid safety protocols and people following was excellent."
Cons: "Serve alcohol :)"
Pros: "One flight attendant was adamant about a passenger across from me, covering his nose AND mouth during the flight and constantly checked to make sure he was following the rules."
Cons: "The safety instructions portion of the flight was not thorough. They just held up the large card and stood there. No true demonstration which was important to me as I was sitting in the emergency exit row."
Pros: "As expected of Delta. With Covid, even the food service understandably was limited. They had prepackaged goodies, albeit not much flexibility, but I had no complaints. Mid row was empty per Covid, for flight comfort, this was somewhat a plus. Knowing air was filtered with HEPA filters every 2 minutes with fresh oxygen and outside air mix was also reassuring."
Pros: "Great crew and friendly"
Pros: "Everything was amazing"
Cons: "Nothing really."
Cons: "Well if my future father in law was on the flight it would have been wonderful, but he passed away July 7th, and I did get refunded, and we are mourning his loss and keep getting notifications about the flight and emails which makes it very difficult mentally. So it would be nice if Delta would get their process of refunds especially when it's a death to maybe not get notified. I was the one that purchased the tickets for him in April."
Pros: "Crew great....moved passengers around near us for Covid related separation."
Cons: "Cramped.....too many seats in too small of a plane....I'm 6ft / 190 lbs"
Pros: "Crew was very attentive. I appreciated the extra spacing between passengers."
Cons: "I would have liked to see alcohol served."
Pros: "Crew was night seat sucked plane was cramped"
Pros: "Empty middle seat; disinfectant wipes. I know these measures were implemented because of COVID but I wouldn’t mind having these last past the pandemic!"
Cons: "Good for now"
Cons: "There should not be a pay wall around the internet in today's day and age"
Pros: "The plane was very new everything was good"
Cons: "Nothing considering the situation"
Cons: "The food service on the 3 hour leg but we knew that ahead of time so..."
Cons: "Best option across the pond, amazing upgrade prices"
Pros: "It was horrible. Delta really should have cancelled and refunded the flight altogether."
Pros: "The entertainment was good."
Cons: "The check in and boarding process in Incheon was terrible! My flight ticket was printed and had the wrong name, which the agent at the check in desk did not catch. It was not until I went to the security line when they found a mismatched name. I was asked to go through security THREE TIMES. And then at the gate, I was supposedly "randomly selected" for ANOTHER swab/swipe security check. The flight itself was uncomfortable. There are not enough bathrooms for the number of people seated on the flight. The entertainment was the only excellent and recommendable thing about this delta flight."
Pros: "Overall experience was awesome. Always love to fly delta. Nice spacious and clean aircraft. Enjoyed the entertainment system."
Pros: "The KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring when there was confusion with my ticket."
Cons: "I booked KLM flights (Cork - Tampa return) but the planes were in fact Aer Lingus and Delta. So I have no idea what KLM is like. When I checked in at Cork the ground staff could only give me a boarding card for the first flight. For the second one she said I would have to go to the Delta counter in Amsterdam. It was difficult to find a counter there or staff as check-in was all by computer. The computer kept saying 'error' when I put in my code. I eventually was directed to a KLM desk (nicely hidden). I was told that my seat no longer existed. At this point the flight was ready to board. Thankfully the KLM ground staff were extremely helpful and reassuring and upgraded my ticket to economy comfort. On the way back, I could only get a boarding card for my first flight. The second two I had to collect at the boarding gate of the second flight."
Cons: "Dutch sub titels on fims would be good"
Pros: "1. Smooth flight itself and informed by captain well on expected time of arrival with frequent updates"
Cons: "1. I already had a tight connection and let the flight attendant know that I was concerned due to the delay. She seemed very laissez faire and there was no information about the connections gate overhead or when I got off the plane. I think that if the flight is delayed, the airline should let passengers know where the close connection gate assignments are to save them time (my flight landed ten minutes after my connection was boarding). 2. The carry on luggage section was impossibly small so I had to gatecheck my bag and it took five minutes to get my bag back. Given the tight connection, this created additional anxiety."
Cons: "Seats are thick but zero lumbar. Back too short at shoulders and I'm only 5'8""
Pros: "ABSOLUTELY NOTHING"
Cons: "Flight was delayed over 3 hours because they had No crew to operate the flight! Such poor customer service on Americans part as well. No answers and rude agents when you tried to ask any questions"
Pros: "The ground crew worked really hard to get us going."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1.5 hours."
Pros: "The speed at which everything was handled."
Cons: "It was great"
Pros: "The crew was great, the pilot was talented and the on boarding process was quick and smooth."
Pros: "Nothing was enjoyable."
Cons: "The flight was 4 hours late to leave and American did nothing to try and remedy the situation. Unacceptable that we are this late. I missed my meetings and they won’t offer any kind of voucher for future travel. But yet we have to pay for change fees!?!? I will absolutely avoid flying American."
Cons: "I tried to mark all EXCELLENT, but I couldn't get the circle to color in the circle excellent."
Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth flight, friendly staff."
Cons: "Small plane, kept hitting my head on overhead bins"
Pros: "Service and flight was excellent"
Cons: "They were great"
Pros: "Flight was smooth...take off to landing"
Pros: "Nothing. This was the worst flight I’ve ever been on."
Cons: "Pretty much everything. The flight was delayed for mechanical reasons. Then they boarded us and we sat for 3 hours on the tarmac because one of the air conditioning packs was broken. When we finally arrived, I found out my bag was lost. The worst flight of my life."
Cons: "Maybe had a flight crew on time and a plane that wasn’t 30 years old"
Cons: "Flight delayed 24 hrs"
Cons: "Tray table was dirty"
Cons: "Flight was 45 mins late. No drinks or snacks. Small plane. Forced to valet checkin carryon luggage :/"
Pros: "The fight was awesome from takeoff to landing. This has been one of the first flights that my ears did not pop and hurt in years!!! We took off about 10 minutes late waiting on a crew member but made the time up in the air. Great flight!!"
Pros: "Friendly, professional, polite, perfect."
Pros: "The flight crew were friendly."
Cons: "The boarding staff member was extremely overwhelmed being the only person at the desk. She visibly looked frazzled & made it well known. It made me feel insecure about the flight. Then the maintenance crew didn’t notice that there was a dead bird in one of the engines until after we were fully boarded and had to sit on the plane for an hour over our expected time. I appreciated the fact that they were being through for our safety, but catch that before you have people board."
Pros: "Flights were always on time . Most staff members were friendly. Seats are comfortable. I looove that they allow you a purse and a true carry on ."
Cons: "Movie selection on long flights not impressive ."
Pros: "Not a thing"
Cons: "I wish these airlines would remember that people on the place are PEOPLE. After multiple delays, including one where we sat on a hot plane for over an hour, they did very little to make us comfortable. There's a reason why AA sits right next to United in terms of poor customer experiences"
Pros: "For me, a flight is “excellent” anymore if it’s on time and no one gets booted off the plane. Both flights were early!"
Cons: "Didn’t look he the free snacks."
Cons: "Nothing bad on this particular flight but im traumatized from my auckland to sydney flight"
Pros: "Delays, delays, delays. An initial delay of 1.5 hours due to a switched plane. Then they needed mechanics to check out a bird hit to the plane. That took another 3 hours to happen. And they boarded us first, then found the issue, deplaned us, had a gate switch and then the wait. Very frustrating! Once on board, everything went smoothly as it typically does."
Cons: "The long delay"
Pros: "efficiency of terminal and flight changes at Dallas-Fort-Worth excellent. valet service and complimentary checked standard carry-on bag."
Cons: "Didn't know about close connections and terminal changes until printing boarding passes. Snack offerings are minimal one almost all airlines for regular fares. a tiny wafer cookie or about 5 mini-pretzels are not very impressive. I wold much prefer peanuts to pretzels--an option would be good. The gate of outgoing flight to Bloomington kept changing on phone m messaging shortly before takeoff , about 6 gate changes in 10 minutes. Confusing!"
Pros: "We received an upgrade for our seats, during the flight the staff were very attentive to us. The flight was quiet and calm."
Pros: "Snow ruined flight. Crew was great."
Cons: "No entertainment with this flight. Cookies good."
Pros: "Boarding as quick and efficient. Staff were friendly and courteous"
Cons: "Nothing bad to comment on as the trip was a smooth trip"
Cons: "A few issues: 1) I was not given seat tgth with my 9 year old and was not helped in finding seats together 2) they lost my bag after I took it through customs and I'm still (a week already) waiting for it."
Cons: "Too long of a layover when flying from san diego through phoenix to detroit. Need to look for improvement in scheduling to make this a trip enjoyable."
Cons: "The big delay (almost 4 hours) makes me loose my trip to Canada on the same day."
Pros: "The AA app for entertainment works well, friendly crew."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 90+ minutes, yet they didn't tell anyone until 90 minutes prior to departure. They knew of system delays and should have updated many hours before the flight but they didn't and had us all there very early waiting around doing nothing."
Pros: "Snacks and Beverage"
Pros: "Always on time and always comfortable."
Pros: "The crew is good"
Cons: "Old plane, no entertainment"
Pros: "Easy direct flight from Detroit to Miami. The flight was on time, and we had no problems. The cost of the flight was approximately $180 round trip, which I thought was a good value."
Cons: "Checking a single bag costs $25 each way, which is irritating when they beg to check all the carry-ons at the gate."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "The plane was delayed for two hours!"
Pros: "It was very smooth once we were able to take off!"
Cons: "We were delayed in the plane almost an hour with no cool air. They had technical problems."
Pros: "Clean environment of the terminals and the speed of the shuttle."
Cons: "no comment."
Pros: "Everything was great. Slept the entire flight."
Cons: "Delayed three separate times, American Airlines employees were rude when asked why the flight kept getting delayed. Arrived 3 hours later than expected."
Cons: "We were waiting for 6 hours then our flight got cancelled. We got another flight which is in the second day !! And I am going back to MIAMI on Sunday 7:00 am . What a bad airlines!!"
Cons: "Flight from Ny to Detroit was delayed for 2 hrs. Coming back was worse after multiple delays, they cancelled the flight. they put me on a flight for next day with 2 connections which will reach ny almost 20 hrs later, no aplogises, no hotel room. After more calls put me in another United flight later that night which also finally got cancelled. I had to book a new flight with delta and paid $460 on the spot for that. Still awaiting my refund from American for the return leg which was cancelled and left a lady traveling alone stranded at Detroit airport in the night. Apology or compensation -- forget it, you will never get that! Only now if they can refund my cancelled flight..."
Pros: "Finally getting to my final destination and out of DFW."
Cons: "The flight was originally scheduled to take off at 8:20 pm, but due to several delays did not end up getting off the ground until after 11 pm. After being in the air for about 45 minutes we were informed that there were issues with the engine and that we would be turning around and heading back to Dallas. By this point it was after midnight, and although I was appreciative that safely is a priority, there was no communication as to what the next steps were. After landing we were finally told that we would have to deplane, and after we sat around the gate for awhile we were informed that the flight would be delayed until 5 am. Being 12:50 am at this point a hotel would have been nice, but we were informed that AA was "out of hotels" but that if we wanted we could have a $12 food voucher to use at the one restaurant that was open several terminals over. The AA employee assisting in handing out the food vouchers seemed extremely unapologetic about the situation which didn't help with the frustration everyone was feeling. I will not be booking with AA again, and will be passing along my negative experience to family and friends. It is worth spending the extra money on a ticket for an airline that is more reliable with better customer service."
Pros: "The crew was wonderful. Our flight was delayed 3 hours and they did their best to keep all the passengers comfortable and happy."
Cons: "There was no food or entertainment to rate"
Pros: "We arrived safely"
Cons: "Delay disorganized staff that was not friendly or helpful lost luggage"
Cons: "Plane out dated . It was sad. Tinny seats. And again they boarded all group 1 at once. And all of group 2 at once. Should of done by so many seats\rows. It was horrible. I wouldn't fly American again. Unless I won a trip"
Cons: "The only reason for the one star, is that there was no entertainment or did on the flight. So those categories didn't apply. For me, in my flight experience, it's to get to where i need to be and not to be entertained. Food and drinks aren't needed, I can get that when i get to my destination."
Pros: "On board crew were friendly."
Cons: "The lady working the gate said they do not upgrade service members to first class and could not upgrade our seats. She told us that all American Airlines have different policys in different states. Which is strange."
