Cons: "No WiFi. Little service."
Pros: "I like that I arrived at my destination safely."
Cons: "My allergies were bothering me due to the airlines allowing animals to travel as passengers, in this case a rabbit. I am very allergic to animals. My breathing was compromised."
Cons: "Boarding was like a cattle call....my headrest was broken so couldn’t sleep upright but face down....seemed like a plane that large would have more bathrooms"
Pros: "Flight was on time. Boarding, flight, deboarding were all fine. Service was fine."
Cons: "The flight numbers that Kayak provides ate not unusable and do not match any flights with the airline. Terribly inconvenient. A call to WestJest referred me to contact Delta. The Delta rep was able to help me. The airlines provided good service. But I probably will avoid booking with Kayak again."
Cons: "They changed the gate twice on me and by the time I got to the correct one, the flight had already left."
Cons: "My lodge was damage and broken adn was new"
Pros: "Although we ended up being stuck on the plane for 2 hours prior to take off due to high volume, weather and as the pilot put it, "possible military activity" the crew kept us informed every step of the way. There was one flight attendant in particular who was so full of energy and made the unfortunate circumstances not so bad. She entertained us and kept us in the loop the entire time as did the pilots. It made the 2 hours not feel so bad which was appreciated."
Cons: "That we were delayed on the plane for two hours on a small plane but I know it was out of their control."
Cons: "Last seat by bathroom smelled of urine"
Pros: "Got moved to an aisle seat instead of the middle. The flight wasn’t full so the crew planned ahead and got several people in our party better seats."
Pros: "Boarding was fast and well planned. The pilot was talking to the passengers politely, was updating about the flight every time when it was turbulence. The crew is very smiling, sweet and nice. The snacks are good and fresh. Very clean airplane with a good fresh odor. Good job! You are fantastic!"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Almost everything. The flight boarded late but quickly. We sat on the runway for hours. We were VERY delayed for RDU arrival. Luggage was slow in getting to baggage claim. Not enough help with baggage was available."
Cons: "Being late"
Cons: "I was in first class. Neither food option sounded appealing. Recommend keeping things a bit simpler to appeal to more people. Flight was 90 minutes later"
Pros: "Everything in 1 class"
Cons: "Was unclear which zone was boarding. Legroom was comprised when passenger in immediate row ahead reclined seat early in flight."
Cons: "Delayed for no reason"
Cons: "767-400 with the old entertainment system. small screen with poor quality and a number of people's had to be reset multiple times."
Cons: "That's the flight is clean"
Pros: "Nice flight and good staff and service"
Pros: "Flight was fine. They were especially generous with the snacks."
Cons: "My one complaint is the bathroom layout of the A320. Two tiny closet bathrooms in the back for all of coach and a much larger one much larger one first class (which is like 5 rows with a mesh curtain for separation). The coach bathrooms are so small a normal person can barely get in and turn around to close the door. I question whether a larger person would be able to actually use them. I also saw the flight attendant actively turn away coach passengers trying to use the first class bathroom when it was open (not standing in the aisle or anything annoying like that). That's ridiculous to have 2 tiny bathrooms for all of coach and also to make people walk all the way to the back of the plane when you are seated much closer to the first class bathroom."
Pros: "Not much to like."
Cons: "our connecting flight was delayed 12 hours. The person who checked us in for the flight to Idaho falls checked our baggage for our return flight home, which was an entire week later. So our baggage got sent back to our starting destination and not Idaho falls"
Cons: "rescheduling Putting my wife on a different flight seating us in middle seats"
Pros: "Amazing experience thank you Delta"
Pros: "Smoorh travels"
Cons: "Economy seats mot comfortable for sleeping"
Pros: "Crew seemed nice enough and everything flew on time."
Cons: "The seats were so close together, my femur (upper leg bone) would not fit in the space provided. I am 6'3" and have been a very faithful Delta passenger, but I cannot see flying with them anymore if I have to upgrade just to get minimal comfort. It is indecent. I will investigate other airlines."
Cons: "Flight crew"
Pros: "Once again, the people were friendly, but I did not really experience much since I went to sleep as soon as the plane took off. I did, however notice that the seats reclined a little more than normal (which was amazing for me). I had a comfortable flight and caught a great nap."
Cons: "All was well"
Pros: "The staff was so friendly, and funny!! Loved the movies offered and snack choices. Updated aircraft"
Pros: "The gate attendants were extremely helpful in boarding this flight despite delays at the destination. They accommodated everyone and did their best to deliver efficiency."
Cons: "There were select in-flight crewembera that not only spoke rudely to passengers but also openly discriminated against passengers on board. They openly stated "It's always easier up front, isn't it?" They were openly rude and impatient with a group of passengers who clearly needed their interpretor and refused to provide any guidance when they group was nervous about missing their connection due to the delayed flight (they did actually miss their connection and were left to "look at the boards outside.") I personally experienced direct rudeness that was simply beyond what should be considered acceptable. A gentleman attendant was pouring ice into his bucket and due to a leak in the bag, she was pouring water all over my entire jacket sitting on my lap. Stunned by this, I loudly asked him to please stop and proceeded to ask for napkins. His response was "it's just water, it's not a big deal." I responded to say, "it's actually on my enitre jacket and I need to check that it didn't hit my laptop in my bag" and the response was "it's just water...you don't need to yell at me." I genuinely was frustrted but by no means was yelling. I was handed napkins and when he finally saw just how much water he had poured onto my jacket (the entire half of the jacket was soaked)...the response from the attendant was "Oh, now that I see how much it is...I actually am sorry." Implying..he previously actually wasn't sorry at all. I say with FULL certainty that had I been sitting "up front" or in first class...the apology would have been immediate and freely offered and would not have come with a degree measurement of damages. I am a loyal Delta flyer and more and more so I'm finding it hard to stay loyal to an airline with staff that continues to disappoint and concurrently creates such difficulties throughout the booking process."
Cons: "727 modern plane free movie free Wi-Fi"
Pros: "Efficient boarding and helpful flight attendants"
Cons: "I was sitting in a "Delta Comfort+" seat in an exit row. The extra legroom was nice, but the tray table was so far forward I could hardly reach it, and there was no armrest on the window side. The seat covers appeared to be heavily worn, with tears and padding falling out in some places."
Pros: "Delayed and told die to Air Traffic Cintrol with ninproxtove means to resolve our delay. Poor customer sefvie at JFK...indifferent and lied to us."
Pros: "Crew was wonderful"
Cons: "Nothing- good flight, I couldn't sleep but that wasn't your fault"
Pros: "Laura, who checked us in was extraordinarily great."
Pros: "The bathrooms were incredible dirty. I take longhaul flys very often and Delta definitely has the dirtiest I've seen! Bathrooms were very dirt on both flys (from and back to Rio)."
Cons: "Agents at the ticketing countet were the rudest i have ever encountered in my years of flying. Had a problem and when i asked for their assistance was given the Delta 800 number and told to call and they walked off. When i called it was a 2 hour wait for an agent. Thank goodness for their app as i was able to.change my flight with the My Delta app. Also they had overbooked the flight and rather than giving assurance to people just told us to wait and "line up orderly"."
Pros: "On time, great service"
Cons: "I'm Sky Priority and the gate agents were not enforcing zones. They called Diamond and everyone walked in. I went in and saw zone 3 in the line"
Pros: "Crew made flight enjoyable. Lots of Starbucks coffee and food. Can use wifi for free to stream movies to iPad, which is much better quality in picture and sound than onboard video."
Cons: "Selection of movies to stream to device is fewer than what is available for onboard video."
Pros: "Great crew, very efficient"
Pros: "Decent selection of movies, 2 rounds of drink offerings for a 4-hour flight"
Cons: "Despite having to use our own cell phones/devices to watch movies, there were no electrical outlets to keep our devices charged; had I known this ahead of time, I would have made sure to charge my phone fully. Boarding was also challenging as multiple people had to walk to the rear of the plane to store roller bags, and then travel back 'upstream' to their seat; one of the flight attendants became slightly testy when assisting these passengers back to their seat."
Pros: "I was arriving only 45 minutes prior to departure time. Not able to check in my luggage. AA ticketing agent allowed me to bring my garment bag through security and to be checked in at the gate. Thank you very much!"
Cons: "Nothing really. Very satisfied customer here."
Pros: "Fast food service"
Cons: "Very narrow seats in coach. If you’re sitting next to a larger person expect to be crunched."
Cons: "The seats, are getting Narrow. Very constricting."
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"
Cons: "Good value"
Pros: "Everything was great and we arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "There was crowding at the gate.. the staff was rude, sitting on the tarmac over an hour the plane was stuffy and no beverages were offered, no one was knowledgeable regarding if connecting flights would be missed,"
Pros: "Boarding was very quick and easy. There was plenty of room for everyone's cary on luggage. The movie selection was vast and encompassing."
Cons: "The seat was really uncomfortable even if reclined all the way. If the person in front of you is reclined, then you basically have to recline yourself to see the screen. Very little leg room."
Pros: "Fast all to boarding and everything"
Cons: "No comment"
Cons: "I was rebooked and the process between American and British Airways was very confusing. I was lucky to get a seat on the plane which I had to pay extra for even though I booked in January for an August flight. Also it was crazy that there was no inflight entertainment for such a long flight."
Cons: "I would have liked more Rosé."
Cons: "Getting canned and moved to a flight that is five hours later"
Pros: "Very pleasant crew"
Cons: "Booked flight with my sister 6 months before departure, paid for both tickets at the same time to find out seat assignment not together.... that could be understable only if ticket is purchased at the last minute, but that was not applicable to our situation..... we could not switch seats during flight"
Pros: "Comfort and food"
Pros: "The crew was sensational. Everyone really loved working for American, which tells me it's an employee sensitive and supportive company, and that is reflected in their attitude which is what makes my trip so pleasant. I love the darkening windows - great for daytime flying back from Europe when the whole plane becomes tranquil! Food was very good on this flight! Pilot spoke very clearly and was very informative."
Pros: "Ease of boarding, friendly and efficient crew."
Cons: "Space was very tight, music choices were terrible, no plug to charge my phone, no individual screen for entertainment, movie screen went black half way through the movie I was watching and it never came back on"
Pros: "All went well the St"
Cons: "Need more leg room"
Pros: "The flight was smooth sailing from the beginning to the end and the meal service was good."
Cons: "A little bit of turbulence during the final descent into the airport made it a bit uncomfortable."
Pros: "Nothing at all"
Cons: "It was very hot inside the plane and dificult to sleep No breakfast when we arrived in Brazil In Lima, after the flight from Miami, the period for the connection to Brazil was very short. At the airport, when I inquired about attention to get through the security line, the answered was that we have to ask for permission to pass before the passagens that was waiting in queue."
Pros: "The flight was so short we did not even get a snack, only an offer of a bottle of water; this was simply due to to short length of the flight. Basic economy had my wife and I 16 rows apart each in a middle seat. I was in the very last seat on the plane. Flight attendants were attentive and surprisingly very nice, legroom is non-existent (same as every flight in plain coach)."
Cons: "High cost to prebook seats was twice what Spirit or Frontier would charge"
Pros: "Departure and arrival time"
Pros: "Voo pontual, atendimento da tripulação, serviço de bordo, qualidade da aeronave."
Cons: "no complaints"
Pros: "Wide seats"
Cons: "Mo food service"
Pros: "Arrived in Dallas early"
Cons: "1. Flight crew stopped coach passengers in the middle of boarding to take drink orders from first class passengers. Very rude and unnecessary. 2. Flight crew allowed passengers to wait for the restroom next to the pilot access door. At least five times with single passengers waiting and once with two waiting. Crew said nothing. 3. Flight crew did not check seatbelts prior to takeoff in the forward section of coach. At least one seatbelt remained unsecured and one child had a backpack on his lap during takeoff. Very unprofessional crew. Credit card promotions over the PA system were very annoying and unintelligible."
Pros: "I was not seated with my husband when we were given our tickets and they were gracious enough to give us exit row seats by each other."
Cons: "As we were boarding the plane they told us that we needed to check our bags. No other explanation was given. I brought a carry on so that I didn’t have to check my bag. I thought maybe it was because there wasn’t enough overhead space, but as we got on the plane the overhead bins were very large and extra space was left as they began to close up the bins for take off. It was extremely annoying and I felt I was given no choice."
Pros: "Made every effort to make up time lost. Ice cream treat was nice. Appreciated express transfer help between flights which were a bit close because of delay."
Cons: "Delay leaving London due to sensor malfunction. Did not care for hot savory pastry."
Cons: "Airline valet checked luggage, deplaned us then had us wait as carry-on luggage was handed off one by one"
Cons: "Terrible plane. Old. No tv. No charge points"
Pros: "I booked a codeshare ticket through Alaska Airlines reward program. I was worried I'd be shafted when it came to seats. Not so. I had the row to myself on both flights and just 2 rows shy of first class! Very impressed."
Pros: "Staff was good"
Cons: "I thought we would fly British airways no American airline. Personal tv did not work"
Pros: "convenience of Burbank airport"
Cons: "staff at check-in couldn't get my TSA pre-check printed on my ticket, got picked out to be patted down in regular line"
Pros: "Newly refurbished plane"
Cons: "Ran out of red wine"
Pros: "Enterteiment was Very good. Plane New."
Cons: "Attendants did not give me coffee. Just yougurt. Nobody offered. But esse offered to Others."
Pros: "On time. Good leg room."
Cons: "Valet flight, i.e. even normal sized carry-on cannot be stowed above the seat We arrived at the gate 20 min before departure, due to TSA delays. But they closed the door and no one was around to even talk to. At least they put us in the next flight.... Still, as we're not checking in any bags, they could have let us in."
Pros: "Aircraft 777-200. I've seated in row 14, wich have great confort for legs."
Cons: "My itinerary said 12pm departure from Sydney to Los Angeles. However, the departure time was 10:15am, and not on Qantas airlines, but on American. It was luck I found out about the changed time. Also, since the airline changed, it took extra time to find the correct counter to check-in."
Pros: "Considering Mathew was on the way, we did excellent."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was pretty rude and quite short with passengers."
Pros: "It's American company airline So,not bad. People are not good service but still fine."
Cons: "I booked on BA I ended up on AA. US carriers to Europe gives inferior service vis a vis the competition if i wanted a US carrier I would have booked one. It was bait & switch. Compared to whats available in entertainment & comfort on flights, this was like a hires & buggy"
Pros: "personal entertainment systems and charging plugs"
Cons: "only pretzels and no headphones offered for the entertainment systems."
Cons: "The flight got late and then were told its early And I literally had to run terminals after Finding out that my luggage was still missing. It's been two days and I haven't got my luggage yet"
Pros: "It was a short flight. It was on time and very easy to board and deplane."
Pros: "Seats were comfy, LOVED the enterainment system!"
Cons: "No complaints here."
Cons: "AA cancelled my 5 am flight at midnight. I will not book with them in the future."
Pros: "The flight attendants were curtious, educated, and attentive."
Cons: "Wish the flight would've been more comfortable but we were in a smaller aircraft so I understood. Also boarding was late due to no flight attendant working the stand in Burbank for standbys until takeoff. I think had the flight attendant done so 15-20 minutes before regular boarding time, it would've gone smoother"
Cons: "Delayed over 6 hours for a two hour flight. The only compensation provided was to offer a cup of water. Sad"
