Cons: "Lot of turbulence. Provided videos/entertainment without providing headphones"
Pros: "Great crew, snacks, comfortable flight."

Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "Very tight spaces. No tv."

Cons: "Seats not roomy enough"
Pros: "great service, easy to get on and off, snack options and drinks were all great"
Cons: "Put me on an Aeromexico plane without a seat. When I went to get seat assignments she gave me very last seat with a “window” she said. There was no window. I was absolutely closterphobic"
Pros: "Service; security gate in NY close to departure gate."
Cons: "Arrival Gate in San Jose far from exit."
Cons: "Not much food offered on a long flight."
Pros: "Everything ran smoothly on this flight. No delays before, pleasant staff, great entertainment selection, okay food options, working equipment (e.g., tv in the headrest worked, seatbelts worked, lavatories were operational, etc.). This flight met all my expectations"
Cons: "The only hiccup was the wait time on the runway before take off. Not sure if that was the airport’s fault or the airline’s fault. We must have waited 45 minutes."
Pros: "I was traveling alone with my (cranky) infant son and the crew members were kind and accommodating. Though the flight was delayed by almost 2 hours, the crew worked quickly to ready the replacement plane and the pilot made up time and got us to San Jose as quickly and safely as possible."
Cons: "The original plane had mechanical issues, which caused an almost two hour delay while waiting for a replacement plane to arrive. Since I was traveling alone with my young son, after an already long previous flight, it made for a more difficult trip."

Cons: "It’s was the best flight in my life"
Cons: "Was in seat 16A and got bumped to 12E. If you know Delta aircraft, that's exit row window, for the EC (more legroom) but middle. The problem is that nothing can compete with the exit row for leg room and being crammed between two guys isn't an upgrade either. Plus, due to proximity, got sick. And the flight was delayed leaving - due to the late arrival from ATL (Delta HQ) which had a power outage. And no video entertainment. No meals."

Pros: "Fast and comfortable"
Cons: "No tv but understanding"
Pros: "Crew was curious and quick to think of alternative solutions."

Pros: "The turkey sabdwhich was tasty. Good movies."
Cons: "Telling me the doors were going to close & I couldn't use the restroom prior to boarding. Here I was starving from flight delays. In reality the door stayed open another 15 mins & people boarded with their to go food."

Cons: "There was nothing that I didn't like."
Cons: "Poor leg room compared to jet blue"
Pros: "Comfortable seating and clean interior. Flight attendants are helpful and courteous."

Pros: "Got an upgrade to Comfort + Delta is the best major airline in USA for sure"
Pros: "The ground crew worked really hard to get us going."
Cons: "The flight was delayed 1.5 hours."
Pros: "Well I arrived at the gate 8 minutes before departure due to a late flight from San Antonio. And no one was there. I watched the plane leave 5 minutes late. The gate attendants were super rude and lazy when they came back up the ramp. I think the walk really took it out of them. There were 10 people who had run from delayed flights just standing there thinking wtf."
Cons: "AA in Phoenix is always a nightmare. They seem to hire lazy people with no idea of customer service"
Pros: "Pretty efficient for a completely full flight."
Pros: "Nothing on this flight was good except for the Captain with constant updates on the never ending delays."
Cons: "This flight was delayed for nearly three hours due to a mechanical problem with the assigned aircraft. We did not get the reason for the delay until nearly 2 hours after the scheduled departure time. Then, when a new plane was assigned. The boarding agents were rude. The flight attendant was rude."
Pros: "Got me to my destination"
Cons: "Attendants were less than welcoming with NO sense of humor. I found an empty whiskey container in the area under the seat in front of me. When I jokingly said that I found it empty and could she refill it for me, the attendant went off on me, telling me that she was too busy and couldn’t take it"
Pros: "Dear American, stop lying to your passengers stating that the flights are full, when in fact, they are not. Customers are willing to pay for upgrades but you give them no way to do so."
Pros: "Easy boarding, smooth flight, friendly staff."
Cons: "Small plane, kept hitting my head on overhead bins"
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: "A toilet had no water. The internet was not working for the whole flight"
Pros: "The tv and drinks"
Cons: "Being told why we’re delayed and then not being kept on board for so long once we arrived late"
Cons: "Constant delays, wrongful promises of when/how long delays would take"
Pros: "Crew was polite, Captain was helpful."
Cons: "Flight was delayed due to mechanical issues."
Pros: "Great flight experience overall!"
Pros: "The Seats have a nice width and a nice forward-to-back pitch. They're also brand-new upholstery. Very nice"
Cons: "American Airlines concourse in Charlotte is awful. Standing room only, and under construction. No power outlets in the plane."
Cons: "Rushing from gate to gate after sitting on the tarmac for 30 minutes after not having anything to eat on the four hour flight from PHL. Not being able to get anything healthy because the layover was reduced from 40 minutes to 5. GIVE US SOME FOOD DAMMIT!"
Cons: "Confusing in LAX as to where to go for the flight"
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."
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: "Staff was great"
Pros: "Customer service was friendly"
Cons: "So uncomfortable"
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: "The customer service!"
Cons: "Eventhough, I have accumulated over 100000 points. I don't get any seat upgrades or gold status!"
Pros: "Everything went smoothly from start to finish. On time departure. We did have to wait for a gate to open up in San Jose. It was a completely full flight."
Cons: "No gate being available upon an on time arrival."
Pros: "Staff courtesy."
Cons: "When I started this leg of my trip, I was completely exhausted having been in sitting position for almost 24 hours straight. Airline made no concessions for travelers knowing that some were just doing a simple trip and those others whose journey was very long. Narrow seats added to stress and discomfort. Airline policy seemed to be "Give me the money and I will deliver you safely. Period" Humanity seems to be last on airline list. Traveling is seriously grueling and unpleasant for all those not in First Class."
Pros: "People actually boarded by group number"
Cons: "Sitting in premium economy still doesn't giive enough room to spread out papers and get work done. Out of four segments I only got upgraded once despite having 16 upgrades in my account."
Pros: "The flight boarded really quickly with absolutely excellent service from the flight crew. The pilots and crew were so considerate, and helpful. They totally took care of all of us. From the time I got on to the flight to the time I got off the crew were there to make sure I was taken care of."
Pros: "The staff that pushed us thru the ridiculous process of going thru customs , getting our bags checked again & raced us thru to our connecting fight was amazing !!!"
Cons: "Our connecting flight was too close given we were coming back from Mexico& had to go thru customs. The security at customs were so rude to my mother who was in a wheelchair! The customs checking process was a joke! We barely made to our flight running thru that entire airport pushing my mother in a wheelchair. I can't tell you how horrible the experience was for both of us!"
Cons: ""Parked" on tarmac for 25 minutes waiting to leave LAX. Arrived half an hour late"
Cons: "More flight delays..."
Cons: "This flight transfer was totally ridiculous, and required me to exit security, take a bus, get through security again, take another bus, and then wait in a crappy gate with one single terrible food option. Whoever thinks this is a reasonable transfer ought to be subjected to it themselves before booking it for others."
Pros: "I had a family member enter the hospital 5 hours before take off. I got a full refund, even though I didn't have trip insurance."
Pros: "Staff was kind."
Pros: "The plane was a newer Boeing 738 plane and has AC power outlet at every seat. However I was not able to use their in-flight movie channel on my tablet since there were too many users."
Cons: "I am an Executive Platinum member and normally should get a meal even in economy. It was not offered on this flight. The crew didn't have a friendly attitude."
Pros: "Flight was prompt. Crew was good."
Cons: "Not seated together with my wife. Looked at paying for upgrade, but no seats together."
Pros: "Everything went smooth. Staff were professional and friendly"
Pros: "I like that it's open seating."
Cons: "I don't like how there's not de-boarding procedure. Some people try to just rush off the plane."
Pros: "The Crew were outstanding and the flights were quiet and smooth. Very comfortable flight!"
Cons: "No issues"
Cons: "THe reading light was broken"
Pros: "We boarded on time, we sat in the exit aisle, so we have a little extra room. They offered free movies, which my husband took advantage of. Pleasant flight"
Pros: "I had lots of space to my self"
Pros: "On time"
Cons: "We were so crowded. No leg room. The lady next to me was too big for her seat so it was hot and sweaty the whole way"
Cons: "airbus A320 doesn't have power ports at seats...."
Pros: "Entertainment was not available for the latest Safari browser 10."
Pros: "Smooth, quick flight!"
Pros: "Again getting moved up to first class"
Cons: "I would have liked to know before I was already seated in Coach."
Cons: "It's not the first time that I was forced to gate check my carry on luggage. They claim that the cabinet in the plan is full while actually there is plenty of spaces for multiple luggages to be there. The crew was rude and refuse to explain it in an acceptable way. When I asked why cant I carry it when there is enough space, she simply says because you just can't. Do you want to take the plan or not! This is unacceptable."
Cons: "The flight was continuously delayed and ultimately cancelled. There weren't a lot of connecting flights until much later the next day, and the customer service was fair at best."
Cons: "Flight was pushed out at least 5 times before departing. Once we even boarded and were told to get off the plane after the delay became too long, "for security purposes." The pilot was completely unprofessional - he tried to make light of the situation. At first it was funny but the jokes soon got old. There was little attempt to to update as the delay kept getting longer and longer. We learned more about the delay from our phone apps than from the crew. Most idiotic and incompetent group I've ever flown with."
