I really liked the personal service especially when the pilot spoke before take off. I think he was aware of people's concern about the poor wind conditions and did much to alleviate fears of flying in those conditions.

The unscheduled maintenance on our connecting flight at JFK. We just traveled the red eye from CA to wait for a plane that eventually was not "legal" to fly. We should have been given another plane immediately when maintenance is done. I really didn't mind but had to stay in a hotel for two days when I arrived at my destination because I literally could not sleep and didn't sleep for two days. (It was unsafe for me to drive home two hours away). So I had a sleep vacation after my CA vacation.

On flight entertainment has improved greatly. There are so many choices to keep you entertained. I forgot how long I was on the plane.

Plane food was not good. The crew were not as friendly, almost exhausted. There was one woman who was not sensitive or compassionate to my fellow seat mate. He was an older man who needed extra assistance. From the look of her face she didn't feel like helping him... as simple as helping him pour ice into his cup. Instead I helped my fellow neighbor. She might not feel comfortable helping a senior citizen but don't be so loud or make a face of disgust.

The check in agent was a complete &$@?(. I had luggage and asked if I there was a counter I could just go to. I was told no. After figuring out self check in at 5 am I had to tag my own bags then see her at the counter and reshow all my id etc. it would have been much easier to skip the self check in as o has asked. But that’s what I get for getting an American Airlines codeshare.

American Airlines service was horrible, both on the ground and in the air.

Flew in premium economy - relatively comfortable. They had really good cheeseburgers for sale. The flight attendants were all professional. Had a special captain who came out of the cockpit to speak to the passengers over the intercomm. He was funny, personable and helped get the flight off on the right foot. I have about 350,000 miles with Alaska and about twice that number on other airlines. This was the first time I ever experienced such a personable interaction from a pilot. Flight attendants can be entertaining but pilots usually are too serious to make the passengers happy to be on board.

They did not have Priority boarding for first class and MVP.

The seats were comfortable, and the free movies were a pleasant surprise that helped pass the time. Flight seemed quick, considering it was cross country.

I wasn't able to check in online ahead of time, and thus had no assigned seat until I had to ask for one when I arrived, which led to me being left in the dark for several nerve-wracking minutes and not being able to board the plane until everyone else did. I almost didn't get a seat on a flight that I'd made a reservation for legit over a month ago.

Both my flight out and back were close to on time, and with the slightly delayed return, the captain kept us regularly updated on what was happening. The plane was immaculate, the entertainment system had great offerings and worked flawlessly, and the crew was attentive and professional. I really like Virgin's approach to offering drinks and snacks on demand, instead of blocking the aisle with a drink cart for scheduled refreshments. It feels so much better to get a drink when I'm thirsty, not because it's time, and to be able to get to the bathroom. Bonus: I had a row to myself for my cross-country flight home. I know that's good luck, not a feature, but it felt in keeping with everything else about my experience.

Delta was smart with boarding early once they realized everyone had cleared security. Flight took off on-time and arrived early. The crew was excellent and exuded energy although it was the end of the day.

I ordered a special asian vegetarian meal and it was just plain horrible. I had to settle for the cookie. It's nice that they serve a complimentary meal on the red eye flight but the quality of the food was bad. Entertainment options were also limited although they had some recent box office entries from last year. The leg room also wasn't great but that's expected in economy I guess.
